I have learned many things throughout my undergrad, but one thing I didn’t learn from books or professors is this: A photo is a home away from home. Our lives are fast pace; we drift from work, to school, to the gym, the grocery store, the office, church, that dance recital, their hockey game- and before we know it, Christmas is upon us. Sometimes we need to take a moment to reflect, look back on our accomplishments, those precious moments together, and remember what it is that keeps us going. Posterjack can help you regain time with their one of a kind canvas prints, and they’re printing just in time for Christmas.
With her youngest just starting college, the middle child running through school and work, and the oldest moving to Saudi Arabia to pursue a career; I wanted to find a Christmas gift that could soothe the ache of an empty nest. Posterjack has been helping me capture life’s memorable moments for years, and I knew they would be just as dependable this year, as they were last. From the Poster Jack workshop to the family walls, Posterjack’s prints on canvas and their framed keepsakes are always a cherished gift. They never cease to amaze me with their high quality specialty prints, the photo remains true to colour and their printing process adds life to every image. Read more…
Buying Winter Boots For Women
If last year’s search for a pair of winter boots proved so unsuccessful that you ended up with blue toes, and a bruised bottom, then you obviously did not shop Columbia. Columbia boots are popular because of their warmth, durability and comfort features.
Who says you need to sacrifice style for warmth? Along with warming insulation, the perfect winter boot for women should not only be waterproof, but above all, stylish. The Minx Collection from Columbia provides a versatile boot that combines style with comfort.
With waterproof woven synthetic construction, 200g of insulation combined with Columbia’s patented Omni-Heat Reflective technology, your feet are bound to stay warm, dry and comfortable in all types of weather conditions.
My daughter was in an ATV accident this pass July, which left her with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). For my daughter her TBI was both devastating and life changing with permanent significant consequences. Winter is a time when we are all particularly vulnerable to suffering traumatic brain injuries. It is easy to suffer falls and accidents due to icy street and sidewalk conditions can result in accidents that can lead to traumatic brain injury.
This winter I wanted to insure my daughter was wearing footwear with good traction to prevent falls. With Omni-Grip™ non-marking traction rubber outsole, Columbia ensures stability during winter’s icy conditions. Read more…

Recently Tim Hortons introduced a new flavour of coffee. After years of its original blend, they have entered the dark side. The new addition, made from Arabica beans, marks the first time in the chain’s 50-year history that Tim Hortons have offered any coffee apart from its usual blend. The dark roast blend was tested in London, Ontario, and in Columbus, Ohio, and received favorable reviews before being released to 4,500 locations. The new blend offers hints of citrus, cocoa and earthy tones with a rounded body. As with most other Tim Hortons coffee products, the dark roast is available in a variety of “brew-yourself” sizes.

Your baby or toddler spends anywhere from 10 to 16 hours each day asleep. As she snoozes, her little nose is within inches of her bedding. During this time, they are lying directly on the mattress, breathing in and absorbing chemical off-gassing. Therefore it is definitely worthwhile to purchase a crib mattress cover. The Snoozy Waterproof Mattress pad is a great option for moms looking to offer an organic product, but still looking for waterproofing.
The mattress pad is made with a 100% sateen cotton surface filled with 100% cotton stuffing giving any crib/toddler bed a silky and luxurious feel. The Safety “Stay On” Corners make it easy for you to slip it over your mattress and the cover is designed to fit just about any type of crib out there, even toddler beds when your child makes that transfer. The extra-deep sides keep this mattress pad in place at all times, no matter how thick the mattress
I found it to fit snugly to my daughter’s crib mattress, so there is no chance of slipping. I also love the extra quilted padding on top.
The mattress cover is dust proof, therefore protecting my daughter from dust and other allergens.
My daughter is in the potty training stage, and with the 100% polyurethane outer layer, cleaning potty accidents have never been easier. I simply remove the mattress pad from the mattress and toss in the washer. The fabric is extremely durable to withstand frequent washings. It can also be dried in the dryer!
At only $29.95, this would make a great gift for any new or expectant mother.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
