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...

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...

They say "Home is where the heart is", and it’s true! Whether your four walls are a family home in a new development, a bungalow in the neighbourhood where you grew up, or that well-earned city-centre condo, home is where memories are made and good times are shared. 

As all of those home renovation shows keep reminding us, putting personal touches on your living spaces is an easy...

There can never be too many bridal cake & dress reality shows on TV, right? I can't be the only one here who has been guilty of binge-watching these overplayed reruns on weekends...

There's something missing from the mix of these wedding shows though, and that's the focus on the hairstyles! After searching through hundreds of pictures of gorgeous 'dos on celebs and royal brides, we have found...

I love a nice, big, hot cup of tea. Sunday afternoon, orange pekoe or perhaps a green tea, in my favourite big mug with a cookie on the side and a good book on the table = perfection. While it tastes great, it's also packed full of antioxidants which means it's great for you too. So, it only makes sense that beauty products would contain tea to help soothe skin and prevent signs of aging.

Since the deep winter freeze has hit us, I've been spending most of my time binge-watching Netflix. I've also been dying to try some great home décor DIY's. If I'm going to spending all my time indoors, it better be pretty. I've fallen off the DIY bandwagon lately and I've been itching to get back on. My only issue? Time. I want my DIY's to be quick so that I can still spend a hour or...

Those who know me know that my nickname is 'Human Napkin' because I am ALWAYS covered in stains. Hey, I like to eat and I'm clumsy, and that has it's price. I'm a big fan of the bronzer during winter as well which means that my shirts ALWAYS have a ring of makeup around the collar. Yeah, I know, I'm a mess. 

Luckily, there are some excellent hacks out there for those of us who have some...

I remember one of my first dye jobs. I decided it would look supa hawt to dye chunks of my dark brunette hair a nice, light blonde. It did not look supa hawt but actually supa awful when that hideous blonde turned into a brassy shade. If only I had known this one trick that uses a common kitchen item to fight those unwanted tones and to keep your shade true to colour. 

Sidenote: Well, actually...

It always amazes me how much of a difference mascara makes. Eyes go from ho-hum to BAM! In your face! Having majuurr lashes creates larger eyes and puts the focus on those peepers. If only we woke up in the morning with mascara-like lashes all ready to go, amirite?! Well, actually, there may be something to it. While we've tried lash extensions and totally loved the results, extensions are not...

New Years Eve is always kind of a let down. I hype it up so much and when it comes down to it, it's always lame. Plus, going out is going to cost you $$$. Heading to a club? Be prepared to pay cover charge and for drinks worth a quarter their price. Your best bet is have a few close gals and guys over, spruce up the place to get the atmosphere right, pump the jams and get down to having fun.
