I had a blast attending Foursquare Day on Tuesday night! The evening was full of fun, networking, laughter, delicious beverages, yummy food (thanks for the delish veggie wrap Lou Dawg’s!), goofy photo ops and great giveaways!
The Beer Academy was buzzing with social media professionals and app nerds galore, and hosted (as you now know) by the lovely web mavens Nat & Marie, who we were proud to dress for the occasion.
I chose to wear this pastel coloured number by Brenda Beddome which I topped with a leather jacket for a little rock and roll edge… as well as this hat and glasses… for a… cartoon Johnny Depp look? Okay okay… they were photo props, relax!
One of the night’s highlights was this fun make-your-own-gif station from SweetGif – I of course had to sneak in some FC promo – Do YOU follow us on Twitter yet? (do it… or else…)
Other great perks: I got a yummy Pilsner from Creemore Springs and a brand new case for my iPhone thanks to iSkin!
Thanks to Karly from Foursquare Day, Nat & Marie for promoting FC so beautifully and all the other partners and attendees for a wonderful 4/16! See you next year!
We are thrilled to be style partners for Foursquare Day Toronto 2013 and to be dressing it’s stylish and savvy hosts Nat & Marie! What’s Foursquare Day? Who are these ladies? Read on, friends…
What is Foursquare?
Foursquare is a free app that helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. When you’re out and about, use Foursquare to share and save the places you visit. And, when you’re looking for inspiration for what to do next, we’ll give you personalized recommendations and deals based on where you, your friends, and people with your tastes have been.
Whether you’re setting off on a trip around the world, coordinating a night out with friends, or trying to pick out the best dish at your local restaurant, Foursquare is the perfect companion.
What is Foursquare Day?
Foursquare Day is celebrated on April 16th (get it? 4/16 is four squared!) each year in many different ways all over the world.
In Toronto an event is hosted annually full of networking fun and freebies! This year’s event is TONIGHT at The Beer Academy (75 Victoria Street – doors at 6pm) and is hosted by web darlings Nat & Marie.
Who are Nat & Marie?
Nat & Marie are hosts of their own online talk show on which they give their commentary on online pop-culture, viral videos, interesting online content, digital news, celebrities (or ceWebrities as they are referred to on the show), and other parts of internet culture like trending topics.
Fresh Collective on Foursquare
To celebrate our dive into the world of Foursquare we set up our first special! From now until April 28th when you check in for the first time to any Fresh Collective location on foursquare you can redeem a free in-store mini makeover!
Book in advance to visit us one hour before or after normal store hours! You get personalized service, and you can bring some key pieces from home you want to mix and match with.
• pre-interview to get to know you, your shape your needs
• prep time so we are ready with ideas and suggestions -1 hour one on one as we try things, put together outfits etc.
Value: $100 + HST
You will learn how to mix and match with confidence, get a lot of mileage out of what you buy, what to look for so you always buy things you will love and wear, what “rules” you can use when looking for shapes, necklines and so on.
Hope to see some of you out at tonight’s event – stay tuned to our social media channels for pictures and updates!
