Happy February! The month of LOVE is here and we can’t way to spread some positive vibes, and kindness! This easy activity is a meaningful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with kids. We started this a few years ago, and our kids love finding a new message each morning. It’s a great way to start the day on a positive note, build confidence for your little ones, and fill their bucket each day! The best part is that the notes are written from the heart and celebrate and recognize all of the beautiful, unique things about your child. I hope you’ll join us and create daily Valentine’s affirmations for kids and spread some extra positive love this month! xo

Bluicing with Breville: Smoothie Bowls
Smoothie bowls are a family favourite around here! We first tried Açaí bowls in Hawaii and became obsessed with them. They aren’t as popular where we live, so we’ve started making our own. I’m excited to partner with Breville Canada and bring you this delicious berry-packed smoothie bowl recipe using the 3X BluicerTM Pro.
