I was tagged by the very talented photographer @ashleydrody to share 10 random facts about myself! If you need some photos done she's your lady! Get ready to know me a little better 😘
1. I'm currently sweating it out in my first stats class & wishing I was better with numbers & that I was back on the beach like in my photo 😂
2. This photo was taken by my partner while he & I were on a long stretch of empty beach in Kauai. Is my favourite because I usually only take silly photos & I feel this perfectly sums up how happy we were with our toes in the sand! Beach bums for life 🌊✌🏼
3. I'm a nutritionist & birth doula when I'm not making jewelry & absolutely love attending births! There isn't an experience that is filled with as much raw & beautiful emotion. Helping life enter the world has been so humbling & moving. A few tears sneak out every time & I'm currently on the path to apply for midwifery!
4. I started making jewelry 2.5 years ago because I couldn't find a piece I was imagining & could afford any that I saw in stores, (student life!) so I decided to make my own. Someone commented on my piece & asked me to make them one & from there it was a whirlwind of self-taught techniques & I'm so happy to say that I finally found my creative side & have been able to shift more time into creating pieces that reflect the beautiful energy of those who request custom pieces or purchase my work 💜
5. I have secretly brought home two kittens on separate occasions in my life to surprise my family, then my partner & they are both the best! Surprise animals are awesome.
6. I lovelovelove nature! The silence of a mossy forest, waves crashing, sun on my face, flowers...everything, it's all so calming 🙏🏼
7. I moved to Vancouver from Edmonton after travelling SE Asia at 19 & I hate to use the cliche "it changed my life" but it did!
8. I'm going to live somewhere tropical one day & have a holistic birthing centre filled with crystals, cozy rooms, candles & all the obvious necessities for deliveries! Make your dreams happen!
9. In 1 month I'll be running 20km uphill in the Jasper-Banff relay
10. Afternoon naps in the sun are my favourite ☀️#beach #beachlife #tattoo #mandala
