Nadia Carriere is a mom to two girls and a baby boy, a writer and the publisher of Child Mode. As a lover of style and fashion, Nadia found her ‘niche’ and love of children’s clothing while searching for quality items for her family.
Brought to you by Interac Association and TheCo I’m a big fan of the little helpers. The ones that make your life easier in the way of convenience and family function; hands full, children running, tea in hand, juggling everything all at once. When I’m alone, I’m pulling a carry on, in one hand, passport in the other and toting a backpack. It’s a struggle to organize when you’re constantly moving from one errand to the next, from one city to the next. Constantly balancing a million things at the same time. I used to resist what I didn’t know, staying in […] Continue reading →
I had it all planned for months. Hotel was booked, days were taken off, subs were found for classes. Everything was in place. And then the email came in… A newly debuted yoga festival claimed bankruptcy just days before it started. I was planning on taking my three kids for a bonding weekend of yoga, music and the arts. We did the same last year in Tremblant for Wanderlust and it was magical. I’m not one for babying my children and try to immerse them in as many experiences, cultures, and ideas as possible. It’s the way we roll. Yoga […] Continue reading →
Do you see these clips? When I think back to the first memory I ever had of my mom doing my hair, these clips are the first thing that come to my mind. Goody was the best. The only brand my mom would buy for elastics, hairbands and clips. I’d pick another package and she would say, “No, these are better.” And they were. They are. They’re still the first and only brand I choose when I’m looking for hair accessories for my girls. When Goody approached me to work with them on their Ouchless line, I was all in. My eldest […] Continue reading →
I DREAD the winter months. Everyone who knows me can vouch that I loathe everything to do with the white stuff. It’s not just the cold, or the high hydro bills, nor is it the endless shovelling, layers upon layers of clothing, extra laundry or lack of color outside. The fact of the matter is, winter affects me in a negative way. The darkness, the lack of sunshine and Vitamin D intake (even though I take a supplement) take me into a bit of a depression. Mooshinindy has written about her struggle with the same sort of thing and I could relate […] Continue reading →
We’ve been fans of ivviva for a few years now. As an avid lululemon supporter and wearer, when ivivva launched, I was one of the first to cover it. I still have my daughter’s size 4 hoody that I bought and it looks brand new. Anyhow, when they approached me to see if I’d be interested to be a host for their influencer event at their store in the Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket, there was no hesitation on my part. This is one of the perfect examples of a brand that fits with someone’s ideals and belief system. I’m already […] Continue reading →
Well, it’s happened! Stella McCartney Kids has just released their Spring Sumer 2016 collecion and it’s just what you’d expect but more. Fun, whimsical and with inspiration from under the sea. Check out this adorable octopus onesie for example! And this jelly fish onesie isn’t what it looks like. The front is a real winner! I love it when fashion designers think out of the box and come up with designs that are both different and unlike the norm. Stella McCartney does it every, single time. Check out her site for the entire collection – […] Continue reading →
