New Moon Kitchen COOKIES: Yummy Giveaway!

At BlogHer 2010 in New York City, I received a ton of fabulous swag. So much so, that the night before I had to leave, I stayed up until 4 a.m. trying to pack everything back in my suitcase!

One of the yummmiest items I received were some New Moon Kitchen cookies. I was extremely happy when I was contacted by this company and asked to do a review and giveaway of their cookies.

New Moon Kitchen cookies are available in various stores throughout the United States, and are now being sold at Farm Boy in Ottawa.

Not only are these some of the best cookies I've ever had—they are also healthy! And safe for your children to bring to school! The cookies are allergy-friendly, made from 100% organic spelt flour, and are kosher, nut, dairy and preservative free.

When I first read that, I wasn't sure how yummy they would be. Let me tell you, after devouring the entire box of Oatmeal cookies, they are GREAT. My children loved them, too. In fact, I had to hide the boxes from them. I know, how awful of me!

Would you like to win some New Moon Kitchen cookies? Of course you do! Just leave me a comment below and I'll pick a winner randomly on November 1st. Ne Moon Kitchen will then send you a package of fresh, ready-to-devour cookies! We should all be off our sugar-high from Halloween by then, right?

New Moon Kitchen is an all-natural gourmet bakery that has been dedicated to making delicious and healthy baked goods since 1997. They carry eight varieties of cookies along with cakes, breads and their own brand of granola. Products can be found at fine food and health food stores across Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec, with plans of expansion across North America. I received a variety of cookies to review as part of my review and giveaway.

Cow and the Moon stationary giveaway!

You may not know this about me (or, maybe you do, since I tend to say a lot online!) but I LOVE stationary. I love paper and I love cards. I love receiving cards in the mail, and I especially love mailing out cards to people on their birthdays and for Christmas.

My friend Kelly has an awesome company called Cow and the Moon, and she makes super cute cards that I just cannot get enough of, including some very original invitation and birthday cards.

Seriously, look:

So cute, right? Kelly was so nice, she gave me an assortment of cards for myself, including the bird on a tree cards, the awesome cards, and the bubble thank you cards. My personal favourites are the itty bitties cards - the birch tree, the awesome itty bitties and my absolute favourite - the lovin' itty bitties.

Guess how awesome Kelly is? She's generously giving away an entire set to one of my lucky readers, too! (Thank you!)

And now all you have to do to win the set? Leave me a comment below! Do you love stationary as much as I do?

I'll randomly pick a winner on October 18th. Contest is open to US and Canadian residents!

Good Luck!

Children's Play Kitchen review from CSN Stores!

I have worked with CSN Stores several times before, and when they contacted me and asked me to do another review of one of their amazing products, I quickly said yes.

CSN Stores have literally thousands of amazing items for the house—everything from kitchen gadgets, to bar stools, to children's furniture and toys. CSN Stores include over 200 online stores where you can find literally anything you're looking for. Like handbags. And gorgeous furniture. And lamps.

I'm excited that I've been given the chance to review this amazing play kitchen:

My 2 and a half year old will love this! I think it will make a great Christmas gift from Santa, don't you?

SECRETARIAT: Family 4 pass giveaway!

When I was recently contacted by Walt Disney Studios Motions Pictures Canada to go the press screening of the movie SECRETARIAT, I was really excited because I'm a huge fan of both stars of the movie, Diane Lane and John Malkovich.

Based on the remarkable true story, SECRETARIAT chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

The movie is the story of a hero: a massive, chestnut-colored horse, known to his friends and family as Big Red. Everyone else calls him Secretariat. The movie is also about another hero—Penny Chenery Tweedy, whose faith in this horse galvanized the nation, revolutionizing horse racing and ultimately, changing her life's course completely.

I'm giving away a famiy four pass to SECRETARIAT for Wednesday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m. at Silver City, Gloucester.

Leave me a comment if you're interested in attending!

I'll pick a winner randomly tomorrow.
