Today is very exciting for me, because, as you may have noticed, North Shore Mama has a brand new look!
A year and a half ago, with the help of my amazing husband, I started the North Shore Mama blog as a means for parents to access information about family events and activities on the North Shore. I could have never anticipated that this little blog of mine would also become an outlet that I now rely on in so many ways.
Through North Shore Mama, I have had the opportunity to share milestones and challenges as a mother. I have had the chance to connect deeply with others in our city (and beyond!) and I have made friendships that I cherish to no end. North Shore Mama has given me a voice and a way of reaching out, even in those times where I have been unable to leave the home due to surgery recoveries and nap times.
In the past 18 months, I have watched (in amazement and with great appreciation) as family members, friends, and mostly complete strangers have joined the North Shore Mama community and I wanted to let you know that you have all provided me with so much joy and pride in what I am working at tirelessly. I spend almost all of my spare time on North Shore Mama and it has been so rewarding to have you all join me along the way. So… THANK YOU!
To show my utmost gratitude for your loyalty, I have teamed up with Vonbon and we have a very special giveaway to kick off the new and improved North Shore Mama!
If you haven’t heard of Vonbon yet, you are seriously missing out.
Jennifer and Kristin, stylish sisters and thoughtful gift givers, were sick of buying traditional baby wears for the many expectant mothers in their lives. Lovers of fashion, design and above all, quality, they saw a need for premium, eco-friendly goods that represented their modern tastes for both mother and child. Inspired by the sophistication of neutral palettes that work to transition among all elements of their lives, Vonbon designs are appropriate for either gender, any age and all homes.
Handmade and carefully crafted in their inspiring, sun-filled studio in beautiful Vancouver, BC, each product has been mindfully created for trendy babies and their even trendier parents. Certified organic, using only water-based inks and made in small batches, each pattern is purposefully designed to mix and match and make the style uniquely yours.
Vonbon products are soft, cozy, and beautiful! We are lucky to have a collection of their items for our girls. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, or you just want some quality (and pretty) baby gear for your own wee one, you should really “Get your Vonbon on”!
Madeleine and Portia allowed me to do a bit of a Mamarazzi shoot the other day wearing their sweet Vonbon pieces.
Blush Antler Knotted Hat! I know too many people who this pattern would be perfect for!
Portia was hard to capture in her Vonbon Blush Chevron Infinity Cowl but she loved the idea of taking pictures of Madeleine, so I took advantage of her standing still for a few seconds.
This Blush Triangle Bib Bandana with matching Headband and Blanket are my personal favourites!
Happy baby in her Gray Feather Headband!
There’s nothing better than being able to support a local business and know that what you’ve purchased is of such great quality. We are so in love with our Vonbon and we want to share that love with you. One very lucky North Shore Mama reader will win $150 to spend at Vonbon on whatever your heart desires!
