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...

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’...

Monday July 30, 2012 by Claire

I’m a mom of 3 and work full-time.  Between soccer practices, school events, birthday parties, and tight work deadlines, my motto has to be “Work Hard And Play Hard”.  Especially when 3 teachers from 2 different schools call within the space of 15 minutes asking me to pick up a sick kid from the nurse’s office. 

Yup, some might dub me a ‘Supermom’ but you should know by...

You can spot me by my: blonde hair, pale skin, red lips, matching bike, and uniform of oversized Breton stripe tops with straight-leg jeans.
