Who is Mama Ash?

My name is Erica Ashmore. I started this blog in January 2010,  it all began with a recipe and a love to share information on everything and anything on baby and skin care. My background is esthetics and aromatherapy before motherhood took over. I’m a mum from Friendly Manitoba and now living in Toronto, Ontario.

What I blog about:
I love researching anything and everything to do with beauty products, fashion, food, tech, kitchen appliances, home, books, eco-friendly items and living an organic lifestyle.  As my blog is growing I’ve branched out to resort and local travel reviews and automobiles.

I’m here to provide an honest product review and if I love it I want you to have it as well. I also believe in being an informed consumer and with my blog, I can share with you only the best.

Companies have now approached me for reviewing their products. This blog is not about my trials and tribulations of parenthood but with twins in the making, who knows! I might make it more personal.  Shopping, travel, design and products are what I love and I hope to pass this on to you.  Even though products are sent for review most of the time I will share my honest experience with it.  Even if it’s not 100% awesome.

What are some brands I’ve worked with?
I’ve worked with fabulous companies reviewing strollers from Maclaren, Bugaboo, Stroll~Air, Mama’s & Papa’s, home products such as Dyson and Bissell to also taking part in marketing campaigns and ambassadorships and I am proud to be a Breville Canada Ambassador.  
I  have enjoyed working with toy brands such as LEGO, Tegu, Hasbro & Fisher Price.
I’ve also reviewed amazing baby carriers from Manduca, Tula, Beco, wraps from Easycare and Je Porte Mon Bebe and a few others to attending lots of media events from Weleda, Tommee Tippee, Bugaboo to Strauss Water just to name a few.
I am new to reviewing family-friendly restaurants such as Red Lobster and for Date Night,  Joey Restaurants sponsored our date
Recently we’ve reviewed hotels for Family Staycations such as Toronto Don Valley Hotel, Marriott hotel chains and The Gladstone Hotel for family-friendly brunch locations in the city.  While vacationing back home to Winnipeg I had the honour to review the new Hyundai SanteFe XL and for our stay, we also reviewed the Delta Winnipeg and at The Fairmont.  I am also pleased to have worked with Ford Canada!

With my love to find the next best thing, I can thank blogging for helping me along the way in creating my own business, Everything Mom and Baby Shop. Launched November 2010. bringing great hard to find baby carriers from Europe to Canada.

Catch me on CanadaAM.  I did a one on one with Ben Mulroney as we talked about “Back to School Apps. Aug.29, 2014
