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.

Outdoor Picnic with TeepeeTot + Coupon Code

Tee pee Tot Picnic with Coral and Cloud and Fancy Frogz

When I browse online for decorative inspiration, I notice I am attracted to a common theme within children’s spaces. In this space there is usually an area of shelter or personal space that the child can call their own. Unfortunately, these spaces are often not practical or affordable to do in my own home. When I came across TeepeeTot I knew that Jiao’s creations would be a perfect fit for any area in our home and something my children would enjoy. Continue reading

We Love Handmade! Small Business Photoshoot Collaboration

I feel like I start every blog post with I am so excited, but honestly… I am so excited to share these with you. I have been working with some pretty awesome ladies/mommas recently for the opportunity to share some of their amazing products with you. I got to get together with my sister, plan a little picnic photoshoot with our kids and then photograph the results.

We set up the Teepee Tot tee pee for the first time and introduced them to some new hand crocheted teddies, by Softly Made, and it was so great to see them interact. Sophie has always been a wild one, exploring, yelling and flailing where Milo is a little more reserved, cautious yet curious. Their personalities seemed to evident within the photographs to me. They are also wearing some favourite clothing articles from Modern Moses Clothing and Little & Lively.

Small Business: Simply Mel and Co.

I am constantly reminded about what a small world it is every time I make a new connection with someone and I realize that our paths had previously passed without even realizing it.  Melissa, from Simply Mel and Co., and I used to work across the street from each other, both working at different businesses owned by our mothers.  It wasn’t until recently, when Melissa contacted me through my blog that we realized we recognized each other.  I am so thrilled to have the pleasure to make this connection with Melissa and have the opportunity to learn more and share all about Melissa and Simply Mel and Co. with you.

Small Business: Coral + Cloud

Geometric shapes, vibrant colours, beautifully handmade, and oh so unique; are all ways that would perfectly describe Coral + Cloud’s original necklace and mobile line.  Each wooden bead is hand-painted with high quality eco friendly paint to provide you with exceptional products.  When I first received my necklace in the mail I put it on right away, I loved how the wooden geometric shaped beads, coloured in peach, pink and gold, looked displayed around my neck.  My new statement piece necklace by Coral + Cloud had definitely taken the lead in favourite necklace.  The very next day I wore my necklace to work and I received a large number of compliments from customers, I was so thrilled to share with them about this small business I had recently come to know.  I was just as excited then as I now, being able to share with you all about Coral + Cloud and the remarkable woman behind the business is such a pleasure.
