It’s already bad enough you have to share a space the size of a closet with a complete stranger, not to mention sharing your bathroom with up to a football team’s worth of alternately annoying, cloying, slow, or just plain inconsiderate floor-mates.  Why not try to make your cell into an oasis?  TV is a great escape.  You can watch movies, play games, or just set your tv to play back your awesome Reading Week photos.  Epic!

New baby on the way? These nursery essentials will ensure you're well prepared.

When expecting your first baby one might think that the nursery is very important as it’s the babies’ room, where the baby will spend most of its time. That’s not entirely incorrect, but really the nursery is important as that’s where you, along with the baby will spend a lot of time together. It’s not only supposed to be cozy for the baby, but also for you (mom or dad). There’s nothing worse than having to get up in the middle of the night to cuddle a little one because they are sick, and its pitch black and there’s nothing to sit on. A properly furnished nursery is of the utmost importance and below you can find what I consider to be the essentials for any well-equipped nursery.

Yet you spend about one-third of your life on your mattress.  It it comfortable?  A hand-me-down? A necessary evil?  Do you wake up feeling refreshed every day, or do you crawl painfully, and sleepily out of bed each morning?

Speaking of changing the clock and daylight savings ...

It's that time of the year...again. You ask: "What time is it?” It's that terrible time of year when we lose an hour of our precious sleep.


REMEMBER: this Sunday, the 9th of March at 2 A.M. we push it forward to 3 A.M...all of Canada except: Saskatchewan (except Denare Beach and Creighton), Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor, Dawson Creek and Creston in the East Kootenays of BC. 


I don't know about you, but I love my sleep. One of my most favourite feelings is the realisation that, when I wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning and look at my alarm clock, I can sleep for another hour or (if I'm lucky) hour and a half. Bliss. But how in the world would I ever experience that without my clock? Nowadays a clock is almost like an entrainment centre and there's something for everyone. You doubt that? Let's take a look...


Design & Create Your Own Stylish Master Bedroom

by Blogger on ‎02-17-2014 06:05 PM - last edited on ‎02-19-2014 11:57 AM by Blog Editor in Chief


For many of us, the Master Bedroom is the last room in the house to be fully decorated and furnished. This may be owing to the fact that it's probably the least likely room to be shown to our visitors, so maybe it's the safest room to leave undecorated when furnishing our homes. In any case, I have recently learned that February is Bedroom Month. Who knew? It probably has something to do with Valentine's Day. So maybe now's the time to finally finishing decorating the one room that we spend more time in than any otherthe master bedroom. If you'd like a few suggestions on just how to accomplish this goal, click through and read my blog! 


New Year’s Resolution: Get Organized

by Blogger on ‎01-13-2014 11:03 PM - last edited on ‎01-14-2014 04:00 PM by Blogger

Getting organized for 2014


When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, three things come to mind:

(1) Lose weight;

(2) Stop smoking, and

(3) Get organized.


Let’s focus on the third option. Are you ready to get organized for 2014? It’s time. Remember, organization doesn’t get completed in one fell swoop.  Think of it as a muscle that needs to be practiced and strengthened all year around.  When it comes to organization it’s not just our closet: there is also the kitchen, tax season, a garage filled with the unknown, kids going back to school, and then it’s winter holidays. My apologies in advance if I am making you nervous about those heavy tasks but let’s aim to find a simple solution that will bring you a new way of living.
