The Girl Behind the Blog: Get to Know Me!

It’s been a little over 3 years since I first started this blog! I realized that I’ve never really done an introductory post and while it might be a little too late for that, I figured a “Blog Edition” of the “Get to Know Me” tag would be a fun alternative! I’ve compiled a list of 21 Questions from the tag and you’ll find all of my answers to them down below!

Are you named after someone, if yes then after whom?

My mom grew up in England and is a HUGE Rolling Stones fan! The inspiration for my name came from their song … you guessed it … “Angie!”


Do you have any siblings?

I have one younger sister named Amber! We actually started this blog together back in 2016 under the name Alexis & Jayde, but eventually decided it was better that I rebrand and continue on my own! She still helps out as my photographer for a lot of my photo shoots though!


Do you have any pets?

I have a 4 year old pet rabbit named Flynn! He’s a holland lop and is super precious! Bunny cuddles are the best!


Do you speak any other languages?

Sadly the only language I can speak fluently is English. Growing up in Canada, it was mandatory to take French classes through Grades 4-9 and I actually quite enjoyed learning it. I chose to continue taking the class past the ninth grade, but when you don’t speak it frequently in every day life, it becomes really easy to forget!


Are you on time or always late?

On time for sure! In fact, I prefer to arrive 10 minutes early to everything! I start getting anxiety otherwise! An old manager of mine used to laugh because I would often call and give her a heads up that I was stuck in traffic and might be late, only to end up arriving 20 minutes early! She called it one of my “Angie-isms!”


Are you more of a tidy person or a messy one?

I hate to admit it, but I’m definitely a messy person. But in my eyes, it’s an organized mess! Even in all the chaos, I still know where everything is! Most of the time anyway …


If you could be anything, what would you be?

I’d love to be the editor of a popular fashion magazine! Growing up, I was always interested in journalism but also dreamed of being involved in the fashion industry. Being an editor would give me the best of both worlds!


What is your favourite food?

My all time favourite is Ramen! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!


What is your favourite place to travel to?

A: My favourite place to travel to is Japan! I try to make a trip there at least once a year. Tokyo will always have my heart!


What is your favourite holiday?

Christmas is definitely my favourite! I love all of the traditions that come with it and everyone just seems to generally be in a better mood around the holidays and that makes me happy!


What is your favourite TV show?

Like many others, I grew up watching Friends and I’m still obsessed with it to this day!  I love to have it on in the background while I’m working!


What motto do you live by?

Carpe Diem is the first one that comes to mind. Life is short and I want to make the most of the time I have!


Who is your style icon?

For years my style icon has been Lauren Conrad! Her style is super feminine and classy and she definitely inspires me!


What is your guilty pleasure?

I just love watching Reality TV! I watch so many different shows but I never get tired of re-watching The Hills! It will always be an all time favourite!


What is one bad habit that you have?

I slouch a lot! It’s a habit that I’m trying to kick, but it takes a lot of work!


What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when people invade my personal space! I can get a little bit claustrophobic so I try to avoid large crowds if I can.


Do you consider yourself an early bird or a night owl?

Neither! Growing up, I was definitely a night owl. But these days, I find myself passing out early and sleeping in late! I could probably sleep through a whole day if I tried!


What is your zodiac sign?

I’m a gemini, through and through! Every description of gemini personality traits that I have ever read has been on point with my personality!


What is one makeup product that you never leave the house without wearing?

Eyeliner hands down! I never leave the house without my signature winged liner!


What is one item on your bucket list?

My bucket list is huge but one thing that I hope to do soon is to ride in a hot air balloon!


What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend?

I love seeking out new brunch places! I’m always on the quest to find the best brunch spot in whatever city I’m in at the time!


I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me and my life! Leave a comment down below and telling me a fun fact about yourself! I’d love to get to know you a little better!

XO Angie
