School days

Canadian Living - - Editor’s Letter - Erin Mclaugh­lin cl. read­ers@

I’ve been out of the vor­tex of the school-year sum­mer va­ca­tion for longer than I care to ad­mit, yet there’s still some­thing so re­vi­tal­iz­ing to me about Septem­ber. Maybe it’s the buzz of the kids go­ing back to school, the lat­est fall fash­ion or the re­turn of a more struc­tured rou­tine that has me wish-list­ing new of­fice sup­plies (there’s noth­ing like a fresh note­book, right?).

School’s in ses­sion at Cana­dian Liv­ing this is­sue with ed­u­ca­tion in style, decor, health, cook­ing and life in gen­eral. For this month’s beauty les­son, we show you ge­nius ways to look years younger (page 22), then learn how to ef­fort­lessly in­cor­po­rate the hottest fash­ion trends into your wardrobe (page 24). In our Life & Com­mu­nity sec­tion, take our course in get­ting more free time (page 38), and use those new­found hours to dive into a juicy book (our picks are on page 46). Have you al­ways loathed phys-ed? You’ll find in­spi­ra­tion to start a fit­ness reg­i­men with a laid-back yet ef­fec­tive walk­ing rou­tine (page 56). There’s a primer in easy-care flow­er­ing shrubs (page 68) and a master class in de­sign­ing the ul­ti­mate laun­dry room (page 70), too. And in “A Taste of Italy” (page 82), you’ll find the most im­por­tant les­son you’ll ever learn in cook­ing class: how to eat like an Ital­ian. Buon ap­petito!
