Why I love Pampers

So I know you hear me talk about diapers a lot, but honestly, being a mom means that diapers become a huge staple in your life.  Trust me on this, with a bad diaper, your day can be totally ruined.

Last week I was at an event with a bunch of kids and Livi and I were there for about three hours. I changed her before we left the house and generally don’t worry about her diaper again until we are home, or she poops. As we were gathering up the kids to take them home, I noticed friends sons diaper was literally the size of a balloon… I asked if he had pooped and she said no, but that this brand of diapers (not Pampers) always looked like that after a couple of hours. I couldn’t believe it. Livi’s has NEVER looked like that, and I’m thankful that Pampers is so absorbent. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable the poor little guy must have been!

Secondly, the smell. Ok this is probably going to sound weird to you, but the smell of Pampers diapers brings me back to my childhood. I used to make my mom buy me newborn Pampers diapers so I could put them on my dolls. The second I opened my first pack for Livi, the nostalgia of my childhood immediately rushed in and it was such a surreal moment to remember changing my dolls, as I was about to change my real baby. It was likely the hormones, but it brought tears to my eyes.

Thirdly, I love that I get to collect points and cash them in for goodies with the Pampers Rewards Program. I appreciate a company that gives back, and it makes me feel better to know that I’m earning rewards for something that I have to buy weekly. Plus, I feel super cool every time I scan a barcode.

Lastly, it makes life a breeze when I can directly auto ship my Pampers products from Amazon with their Subscribe & Save program. There is nothing worse than forgetting to get diapers and realizing you have none left after your baby has a blowout. With auto ship, they are delivered right to my door every month and that makes this momma a very happy camper.

It’s funny, as I sit here writing this, if you had asked me two years ago if I would truly LOVE a diaper, I would think you were crazy… haha how times have changed!!

What I Am Currently Doing Wednesdays!

Currently: Sitting on the couch in my new house

Wearing: Grey Sweats and my fav Marvel Comic Book Tshirt

Eating/Drinking: A Large Iced Coffee from Tim Horton’s, made with milk, and only 1 shot of base.  Any more base, and it feels like I am drinking straight syrup.

Plans for today: NOTHING. I have been shooting a movie and working long hours, so today I am going to enjoy doing nothing.

Currently Watching: Maury.  Don’t judge me.  I am super curious to see if this guy is the baby daddy.

Current Stress:  I have to go to the bathroom, but as stated earlier, super curious to see who the baby daddy is.

Melissa Nepton

Today, instead of posting a DIY tutorial, I am posting a review on one of my favourite Canadian designers.

I first heard about Melissa Nepton from Toronto Fashion Week, and quickly grew to love her modern take on the career woman’s clothing.  I was lucky enough to get the Spring 2015 Collection early, and was actually giddy checking out each item that I pulled from the box.

Melissa Nepton

1) Dress: Brigitte 2) Top: Sam Multi, Bottom: Nellie Blk 3) Dress: Lizzie 4) Dress: Henley 5) Dress: Scarlet Taupe 6) Top: Carmen, Bottom: Nellie Blk

Her designs are refreshing, exciting, and the best part is, they aren’t skintight (which is especially good if you’re going out for dinner. NO ONE wants to wear a tight dress while trying to enjoy a 4-course meal.  I want to eat my cheesecake in comfort).

Dress: Bea

Another killer aspect of this collection is that it’s totally universal and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.  This comes in handy when you don’t really know what “Business/Casual with a hint of country western, and a side of formal” means on an invite… (Trust me, I’ve seen that actual description. WTF).  Here in the post are some of my favourite looks, and if you want to order yours, go to: www.melissanepton.com.
