F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pronounce your name?
It rhymes with sassy, gassy, pick your poison... everything my name sounds like is essentially insulting.

How old are you?
25 (though I'll forever feel like a preteen).

Who/what/where/when/why your glasses???
This must be the most frequently asked question (though not necessarily in those exact words) I get, which surprised me at first!
My glasses are always prescription (you know the big letter at the top of vision charts? Yup, I definitely can't read [or see...] that without them) and have always been purchased at Pearle Vision. The frames that I had when I started blogging/YouTube-ing (up until the end of June '13) were men's Giorgio Armani frames and the glasses that I currently sport are men's Ray Ban sunglasses frames (women's glasses tend to be too small for my eyes/face and this time around sunglasses were more flattering than regular glasses #whatislife).

HOW DO YOU GET YOUR TEETH SO WHITE???
Aside from the glasses inquiries, this is by far one of the most frequently asked questions I receive (especially on my videos) and unfortunately I don't have a very helpful answer… I just take good care of my teeth.
I used Crest White Strips a couple of times in high school (8-9 years ago *weeping because I'm old*) but other than that I don't whiten my teeth. The toothpaste I use, and have used for close to 10 years now, is the Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening + Scope "Minty Fresh Striped"; it's got the best taste, best suds ability, and just works better than any other toothpaste I've ever tried. My routine is nothing out of the ordinary, like said, I just brush my teeth twice a day (in the morning after breakfast and before I go to bed at night), floss at least once a day, use mouthwash each night, avoid staining drinks (red wine, sodas, coffee, tea, etc.), and have never smoked. That's it, really!!

How tall are you?
5'2'' (on a good day).

What kind of camera do you use?
I shoot photos for my blog on an Olympus SP-56OUZ; I filmed my YouTube videos with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 and, as of 7/20/14, I primarily record my videos with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.

What is that accent!?!
While I don't notice it myself, I'm often told (even at home) that my Minnesotan accent is quite prominent. Oofta!!

What kind of cat do you have?
My cat (Galileo) is a blue lynx point Siberian. Most of my close friends and family are severely allergic to cats so, since Siberians are hypoallergenic (they produce less of the protein that causes cat allergies), I got this breed so that I wasn't completely isolating myself from the human race.



Have any other questions? Don't hesitate to ask!

  4. My boyfriend is severely allergic to cats. I've wanted a cat for so long. What is the hypoallergenic "success rate" of Galileo? Are there people in your life who are severely allergic to cats? If so, do they have a bad reaction to Galileo? I've been researching this and its hard to find any info. I don't live with my BF so he won't be in contact with the cat, but he even reacts to dander from cat owners. Thank you for your help!

    1. I would imagine he wouldn't fare too well with a Siberian either then, I'm sorry to say :( My brother is highly allergic to cats (as well as a couple friends who have visited my apartment/Galileo) and he/they had very minor reactions… just a few sniffles but that took days of staying here to develop. However, my stepdad is SEVERELY allergic to cats and even five minutes of being in my apartment he was sneezing and plugged up. I hope this helps!

  5. Thank you so much for the response. It does help to hear some examples. You are so lucky you get to have a cat! :)

  6. I just happen upon your YouTube channel, then to your blog. I'm loving both of them. You have a geeky/nerdy aura that mirrors my own. :)

    I'm also from Minnesota! Most of my family lives in the Fargo/Moorhead area.

  7. I totally thought that Galileo was a Ragdoll... oh geesh, cat breeds, I don't understand them! Can you tell me the story of how you got him? Breeder? Adopted? Wanted a best friend? Haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They do look similar but if you look closely there are big differences between the breeds ;) And yes, the story is slightly short but sweet!! I knew I wanted a cat (I've always loved cats but couldn't have them because of family allergies) the minute I moved out of dorm housing. I looked around to see which breeder seemed the best/kindest/had the cutest kittens (I'm just being honest haha), chose the one, saved up money/paid the fee, and then I was on the list! I went to visit the kittens when it was my turn; I was looking between two kittens the breeder had at the time (I knew I wanted a boy) and the first one I picked up and played with just didn't seem too interested in me. So I grabbed Galileo and he instantly crawled up my chest to kiss/sniff my face then plopped into my lap for the next hour or so! He definitely chose me and I'm so truly blessed to have him in my life :) Hope that was interesting hah!

  8. I love your makeup in your profile picture. What shade of lipstick are you wearing? I'm going to guess Plumful by Mac?

    Replies
    1. Thanks Reyna!! Knowing me that's a good guess but it's actually the Revlon Matte Balm "Shameless" with the OCC Lip Tar Stained Gloss "Dekadent" on top :)

    2. Ah ok. That's actually a quite nice way to wear "Shameless" without it being all up in your grill. hahaha.

  9. Galileo is gorgeous, I LOVE Siberians, has anyone that is allergic to cats have any reaction to him?

  12. Ello Cassie,
    I was just curious of why you disabled the comment section of your videos lately. I went to leave a "I love tipsy cassie" comment but it wasn't available. Im not sure if you've already addressed this but as being a nosey person that I am I had to ask. :)

    1. Sorry about the multiple posts. My phone decided to freak out and glitch :(

    2. lol no worries, I deleted all of the extra comments from/for you ;)

      And I've gotten this question a couple of times actually and it's actually not me who has disabled comments!! I'm not sure why this is but it seems like if you access my videos through YouTube on a smartphone then the comments section shows up as being "disabled"... if you go through your computer though you can see the comments and leave comments that way perfectly fine. I'm really not sure what has caused this but I'm sorry for the trouble it may be causing you :(

  19. I was just watching your 50 intestine facts about me video, and you mentioned an allergy. I was wondering what that allergy could be because it is so life treating? Also I love tour channel so much, I love the honesty and postivity and also how much effort you put into your videos, thanks Cassie for being a great content creator.

  21. Hi Cassie, First off thank you for making YouTube videos and being so "human" in them. Second, my gosh you are beautiful!! :) I've watched a good amount of your videos and you are just so adorable! Your personality is great and watching your videos you make me feel like your my best friend which a Lot of these YouTube's dont have that quality. I watched your video on your skin and I hope that you find something that works for you and your skin is okay. I still pick at my upper lip and ends of my fingers. I am always so anxious and that's the only relief I have, but I really enjoy your videos. I really liked how your skin is like mine. I thought foundation was supposed to go on differently and I was the only one with skin where the foundation went on different and not as smooth as these ladies on YouTube etc...but I'm glad you have skin like me. It makes me feel better about myself. They shouldn't be so deceptive (is that a word? Eek) as how they have such flawless skin or like one pimple. That just isn't human haha. But thanks again for making videos, I really reAlly like them. Also you dress cool!

  23. Hey Cassie, my skin seems to be a lot like yours, I have very oily skin and it's pretty sensitive. What's your favorite foundation? I'd like something that has more of a natural look and stays on all day. I love your videos!! thanks for what you do :)

  24. Hi Cassie, my name is Bayli and I was wondering what kind of products you enjoy using for your hair. My hair is very fine and fragile and I am now dealing with a lot of thinning at the old age of 24... I am on the hunt for nice hair products. Thank you! Oh and you are doing a wonderful job with your channel! You, Jaclyn Hill, Tati, and Lisa Eldridge are the only people that I enjoy watching! ��

I have the hard candy camouflage foundation & love it buuuuut the one I bought is way too light and I can't return it because I lost the receipt so hey if you don't want that one anymore I'll take it off your hands! ;) love your videos! Literally watch them hour after hour.
