Nintendo Switch is here! Today is the day! It’s Launch Day for the Nintendo Switch. My son and I had the chance to test out the Switch here in Toronto. And I have to say, we were both smitten. I am not a gamer by any stretch as was evident earlier today when I stood in line to nab a console for our family. It was def a case of one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other. But I’m quite certain this is the next great family console. And here’s why. melanie

Valentine’s Day Edition 2017 #5favesfriday

mommydo.com | Valentine's Day Edition #5favesfriday

A day where we celebrate love? I do have a soft spot for Vanlentine’s Day. Growing up my dad ALWAYS bought my sister and I at least one red rose and a box of Turtles. It wasn’t big or fancy or anything, but that Valentine’s Day tradition still warms by heart around this time of year. Do you exchange gifts? We don’t really give big gifts here for Valentine’s Day. We’re not anti-v-day or anything. But our anniversary is just around the corner, and my b-day just passed. But I still love to check out what I might like, you, know, if…

5 Faves Friday – Winter Style Edition

Five faves friday mommydo

  Winter has finally landed in Toronto so it’s time to grab your favourite winter garb and enjoy the season. There’s nothing better than a turtleneck sweater for chilly Sunday afternoons. This one, from Eileen Fisher is on my wish list. With the new retail location opening soon, it might be in my closet in no time. These amazing fleecy hats are made just around the corner from my home and are available in baby, toddler and adults sizes. You can find MiniEm on Etsy. This Lululemon jacket has been on my wish list since last year. I’ve been saving up my nickels…

5 Faves Friday: Can’t buy love but…

    So I know Valentines Day is just a couple of days away, but I thought I’d list off a few things that have been making my heart beat a little faster. This beautiful white quartz pendant from Mason Birks. Even the photo version makes my heart go pitter patter. It’s simple and stylish, and while it is pricy, it’s not astronomical. I love Starbucks. I’m not sure if words can even express how much I love to get a hot tea from Starbucks. And as a tea is less than $3, this one can suit any budget. I often get…

Five Faves Friday: Customer Service

5 Faves Friday Customer Service Edition

I’ve been seeing a post that praises the customer service at US online retailer Zulily on my Facebook page. Their customer service sounds amazing. But I hate for people to think that it’s out of this world. I’ve encountered 5 brands with stand-out customer service over the past 6 months or so, and I’d love to spread some love to all of them. I wrote this past year about how much I love my Zoku pops maker. Shortly after that, I went to take it from the cupboard and something had happened to it. Something bad. It looked like whatever…

5 Faves Friday: Kitchen Gadget Edition

We’re heading into holiday season! Which means a LOT of time in the kitchen. I truly love all the baking and cooking, but it’s so much more enjoyable with the right tools. Four of five of these are my go-to fav’s at home  – so much so that a few are starting to show some wear. If you’re looking for the right gadgets to get set for the holidays, these might be just what the head chef ordered. If you make meat, go into your gadget drawer. 1.Throw out your meat thermometer. Get one of these. It’s the OXO Good…

5 Faves Friday: Craft Beer Edition

Fresh off the Blissdom craft beer tour bus, I give you 5 faves friday with the golden nectar of the gods. Three of these are local to Collingwood and delicious. The other two are close to home and are regulars both when we head out for a taste and in our fridge. Rooster Tail Pale Ale from Northwinds Brewhouse, Collingwood. Not only is the beer delicious, the french fries at the brew pub are also top notch. Downhill Pale Ale from Collingwood Brewery is one tasty brew. The cans are also super cute and the staff at the brewery are…

5 fav’s friday: falling

Fall is here! Finally. Fall is definitely my season. Sweaters. Boots. Comfort food. The best! Here are a few of my favourite fall things – some I have, some I’m lusting over. This one I have and absolutely love. It’s the Safari Jacket from Joe Fresh. I get TONS of compliments…so many that I’m considered buying the other colour. It’s the perfect weight now that fall is here. This one is a two product combo. Fall is pulled pork season out our house. Our Cuisinart Slow Cooker gets a great workout in the fall – often with this amazing Pulled Pork…

5 fav’s friday: clinging to summer

When I started writing this it was a balmy 31˚C so I was ready to rock summer a little longer. Then it got stuck in draft mode. I’m still gonna throw it out there despite the fact that it is already down 15˚C, I am wearing a turtleneck and went to get a tea to help drive off the damp chill I can’t seem to shake. There’s something about the sweet summer days after Labour Day that make you want to hold onto that summer feeling just a little bit longer. Here are some of my favourites to help make…

5 fav’s friday: Back to School Edition

5 Faves Friday: Back to School Edition There’s something about this time of year that makes me want to take a long look at where I want to go, and how I might get there. Back to school is still my ‘resolution time’. Here are my 5 picks for what I wish I had to get me ready for next Tuesday when the kids go back to school – the first day of my New Year. 1. Check out these Frecklebox Personalized lunch boxes. I’d love to write some little notes to remind myself to be awesome every day. 2….
