The Best Gluten and Dairy free Snacks!

Hello all! Wow, it's been a while since I last posted on here. If you haven't been following me on Instagram (or in real life) lately, we are now a family of four! It's been a busy few weeks with two little ones, but I wouldn't change it for anything. I mean, just look at this little peanut.




Anyways! I've been meaning to make this post for a while now. For those who don't know, my daughter, Addison has had some gut issues her whole life (Good news though-I'm pretty sure she's almost finally on the mend! That'll be another post.) So finding snacks that are free of all the allergens/inflammatory foods and that still taste good is hard to do. If you're living a gluten free, dairy free or  vegan lifestyle I hope this post helps!

Here's some of our favourite snacks ( they all have minimal ingredients):

If you can't have corn, these are great tortilla chips! They're made with cassava flour and are nice and light.

These almond crackers are a good alternative to your typical rice or corn crackers. They taste yummy and have a lot of different flavours to choose from.

These cookies are great if you have a sweet tooth! Addison loves them.

This is our favourite "ice cream". Again, minimal ingredients and it's sweetened with honey so I don't feel guilty giving it to my daughter. 

If you like cheesies, then you will love these cauliflower puffs - We do! And a bonus, they have probiotics in them!


I order most of these foods from Natura Market . They have so many healthy goodies to choose from, from paleo to vegan.



If you have any treats you love, please let me know! I'm always looking for healthy goodies.

A Quick 36 Weeks Pregnant Update!

Hello all! I can't believe I'm at 36 weeks already. Time flies when you're pregnant with a toddler I tell ya. But I'm not complaining.


We are so excited to meet this little one. Honestly, it's very bittersweet, going from spoiling just one with all the attention to soon having to divide it between two. But I am so excited for the lifelong bestfriend Addison will have. My sister is my bestie and I just hope my girls have a very similar relationship.


At my last OB appointment they said the baby was already engaged, so who knows if it'll be two weeks or four more! But until then I'm trying to really soak up the days of it just being Addison and I. I am feeling so very pregnant though and am so grateful for comfy maternity clothes! I had a few questions about this "mama bear" tank top from Pink Blush. They also have it in pink and grey!
You can find my tank top HERE. They also have a cute 'mama bear' night shirt.

I'll keep you guys updated on when this little girl decides to make an appearance. Any guesses as to when she will come?

IKEA DIY Buffet Table/Sideboard

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great weekend.

If you love IKEA furniture and are into DIY projects, then this is a post for you!

Whenever I post pictures of my dinning room on Instagram, I often get questions about our buffet table. So I thought I'd share what we did to change it from a piece of our old entertainment centre to a dining room sideboard. Well, what my husband had to do anyways. It was fairly simple...I think.



So this is what it looked like before.



This is the piece we transformed HERE .

All we did was switch out the doors from solid to glass: GLASS DOORS HERE.

And we ordered special legs from PRETTY PEGS. They specialize in pretty legs, knobs and now doors FOR Ikea furniture.


And that's it! Just a few changes and we took a tv console and changed it into a buffet table for our dining room.


But if you're not in the DIY stuff and can afford to splurge, here's some really lovely sideboards I've been swooning over.

Toddler Summer Fashion

       Hey mamas, I'm not sure about your little minis, but Addison is a little fashionista already. She isn't even three yet but she changes her outfit ATLEAST 3 times day.  I may be to blame for this, but I'm okay with that.
Now that the warm weather is finally here in Canada, we can dress our little princesses in sweet summer dresses!
Here's a few items I found that I thought were super cute for summer:
