Halloween Tricks and Treats for Healthy Teeth


This Hallows’ Eve while wicked witches are brewing their cauldrons, and zombies are creeping through the night, we suspect that you and your kids will be screaming “trick or treat!”. Actually, my girls have been practicing for about a month now. Every.where.we.go! Yet Halloween brings a lot less tricks, and a lot more treats right?! I mean, look at the teeth on Halloween pumpkins?! Now that's enough … [Read more...]

Expedia.ca has a new Travel Writer!


It's a fact that travel has been a true passion of mine for many years. The spark started on my very first trip ever, a school exchange to Europe in High School. This excursion to France and Germany started a flame that only grew stronger. It's a longing to explore + live + experience the world around me, eyes and heart open. One of the many reasons why I'm thankful for this space called My Organized Chaos, is that I … [Read more...]

Get Your Free Redbox Movie Rental and RSVP for the #RedboxCanada Twitter Party!


The current change in the season also brings a change in routine. Packing away the sandals, getting out those heavier jackets. More oven and slow cooker cooking and bulky sweaters for all. I'm pretty vocal about not loving the winter season {at all}, yet there is some definite perks that I look forward to year after year. The main one is family movie nights, which we do a lot more of in the Fall and Winter seasons. … [Read more...]

Shaking Hands with the Season


I've been known to make 'that snarly face' when people say they love the Autumn season. I can't help it if everything around us right now just reminds me that dreaded winter and ungodly temperatures are coming. To me, the season is accompanied by one long loop of creepy ambient horror film music. Yet, I am making an honest effort this year to try and see the beauty and not the illness that is Fall ... no really, … [Read more...]

Katy Perry Prismatic World Tour #InstaGLAM


In August we got to end the summer with a huge bang. Quite literally, actually, as we took in the Katy Perry Prismatic World Tour {complete with fireworks} with thanks to P&G. The creme de la creme of the evening was the chance to meet Katy Perry backstage before her concert! Now, this was exciting for myself, of course. Who doesn't like the chance to rub elbows with a celebrity from time to time? Yet, it was … [Read more...]

We're hosting a pretty big Halloween party this year, for both kids and adults. It'll be a fun and celebration before we all go out trick or treating together in my neighbourhood. Of course the schedule and life is whizzing by, and I recently looked at the calendar and realized - I don't have much time left to prepare!

The New Circulon Prime Cookware


For years we got away with mismatched, low quality cookware for our new home. In the beginning, changes were aplenty and I just needed something to cook with. Yet, experience and time in the kitchen has taught me that cooking does require some steadfast and dependable tools - to get the job done correctly and efficiently. And yes, the taste can depend on it. Plus, I recently got a new Induction Oven, so now I've once … [Read more...]

We all Love to Connect – It’s the Cheerios Effect!


I think about the amazing advances in technology and come to the conclusion that we can truly make anything happen. In the world right now, people and families are oftentimes spread across great distances, yet there are many ways to connect that make that distance seem insignificant. While I can text, message and talk to people without actually seeing them - it's always special to have that face-to-face contact. Having … [Read more...]

Blueberry Cake – a Farmers Recipe


Nothing beats what comes from farms, don't you agree? We have dear friends that are local farmers, and it's been an eye-opener for this city girl, for many reasons. Since meeting them, I have been introduced to the most amazing meals and dishes. Even some foods that I never liked at all, I tried out of politeness while there, and loved it. I cannot give enough kudos to the Mrs. of the farm, she's always in the … [Read more...]
