Front of The Line Turns 25! (+ contest)

8/26/2014

I live for concerts. There’s just something about listening to your favorite music live with a ton of people who love it too. Singing along at the top of your lungs with the magicians that crafted the soundtrack to your life. One of the major reasons I love American Express is their Front Of The Line program because it affords me and every other Cardmember early access to tickets to shows that I’m dying to see that would otherwise be sold out.  And not only to concerts, but to theater & comedy shows, exclusive dining experiences, movie premiers, cultural experiences and even NYFW!

Front Of The Line started right here in Toronto 25 years ago with a pre-sale of tickets for Phantom of the Opera. Since then millions of tickets have been sold making it the reason many people can’t live without their Amex. I recently got the opportunity to celebrate their 25 Anniversary with them at the John Legend concert at the Molson Amp. Myself and a collection of my fave bloggers and journalists gathered with the CEO of Amex , David Barnes and John May, President of Live Nation -Ontario Region – for cocktails and delicious snacks by Barque on a cool VIP patio as the sun set and then headed in to see John Legend belt out all of my favorites. And boy can he belt it out. His voice was pitch perfect. He moved seamlessly from hit to hit giving interesting asides like how he was turned down from 7 labels before getting signed and how he crafts every song by sitting at his piano and just mumbling words to a melody. I was in awe of how truly incredible his voice was, unassisted by auto tune or any other fancy equipment. That man is a true talent. The only thing that would have made the concert better was if his wife Chrissy popped out. Love. Her.

Snacks That Make You Feel Good! – The Indulgent Purist

8/25/2014

the-indulgent-purist

I don’t know about you, but I’m a snacker. The kind of girl that eats 3 smalls meals a day + 2 snacks (that’s my regimented routine during the week, after 5pm on Friday, well, that’s another story!)  Being constantly on the go requires a lot of food planning to make sure my choices stay healthy and it is not always easy.  When I heard that my friend Courtney was starting a new Vegan snack company, I was overly excited to taste her products.  I may or may not have had a few (too many) of her delicious treats, all in one testing session. But it was for research though…

Courtney like so many of us, ate everything under the moon until her body started reacting to what she was putting in it. Stomach issues, light headaches all while the doctor told her that she was perfectly healthy.  Courtney took the matter into her own hands and eliminated processed foods from her diet, started juicing, slowly but surely cut dairy and meat and only eating seafood occasionally. These new acquired eating habits were basically a game changer and long gone were those headaches and stomach issues.
