The bundle, which consists of four wardrobe staples (a simple dress, leggings, skirt and tank) has just what you need for both practicality and comfort. I have been sleeping in the tank, doing yoga in the leggings, and wearing the dress ...

Last week I made a quick trip over to Amsterdam for a team meeting and planning session. It was the first time I've seen Esther and Emilie since we were together in NYC for the ShopUp last September -- the longest we've gone without seeing each other since we became friends 11 years ago! Of course, arriving at ...

Hatch -- layers and jeans
Hatch is one of my favourite maternity fashion brands -- I love the way they design clothes that are wonderfully flattering and comfortable to wear during pregnancy, but also very much so beyond. I'm still wearing the pieces I bought when I was pregnant with Casper, and in fact, I just placed another little order ...

Of course there is that wonderful, magical feeling of bliss -- the birth, that beautiful, earthy smell, seeing and holding your baby for the first time, admiring every detail of him (her), spending your days on the couch, in bed, being so proud, feeling ...
