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…

ADDICTED TO GIVING BACK

We are firm believers in using our voices to create positive change in the world. Whether that change is big or small, whether it affects one person or many, doesn’t really matter; what’s important is the realization that although it’s tempting to get wrapped up in using our online platforms just to drive traffic, get…

LIFE LESSONS WITH MALALA AND BARBIE

We need you to meet our friend, Ariane. Note that I didn’t say “we want you to meet” Ariane; that was a very deliberate “NEED” because she has a message about visual identity, media, and education that we all (parents and non-parents alike) need to read and fully digest. (We’re also giving away one of…

A LADY DATE AT MONTGOMERY’S

If you were to ask the average person which business they consider to be tougher: motherhood or restaurant ownership, they’d probably tell you that you have to be pretty friggin’ nuts to get into either. That’s why, when an old friend of mine, Kim Montgomery, opened up a new restaurant in the same year that…

WHEN CONTEST WINNERS TURN FRIENDS

So a while back, we threw ourselves a fun little Instagram Giveaway for a chance to win a “photo shoot” of your choice with yours truly. The word photo shoot is in quotations because I don’t take myself that seriously, and it sure as hell wasn’t a Glamour Shots session in a studio. Most of the photographs I’d…

LADYBOSS LESSONS WITH ASHLEIGH DEMPSTER

Ashleigh Dempster is no stranger to interviews and generally being in the centre of all things cool. As the former Toronto culture maven (The Society) and now footwear designer (AKID brand) based out of LA, with a  brood of three boys (including a hubby she met on a flight over to NYC) this girls got it…

MOM SWAG AT THE BABY SHOP

So you just had a baby – congratulations! You’ve got a helplessly adorable little worm, almost no sleep, and a whole bunch of gifts, the functions of which you’re still not exactly sure (I see you looking at that Snot Sucker with a “wtf” look on your face now, but trust me, you’ll be kissing…

TREAT YO POSTARTUM SELF

A woman and her body – It’s a complicated relationship. Housing and birthing a baby tends to complicate things further. On one hand, it’s impossible to walk away from the experience without thinking that your body is a powerhouse of strength and endurance; on the other hand, it’s difficult to ignore the fact that things…

KNOCK KNOCK! THE UBER OF MASSAGES IS HERE.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of pulling my back due to a walk back from the park that involved carrying my not-so-feather-light 2 year old on my shoulders for an entire four blocks (because you know, screw walking home from the park right now mom). I must have motioned the wrong way,…

DON’T MESS WITH MY SLEEP

Let me start by saying that I friggin’ love sleep. I’m not someone who can survive on 4 hours a night and to be honest, I’m not convinced the people who claim they can get by on so few z’s are even telling the truth. Sleep, to me, equals sanity. I take that shit very…

TO THE DADS WHO ARE DOING THE DAMN THING

Happy Rebel Papas Day – The day we get to tell you just how much we appreciate everything you do to make our family units thrive. Sometimes with young children running around, making messes, throwing tantrums, etc., it’s easy to forget to stop, and to take a step back, and to thank you for being…
