Kellogg's Has Put The Prize Back In The Box

Do you remember digging around the cereal box trying to find the awesome prizes they used to hide in there? I remember collecting tons of toys and knick knacks over the years. My family had three kids so it was always a race to be the one to open a new box so you'd get first dibs on the toy. 

A few weeks ago my husband and I were chatting about how in recent years there are never fun surprises for kids in cereal. Then like magic, a box from Kellogg's arrived at my door announcing that they were putting the prize back in the box!
This spring, Canadians will be able to experience the joy of a fun treat inside boxes of Kellogg's cereal! 

 Keep an eye out for specially marked family-size boxes so your kids can start their very own Cereal & Milk Spoon Straw collection. You will find one spoon straw in each participating box and there are five different ones to collect, each featuring a different cereal theme. My favorite is the Froot Loops spoon with Toucan Sam!
The spoon straws are perfect for eating your cereal and then slurping up your leftover milk with the straw. I really love that they come apart making cleaning them a breeze. 

Pick up a box (or five) today and put the magic back in breakfast!

Celebrate 25 Years of Stars On Ice With Jergens {Giveaway}

I remember watching figure skating on television with my mom when I was a kid. As much as I enjoyed watching the skaters compete, I really preferred the rare occasions when they aired events that weren't competitions. It is so fun to watch the top skating talent let loose and have fun with their skills. That's what I love about Stars On Ice. You really get to see the skaters shine as they put on a fun show, with no worries about judges.There is nothing quite like watching Kurt Browning put on a show purely to thrill skating fans!
Stars On Ice is currently touring Canada and Jergens is a proud sponsor as the show celebrates it's 25th Anniversary. Kurt Browning not only headlines the show but he's also responsible for the choreography.  He's joined by Canada’s top figure skaters like Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Joannie Rochette, Scott Sawyer and more! The generous folks at Jergens have sent me tickets so my family and I can check out the show when it hits Edmonton on May 16th so stay tuned for a post sharing my experience after the show. You can check out the dates and times of all the shows at

My basket included some Jergens lotion and BB Cream along with Natural Glow products that are great for giving your skin a tan look without the sun. My favorite new product included in my basket is the Shea Beauty Oil. I apply it after I shower and am left with radiant, hydrated skin that looks and feels amazing!

Take Home the Penguins of Madagascar {Review}

Have you had a chance to check out the Penguins of Madagascar yet in their own feature film? The movie was released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy March 17th so you can now watch it anywhere, anytime. 

My family watched the movie this week and enjoyed lots of laughs. There are the zany antics we expect from these penguins but the storyline is built on more than just laugh. The movie has a sense of adventure and fun while still managing some sweet moments. There are some fabulous voice talents, including John Malkovich and Benedict Cumberbatch, who really bring the story to life. And the blu-ray picture quality is second to none!

One of the big benefits of owning a movie is the bonus features and this one does not disappoint. The blu-ray includes music videos, deleted scenes, throwbacks to the Madagascar movies and so much more. Our favorite was learning, step by step, how to do the Penguin Shake dance.

Pick up a copy of Penguins of Madagascar today!

In DreamWorks’ PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, your favorite super-spies—Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private—join forces with the elite North Wind team to save the world. It’s a side-splitting, globe-trotting adventure the whole family will love! Introduce the Penguin family to your family on March 17 when Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment releases DreamWorks’ PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR on Blu-ray™ and DVD.
