I haven’t done a q&a on my blog yet and my “about me” page is pretty broad, so I figured I would share a little more about myself so you can get to know the girl behind the screen. I’d love if you shared a bit about yourself in the comments below - I’d love to learn more about you!
Do you believe in karma?
To a certain extent - yes. I think if someone is mean or rude, people surrounding them won’t be as likely to help them or offer them positive opportunities. The way someone acts rubs off on others.
Short hair or long hair?
I’ve actually had both (well not a pixie cut but definitely a short bob). I prefer medium length hair - so right in the middle. I find long hair is too much work (shampooing, styling, etc.) and short hair does need a lot of maintenance too!
Do you wear makeup every day?
No! Definitely not! But I do really enjoy putting on makeup when I do! I probably wear makeup 5 times a week - really whenever I go out for the day (to work, to go to ikea, to hang out). So yeah, I don't feel the need to wear it all the time but I love makeup!
How many countries have you been to?
Um… 5 altogether:
France, the United States, Costa Rica, Panama. And I live in Canada!
What star sign are you?
I’m a Leo and I think most of the qualities are pretty accurate. But I don’t pay attention to horoscopes and stuff!
How do you turn around a bad day?
You get yourself a latte, my friend! When I'm overwhelmed, stressed, or sad, I try to remove myself from a situation, breathe and re-caffeinate. That usually gets me back to a positive mindset.
Extrovert or introvert?
I think I’m an extroverted introvert. While I do fine working and interacting with new people (every job I’ve had requires lot’s of people skills!), I really enjoy my alone time and being in groups can drain me. Everyone says that I’m grumpy after work and it’s purely because I have to be very extroverted and positive all day and need some time to re-centre myself.
How do you spend your days?
I'm in grad school right now so I spend about 3 days a week in class and then I work a retail job the rest of the time. For awhile I was also working at an art gallery doing educational tours but that was too hard to keep up with school and my commute.
And when you have a day off?
I usually spend it running errands! I'm an early bird so I like to wake up and get things done. I do love thrifting so if I squeeze that in, I will. I love winding down in the evenings with a hot cup of tea!
