Leading Moms: Where Passion and Motherhood Come Together

SMALL BUSINESS FEATURE
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.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
