Mothers are dedicated, hardworking, loving beings who often put themselves last when it comes to needs and wants; many going above and beyond the call of motherly duty. Mother’s Day has passed, the one day a year set aside to honour these life-giving people, but I think all moms deserve more than just one day of recognition for all that they do. Flipp thinks so too, and so for the month of May, to give back to deserving moms, they have launched some special #FlippforMoms giveaways aimed at helping mom feel pampered, loved and relaxed.

One of Vancouver’s most highly anticipated children and family events is coming in just 3 short weeks; from May 30 – June 5, Granville Island will be the site of the 39th annual Vancouver International Children’s Festival. True to its name, the festival has a performance line up reaching as far as the Netherlands and Mexico, as well as some hometown and Canadian favourites. With diverse performing arts shows geared to different ages groups, there is something for everyone from babies and tots to tweens and teens, and of course, their caregivers.
The first of its kind in North America, the Vancouver International Children’s Festival began as a theatre festival for young audiences presenting international performances. Today the Festival is multi-disciplinary presenting theatre, music, dance, circus, puppetry and storytelling and over the years has been an inspiration to major cities throughout Canada and abroad, where annual children’s festivals now take place.
It’s that time of year again! I am always excited when May long weekend creeps up on us, because it means the Rodeo is back in town. If you haven’t had a chance to explore the Cloverdale Rodeo yet, there’s a whole lot happening and it’s perfect way to spend the weekend. As a kid, we used to go as a family, since having Alivia we’ve always been out of town or working on May long (boo!), so we were super excited that my work schedule has changed to having Saturday’s off, and we’re so spending one of them at the Rodeo! Whether you are a country fan or not, there’s no denying that the Cloverdale Rodeo brings together country and city in an amazing mix of displays and entertainment! So strap on your boots, dust off those wranglers and join us for one of North America’s longest running and most entertaining displays at the 70th annual Cloverdale Rodeo!
There is something about Spring time… the flowers start to grow, the lawn seems to grow significantly quicker oh, and my kid seems to literally jump a size in her clothing – OVERNIGHT. This seems to be the perpetual battle of most parents, amiright? The constant battle of trying on a shirt one day, and the next time you go to put it on them it won’t go over arms, or head! We have been battling that huge over the past few months. We have gone up a full size in shoes, pants and shirts and I swear she’s sprouted up height wise without me noticing.
So, how do you stock your kids wardrobe and still stay within a budget? Some would say consignment stores are where it’s at, or online bidding wars if you can luck out and grab a bunch for cheap, or do you pray that there will be a sale at a children’s clothing store and buy what you need? We’ve got a MUCH better, cheaper solution, and a great chance to support a work at home team. Continue reading →
Can you believe it’s spring time already? As the sun beams through my windows daily onto a nice thick layer of winter dust, it reminds me again that the inevitable need to purge all the excess stuff I’ve collected over the past year has come around again. Time to do a massive declutter, garage sale, and start the deep pre-summer clean! Continue reading →
