With the May long weekend come and gone, summer is just around the corner! Here are a few things that I discovered in the month of May that I want to share with our readers.
Companies with Lifetime Warranties
I was recently reminded of Eddie Bauer’s lifetime warranty policy through this article I read. This was perfect timing as I had an old Eddie Bauer spring jacket with a busted zipper that’s been driving me crazy for some time. The store initially wanted to reimburse me for a zipper replacement but when they found out it would cost $50 + tax, they decided to replace my jacket instead (yahoo!). This just brings to mind that it may be worthwhile to shop at stores with a lifetime warranty policy.
Red Nose Day Actually
After 14 years, the sequel to Love Actually aired as part of Red Nose Day, a fundraising campaign aimed at eliminating child poverty. The 16 minute sequel brings back most of the characters (with the original actors) and the addition of two new famous faces. If you haven’t seen the Love Actually sequel yet, you’re in for a real treat.
Goodlife Teen Fitness
If you have a child 12 years of age or older, Goodlife Fitness is bringing back their popular FREE Teen Fitness program this summer. Open to teens ages 12-17, they get free access to Goodlife locations 7 days a week between the hours of 8am to 4pm during the summer months.
LEGO Fidget Spinner
Tweens are crazy about the fidget spinners and this DIY fidget spinner made out of LEGO totally rocks!! Talk about a perfect rainy day activity.
Royals to Visit Canada
If you’re a royal watcher, you’ll be pleased to know that Prince Charles and Camilla are planning to visit Canada to celebrate our country’s 150th birthday. The royal couple start their tour in Nunavut, and end 3-days later in Ottawa on July 1st, just in time to celebrate Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill.
About Wendy Morelli
Wendy loves her 2 kids and her iPhone, not necessarily always in that order. She is an app obsessed mom who loves everything tech and is (unfortunately) old enough to remember the brick Motorola cell phone and the Commodore computer. Her love for technology stems back to the 10+ years of working for technology based companies. Wendy's alter ego, "AppHipMom" has been featured in Canadian Family, iVillage, Women in Biz, EverythingMom, BlogHer and Savvy Mom.
