Sari Friedman | April 25, 2017 | Canada Style
It's hard to resist the siren song of spring fashion. Suddenly clothes are bright and light again after a long, drab winter. But with all the new styles to choose from, how do you know which trend is best, and how can you afford what you want?

Meet 7 Models Who Are Using Their Platforms For Inspiring Causes

Tia Duffy | March 28, 2017 | Canada Style
I have met hundreds of models throughout my time working in the fashion industry but there are specific people that stood out to me over the years. Some I have had the pleasure to meet and work with and others I have admired from a distance. It is hard to thrive in an industry that is so competitive and cut throat.

Spring Into Spring With Pastels!

Janette Ewen | March 27, 2017 | Canada Style
From fashion to home décor pastels are quickly becoming the colour focus for spring style. Designers took notice when soft hues, rose quartz and serenity, were named by Pantone for the colours of 2016. From these light and youthful shades, designers have seemed to rediscover pastels. Here are some easy and chic ways to incorporate this "new" look into your wardrobe and home.

Pretty Soon Your Entire Wardrobe Will Be Made From Plastic

Candice Batista | March 20, 2017 | Canada Living
I've been on the search recently for more natural fibers and materials when it comes to the clothing I wear, especially my gym and yoga wear. Which is mostly polyester and synthetic (yours is too, check the label). Little did I know how bad this fabric is for our environment. After a bit of digging... it's not so good, to say the least!

Focus On The Positives To Truly Fall In Love With Your Body

Caroline Topperman | February 24, 2017 | Canada Living
I believe that if you are constantly putting yourself down and trying to achieve unattainable results, then you probably won't succeed (or at least not the way you want to) at keeping a consistent beauty routine, having a wardrobe you love or sticking with a fitness routine.

Tips For Truly Clean And Eco-Healthy Skin

Lisa Borden | February 23, 2017 | Canada Style
a healthy skincare routine can extend far beyond the cosmetics and skin care products you choose to put on your face. What you put into your body, and what you are exposed to in your environment can make a huge difference, too.

The Gaga Brand Is Back And Better Than Ever

Julie Rusciolelli | February 9, 2017 | Canada Living
The Lady Gaga we fell in love with 10 years ago is back and better than ever. The icon who carved out an indelible brand persona has finally returned to her fans, her roots, her senses, and to her betrothed little monsters. She has reclaimed her trademark pedigree that made her the irrepressible image we all fell in love with. And she did it without any outside help or needless controversy.

Are You Seriously Mocking Asian Eyes, Gigi Hadid?

Isabelle Khoo | February 7, 2017 | Canada Living
In the now-deleted clip, Gigi is seen squinting her eyes as she holds a Buddha-shaped cookie up to her face. While this type of joke is often seen as innocent, this little stunt is actually mocking the physical features of an entire race - and it's not OK. It's racist and it's ignorant.

Confessions Of A Thrift Store Dad

David Leonhardt | February 6, 2017 | Canada Parents
Exactly. People don't generally announce in public that they shop at the Salvation Army, Value Village or Goodwill. But my teenage daughters love shopping at the thrift store. It's not that they like saving money. It's that they can get more clothes. I know those are two sides of the same coin, but it's a fundamentally different attitude.

What To Wear To Work After Maternity Leave

Afiya Francisco | February 2, 2017 | Canada Parents
With your wardrobe, small details can make the difference between feeling somewhat polished (even if you're not totally feeling like your pre-baby self) and showing up to a meeting covered in breast milk. It helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve.

Beautify Your Home With An Upcycled Furniture Project

Jacki Andre | January 25, 2017 | Canada Style
When the weather keeps me cooped up indoors, I like doing creative projects that keep me busy and beautify my space at the same time. One project that's been languishing since last summer is refinishing an old cabinet. I have a big soft spot for anything retro or vintage. Because I love the inherent history in old items, I rarely refinish them. The scratches, the dents, and the chips are all part of their stories. But upcycling old furniture is quite trendy now, and I've seen so many beautiful ideas. I wanted to try it.

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.

Fragrance Is The New Second-Hand Smoke

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.

Hair Trends To Watch In 2017

Sacha DeVoretz | January 9, 2017 | Canada Style
For 2017, we foresee beautiful big curls with a cheek length face-framing fringe and layers throughout. We additionally look forward to styling sleek ponytails and top knots with soft ribbon details and accessories such as bows, and big bold jewelry including emeralds and diamonds.

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.
