Some times things happen… you don’t know why, or how but it just does. Things like having the rain stop just as you are about to step off the street car, or going to pay the parking meter and realizing that there is still 1/2 hr left (SCORE!), or finding the perfect gift for something without even trying. OR it can happen on your leisurely walk to yoga…
As a blogger, I have been keeping tabs on all of the major writers in this blogosphere we call the internet. Some local, some not, some vegan some not… WELL there are a few in Toronto that I follow because I like their energy, or style, or can relate to them, or I just find them all around Fucking fantastic… whatever the reason.
Casie Stewart, lifestyle blogger and information DJ is one of those women. I have been following her interweb career for a few years and think she is simply fan-fucking-tastic. I had a bit of an online girl crush on her… something that I was told was brought to her attention by two men that shall remain nameless (sheepish embarrassed face). When I found out she would also have a show on Coral I was pretty pumped. The tweets started happening and an online friendship was created.
After a long, but sunny and fabulous shoot for CoralTV I decided it was time to head to yoga. I sent out some tweets (one was sent to Casie), put in my ipod and started walking. After 3o mins of sunshine , and mad beats, I look up and see a little short-haired blonde chick sitting on a patio. No Fucking Way! It’s Casie… I wander over… she see’s me, freaks, and we embrace in a screaming, laughing, I CANT FUCKING BELIEVE IT type of typical white girl hug.
We had some drinks, chatted about everything interweb, and decided, yup this is the start of one fun ass blonde friendship.
The short of the long is this… work hard, make sacrifices and cultivate fun, like-minded friendships with hawt babes.

Days off for someone like myself are few and far between. I treat each day off as if it were the last day alive. I wake up early, and do some yoga. This prepares me for the day ahead, it clears my mind of lingering worries and stagnant stresses. It also allows me to enjoy the next 12 hours of worry free adventure. And beer, I drink beer as I meditate… don’t hate.
After an hour of downward dogs and attempted handstands followed by properly executed arm balances I found myself hungry … Now many my regular readers will go ahead and assume that I blended up one of my many random, but delicious smoothies. FALSE!!! on Saturdays I eat cake! ( also yummy in a smoothie btw) yesterday I baked a gluten free vegan chocolate cake for a friend. I had leftover dough….
After my well deserved cake fiesta I visited my stylist at Blonde Salon. I am horrible at maintaining an Elegant coiff so obviously I was reprimanded on arrival. But I made up for it in inappropriate jokes and X rated story time. Personally I believe I should get a “Most inappropriate client” award or something… Just sayin’ …
They were nice enough to let me eat my Belmonte Raw salad on the rooftop
Now I realize this may not be for everyone, but I personally believe that antiquing is not just a sport for the elderly. I have been on a hunt for a 1920s style crystal bar set for quite some time. And so, on my walk from the east side to the west side I just had to stop in every vintage shop I could. No success today… I did find this though… A old school peeping tom pervert machine! AND ITS ALL MINE!!!!!
I have a reputation for cultivating random friendships from all of my experiences, both exciting and not so exciting. One of these encounters was at the Bang On tshirt store on queen. I wandered in to say hello and found @brandon_jftd and his multiple packed lunches. A man after my own heart. I, myself keep a plethora of snacks and meals in my purse at all times. Sweet appetite bro.
and sweet cat shirt.. I want that, give it me right MEOW!!!!!!
No day off would be complete without my daily two hours of blog writing. Today I spent that time on the Tequila Bookworm patio with a pint of Denisons and lush green surroundings. I had the whole place to myself. I was THIS close to taking my pants off… But stopped myself just as the kind server man came to check on me… Next time waiter man, next time.
After 3 hours on the patio alone and blogging all I gots on the brain is TACO TACO TACO TACO TACO TACO TACO… so I’m going to fill that craving now … HAPPY DAY OFF FRIENDS!
