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.

Review: Hamilton Beach 7 Q Programmable Slow Cooker

One of the first appliances I had when I moved into my own apartment was a crock pot my Nanny gave me. What a useful machine! I make spaghetti sauce, gluten-free meat balls, crock pot yogurt and of course, perpetual bone broth. I used it in university from time to time, but I really started […]

Manduka eKO Lite Mat Up for grabs

Manduka eKO Lite Mat Up for grabs

I have about 10 yoga mats. Some were given to me, others I bought for 5$ a pop when a local yoga studio cleared out mats people had long forgotten. I use them for my summertime outdoor yoga classes so the quality really isn’t very important. Up until very recently, I’d just grab one of […]

Luckily, a few years into my teenagehood I came to my senses and started using a reusable menstrual cup. And here I […]

Giveaway! The Secret Mountain: 4 Books in review

Four-year-old Babe is a lover of the arts. While she seems to detest jazz these days (Papa is a jazz musician and we think she might be rebelling), she just adores classical music (calls it ballet music) and of course, she loves books. So Sleep Softly:¬†Classical Lullabies by Brahms, Schubert, Satie, Debussy, was not a […]

Raw Kale Salad

Raw Kale Salad

This recipe came together when there was still snow on the ground and we were desperate for summer. I bought loads of kale and asked friends on Facebook what they’d use it for. One woman, Rowan, suggested kale, parsley and cabbage salad. So thus is what I came up with. I’d have added lemon juice […]
