Favourite Quote: I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count -- Jack Dawson
Favourite Song: It's between Send me on my way--Rusted Root (everytime I hear it, it makes me cry), or Somewhere over the rainbow Israel Kamakawiwoʻole! :)
Can’t live without: The ocean...! and maybe ice cream <3
Best Life Advice: Everything in life happens for a reason. Who you meet, what you do, the decisions you make. Your gut instinct is your subconscious pushing you to make these decisions because the universe has a master plan for you! Don't second guess the decisions you make. Even the bad ones happen to make you a stronger person in the end. Along with that, when bad things do happen, just know that better things are waiting for you at the end of it all and you will be okay.
Fav Coffee Order: I don't drink coffee as much as I used to, but I used to LOVE a mocha with almond milk and extra chocolate
Anything else you want to share: This year has been an incredibly tough year for us all! I can only imagine what half the world went through and is still going through. I graduated college in the midst of the pandemic, I had a job out of school as an Event Coordinator. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, I lost my job. It was a very difficult year, I just felt lost. I felt like there was nothing left for me to be passionate about. I decided to start my own business. It took some time to really come around to it and feel confident with the plunge, but I figured, why not? What do I have to lose! I started a candle Business and I am so proud of my little baby! I just wanted to share this to help people realize that anything is possible and just when you think you are at your lowest point, good things are around the corner and even when you think you've lost everything and who you are, I can promise the answer is within, you just have to find it.
