Like it or hate it, it’s that time of year again. Time to turn back the clock. That means darker afternoons but an extra hour of sleep. On Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 a.m. the clocks go back an hour and on Sunday, March 10, 2019 they’ll spring ahead again.

And don’t forget today is Fashion Friday with Kim XO on Black press, She is one of Canada’s top stylists and today she is talking about how you can take a classic black turtleneck and wear it several different ways.
