What is a beauty product you can’t live without?
I can’t live without my Boscia BB Cream. It primes and hydrates my skin and also gives great coverage and an all day glow.
What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I’m loving all the trendy prints out this season. I have a few pairs of print leggings and sweaters that I can’t get enough of.
What is your favourite cocktail?
I definitely am, and probably always will be, a wine kinda girl. I love a good pinot grigio but have been leaning more towards red lately.
Who is your style icon?
I would have to say Victoria Beckham. I love how she always looks so classy and sophisticated, even in jeans and a t-shirt.
Where is your favourite place to shop?
I would probably have to say Aritzia. For years now, I have never been able to walk past that store and not pop in and buy something. You can find everything from jeans, to a great blazer or comfy t-shirts there. You can always count on Aritzia to be on trend.
What is your all-time favourite item in your wardrobe?
My winter mukluks. I always look forward to winter so that I can wear them. They’re comfy and warm and look super cute too! My feet never get cold in the winter.
Where is your dream vacation destination?
I recently went on a Mediterranean cruise that stopped in Santorini, Greece for the day. I was blown away by how beautiful and quaint it was. I definitely want to go back one day and explore the rest of the Greek Islands too!
What is your favourite thing to do in your city?
I love trying out new restaurants around town with my girlfriends. It’s a perfect way to get dressed up for no reason other than to catch up with friends and eat some great food.
What do you always bring as a hostess gift?
I really think it depends on the occasion but, you can’t go wrong with a good bottle of wine to help with relaxing after all the hostess party planning. I also love to decorate, so a gift for the home is always a fun gift to give.
