Ottawa Fashion Week!

I've been blogging for over four years, writing about everything from parenting to entertainment, so you must have figured out a few things about me by now.

Like the fact that I love my children more than anything in the world.

And the fact that I love summer and the ocean and swimming.

And the fact that I have am a huge shopaholic and get a high from trying on new dresses and buying new designer handbags and sunglasses.

Did I mention shopping and fashion and clothes and designer purses and sunglasses and shoes and department stores? Yes, I'm obsessed with everything fashion related.

And although Ottawa is not really comparable to New York City, we have a fashion week, too!

I'm been invited to attend and cover Ottawa Fashion Week, and I'm very excited to be taking part in all the glamour and fun.

Guess what? I have two day passs (for March 19th) to give away to two of my lucky readers! AND an extra pass to the invitation-only media launch party taking place on Thursday night!

I'm looking forward to attending the OFW launch party, which will be taking place in the newly renovated lounge, Lobby. The fashionable and sophisticated space will provide the fabulous backdrop to the ultimate fĂȘte of fashion here in Ottawa, with Cirque du Soleil like performers, champagne waterfalls, and hors d'oeuvres. Whether at the launch party, or at the actual event taking place at the National Gallery of Canada, you'll be rubbing elbows with foreign delegates, politicians, and socialites.

Ottawa Fashion Week is the most fashionable event in the city and you definitely don't want to miss out on the excitement.

Just leave me a comment below telling me where you love to shop and I will pick three names randomly tomorrow!

Mars Needs Moms Movie Giveaway!

Moms... can't live with them, can't live without them.

Turns out moms are not only much loved and needed here on earth, but on... Mars as well!

Mars Needs Mars is Disney's latest Digital 3D and IMAX 3D movie, produced by the same folks who brought us Disneys' A Christmas Carol and The Polar Express. Mars Needs Moms will take the entire family on a wild adventure through Mars!

Nine year old Milo finds out just how much he needs his mom when she's taken by Martians who want her 'mom-ness' for their own unruly children. (Can I borrow her, too?) He goes on a wild journey ride on a spaceship in his quest to save his mom... on Mars!

I am giving away a family four pass to Mars Needs Moms to one of my lucky readers!

The Mars Needs Moms premier takes place this Saturday March 5th at 10 am at SilverCity Gloucester!

If you're in the Ottawa area, just leave me a comment for a chance to win the family four pass.

Good Luck - I'll pick a winner randomly on Thursday, March 3rd!
