Thanks to everyone who nominated their favourite Vancouver mom blog for our 10th annual Vancouver Mom Top 30 Blogger 2019 search. You came through with dozens of nominations, telling us about new and interesting Metro Vancouver mom bloggers to fete at our annual party (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, motivate, take killer Instagrams, sell products, eat, write and share it all with us through their blogs and social feeds.
Tickets Available: Leading Moms + VM Top 30
Join us on Wednesday, May 29 as we celebrate Vancouver women and their storytelling – now two events in one. Conveniently scheduled one after each other, head straight after work and attend one or both for an evening just for you and your friends.
This week we’re presenting the talented 2019 Top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers, in no particular order. Today we share our final group of six.
2019 Vancouver Mom Top Bloggers 25-30
Avy Randhawa Oberoi
Avy Randhawa Oberoi has lived in Metro Vancouver most of her adult life. After the birth of her daughter, Opal, she connected with the city on a whole new level as she explored it through the lens of a new mama. Her Instagram blog and Youtube vlog are not just creative outlets but spaces where she represents motherhood in a personal, unique and multicultural way, that is true to Vancouver.
Britt Paley, Coco & Be
Britt Paley is mom to her 2-year-old son Charles, a business owner with her soon-to-be husband and creator of her blog, Coco & Be. Britt started her blog just over a year ago as a way to have a creative outlet and still be a full-time “work from home” mom. Her blog showcases her journey through motherhood as a young mother with lots of wedding inspiration for her upcoming big day, recipes and reviews of her family’s favourites! Britt and her small family of three moved from Newfoundland (although, Britt is a West Coast born girl) and now reside in North Burnaby. In her spare time, you can find her in the gym, baking, drinking wine with her girlfriends and exploring all over the country with her family.

Nicole is a full-time mom to one Tasmanian toddler (he runs her life as kids do) and runs a blogging and social media management business out of her home in Kitsilano. Always a blogger, Nicole began sharing her experience with pregnancy, motherhood (the good, bad, and ugly cry moments) and every real moment in between. Sharing those moments started as a personal outlet, but now? She’s using her ability to reach women world-wide to inspire them to know how amazing they truly are, and how imperfectly perfect being a mom in the 21st century can be. Join the #MotherhoodLikeWhoa shoutouts on Instagram @nicole.britton, so you too can get all the support you need through the highs and lows of everyday mom life.
Areta Wong, Foodgressing
Areta Wong is a food, travel and lifestyle blogger based in Vancouver. Born and raised in Richmond, her foodie background started with her grand-father and father both owning and running restaurant businesses in Canada in the 1970s and 80s. Areta’s blog highlights focuses on her food and travel adventures along with recommendations on where to eat, travel tips, and local events. She currently lives in Vancouver with her husband, son and dog.
Brandie Sanderson, Mom in Vanhattan
Brandie Sanderson lives in Vancouver in a little townhouse on the mountain with her husband and three boys Jaxon, Luke and Leo. She has been running Brandie Coe photography since 2011 when her first son was born. A Martha Stewart fan since she was young, she always had a knack for DIY, styling, decorating and baking. In fact, she completely redecorated her parents living room, hiding the accents she didn’t like, putting her parents paper clutter in drawers and moving her bedroom furniture around in the middle of the night. Three boys later, she started a space on the Web separate from her photography business to share her party DIY, décor and parenting tips. And so in 2016 Mom in Vanhattan was born!
Sam Chardin moved to Vancouver with her partner in 2014 and since then has become chair of their daughters’ PAC, runs a Skeptics in the Pub chapter, sings in MomChoir, performs in operas, writes novels, works as a voice-over artist, and mentors fellow creatives. Sam has lived in seven countries, three provinces, and five US states, and thinks Canada is the best place to be a mom.
