It's Friday!!

Happy Friday, everyone! Here a list of just a few things that have brought a smile to my face… but truth be told, really don't warrant an entire post. 

1- I've spoken about this before but if you're an online shopper and  haven't jumped on the eBates bandwagon- you're totally missing out. There's no catch... really no catch… and look what I got in the mail both from eBates and

It seriously is free money!

2- I received these lovely belated cards from my brother, sister in law and baby nephew amidst all the mail- In Canada our mailbox is down the street together with everyone else's mailboxes and in this weather I  didn't check it for a couple weeks. Nothing makes me smile like an unexpected card or package….especially from some of my favourite people. I can't wait for them to come to Canada in June for a WHOLE year- my brother got a fellowship! We are beyond excited.

3- We are seriously thinking about a Disney cruise this summer. We are not huge cruisers but they come very recommended. Any advice, internet friends?

4- If you have a young kid and want to teach them the importance of respecting and playing with all kids--- a life lesson we all need, Odd Velvet is the book for you-- 
Book Synopsis- Velvet is odd. Instead of dolls that talk and cry, Velvet brings a milkweed pod for show and tell. She wins the class art contest using only an eight-pack of crayons. She likes to collect rocks. Even her name is strange-Velvet! But as the school year unfolds, the things Velvet does and the things that Velvet says slowly begin to make sense. And, in the end, Velvet's classmates discover that being different is what makes Velvet so much fun.
It's a wonderful read! 

5- Who here loves Makeup Forever. Their pigments and colours last… well forever… not quite but longer than others out there. I bought this amazing gel eyeliner from them for a smoky eye and so far it does not disappoint. Does not smudge excessively like the regular pencil but also doesn't give that hard line that liquid eyeliner does. 

 And there you have it. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
