The AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray is Perfect! #anthrodesk #backtoschool #ad

The Canadian made AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray fits the bill perfectly!  [Found here: https://www.anthrodesk.ca/laptop-table-tray-for-desk-or-bed.html or here: https://www.amazon.ca just look for “Foldable Laptop Table with Height Adjustable Legs and Tilting Tray” ]

With all the back to school and back to work buzz right now I thought that I should share with you my latest MUST HAVE item!  It’s the perfect laptop table tray that can serve everyone’s purpose.  It’s great for everyone (SERIOUSLY):  professionals, students, children, and seniors!  This simple laptop table tray is exactly what I was looking for.  I love how much more comfortable I am when writing my posts; quite simply, I can easily move from standing to sitting, from the office to the couch, and I can take it with me to the backyard or to the park!  When I need to store it away I can easily do so by folding the legs down flat.  I like how sturdy it is and how convenient it is too.

Students and children alike will discover how useful this foldable laptop table is.  It’s an amazing item to gift to your College-bound student, and a sweet table for children to use as a reading table or a table to colour on at eye level!  Remember laying stomach down on the living room rug as a child?

My mom is no longer with me; however, if she were alive and still at the long term care residence I could see this foldable laptop table being put to good use there too!  A comfortable ergonomic laptop table; such as this, could be used at craft-making or snack time.

The many uses are limitless!

Key Points:

  • MULTIPURPOSE – Use as a laptop workstation, a standing desk for office work, a TV tray for snacking, a laptop for relaxing in bed, a couch desk, a workstation in a park, or even a book/tablet stand.
  • HEALTHIER WORKING – When used in conjunction with a regular desk it enables you to work while standing; it eases tension caused by long hours sitting in the workplace.
  • EASY TO USE – Two auto-lock buttons on each side easily enable quick changes in height (adjustable from 23 cm to 31 cm). In addition, two clamps may be used to adjust the surface angle (from 0-30°).  
  • Supports up to 60 LBS, will not wobble or sway, provides a secure 52cm x 30cm stable platform for your laptop, notebook, tablet, or monitor.
  • LIGHT BUT STURDY – It can fold flat for convenient storage, is light enough to carry around, and can fit in many bags! It’s made of 100% high quality engineered wood which is environmentally friendly, strong and durable.
  • PORTABLE – You can work anywhere, simply fold the desk flat and you have your on-the-go ergonomic workstation ready.
  • SAFE – There is a ledge on the bottom which keeps your laptop safe while table is tilted.
  • NO ASSEMBLY – The best part is there’s no assembly required!

With limitless uses, I can foresee having a tough time using it in my home.  Why?  I would probably take up a lot of my time trying to hunt it down!  Will I find it in my daughter’s room?  Will I find it in the office?  Will it be left in the car after having been taken elsewhere?  I just know that everyone will want to use it.

Fortunately it’s not an expensive item at all.

Lastly, the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray will change how you live and work.  By reducing the amount of sitting in the same position for long periods of time you can improve your health, your productivity, and your creativity.  Research says that sitting for excessively long periods of time is a risk factor for early death, diabetes, obesity, and depression.  Sitting for long periods is actually killing us!

Be wise and take steps to ensure you change your position often.  This is exactly why the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray is not only useful for day-to-day use but also for your health.

It’s a great find and why I knew I had to share it with you!

THE Annual Bittersweet Sign That the End of Summer is Near. #LetsGoToTheEX #CNE #EX #ad

It’s THE annual bittersweet sign that the end of summer is near.  It’s a Toronto tradition that we always look forward to.  No need to ask me twice; I’m ready!  I’ve been going to the EX since I was little … we’re talking 5 decades !!

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

With so much to see and do at the EX, it’s difficult to pinpoint a single favourite activity.  You can pick from:

  • rides
  • games
  • shows
  • shopping
  • food
  • and so much more!

I always find the time to see the animals.  Who doesn’t enjoy watching the alpacas, llamas, piglets, chicks, calves, goat, and even turkeys?  I’ve learned to have patience while parents with their small children have rushed to get the best spot to look at the animals and potentially touch them.  I think (almost can guarantee) that I am more of a child than most children when it comes to animals.  I LOVE animals!  I could watch them all day long, and I always wish I could touch them.

Shopping at the EX is always fun.   When I take a little time to shop, I always try to do a walk-through the Shoppers’ Market, the Arts, Crafts & Hobbies Pavilion, the Marketplace, and the Warehouse Outlets [this is where I can do some serious damage to my wallet!].  There are many deals to be had … and many new products to discover too.

This year’s ‘Food to Try’ List is long and adventurous.  I’ll admit I’m not too adventurous when it comes to my food.  So while I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them pass in front of my eyes, I didn’t actually try any.  I’m not brave enough and I’m not embarrassed to say it.  I look forward to hearing my daughter’s opinion of them!  She definitely doesn’t have a problem trying new food; I can envision her trying a good chunk of this list.

2019 CNE New Foods:

Frozen Cookie Dough Spaghetti, Wasabi Spice Cream, Pickle Pizza, Pickle Lemonade, Tokyo Street Dog, Spicy Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bacon Burger, Pho Fries, Unicorn Funnel Cake, Maple Bacon Churropop, Cheesecake Curds, Peeping Pierogi burger, BBQ Chicken Hearts, Mushroom Coffee, Japanese Soufflé Pancakes, Japanese Soufflé Pancakes, Funnel Cake Chicken Sandwich, Smouldering Fire & Ice Bowl, Gluten-Free Viet Burrito, Deep Fried Avocados Tacos, Dragon Fruit Lemonade üsensation, and Haggis Macaroni & Smoked Cheese

What’s special to note, this year, is that you can look forward to the 70th annual Canadian International Air Show!  It’s FREE with admission. You can read all about the CIAS one the CNE‘s website; however, the essential point, as CNE explains: “It’s now the largest and longest running Air Show in Canada with more a million people throughout the Greater Toronto Area watching the spectacular aerial display each year.”   In my opinion, it’s the Grand Finale to the Finale of the CNE and of summer.

There are only a few days left to visit the CNE so stop reading this post and GO !!!

Once again, Thank You CNE for sending me!

What a Wafer! #LoackerCanada #FaceOfLoacker #PureGoodness #giveaway #ad

Recently I received a package of pure goodness.  This pure goodness was unexpectedly yummy, and now I have a newfound love for a great wafer!

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

As a child, I had been given wafers to eat as a snack, and as a dessert.  However, I NEVER enjoyed them.  It didn’t matter if they were chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry because they all tasted bland and paper-like.  This is the truth and I can’t say otherwise.

You can imagine how concerned I was to have been offered to review wafers!  It was the variety of flavours that peaked my interest so I agreed to give them a try.  Am I ever happy that I did!!

I was introduced to a brand that has been in existence since 1925 … I actually had never heard of them … over the years, Loacker grew from a small regional confectioner to the globally known brand of today.  In my opinion, Loacker doesn’t just make wafers!  Oh it’s much more like premium pastry.  [Visit https://www.loacker.com/ca/en/company/about-us/ to learn more about Loacker.]

Read on to learn more.  You can be the judge and then enter my giveaway to try and get some yummy goodness into your hands as well!!!

Are you a chocolate lover?  You are in for a flavourful experience that you’ll never forget!  Loacker’s Double Chocolate wafers are IT!  Loacker covered their popular wafer classics in delicious chocolate. Underneath, there are light, crispy wafers and two layers of melting cream filling. Classic Chocolat is available in two delicious varieties. Chocolat Napolitaner is covered with the finest milk chocolate and smooth cream filling made with exquisite Italian hazelnuts, freshly roasted on-site at Loacker. Chocolat Dark Noir Fondente is enrobed with dark chocolate and a refined dark chocolate cream filling. Who can resist?  Not I.

Fancy vanilla?  Loacker’s vanilla is elevated and refined.  In fact, during product manufacturing Loacker continues to cut their vanilla pods by hand.  “The precious Planifolia Bourbon vanilla pods from Madagascar are the only type of vanilla used for the production of Loacker products. This top quality species is known for its purity without additives.”  … and with no addition of flavourings.

Loacker is dedicated to excellence:  no colourings, no preservatives, and no hydrogenated fats.

Don’t think for a moment that their flavour options end there.  No way!  There are too many flavours for me to list and describe.  Their list of flavours, combinations, and shapes can be found at https://www.loacker.com/ca/en/products/product-category/relcategory/world-of-wafers/

What I can say is, from the selection of flavours that were sent to me I found it difficult to pick a favourite.  I was stupefied to discover that I loved them all!  I will even say that I now love wafers … but only if they’re Loacker!  Total YUM!!

Celebrating Pure Goodness and Canadian Classics:

To celebrate the best ingredients nature has to offer, Loacker has created ten recipes inspired by iconic Canadian desserts and Canada’s favourite flavours. These indulgently delicious recipes are easy to prepare, so that Canadians can share a moment of pure goodness and serenity with their loved ones. 

  • Nanaimo Bars: Chocolate wafer biscuits are flaked into the crust of this quintessential west coast dish, adding even more of the flavour Canadians know and love!
  • Maple Sugar Bars: Canadian through-and-through, this recipe adds maple and a light wafer crunch to the classic tarte au sucre.
  • S’mores Brownies: Inspired by summer at the cottage, layers of marshmallow, crisp wafer biscuits and chocolate combine for this take on a nostalgic treat – no campfire necessary!
