Canadian Coupon Mom

I have had a really hard time getting certain things to work for me over here at wordpress. It’s been great for the few months that I have been here but I think I need to make the move over to Blogger. Please follow me over at Canadian Coupon Mom .
I am still very interested in doing Product reviews and giveaways, and writing about life as a Canadian mommy of two!


Children start using the computer so early these days. I love finding really great sites that I don’t mind them on and they can navigate through easily. My son doesn’t like help when he is on the computer so easy navigation is a big thing. My children love to read and my son loves the computer. So when I had the chance to review some books at Story Time for Me I was thrilled.

STORY TIME FOR ME is a unique literary website designed specifically for toddlers and children in early elementary school, allowing them to read and listen to enjoyable, online interactive picture books. We also offer a one-of-a-kind animated personalized book.

The books range for ages 1-8. When the narrator is reading the words are highlighted on the screen for the children to follow along.

Both my children enjoyed these books a lot. My son who was able to navigate easily through the site loved that he could choose which one he wanted to listen to next. He says his favorite story is Ben’s Halloween because he can’t wait for Halloween. My daughter loved reading them all! I love all the different themes to choose and learn from. Each book gives the reader a lesson – Life Lessons, Courage, Friendship, Holidays, Overcoming Obstacles, Helping Others and more.

How it works:
Register at Story Time for Me choose your books, then you go to your library to read your books. There are 3 different characters to choose from and over 50 books. The 3 characters are Ben the mouse, Fern the fox or Flame the dragon. The books are also different levels of reading based on the age of your children, ages 1-4 or 4-8.

I was contacted by about receiving a sample of their Simulated Diamond Stud Earrings for review and giveaway! are promoting their website by offering Free earrings if you spread the word on the web somewhere, Twitter, Facebook, blogging etc. then all they ask is for you to pay $3.77 postage and handling to receive a pair of earrings.

The Review:
My pair of earrings arrived pretty fast but my only complaint is that the box got crushed. Other than that, I received a beautiful pair of Simulated Diamond Stud Earrings. I have contacted Chris at and I could return the pair for another if I wanted a new box. Not a big deal for me but if it was a gift I would have exchanged them. I am very impressed with the quality of the earrings even though I was a bit worried my ears wouldn’t like them. So far I’ve been wearing them a week (taking them off for showering) and my ears do not mind them. I have had numerous comments about them and how sparkly they are. My husband even mention that when we were laying in bed one night! They are not too big, just the right size. They would make a great gift for the holidays.

Where to Buy: Visit to purchase your own pair for the price of shipping and handling ($3.77)!
