Weather The Winter With Tana (And Win a Shoe Shopping Spree!)

Posted October 20, 2014 by Loukia

Many things make me happy: snuggles with my children, vacations to warm destinations where I’m lounging on a beach with a drink in hand, rainy afternoons where I’m lost in a good novel, dinners and wine with friends, and shoe shopping. Yes, shoe shopping always makes me happy, no matter the season—spring, summer, fall or winter—because no matter the season, there is always something just so perfect that I must shop for.

Even though we’re enjoying the crisp days of fall, winter is literally just around the corner, and if I’m not dressed warm, I’m pretty miserable being outside. I also get really sad when I’m wearing a favourite pair of boots and they get destroyed because of the salt and snow… all because I didn’t properly protect them. And trust me, I’ve ruined quite a few pairs of boots over the years.

Living in a city that has such harsh winters, I have learned my lesson—if I’m going to wear boots I love outside during the winter months, I have to protect them. I want my shoes to be ready for the weather, too—so they don’t get damaged and so I can wear them year after year.

I spoke to a Tana Shoe Care Expert at one of my favourite shoes stores recently when I went to pick up a new pair of winter boots, and I learned a few things about taking care of my new boots so they’ll last the entire season—and years to come, too. It’s simple really—purchase the Tana shoe protector you need for your boots, and take the time to get your favourite booties winter weather-ready.

Clean, Polish, Shine and Protect

Tana All Protector is perfect to use on all types of shoes and boots because it creates an invisible shield that protects against all the elements and prevents dirt from setting to make cleaning easier. Perfect for Canadian winters! Just spray on your boots, and let dry.

I love the Tana Suede and Nubuck Cleaner—it really works to remove stains and spots so I can wear last year’s boots again this year—because they look like new again. And the entire process takes no time at all.

I also love the Self Shine Cream because it’s easy to use and makes my favourite shoes look brand new again. It helps keep the leather soft, too, while keeping them protected. Total bonus.

Also a total bonus?

How about winning a $500 shoe shopping spree? Can you imagine what you can buy with $500 in shoes? A lot of shoes. And boots. 

Join us for a fun Twitter party on October 30th between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m., where we’ll be talking all about shoes and boots. Make sure to follow along with host @moeturner and me, @MrsLoulou, @Mom2Michael, @LisaThornbury, and @kidsumers for a fun conversation and for the chance to win.

Good Luck!

Disclosure: I am taking part in the Tana Shoe Care Blog campaign. While I receive compensation as part of my affiliation with this program, the opinions shared are my own.

The Game Of Life (CAA Edition)

Posted September 30, 2014 by Loukia
Becoming a parent was a game-changer for me. I had no idea, really, that welcoming a new baby into our lives was going to be such a life- altering experience. Now with two boys in school full-time, things haven’t necessarily slowed down, but our routines are a little easier to manage, and my boys are at such a wonderful age—nine, and six years old—and it’s been a pleasure seeing them grow into the people they are becoming every day.

Some days, it feels like our life could be a reality show, because I truly believe the things that happen to us would make for some great quality entertainment on TV. Some days, it feels like we’re players in the game of life, being challenged constantly in different ways.

Every day we are faced with challenges, every day we try hard to reach our goals and, sometimes, we’re rewarded with success. It could be achieving something small, like cooking a great dinner without burning down the house, or it could be something huge—like getting that job that you think you’re perfect for. Whatever it is, we are always and forever striving toward something, individually, or a as a family unit. Sometimes, just getting the kids out of the house in the morning can be a huge challenge, and that’s okay.

Sometimes we’re thrown a curve ball, (ah, life!) and we have to learn to just laugh and go along with the changes. Last year, before we boarded our flight to south Florida, I accidentally forget there was an apple in my carry-on bag. Of course, I had already checked off “no fruit” on my security form, so we were held back as they questioned me. We ended up missing our flight, even though we were running through the airport like that scene from Home Alone. Even though we missed our flight, we managed to get on another flight a few hours later. During the time we were waiting, we played some games, talked, and ate dinner together. It’s all about not letting the little things slow you down. It’s all about overcoming those obstacles—the minor ones, like a missed flight—and the bigger ones we’re faced with. You never know what your day will bring, so I just take things in stride… and enjoy the ride, while mentally playing your own game of life.

THE GAME OF LIFE - CAA Edition is back again this year for the 4th time, and this time, it’s better than ever. 



I’m so glad that I’m a GAME OF LIFE Ambassador with CAA, because I love spreading the word about fun contests that everyone can get involved in. THE GAME OF LIFE – CAA Edition runs from September 29th until November 23rd, and the best part is Members and non-members can play for the chance to win a prize.

page2image7160page2image7320

There are over $35,000 in instant prizes being given away, and all you have to do to win is… play! Up for grabs? Petro-Canada Gift Cards, Payless ShoeSource Gift Cards, Kernels Popcorn Gift Cards, Best Western Travel Cards, Sephora Gift Cards, gift cards to The Body Shop, and Starwood Pre-Paid MasterCards. Oh, and this is just a sample of the great prizes to be won!

You can play online every day, and it’ll take you less time to play than updating your status on Facebook. Not only can you enter to win prizes every day, you can even earn bonus entries when you share your game activities on your social media sites. How fun is that?

I’m really loving the grand prize, though… the winner will get to decide between these three fabulous vacation destinations:

1. Florida Family Fun: An 8 day trip for 4 to Orlando theme parks.

2. Northern European Cruise: A 7 night Norwegian escape for 2 people with Holland America Line.

3. Signature Argentina: A 2 person, 13 day tour of the best of Argentina.

All three trips sounds amazing, but if I were to win, I’d probably pick the Florida trip because I love vacations that include my children. And this time, I’d leave the fruit out of my carry-on bag!

CAA is the most trusted name in roadside assistance, and it’s a comfort knowing help is always just a phone call away. CAA Members have access to not only roadside assistance, but life, home, and auto insurance; travel packages and insurance, and exclusive access to savings and rewards at over 164,000 retail locations and services around the world.

As a mom, I’m proud to partner with CAA and I’m so excited for THEGAME OF LIFE – CAA Edition. With prizes this great, it’s worth everyone’s time to play!
