Kim Kardashian & A Microphone?I Don’t Think So.

I realize I've been lacking in the blog area, so I'm back to share some thoughts! I know you all missed me ;) 
Obviously our hundred thousand school assignments has been my priority, thank goodness we're done in April! yehaww, one month! 

I've been catching up on my celebrity gossip (in an attempt to procrastinate) and just came across a link to Princess Kim Kardashian's new song. Is she kidding me? While I will admit that E! popular show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" is a serious guilty pleasure of mine, THIS is taking it a little too far. She's gone from socialite to business woman to reality TV star to actress to playboy pin up to newly acclaimed singer? She's got to have the worlds best resume. But, let's be serious. That has to be the WORST song I have ever heard. Not to mention, she's 30 and can't even handle a man, let alone a random singing career. Thanks Hollywood, we get it, Kim's a Kardashian! Please stop punishing us.

Maybe you'll enjoy this more than I did, but if you're not tone deaf, then I highly doubt you will.

Getting Married? Need a Photographer? Here’s Your Guy!

            This is Lucas Shaughnessy, of  FOTO FLARE PHOTOGRAPHY



Lucas was our Wedding Photographer and let me tell you, he did an incredible job with our photos! If you’re the kind of couple looking to stray away from the traditional type wedding photographs, then Lucas’s off-beat style will fit your needs perfectly!

Lucas use’s a photojournalistic approach combined with fashion and style to capture unique, artistic and dynamic photographs from all walks of life, including:

· the love of a newly engaged couple
· a spectacular wedding
· the warmth & glow of a pregnant mother
· a newborn baby a few days after birth
· a family portrait

Working behind the lens for five years now, he has certainly mastered his craft! Nick and I couldn’t be more pleased with our wedding albums and prints. Lucas went out of his way to get to know us as a couple, foster a relationship and make us comfortable in front of the lens on our big day! He started off as our photographer, and ended as our friend.

Lucas’s studio is located at 302A Brucedale Avenue in Hamilton, Ontario, but do not fear: he is NOT opposed to travelling to your wedding destination!

He has travelled to Toronto, Kitchener, Guelph, Niagara, GTA, Cambridge, Oakville & most of Southern Ontario! He was most recently in Huntsville for a wedding, and will be heading to P.E.I in the near future for another one! What can he say? He’s in demand!

Make sure to visit his website at, read the Raves, check out the albums on the Blog and leave your comments, feedback and vote for your favourite images! Better yet, give him a call to book your consultation and get to know one of the best photographers around.

And, not to brag, but check out our wedding album while you’re there because…..well…’s totally kickass. You’ll see why Foto Flare is a MUST HAVE for your wedding photography!

Turn Your Idea into A Dream Come True!!

Ideas. We ALL have them. We see new products on the market every day. Sometimes we even look at things, and wonder....geeze, why didn't I think of that? Truth is, you probably did, only you were too embarrassed to share or just didn't quite know what to do with it, so you pushed it to the back of your mind and watched it fade away!

Well, NOW you have the chance to share those ideas & get yourself out there!!

On Tuesday, January 25th you will be given the chance to change the world!  The location is The Ron Joyce Centre in Burlington where Trivaris will host its fourth annual Innovation Night.  Here, idea sharing is the name of the game.

Idea sharers are welcome to come out and share their ideas in a public forum buzzing with positivity and constructive feedback from people who can help direct you in the right path to start to see your dreams take flight.  The first step is to share.  Be Bold! Dare to Dream!

Signing up is easy.  All you need to do is contact Elaine Holding at 905-633-6354, or Cindy Porter 905-332-5433 ext. 205, , to be put on the list.  Space is limited and it’s first come first serve.  What are you waiting for?  It’s just a click or a phone call away!

Not sure if you want to share?  Then come out and support those who do.  See what the evening is all about and who year might be your year.

Every big company and successful business started out with JUST an idea. An idea is only the first step on the road to success. Facebook, Booster Juice, Google, Tim Hortons: it took ONE person to share their idea with others, and now look where these companies are at!

If they can do it, why can't you?
