SCENTSY - The Hottest New Thing


So just last week I signed up to be a Scentsy consultant. Scentsy is brand new to Canada and has enourmous success in the United States. I'm excited to be a part of it here! I am super excited about it and so many people LOVE LOVE LOVE the product... I decided I wanted to try to do something on the side to see if I can be a stay at home Mom longer than we were planning.  These are way better than the jar candles we always seem to have on, and sometimes have been forgotten to be blown out.  Scentsy’s unique warmers use a low-watt bulb to slowly melt our specially formulated, highly fragrant wax, maximizing the fragrance time of each Scentsy Bar or Scentsy Brick. With no flame, soot, smoke or lead to worry about, the Scentsy system is a safe way to enjoy more than 80 delightful Scentsy fragrances.  There also aren't any phthalates in the wax bars just fragrence oils!!!

So check out my site and the Fall/Winter catalogue...these are great ideas for Christmas presents for people and there is something for everyone!  Check out my site to look at the catalog. There are also great hostess benefits for hosting a Scentsy party!  I am planning to host my first party soon and in time for delivery for Christmas.

Tuesday Tunes - Yes! The Backstreet Boys

I will openly and honestly admit I love this song...
The first time I heard it, I was like, that sounds like the Backstreet Boys, and voila, it was.

Jazzy Turns 3

We had a wonderful birthday party for Jazzy complete with balloons, friends, cake and gifts. We had a blast decorating the pumpkins and were grateful we decided not to carve them but decorate the outsides instead.

Everyone had a great time and thankfully everything went smoothly without any meltdowns from anyone, including the babies!

OH, and in case you are wondering.. You can actually purchase insurance on Hungry Hungry Hippo, in case you break it or the parts for 15 months! Yeah, I know, one of the oddest offers for insurance we have every had!

Tuesday Tunes - Stabilo

I have so many songs on my IPhone that sometimes when I hit shuffle I come across songs that I forgot I really like!! Which brings me to the song today..

Flawed Design by a Canadian Band Stabilo

I could not find a real video which allowed me to upload it, so this video obviously is not the proper video but the song certainly is!

Enjoy, but don't forget to check out my blog giveaway from October 19th...

Tuesday Tunes - 30 Seconds to Mars

Any "My So Called Life" fans out there?

I stumbled upon 30 Seconds to Mars four or five years ago... and I really loved their sound, and used a lot of their music to run to as it pumped me up and is fast paced..
The voice sounded familiar but it was not until I looked at one of their music videos that I realized who the lead singer is...
Yes the beautiful eyes boy from "My So Called Life" with Claire Danes.

This is the acoustic version of their song "The Kill"

Their sound is not for everyone but I do not think there is a woman who could deny the beauty of those baby blues...

Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously.... Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817), Pride and Prejudice, 1811

On a side note, what woman does not adore Mr Darcy? I know I certainly do, don't you??

Tuesday Tunes - The Watchmen

No not the movie, the BAND from Winnipeg!

They have a lot of great music and I started listening to them in high school but sad for everyone they are no longer together. However, it is another highly underrated Canadian band and another common favourite of my husband and I.

Hope you enjoy.. (I could not find a youtube video of the song so I made one and put it on an overlay of the New Moon trailer)

Family Friday -My Giggling Babies video

The video of my twins laughing at each other and sometimes at me makes me laugh every time I watch it. (just so you know I put on a music station in the background for the babies, they love music... though I can't say I always love the songs.. including the one playing)

So I am getting a theme going here..
I am going to try to post everyday to my blog and each day is going to have a theme to it. Mostly so it makes it easier for me to write my blog and hopefully fun for others to read!
Thursday are going to be thoughts..either from others or myself.
Today one of my favourite authors..

C.S. Lewis

"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."

Any thoughts????
