Beddington's: Ottawa finest bedding store!

A few months ago, after my apperance on A Morning talking about blogging, I was contacted by a local bedding company, Beddington's.

Beddington's is one of Ottawa finest bedding stores and every location in Canada sells amazing bedding sets, duvet covers, bed sheets, and so much more. Beddington's has a few stores in Ottawa, and in Toronto, as well. A new location is opening up in Kingston, too. My family is mostly familiar with the south end location, and my family has been shopping there for years!

I was given this amazing 100% silk duvet for a review, and it's so amazing, some days I don't even want to get out of bed! Beddington's has TONS of amazing duvet covers for you to choose from—there really is something here for everyone, no matter what your taste. All I know is, I had the hardest time deciding on which duvet cover to get for myself!

Do yourself a favour—if you're in the market for new bed sheets, a new duvet cover, or a brand-new duvet? Check out Beddington's. You have my word that you will find exactly what you're looking for!

$50 for YOU!

Now that the nicer weather has finally arrived (let's not talk about all the rain we've been having, okay?) it's time to do some spring cleaning—in your closet!

That's right. You need to put aside a few hours to organize your clothes, and bring out all those pretty summer dresses again. Also, make some room, because you're going shopping!

I'm giving away a $50 Mark's Gift Certificate, just for YOU! Last year, Mark's (formerly Mark's Work Warehouse) smartened up many of its stores and introduced a refreshed brand with new clothes and shoes in styles everyone could fall in love with. (Even me!)

I was invited (along with other members of the media and bloggers) to Mark's last year and I was treated to a Marks-over—make-up and hair people were on hand to pamper us and we got to pick out a brand new outfit to wear for a professional photo shoot.

I had a blast, and was completely surprised that I actually loved my outfit—skinny jeans, sparkly top, sweater, and awesome boots. I even got to keep the entire outfit!

Mark's is also having an awesome reStyle contest righ tnow, too, and you can win $5,000 in prizes—check it out!

Now it's time for you to discover Mark's! If you want to go shopping at Mark's, just leave me a comment below!

Bonus entry: Like Mark's on facebook!

Contest open to Canadians only.

Good Luck, everyone. I'll pick a winner randomly on May 25th!

Easy recipes for YOU!

As a Life Made Delicious Connector, I have access to dozens of amazing and easy recipes all the time.

There really is no excuse for why I'm not spending more time in the kitchen! Now that summer is just around the corner, I'm looking forward to trying out a few new things this weekend.

Things that are easy enough for even ME to make!

Like this super yummy fruit trifle - a perfect desert for the entire family, and really, how could I do this wrong, right?

Another recipe I'm going to try? The Crispy Chicken Caesar Salad.

My boys love eating salad, and my oldest son LOVES caesar salads! I'm going to get him to help out in the kitchen, too.

Another easy recipe I'm dying to try? The Barbecued Pork Tenderloin... doesn't this just look so yummy?

I'm constantly amazed by all the great new recipes I find on Life Made Delicious. If you're looking for a great website to find tons of awesome recipes, now you know where to go!

You're welcome!
