  • Local Ladies – Documentary

    This weekend I was invited to sit down with Katie and Meghan, who created Local Ladies, a series all about telling women’s stories in the community. Over the past three years, they’ve interviewed women and screened the short films to raise funds for Women in Crisis. I was interviewed for a feature documentary they will be screening in September. Some of the other Local Ladies! The Local Ladies mission is to shine a light on as many incredible women in the community as possible through interviews, collaboration videos, and *soon* a podcast. Check out their Press for Progress video they created for International Women’s Day 2018. The short film was then screened on March 8th at the Princess Twin in Uptown Waterloo. The studio had great lighting so I took a bajillion selfies. I am also obsessed with this bright emoji yellow and will be wearing it from here on in. 😆 I’ll keep you…

    Work Work, Blog Work, WeWork, Werk!

    Hi! I am at WeWork visiting Raymi and the office is SO COOL. It’s a co-working space and there are heaps of big and small businesses around and freelance people working in the common areas. It’s super bright and well designed to inspire creativity. I love it! Of course, we had a little photoshoot! I wore this dress when I was in Vancouver and honestly, I would wear it every damn day. It’s from H&M and I get so many compliments on it! I am on the hunt for more yellow in my wardrobe. It’s so sunshiney and bright! ☀️🍋💛 Tonight I’m going to to the cinesphere at Ontario Place, then to a BBQ w/ Schneiders. I’m surprising her so I hope she likes it! This weekend we’re heading up to the cottage for a few days. After all the work we’ve done over the last few months, we can finally relax and enjoy it! I’m…

    Bunz Trade For a Portrait

    Last month I met up with my friend Charmaine after she posted on Bunz Trading Zone about wanting a Fitbit. I’ve been going to FitBit media events for years (Love my new Versa!) so I have a couple. Bunz Trading Zone started out at Bumz a couple years ago as a small group for local trades, without the exchange of money. It’s grown to thousands of members with different groups for friending, makeup, yoga, housing, and jobs. Charmaine asked what I was ISO (in search of) and knowing she is a great photographer, I asked her to take my photo. She took a couple of me on digital and film and just had a couple developed! I was just at the office in my regular clothes so it wasn’t a full-on photoshoot, more like a walk & talk hang w/ photos. Great trade if you ask me!  Thank you, Charmaine! Check out her…

    What a Wonderful World

    Sean was up cleaning up tree branches at 6 am today! I slept until 7:30, I’ve always been a morning person. 😊☀️💛 There were a few huge piles of tree branches and trunks to cleanup and we were almost done at 10am. Hustle! 🌳🌲🌳🌲 I love being up here so much. The boat is in the water and it’s beautiful out today. 🚤 Waking up early here is great because you get heaps done and then can chill the rest of the day. There’s a chipmunk creepin up a tree behind me, they are cute but can be annoying. You do not want the little buggers in the house! I love sitting on the dock and writing things down. The lake and nature are inspiring and if I don’t write things down I always forget. 💭 Make the most of the weekend. Do something for yourself. 💕

    Brighter Days

    Smile into the sun. Feel it on your face. There are brighter days ahead.  What a week right, amirite? I don’t think I’ve ever been more looking forward to escaping to the cottage for the weekend. We have worked really hard since March to get it ready and we’re finally there. Time to relax. Yesterday I had a nice lunch with my sister Queen West. We sat outside and laughed in the sun. I spent some time in Bellwoods, caught up with an old friend, met up with Lauren. We went to the Zane X Jenny Bird pop-up at ZANE for a bit. It was so nice out. I met Jenny Bird and totally fangirled like a DORK. Real bugger to hear about the Ontario election results after such a great day. Also sucked waking up to hear about Anthony Bourdain. He was such a great storyteller, inspiring chef, great traveller. This weekend…

    DONT KILL YOURSELF

    Don’t give up. Don’t quit over your job. Don’t die over money. Don’t bottle your feelings up. Don’t stay inside and hide. Don’t give up. Don’t hold it all in. Don’t put on a smile and act like everything is fine when it’s not. Don’t write your last letter. Don’t plan your exit. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Don’t be selfish. Don’t kill yourself.  PLS ASK FOR HELP. Yesterday I posted the suicide hotline after hearing about Kate Spade. I felt sad. Her death was a reminder that no matter how much money, fancy clothes, cars, businesses, health, family, no matter how much you have, you can still have dark thoughts. None of us are immune to feeling like we’re backed into a corner. We all go through love, loss, money, no money, jobs, no jobs, depression, anxiety. Life is hard. No matter how much it seems like someone has…

    My Job Rocks! TV -The Blogger Episode

    Late last year I was asked to be on an episode of a teen-oriented tv show called My Job Rocks and the episode is out! It aired this week on WinHD TV and was available on Rogers Cable Channel 672 and Bell Fibe Channel 679. The show introduces Canadian youth to potential and trending career paths they otherwise might not know exist. I always like to remind younger people to follow what they love because the job they end up doing might now exist yet. Thanks to technology, so many new and unique jobs are being created in new industries. Social media didn’t exist when I was in school but the things I’m doing now, writing, photography, travel, marketing, are all things I was into back then. The show is actually pretty funny! I loved sitting down to chat about my work. There are 3 hosts and one of them is a little…

    Twitter Fronts – Content Partnerships & New Live Shows!

    I love Twitter, I have since the day I joined over 10 years ago. It’s still my favourite social media platform, it’s the place news breaks and where you want to be when live events happen around the world.  Thanks to Twitter, I’ve been able to share my voice, meet like-minded people, and build life-long relationships. I love sharing random thoughts, photos, links to things I read and write, and getting the latest news. “When something happens in the world, it happens first on Twitter” @KayMadati, Head of Content at Twitter If you’re not familiar with the term ‘Upfronts” it comes from TV and has to do with advertising. The Twitter Fronts are a chance for agencies, brands, and advertisers to see what options are available for branded content and partnerships. Upfronts: In the television industry, an upfront is a gathering at the start of important advertising sales periods, held by television network executives and…

    I’m Internet, but I’m Human Too

    Do you ever just feel like you need a break? To run away. Get on a plane. Be alone. Put away your phone. Take flight and be free. I don’t know exactly why but today I feel frustrated. There are lots of things to feel great about but with a few roadblocks, no amount of meditation, water or walking is going to save me right now. I want to curl up with my computer on a patio of a villa somewhere far away, alone. I’ve got things I want to write and I feel like I need a secluded place away from everyone and everything. Life is full of distractions and no matter where I go, they’re all around. Maybe I should turn off wifi. I’m doing a wellness retreat this afternoon and in the middle of planning a trip with Aeroplan. Maybe I have travel jitters and I just want…

    Turn Your Frown Into a Crown, Put Yourself in an Evening Gown

    Gooooooood morning! I’m not sure what’s up but for the last couple days, I’ve been feeling super tired. I was in Vancouver for less than a week but I don’t think jet lag would affect me like this. It’s not even that much of a time difference! Had a nice weekend at the cottage weather was amazing. It’s crazy how the weather can affect us so much. Did you see that May Flower Moon last night? There’s magic in the air! Today I’m doing a wellness retreat followed by a cannabis workship event. I’m also planning a summer trip to Europe w/ Aeroplan. What a time to be alive!  Oh hello. Weekend tan ILY. pic.twitter.com/x6mrgoUKag — CASIE STEWART ☀️ (@casiestewart) May 29, 2018 Was nice to be back in the office after 4 days of the cottage, 3 in Vancouver, and the long weekend. It felt like ages! I am reallllly loving…

    Vancouver: Hello from the other side!

    Hi! I was up early and out the door about 5:30am, arriving in Vancouver just after 9:30am PST. Driving to the hotel it was clear today was going to be beautiful! It’s MUCH different from my last visit in March when it was cold & snowy! When I’m travelling for work I try to get there with a few hours to spare so I can relax, nap, eat, get some computing done, or check out the area. Fellow #TeamTelus friend, Christine (lifeonmanitoulin.com) was on my flight. so her and I decided to check out the area. We walked along the sea wall past parks and people until we got to Cactus Club Cafe. We’d been in Van for less than an hour before we found a great patio and refreshing cocktail.  I have a real knack for this haha. Our waitress said we had to check out the award-winning Bella Gelateria for gelato…

    Crawl into your creative cave and come out a butterfly.

    I was so looking forward to being in the city this weekend. We’ve been away for almost every weekend since March! I got a few things done around the house and took some good time to fully relax. It feels great! We all need days like this. After watching The Wedding on Saturday at Windsor Arms, I came home, changed into sweatpants, sat on my bed, opened my computer, and set up my iPad. It was the perfect day to chill. Tbh, I love sitting at home, quietly, on the couch or in my bed. I’ve got a great little setup using a small table I made last year. I originally found it on Etsy but was crazy expensive on Etsy so I made it myself! It’s great it for sitting or working in bed, and as a footrest at the desk. For my mouse, I use a book or a marble board…

    Spring Style: Highlights are BACK!

    Yesterday I went to Sassoon Toronto for a much overdue hair appt! That was all me, I’d been delaying getting a cut to let it grow a bit longer and give me more roots. I am growing it out from shaving my head last summer. I met with Kim & Tricia, who I like to call the blonde dream team! I interviewed Kim a couple month ago about taking care of your hair, see that post here. She is a blonde WIZARD. This visit, I asked her what’s trending for hair right now and she said that looks for cut and colour are going back to basics, classic looks, freehand painting. They’re doing more highlighted looks but instead of the traditional highlights (we all had as teenagers), the sections are more interesting, geometrical. As a blonde, highlights take a little longer to do but the colour process is quicker than full bleach,…

    San Francisco: 5 Great Things to Do

    There’s no shortage of things to do in San Francisco, you have the water, the Wharf, the city, parks the hills, and over 3,500 restaurants. The key is finding a few ways to see the city with enough time to explore. If I’m on a short trip to a new city, I like to pick 3-5 things I really want to see and give myself lots of time to do it. That way I can leave early in the day and take the scenic route, enjoy meals, take streets without a map, and follow the sunshine. In this list, you’ll find five great things to do in San Francisco if you’re on a short trip but want to see a lot. I’ve also included my runner-up for street art and FOOD.  Fisherman’s Wharf & The Grotto  There is no shortage of great food in SF but if you’re looking for fresh (and sustainably served) seafood,…
