Van City Business Babes #mompreneurpanel Event

Events & Travel

A few weeks ago I got to sit down with the super talented and driven lady behind Van City Business Babes. Danielle is such a pleasure to talk to. When Danielle mentioned that she was planning a Mompreneur Panel night I was so drawn into her vision and wanted to take part to help her make the event a success.

Yesterday I was able to attend Danielle’s successful event, and today I am so thrilled to share some photos I captured. Thank you to all the vendors, sponsors, and of course Danielle for planning such a stunning event at Sky Helicopters. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a relaxing afternoon chatting with so many like-minded, creative and talented woman.

Ellebox is a “premium monthly subscription service which bundles your choice of tampons and pads with hand curated comfort and wellness goods to make that time of the month a little more pleasant.” This is such a fabulous idea, and these ladies had such a beautiful table display.

We had the pleasure of hearing from three remarkable woman and mothers; Jamie Khau from Styling the Inside, Jessica Birak from Mint and Birch and Kristal Barrett from The Sparkle Project. These ladies answered some questions provided by host, Danielle, about their life adventures in business as mompreneurs. I was super inspired by their genuine personalities and truthful answers. One of my favourite quotes from the day was spoken by Jessica, “Be gentle on yourself, what success looks like to you may be totally different then what success looks like to sombody else.”

  • How she’s been asking me to tuck her in, with both babies by her head.
  • Guesssss what! @roxannredekop and I were chatting and we are going to be putting some video hair tutorials together. She’ll be helping me style mine and Sophie’s hair for our matching mom and mini photos and then she’ll teach you how to do it. I loved all your feedback on our first matching mom and mini hair post and I can’t wait to bring even more!
  • Trying to capture some product shots of the @sodastreamcanada FIZZI and this girl has other ideas. She's been getting involved so much with the behind the scenes (and in front of... swipe left) for the blog and it's so fun to see her loving it as much as I do. We introduced the SodaStream FIZZI into our home recently and have been enjoying turning our tap water into sparkling water in a matter of seconds. Curious about how it works? Sophie is giving a mini tutorial in my stories, I think I have a little YouTuber in the making.
I'm so excited to join the @SodaStreamCanada Stream Team this year and to start changing the world through bubbles. Up next, we are working on fun recipes and would love to share all your favorite flavoured water combos. C O M M E N T below what you like to mix into your water and I'll be putting together a blog post, linking your favorite mix back to your Instagram.

  • When I’m asked about what I have enjoyed the most about starting a blog, hands down the answer is all the incredible women I have met. I could go on and on about how freaking amazing this community is and how much each and everyone of you mean to me for being here. Sending some GIRL POWER into the universe today because today we are celebrating women, what we’ve accomplished in the past and what we will be accomplish in the future.
  • When you can’t decide between a french braid and a fishtail you do a little of both.
Thinking a little series of #momandminihair is in order. What do you think?
