Welcome to my slice of heaven on the internet known as Nolie’s Place. My name is Nolie and I am your friendly sometimes opinionated Canadian blogger. I am also the proud mother to two wonderful boys.
My children are 9 and 5. Big brother (9) and Little Brother (5) like to keep me on my toes and give me a run for my money. You can find me sharing many stories about them and our lives as we live it one day at a time. Tobei and I have been together for 9 years and finally tied the knot in May of 2014.
To say Tobei and I have been through a lot is an understatement. I recently shared some of our journey in a post titled I walked out on Drew Dudley. I invite you to read that post. It is the rawest post I ever wrote and I almost didn’t publish it.
Most recently in August of 2016, our family got a little bigger when my mom moved in with us. Due to Fibromyalgia taking over her body she was no longer able to live on her own. I will say it is really nice having my mom living with us. She is more than just my mom, she is my best friend.
I have been blogging here for 8 years now and have experienced many wonderful things thanks to the blog. I was a community leader in 2012 at the best blogging conference north of the border known as Blissdom Canada. I have taken a blogging and social media internship by Susan and Janice of 5 Minutes for Mom which led to me working for them as their Virtual Assistant for 2 years. At the end of 2015 our family went through some difficult times and I basically took a 1 year hiatus from blogging. I am now coming back to the site for 2017.
I have been lucky to participate in great campaigns through Mom Central. For 2 years I was a proud KinderMom Ambassador and I was also a Sears Baby Room ambassador. For the past 3 years, I have been enjoying my time as a member of the Stream Team for Netflix Canada. I love being an ambassador for companies that my family love and uses on a daily basis.
I am always busy behind the scenes networking and looking to form amazing relationships with brands I love and 100% stand behind. If you see me posting about them here you can know they have my seal of approval.
If you are a brand reading this and think us working together may be a brilliant idea feel free to reach out to me via my contact page.
