It seems that every single holiday that passes by has its’ own treats associated with it. Easter is no exception with colourful jelly beans, chocolate eggs, and little yellow marshmallows in the shape of chicks! Treats can be fun, especially for kids, but there has to be a balance in it all.

This year’s Easter basket won’t be relying so heavily on sugar-laden candy – there will be pencils and crayons, books and toys, honibe® honey delights® and kids honibe honey gummies™ complete daily multivitamins! The treats from honibe®  are naturally sweetened with honey, and contain 50% less refined sugar. They’re also gluten-free, dairy-free, and have no artificial colours or preservatives.

This year our family has changed its’ health routine by adding more exercise, eating less processed foods, and taking our vitamins to ensure we’re getting everything we need! The honibe®  vitamins have three great flavours to enjoy: natural berry, orange, and fruit punch – and the kids love them!

Here’s a little video I shared on Instagram, it’s my first time making a stop motion animated video (and it’s not of Tim Burton stature), but enjoy: View Post

TheJoyOfMissingOutCover-HiRes

As a business owner, a blogger, and a mom that socializes far too much on Facebook, I spend a lot of time online. No matter where I am, the call of email, articles, silly tweets, and iMessage is available to me via phone, laptop, or computer. I am always connected.

In 2012, a mom-of-three and freelance writer, Christina Crook disconnected from the online world for 31 days. She turned off her phone, her laptop, and wrote letters on a  typewriter that she sent to a friend (via snail mail!), who then uploaded onto a blog. The project might seem extreme to many, but it became the inspiration for Christina’s new book called “The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World“.

The beautifully written book focuses on how technology impacts our lives and the lives of our children, the relationships we have, our communities, our health, and our world. The author examines how we use technology, and in turn, how it uses us. The lack of balance and harmony in our lives is directly connected to our dependance on our online world.

Christina Crook  reminds us to maintain healthy screen habits, and limit our personal time online. Although it might seem difficult to do so, disconnecting can be a breath of fresh air in our digital world. It might remind us of simpler times, when we didn’t keep the internet in our purses, and instead appreciated the time spent outside, personal time for reading books and playing with our children.

How often do you disconnect from the online world? Could you do an internet fast?

And by iron, we mean Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. The 3 oz travel size meets airline standards. Slip it into your carry-on bag, and with a simple spray, you’ll be wrinkle free all trip long. (It’s also a great fabric refresher if you have to wear your clothes more than once on vacation.) Click here to read more and grab a coupon.

3. Bring an Empty Water Bottle
After you get through security, several airports have filtered water stands to fill your bottle. You’ll also find that most airport cafes will gladly fill your water bottle as well. View Post
