Canadian Moms of Instagram
In light of Mother's Day fast approaching (we've got you covered, in case you forgot - Use code: MomDad20 to receive 20% off your Mom or Dad crewneck order), we wanted to recognize 10 great Canadian moms with admirable Grams. We know that moms wear many hats and to us, these moms have hustle and style. We admire the positive "influence" they have on our world and their effort to balance entrepreneurship amid the throws of raising kids.
Sasha Exeter, Lifestyle Blogger
@sashaexeter - Sasha is a mom of one from Toronto. Her lifestyle blog, So Sasha chronicles the daily tasks and luxuries of being a full-time mom and fashonova. She's into the world of fashion, wellness, beauty, and baby, and we're into everything she posts about her daughter, Maxwell.
Robin, Teacher and Photographer
@twentyventi - Robin is a mom of one (soon-to-be mom of two) from "Toronto-ish", according to her Insta bio. Follow Robin, her daughter Ramona, and all the little critters in her photos that remind us of life's simple joys: linen stripes, blueberries, felted ornaments, and bonnet hats straight out of Where the Wild Things Are.
Jessica Mulroney, Fashion Stylist and Founder of The Shoebox Project
@jessicamulroney – Take cues from Jessica Mulroney, the mom who does it all. Whether she's working with Canadian designers, organizing photoshoots, styling brides, or guest appearing on City Line, she's also bound to share funny clips of her life behind the scenes with three kids.
Alexandra Ambroise, Lifestyle Blogger
Sina Duvinage, Lifestyle Blogger
@happygreylucky - We know what you're thinking, how do you get a toddler to stand so still and smile for the camera? Sina's answer? Sometimes, you can't. We love the creativity behind her Family on Chairs series and all of the outfits she coordinates with her husband and two kids, and we think you will, too.
Andrea, Healthy Living Influencer
@earthyandy - Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Andrea moved to Hawaii where she settled down and raised two boys. Surf days at the beach followed by homemade, island-fresh fruit sorbet sounds like a bit of a dream, but we're here for it nonetheless. Take us to Oahu.
Afiya Francisco, Style Expert
@thestylehouse - Afiya Francisco is the mom of two and fashion guru behind @thestylehouse. We've been a following her style notes and Instagram aesthetic for years, and we know that if there's a white brick wall or scenic backdrop out there, Afiya will find it.
Devin Connell, Founder of Crumb
@devinconnelldiary - House & Home nails it with, "Devin Connell wears many hats: co-owner of Delica Kitchen, mother of two young boys, and founder of the new website Crumb." Moms like Devin who hustle as entrepreneurs inspire us. We eat from Delica Kitchen on the daily and can vouch for the Detox Chicken Noodle Soup.
Nicole Lewis, Photographer
@blondecoffeebean - Nicole Lewis is the photographer and mom of two behind the @blondecoffeebean lens. If there's anyone who can make raising kids look like it does in fairytales, it's her. Of course, every fairytale should be chased with a good dose of reality and yes, that might mean simultaneously juggling full laundry baskets and full inboxes.
Sophie Trudeau, Canada's First Lady
@sophiegregoiretrudeau - It's cool to know that while we call Sophie Trudeau our First Lady and style icon, there are three Canadian kids out there who call her Mom.
Julie Brown, Province of Canada Co-Founder
@juliedbrown - Julie is the other half to Province of Canada. She and her husband Jeremy power this brand and use their daily lives to inspire their designs and product stories. "I choose to design quality Home and apparel products with 100 percent cotton because that's what I would choose to wrap my child in. There's no feeling like it." - Julie Brown
