My Silver Medal Moment

Hosted by ZICO Coconut Water, featuring Jock Yoga, a secret location  – plus an Olympic Medalist Athlete…

Talk about my kind of an event!

Thanks to ZICO Coconut Water and Environics PR, I had the pleasure of joining the City’s top media and PR peeps for an evening Jock Yoga class led by my friend and dynamo Michael De Corte, with special guest  Olympic Ski Cross Silver Medalist, Kelsey Serwa.

Kelsey and AureaMichael Jock YogaWith yoga mats ready and lots of chilled ZICO coconut waters to enjoy, the event kicked-off with a meet and greet with Kelsey – just back from Sochi, still riding the Olympic fever high.

Along with sharing some of the favourite Olympic moments – she let us hold her brilliant (and heavy) silver medal.  Surreal!

Down on our mats and ready for some Jock Yoga, Michael did a stellar job leading us through a somewhat intensive class. Our arms hurt in places and our legs definitely felt the burn, but we were all the stronger (and happier) once finished! Thanks Michael.

And thank you ZICO and Environics PR for all the work you put in to making this event a success :).

Zico smoothieFor a delicious smoothie idea, try adding chocolate flavoured ZICO, almond milk, banana and almond butter. Blend and enjoy!

Until next time…


Focal Upright dream desk

The future of workstations is here! Made by Focal Upright Furniture, it’s called the Locus desk and I can hardly wait to get my tush on one.  Finally, a desk for those who absolutely cringe at the amount of hunched-over, bun-flatteningscreen-time we do each and every day.


Truth be told, sitting has to be one of the worst (worst!) things we can do for our health. What’s more, we’ve completely lost touch when it comes to movement, exercise and balance. Instead of walking, we’ll drive. Instead of the stairs, we’ll take the elevator.  But heaven forbid we miss our cardio-racing spin classes, thinking it’s all we need for the day.  So not true.

I’m not suggesting this desk is going to solve our movement-crisis, but thanks to its innovative design, it will definitely improve our body’s positioning while we work, putting less stress on our back, shoulders and neck.  Not to mention keep us upright and alert – which oddly enough, we humans were designed to be.

Oh, may every company out there embrace this workstation innovation! Especially the company I should be so fortunate to work for next.  #Jobsearch #Marketing/PR  #ReadyAsEver.

Until next time…

Pop Phone

For years, I’ve longed for a radiation-reducing device for my cell phone.  Well, I found my answer – and hello callers! It’s pretty sweet.

Made by Native Union, the Pop Phone is essentially the old handset many of us grew-up using, and can now use again – thanks to its easy application.  Simply plug the cord into your cell phone, iPad, etc., hit a button and talk-away!

I’ve been using mine for days now, and love it.  The sound quality is perfect, much better than any ear piece I’ve tried. Not to mention it comes in a variety of fun colours including  gold, red, pink and orange.  (I bought black, but I’m already itching for pink!)

And wouldn’t you know the celebs are on to it too -including Daniel Craig, Sarah Jessica Parker and Demi Moore – all spotted using a Pop Phone.

I bought mine ($45) at The Bay (on Queen), however you can order the Pop Phone online too.

No adaptor required for most phones – including the Blackberry Torch and iPhone.

Now if only the Pop Phone could cut my cell phone bills too…!

Until next time.
