Mommy Stuff


I was recently contacted by an amazing local company called WagonBags.  I had no idea what they were or how they functioned. I hoped onto social media to check them out. What an amazing product. 

Who else has about a dozen reusable bags for their groceries and yet somehow every time you go to the store they are sitting at home in a closet or full of stuff? Guilty as charged. When I learned about these new re-usable bags called WagonBags, I could not wait to get a set. I anxiously waited for my shipment to arrive and was excited to do some groceries with my new bags.

WAGONBAGS is a set of 4 reusable grocery bags. 2 smaller ones are insulated for any frozen or cold items. 2 other bags are larger to hold all your boxes and dry products.  It is environmental-friendly smart and organized solution for family shopping.

I had set out to Walmart to pick up some food along with other household items and I knew these bags were going to be  perfect for my shopping trip. Did my shopping, packed my bags at the checkout into the appropriate ones and off I went. It was so easy and covenient. I snapped a few photos of my shopping day. These bags are must have!

My yogurt, frozen corn stayed cold in the insulated bags while my dry items fit perfectly in the other bags along with some clothing. What I love the most is how they roll up nicely and fit in my trunk for my next grocery trip.

Here is what one party goer had to say about about their daughter’s party at Kreative Memories:

” We held our daughter’s 6th birthday party at Kreative Memories studio. We had 10

girls with a photo booth portion and a princess also provided entertainment. It is a

great open space. The kids had a lot of fun. Lots of room to dance, eat and have a

good time. The photo booth was great because the girls were able to dress up and as

parents we were able to make a great album as a memory from her birthday with all

the pictures that were taken of girls with the photo booth. We strongly recommend

Tina from Kreative Memories as well as her studio to hold your little one’s party.

Lots of different various birthday themes could be done in this space. Thank you

Tina for a wonderful party!” Sophie P

Named in Kirkus Reviews “BEST BOOKS OF 2016”

Dear West Islanders!

I hope you’ll check out my new Dr. Seuss-inspired book about the human body, “You’re Amazing! (Starring You)”. I did everything I could to make it educational and fun, and to infuse it with all the rhythm and rhyme of classic Seuss.

It’s available in-store at Chapters Pointe-Claire, and online.

If you like it, please help me grow by sharing your ratings and reviews online!

I hope you enjoy!


Praise for “You’re Amazing! (Starring You)”

“Louie the Lumin and his two young friends explain some of the human body’s magnificent highlights in this Seussian rhyming book… The wonderful rhymes scan beautifully, making this a delight for reading aloud… the colorful characters and settings accurately capture the whimsy of Dr. Seuss’ work without undermining the biology hidden in the charming rhymes.”
