Starting Kindergarten in Ontario

Customization is definitely going to be the key for us going into Kindergarten! With probably 25 students in a class- One teacher and a TA… things are bound to get mixed up or lost. I don't want to think about it but its a real reality... LOL On top of that, I feel like the name Ava the new Jennifer. So I will continue to push her full name haha!

One recent things is that the mask ban has been lifted. But when it comes to flying in Canada- Masks are STILL needed for the whole flight.

Parissa is changing the way we wax

Happy June everyone! 
Summer is around three weeks away. Not like I’m counting or anything! If you’re in Ontario, the temperatures are hot hot hot! It’s the perfect time to remove that unwanted hair from areas that are so bothersome. I have tried so many methods over the years (some you will find on this blog) but one that can never be disputed is Waxing! Temporary pain for long - term gain right! LOL! That rhymes. Especially if done right. Taking the hair directly from the root. You can have smooth skin for 2 - 8 weeks depending on your hair growth. 


A brand that you should totally get on your radar is Parissa
Have you heard of them yet?

Wolfhead Distillery Gift Sets


I honestly feel like Canadian products don’t get as much hype as they should. There are so many home grown products that are amazing and deserve the shine. A while back I was contacted by a Canadian alcohol brand: Wolfhead Distillery. I have never heard of them but totally wanted to give them a try. 
A) Because out of all the alcoholic drinks whisky is my absolute favourite! 
B) Something to share with my husband *hearts*
