Are you the next #HTCone Influencer?

Are you the next #HTCone Influencer?

Have you seen this yet? Clicked the fancy ad in my sidebar for the new HTC One? If you did, you’ll notice it’s for a big contest with HTC  to win a phone and social + blog mentorship from none other than yours truly! This is my second partnership with HTC in the last couple years.

I was given the phone a few weeks ago and almost all the photos I’ve published here since have been shot with the HTC One. The selfie cam on this lil’ thing is the best I’ve seen and the reviews of it are great! I posted a bunch of photos over the weekend and a collection in this post here. The phone itself is made of aluminium and the home screen is a feed of all my social activity and news.

HTC is looking to help someone take their blog to the next level by offering them mentorship from a famous successful blogger. You’ll win the HTC One, mentorship, and you’l be published right here on THIS IS MY LIFE.

Good luck! Contest closes on MAY 30th, 2013!

On Thursday, May 16th, Ted Baker London celebrates 25 years of beautiful style, design, and adventure. You’re invited to join the national celebration hosted by ME at the Yorkdale’s Ted Baker London store. Designer, aesthete, traveler, connoisseur and debonair man-about-town; there’s not much Ted Baker doesn’t know about this business we call fashion.

The Toronto flagship store has only been open for a few months and I was happy to be one of the hosts that night. Remember that beautiful blue dress? Ahhhh, yes, how could one forget. I’ve also got a GIVEAWAY for one of Ted’s 25 Year’s limited edition taxi print scarf. See below for details!

Event Details:

TED BAKER & Casie Stewart - Evite

As a Canadian Ambassador for Ted Baker, I feel it’s my duty to let you know some of the great items in store for Spring 2013. I absolutely love this brand. I feel like all the clothes were made with me in mind. They’re extremely well made with acute attention to detail.

About Town w/ the New HTC One

About Town w/ the New HTC One

It’s been one week with the new HTC One and I can say two things, I’ve never been stopped so much for someone to look at a device and I don’t really miss my iPhone. I’ve literally been stopped (by dudes mostly) in the elevator, at Target, at bars, and at dinner, just to show it off and have them touch it. It’s a good feeling.

I took all these  photos with my new HTC One over the last couple days. I’ve really been enjoying the weather 🙂

I’ve taken over 400 photos, lots of selfies, and posted a few videos in the last week. The front facing cam on this baby is out of this world, you’ve never had selfies so fresh. There’s a couple photo skills I’m working on but overall, this is the best phone camera I‘ve ever had. Last week I went to a training session and it was super cool to learn about the technology behind this little guy. The pixels are bigger than other phone cameras which makes the images clearer.  All the apps and features on the phone come with sharing options, so, for someone like me who is a Tweets, blogs, and creates heaps of content, it’s perfect.

HTC is launching a MASSIVE contest and I’m part of the prize. That’s all I can say for now. Keep your eyes here for details. I’m looking forward to telling you about it!

HOW MANY LIVES WILL YOU LIVE?

HOW MANY LIVES WILL YOU LIVE?

The latest campaign from Perrier for ‘Secret Place’ is pretty rad. I showed it to my work peeps and we loved the complex digital journey. I really like mix between branded entertainment and game.  In Secret Place, you’re at the Ultimate Party and you get to live out the experience from the perspective of each of the 60 guests.

Hmmm, sounds interesting…

PressLayout02 (1)

This is the part I love

It took them 18 months writing scripts and scenarios to produce a film shot from each character perspective. Then, they had to build in the functionality to seamlessly switch characters with one click. Mind blowing!

“Imagine having to reproduce the sound of a bottle on a bar as many times as there are people in the room who can hear it.” I can’t imagine. There’s are a bunch of different rooms to explore at the ‘Secret Place’ party, it you haven’t done it yet. I encourage you to give it a go.

This scene gets pretty sexy…

The prizes are parties at some of funnest places around the world including Ibiza, Art Basel in Miami, Saint Tropez, Rio for Carnival, and Sydney for NYE. The experience is available worldwide but open to 20 countries to play in the major markets for Perrier France, United States and Canada. I would love to win but unfortunately (for me) I’ve worked with Perrier and this is my second sponsored post. Last summer I told you about The Drop short film, see here.

Visit perriersecretplace.com to see how many lives you’ll live. I wish you luck. It’s quite a journey to go through the intricate video. If you win, I’ll happily be your +1!

Have an awesome day 🙂

Earth Day 2013 + Big Face Animal Shirt from The Mountain

Earth Day 2013 + Big Face Animal Shirt from The Mountain

It’s Earth Day! Today, more than usual, we give attention and praise to our cool green & blue planet!  I am so freaking happy the weather is finally getting warm. I try to trick myself into thinking if doesn’t bother me but, it’s almost MAY and cold. I was born May 8th and I prefer it to be hot by then. (THAT IS A HINT)

This weekend, I was lucky to be up  north opening the cottage. Took some photos with my new Fuju XF1 and wore my BIG FACE GREAT HORNED OWL from The Mountain. I was sent it as a gift just in time for Earth Day. So great. WHOOOOOO is the coolest? Get it? Urgh, clearly I am not cool or funny. I also have the Boston Terrier but I’m saving that one, for a special occasion.

The Mountain seems like a pretty fun company (see tweet above if you did not already see tweet above). The Mountain produces tees made in the U.S. with water based inks and PVC-free operations and even invented a new dye oxidation system that cleans their dye waste water without the use of any chemicals.

My friend Kenny at work has a couple, so when they emailed me I was totally into it. I want more friends to have them so we can be a wild kingdom. Mine is Youth XL for $14. If you are my friend and your birthday is coming you might get one.

I was laying on my yoga mat in the sun staring up at this tree. It looked pretty and different colours in the sun.

After a relaxing weekend staring at trees, sky, lake, and sunshine, it was time for me to fly home on my broom. Here’s to a positive and productive week of awesome. I put in the request for lots of sunshine. Happy Earth day!

 

Test Drive from Ted Baker London Spring 2013

Test Drive from Ted Baker London Spring 2013

On Friday I got to do something that is every girls dream! Stopped by the Ted Baker London showroom at Faulhaber Communications to check out a bunch of spring items to pick something to ‘Test Drive’. Squeeeeeeee!

I’ve been an ambassador with lots of different brands over the years and this for sure ranks up there. I was feeling kinda meh and  as soon as I started trying things on my spirits were uplifted! All the Ted Baker London clothes are extremely well made and have strong attention to detail. The style fits me so well, they’re playful and fun yet classy and tailored.

20130408-090321.jpg

I noticed the camel cape as soon as I wanted in but tried on a bunch of things and looked at all the bags. I wish had every item in my wardrobe!

I decided to go for the camel cape. It’s 70% virgin wool blended  with cashmere. I love it. The inside also has beautiful orange/yellow ribbon stitching and fine details. I’ll have this thing forever. Matches great with my fav Ted Baker London purse and bulldog print scarf. Now that I’ve sampled this stuff I will deff be making a trip to the Toronto store at Yorkdale Mall.

Hope the sun is shining bright on you today. Here’s to a great week!
