HYGGE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE IN 2019

You can’t deny that this is an awkward time of the year – right after Christmas holidays have wrapped. The tree has been tossed to the curb, and your once very cozy house suddenly feels empty, cold and depressing as hell with no signs of reprieve ’til Spring. So what can you do (aside from…

FOOD FOR THOUGHT WITH ABBEY SHARP

Meet Abbey. She’s a member of the RM community and she’s just published her first cook book – WITH an 8 month old baby on her hip. NBD. In Mindful Glow, she’s set out to share beautiful, flavourful recipes that also happen to be really good for you.  The idea is that when you’re emotionally…

LET HER HEAL

The transformation from maidenhood to motherhood is one that is too often taken too lightly.  It involves incomparable physical pain, indescribable emotional stress, and trauma that tends to be brushed off by outsiders as ‘normal’ and as a result, is either ignored or quickly forgotten.  But a mother doesn’t forget – not right away, at…

We’re talking lugging books 27 stops on the New York subway,…

I’M TRYING

Written by Meg Broadbent *  “I’m not pregnant.” It’s a phrase I’ve gotten used to saying lately, especially in texts to my husband. Tonight, I texted the same phrase to a few girlfriends, the ones who are in the know, who wait with me each month, eagerly awaiting day 28 when I’ll wake up in…

MOM BRAIN

Oh, you didn’t know it was a scientific term? Well, it isn’t. BUT IT SHOULD BE. As you may already know (or will shortly find out), you don’t only lose your marbles while pregnant… as it turns out, even years after bringing baby into the world, you still somehow manage to forget where you left…

HUNGOVER PARENTING

When you finally make it out of the house for (some strange version of) a night of good old-fashioned debauchery (Woo! MOMS NIGHT OUT), you’ll mostly likely have the best time ever.
