Made from Earth Organic Vitamin C Moisturizer #organic

Using great skin care products makes you feel great for sure. Spring is already here and our skin needs something extra to shine and get a healthy glow. The facial Vitamin C Moisturizer from Made from Earth, contains the highest possible concentration of Vitamin C, necessary to make our skin look young and smooth. This moisturizer can be described in one word: “rich”. It brings such an abundance of care – organic ingredients like coconut oil to effectively moisturize dry skin, evening prime rose oil to sooth dry and itchy skin and a combination of MSM and Vitamin C to boost collagen production and brighten the skin and much more. It is pretty thick to call it a moisturizer but I do not mind to use it on a daily basis.

The Vitamin C Moisturizer was designed to boost collagen production, moisturize, fight fine lines and brighten your skin all in one. The Vitamin C Moisturizer makes your skin smooth and soft, I feel like I use the best and meticulously picked combination of ingredients, and not just a moisturizer that sits on your skin and then you wash it away.

Earth Day Inspired Yoga Practice

To celebrate the Earth Day we are happy to bring this infographic on Yoga For Healthy Hips. Our hips are made up of 17 muscles to provide stability and balance, and give us range of motion for almost all our daily activities. Not taking care of your hips can be detrimental to your health and create problems such as poor balance, lower back pain, misalignment in lumbar spine, and limited range of motion in the hips and lower back, to name a few. But fear not!

Incorporating 10 simple exercises into your daily routine can greatly reduce your risk of having hip problems. Start with happy baby pose. To begin, lie on your back on a mat and pull your knees to your chest. Place your hands on the outside of your feet, opening your knees wider than your torso. Press your feet into your hands and pull down. Hold this pose for 30 seconds, breathing deeply.

YogaTree

If you find these exercises a little bit challenging and need some guidance, for Toronto folks I highly recommend Studio Blue Yoga that offering a variety of warm yoga classes, suitable for all levels. Another studio I really like is Yoga Tree with five comfortable locations across the GTA with luxury rooms and highly-trained instructors. Happy Earth Day!

Teddy Starring in The Hockey Hero - Personalized Children's Book by KD Novelties #personalizedbook

Personalized children books are a wonderful way to get kids into reading and make them feel special. From the moment they see their names in the book, children realize that they can become not only their favorite characters, but unique and special ones themselves.

For our kid hockey is always around, the favorite Canadian sport where even children’s games bring so much excitement and involvement not only among players but viewers too. Teddy started playing his own hockey using lego brick as a puck since he started walking. He also saw many games of his cousins playing in AAA and joined multiple sports program last year.

Hockey Book

Teddy started reading more since joining the preschool, he is excited to see how letters become meaningful words. The personalized book Hockey from KD Novelties took all Teddy’s attention right away. He was curious and excited to see his name and last name in the book realizing it is very special and serious book about him. When I ask what this book is about, he says: “It is about me and hockey”. Our story (with some personalization like hockey team, child friends, city the hockey hero is from) is about Teddy as young and inexperienced but promising forward from Toronto who is invited to join Toronto Maple Leafs Team and save the game. Pretty fascinating story for five year old boy! Teddy’s friends are part of this amazing story too what makes the book stand out of others because of having more real characters than any other books we own.

Teddy is very proud to have a book about him. He starts questioning if he can be a forward of the hockey team, why not? It is written in the hockey book and Teddy brings real help to the team.

Teddy Reading Hockey Book

Form time to time Teddy re-reads this KD Novelties book, for some difficult sentences he ask for help, of course. But how exciting to read it if it is all about you. I like the book has a hard cover and pictures reflecting real-life situations like hockey gear and a hockey field.

Teddy Hockey Book

A personalized book is the perfect gift for any special occasion like birthdays or holidays. KD Novelties offers a wide selection of educational personalized products (books,DVDs, music Cds) at very affordable prices. Check them out, from Disney themed books to Sports and popular TV Shows music CDs there is something for every kid.

Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom Movie in Theatres Now #MonkeyKingdom

Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom opens today in theatres, great addition to all Disneynature movies intended to bring the most amazing experience on planet earth to a big screen. Last week we had a chance to join advance screening of Monkey Kingdom in Toronto. Filmed on the South Asian island of Sri Lanka with beautiful nature scenes, the story is about macaque monkeys living among ancient civilization ruins.

Disneynature Monkey Kingdom

I would never have thought that macaque society has complex class structure reflecting how each monkey has to behave, what to eat and where to sleep. There is such a strict division between classes, that even little baby monkeys know what status each monkey has. Who to groom and how is very important. While we may consider monkeys living free surrounded by beautiful rich rainforests, the reality they have to fight for their food and opportunity to give the best to their kids same as we are.

Following the adventures of Maya, who has low social rank and has to be resourceful to feed herself and her newborn son every single day. Since she does not have any opportunity to taste delicious fruits on high branches of the fig tree, Maya needs to explore the near-by area and find food for her son even if it is dangerous like diving into the pond surrounded by predators or eat a birthday cake.

Disneynature Monkey Kingdom

Even in Monkey Kingdom, social status can change if you are smart and eager to learn. When “ex-boyfriend” achieves the alpha status in macaque monkey hierarchy for being strong to fight rival tribes and building good relationship with other monkeys, Maya's world changes for better.

Overall, it is an amazing movie to watch with real animals in their natural environment. The diversity of wildlife found in Sri Lanka is impressive, from the mongooses and sloth bears to lizards and leopards. The scene of flying termites after monsoon season, (a phenomenon happens only one day a year) is one of the best moments of the movie.

See Monkey Kingdom opening week (April 17-23), and Disneynature will make a donation in your honor to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.

The donations resulting from Canadians who purchased tickets during opening week of previous Disneynature titles have yielded the following results:
  • "Earth" - over 350,000 trees planted in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest 
  • "Oceans" - 4,500 acres of marine protected area established in The Bahamas 
  • "African Cats" - 6,000 acres of savanna protected in Kenya • 
  • "Chimpanzee" - nearly 8,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat protected

WearMax Scratch Concealer to “Photoshop” Your Hardwood Floors #wearmaxscratch


Teddy making scratches

Having hardwood floors is a huge advantage, it makes house look warm, cozy and beautiful. While we take care of our floors, scratches appear on different areas thanks to children, pets and some little accidents happening from time to time. Kids can easily make any floor look like a disaster with their lovely toys. Scratches and dimples can be irritating considering how much you spent on getting hardwood floors installed.

We tried to find a good hardwood concealer for a long time but they are pretty expensive and require professional help. I was lucky to come across WearMax Scratch Concealer. It is like fast and easy to use “photoshop” for hardwood floors, very effective to fix annoying white scratches.

WearMax Scratch Concealer Before

Invented by WEARMAX, WearMax Scratch Concealer is a patent pending brand new product that will revolutionize the hardwood flooring industry. Simply apply WearMax Scratch Concealer on scratches using a soft cloth and wipe until all excess is removed. After applying the cured area should be exposed to the light source for about 4 hours or more.

WearMax Scratch Concealer After

The fixed areas look amazing, smooth and like new ones. I consider it a little bit addictive because now I try to make all my floors look smooth and meticulously look around to find any little scratch to conceal. Just to make sure anywhere I glance down on the floor, I can see a smooth and scratch-free area.

WearMax Scratch Concealer bottle is not big, only 2 oz but can serve for longer time because this product permanently seal the scratches and it will not be washed away. Forget about fixed scratches, now we keep WearMax Scratch Concealer for future ones, our boy always ready to make some for us.

For more information about the product please visit WearMax web site.

Walt Disney Studios & Disney Parks Team up to Present Exclusive Sneak Peek of TOMORROWLAND Movie & Special Exhibit

Disney Tomorrowland

Walt Disney Studios announced this month an unprecedented collaboration between the Studio, Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort to offer park guests a 12-minute sneak peek of Disney’s upcoming thrilling, mystery-adventure film, "Tomorrowland," opening in theatres on May 22. Lucky guests will also enjoy an impressive exhibit that features the making of the movie with props, concept artwork and photos from the filming of the movie plus exclusive images from the Disney Archives. The sneak peek and exhibit will open April 17 in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park and on April 18 in Future World at Epcot and will be available to the public for a limited time. Would be great to join the exhibit if only we were a little bit close to that location.

The must-see event marks the first time that a sneak peek has been offered at Epcot in Walt Disney World and the first time Walt Disney Studios has teamed up with both parks to showcase an upcoming Disney film with footage and an in-depth look at the making of the film. Sure to spark the imagination and curiosity of all, the special exhibit details the process of bringing director Brad Bird’s vision to life and will show how filmmakers created the world of Tomorrowland, along with archival images of iconic Disneyland attractions featured in the movie.


In the movie, the premise that the futuristic city of Tomorrowland could actually exist pays homage to Walt Disney’s vision for both Tomorrowland at Disneyland Resort and Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort where ever-evolving technologies are showcased along with ideas to make the world a better place for all.

Commenting on the exclusive "Tomorrowland" sneak peek event, Brad Bird, the film’s two-time Oscar winning director, says, “We are excited that park guests will be the first to get an extended look at ‘Tomorrowland’ in the part of Disneyland that inspired the film. Tomorrowland is the one section of the park that Walt Disney himself designed to be tied inexorably to constant change. After all, the future is always in motion, continually shifting as humankind’s choices of the present remake the world ahead of us. ‘Tomorrowland’ is a state of mind. My hope is that the exhibit will convey some of the magic that went into bringing this land… and this movie, to life.”

"Tomorrowland," a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award winner George Clooney, tells the story of former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, who are bound by a shared destiny and embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as "Tomorrowland." I saw a short piece from "Tomorrowland", it was so amazing that I even forgot that I was watching just a sneak peek. 

What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever. From a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, "Tomorrowland" promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of. The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.

We are looking forward to the movie ready to hit theatres starting May 22!

Captain America Outfit from Costume SuperCentre, Join the Team and Become Superhero

Captain America Costume
Kids love being heroes, playing their favorite characters to save planet from destruction and fight against villains. After watching Winter Soldier we decided that getting Captain America costume will be our next move to superhero world.

The selection of Captain America costumes is impressive, reflecting the multiple adventures of this superhero through generations. And we put our eye on Captain America Retro Muscle Child Costume for Teddy. It was the one we liked the most for being the classical Captain America superhero outfit plus with upcoming this spring Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, we are ready to join global adventures of the strongest and fastest. The Captain America costume is a fun and fantastic way for Teddy to dress-up like his hero, Steve Rogers, for any special day.

Captain America kid Captain America Teddy

This time we decided to order a costume a little bit bigger so that we can wear it to various events at school and parties for longer period of time. We can also add extra clothing under the costume to keep our little boy warm, very helpful if Teddy wants to play outside, during ice-skating or outdoor parties (our Canadian weather can be frigid by the way).

Captain America jump Captain America Ted

The costume we received consists of a printed jumpsuit and a fabric mask. The top has fiber filling that puffs out the chest and arms to show hero’s spectacular muscles what seems pretty cool for our slim boy. The printed jumpsuit is designed to reflect famous red, white and blue colors of the classic Captain America disguise, complete with the stars and stripes. The costume has blue top and blue pants to follow original Captain America outfit. I like that the mask came made of fabric (not plastic) with a letter “A” on forehead. Teddy can wear it without complaining; it is soft and fits his head perfectly. The arms and legs have brown finishing to look like gloves and boots. Now we just need to get Captain America shield to get the final look and Teddy is ready to team up with the rest of the Avengers to save the Earth.

Avengers

Last month our boy was invited to Superhero Birthday Party, kids and adults had such a good time celebrating. Becoming superheroes was so exciting for everyone.

Being a Captain America fan, Teddy is looking forward to see Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” coming out to the big screen May 1, 2015. It is time to dress-up as favorite superhero, follow epic adventures and stop the terrifying technological villain.

Captain America costume party Captain America

Special thanks to Walt Disney Studios Canada for providing Captain America image used in this post & an invitation to Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” screening where Teddy is going to wear this costume.

Protect Your Bathroom from Leakage with Secure-A-Tank #FixTheGap

I would never have thought that the gap between the toilet tank and wall in a bathroom can cause serious water leakage. If you have active kid like ours who always run around, play, can go to the washroom whenever you go, shake, touch and try to move everything on his way, then you need to get the special bathroom tank “gadget” called Secure A Tank. This device, designed by professional plumber, prevents leaks and damage caused by the gap between the toilet tank and wall. Any pressure against the tank as a result of leaning back, kids having fun around or uncle Tod who gained some pounds since last visit, can cause the gaskets deformation. Even a little hole in the gasket (that keeps water from leaking) can lead to a significant, but not very noticeable right away, water leakage.

Secure-A-Tank

Secure A Tank set contains toilet tank spacer sets which are enough for two tanks to secure against the wall. This product is pretty easy to use; the only challenging part of the installation is cutting the pieces (two of them) to the right extent to fit the size the gap in your washroom. These plastic parts along with a hook perfectly secure a tank against the wall for no more unwanted toilet movements.

I do not know much about plumbing but always listen to professional advice if it makes my life secure and avoid “washroom” surprises from damaged floors to unnecessary bills. Secure A Tank does not need any special knowledge or practice before installation.

From aesthetic point of view, Secure A Tank spacer set looks absolutely invisible comparing it to a wooden brick or a piece of foam plastic. This product is affordable, around $10 on Amazon.com and available at major hardware retailers across US.

Homeowners, landlords, families with young kids, hotels, spas and resorts definitely find the practical use for Secure A Tank product. For more information and other amazing household products, please check company web site.

Saving for a Child’s Postgraduate Education in Canada

Spring is on the way and the weather is becoming warmer and nicer. Schools and students are preparing for exams, graduation, proms and parties. When we sent Teddy last year to Junior Kindergarten, we were quite emotional to realize how fast kids grow. Only yesterday our boy was a little baby and now he reads, writes and wants to learn more about this world. Our children grow fast, and in a blink of time they are becoming adults, valuable members of our society ready to bring and contribute the best they have.

Education

I have probably come to the topic of education already, as it’s circulated across the media and it crosses every parents mind when they have a new baby. It’s all about Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), and putting aside funds for when our children graduate high school. Our kids all have special talents and unique skills and we want them to follow their passions. The inability to fund their education can stop them from reaching their full potential.

School

It would be amazing if our children could do what they love for a living, while having the desire to learn. Post-secondary education is not the cheapest and every year it becomes more and more expensive. As parents we have to do everything to make sure we have the necessary funds for our children's post-secondary education.

Education truly is the greatest gift we can give to our kids. The first step to saving for your children’s future education is to choose a Registered Education Savings Plan Provider. There are many banks and multiple financial institutions to choose from and some of these services can charge high fees (Canadians pay the highest investment management fee in the world – 2.42%). That means your hard earned money saved for your children’s education goes in the pocket of the advisor managing the money. If you’re interested in learning more about RESPs and paying less in fees, it is time to check Wealthsimple.

Wealthsimple
