Events | Thomas Sabo Opening at Eaton Centre #SABOinthe6

Last week I celebrated the opening of Thomas Sabo’s latest Toronto store in the Eaton Centre. Our special guest was none other than Jennifer Grace who you *might* know more as Native Fox. Top LA blogger & model.  We hung out at the store for the evening and chatted. She’s super nice! We had a few laughs and traded blog tales.

People were lined up before the event started to be the first to enter and receive a special Love Bridge bracelet w/ engraving. My Love Bridge is engraved with my name but I feel like I need another one with something more creative or inspiring. Not that I don’t love my name but you know that I mean! 

A few other bloggers & Thomas Sabo ambassadors were in the house, Justine (Jet Set Justine) and Alexander (Kenton Magazine).

The new store is now open for business and near the new foodcourt on the second level. If you don’t feel like venturing to the Eaton Centre you can always visit thomassabo.com to order online. I’ve been humming and hhhaaaaaaing over a few of their rings to treat myself. There are so many nice ones, I can’t decide.

Check out some of my previous events and adventures with Thomas Sabo over the past few years here.

Fashion | Gifts that Keep on Giving, TOMS for Target

Starting November 16th you can find a special collection by TOMS at Target stores across North America. The limited-edition collection is co-designed by TOMS founder and chief shoe giver, Blake Mycoskie and goes along with TOMS One for One® giving model where every purchase helps a person in need.

Along withe the collection they also created this totally awesome ‘Together Sweater’ inspired by TOMS One for One. Naturall, I tried it on with all my fav people. I love togetherness. Sean has agreed to wear it to a ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater Party’ and I reckon it’s a contest winner! Sorry guys, the sweater ISN’T for sale.

They’ve got items for for men, women, kids, and home and with this collection, Target is donating a blanket, meals or shoes in partnership with TOMS and North America-based charities American Red Cross Disaster Relief, Canadian Red Cross, Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. Each product displays the corresponding donations so you can easily see how your purchase is helping someone out.

I’ve got a couple pairs of TOMS and have picked a few of my fav items from the Target collection below.

Womens lifestyle 1

Love this poncho and am hoping to score one bright and early tomorrow morning. Each purchase will give a blanket so someone in need.

Sean’s fav outfit is chambray shirts and jeans, aka the Canadian tuxedo. The plan is to pick one of these up for him and by doing that, TOMS will provide one week of meals through one of their selected charities.

Mens lifestyle 1

The kids clothes are especially cute and by picking something up for your fav lil’ shorty you’re doing some good.  This t-shirt gives 1 week of meals and the hoodie 1 blanket.

Girls Lifestyle

The housewares items are all under $30 and make great gifts. I’m a fan of these little journals. Nothing like afresh new notebook for jottin’ down ideas!

Notebooks

The TOMS for Target collection is available for a limited time at all Target stores in the U.S. and Canada starting tomorrow, Sunday November 16, 2014. My plan is to get there bright and early and pick up my favs! See the whole collection at target.ca.

I know it’s only November but I’m totally in the holiday spirit. I started Christmas shopping last week and I can’t wait for holiday parties. You can count on seeing the Together Sweater a few times before Christmas too.  If you’re in the mood for some holiday tunes, check out the hap-hap-happiest Christmas playlist on Rdio.

Tweet me at @casiestewart w/ your fav item from the TOMS for Target collection for a chance to win a $100 gift card.

Here’s to a holly jolly Christmas! 🙂

Fashion | Rudsak, A Sample Sale for The Cool Rebel

Popped into the Rudsak sample sale yesterday just after 10am when it opened and there were heaps of shoppers filling their arms. It comes at the perfect time of year since winter just hit! There’s a ton of shoes, bags, accessories (hats, gloves, wallets etc), as well as winter coats and spring/fall leather jackets.

In a preview of the sale the other day I picked up a new leather/fur jacket, purse, and boots.

If you’re not familiar with Rudsak you might want to check out my posts from their April sample sale, fashion week, and the store opening at Yorkdale earlier this year. Founded in Montreal in 1994, Rudsak is a brand that celebrates the authentic cool rebel. They’ve got a rock and roll attitude with a focus on quality leather. This year they celebrated 20 years with a capsule collection named after 20 rockstar greats with only 20 of each item available.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the goodies you’ll find at 99 Sudbury this weekend…

Fashion | Ted Baker London Now Open At Eaton Centre

Last week Ted Baker London opened a new store at the Eaton Centre. The store is located right across the the Apple Store on the second floor near Queen Street. Love that Apple & Ted’s new shop are so close.

Media, bloggers, and brand lovers filled the store to check out the latest collection, intimate details of the store, and dine on English treats from P&L Catering. These little savoury pies were divine! I ate my share of mini sausage rolls too.

I really love the attention to detail in everything Ted baker London. Pattered jacket linings, quotes on accessories, little monogrammed initials, unique buttons, there’s personality in all the details.  In the new ‘Bakers Arcade’ themed shop you’ll find something special in every nook and cranny.

Bench Canada #lovemyhood

Throughout September I was featured by Bench Canada in their Love My Hood campaign. You might have seen a couple of these photos on their Instagram or Facebook. We snapped these shot at  the Wallace Ave. bridge that was built in 1907. Their contest ends this week so scroll down for details on how you can enter.

The bridge covers the train tracks that are currently being expanded to service the new GoTrain Express to Person Airport. Alongside the bridge, is the West Toronto Railpath that I like to run on and where I took heaps of GoPro photos at last winter.

Dug up these old photos fro the depths of the Internet. I love seeing how the city has changed. I think about how the Internet has changed my life in the last 10 years, imagine how this bridge feels?! 🙂
