Spring finally seems to be here after a long winter with flowers beginning to bloom and the weather warming up. Along with it being the season for spring cleaning, it’s time to start getting out and about again. This of course means making sure you are prepared for the season ahead.
Shoppers Drug Mart is my favourite source to pick up everything I need to take care of my family and myself thanks to the broad selection of everyday, unique and exclusive in season products. As a mom to two toddlers, I always appreciate the fact that I can take them for a quick walk to the closest Shoppers Drug Mart and be able to pick up what I need in no time since the store is always so easy to navigate.
I always find myself exploring the seasonal product section of Shoppers Drug Mart as I never know what kind of treasure I will come across. Recently I was browsing the store and came across this super cute Licensed Sand Toy Set featuring Sophia the First, one of the girls favourite shows. The Licensed Sand Toy Set includes a pail, ball, watering can and more, all featuring fun characters like Sophia the First, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Cars and more. Beach exploration has never been more fun, whether the beach is real or just imagined!
I just had to pick it up in anticipation of the warm weather and trips to the beach to come this year. Keira though? She doesn’t even need the sand to enjoy playing with this fun set!
Since the weather is warmer we are planning a few road trips and while I like to pack mostly healthy snacks, it’s fun to also throw in something a little fun for around the time everyone starts to lose their patience. These yummy Carnaby Sweet Mixed Gummies found at Shoppers Drug Mart are the perfect sweet treat to bring along. It’s a gummy mix of strawberries, cherries, raspberries, worms, pop bottles & sharks.
The Carnaby Sweet Mixed Gummies bring me back to middle school and an awesome little variety store I’d pass on my way to school which sold penny candies and 5 cent candies. I might have been their best customer so it’s safe to say I am more than sold on this delicious mix.
Warmer weather also means we spend a lot more time outside, which means taking steps to protect the girls from insect bites. Shoppers Drug Mart can help you cross that off your list with the Life Brand For Kids Insect Repellent which features a fresh scent while effectively repelling mosquitoes and black flies with deet and active Toluamides.
Sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself too. There is nothing I enjoy more than slapping on some sunscreen on a particularly warm and sunny spring day while the girls nap and head out to my backyard with some ice cream, a spoon and maybe a good book or magazine. Of course Shoppers Drug Mart carries all the essentials for some Mom downtime too.
Next time you are at Shoppers Drug Mart you will want to pick up some Life Brand Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 which helps to provide broad spectrum protection from the sun’s damaging rays in a non-greasy, waterproof formula. Just don’t forget to grab some ice cream such as Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Half Baked Ice Cream. Seriously guys. Chocolate & peanut butter ice cream mixed with gobs of peanut butter cookie dough & fudge brownies. What’s not to love?
Beyond the awesome selection of spring products, I love earning points on most of my purchases thanks to the Shoppers Optimum Rewards program. Join the conversation on social media with #BurstIntoSpring
