Styling the Bump: 6 Outfit Ideas

July 7, 2020
Maternity style second trimester

I feel like I blinked and all of a sudden…I’m 6 months pregnant?! When did that happen? I don’t really understand how the months translate into weeks (being pregnant now I finally understand why pregnant women always say how far along they are in weeks and days vs months as it doesn’t really make sense otherwise) but according to What to Expect When You’re Expecting, here I am, all of a sudden 6 months pregnant! I’m feeling great for the…

The Top B.C. Travel Destinations For The Summer

June 25, 2020

We’ve been really, really lucky here in British Columbia with our COVID-19 numbers so far (knock on wood), and that as a result of that we’re slowly stepping into Phase 3 of our province’s reopening plan. I have really missed my cabin in particular (on the Sunshine Coast) so that’s where I’m likely going to spend most of my summer! I’ve honestly missed it so much. In a weird way, being pregnant has made me so cautious that I also…

Pregnancy + Body Confidence

June 16, 2020

I generally don’t feel too uncomfortable writing most of my posts even when they’re a bit more personal but this topic is, well…uncomfortable for me to write about. And very embarrassing, honestly. But at the same time, I think it’s pretty dumb that there is an expectation (internally or externally) to not have any struggles with seeing your body change during pregnancy, and to consequently feel immediate guilt if you do struggle at all. I want to be honest that…

I mentioned this on my stories recently, but the last little while has had a really tremendous impact on me. I felt previously like I was on the right side of the fight—that I…

What I Eat In a Day

May 27, 2020
body love green smoothie by To Vogue or Bust

Staying healthy during COVID-19 is no joke, what with gyms closing, feeling more confined to your home, trying to eat up whatever’s in your pantry and reducing grocery store visits, etc. I feel like when I was saying I had “adjusted to my new normal” a couple months ago, I was really just trying to convince myself because really, I hadn’t adjusted at all and was still kind of resisting what our situation was. I feel like since then I’ve…

Our Gender Reveal

May 25, 2020

It’s a…. …BOY!!!  Gaaaah still so crazy to say it out loud!! Anyway, we had the most incredible physically distanced gender reveal party in my parents’ backyard a few weekends ago, a couple weeks after we’d gotten the results of our Harmony test back (an NIPT test that checks for chromosomal abnormalities, which also lets you find out gender early!). To be totally honest, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to do a gender reveal party at first…while celebrating with…
