Thank You Jergens For A Wonderful Night!

Last night I was honored to attend Stars on Ice, thanks to Jergens® Skincare

I was also delighted by some figure skaters that were not Canadian. American Ashley Wagner was so beautiful to watch. She was very graceful in her movements.

Sinead Kerr & John Kerr are the British champions. They were exceptional and the skating mixed with the music was incredibly powerful. I could definitely see why they are champions.

But you know what?! I went with all the intention of screaming the loudest for Kurt Browning.
For his whole career I have been a fan. So to have the opportunity to watch him skate, let alone skate to "Singin' In The Rain", (which I got to see him perform twice in a row!), I was in awe. Here is a little teaser video for you all.



I also had my heart stolen during the last olympics. Remember, Canadian olympian Joannie Rochette lost her mom. When she performed her routine during the olympics, I cried. Oh, how I cried. And to see her last night, looking like an angel, I had to choke back the emotion.
Her mom is definitely looking down on her very proudly.

That brings me to the sponsors from last night. Investors Group, Lindt and World Vision.
As these skaters have wonderful families and sponsors to help them on their journey to competitions and shows, there are places like World Vision that help those who don't have that support that every child needs.  A commercial was played at intermission, and I couldn't help but cry. Sad to think of what we take for granted, and all over there are children who need, even just a nudge of love and emotional support. I was able to give a small donation after the show, but it's not enough. I hope you reading may find time or money to give too.

And now to close, I want to thank Jergens for the most amazing experience a lady could ask for. I have memories that will never be replaced, and a swipe off my bucket list. Also a huge thanks for the goodies that were handed out! You're the best!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
