Giveaway! B Factory eco-friendly beeswax wraps

There’s been a bit of a buzz about this new eco-friendly way to wrap things up. Something that’s like cling wrap, but not the least bit wasteful. And to be honest, I thought it was a little too good to be true. But when Margaux, owner of Montreal’s B Factory sent me some of her […]

Maman Kangourou Europea Review and Giveaway

Maman Kangourou Europea Review and Giveaway

Guest review by Marie-Eve Perron Like so many others, I was introduce to babywearing with the Maman Kangourou stretchy wrap. My daughter was two or three weeks old when I finally decided to unfold that (too) long and intimidating piece of fabric. And that’s when our love story with babywearing started. Twenty months later and […]

Mama Cloth: a review

Mama Cloth: a review

My 13-year-old self would SO NOT have been okay with the idea of using reusable cloth menstrual pads. Periods are gross and we need to use bleached, disposable products to be clean. Right? Luckily, a few years into my teenagehood I came to my senses and started using a reusable menstrual cup. And here I […]

Miel Sisters review and giveaway

Miel Sisters review and giveaway

I’ve been either pregnant or nursing (or both!) for more than four years. My body has gone through many changes. I do not have many stretch marks but my belly button is a little saggy. I’m thinner than I was before I became a mom, though my hips have widened. What size of bra and […]

AppleCheeks Delishmas Giveaway!

A year and a half ago, I was a bit of a mess. I was at the height of my PPD/anxiety. I was scared to leave the house with my two kids. I didn’t drive (I had my license but was terrified to get behind the wheel). I was dependent on a lot of people. […]
