Thank You @JergensCanada and @StarsOnIce

On Saturday night, I once again attended a wonderful event thanks to Jergens Canada!

Stars On Ice
 Investors Group Stars on Ice presented by Lindt is proud to welcome Canada’s top Olympic medal contenders straight from the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, to its nationwide tour this spring. Three-time and reigning World Champion Patrick Chan, a favorite to become the first Canadian man to win the men's Olympic Gold, and defending Olympic Dance Champions Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir will highlight a spectacular cast, including four-time World Champion & four-time Canadian Champion Kurt Browning; 2010 Olympic Bronze Medalist Joannie Rochette; and more of Canada’s finest Olympic talent in the World’s premier figure skating tour – Stars on Ice!
This is a photo from last year's tour. There are new skaters on the tour this year. Still the show was everything I had hoped it would be and more.


For me it was seeing my favorites again that was the highlight. Joannie Rochette, Kurt Browning, Tessa & Scott and Patrick Chan are who I get excited to see. However, after last year, I was also excited to see Shawn Sawyer. He is unique, quirky and cool!
Shawn Sawyer
His routines are always fun to watch and very unique. In this one, he was a rafter and did a few back flips and such. In the other routine he was a cheetah or leopard. Prowling around the ice. It was awesome to watch!
Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir
The chemistry between Tessa & Scott really shows on the ice. The look so beautiful together, and the routines are romantic. I could watch them all night long.
Kurt Browning
Now Kurt Browning is my all-time favorite figure skater, so you know his routines were the highlight of my night. He is so funny and interacts with the audience like no one else. He is a delight to watch skating or talking. 

Here is a not-so-great video of pairs skaters, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford.



It really is an experience that everyone should have once in their life. There is something magical about watching our Canadian Olympians do what they do best. I suggest you catch a show when you can.

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…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
