Celebrating Potty Training Month with a Kandoo Giveaway! #kandookids

Last week I wrote a post about potty training and how I got through it with my older two and how I'm still a bit nervous to do it all over again in a few months after my little one turns one. Not everyone will have the same experience. In fact, not every kid has the same experience as each kid is different, so you have to potty train them according to what works for them. It can be anything from aiming at fruit loops, like my son did, or using a sticker rewarding system, like I did with my daughter. Either way, don't put too much stress on your child or yourself to get them trained. If it takes a while for them to get the hang of it, it's okay. They will eventually get it.

You all know that I've been a Kandoo Ambassador for the last two years. Not only is this a brand I've used and currently still do use with my kids, but it's also a brand I trust completely. I've been using Kandoo ever since my oldest who is going on ten, first started potty training. So to celebrate potty training month, we're partnering up with Kandoo and offering one of of Just Us Girls readers a Kandoo Prize pack that includes the entire line of Kandoo products! This is a perfect prize for any mom with little ones that are about to start potty training or even for those who have little ones who are already trained.

Rickard's Radler Grapefruit (Review & Giveaway)

Summer will officially be here in less than a week. You know what that means? Time for lots of barbecues, pool parties and lots of outdoor time! I'm so excited to be outside and soaking up the sun. There's nothing like relaxing outside with your family and why not enjoy it with a nice cold beer? Although I'm not a huge beer drinker, I do love to have the occasional beer when it's really hot out or when I've been working on the yard.

I was recently introduced to Rickard's Radler Grapefruit. You guys, this is such a great drink and perfect to sip on during those hot days. You all know I'm a fan of Rickard's, so when I had the opportunity to try their Radler Grapefruit, a lightly flavored beer that was flavored with grapefruit, I was thrilled.

Even if you're not a beer drinker, you'll find Rickard's Radler to be crisp and refreshing with the tart of grapefruit leaving your taste buds enticed for another round. It's not as strong tasting as most beers and doesn't leave you bloated, it's really light.

Rickard's Radler is combined with their traditional Rickard's Lager and refreshing lemon and grapefruit juice. At only 3.2% alcohol, it's a perfect light and refreshing drink to have this Summer. For more information about Rickard's Radler Grapefruit and other Rickard's beverages, head to www.rickards.ca.

We've partnered up with Rickard's to give one lucky Just Us Girls readers a chance to win a Rickard's Prize pack. The prize pack includes, two Rickard’s T-shirts, two Rickard’s pint glasses and a two orange slice designed bottle openers. Giveaway is open to our Canadian readers only, good luck!

St. Ive's Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub & Body Wash Review

I love trying new bath and body products, especially when they're from a brand that I already trust and love. So when I heard about St. Ive's Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange scrub and body wash, I knew I had to try it. With Summer being around the corner and the weather warming up, I love using products in the shower that smells both fresh and clean. 

I already use their Apricot face scrub. I've been using it over a year now and so there was no doubt that I would love the Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub. What I love about this scrub is how when you apply it on your face it goes on smooth, It first feels like lotion being applied and once you rub it in to clean your face and rinse it off, your face feels fresh, clean and smooth. It's made with 100% naturally derived exfoliants and is made to polish away little imperfections for bright, radiant and more even-toned skin.

After using the Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange body wash, I can tell you that it's now one of my all time favorites to use in the warmer months of the year. Not only does it lathers up great when applied, you'll feel like you've been given a burst of energy from the smell of the citrus scent. I love the feeling of feeling fresh and clean when getting out of the shower and this does just that.

Both the scrub and body wash are formulated without parabens, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and retail between $5.19-$7.49 at stores near you. For more information about the new Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange products and other St. Ive products be sure to head to www.stives.ca.

Father's Day Gift Guide #FathersDay

Father's Day is around the corner. Over the last few years, we've made it a tradition to take all the dad's in our family out for a weekend of camping. It's tons of fun and once we're back home and unpacked, I usually end the day cooking my hubby's favorite meal.

Along with his favorite meal, the kids and I give the hubby his gift. With nine days left before the day arrives, finding the right gift for the men in your life is important.

He loves riding his motorcycle, practicing archery with his bow or finding a new recipe to make involving meat, so I have a few different ideas on what to get him.

@Languinis: Word Puzzle Challenge & iTunes Giveaway!

I was recently introduced to the game Languinis: Word Puzzle Challenge. If you're a dedicated follower, you'll remember how much I absolutely love video games. This includes games I can play on my iPhone and iPad too.

I don't keep many games on my iPhone because I take a lot of pictures, so my games are mostly on my iPad and this is one game I've been playing non-stop for about a week now and absolutely love it. I even have the hubby playing it too.

Languinis is a mix of both matching and spelling game. This gives you the best of both worlds if you love word puzzles and matching games. 

Languini tribe has been forced into servitude under the not-so nice Phoenix god. To help free our new friends, you match items to uncover letters, than spell words. Do that enough and the Languinis get their freedom back! There’s more to this than your average causal game. The object of the game is to get three matching shapes in a row, once you do they'll flip over and become letters. You then need to spell a word with three letters or more in order to clear the tiles and eventually complete your goal and move on to the next level. This fun and challenging game will have you playing for hours! More than 50 levels split across 12 lavishly hand-drawn islands and more to come with content updates.

Languinis is now available free on both the App Store and Google Play. For more information on Languinis and their peaceful ways, please visit: www.languinisgame.com and follow the game on Facebook and Twitter.

To celebrate Languinis, we're giving away (10) $10 iTunes gift cards. All you need to do is leave a comment letting us know what other word puzzle games you like to play! (This giveaway is for our US readers only!)

@Dial Products For The Whole Family (Review)

I love when I can find a brand that has products for my entire family to use. Dial has been a brand that I've used for years. Not only are their products great quality, but they are also affordable too.

When I heard that they had some new products coming out for their 2015 line, I was happy that I'd get to try some. I was sent their new Baby Body + Hair Wash, Coconut Water and Mango Body Wash and their Omega Moisture with Sea Berries Body Wash and body bar.

My days are always busy, especially around dinner time because soon after is bath time and showers for my kiddos. With a 10 month old, it's important to find products that not only work great, but also saves me both money and time. What I love most about the Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash is that it works for both body and hair. So when it comes to bath time, I only need to bring out one product to get her body and hair clean without having to grab another bottle.

Dial's Baby Body + Hair Wash is mild enough for your baby’s skin and removes dirt for a head-to-tiny-toes clean. It's both fragrance and tear free and it's also hypoallergenic so it can be used for every baby. The Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash is retailed for $6.99.

Now that the warmer weather is here, my showers are less hot and more on the cool side. I love that I can step into the shower and use the Coconut Water and Mango body wash and feel like I'm on a tropical island. Not only will this body wash have you feeling tropical, but it will leave your skin feeling hydrated, clean, fresh and soft. It lathers up great and a little will go a long way. Coconut Water and Mango Body Wash is retailed at $6.99.

Lastly, I got to try both the body wash and body bar for Dial's Omega Moisture with Sea Berries. Let me just say not only does this smell good, it also moisturizes your skin and leaves it feeling soft and healthy.

Sea berries contain 190 nutrients and high levels of omega lipids to help nourish and strengthen your
skin’s barrier for healthy looking skin. This advanced moisture-attracting formula provides lasting, lightweight hydration.

The body bar is orange and it lathers up and rinses off nicely as does the body wash and it doesn't leave any residue behind. When you step out of the shower you will be feeling fresh and ready to start your day. Omega Moisture with Sea Berries body wash and bar soap retails for $6.99.

You can find all of these products from Dial at your local Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws. For more information about these and other Dial products, be sure to head over to www.dialsoap.com.

Lancaster Soft Caramel & Soft Caramel and Vanilla Swirls Review

I feel like as I'm getting older, I see myself doing things like my mom and grandma both did. This has been happening often lately and I actually like it. I smile every time I say or do something that reminds me of them. One of the things I've noticed is that I tend to keep candy in my purse and on my desk because throughout the day, I tend to get a sweet tooth.

So I was really excited when I was sent some of Hershey's Lancaster Soft Caramels in both original soft caramel and soft caramel with vanilla swirl. These soft and chewy delights are new to Canada and let me tell you, they are simply delicious.

Lancaster Soft Caramels were inspired by similar caramels that company founder, Milton Hershey, made more than 120 years ago in his original candy company located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Soft Caramel and Soft Caramel and Vanilla Swirls have a long-lasting and unique caramel sweet taste, with a rich and creamy texture that will melt in your mouth. You won't be able to eat just one. I'm a huge fan of soft caramels and these are definitely high on my list of favorites. I loved that they were sweet, but not too sweet. Perfect for those days where you need something to satisfy your sweet tooth, but they are highly addictive. I opened up the bag and had one and couldn't resist the urge to grab another.

I also was a huge fan of the package. It looks like you've paid way more for these delights than you actually did and the taste of these caramels will have you thinking that too. You can take these with you on the go and leave them in your purse or pocket so that you can satisfy your sweet tooth wherever you are.

Lancaster Soft Caramel and Soft Caramel and Vanilla Swirls can be found across Canada. For more information on this and other Hershey products be sure to head to www.hersheycanada.com

Potty Training w/ Your Little Ones #KandooKids

At the end of next month my little girl will be turning one. This year has flown by so fast, its made me both happy and sad. Happy that she has been going into the next phase in her life, but sad because it feels like I was just bringing her home from the hospital.

With her turning one soon, I know it's almost time for me to start creating new potty training sheets to use for her like I did my other two kids. Now, I have to say I got pretty lucky with my older two. Potty training was a breeze. After the first week, my oldest daughter had it down and was good to go and it took my son a bit longer, but not too much. He was fully trained a few weeks after we started.

It's been seven years since I last potty trained a toddler. Although it didn't take a long time for my older two to get the hang of it, the process was both stressful and rewarding for all. I think my son had it easier since he was excited to potty train because his older sister, who is 23 months older than him, was fully trained and he loved doing what she did.

With my older daughter I used the sticker system. I created a chart and for every time she went on the potty she got to pick a sticker of her choice to add to the potty chart. Once she had a line completed, she was then rewarded with a treat from the Potty Box, which had candy in it. Now for my son, although the potty chart worked for him, he also wanted to use the potty like dad. This was tricky for me since I couldn't show him how daddy did it, but I was then told a cool tip from my sister in law to put fruit loops in the potty and have him practice aiming. It may sound silly but it worked and he had so much fun when going number one to the potty.

Now, obviously what works for one child may not work for another child. Each kid is different and so they have to find what works for them. This goes for the parents too. One thing I always had on hand were the Kandoo Wipes and Handsoap. Both my kids were huge fans of the soap and I was a huge fan of the wipes because they helped with the sticky situations, if you know what I mean.

Below is a Potty Training Guide provided by Kandoo to help you with your little one when it's time to get started. For more information on Kandoo products and tips on Potty Training be sure to head to www.kandookids.ca.

Watching Childhood Shows w/ Your Kiddos #StreamTeam

Being a mom with three kiddos can be pretty busy. Between taking care of my 10 month old, carpooling my 10 year old to Girl Guides and in between soccer practice with my eight year old, life sure keeps us on our toes.

I love my kids. They are my world, so on days when we get a chance, I love sitting down with them snuggled on the couch watching Netflix and just hanging out with them. What I love most about Netflix is they have something for everyone. They even have shows I use to watch as a kid streaming and those are the ones the hubby and I love watching with the kids the most. I love my kids facial expression when they find out the show we just watched was originally on when their dad and I were kids. The look on their face is priceless.

From shows that are 15 years old to the new and improved remake of these shows, we love them all. I love seeing the changes they've made to some of the shows I use to watch as a kid and I also love re-watching the original shows with my kids, it brings back lots of memories.

Here are a few shows that we're watching together with our kiddos that took us back, way back to our childhood.

1. Scooby Doo - We love Scooby Doo and the gang. This is a show we've been watching with the kids for years. We even have the movies. This is one cartoon I was always watching as a kid and love watching now. It's awesome to hear my little ones guess who they think is under the mask.

2. Garfield and Friends - Who doesn't love this hilarious sarcastic cat that gets into so much trouble? Watching Garfield and friends have brought back so many memories of my siblings and I when we were younger. This was one show we always watched Saturday mornings.

3. The Magic School Bus - A show I remember watching after school and on Saturday mornings. What I love most about this show is how after each episode we've learned something new about our body.This is one of my favorites to watch with the kids, because although it's a cartoon, it also teaches them so much.

4. TMNT - Last but not least, TMNT! This has got to be our all time favorite. My husband and I were big fans of the movies when we were kids and our kids have become huge fans  as well. We have all three movies including the 2014 remake and watching the cartoon together with them is always entertaining.

What are you streaming with your family? Are you watching shows from your childhood or are you watching some of the new shows that are streaming? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear.

For more info on shows that are streaming on Netflix head to www.Netflix.ca

Choosing The Right Food For Your Fur Baby! #Petcurean

Finding the right food for your fur babies can be pretty overwhelming, especially when there's so many different brands offering similar ingredients. I know when we first got our dog Max last April, I went with the brand that we had used with our previous dog, but just like people, each dog is different and what may work for one dog, may not necessarily work for another.

Over the last couple of months, we have switched our dog, Max, to the Petcurean GO! Dog Food. I've never seen a dog so happy to come in the house to eat breakfast and dinner. When eating the GO! Dog Food, for the first time, Max would run in the house and eat dinner as if he was getting a treat, which made us feel so happy to see how much he enjoyed the food.

Loaded with nutrient-packed dog food that includes chicken, lamb, turkey, salmon, duck, and trout; plus fruits, veggies, herbs, and berries, GO!, puts more life into the everyday dog. I have to say I completely agree. Max is only a little over a year old, but I have already noticed how much happier and alert he is from eating healthier dog food. GO! has zero growth hormones, by-products, or artificial preservatives. 

GO! is definitely worth a try if you're looking for food that allows your dog to stay healthy and strong. For more information about GO! Natural Dog food, be sure to head over to www.petcurean.com

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants DVD (Review & Giveaway)

After a couple leaves their picnic in a hurry, a gang of hungry ants moves in to steal what could be their most coveted treasure: a tin box filled with sugar cubes. But before they can get away with the loot, a newly-born ladybug strays from its own family and gets trapped inside the box! The ladybug is soon spirited away by the ants as they try to transport their prize across the woods toward their colony. Together, the insects embark on an epic journey to protect their sugar.

This was such a great movie to sit down and watch with the kids. We've seen movies before where we get the point of view from the bugs and insects and how they live their life, like A Bug's Life, but this movie was both hilarious and captivating as my kids could not keep their eyes off the screen.

When we find movies like this to watch, it's great. From beginning to end Minuscule will have you wanting to see what happens next. What I really loved about this movie was how much the movie brought to life how bugs and insects see what happens to them with people and other animals involved and that this was a movie that didn't need much dialogue. My kids loved seeing the story come to life on its own by just watching it and seeing the ladybug help the black ants fight against the red ants.

If you're looking for a movie to bring home to watch this Summer, this would be a great movie to watch with the entire family.

I'm excited to team up with kaboom! Entertainment once again to give one of our Canadian readers a chance to win a copy of Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants on DVD. For more information about Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants and kaboom! Entertainment be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

Lalaloopsy Mona Arch Wings Review

Bright colors, beautiful costume and a cute little pet, not much to complain about here. These dolls are so cute and very loved! We have a little collection going on and my little girl was so excited to add the Mona Arch Wings doll to it.

These Lalaloopsy dolls were once rag-dolls that magically came to life and took on the personalities of the fabric used to make them. With a new season comes new characters including the Lalaloopsy social butterfly, Mona Arch Wings.

The Mona Arch Wings doll is a pretty good size (13 inches) that comes with a beautiful outfit and shoes that can be removed for play along with her pet caterpillar. One of the things I loved about this doll was that her wings weren't detachable. This way they never get lost and she can remain a beautiful doll with her wings at all times.

My little girl has so much fun with these dolls. Her name started a conversation and had Joey looking up Monarch Butterflies, which I thought was pretty awesome. These dolls are very well made and durable. 

My youngest daughter at a year old plays with Joey too. I watch her closely since there are some smaller accessories but both girls are drawn to the bright happy colors and all around adorableness.

The Lalaloopsy Mona Arch Wings retails at $29.99 and can be found at Toys “R” UsWalmartLoblaws and Sears.

New @got2bCAN Mind Blowing Collection Review #got2B

I'm always looking for new products when it comes to my hair. So when given the chance to review the newest collection, Mind Blowing, from got2B, I was pretty excited. The one thing that caught my eye was the great bottle colors and the fantastic smells of the products.

The Mind Blowing Collection includes the Mind Blowing Quick Shape Mousse, Mind-Blowing Xpress Dry Styling Spray and the Mind-Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray. The Mind Blowing collection is made to leave your hair soft, shiny and frizz free by using their three step process.
3 Step Process
Step 1 - Reduce your blow drying time and increase your style ability with IONIC+ System technology.The Mind Blowing Quick Shape Mousse adds volume and increases shine, leaving your hair soft. Apply it to the roots of damp hair before blow drying, and watch your hair quickly shape into a glamourously voluminous style. 

Step 2 - The Mind-Blowing Xpress Dry Styling Spray works with damp hair to expedite the drying process while protecting the hair from heat, and keeping hair from tangling while blow drying. Your hair is left shiny, sleek and smooth to the touch. Apply to towel dried hair and blow dry using a round brush for the ultimate blow out. 

Step 3 - Last, the Mind-Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray is the finishing touch.  IONIC+ Power and Micro-Diffuser Technology offers fast drying time and flexible hold so you can run your fingers through your hair to achieve the perfect blowout.  Hold it 8-10 inches from your hair and spot spray and use hands to create extra volume and then spray evenly for an all over hold.

The Quick Shape Mousse was the first product I tried. I don’t like to use mousse because once it dries my curly hair starts to go frizzy and unmanageable. I am so glad I got to try this product! I absolutely love the smell. It is neutral for sure, not feminine but not masculine either. Left my hair really soft and so shiny! I had tons of volume and my layers looked great, really defined. Lasts all day and super easy to style the next morning. It did leave my hair a bit tangled. I would recommend either washing your hair the next day or adding more of the mousse for your hairstyle the next day. The bottle is quite big and a little bit goes along way. I could say I'm a fan of mousse now, but really I'm just a fan of the Quick Shape Mousse. This is definitely something I will be buying in the near future. 

The Styling Spray wasn't what I thought it would be and I was a bit disappointed with it. I was thinking it would leave my hair feeling shiny and smooth but it didn’t. I used it after my hair was blow dried and before I used my flat iron. I think that was the problem, I was suppose to use it before I blow dried my hair. It left my hair sticky and the hold was too strong. The feeling of my hair was rough and very hard to comb or run my fingers through my hair. When I do use it again, I will make sure to use it before I blow dry my hair while it's damp to see if the outcome changes.

Lastly, the Fast Drying Hair Spray, my favorite out of the three from the Mind Blowing Collection. I have tested a lot of hairsprays and this by far is my favorite. I hate hairsprays that are wet and sticky and this is brush able, soft, and holds all day! My hair stays in place and after leaving in my hair for hours it doesn’t become flaky on my scalp or leave it itchy.

Over all the products and brand are great. The smell is amazing and leaves it feeling full and stylish. I would recommend the Mind Blowing Collection to friends and family.

got2b Mind-Blowing products are now available retailing at $7.99 for the Dry Styling Spray and Mousse and $9.99 for the Hairspray at retailers nationwide, including: Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Loblaws, PharmaPlus, Rexall and London Drugs. For more information about the Mind Blowing Collection be sure to check out got2B online.

The Legend of Longwood DVD #TheLegendofLongwood (Review & Giveaway)

The film stars Lucy Morton as Mickey Miller, a thoroughly modern 12-year-old American girl whose great love is horses. Not surprisingly, she has little enthusiasm for her mother’s plan to take Mickey and her little brother to start a new life in a run-down mill she has inherited in Longwood, a windswept Irish town at the end of the world.

Mickey’s presence in Longwood coincides with the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler who found no peace after his baby daughter was taken from him, and whose appearances always mean that something evil is going to happen to the villagers. Mickey hears and sees things that others can’t, and forms an immediate bond with Silver, the proudest, haughtiest, most untamable horse in the stalls of a nearby castle. Realizing that she is directly linked to the story of the Black Knight, Mickey and her new friend Sean set out to redeem the knight so as to bring lasting peace to Longwood. But first she must save the lives of seven horses and thwart the evil plans of a greedy, ambitious woman – a mighty handful even for the bravest girl!

This was such a beautiful movie filled with a great cast, amazing story line and lovely scenery. I got to watch this with my daughter for a mommy-daughter movie night and it was great to see my daughter show so much interest in this movie.  She already has such a love for animals so watching this movie made her love them even more. She loved that there was a movie that starred someone around her age. 

From beginning to the end this movie was truly captivating. A pre-teen  brave heroine who is up against evil and fights to save seven horses. The bond between Mickey and Silver is great to watch and definitely had my daughter now interested in riding horses. This is a great movie for the entire family and will be out on DVD on June 4th and June 9th in Canada. 

The Legend of Longwood retails for $14.97. For more information about The Legend of Longwood be sure to head over to www.shoutfactory.com.
