Did you think I was going to skip gift guides this year? I thought so too, but then I was able to curate them on my phone while I cradled Emily – because there is only so much Netflix one can watch in one sitting. […]

MEJURI HEY CLAIRE EDGED JEWELRY HELLONANCE LIFESTYLE BLOG VANCOUVER

I was super excited to hear about Heyclaire’s collaboration with Mejuri. I am one of her Day One followers. Claire describes her everyday jewelry like her “favorite pair of jeans. Not a lot of fuss, classic with a twist, and they need to be quality because, let’s be honest, I rarely take them off.” I couldn’t agree more.

 

Even though this season is all about big, bold, asymmetrical earrings (as seen on Aimee Song and on runways at Paris Fashion Week), I still love the classics. This minimalistic jewelry collection of yellow gold and silver is everything.

Hey Claire’s jewelry collection is called Edged. It comes in vermeil, solid gold and sterling silver. I love this edged pinky ring in solid yellow gold. Custom engraving is optional and it is made in 14k solid gold with a band thickness of 1.4mm and face thickness of 3mm. I love the sides, vertices, polygons and geometric angles while embracing a delicate side of fine jewelry and femininity.

I also got the Edged Hoops in gold vermeil. I love I can wear these either alone or with my diamond studs. I love how versatile and minimal they are while still being luxurious. These hoops are made in gold vermeil in 18k gold layer on sterling silver. 13mm in diameter.

WHAT’S IN MY GYM BAG | ESSENTIALS

When I feel like my 10 minute fitness commitment just isn’t going to cut it for the day, I know I need a good sweat! I am slowly getting back into the grind and it is hard AF and I’m not even going to lie about it. Life after having a baby is challenging. There is always an excuse available for procrastinating: too tired, too busy, too hungry, baby is fussing, baby is sleeping. But I know I need to get back into shape in order to keep up with baby and life itself. So I took an inventory of what was in my previous gym bag and what’s in my gym bag now – essentials. only.

I use a 18L backpack (also available in 24L) from Ryu Apparel. I love the minimal and modern sleek design and their quick access compartments: drop front design opens for easy packing, organizing and accessing your gear. It is hard wearing and durable that keeps it’s unique shape whether empty or full.

My makeup bag is from Lululemon. “Sweaty or Not Kit” is perfect for carrying sweaty gear and shower essentials. I also carry wet wipes, extra elastics, hair band and travel size toiletry set (shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion) and BB Cream. Don’t feel like washing your hair? A little bit of dry shampoo goes a long way! And I always keep my wireless earbud headphones with a built in heartrate monitor inside my makeup bag (otherwise I will lose them).

 

I love my Ryu Quick Pack for keeping my gym bag essentials in place. So there you have it! These are the things I keep in my workout bag. Of course, I usually have a bottle of water and a few granola bars or almonds too! So what’s in YOUR gym bag? Let me know below!

Exclusive First Look at the New Ergobaby Omni 360 Baby Carrier

Exclusive First Look at the New Ergobaby Omni 360 Baby Carrier

Babies fuss less when held close to you! Parents who love to wear their babies can get excited for going hands free! Finding the best newborn baby carrier can be difficult when it comes to babywearing products. The Ergobaby just released their best all-in-one carrier – the Ergobaby Omni 360. I am so excited to try the product before it hits the market!

This carrier ($180 USD / $234 CAD) is designed with comfort and convenience of the baby and the parent in mind. It is versatile and offers multiple carry positions: forward facing , facing you, hip and back once baby can sit up on her own. There is head support for babies 0-4 months and also a privacy hood (UPF 50+).

The Ergobaby Omni 360 carrier features lumbar support, extra cushioned crossable should straps and holds baby in a hip healthy froggy M shape position at all stages. I used Epidural anesthesia during labor. After birth, I feel my back is a lot weaker and it is so important for me to protect and prevent back injuries!

The Omni 360 Baby Carrier has been acknowledged as a “hip healthy” product by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.

I love the idea that the Omni 360 carrier grows with your baby from birth (min 7 lbs and up to 33 lbs). There is no need to purchase an adapter to fit your infant child in the carrier.

Simply adjust the velcro seat tabs to your baby’s height and weight. Position the head and neck support according to baby’s age and activity.

I like babywearing not only when I go out but also when I’m in the house. Being a new mom is hard. Before getting a baby carrier, Baby would fuss and cling to me all day long. She would demand to sleep on my chest and I would be immobilized for hours (I watched 5 seasons of Orange is the New Black in two weeks). The carrier has helped me gained some sanity and balance some free time!

 

Ergobaby Omni 360 Features

  • Newborn ready
  • Lumbar support
  • Crossable shoulder straps
  • Baby Privacy Hood with UPD 50+
  • Ergonomic in all positions (M-Position)
  • Detachable Pouch

 

Benefits of Using a Baby Carrier

  • Ergonomic for mom and baby
  • Encourage bonding with baby
  • Hands free to do things
  • Less Crying
  • Close enough to kiss
  • Babies learn more as they intimately participates in parents activities
  • Working out (yoga or low-impact)
  • Going out for walks and hikes

The carrier comes with a detachable storage pouch. Carrying a purse is not always ideal with baby. I traded in my Louis Vuitton to a card holder. The storage pouch fits my keys, Iphone 6s Plus, compact camera, card holder and lipstick.

 

The carrier is available in four different colors: Pure Black, Pearl Grey (featured in this post), Khaki Green and Midnight Blue.

Overall, I like the how easy to use the Omni 360 is. My Little One sleeps so peaceful when she’s in the carrier. I can be vacuuming, washing dishes or going for a walk and she would be sleeping like a little angel.

 

Where to Purchase

The Ergobaby Omni 360 can be purchased online from Ergobaby, Ergobaby Canada, and Amazon
