I know smoking is bad for you, but theres something sexy, edgy and mysterious about a black outfit and a cigarette in hand. What do you think?

Confidence has No Competition

"Fake it till you make it" is a saying I like to tell myself whenever I'm feeling low in confidence. My mom used to tell me this all the time when I was very young and I have continued to say it to this very day.

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

To always be true to yourself. Believe in yourself and all the amazing things to have to offer. Life will get shitty and throw many curveballs at you, but surround yourself with good people and keep that head on tight! 

If you had to move to another country or state beside the one you live in now, where would you move and why?

I recently was discussing this with a friend of mine. As much as I would love to live in New York, I've always seen myself living in California. So thats were I would go!

Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you believe it makes it go faster?

Only once and no I don't. 

If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? 

Definitely not! I would want to remain as humble and down to earth as possible. Money comes and money goes.

Lack of Colour

Lazy mornings, late afternoon coffees, galavanting through the city, stellar music & endless nights. I'm really enjoying this summer.

Travel Journal

Mini trips are the best trips! As much as I enjoy a week away from it all, sometimes all I need are a few days out of the city to reset. Last week I ventured up North to clear my head and to enjoy some fun in the sun. I spent my time sitting on the beach, swimming, enjoying my friend's company, laughing and eating frozen yogurt!

I've always considered myself a city person; I love the hustle and bustle, and all the endless things to do in Toronto, but I equally enjoy being surrounded by the country side and the beautiful greenery. I take this time to relax, reflect and to redirect my energy. I believe that it's very important to take time for yourself. I feel like we get lost in our every day activities such as school, work, social obligations, family, etc, and potentially fall into a deep fatigue. We deserve to escape reality from time to time and to disappear. Maybe you don't have the time to leave for a few days, so try to take a walk, or explore a new part of the city. Sometimes it's as easy as turning your phone off and indulging in a good book or old movie. One of my personal favourite movies is Breakfast at Tiffany's.

What do you like to do to relax or escape?

What is your perfect pizza?

The more toppings the better! 

What is the longest you have gone without sleep?

When I was in college, I spent an entire day at school (8am-6pm) then went to work to do an overnight shift (9pm-7am) and then I had to go back to school for 8am that morning. Worst. Day. Ever. I managed to get through but I was a complete write off for the next two days.

What is one thing that you do not or will not order at a restaurant?

I don't drink pop or soda. I don't like the taste of Coca Cola and I don't like the fizzy-ness. Ew.
