High-vis bathing suits

Summer often brings time spent in pools, lakes and oceans. And we don't want to be downers but water safety is important. In case of an emergency, it's important that your child's bathing suit is bright and easy to see both above and underwater. It could save their lives.

These cute suits from Gap and Old Navy are bright and affordable. Grab yours before you head to the pool.

Nat Pat Itch Relief Stickers

Nat Pat Itch Relief Stickers Merchant

My son, who's allergic to mosquito bites and usually swells up and is itchy for days, tested one of these anti-itch stickers on a new bite. Not only did it stop the itching, the patch took down the swelling, too. We were amazed. The brand also makes patches to repel mosquitos, help kids calm down, focus and even fall asleep.

WeCook Meals


I had a chance to try six ready-made meals from WeCook and it saved my family so much time grocery shopping, cooking and making lunches. It's a service we're considering subscribing to when we know we'll both be working a lot or when our calendars are filling up. The meal delivery service offers small, regular and family-sized meals. WeCook is only available in Canada but you can try a similar service, Blue Apron, in the States.

Ozark Trail 40 Can TableTop Cooler

What We're Shopping For in June

This cooler folds down flat but upright, it holds 40 cans. Plus it has a hard top that can double as a little side table at your next picnic. Beyond drinks, this handy summer accessory could carry a picnic lunch, snacks for soccer practice or even breast milk and your pump!

Tubby Todd Summer Collection


Made with natural and plant-based ingredients, Tubby Todd products are gentle but effective—and perfect for the whole family. Their newest collection features two limited-edition scents and an assortment of gift bundles. Does your kid love bath bombs? This is the gift set for you.

Three bottles of body wash and three bath bombs sit in an open cardboard box. The inside of the lid of the box reads "Good clean fun".

Oatbox Overnight Oats

Call me boring but I eat oatmeal almost every day of the year. To switch it up in the summer, I love cold but hearty overnight oats on a hot morning. Oatbox makes a collection of organic, plant-based products made with Canadian oats. Compared with other grains, oats are more sustainable and use less water so they're not only a healthy source of nutrients for you, they're good for the planet.
