New from the @Netflix #streamteam // The Ultimate Birthday Hack!

IMG_6083My little guy turned 4 this past week! I can’t believe how fast times go. We had an amazing time at The Rec Room for his pizza and arcade game party. I’ll be including more party details in the coming weeks. But for now visit my youtube video on our experience with The Rec Room.

The one thing I was so excited about this year was the personalized birthday song from his favorite Netflix show.

 

Like the success countdown to New Years feature, this was just as great. Netflix is granting parents the ultimate birthday gift with the launch of 14 Birthdays On-Demand featurettes. Starring the characters in your kids’ favourite shows like Beat Bugs, DinoTrux and even Pokemon, your kids will feel like the characters are singing just for them.

It was such a success in our home, I’d thought I’d share this birthday hack with you! Happy Birthday!

The “Grown Up” Bellini Recipe || Babes Who Brunch || Tips & Tricks with @204Park

I remember the days we used to get cheap pitchers of Bellini at our local Joey’s or Earls… packed full of sugar with that gross dyed grenadine. Well years later, my love for a good Bellini lives on but I want a more refined adult flavour. This may be the simplest recipe you’ve ever seen and if you’ve traveled to Italy you’ve probably seen one of these on a 4 o’clock aperitif menu.

Here’s one of my favourite Girls Brunch drinks with my blogging bestie Diane of 204 Park.

Pour peach purée into a glass (I like about 1 oz)

Top with prosecco (2-3 oz to taste preference) 

Garish with a wedge of peach, ice optional.

Pro Tip: If fresh peaches are not in season to make your own fresh purèe, most grocery stores will carry glass jars of “peach nectar” in the juice isle. It’s a thicker, less processed versions of juice. It’s perfect for this recipe. If you are local to Edmonton, The Italian Market in Little Italy carries it and tons of bitters for other cocktail adventures.
