Ontario has now made it clear that distracted driving is a serious issue and will be dealt with accordingly.
New fines have now been added to the proposed legislation. It is expected to pass this spring, and has support from all the parties. Here’s what you should know moving forward (no pun intended):

  • ·         Distract driving fines increased to $280 from $155 (Tuesday – today) regardless of the legislation.
  • ·         Fines for using cellphones while driving range from $300 to $1,000, plus three demerit points (according to the changes in the Highway Traffic Act)
  • ·         Fines for opening a door in a cyclist’s path range from $300 to $1,000, plus three demerit points. Motorists have to stay one metre away from cyclists on the road.
  • ·         Fines for cyclists not using required reflectors and lights range from $60 to $500.

The word on the (stockmarket) street is that Wal-Mart is currently out to run GameStop out of business. The new trade-in program they are initiating will take a big bite out of GameStop’s major business play. Already, GameStop’s shares are approximately 6% down in trading.

Wal-Mart announced the official start of the program will be March 26, and every PlayStation, Xbox, or any other pre-owned video game trade-in will be exchanged for gift cards which can be used at any Wal-Mart or Sam’s Club purchase (online or in stores). It is currently only said to be participating in stores across the U.S., but will be become available to Canadians soon.

Wal-Mart just celebrated their 20 years in Canada. The first one opened March 17, 1994.

This has got to be my absolute favourite photo-editing app. They provide tons of amazing filters and frames that a professional photographer or novice would enjoy.

They also provide a square crop feature which is nice (especially for Instagram users). While also providing little sisters and decor for those who enjoy spicing up their photos a little further. Adjusting exposure, brightness, sharpness, and those type of photograph specifications are made easy with this app.

{ Spotlight } “Plant Nanny” App

We all know how hard it is for me to drink water. I got scolded by my doctor for only having a single bottle of water a week. Now that I visit the gym frequently, I manage to have about a bottle every other day, but I’m sure you’re all aware that the proper amount to have on average is 8 glasses a day.

Plant Nanny helps its users regulate how much water they drink by providing a cute, interactive, and educational user-interface. Every plant require 8 glasses of water to survive the day, so when you have one, you give your plant one. There are several other options of how to take your water (ie. mug, bottle, etc.) so you can adjust it for accuracy.

At only $1.99, I find this alarming wake-up app a bit pricey, but it’s worth the price if you find yourself always hitting the snooze button. Find it in the App Store here.

Most people know it’s incredibly hard to wake up in the morning. Sometimes, we don’t even hear our alarm clocks. But what if I said I found something that will change how you wake-up in the morning…

This alarm app is designed to help users wake up in the morning by not giving the users any easy way of shutting it off other than to shake the phone like crazy. There is no snooze button, and the volume cannot be lowered.

This was fun to film and edit. I think it’s only because I was in a really good mood before I did it, haha.

Either way, I hope you enjoy my very first monthly favourites video. And if you guys enjoyed it, please let me know by giving me a thumbs up on the video, so I can continue the series.

I really enjoy tag videos because they’re so easy to shoot, I just wish I had a giant list of them so I could pick and choose which ones to do each week.

Items mentioned:

  • Ponds cleansing towelettes
  • Michael Todd’s jojoba charcoal facial scrub
  • Urban Decay’s Naked Basics palette
  • Bliss Spa’s Vanilla & Bergamot body butter

{ Spotlight } “Plants vs. Zombies 2”

plants vs zombie

The sequel to the much loved strategy story continues to keep you on the edge with new offense zombies, and new plants to defend your lawn with. Join Crazy Dave on a travel through time to defeat and defend your home base from zombies in Ancient Egypt, the Wild West, or even in the Pirate Seas.

Lightning Reed, and Bloomerang are only two of the new powerful plants you will need to help defend your lawn. There are new power-ups and plant foods to help assist you in the new dimensions.

The graphics are also way better in the sequel, and the plant/zombie movement (not that it matters to anyone else but me) is much more fluid. You’ll notice you the zombie’s arm swinging much more.

The app is currently free in the App Store, but there’s an additional cost for extra dimensions. Even if you’re only getting one dimension, it’s free, so why not? Get it here.
