Muskoka Living: Lake, Boat, Babes, Dock, Drinks #cottagelife

Spent the weekend at the cottage and went to WayHome Music Festival. There was NO WAY I was camping the festival grounds.  We had absolutely BEAUTIFUL weather.  I know it’s only Monday but I really can’t wait to get back up there.

We had a nice brunch on Saturday at the Muskoka Inn. Sean in my glasses 🙂 Totally my MCM!

Next weekend we’re seeing The Trews at The Kee to Bala.

Stopped by the Balacade to play some games.

“If you think romance is dead and gone
Find an old jukebox full of 45’s
Pop a nickel in it and it all comes back to me”

This grandma totally creeps me out. 

We went to get groceries and saw a cowboy who decided to ride his HORSE to the store. I love the country!   

Hannah, Emily, and I had a girls party at the lake in the afternoon.

 
  

On Sunday we went to WayHome but it was SO HOT OUT. After walking around for a bit and seeing Weaves, The Sheepdogs, and checking out the Etsy shop, we went back to the cottage and jumped in the lake. Feeling today like I might have a bit of heat stroke.


Next week we’re up at the cottage for a while. I can’t wait! Counting down the days. This week will be a good one, it’s going to be hot and SUNNY till Sunday.

Tomorrow night I’m heading to the Island Yacht Club for a little party. Who knows what else the week will bring!

Thomas Sabo AW ’15 Press Cocktail: LoveBridge + #CharmClub10

Last week I went to a beautiful event at Malaparte in side the TIFF Bell Lightbox. It’s a great event space that’s bright, with a bar, and theatre screen. I was last there for the Nike Women NTC training sessions earlier this summer.

Media and editors gathered to sip champagne and check out the latest Fall Collection for Thomas Sabo. You might remember a couple posts about Thomas Sabo and my trip to England with the brand a few years ago (see here!).

The brand is originally from Germany and is planning to open 6 more stores in the GTA. I had an opportunity to meet the founder in England in 2012. The Canadian flagship is at Yorkdale Mall.

Thanks Ryan Emberley for this snap. I’m wearing one of my favourite Ted Baker dresses.

They gifted us all with a customized Love Bridge bracelet from the new line. Mine says CASIE. I’m kinda wishing I got something a little more creative or inspiring. Next time.

Thanks Ryan for this snap too. Love it. I saw the balloon, looked at him, and he knew immediately what was about to happen.

After the event I was invited to an intimate dinner with bloggers and editors. We each had little cakes at our table setting and an invite to join the Thomas Sabo Charm Club.

Over the course of the dinner we picked out charms to add to our bracelets. Mine’s been ordered and I’m looking forward to it arriving. Mostly because it will be a huge surprise given I don’t remember what I picked! Doh.

Thanks Faulhaber and Thomas Sabo teams for the invite and gifts. Find Thomas Sabo Canada on Twitter at @ThomasSaboCDN and see all charms and available jewellery at thomassabo.com.

The Perfect Cottage Weekend #SummerCovered

If you’re new here or you’ve been around the blog for a while, you’ll be well aware just how much I love to cottage. I like spending weekends in Muskoka, on the dock, on the boat, tanning, floating, or cooking up a big feast for our guests. I’ve partnered with Shoppers Drug Mart to share a few of my cottage weekend essentials.

One of the neat things about this post, my next post about The Perfect Summer Road Trip and working with Shoppers Drug Mart is, I’m truly an expert in their products. I used to work at Shoppers in my hometown! I spent the better part of evenings and weekends behind the cosmetics counter during college.

Ok, now onto a few items to make..

THE PERFECT COTTAGE WEEKEND:

FullSizeRender

A long day in the sun can be really draining, it’s hard work being cottage fabulous! It’s really important to make sure you stay hydrated, drink lots of water, and ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Even if it’s not sunny! I like this Neutrogena product because it’s dry and not greasy. I keep this Dove antiperspirant in the shared bathroom because aside from smelling nice, the spray means any of our guests can have a little spritz should they need it. Wink, wink.

I recommend wearing this bug spray with deet in the daytime, not just at night. Those little mosquitos (aka mozzies!) have no limits. They’ll nip your ankles and arms no matter WHAT time of day. For some reason they love me and I always start the summer with heaps of bites (like right now, so itchy!). If you’re an allergy sufferer, take a caplet before you get to the cottage so your defences are up, you don’t want anything ruining your relaxing weekend.

After a day in the sun boating, swimming, tanning, take care of your skin by applying this super soothing lotion. Oatmeal and shea butter will leave your skin felling soft and smelling lovely.

I really love sitting on the dock and watching the stars long after sunset. Roasting marshmallows is a cottage tradition along with making s’mores. The PC S’mores Bites are a delicious before you break out the President’s Choice s’mores kit.

Other items I recommend packing include a nice big sun-hat, a good book, towel, and bathing suit. Also, don’t forget sunnies, I usually pack  few different pairs for selfies. You now me, ha! 🙂

If you’re heading to the cottage, Shoppers Drug Mart is a one-stop shop to get almost everything you need for a great weekend. You can also pick up a bunch of things for your host if you’re staying at someone else’s cottage.

When you visit Shoppers between June 20th – July 17th and spend $10 or more using your Optimum card, you’ll receive a PIN card. Enter the PIN code  at shoppersdrugmart.ca/summercontest for a chance to win 1 of 5 Prizes of $5,000. Trust me, $5,000 will reallllllly make it a perfect cottage weekend!

Thanks Shoppers for stocking me up and to find more great products and summer inspiration visit shoppersdrugmart.ca/funinthesun. Here’s to happy cottaging!

Toronto Wine & Spirit Festival + Schick Hydro Hotel

I recently went to the Food and Wine Festival at Sugar Beach, it was my first time there! It was such a beautiful day! At the festival I stopped by the Schick Hydro Silk Hotel for a relaxing break.

Sugar Beach has really cute pink umbrellas.

Fish taco + lobster poutine. So good.

From June to August, the Schick Hydro Silk Hotel will be travelling to different festivals in Canada, at the hotel you can  drop by to get yourself a sample of Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle razor and Hawaiian Tropic after sun moisturizer or get a chance to spend some time in the Schick Hydro Silk Hotel, where you can relax, have some water, charge your phone, or even have a massage.

In order to receive a sample of the new Hydro Silk TrimStyle razor, Hawaiian Tropic After Sun moisturizer, and Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration sunscreen, people are asked to snap a photo with the bushes from the commercial (get it? haha!).

Thanks Schick Hydro for event tickets, samples, the charge-up, and massage!

As an avid traveller, getting ready for vacation is one of the skills I’ve got done to a science.  Here’s a few items I keep in my summer travel bag or tucked away in my purse to help me look and feel fresh. Everything is small and compact, just what you need when you’re on the go from one destination to the another. A refresher kit of my own 🙂

  • Eye makeup remover wipes
  • Hair elastics
  • Bobby pins
  • Nude eyeshadow
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara
  • Tinted BB Cream
  • Bronzer
  • Water mist
  • + newly added to the list, a Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle!

#OfftotheRaces: The Queen’s Plate 2015 at Woodbine Racetrack

Last weekend I took Carla to Woodbine Racetrack for her very first Queen’s Plate. In case you missed my post about it last week, the Queen’s Plate is the oldest continuously run race in North America and Canada‘s oldest thoroughbred horse race, having been founded in 1860. (Wiki).

We attended the Hats & Horseshoes party and dressed according to the ReThink at the Races theme in black and white. My dress is an oldie from JacFlash that has a cape and I absolutely love it. It’s that LBD I can always count on when I need to throw on a dress and feel fabulous.  (LBD = Little  Black Dress)

 

Picked up my hat at Winners while in Ottawa with Mum last week. Bag is Betsy Johnson, shoes Nasty Gal – Shoe Cult, necklace is vintage silver from Tiffany’s (Sean got me me a couple years ago). Glasses are from Polette Eyewear in France.

These mirror men were awesome.

Screen Shot 2015-07-10 at 2.01.48 PM

It was the perfect day to be outside in the sunshine.  Felt like I was wearing a disguise hiding under my huge hat and glasses. It was great!

Thought this was a funny moment. Once we arrived and did a tour we took a break to tweet about it. We did ACTUALLY talk to each other.

 

 

Caught up with Vanessa and the KP Squad.

I decided to take my chances and bet on a whole bunch or horses for the Queen’s Plate. Unfortunately, I didn’t pick the RIGHT ONE. I’m learning to bet as I go here. The winner was Shaman Ghost by one and one-quarter lengths.

I’ll be at all the big races for the rest of the season through a partnership with Woodbine Racetrack. Hope I pick a big winner at least ONCE. I did win $10 which is better than nothing. 🙂


 

Carla and I were sitting beside this lovely lady and made friends. This was her first selfie ever.

Did you snap a selfie? Woodbine is hosting a selfie contest where you can win a $1,000 gift card. It’s easy to enter, take a selfie with the racetrack in the background, post to Twitter or Instagram with #OfftotheRaces and you’re entered. Winner will be announed end of season.

If you took a photo on the red carpet you can find it on the Woodbine Racetrack Facebook page here.

Thanks Woodbine for the fun and Carla for being such a great date.

The next big race is the Ricoh Woodbine Mile on Sunday September 13th at 1pm. Find more information about all the races and what’s happening at Woodbine at woodbineentertainment.com.

Bon weekend!

TD Canada + MusiCounts + Serena Ryder in Ottawa

Last weekend mum and I went on a trip to Ottawa. I was invited by TD Canada & TD Music to bring a guest to see Serena Ryder and attend a special ceremony where TD Cafe & MusicCounts made a music announcement. It has been a loooooong time since mum and I went on a plane together (NZ in the 90’s) so we made the most of every moment and it was so much fun.

We flew Porter Airlines which involves taking the worlds shortest commercial ferry to the island. It’s a wonderful flying experience!

MusiCounts is Canada’s music education charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) to help keep music alive in schools across Canada.

TD Canada has been working with MusicCounts since 2012. They support Community based organizations, schools, and picka  MuciCounts teacher of the year. This year’s winner was Steve Sainas from BC and he received the award at the JUNOS.

TD Canada has worked with some great Canadian artists through MusiCounts including Arkells, Kevin Drew, and Tegan & Sarah. They’re excited to add Serena Ryder to the mix.  WThey also work w/ the JUNOS team to partner with artists.

TD Canada is committed to music as an organization with a genuine interest in music and communities. They’re not just a cheque signing bank, they actually follow through and make communities better.

Serena made a $25K donation to Musicounts.ca! These kids were SO EXCITED to hear the donation news, receive violins, and to find out they were performing on stage WITH Serena Ryder herself. It was a magical moment. 

The concert was at TD Place in the new Lansdowne Centre and was opened by The Strumbellas. They were amazing. The 6 piece band rocked the house.

Saw this sweet rat rod outside. My dad is a hot rod builder so I had to snap it and send him a pic.

The Serena Ryder concert was so much fun. Mum and I sang along and loved every minute of it.

After the show we went to the hotel bar at the Weston where we were staying and not 5 minutes after we sat down Serena walked in. She was with bunch of friends and I didn’t want to be a fan girl so no selfie this time but it was neat to be at the same place.

TD Canada + MusiCounts + Serena Ryder in Ottawa

For more info on TD’s involvement with music and music festivals in Canada visit tdmusic.com. Learn more about MusiCounts program at musicounts.ca.  They’re got some exciting things coming up including involvement in 70 festivals across Canada and next year at the Junos they plan to ‘paint Calgary green’. I heard they’re got a big announcement coming up later this month too.

Check out some of my involvement with TD Canada over the last year:

Huge thanks to TD Canada and NKPR for inviting me on a memorable experience. it was really special to share that with my mum. It’s always great to visit our nations capital too.

Heading to Our Nations Capital, Ottawa!

Friday morning Mum and I are heading to Ottawa and it’s her first time flying Porter Airlines. I’m so excited to be travelling with her!

Last time mum and I went on a trip together I was in middle school. We don’t often get to hang much, especially not in the summer is mum is usually at the boat and we spend heaps of time at the cottage.

We’ll be seeing Serena Ryder, with special guests The Strumbellas at TD Place Stadium to celebrate Canada Day weekend. Earlier in the day, TD Bank and MusiCounts will be be announcing the 2015 MusiCounts grant recipients and have a special surprise planned for a local Ottawa recipient.  I’ll be doing a short interview w/ TD Canada about TD MusicCounts and sharing it with you next week.

Oh hey @serenaryder! See you on July 3rd! #tdmusic #lansdowne #tdplace

A photo posted by TD Place (@tdplace) on

Feeling excited to take mum on a press trip and hang out at the hotel together. We don’t leave until 4pm the following day so hoping to take a walk on Parliament Hill. I’ve never been to Ottawa around Canada Day. Last time I was in Ottawa was March 2012 for Ottawa Fashion Week and it was very snowy.

Looking forward to some fun times w/ mum and lots of laughs!

New Bike, Snacks, Shoppers, #SMDay

Well hello my friends. 😎✌This photo was taken yesterday and although I look very smiley, I’m not feeling great. I’m so tired. I’m not sure if it’s the small time change last week with my trip to Calgary or lack of sleep but I’m lethargic. I miss the cottage. It’s been weeks since we’ve got to have a good cottage hang and it’ll be at least a week before we get back up to Muskoka. I’m in Ottawa this weekend then back for The Queen’s Plate.

In other news, I had some good things yesterday…

I used to have a Red Schwinn cruiser bike that I LOVED. I rode that baby all over town for a coue simmers, Junction to Beaches and back.

Unfortunately some jerk vandalized my bike and it was unridable, went to the bike graveyard. RIP. 2 years ago I purchased a new one from Bikes On Wheels, Queen West and it was stolen before summer was over. Last year I didn’t ride at all it made me sad.

YESTERDAY, my brand new Schwinn Cruiser was ready for pickup. 🚲👍 Schwinn Canada has welcomed me as a bike ambassador and I’m back on the road baby! I’ve got a few things to add (bell, basket, lights) before we’re full time but one little cruise yesterday made my heart sing. 💛

If you stop by your local Shoppers Drug Mart you might see their new ‘Summer Covered’ Campaign. Next week I’ll be sharing some of my fav products for summer roadtrips and cottaging. I’ll also be featured on the SDM social + website.

Received a shipment of this yesterday. Have you tried it yet?

It’s Social Media Day today and in 2010 and 2011 I spoke at Toronto events. It’s amazing how social media has changed my life and taken me around the world. Thinking I’ll write something about SMDay and share it with you later today.

Anything exciting planned for Canada Day? This is the first Canada Day we’re spending in the city in the last 4 years. I don’t even know what to do! 🙆

Sidewalk Hustle x NTC Sunrise Sessions + Mix for you!

Sidewalk Hustle x NTC Sunrise Sessions + Mix for you!

This morning, bright and early, while you were sleeping, I was at the TIFF Bell Lightbox for a workout with the Toronto Nike Training Club and  Sidewalk Hustle. Tbh, it was quite cold and it sucked crawling out of bed at the ungodly hour of 5:15am but I am truly better for it!

Many of these girls I’ve known for years, we’ve done HEAPS of events together so it’s really nice to do something together that get’s out heart rate up and benefits our health.

Sidewalk Hustle x NTC Sunrise Sessions + Mix for you!

Thank you Nike Canada for the sweet hookup today as well! These kicks aren’t for working out, they’re more for the casual athlete (like me), think hangouts in Bellwoods, long shopping trips with lots of walking, etc.
Sidewalk Hustle x NTC Sunrise Sessions + Mix for you!

Huge shoutout and THANKS to Hawley from Sidewalk Hustle for bringing us together and motivating us to get out of bed and work up a sweat. Our last NTC session is next week. I’m pretty sure I’ll be feeling today’s workout a couple days.

Our instructor Eva Redpath is a Canadian Nike Master Trainer and if you can get into one of her classes, DO IT. You can sign up for NTC classes in Toronto or other cities at nike.com.

Scroll down to get the Sidewalk Hustle x NTC Sunrise Sessions mix created by Hawley for our workouts. It’s a great 45min mix, hit the pavement and give it a listen!

Here’s to a great week!

Don’t Hate, Appreciate! Selfie Queen, New Tricks, New Treats

Omg heyyyyy! It’s FRIDAYYYYY or FRIYAY as kids call it these days. Woke up to find out my blog was BROKEN. Urgh.

Always a scare. I imagine it’s like your child being unable to function. My blog is my baby and when it’s got a cold 403 error and not operating, my heart sinks and I panic. It’s ok tho, fixed now bc you are reading THIS!

Don't Hate, Appreciate! Selfie Queen + New Tricks, New Treats

Went to dinner at the Trump Hotel last night because I am I fancy lady for a press event with LG Canada. I was given a brand new, unlocked (from Korea) LG G4 to test drive. I love new gadgets so much. My fav things about this phone so far is the selfie camera.  It’s got that beauty feature to perfect your skin (no editing required), there’s a front facing flash, and you can signal with your hand to take a selfie.

The PR team was like ‘Casie you’ll love these selfie features’ as then handed over the phone. Then, in the middle of the product demo I got called a ‘Selfie Queen’ in front of everyone. I don’t mind. I’d proud of my selfie skills. I have been taking photos of myself before they even had a name.  You’ll get about 12,300 results if you google my name and ‘selfie’. That takes real dedication! This is an oldie from 2008 when I lived in the East end at Broadview & Danforth. I was an IT recruiter in the financial district back then, seems like a 100 years ago now.

After I passed by the new Yo Sox store to see Ryan and the gang. The once pop-up is now  permanent and they’ve got a bunch of other neat Toronto things in the shop. They’re got a sweet collab coming with Thank You Toronto. For Every Product Sold, Thank You™ Toronto Feeds One Person.

Left my mark as usual. You’ll see this bench when you stop by for a visit.

Don't Hate, Appreciate! Selfie Queen, New Tricks, New Treats, YO SOX

Since Sean was working late I picked him up a TORONTO VS EVERYBODY t-shirt and I got a sweatshirt. Finally tried the Bud Light Apple as well, not bad. It’s like a juice beer.

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 11.03.42 AM

This morning I cut the sleeves off to make my sweater summery. I might cut them more before the end of the day. I dig this look.

IMG_9085

You like? It’s a sweater but a t-shirt, ultimate comfort and not too hot.

IMG_9086

Used my little JOBY stand to snap these pix on the LG G4. I also love using the HISY mobile remote for iPhone. Selfie game strong. I’ve gotta reset my GoPro before that little guy is back in the self photography game.

IMG_9087

Stop by the new Yo Sox store at Queen/ Portland, it’s inside the old tattoo shop at Tattoo Rock Parlour. Message me if you do, our office is across the street and maybe I’ll be there.

Totally feeling this ‘don’t hate, appreciate’ wall decal.
