We are so excited to introduce our current crush: LouLou Lollipop Finery! We were able to bring in some of their beautiful necklaces, teethers, pacifier clips, and rattles for you and your babes this past July, but they sold out so quickly, that we didn't even have a chance to make a post about them!
Now back in-stock, their couture teething accessories are beyond cute, and just what you and your little one needs to help tackle this new phase of growth.
All of LouLou Lollipop's products are free from nasty chemicals and safe for you and baby:
Shop the new arrivals from LouLou Lollipop online or in-studio at Toronto Yoga Mamas in Toronto's Leslieville location, and read below to find out more about the Canadian twin sisters behind this amazing brand!
Loulou Lollipop is a Canadian company founded in 2015 by twin sisters Eleanor and Angel. It is a design oriented, colour loving and fun seeking company that focuses on high quality baby goods, teething jewelry and toys.
How they started?
Prior to starting Loulou Lollipop in 2015, Eleanor was a lead interior designer for a local Vancouver residential construction company. During her maternity leave after the birth of her daughter Kinsley, Eleanor received news that the company she worked for had gone bankrupt. This was the fateful push that she needed to start her own business, and Loulou Lollipop was born.
After a few months of market research, and sourcing bead samples from suppliers, Eleanor started making and selling teething jewelry to sell on Etsy. In April 2015, Loulou Lollipop opened with a few necklace and pacifier clip designs. These designs were well received by Etsy mothers and babies, and the brand has since grown to international acclaim. With their amazing growth Eleanor's twin sister Angel came on-board to handle all sales and marketing initiatives.
Fast forward to a year and half later, Loulou Lollipop is now in over 50 stores world-wide and have been featured in multiple magazines and press. It is also one of the fastest growing silicone teething accessories stores on Etsy with over 8000+ sales and 2000+ FIVE star reviews within ONE year. All of these are attributed to Eleanor's passion for fun, colourful designs, and her knack for creating eye catching colour combinations.
The Honest Leaf is a line of loose leaf wellness teas created by registered nutritionist, Shelby Kroach. Their goal is to provide our community with authentic blends that help to nourish and support a healthy mind and body.
The Honest Leaf story began in the winter of 2012 when Shelby put together holiday tea gift baskets for friends and family. Her mission was to give the gift of warmth and good health during the holiday season. In the months following, Shelby decided to take her passion for health and wellness and combine it with her love for tea. She created a line of wellness teas that specifically targeted various systems in the body, focusing on detoxification, digestion, relaxation, energy, balancing blood sugar, and immune health.
Each blend is carefully formulated in Toronto (yay local!!) with the finest all natural and organic herbs, spices and tea leaves. Shelby and her team believes in providing authentic flavours to our customers, and therefore do not add artificial ingredients into their blends. The Honest Leaf is all about simplicity, transparency and honesty.
As huge tea drinkers ourselves, we are hooked on The Honest Leaf's Tea. Not only does it help support your health goals, but with Shelby's specific blends, taste is not sacrificed! Welcome to your newest healthy addiction!!

Finding a Doula, in Toronto, shouldn't be hard. Let us help you make the doula hiring process easier, more transparent, and informative.
Here's what people have to say about our Doula care offerings:
"I felt extremely supported! I don't think my birth would have gone as well as it did without April. I loved the techniques she had for pain management such as the rebozo - I felt that that really helped. April was great at suggesting a change of position and she was very aware when I was getting tired and needed to change position. I trusted her opinion and felt like she cared all the way through. I loved that when I had the epidural she still stayed beside me and pressed on pressure points to help to stimulate contractions. She was great the whole way through!" ~ Claire
"I was not one of those people that knew I needed a doula...now I can't imagine having a baby without one. I met Thea as my prenatal yoga instructor. As she taught me about what a doula is, I knew she had to be present through my pregnancy and birth. I will never forget crying at our first meeting in a coffee shop with happiness and relief that someone was going to be there not only for me but also for my husband. Thea taught me everything I needed to know about labour. But more importantly she told me funny stories at 2 am to distract me from the intensifying contractions. I will be forever grateful for the knowledge and the giggles. The doulas at TYM are all special people who will become the support you need to grow a little person."~ Natalia
