FEATURE: The Shoe Of The Summer; Native Shoes

THE SHOE OF THE SUMMER The statement is a BIG ONE, and there is no truer words spoken. Any human who has ever taken a child to the beach knows the sheer brilliance that is the Native Shoe. They’re incredibly lightweight, shock absorbent, washable, waterproof, and odor-resistant which translates to shoes the entire family can wear to the beach (or the water park) and never take off.  Native Shoes Website // Facebook // Twitter // Instagram Clearly were not at the beach here, nor were we headed there, but it’s clearly another reason why they get the “shoe of the summer” award from me; they can go from the streets to the […]

PREGNANCY: Shoes For Comfort & Style

Swearing under your breath every step you take because of a uncomfortable shoe choice is totally okay when it’s your first pregnancy, but when you have playschool ears around you most of your days, it’s probably best you don’t leave your comfort (and childs vocabulary) up to fate.  Today, for you, and for the sake of your children, I’m sharing my top 5 shoes that are not only crazy comfortable but ridiculously stylish. If I could live in Natives I probably would, and if you’ve bumped into me grocery shopping or even at the park you would think I actually do, but as much as comfort is my […]

FASHION: or lack thereof’

You know why you don’t see weekly fashion posts here? Oh! Let me list the ways; Some days I don’t get out of my pajamas (don’t say you don’t do it). I’m not always fashionable, hard to believe, unless of course you caught me at Starbucks this morning. Sometimes laundry doesn’t make the priority list that week, not my basket anyways. Our home has horrible lighting for photographs, straight up! The weather sometimes plays mean and I just can’t get outside to take photographs (see excuse 4 for backup) Monday outfits are all about quick comfort because for me (and many others) they’re work days. I literally roll out […]

FASHION: Black Friday Shopping Haul

As promised, I wanted to share with you all the amazing deals I got this past Friday at Guildford Town Centre. Here is why I find it so great, HELLO! CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DEALS. I mean I used to joke around about how genius it would be if a family could pretend Christmas was the day after boxing day, hitting the stores on the wild but oh-so-worth-it day of crazy shopping deals and get everyone’s gifts all in one day.  Did someone say $100 gift card giveaway? I would keep scrolling if I were you! This right here is why I love Black Friday so much, and my love for Guildford […]

FEATURE: Boots by SOREL. Family by me.

HIS: Old Navy Shirt & Jeans // Gap Toque & Scarf (similar) // Boots c/o SOREL HERS: Old Navy Shirt, Vest (similar), Jeans & Necklace // Boots c/o SOREL THE LITTLE: Joe Fresh Sweater & Skirt // Over the Loom Socks // Boots c/o SOREL It used to be that we’d have to compromise on our fashion in the poor weather; you know what I mean, the cumbersome basic black boot that could easily be shared between male and female family members without any question. Yeah those! We all had them, because what else was there? We’re excited (and relieved) to share that we’ve partnered with SOREL this winter to show you just how stylish fall and winter […]

{mini} FASHION: Patterns & Layers

{Joe Fresh Shirt //  Joe Fresh Pants  //  H&M Vest  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Miss Giggle Buns Headband} Can I get this in adult size please?  Layers are really what it’s all about when it comes to this unpredictable weather we have here in Vancouver. We wake and it’s grim and foggy and dress accordingly, by noon the sun is shining, we pass people wear sunnies and we’re both sweltering in our so called weather appropriate ensembles. That’s the beauty of layers, they mask the foolishness of believing a morning face to be true to it’s word; you can remove a layer or two and fit in with the crowd quite […]

A DAY IN THE LIFE: A Working Mom

Sunday was wild, and not in regular form. It had nothing to do with excessive meltdowns or a child who is refusing to eat, but everything to do with a runway show and changing a woman from one wedding dress to another in under 60 seconds. Not sure if you all fully know, but I work on weekends at Isabelle’s Bridal, a Wedding Boutique in North Vancouver. My great friends Kasia and Basia purchased the store just over a year ago and I’ve been there as a Wedding Dress Consultant for the past 5 or 6 months. The Wedding Season is ramping up and beginning now and into […]

The clothing is so on point, trend wise, and it’s crazy affordable. Oh […]

HEALTH: 3 Reasons To Treat Yourself!

1. You’ll be more active; here is how I figure. When you look good, you feel good, we all know that, when you feel good you want to push yourself to continue to feel that way, right? Tasting small victories can go a long way for the body and mind. So in theory spending money to get new active wear you love to get into will only push yourself to get out in it more often. Right? 2. It’s more affordable than ever; quality active wear doesn’t need to put you behind on your mortgage payment, not with how main stream trendy active wear has become. Case […]
