3 Things Missing From Your Will

In What’s likely missing from your will by Stefania Moretti (originally published at MoneySense.ca in April 2012), the question of who you plan to leave your digital assets to is raised. After all, though they may not be assets in the traditional sense like a car or house, your Aeroplan rewards and iTunes library still have some serious monetary value.

Delectable Investment

Here's a treat that's a must-have for the emergency snack stash at work - OMG's are mouthwatering clusters of chocolate and graham wafers mixed with diced almonds and crunchy toffee bits. Available in both milk and dark chocolate, these candies are the brainchild of the same guys who brought us Clodhoppers and they were even featured on reality show Dragon's Den. The outcome on the show? They successfully secured an investment and, OMG, are we glad they did.

Movie Worth Watching: Pitch Perfect

Is this Glee for the silver screen? Comparisons will certainly be made but we think Pitch Perfect (Universal Pictures), starring Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Elizabeth Banks, about an all-girls a cappella group who rebuilds so they can make their way to the championship, has real potential to be a hit film for fall. 

Watch the official Picture Perfect trailer here:

Busy body

Leah Eichler recently tackled a most interesting topic in her column in The Globe and Mail, asking the question Is being super busy so bad?

As one industrious career gal, who Eichler interviewed for the article, remarked, “I’m happiest when I’m teetering on the edge of chaos, when I’m pushing hard on several fronts at once.” The same person goes on to say, “It’s when I’m most productive, and I get a real adrenalin rush from making it all work.”

How about you? Do you feel most productive when chaos ensues, and you have to make sense of it all?

"Tuff" Case to Crack


When we're working, we take our MacBook everywhere - to the office, caf├ęs, the library, pretty much anywhere that we can get some typing done. And with carting it from place to place, we like to ensure our precious laptop's got a sturdy shield to protect it from potential nicks, bumps, and scrapes. Our top choice? UK-based Tuff-Luv's Slim-Line Leather Case Cover for Apple MacBook Pro 2011. The lightweight, stylish, faux leather case has a magnetic closure flap to keep the case firmly closed, as well as clips to the open lid while we're working (no need to remove the case when it's in use - awesome!). Six SD card slots and a business card holder on the inside of the flap also helps to keep us organized. This gorgeous cover for one of our most prized possessions is worth every cent.
