You are the Bubbles To My Bath

I will never forget Harper and Noa’s very first bath at the hospital. Did you know that 80% of babies born in Canada have their first bath with JOHNSON’S® and this hasn’t changed for many years. But what has changed is that JOHNSON’S has reformulated their products, inside and out, to set a new standard for gentle.

Now their products have simpler formulas with fewer, more natural ingredients. Today I’m proud to say I am an official ambassador for JOHNSON’S! Head to the blog because I share more about how JOHNSON’S has raised the bar when it comes to what is best for my baby and yours.

My Journey From Bump to Baby

As many of you have read in my posts, my journey to baby #2 was not an easy one.

This campaign is intended to share women’s unique pregnancy journeys to help provide support to other women and families to know they’re not alone.

Sweat. Nurse. Repeat.

I’m slowly getting back to more regular activity since having my second baby and I have to admit, finding workout clothing for the nursing mother was not an easy task. As you might already know, it takes major skills to try and breastfeed in a regular sports bra after a Mommy & Baby fitness class. I was not up for that challenge. But I think the universe must’ve been listening because that’s when I was introduced to @Cadenshae. It’s the first active wear line made specifically for moms (by a mom) that’s not only functional, but fashionable too. I’ve shared the full low-down on the blog! If you’re a nursing active mama, you HAVE to check out this line. I’m officially obsessed!

Don’t Let Anyone Rain On Your Parade

For the second year in a row, I’ve partnered with Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) on their “Excuses Campaign”.

6-Weeks Postpartum. Now What?

This is me 6 weeks postpartum. My body is softer and my skin is looser; sure, I'm excited to get back to my fitness routine, but I just made a beautiful little human which took 39 weeks to bake, so I'm in no rush whatsoever.
