Van City Business Babes #mompreneurpanel Event

A few weeks ago I got to sit down with the super talented and driven lady behind Van City Business Babes. Danielle is such a pleasure to talk to. When Danielle mentioned that she was planning a Mompreneur Panel night I was so drawn into her vision and wanted to take part to help her make the event a success.

Yesterday I was able to attend Danielle’s successful event, and today I am so thrilled to share some photos I captured. Thank you to all the vendors, sponsors, and of course Danielle for planning such a stunning event at Sky Helicopters. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a relaxing afternoon chatting with so many like-minded, creative and talented woman.

Strawberry Picking at Maan Farms

Strawberry picking at Abbotsford Maan Farms

The other day my sister, myself and our babes got together and decided to go strawberry picking for the first time.

As a kid my mom would take me and my sisters berry picking all the time, but it was usually raspberries and blueberries that we picked. I was excited to try out strawberry picking for the first time, and I have some tips for any of you other first timers out there to ensure you have the best experience. Continue reading

I wanted to share these items with you as some of them are from my favourite local shops, and the others are products that I have purchased and are frequently used everyday items.

Natural Bath Time Products

Each month I connect with one of my favourite shops and then get to share their story with you. This month I had the pleasure of featuring Twine Abode in the ‘Shop Spotlight’.

I have very much enjoyed featuring Twine Abode and can not resist sharing more of their products with you. Twine Abode makes the loveliest all natural products for your home as well as cleansing products for yourself and your kids.
