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...

Nothing says sexy hair like dirty hair. It’s true! Hair that’s been washed a day or two ago is ideal for updos or creating a tousled beachy look - my favourite.

Chicks, you did it!

We asked you to join in the fight against Ebola, specifically to help the children who, in addition to losing their parents are also victims of social stigma as villagers fear for their own health.  These children are left to fend for themselves while we shop for Christmas gifts.  I know that is not what anyone wants to hear but it is reality.

We promised to match you...

Dear ChickAdvisor Community,

Like all of you, Alex and I have been watching the Ebola crisis unfolding in horror.  Over 14,000 victims, over 5,000 deaths and the thousands upon thousands of newly orphaned children.  They are the poorest of the poor and mostly left to fend for themselves because no one wants to touch them.

We are reaching out to you today, our ChickAdvisor community and...

At 1 and 3, my tots are at an age where they are really starting to test their independence.  Toddlers aren’t known for their reasoning skills, which means I have to be creative when it comes to getting them to do things like brush their teeth, use the toilet or eat my (apparently disgusting?) home cooking.

Here is how I get them to do all of the above without realizing they are doing what...

Fall Mood-BoostersCan I get a show of hands: how many of you are not into Fall?  As soon as the geese start flying south, I have to ramp myself up for it.  Mental pep-talks, self-given  incentives: trips booked now for the thick of winter, new outdoor floral arrangements (so I can pretend I’m into it) and sometimes even home redecorating.  Yes.

Even though this post is sponsored by Trade Secrets I’m going to confess something that is probably going get me in trouble:  

I do not trust myself at Trade Secrets.  

Not without a penny-wise chaperone who will remind that no, I do not need 4 bottles of shampoo going at once because, “it saves money in the long haul” (rotating between expensive and affordable ones, obviously)...
