Vancouver Fashion Week 2017 {VLOG}

Oh you know, no big deal, just making DREAMS COME TRUE over here! I took Sofia to her first ever Fashion Show during Vancouver Fashion Week, a dream I’ve had for a while that not only came true but minus sitting next to ANNA WINTOUR it was exactly how I imagined. Looking forward to the day Stella Grace can join us! Check it out here>> https://youtu.be/E5JzNY6Rzoc   *** Are you following us on social media?

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 […]

FEATURE: Doodles By Me Shoes

I doubt this is going to come as a surprise but Sofia and I, WE LOVE A GOOD CRAFT. Clearly glitter runs through our veins and if crafting can be hereditary then it’s no doubt she got it from her mama! I stumbled across this company when looking for an indoor shoe that Sofia could take and keep at school. Once the request form rolled out in it entirety (this kindergarten thing is serious business) I was left with a very specific check-list of what they wanted in an indoor shoe for these kidlets. They must be able to put them on themselves (no tie-up shoes) They had […]

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 […]

{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 […]

{nearly} Wordless Wednesday

Outfit Details// Old Navy Vest (similar), Joe Fresh Sweater (similar), Joe Fresh Jeans (on clearance), Target Boots Wordless is not really my thing, if anyone knows me they know I am far from quiet. I do however love the idea of getting away with a picture heavy post, and this is why we take part in Wordless Wednesday. Ours though, we would prefer to call nearly Wordless Wednesday because yeah, it’s what it is. I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.   -anne of green gables Pumpkin patchin’ with the school is what we got up to last week and boy was it […]

{MINI} FASHION: It’s all Black & White

{Joe Fresh Shirt  //  H&M Pants  //  Jacket c/o Memoiyo  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Miss Giggle Buns Headband}   It was one of those morning, we rushed out the door assuming it would be ridiculously hot outside like it had been 2 weeks running, and we step foot out the door and realize we actually may need our jackets. Not only might we need to cover up but those sandles were wearing are probably not appropriate if that nasty rain cloud comes through on her threats. Back in the door to dress according to the weather, grabbed a jacket and switch out our toe bearing shoes for….. BOOTS MAMA! I […]
