Back-To-School with Walmart

  Summer is nearly over and our minds (including our exhausted bodies) are excited for the school year ahead.  GRADE ONE is a pretty big deal over here; Sofia has mentally convinced herself she is now in a real grade. Unlike the 2 years of pre-school and 1 year of kindergarten, Grade One is different, IT’S A NUMBER which means it’s the real deal now, she’s in SCHOOL! Oh how I love 6-year-old reasoning!   Walmart Canada Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest Similar to what we did last year, we partnered with Walmart on the Back-to-School Apparel Solutions program, and headed straight to where we knew the deals were and our money could be stretched; WALMART! Sofia was given  a $100 […]

Shopping with a baby {vlog}

I DOUBT anyone here thinks it’s a grand idea to shop with a baby in tow, but sometimes it’s not an option. Sometimes this is what needs to be done so you don’t have a baby in her BIRTHDAY SUIT at all times.  Being between sizes is ROUGH, when 3 to 6 months is too small and 6 to 9 months is just too big, the struggle is real!

Grab your Sunnies! {SmartBuyGlasses}

When it comes to sunglasses Sammy and I have always been ones to go for quality over quantity; naturally we gravitate towards sunglasses that are classic and timeless vs trendy and seasonal, so we’re okay with the investment. Even though we know in advance we will have to pay a little more, we will still make an evening of it and research the best deals online. Quite possibly my favorite feature on the SmartBuyGlasses website is their VIRTUAL TRY ON; and it’s not what you think. Throw away what you once knew of testing glasses or sunglasses on an uploaded photo of yourself, they’ve taken this one step […]

FASHION: Disney Clothing for Kids

Mickey Shirt, Jeans, Shoes // Mickey Hat // Minnie Pants, High-Tops // Dumbo Onesie, Dress NOTHING, I mean nothing beats getting the kids pumped for an upcoming Disneyland Vacation than online shopping for some new Disney wardrobe additions. Don’t get me wrong, picking up some Disney clothing in the park is also mandatory, souvenir tee’s are the greatest (hello! adorable pieces they can hang onto for their kids), but why wait to lather them in Disney attire, especially when some retailers have made it so affordable to do so now. After a bit of hunting I noticed that some of my ultimate favorite retailers carry Disney clothing, The Gap, […]

Whistler Traditions {travel + fashion}

Screw Christmas Crackers and New matching pajamas, I’ve managed to make a vacation a holiday tradition in our family…  trust me guys, I’m even baffled by this one.    Sammy and I have been vacationing in Whistler over the Holidays since we first started dating 10yrs ago, ACTUALLY WAIT!  we even went there for our Honeymoon! This folks is why we call Whistler our happy place. We go up as close to Christmas as we can afford (no seriously, that’s the truth!). If we can manage a great rate or snag a Living Social deal early on in the year we go the week before Christmas, if we can’t and we’re hogtied into […]

FASHION: LYST is your new shopping buddy

What do you get when you cross a fashion obsessed woman 3 weeks postpartum, who find herself stuck inside most days due to c-section recovery?

Lyst allows you to save items on a virtual board that you can re-visit again and again and again (as you do). You will be notified of stock alerts, […]

FEATURE: Dressed To Deliver +Giveaway

Packing a hospital bag technically is easy. TECHNICALLY. You could easily just throw some overnight necessities for you, baby and baby daddy in a bag and call it a day. However planning and packing the perfect hospital bag can take some time, thought and worthy efforts. I won’t tap too much into this now as I plan to later this week with a Hospital Bag Must-Have’s list… however today I can’t help but wanna share the brilliance of a company that helps you deliver a baby in style.  DRESSED TO DELIVER Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest // YouTube Dressed to Deliver is a company that makes d-day as […]

FASHION: First Day Fashion Challenge

It’s August, which means with a blink of an eye it’s going to be September and we will all be in back-to-school mode. From the shopping, to school supply checklists and getting back into a daily routine; I don’t know about you but I for one cannot wait. Bring on the early mornings, cereal breakfasts and sense of structure! So for those of you who truly know me, you know I wouldn’t back down to a challenge – especially a fashion challenge. So when we were approached to join a First Day of School Fashion Challenge with Walmart they didn’t even have to finish the pitch and we were sitting pretty, front seat […]

FEATURE: Timi & Leslie Diaper Bag

Second time around we know know better than to not buy a proper Diaper Bag. The over-sized purse that you’ve just managed to squish in all baby, toddler and adult daily necessities into, it’s just not going to cut it this time. Need I remind you how long it just took you to find the nursing cover while your screaming baby serenaded you. I mean a real quote on quote Diaper Bag, one that’s sole purpose is to make motherhood easy (and beautiful). Say hello to the Charlie bag by timi & leslie, make nice with Charlie people because he’s about to blow your mind.  Charlie is […]

FASHION: PinkBlush Maternity +Giveaway

It’s official, I’ve finally found a retailer for Maternity clothing that is everything I’ve been looking for. Clothing options that are on-point with the current styles, in regular and plus size and offer great deals; PinkBlush Maternity.   PinkBlush Maternity Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest // Instagram Maternity clothing can be one of those things that can either make you unhappy with the fit or unhappily broke, and in a worst case scenarios even BOTH. With Sofia I didn’t buy a great deal of maternity clothing, each time I found something I considering buying I was either not 110% happy with it (more of a need driving me […]
