Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Calgary, Alberta. I lived there for 21 years and I plan on returning one day as all my family currently lives there. It’s one of the top five largest cities in Canada but it’s extremely affordable in comparison to other big urban centres. One of my life goals is to buy a house before I turn 30 and moving back to Calgary would allow me to do this. I also think it’s a great city to raise a family with lots of activities.
Where do you currently live?
I currently live in Kelowna, BC. I moved here in May of 2018 to be with my boyfriend who relocated here for work. Kelowna is beautiful and is one of the top tourist destinations in Canada with its scenic wineries and lakefront. The weather is amazing, with the average temperature in the summer being 25 to 28 degrees Celsius. I struggle with the small size of Kelowna and limited cuisine options. The diversity in the city is extremely lacking as well, and the cost of living is very high which makes it difficult to live here sometimes.
Who is your first best friend?
My best friend’s name is Emily and we met when we were three years old. We’ve been friends our whole lives and I don’t know what I would do without her!
How tall are you?
I’m going to say I’m 5’2 and a half. I’m tiny.
Dogs or Cats?
I’m sorry to all my cat lovers, I’m a dog person.
I love pizza and pasta, and all carbs..
Funniest moment throughout high school?
Oh gosh… high school feels like so long ago but at the same time it feels like just yesterday. I loved the high school I went to and I wish everyone could have my positive experience. A lot of funny moments took place in grade 10 drama class. We had a sharing circle where we would sit and talk about random things but of course I was talking too much one day so I got sent to sit at the top stairs alone in solitude. It was pretty funny.
Are you in/have you gone to college?
I have a degree in communications with a major in public relations! I’ve always wanted to be a elementary school teacher and I think about going back to school to take education.
You’re wearing perfume, what scent is it?
I love Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream, it’s my all time favourite.
Tea or Coffee?
Tea! I actually can’t drink anything with caffeine in it or my heart starts beating really fast and I feel like I’m going to pass out.
What are your life goals?
As mentioned above, one of my life goals is to buy a house before I turn 30, and I also want to build a life that I can be proud of! Most of my life goals revolve around building a family and sharing my life with my loved ones.
Have any books you read changed your life?
Yes! I read a book in grade. 8 called the Power of One. It changed my life forever and I highly recommend reading it.
What is your favorite movie?
I don’t think I have a favourite movie, but I really love Batman the Dark Knight and the Titanic.
Who are your favorite YouTubers?
I watch a lot of YouTubers so it’s hard to pick which ones are my favourites, but I love Aspyn Ovard, Brittneyandbaby and Tara Michelle.
Do you speak any languages and how well?
I took “advanced” French throughout high school and they said I would be fluent by the end of grade 12 but I was not! I can understand French if I hear someone speaking it but I’ve lost all of my ability to speak it and conjugate verbs and all that fun stuff. So really, just English.
Are you single or taken?
Taken! I have been with my amazing boyfriend since high school and I can’t wait to spend my whole life with him.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
Very feminine, lots of florals and pastel colours.
What is your go-to hairstyle?
I usually just wear my hair natural or I put it in a bun! I’m lucky that I have straight hair, but it’s also very fine which makes it difficult to style.
How many siblings do you have?
I have two stepsiblings, but I was an only child until I was a teenager!
What is your go-to fast food order?
I love getting two baby burgers with cheese from A&W. I also love Smashburger, but they don’t have one in Kelowna ☹
Do you use PC or a Mac?
Mac! I used to have a PC but it was so painfully slow and always gave me viruses so I will never go back.
Your most memorable vacation memory?
I swam with dolphins when I was younger and that was pretty cool. Also seeing the Eiffel tower lit up at night was an amazing experience.
What are your morning, evening routines?
I should do a separate blog post about this!
Do you have any bad habits?
Procrastinating and being lazy!
Tell us one thing about you that we wouldn’t know?
I have a lot of fears! I’m scared of spiders, flying, all insects, dying, you know, mostly everything.
I hope you learned a little bit more about me!
