Taylor James is that you?…

21 Jun

Was just watching a video of Ke$ha performing her hit song “Tik Tok” during rehearsals for the 2010 MMVA’s (Much Music Video Awards) in Toronto and noticed a familiar Vancouver dancer… ex “So You Think You Can Dance Canada” contestant, Taylor James workin’ it in the background. The video is a bit blurry, can anyone confirm that this is him?! Looks like it to me! COOL!

New Larabar flavours!

20 Jun

I am so excited! My favourite bars in the world, Larabars, is about to launch some amazing new flavours this summer. Carrot Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chip Brownie.

The best thing about these bars, is that they are raw, all fruit and nuts and no sugar added and they taste AMAZING. I was once lucky enough to run in to one of the owners of Larabars who sent me TWO FREE CASES! I was very satisfied and ate them way too quickly! You can buy Larabars all over the place around town. Capers, Whole Foods and Choices are all good places to pic them up!

The new flavours wont be popping up in to stores until the summer, but you can order them online at www.larabarstore.com. Enter the promo code LARNEW10 and you can receive 15% off of the new flavors from June 15th – July 15th.

Diamonds in the rough dancing their way on to MTV

18 Jun

One of the hottest all female dance crews in Vancouver, Diamonds in the Rough, have put out a video pitch of their proposed show “The Diamond Life” to MTV and have posted it up on You Tube. These girls are SICK I don’t know if you have seen them perform around town, but they are definitely the hottest dancers in the city and among some of the best in Canada. The crew is made up of Natasha Gorrie, Darylle Johnson, Carlena Britch, Teya Wild, Jane Marlinga, Darylle Johnson, Carmen De Los Santos, Mae Calinisan, Lisa Metz, Devyn Dalton, and Eileen Flormata.

In order for them to reach MTV they need as many You Tube hits as possible and need to show MTV that they have what it takes to get the ratings in. I know for sure that I would watch. I am already a huge fan of these girls and would love to tune in each week to watch!

Take a look at the video:

Check out this interview with the girls from www.justalilhype.com to learn more: http://ow.ly/205ZP

KEEP WATCHING AND SPREAD THE WORD! They are amazing! Watch for yourself!

First Aid Kit at the Media Club- June 6th

10 Jun

A little late posting this but I just had to get it up. What an amazing show. If you weren’t there make sure you get to the next one.

When I arrived to the Media Club I was SO excited to see the amazingly talented sisters from Sweden, First Aid Kit. Having watched numerous You Tube videos and listened to the CD a thousand times. I knew I was about to be blown away.  When I got there there weren’t many people there which meant I was guaranteed to be front row. People started sitting on the ground of the venue which I thought was pretty cool. It felt like we were in someone’s basement and a friend’s band was about to play.Starting off with the first song off their latest album, The Big Black and the Blue “In the Morning” I was in awe the whole time. I was right up front as their perfect voices took me to another place! It was amazing!

I took this video on my iphone so it’s not the best, but I LOVE this cover of the Fleet Foxes “peasant song”.

Enjoy!
