New ChickAdvisor Opportunity: Eucerin Review Challenge

Monday March 21, 2016 by Claire


When we were teenagers, we chose body care products based on fragrance and which celebrity endorsed it on TV. Of course, I was from the generation that thought getting a sunburn in early spring was the best way to get a solid tan base for later in the season. Higher reasoning was reserved for such complexities as how to get a guy to ask you out without having to openly tell him you liked...

Wednesday March 2, 2016 by Claire


UPDATE: this Review Challenge is now closed. See the list of winners at the bottom of this article!

NIVEA has been part of my life for almost as long as I can remember. As I child I was always fascinated by the classic blue tins of NIVEA Creme my mother and aunts kept stashed in their purses and on their bedside tables (and they still do, by the way). I would sneak up, open the lid...

Nouvelle opportunité: Grand défi McCain

Monday January 25, 2016 by Claire

Read this article in English

J'adore les émissions de télé-réalité culinaires. Au point où ma famille s'indigne de l'espace que j'utilise sur notre enregistreur vidéo, ne laissant aucune place pour les séries d'ado ou les documentaires technos!

Pour ma défense, toutes les émissions enregistrées me donnent l'occasion d'apprendre plusieurs techniques et astuces culinaires qui...

UPDATE: this opportunity is now closed. See our full list of winners below!

I love food reality TV. My family gets frustrated with the amount of space I claim on our DVR. No room for teen dramedies or techie documentaries - ha!

I defend this hogging of the DVR by pointing out how many great tips I have gotten out of these cooking show marathons....

New Product Review Club Offer: Dream™ Non-Dairy Beverages

Monday November 16, 2015 by Claire


I am a milk-and-cookies kind of mom. And sometimes I even share those cookies with my children.

Unfortunately, since having my youngest son I have become lactose intolerant! Thankfully I'm able to enjoy my favourite cheeses, but regular milk as a beverage or in my morning cereal is no longer an option.

When I first started drinking non-dairy alternatives years ago, I was not really excited...

New Product Review Club Opportunity: Nestlé Good Start Infant Formula

Monday November 9, 2015 by Claire


Becoming a parent comes with as many unknowns as it does preconceptions about what you should or should not do. Heaven forbid you should buy the wrong stroller or forget to put them on a prestigious preschool's waiting list!

I have three kids, and while I experienced the biggest learning curve with my first child, #2 and #3 proved to me that each baby is different and the knowledge I...

Put your hand up if you've avoided gels, acrylics, or other nail treatments because of concerns you have about your nail health.  I'll join you!

Yes, I am a specialty nail treatment virgin because I've heard too many stories of weakened, flaking nails that look absolutely awful when the polish comes off. My nails aren't the strongest to begin with so I have always chosen simple...

My kids have me on the run. 

I try to maintain some sanity by limiting the activities to one at a time: basketball during winter, soccer in spring, and swimming lessons for a few weeks in summer. However, I have THREE children and rarely do their commitments sync up for optimal scheduling. We're on the go constantly, so I need a stash of...

When you become a parent, nothing is more important than giving your baby the best possible care. Suddenly we look much more critically at our kitchen pantries and cleaning supplies than when we were carefree students and young professionals!

When my first child was born, organic food was just starting to break into the mainstream but was not...
