DIRTY MAGIC IN NYC (PHOTO RECAP)

#mamasontour * Making shit happen is unglamorous, uncomfortable, and unpredictable. New York City can be all of those things too, but there is literally no better place in the world to go to test your hustle. We’re talking rats, pigeons, pigeon-rats and serendipitous run-ins. We’re talking lugging books 27 stops on the New York subway,…

HATCH + ANI & WREN EVENT // PHOTO RECAP

Last Thursday morning we had the good fortune to have been invited to sit around with a bunch of brilliant powerhouse women to chat about motherhood, entrepreneurship and FASHUN – all our favourite things. *click photos to expand* It was a day of putting faces to Instagram handles and forging new friendships that we know…

RM RECAP: BAD GIRLS COLLECTIVE (AKA THE BADDEST BOOK CLUB IN THE LAND)

Last Monday we had the pleasure and privilege of leading a discussion about Motherhood (as in the revolutionary fictional biography – “Motherhood” – by Toronto author / legend, Sheila Heti) for the Bad Girls Collective Book Club at The Gladstone Hotel. Over 100 women gathered that night for a literary discussion that exploded into a…

MAMAN: LADIES + LUNCH (F.O.M.O. INDUCING PHOTO RECAP)

It was about a month ago that we dreamt up the idea to throw a lunch party of epic proportions with none other than our fabulous friends (aka family) from the Chopard Boutique at Sherway. Why not, right? Joie De Vivré is our M.O. these days and we wanted to do something for ourselves (and…

*click photos to expand* For the past 365 days we have worked our asses off to produce The Rebel Mama’s Handbook for (Cool) Moms: an early motherhood instruction manual and an art book – all in one monochromatic package. We stuck to every deadline we set. We juggled like our lives depended on it. And…

RM GUIDE TO MIAMI

If you’ve had it up-to-here with dehydrated skin and toddlers that need an array of layers to get out of the house, I have one sexy little word for you: MIAMI. In less than 3 hours, you could be park your so-over-it ass at an ocean front hotel and have glistening turquoise water gently lull…

DON’T BE A SHITTY INFLUENCER: A GUIDE

Last week, I had the privilege of sharing the stage with some pretty fucking incredible women [Alyssa Kerbel (Mini Mioche Founder); Tamar Huggins (Tech Spark Founder + Executive Director); and Kim Smiley (Philanthropist + Fashion Designer)] at the #MOMBOSS event put on by Moms TO at Shopify HQ – right here in the heart of…

RM + EBW POP UP RECAP

On a frigid Thursday night in Toronto last week, a bunch of brave Rebels gathered together at Early Bird and Worm on Roncesvalles to keep the cold weather out and the good vibes in. There were new faces (along with a few vintage classics). There was chilled proscecco. And there were a lot of people who…

THE REBEL MAMA’S GUIDE TO NON-SHITTY GIFTING

I’m not gonna lie, we were hesitant to jump on the gift guide bandwagon this year. After all, we are known for efforts to fight the over-gifting epidemic; so before we were able to put our fingers to the keyboard on this bad boy, we needed to ask ourselves one very important question… is it possible…

TORONTO FAMILY DYNAMICS (BY ‘HOOD)

Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods; each with very specific family dynamics living within them. The following collections of local stereotypes are hilarious because (a) they’re true and you know it, and (b) they don’t matter – at the end of the day, when we escape our neighbourhood bubbles (which we all do – we’re cultured…

A HEARTY THANK YOU

Well, kids – we did it. We submitted the completed manuscript of our book to our publisher last week, and you know what? WE ARE PROUD AS SHIT OF IT! It is exactly what we had hoped it would be. It is a girlfriend’s guide to early motherhood. It’s all the stuff your mom and…
