Style Trap Glue Board – Keeping pests away naturally

The warm weather is back and that means the pests are as well. Bugs, spiders, mice and more creepy crawlers. You could use sprays or mouse traps but let’s face it, sprays aren’t environmentally friendly and who wants to have to reset traps?

There’s an amazing product known as the Style Trap Glue Board that is pet friendly, non-toxic, can be thrown out instead of emptied, doesn’t need to be reset and is super stylish.

Style-Trap-Glue-Board-Keeping-pests-away-naturally

These glue traps are easy to assemble and they come with stylish sticker covers that will take away the ugliness of knowing that it’s a trap for pests. This product can be used anywhere in your house as well as outdoors but for those of us in Canada, it can only be used outdoors in the Summer due to the glue freezing from our cold temperatures although it can still be used inside during Winter months.

These products sell for $4.99 USD and are definitely worth the switch.

OgoSport Disk Mini By PlaSmart

We love being outside especially now that the weather is a bit nicer and because being active is important. While we do go for many walks and adventures, we like to have fun and play games to stay active as well. We recently had the opportunity to have some active fun while trying out the Ogo Disk Mini by PlaSmart.

OgoSport-Disk-Mini-By-PlaSmart
The Ogo Disk Mini is a hand-held trampoline that is very bouncy, buoyant and durable. They come in a pack of 2 with a OgoSoft ball and sell for $29.99 CDN. This is like an all-in-one toy. You can use it as a tennis racket or replace the ball with water balloons for a fun summer activity.. Also it can be used as a frisbee or anything else your mind can think of 😀

OgoSport-Disk-Mini-By-PlaSmart

These are an excellent way to get the whole family outside to be active while having a great time doing it. We absolutely enjoy this product as do the kids which is why you should totally get a Ogo Disk Mini and enjoy some active play.

OraMD “The Mouth Doctor” Toothpaste/MouthWash

I am going to start by saying that if you follow us, you know we love our all-natural products. This has to be at the top of the list with its all natural ingredients. Nothing in this bottle is bad for you.

Here are the few ingredients – 100% pure Botanical Oils of:

  • Almond
  • Spearmint
  • Peppermint

And that’s it! Pure, Healthy, Clean Goodness… No chemicals that will harm you.. That’s what we all want in life, is it not???

 

OraMD-"The-Mouth-Doctor"-Toothpaste/MouthWash

 

I LOVE gum and find that this smells just like my favorite Spearmint kind! So I was pretty excited to try this all in one oral care. It comes in a 5oz bottle and this will last you a month or two depending on how much you use and how many times you brush your teeth in the run of a day!

At first, like with any OraMD product, there’s a slight kick but then you get use to it. I promise that it gets easier to use after a few uses.. I LOVE how squeaky clean my teeth feel after just 1 use. Even my little man wanted to try it. He thought it was strong and didn’t want to use it anymore but he tried it and that’s all that matters 🙂 If you find it too strong, start with just 1 drop for about a week to get yourself used to it.

OraMD-"The-Mouth-Doctor"-Toothpaste/MouthWash

So to include a little personal story here, I can honestly say that I find my “Morning breath” not as bad as it used to be. Actually I barely notice it anymore (not saying others don’t though LOL) but I don’t wake up with that bad breath/taste in my mouth and I think this is awesome..

Overall, I would recommend you trying this product for yourself so that you can be the judge. If you are like us and want your family to live a healthier lifestyle, then this OraMD mouth care should be on your next grocery list.. You can purchase it by clicking HERE

All Natural Caffeine Free Teas 4 Kids

Do your little ones ask for a cup of tea just like mommy and daddy drink? Our little guy does and we usually go with a hot chocolate that he pretends  is his tea. Thankfully there are teas that are made specifically for children. One that we really enjoy, as does the little one, is Teas 4 Kids. This delicious tea for kids is made with tasty pieces of fruit and blossoms that give it an amazing taste. This also means that these teas are all natural and caffeine free.

WP_20150430_069

What we really enjoy about these products is the fact that they’re healthy and free of caffeine because we all know that it stunts your growth and it can be addictive. We also really like  that these products are made by parents who want their kids to drink healthy drinks,  just like us.

WP_20150519_035

Just a few great facts about these teas:

  • GMO-Free
  • Caffeine-Free
  • All-Natural
  • Non-Dairy
  • Fair Trade
  • No Added Sugar
  • No Artificial Flavors

The yummy teas that we were sent are the Mango Sweetie Tea which has tart pineapple, juicy mango, orange and tangerine slices, strawberry slices, safflower and marigold blossoms.  The other tea that we received is the Bubby Loves Blueberry Tea which contains blueberries, cornflower, hibiscus and wallow blossoms, elderberries, pomegranate and apple bits.

Don’t they sound absolutely scrumptious?

We really enjoyed the products from Teas 4 Kids and can’t wait for our guests to try them out as well. We will definitely be getting more and suggest that you try them as well. For only $12.99 USD why not buy something healthy for the kids, right?

Gro-Clock By The Gro Company

Do your children have a hard time knowing when it’s time to go to bed and when it’s time to wake up? Sometimes we have a hard time with our little guy. He’s up before the sun rises and he wants to stay awake all night!

Gro-Clock-By-The-Grow-Company

 

Thankfully there’s a company by the name of The Gro Company who has created a clock that helps children know when it’s time to get up and when it’s time to sleep.

Gro-Clock-By-The-Grow-Company

 

Check out some of its great features below:

  •  Glowing screen shows images of stars and sun to communicate ‘sleep’ and ‘wake-up’ time
  • Stars go out one-by-one during the night to show the passing of time
  •  Key-lock option
  • Option to set two separate wake-up times (weekday/weekend or night-time/day-time nap)
  •  Adjustable screen brightness
  •  Silent operation
  •  Optional audible alarm feature
  •  Mains powered (adapter included)
  •  Suitable from age 2+ years
  • Conforms to highest applicable British and European Standards
  •  NEW Educational option of showing digital clock during the ‘stars to sun’ countdown
  • NEW ‘Mr Star’ night time graphic
  •  NEW Beautifully illustrated bedtime storybook included! (English only)

 

We really like that this product not only helps children with a sleep & wake routine but the fact that it also allows you to teach kids about time. We really like that the clock also works as a nightlight with the gentle glow that it emits and of course the cute little faces that the sun and moon graphic have. Adorable!

We were impressed with this product as our little guy is actually sleeping until the sun comes up. Compared to the times before when he was up at 5 am. If your child has a hard time with wake up times this is the product for you.

Sweet Goodness by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming – A #GlutenFree cookbook from Penguin Random House Canada

We love to bake and we also love books so we’re quite excited to introduce you to a deliciously tasty gluten-free cookbook from Penguin Random House Canada . This book is called Sweet Goodness by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming , best-selling authors of Quinoa 360.

This cookbook is full of delicious looking gluten-free recipes that require the multiple flours that people with Celiac use and will more than likely have on hand. It also has great information regarding cooking, dry baking ingredients and illustrations that look so good that you could eat the picture, lol. Seriously though, awesome looking pictures!

Sweet-Goodness-by-Patricia-Green-and-Carolyn-Hemming-A-#GlutenFree-cookbook-from-Penguin-Random-House-Canada

We actually enjoyed baking with the different flours thanks to this cookbook and can’t wait to bake some more sweet treats. We definitely think that it’s worth checking out. The recipes are simple and easy to follow. We bookmarked a few of our faves and are excited to get our “bake on”.

“What sets this book aside from the onslaught of gluten-free cookbooks on the market is it’s gorgeous, decadent photos that will make your stomach growl, as well as Carolyn and Patricia’s bright, positive, engaging and infectious writing style.”

Tranquil Turtle from Cloud B. Perfect for your little ones

We have to admit that putting the little one to bed is sometimes a struggle. He fights and wants to stay up to watch television or play with his toys. Bedtime is a time for relaxing and you can’t relax if you’re all wound up from playing 🙂
Thankfully there are companies that make products to help! One that we are absolutely impressed with is Cloud B.

Tranquil-Turtle-from-Cloud-B.-Perfect-for-your-little-ones
Cloud B makes adorable stuffed animals that play tranquil music and sounds. There’s so many to choose from, but we reviewed the Tranquil Turtle which projects a moving underwater light effect of Ocean waves and glows in a relaxing Aquamarine color that helps children fall asleep with ease.

Tranquil-Turtle-from-Cloud-B.-Perfect-for-your-little-ones

From the first day of having the Tranquil Turtle the little one is asleep within 5 minutes of laying down. We absolutely love this product and recommend it to anyone who has kids or anyone who has a hard time to sleep as it is a great way to relax before bed.

Some great info on Cloud B is they won the 2013 infant/toddler toy of the year.. Here’s a sneak peek at how relaxing the music really is.. (There’s 2 different sounds on this fella) –

Nerf Flash Flood Super Soaker by Hasbro

It’s no surprise that Summer is hot and keeping cool is essential. Being outside is also essential when you’ve been stuck in the house for the past 7 months. Gotta love Winter on the East Coast of Canada.

Nerf-Flash-Flood-Super-Soaker-by-Hasbro

What’s more fun than being outside in the sun and keeping cool at the same time? Nothing, lol! That’s where the Nerf Flash Flood Super Soaker by Hasbro comes in. This awesome water gun can hold 3 ounces of water and can hit targets up to 38 feet away! Is that not awesome?

 

It has 2 separate nozzles, one for a Flood Strike which is like a bucket of water being thrown at you and one for a Flash Strike which is the pump-action shot!

We love the way this water blaster works and the distance it can shoot. You’ll definitely soak your opponent with this awesome Super Soaker. Once again this brand has met our expectations.

Nerf Rebelle Super Soaker Tri Threat Blaster by Hasbro

The warmer weather is finally upon us and that means outdoor fun! What’s more fun than not being stuck in the house? Water gun fights of course.

Nerf has been around since we were both kids and we’re happy to have their products for the kids to play with throughout their childhood’s too.

Nerf-Rebelle-Super-Soaker-Tri-Threat-Blaster-by-Hasbro

We recently had the opportunity to test out the Nerf Rebelle Super Soaker Tri Threat Blaster by Hasbro and we love it as do the kids.

These are a few of our favorite things about this water blaster:

• 3-Stream Soakage
• Holds 25 ounces of water
• Blasts water up to 35 feet
• Pump to blast water (no trigger)

There’s at least 45 pumps before the tank is emptied which definitely makes for a fun water fight. No filling every few shots! We also really like the distance that the water shoots as you can easily hide and soak the other person.

We really enjoyed playing around with this water blaster and totally recommend it to keep cool and have fun this Summer.

#HJrecipes — Our homemade steak and cheese stuffed green peppers

The last time that we made stuffed green peppers they were delicious! So we decided to spice it up a notch and try a steak and cheese stuffed pepper and it turned out to be absolutely divine. Below is our recipe. We hope you’ll try it out and let us know what you think.

 

#HJrecipes--Our-homemade-steak-and-cheese-stuffed-green-peppers

What you’ll need:

1 green pepper
1/4 cup of red pepper
1/4 cup of onion
VH Gluten-free Garlic Spare Rib Sauce
1 pkg. Chinese Fondue
1 cup grated cheese.

 

#HJrecipes--Our-homemade-steak-and-cheese-stuffed-green-peppers

Dice the red pepper and onion, set aside. Fry the  fondue meat. Add the diced onion and red pepper to the meat and continue frying until tender. Add 1/4-1/2 cup of spare rib sauce and continue cooking until the sauce has evaporated.
Cut the green pepper in half and gut out the seeds. Fill with the meat mixture and cover with grated cheese. Bake on 350°F for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the pepper has become soft.

I also have another version of this recipe and you can find it here —> http://wp.me/p3CCuE-v0

*There may be left over meat. We thought we’d use it as donair meat and made our own donair sauce to go with it. Find the recipe HERE.

Homemade Donair Sauce #HJrecipes

We recently made steak and cheese stuffed peppers and ended up with extra meat. We decided to fry it a bit longer to make it crunchier. And of course we needed donair sauce!

We used a very simple recipe that pretty much everyone we know uses too. We hope you’ll give it a try.

Homemade-Donair-Sauce-#HJrecipes

What you’ll need:

2/3 cup of evaporated milk
2/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of white vinegar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper (optional)

Mix all ingredients except for the vinegar. After everything is mixed add the vinegar and beat quickly. You’ll notice it getting slightly thicker. Refrigerate for a few hours to let it set. Serve with donair meat or any other type of thinly fried meat.

I have thought about becoming a vegan a lot lately and I have tried out different kinds of vegan products to get a taste for it. I came across this company called Vegan Pure and they make this delicious drink that I am going to talk to you about today!

Vegan-Pure-all-in-one-Drink

I am going to be completely honest here, when I first tried it, I didn’t think it was going to be something I was going to like as it had a taste that I just couldn’t get used to, until I decided to throw some fruit in with it and guess what??? I just love it. I even replaced the water with pineapple juice (or any juice of choice). It’s so good that I just can’t get enough of it. I definitely recommend trying it this way at first an you’ll be hooked. I get so excited when its my smoothie time.

Vegan-Pure-all-in-one-Drink

It’s so simple to make, the basic recipe is to add one scoop of Vegan Pure to 300 ml of water but like I mentioned, you can do it any way you like. (I would love to hear your recipes for this drink!!!)

Vegan Pure all in one is packed full of healthy ingredients, vitamins, & minerals

Interview With “Keep From Falling” Author Amy Miller

We love to read and we love to promote so we’re honored to have had the opportunity to interview and promote first time author of “Keep From Falling” and long time friend of Jason from Frugal Canadian Coupon Mom; Amy Miller.

 

Amy is an independent author who resides in a small and cozy town in the most northern region of New Brunswick, Canada, where she lives with her son and husband. She recently published her very first novel called “Keep From Falling”. A story about a young woman who needs to decide whether she stays with her girlfriend or the new man whom she fell in love with at first. To make the task even more strenuous, a stranger comes to town with some secrets that weren’t meant to be revealed. Will she keep from falling or just let go?

Below Amy shared a few things with us regarding her book, the writing process, writing advice and more. We hope you’ll enjoy.

 

Interview-With-"Keep-From-Falling"-Author-Amy-Miller

 

What inspired you to write your first book?

I’ve always wanted to write a book and have been writing stories and creating characters since I was 8, but it wasn’t until my mom passed away in 2012 that I decided to finally go for it.

How did you come up with the title?

I was actually inspired by lyrics of a song called Only One by Alex Band. The words really fit for my characters.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

There are a lot of messages in Keep From Falling… But I think the main message I set out to write was that finding yourself, truly allowing yourself to explore who you are, can hurt people you love but in the end it’s the only way to freedom and happiness.

Are experiences in your book based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

Yes and no. This is a tricky question. There are many aspects of the book that came from real life, especially all of the emotions expressed, but as far as the plot is concerned, that was purely thrown together by my imagination.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

I’m a big fan of Colleen Hoover, Mia Sheridan, and CJ Roberts at the moment. I love their writing styles as well as their story ideas!

What are your current projects? (book wise)

I’m currently working on two titles at the moment. They will be book 2 and 3 in the Markson Grove series. I haven’t decided which will come first as their timelines are relatively the same, but I have a pretty good idea. They are each stand-alone stories but have many of the same characters introduced in Keep From Falling.

 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

For a while writing from a teenaged male perspective was a bit daunting. I had a hard time getting my mind wrapped around the right dialect as well as the right thought process. I used to have to spend hours trying to put myself there. Now, though, I don’t find it difficult at all. I can switch back and forth from male to female characters with ease.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Keep writing. That’s the biggest thing. Don’t give up and don’t let others dictate what you like to write. Chances are if you like it, then someone else out there will like it too.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you for all of the love and for connecting to my characters as I’ve connected to them. I hold Skylar especially close to my heart and all of the love and support I’ve received about her pain has been incredibly touching.
