Stars on Ice #JergensOnIce

Jergens

Jergens Canada and Lindt have once again stepped up to bring, Investors Group Stars On Ice. And I was once again lucky enough to be able to attend this star-studded night when it rolled into Hamilton, Ontario, my hometown. With it being Mother's Day weekend, I took my mom for a night to remember. Thanks, Jergens!

Stars On Ice
For the 25th anniversary of Stars On Ice, they have pulled out all the bells and whistles for the show. More glitz, more glamour and more dramatics than the last two years I attended. My favorite skater, Kurt Browning, was not only on the ice but also choreographed the show! It was incredible!

Pictured here is Kurt and Shawn Sawyer. Now this guy, Shawn, is crazy-amazeballs! He does back flips on the ice and even wore stilts! Yup, you read that right!

It was quite a performance by all, lemme tell ya. Plus, you find yourself singing along with the soundtrack and getting right into it. 
I love the romantic pairs skating too. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir always delight and give me goose flesh.

I also really love the romantic style of pairs skaters, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje. They are very expressive ice dancers.

Simply incredibly. The skill, the talent and the dedication is evident with every movement. That really goes for all the skaters.

Normally, I would include a video right about now, sadly I deleted it. Too many people were talking over it, and I didn't want to mute the whole thing. I will just keep it for myself to watch over and over again... which I will, it is with Shawn Sawyer after all.

Last year and the year before, skaters fell, but this time not one skater teetered. They really gave it everything they had and the audience could feel it. Maybe it was the nostalgia that goes along with an anniversary, but you could see this tour was magical, special even. If you live in any of the cities that still have upcoming shows, I urge you to go. It is not very much money, and you will have the time of your life. Promise! 


Thank you to the athletes that put on an amazing show, thanks to Investors Group, Jergens Canada, Lindt and World Vision also. You gave me memories to last a lifetime.

  1. What a fun night with your mom! I remember going to ice shows with my family when I was young and had so much fun! And how on earth do you skate on stilts? Amazing!

  2. Looks like a great show! I would love to see this. I watch ice skating on television but I think to see it live would be so much more amazing. Great post!

  3. LOVE watching ice skating. I haven't been to a show in years. Hope they're coming to the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa.

    I'm not familiar with Shawn Sawyer but I've loved Kurt Browning since I was a little girl.

    P.S. Yes, we're both that old :)

  4. I LOVE VIRTUE AND MOIR AND I WOULD PAY SO MUCH MONEY TO SEE THEM LIVE.

    I was so obsessed with them the year they won Gold at the Olympics. Their free skate was the most gorgeous I've ever seen.

    I got to see Stars on Ice a few years ago and it was so much fun! I hope you loved it!

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…
