Lessons from a Cancelled Flight: Fashion and Beauty for Airplanes

Friday July 5, 2013 by Alexandra

I recently had a mini vacay and took a few days to jet off to NYC. It was not only my first time in NYC, but also my first time ever having a cancelled flight! Joy! I prefer to stay positive though, and heck, it wasn't all that bad. I had a magazine, a friend, some snacks and a few hours to kill. It could have been a lot worse. 

Sure, it wasn't the easy going, smooth end to a vacation that I...

We Love Fridays: Travel Size Beauty Buddies

Friday May 24, 2013 by Alexandra C.

I am obsessed with travel sized items. They're just. so. cute. I can't even handle the adorableness of mini versions of my favourite products. Not only can you spend you time 'oohing' and 'aahing' at their cuteness, but (newsflash!) they're also super practical. The great thing about travel beauty buddies is that they often come in kits with everything you need in a...

Postcard from Naples, Florida

Tuesday May 7, 2013 by Ali

Naples, FloridaLike so many Canadians, I escaped to Florida this year to flee the cold. I don't know about the rest of Canada, but Toronto's winter felt never-ending and spring has been more than fashionably late. So, late one April evening, I found a deal and booked a one week air and hotel package at a Hyatt resort somewhere between Naples and Fort Meyers.  I justified the trip as a babymoon for #2, who...

Roadtripping with Kids: A Survival Guide

Recently, the Mister and I had the harebrained idea to take our kids roadtripping for a weekend during Spring Break. We based this brilliant decision on years and years of horrible experiences. 

Because, obviously, it can only improve from here (and in fairness, it was only horrible about 50% of the time. Sleeping, eating, and visiting the hotel...

Double Up on Rewards Points? We Take ChoicePlus for a Test Drive

Wednesday December 5, 2012 by Ali

Sponsored by American Express Canada

The last two years have been a blur.  Between having a baby, buying a 120-year-old house, and figuring out how to balance it all with a job I love, let's just say I'm personally keeping all the coffee houses in Toronto in the black.

Recently we told you about the newly released ChoicePlus Card from American Express.  It allows you to choose five...

Postcard from the Orlando You May Not Know

Tuesday October 9, 2012 by Alexandra C.

If you're an Orlando newbie like me, the first thing you think of when someone mentions the city is, without a doubt, Disney World. However, I recently had the amazing opportunity to see Orlando for a few days with Visit Orlando and not only did I have an incredible time, I had it without visiting Disney World. I'm not knocking Disney World by any means, I love me some Disney and I have a...

Postcard from Niagara on the Lake

Tuesday August 28, 2012 by Ali

Niagara on the LakeThough the Eat Local movement has been popular for some time, drinking local isn't as often considered when choosing wine.  Yet Canada has so much to offer from our wine regions.  People come from all over the world to visit the Okanagan Valley and the Niagara region to sample our famous cold climate wines.  Ice wine is an obvious winner in Ontario, but you may be surprised to...

When you have a child who suffers from nighttime bedwetting, or enuresis, you need a strategy and one that works. This is especially true when you’re going out with your child - whether it’s a trip to grandma’s, a long weekend at the cottage, or a family vacation to Disneyland.

Nighttime enuresis is a common problem, and all parents can do is try to help our children get through this...

Your Traveling Beauty Routine

Tuesday June 26, 2012 by Alexandra C.

When summer time rolls around, it's time to start packing those bags and digging out the maps! Everyone needs a vacation once in a while and this summer, I order all of you chicks to take some time to chill out and vacay it up! 

When it comes to travel, it doesn't matter whether you're roadtripping, cruising or exploring a new city; you want to look your cutest. But airplanes,...

Postcard from Napa Valley

Thursday June 7, 2012 by Ali

Even if you aren't a wine lover, it's impossible not to fall in love with Napa Valley.  In every direction, over rolling hills is vineyard after vineyard.  Add to that Palm and Cyprus trees, a good measure of lemon and lime trees and rose bushes everywhere.  It's pretty much perfection.  And the food.  I can't even speak about the food.  But since...
