How To Stay Healthy During The Long Winter Months

Hi Girlies,

Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. It’s December tomorrow. December, people!! When did THAT happen?

Beside beautiful falling snow, winter often brings something entirely different — flu season! In fact, my family’s skin has already faded from golden brown (summer lovin’) to pale white to green-like. You can feel the winter chill in the air fast approaching. We slacked off with our health regime all summer long, because we had the benefits of natural sunlight, the great outdoors, and we ate a ton of fruit. However, with a bunch of kids packed into close quarters at school, for hours on end, it’s only a matter of time before everyone is sick again.

Wordless Wednesday: Sexiest Man Alive

Wordless Wednesday: Sexiest Man Alive

It was announced yesterday. Your Sexiest Man Alive 2015 is… drumroll… David Beckham.

Ladies, ladies, what say you?

I’m not on the fence here… he is not unsexy, per se. He is quite handsome. I’ll give you that.

But I said last year, maybe I’m still living in the past, but this was the Sexiest Man Alive EVER for moi.

Talking Money With Your Grown Kids: Reviewing Your Student’s Finances Over The Holidays

When their exams are over and the holidays begin, students will have a lot of celebrating to do. There is no question that post-secondary education is an expensive investment. Whether living at home or on their own, students may be surprised by how quickly their expenses can add up, and many may have already blown their budget.

While 90 percent of parents say they know roughly how much debt their child has, only 78 percent of students agree, according to an RBC Student Banking survey. Some students may not want to tell their parents their bank account is running on empty, which can cause financial woes down the road.

Single and Dating in 2015: 6 Ways Social Media is Ensuring We All Die Alone

Don’t get me wrong, our internet driven society and age of social media mania definitely has its perks; people can work remotely, re-connect with old friends and stay in touch with family all over the world – not to mention the ego-boost you get from a well-liked Instagram selfie…

Gone are the days of handwritten love letters and desires for a long-term partner – millennial daters favour a flirty wink emoji and yet another Saturday night hook up. Let’s all breathe a communal sigh of exasperation at how social media has ruined love and romance as we know it.
