Every year when we flip the calendar to May, something magical happens. There’s something about this month that seems to open up a whole world of possibilities: Whether it’s a case of believing in the traditional May flowers adage or a celebration of motherhood, we anticipate good things. With that in mind, this issue is packed with fresh ideas and inspiration for the days to come. To get you started, here’s a list of things that we look forward to in May (maybe your favourites are here, too). STAR WARS DAY May the fourth be with us all. BLOSSOMING TREES A profusion of delicate pink, white, yellow and purple blooms burst onto branches that were seemingly bare the previous day.

10 tricks, tips and ideas we love this month

1 WARDROBE WAKE UP When warmer weather starts to arrive, we get excited to freshen up and brighten up our fashion choices—and we bet you do, too. This month, we’re loving these colourful midrise chino pants from the spring collection of Canadian women’s apparel giant Reitmans.

east coast escape

Cape Ann MASSACHUSETTS This charming region, sometimes referred to as ‘the other cape,’ is just a one hour drive north of Boston, and attracts visitors to its coastal landscapes, beautiful white sand beaches—Wingaersheek is a must—and picturesque towns. The entire length of the cape can be driven in less than a day, but it’s worth taking the time to discover what the area has to offer. Explore by wandering along the waterfront promenade in the town of Gloucester or admiring the art in the galleries of Rocky Neck. Treat yourself to some famous Rockport saltwater taffy or a basket of fried clams, a regional specialty. Where to eat ROY MOORE LOBSTER CO.

Visit “Not only did I notice my brighter, firmer complexion, but I also wasn't left trying to cover up any irritation or redness.” CHALLENGE As a beauty expert, I love delivering information on all things new and exciting in the world of beauty. On-camera, I try to stay true to myself, which means you won't see me reporting with a full face of glam makeup on—it's just not who I am. The older I get, I focus less on how much makeup I wear and more on how my sensitive skin looks and feels. Overall, simplifying my routine, keeping my skin firm and preventing wrinkles are my goals.
