Can we take a moment to appreciate this peak season organic butternut squash?! 🙌🏻✨It's no secret that I am addicted to winter squash at this time of the year, especially when roasted! Roasting brings out its sweet, nutty flavour, and it goes great in bowls, burritos, salads, and more. . . . #holisticnutrition #organicfood #vegan #veganrecipes #seasonaleating #eatingwiththeseasons #recipecreator #food52grams #f52grams #feedfeedvegan #iamwellandgood #613blogger #beautifulfood #fitfoodie #monday #whatrunnerseat #healthyandwhole #healthylifestyle #homemade #naturalwellness #colourfulfood #foodislove
Happy Monday! Somehow I’m already singing Xmas songs and in the mood to bake. Made tamales over the weekend, and some ginger cookies will be coming out of the oven soon. Love having my little helper for these moments. On a side note, after two years of FGG, had my very first cherry pie fridge oats this am. They are so good! 🍒Did some serious meal prep yesterday for a great week plan! Now to get that workout in. #bbgfitgals #fitgirlsguide #fitgirlvarsity #fitbabesunited #fitmom #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
Happy Saturday! Look at the gorgeous hues in that November sky from early this am. I’ve been out shopping, birthday parties, all the things that Saturday’s bring. And we had our first snow that stayed yesterday.. Just a sprinkling but the weather today is cold and hella windy. #winterishere #saturdayvibes #novembersky #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative

Today’s look was inspired by a look I found on Pinterest because I was hotting a style-slump and needed a little pick-me-up. One of my favourite ways to keep my outfits fresh is to get outside influence. It saves me a trip to the mall because I can usually recreate a look by shopping my closet @msbeltempo is amazing at this and does videos on her You Tube Channel. Want some inspiration for your own daily style? Check out my Pinterest, I have some amazing fashion boards like “Style Over 30”, “Minimalist Style Inspiration”, “Street Style Inspiration”, “Fall Style Inspiration” & “Personal Style Tips” amongst many more.

It's November which means the chances that you've already heard Christmas music playing in the last five days is high, and you've definitely seen Christmas decor out and inundating us with the need to spend! Thank goodness, American thanksgiving is around the corner and has a lot of people turning their minds towards being grateful and mindful of what they have in their lives. As Canadians, we have already gone through this process, and I have spent the last few weeks turning the ideal of being grateful into a practical model that helps build community. . This month, I challenge you to join me in #thegratitudeinitiative . Go through your homes, and find useful items that others may need, and then find a new local spot to donate too. The big spots tend to get all the focus and it's easier to amass your purged items and do one drop off. But there are many initiatives out there that put donations directly in the hands of those that need, without a monetary middle man. . This year I turned my fall deep clean into a lesson in sharing with my kids and made sure to choose items based on usefulness, rather than just things we've outgrown or don't want anymore. We then chose several organizations and have been making our way through our list. The kids have a direct visual of what it means to give as they come along in the process, but also get a chance to see who is receiving their items in some instances. It's been my favourite way to kick off the season of giving. . Tag #thegratitudeinitiative as you get to work being a real live elf and help spread the love this season. Check out this week's blog post for some ideas of where to start and where to give.

Stopped by the UC for lunch today and got a sandwich from The Barbecue District! Did you know everything they serve is all gluten free? The BBQ district and Basil box are two locations on campus that are entirely gluten free!

Hey Ravens, if you haven’t had a chance to yet be sure to check out my new article on caf hacks! I wrote about how you can make all kinds of cool foods like these deviled eggs!
Happy Fri-YAY! It’s been a great week and now we’re breaking into November with a weekend packed full of party plans and get togethers. I love how the colder season brings everyone together. Summer time is for wandering, winter is for hosting. It’s rainy outside today, but this little girl can’t wait to get her sunshine stack. #pancakelove #pancakefriday #proteinpancake #breakfast #cleaneats #madewithlove #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
We’re back home and the kids are in bed. What a fun Halloween night! I couldn’t get over how cute my littles looked in their costumes running around the neighborhood. But I think the fave make for this year was the wolf mask. I want to make more animal masks! Hope you all had a fun and safe evening ! #halloween #halloweencostume #homemadecostumes #theflash #flashcostume #peppapig #peppapigcostume #littleredridinghood #thebigbadwolf #wolfmask #shessocrafty #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
Happy Halloween Ravens ! Make sure to eat lots of treats ❤️
Happy Halloween! Although I’ve been sewing costumes for a couple of weeks, I never got around to decorating the house. Until last night when I whipped up some last minute decorations. You know I’m a fan of the instant gratification DIY’s! This door wreath came together in minutes out of random items found in my craft box. We didn’t manage to carve, but our pumpkins didn’t miss out on personality just because we procrastinated about it this year! A simple paper bat wall display ( these were left over from the boy’s bday party) and a little bit of streamer with a balloon and voila, instant spider. The kids were so excited about these easy peasy decorations this morning, which proves that it doesn’t take much time, money or effort to make fun memories for the littles. #halloween #halloweendecorations #easydiy #fiveminutedecor #cutehalloweendecor #happyhalloween #Fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
I’m warming up since my previous picture! Wearing a thin, knit cardigan over a t-shirt is the perfect base for winter layering, it’s super easy to pack away if you get too hot and can add a pop of colour to a mostly neutral outfit. I like that this one from Old Navy is hip-length and form fitting which helps it layer easily under a blazer or wool coat. If you like to buy your jackets on the snug side, thin layers are best. Want a t-shirt to look more dressed up? Tuck it in (front only, side only or all the way) and try a belt, this will help define the waistline and make the contrast between the top and bottoms more pronounced. Full layering blog post coming soon! 📸 @megancameronphotography #layering #styletips #falllayering #winterlayering #hygge #canadianfashion #canadianstyle #ottawablogger #613style #613blogger #ottawastyle #styleover30 #over30style #nomakeup

I can hardly wait to eat ALL the Halloween candy tomorrow, but for now I’ve got oatmeal that tastes like candy so I guess it’ll have to do 🍽😍

Why am I standing in a t-shirt when it’s clearly cold out? Two reasons, first is that I love this shirt by @bbxcollection . Second, I’m about to “layer up”! Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post with tips for layering this fall/winter. What’s your go-to layering piece?

Welcome back to campus Ravens!! How was everyone’s reading week?
Happy Saturday friends! Been a bit quiet the last two days but killed cardio and still doing my thang. I did get all caught up in that mood I get in the fall and spring where I feel the house needs a good clean, but end up making an even bigger mess as I spontaneously decide to purge all the things! Anyone else get into that mode this time of year?💁🏻‍♀️ * Started in my boys room, and have done a huge toy purge, even got rid of some of the storage furniture so as to keep things lighter and clutter free from now on. Then I of course had to get into my girls room too. The middle floor of this house feels sooo much lighter now. * My plan is to have the kids come along as we donate to several different causes around Ottawa that help families in need. Hoping that this activity as well as some volunteering over the holiday season will instil good values for my littles. * I do love a good organize sesh! You can see my girls room before the purge in the blog archives.

Happy Fri-YAY! I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of October and this is my first official pumpkin recipe. I need to bake up some cookies later now that I’ve opened the can (yep, I used to roast my own but hey, a can is super fast). Pumpkin oat cakes with ginger, cardamom and nutmeg. Ended up adding a dollop of Balkan yogurt which was the perfect pairing. 🎃#pancakelove #pancakefriday #proteinpancake #breakfast #cleaneats #madewithlove #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative

Trying to squeeze just one more wear out of my @evatrends1 blue gingham before I pack it away till spring. Or maybe I will figure out a way to make this an all-season piece totally doable right?

Currently sitting in the salon getting my hair did. My week in DIY will be finishing Halloween costumes, but thinking of these adorable story stones I did a few weeks back. The story ideas ar endless as the kiddos play with these. I love that they are still happily in rotation. I know there is #slowfashion , but did you know that there is a #slowtoymovement too? I’m all for this kind of reusing and repurposing and play that hinges on the use of imagination. Check out the blog archives for this DIY project and further thoughts.

Reminiscing about this amazing dinner from a few weeks ago. What’s your favourite meal from the caf?
Sensory bins = moms sneaky way to give herself a few minutes of me time while the kids are involved in a tactile form of learning. Right after this we turned this rice to rainbow rice ( idea thanks to @louisepentland vlog ). Ever since i decided to stay at home for my children’s early years, I have been trying to define my role in a way that makes me feel fulfilled. My end game was to launch my own business and return to my own calling rather than the office job I had before. I feel lucky to have had the chance to do this, and it hasn’t been easy on so many levels. My best moments come when I am truly focusing on my own needs rather than being hyper focused on my children... that sounds harsh but i mean that rather than playing second fiddle to my kids, I have made sure that my soul is sated. If I am unhappy and feeling stuck, then what kind of mom am I being to my kids? I don’t think any human is made to wander mindlessly through the rote daily tasks without inspirational spark. Life is meant to be lived in colour and with wonder. I am a stay at home mom, turned work at home mom. The terminology is tricky at best with the subset of humans that lean out to reestablish a different dynamic within their lives. The numbers of parents choosing to take this route to child rearing has been on the rise in the last decade, proving millennials to be far more traditional and yet completely frontier-ing a new way to portion a life-work balance. After five years of forging through this role, I’ve found a few key ways to make sure you remain a flourishing individual as well as be the best mom you can be. Find my 10 must do items for the at home parent sector over on my blog.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! 🍂 What I am most grateful for is everyone in my life, my family, my boyfriend and all of my friends. Without them I don’t know what I would be doing without their inspiration and their continuation to motivate me to follow my dreams. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving day! Stay warm, and eat lots of turkey 🦃

How cute are these fairy wands and sticks I made with the kids? It’s been a crafty sort of mood around here this week, and music.... with my boy’s birthday coming up as well as mine, I’m drowning in crafty goodness. Someone please keep me accountable for workouts cuz I’m failing this week. But these little wands and another fantastic DIY toy is up on the blog this week. Thanksgiving is making me want to create toys that keep my kids honest rather than wanting new and exciting toy store buys. The kids love them so much they kept stealing them while I was trying to photograph them!

I won’t ever call myself a ‘bright and airy’ or ‘dark and moody’ photographer. I hit both sides of it and the truth is, my style varies based on the session. What I will call myself is an artist. I am a film photographer, and I embrace every bit of that. I will expose and edit based on the specific frame. I won’t define myself as consistently bright, because sometimes I just know the frame would have more impact by focusing on the shadows. I capture light, and I create art. #film is the perfect medium for me 💕
