Let's Glow Studio Fun Kit To Craft Glowing Outfit for Videos ✨ | #LetsGlowStudio


LetsGlow Studio is a creator kit of reflective fashion accessories to light up glow parties, sleepovers, or group gatherings. When I first watched videos on TikTok where kids were using LetsGlow accessories, I thought they applied special filters or used app effects. But when we got LetsGlow Studio ourselves, I found out that the idea behind the kit is simple and it is quite easy to use.  This influencer video creator kit does not require any app or filters, and can be used on any photo or video streaming platform like TikTok, Instagram or YouTube.

LetsGlow Studio kit comes with a variety of non-toxic adhesive reflective sheets, and over 65 ft of reusable reflective materials to use in your videos. There are also 3 stencils to craft some shapes for your outfit like a heart or a flower, 6 hair clips, 1 pair shutter shades glasses, reflective nails sticker sheet, double sided reflective thread rolls and reflective gloves. Alphabet letters stencil is very helpful to cut out letters you need and design your own messages. 

Everyone can create  their own custom shapes they like, just use reflective sticker sheets for your projects. 
Once your design is ready, attach the LetsGlow LED Clip to any tablet or phone camera and control the reflective LED color of your accessories using the remote control. Light up your accessories and make fun and unique videos with your friends and family! You can choose the shade of your LED color via included in the kit remote control. You can also keep one color in your video or apply the sequence of colors using a mode on your remote. 

There are lots of ideas on how to use reflective materials. For example, Teddy cut out a word LIKE using alphabet stencil and attached it to his shutter shades glasses. He also used thread rolls and a moustache in his videos . It was entertaining to make those videos, they look funny! I think we are going to shop for more adhesive reflective sheets because Teddy has many ideas in mind on how to use them in his TikTok videos. 

The holidays are just around the corner and this time of year represents the perfect occasion to prepare for upcoming festivities, buy gifts and plan gatherings. LetsGlow Studio makes a wonderful gift for both kids and adults, for everyone who loves fun activities. Even if there is no opportunity to meet and have fun in person, there are also ways to share videos and create online video messages including duet.  

LetsGlow Studio is designed for kids ages eight and up and available at Indigo, Walmart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Mastermind starting $24.99.

Celebrate Magic Bag's 30th Anniversary 🎉 - A Magical Touch Of Comfort | #MagicBag30


These days when everyone is facing stress and uncertainty in the future, taking care of yourself advances to the next level. Although you can’t control the world around you, there are ways you can take control of your health and well-being. From taking a break from chores to connecting with yourself through meditation and yoga, there are many ways to focus on self-care and improve your mental health! 

Aside from exercising or going outside for a walk, some of the best options to help you unwind can be found in the comfort of your own home. Quality self-care products can quickly put you in relaxation mode and support your physical and mental health.


When it comes to self-care, first what comes to mind is Magic Bag, a company that produces Canada’s favorite hot cold compresses to ease pain and relieve stress. For thirty years their quality products became wellness favorites and helped thousands naturally relieve pain and find comfort.

To celebrate the company's 30th anniversary, Magic Bag launched several new amazing products for the whole family to complete its collection of hot and cold compresses. 

New additions to Magic Bag's "Spa Chic" line include aromatherapy wrap, heatable slippers and aromatherapy eye & sinus mask. Tender elegant satin fabric, used in these products, makes your relaxing experience a pure luxury in addition to the aromatherapy session they provide. 

"A Touch Of Comfort" Gift Set belongs to Signature Collection and launched this year to celebrate Magic Bag's anniversary. It includes a classic Magic Bag hot/cold compress and a mug with a matching print which represents a touch of love, friendship and family.       


I think Magic Bag products make a perfect gift this holiday season for both kids and grown-ups, something for everyone and every lifestyle. Want to get rid of tension or anxiety, then try Magic Bag classic hot/cold compresses! Looking for ways to relax and detox from your daily life, then try Spa Line for stress relief and relaxation. Need some pain relief, then place a compress directly on your  sore muscle as an alternative to taking pain killer pills or creams.

Our children feel and experience stress the same as adults. They need help to deal with it in healthy ways. Stressed parents, school, sports, extracurricular activities, assignments and many other factors affect children's well-being. Magic Bag has a whole line of animal shaped compresses Warmy to provide therapeutic comfort and pain relief for little ones ages 3 and up. The children compresses look like plush toys, and this year kids get a new addition, a cute puppy called Raph The Dog. It is ready to soothe little ones and gives soft hugs. Every plush in Magic Bag's collection has a name. They look like cute children's plush toys, but they are definitely more than that!  

For each Warmy Magic Bag product sold, a percentage of the profit goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!

This year Magic Bag celebrates its 30th anniversary and deserved to be the Canadian best brand of hot and cold compresses.  Their products are natural, reusable and 100% compostable, the compresses contain organic compostable Canadian oat grain and the fabric is hand-cut and sewn. Even the packaging is designed to be eco-friendly and sustainable. 

The holiday is fast approaching, it is time to prioritize your well-being and slow down a little bit. Take a look at wellness favorites on the Magic Bag site!

Plus, in honor of its 30th anniversary, Magic Bag is giving away $3,000 in free products till November 30, 2021. There will be 30 lucky winners, so take your chance and enter the giveaway here. Good luck and Happy Holiday Season!

Green Beaver Natural Fluoride-Free Collection Toothpastes 🦷 For The Whole Family | Moms Meet

“I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.”

Last couple of years changed our attitude towards health and lifestyle. More and more people started rethinking their life, working habits, and switching to healthier lifestyles by exercising and using more natural and sustainable products. We realize that there are many local, Canadian companies that work hard to benefit our health, communities, and economy.

Launched in 2002, Green Beaver, a family company, was committed to offer only natural and safe products to their consumers. Over the years the company developed and designed the products by sourcing only natural and organic ingredients, safe for the families and for the environment. The company produces a wide range of personal care items including  soaps, face care, sunscreens, body care, antiperspirants and dental care for both kids and adults. We often buy Green Beaver products, mostly cleansers and lotions to sooth skin irritations. 

Recently we had a chance to try their natural fluoride-free toothpastes. They are enriched with calcium and antioxidant vitamin C to maintain good oral hygiene. 


Green Beaver
toothpastes offer gently clean, whitening and enamel protection with 100% natural ingredients. You can see the difference once you start using them. I like that Green Beaver products are non-GMO, free of artificial flavours and dyes, and do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate. 

There is a whole line of amazing natural flavors to choose from, honestly speaking, it was very hard to choose the favorite, we like them all. I tried the Fruity Orange and Green Apple flavors first. With Fruity Orange you feel like you have a fresh orange flavor in your mouth, so natural and fresh feeling. Same comes with Green Apple flavour, you enjoy freshness of the fruit. Then I tried Extra Whitening Mint toothpaste, I like that it whitens teeth naturally and mint gives a refreshing feeling long time after you finish brushing your teeth. 

Do not worry if you accidentally swallow your toothpaste. All Green Beaver ingredients are safe and can be swallowed, even for little ones, which often happens to toddlers who start learning how to brush their teeth!  

Safe and natural products are what we seek for our children. We use personal care items daily and do not want to expose our family members to harsh chemicals, artificial flavors and sweeteners. I am glad that Green Beaver offers child fluoride free toothpastes for little ones. 

Teddy tried the Strawberry flavour and the Bubble Gum flavour toothpastes. These are naturapeutic toothpastes designed for kids made from real strawberries and real cherries respectively. Now I understand why kids like these flavours. They contain xylitol which comes from birch extract and helps fight bacteria that cause cavities. I know how hard it is to convince children to brush their teeth but only until they get the flavour they like. Happy Teddy found his favorite flavour and hopefully this will help to prevent cavities, tooth decay, and get a praise from his dentist.  

Though Green Beaver fluoride-free toothpastes we tried do not foam as other toothpastes, I am fine with it and Teddy did not even notice that.

Green Beaver 100% natural, fluoride-free toothpastes are available to purchase online at greenbeaver.com or in store at Loblaws, Jean-Coutu, Healthy Planet,  Sobeys, IGA Rachelle-Berry, Shoppers Drug Mart, and London Drugs. Green Beaver toothpaste typically retails for $6.99–$7.99 CAD.


Save 25% off any purchase of Green Beaver toothpaste at greenbeaver.com with promo code GBSmile25, expires November 30, 2021. Plus get free shipping with orders over $35 CAD.

Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N 🏹 Is Now Open in Toronto 💎Back By Popular Demand | Yorkdale Shopping Centre

We attended Marvel Avengers exhibit in New York few years ago, and I remember, it was great experience. When Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N originally launched in Toronto back in 2020, we were very excited but it was put on hold due to known circumstances. True Marvel fans have patience to wait and now Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N is open again and will run till January 2022 at Yorkdale Shopping Centre

As holidays are fast approaching, there is no better experience than learning more about favorite Marvel characters and even getting some training to become a real Avenger. We had a chance to attend Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N this month. The exhibit is very impressive, well organized and offers great features to explore. It offers lots of information, visuals, installations and provides interactive experience. Teddy liked interactive set-ups the most, where he can learn new things about characters.

There are multiple spacious rooms dedicated to favourite Avengers characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Black Widow, The Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and more. Visitors get up-close-and-personal with original props and costumes straight from the big screen. There are multiple artifacts to explore and activities to take part in like:

  • Revel in awe at Iron Man’s "Hall of Armour" 
  • Explore Bruce Banner’s lab, providing insights into the mind of the mean, green, rage-machine called the Hulk 
  • Inspect Black Widow’s arsenal of high-tech weapons 
  • Learn about the “Super Soldier Serum” that transformed Steve Rogers in Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The First Avenger 
  • Witness Captain America’s legendary shield up-close 
  • Experience the Kingdom of Wakanda in the Black Panther exhibit And so much more!

Teddy liked to play Iron Man transformation game, ride Captain America's bike, chase ants with Antman and learn about Thanos'  infinity stones. He also tried to pick Thor's hammer but no luck! 


The venue has timed ticketed-entry system, so visitors need to book their time spot. I suggest to get tickets in advance because on holidays and weekends they are selling fast. 


All guests who book a ticket to attend between October 27-31 will receive a commemorative limited-edition Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. poster


A Marvel trivia contest will run for the entire month of October for a chance to win plush Marvel Avengers toys, action figures and an official Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. "Roots Canada" Hoodie sweatshirt.
   
In anticipation of Halloween celebration, the retail store attached to the exhibit will carry one of the largest selections of children’s Avengers costumes for Halloween throughout the month of October; including Black Panther, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, Iron Man, Falcon and Thanos. Avengers branded character kids masks will also be available for purchase on site. Teddy liked Rocket Racoon costume! 


Ticket purchase not required to enter retail store, retail store is open to the public from 10am to 8pm daily, 7pm Sundays. For more details about the immersive experience, tickets and safety protocol, visit avengersstationcanada.com.

Ways To Put Your Mind At Ease With Regard To Your Kids’ Safety In This Life


Your kids will be on your mind pretty much every single day. From the day you learn that you’re going to be a parent, their well-being becomes more important than anything else. Typically, when you think of protective parents, you think about young families with small children. The truth, however, is that you’ll be worrying about them when you’re in your nineties and they’re fully-grown humans with kids of their own! That kind of feeling never leaves you and you’ll never completely stop worrying about your child until the day you are no longer.

While you’ll never stop worrying, that doesn’t mean you cannot ease the burden a little along the way. You’ll have to get on with life and allow them to grow – you will not be able to do this if you’re an overbearing parent throughout your entire life.

You can put your mind at ease as your kids try new things and enter new stages. The fears and the thought won’t go away completely, but here are some things you can do to make the journey so much easier:

Understand That They’ll Need To Be Independent At Times

You aren’t going to be able to hold their hands and watch over them throughout their entire life. Some parents struggle with this idea. They’ve looked after them for years and aren’t comfortable with the idea of doing anything else. If you hold on for too long, however, then you’re going to cause more harm going forward. Once you understand that they’ll be better off without you when they hit a certain age, things will be easier for your mind.

Keep An Eye On Things Using Appropriate Software

While you won’t be around them all of the time, you can still keep an eye on certain things. You won’t want to be invading their privacy every single day, but it’s wise to know if they’re dealing with people that are a little suspect. If you visit familyorbit.com and view some of the services they have, you’ll learn a little more about what can be done in this regard. As a parent, you won’t want them to be speaking online with people that may cause them harm.

Think Positively About Their Life

This sounds like a basic idea, but it’s a great idea if you want to be content with things. If you develop a positive attitude, you’ll be able to see all of the good in the life that they’re about to embark on. Negative parents will always see issues and view everything they do as a hazard. A positive attitude will also be a magnetic attitude, so you’ll be unconsciously making them more positive in life before they head out on their own – this will only help them going forward.

Know That Projecting Worries Onto Will Do More Harm Than Good

This kind of follows on from the previous point in that it’s not a great way to behave overall. If you talk to them about all the worries you have, then they’ll slowly-but-surely seep into their young minds. Don’t make them hesitant before they even have a chance at life. Plenty of kids become worrisome because of their parents and they eventually turn into worrisome adults.

Top Considerations For The Incoming Newborn

Newborn

It’s one of the most exciting moments in anyone's life. The arrival of their own child. The newborn. You spend months preparing and waiting, but there’s always the few which slip through the net. The ones which come back to haunt you a little later on. Everyone is different in how they approach preparing for their baby’s arrival. People have different lives, with different responsibilities, budgets and time available. It’s why you need to look at advice objectively and try to apply it in the best way to your own situation and circumstances. It's better to be prepared. You might have thought about some of these already but the others can help you ace the newborn’s arrival. Good luck!

Prepare The Nursery

Some parents like to know what gender the baby is going to be before the birth, others like to wait. Waiting sometimes means you won’t be able to properly decorate the nursery. At least not how you’d like to. Don’t let this throw you. There’s nothing worse than having to decorate a nursery when you’ve got a newborn to look after. Get it sorted before the baby arrives. Sometimes creating a safe sleep environment for your newborn can be a little overpowering. There’s a lot to think about. Decorate it as you see fit. A crib is necessary of course. Useful fixtures and fittings include a set of draws for the baby clothes as well as a side table level with the cot, enabling you to pop a crib camera on it to keep an eye on the baby. It’s likely that you’ll have the criv in your bedroom for a month or so, but you should still spend time on the baby’s room. Is the heating working there properly? Are you happy that there isn’t any mould on the walls or that there isn’t a draft coming from cracked caulking around the windows. Get all of this out of your head and sorted before the baby arrives and you’ll absolutely thank yourself later on.

The Deep Clean

You don’t just want to clean the nursery of course. You need to do the same for the whole house. A proper, top to bottom deep clean. Especially at the moment with elements of covid still flying around. Make sure you use a good quality antibacterial cleaner everywhere you know the baby will be. It’s hard to get the timing right but you need to do it as close to the birth date as possible. This doesn’t just include the house of course. The same applies to your car and anywhere else you know the baby is going to go. Make sure you wash all of the clothes you’ve bought before letting the baby wear them. Same with all of the accessories like blankets and plush toys. If everything has been sterilised and is clean it’ll give you much better peace of mind.


Think About A Side Hustle

One thing a newborn means is more money. Money spent on bottles, clothes, toys, the list goes on. It’s nice to have a little bit of extra money coming in. Whether you’re taking paternity or maternity leave, if you get things set up before the baby you can let it roll in your free time afterwards. A side hustle is anything you do aside from your main job to bring in some money. Some will launch a business on the side, while others will offer up a skill they have. These include things like tutoring, translation, transcription or any other large amount of marketable skills. You don’t have to set up from scratch either. You can use a third party site to help you make your mark. Think about a freelance site like fiverr or upwork, or a website like etsy to sell your small creations. Monetising a hobby is always a good idea if you’re a creative person. Just think how the extra money can help out. Especially if you’re taking a bit longer off work. The flexibility of your side hustle may allow you to make some cash on your own terms.

Know Your Leave Entitlement

You might already have sorted this out, but some leave it to the last moment and let it catch them unawares. It usually happens to those who have not long started a new job because if you haven’t been there long you might not get as much entitlement, or at least paid entitlement. Grab a hold of your contract or better yet speak to someone from HR. If the business is small, speak directly to the owner instead. The key is in knowing. It allows you to properly budget and plan for the baby.

Stock Up

Getting out and about will get a little harder when you’ve got a baby. Especially if you’re on your own. So stock up as much as you can. Go to your nearest wholesaler and stock up on vests, bibs, diapers and everything else you can think of that will help you to stock up. Think about baby food and formula too. Being able to stock up will leave you with a great amount of peace of mind. You’ll know you have what you need to properly look after the baby. You can always buy items online, so you don’t have to leave the house. However, there is always room for deliveries to go missing or to turn up a day or so later. Actually having the physical items there is far more practical.

Childcare

If you have another child you might need to look into childcare options. They won’t be able to come into the hospital with you and your partner will be busy too. Speak to friends and relatives and see if they can help. The problem here is them needing to be alert at a moment's notice. This means they need to be fairly local so you can drop them off or they can get picked up. It depends on how young or old they are but ensuring there’s someone available, just in case, will make things just that little bit easier for you when it’s time.
