can’t stop the hurt inside when love and plates collide

Yesterday I was going for coffee I found this in the elevator. It was just sitting there, a tag from an article of clothing made in Japan. Red, skulls, mastermind.

To me, it was a sign that I need to do something. A bunch of us are planning #JapanQuakeTO, a fundraiser to be held March 31st. All proceeds donated to Red Cross in support of those affected by the latest destruction in Japan. If you would like to get involved with donations or anything, please let me/us know.

Knife Toronto is donating proceeds this weekend to Red Cross. Located on Queen Street near Bathurst.

Found this infographic really interesting, click to see in large form. Where will the next quake strike? Here’s lookin’ at you California. Weather & natural disasters are so crazy, fascinating, destructive, powerful.

Also kinda interesting is that on Thursday night before I went out to Puma Social I Tweeted this:

I have always wanted to go to Japan and the day after I tweeted that, destruction happened. My reasons for wanting to go have completely changed now. If I go it will be for relief efforts, not to ‘be big in Japan’. Amazing how a few hours can change so much.

Last night I went to see Morgan play at Supermarket in Kensington for Canadian Music Week/Fest.

He was good. I like his song ‘Let It Go’. Keep up the great work Morgan. Hope you have a really great day. I’m working in fundraising for JapanQuakeTO & a couple other things.


 

P.S. Love design for JapanQuakeTO is complete and the site will be live soon with a link to get tickets etc. I am so proud to live in a city of so many great people that we can pull together like this in a time of need. YES WE CAN!

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!)
P.S. Richard Fabregui spotted in the L’Oreal ad in the April Flare magazine. He blogged some photos from Love a Heart last month. See here on Toronto is Fashion.

sheen’s korner?

I’m sure everyone tuned in thinking “WHAT is going to go down?” I watched the viewers jump 20,000 in the last 10 minues before the show at 10pm ET. Was about 115,000 when it started, watch it hereif you missed it.

After 20 mins views went down heaps. Not that interesting or crazy. Makes Charlie look pretty dumb. He got a tattoo of WINNING on his wrist. I don’t even know why I spent the entire hour watching/listening. Waiting for something good to happen, I didn’t wanna miss it when/if it did. My sis was over it like most people after 20 mins. Train wreck. Twitter was blowing up over it.

At 10:45 views were under 90,000. He’d taken over 2/10 trending topics world wide with #sheenskorner and #tigerblood. I’d call that winning.

Although, he did go from $2 million a show to 100,000 on UStream for free. Also, it has been confirmed that he’s hooked up with ad.ly, the celebrity paid tweets marketing company.

Is this the beginning or the end of Charlie Sheen’s winning? SNL had a few jabs at him with Milers hosting. That can’t be good.

this post is alllllllll about winning.

The other night I was at Century Room for a music video shoot. Was chilling with a bunch of babes/models/friends: Jo, Jess, Me, Grace & Lilly.

You are so cute JoJo.

Renee, Kevin & her cute friend. (R-L) Jo dancing in the back, Jess txting in fur.

I lost count on how many fireworks/bottles there were over the course of the night.

We had a great time, I ended woke up with a killer hangover. Casie Sheen, aaahaha.

My friend JD Howel was shooting the video, check out this awesome footage he shot of the Shuttle Discovery on a plane the other day. It’s now on MSNBC. WIN!

“I was returning to Toronto from a shoot in Cuba on an Air Canada flight, and awoke just as it was happening,” Howell told me in an e-mail. “I started rolling my iPhone and caught two minutes of it before it exited the atmosphere. Talk about timing!” jdhowell.ca

Went for a little stroll fitst thing this morning. Super sunny outside today.

Check out this super hot photo of Keri by Suzy Lamont. WIN!

Lady Gaga killed the runway in Paris last night for the Theirry Mugler  A/W 2011 show. God I love her. Waiting for a call from my sister to see if we will be attending her show tonight. Fingers crossed. I saw her last time she was in town, LOVE. Photo from dose.ca.

In other news, I would like to thank GM Canada because tomorrow A CAR is being dropped off at my place for the weekend. I tweeted the other day that I would love the use of a vehicle now & then and that I didn’t want to own it, just use it. By the powers on the internet, I got an email from the lovely Adria  at GM saying they would be happy to lend me a car from their media fleet. HECK YEAH WIN.

Have an awesome day 🙂

Rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Love you Charlie.

been training for this pretty much my whole life

Watch it. Lemme know what you think in comments. I was so nervous when I saw it last night for my first time. Gah!
