Holiday Family Traditions || #hannaJams #giveaway #gotitfree

I said to my husband two years ago that I was feeling like we didn’t have many holiday traditions. I loved growing up with consistent events and activities this time of year. It was something I looked forward to and now look back fondly on. From Christmas morning hikes, to oranges as the final piece to our stocking; I loved the little festive details my parents created. When Ally was born, I would consider our first Christmas as a family a completely write off. He was only a few months old and I was just trying to survive the new born exhaustion. But now that the kids are getting bigger we wanted to start our family traditions for them.

One of the traditions I loved is our Christmas Eve Pyjamas. Each year in the evening on the brink of Christmas day, we let the kids open one family gift. It’s always new matching family jams. We then lounge together. I love this holiday tradition. The cozy feeling, matching makes us feel like a unit and it helps to transition to bedtime!

Thank you Hanna Anderson for sending us this matching set. They are such great quality. I will say, that has been one of the struggles this fast year is a) trying prints in all sizes b) finding material that I’m actually okay with on my kids sensitive skin. Hanna is by far the softness and most durability family jams I’ve tried. Plus they are crafted with the very best organic cotton.

Feel Wonderful || Tips & Tricks for the holiday style season

Kira Nov 17 2018 0059 Kira Nov 17 2018 0060 Kira Nov 17 2018 0052 Kira Nov 17 2018 0055With the holidays just around the corner I’ve partner with Wonder Bra Canada to talk holiday style, feeling wonderful and comfortable at all your holiday events. Let’s face it, when attending a holiday function you want a bra that deliveries the BIG 3: fit, support and comfort. Here are my tips and tricks to finding the perfect bra for any holiday function this year:

1. Flatter Fit: Try the bra on! Even better? Bring the dress, top or sweater you’ll be sporting to see the fit it provides. Some dresses can be more revealing, so find the right cut of bra to suit your needs. Basically you want to pick a bra that won’t be showing. Strapless, convertible, halter.

Kira Nov 17 2018 0061 Kira Nov 17 2018 0062 Kira Nov 17 2018 00642. Comfort: For myself, trying a bra on is key to gagging comfort. And I love wireless bras! Yes ladies, they exist and still provide support. Do yourself a favour this season and try a wireless option, you be sure to feel comfortable at events for long periods of time.

3. Support: This one is so personalized. You know yourself what you may need, but I love to ask a professional instore for help. If your holiday occasion doesn’t involve a 30 minute run you may bot need the support you’d get from a sports bra. But in order to feel wonderful you can to feel supported. For myself, I prefer a lightly padded structure cup with no underwire. It’s just my preference, once you find the bra that fits like magic you’ll know too. Kira Nov 17 2018 0068Kira Nov 17 2018 0067Kira Nov 17 2018 0066

Be your own kind of wonderful this holiday season and find the perfect bra BFF for all your holiday events. A bra that fits perfectly is a game changer. Happy shopping and season greetings!

Style || Feeling Festive and Warm || Welcome to the plaid party! #Look #OOTD #MiniAndMeStyle

We have so much to be thankful for this year… among the many things, our health is one of them. Maybe it’s the time of year or the fact that the C word hit one of our beloved family members early this year. Either way, I’ve been reflecting hard. Honestly, all I want for Christmas this year is good company, quality time and the opportunity to make memories with the ones I love most. For the second year in a row, we’ve decided not to do gifts for the adults. Only a choice few for the kids and stockings. And donate our time to organizations that fill up our gratitude cup. Last year felt so carefree removing the gift stress for both our little nucleus and the extended family. With that said, in years past I’ve done many gift guides but this year I’m going to focus on functional gifts, family experiences or low price finds. Hopefully this inspires you to take a page out of my book and focus on what really matters this season. Time! Time to be present, listen and share.

With all that said, here’s my first gift suggestion… instead of a gift guide. If you live in Canada the gift of winter boots can be such a blessing! Very functional, as you’ll likely enjoy them for over half the year. As a family, I recognize the financial burden winter boots can bring. Kids grow fast, love to be outside and need warm non slip boots! They can need several pairs a season due to sizing or wear. Plus, functional boots are always a welcome donation for many organizations working to help keep the homeless winter ready and safe. Consider a warm pair of boots as a gift for a loved one or as your holiday donation because they are so appreciated by so many. It’s really giving the gift of the outdoors in a way, I love that.

Thank you Cougar for sending these pairs to help us get winter ready, we have loved them! Both pairs are waterproof and so warm for our legit winter weather. Plus, they are a Canadian company. If you’ve followed me for quite some time you’ll know supporting Canadian companies is super important to me and they’ve been at it for over 65 years!

Style || Last Days of Winter || How you can score my fav boots and coat at a discount…

Here’s to hoping this is the last winter style post you have to see until late November but I’m probably dreaming! In any case, this time of year is the best time to score some major deals on outerwear and boots. I love coats, boots and bags! And of which are normally a pretty penny, so it feels good to snag some good end of season sales.
