Some of my favourite tech things right now for SPRING.

This is Sacha (above) and we work together on Telus. I’ve been partnered¬†with the Telus team since 2009, my longest relationship! Working together¬†has brought us closer as friends and every time we meet to ‘work‘ it hardly feels like we’re doing¬†a ‘job’. I’m smiling as I write this thinking of all the LOLs we had last week at the Eaton Centre Telus Store. Don’t know¬†if you’ve been in a Telus store recently¬†but there’s HEAPS of home, audio, fitness, and fashion tech, aside from phones. I cruised the store picking out some tech things I love, to share with you. Here’s a few of my favourites right now and why I love them.

Learn From Yesterday, Live For Today, Hope For Tomorrow

Yesterday was full on. By 4pm I was back at the 1188 office and would have killed for a nap. I had 3 things earlier in the day, a call about a new project, then had to pick up Em form daycare, help her w/ homework, and make sure all was cool w/ sitter, and head back to work. I really love what I do but some days it’s super exhausting. Working for yourself has perks but being the face of the brand, writer, editor, admin, finance, marketing,  agent, and accounts receivable can take a lot out out of you. I’m only one woman! Add on step-mama to an 8 year old and partner to an entrepreneur, tbh I get damn tired. Although yesterday was tiring, it was really great. Arrived at the 1188 office w/ Sean early to help out. Then went to the ReThink Breast Cancer breakfast. I’d done a…

It’s Always Summer In My Heart

Last Week of Summer? Doesn’tFeel Like It! Today is SO HOT OMG. I’m wearing shorts and t-shirt and feeling so happy. We had a great weekend at the cottage. It was just Sean and I for a few days. Lots of relaxing, naps, great food, laughs.¬†I love the VIEWS but something else I really love about the cottage is the drive up together and driving long, winding country roads. There’s something so magical about it, laughing together, singing old songs.¬† The leaves are just starting to change¬†and I said ‘I LOVE IT THIS TIME OF YEAR’, his reply? YOU LOVE IT ALL TIMES OF THE YEAR! It’s true, I really do. Each season and type of weather has it’s beauty. Today I’ve got an afternoon with TELUS to meet with 2016/2017 Team TELUS¬†Advocates. I wrote about that here. They sent a welcome package last week with the INSTAX printer! I…

Holiday Mode

This time is year is so hectic, ahhhhh! Lots of running around from now¬†till Friday! Today mum is coming down to help me with some office elfing, aka getting presents ready and delivering¬†to clients. This weekend at home was so nice, a great start to holiday mode. With Christmas on a Friday this year, I think it’ll be easier to really take some time to relax. I’m totally in in love with these little sweaters Telus¬†sent over to help get into official #HolidayMode. The entire campaign is great. [vine id=”imeeM6z0dHx”] Do you know a tablet Dad? [iframe id=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/R37Cx8QwDtg”] I probably spend the most time on my gadgets around my family but this holiday season, my goal is to spend less time staring at my phone and more face-time with the ones I love. I like¬†putting on the (digital) fireplace, reading a book, or simply relaxing on the couch and staring…

Friday, I’m In Love – Holiday Style!

I absolutely¬†love this. One of my fav songs since I lived in Australia 10 years ago. Heart warming to see this big group singing amongst¬†the lights of¬†the Toronto Christmas Market. I’ve not gone by there yet but plan to pop by next week during the day. [iframe id=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/LvUnBEA7_ZI”] Something cool about this vid and another reason I wanted to share… To perform Friday I‚Äôm in Love, they¬†required permission from Robert Smith of The Cure. After he watched a short clip they sent him,¬†he loved it SO MUCH¬†he asked them to¬†donate the licensing fee to¬†charity. Together, Koodo &¬†Choir! Choir! Choir!¬†(80 choir¬†singers in TO) ¬†are¬†donating that fee towards sponsoring a Syrian¬†refugee family. ALL THE FEELS. I love it. In other news, I went to the Koodo office during my last Telus visit and it’s full of bright colours and smiles. Happy Friday, spread that¬†holiday cheer!¬†

This Is My Life | Cyberbullying

Putting yourself¬†out there on¬†the internet or *IRL takes a lot of courage. Having a blog opens you up for all kinds of criticism, haterade, or anonymous¬†comments. My world, the one I’ve created online, is pretty positive, but I’ve had my share of cyberbullying. Telus has an award winning Canadian¬†program about how to protect you and your family online. They offer online info and offline info like in-person training sessions for business customers and their fams. Thanks for this @TELUS! #TelusWise pic.twitter.com/uIpjxQArfZ — CASiE STEWART (@casiestewart) August 20, 2015 Telus is one of my longest standing relationships and this program is one of the reasons I love them. Not to mention the owl for this campaign. I¬†like owls. I’ve had more than one stalker over the years and had to contact the police several times about something internet related. I don’t share this stuff often¬†because it’s hard to talk about. There’s…

This Is My Life | Photoshoot w/ Motorola = #Motoshoot!

Last night I popped over to the East end for a shoot with Motorola inside the studios at 388 Carlaw. A bunch of bloggers & Toronto influencers were welcomed to try on the new Moto 360 watch and get shot by none other than legendary fashion & celebrity photogrpaher Mike Ruiz. ¬†Who is a totally hot babe btw! Nothing quite like bright lights and a famous photog to spice up an otherwise rainy day. The night was hosted by She Does the City and the set was super fun with vibrant colours and shiny balloons. It got reallllll cute tonight! ūüéÄūüćŅūüć≠ūüíĖ Was neat to be shot by legendary photographer @mikeruizone.

4 Companies Offering Great Customer Service

One of the things I really love about Telus is their commitment¬†to customer service. They feel great customer service starts from the ground up and they’ve made a commitment to telling Canadians they need to Expect More from their telcom providers. Today I’m sharing a couple other great customer experience stories from other companies putting customers first. Little Burgundy¬†– Broken Boots Near the end of summer I purchased a killer pair of boots designed by Jeffrey Campbell from littleburgundyshoes.com. I’ve been wearing them¬†regularly¬†but recently the cool cut-out heels broke. ¬† I didn’t want get stuck on the phone ringing customer service so I sent a tweet with some photos to @LittleBurgundy and they replied within about 30 minutes. It took about 5 min to fin d a new pair of booth in store and the return was easy. I really love when a company is socially connect and able to…

This Is My Life | Yesterday Felt Like a Day and a Half

Yesterday was an action packed day that started with me picking up this beautiful¬†new pink iPhone 6s. THANK you Telus! I was due to get a new phone and my old iPhone 6 has been cracked for at LEAST a month. I’ve been using my new Samsung tablet heaps for drawing lately and totally love it.

SiriusXM’s Canada Laughs & The Todd Show¬†Shapiro Show

Hola! Man, ¬†it is HOT¬†today. I was out and about, stopped by a cafe in Liberty Village to a¬†break¬†from the heat. I love this weather¬†but when you need to get around the city and you’re carrying things and sweating ¬†and dripping, you just wanna go home/jump in a lake/pool/cold shower. Yesterday I was back at SiriusXM on¬†the Todd Shapiro Show. You can download the podcast in iTunes or listen here¬†(yesterday’s ep will be up tomorrow). Heading back to the SiriusXM studio now for today’s show.
