While the Raptors are losers, they're also record setters. They're history makers. And most importantly, they were the underdogs. Nobody likes a loser, but everyone can get behind an underdog.
As consumers get more savvy, they are increasingly demanding products that are organic, ethically sourced and produced in an environmentally responsible way. Consumers are increasingly aware of the negative effect chemicals have on their health and will buy organic iterations of their favourite products whenever they can.
Let's ditch the stereotypes and ingrained ideas of what independence and having a home mean. Prodigal youth haven't failed to launch and their parents haven't failed to parent. They're both flying in a smarter direction.
Undoubtedly you've seen the words RSVP printed on wedding, birthday party, or similar invitations -- but do you truly know what RSVP means in English, and how these words should be interpreted?
I remember feeling the weight of deep sadness and enormous gratitude all at once. You see, Sarah wasn't going to be able to use her breastmilk because the baby girl she was carrying wasn't expected to live very long after birth.
You want whatever you're doing to be perfect, and you get so disappointed and annoyed when the vision in your head doesn't match the reality. I know you, my love, and I know that it's so frustrating for you when things don't go right, when you are not living up to your own very high expectations for yourself.
I'm not saying having a drink should be a punishable offence. I am saying that as a society and as individuals, we tend to be rather cavalier about our general attitude towards alcohol. Nonchalant about the powerful impact it can have on one's faculties, decision-making and motor skills, among other things.
Meticulously searching for the perfect burger restaurant in each Canadian province and territory was no small feat, but the Deal Experts at Travelzoo have done it.... In honour of Hamburger Day 2016, here is a list of some amazing burger joints from coast to coast.
Trust yourself. If something does not seem right to you -- leave. Don't worry about being polite. Don't worry about looking foolish. Women who have found themselves in harrowing situations often say later that they wish they had listened to that queasy feeling.
Five books a week? Many of my friends are shocked that I can get through so many. "I wish! I simply don't have the time," many of them say... If you've binge watched even one Netflix series, you've had time to read. If you've been on Facebook scrolling through posts from a month ago, you've had time to read.
Ditch the "drink as much water as possible when exercising" and "always drink eight to 10 cups of water during daily life" mentality! Fitness professionals used to be told to advise everyone to drink as much as possible when working out, and to always drink a minimum of eight to 10 glasses of water per day. Turns out, neither guideline is ideal.
I'm not really sure where this gap year is going to take me (or whether it's going to be successful) but I'm excited to take a chance, not have anything planned, and see what opportunities this year brings.
The true power of the video and the reason why so many people watched it, was the fact that Candace Payne was able to laugh out loud without an ounce of self-consciousness. Ms. Payne was willing to look silly online, and I think that this ability to be so authentic and free was the real reason why her video got over 140 million views.
After a lot of self-work and love, I dropped the crap and chose to love myself, every wrinkle, every imperfection inside and out. This form of self-love is what we could be spreading, as opposed to fear of aging and the fear of ending up alone. We were born alone, and we will die alone, whether or not you have a husband and kids, this is true for all of us.
Having trouble losing that extra 10 lbs. of online dating frustration? Here's a suggestion: Go on a digital dating diet. It's not a breakup, and it's not forever, it's just a way to add balance and quality back into your dating menu before you totally burn out and dump online dating altogether.
The Chase Fish & Oyster, the more relaxed sister of the upscale Chase fine dining spot, is the latest restaurant to throw their Sunday brunch hat in the proverbial ring. Having just debuted their menu at the end of April, I had a chance to taste a few of the menu items.
To honour how far I've come, a few months ago I decided to treat myself to a collection of (now classic) home decor books that I've been lusting after since my Rubbermaid bin days. But, as true in both love and books, not everything (or everyone) lives up to your expectations.
Premiering May 26th on Global is a new light-hearted Canadian detective series starring Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson and called, bluntly enough, Private Eyes. It's a fairly generic light-hearted PI series. And I actually mean that as a compliment!
