Event LOVE: #AhSeyOne A Reggae Insiders Musical Journey

Written by , Posted in Toronto, WorldWide

On Wednesday night, I found myself laughing, hugging, cheering, sipping on Brugal Rum cocktails, and jamming to some serious tunes by The Sattalites, Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene and Cookie Duster. Ah Sey One is part of the Sceneopolis TO event series, and was hosted by Cameron Bailey, who I’m told is  “reggae aficionado,” however most of you know him as the artistic director of the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF).

Sweet sweet reggae music!

It was truly an awesome evening, the Sattalites gave us a lesson on the basics of reggae music from ska to dancehall, and they even touched on how rhythms differ, dub technology and the context of every genre in between songs.

I don’t normally drink rum… BUT… I will gladly sip on some Brugral Rum!

There seemed to be an endless supply of delicious Jamaican inspired  food and drinks provided by Harlem Restaurant, I mean mini-rotis, jerk chicken quesadillas, sweet potato spring rolls… yum! But what’s good food without good drink? We sipped on tasty Brugal Rum cocktails while eating, and rocking the night away, t’was wonderful!

Love These!: React by Sof Sole Insole Line

Did you know that the average person creates over one million pounds of impact to their feet and legs by just walking one mile?! I didn’t, but now that I do I’m making more of an effort to reduce the impact of walking/running on my feet and legs. I recently received two pairs of React Airr Active and React Airr Support by React by Sof Sole, and immediately put them in my running shoes and in my walking shoes to test them out. I noticed the difference IMMEDIATELY. I was able to run longer while at the gym, as my feet were super comfortable, and I didn’t feel that sometimes irritating feeling I get in my feet, ankles and right knew. Magic! Even jump roping (which I love) has become much more enjoyable thanks to these bad boys!

IMG 20120820 142227 Love These!: React by Sof Sole Insole Line

Then I took them for a walk, and walked all over downtown for about 4 hours, and didn’t feel the need to sit down once, or jump on the next street car just so I could rest my feet. It was fantastic. No pain, no nothing. I’m in love.

IMG 20120820 142349 Love These!: React by Sof Sole Insole Line

So what makes these insoles so awesome? Well… they have an ergonomic design which accommodates all foot types and the air chamber and polymer gel technologies maximize performance, shock absorption, breathability and comfort.

The Goods:

  • Polymer Gel Forefoot: Absorbs shock and reduces pressure points during toe off while running of playing sports.
  • Polyurethane Foot Bed: Provides lightweight and durable comfort for the entire foot.
  • Encapsulated Air Chamber: Optimizes cushioning by decelerating impact forces on heel strike and rebounding on lift-off.
  • Contoured Heel and Arch: Designed for athletes with neutral to high arches.
  • Moisture Management: Proprietary technology wicks moisture away from the foot surface and keeps your feet cooler and dryer.

IMG 20120820 142312 Love These!: React by Sof Sole Insole Line

I’ve been wearing mine everywhere, and if I could put them in my heels I would… hmmm that’s an idea. If you’re looking to improve performance in the gym, when playing sports, or just want to make your walking a more pleasant experience; RUN to the nearest Foot Locker and get yourself a pair. Do it. The React Airr Active is available for men and women for $29.99 and the React Airr Support is #34.99, also available for men and women. Now go and get a pair. You’ll thank me later.

Thank you to Sof Sole for sharing this with us!

Event LOVE: @Burgundy_Brick Build the Future Benefit

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

IMG 20120826 230545 Event LOVE: @Burgundy Brick Build the Future Benefit

I went to the Burgundy Brick Foundation’s 5th “Build the Future” benefit this past Saturday. It was super refreshing to be at an event that was strictly for a good cause, and I was honoured and proud to be supporting the Burgundy Brick Foundation team in their efforts to break the cycle of poverty and to change the community. A lot of us get caught up in our own lives, and struggles (which is understandable cause life can get real tricky), and forget that there’s other people out there that don’t even have a place to call home, so it was good to take a few moments out of my own life and support a cause that looks to improve the lives and quality of living for other members of our community.
