25 Facts About Me Tag

Hi guys! I saw this Tag Post over on Stash Matter’s Blog so I thought I would give it a go as well! Thank you for the inspiration, Stashy! It’s always fun to provide a little insight into my life and other interests aside from beauty products.

What is your middle name?


What was your favourite subject in school?

English! I love reading and writing.

What is your favourite drink?

Either tea (Blueberry Green Tea or English Breakfast), water (I’m boring) or a nice Merlot!

What is your favourite song at the moment?

I change up what I’m listening to all the time. I really love music… but, I’ve been listening to Sitcom by Coleman Hell pretty much on repeat since it came out on his latest EP.

…I might be slightly biased… but, I would still love this song no matter who sang it. It’s so catchy and I love the lyrics.

What are your favourite kids names?

I don’t have any. It’s not really something I think about at all. However, I do have lots of future dog names picked out!

Do you participate in any sports?


What is your favourite book?

This is so hard. If you went based on how many times I’ve read it, it would probably be Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. I can never get tired of that book!

What is your favourite animal?

Dogs! I absolutely love the different personalities they have, their companionship and how loyal they are. If you want something a bit more exotic, then dolphins!

What is your favourite perfume?

Light Blue from Dolce & Gabbana

Favourite holiday?


Halloween 2013

Halloween! I love dressing up, it’s so much fun!

Have you graduated from high school?

Sure did! More years ago than I like to admit. Still feels like yesterday though.

Have you ever been out of the country?


Saint Lucia – November 2014

Yes! I live very, very close to the USA/Canada border so cross-border travel is part of the lifestyle here. However, I have also been to quite a few tropical destinations, as well as Europe.

Do you know any other languages?

Unfortunately, no.

Do you have any siblings?

Yes, one younger sister and one younger brother!

Favourite store?

Although there isn’t one anywhere near me (for either of these) it would be Sephora and Express. For something nearby, then I love a good trip to Chapters!

Favourite restaurant?

The Caribou. It’s my favourite place to go with my husband and their crab cakes are the best.

Did you like school?

Yes! Although I really couldn’t wait to graduate from University, there are days that I miss it.

Who are your favourite YouTubers?

I’ve said this quite a few times… but KathleenLights, Jaclyn Hill and Tati. I have been adding more to my subscription list, but none of them have made it to favourite status yet. I’m going to check out some of Stashy’s favourites that she listed in her blog post though!

What is your favourite movie?

This is a tough one… I could watch Romeo + Juliet a hundred times (the Leonardo DiCaprio version). I don’t know if I would call that my favourite movie though. I actually can’t even think of one right now which is really sad because I love movies. But, maybe I can’t choose just one?

What are your favourite TV shows?

Friends will always be one of my all-time favourites. I also really love Parks & Recreation. For current shows, I love Game of Thrones, Scandal, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham and Once Upon a Time. Normally Grey’s Anatomy would be on this list but I haven’t seen any of the current season yet. It’s on my PVR, but I haven’t forgiven it for last season…. yet.

If we are also adding Netflix shows into the equation then DareDevil and Jessica Jones would also have to be on the list.

PC or Mac?

We have both a Windows computer and a MAC in this house. I primarily use the MAC laptop though. I don’t really have a preference but the MAC was my birthday present this year as I wanted a laptop that I could use for blogging and that would run the Sims 4.

What kind of phone do you use?

Samsung Galaxy S5, although I’m not really fond of it at all. For my next phone I will be going back to the iPhone.

What is your height?


Do you have any pets?

2015-03-06 18.28.20.jpg

Max and Dex (oh my goodness was Dex ever in need of a haircut)

Yes! Two dogs, Max and Dex!

25 Facts Aboot Me Tag

Something different today instead of a review – I haven’t done a Tag in ages. I saw this on The Makeup Case and had to do my own spin on it. 😉

What is your middle name?
Hoarder. Stash Hoarder Matters is my name, don’t wear it out! 😛

What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I really loved Industrial Arts or erm it used to be called “Shop” class. I made a wooden bowl on the lathe, and a wooden piggy bank. It was an awesome class!

What is your favorite drink?

I’ve answered this before elsewhere so I’ll name another one I like: Jack fruit shake. I get this from our local Vietnamese restaurant and it is so refreshing. It tastes kind of like Neapolitan ice cream but lighter.

What is your favorite song at the moment?
I’ve had “Follow You Follow Me” in my head for a few weeks ever since I saw the animated short “Lily & the Snowman” from Cinaplex!

*Is someone cutting onions?* 😕

What are your favorite kids names?
I’m not planning to have kids but I like old fashioned names like Mabel and Beatrice. Someone told me they were thankful I wasn’t having kids to spare them those names. 😆

Do you participate in any sports?

What is your favorite book?

Not sure if it’s my favourite, but The Road by Cormac McCarthy had such a strong effect on me. It’s mostly super depressing but with a slight glimmer of hope. I actually cried reading this!

What is your favorite animal?
At the zoo, I always like to see the Orangutans. They seem so wise.

What is your favorite perfume?

  1. Thanks for the link back! 🙂
    Carly is such a cute name! 🙂
    I have tons of pet names picked out tooooo. I always imagine what it’d sound like if I was calling after them in a dog park. Some names just don’t translate well, haha!
    Those Halloween costumes are amazing! 😀
    I was surprised how much I like Express clothing when they first opened in Canada, I kind of dismiss them. I particularly like their pants – so many cuts and they come in petites!
    Aww Max and Dex look like they’re smiling too! How old are they? ❤

    • Haha, its so true, there are so many dog names that no matter how great they sound, do not translate to being called out loud.

      We went a bit all out for those Halloween costumes because for some reason (and I’m not entirely sure why) my husband’s nickname with his friends is “Batman” and of course.. I’m Robyn so it just fits!

      I love Express, I wish there was one closer to me. But, there is an outlet store 6 hours south. So, I go once or twice a year for a long weekend and stock up! I love their portofino shirts, I have one and I need more!

      Max is turning 5 next week and Dex is a little over a year old 🙂

      This was a fun tag, I’m glad I found it on your blog!! 🙂
