My Review:
Being recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, I feel I need to learn everything I can about it, to further protect myself and take care of myself while I am young. When I had the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at it.
Being a book from the Canadian Diabetes Association, I knew the information would be accurate, insightful and valuable. I have learned a lot about my disease from doctors, specialists and family, but there were some tips and stats I learned from this book. I'm extremely grateful I got the chance to read this book and get that information.
This book will now be a reference guide to me. When I am unsure of something regarding my illness, I am sure to look to this book first.
I suggest if you have either type of Diabetes, or if you know someone who does, then get a copy. It could save your toes, or your life!

~I received a copy from DK Canada. I was not compensated for my opinion.~


  1. Another great sounding book! I will have to check this one out, as my husband also has type 2 diabetes. I am always looking for more information to help him. Thanks for the great review.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

86 minutes

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!

Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
