So, did you watch? What did you think of HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge?!
I absolutely LOVED every minute of it!
I thought Kate's dress was stunning. Definitely channeling the grace and style of a past princess - Grace Kelly.

A recent survey completed by The Body Shop showed that 74% of Canadians spend five minutes or longer in the shower. If you're thinking, big deal...well, actually, it is! This amounts to over 750 billion litres of water a year!
With water being one of our most precious resources, The Body Shop is asking Canadians to take the Three Minute Shower Challenge to help reduce water consumption.
Take the challenge and make your shower even more guilt-free by using one of The Body Shop's Shower Gels from their Earth Lovers collection.
At $12.00 each, these 100% biodegradable shower gels feature a soap-free base and contain no sulfates, parabens or colourants. Even better? They smell divine! My personal fave is the Apricot & Basil variation.
It's Earth Day, so why not make your next shower a quickie?
Will you take the Three Minute Shower Challenge? What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day?
Those of us who colour our hair (especially blondes), are in a constant battle with roots. When you first get your hair coloured, you love it. It looks amazing. Then, four to five weeks later, the regrowth starts showing and your oh-so-natural colour isn't looking so natural anymore.
For those of you who don't mind your roots - embrace it! Showing off them off is now au courant in Hollywood.
Personally, I think a love affair between me and my roots is unlikely. But what about you?
Will you embrace the ombré trend or will you keep your colourist on speed dial?

There has been an ongoing debate on whether or not soy should be listed as a food to avoid or a superfood. The estrogen-like properties in soy have people divided – is it safe? How does it affect natural hormones?
While it may be easy for some people to give up soy, for women who have dairy allergies or who are vegans, soy products can be staples in their diets and eliminating them completely can be difficult. Also, how many of us would be willing to eat sushi with out the soy sauce?
Breast cancer survivors have traditionally been advised to avoid soy products for fear that the estrogen-like qualities of soy might cause the cancer to return.
If a recent study is any indication, health professionals may start advising breast cancer survivors to increase their soy intake rather than eliminate it.
The study, comprised of more than 18,000 women, analyzed their soy intake in both food and supplement form. It showed that the likelihood of breast cancer recurring in women who consumed soy did not increase.
Even more interesting, was that women with the highest intake of soy had a 15 percent decreased risk for breast cancer recurrence.
While more studies will need to be completed before there is a clear answer, for the time being it seems that the benefits of soy outweigh the risks.
What do you think? Are you willing to give soy another chance?
