Dream Kitchen with #GEMakeItSlate

mommydo.com| #makeitslate dream kitchen

What does your dream kitchen look like? I thought I was living with mine. But as time goes on, I’m finding the dark wood in the middle of our open concept house to be a bit of a black hole. More and more, I seem to be lusting over light grey and white kitchens – with just enough slate and black to add a heap of style without making the area feel too dark. I threw together a quick mood board which included the new GE Slate gas stove. Not only do I love the colour, but the versatile grills…

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…

Back-to-School Hannas Haul

Back-to-School Hannas Haul I do love this time of year. It’s so ripe with potential. New school year. New beginnings. New clothes… This year I was totally wooed by Hanna Andersson. I try not to order from the States – duty, exchange etc, but I didn’t see any point in spending less here on clothes that don’t stand up to everything my kids put them through. So I bit the bullet and splurged. In my defense, I did load my cart then wait and wait for a good sale to come along. And, i got an extra discount when I…

The long overdue review of Stokke Crusi

I’ve had the Stokke Crusi for about a year now, give or take. Which is a long time to take to get around to a review. I discovered the Stokke brand in 2009 when I was preparing for the arrival of the Bubble and googled best stroller for bad back. Up popped the Xplory. I was instantly sold, despite the hefty price tag. Fast forward to April 2013. After a long winter of being stuck inside with obviously not typically developing Obi hiding out from RSV season, I set about getting a new Xplory. I already had an upgraded seat…

Mommydo’s 5-Minute Face

This fab combo is my current go-to to take off 5 years and make it look like I got 5 more hours of sleep. A sensitive skin friendly, blemish banishing, fine-line fighting super set of cosmetics that you can put on in a flash and dash out the door. The tinted moisturizer is SPF 30 (awesome) and the Benefit lip stuff makes my lips feel all soft and velvety. This isn’t a sponsored post or anything (of course if NARS or BENEFIT want to replenish my stash, that would be FAB), just a quick note to let other time-starved-who-has-time-for-makeup-but-when-did-I-get-so-old-and-tired-looking-geez-maybe-I-should-do-something-about-that women…
