FALL: REBEL MAMA STYLE

When we do fall, we go hard. How could one not love this season? Epic natural visuals (especially up here in The Great White North), a reason to drink three hot coffees a day, Paris Fashion Week, Virgo SZN, and that crisp breeze that whispers in your ear, “How shall we layer today?”  Raw denim and stacked-heel boots…

THAT TIME I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGNANT

#ConceptionsMisconceptions I was 25-years-old when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I’d spent the preceding three years living with my (then) 33-year-old boyfriend (with whom I’m still living, and to whom I’m still lovingly referring as “my boyfriend”), and while we both adored kids, we were miles away from actually trying…

A SURVIVAL KIT FOR THE REST OF US

When we were pregnant, we lived and died by the almighty list. There were lists for everything, coming at us from all directions. But being the task oriented, list-obsessed Virgos that we are – we secretly loved it. We had lists of foods to eat for optimum fetus health, exercises to do for optimum prenatal…

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…

MY MOM GUILT STORY

I’ve always found that the best way to rid the mind and soul of the bone-crushing weight of mom-guilt is to set your dirty little secret free. Free yourself from the responsibility of keeping that shame bottled up inside. Tell the world what you did that makes you CRINGE and then be done with it;…

‘YNOT’ SPOIL THEM?

I think we can all agree that buying gifts for men totally sucks. Birthdays and Christmas have always been a source of anxiety for me thanks to the pressure to find something “special” to give to the men in my life who somehow manage to always “need nothing”. Now that I’ve procreated, there’s one more…

REDEFINING THE “MOMAGER”

Leeloo is a trailblazing Rebel Girl, on her way to making positive change in the future. But behind her, is a Rebel Mama who made it all happen, simply by trusting her gut. This isn’t so much a story of Leeloominai – the 9 year old Toronto artist with a t-shirt business under her belt…

CONTRIBUTORS WANTED

Over the past few months, we’ve had a few brave mamas reach out to us to tell us that they had something they needed to share with their fellow Rebels. Something to get off their chests, something to bitch about, or to laugh about, or just something that they thought needed to be addressed. These…

THE CUT: JZHONNIE BECHET

I’m not sure where, when, or how I stumbled upon the subject of today’s surprise #RebelMama feature… but it doesn’t even matter – all that matters is that I found her, and let me just tell you, she’s a bloody pleasure to creep on Instagram. With a perfect mix of dreamy interior design inspo and…

FROM VISION TO REALITY

It’s high time you meet Andrea, officially our Branding Expert & Creative Partner at TRM… But we just call her “babe”. To give her a formal introduction, accompanied by a LinkedIn-style list of career highlights would be a huge injustice. The fancy little title we’ve given to her has got nothing on her title of sister,…

CHANGING OUR HAIRSTORY

So. We’ve been keeping a secret from you for the past month or so… A while back , we were contacted by the good people from Hairstory (you likely know them better by their former creation, Bumble and Bumble) and they said they had a new product line for us to rave about. We told…

THE CUT: NUDE YOGA GIRL & MEAGHAN JARENSKY

Every now and again, Nikita and I love to give some shout-outs to the Instagram personalities that inspire us most. Even when they have no idea we actually exist. Ahhh the beauty of Social Media – it can often be a deep, dark rabbit hole of very useless information (and way too many opinions) but…
