For the past few months, we have been slowly changing up the look of our bedroom. You see, hubby and I are avid collectors of things; mostly Star Wars, Transformers, and other movie memorabilia type collectibles.

Having kids and a small space, we built some shelves and dedicated our room to our entertainment and our hobbies, two things that make us happy. 

The last time we went canvas print shopping online, we ordered family prints. This time, it's a Transformers image my hubby just loved. He wanted it for the longest time but could never figure out how to get it from the phone to the wall without printing it out himself. 

Canvas Factory is a simple and inexpensive way to get your favourite prints your way! They have different styles of prints, ours is going to be a 18x12inch (45x30cm) size print of a G1 Transformers image featuring all of our favourite characters. This is something he will like now and can pass on to our son one day. 


It's easy to get started. You can sign up or you can just order as a guest. Choose which kind and size of canvas you want, add and adjust your image, select any extras, add it to your cart!

In the cart, you can choose your shipping and payment methods, billing address and also add any coupon or discount codes you may have! Free shipping on orders over $132! Check out Canvas Factory today! 

I can't wait to get our print! Follow me on social to see when it arrives! 

Stay tuned on the #AMEblog Instagram to find out how you can win your own custom canvas from Canvas Factory!

Fans of the Disney Junior hit show Fancy Nancy will LOVE the newest toys and dolls available from Jakk's Pacific! 

Ballerina Fancy Nancy comes all dolled up and ready for her next performance. She is 18" tall and fully articulated with posable limbs from hands down to her feet for some real dancing action! Play with Nancy to make her jet through the air, perform her special ballet moves and even take an ending bow. 


I love this doll because she doesn't take batteries or make any noise and to me, those dolls are the best ones. They allow little kids to enjoy them without them losing the magic when the batteries die. I love how precious the outfit is, her face looks cute and her hair is just gorgeous! 


This doll is a Walmart exclusive but you can always check out the official Fancy Nancy website for more fun books, games, and toys! 

*Thank you, Jakks Pacific, for sending us a free doll for our review!*

The school year seems to have just flown right by and we are literally only a couple of weeks left until summer vacation! I know the kids are more excited than I am! 

As the kids get older, life doesn't quiet down any. Summer is no exception. Just because the kids are off school doesn't mean life stops there! We still have to do our daily jobs and all that fun stuff! 

When we do have some downtime, it's always fun to break one of our many board games out of the game cupboard and have some family time together. 

Goliath Games brings us some awesome new games for the whole family on those relaxing summer evenings or rainy days:


Hydro Strike (2+ Players) In this head-to-head pinball game, you’ll need fast flipping fingers to shoot the ball into your opponent’s goal. The first player to score 5 times wins!


Shark Bite (2-4 players, ages 4 and up). Snag the fish and be the winner, but if the shark jumps, you’ll be his dinner. This battery-free game will have kids hooked at first bite! 


Charades for Kids (3 + players, ages 4 and up). This game is great for the whole family to play together as they try to guess the charade before time runs out!

There comes a time in the evenings when even parents need to have a little fun "sans kids"; Goliath Games has something for the parents too! 


Stuff Happens: Parenting Edition (2+ players, ages 13 and up.) Is discovering your kid’s secret booger wall BETTER or WORSE than a failed homework assignment that you helped with? Rank these funny and relatable parenting moments in our new Stuff Happens: Parenting Edition card game. If our Misery Index agrees with you, you get to keep the card. Correctly rank 10 scenario cards to win! This expansion can be played on its own, but if you’re ready for a diaper change, mix these babies in with any Stuff Happens deck!

Thank you to representatives of Goliath Games for gifting us with some real summer fun! :)

Thank you Stadler Form for providing us product for this review!

Summer is closer than we think; we are almost at the end of May and I hear myself discussing summer vacation with my better half. During the hot summer months, we like to have our A/C's set up and make sure everyone is comfortable on days we stay in and also especially at bedtime. We do this by creating air flow with the A/C and fans. 

We were just talking about purchasing a new fan for our bedroom when I was offered a special fan from Stadler Form called "Tim". 


Tim isn’t your typical fan; although he can be plugged into the wall like a traditional fan, he can be plugged into an external battery via USB for easy mobility and placement not having to worry about finding an electrical outlet on the opposite end of the room you need the fan plugged in. The external battery is NOT included, the one pictured is my own. 

Tim is the perfect size for a smaller space like our smallish bedroom. He’s also flexible with his fan ring being able to be rotated to the perfect angle we need. He provides excellent airflow from easy breeze to full power. Tim comes with his own adapter and USB cable, you’ll have to provide your own battery pack but anyone with a smartphone most likely has at least one; we have several. 

I know, I’m such a geek when it comes to appliances and tech! This fan is what I have been looking for! Check out my demo video! 


Tim goes for $69.99 and you can find him (and other awesome fans for your home) on the Stadler Form Website

We received complimentary dolls to facilitate this post. All opinions and comments are those of the author. 
New #SNAPSTAR fashion dolls from YULU are unlike other fashion dolls we’ve seen lately; here’s why: 

Lola, Aspen, Dawn, Yuki, Echo and Izzy each have a distinct personality and style. But here’s what makes this squad completely unique: #SNAPSTAR dolls are fully articulated and posable beyond almost any other fashion doll on the market. I love how the boxes look like smartphone boxes!


Each doll comes fully dressed to impress with her own outfit, cellphone, purse, and other accessories. The dolls clothes AND removable wigs are interchangeable so the fashion fun never stops! Oh! You can also get extra fashion outfits to complete the collection. 


Once you have your dolls set up and dressed up, use the unique #SNAPSTAR stand and green screen (included) for literally countless poses and pics, without seeing the stand! Customize the dolls with dozens of customizable styling options for hair, makeup, accessories, scenes and more with the free #SNAPSTAR Studio app (available on iOS and Android).


You can turn your doll into a social media star as you pose, snap and share photos using hashtag #SNAPSTAR on Instagram.

#SNAPSTAR dolls are beautiful and fun to play with. They are created for tweens and I can see why; not only because of the social media aspect but they are delicate and not made for rough play. These dolls would make a great addition to anyone's doll collection. 

#SNAPSTAR dolls and fashion packs are sold exclusively at Walmart

Spring is in full swing with melted snow, sunnier days and warmer weather; some of us are already thinking up our next patio get together despite the odd rainy day. After all, it IS a great season to celebrate, no matter what the weather. 

Whether your celebrating upcoming Mother's Day, Father's Day or "just because", Hamilton Beach has you covered with a great selection of tools to help make your job a whole lot simpler. 

You don't have to go far to get that outdoor grill taste at home with the new Hamilton Beach Family Size Indoor Grill! 


Rain or shine, let the good times roll with this handy electric grill geared to feed a family of 8 on a non-stick grill! Cooking BBQ meal has never been easier; the handy preheat light lets you know when it's hot enough to grill and food is cooked in 10 minutes or less. It also has a grease tray so the fat drips away from the food making it both a cleaner and healthier way to cook! The tray is removable and dishwasher safe, too! 

Sleek and compact Hamilton Beach Indoor Grill

Perfect size for a small kitchen!

Handy Grease Tray

I cannot wait to break this baby in on our next family BBQ dinner! You can find this where Hamilton Beach small appliances are sold and on the official Hamilton Beach website!

We love our fur babies but sometimes one of them can get a little out of hand when it comes to “singing the song of her people” (aka barking)! 

We’ve introduced a harmless and simple way to remind her when she’s barking too much with the PetSafe Spray Bark Collar! 

The collar fits most dog sizes and is adjustable. It looks a little like a shock collar but it’s not at all; I would never use one of THOSE on my furbabies, that’s just cruelty! 



This one simply spritz’ a little unscented mist when the dog barks too loud or beyond one or two ruffs! It’s rechargeable and refills can be bought at most pet shops or online! Oh, and it doesn’t go off with background noise if one of the other dogs is the barking culprit! 



It seems to be something that can work very quickly; within a couple of days, we noticed a change in Sofis bark patterns without her even having to wear the collar. She's beginning to understand when to bark and when it’s unnecessary.



Excellent device for bark training your furry friend so you can all live in peace and quiet...sometimes! Check out the PetSafe Spray Bark Training Collar on the official PetSafe Canada website



Note: this device is NOT harmful to animals; our dog didn't mind it and it actually worked to help her know when and when not to bark!
