Erica will go live to take us through product picks at Sporting Life for this year’s trends in active, outdoor and everyday apparel, footwear, and accessories curated to inspire all women to live their Sporting Life.

We caught up with Erica to learn more about how she lives her Sporting Life, her suggestions for this season, and what part of hosting she’s most excited about.


Q: How do you find the time to get outside and stay active to live your Sporting Life?

ERICA: I’ve been going for walks daily – long walks all over the city – it’s been really nice especially since I moved last September to see and get to know my neighbourhood!

Q: What is your favourite “outdoor” thing to do?

ERICA: Depends on the season! In the summer I love to swim up at my cottage, go for hikes and play lawn games with family! Spring and fall I love to go for nature walks or hikes and in the winter, I love to snowshoe, downhill ski and cross-country ski!

Q: What’s one piece every person needs in their closet for active, outdoor and everyday?

ERICA: Technical clothing that is breathable and moister wicking are great for any kind of physical activity – footwear that provides support and agility is also key! For outdoor, a stylish but technical jacket that helps block wind and repel rain while still looking great at the same time. I love the athleisure look for everyday and stylish pieces that can be worn comfortably as loungewear but still have athletic capabilities that are required to take you through your day, whatever your day might look like!

Q: As someone who is always on the go, what are your top wardrobe tips and tricks?

ERICA: I think it’s important to buy pieces that can easily be mixed and matching to have your wardrobe work for you rather than the other way around.

Q: With such unpredictable Canadian weather in the spring, how do you prepare?

ERICA: Layers are key! The temperatures can rise and drop throughout any given day so it’s important to have options to layer, as well as technical fabrics to keep you cool, warm or dry depending on what Mother Nature throws at you!

Q: What’s your favourite part about hosting virtual shopping parties?

ERICA: Connecting with people! Even virtually it’s so much fun to help people find clothing and accessories that will not only assist in the success of their active lifestyles but also look and feel great wearing it!

Q: What can viewers look forward to when they tune in on May 5?

ERICA: I can’t give too much away because you’ll have to tune in but I’ll be sharing my top picks for spring from brands like The North Face, Arc’teryx, Nike, Patagonia and more! I’ll also be sharing a special discount code and details for an incredible giveaway of a $1,000 Sporting Life gift card, so you definitely don’t want to miss out.
