Sony Dealer Show 2015

Last week, I was lucky enough to attend the Sony Dealer Show which was held in Toronto.  Every year, Sony Canada hosts a show for their dealers to highlight their products for the year. It was exciting to touch and try Sony's latest innovative products that are pushing the boundaries of technology. They had an array of speakers, cameras, video cameras, TV's and much much more.
Here is a peek at some of my favourites:

I would have to say the super-slim, 4K Ultra HD TV was the highlight of the show. It was the first thing you saw as soon as you walked in the door. At only 4.9mm., it's thinner than most smartphones. It's like a piece of art.
It offers 4 times the clarity of regular HD in Sony's thinnest LED TV, and is available in 2 sizes- 55'' and 65''. It's equipped with Android TV with Google Cast as well as the ability to stream Playstation games right to your television.
Release date is June and the price is TBA

Isn't that unbelievable? 

I love these cube and ball bluetooth speakers. They also incorporate NFC in them as well which means you can just tap your phone to it, and it will basically start playing the music you have downloaded to your phone. Both speakers have a new feature called  “Speaker add” which enables you to join the two speakers with the push of a button to provide surround sound. They come in a variety of different colours and they have a battery life up to 12 hours.
The ball shape ones are also water resistant and have a built- in microphone and handsfree calls! I will definitely be purchasing one of these!!
The cubes retail for $79.99 and the balls retail for $99.99

These Sony QX Lens Cameras turn your smartphone into a DSLR-like quality camera. You can shoot images from your screen which save to both your camera and phone. You can even use apps to edit and share photos instantly online. What I love most about these is that they detach easily and can be put in your purse or suitcase if you are traveling.
They are available online at for $199.99 and $449.99CAD

POV Action Cam is pretty neat. It's advanced image stabilization adjusts to vibration and it's splash resistant. It has built-in stereo mic for quality sound with wind noise reduction.
Action cams start at $249 and they are also available at



α6000 Mirrorless Interchangeable-lens Camera features the world’s fastest autofocus (0.06 seconds). What I love about this camera is that its super-compact. It's about half the size and weight of a typical DSLR which I found really important to me as a blogger. I don't want to be carrying a heavy camera.
Another great thing about this camera is that it has Wi-Fi capability and NFC (near field communication) technology.

I love this Sony HD Camcorder. It's got a built-in projector and is compatible with Highlight Movie Maker to create quick highlight videos for social media sharing. It's a perfect size and it's very lightweight. It's available online at for $399.99.

All of these products are a great option for Mother's Day or even Father's Day which is coming up fast. I know I need a new camera ASAP, so that will definitely be on my list, lol!

It's Spring! Time to break out the Faux Leather Jackets!

I was excited to put away my winter coats. It was such a long and depressing winter. Since spring has finally sprung, I was happy to pull out my faux leather jackets.
 The grey faux leather jacket that I am wearing is from Forever 21 that I purchased last fall. The brown one is from Target that I purchased right before they closed last month. I am still so sad Target is gone :(
Both of these jackets are great for a date night or lunch with friends. They are light weight, fitted, and both colours go with so many shirts and pants that I own.
Here are some more of my favourite faux leather jackets:

Forever 21- Faux Leather Biker Jacket CAD $45.90   
Forever 21- Quilted Faux Leather Moto Jacket  CAD $45.90  
 Dynamite- Suede And Faux Leather Indoor Jacket $59.95
Suzy Shier- Perforated faux leather jacket $55.00
Hope you had a great weekend!

Crab Wontons!

I haven't shared a recipe on my blog as of yet, so I thought I would share this one. It's one of my favourites! I love crab and when I came across this recipe around Christmas time, I was all over it. I made it once, and I was hooked!
It's super easy and fast to make which is always a bonus.
 I have changed it up a bit from the original version that I have which I am finding a lot better, so here it is. Enjoy!
Here is how to make them:
1 Can ( 6 ozs) of white crabmeat drained, flaked
1 Package ( 8 ozs) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Softened

1/4 cup of sliced green onions

1 tablespoon of Mayo

24 Wonton wrappers


PREHEAT Oven to 350F.

Mix crabmeat, cream cheese, green onions and mayo all together.

Spray two - 12 muffin cups trays with cooking spray. Place 1 wonton wrapper in each cup. Let the edges of the wrappers drape over the sides of the cups.

Fill each wrapper with the crabmeat mixture.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown and filling is hot.
