LAUNCH PARTY ROUND-UP #AHandbookForCoolMoms

*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…

WE’RE BRINGING SELF-ESTEEM BACK (YEAH!)

On Monday, we held our first ever speaking engagement (!!!) at SLMG, and since we’re admittedly completely unqualified to speak as “parenting experts,” we decided to talk about something that we are (more or less) experts on: The experience of early motherhood. A study performed by a team of Norwegian researchers (summarized here) recently revealed what…

REBEL MAMA HANGS

Yesterday we learned that if you flip a highchair upside down, it becomes a car seat holder and that if you ask the Gods nicely enough, you can, in fact, thwart a rainstorm. We also learned that when you put your truth and good vibes out there, incredible things can happen, including (but not limited…

WHERE (NOT) TO GO THIS CANADA DAY

Our lady Canada is turning 150 on Saturday, so there’s likely a boatload of internet lists of places you should head to with the family on July 1st – but for those of you who live in Toronto proper, are slightly reclusive, and are terrified by the idea of throngs of out-of-towners (and their spawn)…

A MOTHER’S DAY PSA FOR THE CLUELESS

Over the past few days, we’ve started really tuning into the chatter around us in order to better understand what moms truly want (or, more specifically what they don’t want) to have happen on Mother’s Day. We’ve been in a lot of situations recently where moms have been really straightforward about what their dudes do…

OH YES WE DID

We did it. All of us. Together. We told the world that moms (and women in general, for that matter) are no longer satisfied with the status quo. Actually, you guys told the world. You spoke with your wallets and you pledged your support for our little book that could. Yes yes, y’all – THE…
