My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree on DVD November 1st! #Review #Giveaway

"Mommy, do you think Santa knows My Little Pony?" Hannah asked me the other day.

"I'm sure he does, he has to keep up with all the toys that girls and boys like," I responded.

"Good, because I really want to ask him for Princess Cadence's castle with Baby Flurry Heart."

Clearly My Little Pony is a big hit in my house right now. This week Hannah has been home with croup, so it was especially good time for us to review My Little Pony Equestria Girls - Legend of Everfree. And as part of this review, three YYZ Bambina readers can win a copy of their own!

Silk’n Blue – Your Skin Care Clinic at Home

In the past year, the clerks at the liquor store have finally stopped asking for my ID – even though I usually keep it out just in case when I cash out. I look much younger than I am, and sometimes I believe it’s due to my acne.

Adult acne is something I will battle and need to keep under control for the rest of my life.  I’ve tried many of the drugstore acne products. Some work better than others, but I’m always left in the morning patting on powder, hoping it will last the day and that people don’t mistake me for a student (I work at a university).

So when I heard about Silk’n Blue I was excited to give it a shot.

Silk’n Blue is a hand-held treatment device that uses the power of blue light and heat to penetrate your skin, which neutralizes bacteria. Being allergic to sulfa I’m also pleased it’s a natural, drug free solution. Using it was like going to a skin clinic without having to make an appointment, and it was super easy to use.

My 1st Single Mother's Day

Today I celebrated my fifth Mother's Day. Today also marks my first Single Mother's Day. This is the first Mother's Day I woke up without my daughter under the same roof. And this is the first Mother's Day Hannah truly understood.

(Full disclosure, there's still plenty of P&G products I buy to try on my own - especially the beauty ones!)

Have you ever wanted to share your thoughts on P&G products? Are you obsessed with the scent of Gain? Thankful that Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser is magic on child's artwork on the wall? If so, you need to visit https://www.pgeveryday.ca - where Canadians can share their thoughts about P&G products!

Treat your feet with Footlogix Medical! #diabeticfeet #diabetesfeet

The first thing my kid does when she gets home from preschool is kick of her winter boots and take her socks off, exposing her cute, precious feet.

I follow shortly thereafter. I do not take proper care of my feet, thus they are neither cute nor precious. During the year, if the temperature is warm enough, I wear my dress shoes sans socks. I’ve never had a pedicure (I don’t like people touching my feet). I’ve never done the “Vaseline in the sock” trick – mostly because it sounds so messy, not because I don’t need help. Every winter I end up with dry, cracked heels. Gross to look at and itchy as well.

So when I heard about when I heard about Footlogix Medical Intensive Moisturizing Mousse, I knew I needed to give it a try. Footlogix Medical® is a mousse, so it's easy to apply – it's not greasy and absorbs very quickly. You don't have to sit around waiting; you can just apply and go (or in my case, apply and go to sleep). I actually feel it soothing my feet, especially after a long day of walking and wearing thick winter socks.
