Leading Moms: Where Passion and Motherhood Come Together

Events & Travel
2

As mothers we are each so unique, yet we all strive for the same things, confident in our life choices and being loving mothers. With our goals and passions in life aligned we can join together and learn from each other, talking about where we started and the journey we are on to get to where we want to be. Some may be at the beginning of their journey, still in discovery of who we are, while others have found their passions and are living their dreams and being a confident mother all at the same time. This is what I love about Vancouver’s Leading Moms events, connectivity.

It is important to learn from those ahead of us, those that have paved their path and can share knowledge on how they got there. On September 23, 2016 I am so excited to have the opportunity to connect, listen and learn from strong inspiring mothers during the Leading Moms event at the Vancity Theatre in downtown Vancouver.

Last year I had the opportunity to attend my first Leading Moms event and I was left encouraged, motivated and inspired. This event presented by Crisp Media (producer of Vancouvermom.ca) is something I have been looking forward to this year, take a peak at last year’s video as it recaps highlights and gives you the best idea of what Leading Mom’s is all about.

This year for the fifth annual Leading Moms event the theme is based around childhood and we will be hearing from some of the most talented and accomplished women in Vancouver, including:

  1. Miyoung Lee: Host and Producer at CBC News Vancouver
    “Multiple Webster nominee and RTNDA winner, Miyoung Lee rings in her fourteenth year with CBC as the host and producer of CBC Vancouver News at 11 p.m.” … continued.
  2. Tara Teng: TV Host, Miss World Canada 2012 and Human Rights Activist
    “Tara Teng is a TV host, Miss World Canada 2012, a human rights activist, and works with various organizations around the world to combat gender-based violence and human trafficking.” … continued
  3. Dr. Vanessa Lapointe: Registered Psychologist & Bestselling Author
    “A Huffington Post parenting blogger, author of the best-selling book Discipline without Damage: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up, founder of The Wishing Star Developmental Clinic, and a regularly invited media guest, contributor, and speaker, Dr. Vanessa is known for bringing a sense of nurturing understanding to all of her work.” …continued
  4. Erin Treloar: Founder, RAW Beauty Talks
    “Erin has interviewed over 200 women from across North America including Olympic gold-medalist, Jamie Anderson and Grammy award-winning artist, Colbie Caillat for RAW Beauty Talks, a special series that features women without make-up, Photoshop or filters.” … continued

plus a handful of other great speakers, all sharing their experiences and personal journeys through performance, video and intimate talks delivered straight from their hearts.

  • A quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • On our way to drop this guy off at the airport again. We had five glorious days with him at home and now it's back to single momming it. #deepbreath
  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀

I’m super thankful for brands that strive to make our kids more comfortable and our job as parents easier.⠀

I’m a #GoodNites_Partner and working with them to teach parents about bed wetting, what causes it, solutions and to encourage all parents to know that these stages in childhood are normal.⠀

I’ll be sharing more about my experience in a video later this month, stay tuned!⠀
