The nominations are in! Thanks to everyone who nominated their favourite Vancouver mom blog for our 8th annual Top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers contest. You came through with dozens of nominations, telling us about some new and interesting Metro Vancouver mom bloggers to fete at our annual gala (and online). We visited the blogs, reviewed them, and narrowed with great difficulty our list down to just 30. We’re showcasing moms who care, create, bake, take killer Instagrams, sell products, write and share it all with us through their blogs and social feeds. This week we’re presenting the talented 2017 Top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers, in no particular order. Today we share our second group of six.

Olivia Lasting, This West Coast Mommy
Olivia is a social worker, advocate, wife, mother, and the blogger behind This West Coast Mommy. When the kids came along, she temporarily put her career on hold to focus on raising kind, happy, healthy, and adventurous children. Becoming a mother to two feisty girls has been both the greatest and most challenging work of her life, as well as the inspiration for starting her blog and living life a little greener every day. When she’s not taking photographs of her kids and the beautiful natural scenery surrounding us, you can find her experimenting in the kitchen, ordering sushi rolls, or buried in a good sci fi novel.
Emelia Symington Fedy, Trying to be Good
Liz Squires of The Loud Introvert
Leah Price of Enough Stuff – My Life with Less
Master Recycler (yes, it’s a thing!), artist and teacher – I blog about my passions: sewing, gardening, my children, a zero-waste lifestyle and making something from nothing. I help run Our Social Fabric – a Vancouver textile recycling initiative and Come to My Yard – an accessible, community-building vegetable garden in collaboration with the Vancouver Arts Colloquium. I host an art show of pieces made entirely from an on-going family waste audit, teach zero waste sewing lessons and facilitate an adapted Home Learning program for my daughter.
