New Cordless Dyson available at Best Buy #cordlesspower

crose

I live in a house with a man, three children and a dog. In other words, I am constantly cleaning up after someone. My broom is always at the ready and the paper towels are used constantly, but they aren't always the right tools for the job. Some messes require the strength of a Dyson. The Dyson - V6 Absolute Bagless Cordless Stick Vacuum is a cordless vacuum that is light and easy to use. It has tackled some hard to clean messes in my kitchen, like salt from a shaker that was opened in the middle of the room (Why? I have no idea!). The Dyson V6 ensured we all remained injury free by vacuuming up shards of glass after my son knocked ...

Portability is a WAHM’s Best Friend

spectre folded

It's 3:30pm and the kids are home from school. It's loud. My work day isn't finished yet even though I tried to get everything urgent done before I picked the kids up. The kids are hungry. They're fighting. I can not get my work done in this environment. I have just described the end of the school day for most work at home Moms. It's pure chaos. The last thing I want to do to my kids when they get home from school is make them feel ignored, but the work has to get done, so what does a busy Mom do? I grab my HP Spectre x360, throw it in my purse and walk the kids to the park. Once they are running around and enjoying every moment ...

Win a Breville No Mess Waffle Maker ARV $170 {Canada}

breville waffle maker

Waffles are highly coveted by my children. Since I didn't have a waffle maker before receiving the Breville No Mess Waffle Maker, they had to wait until we were out somewhere to order waffles. You can imagine how often they asked to go out for breakfast! Thankfully, those days are over and now I can make them waffles right here at home. As much as I love a hot breakfast, I had never made my own waffles before and I wasn't entirely sure of what I was doing. I quickly lost the manual and decided to wing it with a recipe I found online. I mixed it up and filled the maker with batter... So that's why they call it a "No Mess" waffle ...

My Homeschool Helper: HP Spectre x360

standing

Soon I will be homeschooling one of my children, so I have been doing a lot of planning and preparation. There are a lot of things to consider when you take the leap to homeschool. What hours will be scheduled for school? Where will he do his work? What subjects will you teach, and how will you do it? What equipment do you need? While many of these questions are still up for debate, I feel like I have most of the equipment I need. The HP Spectre x360 is a vital tool in our lesson plans. We are doing topic based learning, which means my son will choose a subject of interest to him and we will develop the lessons based on that. For example, ...

There are so many experiences that I want my children to have when we travel. Of course I want them to have fun and I want them to appreciate that special time with family, but there's more too. I want them to discover history in each place we visit. I want them to develop an appreciation for nature and to learn the roles they play in the sustainability of our planet. I want them to take risks and face their fears in ways that are exhilarating and memorable. We can't always achieve all of these goals on one trip, but on a trip to Quito we actually can! Quito boasts numerous important historical and architectural sites, including the ...

The HP Spectre x360 is the Perfect Travel Companion

1c15 - HP Spectre x360 Convertible PC with Windows 8.1 Updated Color Tile Screen, Hero, Retail POS Key Visual

Travel is in my blood. It's my passion and I'm very fortunate to be able to travel through my blog. Before almost every press trip and conference I notice the same question being asked on social media... "Are you bringing your computer?" It may seem like a silly question considering we are all working on these trips, but it isn't really. Computers can be heavy, they add an extra step when going through security, they can't be plugged in on most airplanes and we are often so busy that we don't get a chance to use them anyway. So do I bring my computer? Yes. Always. There's a lot of reasons I bring my computer with me, but it hasn't ...
