When It Comes To Your Personal Style, Screw Perfection

Barbara Aleks Hecht | January 20, 2017 | Canada Style
Here's the thing: style is completely subjective. It's also ever changing. Yes there are (so-called) rules and guidelines, do's and don'ts, ins and outs, but style itself is, or should be, a personal, individual thing -- an expression of and extension of the self.

What's Your Home Decor Style?

Toronto Storeys | January 19, 2017 | Canada Style
Many of us are a little (OK, a lot) obsessed with home design so it's only natural that it comes up in dinner-party conversation or during a girl's night out. Or at the bus stop, or in the dentist's chair. Sometimes, however, we're stuck for a quick way to sum up our aesthetic. Here are 10 ways to communicate your home decor style succinctly -- so you can even do it on an elevator ride.

Lisa Borden | January 10, 2017 | Canada Living
Being clean and smelling great should never mean using manufactured, toxic substances that you will inhale and absorb. If you insist on wearing a scent or scenting a space, please consider these ways to smell fresh while going fragrance-free.

Best Hair Styles For Your 40s

Caroline Topperman | January 10, 2017 | Canada Style
When I look around, there are lots of women with really great hair, but there seem to be so many more with drab, no-style styles or those that insist on wearing their hair up, every single day. It seems like most women in that category fall into their late 30s to 40s. It's as if this is the age where we lose our direction.

Your Brows On Fleek Could Come With A Side Of Hep C

Alexandria Durrell | January 4, 2017 | Canada Style
Microblading is the new lash extension -- everyone's doing it. Those perfect brows you're seeing on Instagram aren't the result of brain surgeon-steady hands applying gel, they're the work of artists tattooing them onto faces. And yes, let's be clear: microblading is absolutely a tattoo process. They're placing ink under your skin, that's the very definition of tattooing, so if you're consulting with someone who tells you otherwise: R-U-N away.

Why Design Is So Integral In Our Everyday Lives

Marcello Cabezas | December 15, 2016 | Canada Style
Everything we interact with has been in the hands, the thoughts, the dreams of someone. Some person, some team, some group has thought sometimes for minutes, hours, days and maybe years. Their challenge. How to make this "thing" functional, durable, environmentally conscious, pleasing, interesting, and relevant? And hopefully thought inspiring?

Leah Morrigan | December 8, 2016 | Canada Style
