Let’s Rock n’ Stroll

I never knew that strollers had evolved so much over the years. I have always used and loved our existing stroller brand with both Harper and Noa, but since partnering with Babies’R’Us Canada, I was given an opportunity to venture out and see what else was out on the market. Plus, it’s important for me (and all of us mamas) to stay up to date with what’s new and exciting in the stroller world because so much is changing all the time. From size and weight to prints and patterns, the stroller game is no joke!

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. WhenFirst Response asked to interview me to dig deeper into my story, as part of the “This is My Journey” campaign with Today’s Parent, I knew it would bring out a lot of emotions. 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.

Exercise Your Baby’s Brain Muscles!

When I had my second baby, this passion to bond through music continued. This time I was introduced to an amazing new musical app called Smart Start.

For the second year in a row, I’ve partnered with Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) on their “Excuses Campaign”. Like most women, I have a soft spot for shoes and it is just hard to say no to a good pair! Truth: I can always find an excuse to get shoes. But this time around, Harper and I set aside the running shoes and trainers and we’re focusing on rain boots instead!
