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).



The #CIAS2018 is Coming to Toronto #ad

In just a few days Toronto will be hosting the 2018 Canadian International Auto Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  Come February 16-25, 2018 the show floors will come alive!  This is a yearly show that I try to attend … always.

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

Every year the show is packed with exciting must-see events and/or features!  Most years I get invited to attend Media Day; however, this year I am unable to attend that day so I’ll be among the general attendees trying to get a prime spot.  No matter, it will be exciting nonetheless.

Who doesn’t feel the thrill when viewing the amazing selection of cars in the AutoExotica – Power & Passion?  The list of exotic cars is extensive and gorgeous; for example, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, and Pagani to name a few.  Breathtaking examples of fine automobiles that can get your heart pumping, without a doubt.

This year CIAS is celebrating 70 years of Porsche!  Pop in to see classic and historically significant Porsche models.  The “70 Years of Porsche” will be on display on Level 100 of the North Building, just to the west of Auto Exotica in a space that was occupied last year by “50 Years of Formula One in Canada.” The company history, a focus on key individuals in its evolution and nine of its most famous cars over the decades will make up the exhibit.

50 Years of Hot Wheels: Castrol Alley will feature a celebration of the worlds’ largest car manufacturer – Hot Wheels – and their 50th anniversary special presentation. An extensive kids build zone, merchandise sales area and giant cityscape Hot Wheels track along with some of the iconic full size Hot Wheels cars will engage and delight both young and young at heart on the 700 level in the South Building.

Stroll through the automotive history gallery and view several iconic brands.  They’re sheer decadence and elegance of yesteryear.  There will be 17 classic cars that will leave you breathless. One fine example is a 1925 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost.  This gallery is one of my favourite places to be!

Did you know that you could win $10,000 for racing eSports cars?! There will be daily competitions on the premiere racing game, Forza Motorsport 7.  The eSports Arena is located in Castrol Alley.  Don’t forget to click VIEW CHANNEL for daily live streaming of the competition! Competitions are open to gamers of all ages.  Good Luck to all!

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.
