Wise Up About Menopause - Watch Hot Flash Havoc

By Marjie Killeen, Contributor- Midlife Wisdom

Hot flashes. Night sweats. Sleeplessness. Mood swings. Anxiety. Memory loss. Low Libido. It’s enough to make a woman crazy!

DotMine - Organization for Professionals, Families and Students

I have so many friends who have the latest smartphone – with all its fancy apps and productivity tools – yet, they still prefer to carry the good old-fashioned paper agenda.

I get it, actually. There is something very rewarding about jotting down do-not-forget’s and to-do’s on paper. And there is an immediate, tactile satisfaction too in scratching off that “done” item and…

Eating My Way Through My Canadian Vacation

Being Canadian and living in the United States, it amazes me that there are so many differences in our foods. I understand that some things are different since Canada has a marked British legacy, as it only gained full autonomy from the U.K. in 1982. Add the fact the we have a strong French influence too, this makes some of dishes uniquely Canadian, such as, Tourtière. That said, I feel that…

Start Your Tween on the Right Path for Healthy Skin

When I attended MORE magazine’s Reinvention Convention this last June and heard Dr. Will Kirby speak about healthy skin (I wrote about this in an article, Ageless Skin De-Mystified), it had me wonder when I should start teaching my girls about skin care. And,…

Niche Private Sales Sites

Sure. Deal-of-the-Day (DOTD) and Private Sales sites are ubiquitous now. Most everyone I know is subscribed to Groupon, LivingSocial, ideeli and some other fledgling local and fashion & travel deal sites. As much as we, customers, enjoy a good deal, it’s getting dizzying to navigate the DOTD landscape (which is why we recommended an aggregator like DealRadar.com which we…

Pig of the Month BBQ

When Anne-Marie’s family and mine got together in Chicago earlier this summer, Pig of the Month offered to supply us with an evening of BBQ bliss. Bliss it was!  The ribs arrived already cooked and frozen. We simply defrosted them overnight in the fridge. The next day we set the table and…

Stance Socks - For the Men in Your Life

I have both a son and a daughter (Lucky me. One of each and I was done!). Needless to say that my daughter has always been – way – more fun to shop for than my son. Boys’ clothing is so predictable and… boring. My son has always enjoyed “clowning around” with his personal style. In his early teen years he was trying hard to discover and differentiate his own fashion style from the same-same sea of cargo shorts, board shoes and logo’d tees. Whether it was to wear a neon pink striped beanie,…
