Special event in Toronto: Once Upon a Prom show on November 24th and 25th



We're shaking up the wedding and trade show industry as promised! Some of you may have seen my last article about change needed in the wedding industry and more! Well Once Upon a Prom is an example of that! Did you know that prom business in the US is over 4 Billion dollars and that Canada is 20% behind? We are introducing a new show concept by working with Dress Retailers and Suppliers in order to bring New Products to a relevant audience! We are showcasing 2018 Prom Collections in a Red Carpet themed fashion show and giving people a sneak peak of what is not in the store and presenting other dress designs our youth are searching for! We say, why wait until the New Year or spring and shop somewhere else! We help retailers by moving inventory faster and get what people want in their hands NOW! We are also keeping moms happy with age appropriate dresses for their tweens and giving them a day out with their kids! More importantly, we are keeping the one to one relationship building alive and supporting business here and giving hope to retailers. We have strategically chosen the time of the show based on the schools timeline for planning prom and are working with vendors who are doing business with the schools in order to reach principals, students, teachers, student councils, and prom committees. Our vendors simply receive more than a table and get the pre show and post show support they need in order to get the results they want to see!

A kick start to the Prom and Graduation Season for grade 8 students, high school, college, university, schools, teachers, and moms! Also vendors who provide a product of service that is prom related. A sneak peak at New 2018 Prom Dress Collections and Formal Wear! and right before the holidays!#onceuponapromshow

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok (2017)


      Sujit K Reddy Review:

    GOOD: HULK was awesome!
BAD: KORG was annoying!
UGLY: Editing was horrible!

  Jim Pagiamtzis Review:

  "Thor is a major thud!  He looses his hammer and get his hair cut (by someone very special) It was more a comedic adventure. The tow fight scene were good the editing very bad!   Expected more for the 3rd installment. 5 of 10 stars.

Movie Review: Justice League (2017)


     Sujit K Reddy Review:

GOOD: Superman's reveal scene was awesome! AND THE 2 END CREDIT SCENES WERE EPIC!
BAD: No Green Lantern (Corps) reveal
UGLY: The plot felt formulaic & rushed

  Jim Pagiamtzis

   "It was fantastic film!  The team get recruited quickly and the camaraderie between them grows. Superman man makes his appearance in a spectacular way with an amazing fight scenne. Epic ending follows with the Justic League working together to defeat Steppenwolf.  Stay and watcht the post end credits for an appearance by Lex Luthor. 7 of 10 stars"

      Movie Plot:

 Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
