I have a thing for cars.

Saw this old Chevy truck in Mexico and it reminded me of Dad. When I was growing up I spent heaps of time round old cars as Dad owned a chassis shop called “Toys for Boys” where he custom built hot rods & cool cars like a pro street s10, as well as many others that would be now considered vintage. We always had people coming by the house with the sickest rides. I guess that’s where my love for nice cars comes from. Thanks Dad (and Mum of course!) 🙂 Next week I’ll be on the road driving the cute little Sonic from Chevrolet. Remember a couple months ago when I won A Sonic in Yonge Dundas Square LIVE on YouTube.ca? What a crazy experience. In January I’m attending the 2012 North American International Auto Show. Ford is sending 150 of the worlds top bloggers to NAIAS for a few days of press conferences, dinners, discussions & influencer activities. Can’t wait till my itinerary arrives to I can FW it to my Tripit app on iPhone. Mum informed me that I cisited the Ford Motor Company plant when I was a wee little kiddio. My how times flies!

you read it in the newspaper, ask your girlfriends and see if they know

Had ice cream at Ed’s Real Scoop in the Beaches today. Chocolate & homemade. So good.  I useally go for chocolate, nothing to fancy or with accessories. Carly gave me the great suggestion. Y’know Carly? She’s my friend/agent/blondetourage blog babe who moved to Florida last year and she’s COMING BACK this week. Yay. Gonna go driving to this album tomorrow. So many good songs. I was creeping Jack White… Did you know he is Scottish, Polish and Canadian descent. He’s quite fascinating if you don’t already know. This was a funny comic to get today, right after a wedding and all. Cheryl & Jared  had cheesecake. It was good. Tonmorrow I’m checking out all the nerdy tech stuff  about this Ford Fusion.  Maybe a car wash too. I have the Fusion Sport, black leather interior, 2.5L.  Fun car to drive.  I really like cars. Grew up hanging in the garage with Dad.  He builds hot rods. Had his own shop in Cambridge when I was growing up, “Toys for Boys”. Saw this today and thougt of you Dad. The Beaches are so pretty. Reminds me of where I grew up. Old houses, tall trees, narrow streets, sidewalk stairs, front porch.…

interview with a toy expert: hi, i am five years old.

This week I interviewed Riza Javellana, a Toy Expert at Mattel Canada. I asked questions I wanted to know. I am five year old inside and love toys and I refuse to lose the childlike sparkle in my eye. You will find it fun if you are wondering what the hell to get your sisters kids or your brother-laws cousin or that special munchkin in your life. 🙂 * natalie dee drawing What is the most “tech” toy out for kids this year? For girls, Barbie Video Girl has been a real hit. (I HAVE THIS! It’s awesome.) It enables girls KIDS to capture memories with a camera lens hidden in Barbie’s necklace and a colour LCD screen on her back. It’s movie-making from Barbie’s point of view. It is compatible with Windows and Mac and even comes with editing software, allowing kids to add music and graphics to their videos. I can imagine this product being a real hit for those kids who love singing to videos. It’s an all-in-one entertainment toy! What is the most popular toy this holiday season for boys, for girls? (both!) For boys, the Hot Wheels Criss-Cross Crash Track Set has been very popular.…
