Cottage Life & Having a Strong (Mobile) Network – Telus Love!

As you are welllll aware I spend heaps of time at the cottage over the summer.¬†One thing our whole cottage crew knows is that I have the best internet. I’ve been with Telus for a looooong time and their mobile network is seriously amazing. When we’re driving along Southwood Road there’s a few spots where service drops, but not for me. We always use my phone to stream music from because my network¬†literally, never misses a beat. ūüėõūüéß When we’re on the dock, it’s common for people on ‘other’ carriers to lose signal or miss calls. Not me!¬†ūüôÖūüŹľ I’m always popping on my WIFI hotspot to offer our guests uninterrupted scrolling. We’ve even given my number as a phone¬†contact since¬†I’m on Canada/Ontario‚Äôs largest 4G LTE network. Wondering about coverage in your area? Check out the Telus interactive coverage map HERE. Below¬†is a screenshot of Muskoka, all purple means 4G LTE…

I Got 3D Scanned by Telus at Sherway Gardens, it was COOL.

Been to¬†a Telus store lately? They’ve got heaps of new tech and accessories, you can find a Fitbit (I have the Alta!), pick up a Nest for home, treat yourself to wireless headphones, and all kinds of other great¬†accessories. I mentioned a few of mine of the holidays here. Well, ¬†in their constant pursuit of innovation they’ve set up¬†a 3D scanning booth setup outside the Telus store at Sherway Gardens. You can pop by and get yourself scanned! Telus will send you a digital avatar you can control with an emoji¬†keyboard.¬†I went to test it out IRL and broadcast my session on Facebook Live. Sherway Gardens is a hella nice mall btw, whoa. It’s been ages since I went there.

Travel | Walking Wynwood w/ New iPhone 7 Plus from Telus

On my travels last month I was in Miami for a short visit so I took a tour of the¬†Wynwood Art District. I’ve been dying to go there¬†and check out the walls. Telus hooked me up with with the new iPhone 7 Plus before my trip to the Florida Keys so I left my DSLR at home and went iPhone only. Telus has been rated the BEST National Carrier for iPhone and has ¬†a variety of plans avail to make sure you get the phone you want. You might be looking to upgrade after all my travel photos! For info about the iPhone 7 Plus or awesome features of iOS 10, visit telus.com. TBH this phone camera is the absolute BEST I’ve ever had. I strolled around Wynwood¬†for about¬†hour taking photos of walls, doors, various alleys, and art in alleys. When I got to the airport I edited them all…

Meet The 2016/2017 Team TELUS Advocates (waves hi!)

I first met with Telus PR in 2009, since we’ve done some amazing things together. Back then, ‘influencer marketing’ was something for celebrities (Paris, Britney, Beyonce) and I was still working at Much/MTV. Since then, Telus and I have done some really fun things together like mobile¬†updates from around¬†the world, scaling¬†a building, building¬†a garden,¬†and donating¬†to charities. Last year, TELUS created #TeamTelus Advocates, an official group of influencers across Canada to help them spread Telus vibes across the country through community involvement, sharing experiences, and talking about tech. I’m happy to share I’m on the 2016/17 team w/¬†a bunch of great¬†Canadians! I’ve got a few stories planned over the next couple months including getting my dad set up his first¬†android, travel packages (I’m away most of October!!) AND MY NEW iPHONE 7+!¬†OMG, I can’t wait to get my new phone and take that camera on adventures. Check out some of the…

Telus + Mother’s Day: What’s The Best Mother’s Day Present Ever?

This post was original written last year and we did a giveaway. In honour of Mother’s Day this year I wanted to share it again because I love the video so much! Mother’s Day is always a super special day for both my mum and I because I was born on Mother’s Day! What a great gift! haha. No, in all seriousness, I’m mum’s first born and there was some complications during my birth where she nearly died. Thank heavens we both made it, she’s the biggest inspiration in my life and I am so thankful for her.¬†ILU MUM. ūüíĖ
