Vintage Ink Wine + Contest + Tattoo Tales

Ever wondered about someone’s tattoos but never asked? To be honest, I don’t really like explaining them to people I don’t know. It’s personal, I’m usually asked in a crowded place, and it takes a while because I have heaps. Some have number significance, dates, travel, family, and there’s a couple I got for fun. Pizza anyone? I’ve partnered with Vintage Ink Wines to share my tattoo stories and introduce a contest for a new wine label design based on tattoos submitted by people like us. The tatted! Tattoo Tales: Stories Behind My Tattoos I got my first tattoo in Australia, the southern cross constellation between my shoulderblades. It was about 4pm and we were driving from from Bronte to Bondi beach with no plans so, my friend Cameron and I decided randomly to get tattooed. We both didn’t have any until that day! My next tattoo was 2 lines on my right hand ring finger, one blue one orange. The idea is derived from a personality test called True Colours. It used to be used in workplaces to break people into groups and pair them together based on personality for group cohesiveness. It was prevalent in my studies and I learned that in…

Yellow Pages Next Home x MD Media Shoot 

Yesterday I  on set for a full day shooting 2 commercials that you’ll be able to see very soon. I’m working with MD Media again on a couple ads that will be YouTube pre-rolls so if you see my face in the first 3 seconds, don’t skip!    I absolutely love being on location, having my makeup done etc. Worked with a great MUA named Julie, she also had a sweet, slightly French accent. Thanks girl! My first look was very casual and natural.      The second was when things got really fun.  Took off most the makeup, you can see I got a bit of a tan this weekend.    Then we applied Triumph & Distaster volcanic ash face mask scrub.  This stuff smells amazing and it’s from New Zealand!! I was sent it a few weeks back but hadn’t tried it. You can now find it in Canada.       We were shooting at this great place in Rosedale that backed onto a forest. The birds were chirping away all day, loved it.    Looking forward to laughing and probably being a bit embarrassed when these come out. I’m always a little nervous/excited for new on camera projects!…

Ben’s at Home Win’s best Feature at Canadian Film Fest!

This weekend I went to the Canadian Film Festival premiere of Ben’s At Home, directed by my friend Mars  Horodyski and Dan Abramovici. It’s a romantic comedy where Ben decides to stay home and not leave his house. In doing this there’s some drama, laughs, and romance. HUGE congrats to Mars and Dan for winning BEST FEATURE  at the festival. They’ve been picked up for distribution AND have a web series on the way. So neat to see someone you know really killing it.

Couch, Kleenex, Sneezing, Blarghhh, I’m So Sick

I have the worst cold, I’m so sick. I feel like hell. Sneezing every couple minutes and the amount of kleenex I’ve gone through today alone is disgusting. I’ll be staying inside all weekend and recharging my batteries. Valentine roses are still looking pretty. Went to the Artist Project last night and it’s really cool. It’s on all weekend, definitely worth checking out. Can’t write anything today. Can’t think. Ordered some spicy takeout and am drinking heaps of water. Pretty glad to have this week’s episodes of Y&R on PVR. There’s nothing I’d rather watch right now! <3 CASIE
