There's nothing like having friends in your life where you can just be yourself around. A good friendship can last a lifetime. I've been fortunate enough to have the same group of girl friends for over 25 years. Although we are all married with kids and live in different parts of the world, I love that if I need any one of them, they would be there in a heartbeat to help me in any way.

Vaseline Intensive Care Repair Serum Review


Now that we're in the middle of summer, wearing pants is not an option. With the last few days of hot weather we've been having, I'm been super thankful for some of my favorite skincare products that have helped my skin stay not only hydrated, but stay moisturized and healthy,

Over the last few months I've been using Vaseline's Intensive Care Repair Serum. The Intensive Care Repair Serum line is designed to help moisturize and heal dry skin and also helps moisture 10 times better than most moisturizers. I was sent all three types, the advanced relief, deep repair and radiance restore with pure cocoa butter.



I've always been a fan of Vaseline. I use their petroleum jelly on my feet every night during the winter months to help my feet from cracking and being rough. So when I had the opportunity to try out their intensive care line, I was excited.

The advanced relief helps heal and calm really dry skin with moisture. It's gentle on your skin and has the scent of rose and amber with a vanilla aroma. I loved using this on my upper body after getting out of the shower. 

The deep repair helps moisturizes and heal rough and dry skin. This was what I used on my feet every night before bed, which not only helped my feet stay hydrated, but also kept my feet soft and smooth and feeling great.

Lastly I tried the radiance restore with pure cocoa butter. I didn't use this daily like I did the other two, but I did use it maybe twice a week as it helps dry, dull skin and leaves you with the great smell of cocoa butter, one of my favorite scents.

All three products worked fantastic on my skin and are a must have year round. They work great in the summer and I can't wait to use them this winter to help my skin stay hydrated during the cold months.

Vaseline Intensive Care Repair Serum retails between $7.77-$11.49 and can be found at most drug stores and grocery stores. For more information about the Intensive Care Repair Serum line and other products from Vaseline be sure to head to vaseline.ca.

Camping with Kandoo #KandooKids


With August just around the corner, it's hard to believe that summer is almost over. It definitely feels like we're just getting use to the beautiful warm weather. I'm not looking forward to wearing layers again. So maybe August won't fly by like June and July did. Maybe.

One of my favorite summer activities to do with my family is go camping. There are so many different types of camping you can do, campsite camping, festival camping, wild camping and glamping. Our favorite is campsite camping. We have a pretty big family, so once a year we all get together and head to a campsite and camp for two to three days for Father's Day weekend.





It's so much fun and makes great memories that each and everyone of us will remember. Since we go camping in a huge campsite, that means no showers and we get to use the awesomeness that is an outhouse to use the restroom in. (Not fun at all)

So I make sure when I pack our essentials we need to help us get through a couple days without running water, hand sanitizer and a water carrier is a must have along with Kandoo Flushable Wipes for both kids and adults. Since the wipes are not only flushable, but also biodegradable, they're safe for sewer and septic systems. They're also moistened with lotion which ensure a thorough fresh cleaning and cleans up 30% better than toilet paper. This is perfect to have on a camping trip with no running water.



So if you're going on a camping trip this summer, be sure to make sure you pack those Kandoo wipes to help both adults and little ones stay fresh and clean.

@MartinsFI Fantasy Island Family Pack Giveaway



We have a little over a month left before our daily routines are back to action and our kiddos are headed back to school for another year. Although I'll be excited to get back to my normal routine, I will definitely miss summer and spending time with the kids.

It's been pretty busy over here so far this summer. Between the hubby out of town for work, family barbecues and all three kids birthday's are back to back, planning summer vacations can some times be difficult for me. Not only are they a lot to plan, but they're expensive as well. I imagine it can be that way for most of us.

So I'm really excited to share with you an amazing family friend amusement park where I'll be taking my family in the next couple of weeks. I'm talking about Martin's Fantasy Island.


Martin's Fantasy Island has been open for families for over 50 years. It's located in Grand Island, New York, just minutes away from Buffalo & Niagara Falls. So it's pretty close to those of us living in Ontario!

The park has lots of rides that include a water park, miniature golf, shows and attractions for the entire family to enjoy.






So I'm excited to be working with them to give one of our Canadian readers a chance to take their family there this summer with an amazing family giveaway.

The prize includes five admission passes, five food passes and to help you get to your destination, a $50 gas gift card! How awesome is that?! To enter all you need to do is leave a comment letting me know what would you do first during your visit? Will you go to the water park, check out a live show? The giveaway will end Monday, August 3rd, so you'll still have plenty of time to plan a trip before the kids head back to school!

For more information about Martin's Fantasy Island, be sure to check them out online on their website as well as Facebook and Twitter!

Let The @Netflix_CA Streaming Adventure Begin! #StreamTeam


I remember what it was when I was a kid. Sitting home watching my favorite shows and movies whenever they came on TV, that would then have my siblings and I pretending afterwards that we were on that same adventure.

Life is a little bit easier for our kiddos with Netflix. With a touch of a button they can watch lots of adventure shows and movies as many times as they want without commercials or waiting for it to come on television.

My kids have been loving their summer so far, hanging out with friends, getting into their own mini adventures, but our weather this summer has been kind of wacky, it's been raining quite a bit where we live. So on rainy days when the kids are stuck inside, it's great to know they can watch adventure happen on screen watching kid friendly shows and movies on Netflix. There are lots of great titles to feel their adventure needs.

Speaking of adventure movies and shows, if your kids are fans of the How To Train Your Dragon movies, then they're going to love that Netflix has just released a television series, Dragons: Race to the Edge following both Hiccup and Toothless. This series is filled with adventure that will keep your kiddos entertained. 



Along with the Dragons: Race to the Edge series, here are a list of a few other adventure shows/movies that you can stream on Netflix. 


3. H20: Mermaid Adventures (Season 2 is now streaming)

One of my childhood favorite shows, The Goonies is now on Netflix. I love that I can watch this childhood favorite of mine with my kids. Another favorite of ours is The Adventures of Puss in Boots. This is one of my son's all time favorite, so it streams pretty often in our house. 

What are some of your family's favorite adventure shows or movies to stream?
