  • Win a Makeover from Sassoon Toronto!

    Hello! I am writing this to you from Lisbon, Portugal! I just came back from the beach after travelling here from Porto. I was wearing a hat for most the day, slept on a train, rode 2 Users in sweltering heat, then walked the beach. But you know what? My hair is still looking great! Something I love about my cut/colour is that no matter what activity or where I am, plane, train, city, beach, cottage, it always seems to fall¬†right into place.¬†ūüėä‚úąÔłŹūüŹĖ I have the team at Sassoon Toronto¬†to thank for my amazing cut and great colour. Blonde can be really hard on your hair but Kim and Tricia keep my hair soft and healthy with treatments and regular cuts. My last visit to Sassoon Toronto was the day before my trip. My hair was shaggy and I had HUGE roots but my dream team took it from meh…

    The Praries: Ford EcoSport Cross-Canada Tour

    This year for Canada Day weekend I was part of the Ford EcoSport cross Canada road trip with Ford Canada. My friend April and I were Leg 14 of the adventure and driving from Regina to Medicine Hat, SK and finishing in Calgary Alerta. It was both our first time in Regina and we had heaps of fun along the adventure. Thank you Ford Canada for this experience! Scroll down to see what we got up to along the way. The Ford Eco Sport Tour involves 14 different content creators each driving the exact same Ford Eco Sport for a relay across the country. When I first received the email I was so excited and even more so that I got to bring a friend! I‚Äôd been wanting to go on a trip with April since that great weekend we spent glamping up north a few years back. We started in…

    Nervous/excited is my favourite feeling.

    When your heart is racing and you feel like maybe you had too much coffee. You might throw up. You can’t stop smiling. Your thoughts are going a mile a minute, circling round the details. You pace back and forth. You need water. You can’t sit still. You’re not sure if you’re nervous or excited but something is going on and you can’t wait. That’s how I feel today.¬† Tomorrow¬†we go to Portugal with Aeroplan. It’s my first time going a Eurotrip! I’m packed and have taken care of all the details. Got travel insurance which is essential. Mailed details to family just in case. We’re on a self-guided¬†tour of a few cities, hotels, Airbnbs, doing whatever we want for 12 days. The weather looks amazing. I have heaps of outfits, accessories, and shoes, neatly packed in my carry-on. I don’t know what I did before packing cubes came into…

    Tom Ford – LOLA Sunnies ūüėé

    If you follow me on IG or have been reading here for a while you’re well aware of my sunglasses obsession! I’ve been collecting them for longer than I care to admit and they’re my favourite accessory. Most are funky and not too pricey but do I have a couple designer pairs I’ve found over the years. Last month I received an email from SmartBuyGlasses.ca giving me an opportunity to pick a pair from their latest lookbook. I went for these cat eye, Tom Ford – LOLA beauties, I love them. The tint is perfect and the lenses are very clear. I usually go for dark lenses but I find they make it hard to read my phone screen (which is essential!). I’ve worked with SmartBuyGlasses before and they have heaps of designer eyewear at better than retail. Remember my Celine or YSL ones? They’re the nicest glasses I have!…

    10 Great Things: Vineyard, Local Flights, Baby Goats, Italian Food

    Monday was just a casual day y’know?¬†I flew to Niagara on the Lake (NOTL) with a small group for lunch & wine tasting at Two Sisters Winery w/ the two sisters. It was such a great experience! Small groups or private adventures are a great way to get people¬† (media, content creators, friends)¬†familiar with your brand. Thank you, Two Sisters¬†(the actual¬†sisters!) for hosting and Fly GTA for the great flight. Can’t wait to try their Muskoka route soon!¬† Scroll through the IG post below and read the captions below. I shared 10 great things about the day. This is an expansion of the original¬†IG¬†post.¬†I’m not sure if I’ve done before? It usually goes the other way¬†(WP->IG vs IG->WP). ūü§ď A post shared by CASIE |Writer Speaker Director (@casiestewart) on Jul 11, 2018 at 5:24am PDT 1.

    Sassoon Style: Summer Wedding Season

    Last week I stopped by Sassoon Toronto for my regular trim. My hair is lower maintenance since I opted for highlights last month instead of full bleach & tone. I really like what’s going on with my two-tone hair, it’s still blonde, has some texture, and is my natural colour at the back. For my touch-up cuts in between colour, I’ve been seeing Tricia for a quick¬†trim. She usually does a few snips while the hair is wet, then does scissor-over-comb (SOC) while my hair is dry to finish off the¬†look.¬†It’s amazing how a quick trim makes you feel so refreshed!¬† Summer Wedding Hair Tips from Sassoon Toronto I love summer and wedding season is the perfect chance to get all dolled up. I would wear this dress to every wedding this summer, it makes me feel great and always gets compliments. It’s my¬†‘feel good’ dress of¬†Summer 2018! I chatted…

    Fill Up for the Weekend + Be Safe Out There

    This weekend we’re heading to the cottage and I couldn’t be happier. The past few weekends I’ve had a bit of travel in Ontario and out west. I can’t wait to have a few days to recharge my batteries,¬†nothing is quite as relaxing at a few days up at the cottage. We usually stop to fill up the car on the way and our fav place is the Husky Station near Bradford for the very best samosas, snacks, and of course gas. When Husky reached out to me about their latest campaign I replied right away about the cottage drive but what I learned in the process is how many people actually get gas and don’t pay for it. As if! Doing that never crossed my mind but in my research,¬†I found out it happens more than you know. In May this year,¬†new legislation¬†passed in Alberta to protect gas and…

    Portugal: Europe’s Hottest Destination for 2018

    I’ve always dreamed of summer in Europe and although I’ve travelled to heaps of countries, I’ve never done a Euro trip. I KNOW! Well, ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. As part of my ongoing partnership with Aeroplan, tomorrow I’m heading to PORTUGAL. We leave mid-month and we’re back on the 30th.  Have I said I’m excited, yet? I was originally heading to Paris with Sean but that trip is a little delayed and I’m so glad this worked out. It’s a great feeling to text your friend and say ‘hey want to come to Europe this summer?’. Ahhhhh pinch me, it’s times like this I’m like omg, this is my life! I am so excited. Portugal is the hottest spot to go this summer, just check your Facebook feed or of your fav online celebs and they’re all checking in to Lisboa, Porto, Sintra, and beautiful coastal beaches. Yesterday I was reading…

    I’m Nominated for the 2018 Premier’s Awards!

    Hello! If you’ve been following my IG or Stories the last few days, I’ve been all over the place. I spent 4 days driving from Regina to Calgary on a road trip w/ Ford Canada, then an overnight glamping trip with Up Cannabis. Both trips were very different and incredibly fun. I will share more about those soon but now I have a little announcement!  A couple weeks ago I received an email from my college asking to have an in-person meeting. Since I was travelling we had a call and it was then learned, I’ve been chosen as the Creative Arts nominee for the 2018 Premier’s Awards! Yes, ME!  The awards celebrate Ontario’s outstanding college graduates and winners are presented awards at a gala in November. More specifically, The Premier‚Äôs Awards honour the important social and economic contribution that college graduates make to Ontario and throughout the world. The awards…

    Having My Moment

    Last weekend I had the opportunity¬†to spend a dreamy weekend driving around in a 2017 Porsche Boxster GTS. This car is INCREDIBlE. I drove all over the place, taking friends to run errands, back and forth to get groceries, from Scarborough to the far West, and all over downtown. I’ve never owned a car and I’ve joked since I was a kid that my first car would be a Porsche, well, there’s still time! Cool thing about this car is that the engine is right behind the 2 seats so there are two trunks,¬†front and back. You can fit groceries and your weekend¬†bag but only one friend at a time, it’s perfect. ūüėúI took Embot around for a drive listening to music and felt like the coolest step-mama ever. It’s got amazing handling for city or highway. It is also VERY fast, not that I was speeding ever at all.…

    Exciting Times Ahead: Biome Grow & Cannabis Marketing

    Last week some exciting family news hit the Global Newswire! About a year ago, the team at Occupied VR came up with an idea for a virtual reality cannabis dispensary. Well FF‚Ėļ to last week, we announced that Weed VR has been acquired by licenced cannabis producer Biome Grow.  Check out the news release here. If you’re reading this and are thinking ‘what is Weed VR, I want to try it“. Email me casie@weedvr.co or send me a DM on any social platform and we’ll hook you up. Comments are open on this post if you have questions. Essentially, it’s a virtual retail dispensary and soon to be the largest library of 3D cannabis strains for educational purposes. It’s a really exciting time to be in this business. I’ve seen some really creative marketing, events, and promotional products. The striped metal grinder card and papers in the top photo are from Van…

    #ShareLove Pride 2018! Video + Parade w/ Telus!

    A couple weeks ago I was invited to Telus Toronto to share some of my Pride memories. I’ve been going to the parade since I was a teenager. Dad took my sister for our first time when we were in high school. It’s been a place for positive self-expression, to celebrate, to join friends for their first Pride after coming out, or to remember friends who have past. Every year we get together to share love, joy, and friendship while dancing in the street together. Pride is an opportunity to #ShareLove and inspire LGBTQ+ youth. Watch how Pride has impacted the lives of those from the LGTBQ+ community. pic.twitter.com/JUFwaVe8S9 ‚ÄĒ TELUS (@TELUS) June 20, 2018 Thank¬†you, Telus for having me in to share what PRIDE means to me. I am so proud and glad to work with a company that supports diversity, LGBTQ, and gives back in communities across the…
