Motherhood; there’s a tea for that (+GIVEAWAY)

A bold statement, but a true statement: Motherhood is tough! We all have something that can fix the worst of days, those chaotic moments you can’t believe are real life, those you can come from around the corner Don DeLuise, anytime now moments. Be it indulging in your absolute favorite chocolate bar, a date with the spa, or a little retail therapy, we’ve all got something that fixes a messy moment. Some use simple techniques like deep breaths with your eyes closed, and counting backwards from 10. One I’ve tried, that I don’t recommend is the “laugh it off” technique. The people in Starbucks have no-time for your shenanigans, and […]

Our Family Dinner Rituals +Ceramictopia

Family Dinners are BIG in our family. Birthdays, Holidays, Sundays, any excuse to catch-up, reconnect and share good food. Everyone who can make it comes, more than one option of meal is made (because kids), the table is scattered with dishware, drinks, decor, it’s really the best way to celebrate ANYTHING. Last weekend my parents came over to hang out. We hadn’t seen them in a few days and we were beginning to miss their faces, so Sofia rang them up Saturday morning and asked for them to come “play”. They accepted the invite as any good Nana and Papa would put in a tight spot with […]

Apparently it’s Salmon Spawning Season {VLOG}

DID YOU KNOW? It’s Salmon Spawning Season here in Vancouver? No?! Neither did we…  We stumbled across it last week and decided to venture out and find a spot that would get us up close and personal with some spawning salmon. I was so excited to show the girls the beauty of Mother nature. Although our first location was a BUST, we eventually found them and goodness me, what a sight!     CHECK IT OUT! CLICK HERE   *** Are you following us on social media?

For Fox Sake {what stella wore}

What Stella Wore Fog + Fern Top // Joe Fresh Jeans // Gap Shoes // Fog + Fern Headband I mean she wears A LOT of clothing! It’s safe to say I dress and re-dress Stella Grace 3 times a day (because we’re all about self feeding right now). I feel like if anyone knows clothes it would be a parent at this very stage. We’re stretching, pulling, rolling and tossing so many items of clothing off our babes and into the hamper a day it should be a sport. If anyone is going to be a concessionaire of quality clothing it’s us! AM I RIGHT?! We […]

Visit to Taves Family Farm {vlog}

We went to Taves Family Farm this past weekend and OH WHAT FUN we had! Although crazy busy we made the most of our time there. Call me crazy but I’m not much for waiting in line for 20 minutes to use the restroom, doesn’t go over well with little people. We will have to head back on a weekday when it’s less Disneyland in August and more like Vancouver in November.   Check it out! CLICK HERE   *** Are you following us on social media?

#LMMSELFLOVE: Finding your Unicorn Bra

  Can I tell you something? Can you believe I’ve never owned a properly fitted bra? For the past…. Hmmmm for number sake let’s say 20 years, I’ve gone about life, wearing a bra I assumed was my size, and just like the rest of you, upon calling it a day it was the first thing I flung off; because OH GAWD was it uncomfortable.  Over the last few months I’ve been tackling a PRETTY SENSITIVE but rather important subject; self love. Trying to get down to the bottom of why I find it so damn difficult to love myself as is. Breaking down and pushing aside the stereotypes […]

Stella’s Bumble Bee Birthday {this is 1}

Birthday’s should BUZZ! From the chatter among guests catching up, to the shrieks of excitement from the littles who’ve had far too much sugar, and the balloons that just couldn’t stand one more moment of heat… POP! We celebrated Stella Grace’s 1st Bumble Bee Birthday over the weekend and what a lovely day it was. Some of our very closest friends and family gathered to celebrate this little bumble bee of ours and OF THE FUN that was had. From eating a delicious lunch to snacking on some sweets almost too beautiful to eat, to making stuffed unicorns and getting the most glitter’tastic tattoos (by yours truly)… […]

Kid Spy Agents that solve the most random mystery’s with the funniest of bad-guys. Think Jamie Jam who covers things in Jam and clearly needs to be stopped, or the Noisemaker […]

Seattle’s 5 Insta-Worthy Selfie Spots

I’m not claiming something you don’t already know, Seattle’s beautiful. What I am doing is showing you 5 INSTA-WORTHY SELFIE SPOTS you must visit (and instagram) the next time you get to the city. The list could’ve been made a MILE long, with so many gorgeous angles to share the city, I’ve managed to narrow it down to my top 5 spots I like to SNAP, FILTER and HASHTAG at an arms length in Seattle. Seattle is by far our families favorite road trip destination, offering something for everyone from the Woodland Park Zoo, to Everett Kids Museum, Trader Joe’s, Pike Place Market and of course Target (because […]
