Overlooked at The Kick & Push Festival

They say perspective is everything, and in the case of Overlooked this couldn’t be more true. I saw the play last week with The Kick & Push Festival here in Kingston from an extremely unique perspective – a back alley. No, there were no plush theatre seats, no lights, no microphones and not even a stage for that matter. The festival has gone above and beyond when it comes to creating theatre that is unique and fresh. The performance locations include intimate stage settings, historical towers and empty store fronts…

Beneath Our Feet at The Kick & Push Festival

It’s amazing how much can be said with no spoken words at all. That’s the awe I felt at the Grand Theatre last night after the opening performance of Beneath Our Feet. I actually had some misty tears in my eyes as I applauded the duo responsible for this spectacular and thought-provoking performance. I had to check this out as I spent some time in theatre school (read more About Anna) and am definitely a self-proclaimed theatre nerd. The show follows Aerialist Jane Kirby of Lowlit Aerial Arts as she…

Others were totally hilarious, like the time I met a French-Canadian woman on the beach in Mexico (that vacation: “Magnificent Manzanillo Mexico”) and she told me “always fight in the nude.” I won’t get into details about…

If you’ve been a loyal subscriber for quite some time now (you’re awesome, thank you), you may have noticed I don’t do these very often compared to some. I simply cannot stand giveaways and codes that are superficial, materialistic, and take 10 steps to partake in. I don’t like any of that complicated artificial stuff, and I’m sure you don’t either.…

How to Wear Necessary Neutrals

How do you know when spring has officially arrived? Some people notice the blooms and flowers, or the sunny blue skies. But for those of us who are fashion-obsessed (who, me?) it’s the clothes that make the season. I take one look at those lighter spring jackets, dresses and flats and am so excited to ditch the parka, tights and socks! As a Canadian living in a climate that can turn into an absolute tundra on a dime, I appreciate every blade of green grass tickling my toes. For me,…
