Say Goodbye to Baby Brain and Hello to Organization

Weekly Pregnancy Planner by VSHOP

This pregnancy I have had some serious baby brain. Before being pregnant with Sophie and experiencing pregnancy first hand I honestly thought that pregnant mamas, new mamas, and just mamas in general were making the whole baby brain thing up. For those that don’t know….. It is FOR REAL! There is no avoiding it, one day you realize you no longer have a short term memory and you literally have to write every. little. detail. down in order to remember it.

To make myself and how bad my baby brain is even more clear… not that long ago I shared on Instagram that I was 35 weeks pregnant, after going onto my app later that night I realized that I was actually only 33 weeks pregnant (I had checked the app a few hours before making the post and still made the error). I am sure that the lack of sleep also contributes to the lack of memory too.

Anyways, what I am getting at is, what if you had something that could aid you with this baby brain situation and help you be much more organized on the daily/weekly schedule and appointments? That would be pretty great right! Especially for first time mamas who might not be expecting the baby brain to kick in, this might make the perfect gift for them.

My friend and fellow designer, Victoria Senges of VSHOP, showed me a new product that she was launching and I just had to try it out and share it with all of you. This weekly “We Got This, Baby!” planner is customizable for every woman and their pregnancy with the ability to fill in the dates and tear off each page at the end of the week.

You can also keep the pages as a memento for after baby arrives as it allows you to record your mood, current cravings and other fun facts about how momma is feeling each week. On the right hand side you can detach “Questions for the Doctor” and “Things to buy for Baby” for when you head out of the house for your appointment or shopping date.

Since this product is new to the VSHOP and I am nearing the end of my pregnancy I have only been able to use it for a short while, but I knew right when seeing it that it would be something that I would want my hands on from the start of pregnancy. I think it could be the perfect little gift to yourself when finding out your are pregnant or something that would make an amazing gift for a bestie after they share their exciting news with you.

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
