he said ‘there’s this woman, she’s a hurricane’

Lets do this. Here we go.

Remmeber my Guns on Plane story from the summer when I went to Boston? Read it here. Anyhooters, being calm and was careful not to pack an firearms this time. Go through customs and doing bag check and who’s line do I end up in? Oh yeah, same dude who caught me with the gun. He says ” I remember you? Any guns this time? Do I need to search your bag?” We laugh. I say no. He explains what happened and that the dude last time should really have given me back my gun, 38 special (metal necklace). Then some other dude says “they always hassle the pretty girls”, I giggle, I’m always hassled. I gave him my card and I hope he reads this. HI, NICE SECURITY AIRPORT MAN!

Ran into Marcel next in the Molson Pub. Fancy that! He was on same flight to EL EH. The bartender took this artistic-fuzzy one. Cheers mate!

Guess who likes to sleep on planes and had TWO empty seats beside them? This girl. Snoooooooozefest. One beer prior to boarding, then pizza then gravol then comatose then almost in LA. Quizno pepperoni + cheese za was quite good.

What’s in my locket? Your heart. My heart.

i love this poem by e.e. cummings. one of my fav’s:

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Pretty watching the sun set on the horizon from the sky. Love that. Will be flying in to Ackland at about 7:30am so might catch the sunrising.

Lets hope it is sunny and beautiful when I arrive. There is a so called massive storm on the way. Looks like it will be more South than Auckland so imma be ok.

Remembered today that I have the ‘accent advantage’ for once, y’know, they will all talk the same and I talk Canadian. I love that. When I lived in Australia it worked out really good for me. I also thought how many cute & stylish boys are gonna be there. How did I totally forget these two things? Haha. Really stoked to meet my girl Venus who is gonna be all up mindin’ my business and keeping me on schedule. It’s gonna make me want an assistant and driver when I get home. Hell, I want that shit already!

Have you heard this track Warhol’s Portrait of Gretzky by Hawksley Workman? Saw him perform it live at the Festival Music House during TIFF. Oh man, I LOVE IT, pretty fucking sexy. Listened to it over and over, just got it from itunes so I can listen on plane. How was I not already in love with him?

Give a listen and make your ears happy. The actual Warhol is below.

Love you xo

leaving on a jet plane

Good morning.

Had a FREAKOUT this morning. No not because of my adventure but because my  blog was hacked. Don’t do that. Seriously. Who the fuck hacks a sunshine-rainbow-fantasty-glitter blog like mine? Looooooooosers. Panic at my disco when I got the notification. Seriously. First thought, shit, I leave for NZFW today what the hell imma do? Please don’t hack things, it’s not nice.

Bad actions/vibes you put into the universe have a magnetic particles and like attracts like and they will all come back to you. Be careful.

Heaps of clothes. Thanks to Canadian designers Paris Li, Andy Hall and Nella Bella for outfitting me with style. Thanks to Telus for my phone + keeping me connected. Thanks Betty Kiss for the massive suitcase &  reversible clutches.  I packed shoes galore, Doc’s, cowboys, wellies and five other pairs. It’s fashion week followed by chill time with the fams, totes necesary. My two suit cases aren’t stuffed though, need to leave room to bring home lotsa goodies & prezzies. Taking some Tim’s coffee for a cute little blogger named Hannah in NZ.

Carry on bag is from Nella Bella, the red reno suede. It’s lovely! I always bring my sketchbook on the plane. I get inspired watching people, looking at the flight path, reading listening to music, flying in general really. Crispers S&V are my fav snack (just saw on sale at Shoppers for $0.99, go stock up on my christmas present!). I can plow through a bag of them easy. SO crunchy.

New Wired mag arrived yesterday just in time. Might actually read it sice I’m travelling. I’ve been getting it for two years and each month I browse when it arrives then leave it sitting there to rot, spine uncracked. Packed Kabbalah meditation cards, the 72 names of God, good for focus. When I get anxiety I like to pull one out, focus on the name and it helps me calm down. Must get rescue remedy.

Listening to this song right now. Check out Morgan & Birds of Wales. He’s McDreamy, expecially at the start of the video when he looks into your eyes. Met his new puppy yesterday, pretty much die for cute.

If you find one of my cards around, I would like to give you a prize. I dunno what yet. Maybe I will write you a note and send it in the mail. That would be kinda fun eh?

Gadgets galore. Missing from this pile is the Barbie cam. She’s tucked in my suitcase. I reckon she might be fun to have on the plane though. Hmm, then I can travel with a friend. Haha.

Peach out Toronto. I love you. I love all of you xo

What do you wanna be when you grow up?


I wanna be Casie Stewart. I wanna be a world brand. I want to be famous for doing something great. I wanna be loved by you.

Ok, really though…

I wanna be myself, its what I’m best at. Why be anyone else? They all be damn taken. There is only one you. Remember that. You, you are the best you that will ever be. Make a name for yourself, of yourself. The other day I did a seminar about building your personal brand, I forgot to tell the sold out show – your brand is the most valuble asset you have. There is NO other YOU.

Mum told me “when you have nothing left, all you have is your word”. Let’s hope your word has meaning, value and substance mate.

No person in this whole wide world can make more content and stuff about/for you, than you. No person can make your dreams a reality more than you can. You are the best, be that best you. Go get it soldier, getter done.

Today is about besting, be your bestest you. Nothing will make you more success than that.

Love + light xo CASIE

these lovely photos were shot by lynsie roberts. thanks babe!

this one time, i tried to vacuum…

I’ve never owned a vacuum but I do like vacuuming. I got sent this totally rad unit recently, LG Kompressor. In the handy kit from LG was this rug, dirt, coffee, cheerios and cardboard pieces so I could make a mess and clean it up to test how great the unit was. Well, I thought it was a crazy awesome idea to be all home shopping network and show you how good I am at that kind of thing.

Yeah, not so much.

So I set it up like this.

Then this happened…watch with amazement and enjoy the music.

No really, enojy the music.

So, I got dirt and stuff all over the rug AND our carpet. I do not recommend trying to vacuum piles of coffee, dirt, cheerios and cardboard AT THE SAME TIME. Otherwise, the unit is lovely. Quiet and sucks really hard. Haha.
