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!

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. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
