Hello, my name is Justine Summers

Hi There! 
Thank you for visiting The Summers Life blog. I am full time stay at home mom to two (soon to be three) babies and a at home childcare provider living in Vancouver, Canada.

My passions are making crafts, sewing clothing/costumes and trying to figure out how things work, all the whilst trying to practice a more sustainable lifestyle with the kids. 
This blog is about those adventures we get up to and any little tips I can give along the way to hopefully enlighten like minded individuals.

I first studied product design in high school and fell in love with the whole process of how products came about. After obtaining my BA in product design, I entered the working world in Hong Kong where I found myself in the fashion industry. This prompted me to dive into another year of studying, for fashion. Thus my love for technical design and fashion came together. 
After my maternity leave ended, I was approached by one of the top baby stores in Vancouver and was asked to join their team. For the next 3 years I was able to explore and try all the new and exciting baby products available on the market! Helping new parents narrow down products that would best suit their needs.

We are also a family who love to travel and wish to do so more! Here you will find a mixture of activities, travel, health and fashion inspiration with the occasional gentle parental guidance (read my experience) or just something different and fun to read!
