I mentioned in one of my earlier posts travelling with a toddler that one of our friends prepared a box of surprises for our daughter to keep her entertained while flying out west. It helped us keep her entertained for a good portion of our 5 hour flight across Canada. It included so many great things, stickers, crayons, books, paper, dolls, and so much more.

SOOOO, in the spirit of keeping this amazing “new tradition” alive, we decided to do the same for our friend’s who will be travelling soon.

This little girl is one of my daughter’s closest friends, she has many sweet passions and interests, but her favourite right now — FROZEN! Who doesn’t love Frozen? It seems as if my family is the only one who has not yet watched the movie. Our little one isn’t much into movies just yet.

So I was on a mission to find some cute, Frozen themed items that would keep her happy and entertained for her long journey. After searching high and low, I came across the following items:

1. Small, clear Frozen themed backpack
2. Hair comb and mirror and hair accessories (Frozen of course)
3. Frozen lip balm (Gotta keep your lips hydrated. Even if you are only 2!)
4. Flash card games by Fisher Price
5. Dora the Explorer colouring book (another favourite of this sweetie pie)
6. Melissa and Doug Crayons
7. Treats

Here’s the final product! Cute isn’t it?

Social Media, Part 1: Getting a Handle on Pinterest

Okay blogging friends, a bit of a tangent (an important one I promise!). Half the battle with succeeding in a fitness business is about getting yourself out there, noticed via the multiple social platforms available (Facebook, instagram, twitter). How many of you actually considered Pinterest as a means to share and “Pin” your key posts? Thanks to my connections as a #Sweatpink Ambassador, I was able to participate in a 5 day, brief online Pinterest training to learn more about the ins and outs of this incredible platform.

I want to thank Aquablueprint for taking the time to provide this training: Here are a couple of take aways that I’d love to share with you all.

1. Use keywords, this helps drive traffic to your boards.

2. Be smart with how you present yourself, reflect who you are and what your “brand” is all about.

3. Interact frequently and genuinely
