What’s your secret dream job?

I wanted to be a figure skater when I was a child but now my not so secret dream job is to write for Vogue.

PEOPLE

Which famous person (alive or dead) do you turn to for inspiration?

Inspiration for me is fluid and changes frequently. Right now I’m really captivated by the Olsen twins. They’re entrepreneurs and visionaries when it comes to fashion.

If you could fly anywhere, where would you go this weekend and who would you bring with you?

I feel like Bali week, I would bring my boyfriend to enjoy a week with our feet up alongside a scenic view.

PLACES – VANCOUVER

At what restaurant did you last eat your favorite meal?

Cafe Brixton. Their vegetarian menu was amazing especially their eggplant parmigiana and roasted garlic as well as their fresh thyme and brie spread.

Where is your favorite place to unwind and have an early evening cocktail?

The Diamond in Gastown.

What’s your favorite thing to do that you can only do in Vancouver?

I love the drive across the Lions Gate Bridge. It’s a real calming feeling.

THINGS

What’s the one item in your closet you could never live without?

My little black dress or maybe leggings, when I’m not at an event I’m always in legging.

What do you ALWAYS have to bring with you when you travel?

My little black dress and a good pair of heels. Never underestimate a good pair of shoes.
