Snuggle Up In Style #CampAndCabinCozy #Contest

Winter in the 'Peg can be especially brutal and cold. While I often find myself "hibernating," my favorite place to do this is at my cabin!  What could possibly be better than snuggling up in front of the wood stove, a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) in one hand a great book in the other?  

The answer?  Snuggling up in a Snugabye Camp & Cabin fleece onesie!   Snugabye has been making cozy and comfy sleep and loungewear for little ones for over sixty years. Camp & Cabin Snugabye thought it was about time to make some for Moms. 

I was able to try out this cozy garment in the Grey Leopard print.  I love it!  It came just in time, as I was nursing a bad cold and some nasty chills.

These are fun holiday gifts and are quite on trend right now too.  Want to send a onesie to someone you love?  Make sure you have your order in by December 20th to have it in time for the holidays.  

Want to win one for yourself?  Check out the contest below!  There are 3 prize packs to giveaway, including the following:
  • One (1) x Camp & Cabin Onesie of the winner's choice
  • One (1) x $100 VISA gift card

Camp & Cabin

 Good luck!

5 Quesions To Resolve Before Holiday #Travel

5 questions to resolve before traveling this holiday season:

Many families will be traveling this holiday season. Some will be jetting off to warmer climates, while others will be visiting family in different provinces. Regardless of where you might be heading, it’s important to be prepared and protected. Here are some simple questions you should ask yourself before you head out the door.

1.       Is everyone’s passport up to date? For those travelling internationally, Canadian passports are valid for either five or 10 years. Everyone in your family, including children and newborns need a passport or travel document, so be sure to check everyone’s as soon as possible. Processing times are longer during the holiday season.

2.       Do you have the right vaccinations and medical records? Depending on your destination, you may need a vaccination, not just for entry but to ensure that you will be safe and protected when there.

3.       Do you have the right insurance protection? Don’t assume that coverage is provided through your employer or credit card. Insurance broker, Western Financial Group recommends that you talk your broker before your trip because he/she can ensure that your policy meets your unique travel plans.

4.       Are you protected no matter what you do? Even if you have very comprehensive coverage, it may not protect you for all you plan to do. For example, special coverage is required for extreme activities such as parasailing.

5.       How long can you be away? You’re only covered for so long, so if you plan on being away for an extended period, make sure your coverage doesn’t lapse before your planned return.
