Glitzies: Product Review

Official Gltizies STELLA Hair Stickers
My girls love hair fashion.  For Little A, its all about clips, hair bands, etc.  For Big A, who rarely ever brushes her hair, and usually is quite happy having it tangled up into a rats nest, its more about the colour.  She has been begging to die her hair for ages (bleach the ends, specifically, which I oppose simply because of how harmful bleaching is).  But apparently ALL the girls are colouring their hair already.  Ugh!

Fortunately, the girls were both thrilled with the products we were sent from Glitzies.  Glitzies are DIY hair stickers that come in a variety of colours and styles.

Little A was so excited about them, she wanted to try them immediately, which unfortunately led to a fight because she was just about to take a bath.  I was finally able to convince her to wait a few days and wear them to the birthday party she was attending.

This little 6-year-old was easily able to apply them herself and was absolutely delighted with the results.  She loves that they stay on so well. At the party, she got non-stop compliments from the other kids and parents, who were very intrigued by the Glitzies and wanted to know what they were and where they could get some.  You can purchase them online!

Big A received a more mature design with leopard print hearts, but she's decided to save hers for her most anticipated upcoming event: the upper grades at her school are going to be performing at Massey Hall! 

To me, this temporary hair decorating solution is a much better option than hair dye, and for how, Big A has stopped nagging me for the dye job.  Definitely a win-win in my book!

Disclosure: We were sent complimentary samples to try, but all opinions on this blog are our own.

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
