Just For Mom – DK Canada Books #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 06/16

| May 27, 2014 | 23 Comments

Ok, Mother’s Day is over and I couldn’t think of what to get my mom.  She has everything!  It was the same for me, I couldn’t think of anything when I was asked what  I would like for Mother’s Day.  Besides having a healthy, happy family, there is nothing…  Wait, I know of something I would like to have and I know my mom would appreciate, books!  We both love to read and learn.  I have found the perfect gifts, thanks DK Canada for these two wonderful titles:  Healing Foods and Step-By-Step Home Design & Decorating.

DK Healing Foods

DK Canada Giveaway

Both my mom and I are into natural healing and prevention so the Healing Foods book is quite a gem for us to read.  Healing Foods shows you how to eat your way to a healthier life. With over 300 pages of healing foods, recipes and eating plans, Healing Foods is a wonderful addition to your foodie files.  I especially like the A Day Of… section where you can choose what you need to concentrate on for the day.  Maybe you need to boost your energy or relieve some stress.  Healing Foods gives you a full day of eating plans to aid in whatever you need.  For me, being a mom, A Day Of…Stress Relief was the first eating plan that caught my eye.  The plan starts you off with a positive breakfast, explaining each ingredient you need and why.  There is also a recipe included to make your own granola.  I love this idea because we do try to make as many meals at home as possible.  The next meal is the stress-busting lunch and then finishing your day with a recovery dinner.  All ingredients are included in the recipes are to help relieve your stress.

DK Step-By-Step Home Design & Decorating

DK Canada Giveaway

I enjoy decorating and changing things around the house, especially after a long winter.  The DK Step-By-Step Home Design & Decorating book has you covered if you’re looking to get your home looking and functioning the way you want it to!  There’s something for all styles and all budgets, so dig in and start sprucing.  Over 300 pages filled with inspiring and reliable information.  You will be able to transform your living space from the kitchen to the patio with this step-by-step guide.  What I really enjoyed about the DK Step-By-Step Home Design & Decorating book is that it takes you through the house, room by room, showing you how to choose every key component, including flooring, lighting, furniture and soft furnishings.  I am excited to try recreating my outdoor space, tying it into my indoor space so it feels like an extension of our home.

About the Author ()

Hi, my name is Dawn, Community Manager, Social Media Expert and mom. My career went from working as a Senior Administrative Assistant at a high tech company in Ottawa, back to college to become an Early Childhood Educator, throw in a year of Decorating and Home Staging at an Ottawa design school to being in the health care field. My passion is writing and always has been through every stage of my life. I reside in a small town in Ontario and love to network with other parents through Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. If I am not being a mommy, I am blogging or hanging out at one of the many social media sites. Sometimes multi tasking and doing all three! I enjoy the outdoors, curling up with a good book, yoga and all things mom.
