Living. Loving. Parenting: Hang out with us every Monday & Thursday

Dear Husbands of the world… I’m writing to you on behalf of your wives, the mothers of your children, the women that hold the fort down while you are at work, slaving away, providing for your family. We thank you, we love you and we appreciate all that you do. We do, seriously. But please, for the love of God, stop hanging it over our head like you deserve some sort of reward every week for doing it. Stop implying that you deserve a blow job because you passed the vacuum. Don’t insinuate that you’re doing us a favour by putting YOUR kids to bed so we can have a girls night with our mum friends or go to yoga. We didn’t ask for a trip to Tahiti for GROWING your child in OUR BODIES, and then BIRTHING said child, and then feeding it with magic milk produced through our beautiful...

Live an Awesome life Ever get the feeling that things move very quickly? That time waits for no one, and you're just going through the motions of a life you should be much happier with?  What about the principle of living your life, on your terms?  Sure, we all have issues with some part or certain aspects of our lives-things aren't usually perfect.  But, what if you could learn to live with more peace, and beauty, and less, wasted time, and regret? What if we could all find the time (that we think we don't have,) and live in the present moments of our lives?  How amazing! You may be thinking that I have some secret formula to tell you that will just make a huge difference to your life, but no, I don't have the magic spell to make your life truly amazing, peaceful, present, and full of awesomeness...

To Cover or Not? There is much debate these days regarding breastfeeding in public.  It's a subject that has very strong opinions between mothers, women, men and the rest of the general public.  It's absurd that we live in a world that seems to be more comfortable with partially nude fashion models, then of the breastfeeding mother. These days, companies have made it super trendy and fashionable to wear a breastfeeding cover while breastfeeding. Don't get me wrong, I definitely believe that it's a woman's choice if they want to use a breastfeeding cover or not.  Truthfully, there are many babies that don't like to be covered.  When babies get to a certain age, they are more interested in the world around them, and get distracted very quickly; they can't stand being confined, they want to look around their world, and not be covered while eating. If you are a breastfeeding mama and...

OFFICIAL: Bun in the Oven Maternity Photo Shoot We are so excited to unveil the first ever, OFFICIAL Bun in the Oven Maternity photo shoot!  We had so much fun shooting on the beautiful Palm Cay beach in Nassau, Bahamas.  The weather was a bit concerning-thunderstorms forecast periodically during the day, and we had to make sure that since we were shooting in natural light, the sun wasn't glaring.  It was quite an adventure, running in and out of the rain, taking only a few shots at a time.  Our model mama, Raquel was amazing, and such a trooper!  The sun ended up being perfect. Here's out it turned out...
