The Way - Ariana Grande feat. Mac Miller

Her voice has been compared to Mariah Carey's and while we can see (or, rather, hear) why, we still think she's got enough vocal talent to stand out on her own merit. Enjoy Grande's catchy tune as you make your way into the long weekend!


Have a great Labour Day weekend, ladies, and see you on Monday!

Nature Lover

Brighten up your child's room with a whimsical nature scene using the adorable Skip Hop Treetop Friends Wall Decals. The easy-to-apply vinyl decals (88 in total) can be arranged to create a full tree design (as pictured here), or use the branches, leaves and woodland friends to accent different parts of the room. Best of all, they don't leave a sticky residue so you can peel them on and off and reposition them as often as you'd like.

Good as Gold

From the makers of the ice cream bars with the signature crack when you bite into it comes a brand new flavour — Magnum Gold?!. The luxuriously sweet treat is made with silky vanilla bean ice cream with a sea salt caramel swirl and dipped in a golden coating made with Belgian milk chocolate. Also available in a mini size for those who want to indulge, but in a smaller serving. We dare say it, the newest ice cream bar from Magnum is as good as gold. 

If you are in Toronto, be sure to visit the Magnum Pleasure Store (11 Bloor Street West, open Mondays to Saturdays from noon to 10:00pm and Sundays from 11:00am to 6:00pm) where you can create your very own custom ice cream bar just like celebs Toronto Maple Leafs player Joffrey Lupul, Chef Mark McEwan, and actor Joe Manganiello. Hurry though  the store is only open until August 30th!

Joffrey Lupul, left winger for the Toronto Maple Leafs, stopped by the Magnum Pleasure Store to make his own custom ice cream bar and meet fans on July 25, 2013.
