Celebrating Mom at #roimomday @roirelations


Who believes Mom’s should be celebrated everyday of the year?? I do! We recently celebrated Mother’s Day at the third annual ROI Mother’s Day event. It was an indoor picnic with a Parisian theme; there were pretty flowers everywhere, delicious desserts , pink bubbly, a manicure station, a plate and flower crown making station, and so much more! This Mother’s Day event was especially special as ROI founders Delphine Nicholls and Sam Diamond  were both first time Mommies (they gave birth two days apart!) This was also the first time that ROI committed to featuring local, female entrepreneur vendors and sponsors, such as Crowns by Caleigh and Recreative Works by Renee Elliott.


They also worked with the charity Dress For Success Toronto, by accepting donations of gently used, professional clothing and unused hygienic/makeup products; in order to make it easier for disadvantaged women to join the workforce and showcase their self-confidence and economic independence.

@Reebok ZQuick TR shoes & ZQuick: Sportscar handling for your Feet

Yvonne and I received some great trainers from Reebok so we took them to the gym to break them in.  Yvonne received the Z Quick runner (pink) and I received the Z Quick Trainer (blue).

Inspired by hi-performance, Z-Rated tires, the Reebok ZQuick TR training shoe delivers sports car handling for your feet. The Z-Rated midsole foam offers great durability, the agile outsole imparts plenty of traction, and the metasplit flex grooves provide incredible control.

The shoes are great!  They are low to the ground so you get a minimalistic feeling.  The sole flexes significantly allowing your feet muscles to work during your training.  The shoes are very light and breathable which is great for a gym session.  Reebok has done a great job putting the laser cut rubber exoskeleton around the breathable mesh material to create a shoe that is light yet stable.


True fact I had someone come up to me during my workout and asked me how I liked them as he and his buddies were thinking of investing in a pair. I will be rotating these into my regular gym sneaker rotation!
