The local Boutique every Mom to be NEEDS to know about.

Would you believe me if I told you this oufit was maternity? Shocked? Me too! (totally obsessed with this black ribbed skirt!)  I vividly recall thinking “what the heck am I going to wear and still look decent” about 1000x during my first pregnancy, over 7 years ago. At that time, there weren’t a lot of bloggers that, while excited to be a mom, still wanted to stay fashionable! Thankfully, times have changed! Even though…

LOVE- LY Instant Pot Beef Ragu and Pappardelle

For the last several months we’ve been celebrating occasions with friends and family via zoom, and while, not ideal- it can still be a lot of fun! We’ve even had multiple dinner parties where each person (or couple) comes up with a recipe and ‘teaches’ the others how to make it! We get that not everyone LOVES Valentines Day, but think of it as an opportunity to show those you love how much they mean…

Local Charcuterie

Have you been to Freson Bros. before? From the moment you walk in, until the second you leave, you can’t help but enjoy the experience! The aisles are spotless, the produce impeccable, the selection impressive and the staff always helpful and smiling (okay, smizing… its 2020!). The whole Freson shopping experience is wonderful, start to finish! It’s hard to say what we love most about this store. As passionate Albertans, it’s amazing to see a…

And the habit that has helped my family and I the most during these challenging times has undoubtedly been spending time in the great outdoors. Getting fresh air daily has been a game changer for both our physical health and our state of mind. We’ve been biking, walking,…

Winter Running Guide

Ask and you shall receive! When we announced our partnership with Running Room back in September the response was ASTOUNDING! It was amazing to hear that so many of you had gotten into the sport over the past several months. Even more amazing was learning that the majority of people hope to continue their outdoor running into the Winter (which, sort of already arrived and left and now is bound to show up again soon!).…

Carbon Monoxide Safety

While most of us have heard of carbon monoxide (CO) and know it’s dangerous, that’s pretty much as far as it goes.

With winter closing in and heating season in full swing now’s the time to make sure your home is protected against CO.We are thrilled to have partnered…

Kids Footwear + Fashion- Fall Edition!

A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to pop in to Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, a local Kids boutique. HSKT (for short!) has been around in Edmonton for 11 years! It started with 3 sisters who had a passion for moms and kids. They began with only one bay and expanded to the current 3 bays (3,000sqft) about 4 years ago. When the previous owners decided to move into retirement, local mama Lindsay…

Get Running!

Raise your hand if you love to Run!! I realize Running may not be everyone’s favorite past time.. but it can be! Hear me out. There have been times in my life when I’ve run every single day. There have been times when I haven’t run in YEARS. Times when I’ve literally forced myself to lace up my shoes, times when I’ve pushed 35+ lbs (my kids) in the jogger after a long recovery from…
