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


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!!



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




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

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


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:



Child and Baby Products

Food Stor­age

Non-Plastic Toys


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!!






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

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. :
Give it a try: the results are amaz­ing and proven sci­en­tif­i­cally.
How does it work? This prod­uct com­bines two plants for an inten­sive dou­ble action:
• Green Cof­fee bean to reduce the appear­ance of fat stor­age*
• 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!

A real boost to your detox pro­gram: the detox rolling-pressure and suc­tion tech­nique acces­sory.
• Helps prod­uct pen­e­trate • Acti­vates micro-circulation • More effec­tive draining




For the low price of $30 for these two prod­ucts, you can also achieve an awe­some firmer body with no use of pills or harm­ful diets! As usual Yves Rocher did not disappoint!!

Thanks to Yves Rocher Canada, there are going to be 10 win­ners of a D-14 Shape Refiner PLUS a Slim­ming mas­sage acces­sory! SWEET!!!!!

This com­pany scores a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!
