Our Place to Shop For Christmas Dec20

Our Place to Shop For Christmas

By Katie Rose For Poppy, we grabbed a Pomsies, which is a wearable Pom-Pom cat. It’s so cute and interactive when you press its nose. In fact, Aubrey has also been playing with it and they both love pretending it’s a real cat. We ended up doing a lot of our Christmas shopping at Canadian Tire this year. Their toy selection is one of the best in the city. And, as always, we grabbed a few things for ourselves – this time it was some adorable home décor, which many of you noticed. Now, to wait for the next few weeks until we can see their faces when they open up the rest. I seriously LOVE Christmas. What are some of your little one’s must-have toys this year? Follow #CTChristmas on Instagram to see more of this year’s hottest toys. Thank you Canadian Tire for supporting our family by sponsoring this post.

Keeping Our Communities Safe with Allstate Canada Dec15

Keeping Our Communities Safe with Allstate Canada

By Katie Rose Allstate Canada is starting something new this year, which is why I am so pumped to work with them on this program – #AllstateTakesAction. They have a call for submissions out for Canadians across the country to submit ideas and safety issues that you would like to see fixed in your own community. They know how important a safe community is, especially when it comes to driving and they are dedicated to helping make our communities safer. Next year, they will take all of those submissions and a winner will be selected. Allstate Canada will work with the winning community to implement a solution. When large companies actively take part and give back like this, it seriously warms my heart, especially around the holidays. Our communities matter and it’s great to see big companies agreeing and being proactive. If you would like to submit an idea for your community, please head to here: http://bit.ly/2Phnn5Y Thanks to Allstate for supporting our family by sponsoring this post.
