Break the Guinness Record – Family Day Fun #ad

For Family Day fun, why not break a record?  I’m referring to one of the many Guinness World Records!

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

The Guinness World Records has become a household name and the world leader for keeping world records.  As a young girl, I remember playing with my friends pretending to set world records.  We’d take turns at being the “World’s” strongest, “World’s” fastest, “World’s” slowest … you get the idea.  The sad part about it is we never actually thought we could hold any kind of record.  The truth of the matter is you can!

Since Family Day is coming (so will March Break) to Ontario on Monday, what do you plan on doing with your kids?  For me, as a mom, living in Toronto became difficult to enjoy.  After visiting all the standard locations that are geared for fun activities for kids, and then visiting them all over again and again!  Seriously?  How many times can you visit the same place without getting bored?  I don’t know about your family; however, for mine it didn’t take long.

It become especially hard when I financially no longer could afford all of the outings too!  I had to become clever with what activities to suggest.  They had to be fun and economical … and definitely interesting too!

Luckily, the Guinness World Records publishes a record-breaking annual book that is filled with new images, facts and features.  Their most recent book is now out. I recommend looking at the record-breaking world around us in Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff. Find out more at enough, you and your kids can try to break current world records!  Why not spend Family Day doing just that?!

  1. Apply online.
  2. Get the guidelines.
  3. Attempt your record.
  4. Submit your evidence.

Sounds simple?  Perhaps, but at least you’ll all have fun together trying!

You’re welcome.  If you succeed, and even if you don’t, please return here and tell me about all the fun and about your entire  experience(s).



Skechers Boots for Autumn and Winter #SKECHERSstyle #ad

Winter doesn’t want to leave, just yet.  Reality is that winter really hasn’t been that bad!  Aside from the days (literally days) of large snowfalls, I’ve used the same boots each time I step out.  They’re my autumn boots!  I know it’s hard to believe but my autumn boots can be used in the winter too.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

To be completely truthful, I definitely prefer a tall boot that’s warm and even waterproof when it’s snowing and/or raining.  However, when it’s just a regular winter day; even with a little snow already on the ground, my short autumn boots fit the bill!  They’re warm enough, definitely stylish, and super comfortable.  Now, why am I telling you this?  SKECHERS can get you ready to enjoy all that autumn, winter, and even spring have to offer!

For years now, you’ve learned how much I love SKECHERS.  It’s my love for SKECHERS that allowed me to accept collaborating with SKECHERS.  Today, it’s both love and pride for the brand that allows me to continue to collaborate with them.  It’s the excitement I feel that makes me want to share my SKECHERS experiences with family, friends, and online friends alike.

I’m very happy to see that over the last several years SKECHERS has increased their product line.  Style, comfort and innovation have found a way to live harmoniously among all the different styles and looks within the SKECHERS family.  There’s literally something for everyone!  The brand is extremely popular but, for me, that’s not what’s important … what is important is quality, fit and comfort.  SKECHERS has it all and more.

In fact, SKECHERS has cornered the market when it comes to comfort.  I am beyond happy each and every time I step into any of my SKECHERS shoes or boots.  I am equally as happy sharing how much I love SKECHERS with you.  If you haven’t tried on a pair of SKECHERS please do so.  You can find SKECHERS Canada-wide, in footwear retail stores.  I know you’ll fall in love with them!  What’s going to be hard is only picking one pair.
