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…

THINGS WE LEARNED UP AT THE FARM

This week we were invited by our new pals from Up Cannabis to The New Farm in Creemore, Ontario to go… wait for it… GLAMPING. Yes – it’s an actual thing and yes, it’s actually kind of amazing; even for two bonafide city kids like us. While (hashtag) Up at The Farm, we actually managed…

NON-TOXIC SKINCARE: A RUNDOWN BY S.O.S.

Let us formally introduce you to the ladies of S.O.S. (Soap on Skin): our girls, Holly and Sofia. They’re a pair of not-quite Rebel Mamas who are obsessed with skincare and cosmetics and speak to it from a “clean” perspective (without being preachy A-holes. #bless). They run an Instagram account that we adore (@soaponskin) where…

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…

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…

HOW TO CONVINCE YOUR MAN TO GET A VASECTOMY

By now you all know that we love us some Workin’ Moms. We love the show for a laundry list of reasons – it’s hilarious, it’s empowering, it’s Canadian – but just when we thought we couldn’t love it any more, it basically handed us A Girlfriend’s Guide to Convincing Your Man to Get A…

10 THINGS I’D RATHER DO THAN WATCH THE OLYMPICS

My earliest memories of The Olympics are fond ones. I remember my grandparents (both Jamaican immigrants to Canada) watching religiously when it was on. Of course, at the time, I would have much rathered “Lamb Chop’s Play Along” been playing in the background, but alas, I was merely a child at a time when it…

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT… DEATH

Moms: The Undercover Queens of Morbid Thoughts. Sure, we might always be the first to reassure everyone else that there’s nothing to worry about and that everything’s going to be ok, but our internal dialogue? Oh dude – Stephen King ain’t got nothing on us. Why do you think we’re always going in to “check…

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…

A VERY REBEL XMAS PARTY

What went down last Friday night could hardly be categorized as “just another Christmas party” – not by a long shot. At 8pm on December 8th, fifty rebellious women descended upon the private dining room of the unassuming (yet undeniably chic) Skin + Bones in Toronto’s East end. There was enough female energy in there…
