HAPPY MONDAY!

Posted in Uncategorized by Shira with View Comments

Happy post-Halloween. Hope you’re having a lovely start to the week. Yep, that’s me in my Wonderwoman pose.

I still can’t believe it’s November and the election is tomorrow!!!
Here’s a list of useful sites to check out and keep up-to-date with the latest news on election day.

Also, not sure if you have already heard about the infamous Sarah Palin telephone prank. Two radio personalities from my hometown of Montreal somehow got her cell number and pulled a major prank on her. It’s pretty funny and completely embarrassing:

I’m always on the go from shoots to meetings, so I’m constantly blogging from everywhere. Right now, I’m at at café in Culver City before heading to hang out with some on-air friends at Indie 103.1 FM. My laptop wouldn’t survive bouncing around with me without this awesome red hot laptop bag. Thanks to my friends at Higher Ground for supporting my crazy blogging lifestyle.

With the economy being where it’s at, you might not have the money this year to spend on that great Halloween costume. I went to Goodwill with Travis Oscarson from Reelzchannel.com to show you how to be creative this Halloween, and get that unique outfit that fits your budget. What you don’t see in this segment is this hot red dress I tried on that inspired me to dress as Jessica Rabbit. It was only $3.99! Now all I need are some hot gloves and a red wig and I’m good to go!

My friends over at Good Magazine started a project with Glassbooth asking people to write out why they are voting on a paper and take a picture. Well, just because I’m Canadian didn’t mean I couldn’t participate.

At Cheebo in Hollywood right now shooting Cisco’s Digital Cribs series. Grabbing some lunch with fellow blogger and fashionista, Geri Hirsch from becauseimaddicted.net.

She just turned me on to this amazing new product called the iBangle. It’s an Ipod but it’s a bangle, which for your non-fashion folk is basically a bracelet. Created by designer Gopinath Prasana as the next incarnation of the Ipod. What do you think? Would you wear the iBangle?

Went to Giant Studios the other week to do a segment for Reelz Channel on the Incredible Hulk’s DVD release. I actually got to put on a motion capture suit and see how they transformed Ed Norton into the Hulk. Watch the segment below:

I’ve been experimenting a lot with Qik. It’s basically a free service that allows you to stream live video from your phone. I use it with my Nokia N95 phone and it’s completely simple. You just create an account and with one click on your phone you can start streaming live from wherever you’re at. Plus, people can go online, watch and chat with you live. Yep, it’s pretty wild!

So last night during one of the WebbyConnect events, I decided to play around with it. Kevin Pereira from G4 was there. Thanks to his tweet and loyal fans, we had tons of people watching live and interacting. It was magical! Ha!

Here’s the video- we were live for 49 minutes:
