MY REVIEW
There's a new show on Disney Junior and my five year old was super excited to see our delivery guy bring the DVD of the show T.O.T.S! A show filled with adventure, Pip and Freddy are on a mission to deliver cute and cuddly baby animals for families to enjoy and boy do they go just about to lots of places to help deliver these little cuddly fur babies to their new home.

This was such a cute show that my five year old loved. It even caught the eye of my 6 month old great nephew who I watch a couple times a week. He loves the bright colors and the catchy tunes with the 6 music videos that are included. This is such an adorable show and a show I think your little ones will love.

Out in stores on August 13th, you can enjoy T.O.T.S. at home whenever your little one wants! If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter you might have seen when we shared a craft and a recipe that you and your littles can do together while watching the show. We're sharing them both here as well, just click the buttons below to get to each one!

 MY REVIEW
My family and I were really excited when we were sent both the class of Disney's Aladdin and the live action remake. We are huge fans of not only the movie, but of the actor, Will Smith. Going in, I was a bit hesitant because how can anyone replace the original Genie, the late Robin Williams, but let me tell you, Will Smith did a fantastic job on playing Genie. Not only did Will Smith make this character his own with bringing in some of his personality that we all love to the character of Genie, but also played it so well that I believe Robin William would be proud to see it done in such a way that kept us all entertained and singing along to the classic song, "You Ain't Never Had A Friend Like Me."

Now moving on to the other characters in this story, I have to say we were all quite impressed by the actors who played Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. Not only did they capture almost every aspect of the classic movie, Aladdin, which could be hard to do considering it was an animation, but they added in a few twists that wasn't in the original movie and I have to say, we really enjoyed this film. Filled with bright and beautiful colours along with catchy songs that had us all singing them by the end of the movie, the live action movie of Aladdin definitely impressed my entire family and we can't wait to watch it again.

Teaming up with Disney Canada, we're excited to offer one of our Canadian readers a chance at winning not only the live action version of Aladdin, but the classic animation as well. All you need to do is comment below who your favorite character in the movie is and that's it!

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks Book Review


Title: Pumpkinheads
By: Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks
Publisher: First Second
Publication Date: August 27, 2019
Pages: 224

Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.
But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.

Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .

What if their last shift was an adventure?


MY REVIEW
I am a huge fan of Rainbow Rowell. Her work speaks for itself with amazing books like Fangirl and Eleanor & Park, just to name a couple. When I got the opportunity to read Pumpkinheads I was super excited. Not only was this a beautifully illustrated book, Faith Erin Hicks  did an amazing job with the graphics, but the story line just warmed my heart right up. This was a quick read, but boy did I enjoy every bit of it. 

Both Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends, meaning, they work together during the Fall at a local Pumpkin Patch that they both absolutely love. As they are getting ready to prepare for their senior year in high school and their last year working at the Pumpkin Patch, Deja is finally going to help her best friend get the girl of his dreams. The problem is, everywhere they look, they end up missing her by just a few minutes. As they work their way throughout the entire pumpkin patch to find the girl of Josiah's dreams, they realize that they need to savor and enjoy every bit of time they have together because who knows when they'll hangout again. 

Filled with beautifully illustrated pictures and a story that will definitely have you smiling from eat to ear, Pumpkinheads is a delightful quick read that will have you ready to enjoying all of the Fall things. If you're looking for a great book to read this fall, Pumpkinheads should definitely be on your list.


MEET THE AUTHORS
Rainbow Rowell, along with illustrator Faith Erin Hicks, will be in Vancouver on November 10th for a ticketed public event. Details aren't confirmed just yet, but please stay tuned by keeping an eye out on Raincoast Books social media pages, you can find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Illuminating Body Lotion and 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Body Lotion Review


I'm always on the look out for body lotion that helps hydrate my skin without it being greasy and helps hydrate my skin without breaking the bank. The last month or so I've been using Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Illuminating Body Lotion and 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Body Lotion. I have to say I'm pretty impressed. Not only does this lotion feel smooth going on, I don't feel I put on too much and I absolutely love the smell of both. 



The 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Body Lotion was the first one that I tried out. I would use it in the mornings while getting ready for the day and it went on really smooth. By using the lotion daily it provides all the best parts of the coconut and exotic Acacia Senegal. The luxurious blend of 100% Virgin Coconut Oil, Coconut Milk and Coconut water moisturize and soften. Provides everyday hydration for all skin types, even skin that only requires a drop of moisture. I could tell a huge difference in my skin after using this in just a few days and my husband noticed how much smoother my skin felt as well.

After a couple of weeks of using the daily hydration body lotion I begin to use the Illuminating Body Lotion. It was perfect to use at night after getting out of the shower and did wonders for my feet, keeping them soft and smooth. Concentrating on dull and dry areas, the Coconut and Hibiscus Illuminating Body Lotion is a non-greasy formula which provides a burst of hydration to make your skin soft, smooth and radiant! It is a hydrating body care treatment made from natural ingredients making it perfect for dry, sensitive skin. This skin care treatment from Shea Moisture is made from a special lightweight formula that absorbs easily into the skin and brightens and evens skin tone while providing deep moisturization.

I have been using both lotions for over a month now and I am still impressed with how soft and smooth my skin feels. I'm excited to continue to use both lotions as Fall and Winter is approaching. Since we usually have harsh winters, finding a lotion that's affordable, non-greasy and keeps my skin smooth and hydrated is amazing.

For more information about the above lotions and other products from Shea Moisture be sure to head to their website!

MY REVIEW
My husband is obsessed with anything related to space. He listens to podcasts all day at work about space, time and just science as a whole. So as soon as I saw this book, I knew he would be overjoyed. He ended up reading it to our son every night for a week. We even got to bring this book to the Toronto Science Centre during the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Super exciting trip! My sister read ‘Super Space’ on the drive up! We got a picture with her holding it at the science centre, she was in love too. 



We ended up letting her take it home to finish reading. It is an interactive book that really allows the reader to sit back and enjoy the pure facts of life in space. We got it a week or so before we went to the Science Center and it certainly got us pumped up to go. I love that my 12-year-old sister showed so much interest in it as well as my 5 month old baby and 21 year old husband. Definitely a book for all ages.
