The past couple of months have been a whirlwind to put it mildly. I feel as if life has been on fast forward. Each and every day filled with a schedule that begins at 7 am and doesn’t end until midnight. 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 →

They’re here! We recently featured My Inner Fire on Child Mode and their fall winter collection is now available and oh so gorgeous! I’m currently crushing on the white and light purple leggings with the feathers. I have a thing for feathers and white leggings…   The colours are jewel-toned and oh so gorgeous. I’m loving the unique designs that Inner Fire has implemented here. The deer design on the teal leggings, subtle florals on the purple and the tribal on the pink and purple pants. These come in cropped versions as well if you prefer capris.  In case you […] Continue reading →

My Inner Fire

I’m a little bit of a yoga pant aficionado. I don’t even want to admit how many pairs I have. Capris, shorts, yoga leggings – I’m obsessed with them all! Last year I came across a new (to me) company based in Canada, that finds inspiration for their designs from nature and the beauty that surrounds us. The leggings are designed and manufactured in Vancouver, BC and are made from 88% recycled polyester and 12% spandex. The material is treated with anti-microbial Chitosante treatment which means less stink! Specialized printing process means no inks are wasted in the process and […] Continue reading →

Between visits with friends and trips to the store, beach and back again, hand sanitizer is a must for our family when traveling locally or out of town. It’s incredible how quickly germs spread and if my kids aren’t using a form of sanitizer or soap, they’re bound to all get sick in some way or another.  I can’t afford to get sick. As a yoga teacher, writer and business owner I truly can’t afford to get any sort of bug, which is why I carry these little bottles of PURELL around in my car, purse and glove box. The larger […] Continue reading →
