Newly Launched: Hot Canada Deals ~ Bringing Canada the newest and hottest deals out There!

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

 

I am not sure about you, but I truly know that the ‘aver­age Joe’ cares about where their hard earned money is going when mak­ing pur­chases for basi­cally the nec­ces­si­ties of every­day liv­ing. We all require food to sur­vive, per­sonal care items, cloth­ing, house­hold clean­ers and fur­ni­ture, items for repairs or reno’s, newer vehi­cles, gas to get from point A to point B, and the list goes on and on.

For many of us, money does not come easy, and unfor­tu­nately there is no such thing as a money tree. Mak­ing the aver­age Cana­dian dol­lar stretch is hard enough to begin with, let alone hav­ing to spend on all of these emer­gen­cies that may strike you unex­pect­edly, so we all require a lit­tle bit of money to fall back on should any mishap occur.

Every­one I know cer­tainly likes to get a bang for their buck with the immense sky­rock­et­ing of prices nowa­days, whether it is food, house­hold goods, gas, you name it. We all need to find the best deals pos­si­ble while shop­ping. Thanks to the newly launched web­site called Hot Canada Deals, there is no need to look any fur­ther for the best cana­dian deals going today!

 

 

I love sav­ing money by search­ing for all of the newest siz­zling hot deals out there, and bring­ing home 5 bags of items instead of 2 gives me a huge rush!

Just know­ing that I saved $100+ dol­lars alone on a sin­gle shop­ping spree puts me on a retail high, and there is just no feel­ing like it! :)

 

 

Unlike Old Mother Hub­bard, most fam­i­lies are more con­cerned about an empty wal­let than a bare cup­board. When money is tight, we quickly look for ways to cut back on spend­ing. It’s easy to for­feit a night at the movies or a new hand­bag, but spend­ing less on food isn’t so sim­ple. This is why so many of us search high and low for the most excel­lent deals out there today.

Turn to Hot Canada Deals for all of the best Cana­dian deals. You won’t be sorry!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Two Leaves Tea Company Review & Giveaway!!

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

 

 

Being huge tea drinkers at my house as well as at my par­ents, I just knew that I had to try all of the huge assort­ment of teas that Two Leaves Tea Com­pany car­ries! After com­ing across their web­site, my eyes lit­er­ally popped when I saw many dif­fer­ent mouth­wa­ter­ing fla­vors that I have never tried before!!

I was sent a some of their famous Pais­ley teas, and as expected, they tasted just as good as described! We all had a field-day exper­i­ment­ing all of the scrump­tious fla­vors in that box! These are the most deli­cious teas that I have tried yet!!

 

 

At Two Leaves Tea Com­pany, you will find the best organic tea ever! They offer so many vari­eties of yummy teas that you can try for your­self, or even offer as gifts for your fam­ily and friends! Almost every­one that I know is a tea-lover, and now I have the per­fect gift in mind for that per­son on my hard to buy for list!!

Choose from:

 

jas­mine petal green

assam break­fast

earl grey

tamayokucha

chamomile

pep­per­mint

gen mai cha

three tea sampler

bet­ter morn­ing blend

bet­ter belly blend

bet­ter rest blend

moun­tain high chai

orange sen­cha

 

And so many more!!

 

 

 

“Founded in 2005, two leaves tea com­pany™ began with a jour­ney. Founder Richard Rosen­feld trav­elled the world on busi­ness, where meet­ings are syn­ony­mous with amaz­ingly fla­vor­ful cups of tea. After return­ing to the states, Richard looked every­where for a good cuppa’ tea…but had a hard time find­ing one.

Richard trav­elled to gar­dens in China, Sri Lanka and Japan to estab­lish rela­tion­ships with tea grow­ers in order to bring pre­mium, whole-leaf tea from the best har­vests to tea drinkers around the world. Two leaves tea com­pany™ has been rec­og­nized for the pas­sion, care and effort that goes into cup­ping our tea, with awards such as the Best New Tea award for 2005–2006 from the Spe­cialty Cof­fee Asso­ci­a­tion of the United States, and the People’s Choice Award at the Great Cana­dian Tea Steep Off in 2006.”

 

“Our expe­ri­ences at the gar­dens have taught us one incred­i­bly impor­tant thing — how to rec­og­nize and appre­ci­ate great organic whole leaf tea. Our com­mit­ment to “go there” means we’re pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with tea that tastes as if it has been plucked and steeped direct from the gardens.

Two leaves tea com­pany™ was one of the pio­neers of the pyra­mid shaped tea sachet that allows tea drinkers to expe­ri­ence whole leaf tea in the com­fort of their own home. The sachet gives the whole tea leaves the abil­ity to expand, yield­ing a rich, fla­vor­ful cuppa’ that can’t be paralleled.”

 

 

You just can­not go wrong when shop­ping at the Two Leaves Tea Com­pany. Their prices are very rea­son­able, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are phe­nom­e­nal, and their deliv­ery time was also beyond out­stand­ing! I strongly rec­om­mend this scrump­tious tea to every­one!! At this time, two leaves’ pri­mary dis­tri­b­u­tion in Canada is in food­ser­vice (cafes and restau­rants). Some of these cafes/coffee houses may also sell whole boxes of their tea. How­ever, all of their prod­ucts are sold on the web­site twoleavestea.com.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Life without Plastic Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

 

Back in 2009 I dis­cov­ered a phe­nom­e­nal com­pany called Life with­out Plas­tic when I had the oppor­tu­nity of doing a review and give­away with them. They sent me a Stain­less Steel Air­tight Water­tight Food Stor­age Con­tainer as well as a Stain­less Steel Hot Meal Con­tainer to test out, and these 2 prod­ucts are still used at my house to this day! These prod­ucts rock, period!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We know too much plas­tic ruins the earth. And plas­tics con­tain­ing BPA ruin our health. BPA is short for bisphe­nol A, and stud­ies have shown that it can cause can­cer and other med­ical ill­nesses in ani­mals. Well, some com­pa­nies are pio­neer­ing the move to BPA-free prod­ucts, to keep us humans safe.

We’ve seen ref­er­ence to the dan­gers plas­tic poses to marine life and wildlife, garbage that we humans directly and indi­rectly deposit in the oceans or on the earth, but how clearly have we received the mes­sage? Not clearly enough it seems!

Once ani­mals, marine life or wildlife ingest plas­tic, thou­sands of spines lin­ing the throat and esoph­a­gus make it nearly impos­si­ble to regur­gi­tate. The plas­tic can lead to par­tial or even com­plete obstruc­tion of the gas­troin­testi­nal tract, result­ing in decreased diges­tive effi­ciency, ener­getic and repro­duc­tive costs and, for some, starvation.

Plas­tics inges­tion doesn’t always cause death, but there are clearly health risks! The frus­trat­ing, yet hope­ful aspect is that humans can eas­ily begin address­ing the solu­tion, with­out major lifestyle changes. It’s as sim­ple as reduc­ing pack­ag­ing and mov­ing towards alter­na­tive, biodegrad­able mate­ri­als and recycling.

And this is why I am cer­tainly grate­ful for “Life With­out Plas­tic”!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

About this won­der­ful com­pany, a blurb from their web­site:

 

Who We Are: Activists for a Plas­tic Free Planet

“We launched Life With­out Plas­tic (“LWP”) in 2006 after sev­eral years of day­dream­ing about how to make a con­tri­bu­tion to reduc­ing the large quan­ti­ties of plas­tic that are con­sumed every sec­ond of every day around the world.  We played with ideas for rais­ing aware­ness about the issue. We wanted to address the envi­ron­men­tal dis­as­ter that the con­sump­tion of plas­tic is caus­ing, and the dam­age that leach­ing plas­tic can cause to human and ani­mal health.  We quickly real­ized that before we could effec­tively help peo­ple reduce their plas­tic con­sump­tion, we had to be able to point them toward non-plastic alter­na­tives that could replace the plas­tic items cur­rently used in day-to-day life.  When Life With­out Plas­tic was cre­ated, very few alter­na­tives existed in the North Amer­i­can mar­ket, espe­cially for food and drink con­tain­ers.  Our son was born in 2003, and he was the cat­a­lyst. He made us look more actively for alter­na­tives in North Amer­ica and in other coun­tries around the world.  This is how Sanc­tus Mundo, our unique prod­uct brand, came into existence.

Fast for­ward three years to 2009 and here we are.  There are now many more alter­na­tives to plas­tic prod­ucts avail­able thanks, for exam­ple, to the tremen­dous media atten­tion on bisphe­nol A over the past two years.  Yet one thing we are notic­ing is that the qual­ity of these alter­na­tives varies sig­nif­i­cantly.  There are some won­der­ful new prod­ucts cre­ated with a real con­cern for qual­ity, health, the envi­ron­ment, and work­ers con­di­tions. But there are other prod­ucts out there that are unsafe.  For exam­ple, not all stain­less steel is cre­ated equal, and as with many things, price is often an indi­ca­tor of quality.

As we con­tinue to ful­fill our goal of mak­ing avail­able more and more high qual­ity alter­na­tives to plas­tic prod­ucts, we are now able to begin focus­ing increased atten­tion on an equally impor­tant ele­ment of our mis­sion:  rais­ing aware­ness about plas­tics issues by pro­vid­ing solid sci­ence– and experience-based infor­ma­tion and show­ing peo­ple, one per­son at a time, the beauty and sim­plic­ity of a life with­out plastic.”

 

 

 

 

 

This great com­pany car­ries all sorts of alter­na­tives to plas­tic, mak­ing the envi­ron­ment such a bet­ter place.

They sell all kind of sweet prod­ucts, including:

 

Bags

Child and Baby Products

Food Stor­age

Non-Plastic Toys

Table­ware

Water Stor­age

 

 

 

 

 

This time around they sent me some fan­tas­tic Freezy­cup™ Ice Pop Molds to try out and as per usual, Life with­out Plas­tic did not disappoint!!

Sum­mer at the Diotte house­hold means refresh­ing pop­si­cle time. We eat pop­si­cles all through­out the day and the evening. We devour them when we’re blaz­ing from the hot sum­mer sun, like we have been for most of this sum­mer. We chow on pop­si­cles at any old time because they are refresh­ing, fun, and when they’re not loaded with sugar and arti­fi­cial food colour­ing like the ones you might buy in the store, they’re very healthy and also an eco-friendly sooth­ing snack for peo­ple both young and old!

These Freezy­cup™ Ice Pop Molds are made of stain­less steel and come with three reusable bam­boo sticks and two sil­i­cone gas­kets each.

Pop­si­cles are one of the eas­i­est make-it-yourself treats both because they’re quick (not count­ing freez­ing time), and because they use up fruit that might be too ripe to eat but very easy to puree. All you need to make pop­si­cles is:

 

* Life with­out Plas­tic Freezy­cup™ Ice Pop Molds

* a mix­ture of what­ever tin­kles your fancy, (what­ever you would like to eat in your popsicle)

* a blender of some sort to puree the ingre­di­ents so you can pour them into your Freezy­cup™ Ice Pop Molds; and

* a fun­nel so you can eas­ily pour the puree into these awe­some Ice Pop Molds.

 

 

 

 

 

These are the best Freezy­cup™ Ice Pop Molds by far that we have ever tried! No more shop­ping for super­mar­ket pop­si­cles now thanks to these molds from Life with­out Plas­tic! They rock!!!!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Yves Rocher Canada ~ D-14 Shape Refiner & Slimming massage accessory Review & Giveaway!!

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

yvesrocher.coolcanucks.ca

 

 

 

 

 

Being a HUGE fan of Yves Rocher prod­ucts, I was beyond ecsta­tic when they agreed to team up with Cool­Canucks to do a sec­ond review and giveaway!!

Yves Rocher is the world leader in botan­i­cal beauty prod­ucts! Yves Rocher  is the online des­ti­na­tion for beauty cos­met­ics includ­ing skin and body care, fra­grance, makeup, and bath.

 

 

Yves Rocher, a world leader in botan­i­cal beauty care, was founded over 40 years ago in France. Since its incep­tion, the com­pany has grown to more than 1,800 beauty cen­tres world­wide, and dis­trib­utes its cat­a­logue on five con­ti­nents, in 90 coun­tries and over 20 languages!!

Yves Rocher has a Foun­da­tion called the Yves Rocher Foun­da­tion. Here is a bit of info: The Yves Rocher Foun­da­tion – Insti­tut de France was an ini­tia­tive of Jacques Rocher, son of Yves Rocher. The Foun­da­tion sup­ports local and global ini­tia­tives that help pre­serve nature and edu­cate peo­ple about the envi­ron­ment all around the world. Cre­ated in 1991 and placed under the aus­pices of the Insti­tut de France in 2001, the Yves Rocher Foun­da­tion is work­ing towards cre­at­ing a “greener world” through 2 key ini­tia­tives: the Women of the Earth Awards and the Plant for the Planet Programme.

For fur­ther infor­ma­tion on the Foun­da­tion, check out www.yves-rocher-fondation.org.

Yves Rocher sent me their FABULOUS D-14 Shape Refiner & Slim­ming mas­sage acces­sory to Review, and it is phe­nom­e­nal!

Slim­ming Care

“Yves Rocher has found the nec­es­sary ingre­di­ents for its slim­ming care prod­ucts in its botan­i­cals. After 4 years of inten­sive research, Yves Rocher Botan­i­cal Lab­o­ra­to­ries dis­cov­ered a vari­ety of Green Cof­fee Bean, Cof­fea Canephora Robusta, with 3 times more slim­ming effec­tive­ness than the tra­di­tional caf­feine based slim­ming prod­ucts. Test the effec­tive­ness of these tar­geted treat­ments for a vis­i­bly slim­mer look day-by-day.”

 

For who? For all women who are look­ing for vis­i­ble results in just 14 days, Yves Rocher’s Botan­i­cal Beauty research offers a dou­ble slim­ming and firm­ing action. :

• Cen­tella Asi­at­ica extract to tone up skin
In only 14 days, skin is firmer, your fig­ure is rede­fined and looks slim­mer. On the start­ing blocks to sculpt your silhouette.

 

I was ecsta­tic to be able to review this prod­uct after hear­ing so much about it! I sim­ply applied it to my thighs and butt every day and night for 2 weeks and I saw a notice­able dif­fer­ence in the way my skin looked in those areas! My skin def­i­nitely looked firmer and rede­fined! I was impressed to say the least!!

Also included was the Yves Rocher Slim­ming mas­sage acces­sory which boosts your slim­ming massage!

CoolCanucks ~ PACKAWAYS Reusable Dorm Boxes Back to School Review!!

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

 

Most of us nowa­days are doing our part help­ing to make this a greener world. We reduce, reuse, and recy­cle.

As most of you know, I am all about green com­pa­nies and eco-friendly prod­ucts, and Tech­nol­ogy Con­tainer Corp., (own­ers of the awe­some PACKAWAYS Dorm Boxes) is cer­tainly no excep­tion.

They are per­fect for your teenager who is going away to school as the PACKAWAYS Reusable Dorm Boxes are so easy to open, and then even eas­ier to sim­ply fold flat and store under a bed or in a closet!

I received some of these fan­tas­tic pack­aways reusable boxes to review and they are def­i­nitely the best reusable boxes that I have ever tried in my life! Although I don’t have a teenager who’s going away to col­lege, I do know that these are absolutely per­fect for under the bed stor­age for my shoes and other misc. items!! They rock!

Made from durable polypropy­lene, these boxes are built to last a very long time! You could find so many great uses for these babies, you can basi­cally use these for any­thing you need to store around your house!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Steward Bags 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags Review & Giveaway!!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

 

 

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.

 

The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

 

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.

Thank Heav­ens for Stew­ard Bags 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton Reusable Bags!!

 

 

 

I was sent some Stew­ard Bags 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton Reusable Bags to review, and they are phe­nom­e­nal! The ben­e­fits of using these 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton Reusable Bags are fan­tas­tic! They are a re-usable alter­na­tive to plas­tic, each one has the poten­tial to elim­i­nate hun­dreds of plas­tic bags!!

 

 

 

Their Mis­sion Statement:

 

“To pro­vide gro­cery shop­pers  with a high qual­ity, eco-friendly alter­na­tive to plas­tic pro­duce bags as  well as encour­age and chal­lenge oth­ers to become active par­tic­i­pants in  stew­ard­ship ini­tia­tives for our planet.”

 

Com­pany History:

“Stew­ard Bags was born out of our family’s love for the out­doors and our pas­sion for stew­ard­ship of the Earth.  We are com­mit­ted to learn­ing new ways to reduce our eco­log­i­cal foot print.  We waited for oth­ers to cre­ate an eco-friendly alter­na­tive to the plas­tic pro­duce bags and grew impa­tient.  In the mean­time we debated.  One of us insisted on tying a knot in the top of the bag so the pro­duce didn’t roll out. The other, how­ever, argued that knot­ting the top of the bag makes it dif­fi­cult to re-open and impos­si­ble to reuse.  Either way these bags ended up pil­ing up in our garbage and uti­mately in the local land­fill. Not only have we devel­oped this organic pro­duce bag as an Earth friendly alter­na­tive to plas­tic pro­duce bags, now we have one less thing to argue about. We feel that the devel­op­ment of our prod­uct is a nat­ural pro­gres­sion from reusable gro­cery bags.”

 

 

I give Stew­ard Bags 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton Reusable Bags a huge thumbs up, and absolutely rec­om­mend that every­one pur­chase these phe­nom­e­nal reusable pro­duce bags!

Grab A Scabs are per­ma­nent stick-on fab­ric patches made by Scabbee. Scabs don’t require iron­ing or sewing.  Scabs can be cut to any shape and will not fray.  Best of all, Scabs are machine wash­able so they can be used to mend and acces­sorize all your clothes! They are avail­able in dif­fer­ent shapes, sizes and themes and can be used on clothes and back­packs, as well as water bot­tles, note­books and more. These fun Stick-on Fab­ric Patches are tak­ing the world by storm!!

 

 

 

 

Each Grab a Scab is also machine-washable, so you won’t be re-applying a new Scab every other week! They are extremely easy to apply, and no sewing required! Sim­ply peel and stick!!

My lit­tle Nate had a blast with his grab a scabs after I gave him the awe­some one’s that I was sent to review! He was cer­tainly the envy of the neigh­bor­hood, and his friends wanted some so he shared!!

 

Scabbee & Friends

“Scabs are made by Scabbee, a friendly mon­ster with lots of char­ac­ter. Scabbee hides his pic­ture on every Scab, so watch out for him!   Scabbee has three great mon­ster bud­dies; Goop, Brain Freeze and Cot­ton Ball who help him come up with the great­est and cra­zi­est new Scabs. Which mini-monster are you most like?”

 

 

 

 

Grab a Scab Per­ma­nent Stick-on Fab­ric Patches are so much fun and cer­tainly make great con­ver­sa­tion pieces! Some of the neigh­bor­hood moth­ers inquired as to where to buy them! And bet­ter yet? They are a 100% Cana­dian Company!!

 

 

 

 

Scabs are super sticky fab­ric sticker patches. “Once they are on your things, they won’t come off — not in the wash, not at play — SCABS STAY PUT!” Made of durable fab­ric these easy to apply patches make a won­der­ful fash­ion state­ment, while extend­ing the life of your clothes or adding flair to items like bike hel­mets and water bottles!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Aurora World Raggedy Ann Doll Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

 

 

Aurora World is best known for it’s exten­sive quan­ti­ties of much loved children’s plush toys for boys and girls. Aurora World is the lead­ing sup­plier of afford­able, high qual­ity plush toys and gifts.

Plush toys are well loved by kids of almost all ages. Babies have their favorite plush toys and so do teenagers!

I know that I cer­tainly had my favorite grow­ing up, and I am sure that you also remem­ber your favorite! After find­ing Aurora World while surf­ing the net one day, I desired to know more about them!

Aurora World recently intro­ducted add a lineup of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy and I love the fact that my lit­tle niece Riley was excited and clung to the Raggedy Ann doll that Aurora World sent me to review!

Aurora World, Inc. has been named the newest plush license for Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

“RAGGEDY ANN  & RAGGEDY ANDY CLASSIC Hand­made by Aurora — The beloved rag­dolls are back!  Aurora’s soft and hug­gable dolls are heir­loom trea­sures to be passed along for gen­er­a­tions.  Raggedy  Ann & Raggedy Andy were cre­ated by Johnny Gru­elle in 1918 for his daugh­ter, Mar­cella. Aurora has cap­tured the spirit of the heart­warm­ing orig­i­nals with ten sweetly nos­tal­gic styles in four sizes — 8″, 12″, 16″ & 25″. Beau­ti­fully made, with fine facial fea­tures in soft brown tones and yarn hair. Has the tra­di­tional embroi­dered “I Love You” heart on his chest. Larger dolls fea­tures plas­tic but­ton eyes, smaller sizes have embroi­dered eyes. Raggedy Ann is dressed in pro­pri­etary vintage-inspired fab­rics, and both Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy fea­ture their own unique styling. Each col­lec­table comes with a 4 sided hang tag that high­light Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy’s ori­gin and legacy.”

 

 

 

 

 

I used to have both Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls when I was a young girl, and I took them every­where with me! I slept with them, played house with them, hugged them, and even sat them at the din­ner table with us! :)

I am so happy that Aurora World brought back my mag­i­cal mem­o­ries after being able to review her at my age now!!

Again, Aurora World did not disappoint!
