My Review of Lady Gaga’s #ARTBIRTH

My Review of Lady Gaga’s #ARTBIRTH I recently went to see the acclaimed lady gaga impersonator, Athena Reich perform #ARTBIRTH – under the guise of the directorial greatness of Sara Schwartz Geller Productions. This is no ordinary production, Athena puts on a fantastic spectacle of singing and dancing that rivals Lady Gaga’s own showmanship. Athena’s voice is pitch perfect and her athleticism is something to aspire towards (yet most of us fail to do so :-)). The back-up dancers […]

My Review of Chefs Plate’s Meals (Week of June 26, 2017)

My Review of Chefs Plate’s Meals (Week of June 26, 2017): I have three words for this testimonial: Fresh, Easy and Delicious. Those three words effectively sum up my experience using Chefs Plate’s services. I opened up the door and found a big brown box filled with various fresh Ontario-grown produce, pesticide and hormone free meat (chicken and beef) and sustainably sourced fish (Tilapia). It was like opening up presents on Christmas Day (or in my case, Hanukkah […]

My Review of Rexall Drugstore’s Nosh & Co. (Crunchy Munchy) Product Line!!

My Review of Rexall Drugstore’s Nosh & Co. (Crunchy Munchy) product line: I love when organizations send me food to review. I especially love when the products are SNACKS! I mean who doesn’t love snacks?!! I basically hid in an upstairs room to open the basket. I know my kids (and my husband for that matter) would have devoured the items in ten seconds flat. I knew I had to take cover and peel the layers back slowly […]

My Review of Mary Macleod’s Shortbread Cookies!!

My Review of Mary Macleod’s Shortbread Cookies: I know it’s a hard job eating amazing things so when I was presented with the idea of trying shortbread cookies and their butterscotch bars, I jumped *make that* devoured the opportunity to do so. Here’s my take:   First of all, presentation is EVERYTHING when trying new things. The cookies were in a clear, decorative container. They contained their most popular flavours including: Maple Crunch,  Chocolate Crunch, Dutch Chocolate and Traditional. Each […]

My Review of Shaolin Warriors – Sony Centre for the Performing Arts

My husband and I (and a few friends) went to see Shaolin Warriors at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. For those of you that don’t know, Shaolin Warriors are a group of skilled kung-fu masters who put on an exhilarating show highlighting qigong, animal imitation boxing, drunken boxing artistry among others.   The beginning was beautifully choreographed. The scenery and the music overall was phenomenal. It felt as though we were transported […]

The lights went down, the music began and my […]

My Review of James and the Giant Peach – A Young People’s Theatre Production

From the moment we arrived to Young People’s Theatre till the show was over we were truly mesmerized. Incredible set design (colourful/animated); super interactive storyline (poignant and realistic); and truly an unbelievable cast (Spiker and Sponge amongst the others). We (the audience) really felt for James and followed his trials and tribulations on the edge of our seats. While some may find the elements within the production “dark” (the death of his parents), […]

My Review of Cirque Éloize Cirkopolis – Sony Centre for Performing Arts

My review of Cirque Éloize Cirkopolis begins where fantasy meets reality – a truly epic performance by a cast of gifted acrobats:   A remarkable production that involved characters blending into the audience (at the beginning of the show) to the use of slapstick humour in getting the audience to participate. I loved it all. I really did. The music was INCREDIBLE because it was in tune with the movements of the […]

My LEGOLAND Experience

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre: I took my family to LEGOLAND and it was an amazing experience!!

I liked how the play zone was monitored and kids could truly be free to roam and have fun. The Kingdom Quest ride was super fun […]

My REPTILIA Experience

My REPTILIA Experience Reptilia is truly a large, interactive experience. My family was excited to go and visit and it didn’t disappoint. My kids (4.5 and 3) loved the snakes (obviously) and the alligators. The space itself was large but not overwhelming in terms of the number of displays. The tucked away playground was fun and my kids spent some time going through the tunnels and down the slides. We particularly enjoyed the live show […]

My E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Film with LIVE Orchestra EXPERIENCE

My E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Film with LIVE Orchestra EXPERIENCE: This pre-NYE showing of E.T. backed up by a LIVE orchestra was truly an out of body experience. The film itself in pristine condition brought back positive childhood memories for both my husband and I. The orchestra was phenomenal – never missing a note or beat. The conductor was humourous and an absolute professional. It was truly an incredible experience to watch a film of this […]
