On The Hunt For The Ultimate Holiday Movie! (Giveaway) #STREAMINTO2015

Even though we're all still excited about Halloween tomorrow, I'm pretty excited about the upcoming holiday season. I love getting ready for the Holidays with my family with lots of Christmas music, decorating our house and watching lots  of Christmas movies. As many of you know, my family and I absolutely love watching movies together. We love being able to pick out a movie that all of us can enjoy together and snuggle up on the couch and hangout watching the movie with treats to snack on.
My family and I have been challenged by Staples Canada to #Streaminto2015 by watching as many holiday movies as possible and crown our, "Ultimate Holiday Movie," over the next 30 days. This is definitely going to be a tough challenge for us because we have so many favorites that we love and watch faithfully every year.

To help us get started with our challenge, we were sent a Roku 3 Streaming Media Player to watch our movies on along with some treats to enjoy as well. I love the Roku 3, it not only is very easy to use and navigate, but it also has Netflix for us to stream our movies on along with a few free apps, like, Facebook, Angry Birds game, Vevo, Crackle and you can easily download other apps as well.

We've been making a list on what movies we're going to be watching and below are a few family favorites:

A Christmas Story
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Frosty The Snowman
Miracle On 34th Street
Jack Frost
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
White Christmas
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Home Alone

Those are just a few that come to mind. There are lots of other movies we'll be watching the month of November. Myself along with a few other Canadian bloggers will be sharing the movies we'll be watching throughout this challange and you can follow along too by using the hashtag #StreamInto2015 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Just Us Girls and Staples would love to hear some of your favorite Holiday movies as well, so we're offering two of our Canadian readers a chance to win their very own Roku 3 Streaming Media Player so you can enjoy streaming holiday movies as well. To enter, leave a comment letting us know your favorite Holiday movie.

Multiple Ways To Use Receiving Blankets #DisneyBabyCA

It's been almost three months since I laid eyes on my little girl. Time has flew by and I can't believe she'll be three months this week. I'm happy to say that we have worked out a system that works very well for our family to where everyone is happy and use to this new crazy schedule.

With both of my kids being in after school activities and with all of the family gatherings that have been happening this last month, I have to make sure that I have everything that I need in my diaper bag for whatever reason.

One of my go to items is our receiving blanket. You can use these things for just about anything. My favorite thing to use them for would be as a burp cloth for our little girl, just in case she spits up. There are a number of different ways you can use a receiving blanket and Disney Baby has compiled a list for different ways you can use receiving blankets:

USE #1: Nursing cover
Receiving blankets are both lightweight and easy to fold up and store, they make excellent nursing covers. Tie a knot in one corner and rest it over baby’s head to help keep the blanket in place. 

USE #2: Burp cloth
This is what I use my receiving blanket the most for. Throw a receiving blanket over your shoulder to wipe your baby’s face and protect your clothes from post-feeding spit up.

USE #3: Coverlet
If your baby is cold, receiving blankets are the perfect way to add a quick layer. They can also be used to soothe your little one, as something to hold, snuggle or chew.

USE #4: Changing mat
Receiving blankets make great changing mats, especially when you’re out in public. Simply fold the blanket and lay it down on a flat surface to create a soft, easy-to-clean changing station.

USE#5: Play mat
Lay a blanket on the ground to give baby a clean surface to play on. If your little one is playing with lots of toys, keeping them on the receiving blanket also helps to make clean up a breeze: just gather the corners together to pick everything up at once!

USE #6: Sunshade

Drape a receiving blanket over the front of your stroller to create instant shade, or block the sun from your car by tucking one into the top of the window. In both cases, the blanket will cut the glare and help keep baby nice and cool. 

What other ways do you use a receiving blanket?

A Pumpkin Carving Party Starring @KFC_Canada's #SweetChiliCrunch

The week before Halloween, the hubby and I always have our nieces and nephews over and host a Pumpkin Carving Party. It's a time to get together with our family to laugh, chat and make lots of memories for both the kids and adults.

This year was no different, we usually have everyone over for dinner and after everyone is good and full, we then start carving our pumpkins. This year for dinner we had the opportunity to try out KFC's new Sweet Chili Crunch Chicken.

We decided to get 18 pieces of the new Sweet Chili Crunch so that everyone can taste the new chicken and also grabbed two 18 pieces of original chicken for those that don't like spicy food along with popcorn chicken for the little ones and lots of sides for everyone to enjoy that included, fries, mash potatoes, coleslaw and macaroni salad. We had a dinner party of 17 people, so this was plenty of food for everyone and we even had some left overs that the hubby took for lunch.

The Sweet Chili Crunch was absolutely delicious. Not only does this chicken have a great crunch to it, but it gives you a perfectly blended amount of both sweet and spice. When you first bite into it you definitely taste the sweetness of it. Once you start to chew and swallow that first bite, you then get the kick of the chili, which was great, especially since most of our family loves spicy food. Be sure to have a napkin handy, they are pretty sticky, but definitely worth getting messy for!

For as long as I can remember, KFC has always been a family friendly restaurant that I remember enjoying with my family when I was younger. Their chicken is still one of my all time favorites, besides my late grandmother's chicken, so this definitely brought back memories and I'm glad that KFC is still bringing families together with their delicious family friendly meals. I love how they allow you to have a variety bucket so that everyone can enjoy their favorite type of chicken from KFC.

Be sure to head to KFC and grab a bucket of their Sweet Chili Crunch Chicken before this limited edition is off the menus, November 23rd. Right now you can enjoy a nine piece with fries for only $19.99. You can also enjoy their variety buckets starting at $19.99 as well, so you can mix it up if you have family members who don't like spicy food.

After our delicious dinner was over. We cleaned up and started carving some pumpkins, the kids had a blast and their pumpkins turned out pretty awesome.

Stay Clean This Fall With @KandooKids (Giveaway)

Now that the cold weather is here and school is back in session, one of the big things us parents have to prepare for is the cold and flu season. With this being one of the biggest times of the year where our little ones are getting sick back to back, we have to try our best to make sure we can do our part at home to help prevent them from getting sick and to have everything they need in case they do come home with a cold.

I know I've already stocked up with not only medicine to make sure I'm prepared, but also hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes to wipe door knobs and also Kandoo hand soap and body wash. I've made sure that our bathroom stays stocked so the kiddos have what they need to stay fresh and clean and have fun too.

Just Us Girls wants to make sure that you are prepared this Fall and Winter too, so we're giving away the entire Kandoo line to one lucky Canadian reader. All you have to do is let us know how you prepare for the Cold and Flu season.

Thirsty Thursday: Nutty Coconut Coffee w/ Gay Lea Coconut Whipped Cream (Review & Giveaway)

One of the best parts of Fall has to be all the warm and delicious drinks we get to snuggle up with on the couch or outside on your front porch on a beautiful Fall day. A perfect Fall day to me is reading a book under my zebra print snuggie while sipping on a warm drink.

I had the opportunity to try the new Gay Lea Real Coconut Whipped Cream. This just kicked whip cream up a notch. This delicious creamy flavorful whipped cream gives your ordinary coffee a boost. It definitely has a coconut taste that will bring your ordinary whipped cream to shame. The taste isn't over powering, it's just the right amount of coconut flavor.

Gay Lea Real Coconut Whipped Cream is non dairy and lactose free, so even those of you that are vegan or lactose intolerance can enjoy the delicious Coconut Whipped Cream. It's cholesterol free and only contains 13% fat. This is definitely a more healthier choice than some of the other whipped creams out there.

Not only would this be a great add to your pumpkin latte and hot chocolate, but it also tastes delicious served with fruit and would be great on pumpkin and pecan pie. I was able to bring a couple to our Thanksgiving dinner at my in laws and everyone loved it on their pumpkin pie bites that I brought along as well. My mother in law absolutely loves coconut, so this was a perfect add to her pumpkin pie.

This is why this week's Thirsty Thursday is Nutty Coconut Coffee. I got the recipe over on the Gay Lea website and altered it a bit adding coconut milk to give my coffee an even more coconut taste. You can get the new Coconut Whipped Cream at your local Sobey's, No Frills, Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore retailing between $2.99 - $3.49.

Nutty Coconut Coffee
2C  Freshly Brewed Dark Roast Coffee
2oz Cocnut Milk
2oz Bailey's Hazelnut Flavour
Gay Lea Real Coconut Whipped Cream
Dash of Cinnamon
Chocolate Syrup (optional)

Make coffee. Add in the coconut milk and Bailey's Hazelnut. Pour into two mugs and top with a generous amount of Real Coconut Whipped Cream, a dash of cinnamon and chocolate syrup. Drink and enjoy!

Gay Lea is teaming up with Just Us Girls to give one of our Canadian readers a chance to win a Gay Lea prize pack that includes 4 dessert plates, 4 dessert forks, 4 napkins, 4 napkin rings, a pie server, and two vouchers for Gay Lea Coconut Whipped Cream!

GoGo squeeZ, Perfect For After School Snacks & Lunch! (Review & Giveaway)

We're going into month three of being back in school and I'm still pretty excited on what I make for the kids lunches. With the help of social media sites, there are tons of ideas on how to make lunch for your kids more exciting and healthy. Not only awesome ideas for lunches, but after school snacks too.

My kids are pretty picky and only eat certain foods, so when I got the opportunity to try the entire line from GoGo squeeZ, I was pretty excited. GoGo squeeZ is fruit applesauce in a pouch that has a resealable cap. Not only are their products made with 100% real fruit, but they're made natural with no preservatives, are gluten and dairy free and have no artificial flavors added. They come in eight different flavors and my kids enjoyed trying every single one of them.

Apple Apple
Apple Peach
Apple Banana
Apple Mango
Apple Berries
Apple Strawberry
Apple Grape (New!)
Apple Pear (New!)

One of the things I love about GoGo squeeZ is that these fruit pouches are not only delicious, but they are very convenient and a healthy snack for my kids. You can take them with you anywhere and are perfect when you're on the go. They're a perfect add for the kids lunch and for an after school snack.

As a parent with little ones that get hungry quickly while being out, snacks that are mess free and easy to take with you are great to have. I love having GoGo squeeZ handy when we're traveling a far distance or even when we're headed to an appointment. I also love that they have a resealable cap, so if your kids don't finish they're snack, they can screw the top back on and have it for later. This is a perfect way not to waste the snacks kids eat.

With Halloween coming up next week, these would be a great add to give to the Trick OR Treaters that will be coming to your door. Their parents will thank you with these healthy and fun treats!

Mr. Peabody and Sherman Blu-ray/DVD Combo Review #MrPeabody

Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine - The WABAC - to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.

My kids were really excited when we got a chance to watch Mr. Peabody and Sherman.  They heard so much about the movie from a couple friends. So when they saw it laying on the table, they screamed with joy.

This was such a great family movie for us all to sit down and watch together. Filled with lots of adventure and humor, this was a movie that we all enjoyed and loved. I loved how they went back in time and how they came in contact with other characters from different time periods. I also love how there was adult humor that my husband and I got. When we weren't laughing during the movie it was completely quiet in the house as every single one of us was so into the movie.

We've watched it twice now and I'm guessing we will be watching it a few more times, so I'm glad this is in our movie collection. If you're looking for a new family movie to enjoy, this is definitely it. Mr. Peabody and Sherman is now out on both blu-ray and DVD and would be a great gift to any kid since the holidays are right around the corner. Be sure to enter our giveaway HERE for a chance at winning your own copy!

Book Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan (@kassmorganbooks & @The100)

Title: The 100
By: Kass Morgan
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: March 18, 2014
ISBN: 9780316234498
Pages: 336

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries -- until now.
Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents -- considered expendable by society -- are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission.
CLARKE was arrested for treason, though she's haunted by the memory of what she really did. WELLS, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves -- but will she ever forgive him? Reckless BELLAMY fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only pair of siblings in the universe. And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.
Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.

The 100 is a futuristic story based in a time 300 years post-apocalyptic earth on a space station type of town hovering over earth. We know the earth was soaked in radiation during "The Cataclysm", but little information is given as to what was the cause. You are given pieces of information at a time through the course of several of the main character's (Wells, Clarke, Bellamy and Glass) points of view.

This story is geared toward young adult readers, so the pieces were pretty easy for me to put together. I wasn't taken off guard by any of the twists or turns…but a younger reader would easily be. I cannot even think of anything that would not be appealing to either female or male teenager for this book.

I can honestly tell you, I have never in my long reading career read a book so short on description and enjoyed it! There are 323 pages of straight-to-the-point story. The author is masterful in this style of writing. You're hooked and you don't even realize you didn't get a great deal of description. I didn't realize until my son started reading this book and asked me if Clarke was the blond girl in the TV show. At that point I realized I didn't know what Clarke looked like. I had an image of her in my head based solely on her personality portrayal. It takes quite a skill to do something like that, have the reader create a character visually without any help from the author, and still successfully create characters that the reader has an attachment to. I have read many books that lacked description of their characters and cannot remember one story where the author successfully managed to create an attachment to that character.

This is great for young readers. It's an easy read, action-packed. The pace is fast and geared to grab and hold a person's attention. I just eagerly starting the second book and I will be very excited to read the third!

Gifts For Men This Christmas!

Let’s face it: shopping for men is officially impossible. Trawling department stores yields row upon row of hopelessly boring ties, hip flasks and socks, and attempting to find a suitable aftershave is a minefield (if a sweet smelling one). But don’t worry ladies, it is possible to find the man in your life a practical, purposeful gift this Christmas and we have a few ideas for the well-groomed man, the foodie, the outdoor man and the gadget geek man. 

For the well-groomed
It might seem a little obvious, but you can’t go wrong with shaving accessories. Whether you opt for a classic packaged, high-quality brush for lathering up, some decadent post-shave balm, or a new, top of the line electric razor, it’s something he’ll use every day. For the jet-setter, consider a flight kit for his next business trip, or if he must insist on boycotting the razor, some beard oil will keep his facial tresses smelling.

For the foodie
If the guy you’re shopping for considers himself something of a gourmand, thank your lucky stars, for the opportunities for present shopping are endless. A chilli plant will give him the chance to grow his own fiery seasoning, while a teppanyaki grill is a cool way to prepare a sit-down dinner in front of his friends. As for drinks, consider a hand-curated mixed case of craft beer, a thoughtful and trendy treasure to stash under the Christmas tree.

For the outdoor type
The survivalist in your life can never have too many Swiss army knives, so invest in one in the certain knowledge it will be used, even if it’s just to knock the cap off a beer. A hand-cranked generator will keep a camper with a phone happy, and at full charge, or for ultimate brownie points, buy him a Go Pro to capture all his extreme survival antics from a first person point of view.

For the gadget geek
A true feat of modern engineering, the pop-up hotdog toaster is now a thing. If this sounds a little random, consider a Chromecast, a nifty device that turns any TV with a USB port into a smart one. If your male recipient is a keen golfer, he can attach a Swingbyte to his favourite club and perfect his swing without leaving the office, or cool down his beer in an instant with a freezable Chillsner.

With plenty of time and lots of options to pick from, don’t panic, you’re sure to get him the perfect present.

Keep Your Teeth Cavity Free This Halloween w/ Xyla Toothpaste & Mouthwash

October is one of the months where our kids will have lots of sweet treats to eat. From treats we make at home to treats they get at school, plus the candy they will receive when they're out trick or treating, keeping their teeth healthy and bacteria free is important.

I was really excited when I received a package from Xyla Canada that included not only toothpaste and mouthwash for my hubby and me, but also toothpaste and mouthwash specifically for the kids.

Xylitol has been used in the dental field for over 60 years to help promote oral health and the prevention of disease caused by bacteria. The toothpaste and mouthwash also helps protect your teeth from tartar, reduces the plaque and freshens your breath.

We received the Refresh Peppermint Toothpaste for adults along with the Refresh Peppermint Mouthwash and both my husband and I have been very impressed. I love that both mouthwash and toothpaste weren't too minty and they have left my mouth feeling clean and protected.

My kids got to try the Refresh Very Berry Toothpaste and Mouthwash and are happy using both. They're not fans of minty mouthwash or toothpaste, so having the Berry flavored toothpaste and mouthwash was a big hit and they loved it.

We've been using both toothpaste and mouthwash all throughout the month of October and I love knowing that with all the sweets we've been eating lately, our teeth are being protected.

The mouthwash and toothpaste for kids are both perfect for your kiddos to use this month, especially after Halloween when they'll be eating their Trick-OR-Treat candy.

Mysteries in October @Netflix_CA #StreamTeam

October is one of my favorite times of the year. I absolutely love Halloween and everything that goes with it. From decorating the house to making lots of Spooky Treats for my kids to enjoy, this is definitely a month I look forward to every year.

One thing I love is to cuddle on the couch with a throw blanket, have some popcorn and hot chocolate and watch spooky mystery movies with  the hubby and kids. Throughout the month of October we have spooky movie nights where we get the family together, bring out the spooky treats and watch movies. It's a fun time for all of us and it definitely brings us closer together.

Now, we have some traditional movies that are a MUST watch every year on DVD like, Hocus Pocus, The Adams Family and Halloweentown (my all time favorites). We also watch a few mystery family movies on Netflix as well. It's great because each year Netflix has some great mystery movies/shows on for us to stream and watch and never disappoints. We watched Spooky Buddies this past weekend and my kids absolutely loved it. We've watched it before, but it gets them every time. They absolutely love the buddies movies and this is one of our favorites.

Here are a few of our favorite spooky mystery movies we love to watch as a family that are available on Netflix for you and your family to watch during this mysterious month!

What are some of your family's favorite mystery movies and/or shows you like to watch during the month of October?

That's a long show, I'm excited to watch. It's nice to know that even if we sleep a few hours during the show, we can wake up and continue to watch live. Will you try and stay up the full 24 hours to watch?

I love that Cotton is making its way back into our lives. I remember when I was younger, I had so many outfits that were made from cotton. They were clothes that were made to last. You don't see too much of that anymore, so I'm happy to see that there will be a 24-hour show dedicated to show all of us that Cotton is still here and hasn't gone away.

Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show, will celebrate “The Moments of Our Lives” with hourly themed looks from over 70 brands providing “cotton moments.

Treat Your Trick-OR-Treaters w/ Xyla Lollipops & Hard Candy This Halloween (Review)

October is one of my favorite months. Not only is it the beginning of my baking season, but it's also when we celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. We all know this month there will be lots of candy given to our children, which means they will consume a lot of sugar, which also means cavities can form in their teeth.

I was sent a few samples of lollipops and hard candy from Xylitol Canada, a company that provides natural sweetener products under the name Xyla, to try and substitute candy with sugar for my kids. This was a great test for me to see if they would notice if there was a difference in taste from other candy that contains sugar.

They didn't.

I was one happy mama to know that the kids didn't taste a difference and enjoyed both lollipops and hard candies. The lollipops and hard candies are one of the most effective treats in preventing cavities for all ages and have no artificial color in them. This is pretty awesome.

I have to admit I've had a few of them myself and I love them. My favorite is the grapefruit lollipop. I love these because I've been watching my weight since having the little one and like all of us, I get a sweet tooth every now and then. These are perfect to pop in your mouth when you get a sweet craving and a treat you don't have to feel guilty about. All of our samples we had in the house are gone because the kiddos ate them all up, so I know I'll definitely have to order a bag of each of them soon.

This would be a great treat to hand out to those kiddos coming to your door this year for Halloween. Something the kids will love and the parents will be happy about.

Jabra Rox Wireless (@jabra_US) Review

We all know how wearing wired headphones can some times be a pain. I know for me being a mom with little ones and being that my job other than blogging, a transcriber, requires me to wear headphones so that I can hear the audio I was given to type out. It was always a pain and inconvenient when I had to pick up and hold my kids when they were younger and, yes, multi-task and type with them on my lap. I'm happy to say that I won't have that problem anymore with my newest little one, thanks to Jabra's Rox Wireless ear buds.

If you haven't gotten yourself a pair of Jabra's Rox Wireless ear buds, go get them now, you won't regret it! These earbuds are perfect! Rox Wireless’s design is based on the same in-ear monitors used by professional musicians to bring full sound and strong bass. This is perfect for those of us who listen to music on our iphones/smartphones or ipods while at the gym, out walking in your neighborhood or doing yard work. They also work and are compatible with tablets and your laptop/computer. How great is that?!

I love that they connect really fast with whatever device you choose to use them with and they're super comfortable to wear. They also hold their charge really well with long playback and standby time (5.5 hours/ 8 days). They work really well if you have your device in one part of your house and are using the ear buds in another part of your house. It was great being able to listen to music on my phone as I was cleaning my kitchen and being able to take the trash out to the street without losing connection.

These have become a favorite for both my husband and I. He is currently using them with him as he is out of town on a business trip and he loves that when he isn't using them he can simply click the earbuds together around his neck and the magnets will activate the power- saving mode so that when he decides to use them again, the battery hasn't died.

These earbuds are small and light so that you can take them just about anywhere with you. Another thing I love about them is that I can use them on my phone and connect them to my van that has bluetooth connection and answer a phone call if I need to.

There are so many amazing features with these earbuds that anyone would love to have. They come with lots of accessories too that include:

Jabra Rox Wireless earbuds 
USB cable 
Protective bag
4 sets of ColorCore EarGels
3 sets of Jabra EarWings
Quick start guide
Jabra Sound App unique registration leaflet

These are perfect for music lovers everywhere and would make a great gift this upcoming Holiday Season. Jabra Rox Wireless earbuds retail for $129.99 and are available at Best Buy, Future Shop, Apple stores and www.apple.ca. For more information about Jabra and their products be sure to follow them on FacebookTwitter and Instgram.
