When the news first broke out during the Chinese Lunar New Year that there was an extremely infectious virus called Corona or Covid-19 spreading around, I wasn’t expecting this to become a global pandemic that called for a world lock-down! What I realized during this quarantine (among many other things) is how lucky we are to live in Vancouver and blessed that we are surrounded by so much beautiful nature. But what I also didn’t expect was how much I love my backyard which I have never really appreciated until now. To be honest, I was never a backyard person because I like to go out and explore but because of this quarantine, I have been to my backyard pretty much every single day and have been drawing every bit of creativity I have to bring some fun into our lives and having a picnic in the back was one of them. So I partnered up with a few BC Wineries to bring my dream of picnicking and wine tasting in my backyard to life!

To be honest, I have never thought about owning an Electric Vehicle before until I test drove the All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE last summer! I actually first heard about the Jaguar I-PACE through my husband who was thinking about switching to an electric car later this year. Coincidentally, I was invited to check out ElectraFest where I get to test out some electric vehicles and the I-PACE was on the list so I jumped eagerly at the chance. We met up with Jarvin Ong who was the I-PACE expert and we got to test drive the car around Yaletown and absolutely loved it! And fast forward to now, we got the chance again to revisit and really get to know the I-PACE more in-depth for about two weeks and I have to say it’s hard to let this car go! So today, I want to share with you my initial impression of the car, why it’s the perfect everyday family car and also why you should switch to an electric vehicle now!

One of the most important baby products you will need to discover before or after the baby arrives is a good feeding system. I think almost every baby in their lifetime will experience a bottle or two, so finding a suitable bottle is one of the most important tasks for new parents. So today, I want to introduce another fantastic bottle by Philips Avent, the Natural baby bottle. This special range of bottles is made to easily combine bottle feeding with you breast-feeding mama’s out there; so come discover with me on why the Natural is the perfect bottle for your baby.

The winter season calls for warm fuzzy slippers, hot chocolate by the fire and cozy winter getaways! What also comes with the winter season is unwanted dry skin, and we should definitely not let that get in the way during this festive time of year. Recently, we went on a wonderful family trip to beautiful Harrison Hot Springs and stayed at a gorgeous lodge by the lake. This dreamy lodge had the most spectacular view of Harrison Lake and we had the best time exploring Sasquatch country. However, it was also extremely cold and very windy, which means that it can really affect not only mine but my baby’s delicate skin. Luckily Adelina’s skin was fine because I never ever travel without my AVEENO® Baby® Eczema Care Line -so there was no dry, irritated or itchy skin for my baby this winter season thanks to AVEENO® Baby®!
Nothing says winter like a cozy getaway! So during the beginning of December my family and I had the pleasure of visiting Harrison Hot Springs, just a 90 minute car ride from Vancouver. Nestled against Southwestern B.C’s magnificent mountains and sandy beaches, Harrison is known for their famous hot springs! However today, I want to showcase Harrison in a different light- one that not only offers natural wonders but also a travel destination full of things to explore like their great outdoors, their friendly locals and the rich history of the Sasquatch to keep you busy and intrigued. So come explore with me the surreal lodge that my family stayed in and discover the wonderful culture and beauty just up the road at Harrison Hot Springs!
