I totally know her!

The main reason I started blogging over five years ago was to keep more memories. Totes worked 🙂 Found all these babies on Google images.

My shoes: Aldo. Outfit was from Bicyclette, posted about it yesterday if you missed it.

I was tweeting DURING the panel replying to people. MHP was like “who is tweeting for Casie”. Nobody tweets for me! (reminded of ‘nobody puts baby in a corner’ for some reason)

Glasses from friends at Rightsleeve. I am a SUPER HERO: Super Blogger/Lady Blogga.

Hey LEESA! Super cute. We blondes get along so well.

Told everyone to say HI! HI FRIENDS!

Skipped to the loo and met this beautiful lady named Jean. I imagine I will be kinda like her when I grow up (if I ever do).


Love the many settings on this Olympus camera (XZ-1 is my new party cam). I fell back on the step ofter I took this shot, didn’t see it. Bruised my booty too.

“an all-around plugged-in pioneer” #personalbranding101

I recently wrote an article for Levis about Crafting Your Persoal Brand. It came out this week and I’m pretty proud of it.  I shared some tips that will help you (or anyone) to build and showcase their talents online. I hope you will check it out.

“Casie Stewart knows a thing or two about leaving an online footprint. Recognized by Klout as one of Toronto’s top tweeters and bloggers, she has plenty of tips on how you can leverage social media channels as an invaluable element to your personal brand.”

Here are some tips on building your personal brand to help  establish yourself online:

  1. Set a goal: Make a plan for your brand. What are you passionate about? What do you want to be known for?
  2. Start a blog: Use WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger or Posterous to create a free home for your online activity.
  3. Find a mentor: Find someone who is doing what you want to do and introduce yourself, learn from them and get inspired.
  4. TGIF: Twitter, Google, Internet, Facebook: Create profiles for yourself online and update them regularly with things that align with your brand.
  5. Get Involved: Seek out events related to your passion and get involved by volunteering. This is a great way to grow your brand, meet others and learn from experts.

I’ve been building my personal brand online for over five years. At first, no one read my blog, and I had no followers on Twitter. We all have to start somewhere but have the potential to go anywhere. In the words of Napoleon Hill, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

New makeup for me, Givenchy! Thank you #LVMH xo

My job has perks and today was a good one. This morning team Givenchy & LVMH had a few people at Sephora in Yorkville to see the new makeup products. Now that’s MY kinda breakfast.

I’ve been doing work with Givenly LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy) for the last few years. They’ve been really great to me & my blog with giveaways, goodies and donating prizes for charity events. Thanks, guys!

Keri browsing all the new stuff, looking glam.

Clearly, I NEED A MANICURE but this blush jelly is good for all skin tones.

This is David the General Manager for LVMG Fragrance Brands. Charming you are David! Thanks for having us.

I’m learning how to work the Olympus PEN better too. Today I figured out how to paparazzi style shoot. Look out. Stalky stalk, stalk. Haha, I love being creeeeeepy.

I’m going to have a BLAST playing with all these new products. From what I’ve tried in the past they are really, really good.

the art of marketing, mining & justin bieber

The Blondetourage! Blonde blogging babes Keri & Lauren.
The Art of Marketing yesterday was really great. I enjoyed the speakers. Each one made their presentation very personal to the room and to Canada. Gary, Jeffrey and Guy were my favourite. It was a pretty rad day.
I was interviewed by The Biz Media & My City Lives for the event video.

We like to blooooooooooog. (That’s how you say it right Keri Blog? ;))

Keri & I crashed the Mining Conference. Cruised riiiiight pas security. You are gonna see more of this. I live right next door. I have no idea why I am not crashing more conferences. If you know one I should attend, LMK.

We lingered behind this set and were on BNN. Did you see us?

It was so sunny & pretty out. Oh, how I so love sun.

Then I saw this unit penix Fenix. I was hoping to Chilean Miners were there for autographs and photos.
Are they still famous? Maybe their run is over and they have gone back to work now. Quite a structure though. OMG I would not like to be a miner, I’ve never been in a mine have a I Mum, Dad? What about the Sudbury one?

Then is was timne for Guy Kawasaki‘s talk to close out the day of TAOM. I snagged a VIP seat up front w/ Michael.

Look, GUY.

He talked about how to be enchanting. I was waiting for my photo to show up in the presentation.

He was really nice.  I reckon if we had a lunch we would get along great. Gary too. Jeffrey from Kodak  (behind Michael below) seemed like a rad dude also, he smiled at me when I passed him. OMG fan girl.

Ok now for the Bieber part. Guy’s daughter loves the Biebs so he asked if anyone had a Bieber connection. Having one, I totally emailed him then tweeted this:

At the end of the conference the host was thanking Guy on STAGE and said he was following the hashtag and Casie stewart has emailed him with a Bieber connection. It was great, especially cause I knew so many peeps there. Got a couple people coming up to me after including a guy from a private jet company who charters flights. He did one for Kevin O’Leary last week. Hey, I was hanging out with Kevin last week too. Wow this world is like a wee marble small.

Guy Kawasaki emailed me back last night thanking me for trying and asked for my address so he can send me his new book Enchanting. I’m tired of saying it but…WINNING.

Today is a busy day. I like to be busy but I also like to be at home on the computer all day so I can get things done. Getting my hair done tonight w/ Darren Kwik Studio. Have a crew from the W Network coming by tomorrow to shoot me auditioning for Come Dine with Me Canada. That should be fun, I have to cook something. Haha.

Have a totally wicked awesome day.

(formatting on this post is wierd i know, have to look into that later in the day!)
