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 my life (I have these from Amazon). Shared some packing tips a while back in this post.

This weekend we were at the cottage the weather was warm and it was great to be out in the boat. In August we’re up for Sean’s birthday and¬†staying for nearly 2 weeks. It’s my fav time of the year up there together. We have a few projects we want to do around the cottage. It’s great creative time with lots of relaxing. I love to get out in the kayak or my SUP board in the morning. I tell myself every year that I’m going to work on my book, maybe I will this time! I’m further than I was last yeat and I think this Portugal trip will give me the kickstart I need!¬†

This weekend I tried the beyond Meat burger at A&W that’s made from plant protein and it was so good. I’ve loved A&W since I used to¬†go to cruise night there with dad as a kid. I like what they’ve been doing lately by trying to provide better and healthier fast food options. Not sponsored lol.


Sending you love and sunshine. Have a great day. Enjoy the weather wherever you are!‚ėÄÔłŹ

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! [See here!]

Protect your face from the sun and look stylish af w/ great sunnies. Check out their website. ūüėé

This post is 100% in exchange for my new glasses. Thank you SmartBuyGlasses for reaching out! YOLO.

this is my life, casie stewart
