hey dads

Father’s day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate your favourite dads than giving them a plaid shirt from the Wear Plaid for Dads HBC campaign for Prostate Cancer Cancer.

I love this campaign. Probably because I love plaid. Who doesn’t? PlaidSHirtsWhen you purchase any of the 6 select Hudson North plaid sport shirts, $12 from each shirt will be donated to Prostate Cancer Canada. On Friday, June 17, Wear Plaid for Dad to help protect the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Oh!!! And please think about signing up all the guys in your life for the 2016 Bare All For The Barre event. Registration is now open and we have been working really hard to make this the best year yet. If you don’t believe me when I say it is an awesome event for a great cause… ask one of the 100 guys who participated last year!B4B-Teasers_Warmup

gift guide for the guys

I have six guys to shop for this year and they range in the age of nine to +60… Because I am a little overwhelmed, I decided to make an inspiration board to get me on the right track. Similar to my favourite things post, I am keeping everything under $50 because even thought I love them all, I have a budget. My guys are a mix of sporty, laid back and enjoy a nice bevy. They ski, snowboard, swim, play soccer and eat good food but may not always be the chef…

Please let me know if you have more great ideas. And if you think you are one of my six, sorry for the potential spolier. For the boys
