Lookbook: #SpreadLeLove w/ Le Chateau

I’m a little bit late the game with this but it’s still February and there’s always time for LOOOVE!

Earlier this month Lauren and I were featured in the latest lookbook for Le Chateau. This was especially fun for me since I used to work there back in high school, Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener FTW!

Le Chateau gathered some of their favourite Toronto media, had us pick outfits, and scheduled a shoot day to capture the love. Ours is BFF love obviously.  See the whole gang in this post by She Does The City or on the Le Chateau blog.

We had heaps of fun shooting! Lau and I have been having our photos taken together for years so we’re ready to roll as soon as the camera is on. We picked the same necklace and gloves without even knowing. We planned the same hats in different colours. Dressing the same as your bff is really fun.

I loved the cuteness in Daniel and Julio’s photos. All the love! Find them on Twitter at @DoTheDaniel and @Fashionights.

Lookbook + Video: #JayuBlogged Fresh Collection SS15 via @casiestewart

A couple weeks ago I was on set at a Toronto studio w/ Canadian jewellery designer Sally Han of Shop for Jayu. Last summer Sally and I exchanged emails about their first look book and I wasn’t available to take part at the time but this round I was. We had heaps of fun on the full day shoot and I’m happy to share the final product!

For my looks I went with, ‘Glamour Calling’, inspired by big hair and bright colours a là 1992, and ‘Vintage Traveller’ inspired by Twiggy & Pan Am Air in the ’60’s, with a bit of Edie Swgwick.

The other bloggers featured are Jodi Blk in monochrome and Victoria Simpson from Haute Canada in with the pink balloons (and the legs!).

Here’s a behind the scenes video by David Sztrimbley and a peek at the lookbook. See the whole thing here and check out the latest collection at shopforjayu.com.

If you were following along on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Selfish yesterday you’ll know I was on set with Shop for Jayu shooting the spring lookbook. It was fun! Nothing like a day of dress up and playing in front of the camera to make you feel really tired. Once I get home, I didn’t even make it through the Grammy’s before passing out on the couch in my jogging suit onesie.

Earlier last week we met to plan our looks at The Pink Grapefruit, Queen East. Check out the video below.

I finally wore these super uncomfortable shoes (that I love) from NastyGal. They’re never seen pavement but I’ve been holding onto them and sometimes wearing them in the house for the last year. That clear heel tho.

That’s a wrap! Now we wait to see the final shots. Fingers crossed. This is the part I hate, the waiting! I’ll be sure to share with you once they’re live.

Here’s hoping you have a great Monday. I’m feeling a bit drained and overwhelmed, need one of those UV lamps I think. February is a tough one of all of us in cold, dark, wintery climates. Remember to get some sun on your face, take Vitamins D and B. I find a B50 complex really helps me from feeling SAD. Yes, I get the winter blues too guys!

Sending sunshine your way,

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.

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!

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.

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!

The Idea of Waiting for Something Makes it More Exciting

The Idea of Waiting for Something Makes it More Exciting

Yesterday was such a whirlwind day. I’m feeling a bit frazzled from it all and kinda overwhelmed. I’ve not even had a chance to think about today, Thursday, and the Press Screening of Behind The Red Carpet Film. Apparently we have interviews before and I don’t even know what I’m wearing. (WHY DIDN’T I PLAN!) Mum is in town and coming by in the AM to be my date. If I’m ever in a bigger movie I’d happily take her as my date like Jared Leto or some other cool celebrity.

It was super nice to get a few deliveries yesterday, they were perfectly timed! Upper Canada Mall sent a bunch of Mac lipsticks in all my fav reds/pink. It’s part of the #SWAKforheart campaign for Valentines Day. Durex sent a red box of goodies to spice up the vday romance. I’ll share more of these details when I’m not so exhausted!

My chocolate covered Lays chips arrived and they are SO FREAKING GOOD.  Took them to two meetings and the bag is nearly gone. They’re dangerous! See my Valentines Gift Guide edition 1 here. 

Had a great meeting/snack session with Shop for Jayu and the other bloggers (JodiBlk, Victoria Simpson) at The Pink Grapefruit for the #JayuBloggedII photoshoot this weekend. I’ve got sourcing/planning to do but it was great to go over each of our looks with the photographer, hair, and makeup. It’s going to be a really fun day. Can’t wait till Sunday!

Today is another crazy day. Nervous/excited is my fav feeling but it can be overwhelming! A good sleep helps. Good quotes too. This is my mantra right now…

Wishing you a great day. Make sure you’re following me on Twitter AND SNAPCHAT (casiestewart) for realtime updates! Exciting!

With love,

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

I don’t usually do gift guides but I really like Valentines Day and it’s an excuse to treat yourself/someone you love. I know it’s a Hallmark holiday, but I don’t care! I adore all the hearts in store windows, the pink and red all around. I’m all about spreading the love!

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

All the things below make great gifts for you and/or someone you love. Ladies,  send this post to your boyfriends.

Ted Baker Accessories

Ted Baker has a quite the sale on right now and there’s some great things for both men and ladies, especially accessories. If you’re in Toronto there’s locations at Yorkdale and Eaton Centre. I have the ARBA faux fur neck collar below in black.  It’s super warm and goes with everything.

Marble for Your Gadgets

Now sure how I forgot to add this first round, anyhoo, updated the post to include a few more things. These Marble accessories for your gadgets are sure to warm the hearts of anyone attached to their phone/iPad/computer. You can get a soft skin for your iPad, laptop, Android, XBox, Kindle, or a hard case for your iPhone 6 (or 5!). Order online at nuvango.com/casiestewart and if you’re in Toronto use ‘GTAskins’ for a discount.

Clarisonic and/or Amopé from Shoppers Drug Mart

I have never in my adult life had softer, more clear skin than I do now that I’ve been using a Clarisonic.  I was given one in November last year and have used it almost everyday since. It’s great for evening skin tone, brightening complexion, is waterproof, and pre-timed for 6o seconds.  Great gift (especially for yourself). You can find the Clarisonic at Shoppers Drug Mart Stores, good use for those Optimum points!

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

A spa package is always a good gift. However, if you’ve not got the time or funds to fork out for regular pedis, the Amopé makes a great gift.  It’s a quick and easy way to get your feet extra soft and smooth. You can find this at Shoppers too!

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

FitBit Flex from Telus

If you’ve set a goal to be healthier the FitBit Flex is a great gift idea. Sean and I have his & hers wearables to track progress towards our fitness goals. If you buy a fitness tracker from Telus before Feb. 28, they’ll give $20 to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Get yours online or at a Telus store in your area.

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Your Love (or Yourself!)

For the Fashion Lover, Call it Spring

If you’re looking for something lovely and stylish, Call It Spring has a whole bunch of gift ideas under $50. I really dig this purse shoe combo. I love the matching prints trend and might just pick this up for myself, and still wrap it up for VDay.

Lays Wavy Milk Chocolate Chips
Yes, these are real, real salty and sweet. I love chips, throw in some chocolate coating and it’s heaven. I’m waiting for a delivery of these as you read this. You really can’t go wrong with a bag of these while sitting on the couch with your bae (or alone). Put on the Netflix and call it a night! These are around for a limited time so if you see them, get a few bags before they’re gone!

Nothing planned for vday as of yet but I’d be quite content watching a romantic movie and eating a bag of these Lays chips TBH.

Sending you love from across the Internet!

A Good Watch, A Wood Watch, A Good Wood Watch

A Good Watch, A Wood Watch, A Good Wood Watch

It’s been ages since I wore/had a watch but just before the holidays I was contacted by JORD and got to pick out my fav wood watch from their classics collection.

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 8.56.34 PM

I was looking for a ‘boyfriend’ style, androgynous watch and went for the Fieldcrest black in a classic midsize. I like the monochromatic wood face that shows the intricacy of the grain. Here’s a better photo from their Instagram. If you need help choosing a watch, take a look at reviews on www.hotrate.com.

Since I picked such a unisex style, it’s been worn mostly by my BF! He absolutely loves it. Ladies beware, if you get one and have a BF, you might not have it for long. The collection is reasonable with prices ranging from $120+. There’s some really beautiful woman’s watches in Turquoise, Rose Gold, and Silver. Love, love , love! I think the Rose Gold wood would suit me quite nicely!

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 9.04.12 PM

Thanks again JORD for the gift! If you’re interested in getting some wood for your wrist or someone you love, check out woodwatches.com. FYI all US orders placed by Feb. 10th will be delivered by Valentines Day. 🙂

Behind the Scenes: Le Chateau’s Latest Lookbook #SpreadLeLove

Yesterday was SOOOOOO fun. Lozzie and I posed for the camera in studio dressed in outfits we picked out from Le Chateau. They brought together a whole bunch of bloggers from Toronto to Spread Le Love in a Valentines Day shoot.

(null)

Here’s a little sneak peek! I’ll for sure be sharing the shots once they’re out in the world!

(null)

 Thanks Caroline Levin for the GREAT makeup. When I met up with Sean later he said I looked like a doll. Once we got home he said ‘are you gonna take that stuff off now?’. It’s cute that he prefers my natural face. Gah, I’m so cheezy and in love!  Just wait till you see the shots from the shoot I had with him last week. They’re A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.

(null)

Finished the night with a huge bowl of Pho and came home to watch The Fall.

(null)

If you haven’t watched it on Netflix yet, I highlt recommend it. It’s a sexy murder mystery with 2 seasons starring that hot babe from the 50 Shades movie coming out next month. MEOW!

I’ve got a conference call shortly that is VIDEO and I’m not even dressed or showered. Working from home is great when nobody can see you! Gahhhh. Ok, always rushing. Back in studio for Army of Sass tonight. Woo hoo!

Hope you’re having a great day!
