I was recently interviewed for thenoteworthys.co, a Canadian site you’ll find a carefully curated collection of unique, high-quality, often hand-made items by emerging designers. They love to take you behind the scenes (BTS) to learn about inspiration and workmanship behind designers they feature. They also like to feature people like ME.

Being ‘Noteworthy’ means following your passion in creating a life you love living. Now THAT is something I am totally down with! I can agree, being Noteworthy “ means taking a leap to of faith to follow your dreams.

Whether you’re a recent grad or mid-career, each stage of your life calls for some money management. Something I know I can always use help with!

It’s Financial Planning Week here in Canada (November 16-20) and  TD has launched an Savvy Saver Quiz, to help you understand your personal finances. By answering a few quick questions, TD will help you determine your financial stage and what considerations you should be making at this point in your life.

TD Savvy Saver Quiz - Are Your Finances on Track? @casiestewart @tdcanada

After going to college (Marketing @ Conestoga) and university in Australia (10 years, where did the time go!) I had a sizeable debt to tackle and I wasn’t really sure how I was going to manage it. I consulted a financial planner and put a plan in place. My hard work paid off and my debt was replayed by the time I was 30. Words can’t explain the joy I felt opening a letter stating it was done. Going to school overseas was a pricy but I wouldn’t change that experience. Living at Bondi Beach was a DREAM!

Not sure where to start? Take the TD Savvy Saver quiz to help figure out your current situation and where you need to be. By answering a few multiple choice questions, you can determine what stage you’re at financially, considerations you should be making, and find tips and advice to help you along the way. I’m in the stage where I’m getting all my financials sorted but buying a new house and family are on my radar. ☺️

If you’re keen to learn more about making your financial future positive, check out tdcanadatrust.com or my previous posts with TD on Planning for Life’s Unexpected Moments and Money Tips for Millennials.

I spent a good chunk of time watching entries for the Doritos Crash the SuperBowl and this is one of my favs. The Doritos contest is back and I would love to see one of my friends submit a commercial and Crash Super Bowl 50. SUBMISSIONS END IN 16 DAYS.

My fav part of the SuperBowl has always been the advertising and my friends at Doritos Canada asked me to share some info about the LAST Crash’ the SuperBowl Contest. Last year, Canadian Graham Talbot (and his twin bro) created a Doritos commercial, “When Pigs Fly,” that aired during Super Bowl XLIX. He also took home a $50,000 USD prize and was the first winner outside the US. YASSS CANADA.

Over the past nine years PepsiCo’s Doritos brand has given away more than $7M USD in prize money and helped launch careers by hooking winners up with once in a lifetime job opportunities. This year marks the 10th and final year of the Doritos Crash The Super Bowl contest.

The winner not only gets to attend to the Super Bowl (50th annual and in San Fran, love that city!) to see their commercial air, but $1MM USD and the opportunity to work with Zack Snyder who recently directed Batman VS Superman.

1 MILLION DOLLARS. 😎

At the crashthesuperbowl.doritos.com/toolkit you’ll find a whole suite of assets to help make your creative dream come true, sound effects, music, product shots, end cards, logos, etc.

  1. Make a video – 30 second brand commercial for Doritos
  2. Submit – by November 15th, 2015
  3. Vote – starting January 5th, 2016

This year, three finalists will attend the SuperBowl and watch the game in a suite and find out with the world who is the winner.  The grand prize winner will take home $1MM USD and the opp to work w/ Zack Snyder & Warner Bros. The two runner-ups will each be awarded a $100,000 USD prize. If a Canadian did well last year I have confidence that we can do it again. Canada is home to some of best talent out there.
