    Summer Splashin’ at Cedar Park Resort

    This summer has been a busy one for my family. We have spent endless hours enjoying the hot weather and bright sun in the Water. My Goal this summer for the family was to utilize the outdoors as much as possible. Since Winter is right around the corner. The kids really enjoy spending time outside especially spending time in the Water. So far for the summer we have been able to discover places we had no clue existed. Its amazing that we are quick to jump on a jet plane to go to a beach with blue water. When we have some of the most beautiful places here in Ontario. Today I am sharing with you a spot that we recently visited a few times  Cedar Park Resort.

    Cedar Park is located In Bowmanville Ontario, a  35-45 min car ride from where I live. The Grounds Resort is huge! it offers a large picnic area where you can bring your own travel BBQ and Food. There are also 3 Water Slides, a great splash pad if you have younger ones and the perfect Playground for the kids to run wild.If you enjoy Tennis and miniature Golf you also have that option too.  Its also the perfect family spot for Camping if you have and RV or just a day trip with the family.

    The Water area is beautiful, clean well kept and safe for the kids to play with. Every where I turned there were lifeguards strolling to ensure everyone was safe in the water area. The snack bar had some of the best burgers, fries and Funnel cake Fries you will ever taste all at reasonable prices. Speaking of prices there is an admission fee to get into the resort which you can check out here

    Overall the resort is definitely a fun filled day with the family. There is enough to do that you will not get bored. So get out and enjoy the rest of your summer. Tomorrow we are going to another special destination which I promise to share with you all!

    Happy Birthday Vanilla French Toast Recipe

    Happy Birthday Vanilla French Toast Recipe

    Happy Birthday Vanilla French Toast Recipe

    Last Thursday if you read my blog post you would know it was my husbands birthday. Now my husband is a very simple fellow and he appreciates gifts made with love. Since I know he loves my cooking I decided to surprise him with a special breakfast. When he arrived home from work Thursday morning. Now I normally make french toast for special occasions for my family. However I decided to make it even more special by using different bread and adding ingredients I normally don’t use. Since glitter isn`t edible lol I went with Sprinkles instead.

     

    Happy Birthday Vanilla French Toast Recipe

    Let me tell you, I made this as a test run the day before for lunch for the kids and they went wild. My son told me its better than the restaurant French Toast. That we get when we dine for breakfast. It was delicious I even made my own syrup/sauce from scratch as well. Normally when I make French Toast I use whatever bread loaf is available at the time. This time I went with a Texas loaf/ thick slice loaf of Bread. Keep in mind, the bread you use for French Toast makes a huge difference in the taste and fluffiness of the Bread.

    Happy Birthday Vanilla French Toast RecipeThe Syrup that I made was also the most delicious syrup as well. It complimented the texture and taste of the French Toast. Its safe to say that my husband and children really enjoyed this breakfast so much that they told me they`ve been dreaming about it. So its only fair that I share my recipe with you. I hope this becomes a breakfast staple in your home.

    Manicure Monday featuring Essie Play Date

    Manicure Monday featuring Essie Play Date

     

    Everyone loves a Play date whether you’re an adult or a child. I am totally obsessed with this weeks manicure Monday featuring Essie Play Date. This bright purple creme is the perfect shade for the summer. I have been wearing this manicure for over a week. And it still looks amazing! Although this shade was launched back in 2012 with the Go overboard collection its still a pretty hot number. I love purple anything so I was really excited to wear Play date for the week. Play date is a creme consistency but it also looks sort of like a Neon Creme. Its really bright but not so bright that it’s annoying to the eyes.

    I applied 2-3 coats just out of habit although you probably only need about 2 and like I said this is day 9 and I have very little wear on my tips. What are your favourite shades of polish to wear? Do you own play date? Let me know in the comments below!

    Mens Business Casual Styles By Moore’s Clothing for Men

    I think Business Casual clothing has made quite the trend over the last couple of years. When I think of the Corporate World I think of 3 piece Suits on Men and Skirts and Blazers on Ladies. Let’s face it, when you work at 9-5 or sometimes longer depending on your job. Comfortable clothing that can be worn in the office and after work is essential. I recently had the opportunity to work with Moore’s a Men’s clothing store. Which offers a wide selection of Suits, Jackets, Pants, Dress shirts and Ties and outerwear. These selections are also available to Plus sized and vertically blessed men as well.

    Moore’s was awesome enough to provide clothing for this style post in order to create Business Casual outfits for the office. Both outfits are very similar. The only difference is the jackets worn. Moore’s has a lovely selection of outerwear that is perfect for the fall season. You can go for a more polished look with Moore’s Outerwear. Or you can opt for a more relaxed yet professional look as you see here.

    For the first look I dressed my model in a Charcoal Baracuta Jacket. With a modern ribbed bottom,a plaid lining in a bomber style. The second Jacket is also the same style but in a Tan shade. The Baracuta Jacket retails for $199.99. It is an iconic jacket that can be dressed up for the work place or dressed down depending on the occasion. The designer of this Jacket is Joseph Abboud who is known for his well tailored custom Suits.

    The perfect way to take this look to a more Professional casual look is by pairing it with a great pair of Khakis from Dockers which retails for about $70 , Dress Shoes from Call it Spring which retail for $80.00 and a Dress shirt from Perry Ellis which was a gift as well. In this case a Tie is not needed if you are keeping the trend of a Business Casual look.

    Overall the outfit was pretty easy to put together. There are many ways that you can create Business Casual outfits. That can be worn to work or to meetings.

    Happy Birthday It’s your Birthday and Today we celebrate you!

    Happy Birthday It's your Birthday and Today we celebrate you!

    Happy Birthday It’s your Birthday and Today we celebrate you!

    It’s my lovely husbands birthday today. I didn’t do anything fancy. Everything I have planned comes from the heart. He’s a simple man so simple things mean more than a fancy party. Or extravagant gifts. On days like today,its a reminder. Some times we forget just how special members of our family are to us. I know for myself since I am a person of very few words. I don’t always share verbally just how much I appreciate them. So when birthdays come around I make sure to show just how special and how much I love them. I wrote a letter to my hubby this morning, just to show him what he means. How others feel about him and the impact he makes on our lives.
    Today we celebrate you!
     
    Babe, My Twinkle, My old man, Its your birthday! and because you are special to so many people. Today we celebrate you!
     
    To Me you are a gift from God to the children you are their number #1 Hero. You are kind, thoughtful, and always there when someone’s needs are in despair.
     
    As a man of God you take humble strides in deepening your faith in Christ. Your selfless love for giving back, speaks immense inspiration to those who you lend your advice. 
     
    So today as we celebrate you, we love and appreciate the hard work you do. Today is your birthday another year wiser, another year stronger. Today let’s celebrate how much we love and cherish you.
    Happy Birthday Babe

    No luggage for travel Save with Groupon and travel in style

    No luggage for travel Save with Groupon and travel in style

    No luggage for Travel Save with Groupon and travel in style

    At the end of August my family and I have plans to do a little bit of travelling around the city. The only issue is we don’t actually have Luggage that we own. Normally we borrow from family because the cost of Luggage can be outrageous. Especially if you don’t travel often which we don’t. There are many places you can shop for Luggage for a great price. Being that I hate to go shopping in stores. Online is my place to shopping done,without feeling overwhelmed with the crowd.

    It’s also more of a bonus to shop online because you end up getting special deals that are not normally available in stores. Groupon is one of those places you can consider as a one stop shop. You can find just about anything there. Luggage happens to be one of those items you can find a wide array of styles, sizes and great deal prices. Since there are 5 of us in my family we will be needing a minimum of 3 pieces. The plan is the 2 younger ones can share since their clothes are the smallest in size. My oldest can have her own and hubby and I will share.

    Currently Groupon has an amazing deal for 73% off Champs Hardcase Spinner 3 piece Luggage set. The full price was $709.97  and is now $189.99, Which means I can save just about $520 which is a huge savings for me! Within this set you get a carry on, which the kids will use. A 25″ upright which my oldest will have and a 29″ upright for my husband and I. Being able to find quality items or products online in a pinch is a savior. Especially when time doesn’t always work in your favour to get out and go shopping.

    Where are some of the places you like to shop? Are you a Groupon Fan? Let me know in the comments below.
