Mrs. Jones’ 2nd List of Local Edmonton Mom Bloggers | 2017

Fellow Mamas, here it is.

My second (and just-as-fabulous) list of local Edmonton Mom Bloggers.

Check them out, give them a follow, pick a fave.

Last year, I published my first list of momma bloggers in Edmonton. Since then, I’ve found 18 more incredibly talented bloggers. These moms are not only sharing their own stories — they are lifting other mommas up as well. They deserve a huge shout-out. Let me know if I’ve missed any.

In no particular order…

1 | Mercedes Bender: Live It All In

There’s something special about Mercedes — she blogs about messy play and the importance of getting little hands into all sorts of muck and goop. Mercedes builds sensory play bins for preschoolers. They were a hit at Toddler Town at this year’s International Children’s Festival of the Arts. Her parenting perspective is unique, with two littles under 4 and one with special needs. Nothing can stop this mama.

2 | Nicky Pearson: This Mommy Rocks

It’s true, Nicky real does rock, literally and figuratively. She’s a local country music recording artist — with a single out on iTunes. I love watching her “Sofa Sessions” videos where she pairs up with other local artists and sings a duet. With two kids, she’s having a blast, posting all of her musical passions and memories on her blog.

3 | Amanda McMullan: Mz McMully in the Moment

Alright mommies — you need to know about Amanda. She’s a hair stylist, a makeup artist, and a seriously styled blogger that runs a beautiful Instagram account. I love her positive vibes and love for all things family, motherhood and fashion. She lives outside of Edmonton, but went to school here, loves the city, and comes to visit often. You’ve got to check out her hilarious and heartfelt stories.

4 | Stephanie: All About Ami

I just discovered Stephanie (thanks, Sarah!) and I’m so in love. She’s a mommy of two and a crochet and knitting guru right here in Edmonton, with a huge following. Stephanie creates modern designs and has worked hard over the years to build her blog. Her blog name “ami” comes from the word “amigurumi” which is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures (as per Wikipedia). So awesome.

I love, love, love Chelsey, the owner of Mommy Connections Edmonton North & St. Albert. Chelsey curates incredible 8-week programs for new moms and dads. She also blogs along the way, sharing honest reflections and awesome ideas and tips. Watch out for her sell-out “Just for Mom” Nights, too.  She’s created strong connections in Edmonton and I love her honest, real approach to mommyhood.

Liz is a brand new blogger — no website launched yet — but just you wait. She’s going to kill it. What I love about Liz is her story.

They are starting to grow a garden, raise animals and just welcome a fresh little baby to their human crew, as well.
