We have been using the Luci Aura and Luci Lux lights from MPOWERD Inc. in a variety of occasions. We can enjoy these bright solar powered lights for 6 to 12 hours after charging them in direct sunlight for 8 hours. It is fully waterproof with a IP67 waterproof rating. I like that we can easily inflate these shatterproof lights by mouth. The portable lights weigh 4 oz. and has a 150 square feet lighting area so we can use it in a variety of situations such as boating, camping, barbequing, as night lights, at pool parties or special occasions, entertainment, and more.

Eating our fruits and vegetables are very important. With little ones serving up the fruits and vegetables in different ways encourage them to try it, and enjoy it. We tried a variety of Opadipity Greek Yogurt Dips by Litehouse Foods, which are the perfect snacks with low-calorie dips made with natural ingredients using zero preservatives, MSG or gluten. These dips are wonderful with a variety of vegetables.

Recently, I mentioned the new Netflix Original Project Mc2 that my children enjoy watching. I like it when shows encourage children to think creatively and teach them that smart is cool! I am partnering with MGA Entertainment Canada to giveaway one of their #SnowKissed Bratz doll and a Project Mc2 doll valued at $70.
Celebrating a loved one’s birthday has been a family tradition. Growing up, my mom used to make our birthdays feel really special by getting a cake and having different types of short-eats and inviting family and friends. Even as I grow older my family makes it a special day for me. I am kept occupied and reminded many times during the day that it is my birthday. While I don't do any chores for the day, I am showered with handmade cards, notes and gifts. This is simply a time to count my blessings.

In my previous back to school post, I mentioned SmartSaver.org, a company that helps families to access the free money for their children's future education provided through the Canada Learning Bond. Planting the Dream of learning in our children is very important. This starts from a young age, so children learn how important lifelong learning is. When children know that their parents and relatives think learning is important it lays a positive psychological and financial foundation for children to be motivated to continue their education.

As I am on my feet a lot, having comfy shoes are important to me. The quality of shoes, and how long they last determines if I will buy the brand again. Due to my previous experience of how long New Balance shoes last with everyday active use, I trust the brand. Recently, I got a pair of WX711 Heathered Cush+ New Balance shoes to use and I have been enjoying wearing them for walking and training. I like this pair because its forefoot flex grooves allow me to move freely.
