Christmas is fast approaching.

Sure, it’s still just over five weeks away… But it’s amazing how fast those five weeks fly by once you start attending Christmas parties, festivities, outings and dinners…. or just start hitting the Bailey’s, like some…. (Seriously, Bailey’s and Egg Nog! It’s SO. FREAKING. GOOD!) Back on topic though. *cough* If you’re looking at ordering online, typically you’ll have to have that order in within the next week or two to ensure it’s here with the Christmas rush.

My goal for this Christmas season? Supporting local! Rather than buying from big box stores like Toys R Us and Walmart and the like, I am looking to do my shopping with local moms, shops and vendors. Sure, I will buy things from direct sales (Tupperware, Norwex, Stella and Dot, etc) but those reps for the company will benefit from it. Their families will benefit.

I’ve come to meet many wonderful ladies who help to support their families by doing sales. Some own their own business, some are a rep for direct sales and some make homemade items. Each of these ladies are amazing, awesome and so inspiring. And so totally in their element!

Over the course of the next week, I will be posting just a few of these awesome people you can order from. This is mainly New Westminster based, but if you are from out of the area, message them anyways! Maybe it’s possible to get it shipped directly to you or to be directed to a rep closer to you.

I’m looking forward to showcasing what these ladies have available! I’ve been browsing the goods there are some AMAZING things!


Keep an eye out this week for the posts – there’s anything from a knit cowl for your brand new baby nephew to beautiful jewelry for your grandma.
