Friday January 4, 2013 by Alexandra C.

Overindulging is a well known holiday tradition, right? Only, after the holidays are done, Present Alexandra is not such a fan of Past Alexandra's decision to observe that tradition. I don't know about you but I don't think I can look at another plate of turkey. Or mashed potatoes. Or stuffing. And please, don't even offer me any sort of chocolate or cake.

5 Bad Snacking Habits Made Healthy

Tuesday November 13, 2012 by Alexandra C.

You may already know that I'm a huge snack fiend. I love my munchies while at work, on the go or just lazing about at home. And speaking of lazing about, you may already know that when it comes to food and cooking, I can be a bit (ok, a lot) lazy when I'm making a meal for one. It's so easy for me to just go to the coffee shop, eat a processed snack or if I'm feeling especially...

1 Date Night Purse Essential to Pack (plus enter for a chance to win*!)

Monday November 12, 2012 by Ali


I am so glad my dating days are behind me.  Especially first dates!  Sure, they can be fun and exciting with all of the newness and anticipation, but they are also extremely nerve-wracking. Aside from the whole chemistry/compatibility question, there is the scariness of The First Kiss. 

Hollywood tells us that this moment is perfectly romantic (or sweetly awkward in the...

My Battle for a Better Nose (and why I'm on round 3)

Tuesday October 9, 2012

Third time's the charm, right?  I'm counting on that.

Plastic surgery isn't something I've ever really approved of because I've heard too many horror stories.  Generally, unless you have a horn growing out of your forehead or a nose that doubles your facial square footage, I think you should leave well enough alone.  And yet, here I am, about to embark on round 3...

Monday August 13, 2012 by ChickAdvisor Team


Summer fashion is all about colour, colour, colour!  Whether it's saturated hues or creamy pale shades, we love them all.  In fact, there’s only one part of our wardrobe and beauty routines where we shun colour, and that’s on our teeth.

It should come as no surprise that a whopping 90% of Canadians consider their smile to be an essential part of their overall appearance...

Mommy Memoirs: 5 Lies I Told Myself Before Becoming a Parent

Monday August 13, 2012 by Claire

I’m from the Midwest originally, so it wasn’t that unusual to the locals when I married relatively young and started a family fairly soon afterward.  It was a bit of a surprise to my uber cool friends who lived in Toronto, put their noses in the air, and cited lofty goals like Getting Financially Stable or Enjoying My Carefree Adult Years as reasons for delaying marriage...

Building Confidence for Bedwetters

Monday August 6, 2012 by Sandy Caetano


Being a child who wets their bed is no fun. It’s definitely not something he or she wants to share with anyone, especially not their friends.

Bedwetting, also known as enuresis, is a very common problem that many kids over the age of 4 must cope with. Even at such a young age something like this can really bring a child down; keeping them from wanting to go to sleepovers at friends’...

Fact or Fiction? 5 Truths about Nighttime Bedwetting Every Mom Should Know

Monday July 30, 2012 by Claire


When I was a little girl, playing make-believe mommy consisted of toting around a life-sized doll who made wee-wee in her overpriced diapers and cried in a garbled mechanical squeal for her pacifier (until my Dad removed the batteries and claimed that every store in the city was sold out of double AAs. Forever.)  Later, it was taking Crystal Barbie to sleepovers and trying on my...

At last you’ve made it through the challenges of potty training, happily tossing out plastic sheets and giving away the last of your diaper stockpile.  Your child is home free, isn’t he?
