The Official Fabulous Team

Jenifer Horvath, Founder and Editor

Jenifer is a mother of two little ones with the uncompromising need to get out of the house, meet new people and have fun. She approaches each day as an adventure and loves sharing. This zest for life has cumulated into CityandBaby.com where she celebrates Edmonton’s unique events, fun activities, great shopping, baby-friendly businesses and product must-haves from a mommy point of view. When not out-and-about Edmonton, you’ll find Jenifer drinking lattes; dancing up a storm; providing marketing consult; and, of course, playing with her daughters.

Kendall Barber, CityandDale.com

After six years on the west coast, Kendall traded the beach for the sunny skies of Edmonton, Alberta. Known for delighting in the good life and loving fashion, Kendall quickly identified the need to celebrate local Edmonton happenings, fashion and style. She began pouring her love for local boutiques, designers, food and events onto CityandDale.com. When Kendall’s not completely immersed in Edmonton’s style scene, you’ll catch her running in the river valley, sipping lattes with her man or jetting off for the weekend (hello: Barcelona, New York, Paris). She’s a big believer of traveling far and returning home to make Edmonton a great city.

We're Loved! 

Edmonton Sun journalist, Linda Hoang interviewed Jenifer about an upcoming Mommy Blogs event, where Jenifer will be a speaking. The article, Mommas' blogs are big business, mentions City and Baby and other great Edmonton mommy bloggers. (Published September 11, 2012.)

On Friday, May 18, 2012 local radio station 105.9 Shine FM gave City and Baby a completely unprompted call out. They said that City and Baby was THE go to site for moms with little ones. We're so honoured. Thank you!

On Monday, March 26, 2012 Edmonton 93.9 CBC Radio asked Jenifer to come in to the studio and share ideas on what to do in Edmonton over spring break. What a fun experience. Can't wait to do it again.

In September 2011, City and Baby was voted Alberta's Best Mama Blogger via Modern Mama's contest. We are tickled pink that our readers and fans took the time to vote for us. Thank you! 

We want to hear from you
