Great weekend in Montreal so far. Filmed w/ GoPro in the car today. I am going to be GoPro obsessed now. The Ford Fiesta is fun. Really good on gas. I love the old cobblestone streets in Old Montreal, this is such a great city. Beautiful day out today, super hot. Heading back to Toronto Monday.

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-08-26

Fashion’s Night Out hits Toronto September 6th

The clock is ticking! On Setember 6th Toronto joins over 18 countries and a zillion worldwide events for Fashion’s Night Out. This is the first ever FNO in Toronto so it’s kinda a big deal. It’s also the opening night of TIFF so, izzz gon’ be crazy!

FNO was created in 2009 as a collab between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York. It’s a night for shoppers, celebrities, models, editors and fashion lovers to get together over shopping, style tips, make-overs, and parties.

I’m on the social committee and will be bopping around to events ALL night.

FNO Toronto runs from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm on September 6th.

13 days till TIFF & FNO.  Let the games begin!

Art/Advertising, Both.

I love the Say Media blog. They post Venn diagrams about advertising, marketing, and social media every Friday. This week “Great Advertising is Art”.

Some examples they posted today of trendsetters paving the way for awesome advertising at art. You will like the video. Beautiful.

Valfre is one of my fav artists. Her drawings are so good. Her blog is here. One of my favs is in this post.

Yesterday Seems So Far Away

Had a great sushi lunch at Guirei on Queens Quay yesterday. I like it there cause the sushi is super fresh and the rolls are not cut too thick.

Tested out Car2Go at their new Toronto Head office on Bathurst. I’ve never driven a Smart car but I think they’re cute.

Stopped by Brill Communications for the launch of two new beauty products. Micropedi is an electric buffer your feet. I have baby feet now, they are so soft. It retails for $39 which is pretty good considering how much a pedi is and you can reuse this little gadget over and over. Easy to use, portable pedicure.

Was given some samples of Viviscal. It’s a favourite hair booster of in-the-know celebrities that just launched in Canada. It makes your hair healthy, strong, and grow faster. It’s loved by Liv Tyler, Reese Witherspoon, & Local 706, the Hollywood stylists union.

I’m gonna give it a go for the next couple months. My hair is still really short! My fist pony in years. If you can even call that a pony tail!

Have an awesome day!

SummerWorks 2012

I hope you took my advice and went to something at SummerWorks this year. As someone new to the theatre scene,  SummerWorks introduced me to a culture of awesome in the city. It was amazing to see so much talent from around the world brought together through art. I wish I could have seen every show and performance. Huge congrats to SummerWorks Theatre Festival Team! If you didn’t experience the festival, now you know for next year!

My letters from the Letter Writing party should arrive this week!

I loved the creativity in the live art sessions, Dare Night Lockdown, Letter Writing. Taking part in them infused a childlike fun that I feel people lose when they grow up. Don’t ever lose that. Festivals like this open your mind and heart to see things that inspire your life.

You are not getting younger but you can always get awesomer.
