Last summer I went to NY and visited the essence cosmetics office. I also met Justin Bieber w/ a bunch of beauty editors, nbd. On that trip I was given one of the matte lip colours as seen below and let me tell you, I have purchased several since then. It’s become my signature product. As a lover of red lips, this stuff is my staple. The best part, it’s under $5 at Shoppers! I’ve found the essence mascara to be a real steal too. I’ve been wearing it for months now.

ESSENCE GIVEAWAY DETAILS:

I’ve got a couple gift packs of the most recent BIEBER Collection. This would make a great gift for a young lady Bieber fan or anyone really. Who doesn’t love gifts?

How To Win:

Leave a comment on this post and let me know how long YOU have been reading CASIESTEWART.com. I’d love to know, even if it’s your first time! There are two prizes and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow and notify you Wednesday.

Thanks & have an awesome day!

I’m a huge fan of doing good and bring joy to the lives of others. So, this blog post is part of sharing greatness! My friends at 88Creative work with 155 Redpath and they are giving away brand new 16GB iPad Air! I’d love for one of you guys to win it. To celebrate the local community and do a little good along the way, they came up with #NeighbourGood.

What’s #NeighbourGood?

It’s a free coffee handed to you on your way to work, a good deed done on your lunch break, or a kind gesture from a stranger on your commute home. And at 155 Redpath, it’s our way of being a great neighbour to our future residents.

A few years ago (actually 2009!) about 10 friends and I organized Pay It it Backward Day where over 400 people purchased a coffee for the person BEHIND them in line. This broke a world record for the most acts of coffee kindness ever (at the time). It was an awesome example of NeighbourGood! It was super fun too. This is my sis (Raptors girl beside me) and some babes  that day. It was so much fun!

I’ve been going to the cottage in Muskoka almost every weekend since the start of May. I love it. Spent heaps of time in the car listening to tunes. My friend who works at KANETIX told me about a contest for $500! Um, yeah? They were inspired to find out what folks deem the ultimate summer driving playlist, so they reached out to me awesome blog friends to find out what our top summer driving songs are.

Kanetix is an online comparison site for insurance, mortgages and credit cards, recently commissioned a study to find out how music impacts your driving. As a member of CAA and young woman who drives, I was in.

VOTE FOR ME: HERE (Easy!)

Vote for your favourite playlist over on the KANETIX blog before August 23rd and you’ll be entered to WIN $500! The blogger whose playlist gets the most votes will not only get the glory, they’ll also get to take home $500. Yahoo!

Let’s hope we win big money! Love ya,

Justin Bieber and company with Charles Khabouth and Danny Soberano of INK Entertainment at Cabana Pool Bar Sunday, July 21

Too bad I didn’t stop by Cabana Pool Bar yesterday to see my boy JB and tell him about this great contest with his tour sponsor essence cosmetics! Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. On Twitter alone there were 125,923 estimated impressions from 62 Twitter mentions. Whoa mama!

Justin Bieber and Deadmau5 at Cabana Pool Bar on Sunday, July 21

I drew a random name this morning and the winner has been contacted. If you are wondering why I didn’t announce them publicly it’s because I learned from my work at MuchMusic that the Beliebers can get mighty angry about winning/losing a chance to see their idol and I want to protect them from any chance of bullying. (BTW shame on yourselves if that’s you!) You’ll know who it is on Thursday when they are Tweeting from the concert!

I can’t wait to see him in NYC. It’ll be great to get away for a few days and *hopefully* I’ll get that meet and greet the essence team mentioned! I will actually be my the third time I’ve seen him. I was the Social Media Manager of the MMVAs when he was there in 2010. NBD.  This is the dress I had made by Peach Berserk with his face on it along with other nominees.  Ahhh, memories…

I’ll see if I can give away any more tickets from the tour. No promises! Hope your day is going in the right direction. Sending positive vibes your way 🙂
