I created this DIY for my submission to I Like Her Style Vancouver and absolutely LOVE it! Was so thrilled to see it accepted and published in their magazine and can’t get over how amazing it looks from just a few simple supplies.

Julie came over with not one but THREE treat bags, some with candies and other with chocolate pretzels and cookies. Each of the bags are a little different but all so cute, she has them sorted from easy, easier to easiest in her blog post. Which would you do?

These cute little things were one of the treats that Julie made. They would work great inside a little treat bag like she did above or on their own how we styled them on our candy charcuterie spread.

4. Hanging Heart Wreath

This craft would be so perfect to do with kids. Keisha shares how she created this heart wreath on her blog and within another Valentine’s Day inspired party (It’s featured on BC Living here!) We used the wreath in our decor resting on the shelf, thought if you created a few it would look super cute as a backdrop hanging off the wall too.

5. Chocolate Covered Popcorn & Sprinkles

The hardest part is melting the chocolate, the rest is pure enjoyment. You have to make sure when melting chocolate you get it just right, not to hot or it will get hard again and won’t be easy to work with or taste as good. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the spread out popcorn and then top with sprinkles to add a pop of colour. Simple and delicious!

6. Blush Pink Heart Free Printable

Another previous year’s Valentine’s creation is this simple free printable heart. Created in my favorite colour you can print and frame for literally instant home decor, be it Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year.

One of my Instagram partnerships is with SodaStream and I put together this Italian Soda Recipe to share there. It turns out to be such a pretty shade of pink, tastes like a milkshake and satisfies all the sweet and creamy cravings all in one.

8. Valentine’s X & O Banner

This post was a guest post a few years back from some girls that I connected with on Instagram. It’s still one of my favorites as it’s super simple to make and such a pretty look when it’s finished. See photos by clicking the link below.

Two years ago Keisha planned a Valentine’s Day party with a handful of other local bloggers. I created some heart shaped chocolate covered strawberries and skewered them to make arrow hearts. For this little party we kept it simple and changed the recipe, using coconut oil instead of marshmallows. The main differences are the taste and the chocolate and oil combo melts a lot quicker.

10. Vegan Heart Sugar Cookies

I may or may not have snagged these from my friend The Cake Mama a few days before this party. hehe! She was speaking at a Vancity Business Babes event I attended, had the most amazing sweets tables and at the end of it all somehow still had some left over. So, when you can’t do it yourself, confide in a friend or local business to create the perfect treat for you.

Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.
.
How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!

There are even more DIY ideas at the link in my profile thanks
to Canon and their PIXMA Printers. #Sponsored

Thanks for ALL the recommendations for everything to do in Gibson’s and the surrounding area. There are SO MANY awesome locally owned shops we want to discover still. Today started with a 🛥 tour by @sunshinekayaking as we explored along @sunshinecoastbc and the surrounding islands, we grabbed ☕️ at @beachcombercoffee and 🍦 at @mikesplace2003 along with food at @black.bean.cafe #yum !

Explored a little along the 🏖 and then discovered everything within @gibsonspublicmarket — leaving with some 🧀 🥖 🍎 for afternoon snacks. See everything in my stories including some sea creatures from @nsmec 🦐 🐟 🦀 sooo cool!! A quick 🚎 ride home with @bc_transit for a rest before the kids start begging to go for a 🏊‍♂️ 🏊‍♀️... it’s definitely tiring travelling around all day with three kiddos but my mamas some sort of superhero and their eagerness to learn and love for exploring makes it 💫🙌🏻🥰

One more day to #exploreBCbybus — excited to see what’s to come.
  • I’m surprised you can’t see the wrinkles on our bodies from the camera after our three hour swim this afternoon. 
We got up at 630AM to make sure we had enough time to finish packing 🤦🏼‍♀️ and drive out to catch our @bcferries — after a quick ⛴ ride over we all hopped on the @bc_transit city 🚎 into Gibson’s and then further into Sechelt ... where we became water prunes. 🏊 
I’ve been asked to share an article for @bc_transit on our experience as we #exploreBCbybus 🚎 — the next few days I’ll be sharing on my Stories some of the places we explore too! I’d love to hear your recommendations on places to eat, thanks to a lovely follower for suggesting dinner at 🍔 @pklsburgers, we are pleasantly stuffed.

Where should we go next?? 🌊 ☀️ We’ll be around Gibson’s and Sechelt the next two days.

Also, just gotta add... my mom makes a pretty great #InstagramGrammy 🙌🏻🥰🤣
  • You don’t need to birth a child to be a mama. I don’t talk about being a step-mama very often, mostly because overall it doesn’t feel any different then being a mama to the kiddos I birthed. Everyone’s journey to motherhood looks and feels different, some may seem easier but each unique with their own challenges. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey today, I want to say that you are loved, you are appreciated and you are exactly what the child you are mothering needs.
