CoolCanucks Review of Pink Blush Maternity!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

 

 

One of the biggest joys in a woman’s life is find­ing out that she is preg­nant. This is truly a bless­ing from God, and a joy­ful expe­ri­ence. One of the hard­est things to do when you are preg­nant is find­ing styl­ish mater­nity clothes that fit as that lit­tle mir­a­cle is grow­ing inside you. You cer­tainly don’t want to give up your fash­ion­able cloth­ing dur­ing those nine months, and thanks to Pink Blush Mater­nity, you don’t have to!!

 

Pink Blush Mater­nity car­ries styl­ish, high qual­ity mater­nity clothes with really inex­pen­sive price tags! As so many of you already know, Mater­nity clothes can be expen­sive, espe­cially when you con­sider that you’ll wear them for only a few short months. Pink Blush Mater­nity sells designer mater­nity clothes at a frac­tion of the cost that you would find at just about any mater­nity store out there!

 

 

 

 

Find­ing both styl­ish and com­fort­able attire can almost be impos­si­ble. Pink Blush Mater­nity boasts an exten­sive array of trendy mater­nity clothes from pants & shorts to the best mater­nity tops, dresses and jeans that are funky and fun, but that are most impor­tantly extremely afford­able. Their entire line of mater­nity cloth­ing is amaz­ing, and I was sent a gor­geous top for my niece who is cur­rently pregnant.

 

This mater­nity top is lit­er­ally oh so chic and styl­ish! She chose to review the Teal Over­lay Mater­nity Tank Top and it hon­estly blew us away! It looked so pretty on their web­site, but to see it up close and in per­son is def­i­nitely a must as the pic­tures hon­estly do not do these phe­nom­e­nal clothes jus­tice!! Here is where you will lit­er­ally find cheap mater­nity clothes with­out break­ing the bank!

 

 

 

 

 

Shop at Pink Blush Mater­nity where you will find the best mater­nity cloth­ing and dis­cover dis­tinct styles that are both fash­ion­able and comfortable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cer­tainly rec­om­mend that you shop at Pink Blush Mater­nity from the com­fort of your own home. Every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on their web­site to make shop­ping online with them a com­plete snap!!

CCFC and AbbVie Awarding Scholarships to Empower Students Living with IBD

Friday, May 31st, 2013

 

 

Crohn’s and Col­i­tis Foun­da­tion of Canada and Abb­Vie Cor­po­ra­tion Award­ing Schol­ar­ships to Empower Seven Incred­i­ble Youth with IBD

 

Nom­i­na­tions now being accepted for Sec­ond Annual Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram that rewards remark­able stu­dents liv­ing with Crohn’s dis­ease and ulcer­a­tive colitis.

Canada has one of the high­est reported preva­lence of inflam­ma­tory bowel dis­ease (IBD) in the world and 20–30% of peo­ple with IBD are diag­nosed before the age of 20*. To sup­port Cana­dian stu­dents liv­ing with IBD and raise aware­ness about this chronic dis­ease, the Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram  is accept­ing nom­i­na­tions from young peo­ple liv­ing with IBD.

In part­ner­ship with the Crohn’s and Col­i­tis Foun­da­tion of Canada (CCFC), the Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram is designed to award stu­dents who are liv­ing well with IBD, and strive to sus­tain an opti­mal level of well­ness allow­ing them to excel while inspir­ing oth­ers to do the same. Through an unre­stricted edu­ca­tional grant by Abb­Vie, CCFC will extend seven (7) one-time schol­ar­ships of up to $5,000 CAN to stu­dents liv­ing with IBD who are enter­ing into or are cur­rently attend­ing a post-secondary edu­ca­tional insti­tu­tion. Stu­dents of all ages are wel­come to apply and the schol­ar­ship can be used for any Cana­dian post-secondary insti­tu­tion.  “I am com­mit­ted to liv­ing each day to the fullest and I’m so grate­ful to the CCFC and Abb­Vie for giv­ing me the oppor­tu­nity and inspi­ra­tion to push harder and help me excel at my aca­d­e­mic goals,” says Clin­ton Shard, one of seven (7) 2012 “gutsy” schol­ar­ship win­ners. “While the mon­e­tary schol­ar­ship pro­vides an incen­tive, it also rep­re­sents an invest­ment in assist­ing stu­dents liv­ing with IBD and help­ing us achieve our dreams.”

Through ini­tia­tives such as the schol­ar­ship pro­gram, Abb­Vie aims to con­tinue accel­er­at­ing the recog­ni­tion of the bur­den of IBD and help fur­ther the global dis­sem­i­na­tion of evolv­ing approaches to bet­ter care for peo­ple liv­ing with IBD.

“Abb­Vie is proud to part­ner again this year with CCFC for the Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram. This ini­tia­tive is a great exam­ple of a part­ner­ship that makes a dif­fer­ence in people’s lives,” states Felipe Pas­trana, Gen­eral Man­ager of Abb­Vie Canada. “While our name, Abb­Vie, has changed – our com­mit­ment to the IBD com­mu­nity endures. Over the years, Abb­Vie has shown con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to peo­ple liv­ing with IBD by help­ing orga­ni­za­tions and health care providers alike bet­ter under­stand the impact of these dis­eases on people’s lives. Abb­Vie rec­og­nizes the need for bet­ter dis­ease diag­no­sis and mon­i­tor­ing to help improve the lives of mil­lions of peo­ple affected by this chronic and debil­i­tat­ing dis­ease.” IBD Inci­dence Rates on the Rise Inflam­ma­tory bowel dis­ease, or IBD, is a group of dis­or­ders that causes the intestines to become inflamed and ulcer­ated. This is caused by an abnor­mal response of the body’s immune system.

A recent sur­vey con­ducted by the CCFC found that 69 per­cent of peo­ple who had IBD when they were young were delayed in com­plet­ing their post-secondary edu­ca­tion. 89 per­cent who had IBD as a child felt that they could have achieved more at school with­out their dis­ease. Since there is cur­rently no known cure or cause, young peo­ple need strate­gies to achieve their best long-term health despite their diagnosis.

Unfor­tu­nately, a major­ity of peo­ple liv­ing with IBD endure many chal­lenges when it comes to their edu­ca­tion. With inten­sive med­ical treat­ments, debil­i­tat­ing symp­toms and lengthy hos­pi­tal stays, keep­ing up with school can become extremely difficult.

“Due to the iso­lat­ing nature of the dis­ease, peo­ple liv­ing with IBD too often miss out on the great life expe­ri­ences many of us take for granted, includ­ing com­plet­ing their edu­ca­tion,” says Dr. Kevin Glas­gow, CCFC’s Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer. “The Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship was born of the desire to sup­port stu­dents with Crohn’s and col­i­tis and help empower them to con­tinue their edu­ca­tion and excel to their fullest poten­tial. Our chal­lenge is to find more youth like Clin­ton who are speak­ing out to help reduce the stigma asso­ci­ated with diges­tive dis­ease. By telling their sto­ries through the Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram, we know we can inspire many oth­ers to do the same at a time when advanc­ing pub­lic under­stand­ing of IBD is needed most.”

The Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram – The A, B, C’s The Abb­Vie IBD Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram, in part­ner­ship with CCFC, is designed for appli­cants of any age enter­ing into or attend­ing a Canadian-based post-secondary insti­tu­tion. Appli­cants must be:

· A legal and per­ma­nent res­i­dent of Canada;

· Diag­nosed with inflam­ma­tory bowel dis­ease by a physician;

· Seek­ing an associate’s, under­grad­u­ate, or grad­u­ate degree from a Cana­dian uni­ver­sity; col­lege; or enrolled in a trade school edu­ca­tional program;

· Enrolled in or await­ing accep­tance from a Canadian-based post-educational insti­tu­tion for the Fall semes­ter of 2013; and

· A stu­dent who demon­strates aca­d­e­mic aspi­ra­tion and strives to sus­tain an opti­mal level of well­ness in spite of their IBD, allow­ing them to excel to reach their per­sonal and aca­d­e­mic goals and inspir­ing oth­ers to do the same. Visit www.ccfc.ca<http://www.ccfc.ca> for full appli­ca­tion details.

CoolCanucks Review of Brother Canada’s Smart Business Machines ~ All-in-One Multi-Function Center

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

 

 

After recently con­nect­ing with Brother Canada, I was aston­ished to see such an exten­sive lineup of awe­some prod­ucts that they actu­ally sell!

When I thought of Brother Canada, I actu­ally thought of sewing machines right off the hop, and was not obliv­i­ous to the fact that they sell phe­nom­e­nal sewing machines as well as awe­some office machines!

One thing that I did not know was that Brother Canada also car­ries a phe­nom­e­nal lineup of type­writ­ers, fax machines, labellers, scan­ners, and even the best Busi­ness Smart print­ers!!

 

 

 

 

 

Brother Canada and designer Saman­tha Pynn are on a mis­sion to help Cana­di­ans fall in love with their home offices again and cre­ate spaces that are both styl­ish and func­tional.  Home offices are often neglected spaces – filled with clut­ter, mis­matched fur­ni­ture and bad light­ing – but it doesn’t have to be that way!  Using some sim­ple design tech­niques and Brother’s office equip­ment solu­tions, like the small and sleek Busi­ness Smart inkjet all-in-ones, the home office can be trans­formed into a wel­com­ing space that is also a pro­duc­tive place to work.

“Peo­ple who work from home get the lux­ury of being able to design, style and cre­ate their work­space based on their own per­sonal style,” said Saman­tha Pynn, expert inte­rior dec­o­ra­tor, styl­ist, and host on HGTV Canada. “As we all look to max­i­mize every hour of every day, it’s time to rein­vig­o­rate our home offices to cre­ate not only styl­ish spaces but more pro­duc­tive, func­tional and effi­cient ones.”

Cana­di­ans want to spruce up their home offices. Accord­ing to a new Vision Crit­i­cal national sur­vey* com­mis­sioned by Brother Canada, 82 per cent of men and women sur­veyed who work from home say they do invest time, effort and resources into mak­ing their home office look styl­ish and appeal­ing – but 20 per cent are still strug­gling to cre­ate a space that reflects their own style and per­son­al­ity and eight per cent work out of any place at home that is avail­able and con­ve­nient at the time.

Accord­ing to Pynn, there are a few sim­ple tech­niques we can use to freshen up our home offices, which is impor­tant as 40 per cent of peo­ple sur­veyed say they plan on meet­ing with clients and col­leagues at their home office: • Incor­po­rate fur­ni­ture pieces that seam­lessly fit with your exist­ing décor – don’t be lim­ited by tra­di­tional office furniture

• Use brightly coloured area rugs to cre­ate a defined space that’s all your own

• Brighten up your work­space with table lamps and non-fluorescent over-head lighting

• Use dec­o­ra­tive trays to store office essen­tials and equip­ment like sta­plers, tape dis­pensers, pens and paper to cre­ate ele­gant and func­tional groupings

 

 

With one third (34 per cent) of employed Cana­di­ans work­ing from home at least once a month, the sur­vey also dis­cov­ered these work­ers’ unique tech­nol­ogy needs:

  • 82 per cent of respon­dents ranked print­ers as a very impor­tant piece of home office equip­ment – fol­low­ing only lap­tops (86 per cent) and well ahead of items like smart­phones (40 per cent) and tablets (12 per cent)
  • 93 per cent of those polled agree that hav­ing the right office equip­ment and tech­nol­ogy is required to be productive

 

“The sur­vey tells us that peo­ple who work from home have really dif­fer­ent needs in terms of tech­nol­ogy,” adds Pynn.  “One of the great­est ways to cre­ate both styl­ish and pro­duc­tive home offices is with the new Busi­ness Smart inkjet all-in-one print­ers by Brother Canada.  With these all-in-ones you won’t have to give up pre­cious work­space or style as they fea­ture a sleek design that is per­fect for smaller, mod­ern work­spaces and the home office.”

 

The Busi­ness Smart Series is now avail­able at Sta­ples ($199.99 for the MFC-J4510DW and $249.99 for the MFC-J4710DW), Future Shop ($189.99 for the MFC-J4410DW) and Best Buy ($189.99 for the MFC-J4410DW). The MFC-J4610DW model will also be avail­able at other online retailers.

 

 

 

I was sent an awe­some All-in-One Multi-Function Cen­ter from Brother Canada’s Smart Busi­ness Machines Series and it rocks!!

Brother took a huge step for­ward with the MFC-J4510DW all-in-one inkjet printer. Where pre­vi­ous mod­els deliv­ered basic fea­tures and plain hard­ware designs that felt far behind the com­pe­ti­tion, this brand spank­ing new office friendly setup deserves its “future-proof” descrip­tor with Web-connected fea­tures like cloud print­ing com­pat­i­bil­ity by way of Apple Air­Print, a 3.7-inch capac­i­tive touch-screen dis­play, and Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity. While its 150-sheet paper input capac­ity lim­its its usabil­ity for large teams, its fresh and styl­ish design and very gen­er­ous 2 year war­ranty earns this phe­nom­e­nal printer extremely high marks and a solid rec­om­men­da­tion for per­sonal offices and small work­groups all over the world!

Hubby and I test this baby out today and we did every­thing imag­in­able! We printed, scanned, faxed, copied, you name it, we tried it out! I love the look of it, it makes my small home office look so pro­fes­sional and sharp! The Brother Canada’s Smart Busi­ness Machines All-in-One Multi-Function Cen­ter is the absolute best all-in-one printer that I have EVER owned, no word of a lie.

The MFC-J4510DW BUSINESS WIRELESS COLOUR INKJET 5-IN-1 printer gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I rec­om­mend that every­one own one! You won’t be sorry!!

CoolCanucks Blog ~ UV Skinz Review!!

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

 

 

 

UV Skinz is an extremely impor­tant and rep­utable com­pany that I will NEVER for­get. Rhonda (the owner) cre­ated the prod­ucts and this excel­lent com­pany, sun­block cloth­ing that blocks out harm­ful UV rays, after los­ing her 32-year old hus­band Dar­ren to skin can­cer. Rhonda made it her defi­nate life’s mis­sion to raise aware­ness in any way that she pos­si­bly could. UV Skinz is entirely devoted to pro­vid­ing pro­tec­tive swimshirts and pants for every­one, from babies all the way to grown men!

 

 

 

 

If you have chil­dren, extra sen­si­tive skin, or spend a lot of time in the sun, I would highly rec­om­mend check­ing out UV Skinz!

 

Armed with the extreme pas­sion of pro­tect­ing their 3 young sons from skin can­cer, Rhonda sought out cloth­ing that would pro­vide total UV pro­tec­tion. This led her to start UV Skinz.

 

Their fam­ily story is tragic, but it has lead to pre­ven­tion of skin can­cer for many people.

 

UV Skinz has an exten­sive troop of sup­port­ers, includ­ing Mar­cia Cross, Tori Spelling, and Matthew McConaughey (and being fea­tured in Peo­ple Mag­a­zine, the New York Times, and Chicago Tri­bune, and many more!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

UV Skinz comes in an exten­sive array of colours, sizes, and designs. You just can’t go wrong with these won­der­ful cloth­ing items! It all begins with pre­ven­tion, pre­ven­tion is the key!

 

UV Skinz are com­fort­able, fashion-forward swimwear, tees, shorts and hats that are avail­able in a wide vari­ety of sizes, infants through adults. Most  impor­tantly, UV Skinz offers chemical-free sun pro­tec­tion, car­ry­ing a UPF rat­ing of 50+, which blocks out over 98% of the sun’s harm­ful rays.  UV Skinz are also a fab­u­lous alter­na­tive for kids and babies with skin aller­gies and sen­si­tiv­i­ties to chem­i­cals that many sun­screens contain.

 

 

 

 

I was sent an awe­some hot pink beach cover-up for review and I absolutely love it! As usual, UV Skinz exceeded my expec­ta­tions and cer­tainly did not dis­ap­point! I give a huge kudos to this com­pany, and absolutely rec­om­mend UV Skinz to every­one!! I had the plea­sure of being able to review a chil­drens short sleeve UV Skinz swim shirt, match­ing board shorts and a reversible bucket hat in size 3T! It is so adorable beyond belief! It’s colours are orange and navy stripes, and very sharp look­ing!! I def­i­nitely rec­om­mend that every­one dress their fam­ily in UV Skinz. The cus­tomer ser­vice I received and the deliv­ery time were com­pletely outstanding!!

 

 

 

 

 

Buy It!! You can pur­chase all of these awe­some clothes at UV Skinz

CoolCanucks Blog ~ Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cookies Review!!

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

 

 

Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cook­ies are made with­out milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts, but you’d never know it—they’re deli­cious! Now one can enjoy gluten free cook­ies that taste so good and sat­is­fies the sweet tooth!

 

Heav­enly, gluten-free cook­ies are hard to find, but Dr. Lucy has found a way to beat that by cre­at­ing the most deli­cious, gluten-free, vegan and allergy-free cook­ies on the mar­ket today. This com­pany also sells many delec­table fla­vors that hon­estly tick­les the taste buds!

 

 

 

 

When Dr. Lucy Gib­ney learned her child had severe food aller­gies, she got down to some seri­ous med­ical research — in the kitchen. Today, Lucy’s cook­ies stand as deli­cious proof that no one should have to sac­ri­fice tasty treats because of their dietary concerns.

“Our Qual­ity Assur­ance Pro­gram pro­vides deli­cious treats for you and your fam­ily while doing every­thing we can to safe­guard you from these spe­cific aller­gens: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.”

With Dr. Lucy’s cer­ti­fi­ca­tions for gluten-free, kosher and vegan prod­ucts – you’re cer­tain to find the per­fect treat everytime!!

 

 

 

 

These cook­ies come in many tan­ti­lat­ing fla­vors: Sugar Cookie, Cin­na­mon Thin, Oat­meal Cookie, Choco­late Chip Cookie, Maple Bliss, Gin­ger Snap, Hol­i­day Sug­ars and Choco­late Mint! I also noticed a delight­ful snack on their web­site that is new to me, Gluten-free Choco­late Brownie Cakes! Oh they look so yummy!!!

 

 

 

All the cook­ies are made from a sim­i­lar cookie “base” that con­sists of the in-house flour blend (gar­banzo, potato starch, gluten-free oat, tapi­oca, sorghum and fava), evap­o­rated cane juice, soy milk, sev­eral oils (palm fruit, soy­bean, canola and olive), fil­tered water, fla­vor­ing and cit­ric acid from corn, crushed soy­beans, soy lecithin, non-dairy lac­tic acid, beta carotene, bak­ing pow­der, bak­ing soda, salt, xan­than gum, cal­cium car­bon­ate, annatto extract color, sodium car­boxymethyl­cel­lu­lose, and methylcellulose.

Dr. Lucy’s cook­ies web­site describes the cook­ies as “crispy, crunchy,” and they hit the nail directly on the head. There is not a chewy bit to be found in these cook­ies. They’re seri­ously crunchy through­out. If you like your cook­ies crunchy, you’ll love these from the first bite to the last bite (which is often one and the same bite… since the cook­ies are pretty tiny, you can pop a whole cookie in your mouth all at once) and not even feel guilty!!

 

 

 

I received a cou­ple of boxes of these amaz­ing cook­ies. The mouth­wa­ter­ing fla­vors sent to me were Cin­na­mon Thin and Gin­ger Snap. They were extremely tasty and enjoyed by the entire house­hold. No one com­plained, and even walked back for sec­onds. Melyssa is a really picky eater, and so when I am sent food or drink items to review, they must pass her taste test first. She gave Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cook­ies a very big thumbs up, and con­tin­ued to snack on them through­out the course of the evening.

CoolCanucks Blog ~ Ther­ma­cell Mos­quito Area Repel­lent Patio Lantern Review

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

 

 

 

Now that sum­mer is here, most of us spend a lot of time out­doors whether it’s in the warm sun­shine, or sit­ting under a porch or an awning while it’s raining.

Along with sum­mer comes those pesky bugs, namely mosquitoes!!

I am one of those peo­ple who get’s picked on and bit­ten the most by those damn mos­qui­toes, I am unsure of why they love me so much, but they swarm around me no mat­ter what! I have even been out at camp in the bush pick­ing blue­ber­ries and those darn things have bit­ten through my track pants and t-shirt!

I was con­vinced that there would never be a cure-all, but thanks to the Ther­ma­CELL Mos­quito Patio Lantern — the mos­qui­toes have diminished!!

 

 

 

 

Not only are mos­qui­toes both­er­some, one must also worry about the dreaded West Nile Virus!

 

West Nile virus is a dis­ease spread by mosquitoes.

 

The West Nile virus is a type of virus known as a fla­vivirus. Researchers believe West Nile virus is spread when a mos­quito bites an infected bird and then bites a person.

 

Although many peo­ple are bit­ten by mos­qui­toes that carry West Nile virus, most do not know they’ve been exposed. Few peo­ple develop severe dis­ease or even notice any symp­toms at all.

 

Risk fac­tors for devel­op­ing a more severe form of West Nile virus include:

 

•Con­di­tions that weaken the immune sys­tem, such as HIV, organ trans­plants, and recent chemotherapy

 

•Older or very young age

 

•Preg­nancy

 

West Nile virus may also be spread through blood trans­fu­sions and organ trans­plants. It is pos­si­ble for an infected mother to spread the virus to her child through breast milk.

 

Symp­toms

 

Mild dis­ease, gen­er­ally called West Nile fever, may cause some or all of the fol­low­ing symptoms:

 

•Abdom­i­nal pain

 

•Diar­rhea

 

•Fever

 

•Headache

 

•Lack of appetite

 

•Mus­cle aches

 

•Nau­sea

 

•Rash

 

•Sore throat

 

•Swollen lymph nodes

 

•Vom­it­ing

 

These symp­toms usu­ally last for 3 — 6 days.

 

More severe forms of dis­ease, which can be life threat­en­ing, may be called West Nile encephali­tis or West Nile menin­gi­tis, depend­ing on what part of the body is affected.

 

 

 

 

 

This baby would make an unbe­liev­able Father’s Day Gift for dad and makes a great repel­lent while he’s lay­ing on the hammock!

 

 

It’s effec­tive at repelling black flies, mos­qui­toes, and other fly­ing nui­sances. When you’re choos­ing mos­quito lamps or bug repel­lent lights for your patio, con­sider the ben­e­fits of this dual-function out­door lantern bugs hate.

  • Effec­tive within a 15 x15-foot area, the size of an aver­age patio or deck
  • Easy to use — no can­dle or open flame
  • Com­fort­able: No smelly lotions, sprays, or oils
  • Con­ve­nient: Attrac­tive size, portable, lightweight

 

 

If you’re going to be out­side you need a Ther­ma­cell Mos­quito Area Repel­lent Patio Lantern. All I can say is wow. This thing is amaz­ing! I took it out on our first trip to the cot­tage this year and it’s been a really warm spring where the black flies were all over the place. I turned this thing on and within 5 min­utes there was not one fly in sight. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! I hate mosquito’s as well, and their were none in sight while this device was on! I’m really impressed, and so happy that I was sent one for review! My hus­band said that this was a God-send, and he told me that we need a few more for camp, as well as for when he goes on fish­ing and his yearly hunt­ing trips! You can pur­chase these babies right at the ThermaCELL.com web­site, as well as at a lot of the big box stores such as Cana­dian Tire, Home Depot, Wal­mart, and even on Amazon.com!

 

 

 

 

I def­i­nitely give the Ther­ma­cell Mos­quito Area Repel­lent Patio Lantern device a huge thumbs up, and absolutely rec­om­mend that every­one own a hand­ful of these, they are that phenomenal!

Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as their deliv­ery time were also beyond outstanding!!

CoolCanucks Blog ~ FunBites Review!!

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

 

 

 

Don’t you wish that there was such a group called Picky-Eaters Anony­mous? They have groups for every­thing else, so why not?

Yes I hap­pen to know a lot of kid­dies who are just that, picky eaters!!

Bob­bie Rhoads knows exactly what it’s like to be the mommy of a picky eater, so that is how Fun­Bites was invented! As a mother with 2 daugh­ters, the old­est one was not a prob­lem when it came to the food cat­e­gory, she enjoyed almost every­thing she was given. Her younger daugh­ter on the other hand was a dif­fer­ent story; a picky eater from the get go! Fun­Bites instantly solved the picky eater dilemma!

 

 

 

 

“Fun­Bites cre­ates excit­ing bite-sized magic fea­tur­ing a cut­ter that quickly cuts food into small bites, curved blades that make cut­ting sim­ple and a match­ing pop­per that instantly pops! out fun-shaped bite-sized pieces — so hands are clean, food is untouched. Fun­Bites is BPA free and  made in the USA of a strong plas­tic that bridges plas­tic and metal… It’s no cookie cut­ter; it’s tough!  It works on any kid-friendly food from pan­cakes, waf­fles, cheese to que­sadil­las, deli sand­wiches and turkey burg­ers and more!”

 

 

See how they work in this awe­some video:

 

 

 

I was sent some of these phe­nom­e­nal Fun­Bites to review, and this time they were in Heart Shapes! My nieces had a lot of fun help­ing me cre­ate won­der­ful mas­ter­pieces out of food, and it really kept them occu­pied and inter­ested! These will solve your picky eater prob­lems as well! They also work great when cut­ting out sand­wiches for school lunches, and there is no more half sand­wiches left in their lunch bags after school!

 

 

 

 

Fun­Bites come in 2 styles, Cube it! which makes 12 cube shaped bites, and Luv it! which makes a big heart of 8 geo­met­ric shaped bites plus 2 bite size hearts. Fun­Bites are BPA free and top-rack dish­washer safe, and are super easy to use.  Choose your food, press down with the cut­ting por­tion and the push it out using the pop­per!  The blades work on any sur­face and are not sharp enough to harm lit­tle fin­gers if they han­dle it! These are rec­om­mended for ages 3–10.

And even bet­ter? A por­tion of the pro­ceeds from Fun­Bites goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I give Fun­Bites a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend that every mother of younger chil­dren have a set of Fun­Bites in their home!

 

Buy It!! Avail­able online at Fun­Bites, as well as http://www.tinywiggles.com/ which is in Canada!

CoolCanucks Blog ~ Baby Butz Cream Review!!

Friday, May 10th, 2013

 

 

 

Baby Butz 100% nat­ural, 100% guaranteed.

Why force your child to suf­fer even worse dia­per rash because of creams that con­tain toxic chem­i­cals and alcohol?

 

Baby Butz is the ONLY dia­per cream in Canada stamped with the Health Canada Nat­ural Health Prod­uct number.

 

Baby Butz cream is made with their PFP (Pro­pri­etary  For­mu­la­tion Process) and the fol­low­ing nat­ural ingredients:

♥Zinc Oxide ♥Lano­lin ♥Petro­la­tum (Petro­leum jelly) ♥Starch

Baby Butz does not include per­fume, alco­hol or chem­i­cals which rocks!!

 

 

 

 

 

Tons of par­ents go through that annoy­ing phase of baby’s skin con­di­tions and it can be awful frus­trat­ing find­ing just the right prod­uct to cure these conditions.

Dia­per rashes tend to be the most both­er­some issues for babies because they occur in extremely sen­si­tive areas and are often very painful if left untreated. Just by the looks of these unfor­tu­nate dia­per rashes leaves a par­ent crushed at the thought of what their poor lit­tle one must be feel­ing, and know­ing that they are in pain hurts a par­ent so badly.

 

 

 

 

 

I just recently came across a Canadian-based com­pany that car­ries a fan­tas­tic dia­per rash cream that left me want­ing to know more. Baby Butz is a mom-founded com­pany and was cre­ated because a car­ing mom saw a need for a dia­per rash cream that was clear of per­fumes, chem­i­cals and toxins!

See more about this awe­some prod­uct here on this video!

 

 

 

 

Demitri was truly blessed with hav­ing such a phe­nom­e­nal mommy who loves him uncon­di­tion­ally! This story tugs at my heart, that’s for sure!!

Baby Butz Cream is 100% nat­ural and 100% guar­an­teed. The ingre­di­ent list is: Zinc Oxide, Lano­lin, Petro­la­tum, Starch. The tex­ture of this cream is very thick and dense which means you need very lit­tle. After all, a lit­tle goes a long way! :)

 

 

 

 

Baby Butz Cream has already had tons of tes­ti­mo­ni­als … espe­cially from Neona­tal nurses in the Cal­gary NICUs that are buy­ing the cream and using it on the pre­emies! Also, The Win­nipeg Hos­pi­tal NICU is also using it as well on the pre­emies to name just a few!!

 

A blurb from the cre­ator of Baby Butz Cream:

 

“I have been allowed to put my mir­a­cle cream into 8 of their Man­i­toba loca­tions as a “test”.

If Baby Butz cream sells well dur­ing this test phase… it will be con­sid­ered for place­ment in all the other Shop­pers Drug Marts across Canada!

What does this mean to me…it’s a dream come true… Shop­pers Drug Mart is the largest drug store chain in Canada…it reaches across all the Provinces and hope­fully Baby Butz cream will be avail­able to many more people…especially for the babies that truly need this product.

As an incen­tive to mak­ing your next pur­chase of Baby Butz cream from Shop­pers Drug Mart…I am going to hold a CONTEST!  (I am sorry but this will only be for Man­i­toba res­i­dents for now).

Buy your next Baby Butz cream at one of the eight Shop­pers Drug Mart loca­tions listed below and then send in your receipt for a chance to win a Mom + Baby gift bas­ket worth over $100.00. http://a.pgtb.me/WZnRKq

I am putting all the good­ies together and I will make sure you won’t be disappointed.

Every­one wins with a con­test like this!   Now go clean off those shelves, please!”

Cool­Canucks Blog ~ Thera Pearl Hot & Cold Therapy Review!!

Friday, May 10th, 2013

 

 

Being a health care aide for many years, I now suf­fer from pain in my lower back and my neck that never seems to totally go away. Some days are worse than oth­ers, and I find myself hunched over from spasms which isn’t the best feel­ing in the world. I also feel so sorry for my elderly par­ents who also suf­fer from arthritic pain. We have tried every pain fight­ing med­ica­tion out there, and we have yet to come up with our pain relief mir­a­cle. Thanks to Thera Pearl doc­tor designed reusable Hot & Cold Ther­apy, we can finally rest easy now that we have found the answer to our pain relief prayers!

 

 

 

The Thera Pearl Hot & Cold Ther­apy packs are for use with com­mon aches, pains, swelling and even bruis­ing! You can freeze these to use as a cold pack, or sim­ply slip it into the microwave to use as a hot pack!

These reusable hot and cold packs are also latex, lead, and BPA Free which rocks!

 

 

 

Thera Pearl sells the very best Hot & Cold Ther­apy packs out there! Choose from Sports Pack, Eye-ssential Mask, Neck Wrap, Back Wrap, Con­tour Pack, and even cute lit­tle Pals for kids Scrapes, Swelling and Bee Stings!

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was inevitable that I def­i­nitely wanted to review their best Neck Wrap for use on my achy tight neck. It hon­estly helped when I heated this for 1.5 min­utes and placed it directly on my sor­est spot, giv­ing me instant relief!

 

The Pearl Tech­nol­ogy con­tained in every Ther­a­Pearl pack is game chang­ing inno­va­tion born of an age old ther­apy. Crafted by a doc­tor who knew she could offer her patients some­thing bet­ter than a bag of frozen peas, Ther­a­Pearl was designed with you in mind. Whether chilled or heated, Pearl Tech­nol­ogy™ con­ve­niently holds its tem­per­a­ture for the doc­tor rec­om­mended time of 20 min­utes and con­forms to your body to deliver the per­fect relief from your aches and pains.

Eas­ily pli­able when frozen, our Pearl Tech­nol­ogy™ is cold enough to offer tar­geted ice ther­apy with­out sac­ri­fic­ing flex­i­bil­ity. Not stiff, jagged or uncom­fort­able, chilled Ther­a­Pearl packs stay smooth and soft on your skin as they con­form to deliver sooth­ing relief.

When con­ve­niently heated in a microwave, the Pearl Tech­nol­ogy™ in your Ther­a­Pearl pack is the per­fect solu­tion to relax stiff mus­cles and encour­age blood flow and heal­ing. Deliv­er­ing con­sis­tent heat ther­apy directly to your desired relief area with­out a mess, the reusable packs are com­bi­na­tion ther­apy in one con­ve­nient product.

At Ther­a­Pearl, we rec­og­nize it’s all about giv­ing peo­ple the oppor­tu­nity to see and inter­act with our prod­uct.  When they do, they love it.  Unlike other prod­ucts, our high qual­ity clear pack­ag­ing show­cases the prod­uct inside, and our poke hole allows peo­ple to feel the dif­fer­ence for them­selves.  The dis­tinct orna­men­tal appear­ance of our pearls is our trade­mark, and it’s how con­sumers rec­og­nize our prod­uct in stores.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thera Pearl scores a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, that’s for sure!!
