I get asked a lot... "What is a Twitter party?" A Twitter Party is an hour long party during which a blogger (or company) will ask questions or chat on their twitter wall. By interacting and answering questions using a hashtag, you have the chance to win all sorts of amazing prizes. I've seen my friends win so many great things! Here's a few of them off the top of my head a stove, a freezer, $500 VISAs $1,000 to HomeDepot (a fan won that attending his very first party!) just read the comments Read more [...]

I was lucky enough to live in Hawaii right out of high school and stayed there for 5 years with my parents. There is something that I have to admit we are lacking in terms of Super Bowl parties up here in Canada. THE COMMERCIALS and the crazy arrays of endless food. There is no party like a US Marine Corps party for Super Bowl. I had a lot of friends in all branches of the military when I lived down there so come #SuperBowlSunday everyone found a house to gather at. All branches of the military Read more [...]

I've been wanting to try Tu-bees ever since they come across my news feed on Facebook . The idea for Tubees started in 2007 when an 11 year old girl named Nicole, just wanted to buy a horse. By July 2008 the 12 year old girl started her own company with her sister Jessica and mom Gaye putting favored honey in tubes. Otis the family dog is chief of security. For over a year I watched my friends win prizes from Tu-bees on Facebook and always wanted to try some but could never find them in my Read more [...]

This video actually made me cry. I love being Canadian and it's our right to Toboggan in Canada! Ancaster, Ontario singer Laura Cole and family friend Mike McCurlie created this great song about how they feel about the ban on tobogganing in Hamilton, Ontario. It conveys all my feelings about the situation perfectly! You haven't lived here long enough if you don't know at least 10 people who have broken something while playing in the snow during their childhood. I believe that these laws are just Read more [...]

I may not look like the type of person to have a lot of tattoos. I was an insurance broker for 12 years, a graphic designer in Hawaii, a tax recovery specialist... I've always worked in an office. Until the past 3 years when my hip displaysia and scoliosis finally caught up to me. I also suffer from Fibromyalgia, arthritis and acute tendentious.  I just couldn't do office work anymore. When I was younger I got a lot of Tattoos, 10 of them to be honest. They didn't mean too much, just pictures Read more [...]
