Spring 2016 Indigo Haul

Indigo, Chapters and Coles

It’s no surprise I LOVE shopping, but most of all I love a great sale! During the week leading to Mother’s Day, Indigo has a brilliant sale for 25% off many of their items; which resulted in the great Spring 2016 Indigo Haul. It worked out perfectly as I need to get a few things for my little lady who was starting daycare the week after my online shopping trip. Of course, I got a few chic items for myself. After all, I deserved a few mother’s day gifts for myself.

Book Review: “Boobin’ All Day Boobin’ All Night”

The Milk Meg, Meg Nagle Boobin All Day

I recently read a brilliant, as-in-I-can’t-get-over-how-great-it-is, book, “Boobin’ All Day Boobin’ All Night”, by Meg Nagle, an Australia based International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. It was my very first Amazon Kindle purchase as I wanted an on-the-go version because I KNEW I would not be able to put this book down. I finished it in 2 days, and that’s while keeping up with a 13 month old!
