Taking the veggie turn!

Hi all! I know I haven’t posted in a very long time but …

It’s all about to change!!

I have a lot of new outfit ideas, store/brand recommendations and VEGGIE MEAL IDEAS to share with you 😀

Yes. We have taken a veggie turn around here. (My boyfriend still has to be completely convinced but it’s coming along!) So the compromise is that we are Weekday Vegetarians.

There are SO MANY REASONS to take the veggie turn. I think the first thing to do, if you are not already a vegetarian, is to inform yourself. Read articles. Watch documentaries (Food inc. for example was really eye-opening for me).

I am not going to go on a rent on why meat consumption in this current era and age, is so bad for you but I will urge you to inform yourself & share these :

10 reasons to go vegan ~ I started with vegetarian years ago, and found it to be a great diet. Then went vegan in 2010 and wow, amazing. it's a journey of understanding how it affects everything in the world including my health:

Reasons for a plant based diet. #vegetarian vegetarian recipes:

SOOO if you want to try, removing meat from your meals (as much as possible), then you might enjoy my posts because I will be sharing the beast EASY meals I have come accross in my quest!

Remember, I am a cooking hater (its so long and boring and gets eaten in 15 minutes whats the poiiiint) but hey we all have to eat and I DOOO enjoy eating hehehe

So our latest discovery is this ONE PAN MEXICAN QUINOA :

One Pan Mexican Quinoa - Wonderfully light, healthy and nutritious. And it's so easy to make - even the quinoa is cooked right in the pan!

It is so delicious seriously and really easy to make. My tip : Be sure to use Fresh Cilantro! It makes alllll the difference !!

Let me know what you think!

Love

A look back on summer- Part 1

SONY DSC

Hi All! It’s been a while!

Busy mom over here, but I’m back with a series of posts on baby fashion, it’s the last of Oli’s looks from summer past 🙂

SONY DSC

 

OH JEANS OVERALLS! One of the cutest item for babies (because they’re the only ones who can get away with it actually).

Oli is wearing a pair of vintage shortalls actually, so it was perfect for those last summer days. But since it’s getting colder now, you can go with the long pant version with a long sleeve shirt and its still gonna look uber cute!

xox

One last party before the summer ends…

One-pieces are the shiznit (pardon my french).

These little shorts and t-shirt all-in-one, are so easy to put on and to open up to change the diapee!

And they look so darn cute.

Especially this one from Old Navy.

I don’t think they have it anymore but if you find one similar, get it! Your little one is going to be so comfy!

 I especially like seeing toddlers in them, it keeps them looking like babies for just a little bit longer…;)

(oh and here is a similar one from Gap !)

Whistle & Flute Clothing

I have a new crush. Yes I’m falling in love with Whistle&Flute Clothing!

Here’s the little guy rocking their tee and cap:

photoSo cute and comfortable! And the hat fits Oli’s huge head! yay!

They are a Canadian company and they have these gorgeous designs for baby boys, girls and even mom & dad. So you can wear the same tee as your kid and the whole family can match ! awwwww cuteness overload!

I had to get their Kawai Cloud Toddler Cap

AND their ” Je t’aime” t-shirt of course. Being from Montréal, Canada I speak French and I  loved this as soon as I saw it!JeTaime_400w

 

Next step : a t-shirt for mama to match ! yessss 🙂

Best shoes EVA

OUR LITTLE OLIVER STRIKING A POSE IN HIS FAVE SHOES

The search for the perfect toddler shoe is quite an arduous one.

You have the soft sole shoe, the knitted baby shoe, the hard sole shoe, the ones with velcro, the ones with laces, the slip-ons, and the list goes on.

Of course you can add to that the fact that you want to find the cutest and funkiest little shoe possible. ( that doesn’t cost 50$ because your kid will outgrow it in 2-3 months probably…)

SO

I AM

PLEASED TO

ANNOUNCE

THE

BEST

SHOE

EVA :

YOCHI YOCHI’S !

They are so easy to put on. They are so easy to close, just velcro those suckers up. They are made of super comfortable materials, you can feel the difference just by touching the inside. AND they have the cutest darn designs ever.

We bought these :

SW-30160-4_1

 

 

 

And we love them. SO much. And our little monster seems to love them too, they’re the only pair that doesn’t make him scream when we put them on… 🙂

Definitely recommend them!

Hard days night

We all know that being a mama is not easy.

I would even say it’s downright cruel sometimes.

You feel so much love and yet so frustrated sometimes. Often, at the same time.

You stop having time for yourself. Forget that hot meal, you’re gonna have to eat it cold. Cause even if you reheat it in the microwave, it’s gonna keep getting cold because you’re busy with your babe. So you just give in and eat the damn macaroni freezing cold.

And I could go on and on with the stuff that you don’t think about when you see that beautiful mommy-baby bond on t.v or in the magazines. In real life, it’s gets ugly, messy, lonely, stressful and HARD.

But hey, enough with the ranting.

Because sometimes it’s good to remember why we are doing all this. How super amazing we are and how  terribly lucky we are.

So today I want to introduce you to Sarah Driscoll. I great mommy blogger that helped me get through those having-a-hard-mommy-days :

We can do it mamas of the world!
