This is your first feature with Fitness Gurls Magazine and I bet it’s not little other shoots you’ve done before. What’s your favorite thing about your Facetime Photoshoot with Fitness Gurls?
I’ve never done a FaceTime photoshoot before… I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect but it was so easy and laid back. Kate is wonderful. We actually have so many things in common. We both have ties to Edmonton, Alberta. She lives there and my boyfriend grew up there. Going to Edmonton was my first experience in Canada. We just laughed and talked while she shot for thirty minutes or so. Reminiscing about Tim Hortons, hockey, and our pups. It was SO simple. We both had the same vision in mind: 90s laidback, cool very Calvin Klein-esque. She sent me a picture from a mood board about formatting it as layered jpg’s and as a true 90s baby, I fell in love. I think she captured it perfectly.
Since being on lockdown has your wine drinking or your book reading has gone up higher?
Reading books… I stopped drinking two and a half years ago. It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done for myself. I’ve read a lot of nonfiction the past few years but just bought Little Fires Anywhere. Most of the books I read are about spirituality or health and wellness… this will be a nice change of pace. I’m really looking forward to it.
What’s a book or a tv show you can absolutely recommend since we’re all quarantine away?
Ooh such a good question. I have a working list in my notes of recommendations… I love getting into a good show or series. We’ve always been homebodies, even before the quarantine. These are some of my favorites: Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, Ozarks. Always looking for more. We recently started watching The Walking Dead… five seasons in… four more to go!
What’s one thing you will down first when you’re allowed to really go outside?
Date night. In a restaurant. Six feet away. I’ve cooked so much during the quarantine. I’m looking forward to taking Shel to one of our favorite spots like Carbones. He’s been such a good sport over the past few months. These might be our favorite Two words: spicy rigatoni.
