You all know how much I adore Lululemon. I have a bit of an addition to the brand. Recently, one of the previous designers, Chuck Beatty, debuted Twiga, a new line for girls. Customizable yoga pants anyone? Twiga makes customizable and personalized active wear and accessories for girls and women of all ages and sizes. The Twiga collection includes leggings, shorts, yoga pants, crops and headbands for both mom and daughter – all made from the highest quality materials here in Canada. All of the products are made BY HAND, one at a time by Chuck Beatty and his team. […] Continue reading →

There are certain things we remember about our childhood. Little things  like the crunch of fall leaves under our feet, the smell of the earth as we dug into it with our cubby hands, getting the grittiness underneath our fingernails. I don’t remember much about what I wore, as much as how the garments felt. The silkiness of the Indian saris that I used to run my hands over, or even the thick denim overalls I wore. I’ll always remember those overalls. The metal hooks that clipped onto those little round brass buttons. I loved the sound of that “clink.” I […] Continue reading →

Fitness is not a chore, nor is it something that I dread. It’s become a way of life, something that I do daily to keep my mind, body and soul in tip top shape. There’s a saying that goes something like this “Your children don’t listen to what you say, they listen to what you do.” My girls have been watching me closely as I dance, run and practice yoga. Naturally they want to be just like me, from the activities I do right down to the clothes I wear. It’s hard to find affordable activewear, which is why I’m […] Continue reading →

ROAR 2014

As I type this from my hotel room, 30 women from across North America are boarding planes to Costa Rica in order to attend the first inaugural ROAR Retreat, “a social media retreat for professional bloggers and women who also have a major wanderlust and aren’t afraid of adventure.” Last year during the ABC Expo in Las Vegas, an exposition that I have been attending for the past four years, I was walking the floors with my friend and colleague Andrea Fellman from Savvy Sassy Moms and threw this idea that had been on my mind for quite some time and […] Continue reading →

Healing Mix

I’m a little bit of a health fanatic. Nothing goes in my grocery cart unless the ingredient list has been scanned and then double checked yet again. Unless it’s a whole food, chances are it won’t be coming into my home.   Last month, I took part in a Twitter party for Healing Mix, a product that is designed for new moms postpartum, but can really be used by anyone. After reading the ingredient list (more on that in a second) I was immediately on board! I can also understand the healing concept behind this as I felt very weak after […] Continue reading →
