Toronto-Wide Scavenger Hunt from June 22 to July 31, 2015 #eskaquest

Eskaquest is back for its second year – inviting Torontonians to explore the city in a free, Toronto-wide scavenger hunt from June 22 to July 31. This summer, ESKA is teaming up with comedian and TV personality Daryn Jones to challenge Toronto to ‘Find ESKA’ for the chance to win tickets to the hottest events and summer attractions. Joining Daryn in Eskaquest is fellow MTV Live alumni Paul Lemieux and Sheena Snively, as well as Toronto lifestyle blogger Casie Stewart, Baby and Life blogger Yashy Murphy, and Indie 88 radio host Brent Albrecht.  Each week will feature a different host giveaway with a new prize.

Disclosure: I have not been compensated to share this post.  The opinions on this blog are my own.

Prizes will include tickets and passes to 11 unique summer experiences and events – from Osheaga Festival tickets to family friendly adventures like a stay at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel and wristbands to Slide The City. “This year’s edition of Eskaquest is instant gratification for participants,” says Kristin O’Meara, ESKA Brand Manager. “It’s a race to be the first to find the host and claim the prize – and you win. It’s that easy.” On July 18 look for ESKA and Sheena Snively at “Slide The City,” at Downsview Park. The 1000 foot slip-and-slide comes to Toronto for the first time with live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip-and-slide ever to hit asphalt. As part of Eskaquest, Snively will be giving away 10 VIP wristbands at Downsview Park to hook people up with the slide of their life!

There are two ways to get in the game and win: follow clues that ESKA releases on social media, or visit the official website to view the giveaway map (indicating the general area of the giveaway) and schedule. Finding the location is only half the challenge. Once a participant figures out a giveaway location, the hosts will make them work for the prize – they may be in disguise or run away from participants, inciting a chase. The first person to successfully track down the host wins the prize.

ALCATEL ONETOUCH Pop 7 and Idol 2 s Review and #Giveaway CAN 28/02


Have you heard of ALCATEL ONETOUCH?  ALCATEL ONETOUCH is a brand within TCL Communication, an international multicultural company which designs, develops, and markets globally a growing range of mobile and Internet devices. TCL Communication is a public company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (2618.HK) and part of TCL Corporation one of the largest consumer electronics companies in the world.


I was invited to review both the Idol 2 S and the Pop 7 tablet; I couldn’t have been more thrilled!  My daughter would get to try the smartphone, while I would try the tablet.


The Idol 2 S is a slim, stylish, and sexy phone, with a 5″ HD display!  This slim smartphone is only 7.4 mm thin, and has crisp and clear HD sound.  Surprisingly, it does have 4G LTE speed  Although it has an 8 Mpxl camera: in my opinion, the camera could be more sharp.  It’s fine for quick, fun selfies, and it does the job (as far as taking pictures); however, I do prefer a higher quality when it comes to my pictures; but, with an HD front camera, one finger zoom, and Wi-Fi display you are set to show off … it’s really all you need!  It takes 3 hours to charge and that will give you about 7 hours of talktime, and 400 hours of standby.  Find all the specs here.  This sexy little phone really made me fall in love with it.  I would highly recommend giving this baby a try Its simple design is both affordable, dependable, and has great quality.


The ALCATEL ONETOUCH Pop 7 tablet is a thin, light, 3G entry level tablet (8.9mm thin, and weighs 285 gr).  The 3G connectivity is fast (it surprised me!) and the WiFi mode allows you to connect easily on-the-go!  Personally, I think it’s the perfect tablet to take with you on your travels.  The camera isn’t the most crisp (2.0 Mpxl rear & 0.3 Mpxl front); however, other features make up for that … like 7″ display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system (upgradeable), upto 8 hour browsing time, 1 GB RAM memory, and dual core 1.3 GHz.  What more could you want for an entry level tablet?  ALCATEL ONETOUCH does have other options; this innovative company has a variety of tablets, phones, and accessories to choose from.


Guess what?  You can win these two devices right here (approx value $480)!  Don’t forget to show ALCATEL ONETOUCH some love by following them on social media …
