I cannot wait for 2012; new antics, new adventures, new pictures, more of these two sweeties and new outfits!And maybe a new feature or two. 😉

Hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas, full of love happiness and relaxing. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, hope you enjoyed the relaxing and yummy Chinese take out! 😉 Thought I would share a few little Instagram snaps of our wonderful holiday weekend. Christmas with kids is truly magical, the wonder and amazement in those little eyes! We kept Christmas very small this year and plan to continue that every year, spending time together with out any distractions of daily life is really what it’s all about (and yummy food and drinks!). Now to try and get back into real life mode, I wish this relaxing and family time could go on forever.

I would wear this outfit on the daily, but of course in mini form it’s even cuter! Mini Amber Heard outfit for your little lady.


Kingston, Harlow, Chris and I wish you all the Happiest of Holidays!!

When I was first approached about reviewing this app I honestly wasn’t really into it. First, off because I don’t really write reviews (or actually never do), and secondly I thought I need another deal site/app like I need a hole in my wallet. But I thought I better have a look at the app before making any real snap judgments, and after looking I realized I would most likely tell all my (Canadian) friends about this app anyways and use it myself all the time. I decided so write a little review that way I can tell all you about it in one fail swoop. Sorry American and International friends, this is a FREE iPhone app for Canadians only (or people visiting Canada).

The iPhone app I quickly fell for is; ShopCatch, it is like all your Google sale searches and store e-newsletters all in one, but of course better. Most deal apps are either flash sites (you know the things you don’t actually need but, will most likely buy and never use because well it’s 80% off!), or coupon/deals from stores you either never shop at or have never heard of. Also, for us Canadians generally most of these deal apps never-ever have any Canadian cities or stores listed. I know I spent one evening searching and searching for an app that actually had deals I could use.

Well, ShopCatch is that app I was looking for, it is the deal app that posts shopping deals from major retailers in your favorite Canadian shopping malls. It is the app that holds all the deals to the stores you actually shop at, deals you wouldn’t know about unless you visited the physical store itself (which would always be so nice to know before you got there).Just a few of the stores that have deals updated constantly on ShopCatch (there are 150)

It is a fantastic shopping resource to have on hand, check it before heading out to the mall and learn which stores are having sales. Need to buy something specific, check ShopCatch to see who has a sale before heading out. You can search for deals by shopping mall, by your current GPS location (or by city), or create a list and follow your favorite stores to stay up to date on sales as they pop up.

You can redeem a deal using ShopCatch in three easy steps:

  1. Use the app or mobile website to locate a deal near their location.
  2. Tap on the details of the deal to pull up its promotional code or coupon.
  3. Show the promotional code or coupon to the cashier to redeem

rated as one of the top 5 shopping apps in the Apple store

I only have two wishes (I’m sure will be granted soon since ShopCatch is still really new); they include some outdoor shopping resources (Queen West, Yorkville, etc) since in Toronto we have alot of shopping outdoors (actually more outdoor shopping than malls), and even more retailers! I am pretty sure this is an app I will be using alot, I like a deal and so does my wallet.  ShopCatch will be especially helpful on boxing day, this year I plan to do a little boxing day shopping (I never usually even entertain the idea) and ShopCatch will help me make a stratigic action plan (required on that crazy shopping day).

This month, one lucky ShopCatch user will win a $2,000 gift card from Visa, or 12 $50-gift cards from retail partners. Visit ShopCatch on Facebook for contest details.

So basically Canadians get the ShopCatch app, it’s awesome.

*This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are mine alone. I only write about items or products that my family and I use or love.*

Another Mommy Style, many of you asked for more!

When it’s just me and the kids I like easy outfits that look good and I can still bust a move in. Today I will most likely be wearing a super easy outfit, the kids and I are going to be doing the last bit of holiday grocery shopping before the weekend. I hope the shoppers won’t be as ruthless and heartless as they will on Friday or Saturday. Wonder how I can work some hockey pads into my attire? I might need them.

PS. I took these pictures before I cut my hair. Which I just did this week, will hopefully share soon!
