New Balance Sneak Preview 2015


New Balance Canada was giving the media a sneak preview of what’s coming for its brand in 2015 at Madonna’s very own Hard Candy Fitness Toronto. There were different types of shoes categories for die-hard runners, semi runners, normal runners or wannabe runners such as myself who just want to wear stylish kicks on the red carpet (LOL).

Other than kicks, there were apparels for men and women. New Balance staff introduced us the latest kicks design, materials and the technology that were being applied in various types of shoes. All these improved elements provided the right balance for their customers who are looking for a balance of style, comfort, foot protection and usability.


What I love New Balance most are the choices of funky colours which you know by now that MoVernie is really out there, who ain’t afraid to wear something that stands out. There are so many choices and so many nice kicks that it will be tough for me to narrow to just one. Tough choices! Be sure to check out the New Balance Canada website here to purchase the apparel and kicks that fits your needs and lifestyle!


Thank you to New Balance Canada & Strut Entertainment for having me at the #NBPreview2015!

She has opened up her fitness franchise in places such as Berlin (Germany), Rome (Italy) & Moscow (Russia) and other places not including the United States. It’s quite interesting of her choice of locations, not the United States, but Toronto, why? Apparently, Toronto is Madonna’s top choice as she feels a strong affinity and being loved by the fans whenever she comes to Toronto for her world tour. Continue reading

Chinchilla – What is it?


Do you know what a chinchilla is? I didn’t know anything about it either until a few days ago, I went to my friend’s house and in the basement, there were two chinchillas, each in their own cage. The first moment I saw them, my eyes grew so big, they were super adorable, cute looking, furry comfy fur. But I couldn’t pinpoint exactly what they were. Are they related to a rabbit? Are they elated to a rat? Or are they related to a squirrel?

So, I decided to go to Wikipedia to find out. These are the exact words from Wikipedia’s definition, “Chinchillas are crepuscular (most active around dawn and dusk) rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South Americaand live in colonies called “herds” at high altitudes up to 4,270 metres (14,000 ft).”

Apparently, chinchilla are relatively low-maintenance animals. They can instinctively clean their fur by taking dust baths, in which they roll around in special dust made of fine pumice. Due to their thick fur, they don’t need to shower in water. In fact, they need to dry quickly with a non-heat blow dryer to dry out the water. Or else, the condensation will form fungus growth or fur rot because their dense furs can’t dissipate the water. They also need some teeth exercise which means they need to eat apples or other birch wood to keep their teeth sharp and in good length because if their teeth are overly grown and not being exercised, they lost their biting abilities.

Overall, it’s a good low-mainteance pet. It is mainly very quiet and you don’t have to bathe them as mentioned above. They just need some occasional running around the basement to keep them active.

But honestly, I have no time even for low-maintenance chinchilla. I guess I will just to go my friend’s place to cuddle the comfortable fur and play with them whenever I could. I thank my friend because I wouldn’t know such cute animals existed on this planet if I didn’t see the pets first hand!
