Wiser thoughts..

Hey Guys!

It has been a long and adventurous road over the years. I’ve brought you all with me as I entertained you and the masses lol. I have learned and grown into a better me. I actually feel better.

I started this blog because I am a writer. When I was 7, I would staple paper together and draw pictures to match my story. My characters had a LOT to say. I made a safety book about not chasing a ball across the street. I wrote a “Happily Ever After?” story that told an alternate ending to the Cinderella fairytale. I’ve written poems, short stories and some quirky tweets. It is so amazing to have met people worldwide, in person and over the interwebs. Who would have thought that I could write things endlessly and make up words, share dark and light humour… I have also loved reading your blogs, too!

I’m old as heck and I still enjoy the internet in all kinds of capacities. I still enjoy radio and podcast making and you will hear me on the air waves here and there. My dj wheels of steel are now being used by my children but I still love a good rhyme and a beat. I will continue to promote artists and business owners because that is what the internet was for! Self promoting, promoting others, teaching others new things, trying new things.. It’s about all of the things! Social media can be crazy but that is only if you take it too seriously. Everyone has a voice and we should be able to use it. There are a plethora of opinions out there and you don’t have to listen to any of them. Stay open minded because sometimes the first impressions aren’t the ones you should base your opinion on either. Did that sound too lecture-y?

I’ve come quite far from pushing a van full of kids off the road in my stiletto shoes, coming up with the “Stiletto Supermom” name, creating a blog, creating a live talk radio show, creating videos, livestreams, co-hosting radio shows and now, here we are. “Stiletto Supermom” has brought so much joy to me and was/is my outlet and will continue to be my voice. I began reviewing products online, writing blogs and making videos and I don’t really know what to do now. I feel like I have plateaued and I am completely fine with it.

Does this sound like goodbye? Bc no! this is not a goodbye. This is a fork in the road and I may just hang out in the middle and enjoy the view for awhile.

I hope you are all having a great Fall and I look forward to our next update!

Much love

My thoughts, my Influenster

I joined Influenster in August of 2012 and I have been a huge fan since.  It is a site ( http://www.influenster.com ) where you can share product reviews and information.  By giving reviews and rating products, I am able to make informed decisions when I try and purchase new products.

My favourite VoxBox was the Mystery Brand hair product review.  I tried the sample sized products that were sent to me then a few weeks later the product was revealed as the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line.  I was sent full product sizes of the Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditionr and the Split-End serum.  I continue to use this hair care line to this date.  This along with trying Sally Hansen’s nail polishes throughout the couple years has been such a fun and interesting experience.

Since 2012, there have been several changes, from the expansion into Canada, website updating and now the most recent InfluensterApp for my iPhone.  During the updates, I had run into a glitch in my account, the people at Influenster were quick to respond and to fix the problem.  A great company overall.

Thank you, Influenster for giving consumers a voice!

OMG Milk & OMG Peanut…and Netflix

This whole week I’ve been doing research and this weekend has come and gone. The kids’ lunches are ready for the last week before Easter. I went to the nearby Dollarama and picked up some Easter decorations and set it up before the kids came home…and they LOVED it! I had to sneak a picture before they ate all the MiniEggs…

Easter 2014

…like I thought, they devoured them haha

I couldn’t find construction paper at Dollarama so I stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart and found a couple things I needed for some of my projects. I will have to buy some gel pens as my boys “have no idea where they are”. The pen case was exactly where I left them, but zero pens..sigh.

My biggest “score” however, were the OMG candy clusters I found. I was watching The Dragons’ Den on Netflix and I learned that these chocolate treats were made by the same creators of Clodhoppers. Of course, I wanted to try them.

OMG's Candy

Uhmm all I can say is YUMMMMM! These chocolates have graham cracker bits mixed in with almonds (Milk in red packaging) and the same mixture but with peanuts (Peanut in yellow packaging). If you are a chocolate lover like I am you will love these. The chocolate is so creamy and although the bag looks small, they are quite filling. The Peanut version seemed to have peanut butter mixed into the chocolate with whole peanut chunks. Great snack food!

I took my dog for a late night walk to burn off the delicious treats, now I’m off to curl up in my comfy bed and watch some Netflix. I will let you all know what I watched tomorrow.

Much love! 😉

Whew! Finally!

Success!!

I finally got my phone upgraded and after numerous errors on my account with the cellphone company, I have a huge credit on my account and a new iPhone 5s. Now, I had to work for this important piece of gadgetry, it took almost a full week! Lesson learned: Always go to the bigger store locations, in my case the mall, customer service matters!

iPhone 5s

With new phone in hand with less than 10% charge :-/ I did do a bit of shopping…yes, I stopped at MAC… I only bought 3 things this time, so I did demonstrate some kind of restraint, although I DID only intend on buying 1 thing heehee I bought more Pro Longwear Concealer, a lip pencil in “Hip ‘n’ Happy” and an Amplified lipstick in “Chatterbox”. Just the names alone make me laugh because, well it kind of describes how I’ve been feeling lately.

After my spa retreat, I had a lot of time to just not think and completely relax. I also decided to try some of the AVEDA products they were selling there, I loved the natural scents in that spa. I’ve seen these spas around for many years, but as goes life, some things are just more important at the time. I bought two kinds of skin care kits, one is “enbrightenment” the other is “tourmaline charged”. Every year during the weather change, my skin decides to be a pain in the ass, so I’m trying to be more proactive this year. This ol’ gal isn’t getting any younger… these were some pricey products so I’m going to do a full review on them and let you know how it goes.

Overall, it’s been a great week…yes I’m knocking on everything made of wood! 😉
