Hello You Guys!
I’ve been seeing this “50 Get To Know Me Questions” TAG floating around the Blog-World lately, and I really wanted to do it as well. I love filling these out, and letting you guys get to know me a little bit better. Hope you are all having an amazing month, and I will see you very soon with my “May Wrap Up”
1. Where did you grow up?
I grew up sort of all over Vancouver. Mostly in West Vancouver, with some brief appearances in Kits & Point Grey.
2. Where do you currently live?
We live in the heart of Downtown Vancouver, near the beach!
3. Who is your first best friend?
Elizabeth George. Still one of my closest friends, and one of my gorgeous Bridesmaids! I’m actually seeing her this evening, can’t wait.
4. How tall are you?
5’4. Probably 5’3, but I like to exaggerate.
5.Dogs or Cats?
I’m horribly allergic to cats, so I guess dogs (especially little ones). I don’t own either, I’m not sure I can commit to taking care of another living being.
6. Funniest moment throughout high school?
My entire high-school experience was a cringe-worthy-assortment of mortifying moments. I don’t even know where to begin? It was all a hilarious mess. I just thank God (or whoever up there) that Social Media wasn’t around in the early 2000’s. The things I would have done… I’m not sure I could ever live it down.
7. What year were you born?
8. Are you in/have you gone to college?
Yes I have, and I am very glad to be done with all of that. The best part of school was the “school-supplies” shopping.. or maybe the Residence parties.
9. What is your favorite drink?
Probably Diet Coke (which I know is just awful for you, but I’m in too deep now haha).
10. What is your spirit animal and why?
I hate this question, and I have no idea. Something sort of awkward, that lurks around.
11. You’re wearing perfume, what scent is it?
Glossier’s “You”. Hands down the BEST perfume ever. It’s the only perfume I wear, that strangers on the street stop me and ask about.
12. Tea or Coffee?
Coffee. Black. I’m boring.
13. What are your life goals?
To get though my un-read book-shelf, and I guess to always try to be happy. ALSO to finally organize our storage unit. Thrilling.
14. What sports do you play or have you played?
I’m incredibly non-athletic. All of my athletic adventures, were a complete disaster. I did quite well in Gymnastics as a kid, but I can barely even bend down to tie my shoes these days haha.
15. Have any books you read changed your life?
SO MANY. Recently “A Little Life” by Hanya Yanagihara is on the top of the list. Also “You” by Caroline Kepnes” is a huge Top 5 Fav, along with “Only Ever Yours” & “The Hunger Games”. This is an impossible question. I have a few fav every month.
16. What is your favorite movie?
Impossible to choose as well. Probably like “Lord of the Rings” or “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, but recently I’ve been obsessed once again with Horror Movies… “Hereditary”, “Creep”, “US”, “Into The Forrest” are some amazing ones. I LOVE to be creeped out. The deeper the scare the better. I like movies so scary, that weeks later I’m still thinking about it and getting chills.
17. Who are your favorite YouTubers?
Oh my GOD so many. I’m obsessed with watching You-Tube. I feel like it’s one of those things.. if you know you KNOW. My Top few are…. Tana Mongeau, Zoella, Trisha Paytas, Derek Gerard, Dodie, Orion Carloto, Alisha Marie, Niki & Gabi.. and so so many more. I love watching Book-Tube as well.. I get 99% of all my Book Recommendations there. Also they have incredible Photography videos, and even videos of people reviewing Fast Food. It’s all just a dream come true. I love watching Vlogs the most.
18. Do you speak any languages and how well?
Just English, and probably not even that well, haha.
19. Are you single or taken?
I got married exactly 6 months ago.. so quite taken!
20. What is your idea of your dream date?
Sleeping in, getting coffee and brunch.. heading to a Book-shop (not for a browse, but for like a solid “sit on the ground” 2 hours), getting some photos for Instagram, going for drinks and dinner.. and possibly a late movie (or just binge watching our current Netflix obsession). Also just staying home, ordering UberEats and reading all day.. that sounds like Heaven.
21. How long was your longest relationship?
My current one, almost 6 years.
22. How would you describe your fashion sense?
Girly, Pastel, Lots of Peter-Pan Collars & Tights. Basically like not sexy at all, and almost like how you dressed in the 4th grade.. but in a chic way? Haha.
23. What is your go-to hairstyle?
Long hair, thick bangs.
24. How many siblings do you have?
25. What is your go-to fast food order?
Some type of Grilled Chicken Burger, or literally Chicken Nuggets from ANYWHERE with 100 dips. I can’t stress enough how important the DIPS are. If the order arrives with zero dips, I’m devastated.
26. Do you use PC or a Mac?
P.C, mainly for Gaming, but also for Blogging.
27. Your most memorable vacation memory?
Sitting under the Eiffel Tower on Halloween, watching the light-show with Ry. Also the ham and cheese baguette we had that night, REALLY stands out.
28. What are your morning, evening routines?
I don’t have a “routine”. At night I usually watch Netflix until I pass out, and when I wake up it’s usually a mad dash to the alarm.. racing around to the shower. I’m NOT a morning person.. at ALL. I can never ever fall asleep, and when I do.. I never want to get up haha.
29. Do you have any bad habits?
So many. Lets not even get started. The older I get, the more I just embrace them all.
30. What is your favorite Netflix show?
I can’t choose, so as always I’ll pick a few. I think hands down it goes to the B.B.C.. “Doctor Foster”, “Broad-church”, “Requiem”, “Happy Valley” & “Skins”. All just incredible. Apparently I love a good British Murder Mystery.
31. Describe your first crush
He was normal enough.. I however was very creepy. I wrote lots of weird un-requited love letters, chased him around the playground.. and on “PJ Day” I literally TORE a piece of his PJ pants off, to save. I kept that little fabric scrap all year long, tied around a Teddy-Bear’s neck. Insane I know. Serial Killer stuff. I swear I’m less crazy now. Ryan’s PJ’s are just laying around, I don’t need to tear anything these days.
32. What theme parks have you been to?
Disneyland, Disney World, California Adventures, Play-land, Canada’s Wonderland.. I think that’s it? I really want to go to Alton Towers in the U.K, it looks amazing.
33. Who was your childhood best friend
Elizabeth & Tina
34. What is your favorite genre of film and why?
Horror. Just because I think it’s so creative, and I love the twists and shocks. I’m not a huge fan of Gore, I think a well-placed plot twist is much more effective. I guess Thriller is more the fav genre.
35. What was your dream job as a kid?
36. What is your coffee order?
Starbucks, Tall Blonde Roast. I ALWAYS get the Bacon & Gouda Breakfast Sandwich as well (with two Sriracha Packs).
37. What is your favorite thing to order on UberEats?
Spicy Thai Coconut Soup from “Rice and Noodle”. It’s INCREDIBLE. I get it level “9” spice. Uber Eats is DANGEROUS. They have McDonalds & Wendy’s on there, and it comes to the front door in 20 minutes! Amazing, but so dangerous.
38. Have you moved from home, where to and how was the experience?
I moved out of home when I was 17. I left home for College, and then after that moved around quite a bit, always in the Vancouver area. Over the last 10 years, I’ve lived within the same 10 blocks in Downtown Vancouver. This feels the most like home now. I hope to never leave the West End.
39. Have you ever failed at anything and what did you learn?
Math. Horrendously. It was Grade 9, and I was doing SO BADLY, that my parents made me a bet. If I passed, I could get my belly-button pierced. I think they made this deal, because I was literally NEVER going to pass…. but guess who got 51 fucking %.. ME. Still have my piercing, and love it as much as ever. I am still convinced my Math Teacher, gave me 51% out of pity.. but hey, I’ll take it.
40. Who is your celebrity crush?
Never typed so fast. Colin Firth. Colin Firth. Colin Firth. Also Kate Moennig from “The L Word”.
41. What are your pet peeves?
People talking during movies, people smashing into me on the sidewalk, people talking loudly on their phones on the bus… also people who spit on the sidewalk.. the worst. Also just people who are very rude to others. I was in line last week at Safeway, behind this guy who was screaming at the Cashier for NO reason. That kind of thing makes me so sad. Just STOP.
42. What do you do in your free time?
Read, take photos, watch Netflix, watch You-Tube, go to Matinees.. haha I’m SO interesting.
43. What is your favorite color?
Black & Anything Pastel
44. What social media are you addicted to?
Instagram & You-Tube
45. How do you get along with your family?
Very very well.
46. Are you afraid of the dark?
No, but I have a new clothing rack installed next to our bed..and I keep waking up and thinking it’s a PERSON.. and screaming SO LOUD “THERE IS A MAN IN HERE”. Sorry Ryan haha.
47. Biggest Phobia?
HANDS DOWN Flying. I would rather take a 40 hour bus ride, than fly. It’s become a full-blown Phobia. Also for some reason the Sky-Train really freaks me out. I’m pathetic haha.
48. Most Expensive Purchase You’ve Ever Made?
Probably my Camera, or our Apartment. Both were 100% worth it.
49. Weirdest Thing You Are Into?
Watching “Mukbangs” Online. It sounds insane, but I love watching people try new food items online haha. I like watching them try all the new Fast Food items, and give their Reviews. It makes me wish there was a Taco Bell Downtown! Other than the Mukbang’s.. it’s probably “90 Day Fiance”, I’m obsessed with that show too.
50. What are you happiest with in your life?
My Husband, My Family, My Job, Just everything. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.
