Momkins // Florals and Turquoise

A  floral shift dress and Turquoise jewelry (or anything Turqouise) is my favorite Summer uniform.  Turquoise reminds me of all the tropical vacations that I dream about daily, and a good floral frock is always a must.  Pick bold and oversized floral patterns with a dark background so the colors pop.  This will make your  dress have a more modern vibe, and be less “borrowed from my grandma’s closet”.   I love pairing shorter dresses with neutral suede or leather booties or sandals to keep it grounded and not too girly.   Or! Even better, forget the shoes and go barefoot and dance away with your babiekins on the sand at the beach!  Summer is here, horray!

Momkins//Of One Tribe

There are few things I find more beautiful than the bond between a mother and her children. Our incredible love for each other is what binds us. It was my goal to artistically, yet realistically capture those intense emotions of love and belonging. I also wanted to create a literal representation of our family bond, thus our Of One Tribe story was born.

Momkins // What's in the Backpack

Do you sport a backpack? I stopped after grade school and didn’t start again until the arrival of my second little guy when I ran out of arms.  The convenience of having two hands free to grab the two of them when needed can’t be beat. It’s also a plus that Dad will happily wear it when he is with us. This backpack is a bit smaller than my traditional diaper bag so it’s helpful in stopping the pack mule in me from stuffing in too many unnecessary items, but really, can you ever pack too much?! Always be prepared right?! Shown here are some of my favourite products that I use on the daily. Since I love these products so much, I have multiples of them which can also be found in Mason’s regular diaper bag and change table.  Clearly the majority of it is for the little guy, but always included are the necessities for myself (cellphone, water, keys and wallet). I also take some spare clothes and diapers with me, but I usually keep those in a separate bag and leave it in the trunk of my car.  Carter has his own backpack to tote around such things as his toys, water and snacks. Perhaps I’ll ask him to show us what’s in his backpack next!
