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!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lilikin&Friends Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

 

 

 

 

Intro­duc­ing Lilikin&Friends, the hottest new plush toys avail­able on the mar­ket!

Most peo­ple absolutely adore stuffed toys, both young or old! We all have many emo­tions that we share … smil­ing when we are happy, frown­ing when we are sad, the look of won­der when we are con­fused. But no mat­ter what, Lilikin&Friends stand by your side no mat­ter what!

“Lilikin&Friends are top qual­ity plush toys made with cot­ton fab­rics that are cer­ti­fied organic by the Global Organic Tex­tile Stan­dard (GOTS). They’re stuffed with eco-conscious recy­cled polypropy­lene fibres, and have been tested and approved as safe for even the very youngest of our friends.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lilikin & Friends were born in the sum­mer of 2009. Cre­ated by Kim­ber­ley Cle­land a sea­soned toy designer with 10 years of indus­try expe­ri­ence with children’s toys. The com­pany is based in Mon­treal and is 100% Cana­dian which rocks!!

Lilikin is the melan­choly grey kit­ten. Mol­ly­cod­dle is the ultra-dainty albino bunny, and  Eleven is the small-for-his-age mon­key! They are so soft, adorable, cer­ti­fied organic, and each has their own lit­tle personality!!

 

 

 

 

We had the oppor­tu­nity of review­ing the Mol­ly­cod­dle: The Ultra Dainty Albino Bunny and baby Riley went crazy over her! Mol­ly­cod­dle has fit in per­fectly since Riley loves bun­nies, and she shares her love of baked goods and cake pops with Mol­ly­cod­dle!! She is so beau­ti­ful because she’s more girly and wears a pretty pink bal­le­rina skirt!

 

 

 

 

 

Mol­ly­cod­dle is 18″ from head to toe and weighs approx­i­mately 1 lb.  All brand­ing mate­r­ial is printed on recy­cled post-consumer waste paper with vegetable-based inks. Stuffed with poly­ester fiber and recy­cled poly­eth­yl­ene pel­lets for a heavy, droopy body that can be gen­tly posed!

 

 

 

 

Lilikin&Friends gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I rec­om­mend that every­one own one, or all three!

The other item that I picked to review was the Eye-ssential Mask. This con­forms to your body to deliver sooth­ing relief from dry eyes, headaches/sinuses, puffy eyes and more!

As soon as I saw that it worked on puffy eyes, I was instantly sold! My eyes often look sim­i­lar to that of a rac­coon due to very lit­tle sleep and also age/stress plays a fac­tor (as real­ity has it).

This awe­some eye mask worked on sooth­ing my tired eyes! I saw a notice­able improve­ment after usage, and totally rec­om­mend both of these phe­nom­e­nal prod­ucts to every­one out there!!

 

 

 

 

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

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ The Swiss Cheese Theory of Life (Paperback) Review & Giveaway!!

Friday, March 9th, 2012

 

 

The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life is a great self help book that is a no non­sense look at your life in a humor­ous yet seri­ously healthy way. The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life helps us make peace with the dis­ap­point­ments and unre­al­ized expec­ta­tions in life. How To Get Through Life’s Holes With­out Get­ting Stuck In Them!

Here are some of the books char­ac­ters to help you on your jour­ney of self dis­cov­ery and get your out of your life’s holes:

 

You have your men­tor The Swiss Whiz.
He will guide you through your book jour­ney teach­ing you about the slices of life and how to not get caught up in the holes.

 

 

Here is The Swiss Cheese Fairy
She will be there to remind you of your Inner Strengths and teach you Self-Love and Acceptance.

 

 

Stinky Cheese: The Stinky Cheese is sim­ply just there to remind you of your unhealthy habits, thoughts and moments in life.

 

 

The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life by Judith A. Bel­mont and Lora Shor is a self devel­op­ment book with a difference.

 

“Holes are all around us and try­ing to plunge us into them. “The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life” is an inspi­ra­tional book that takes a humor­ous slant on the many events of life, as Judith A. Bel­mont & Lora Shor offer wis­dom on nav­i­gat­ing life’s holes all around them. Hap­pi­ness is everyone’s ulti­mate goal, and the duo offer advice on how to make it a real­ity, sug­gest­ing not to get stuck in any holes. “The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life” is a choice and much rec­om­mended pick, not to be overlooked.”

 

 

The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life!

Ten Take Away Tips

1. Life is more like Swiss than Amer­i­can or Cream Cheese, no mat­ter how much we crave pre­dictabil­ity and smooth­ness.
2. Peo­ple who are more flex­i­ble and resilient tend to get through the holes in life eas­ier and are less likely to get “stuck. We might not have con­trol over every­thing, but we have choices on how we han­dle things.

 

3. It’s a fact – The larger the holes, the sweeter and more dis­tinc­tive the fla­vor of the cheese. Like­wise, more “holes” in our lives can help build unique­ness and char­ac­ter. Take care of your­self by real­iz­ing that there is noth­ing pos­i­tive about being negative!

 

4. It’s a fact – The holes in the Swiss are called “eyes.” In life, we develop insight into our­selves and oth­ers as we move through chal­lenges. Fur­ther­more, Swiss with no holes is called “Blind Swiss.” Liv­ing life in denial is like liv­ing with blind­ers on.
5. Fon­due can never turn into a block of cheese – There­fore, liv­ing with regret will keep you “stuck” in a hole. Plan for the worst but expect the best.

 

6. Dif­fer­en­ti­ate “pro­duc­tive regret” from “unpro­duc­tive regret.” Learn from your expe­ri­ences and real­ize what tools you might need to move on and do things dif­fer­ently. With the right tools you can do anything!

 

7. It is not what actu­ally hap­pens to us, it is our per­cep­tion. Ralph Waldo Emer­son so beau­ti­fully said that “So much of our sun­light is blocked by our stand­ing in our own shadow.”

 

8. Behind some suc­cess there can be fail­ure. Do things dif­fer­ently and expect dif­fer­ent results!

 

9. Watch out for “stinky cheese think­ing!” W.A.I.T. ! What Am I Thinking?

 

10. Have fun in the moment, open your­self to oth­ers and con­nect, and embrace stress rather than seek to avoid it! Life is not a marathon, it is a journey…Enjoy the journey!

 

My take: This book kept me inter­ested. It is not dry, nor is it by all means bor­ing! This is a humourous light hearted self help book that won’t leave you feel­ing depressed about your life. It’s basi­cally ten self-help books in one, and it has very cute and help­ful car­toons through­out. This is one of the best self help books that I have ever read! Very infor­ma­tive, very enlightening.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ FunBites Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

 

 

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 exactly how Fun­Bites works by watch­ing this awe­some video:

 

I was sent some of these phe­nom­e­nal prod­ucts to try, and they work like a charm! 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!

 

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!

 

Win It!! Enter my sweep­stakes give­away below for a chance to win some Fun­Bites of your very own! Open to Cana­dian and US residents.

CoolCanucks Review of the Skoy Cloth!!

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

 

 

 

The Skoy cloth is a com­plete God-send at my house! We go through so much paper towel it’s ridicu­lous! Hubby even uses the paper towel to blow his nose, so for the amount that I am buy­ing weekly is  extremely costly and unnec­es­sary! The price of paper prod­ucts nowa­days is through the roof and pulls at my purse-strings. I mean who knew that these prices would sky-rocket? It is a neces­sity in everyone’s home, there­fore I guess they can charge what they darn well please because they know that every­one needs and buys paper prod­ucts on a reg­u­lar basis. Unbelievable!!

 

 

Skoy cloths are an alter­na­tive to clean­ing with paper tow­els and sponges, con­sid­er­ing 2.5 mil­lion TONS of paper tow­els are fill­ing up land­fills annu­ally … that is dreadful!

The Skoy cloth is good for the envi­ron­ment. It cuts down on the amount of garbage you throw away and it means fewer trees have to be chopped down by con­tin­u­ally using paper.

 

If you find you are using paper tow­els every day or even once a week, that’s too much. Switch to the Skoy cloth. Paper tow­els have lim­ited util­ity when using them to clean up messes anyhow.

Using a Skoy cloth is really basic and easy. You sim­ply wet it with water prior to using. Doing this makes it go from almost a card­board like feel­ing, to feel­ing just like strong and durable paper towel. Now go ahead and get clean­ing! Once you’re done, just allow it to air dry (note: it will dry in what­ever way you lay it. If you lay it flat, it will dry flat. If you lay it hang­ing over a bot­tle of cleaner, it will dry in a ‘hang­ing’ U shape). The Skoy cloth is a per­ma­nent sta­ple in our house now, and I vow not to use any­thing else! They’re that great!!

Click here to see how to pur­chase your very own, you won’t be sorry! You can also pur­chase the Skoy Cloths inex­pen­sively at your local Lon­don Drugs, so be sure to watch for them!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lit Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, May 27th, 2011

These glit­ter cos­met­ics are truly amaz­ing. I would rec­c­om­mend them to any­one! I have owned other big brand name Glitter’s and none of them even come close com­pared to Lit cos­met­ics glit­ter. First of all the glit­ter is VERY pig­mented, and they are very true to colour. This is what I seen in the pack­age that I received. I was very excited!!

The Amaz­ing thing about the Lit cos­met­ics Glit­ter Base is that it really does NOT allow the glit­ter to crease on your eyes. And It can also be used as a base for eye­shad­ows which is what I tried for a day and your eye­shadow lasts all day and night (until you take it off of course.) It enhances the colours of the eye­shad­ows, and I have also used it under my blush and it works with that as well! This is amaz­ing! I love this stuff!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to any­one who loves glit­ter and wants it to last all day long!

Lit cos­met­ics insists that with No Glit­ter there is No Glory!!  Start your LIT expe­ri­ence off with one of their great kits that include every­thing you need to add some glitz your look right up!  These nat­ural, water-based prod­ucts are alco­hol, paraben and Propy­lene Gly­col free.  LIT Cos­met­ics are hypoal­ler­genic and ideal for sen­si­tive skin. This fun, excit­ing prod­uct is easy to use and suit­able for every­one.  Bring some sparkle to any party with LIT Cos­met­ics or put them on your giv­ing list for some­one spe­cial and deserving!

Lit Cos­met­ics glit­ter is amaz­ing because unlike other glit­ter bases this one is com­pletely organic, and when it’s on you don’t even feel the glit­ter is there. No sticky, itchy, fly every­where mess. Best of all the patented water-based glit­ter base will last you for years. It’s a bang for your buck and a real defi­nate “must have.” They have the best cos­met­ics out there by far! Also note: ship­ping is just $10 any­where in the world!

HISTORY
The Birth of Lit Cos­met­ics
The idea for Lit has roots back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the owner/inventor of Lit Cos­met­ics, was sling­ing drinks in the night clubs around Cal­gary. Hav­ing always been a fan of fun makeup and a lit­tle “bling, bling”, Jodie felt the need to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the rest of the girly girls serv­ing up drinks. That’s when she hit on the idea of glit­ter eye makeup!

The basic con­cept was sim­ple; sparkles give a look of opti­mum colour inten­sity and light reflec­tion at all times of the day and into the night. Jodie had finally hit on a cool makeup to match her flashy personality!

After look­ing into the prod­ucts on the mar­ket there was sur­pris­ingly no decent glit­ter eye shad­ows to be found, thus Jodie was forced to take mat­ters into her own hands and began exper­i­ment­ing. Long hours and months of test­ing in her “top secret” base­ment lab eval­u­at­ing the pros and cons of all other glit­ter prod­ucts she exposed a num­ber of flaws, the most obvi­ous being the appli­ca­tion process and the adhe­sive. With time and deter­mi­na­tion, Jodie devel­oped a won­der­ful adhe­sive that holds, is com­fort­able and keeps the bril­liant shine of the glit­ter, as well as a whole new appli­ca­tion process for an excit­ing loose colour cos­metic line. Since 2001, Lit Cos­met­ics is now not only a bar-star prod­uct but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by any­one of any age at anytime—and that’s how Lit was born!

Why Lit is Dif­fer­ent
“No glit­ter, no glory” is our motto—fun, yet true. Being in “glit­terol­ogy” (the sci­ence of glit­ter) for 6 years we have improved glitter/loose colour makeup as it is sold in the mar­ket today. With our liq­uid adhe­sive now per­fected, we have also bro­ken down our pig­ments into 4 dif­fer­ent sizes and 4 dif­fer­ent varieties-Lit sim­ply spe­cial­izes in glitter/loose colour makeup. Remem­ber: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a sin­gle colour high­lighter to hav­ing 10 shades blended over your eyelids-we dare you… Let the fun begin, and your cre­ativ­ity soar!

What is the Vision of Lit Cos­met­ics?
Other than want­ing to “glit­ter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way peo­ple per­ceive or think about glit­ter makeup. Our vision was to cre­ate a good qual­ity, sexy new makeup line unlike any other that is fun, excit­ing, easy to use and suit­able for every­one. Whether it’s a day at the office or a spe­cial night out, glit­ter is the per­fect com­pli­ment to your look. Get noticed, get con­fi­dent — get Lit!

A Note To Cus­tomers
Hello fel­low Lit Chicks and we can’t for­get about those Lit Dudes out there, it is now time to have fun and be cre­ative with your make-up, acces­sories and fashion—to real­ize that girls do just want to have fun, as Cyndi Lau­per preached to us in the 80’s. Life is way too short to be bor­ing or to sim­ply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who says, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are, and there are a lot of you because I hear it every sin­gle day! So don’t be blocked by your­self, break though and be bold, be beau­ti­ful. This next bit of infor­ma­tion may sound a lit­tle odd but it’s true, and all the present glit­ter girls of the world know this lit­tle secret and I believe in it as well: glit­ter is good for the soul. Some­thing hap­pens when you add a lit­tle glit­ter to your day. It gives you a smile, a good energy and just pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you ma’am! So give Lit Cos­met­ics a try and enjoy every­thing you get out of it, like I have for the past 11 years! My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seri­ously all the time, there is no age limit for glit­ter so you old gals like myself get it goin’ on and always remem­ber, “no glit­ter, no glory!”
