Have I mentioned before how much I value comfort? I refuse to be uncomfortable.  This doesn’t mean I wear sweatpants everyday…just most days.  For the days I’m out in public, I love me a comfortable pair of jeans.  These new boyfriend jeans from Yoga Jeans are all I have been wearing the last couple of weeks.  I wore this look out for an early Mother’s Day brunch over the weekend.  This trapeze top was the perfect pairing to get my weekend brunch on.

Weekends have become a sacred time to spend with my family.  To keep that whole balance thing going, I’ve been trying to keep to a Monday – Friday schedule as best I can.  Yes, there are some weekend work commitments that come up, but time with my hubby and sweet girl are my favourite way to spend any day.  With that time is precious idea, I have become a pretty low maintenance lady.  Not that I was ever really that high maintenance, but getting ready is not what it used to be.  A day with a shower and eyeliner is me being fancy.  So, these jeans are my version LBD.  They are a go to classic that I’ll be wearing all  Spring and Summer.  Want a pair of your own?  Check out my giveaway below.


One lucky Prairie Girl Reader will be winning a pair of Yoga Jeans!

I love this time of year.  Everything feels so much more full of joy.  The simplest things, like a walk, can be a fun adventure for Maddie and I, especially when Christmas lights are involved.   On Saturday we took Maddie to the Santa Clause parade.  These pics were not taken then.  Saturday was a miserable weather day.  It was grey and poured rain, but we bundled up, put on our rain boots and a fun day!  Our day involved Santa, hot cocoa, and a bit of shopping.  We made our own sunshine!

Speaking of sunshine, I’d like to spread a little to you.   One of you fabulous readers will win one of the 7 pairs of shoes I styled up over the past 7 days!

Consigning has become a popular trend out of necessity.  Buying new all the time is not only expensive but can be wasteful. In the day and age of over consumption, buying pre-used items is the ultimate way to recycle through reselling.  For all you Vancouver Mommies, there is now a one stop shop for you to stock up on all your baby, kid, and maternity needs.

Just Between Friends is the leading infant, children and maternity consignment sales event. They are all about families helping other families! They recycle the items your kids no longer need by re-selling the clothing, toys, furniture, and equipment that kids have outgrown. This means huge savings for families who love bargains! Items at the JBF sale are inspected for quality and meet all Health Canada safety regulations. Parents can find designer and boutique brands priced at 50-90% off retail. It is a great opportunity to support the wonderful moms and parents of the community, so get involved! Unsold items benefit our local charities Aunt Leah’s Place, Crabtree Corner and BabyGoRound. Families looking to recycle items your kids have outgrown, it’s not too late to sign up and consign! Sell your items and earn up to 70% cash, just in time for the holidays.

There is also an exclusive pre-sale for first time parents, grandparents and teachers, details atwww.vancouverbc.jbfsale.com

Congratulations to Masumi K!  You are the winner!


It seems when September rolls around, we start thinking about cozy sweaters, falling leaves, and pumpkin flavored everything.  The reality is that September is still actually quite a warm month with a strong sun.  This means we can’t forget about sun protection.

I’ve recently been introduced to the new Cloud Vitamin A Sun Protection.  Cloud is your guardian, neutralizing and preventing the constant injuries inflicted by sun and pollution {love this fact}.  Cloud Retinyl Palmitate protects against 93% more of the sun’s power than conventional sunscreen while providing long-lasting benefits you can see and feel in any weather.

So what does all this mean?  Cloud will prevent and reverse signs of aging, help in skin cancer prevention, and provide sun protection throughout the year.   A few of the things I love about the product is that it is paraben free, fragrance free, preservative free, and their labs are located in Victoria, BC so it’s a Canadian product!

Want to give it a try?  I am offering one lucky reader a Cloud bundle pack so you too can try out this new, gentle, local product.
