< designers of the future >

Welcome to your hotel Miss Casie. Gift card for $1,000. Shopping spree with the girls (models). Stoked! We are here at the Met Hotel for Crystal Light Purse challenge where a bunch of designers are designing handbags. Mega blog girl gang hang. So nice to catch up with all the girls. Wish Mum was here. She’d love it. I love being in hotel my myself though too. These are the designers. Had a big meet n’ greet to learn about designs etc. This prawn-magnificent was delish. I ate a whole bunch more than this though. Borderline artistic. Love you. Your fav movies right when you want them haha. (Dazed & Confused yeah here.) Olsen Twins at Tweet Valley High. See Raymi’s post here with more pix. She beat me to the blog last night. My shirt needs to be tucked in better or shorts higher. Always jump on the bed in your hotel,…

i’m going to design more stuff next year

This is gonna be a good week. I can feel it. I had a really good weekend. I spent most of it at my house. I got a new sketch book & pastels. I made some really special one of a kind pieces of jewelry. I’ve got a plan for a productive work week and it all ends with  Friday night dinner in NYC. Today is one of those days,  one of those that I think ‘wow, I’m really excited to be living this life out’. This, this is my real life. I’m so glad I write it down. Imagine all the things it helps me remember that I don’t write down? That’s the real best part. Posting a photo or update of what I did or where I’m going, then, remembering all the the stuff that happened that day or that party. It’s fun. I’m really happy I’ve kept…

inspiring change through design and creation

I’m watching this inspiring documentary JonJon sent me. It is all about how waste is food and reducing the amount of waste created. Really interesting, and kind of long, but worth it. As a globe, our natural resources are increasingly becoming less and less available. If we find more ways to reduce, reuse and recycle the products we consume, we will have a more sustainable way of life. They mention how we consistently take and take and do not give back. This needs change. I’m a big advocate for giving and living green. This documentary is really interesting, the innovation and sustainable development blows my mind. Now, the real challenge, getting the masses and corporations to change their manufacturing and energy usage. New challenges arise every day and this is why you should be active and keep on learning. Have an awesome day!

Day 622: Morning Light That Shines

Worked from Sean’s office today and it was nice to be back at my desk. I’ve been spending so much time at home I almost forgot what it felt like to ‘go to work’. The morning light that shines in from the south-facing windows is enough to keep me coming back. Drove to Hamilton in the afternoon to pick up our first round of merch for Funday. After months of design meetings and emails, our order was ready and turned out amazing! Needed to get some steps in so I took a long walk after work. It’s really nice to be downtown. Hard to believe I used to go out ALL THE TIME. These days once the sun goes down, I really just want to be home. As the days get shorter, here’s to finding that light in your day!

Day 558: Sit Outside in Silence

Took myself on a little date after work and biked down to Queen West. Felt inspired by this post from Olivia Herricks Design, she posted a reel where you screenshot to get your mantra for the day. I love the idea of ‘sit outside in silence with no agenda’. See the post here to get your own!

410: Bad Girl’s Club

Another transitional jacket! This is one of my absolute favorites, it says ‘Bad Girl’s Club’ on the back and my name on the front. It’s from the Varsity Collection by Canadian designer Hilary MacMillan. It’s from a couple of years ago but a piece I’ll have forever. Last September, I visited Hilary’s Studio in Cabbagetown and wrote about it here. Posted a short Reel in the jacket on IG, click the video below to watch on Instagram with music.
