Hickies, collaborating with Shapeways (a 3D printing marketplace) and artists of the Pictoplasma design community is launching this new product called PUNGAS. They are 3D printed shoe accessories. They are easy to use, wearable on different parts of your sneakers, colourful, and the byproduct of an exclusive collaboration between Hickies and international artists.

"The release of PUNGAS has more than one purpose. We want to give our community a way to rethink their footwear and have fun in a creative and unconventional way. We also think that PUNGAS is living proof that 3D printing technology is changing the way we shop and produce," says Gaston Frydlewski, CEO and co-founder of Hickies.

Being a mid-top style, you may think it'll be a little heavy, however it's surprisingly pretty lightweight. I also really like the feature of the ortholite sockliner, the cushioning feeling on my feet feels so good! I'm wearing them almost everyday - very comfy! Captioned below each pic are some features and benefits. A side-note, Hi-Tec also makes great winter boots, check out my posting on them here.

Premium leather upper.

Vibram outsole for durability and traction.

My Experience from Spa Week at the Trump Hotel

Spa Week by Wayspa.com has come and gone. It happened April 21-27, an event that allowed you to enjoy luxurious full-service spa treatments at the finest spas across Canada for just $50. You can read more about Spa Week here.

This was my first time experiencing Spa Week. I decided to have my spa treatment at the Quartz Crystal Spa. Why? Well, because it was located at the 31st floor of the Trump International Hotel and Tower! What's more luxury than Trump?!

The treatment I got was called 'A Taste of Luxury', which included a 30 min back massage and a 30 min booster facial. As mentioned before, all the treatments during Spa Week are only $50. For this 60 min treatment, it was a saving of $130!

Another reason I chose to go to the Trump Hotel was that unlike many of the other places are the great amenities offering! The fitness centre, infinity lap pool, whirl pool and dry sauna. I arrived an hour early before my treatment just to take advantage of them! I got a tour and went for a swim in the Infinity Salt Water Lap Pool! It was so nice, swimming and overlooking the Toronto Skyscape!

Fitness Centre: Water, apples & towels - Help yourself : )

My view while I was on the treadmill

What can I say? I was very happy of my Spa Week experience! The Quartz Crystal Spa at the Trump Hotel was a luxury place, with great services and helpful staff! I really enjoyed my treatment. It was very relaxing, so relaxing I think I even dosed off during my facial, lol.
