Here are the answers to the 11 questions I was asked:

What is your blog about and why did you choose that theme?

My blog broadly can be described as a travel blog. I created it when I did a semester abroad in Lyon, France but have also written about my numerous adventures in Africa and other countries in Europe. I tell stories, give tips and showcase some of the most beautiful places around the world.

Where are you from?

Thunder Bay, Ontario! You don’t know where that is? That’s okay, most people don’t (even Canadians). It’s in northwestern Ontario, a 16 drive from Toronto, an 8 hour drive from Winnipeg and a 6 hour drive north from St.Paul, Minnesota. It has a population of 100,000, no Sephora and winters that get to below -40 degrees celcius. Why do I live here? I question that all the time. The summers here are amazing though. There is so much hiking to do and it’s an absolute playground for anyone who enjoys activities outdoors.


What’s your favorite country to travel to?

Okay this is the most difficult question to answer!! HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO CHOSE JUST ONE?! To be fair, there are many places I have never been so I can’t say which would be my favorite. But from where I have been, I have really enjoyed travelling in Greece, Kenya, Western Canada and of course Lyon, France.

What’s your favorite beauty brand?

If it weren’t for my sister I would still be buying all my makeup from the drug store. I know nothing. Someone help me. I have moved up in the world of beauty since living in Europe though and from the nice things I do own, I would say that MAC cosmetics is my favourite ❤

What’s your favorite handbag?

Michael kors jet set tote.

Which post was the most challenging to write?

How I caught the travel bug was the most difficult post to write for numerous reasons. For one I was so vulnerable in expressing where I was mentally at that time, and what that meant to me. Second, it was such an important time in my life that I wanted to write it exactly how it happened yet as memory serves I knew a lot of it was distorted and that bothered me. It took me a while to piece everything together as perfectly as I could and I would not have it any other way. To this day, that post has a special meaning to me.

Who’re your favorite three bloggers?

What’s your favorite YouTube channel?

I honestly am the worst when it comes to social media. Like I am that 4o year old mom to can’t figure out how to take a picture on her laptop. I don’t understand technology 95% of the time, and it is a miracle I have a blog that works (trust me when I say it took a LONG time to set up and even when I want to change something like no way in hell that is happening). My point is, I really don’t know youtubers, if I need to know something I just search it and that’s that. So I would have to say that arcticsabrina is my favourite and online youtube channel that I know. It’s great!

What’s your favorite music?

Jose Gonzalez !! Or any song that makes you want to go on a road trip or hop on a plane

Who is your favorite author?

Okay honestly I have not read for pleasure in the past 4 years because I’ve been swamped with school readings. I do really love Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer however!!
