heart and habit ABOUT BRANDY

My name is Brandy Mercredi, I live in Toronto, Ontario Canada with my lucky husband (zing) and two awesome little kids. I grew up in the Northern (also see: brrrrrr) most populated city in the world, Edmonton Alberta – but left the beautiful (but cold) city to pursue my big dreams of fashion. My then boyfriend (now husband) and I moved to Toronto, I studied (and graduated from) Fashion Design in college. After that I worked in product development and apparel design for some large Canadian brands, until Chris and I decided to make two miniature versions of our selves King and Harlow.

These days I spend my time practicing yoga (you’ll read a lot about that on the blog), spending as much time as possible with my family, managing our household, blogging (here and at Hello Bee) and working as an apparel consultant from home.



Heart + Habit is a lifestyle blog, focused on living life sweet, simple and stylishly. I started this here blog back in 2010, as an outlet for creativity and to share the things I love (basically the same reason the rest of the internet started). It’s gone through many changes over the years, a name change and a bunch of content shifts and bumps – it’s grown with me, with us. Sometimes this blog is about family and me as a mom, sometimes it’s about yoga or style. It’s simple, it’s real (sometimes a little raw, and almost always full of grammatical errors), it’s honest and hopefully no matter what it’s pretty sweet. Somewhere along the way (kidding, I know the specific date and time I just wanted to keep it cool) dreams started to come true and I began utilizing my skills and years of experience as an apparel designer/product developer to collaborate and create capsule collections for some really amazing dream brands. You can see our current collaborations here.
