New Product Review Club Offer: OxiClean™ 4X Concentrated Extreme Power Crystals™ Dishwasher DetergentSponsored
Sometimes it feels like all everyone talks about is food. Which trendy diet are you following? Which superfood are you stockpiling, or which ingredient are you avoiding?
I love food. Like, adore
it. Give me some delish flourless chocolate cake
, crispy coconut chicken strips
, or Canadian Monterey Jack & Black Bean Empanadas
, and I'm a happy girl. Food is not the enemy! You with...

ChickAdvisor Editor's Choice Buying Guide: Top Ten Drugstore Cleansers
If just one more of my friends confesses to me that they don't wash their face before going to bed, I will seriously throw a fit. For me, skipping a cleansing routine means breakout city come morning, so I make sure to cleanse every single night before hitting the hay. A build up of oil, dirt, makeup and everything else the elements throw at you is never a good thing. Which is why today I am...
Cute April Showers Rain Gear
April Showers brings May Flowers; Is that how the rhyme goes? Well hopefully April Showers at least brings a little warmer weather. I cannot wait to wear my tall rain boots! A necessity for Spring fashion will always be super cute rain gear, I have to admit it's a lot more fun jumping in a puddle with my welly's than it is in my new flats. But wearing big rain boots or a rain coat does not...
Spring Beauty Pinspiration: Radiant Orchid Beauty Looks
I am extremely guilty of spending the majority of my free time on Pinterest. It is so addicting and has me planning everything from tonight's dinner to what my future house will look like. And yes, my boyfriend and family do think I'm crazy because of this. But it's super useful - especially for us beauty and fashion Chicks who are always looking for Pinspiration

Wine 101: How To Trick People Into Thinking You're an Expert
True story: My friend and I were in New York City and we went to a very expensive, fancy restaurant. The type of place where a man with a little broom comes around to wipe the crumbs off your table between every course. It was kind of a #treatyoself situation. We sat down and took a look at the wine list (cause that's what you do at fancy places) and everything seemed like gibberish. It may have...
Maybelline Make Up Artist Grace Lee Talks: The Number One Beauty Product You Need Next Season
About two weeks ago, the white tents were raised in downtown Toronto signalling the return of fashion week and of course, we got excited. When Maybelline invited us for a backstage sneak peek pre-show to see make up artist Grace Lee work her magic on the models, we jumped at the chance.
We also had the opportunity to ask Grace a few questions burning in our minds. Obviously I went...
Chicks Get Fit: 'Good Vibrations' at The Power Institute
This is a story about one Chick
getting jiggled, suctioned, and pummeled into sleekly-toned submission. And I liked it.
Have you ever seen those infomercials showing a person shaking viciously on a vibrating machine (while smiling obnoxiously), convinced they can lose up to 4 pant sizes in 10 minutes? For most of us, this probably comes off as being rather hokey. I suppose you can understand...
ChickAdvisor Editor's Choice Buying Guide: Top Ten Concealers
Ladies, I know my concealers. Having battled some pretty nasty skin issues in my teens (and then well into my adulthood), concealer was the first beauty product I got my hands on and would probably be number one desert island choice. Since I am a total expert on concealers, I thought I would round up my absolute top ten favourite concealers of all time. These range from full to sheer...
Tip Tuesday: Your Simple AM and PM Skincare Routines
My morning and night skincare routines used to be quite the process. Just read this article
from a few years back. Since then, I have been focusing on streamlining and simplifying. With a drawer full of half used products, I seriously needed to cut back. So I decided that my routine needed to fit into one clear travel bag and that all my products would be useful.
I now have my morning and...
