New Product Review Club Offer: CeraVe® Facial Moisturizing Lotions

Monday March 24, 2014 by Claire


Skin care is always a bit of a battle for me. I try to keep up with a regimen of regular exfoliation, using toner (when I remember) and always - always - wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF. Two of my New Year's Resolutions are to drink more water and cut back on sugar, both for general health and to stay ahead of the curve with my combination skin.

And this is kind of working. Blemishes...

Sun Smart Eye Care Tips for Fall & Winter

Tuesday November 26, 2013 by Claire

Like many people, I wasn't very sun smart in my younger years. Back then, having strongly defined tan lines was a proud testimonial to hours logged basting ourselves in baby oil and lying on the pool lounger all summer long. Maybe even a good base burn to start the sunbathing season? Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Obviously, times have changed. We now recognize the importance of sun safety year-round,...

New Product Review Club Opportunity: Kellogg's Special K® Popcorn Chips

Tuesday September 24, 2013 by Claire


We're all watching our waistlines these days but don't you hate when it interferes with life? The holidays, Hockey Night In Canada, and the Winter Olympics are all just around the corner and this means food. Lots of food, especially when friends and family are around.

For me, this is a daily challenge. As a mom of three, I cook every day and constantly have to make sensible choices...

I'm psyching myself up this morning to share an embarrassing little secret with you all. I didn't think that having a couple of kids and thereby giving up all rights to personal privacy would leave any room for embarrassment, but this is "one of those things" my mother never talked about - and I wish she had.

Girlfriends, I'm talking about...

New Product Review Club Offer: Quaker Harvest Crunch Quinoa Bars

Friday August 9, 2013 by Claire


When I was a teen, "smart snacking" usually meant finding the secret potato chip stash and chowing down as quickly as possible before my three siblings noticed and claimed their share.  

These days, now that I'm lacking a teen's hyper metabolism and being a mom of school-aged children, "smart snacking" means finding wholesome options that everyone in the family will enjoy. And...

Devenir maman m’a donné une nouvelle perspective sur les « affaires » reliées au petit coin. Et je me rends compte que je ne suis pas seule! Combien de bébés voient leur vie étalée sur Facebook et réduite à un commentaire tel que : « Devinez combien de cache-couches Léo a souillé aujourd’hui? » ou « Gabrielle à fait un...

Becoming a Mom gave me a new perspective on Bathroom Business. And I'm not alone: I've been noticing how many babies' lives are chronicled almost exclusively via Facebook posts like "Guess how many undershirts Billy went through today?" or "Jenna just made #2 on the potty for the first time! [insert poopy pic]" (It's T.M.I., people, and yes, I...
