I Did A Thing: CRB Live In Green, Commercials x2

A couple weeks ago I was on set with Yellow Pages Next Home to shoot 2 web commercials for the CRB (Certified Rental Building) program. They’re out and the campaign is live at crbliveingreen.ca.

   

     Please take note of the humour, I don’t ACTUALLY brush my teeth with dish soap or cook hot dogs with on candles. The top video in pink with the hanging clothes is my fav. We had a lot of laughs shooting these!

Water Consumption – Save more water than me?

The stuff on my face is a clay mask, Rock & Roll Suicide Face Scrub by Triumph & Disaster in New Zealand. My face was SO soft after wearing it for the shoot.

Energy Savings – Save more energy than me?

Thanks Michelle Daides from MD Media for casting me! For more info about the CRB program, upcoming events, and how you can score an Apple watch, visit crbliveingreen.ca.

My New Friend from France, Polette Eyewear

Polette Eyewear, Casie Stewart, blogger

Eyewear have always been a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve always had a large variety of costume glasses of different shapes and sizes. I’d much rather have a bunch of affordable styles instead of one or two fancy ones.  I like variety but I’ve also been known to lose and break them (unfortunately!).

Polette Eyewear, Casie Stewart, blogger

Late last year I was contacted by Polette eyewear in France and offered a spot on their blogger team. In exchange for sharing my fav glasses from the site, I get to pick a couple pairs EACH MONTH.  Perks of the job guys, squeeee! I can’t wait to stock up and share new shades every couple weeks.

My First Polette Eyewear Order: 

  • Devil – rose coloured lenses
  • Léosummer – yellow/green fashion lenses
  • Gracie Mile B – blue/black lenses

Polette Eyewear, Casie Stewart, blogger

Polette has a pretty neat story. Founded by Pierre Wizman, a young entrepreneur at 16, he launched the website in 2011 with his biz partner and just like that, they were in business. Their goal was to be the only intermediary between the consumer and manufacturer to cut down on price without skimping on quality.  When you visit polette.com you’ll see there’s a wide selection of styles starting at $6.99.

One of the cool things about placing your order is first you pick the frame, then lenses (anti-scratch, reflective), then lens tint (ex. red/black), and finally tint level (red ones above are 85%). I didn’t really understand this at first but I know for next time now!

Polette Eyewear, Casie Stewart, blogger

I’ll be posting my new glasses monthly as they arrive. Would you like a pair too? It’s been ages since I did a contest so enter below and we’ll send you your choice of glasses including prescription if you need them (mine are not prescription). Contest doesn’t include Vintage or L’Atelier collections.

BONNE CHANCE!

Events | Romance Anyone? Toronto Sex Show

Loving this remix of Tove Lo’s ‘Stay High. I put all the recent songs from my Shazam (music discovery app) and put them in an Rdio playlist. You can check it out here.

“I eat my dinner in my bathtub, Then I go to sex clubs, Watching freaky people gettin’ it on, It doesn’t make me nervous, If anything I’m restless, Yeah, I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all”

Next weekend I’m going to The Everything To Do With Sex Show for my first time even thought it’s been in Toronto for 15 years. The three day event runs October 24th-26th at The Direct Energy Centre and features all kinds of seminars, art, wellness, celebrities, and other fun stuff to do with sex and romance.

It’s a great time of year for this show because we’re about to start hibernation and if we have a winter like last year, we’ll all be spending heaps of time at home. And hopefully not alone!

I creeped the event website and found this group of cool peeps I can vouch for that are worth checking out at the show:

Other things I reco checking out are burlesque, the leather, latex, and the exhibitor floor. I’m not sure if you have ever worn a latex outfit but if you have you know how amazing it is. I used to have a gorgeous long latex shirt but it ripped. These are a few of my fav Gaga latex outfits.

Tickets to attend the show are available online or at the door and range from $20-$35. Show sponsors include Cupid Boutique, Lovedreamer.com, Love Shop, We-Vibe, Blow Vapor, Club Pro A.E., Cam4, and Monde Osé.

Wanna go? I’ve got two tickets up for grabs. I reckon it’d be a great date, fun afternoon w/ your bff, or a way to spice up your relationship. There’s always new things out there!

Contest closes Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014. Winner will be notified by email. Good luck and maybe I will see you there!

Travel | Savour the Taste of Montreal w/ MTL à TABLE

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Montreal with their tourism board to learn about their upcoming food festival, MTL à TABLE. I had an awesome time discovering their culinary scene, meeting other bloggers/media, and being back in my second fav Canadian city. This is part one of my experience.

Scroll down to see what I got up to and get details on how YOU can win a round trip, including airfare to Montreal to experience MTL à TABLE for yourself!

MY MTL à TABLE EXPERIENCE – Part One

I arrived at Renard Artisan Bistro at 9am to greet Chef Jason Nelson and my blogger partner in crime Jason from shutupandeat.ca. After visiting the smallest coffee shop in all of Montreal and we decided to venture 45min outside the city to get local meat, wine, and cheese, a trip Chef often takes on Sunday afternoons.

It was about 10am when we did a wine tasting at Vignoble Vertefeuille. I loved being at the farm. The air was fresh and the wine was good. Not a bad start to the day! Chef gets chicken, rabbit and wine from the farm on a regular basis.

Our next stop was Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs where we sampled cheese and said hello to the animals. It was my first time at a fromagerie and I have never tasted cheese so delicious!

This award winning fromagerie is one of very few in Quebec that uses raw unpasturized milk to make the cheese. It was DELICIOUS!

Love this beautiful lady.

We had heaps of laughs on the way back to the city where blogger Jason from shutupandeat.ca and I met up with the other bloggers for lunch.

Later in the day I really got my hands dirty prepping dinner. And by dirty I mean I got blood on my hands! This is the blood used for blood pudding. I tried not to think about it too much. Look at my crazy face, ahhhh!
