Magnolia Ripkin Your Mouthy Aunt

Magnolia Ripkin Gives In Your Face and Humorus Advice to Powered by Mom Readers

Because Everyone is Entitled to her Opinion

Magnolia ripkin

It seems that on every street corner there’s someone hocking their goods on how they can make your life better from self help books to life coaches and more. The industry tries to take advantage of the opportunity to “help you”. Many are a cookie cutter solution, assuming that one size (or one advice) fits all. So much of it is just so well “beige”, colorless, useless and just plain boring and whitewashed.

We don’t need white washed advice, it’s rarely helpful,  we need a proverbial slap (maybe a really one too) in the face with a dash of humor to get us thinking and out of the beige. Well some of our readers are getting just that from our guest author Magnolia Ripkin! [Read more...]

Air and Water Portable Ice Maker Review

Powered by Mom Blog brings you a Newair AI-215R Portable Ice Maker Review

air and water ice maker 1

Powered by Mom Blog recently received the Newair AI-215R Portable Ice Maker to review from Air-n-Water.com this summer. We had the ideal event to test out this portable ice maker as we had our annual summer barbeque with our close friends and family so we had about 20 people here in total. Let me begin by saying that it was extremely easy to set up and use, there’s not much you have to do to get this ice maker up and running. Don’t look too closely but you can see my reflection in the ice maker as I’m taking the picture or at least a reflection of my slippers lol [Read more...]


Parenting 101 Tips and Giveaway

Parenting 101 Tips and Giveaway open to Canada Only ends 8/31

Parenting 101 giveaway

I have to admit before my daughter was born I wasn’t even sure I ever wanted to be a mom. The thought of being totally responsible for another human being was almost horrifying, what if I messed up and totally warped them? Well almost 13 years later with my daughter’s 13th birthday fast approaching this September I’m happy to say I have not warped her mind (I think lol), she’s a wonderful girl and now I can’t imagine not being her mom.

This is my daughter when she was a newborn ahhh the memories

Thankfully for me I had family and friends I could turn to for support and sometimes just to listen when I had those mommy moments where I was sure I was going to lose my mind or make some horrible mistake. I think those of us who have such a support network are lucky and if you don’t have one believe me you can create such a network. I thought it would be wonderful to share some of those Parenting 101 tips that were shared with me, ones I’ve learned on my own and an opportunity for our community to share as well!  [Read more...]

Sponsored by Holland House and hosted by Mom Does Reviews

WE love to grill on the bbq all year long if we can as everything seems to taste so good when it’s been grilled. It’s also a healthier way to cook your food, just add some herbs or a nice marinade and you’re good to go. A good cooking wine can also add some amazing flavor to food on the grill! [Read more...]
