Next Issue CAnadaWe reviewed the Next Issue Canada service a while back, and the amount of paper that has been cut out of our household is exceptional! It also makes a great excuse to upgrade your tablet…. ; )

We are giving away 5 90-day subscriptions to Next Issue Canada so that you can catch up on your favourite magazines for August, September and October. Good luck! Canada Only, excl. Quebec. $30 value.

Summer Bucket ListSummer is just around the corner, and with the arrival of warm weather it’s time for outdoor activities with the kids and events that can last all day.  Olay and Crest want to help keep your skin hydrated and fresh and your smile shining bright through your endless summer fun!

To start your summer off right, try Olay’s newly enhanced Total Effects formula with 40 per cent more vitamins, which has the highest level of Niacinamide in an over-the-counter Olay skincare product!

Uncategorized By June 12, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , 79 Comments

American Girl GiveawaySchool is almost out, and UrbanMommies wants to make it easy-peasy for you to focus on summer reading for kids. I push the kids to read all the time, but one area where I fail is not reading enough myself. I need to set a better example. I know I should go into Chapters Indigo to buy books, but they have so many amazing gifts and decor items I always lose myself in that particular department… Well, it’s going to get even worse now…. Chapters Granville in Vancouver will be revamped, revitalized and rebranded as Indigo on June 13th, 2015!

Through these renovations, thousands of additional titles will be added to shelves, and favourite departments will be upgraded. Once open, Indigo Granville will host Vancouver’s very own American Girl specialty boutique, and an expanded and re-imagined !ndigoKids department.

1,800 square feet, baby. In the new American Girl specialty boutique alone!!  A Doll Hair Salon will also open its doors within the specialty boutique, where fans can treat their dolls to a brand new hairstyle or ear piercing.

To celebrate, we’re giving away an incredible prize….

• 1 American Girl Doll
• 1 SandsAlive Kit
• 2 National Geographic Kids Books
• 3 American Girl books

Total value: approx. $200

Indigo has also just launched their Kids summer reading guide giving parents top picks for their kids this summer. Reading with my kids is going to be a huge focus for me this summer, and I’ve learned that the key is to get them books on topics they adore. How do you keep your kids reading in the summer? Use our handy Rafflecopter form to enter to win! Canada only, excluding Quebec. Ends 6/26.
