Colin and Justin Deal With Total Dock Shock

Colin & Justin | March 26, 2015 | Canada Style
Aware we'd chosen a cabin with more bad points than good, we hoped that somehow, just somehow, the dock we'd inherited as part of our chattels would be in better condition than it was. But no. It was rotten to the core.

If you have ever watched a red carpet event, tuned into an awards show or flipped open a fashion magazine, you have most likely seen the work of the talented celebrity makeup artist and photographer, Troy Jensen. His signature style is a radiant look that goes beyond the makeup and draws attention to the woman wearing it.

Why We Should Get Rid of the "Plus-Size" Label Altogether

Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues | March 24, 2015 | Canada Style
By separating two body types into "plus-size" and "straight size," the fashion industry is telling us that we have to either identify as the same size as the general public or not. According to retailers there is a plus-size and a straight size. Labelling sizing in this way separates us rather than unifying us. Fashion and body types are not black or white.

Colin and Justin Take on a Slanty Shanty

Colin & Justin | March 21, 2015 | Canada Style
Four months of extreme nail biting. The appraisal of several hundred pages of property details and appointments to view perhaps 45 cottages. Yup, the search for a new cabin was arduous. Just as we were about to throw in the towel, Rob emailed one last prospect: a 1980s A-frame. But it was clearly a bag of problems...

Why Buy a Dress When You Can Rent?

Barbara Aleks Hecht | March 18, 2015 | Canada Style
I heard about dress rentals when I started styling clients for their photo shoots. Renting a dress allows you to go to one location, try on a ton of dresses in a variety of styles and colours to see which is best for you (typically with an experienced stylist on hand to guide you).

Salt: Your Winter Boots' Natural Enemy

Leah Morrigan | March 17, 2015 | Canada Style
Salt, a highly corrosive mineral leaves its mark not only on our footwear, but also damages the natural world, metals, and building materials. In Ontario, where I currently live, winter road salt is used so heavily that the streets are white with it and there is fine white salt powder on everything.

Being Naturally Skinny Doesn't Make My Body Any Less "Real"

Julia Brucculieri | March 13, 2015 | Canada Living
I'm skinny. Always have been. My ribs show through my skin, too. I'm also healthy. I know that according to society, my body fits the ideal. But I also know that doesn't make me better than anyone else. It doesn't make me immune to criticism, either. Being called too skinny, is just as hurtful as being called too big.

Top Tips For Perfect Foundation Application

Sacha DeVoretz | March 4, 2015 | Canada Style
It is easier to add than it is to take away. Start with small amounts and gently blend until even along your jaw line, face and neck. A great trick if you have your blouse or top on is to drape a towel around your neck, so the foundation doesn't flake on to your top or blouse during the application process.

A Recipe For Perfect Kitchen Style

Colin & Justin | March 2, 2015 | Canada Style
Think first about how your dream kitchen needs to perform. More than simply somewhere to rustle up a delicious Chicken Parm', the kitchen, nowadays, is a meeting and chattering space where social intercourse occurs. It's also, potentially, a community centre for local kids, a homework station or just somewhere to enjoy a cuppa with friends while gossiping about life and love.

I Didn't Like the Products Available for My Family, So I Made My Own

Cheryl Hickey | March 2, 2015 | Canada Style
After I had my baby, I began to feel a huge responsibility to educate myself on what is out there for mother and baby. I became increasingly frustrated with the marketplace. If something was safe for baby and me, it was overly expensive, wouldn't last very long, and had a lengthy list of ingredients I didn't recognize.
