Signatures Restaurant Offers Fine Dining at InterContinental Toronto Yorkville


Did you know that you can enjoy a first class meal at Signatures Restaurant located inside the InterContinental Toronto Yorkville? You absolutely can! I was joined by Lena, Stephanie and Andrea representing our  FamilyTravelCA group, and we were treated to one of the most artistic and delicious meals ever, courtesy of Signatures and Chef Andrew. One of the appetizers created for us by Chef Andrew was Signatures Radish Salad. It's almost too pretty to eat, but I did and it was divine. The Fresh Watermelon and Beet Salad was a special treat. I would never have thought to combine the two, but I intend to try and make it myself (although with much less flare) now that I have had the chance to enjoy it. I didn't try the Signatures Foie Gras shown below, but judging by the ...

Win a $100 Visa Gift Card {Canada}

visa checkout stores

When I take the kids to the movie, I try to keep it as simple as possible. We choose our movie at home, I purchase the tickets ahead of time and pick them up using my smartphone when I get to the theatre. When you take three kids to a movie theatre, you end up having to help them juggle their drinks, snacks, tickets and 3D glasses while getting to your seats (or at least that is my experience). I welcome any tools that will make it easier. Visa Checkout makes it easy to get our tickets right from my home computer. Simply register your Visa credit cards or visa gift cards on the site, and you can make your purchases just by signing in. I registered a Visa gift card on the site (make sure you register your gift card on the gift card site first, or it won't work when you try to make a ...

Win a Tide #TurboTime Giveaway ARV $62 {Canada} #PGMom


Did you know many Canadians now own, or are planning to purchase, a high-efficiency washing machine? These machines have more computer sensors than the first spaceship sent to the moon – pretty cool right!? As these futuristic washers become the norm in homes across the country, consumers should consider using a detergent that’s specially formulated for HE washing machines. I am one of the few who haven't made the switch yet, only because my old washer and dryer are still working really well despite being around twenty years old. When the time comes, I will be moving to HE appliances. This month, P&G Fabric Care is introducing a new industry standard in High Efficiency (HE) Detergents – Tide HE Turbo – to deliver the best clean from a HE washer. A first-of-its-kind, the HE-Turbo ...

Housie Graphic

We bought our new construction semi-detached just over ten years ago. We had the pleasure of selecting all of the interior, and even though I am ready to change most of it, I love that we were able to do that. The kitchen was a big draw to the house, since many of the houses we looked at had very small kitchens with limited cupboard space. Take a look at my housie. Is the #kitchen the heart of your #home? #housie A video posted by Sheri McDonald (@kidsumers) on Apr 6, 2015 at 7:37am PDT I was so proud of our home when we bought it, and I still am today. We can gather to talk about our homes and what is special about each of them at the #housie twitter chat on Thursday, April 23rd at 8pm EDT. As always, we will have some amazing prizes! There are six $100 ...
