Be You

I like being weird. I like being creative. I really enjoy making people laugh. I am very shy, but open up quickly. I trust everyone, which might be my downfall. I love to paint, although sometimes it doesn’t look the best.  I find it fundamentally strange that not all people like sweets. I love doing squats. I wear combat boots with floral dresses. I love studded…everything. I love “punk” style. I don’t wear a lot of make-up. I miss working for PETA, I love animals. I rock a lot of polka dots. I write letters for Amnesty International for Violence Against Women. I used to write for Greenpeace. I think being green is super sexy. I like wearing dresses over pants. I smile at everyone. My favorite place is the beach down by my Nanny’s house in Prince Edward Island, it has been my secret getaway since I can remember. I am a star-gazer, I have been asking for a telescope since I was 11 after my parents bought me a book about Space. My dream as a child was to be a Marine Biologist. I love mermaids and cotton candy. I love adventures. If you think it’s too dangerous, chances are I am going to want to try it. I don’t have any tattoos. I think if I get any tattoos at all, I’d want to be covered in them. My favorite colour is white (it’s a blank canvas), followed closely by black and gold. My favorite school memory is being in Grade 3 in Guelph, Ontario and setting Monarch butterflies free in the park and looking up at them while they flew away. I’ve been told I have an old soul. I love the idea of living in Paris and seeing the Eiffel tower out my bedroom window while eating Laudree macarons in bed. I love stories about historical women like Cleopatra, Anastasia and Marie Antoinette. I have a fascination with reading about mysteries of the world. I totally believe in aliens. My favorite flowers are hydrangeas, peonies and magnolias. I can’t sing to save my life, but I’ll do it with enthusiasm. I can’t sleep with socks on. I love wearing high heels. I used to collect Archie comics and stamps. I went through a rebellious stage when I was 17 and shaved my head like Keira Knightley in Domino. I don’t know how to swim. I love to dance. I am most calm and relaxed when in the bath or while doing yoga. I am told I have infectious laughter.
See, I may work in the fashion and beauty industry… but I have a lot more to me than that. Yes, I am a fashionista, ex-model, beauty pageant queen, actress, artist, bookworm, with an overactive imagination. I am proud to be ME. Be irreplaceable. I want to light up the world with kindness and laughter all while wearing my studded Christian Louboutin booties and my Alice + Olivia floral dress that makes me feel like a princess.
Take me as I am or watch me as I go.
