I found these “about me” questions on fellow blogger Lena’s site and loved the candid, honest aspect of them. With blogging and social media, you try and portray yourself to the the best of your ability, but inevitably can end up only posting the “good” things and the “nice” photos.  I love my life, but it is not all beautiful clothes, photoshoots and travel.

So get to know me (more or less) in 67 questions.

1. What is your middle name?

2. When is your birthday?
September 24

3. What is your zodiac sign?

4. What is your favorite color?
Black.. am I allowed to say that?

Yes, a beautiful black boxer. She’s more of a daughter than a pet.

Born in LA, raised in Vancouver.

18. Have you ever been to the hospital?

19. Have you ever gotten in trouble with the law?
