Sailun Car Clinic

 

 

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Sailun Car Clinic at Coast Tire here in Saint John on Crown Street.  This clinic was a great opportunity to learn about Sailun tires, but also about car care in general.  As a young girl I used to follow my Father around the yard and help him when he worked on our cars, but it is always great to have refresher.

The morning started off with a session learning about the Sailun brand and some specifics about your tires.  We talked about alignment and proper air pressure in your tires.  I loved the analogy they used about alignment in your car.  Tires wear just like anything that we use over time.  But if they are out of alignment they will wear unevenly.  Just like the soles of our shoes, one usually wears differently than the other as we aren't aligned perfectly.  While I was sitting there I immediately checked the soles of my shoes, this is so true!  Just another reason why tire rotation and alignments on your vehicle are important, so your tires wear properly. 



Do you know where to look to get the information about your tires?  If you look in your car, most models have the above tag somewhere inside the drivers side door.  Much like a care label for our clothes, this is the care label for our tires.  Following the recommended tire pressure and size tires here, will help prolong the life of your tire and car.  Not to mention keep you safe while travelling.


 

Next we moved out to the garage to take a peek under the hood.  When looking under the hood it is important to pay attention to the different pictures on the caps.  The folks at coast tire stressed the importance of paying attention to the windshield washer fluid cap and the radiator fluid cap as they are usually very close together.  You do not want to mix those up when adding fluid.  If you are ever unsure of what a picture on the caps mean, always refer to your owners manual.  One surprising thing that I did learn is that in some vehicles the battery is under the seat, instead of under the hood.  

 
It is also important to check your dash lights when you get in your car.  Turn your key just one click and it should show you all your lights on your dash.  This will help familiarize yourself with the different symbols.  Also, if you are driving and one of those lights come on and you are unsure of what it is always check your owners manual.  Yellow or orange lights mean that you can get it to a garage but take it in right away.  A red light on the dash, you should pull over and call a tow truck.  I didn't know this before but it makes sense and is good to know!


 
 The last station was looking at how to change a tire and where to properly place a jack under your car in case  you had to change a tire.  An important skill to know how to do, especially if you travel!  This morning was very imformative and fun!  I definitely feel more educated on Sailun tires and my own car care.

Now for the best part - you can enter to win a free set of Sailun Tires!!  There are 4 easy ways to enter below.

Thanks to Sailun tires for having me and helping to educate me on their tires!

Kuwalla tees for Father's Day



Images c/o Kuwalla Tee

Father's day is a little over a week away so why not spoil Dad with one of these luxurious Kuwalla tess now made with Supima cotton.  35% longer than regular cottons, Supima cotton is very soft and because fewer fibre ends are exposed there is less pilling over time; keeping Dad's shirts in tip top shape!  No only is Supima cotton stronger and maintains it colour better than regular cotton, it is very resilient and holds its shape very well.  My husband loves his Kuwalla tees and wears all the time.  These basic tees look amazing paired with jeans and a blazer for a night out, throw it on with your shorts to wear to the family BBQ or wear it to the beach this summer.  Whatever your style, Kuwalla tees are the perfect fit for any wardrobe.

Spring Wishlist

spring 2015 wishlist





I am currently in the process of cleaning out my closet (which is a good thing!).  It is making me realize that this is something that I need to do more often and to become wiser in how I use my wardrobe.  Above are a few items that after going through my closet I do not have and want to add. The black jacket has already come home with my from one of my favorite local stores, Je Suis Prest , and I am going to try my hand at making my own distressed skinny jeans out of an old pair that already have a hole in the knee.  I am finding though that the clean out is a slow process, what do you find is the best way to clean out and organize your closet/drawers?

New Arrival

As some of you know we were expecting our 2nd child in April and the baby arrived on April 3rd at 8:37am.  We did not know if we were having a boy or girl, it was a surprise.  Our little bundle of joy, a baby boy arrived as happy and healthy as can be!  Please welcome Philip Gregory!

We were also lucky enough to have these gorgeous newborn photos of Philip done when he was 10 days old.  If you are looking for a fabulous newborn photographer in the Saint John area be sure to contact Carla at Enchanted Hill Photography.  You can see more of her gorgeous work on Facebook, follow her on instagram or keep up with all her work on her blog.  It was so hard to choose only a few shots but here are some of my favorites!
