When we moved into our forever home we knew that a mattress upgrade was necessary after having our other king mattress for 7 years. I was having awful sleeps on it & live with chronic back pain so a good mattress is an absolutely necessity for me. When we moved, we ended up staying in our guest bedroom using our old bed until we painted our master bedroom and did the little reno’s that were needed with wiring & whatnot. We couldn’t wait for our new mattress from Endy to come in! Since the mattress, sheets and pillows were gifted we ordered a new bed frame from Endy along with the mattress protector to feel complete! We also got our son a twin-sized bed frame. It is the easiest to set up! Just like the instructions say. Ten minutes or less.Read More

JUSU is a local company that I have fallen in love with over & over again for the last couple of years. They have expanded into much more than just a juice bar. When I decided to research more into JUSU and why it started it really hit me hard in the chest. Learning that the CEO, Bruce Mullen’s wife passed away from Breast Cancer and knowing Bruce was looking for ways to reverse his wife’s fatal illness. Jusu was created in honour of Charlene, his wife. JUSU's focus on striving for a zero-impact lifestyle continued with the realization that the cold-pressed organic juices was a nutrient gold mine. JUSU Body started in 2016, with pure, organic juice pulp-infused and plant-based skincare products to protect your body and the environment. I purchased a couple of their items when it launched and ended up buying my husband the shaving cream along with their ginger soap bar.Read More
I firmly believe that if we only started talking about saving for the holidays in November, it would already be too late. Why? Because one of the easiest ways to save on holiday gifts is to start early. If you are living paycheck-to-paycheck or are on a tight budget, preparing for holiday shopping & getting it done in advance can ensure your finances aren't completely thrown off course in December. Based on what I've learned from my own habits (and from observing people with far superior shopping skills), I think it's safe to say that if there are still leaves on the trees still everywhere when you’re starting your shopping for the winter holidays, you are more likely to ring in 2018 without credit card debt. Here are 5 thrifty tips to help you survive holiday shopping without wreaking havoc on your budget.Read More
