We are in Cancun, Mexico


Oh my goodness, I can’t even believe it! Two weeks ago a DM came through my Instagram asking if we were interested in coming to Mexico at the beginning of April. I think my eyes almost jumped right out of my head. How amazing would that be, I thought, a family vacation to Cancun, Mexico. With some pretty pleases from James to get time off work and some rearranging of my work schedule we made it work!

Holiday Family Photos

Let’s rewind a bit. At the end of last year I was reflecting on some of my highlights from the year. I was so blessed with a few one year partnerships in 2018, IRIS was one of those amazing and perfect partners. I wrote out some goals for the year, including working with IRIS again, and some long term blog goals, including collaborating with an all inclusive resort. Dream right!

Making goals is so important to me as it allows me to make decisions for our family and my brand while having a look at where I want to see myself going. I’ve been doing this with both business and lifestyle, which has allowed me to focus on a much healthier life choices.

The first few days of all inclusive living we are going to be creating content for Club Med in Cancun, Mexico and then the last few days will be all about relaxing. Roam Travel PR will be capturing our family as we go about the resort and experience everything (literally everything) they have to offer. More blog posts to come on that I am sure!

We’ve packed our bags with lots of neutral colours, had plenty of visits to the store to make sure we have all the essentials, new swimwear for the kids growing bodies and even picked up some new sunglasses from IRIS to make sure that we were all protected from the sun.

I brought in my old pair last week as one of the kids had stepped on them. The frames were bent out of shape and with IRIS’s “No Matter What” guarantee they fixed them within minutes so they were as good as new. I couldn’t resist trying on a few new styles and checking out all the Maui Jim’s they have in stock. I’ll be sharing my favourite sunglass trends for 2019 soon too!

Well, here we are, lounging in Mexico. Taking in the sun rays, hardly believing that I checked off both a one year goal and a five year goal within the first quarter of the year for this blog and wanting to remind you all to dream big. Write out your goals, work smarter not harder and continue to listen to your body to rest when needed. I’m working on that last bit, Mexico is helping.




  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠
Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
  • It’s Friday night and I’m sharing photos on my stories of how @juliechristinephotography captured my butt in these pants. Could be worse I guess 🤣🤣 PS the jeans are the curvy mom jeans from @americaneagle // @shopsevenoaks and I really do love them, except for when my butt gets hungry for them. The end.
