Honey, we’re home! That’s how we truly feel about life in Alberta. Having grown up in Quebec and British Columbia respectively, my husband and I are so happy that we are raising our family in Alberta. I was admittedly terrified when we decided to make the move … but now I have nightmares that we have to leave. To celebrate our second year in this beautiful province, I’m hosting my second #Albertaversary, featuring six #AlbertaStrong mom-owned brands and businesses. Read More

I don’t know what the weather has been like in your neck of the woods, this spring, but here in Calgary it seems Mother Nature can’t decide what she wants to do. One day it’s snowing, the next it’s sunny and warm, and some days it’s doing both! Finding just the right thing to layer over my babywearing self for jaunts to the playground can be tricky at best. I don’t want to end up overheating, but I also don’t want to find myself caught in a sudden snowfall without a layer of warmth. This is where Layer Your Love‘s Sweater Wrap comes to the rescue. Layer Your Love is run by the always lovely Melanie Gallant. Based out of the Niagara region of Ontario, Melanie makes custom babywearing and maternity outerwear to get moms (and moms to be) through all the seasons comfortably. When she asked if I’d be interested in checking out her babywearing Sweater Wrap, I was elated! This is the time of year when what I really need is a way to add a bit of warmth while babywearing, but still have the option to cool off quickly and easily. The Layer Your Love Sweater Wrap does that and it’s stylish to boot! Read More

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, but for 2017 I wanted to make a real change in one area of my life. I wanted to switch to using reusable menstrual products (RUMPs) 100% of the time. I already went back to using a menstrual cup in the summer of 2016, and I have a serious love for my Öko Créations pantyliners I started using around the same time. I was firmly on my way to being a RUMPs convert by the end of 2016, so making the change to go reusable all the time seemed like something I was absolutely ready to commit to. Why? For starters, RUMPs are better for me and better for the environment. The other reason? They actually work! But what about cloth pads? This was a territory I had not yet ventured into. I hadn’t used pads on a regular basis in a really long time (aside from using them during the first handful of weeks postpartum), but since I already loved my Öko Créations liners, I jumped at the chance to try Öko Créations cloth pads. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! Read More

Les Produits de MaYa‘s liniment is a staple in my house. I first discovered this amazing product over a year ago, and it was easily one of the best products I tried in 2016. What exactly is liniment? In a nutshell, it’s an olive oil and lime water based cleansing milk that’s made primarily for cleaning baby bums. What’s in Les Produits de MaYa’s liniment? The ingredients are simple, natural, and mostly organic. All the varieties are made with certified organic extra virgin first cold pressed olive oil, lime water (which is not citrus fruit water, but rather calcium hydroxide dissolved in water), certified organic carnauba wax, grapefruit seed extract, and vitamin E. The additional ingredients of certified organic coconut oil and certified organic shea butter are added to the coconut oil, shea butter, and coconut oil with shea butter varieties. It’s also certified vegan. If you’ve never heard of liniment and aren’t sure what all the fuss is about, you can read my full review of Les Produits de MaYa’s liniment. Recently, Les Produits de MaYa introduced a new larger size bottle of their liniment and it has me all excited! Here’s what you need to know: Read More
