Going Home

Older people always tell you ‘time goes fast then’ you get older and you become that person. It’s true. Both things.

When I get really drained from life & the city I like going back to my home town. I grew up in Cambridge, Ontario, I went there this weekend. Have you been? It’s quite lovely, and quiet and you can see way more stars.

I have a group of friends there that I always see. One even lives across the street in Toronto but I pretty much only get together him when we’re all home for a holiday. It’s awesome. No matter how tired I get from travel, events, work life, nothing reenergizes me like some home cooking and chatting at a familiar place with the crew.  Other great re-energizers are yoga and cottages.

This weekend has for once (in a longish while) been really relaxing. Saturday night I had a hot tub and went to bed early. Friday night I had poutine and some serious Draw Something. Add me: casiestewart. 

We all get so busy and technology is such a part of our lives that it’s really hard to shut off. Ok not for everyoneeeee but lots of us. Especially me. I’m sitting in my old room at Mum’s as I wrote this and it’s quite magical how inspiring it is for creativity.

Tonight her and I went on a date to see Hunger Games and I loved it; girls night AND the actual movie. Have you seen it? The fashion made me really excited for Halloween. Or whenever! Look at those lashes and hair. I love this, I do. Hat gloves, earings, eyebrows, lipstick. I know I’m late to the boat but sheesh, why didn’t anyone inform me of this. There was even love story!

The movie used 35 full-time makeup artists. And there were more than 450 wigs on set to create the Hunger Games look, according to Linda Flowers, the movie’s hair director. For her freaky look as Effie Trinket, above, Elizabeth Banks was airbrushed with pale pink foundation and had a different eye makeup design for each outfit. * Glamour shared secrets from the movie

This news makes me really happy because I HAVE an Airbrush Set. I was sent one last summer from Dinair in Hollywood but I’ve not really used it. I’m going to now! Have been airbrushed a few times, once nude on Bay Street for a TV pilot.

Saw that nail polish I mentioned last week has a whole Hunger Games collection. You can get the lashes too. I want them.

I wanna go to the opening ceremonies. I’d totally be one of those babes all dolled up with coloured hair, fasteners, flowers, and bright fabrics.

And for the boys, can you please try this? I will love you forever. For real. Also, don’t even get me started on Lenny Kravitz in there as Cinna, stylist. I melted a little.

I hope you had a wonderful & energizing weekend and may the odds be EVER in your favor. 

Mum gave me a chocolate bunny for Easter and I ate the entire head off.

    The most explicit thing I understand as I get older is the importance  of family. Technology, partying, work etc etc fade in comparison.
