The Zombies Guide to Surviving Among The Living: How to Selfie

The Zombies Guide to Surviving Among The Living: How to Selfie

As you might know, I’m quite the expert in being a zombie, or at least dressing like one! Well, my skills in zombiesm have paid off! Over the next three weeks I’ve teamed up with shomi to deliver you some tips on how to survive as a zombie amongst a world of humans.

The new 13-part one-hour drama, iZombie (from the brains that brought you Veronica Mars) is now available to Canadians, exclusively on shomi.

Some notes on the above tips from my professional experience as someone who has taken about 10,000 selfies. In order to appear extra human, take selfie in any public space. Stop, drop, selfie anywhere and everywhere. Especially in the middle of a busy sidewalk, at the mall, just be careful not to selfie while crossing the street. You might die again. Another tip is to add a filter, or even double filter to make yourself look less dead. I personally like, Rise, Lo-Fi, and Valencia in Instagram to add a bit of extra brightness.

The theme is ROCK N’ ROLL and I suggest pairing your fav band t-shirt with jeans, maybe a blazer? Thinking I might bust out this Iron Maiden shirt in some type of stylish summery fashion.

Kinda like this but no tights.

To make it even BETTER, the night supports a great cause, Friends Of The Greenbelt Foundation.  Check out all the sponsors and more about the event at brewersplatetoronto.org.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU GUYS THERE! 💛☀️

What’s your fav room in the house??? #housie

What's your fav room in the house? Show me your #housie!

In my latest little project with TD Canada I’ve joined them in celebrating the places we live. Whether it’s your first place or a fresh start somewhere new, there’s always one room in the house you like the most.

What's your fav room in the house? Show me your  @TD_Canada #housie!

In my last place I loved the living room, remember this view overlooking Lake Ontario and downtown Toronto? I spent hours staring out those windows.

What's your fav room in the house? Show me your  #housie!

TD Canada is encouraging people to share their fav room in the house with a #housie, a 360-degree video selfie of your home. My fav room in our house is the roof top patio. Last summer I had a lovely garden up there and spruced up the place with some new furniture.

What's your fav room in the house? Show me your  #housie!

My TD Canada #housie

How to create your own – I’m sure you know!

Love to see your fav room in the house and how you celebrate your home. I need to celebrate today by doing some cleaning! Once uploaded to Twitter or Instagram your vid will be added to the others on tdhousie.com.

Distracted Driving is a Modern Problem

Distracted Driving is a Modern Problem

Last week I mentioned the OneTap app in a post along with the importance of NOT texting while driving. If you have an Android phone, download this app right now. Think of the olden days when people drove around without distraction of a mobile phone, then think about now…so many distractions. Even the smallest things like a sputter from your car can cause distractions! If your car is very loud and splutters all the time, you might want to soundproof your car. It will stop distractions from your car that the OneTap can’t prevent as well as making conversations inside the car much easier. Now, soundproofing your car doesn’t have to be expensive either, as long as you get it from the right place.

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 4.07.38 PM

OneTap is an app that keeps drivers focussed on the road. I know updates can be distracting (my phone is buzzing all day!) but there’s no text, email, tweet, or status update worth risking your life. Looking at these texting and driving statistics should be enough to make you realise this, as there are a shocking number of accidents that happen as a result of it, and I’m sure those involved would turn back time in an instant and put their phone away before turning on their engine. All kinds of small distractions can be so easily avoided. When you look away from the road it’s like driving blind and an accident can happen in a split second, which could end badly for everyone involved, it might end with you being charged with something like vehicular homicide and requiring the help of someone like these criminal attorneys to take on your case.

Key features of OneTap App

• Prevent distractions from calls, texts and alerts
• Activate manually, or let it detect when you’re driving and turn on automatically
• Easily review collected alerts when you arrive at your destination
• Track your driving habits and be safer behind the wheel
• Keep on eye on your family’s distracted driving
• Send and receive urgent calls and messages—OneTap will notify you when you should pull over to receive an important message

Download OneTap here and I’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s available for iPhone!

DRIVE SAFE and keep your eyes on the road!

All The Girly Things Post on a Sunny Friday

All The Girly Things Post on a Sunny Friday

First things first, HAPPY FRIDAY! Started my day with some work and an amazing croissant from Cafe Neon in my hood.  I’m all out of Tassimo so ventures out into the cold sunshine to treat myself.  I really love working from home and for myself. It’s been about six months and I’ve got myself a schedule. I can’t wait till summer when my schedule means staying up at the cottage during the week here and there and morning coffee on the dock after kayaking.

I’ve started a new subscription with NextIssue, the Netflix of magazines and I love it. I spend so much time on my phone, and love magazines, but buying heaps and carrying them around is not practical for me. They’ve given me a code for you to get a 60 day trial (double the regular offer), visit this link and use 60free to sign up.

Mum joined me at The Spoke Club for the press preview of Behind The Red Carpet film. Doesn’t she look amazing? Thanks for coming Mum! Love you. The film is on CBC’s doc channel 9pm, Feb. 23rd.

I’M A JUNIOR MOVIE STAR! Ok, let’s not get carried away here. You CAN see all my film/tv stuff on IMDB tho. Let’s hope for more this year. I’m working on a few things and hope they pan out. You might be seeing even more of my face, if you can believe it.

Are you on Snapchat? ADD ME OMG RIGHT NOW.

You know I love short videos and this is your behind the scenes look at even more of my life and silliness and things I do in the day. You’ll not regret it. You’ll find me at: CASIESTEWART.

Stopped into The Loft Toronto for a little snip to clean up my hair before the shoot this weekend. Sylvie and I chatted about pixel hair and made a date to try it in 2 weeks. I’ll share more on that next week.

(null)

 

Stopped by Le Chateau to pull some clothes for the Shop for Jayu shoot. I’m super stoked and also kinda nervous about it. Lots to organize. Had a nightmare about it last night!

(null)

Queen Street West, RIP old furrier. It’s being replaced by this ugly store. I mean, it’s fine for the mall but QW is losing the uniqueness with each and every big chain that pulls up in the hood.

(null)

That’s all for now. Looking forward to a double date w/ Lozzie later. Off to get my nails done so I’m all dolled up on Sunday! WEEEEEE!

HAPPY FRIDAY!
