My criteria for great clothing is quite straightforward: it needs to be 1) comfortable (no cutting in anywhere) 2) durable (I have a busy, toddler-messy lifestyle) 3) good-looking but not too glamorous (it simply isn’t my style, if I had one!). Thankfully, this Fall I was introduced to Aventura Clothing when they asked me to come on board as one of their Canadian ambassadors. Based in the Sierra Nevadas, this lifestyle apparel brand has started to win me over, mainly because it fulfills my three criteria and because I like to support companies that are making efforts to product eco-friendly clothing.
When my daughter became a fairly competent self-feeder, I struggled to find snacking containers and bottles that would serve us well on-the-go, whether we were out biking, hiking, travelling or just running errands in town. When Eco Vessel came knocking on my inbox, it was perfect timing and I thought I’d give their products a whirl!
One thing I’ve learned as an outdoorsy mother is that the way you carry or transport your baby is the key to being active outdoors with your baby.
When the snow began to fall here in the Canadian Rockies, I immediately started to think about what I could do outdoors with my baby girl. Whatever we did, she’d have to be able to ride on me or in a sled or Chariot. I would also have to able to keep her warm. While I would be working up a sweat walking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, she’d be sitting still and getting cold.
