DIY this: Favourite IKEA Hacks

The IKEA Hack. If you have spent any time at all on Pinterest, you have no doubt come across a few. The idea? You take a piece of IKEA furniture which, although modern and well designed, is probably in both your neighbours and pals’ places too. And who wants their stuff to look like everybody else’s? For me, a well-designed space doesn’t have to cost much, but really should have personality. Interesting artwork, re-furbished … [Read More...]

10 Things You Should Do With Your Kids Every Summer

10 Things You Should Do With Your Kids Every Summer

Eighteen summers, that’s all we have with our children before they leave the nest. The weight of that number is weighing heavy on me lately. I am already at summer #12 and #10 with my daughters. We long ago surpassed the halfway mark and I am acutely aware of how fast it’s all gone. Summer, like our children’s growth, is fleeting. Both need to be embraced without reservation and with complete enthusiasm. That’s why I believe there … [Read More...]

Why the GoPro is the Perfect Family Travel Companion

I mean, sure that's adventurous and everything but it's not as hardcore as this parenting gig is. Seriously, if there's any group on earth that needs to keep their hands free while capturing all the action, … [Read More...]

Safe Winter Driving Tips from Ford Canada

I love clearing snow off my car and getting into an ice cold vehicle. Said no one ever. Let's face it, winter driving is a bit of a chore. It's also the most dangerous time of year to drive with the elements stacked against us in every single way—ice on the roads, heavy or drifting snow and fewer daylight hours are just a few of the obstacles we face in the … [Read More...]
