  • Say Yes to You

    Over the past 2 years, I’ve been on a mission to¬†be healthier, both mentally & physically.¬†Ever¬†since I took¬†that¬†solo¬†trip to LA¬†I’ve been paying more attention to my body and taking more time for myself. My next quest is to learn about gut health.¬† Did you know that your overall well-being, including your weight and immunity, may be tied to your gastrointestinal health? In the summer I went to a workshop hosted by¬†¬†Koena, an over-the-counter probiotic supplement to promote gastrointestinal health. This was my first introduction to gut health and got me thinking about my family.¬† Last month I went to another workshop focussing¬†on food sensitivity, leaky gut, and overall gut health. I’m learning but there’s so much to know.¬† A key takeaway is you really are what you eat and your gut is connected to your brain which is connected to everything¬†else.¬† What are Probiotics? Probiotics are¬† “friendly” bacteria that live…

    Great Reasons to Visit Stratford, Ontario

    A couple weeks ago I went on an autumn adventure to Stratford, Ontario.¬† Home of Justin Bieber and the Stratford Festival, the city has lots to offer and is just a 2hr drive from downtown Toronto. We have so many great plces¬†to visit within a 2hr drive of Toronto and it was so nice to visit Stratford again. I hadn’t been since I was a kid! I spent the day with Stratford Tourism¬†and learned it’s quite the quaint destination for culture, food, shopping, and of course theatre. I was happy to find a few cute boutiques¬†with vintage finds, local¬†brands,¬†unique jewellery, and beautiful housewares. Luckily I drove so I had room to fit my purchases in the boot!¬† What to Do: Stratford Ontario Here’s a few of the things I really loved about Stratford aside from catching a show. If theatre is your jam it’s definitely worth seeing one of the…

    TELUS Friendly Future Foundation: Helping Youth & Communities Across Canada

    Across Canada, 1.5 million children go hungry without access to nutritious food every single day, 30K Canadians are homeless (mostly young people), and 40% of low-income families don’t have internet access putting kids at risk for falling behind in school. We can all do something to help and this year Telus launched the¬†Friendly Future Foundation putting $120 million into addressing the social and economic challenges facing Canadian youth.¬†¬†I am proud to work with Telus and have been a¬†#TeamTelus¬†partner for the last 8 years.¬†¬† The Foundation will give grants to grassroots charities¬†in communities across Canada who really know their community and how to help. By partnering with smaller charities, they’re able to help out groups that might be missed by huge corporate donors and make a big impact in small communities. I think this is an amazing approach. I work with¬†Brands For¬†Canada, an organization that provides new clothing & basic needs…

    Review: Dyson Cyclone V10 Cordless Vacuum

    The vacuum is incredible. Best I’ve ever had. I love it. The end.¬† Ok jk jk.¬† I received an email about a month to review the new Dyson Cyclone V10 and was 100% down. In exchange for my review, I get to keep the unit and my house had never been cleaner! This thing has some SERIOUS power. It’s also easy to use right out the box (once charged!) and if you have kids around, a great motivator to clean. Adulting is cool. Excited to bust this open and take ‚Äėer for a spin! Thank you @Dyson! Will be sharing my thoughts on the bloggy. pic.twitter.com/YV3R69Eq7O ‚ÄĒ CASIE STEWART ‚ėÄÔłŹ (@casiestewart) October 3, 2018 I love that it’s cord-free. You can just grab it and go¬†for quick clean ups around the house, the couch, kitchen, stairs, baseboards. I’ve been using it almost daily as a small dust buster style like…

    Money Mindfulness

    Last week I went to a¬†wellness¬†workshop hosted by¬†Capital One¬†for¬†Credit Education Week. This year‚Äôs theme is ‚ÄėMoney Mindfulness‚Äô and at the event,¬†we¬†meditated, did¬†yoga, and learned that being mindful about our everyday expenses can help related stress and anxiety. The event was held on the top floor of the Broadview Hotel and included a¬†joga¬†class by¬†Jana Webb. We enjoyed¬†a Smoothie Station and were sent home with a Mindfulness package.¬†It was very relaxing! The location was perfect for a gloomy day with huge¬†skylights to brighten the space. It was nice to spend the morning with a bunch of the blog gang doing something other than being on our phones. I don’t know about you but money stresses me out on a regular basis, waiting for cheques, people not paying on time, bills, taxes, rent/mortgage. Life is expensive and if you don’t have a handle on your¬†finances, your other¬†problems¬†seem much bigger. Even if you have…

    Bring on the Holidays!

    We’re barely one week into November and I am happy to say I’ve made holiday cookies, decorated a tree, wrapped a present, sang Christmas music, and made a DIY ornament. On November 1st, Home Hardware hosted a Holiday Market fit with all kinds of family-friendly Christmas¬†activities and the photos are so cute.¬† The holiday market was at Twist Gallery Queen West. I picked Em up from school and told her I was taking her somewhere¬†fun, I didn’t realise they would have so many activities.¬†ūüéĄ We sat right down at the cookie decorating table after eating delicious mac & cheese and grilled cheese¬†catered by Gusto.¬† I could¬†have sat there all night. ¬†We put a few decorations on the trees¬† and wrapped presents, both will be donated to a variety of Toronto charities. I love wrapping presents and the holidays so much.¬† It was so nice to sit down and make things.…
