Raw Spice Bar Review

raw spice bar review

Ever feel like with the right spices you could take your dinner game to the next level? I like cooking well enough but I tend to stick with the same old things. You know the tried and true recipes that turn out time and again. But they could be better.

Raw Spice Bar contacted me to try out their monthly flavour kits and I thought it would be a great way to integrate fresh ground spices and new flavours into my nightly dinner routine. This is my Raw Spice Bar review.  Continue Reading…

Little Girls Gift Guide

November 26, 2016

I started with the Little Boys Gift Guide because in the past I have found it harder to shop for my son. This is the first year he has been really vocal about what he likes. My daughter has been really clear about what she has wanted for Christmas since she could speak. So in honour of her and all the cute little girls stuff out there this is the Little Girls Gift Guide.

Shopping for my kids is one of the extra fun parts of Christmas shopping. My son turned 5 and is finally more vocal about what he wants for Christmas. This means that instead of guessing I can get things that I know he will love. This is my little boys gift guide.

Mackage – up to 50% off select styles

Soia and Kyo – also upto 50% off

JCREW – 40% off. This sale is likely to change as it the week continues (watch for Free Shipping to come back especially for Cyber Monday). I almost bought this but I already have a JCREW red sweater. Still I can not stop thinking about it!

JCREW Factory – 50% – 60% off. This is the best I have seen from factory. Maybe an extra 10% off on Cyber Monday but since they have a higher original discount I am not sure they will offer that this year. Also free shipping on orders over $50. I have already taken advantage of this sale. Picked up this and this and these for my daughter.

When H&M launched online shopping a few weeks ago I gave it a try and ordered a few things. They shipped fairly quickly but I would expect it to be even quicker after the excitement of the launch is over. I picked up some things for my kids for Christmas and the coat above for myself.

I think that everyone can agree that part of Christmas morning is Christmas pyjamas. It is one of those presents that I give everyone on Christmas eve to create some more Christmas magic. The Best Christmas pyjamas walk the line between nostalgia and being unabashedly festive.
