Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Covers

Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

For the very first time, there are 3 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 covers. Normally, I wouldn’t bat an eye at this, but this year is particularly special as the covers are a showcase of the diversity in women’s bodies. This is a big step forward as most covers we see in newsstands, particularly when they feature models in bathing suits, only highlight a very particular body type. The celebration of various body shapes that the SI Swimsuits 2016 covers have featured is something I would love to see more of in the future. It’s empowering!

Toronto Family Day Activities 2016

Family Day Activities 2016

I am SO excited for this long weekend! Saturdays and Sundays fly by and I find myself wishing for a day in between; and it has also been TOO long since the last long weekend. I’m particularly excited about this year as we’ll be able to do something fun with our little lady! Last year, she was still too little to truly enjoy any activities in the city. While I was looking for Family Day activities for this weekend, I ran into so many wonderful options. I wish we could make it to all of them!

Why The Barbie 2016 Fashionistas Line Is So Important

Curvy Barbie Tall Barbie Petite Barbie Original Barbie

Barbie has introduced its 2016 Fashionistas line and it made me VERY happy. At 28 years old, I felt like I could finally relate to this beautiful doll that I had created so many fond memories with. I LOVED playing with all my Barbies as a little girl and even still have them all in a pink Barbie suitcase at my parent’s home, along with all my accessories and furniture which are stored in boxes. I kept them because, not only did my parents feel bad about getting rid of my favourite childhood toys, but most importantly because I wanted to one day share them with my daughter.

The Milk Meg, Meg Nagle Boobin All Day

I recently read a brilliant, as-in-I-can’t-get-over-how-great-it-is, book, “Boobin’ All Day Boobin’ All Night”, by Meg Nagle, an Australia based International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. It was my very first Amazon Kindle purchase as I wanted an on-the-go version because I KNEW I would not be able to put this book down. I finished it in 2 days, and that’s while keeping up with a 13 month old!

Fuller House Teaser

HAVE MERCY!
That is exactly what I had to tell myself a second ago when I saw that Netflix had released a teaser for Fuller House. I am right back in the 90’s with my black spandex shorts, over-sized sweater and teased hair – the epic DJ Tanner look!

The big news is that they will launch all of the episodes on February 26th, 2016, so mark your calendars! We all know what I will be doing on that day… #NetflixAndChill (literally!).

Okay, okay….here it is!
