Meet YouTube sensation WithWendy - our newest PURA Muse. Born in Calgary and now residing in Toronto, Wendy is best known for her ‘Can She DIY it?’ sewing videos on YouTube. Wendy is also an upcycling genius and her YouTube channel has garnered a following of over 1.4 million subscribers. Down to earth and instantly relatable, Wendy’s creativity will capture your imagination and we were fortunate enough to chat about her creative journey, the importance of self-care (especially since having a baby mid-pandemic), and where she finds inspiration.
At PURA, we were first drawn to Mamas for Mamas through our involvement in last summer’s Jilly Box. As mother’s ourselves, we were immediately inspired by their mission - to create a community without barriers to raising happy, healthy children. Founded in Kelowna, it is only recently that an Edmonton chapter was formed. Once we met Marcie from Mamas For Mamas Edmonton, we knew that we had to introduce her to YOU - our PURA community. May you be inspired and moved by Marcie’s enthusiasm, dedication, and how she was able to channel a time of personal grief into a legacy of beauty and significance with Mamas for Mamas.
If you haven’t heard of dry brushing, it’s exactly as it sounds - stroking your skin with a dry, soft bristled brush specifically designed for this practice that dates back to ancient times. While there is some technique involved, it is a relatively simple step in your morning and/or evening routine that offers several health and wellness benefits. Followed by a refreshing shower and a luxurious PURA body moisturizer, dry brushing may turn out to be your favourite ritual to get you out of bed in the morning (besides coffee, of course!).
