As a parent, you do everything you can to ensure the safety of your children. You teach them to look both ways before crossing the street, not to leave with strangers, and what to watch for when they play outside. Do you also speak to them about fire safety?

In Ontario alone, 73 percent of structural fire losses are from residential fires. The latest statistics in 2016 show that there were 5,243 residential fires. Although that number has declined over the last few years, it is still high enough to raise concerns over fire safety.

A fire can break out in a home at any time, whether your children are there or not. It’s essential that they know what to do if they were around a fire. We have some fire safety tips from CrownFire to share with the whole family and to ensure their safety.

Putting my feet up after a long hard day! #review #herbalskindoctor

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I'm a mom who works full time during the day, a full time mom in the evenings and weekends, and then after hours do freelance work. I'm exhausted and in need of some TLC, and it's been quite a while since I've been pampered. It would be nice if I found time to go for a manicure and pedicure, but there doesn't seem to be enough hours in each day. Plus, I'd feel guilty spending the money on myself, when I could be saving it for something more important... like my daughters future education.

Recently I was contacted by a company that offers beauty products, and I was fortunate to get to test out their Exfoliating Foot Treatment from Herbal Skin Doctor. I was excited to test out the product, and waited until the little Munchkin went down for bed.

I opened the package, and fell in love with the smell of the product. I slipped the booties on... they felt cool and relaxing on the feet. I followed the rest of the instructions and sat back with my feet up wearing the booties. Okay, the instructions doesn't say that... but they did mention not to walk around while wearing them. They truly meant it when they wrote that, because if you do... you will most likely rip them. How do I know? The Munchkin woke up, and I had to run after her at one point still wearing them.
