Water bottles Are So 2003!

Carrying water bottles is so 2003! They’ve¬†been banned at Hong Kong Uni, Adele concerts, and for all of San Francisco. I’ve stopped buying bottled water since getting my new Bkr water bottle, but now, there’s a new way to save our planet…


I’ve always been a fan of Paris Hilton and along with SodaStream she¬†created the¬†Paris Hilton Institute for Plastic Pollution Solutions¬†who developed NanoDrop. Cute, right?

A revolutionary scientific achievement, a¬†highly condensed form of water that is 5,000 times more hydrating than regular water.”

One little drop is equal to 1 glass of water. 

Say whaaaaa?


“This is the¬†beginning of a new era for humans, sea turtles, oceans, and all other living creatures on the planet.”


Ok, so if this¬†seems a *bit* far fetched you’re right,¬†NanoDrop is not a real product. Did you check the calendar today? heh heh ūüėú

However, the water bottle crisis is totally real and Paris Hilton is serious about saving the planet. She’s also a big fan of SodaStream and if you saw my IG story this week, I just got¬†one!

We’ve wanted a SodaStream¬† for a while and I’m so happy to welcome it into our home. It takes 2 seconds to turn tap water into carbonated water and I can’t wait to start experimenting with flavours.

We’ll be totally cutting out¬†sparkling water purchases at home and in the office.


STAY HYDRATED BB!

Ok so this post is like, totally in partnership with SodaStream. Duh! One step closer to working with Paris Hilton! ūüéÄ

Some Stuff I Directed for Bacardi Canada Instagram

Had a fun time directing this shoot for Bacardi Canada’s agency with 1188. We spent two days on set in a studio. one shooting the people and another shooting product. We had a cast of about 5 people, most found via casting with the addition of my sister, Brock Mclaughlin, and Garrett.

I love doing these fun shoots! Safe to say we had heaps of Bacardi left over!

I’ve been trying do a better job of keeping tract of my actual blog related work. Since casiestewart.com is a mostly a diary about my life, it can be hard to determine what is sponsored (work) and what isn’t. I share heaps so maybe you miss the little disclaimer line now & then.

I like to keep a good mix of non-sponsored content mixed in with the spon con. Last year I set up casiestewart.biz as my online portfolio website and I UPDATED IT THIS WEEKEND. There’s 100+ examples of sponsored things I’ve done over the past few years. Crazy how they all add up! Found this quote on Forbes over the weekend and it’s what motivated me to stop scrolling social media and put in some quality time building¬†my website.¬†I’m finding/remembering stuff all the time so there’s a bunch more to add.

This week I’m on a panel at the NextMedia Conference talking about this stuff with someone from the ASC, Facebook, and an agent who represents influencers. It’s sure to be a good discussion and spark even more around the topic. In a prep call for the panel, Janet from the ASC said:

“We have simply introduced a new Interpretation Guideline to require disclosure of any material connection, because we identified a gap in the coverage of the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards regarding bloggers and influencers.”

You can still get a ticket. Click for details.

Influencers and sponsored content are a very hot topic right now with new rules in Canada from the ASC based on the USA FTC regulations on testimonials, endorsements, and reviews. If you are interested in the you can find them here. DEFF WORTH READING.

I’ve got a few more things to share on this topic, it’s surely not going away. Until then, make sure you take a peek at my work at casiestewart.biz/work!

Tuesday this week¬†was the premiere of Bachelorette Canada¬†and I watched and tweeted along with the rest of the country (it was trending!). Yes, I know these ‘looking for love‘ shows are a bit silly but I GOD DAMNIT just love them for the commentary and chatting away on Twitter. I started show tweeting when I worked at MUCH & MTV 6 years ago, it really takes the TV watching experience to the next level.

In case you didn’t notice during¬†the commercial breaks, Two Oceans Wine is one of the sponsors¬†and they graciously sent me a couple bottles & goodies to enhance my viewing experience. I’ve partnered with them to share my thoughts on Twitter and the blog throughout the season. The things is, wine goes really well with show tweeting. It’s like hanging out at a party, making new friends, laughing, all the while sitting¬†on your couch with a blanket and snacks. I would say I probably posted 20+ tweets during the 1.5 hour premiere!¬†

#BacheloretteCA Premiere Fav Moments

This is Canada’s first season of The¬†Bachelorette, where¬†Janine Poplak (from Vancouver) met 20 dudes, and gave out 15 roses. Some of my fav moments from the premiere below.

Bachelor Kevin P. played a little tune on his ukulele and I quite enjoyed it. Side note, I have a uke and my goal is to learn to play by Christmas.

Her dress was gorgeous. Look at that long train! ūüíÉūüėćūüĎćūüŹľ

Kevin W gave her a high five when he got out of the limo, haha.

This was a cute moment when Seth snapped a selfie when he arrived.

This was a bold buff move by JP. he was NOT wearing anything under this ‘Butler in the Buff’ uniform.

Sangria anyone?

If you’re looking to whip up a nice cocktail, try this Two Oceans recipe for sangria using their Cabernet Sauvignon.
