{FAMILY} Treat Yourself To Truffles, Flowers & A Float This Mother’s Day [GIVEAWAY]

I love seeing the looks on my children’s faces as they waddle into my bedroom in the wee hours of Mother’s Day morning. They serve breakfast in bed (usually toast with jam, and a cup of coffee), and gift me their handmade crafts. As they sneak their hands in, hurriedly helping me to unwrap their creations, they ramble on rambunctiously about […]

{FAMILY} Monster Trucks Aren’t Just For Boys

I’ll confess, each year when I see that the Monster Jam® event is coming to town, I suggest that my husband take my son for a boys night out. Foolishly, the thought of taking the girls hadn’t ever crossed my mind. Not only does Monster Jam® offer fun for the whole family, but it features highly-skilled […]

{FOOD} Surprise Your Sweetheart With A Foodie Prize Pack

There’s one thing that I love (almost) as much as I love my family: food – so it makes perfect sense for me to celebrate the upcoming day of love with the gift of grub! Through my business, I’ve been fortunate to work with Brad Hill – an incredible photographer and publisher of the Foodie Book series. […]

{FAMILY} The Nutcracker: Celebrate Christmas With Clara

To those who know me or who have been following my blog, it’s no secret that I’m a fan of the Nutcracker ballet. I’ve seen the holiday classic for 35 consecutive years now – 3 times last year alone, and 2 times planned for this year. Each year I wonder if I’ll tire of the […]

{FAMILY} The Nutcracker: A Reignited Passion For Dance

Last year, after 4 years of taking weekly ballet classes, my daughter decided to take a break from the classical dance genre to try something new. At first, my heart sank. I had grown up with a passion for the arts, and watching my little girl sauté and pirouette on stage each year had made me […]

{FAMILY} Back-To-School Finds: Butler Overboots

We’ve had months of beautiful Summer weather in Vancouver, but with the return of the rain comes the return of routine for many families like ours, as we prepare our children for back to school. And while I’m looking forward to the excitement of a new school year, this time of year is always especially chaotic as […]

{FAMILY} You Can’t Handle The Tooth!

Fact: teething bites (pun very much intended). I’m on my third tooth-bearing child, and let me tell you, it doesn’t get any easier. No matter how much practice you get, those baby chiclets will sneak up on you, and hit you like a slap in the face. One minute your baby is sleeping well and melting your heart […]

{FAMILY} Why I Quit Using Cloth Diapers

I successfully used cloth diapers for baby #3, and I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it for as long as I did (almost a year). I saved a lot of money (especially since the cloth diapers I was using had a great ROI – I was able to sell them for a great […]

{FAMILY} BABYBJÖRN Bouncer Mini

BABYBJÖRN has always been a trusted brand in my house. All three of my children spent their earliest months cradled in the comfort of a BABYBJÖRN carrier, and I felt comfortable knowing that they were safe and secure, snuggled up against my body. Last month I was invited to a BABYBJÖRN product launch, and I couldn’t wait to […]

Light Up The Holidays With The Nutcracker Ballet {Giveaway}

Last year was the first year that I was able to share my annual holiday tradition of seeing the Nutcracker ballet with my daughter, and it was a memorable mother-daughter experience that we will never forget. It was the first time that my little ballerina was able to watch professional dancers perform the Christmas-themed ballet on stage, and she […]
