This is a look you’ll see me in far more then anything dressy. I love to stay active, getting myself and baby out of the house each day is often the priority. I’m lucky enough to live near Edmonton’s river valley that has some of the most amazing walking trails in Canada. Plus, I’m loving the newly renovated Borden Park! Isn’t this sculpture amazing! … it matches my outfit perfectly.
On a side note, I’m a bit obsessed with my monogram RUN tank top from my connected collection for eLUXE. My line includes this tank and two other designs that are now officially on sale online. Find all three designs exclusively at eLUXE.
This tank is for all my girls out there, that hit the ground running everyday. Run it girl!
If you follow me on instagram, you know I LOVE this time of year, so naturally when it came to Halloween I had a little trouble editing myself; basically, I got Alastair two adorable costumes for this year’s festivities!… Oops! But after taking these photos, I’m not sorry at all. I needed these photos in my life!
Probably one of the most asked questions I get on social media is… who takes the photos of Mister Alastair and how do they look the way they do? I do! With a SL1 Canon camera, along with some of the tricks I’ve learned from the Baby Moments App online. I think the biggest tip I learned there, is to shoot next to a large window, so you get plenty of natural light… if it’s too bright, I defuse the light through white curtains. Also, I almost always shoot in portrait mode, it really helps capture his face and little details easily. I love to capture seasonal events, like Halloween, along with the developmental milestone every mommy wants to remember. For more detailed tips, I suggest browsing the Baby Moments App, it also gives you really great tricks on how to capture those little moments you may want for that baby book.
In other exciting news, I’m giving away a Canon Selphy CP910 Printer, because if you are anything like me, you may not print as many pictures as you would like! I am notorious for forgetting to send in my files for prints. This printer takes that hassle out of the equation. You can print directly from compatible devices, from memory cards to cameras, you can easily print away from the comfort of your own home!

I’m so excited to be part of Smart Set’s 1 piece 10 style project, the concept is simple: 10 fashionable ladies from across Canada create a look every month with the same piece of clothing. It’s amazing to see how different body types, style preferences and ages can come together on one piece of clothing and rock it every time in so many different ways. For the month of October, I got to style Smart Set’s long cardigan for a warm fall day of errand running and baby play dates. This cardigan has the most amazing texture, we all know I love a good knit, so it was an easy sell for me. I wanted to be able to layer up for the day but still maintain my shape… that’s where this adorable bow belt comes in. I’m a big fan of belting cardigans, it has a way of flattering everyone’s figure in a matter of seconds! I really wanted to maintain a level of comfort for my on-the-go mommy day but still needed some level of polish and sophistication. This cardigan is easily that kind of verstile piece I needed for fall, it’s that perfect blend of comfort, function and fashion. Don’t walk, run down to a Smart Set near you to give it a try, it comes in so many colour and texture options, I’m confident you’ll find one right for you!
