Twistshake

Favorite Mama Swag

Hello Beauties! Today I thought I would chat about some of my favorite mama swag today! 1. Twistshake I was approached by the Swedish company, Twistshake (see above) to try out my choice of one of their products. I absolutely adore their cute baby bottles and sippy cups in the sweetest pastel colours. I have my eye on a beige one! J loves his 180 ml bottle in baby blue. It is BPA free and

Christmas Tree Cutting Day: A Family Tradition

For the past 4 years our tight-knit friend group has visited a tree farm to cut down a tree. This was baby J’s first year joining us! I always get so stoked for an excuse to take him to the countryside. The whole family bundled up, although this weekend the weather was very moderate! Merry Farms in Hamilton, ON had great selection. My husband and I chose to not get a tree this year but

Recent House Projects

I must admit being a stay-at-home mom is much different than I anticipated! I have found that while baby is sleeping, rather than “sleep when he sleeps” I like to do house projects. The creative me is still very much alive and I figure that with this new life transition I can channel some time into adding more of what I love into our habitat. Below are a few new projects I have been working

Baby Playroom Reveal: One That Will Grow With J

Last week I was working on a little project – creating a fun space for me and baby J to spend time in through the winter ahead and beyond. I am a huge nature lover so it goes without saying that I wanted to bring the outdoors in as much as possible! I gathered some plants into one of the biggest and brightest rooms of our house. My home studio is at the opposite end

Why I Chose to Keep My Baby’s Photos Off of the Internet

As I mom I enjoy reading posts of mommy life and in moderation I love scrolling through the photos of other moms I follow to see how their babies have grown/are growing. I enjoy the real, gritty photos along with the bright, airy, staged and edited ones! Pre-baby I came to the decision that I did not want to post photos of my little one on the internet – is that strange? I did not

My Favourite All Natural Products for Baby J

It’s no secret that the whole natural product scene has grown in popularity in the past few years and become much more mainstream. It seems like every company nowadays has a “clean” line or makes claims on their products being pure and straight from the earth. One thing I have often found frustrating is once I read the ingredients on the labels I come across chemicals I do not recognize and cannot pronounce! If I

Ruffle Top

Mama Style Diaries: Ruffles + Skinnies = LOVE

I love outfits that are actually effortless but look like you put work into them! This gorgeous look (that I am aiming to wear a couple more times before the cold weather hits) fits the bill perfectly! I wore it the other day while my hubs and I went out to run a few errands, take a quick photo shoot and grab a cold drink. I have always had my eye on a top like

5 Ways My Life Has Changed Since Having a Baby

Many of you who read my blogs every week know that I waited awhile (married 6 years) prior to having a wee bebe. The reason for this is that I wanted to accomplish and experience some personal milestones and goals first in order to be fully present with no regrets when my little one came along. It also really helped to have a tight-knit group of friends, many of which did not/do not have children.

Zaful Sweater

Athleisure Cool for Fall

Although I do like dressing up, there is a side of me that also loves to thoughtfully piece together casual looks. I have always been drawn to slouchy pieces – over sized jackets and sweaters, wide leg pants, large scarves and flowing vests to name a few. I am also a really big fan of athleisure. I am not saying you will spot me in yoga pants running around doing errands anytime soon, but it

Lily-Jade Madeline in Brandy

Stylish Diaper Bags for Busy Mamas

When I started shopping for baby gear I had it in mind to splurge on two items – a stroller and diaper bag. I was more than willing to purchase second-hand baby clothes and save money on other items but I figured that these two essentials in particular needed to have excellent quality, functionality and style. I ended up choosing a Lily-Jade bag; their Madeline style in the Brandy colour. Today I dish on what
