What was your defining moment as a content creator/social media influencer?
Anytime that I meet someone from my online community in real life is so surreal and a pinch-me moment, EVERY TIME. It is so cool to see our little corner of the Internet translate in person and I am so lucky to have met so many kind and amazing people through it!
How do you hope to influence people through your social media platform? What can people expect to see when visiting your social media page(s)?
I just want everyone to be entertained and to find a bit of an escape any time that they come to watch one of my YouTube videos. Real life + a bit of material fun + a good laugh is what I hope people get when they find my page!
What do you predict will be the biggest trends of fall/winter?
I’m currently devouring my way through The Watcher on Netflix and am absolutely enamored by the closet of Naomi Watts in it! I’ve decided that it is the only look for me and will be switching up my closet to embody that wardrobe. As for trends, I’m loving the tall boots paired with skirts, big knits and cardigans, blazers, waistcoats, trench coats, an oversized leather jacket, all of it!
Next travel plans?
Listen, the BC weather can be a lot, and the rainy season is upon us and will be here for the next 6 months. Fingers crossed for a sunny break and some vitamin D very soon!
Favorite brands / places to shop?
There are so many brands that I love that it’s so hard to choose! I’m into any brand that does fabulous tailoring and who makes a great piece of knitwear. Some of my current faves are Frankie Shop, Toteme, Nili Lotan, H&M (their premium knits are A+), and I love the buyers at Matches Fashion – they always have the best designer picks!
What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry on?
I am guilty of wearing a sweatsuit and opting for maximum comfort on planes. However, if I have somewhere to be right off the plane, then I always go for a version of: a relaxed trouser, a white shirt & crewneck over top (because it’s ALWAYS cold on a plane), a pair of white sneakers, and a trench. You can never go wrong with that combo! Carry-on essentials are everything hydrating and travel sized: face cream, hand cream, lip balm, face mist, and a brow gel too! No sloppy brows for this gal!
What was the highlight of your stay with Modeliste at AMATTE?
Amatte was such a FABULOUS and gorgeous hotel and I feel so lucky to have gone there with the Modeliste team! I left feeling so inspired after witnessing such a fun group of talented & creative people doing their thing.
What’s a typical work day like for you?
The best part of being in the content creation space is that it’s very atypical and no two days are the same! I never know what each day is going to bring and that keeps it so exciting.
What’s your everyday make-up routine? Any products you’d recommend for our Modeliste readers?
I love simple & quick everyday makeup. Lately, I’ve been opting for a tinted sunscreen with concealer for the base, a bit of cream bronzer and a cream blush – always a fresh pink to make me look alive – a touch of powder, always a good slicked brow (the elf brow lift is a must for this), and a liner + gloss on the lip. I don’t always wear mascara everyday and it makes washing my makeup off at night SO much easier!
What’s something your fans would be surprised to know about you?
It’s been over 9 years online and at this point it feels like my followers know me better than I know myself! But one thing that seems to always surprise people when they meet me in person is that I am *exactly* the same in person as I am online. I’ve always thought that this was funny because I think, well of course, I’m not an actor, but I’ll take it!
Where do you gain inspiration for content? Any tips & tricks you’d like to share for those aspiring to have a career like your own?
This tip is redundant but I can’t stress it enough: if you are sharing & creating content online, BE YOURSELF and BE CONSISTENT! I love finding new creators who are posting amazing content, but always get sad when they stop posting! Keep going and stick with it & show me what’s in your fridge, lol!
What makes you different from other content creators?
I think that that’s a tough question to ask yourself! There are so many people who I love to follow along with online, and there are so many amazing fellow creators in the space who each have a unique perspective, voice, or style. I try to provide entertainment alongside relatable and fun advice for my community, and I hope that they would say the same!
What would you like to say to your fans?
I love you all and thank you for sticking with me & continuing to give me this space to create after so many years! XO
