Holiday shopping is always a challenge, and shopping for frequent travellers can be even more difficult. If we've seen one list of "travel gifts," we've seen them all, amirite? How many monogrammed travel pouches, passport covers and decorative globes does one person need?

For many the month is packed with running around shopping malls (like a lunatic), spending money (you don't have) and eating all of the food (all of it). We rarely remember to take care of the most important person in our lives: ourselves.
This fall, I decided to challenge myself. I set out to wear one black dress the whole month of November, and, in the process, create awareness about how important having the right clothes for inclement weather truly is. Here are five things I've learned from this experiment.
Canadians are no strangers to outrageous winter adventures. They're used to playing ice hockey on frozen lakes, skiing down steeps in chest-deep powder, and soaring downhill on plastic saucers. These four insane winter experiences are just a handful of the bucket-list-worthy, snow-based thrills you can find on a trip to Canada this winter.

In this moment of unease and unrest, it's heartening that we see ourselves as the world's helpful, conscientious neighbor. Well Canada, this week we have the chance to put our money where our identity is.

Can I really do like the people in the movies, and remember the meaning of Christmas without gift-giving?
The best part about this gift list is that everything on it is EDIBLE. You heard that right. No need to walk around the mall frantically searching and waiting in lines...all it takes is your awesome self, the kitchen and a few delicious ingredients.
As the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season, Black Friday is a great time for families to save on necessary purchases. While the deals change, the rules to getting the best deal stay the same.
