Cancerous Coffee, OMG Orlando and Child Benefits?

It’s been a full week of my new schedule which includes some major stories that have happened over the past week. Among highlights was in the video below:

As an update, I received details about the recent increase on the Canada Child Benefit effective as of July 2016.

What is the Canada Child Benefit?

The Canada Child Benefit (CCB) is a monthly tax-free payment for families with children under the age of 18.  It will replace the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB), National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS), and the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) that families currently receive.

Who can receive CCB?

Families with children under 18 are generally eligible to receive the CCB.

How much CCB will I get?

There are two main factors that determine how much you will receive:

  • the number of children in your care; and
  • your family net income

You can get up to:

  • $6,400 per year ($533 per month) for each child under the age of 6
  • $5,400 per year ($450 per month) for each child aged 6 to 17
  • an additional $2,730 per year if your child qualifies for the disability amount

Families with less than $30,000 in family net income will receive the maximum benefit.

As adjusted family net income increases, the benefit is reduced until it reaches zero.

To find out details go to the  Canada Revenue Agency for your benefits calculator.

I will be resuming the Non-Morning People News on YouTube Live from Monday to Friday at 10am EST along with some great new videos.

If you have a story you want me to discuss let me know!

Have a fabulous weekend!


A Full Week of Fun and Robbie G & Moka Only

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I had the pleasure of attending a great underground hiphop concert with Moka Only & Robbie G.  These 2 artists never cease to get me moving on the dance floor, Robbie G has a smooth lyrical flow that is all heart.  You can feel his passion for hip hop through his energy on stage.

Moka Only has a soulful style that represents why I fell in love with hiphop music.  He kept the crowd jumping and my stiletto heels tapping.  He would bust out in a freestyle randomly and interacted with the audience like we were all just hanging out.  A very down to earth artist and performer like a breath of fresh air.

You can see their performances on my Periscope broadcasts:

All in all, hiphop is alive and breathing, the future looks bright and I will be a true fan and supporter for these artists.


Skincare Review: Biotherm Life Plankton Essence


Biotherm Life Plankton Essence

I have been using the Life Plankton Essence by Biotherm for over 6 months and I am completely amazed by the results.  I’m not the kind of person that likes to follow a strict skin regiment, but since the onset of the summer heat, this product has helped with new blemishes and acne scarring.  I was also excited to see how it has also helped with scars that I have had for over 2 years!  (I will have a full before and after result review soon)

You must shake the product before using it and only apply a couple of drops and tap the product lightly onto your skin with your fingertips.  It does have a mild “beach” sent but it absorbs quite nicely into my combination skin.

As you can see in the picture above, after 6 months, I have only used a small amount.  I will be using the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence as part of my daily routine.  I’m so impressed by how my skin feels and it seems to have its glow and lustre back without that greasy look and feel.

I purchased this in the Beauty Section of Shoppers Drug Mart.  Ask for a sample to try it out and let me know your results.  Have a great day my luvs! 🙂
