All About Me: Vogue’s 73 Questions

Hello my sweet friends, Happy Belated Canada Day to my fellow Canadians. I hope you are not to bummed about the fact that we couldn’t all celebrate together, and I hope you had a lovely Canada Day!

So what better way to tell you all more about myself than with Vogue’s 73 Questions. I’m so sure some of you have seen an example of this video done on YouTube with some of the worlds most popular musicians and actors, but if you haven’t I have included a link you can click here, to show you an example of what it is.

Let’s get into it!

It’s not one of those things where you wake up and you’re like “I’m in love with so and so” it’s this gradual feelings of awareness over time that amounts to it.

    1. SOUL SISTER! Yes YES YES. I double on garlic and onions, they are my favourite. I adore harry styles, I’ve been nursing a crush on him for 10 years so I think I’m pretty much doomed. I was supposed to see him in concert actually this weekend but it’s now postponed for September 2021.
