Planning for the future with Planswell

Talking about money can be a little stressful right?  Trust me, I know and I know it’s a personal topic too.  But have you heard about The Canadian Child Affordability Calculator?  A few weeks ago, there was a study by the Royal Bank of Canada regarding the majority of Canadian parents that are still supporting their 30+ year old adult children.

Oasis Hydrafruit: a new beverage to try #oasiscanada #hydrafruit

I think I’ve found a juice for our home to have on hand! Yes, I am that mom that doesn’t really give store-bought juice boxes.  I do more so if friends are coming over and a special treat.  Also, I  normally use my juicer and for those days I don’t feel like it, I tell the kids to go…

Weird but True from National Geographic celebrates its 10th Anniversary!

National Geographic Kids is my son’s favourite.  Once he learned how to read and whenever we hit a bookstore he always leaves with one of their books.  I enjoy them too and it’s something my son and I will do together.  Just the two of us.  Last night he asked if we could read together and I think my heart grew 100…

Green Zebra Kitchen ~ Don’t stress this Holiday season with out of town guests

It’s as simple as that.  Do you have family that are vegan or vegetarian?  Are you wondering what the heck are you going to make? What special ingredients do you need to invest in for that one time they are coming over?  Well, I had a similar situation arise when my sister and her husband visited from Arizona.  Now, it’s not…
