Squashed from PlaSmart – Great for Family Game Night

I absolutely love Plasmart toys. They are fun and super durable. They have products for kids of all ages (including adult-kid hehe). We recently had to chance to try out their game called Squashed. This is a 3D game that the whole family can play.. We love playing ours on family-game-night 🙂 I loved that you can work on more than one playing surface and you really gotta think of each move you make!!! I loves me a good thinkin’ game. 

squashed game

 

How to play:

Roll the die and strategically eliminate other players by landing on them or in the grey squares to eliminate 1 whole cube side. Eliminate your opponents by strategically moving up or around the cube in any vertical or horizontal direction. Be the last player with a pawn on the SQUASHED cube and you will win the game.

I find the best part about it is just when you think your about to win, you just might lose your last piece if someone Squashes you. It’s so fun that you never know how the game will really turn out each time.

Includes: Squashed Cube, Base, King Token, 16 Pawns and easy instructions.

L’Oreal Paris Hair Expertise Arginine Resist x3

I want to start off by saying thank-you to Influenster and L’Oreal Paris for choosing me for this Free Voxbox. I was over the moon excited to try these products. My hair definitely needed some TLC to say the least. I was super excited when my box arrived.

So let me tell you a little about my hair. Well first off, I normally keep my hair in a pony tail. It straight & thin and I never know how to style it or what to do with it since it’s just so dull.. Oh and when I am in the shower, it tends to fall out by the handfuls (seriously though!!).

kk

For the last week and a half that I have been using L’Oreal Paris’ Hair Expertise Arginine x3, I’ve actually noticed a huge difference in amount of hair that’s being left behind on my hair brush (the hair brush don’t lie lol), there is at least half of what there used to be and I am really impressed. My hair feels healthier & stronger and just over all happier 🙂

I use this trio 3x per week (sometimes 4) and like I said, I can notice a difference in my hair. Overall I am super satisfied with this product, it’s not all the time that a product promises to do certain things and actually does them. If you want to get what you pay for, then I really recommend trying the Arginine x3 product line from L’Oreal Paris… because your hair is totally worth it!!! I look forward to trying these products again since finding this new confidence that I didn’t know I had since switching hair care lines

Little Life Box monthly subscription box. Something for the whole family..

This is actually our second box that we are reviewing from this subscription box company called “Little Life Box” (you can see the other review here)and I gotta say that the whole family just love them! (and if you know me then you know that I’ve been jumping back and forth on this vegetarian thing) and either way I know we all want to eat healthier and that’ exactly what this company does for its customers. They allow us to have a variety of snacks and personal items that are simply healthier for us.

Each month you are sent a beautiful 100% recycled box that contains healthy and delicious snacks and other things. It is random each month so you don’t always get the same stuff 🙂 I was 110% satisfied with my box and I love it because when you are sent products like that, it gives you a chance to try new things and stuff you may not have else wise tried. It’s wonderful

You have the choice between three (3) types of boxes

  • Original
  • Or Vegan (which I think is just great)
  • Gift boxes (yes you can gift them as well)

I think you guys should check them out! Here’s a list of pricing if you want to subscribe:

Things I’ve learned over the winters with kids!!!! Who agrees?

We live in Canada and winters are harsh! Check out my list of stuff that we always have on hand!

Things-I've-learned-over-the-winters-with-kids!!!!-Who-agrees?

 

Here are some things that’s I learned this winter so far!!

 

#1…. 3 pairs of snow pants are almost a necessity. One pair strictly for school and the other 2 are in case one gets wet!!! Sometimes the snow gets them soaked in minutes….

#2…. I have gone through 2 pairs of boots so far and I still needed to get another pair!!! I really recommend using boots with the felts that come out! I haven’t had a problem with them yet!! Woot woot!!!

#3….Mits… Oh my gosh Mits… Honestly I don’t even know how many we have been through or go through on a nice day out… I would play it safe and make sure u have at least 15 pairs of gloves/Mits per kid LOL..

 

#4. It’s always good to have a few HATS hanging around also!!!

Why do we still have our Christmas tree up? Read why we are leaving it up all year:

Okay so some of you may have seen the picture that I shared with my Christmas tree still up. First off I want to know, “when do you usually take down your Christmas trees”??

 

Typically we would normally take ours down after January 1st, usually the first week of January at the latest. Well this year we are doing something a little different and we decided we are keeping ours up all year!

 

tree1

 

I figured we could decorate it according to the holidays!!! Like for Valentine’s Day we are gonna add some homemade crafts and lovey dovey stuff to it, for Easter we will add some eggs and Eastery stuff!!!! I think it’s a great idea.. I love the happiness and comfort that it brings me when I have it plugged in at night around Christmas and I wanted to have that year-round so that’s what we are doing  🙂 …

 

I will be posting picture of the tree as we decorate it with different themes!! Make sure to check back so you don’t miss it 🙂

 

Thanks for stopping by!!!

 

And of course I just gotta know , Does anyone else do this??!!!!!!!

Full moons and mood changes! Coincidence??

Do you have a child whose attitude coincides with the cycle of the moon? We do & its noticeable, to us anyway!

The last Full Moon was on January, 23/2016  & we swear that for 3 days leading up to the full moon our little guy became a little devil (to put it nicely lol). He would talk back, be purposefully defiant and just not be himself.

Full-moons-and-mood-changes!-Coincidence??

This is nothing new to us as it’s something that’s went on since he first became “dependent”. 3 days before the full moon which happens every month of the year, our little one becomes a totally different little being. Once that full moon’s gone he becomes the little guy that brings his dishes to the sink without being asked and the little guy that hangs up his stuff.

We believe that Astrology is pretty accurate it, in his case anyways.

Could it be that certain astrological occurrences  may possibly have an effect on children and human beings in general?
