I’m kinda in love with you Brandy Melville.

Welcome to my new fav Queen West hot lil’ spot. Look at all those signs! Need the Queen West one for the office.  The shop is right in the heart of my neighbourhood at Queen/Spadina and completely filled with everything I enjoy wearing. This is the FIRST Brandy Melville store in Toronto (from LA).

These are the things I got; skull scarf, girl tank, aztek change purse, John Galt flower print backpack. I am in LOVE LOVE with new backpack. I actually stalked it online for days, almost ordering, and today I GOT IT.

That’s US, the big smoke! The Brandy shop is online at @brandymelvilleC and instagram at @brandymelvillecanada. I posted a few photos to each platform. I feel a shop and drop addiction coming on…drop all plans, shop for everything.

Asked them about doing a holiday giveaway, so will keep you posted on that! If you stop by LMK in the comments what you get. I kinda want the whole store. Santa, can you hear MEEEEEEE!

Dear Santa, I want an Octaspring Bed. <3 Casie

image

Last night on my way home from work I stopped by the Canadian launch of Dormeo Octospring beds at 477 Richmond. I’m not usually one to blog about beds and stuff but they were giving out massages, warm food, hot drinks, and it was en route to mi casa. I have NEVER had a pretend sleep in a bed that so comfortable. Lucky for me my lounging was all captured by the brands photographer. I tried Bacardi rum and hot apple cider for the first time and met the PR team. How did I not TRY THAT BEFORE?! So good.

I’m a stickler for technology and these beds are made with innovative, plush Octospring memory foam. They have JUST launched in Canada and are available at Sleep Factory. I have never purchased a new bed for myself as an adult, and this is exactly what I would LOVE to have. They are so incredibly comfortable (said that twice because I mean it), I recommend you follow in my footsteps and take a nap at a store near you. I hope my home insurance covers this kind of furniture, my friend told me that websites similar to simplyinsurance.com (visit site) can provide some more insight into home insurance quotes with information on what is and isn’t covered in their policies. If my current provider doesn’t make the cut I might have to switch. I want this amazing bed to be totally covered so I can sleep soundly on it.

Some photos from the event below. If they are giving away a bed in the near future, I will let you know! Follow them on Twitter at @OctaspringHQ.

Thank you Octaspring for my giftbag, feelin’ the love! Santa, please add this to my list. 🙂

Goodby Dailybooth, I loved you for years.

Today Twitter announced they’ll be allowing us (users) to download our ENTIRE TWEET HISTORY before the New Year. For me, that’s almost 100,000 tweets! I’ve been publishing the Internet for almost a decade and it’s hard to imagine all the things I’ve posted. This month, Dailybooth, the OG photo sharing service that helped kick off this thing we call ‘social media’ announced they are shutting down. If you have photos on DB you can DL them until Dec. 31, 2012. After that, they’ll be gone.

Dailybooth was THE original photo sharing service  when Twitter  came out.  I posted a photo of myself nearly every single day from January 2009-January 2012. The photo updated to the top right corner of my blog showing a new face each day. I hardly had any tattoos back then, nobody had a million followers, and ‘social media’ wasn’t a ‘thing’…yet.

It was the experience I loved most about DB. Logging in and seeing familiar faces, comments, making friends.  I hung out w/ Zolloc (Hayden), my friend from Dailybooth for the first time IRL about a month ago. We’d known each other for years. He was visiting Toronto for Nuit Blanche so I showed him around my fav hood, Queen West and Trinity Bellwoods.  The community at Dailybooth was always so positive.

This news made me sad.
Why do I feel so romantic about a photo sharing service?

I took all 756 photos, added music and made a massive vid with them all. The video is coming soon. It’s five minutes of Casie, five whole minutes. Observations? I make a lot of different faces, I wear a lot of hats (actual hats), I travel, I don’t get sick often, I smile most days, I like to have fun. It brought back so many memories. I forgot heaps of people, places, things, and thoughts. It was nice to be reminded.

It’s sad to see Dailybooth go but I understand why, I’ve hardly used it myself since I got Instagram. A sign of the times I guess…just like 12secondsTV. RIP.

Were you on Dailybooth? LMK 🙂

Sometimes I don’t feel like it. #7

image

Every once in a while I go through days I don’t feel like blogging. I don’t feel like sharing. I don’t have anything to say. I just don’t feel like it. This is #7 in a series of posts with the same title. Today was one of those days. Sometimes I wonder if anyone notices…and then I go to Twitter. 🙂

Have some giveaways coming up for holiday, an exciting announcement, and two upcoming trips. Been practicing my editing skills on a new video. Spending lots of time at home lately too. New job has filled my life with social excitement and responsibility in a completely different way.

This week is the calm before December storm that starts next week! I really love the holidays.

The 100th Grey Cup will be my first pro football game!

image

Went to the Grey Cup Players Gala Award Party at MTCC on Thursday. It was fun. Got to thank my Telus peeps in person for party and game tickets. Lauren and I danced front stage while Kardinal performed and then we went home (to the internet). I’ve never been to a REAL pro football game, only college or Uni. AND, in other amazing news…I JUST FOUND OUT JUSTIN BIEBER IS PERFORMING AT THE HALF-TIME SHOW! OMFG. Judge me, I don’t care. I love the Biebs. Our shirts were delivered today along with a football and some Grey Cup gear from Telus. THANK GUYS! Excited for the event tomorrow 🙂
