Answer The Tullyphone’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide & Giveaways!

Best 2016 Holiday Gift guide


It’s that time of year again when the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season has us in overdrive. What do I buy whom, where do they have it and will they like it? Don’t worry, these were all questions we had asked ourselves before contacting sponsors in which we wanted to work with. The end result is that if you see it on our website, although the products are supplied and may come across as sponsored, rightfully it’s not. Why? These are products we would love to see under our tree for Christmas, and seeing them here, well it means they passed our reviewing process to make it under our tree. We truly hope you enjoy checking out our picks and thanks to many of the guide sponsors, we have some fantastic giveaways throughout. If you enjoy it as much as we did putting it together for you, please share so that others have a chance to read about our great finds too! Read More

Disney’s Pete’s Dragon flies into your home November 29th.

Disney's Pete's Dragon available November 29th

Coming to a living room near you on November 29th, 2016 is Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. Oh boy let me tell you how exciting this is for me. This film is a remake of its original that debuted in 1977, the year I was born, and remember watching it over and over. A fantastic story of survival, a mystic dragon and a friendship that can’t be broken. Although it is hard to remake a classic film that everyone has come to know, Walt Disney Studios did a great job of doing just that and bringing you right back to when the Magic dragon once took to the skies.Read More

The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is based on the novel written by Roald Dahl in 1982. The movie revolves around the friendship of an orphaned girl (Sophie a 10-year-old) whom becomes friends with a kind and compassionate giant, hence the name BFG. He takes her to where Giants live, or giant country in order to try to stop the man-eating giants in the human world.

What would you say to your younger self if you had the chance? #Streamteam

Netlix asked what i would say to my younger self.


Netflix asked what I would say to my younger self. Writing a note such as the one I have for this months post may make you feel like you failed at something, when it is actually quite the opposite. It just proves how much you were able to overcome, your triumphs, goals crushed, life lived! Think about it. If you are writing the list to your younger self, it would be how to take an easier route to get where you are right now, would it not? I mean, unless you don’t like the lifestyle you live right now, then in that case write it to your present self. The great purpose I found in doing it, was the fact I can give it to our daughter so that she may look at it from time to time and choose not to make some of the mistakes I have, and find her own path a little easier. Some great Netflix originals show some woman in very different environments doing exactly that. Some making worse choices than the others, in the end, just trying to live the life they had hoped for.

A Holiday Giveaway from bloggers to our readers

Happy Holidays Blogger Giveaway

It’s almost time…. It’s almost time! I know getting down to the last few weeks we are all feeling the pressure of the Holiday season. The time restraints, shopping for the right gifts, for the right person and having enough money to do so. Let’s face it, whether we need to buy one gift, or twenty, have a big feast or small. We easily find ways to go a little overboard with spending during the season. Together with some amazing bloggers, we wanted to give back from our own pockets, as a gesture of thanks and Holiday spirit. Whether you take time from your day to like a picture on our social media accounts, read a post or two on our blog or comment anywhere, we appreciate it more than you know. As much as we write for ourselves, it is equally for you, as without readership our words are silent.Read More

The Holidays are literally right around the corner and Crayola for our daughter is a staple, much like it was when both Sherri and I were children. In continuing the tradition, there is just something about having something to be creative and artistic. We really can’t say our daughter Cadence has a problem in this area as she is quite creative, however, she is so excited when receiving new products to do it with that she just wants to dive right in. Over the past few weeks, she and her cousin Jasmine tried out the products we are recommending for your budding artist this upcoming holiday and would love to tell you a little about each. Read More

Maplelea Dolls teach diversity and Canadian heritage. #MapleleaLove

Our daughter loves her Canadian Maplelea doll

We had decided when getting Cadence her Canadian Maplelea doll, that her cousin Jasmine, being a huge doll fan too, should be part and purchase one for her as well. When they found out, it was like Christmas had come early. Once we received our tracking number, and knew what day they were arriving, they were like a couple of puppies in the window, watching for the mailman! The time passed and the questions came, “are they on their way? Do you see them? Are you sure their coming?” If you are a parent you get the picture, right? Four hours later, they FINALLY arrived (longest morning of my life) and then I didn’t see the girls the rest of the day.
