The falling leaves are indeed a beautiful sight, but it also signals that winter is coming soon! The cooler weather means harsher conditions on your baby’s delicate skin. With that in mind, I have already begun transitioning my baby’s skincare from fall to winter with the AVEENO® Baby® Eczema Care Line .

With the holidays fast approaching, I am already feeling all the festive vibes but what I was looking forward to the most this year is Adelina’s first photo with Santa Claus! Last year, we weren’t able to get a photo with Santa because we were still too busy adjusting to new parent life; And truthfully, I was really regretful about that but now she is older and walking, so I was determined to create this special tradition with her. Thankfully, I got that wish fulfilled when I got invited to the preview of Christmas at Metropolis at Metrotown where finally we got our first photo with Santa and it was definitely a memorable experience (so make sure you scroll down to the very end for the end result). This holiday season not only are there opportunities to have your photos taken with Santa, Metropolis at Metrotown also offers tons of other amazing services and of course shops to make your holiday shopping seamless!
The first thing that comes to mind when people hear Whistler, is that it’s a skiing and snowboarding destination, the clear emerald water of Joffre Lake and home to the 2010 Winter & Paralympics Winter Games; And yes, Whistler is all those things and so much more. Nestled in the Coast Mountains and just roughly a 2 hour drive north of Vancouver, Whistler B.C is a year round haven that offers an extensive range of accommodations and activities like spa, clubs, golfing, outdoor sports, and plenty of world-renown restaurants and bars etc. to satisfy your vacation needs. However, now coming back as a new parent, I’ve discovered that Whistler is also a great destination to take your kids and offers lots of family-friendly attractions. Today I am going to be sharing with you some great ideas for you to plan a unforgettable fall trip with your kids in beautiful Whistler B.C
Fall is my favourite time to travel because it’s not so busy, the prices are lower at hotels and the weather is still gorgeous. With my husband having time off and Adelina is now over a year old, I thought this would be the perfect time to take her on our first vacation together and we chose Parksville Qualicum Beach because it holds a special place in our hearts. We first fell in love with the city in 2010 and have returned every other year (our sixth visit this time) and every time we come back we discover something new and exciting. And speaking of new, this time we discovered the Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort located along the famous resort drive and had a fabulous 2 night stay at their spacious and modern west coast style 2-bedroom suite! Just a short ferry ride from Vancouver, Parksville in my opinion is the most family-friendly part of Vancouver Island and delights family with tons of options and activities to eat play and stay. What I also love about Parksville is that you don't need a ton of planning because there is so much to do and see and just a quick Google search and you will find plenty of great hotels, restaurants and activities for kids and adults. So if you are thinking of traveling this fall with your little ones, make sure to make Parksville Qualicum Beach your most desired destination.
Adelina’s Bath Time Fun with AVEENO® BABY® This post was sponsored by AVEENO® BABY®, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Adelina turned 1 in June and I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you some wisdom I have learned through this amazing year of new motherhood. Now for those that don’t have kids yet or are still pregnant, you may not understand the importance of establishing a routine. When a baby is born their world is chaotic. Therefore, babies will thrive on anything that gives them structure, rhythm and predictability to understand their new environment outside of the womb (1) Today, I am partnering up with AVEENO® BABY® to share with you Adelina’s bath time fun. Hopefully it will help some parents-to-be and new parents establish a great bath time routine with baby, so both you and baby can enjoy a good night’s sleep!
