Contest – Win a Mt Seymour Season Pass!

Sponsored by: Mount Seymour

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

Attention Vancouver mountain lovers! I missed the annual September early bird season pass at Mt Seymour last year (you save 72%!!) so I’m reminding you (and myself) early this year because you need to book by September 30th. With back-to-school and team sports starting up full swing in September, skiing can miss our Fall radar, but this is a wonderful opportunity to make skiing and snowboarding a more affordable activity for Vancouver families. We are also excited to be hosting a contest with the mountain for one lucky family to win a season’s pass!

 My personal attachment to Mount Seymour is special because some of my happiest parenting moments were discovered there. My sons have turned into great skiers and there is no better way to connect with pre-teens then spending an entire day up a Mountain where there are no electronic devices or distractions. Our favourite Seymour runs are Pete’s Run and Black Unicorn, both intermediate that blow the myth that this mountain is a ‘beginner Mountain’. It’s a fantastic Mountain and close for all Fraser Valley and suburb communities to commute to.

About Mount Seymour

Mt Seymour is a one-stop winter activity centre for the whole family that offers something for everyone: skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, winter education programs, snow tubing, tobogganing, great food, and special events. An easy drive from Greater Vancouver carries you out of the city and into the pristine winter playground where you can take in breathtaking views of Mt Baker, Vancouver Island and beyond. Mt Seymour is a family-run organization guided by a passion for the outdoors and for providing great value and exceptional service. With a long-standing tradition of providing each and every guest with a memorable mountain experience, whether you’re seasoned pro or have never played in snow before, Mt Seymour welcomes you.

We are excited to bring Vancouver and BC families the opportunity to win a Mount Seymour Family Pass! Our VERY generous sponsor, Mount Seymour, wants one of our lucky readers to have that chance. So, let’s get on to the giveaway!

Bamboletta Doll Magic and Contest

Sponsored by: Bamboletta Dolls

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

octbamboletta

Many years ago I heard about the doll maker on BC’s West Coast that makes beautiful Waldorf styled dolls. With my journey to discover toys made from organic materials and trying to reduce the number of plastic dolls quickly adding up for my daughters after every celebration, I wanted to learn how Bamboletta’s were different. It only took a minute to get hooked on the beauty and story behind these dolls that were produced with materials I wanted surrounding my girls.

If you are just discovering this business now, it only takes a day following Bamboletta Doll owner Christina on Facebook or Instagram to understand the passion and love she has for her business. She lets us into her magical world of living in a beautiful community and the process that goes into every step of the handcrafted dolls that originated in her living room many year ago.

Christina’s doll making process has stayed the same – with just more hands involved now. The vision to create a succussful business while still feeling connected to family and community is at the core of Bamboletta. They do everything from dyeing the doll’s wool hair, sewing all the bodies, and even making tiny underpants! Materials are sourced close to home, furthering the goal of helping keep a local economy stronger. Keeping this process as true to how it started has kept one thing alive in the dolls, which could never be outsourced, and that is love. ♥

About Bamboletta

Bamboletta creates outstanding natural dolls and doll accessories handcrafted with skill, care and a lot of love. The stories the Bamboletta team share through Instagram and Facebook, showcase the love that is poured into each of these dolls that are then shared around the world. These special natural dolls protect childhood and do not propel little ones into adulthood. Bamboletta is committed to provide a supportive, ethical, fulfilling, and creative environment for women to work in.

We are so excited to work with Christina again and give you the opportunity to win a Classic Bamboletta Doll! These dolls can take upwards of 12 hours to make and after watching the below video of how much love, detail, and people that touch and work on these dolls, you understand why Bamboletta’s business model is so special. This is not a doll that could ever be factory made. These dolls are loved every step of the way during the process to make them:


Do you have a little person that would love to a Bamboletta? We feel VERY lucky that Bamboletta owner Christina wants one of our lucky readers to have that chance! We will definitely want a picture from the winner of this giveaway!

Contest and Review: Blendtec

Sponsored by: Blendtec

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

 

winablendtec

When you enter the world of green-living or making small steps to increase your food awareness and health, the blendtec brand is always making an appearance. Whether you are checking out smoothie recipes, making condiments, sauces, soups, etc., you will see a blendtec machine helping make this happen. Why? The power of the blendtec is amazing. You can have that quick convenience of food that doesn’t take long to prepare, but not sacrificing the quality of the food because blendtec will shorten prep time. From the features tab on the machine I own, I read it’s power is measured with 1625 watt, 3.0 peak horsepower motor. As a mom, all I know is whatever I throw at this machine in a frozen or solid form, the machine is tough and it makes you want to use it. Our recent favourite recipes include watermelon slushies and hummus. The items that you make like smoothies are obvious, but with Fall coming I can’t wait to try more soups and get back to making my own mayonnaise. There are very few gadgets I’ve relied on in my journey to being healthier in the kitchen, and I thank blendtec for their quality and dedication to health!

blenteclogo

Here are five reasons more reasons to love a blendtec:

1) The blendtec machines are smart. My son is convinced it can think for itself with the encouraging phrases you’ll see while it’s in use. This makes the fun factor high with these machines!

2) The timing metrics are great. When you select from a set menu of food you are blending, the machine stops at the end of the time allowance so it’s not over processed. Pre-programmed cycles: Smoothie, Ice Cream, Whole Juice, Hot Soup.

3) The parts are a snap to clean and fit perfectly. I appreciate the snug fit for all the parts and unlike my old blender, there is no waste. If you make a smoothie, you are getting all of the contents as nothing gets stuck in the blades.

4) There are only two pieces with both the twister jar and WildSide+ jar that sit on the big, powerful base of the blendtec. Easy to wash, again, the base is a snap to store, making you want to use this machine often. Nothing is worse than taking apart a machine in 5 or more little pieces to clean after.

5) Power. Its worth mentioning again. You save time and enthusiasm remains high with the powerful motor in this machine. If you need more power, simply slide your finger along the base for customized blending.

About blendtec

Blendtec products are made with high quality and power you can count on. People all around the world use Blendtec blenders in their homes, restaurants, smoothie shops, coffee shops and more. The company started with one man and his curiosity. He has shared that vision with others, and with his team, the dream continues to unfold.

We are excited to bring you this amazing Blendtec Designer Model 625 This machine will inspire you to try recipes with the sleek and functional blender design. The contest winner will receive the blendtec designer 625 base in either black or red colour (based on availability), 3 qt. wildside+ jar & gripper lid container, and guide to recipes and tips.

Would you love to have this beautiful blendtec machine for your own kitchen? Our VERY generous sponsor, Blendtec, wants one of our lucky readers to have that chance!  So, let’s get on to the giveaway!

Jaxx Denim Bean Bag Chair Giveaway

Sponsored by: Jaxx Bean Bags

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint


jaxxbeanbag

What is more fun than a bean bag chair? Well, a brand that has classic designs that your kids won’t out-grow and bean bag chairs that are made in the USA are a pretty big deal. We’ve been on the look out for a bean bag chair for years and the chairs produced by Jaxx are guaranteed to have a design that matches the personality of anyone in your family; young children to adults! We were sent this Saxx 4′ denim bean bag chair and the size has been perfect for all my kids. It’s roomy enough to get all four of them settled, but usually one of my boys can be found with a book, snuggled into the large structure. The ECOFOAM that this company refers to is the fact they recycle previously used foam from trusted sources. I asked about flame retardents and was told “”We guarantee our foam is BPDE free. We source it from an organization that does not and has never used BPDE in their foam.” The regulations regarding flame retardants in general within the US are about to become more strict in 2015 which is good news for everyone.

About Jaxx Bean Bags

This isn’t your grandma’s bean bag. The thought of bean bags conjures up wood-paneled basements and bellbottoms—as well as endless shifting to remain comfortable in a Styrofoam pellet-filled leather bag. Jaxx Bean Bags have a design for everyone and has dreamed up a fluffy cloud 9 to adapt to your room and body needs.

We are excited to bring you this awesome Saxx 4′ Bean Bag Chair – Denim Giveaway! Bean bag chairs are a great size for older kids and this model is 32 lbs of quality fabric and EcoFoam.

The denim bean bag chair creates a reading nook wherever it goes. We’ve never had so much interest in a box arriving at our house and if you win this contest, our generous sponsor Jaxx, wants one of our lucky readers to have that chance! That way you can see how great they are for yourself! So, let’s get on to the giveaway!

One lucky winner will win this

Back To School Contest With My Little Green Shop

Sponsored by: My Little Green Shop

Hosted by: MommyFootprint

mlgscontestfinal

Going back to school can be a challenging place for parents to find green options. Biggest environmental offenders, in my opinion, are products made from plastic that may contain lead. This is not a toxin that parents would welcome into back-to-school supplies, but if they contain PVC plastic, you can’t be sure. So where possible, I like to spend extra dollars to ensure a well designed and safe backpack for school, plus I’m a stickler for stainless steel items for lunches and water. So I’m super excited to be sharing this great prize from My Little Green Shop with big focus on quality: 17oz S’well Bottle (your choice of colour) and an Ecogear Backpack.
About My Little Green Shop

My Little Green Shop does it’s homework and is a trusted store for products that are sustainable for the earth and our health. With a full line-up of greener options for your busy household, we appreciate the research and dedication spent by this Eco boutique. Our favourite products are made with high quality food grade stainless steel and are durable, environmentally safe, and fun.

We are excited to bring you this amazing 17oz S’well Bottle that is teamed up with an Ecogear Flash Backpack Giveaway! The S’well bottles are easily the hottest item heading into schools this Fall because of their fun colors and double walled design keeping water cool all day. The Ecogear Backpacks have a hiking vibe with classic design so that kids can use them for many years. Unlike cheaper backpacks, these are made without PVC so there aren’t any lead concerns. We’ve used Ecogear Backpacks for years and love how the zippers and pockets have stood up to kids that are hard on school gear. Great quality all around!

Would you like to win this S’well bottle and backpack duo heading back to school? We are super grateful to My Little Green Shop for giving one of our lucky readers that chance!
