Introducing out 2020 VM Top Blogger
Lucinda Chen, Live, Laugh, Luci
Lucinda (aka Luci) is a mother to two boys under two. She started her Instagram blog: @livelaughluci as a way to practice vulnerability. As soon as she focused more on speaking her truth, about Motherhood, she’s built amazing friendships with other Mama’s who find her blog to be: real, honest, funny and relatable. Let’s just say it’s not the typical IG feed out there. Luci knows that being a mom is a high pressured role to take on. Therefore, she continues to blog so that others don’t ever have to feel scared or alone in this journey we call: motherhood.
My heart is so full of GRATITUDE to be the 2020 Vancouver Mom Top Blogger! When I actively started speaking my truth about Motherhood… I never imagined being recognized alongside such a strong group of inspiring mama’s in my city. One of my greatest accomplishments in life is becoming a mom to my two boys. Because of them, they’ve inspired me to share the good, bad, messy and ugly. My main intention in starting my IG blog was to create a community amongst other mom’s so we could all support each other in our journeys. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who’s given me unconditional love and support through my blog. Allowing me to share my life, without judgement, has truly helped me build everlasting relationships with my fellow Mom’s worldwide. I look forward to meeting and celebrating with my new VMTOP30 tribe!
2020 VM Top Blogger Runners Up
We also tip our hat the following women for their incredible work rallying their communities and creating compelling stories and sharing important information for other mothers on their blogs. Congrats!
Katie Jameson, Life, Love, Loss
After the loss of her first son, Katie spent years feeling broken and lost, never knowing how to to “fix” the crack in her heart. She began writing her way through grief, and eventually discovered that sharing about hardships was a way to encourage healing. On her blog, she discusses what grief truly looks and feels like, while also sharing the hilarity of raising three young kids aged four and under. Her space is a safe place where mom’s of all kinds can relate, grieving hearts can settle, and those who haven’t walked in her shoes can learn. Encouraging openness and kindness across the board, Katie has dedicated herself to offering perspective to broken hearts of all kinds.
Allison Pettit, Mom of Threegio
Allison Pettit is a mom of three under three, including ten-month old twins. While maintaining a very real, raw and blunt outlook, her blog covers relatable topics and stigmas around motherhood and parenting with a hilarious twist. Her philosophy: Parent like our parents did, and trust your gut! She’s passionate about her career and family, and has been known to enjoy a glass (or three) of Pinot Grigio while keeping her wit and sarcasm at an all-time high.
