Treasure Life Moments – Project Life by Stampin’ Up #Giveaway

Stampin Up Project Life - Best Day Ever

I use to scrapbook all the time. However, I didn’t use paper to scrapbook. I was really into digital scrapbooking. I was intimidated by real scrapbooking. I was always worried that I would cut the paper wrong or that I’d have to start all over because I didn’t like where I glued an embellishment. Yes, basically the same insecurities that I have when it comes to sewing. haha Digital scrapbooking was a safe way to scrapbook, I could also click undo if I didn’t like the way I placed something. The main down side with doing it digitally, I rarely … {continue reading}

How to encourage kids to brush their teeth – #SonicareSmile

Philips Sonicare toothbrush for Kids #SonicareSmile

For kids, brushing their teeth is not an activity that comes naturally. You have to keep reminding them every single day even if you explain to them the importance of this habit. It’s a boring moment that often, they choose to forget. Find a trigger for their teeth brushing time We have two specific moments in a day that we use as triggers to help remind our kids to brush their teeth. Those triggers are easier to use during the week, but with a little bit of discipline, they can also be used during the weekend. Our first trigger is … {continue reading}

Traveling to the US – Secret Beach – #TELUS

Parsons Beach - Kennebunk Maine

We recently went on a family vacation to Kennebunkport in Maine. We knew we wanted a beach vacation and we didn’t want to travel too far. Going to Maine was an easy decision. We visited Kennebunkport 12 years ago, before we had kids, and we loved it. It’s about a 5 hour drive, which means we could enjoy the beach on the very first day. We all LOVE the beach! When traveling, you still want to be able to stay connected even if you are on ”vacation”. I think it’s important to have in case of emergencies, check maps, read … {continue reading}

Wall Stencils are all the rage! I honestly think it’s something that will continue to be a decor trend for a very long time. It’s a quick and easy way to give rooms around your home a ‘‘wow’’ factor. Plus, wall stencils can be used on other things than just walls. They can easily be used on furniture, carpets, curtains, pillows, fabric, and so much more!     I came across a stencil company that is completely different from others. StenCilit uses Scandinavian Designs to inspire the stencils they create. I seriously adore all of their designs. I actually own … {continue reading}

A new routine is starting soon – #NaturallyAtHome

Orange Naturals Mom

It’s August and you know what that means… school is starting up soon! I can’t believe that summer vacation is almost over, it feels like it just started. Probably feels like that because we are just starting to get summer-like weather (it’s been a strange summer). I’m not looking forward to back to school… I LOVE having my kids with me at home and I’m not ready to say that my baby is starting school. Ugh… just the thought of it brings tears to my eyes. Would you believe that I followed Gabrielle’s bus to school on her first day … {continue reading}
