2013 Holiday Gift Guide - Infinity Headbands



All girls love to look pretty and a great idea for girls of all ages is accessories. One accessory for all ages is headbands. Headbands come in a variety of styles, but finding the right style for the right person can means searching and searching. A great solution to this problem is Infinity Headbands where you can basically design your own headband.

Basically all you do is start off with a blank headband, then you pick your material band, and then your embellishment.


With 21 covers and 24 embellishments the number of different styles you can create seem almost endless.

What I think is great about this is that not only will Infinity Headbands work great on my 10 year old daughter, but with so many different styles you can create with them they are also great for my teen aged daughter.

If you're looking for something for a young girl or even a teen aged girl on your Christmas list why not head on over to www.AmbrosiaDesigns.com and create a headband perfect for them this Christmas.

Summary:
In a riveting exploration of the power the past wields over the present, critically acclaimed author Antoinette van Heugten writes the story of a woman whose child's life hangs in the balance, forcing her to confront the roots of her family's troubled history in the dark days of World War II.

It's the stuff of nightmares. Nora de Jong returns home from work one ordinary day to find her mother has been murdered. Her infant daughter is missing. And the only clue is the body of an unknown man on the living-room floor, clutching a Luger in his cold, dead hand. Saving her daughter means delving deeper into her family's darkest history, and as Nora feverishly pieces together the truth from an old family diary, she's drawn back to a city under Nazi occupation, where her mother's alliances may have long ago sealed her own, and Rose's, fate.

My thoughts -

I think  Antoinette van Heugten is a wonderful writer. I loved her previous book Saving Max and she didn't let me down with her newest one, The Tulip Eaters. I'm a history buff and although this is a fictional history story it does have elements of true history in it. Not only did I like the history part of it, but I also loved the adventure and mystery! Also as a mother myself I can see me moving heaven and Earth in search for my child. The Tulip Eater is definitely one of my new favourite books.

You can purchase The Tulip Easter at your local bookstore and online from Amazon and Harlequinn. It is available in paperback and as an ebook.

Antonella's Pasta Sauce






Being a working mother makes suppertime stressful. By the time I get  home from work it's close to supper time and that means it has to be something quick and easy. My go-to suppertime meal is usually pasta. My children's two favourite pasta is macaroni & cheese and spaghetti.



My children like the box macaroni & cheese, but I don't. I don't like the taste of it and it seems too effortless to be considered a real meal to me. Thanks to Antoella's Cheddar Pasta Sauce not only can I make delicious macaroni & cheese that my kids love, but I also love, and it's quick and easy to make. All you have to do is make your pasta noodles and pour the sauce over it. How simple is that!


About Antonella's -

Antonella's is a Canadian company out of  Quebec.  They offer four flavors, Alfredo Sauce, Cheddar Sauce, Tomato-Basil Tomato Sauce, and Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce. Antonella’s sauces are made entirely with quality ingredients and contain no preservatives or gluten.

Alfredo (500ml): Until now, ready-to-serve Alfredo sauce was only available in glass jars. Antonella’s has changed all that with an Alfredo sauce that comes in cardboard packaging and is available at a very competitive price. Antonella’s Alfredo sauce is made with cream, Parmesan cheese and egg yolks spiced with a touch of roasted garlic and onion.

Cheddar (500ml): At last there’s a ready-to-serve cheddar sauce for pasta! This Antonella’s exclusive is made with fresh cream, cheddar cheese and unsalted butter. It’s rich and creamy and it’s sure to hit the spot with everyone in the family. Especially the kids!

Tomato-Basil (750ml): Sun-ripened tomatoes, basil and a touch of spices have been simmered together to create a simple sauce with authentic flavours. It’ll become a family favourite!

Roasted Garlic (750ml): Tomato and roasted garlic meet to create a light, creamy sauce that’s fresh and simple. The perfect sauce to bring to the table!

Not only do I think that Antonella's sauces are delicious, but I love the fact that they come in cardboard containers instead of glass bottles. They are much more environmentally friendly and if you accidentally drop on there is no chance of having shattered glass all over your kitchen floor.

Antonella's pasta sauces can be purchased at the following locations.
