Excuse us: for the first time ever we've been at war during one of our own TV series. As you'll see on Sunday's Cabin Pressure, our long suffering director Marshall twisted our arm into a full on C&J competition, that being to fashion one guest bedroom per designer. Crucially, neither of us would be privy to the other's plan. But which do you prefer?
More than twice as many kids are driven to school these days compared to 25 years ago, and that's having an impact on everyone. In a study released April 5 by Metrolinx, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area's transportation planning agency, researchers found a decline among youth in the use of physically active modes of transportation to commute to school over a 25-year period. And this has huge implications for the future of Toronto.

Life can be beautiful, but occasionally it can also kick us in the teeth. We can experience loss, disappointment, adversity. Eventually, everyone has to face their fair share of pain. What makes the difference between someone who barely survives these challenges in life, and someone who meets these challenges head-on and thrives?

Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with Linda Ly owner and founder of Onyx Aesthetics Studio. Linda shared with me the hottest trends for nails this spring and also the top tips for shellac manicures and pedicures. I love shellac polish. I find it lasts much longer than regular nail polish and I don't get as many chips.

Men used to have shorter life spans than women, according to statistics that seemed unchanging for many decades. But lately the gap started to close, and at least part of the male population is now making headways in terms of healthy aging and longevity.
Crunches have traditionally been the "go to" abdominal exercise; but I am on a mission to change that! Why? First, crunches round you forward, which promotes a hunched-over posture. So, even if you manage to sculpt your abs, no one will see them because you will be bent over. Plus, we all sit too much anyway, and sitting already rounds us forward... Ditch crunches and instead do functional exercises.

Colour is big this spring -- sunny yellow, mint, candy pink complemented by richer jewel tones such as real turquoise and fuchsia are on trend. They're fun, bright and perfect for spring.
A new study claims that those we share our lives with, our spouses and partners, have a much greater influence on our health- and fitness status, regardless how genetically programmed we are. The more decisive factors, it seems, are the choices we make in connection with other adults.

The entrance of technology, expectations of luxury, and disruptive competitors are just some of the variables that constantly change market needs, and luxury car makers are then left with the difficult task of building next generation models that exceed, well, everything.

Managing a big change in life can be daunting. That's why we need to have a clear understanding of our financial situation. It can't be fuzzy. Banks, for example, regularly conduct stress tests to identify areas of vulnerability. Testing allows for preventative planning to avoid systemic breakdowns or unrecoverable losses.

I believe your skin (and your hair) are your two best accessories. So I make an extra effort to take care of myself by drinking plenty of water, eating healthy and maintaining a daily skin care regime. Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with Elizabeth Lamont, Vice President of Marketing, La Prairie.
I love watches. They look elegant on both men and women. Having a watch on your wrist, says that you could use your phone to tell the time, but you are more interested in the details and creativity with how you express your style.

I am judging you if you are barking orders at your partner. That person is not your slave. Their role is to help you, support you and guide you. There was a time, before stress, when you were loving and kind, which is why you are together. Get back to that. Your life will be better.

Finding the right fit when you have a bigger chest is not fun. So many women have commented to me, "You are so lucky to have a chest." Not when it comes to finding clothes that fit. But as the fashion industry continues to expand its vision on body shapes, now too, there are styles to accommodate bigger chested women.
As we grow older we start to get to know ourselves a little bit more each day. Taking on new habits, letting go of old habits, gaining strength and sometimes learning to be vulnerable. Many people com...

Not only am I a liberal-minded, strongly opinionated woman, but I'm a fully conscious being with a beating heart, eyes and a f***ing conscience. Somehow, though, we've managed to turn the continually debated subject matter into something people shy away from breaching and exploring. Something easily misinterpreted as "Latin for armpit hair."

With the chilly weather outside, this time of year layering options are really popular for yoga. Choose pieces that you can remove as you warm up once you're on the mat. Pairing a strappy bra with a tank and covering up with a long sleeve tee allows you to peel off the layers as you begin moving through your poses and start to sweat.
Don't laugh, but reading glasses have become a key part of my style. The first time I picked up a pair of reading glasses (after 40), everything changed (for the better). No more straining to read or having to increase the zoom view on my computer screen.

While I have a blessed life (with its fair share of twists, turns, and challenges) with a loving husband, three healthy children, a career, and a comfortable lifestyle, the hustle and bustle of everyday life was leaving me feeling lonely, and craving deeper connections and meaning.

So much of our health, our happiness, our success and our relationships come down to how well our bodies work. I want to talk about the most important facet of what we eat and when we should eat it. I'm talking about breakfast. Breakfast has been a source of controversy and debate.

I remember the day my agent told me to lose 2 inches off my hips and that my thighs were getting too big. She suggested that I try yoga to tone down. I was devastated. She didn't see how hard I was trying to be thin. I was dieting and hardly eating just to keep my stick-thin frame. It was then that I decided to give up on modeling because I was ruining my body.

I used to think of a New Years' Resolution as one big promise that you made for yourself. The problem was, it never worked for me. I never kept that one big promise. I find by writing lists of my past and future accomplishments, I put myself in the mindset that is more realistic in my life.
I love New Year's resolutions! All those pesky loose ends from 2015 can be collected and tied into a bow for the New Year. Here are five simple and transformational steps for making 2016 your healthiest year yet.

One of the biggest trends is the stacking trend, you can wear bangles to create a whirl of colour, or worn individually to add a touch of sparkle to any outfit.

This Christmas, their laser-beam eyes are focused on you. You're the dish of the day. You're gonna be stuffed with advice and ladled with criticism. Because they can't stand themselves. Deep in their souls, they feel like failures. What better antidote than subtly belittling you via the mechanism of meddling.
As a lifestyle blogger and journalist, I have a bag (or two) slung over my shoulder, filled with healthy snacks, pens, laptop, camera, lenses and tripod. The bag is spilling out of the top, and quite often heavier than I am.

Te practice of Kegels actually increases your pelvic vascularity, which means more blood flow and more genital awareness, which is more pleasure for you!

It's that awkward time of year when the weather seems to be having daily mood swings. Just as soon as it's getting warmer, it turns around and bites you with some cold. These abrupt weather changes can cause symptoms of the cold and flu, and we risk not only our own functionality and health, but that of others too.
