Sexism Disrupted: 5 practical tips for promoting female excellence

Today I am pleased to launch a new section on my blog: Sisterhood Saturdays, dedicated to passing the mic, amplifying the voices of others and giving badass women a platform to share their stories and expertise. I believe in community over competition.  In a world where it’s all who you know, its high time that the…

Fallow Clothing: Made with Freedom in mind

It’s a beautiful thing with passion and purpose align. It’s an even more beautiful thing when companies of integrity find a way to incorporate ethics, sustainability and social justice into the very ethos of their business. This is the way of the future.  And I am incredibly proud when I can call the trailblazers, innovators…

It’s A….

Woohoo! Halfway there! We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and were so excited to get a chance to see baby #2 again and find out the gender! Baby kept dancing around and kicking the tech’s wand; It was pretty funny to see a glimpse into this little one’s personality already. After a little…

Eco-Beauty with Elate

Let’s face it; as women, most of us wear at least a little bit of makeup every day. For something that has become such a daily ritual in most of our lives, it only makes sense for us to seek out something that is not only good for us, but also good for the earth…

Lately // Summer 2016

And just like that Autumn and her cool breeze are rolling in as inevitably as the changing leaves upon the late Summer trees. Perhaps it was because I spent all of June and July under the haze of first trimester pregnancy nausea or the coolness of the July weather we had here in BC, but…

Candles Creating Opportunity

Prosperity Candle It’s a daily scene in our home. The lights are dim, cooling fan softly blowing near the window in his room, as my little boy snuggles deeper into the cove of my neck and we rock together to the gentle way of our joint heartbeats. He’s growing so quickly these days and soon…

Second Trimester Bump Style

As I write this I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and I can’t believe we are almost half-way there! While the first trimester seemed to last forever (thanks, morning sickness…), the second trimester is flying by. If it weren’t for the soft flutters that I feel against my womb in the early morning and late…

Our first home: a look back 

Although we moved out three weeks ago, today is the first day under new ownership for our tiny (former) home. It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to the home that built us; where we started our friendship, had our first kiss, said our marriage vows and gave birth to our baby. So much has happened here and…

Mias’s Moccs Let’s talk shoes. Every mom knows, comfortable and stylish moccasins are a staple in every baby and toddler wardrobe! They’re just so comfortable, perfect in every weather and look great with every outfit! As with all things, I’m always on the hunt to find the best company to support and I think I’ve…

First Trimester Update

Did you hear the news? We brought a little someone back from Nazareth and we are absolutely thrilled about it! We knew we wanted another baby and a sibling for Chayton. So as soon as Chayton had his first birthday, baby fever was on! But with our trip coming up, we also knew that it…

My favourite part of Ireland

The Skellig Coast Rural, wild, unspoilt, rich in history and ready for adventure: just a few of the reasons why the Skellig Coast on the Ring of Kerry was my favourite part of Ireland! After a very comfortable and rejuvenating sleep in our little apartment at the Westcove Farmhouse and Bakery, we set out to explore…

Visiting The Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way

“Which country is on the top of your list for places to visit next?” He asked. I sighed. For a travel lover like myself, this is my favourite type of question but not after midnight when I’ve already been awake thirty hours attending to a birth. With a sleepy yawn, and some slight annoyance, I…
