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 →

All of our Christmas shopping for the kids was completed on my laptop on Black Friday and the darn elf has been missing in action for weeks. You know how everyone writes these popular posts on what to do with your elf? I could easily put together a list of excuses in case you hide it so well you […] Continue reading →

Everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant. I’ve joked that there must be something in the water, but my generation seems to be settling down now, starting their families and building a nest. The photos on Facebook and countless baby bumps, combined with my eldest daughter’s 9th birthday yesterday (whaaaat?!) have had me thinking back to my own pregnancies. My first pregnancy was honestly the most special. I was becoming a mother for the first time, everything was new and unknown. Scary yet terribly exciting. When we found out I was pregnant, my husband and I broke into happy […] Continue reading →
