February 2009 marked the birth of the Northern Mama Blog and website. First conceived, by creator and writer Angela, as a personal blog promoting northern issues and other topics near and dear to her heart--eco-friendly living, life-long learning, and healthy parenting--it quickly evolved into much, much more. Northern Mama is now a blog which markets and promotes an eclectic mix of eco-friendly, socially responsible, and family friendly products with flair and creativity! Northern Mama is not chic, it's not a baby blog, nor a book blog but rather a regular Canadian woman's guide to the things she loves and knows others will too! ECLECTIC, FUNKY, and just a bit DIFFERENT Northern Mama is simply unique in it's variety and appeal.

In January 2010 Angela invited a new reviewer to the Northern Mama family. Nichole is another "Northern Mama" who like Angela lived in the arctic with her family for many years. Nichole brings a strong knowledge of family-friendly products to Northern Mama and critical eye to products we encounter!

From book reviews to snack promotions, clothing to entertainment, Northern Mama represents the average young family's need to spice up their lives and strive for a fun and healthy lifestyle. Northern Mama is the perfect venue for promoting the latest in family-focused products for the young and young at heart!

This is a fabulous and economical way to market and advertise your products to those who are actually out there purchasing...yes, mom and dad!! Northern Mama prides itself in honest review opinions.
