Calgary Casie, Banff Bound

Driving on the Trans Canada highway from Calgary to Banff. Great flight on WestJet, picked up the car and hit the road. I met a bear. “The Trans-Canada Highway (French: Route Transcanadienne) is a federal-provincial highway system that travels through all ten provinces of Canada. It is, along with the Trans-Siberian Highway and Australia’s Highway 1, one of the world’s longest national highways, with the main route spanning 8,030 km (4,990 mi).” Wikipedia Happy I packed all the clothes. It’s cool & rainy. Fully prepared with Wellies and yellow raincoat. Opened my suitcase, pulled out a vintage fur and leopard hat. Stylish and snug as a bug. Pat Hope, my Fairy Godmother would be proud! I could see what we are diving past right now. I’m gonna wake up in the Rockies. This is crazy. Can’t wait to see the @urbannativegirl, @latejuly, & the @CoralTV team. Tired/excited. Let’s do this! Hi, Calgary! Nice to be in you. Cheers to Travel Alberta for the warm welcome.

Exciting week just passed and I am SO ready for a getaway! Tomorrow I’m scooting up north to the countryside with Barbie to a friends cottage. Give me nature, lake, silence and sunshine. YES PLEASE.

Save The Mermaids

Found a bunch of pix from my year at Uni in Australia. Living at Bondi Beach was a total dream. I had a BMX, an Aussie surfer BF and spent countless days riding waves & catching rays. It was magical. Had super dark hair for a while too. Life is such a dream, <3 My cousin Matthew from NZ.

Strong Desire to Wander and Travel the World

The photos are up from last week’s Smith Hotels event at the Spoke Club. Was so nice to see everyone, kinda felt like a kick off to spring. This time of year gets super busy with events and things leading up to summer. Photo cred to Ryan Emberly for these shots and cheers to Marcello for a fun evening. See the full album on Facebook. Hope to cook up somehting cool with the Smith Hotels team. Love you Team Best Fan <3  I’m not sure what this drink was but there was grapefruit, vodka, Campari perhaps? Whatever it was, super refreshing.  Summer, come–hither!! Roger is a legend.  Best conversation of the night happening here 😉 I’m dying to get away to somewhere far. Europe, I have my eyes on you! Next travel spot is Florida in May. Found this great read today, 55 gentle ways to take care of yourself when you’re busy busy busy. There are SO MANY good things that will energize your soul. I’m trying to catch lots of rest lately. Here’s a sexy song from Lana Del Rey’s unreleased album, Nevada. Bon nuit!

Relax & Recharge Dem Batteries, Girl.

I’ve been having a lovely relaxing day at home. I love Saturdays with no plans but home and the couch. Repaired some furniture, watched a few movies, sorted an array of business cards, and played Barbies with a mini munchkin. Movie marathon currently in progress so far we watched Hard Candy w/ Ellen Page, a psycho thriller and Waynes World. Next up looking for rom com and some foreign film to remind me of travelling. These photos are from my  trip to our nations’s capital for Ottawa Fashion Week earlier this year. Have been using my camera less since I switched to iPhone and forgot about all kinds photos on it. Doh! In the spirit of being Canadian, this video sums up all aI learned about prohibition on my trip to the Canadian Club HQ last month. The infographc is on PR newswire and you can read some of the other kids write-ups about the tour on Sidewalk Hustle and Notable.ca. It was done by the same film studio that did the vid I was in for Puma last year, 1188 Films.  We had so much fun with this campaign, celebrating After Hours Athletes. Hey, sometimes a victory is making last call 😉 This vid was the promo for the event, which was one of my fav parties ever. See the party vid on Puma’s YouTube. Have an awesome day! <3 CASIE

Exotic Hotels in Far Away Places…

Last night I met the team behind boutique hotel booking brand Smith Hotels. They transformed the Spoke Club gallery into a divine experience with a lavish bed, cozy bath robes, delicious mixed drinks & a catered to a crowd of Toronto media & socialites. I’ve got a meeting with them later today and hope it sparks a budding travel relationship! Photos from the event will be up soon. These are all from iPhone! Everyone got a copy of their ‘Italy’ hotel collection book and MY GOD, I want to go to Itay even more now. SO many beautiful places to explore, discover and rest your head. For now, I’ll enoy my own slice of paradise I like to call, Balconia! Enjoy the day! Hope it’s beautiful & sunny wherever you are. Oh hey, the Skydome Rogers Centre just opened. First time I’ve seen the turf this Spring! <3 CASIE Instagram Me:

Canadian Club Prohibition Tour 2012

I recently went on a two day travel adventure with about 10 media peeps to the Canadian Club HQ in Windsor, Ontario. Lemme tell ya, you put a bunch of grownups (yeah, sounds weird eh?!) on a bus it’s just like being in school. Limo’s picked us all up, then we sitched to a stretch limo bus and off we went. I shared a few photos about two weeks ago but these are the official Praxis PR ones taken by Ryan Emberly with a camera. See the whole album here. I absolutely loved this adventure. I felt like a kid the whole time, except well, the fact that we were drinking whisky. We arrived at the brand centre and were invited to make out own drinks. It was awesome. We had a tour of the place, learned the history, had a few more drinks and relaxed outside in the sun. It was super relax but well organized. I can conly imagine the stories those walls could tell. The building is really, really old and was the main for trading liquor across the border during prohibition. The tunnel is still there and a few of the boys actually went in it. I was wearing a dress so I didn’t climb down but I took a video. Brock is down there somewhere. There was a whole bunch of ‘fake’ Canadian Club that people used to sell during prohibition. I’d love to have this Toronto stuff, I wonder how it is compared to the original CC? In the afternoon we played a game that had us running about the entire place with fake guns in teams. It was hilarious. School trip. Riot. This photo was taken in the original Speakeasy in the basement of the CC HQ. Al Capone used to hang out here.…

SXSW: SUNSHINE & STYLE

It’s seriously hard to sneak away and spend time with computer! Things are going great. Met so many wonderful people. Wore this super cute new shirt from Billabong yesterday with banana yellow Converse. I wish I had a bike to get around in. I want to drive down in a camper van next year. It’s not like this is impossible, as I know quite a few people who go on road trips and camping trips in a camper and it seems like it is so much easier for them. So if you’re thinking to buy camper trailers in Adelaide (location varies depending on where you live), then be sure to do your research before making a decision. I also would like to go to Burning Man one day. I was digging this style of showing off your product. Bikes & babes, nice one guys. I love cruising the conference floor for a lap each day. Had some bevvys with Team New Zealand from Sydney’s TBWA office. Good people. Super fun! Lauren was wearing all new Billabong too. I really want new tattoos. Everyone here has tattoos. There are so many babes. Projeqt is very cool 😉 I really should have brought the ‘casie stewart’ shirts. Kate was lookin’ super cute. If you see Keek stickers or glitter, it was me. Check out some of my videos at keek.com/casie. I’ve been making heaps! Here’s one! Mar 12, 2012 | Source: Keek.com
