Start off 2015 with His and Hers Essentials from P&G #PGmom #Giveaway

So between moving, surviving the flu and barely pulling off Christmas, I haven't had a lot of time to blog. To make it up to my readers, the last post of 2014 includes an incredible giveaway!

December was a great month for Chris in our household - at least when it came to the #PGmom program. We got to attend a Toronto Raptors game as part of Swiffer's #ManClean campaign where he was able to take over my Twitter account AND a bunch of new, great Old Spice products came to our condo just for him.

Would you like your man to have the latest from Old Spice? So far Chris likes the Old Spice Antiperspirant best - with all the hard work he's put in around the condo it keeps him dry and smelling great!

And of course, P&G would never forget us ladies! My favourite product from the kit is the Pantene Pro-V Heat Potion Serum. With the cold temperatures, blow drying my hair every time I wash it is a must.

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be among the first people across the country to view episodes of the latest Netflix Original Series for kids - DreamWorks' All Hail King Julien. Now everyone in Canada is lucky because the first five episodes of the series are available to stream on Netflix Canada!

Do You Wanna Build a Snowman? Sing-Along Edition of Frozen now on DVD

For the longest time, I didn't really "get" the whole Frozen phenomenon...because I had never seen the film.

Now that Hannah and I have watched the Frozen Sing-Along Edition DVD, I get it (not that I'll be getting into any fights for swag...yet.) If you've never seen it, Frozen is the story of two Royal sisters. You join Princess Anna as she sets off on an epic journey – teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a snowman named Olaf – to find her sister Queen Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.

Have a Happy Visit with Santa using Fast Pass at Upper Canada Mall

Before we went to Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket a few days ago, we had quite an interesting collection of holiday photos of Hannah with Santa. Her first Christmas, she cried...the entire time. Last year, because of the ice storm, we didn't get a chance to have a "proper" session - so we just have an unimpressed Hannah in her jacket sitting on Santa's lap.

We finally have a photo I can proudly show off, thanks to the super Santa and his fantastic photo elves at Upper Canada Mall.

Hannah was acting shy on her visit, looking down a lot, and the photographer still managed to capture her and Santa looking at the camera:

RBC Rewards take the chill out of holiday shopping

My Mom is one of “those” people. You all know one. Before the pumpkins come out for Halloween, she’s already finished all of her holiday shopping.

Until my daughter was born, I was the complete opposite. Come December 23rd you’d find me in a hectic mall, looking lost as I went from store to store attempting to find awesome gifts for my family and friends. And because I was so stressed from the trip, I also bought a bunch of unnecessary gifts for me as retail therapy, further expanding my holiday gift budget.

Now that I’m a mom my shopping isn’t so last minute (can you imagine trying to navigate a stroller through a mall in its busiest season let alone find a parking spot?). And thanks to RBC Rewards, by starting now, the first week of December, my holidays will be happy and stress-free…even if we just moved into our new home.

Thankfully I have the RBC Rewards Holiday website to assist both my budget and time constraints. I can order gifts (and gift cards!) using my RBC Rewards points online.
