2020 Vancouver Mom Top 30 Bloggers: 19-24
Alyssa Garrison, Random Acts of Pastel
Recently moved back to Vancouver, Alyssa is a professional dreamer with ever-changing pastel hair. She is a single mother by choice to her beautiful daughter, Summer Honey Rose and has shared every moment from her pregnancy, motherhood and everything in between. She created Random Acts of Pastel in 2013, a lifestyle blog that’s all about injecting colour, fun and magic into your everyday. RAOP has since evolved so that it’s not only a blog, but also a lifestyle brand that offers its own line of products and a creative agency. Alyssa has made a name for herself in the industry through her various platforms and colourful approach to fashion, beauty, motherhood and design.
Rachel, Ivory + Ebony
With a large coffee always in hand, Rachel of Ivory + Ebony is passionate about being authentic. You’ll see this young minimalist Mama boasting a stretch mark filled baby bump with pride alongside her two beautiful daughters. She also uses her social media and YouTube platform to promote supporting local and ethical brands. Above all, Rachel wants every woman of any age, figure, or stage in life to know they are worthy, strong, and beautiful.
Leslie Rossi, A Life Well Consumed
Leslie lives in Vancouver with her husband and new baby girl Rowan. Her first baby was her blog, A Life Well Consumed, which she started in 2014, and is filled with informative and fun content covering a variety of topics such as travel, beauty, wellness, food and lifestyle. Two years ago, she started a YouTube channel that features travel vlogs and beauty related content. Now as a new mother, she wants to create content that is relatable and share her experiences with her community.
Kali Desautels, Kali Desautels Reads
A professional writer and avid reader, Kali began blogging in 2017 as a platform to review books for friends and family. Eventually, KaliDesautelsReads evolved into the current iteration of #momlife, feminism, and mental health advocacy that it is today. Kali is the married mama of two kids, Shaeli (12), Liam (10), and a grumpy old cat named Timon. She and her husband Dave have made Maple Ridge their home for the past 12 years.
Christine is passionate about capturing moments in photos, celebrating the people she loves, making her home and garden a sanctuary and female empowerment. Her writing is a creative outlet to explore her shameful little secrets and to share the real stories behind the images. She recently even started posting less than “perfect” photos (gasp!) As the mom of three, she writes about parenting, rediscovering herself outside of motherhood, relationships, mental health, baking and other kick-ass women who are improving the world.
