Events | Romance Anyone? Toronto Sex Show

Loving this remix of Tove Lo’s ‘Stay High. I put all the recent songs from my Shazam (music discovery app) and put them in an Rdio playlist. You can check it out here.

“I eat my dinner in my bathtub, Then I go to sex clubs, Watching freaky people gettin’ it on, It doesn’t make me nervous, If anything I’m restless, Yeah, I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all”

Next weekend I’m going to The Everything To Do With Sex Show for my first time even thought it’s been in Toronto for 15 years. The three day event runs October 24th-26th at The Direct Energy Centre and features all kinds of seminars, art, wellness, celebrities, and other fun stuff to do with sex and romance.

It’s a great time of year for this show because we’re about to start hibernation and if we have a winter like last year, we’ll all be spending heaps of time at home. And hopefully not alone!

I creeped the event website and found this group of cool peeps I can vouch for that are worth checking out at the show:

Other things I reco checking out are burlesque, the leather, latex, and the exhibitor floor. I’m not sure if you have ever worn a latex outfit but if you have you know how amazing it is. I used to have a gorgeous long latex shirt but it ripped. These are a few of my fav Gaga latex outfits.

Tickets to attend the show are available online or at the door and range from $20-$35. Show sponsors include Cupid Boutique, Lovedreamer.com, Love Shop, We-Vibe, Blow Vapor, Club Pro A.E., Cam4, and Monde Osé.

Wanna go? I’ve got two tickets up for grabs. I reckon it’d be a great date, fun afternoon w/ your bff, or a way to spice up your relationship. There’s always new things out there!

Travel | Savour the Taste of Montreal w/ MTL à TABLE

Travel | Savour the Taste of Montreal w/ MTL à TABLE

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Montreal with their tourism board to learn about their upcoming food festival, MTL à TABLE. I had an awesome time discovering their culinary scene, meeting other bloggers/media, and being back in my second fav Canadian city. This is part one of my experience.

Scroll down to see what I got up to and get details on how YOU can win a round trip, including airfare to Montreal to experience MTL à TABLE for yourself!

MY MTL à TABLE EXPERIENCE – Part One

I arrived at Renard Artisan Bistro at 9am to greet Chef Jason Nelson and my blogger partner in crime Jason from shutupandeat.ca. After visiting the smallest coffee shop in all of Montreal and we decided to venture 45min outside the city to get local meat, wine, and cheese, a trip Chef often takes on Sunday afternoons.

It was about 10am when we did a wine tasting at Vignoble Vertefeuille. I loved being at the farm. The air was fresh and the wine was good. Not a bad start to the day! Chef gets chicken, rabbit and wine from the farm on a regular basis.

Our next stop was Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs where we sampled cheese and said hello to the animals. It was my first time at a fromagerie and I have never tasted cheese so delicious!

This award winning fromagerie is one of very few in Quebec that uses raw unpasturized milk to make the cheese. It was DELICIOUS!

Love this beautiful lady.

We had heaps of laughs on the way back to the city where blogger Jason from shutupandeat.ca and I met up with the other bloggers for lunch.

Later in the day I really got my hands dirty prepping dinner. And by dirty I mean I got blood on my hands! This is the blood used for blood pudding. I tried not to think about it too much. Look at my crazy face, ahhhh!

#LoveThisCity: Priceless Toronto w/ @MasterCardCA

#LoveThisCity:  Priceless Toronto w/ @MasterCardCA

To celebrate summer and help people in TO experience more of what our great city has to offer, Priceless Toronto is offering MasterCard holders a whole pile of awesome offers and discounts.  I took them up on on offer to see a show at Mirvish AND visit the Science of Rock n’ Roll at the Ontario Science Centre.

Let me tell you, after seeing to Return to Grace, my love for Elvis has grown by about a million. I’ve always loved him and we used to listen to his music at my house as a kid. The show chronicled the life and times of Elvis Presley and the role of Elvis was played by Steve Michaels, a Toronto born Elvis impersonator who is one of the world’s best.

20140720-233940-85180410.jpg

The show finished with my fav Elvis of all, the 1973 concert Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii. It was like I was seeing the king himself, I swooned and sang along till the curtain closed. I also became obsessed with being this Elvis for Halloween for the next 24hours.

Seeing a theatre show at Mirvish carries an element of elegance for me. I remember Dad taking us to see ‘Crazy for You’ when I was little. We got dressed up and had snacks at intermission. I highly recommend checking out Toronto’s vast array of musicals that roll through the city. Make sure you check out offers from MasterCard here before ordering tickets.

There’s a ton of offers for you to eat, play, shop and stay at some of Toronto’s greatest attractions including The Ritz Carlton, Canada’s Wonderland, Toronto Zoo, CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, Legoland, Ontario Science Centre, Harbourfront Centre and more.

My second adventure was to check out The Science of Rock n’ Roll at The Ontario Science Centre. Sean, Emily, and I played drums, guitar, and hit the mic in a recording studio. There are so many artifacts from over the years!

We finished the afternoon with a 3D photo of us rocking out. Don’t we make a cute family band?

I’d like to thank MasterCard for inviting me to experience Priceless Toronto. I’ve got Canada’s Wonderland and Legoland on my wish list before summer’s end. To encourage YOU to check out Priceless Toronto, MasterCard Canada has given me a $100 prepaid Mactercard for YOU. See details below to enter. Contest closes in one week! Check out all the Priceless Toronto offers HERE.

Cat Footwear SS 2014 | New Shoes For Me and YOU!

Cat Footwear SS 2014 | New Shoes For Me and YOU!

Giveaway from @CatFootwearCan & @CasieStewart. Enter here! #newshoes #pickme https://casiestewart.com/blog/

Hi guys! Let me tell you about my new shoes and how you can win a pair!

I recently got to check out the latest from Cat Footwear and was once again impressed with the stylish and dainty yet rugged styles. You’ll recognize the logo from construction equipment and big machines but little did you know they also make really nice shoes. You might remember a while back when I got my first pair Cat of boots, Stella.

Giveaway from @CatFootwearCan & @CasieStewart. Enter here! #newshoes #pickme https://casiestewart.com/blog/

The leather is SO soft and I wore these babies for an entire winter and walked all over the city, and to different cities on my travels. They are very comfortable and as time goes on, they age like a fine wine. Comfortable shoes are the best kind, Vessi footwear have plenty of comfortable shoes which are also 100% waterproof and you can wear them on any occasion, including those water adventures that you like to go on with friends and family.

From the Spring 2014 look-book I picked the ‘Mahoney’ in Nile. They are a clean classic oxford with a nice solid sole and leather upper. I’ve got a pair with your name on them! Buying a pair of new shoes feels like a well-deserved treat! Plus, we wear shoes pretty much every day, so whether you buy shoes from sites like Peter Sheppard, from a charity shop or from a shoe store on the highstreet, hopefully, it will be money worth spent.

Giveaway from @CatFootwearCan & @CasieStewart. Enter here! #newshoes #pickme https://casiestewart.com/blog/

Enter below to have a pair of the same shoes sent to YOU. We’ll be twinsies and if we are ever in the same place at the same time wearing them we are totally taking a shoes selfie. Contest is open for one week and open to anyone in Canada.

Thanks for reading and following my adventures!
