From #girlboss mode, to the hockey rink, to meetings, to leading workshops, to being an over-qualified professional chauffeur to my 3 kids - my life is scattered. By definition, to be scattered means that one is distracted, disorganized and maybe a little unfocused....

Confessions of an Organized Mom

Spring style and trends are starting to sweep across the nation and I for one have filled up more online carts than I care to admit. Its natural at this time of year or during any season change (in this case it is more like we want it to change as I stare outside my...

Mornings Made Easy

New Year, Same Me

It's been awhile, that I know. I took a break. Well, at least a break from your perspective. Behind the scenes? behind the scenes I have been running on all cylinders, planting seeds and creating space. It had nothing to do with feeling tired or burnt out or lazy but...

Why Resolutions Don’t Work

Well, in my humble opinion anyway. I've never been one to make resolutions, and based on the fact that only 7% of those who do make resolutions actually stick with them beyond January is probably a good indication that I'm on the right track. I'm going to try my best...

On Saturdays one of my favourite things to do is actually enjoy the coffee I'm drinking. Like, all.day.long. In fact, I think I could survive on coffee alone.....hmmm and maybe some timbits. Anyone else's kids not like timbits but you keep ordering them in the drive thru pretending that the box is for them as they scream in the background "we don't like timbits". No? just me - ok then. ... See MoreSee Less

I may or may not know the entire lineup for this event......including the host 😉 Any guesses?

Um, and for the record when I did find out who the guest speakers are I responded with things like "WHAT?" and "OMG" and "AH-MAZING". Seriously, mark your calendars - you might want to spend the entire weekend.

Who grew up having Fish & Chips on Fridays? Suddenly have a
craving? I know, me too. So for all of you Fish & Chip lovers out
there that could do with a little more Friday nostalgia and a lot less grease I’ve got good news for you. With a focus on high-quality fish products that are simple and convenient to prepare (#momwin), Findus has just launched in Canada, inspiring families like mine to eat more fish in a super simple and convenient way.
.
In short, my Fridays (and maybe Saturday - Thursday) just got a lot easier and a lot more delicious with Findus English style battered fish. The other good news? Findus products are MSC certified which means that can trust their seafood was caught by a responsible fishery in a sustainable way - to preserve the population and biodiversity of our oceans. Pick up yours today at participating Sobey’s and Metro
locations.

Don’t let this image fool you. I had a strangle hold on these balloons as they were blowing around in the wind. It was also about -25778 degrees out and all of the parents in my neighbourhood were out picking their kids up from the bus. Oh, and my husband arrived home early from work to find me standing in the middle of our street holding a random bouquet of balloons (as he shook his head laughing).

Now, one might assume that everyone staring was because of the ridiculous scene @flash.adams and I were creating but I’m just going to assume it was because of my amazing @garderobe.toronto tulle skirt and @ninewestcanada shoes 😉

Want a chance to win your very own @garderobe.toronto tulle skirt and a $250 @ninewestcanada gift card so that you too can stop traffic (ah hm, buses) and turn heads too? Head on over and enter my contest to win!
