We’re working on a special sex and relationships edition to learn more about what really goes on in the bedrooms of modern Canadians!
We’re hoping you’ll take a few moments to (anonymously) fill out our survey.
When you complete this survey, you’ll find a link you can follow to be entered in a contest to win one of two prize packs: a Paco Rabanne Olympéa perfume set and Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume set. (Value $250 each.) Even if you enter the contest, all answers are strictly confidential and will only be used in conjunction with those of the other respondents. Be sure to complete this survey in a safe, private place.
Chanel brought a taste of Cuba to St. Tropez for their new Cruise campaign, and we’re in love.
Models Stella Tennant and Mica Arganaraz pose in the breathtaking images, shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself in the South of France.
The colours and landscapes perfectly evoke the island mood of the collection, and the photos have us daydreaming about our next getaway.
Take a look at all of the stunning images from the campaign.
In honor of the superstar's 31st birthday, we're looking back at all of our favourite Ciara songs, from the early 2000s to now.
1. '1, 2 Step' (2004)
Who could forget her signature 1, 2 Step? It was the hottest dance move of 2004.
2. 'Goodies' (2004)
This really was her breakout year. We''re still trying to get this song out of our heads.
3. 'Oh' ft. Ludacris (2004)
Ciara at her most gangsta, ladies and gents.
4. 'Like You' (2005)
Bet you forgot Ciara and Bow Wow were a thing. They may be long over but their duet will always be R&B gold.
5. 'Get Up' (2006)
Ci Ci came out with this in 2006 to remind everyone that she's basically the best dancer who ever lived.
6. 'Like A Boy' (2006)
This whole concept was ICONIC. Also, can we talk about what an attractive guy Ciara would be?
7. 'Love Sex Magic' (2009)
Ciara + Justin Timberlake + a steamy love song = magic.
8. 'Never Ever' (2009)
Ciara dished out some pretty catchy love advice. If that boy don't love you by noooow.....
9. 'Body Party' (2013)
Ciara made quite the comeback with this steamy song & video, where she danced for her new beau Future.
10. 'I Bet' (2015)
And she killed her break up song for Future too. Yaaas Ciara, get that bomb selfie.

We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.
