My Nested Bean Sleep Sack GIVEAWAY!

Hi mamas with little ones! There are a select few of you who have babies that have always slept peacefully for hours through the night. I am incredibly happy for you. Motherhood is no piece of cake for anyone! Then there is the rest of us *cough* myself included! Let me tell you – there is hope to sleep again. I am finding that sometimes it is the simplest fix (and other times there is no fix

Books for Moms

Childbirth + Baby Books That Every Mama (or Mom-to-Be) Needs to Read!

When I found out I was pregnant I initially went online and googled everything! After a few weeks of way too much information floating around in my head I decided that was it! I didn’t want to think about anything anymore and just followed my instincts instead! There were so many conflicting pieces of information on what you should do and shouldn’t anyhow. So I ate a balanced diet, exercised regularly and stayed as stress-free

Christmas Tree Farm

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

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


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.

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
