I love Valentine’s Day more than anyone over the age of 12 probably should. But what’s not to love about a holiday that celebrates love? And chocolate? Nothing.
So I’ll be holding my usual Week o’ Love giveaway this week!
I’m happy to tell you that the first giveaway will be with Sugarwink!
Sugarwink is an online bakery based in Toronto that specalizes in all types of desserts, from butter tarts to cookies to cupcakes!
I tried the Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes. The cupcake was nice and moist, and the frosting wasn’t too sweet and tasted more like a whipped cream than a buttercream. It was good!
Classic flavours like red velvet and chocolate are available, along with special flavours like Blackberry Cabernet (Moist chocolate cake with Cabernet-soaked blackberries, topped with boozy blackberry buttercream) or Chocolate-Red Wine (A decadent chocolate cake made with a touch of red wine, topped with red wine reduction frosting.)
Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Sugarwink also makes gluten free and vegan cupcakes and offers free GTA delivery.
We’re giving you the chance to win a box of cupcakes to deliver to that special someone for Valentine’s Day! If you live in Toronto, enter below and you could win! Contest closes on Wednesday Feb.12.
It’s February and our skin has probably had enough of winter.
Get back into your skin’s good graces by using Bio-Oil.
So what is Bio-Oil? I knew that people used it to help get rid of stretch marks, but that’s all I knew about it.
It’s true that it was originally developed to help improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. But did you know that you can use it as a moisturizer, as a bath oil, or even a lip balm? I used it on my face and elbows to help lock in moisture.
Bio-Oil helps maintain smooth, supple, healthy-looking skin and helps you ward off common winter skin care problems like dry, chapped skin. It not only offers moisturizing benefits for the skin, it also helps build a barrier to protect against the drying effects of indoor heating, cold air and wind, and helps seal in moisture.
Bio-Oil wants to give one lucky ready a Bio-Oil prize pack!
The prize pack is the Bio-Oil Collection: 60ml bottle, 125ml bottle and 200ml bottle ($65 value)
As we enter a new year, there will be lots of shared meals with families and friends. It’s not always easy to prepare those meals- especially if you have young children.

These are recipes that are tailored specifically to families: they are simple, fast, easy-to-follow, and use ingredients that are readily-available at your local grocery store. Ceri and Laura unveil their tried, tested and true tricks for turning nutritious, sophisticated dishes into kid-friendly masterpieces, that will guarantee you success at meal-time, time and time again.
