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...

Le jour où l’on devient parent, soudainement rien n’est plus important que de donner les meilleurs soins à notre bébé. Du jour au lendemain on devient plus pointilleux qu’à l’époque où on était de simples étudiants, voire de jeunes professionnels, à l’égard des produits de nettoyage et des aliments qui se retrouvent dans notre...

New Product Review Club Offer: Schlage Touch™

Monday May 11, 2015 by Claire

Everything is digital-this and smart-that, but I guess we knew it was coming. 2015 is the year of the flying DeLorean* after all, and ever since I discovered that my kids have never seen a rotary telephone or heard a phone's busy signal in their entire lives, I realized that the times have truly changed.

(*Did I just betray my age? Bonus points if you have a hot clue where that reference...

Exclusive ChickAdvisor Event: Master Class with Canadian Cheese

Tuesday May 5, 2015 by Claire


UPDATECheck out our #RECAP video on Youtube here!

My heart beats a little faster every time I walk into the specialty cheese aisle at the supermarket.

During my last pregnancy, I was briefly lactose-intolerant even though I craved cheese like I'd never ever see it again. Creamy Bries, spicy Jalapeno-Havartis, and smoky Goudas were all I could think about. Thankfully, after my son was...

New Product Review Club Offer: Vichy ProEVEN™ Advanced Daily Dark Spot Corrector

Monday March 23, 2015 by Claire

It all started off as a Harry Potter-esque smudge descending from just left of my widow's peak. Being the middle of summer, I blamed it on a sloppy application of facial sunscreen resulting in a unique sunburn. A little BB cream was more than sufficient to cover it up at first.

After a while, my distinctive lightning bolt became more pronounced and I started to see a few new darkish spots...

11 Tips to Help You Get Pregnant Faster

Tuesday February 10, 2015 by Claire

Trying to conceive (or "TTC" as parents-to-be call it) is not just a matter of making love every other day and happily finding a plus sign on the pee stick at the end of the month. According to one study, about 20% of moms-in-waiting are still unsuccessful after six months of trying. Speaking from personal experience, this can be very demoralizing.

So what can you do to increase your chances of...
