Let's start off by saying that we're not suggesting a return to the days of forcing young girls to spend hours learning needlework instead of studying chemistry and playing competitive sports.

However, aside from a mandatory semester or two in Home Economics class most of us are pretty useless when it comes to a needle and thread. In fairness, we're also too busy to learn this basic skill...

I am not at all ready for my boy to start school next month. I’m not talking about procrastinating with school supply shopping.  I am not emotionally prepared for Jake to be in kindergarten.  

It seems like he was a newborn just yesterday and now I’m expected to turn him out into the world.  Suit him up, slap on a backpack, put together a healthy lunch respecting all...

Spring 2014 Shoe Trends
It may seem a little late to post a spring shoe trends piece, but given the harsh, neverending winter we all just survived it didn’t seem right to talk about sexy new spring shoes while still wearing winter boots, parkas and for many of us - a fine, downy layer of leg fur as an extra measure of warmth.

As you retire to your bathroom for an evening of leg waxing with Nair’s Candy Apple Sugar Wax...

Purses are my one true love. Seriously, a walk into a bag section in any store and my knees get weak. It's hard not to look for a purse which can carry everything and anything you can think of, like an extra bread roll in case dinner sucks. A night beginning with a heavy packed tote usually ends with my date carrying it. (Sorry a girls arms can get tired, he's cool with it!) But who wants to lug...

Is it spring yet? This winter has been so long and drabby, I cannot wait to bring my bright prints and short sleeves back into my closet. Stores are starting to bring in their spring collections, so it's hard not to think about throwing away my chunky knits and going for a bright two piece…. okay maybe I'm dreaming too big, we are still in a polar vortex. But that doesn't mean we Chicks can't...

Remember mood rings? How awesome were they? I think Alexander Wang feels the same way because he's just created this super cool bag that is heat activated. So as it gets warmer, the colour changes! Mood bag, anyone? 


The bag is created from thermo-reactive calf leather and goes from black to a bright, lime green when warmed. It's going for US$375 and it's an exclusive product for Fancy.com....

I'm kind of obsessed with vintage engagement rings. Not in the 'I really want to get married way' because ugh - living with a boy is bad enough. But in the 'I really want something sparkly to look at when I type way' because my fingers are boooorrr-ing. 

I love vintage rings especially because they carry such a unique story to them. While new rings let you create something new with your...

I am in the unfortunate situation of being both incredibly lazy and loving beauty products. When I'm at home, or coming from the office, my usual look is subtle, natural and laid back. Hairs in a bun and clothes are mostly easy, throw on basics. However, there are occasions that need me to quickly take my lazy Alex look and bring it to fancy schmancy professional Alex. Interviews, meetings, dates,...

The prospect of deciding what to wear to a holiday party can be a daunting task. However, when you break it down, it actually becomes simple math. For instance, take this wrap dress, add this statement necklace, add a gorgeous heel and don't forget to multiply the hot factor with a great lipstick and it equals to effortless style! 

We broke down 5 stunning and attention grabbing outfits...

This morning, I pressed the snooze button about 5 times. I ran into the shower, put on whatever I could find and left for work. So basically, I am wearing the sweatshirt I wore to bed and the skinny jeans I wore yesterday. Class act, I know.

This could have been avoided if I had prepped some super easy, ready to go outfits for my late mornings. It's an idea I got from one of our fave beauty gurus
