Batman VR at Fan Expo Canada – Be The Batman

batmanvr

I am so impressed with this game.  VR – Virtual Reality is something that I have loved since I initially tried it.  But seeing yourself in the mirror as Batman, moving your hand which is actually Batman’s is one of the most thrilling things I have every experiences in my entire life.

Warner Bros. was lovely in letting me try out the Batman Arkham VR game at Fan Expo.  I had 20 minutes to try out the demo.  It is truly an experience that will leave you with goosebumps – feeling emotionally connected to what is happening around you.

It starts with you talking to Alfred.  You are in front of a piano, trying to play it.  The following location is being on a platform being descended into the Batcave.  Although I knew in my right mind I was in Toronto at Fan Expo standing on solid ground I could not help but shake in fear as I descended to his lair.  Seeing the bats surround me and the scenery is so immersive you can’t help but believe it is really happening.

It is in the cave that you put on the Batsuit.  You also set up your weapons and scanner for the crime scenes you get to solve.  Not to brag but I was better than I thought I would be.  Though this could also be because it was demo mode.

I will say I was nervous yet excited of what it would be like to see the Joker in VR as the Batman.  Did not see him in the demo, but curious of course.

Batman VR will be launching on October 11th 2016 for Playstation VR.   My birthday is October 10th in case you were wondering😉

@Cirque du Soliel Toronto #Luzia

LUZIA

I have never seen a Cirque Du Soleil show before and after Luzia I don’t know why I waited so long. It takes you into a flight of a place where Mexico appears as if a dream.  With elements of light, rain and music, it is nearly impossible not  to fall in love with this stunning show.

Through acrobatic works, contortionists and poetic symbolism the culture is displayed as vibrantly as the colors that represent this beautiful place .  It will take you and your heart soaring.

As explained by Show Director Daniel Finzi Pasca “A fragment is like a pebble you

slip in your pocket, keep close to your heart and safeguard like a cherished

memory”.  And this show is a mosaic of many pebbles.

Never thought that music paired with a monarch butterfly and a horse could move me so much emotionally.

I was fortunate enough to also have a Media Backstage Tour with both some of the artists and the costume design team.   I even had a quick chat  with Luzia singer Majo Cornejo who talked to me about her love for the show, especially being from Mexico herself.

The costumes seeing them close-up were more beautiful and vivid than I could have imagined.

I know for sure while Luzia is still showing, I am going to see it at least one more time.  It is an experience you will want to share with the people you love.

  Watching Cirque Du Soleil – Luzia is pretty close to going to Mexico.  The sights, the sounds and the emotions are all there.

Hope you too get a chance to see this incredible show, and experience something like nothing else.

Best always,

Cottage Living with @MujiCanada #MujiToGo

#MujiToGo makes cottage travel easy and fun.

The team at Muji Canada was so kind to gift me with a Black Hard Case luggage.

Usually I am the kind of person to just take a large tote, or weekend bag – but I actually found it much more useful to pack in this beautiful creation.

Over the last few months I have started to learn and understand how to keep myself and my spaces more tidy.  While it is hard to get rid of stuff you’ve had, the feeling of a fresh and open space, there really is nothing like it.

Using a Muji product like their luggage – in it’s design it makes you think about the uses, and things you actually need.  I can guarantee that there is pretty much no way you will bring anything you don’t need .

With the amazing accessories and compartments, you also only will use the space you need when you need it.

Muji, while I am a new fan of the brand, it is easy to love.  Not just because of it’s simplicity but the reasonable prices and the effortless uses.

I am not always someone who travels, but every few weekends you will find me at the cottage. My parents have a lovely one and I usually need something to bring my clothes and everything else in.  It is so nice using a hard case from Muji because I know that even if everything moves around, my valuables in the Muji hard case will stay intact and in place.

Having used a neck rest before I was uneasy about trying it again.  Never found them half as comfortable as the one from Muji Canada.  I could literally fall asleep with it on my neck.  Also, it is made with the same beads from the Muji Bead Sofa so you know it will be perfect.

Whether you are taking a trip up north to the Cottage with friends, or travelling across Europe you will be so happy to have a Muji Luggage to accompany you through your travels.

Best always,

Melissa ❤

#MujiToRelaxCanada

If you are looking for the perfect piece from cottage to home to lounge in then the Muji Beads Sofa is for you  !

Muji6

I have always loved anything from Muji so I was thrilled for them to reach out to me.  I was lucky enough to visit the Head Office

Muji5

and meet the President of Muji Canada, Toru Akita.

Muji3

It was an incredible experience.  He is such a down to earth person and very passionate about this beautiful company.

Muji2

They later sent me a Muji Beads Sofa – I chose a grey beige colour.  Not only is it super comfortable to relax in for reading a book, but even I have nearly fell asleep in it.  What I love about it is that the material of the cover is made from the same as bathing suits.  You cannot get more durable.  But I have always loved their products.  From a bath sponge to stationary there products have always been great essentials for everyday living.

It is not your typical bean bag chair.  It is one you would love to have in your home.  When at the Head Office they said that it is a piece that friends, family and pets will want to use all the time.

I even love to use the app as well, while relaxing in my Muji Bead Sofa.  It is available for Android and iPhone.  All you have to do is put your finger on the camera lense of your phone.  It then chooses a music that will keep you calm.  You can download the app here.

You will soon be able to get a larger collection of beads sofa covers. Starting May 13, brand new beads sofa’s covers & 15% off on beads sofa and beads sofa’s cover!
