Screen time can be such a controversial topic for some, but whether your kid is in front of a screen for hours a day, or closely monitored and time restricted, I think we can all agree that it's great when they're engaging with something that's educational. But, not all apps are created equal and it's surprisingly hard to find good ones that are age appropriate. That's why I've compiled this list of [...]

2020-03-18T00:42:21-07:00March 18th, 2020|Gardening, Home, Lifestyle|9 Comments

I used to suck at plants! It was terrible, I’ve even killed multiple succulents 🙈 but I’ve always loved the feeling they bring into the home and have been determined to turn my black thumb green. Slowly over the last few years I’ve been successful at keeping more and more alive, and that’s in big part to my favourite garden center, GardenWorks Canada and them helping teach me which plants are good [...]

Today's Fashion Friday is totally extra and I'm loving it! Leopard coats can be really intimidating but they're surprisingly versatile and do just as good dressed down as they do dressed up. This particular leopard coat from Shop Beautifully You [gifted] is soooooooooo amazingly soft, I can't stop touching it and rubbing it on my cheeks, seriously, I'm obsessed! It feels like a nice warm fuzzy housecoat that gives you an extra [...]

6 Tips For Surviving 2 Under 2

2020-02-17T23:46:02-08:00January 29th, 2020|Babies, Family, Toddlers|11 Comments

Two under two is no joke. The adjustment period pushed me to a point of exhaustion I didn't know was possible, and every day felt like chaos. I was scared to be left alone with the 2 kids for more than a couple of hours. How would I handle naps? What if the baby is crying and my toddler needs me at the same time? How do I go to the bathroom? [...]

My son loves Curious George, so as his 2nd birthday was approaching I knew I had to throw him a Curious George birthday party. I have so much fun planning parties like this (Low Key Gender Reveal), but I also think things should be kept simple and within budget. The dollar store is my favourite way of doing that! In all honesty, for this Curious George birthday party, I strayed from my [...]

As we all know, life goes by in the blink of an eye. Already my son has turned 2 and my baby girl is 6 months old! Every moment feels so special and like I will hold onto it forever, but as the days go by, everyday duties cycle through, new adventures begin, and I find myself unable to recall moments from the early days. I try to capture as many moments [...]

I love cooking healthy meals for my family at home, but some weeks with the busy life of 2 under 2 it can be a hard task. Meal planning can take too much creative brain work, grocery shopping can be quite the task, and then actually cooking what I thought would be a good idea during the week can be time-consuming and unmotivating. Cue Healthy Meal Plans, a fabulous tool that requires [...]

Kids are serious nutcases and when they're so little their attention spans can be so short so they get bored easily and tug on your pant leg to entertain them for a while. As much as I love playing with my kids, I can't do it all the time, cause this mama needs to get shit done and have a moment to breathe and finish a coffee while it's hot. That's why [...]
