Thomas Sabo SS13 Launch at The Shard, London, UK

On December 5th I went to the SS 2013 launch of Thomas Sabo. It was at the Shard London, UK. There had NEVER been an event there and it doesn’t open to the public until FEBRUARY 2013. Amazing experience to be one of the first Canadians in the building and post the first Instagram’s checkins OF LIFE. Ermahgerd. I got to meet Thomas Sabo himself and the new brand ambassadors Poppy Delevingne and David Garrett. Poppy was lovely and energetic with an accent I wish I could borrow. David is an American/German, violin playing, bad boy with long hair, great style, and a beard.  Both total babes. There were a pile of celebrities there including including Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg, Jade Jagger, British Pop group Sugababes and Ellie Goulding. The new GOLDEN SILVER line is all about tri-colour matching Sterling silver, rose gold and yellow gold. I wore that gorgesous dress from Ted Baker London, with a Ted’s purse, vintage jacket, Top Shop tights, Thomas Sabo jewellery, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes. It was so much fun. Here’s a little recap of my night! Makin’ history…

Thomas Sabo – UK Trip Day 2 Photo Diary

Took it easy and got a good sleep on Day 1. Tuesday was a busy day one with the big launch event and I wanted to be well rested. Here’s a recap of the day, tour of my hotel suite, and my downtown shopping adventures. It was a blast to hand out with Truc from Flare Canada and Lindsay from Faulhaber Communications. We represented Canada well! Welcome to my room… This old bath was lovely and the bed was MASSIVE. So relaxing. Woke up to a delivery of Thomas Sabo goodies! Started the day with a tea. When in Rome!

Thomas Sabo – UK Trip Day 3 Photo Diary

My third day in London was very short. Most of it was spent in traffic and at the airport. Had a lovely English breakfast at the hotel before my driver arrived. Luckily, there was a bunch of empty seats on my flight to Montreal so I was able to take a whole row and sleep! I needed it! Soon as I arrived in Montreal I has to get to hotel and change for the Tia Maria Room event with Community. It was hectic but I loved every minute of it. Huge thank you again to Thomas Sabo and Faulhaber Communications for this adventure. It was inspiring and exciting. Check out the Thomas Sabo shop next time you are in Yorkville. My fav collections are Rebel at Heart and the new stuff for SS 2013!

On December 4th I went to London, UK with Thomas Sabo and Faulhaber Communications for the launch of Thomas Sabo Spring Summer 2013 collection. I have wanted to to to England for so long. Although only a short trip, it was awesome to travel in style, and attend the launch event with media from 18 countries. This is the first post of four documenting three days in London and a the first event in history at The Shard (brand new tallest building in the whole EU!). Check out Thomas Sabo at thomassabo.com.

And relax…

The weather today fits perfectly with my plans of lazing on the couch catching up on this week’s Young & the Restless. After a long and exciting week of London, Montreal, and a taking the stage last at the night, I am completely exhausted. Hope you are doing something relaxing today too. Any good movie recos?

Sometimes a dream looks like a meatpie, but it’s more than that.

There’s something to be said about following your dreams… I’ve always been a dreamer, always been a little ‘out there’. Someone with big ideas who looked at the world like I could go anywhere, achieve anything. To the moon Alice! The moon isn’t as far away as it used to be and it’s easier to get there if you know how. Today I had a dream. A small dream to some, but to me it was one I had been dreaming about for a long time. It was important to me. The small dream is part of a bigger dream. It’s all the small dreams along the way that helped the big dream come true. My dream was to have an English meat pie. It was part of the bigger dream of going to England that I have had since I was a teenager. [View the story “Meat Pie Dreams” on Storify] Meat Pie Dreams Storified by CASIE STEWART · Tue, Dec 04 2012 15:50:04 I walked a ways to get a meat pie cause the one location was sold out then when I got home realized it was a BUTTER TART. WHAAAHHH. #londonCASIE STEWART All I want for Christmas is a mince meat pie. With potato on top. Love, Casie<3CASIE STEWART That’s the thing, you have to dream a little dream, and set goals, and work at them every singe day. Your thoughts become things and the more positive thoughts you throw at those things, the more real the dream becomes. Then, one day you’re sitting on a king size bed, draped in a white fluffy, hotel robe, in your deluxe suite at Le Meridian Picadilly in London, England, FINALLY eating that god damn English meat pie you have SO been dreaming about. It’s that very moment you smile…

Casie, what are you doing in Calgary, Alberta where it is snowing?

Oh, pardon the swag! I’m in Calgary, Alberta for the 10th anniversary of Paul Hardy, a Calgary based designer making a name for himself around the globe. I’m one of about a dozen bloggers who have have graciously been sent here by Calgary Tourism for a weekend of fashion, fun, food, and friends. I’m fell into the internet this morning after a deep sleep in my king size bed at Hotel Arts and now I really need to hurry to get downstairs. Driver picks us up in half an hour ten minutes for a fancy media lunch. I have a few hours to hibernate shop and hangout this afternoon before the show & afterparty. I love fashion. I can’t wait! Kinda glad it’s snowing so I can wear a hat and fur. Oh, and it’s totally SNOWING.   This is my inspiration for the day.  Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

‘Cause after all this city never sleeps at night

I’m in love with “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons. It’s in the soundtrack for Perks of Being a Wallflower and I’ve purposely not finished the book so I can stay in it longer. Be infinite. Title is one of of the lyrics. I had such a beautiful weekend in Montreal. I’m uploading a bunch of photos to Pinterest here if you wanna check ’em out. Will have a video up later today. It’s lovely getting away for a few days. Being back in the city is good too, but busy. TIFF starts next week. One of my fav events is the Festival Music House put on by RockIt Promotions, there’s always a bunch of good bands and the crowd is fun. See posts from 2011 & 2010 here. Can you believe it’s almost September? Crazy! I love the way my tattoo looks in this photo I edited. It was taken w/ Cannon Rebel and messed around with in Picasa. I use my iPhone so often for photos I forget how amazing it is to work with a great camera. Listen to this song, it will uplift you! CASIE

Ford Escape: Track Driving, Kayaking, Rock Climbing

Last week I had a full on escape from the city. It was so much fun. It reminded me of camp when I was a kid but it was way better. We drove cars fast and had beers after. Chantel, Keri, and I have awesome jumps lol There was about 20 bloggers on our ‘escape’ and the day started with lunch, then games, kayaking, rock climbing and extreme driving on a closed track. We finished with dinner and drinks at Arto Gallery in Distillery District. I’ve been on a few trips with Ford this year and am consistently impressed with their innovation as a brand. Thankfully, they provided us with kayak trailers so we could easily move them from point A. to point B. I scaled seven stories like a spider monkey. First time outdoor rock climbing and I was awesome at it. Instagram: This was GNARLY! My driving partner for the day was Toronto blogger Lisa Charlieboy. I’ve known Lisa for years so spending the day wth her was awesome. We were in Banff together in July for the World Media Fest. See her post from the day at Urban Native Girl. Follow her on Twitter at @UrbanNativeGirl. We did pretty good in the challenges and laughed our heads off. Gas, sharp turns, slamming brakes. I really, REALLY loved driving the Escape (hard) on the track. This is my face after totally tearing it up. I may have injured a few pilons on the way. They are fine. Ford Park Assist: Look ma’ no hands! Extreme Kayaking (with my phone): By the time we drove back to the gallery and got dinner the digital team had produced a video of all the days content. We all watched it together, there are some really funny parts and crazy driving. I’m…

Underwater Blogging + Travel Tips + Friday Fun

Look what I can do! Underwater! Tweet, tweet, tweet! Last week on that underwater shoot for BravoFact everyone got photos in the pool. I  decided it was time to put my DryCase for iPhone to the test. Keys worked, camera worked, and my phone is 100% fine post pool. I mention the DryCase on my show this week. In this week’s episode of THIS on Coral TV, I share with you some of my fav gadgets for travelling. I don’t mind being stuck in an airport as long as I have power so the Incipio case puremobile.ca sent me is a savior. It’s super thin and priced at $24.99 is a great buy.

MY SKYDIVING EXPERIENCE

On July 21, 2012 I went for my first skydive at Jumptown in Orange, Massachusetts. IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME! My instructor Joe Goodbreak was so cool & fun to hang out with. He has done over 1,000 jumps. Videographer was Keith Thivierge with two cameras for video & still. I was only really scared for the 3 seconds before we actually jumped.  We had a 55 second free fall at about 120km before opening the parachute. Falling in the air is exhilarating. Greatest adrenaline ever.  The sky was so clear and beautiful. I felt so calm up there. Before the Jump Skydiving from 13,500 ft (jump is at 2:12) He grabs my head so I lift up my chin to the camera. He told me not to look down but I couldn’t help it! He signals for me to pull the ripcord after we spin for a bit. Time goes so fast when you’re fallin’. I wanted to do dance moves but it was a LOT to take in on my first jump. Next time. [iframe id=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/s1z2tQ_R8h8″] Definitely tops the list of amazing things I have ever done. I can’t WAIT to do it again. Seeking friends who skydive! I feel like a cooler version of myself who can REALLY do anything.  Motivated to take on the world! Have you gone skydiving? Where, when? LMK.  Here’s to a great week 🙂

Go Further with Ford 2012 – Part 1

I’d never been to Ford Field. Lots of history here. Home to the Detroit Lions and with it’s 1920’s architecture, has a real street that runs right through it. I’m more of a cheerleader than a football player. Clearly. Bellbottom blue jeans & stripe top from 3F, neon belt is vintage Darling from South Africa, Alix Rose Cowie. She sang us a lullaby in Afrikaans the next night. She also interviewed Die Antwoord for 10and5 magazine in ZA.  Bill Ford is a really rad dude. He went against the grain for Ford Motor Company really pushing for innovation & eco-sustainability. 250 journalists attended this conference representing media from around the world. All meals together. Breakfast the next day was fun because I met my new boyfriend right after… Now my most popular Instagram. He’s charming. Later in the day we went to this really rad place called TechShop and we made stuff. I made a pewter star and frosted beer mug with a huge ‘C’ on it. This clock was one of my fav parts. Next up in Part 2 I’ll share my driving videos and photos from the track! So fun!

Country By Day, Downtown by Night

Walked two hours today running into people in the streets between work meetings. I love this city. Amazing how rejuvenated a quick getaway makes you feel. Arroved home to a brand spankin’ new Olympus PEN camera. It’s E-PM1, a mini DSLR style camera. The lenses from my other camera’s fit it and i can’t wait to snap some new shots this week. Sadly it’s time to return my Hamilton watch I had on ong term loan. Glasses are those cat eye ones by Derek Cardigan for Clearly Contacts. Blue bracelet was made by Katiya.

OCD Packing Travel Style

OCD packed a suitcase. Suitcase broke. Do you do this too? Five pairs of shoes 2.5 days, about right! Two pairs of Jeffrey Campbells, Sperry’s, Converse & MK thongs. New NellaBella bag, the ‘Avalon’ is perfect for my Macbook. All my outfits have been from 3F. Long black maxi dress on the plane, blue bell bottoms & yellow stripes last night, today khakis & navy ruffle tank. It fits both Dell Ultrabook & Macbook Air, not that I often take them both but one day last weekend I did. I went a little crazy on the NellaBella when I stopped by last week.  This the Moscow was my carryon. It expands so you can fit a heap of stuff in it. Or, if you are like me and gather all kinds or pack in a rush, super handy. It’s PRIDE week in Toronto. I’m missing the parade this year for the first time in the last 7 years so head up north and see the Tragically Hip, Death Cab For Cutie, New Pornographer’s & Rural Alberta Advantage on Canada Day. I reckon a break from the city hustle will be good!

I Hear The Mermaids Come Out in The Moonlight

I love when the sun shines and makes rainbows like this. Up early and off to Dearborn, Michigan!   I usually wear heels when I travel but at this temperature and 7am for a 1 hour flight, I couldn’t be bothered. Plus, my five pairs of shoes fit nicely in my now broken suitcase. I need new luggage ASAP. Thank you Barbie for these great MK shoes. I need a pedicure.  There’s a wicked deal for shellac mani/pedi on Buytopia right now for $25. Ends tomorrow! 875 people have already got it. I have one, gonna try and go this weekend. This app is called TripIt. It pulls flight & travel info from your email and puts it all here for you. SUPER convenient if you travel heaps. It’s also free 😉 I flew on the smallest little peanut ever. 18 people! Asked the security lady to take my photo. What a diva! Later Toronto! Nice being in ya. Hellooooooo Michigan! Sat in the car with someone from Spain Newswire and Karl Lohnes who is on CTV Metro News & HGTV. Both from TO & super nice. I’m here at the Hyatt in Dearborn, Michigan for Go Further With Ford a conference about Innovation & Design. INNOVATE OR DIE!  Told you that was a trend last week. I think it’s mostly traditional media which is exciting for me. Digital kids paving the way for new media huzzahhhhh! Ford is super savvy about this whole conference from the invite, to registration, logistics and delivery. I was here w/ Ford in January for the International Auto Show and was quite impressed. I posted about it here and here. They sent 150 of the worlds top bloggers for a three day press tour. I met  Stuart Flatt from Average Joe’s Blog in England and stalked Dylan Culhane…
