Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

 

 

 

 

After doing many review & give­aways for BodyKandi.com, you may all have real­ized by now that I am a huge fan of their awe­some lin­gerie, and it’s no secret.

Shop­ping for exotic lin­gerie, sexy clothes, hot club­wear, bridal night­wear, erotic cos­tumes, exotic dancewear, mas­sage oils and toys has never been so easy… At BodyKandi.com they are ded­i­cated to bring you the best lin­gerie and inti­mate apparel at low unbeat­able prices!

Many Forms of exotic danc­ing are becom­ing pop­u­lar in the night clubs and bars of today. This style of danc­ing is meant to be seduc­tive and sex­ual, so it only makes sense that dancers would wear exotic dance wear dur­ing their per­for­mance. This could include mul­ti­ple types of lin­gerie, but also torn cloth­ing, and even sexy cloth­ing; all which are usu­ally paired with high heels. BodyKandi.com’s exclu­sive Dance Wear not only adds to the mood of the dance, it looks great and allows the dancers to show off all their amaz­ing assets!

 

 

 

 

 

BodyKandi.com sells so many styles of lin­gerie to make for an excit­ing night for any dancer! Dancers often choose to change their exotic dancewear depend­ing on the type of rou­tine they are per­form­ing. The many acces­sories that can be paired with exotic dance wear also allow dancers to look and feel their best. Basic acces­sories include garter belts, which are worn around the waist and are made to hold up thigh highs. Thigh highs, or stock­ings of any sort, are also great acces­sories because they make your legs appear longer and tighter. You will also find the best High heels which are the ulti­mate acces­sory because they are sexy and make any dancer’s legs look great!

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of these sexy num­bers are wel­comed pieces to our bed­room, because they are so HOT!! Be sure to treat your­self to some of this amaz­ing Lin­gerie and watch your hubby’s eyes light up like no other!

CoolCanuck Blog Contest ~ Sibu Beauty Review!!

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Sibu Beauty is a very won­der­ful com­pany that makes lux­u­ri­ous nat­ural skin cleansers, mois­tur­iz­ers, other top­i­cal treat­ments and dietary sup­ple­ments that beau­tify and pro­tect you. The Sibu Beauty prod­ucts are made from Himalayan sea buck­thorn berry which is also known as the “beauty berry”. Sea buck­thorn con­tains over 190 bioac­tive com­pounds that help to restore, revi­tal­ize and pro­tect youth­ful beauty…from the inside-out and outside-in. These berries help to nour­ish skin, hair, nails and also even aid in diges­tion with pow­er­ful antiox­i­dants, essen­tial fatty acids and Omega 7

 

Sibu Beauty was kind enough to send some prod­ucts to review:

 

 

 

Sea Buck­thorn Seed Oil

–Quick acting/readily absorbed

–For all skin-types

–Helps dimin­ish wrinkles/age-spots

–Pro­motes skin recov­ery and healing

–10 ml bot­tle w/ drop­per tip

 

 SibuBeau­ty­SeaBuck­thorn Bal­anc­ing Facial Cleanser

–Leaves skin look­ing and feel­ing radi­ant and refreshed

–Removes excess oil and impurities

–Con­tains micro-particles for a gen­tle exfoliation

–Great for remov­ing make-up

–Non-foaming gel for­mula for all skin types

 

 SibuBeau­ty­SeaBuck­thorn Hydrat­ing Serum

–Pro­motes youth­ful skin tone and texture

–Fights age with­out dam­ag­ing chemicals

–Bright­ens com­plex­ion and evens out skin tone

–Helps pro­tect against envi­ron­men­tal stress

–Nat­u­rally stim­u­lates col­la­gen production

 

 

 

 

I am always look­out for fan­tas­tic new prod­ucts to pam­per my skin and my body but also find that my skin is super sen­si­tive and will break out eas­ily if in con­tact with some­thing that has too many chem­i­cals in it. I used all of the Sibu Beauty prod­ucts over the period of a month and really have found a dif­fer­ence in how health my skin looks and feels. It did not have any adverse reac­tions like break­outs or red­ness when using the Sibu Beauty prod­ucts. For years I have had a bit of red blotch­ing around my nose and on my cheeks and found that these prod­ucts have helped reduce that redness.

 

 

 

 

I used the Sibu Beauty facial cleanser reli­giously each and every day, it is not harsh, rough on my skin and does not feel dried out after, like I find many cleansers to be. In the evening I would use the Sibu Beauty Hydrat­ing Serum on my face and neck. This prod­uct is not oily or heavy I loved the way it felt on my skin after using it. In the morn­ings I would use the day­time facial cleanser and let it soak in before apply­ing my makeup. I like that it hydrates and mois­tur­izes my skin and keeps it feel­ing that way all day long.  All in all though, using these prod­ucts together has made a notice­able dif­fer­ence, my skin is feel­ing so much health­ier, the blotchy red­ness has been reduced and my skin feels so much softer. I would rec­om­mend these Sibu Beauty prod­ucts for any­one who wants to beau­tify and pro­tect their skin.

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!!

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!

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!”

 

Loca­tions:

 

Shop­pers Drug Mart

2656 Pem­bina Hwy.

Win­nipeg, MB.

CoolCanucks Blog ~ Nisim® International Review!!

Friday, May 10th, 2013

 

 

 

 

Nisim Inc. is a Cana­dian Com­pany which has devel­oped many inno­v­a­tive and suc­cess­ful prod­ucts…such as Kalo® a hair inhibitor to pre­vent unwanted body hair from grow­ing back, and Mila­gro a nail strength­ener, as well as F.A.S.T.® For­ti­fied Amino Scalp Ther­apy for the fastest grow­ing hair possible!

 

 

 

Nisim is one of my all-time favorite hair-care prod­ucts store, and Nisim Inter­na­tional get’s brag­ging rights from this CoolCanuck!!

I can­not express how much I really love the F.A.S.T.® For­ti­fied Amino Scalp Ther­apy sham­poo and con­di­tioner, and absolutely swear by these prod­ucts! I have done a num­ber of reviews for Nisim in the past, and they keep me com­ing back!!

F.A.S.T.® is designed to grow your hair as fast as humanly pos­si­ble.  F.A.S.T.® line includes both sham­poo and conditioner!

Nisim has cre­ated a prod­uct that has been clin­i­cally proven to con­trol exces­sive hair loss and regrow hair. Nisim’s prod­ucts are shipped around the world and also has dis­trib­u­tors in more than 30 countries!!

 

 

 

Nisim’s® prod­ucts are all made with nat­ural herbal based active ingre­di­ents devel­oped using the pro­pri­etary extrac­tion meth­ods devel­oped by Nisim after over 20 years of research on the study of hair growth.

“All of our prod­ucts are backed by a 100% money back guar­an­tee. You can try our prod­ucts risk free know­ing that we will refund your money if you are not sat­is­fied for ANY rea­son.” Nisim® Inter­na­tional sells the BEST Hair Prod­ucts out there!

I absolutely both the sham­poo and con­di­tioner from the F.A.S.T.® line and I hon­estly can­not rave enough about this prod­uct! I just adore it, period! It makes my hair look so shiny, smooth, and healthy —– as well as mak­ing my hair stronger! My hair also grows so much quicker! I love it that much!

Another great prod­uct that they carry is called Kalo. This is a NEW herbal solu­tion to an OLD painful prob­lem — Hair Removal!

“Nisim® began sell­ing the Kalo® Hair Inhibitor prod­uct in the spring of 1997. Kalo has also been sold through hair salons and spas. Kalo® has been very well received in the mar­ket, so much so that there are many knock-off prod­ucts; even one of the large drug com­pa­nies has cre­ated a prod­uct to com­pete with Kalo®.”

 

 

 

This time around I was asked to review the new sul­fate free FAST sham­poo and con­di­tioner 2 pack from nisiminc.ca and I absolutely LOVE IT! Finally, a sham­poo and con­di­tioner that’s good for you! F.A.S.T. sulfate-free sham­poo is unbe­liev­ably rich and full of mois­tur­iz­ing lather, pro­vid­ing extreme hydra­tion to chron­i­cally dry hair while being light enough for all hair types.

Sul­fate, or sodium lau­ril­sul­fate (also known as sodium lau­rel sul­fate or SLS), is a chem­i­cal used in many com­mer­cial prepa­ra­tions. It is often used for clean­ing solu­tions in the kitchen. In other words, it is a grease cut­ter and a dry­ing agent. It is also a surfactant.

 

A sur­fac­tant reduces the sur­face ten­sion so that instead of hav­ing two small drops of water, they will now more read­ily com­bine to make one, larger drop. It will also per­mit the mix of oil and water, which does not hap­pen under nor­mal con­di­tions because sur­face ten­sion keeps each as their own entity.

 

Think about it, if sul­fate can cut the grease in house clean­ers, it can cer­tainly destroy the nat­ural oils that are in your hair. With­out oil, your hair will turn frizzy. Your scalp will also become devoid of the nat­ural lubri­cants. Your body’s response is to make more oil. This becomes a vicious cycle the more you wash your hair. Not only will your scalp become very oily, so will your fore­head where sham­poo is in con­tact with it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAST sham­poo and con­di­tioner from nisiminc.ca are my all-time favorites when it comes to hair care. This is the only sham­poo and con­di­tioner that I will use, and noth­ing else even com­pares to it! I love the smell of it, and the way that your hair feels after you step out of the shower is great!

The biggest ben­e­fit is that you may actu­ally gain some hair vol­ume because of the health of your scalp and hair fol­li­cles will improve with­out the irri­ta­tion of sul­fate in your sham­poo. So, if you have a sen­si­tive scalp, chron­i­cally dry or brit­tle hair, colour treat­ments or perms, these are some of the rea­sons why sul­fate –free sham­poo is bet­ter for your hair.

 

As usual, nisiminc.ca get’s a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!

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. :
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:

• 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 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!
