If you didn’t already know, we’ve been sisters all our lives! Hehe…get it? Moving swiftly along, since it’s been some time since our last “Who Dis” post; we’ve had more followers and maybe didn’t cover certain topics, so here’s to another edition of getting to know us a little more, we hope you won’t regret it!
1- I despise toes: I mean, they’re on our feet to get us to and from, and occasionally you can get them pedicured, but yeesh! To me, toes are nasty! They’re like creepy extras that you really don’t need. Personally, I maintain my toes to be presentable, and I’m lucky that I don’t have cracking or any bizarre issues there, but other than that- they are FULLY ignored by me. #notsorry
2- I’m a photographer: I have been taking photos as a hobby for over ten years, but for the last couple of years, I decided to take it more seriously and to own the title of photographer. A lot of the photographs, you’ll see on the blog will be ones that I’ve taken myself- and I have to say that I find it much easier to post through the blog. If you feel so inclined, do check out my page Love Skylah Photograhy.
3- I can’t witness someone brushing their teeth: I really don’t have a justification or explanation for this, just the sound and visual of someone brushing their teeth gives me chills. I, oddly have no issues with brushing my own teeth, thankfully or I’d have no teeth. So the weird movies where people SHARE toothbrushes and are in the bathroom together while one brushes…Nah son, I’m not about that life. Just the sound and visual of someone spitting and hacking is one of the worse noises I have EVER heard. No no, never! Ever….
4- I LOVE sushi!!!: I will openly admit to having a partial unhealthy obsession with SUSHI. I love it so much, I have a Pinterest board dedicated to it, I’ve even blogged about it previously (The Pinterest Rabbit Hole!). I’m sorry, but not sorry because it tastes delicious; in another life I would be dating a sushi chef. #realtalk.
5- I love anything to do with lace: Yes, yes, potentially TMI, but I love nothing more than lace undies- I mean they’re beautiful and make you feel so H-O-T, even if it’s under your clothes! You’ll thank me later! Lace panels- romantic. Lace shirt- cute. Lace cushion-too far.
6- I love heels, but can’t be committed to the pain which comes along with those stilettos: I mean really shoes are awesome! I have a healthy obsession and love for them, but damn- can I walk in them?! I have salivated over endless amounts of shoes floating around the internet, it allows me to enjoy them as eye candy, doesn’t affect my wallet or my feet! #Winning!
7-I love thé: I legit dropped over $100 in David’s Tea the other day, but in my defence, I’m in the process of moving away so I was stacking up and saving it so that it could be a little reminder of home. Don’t judge.
8-Oh Stationery: I have a legit, near needing an intervention obsession with all things stationery, pens and pencils. It’s a love so deeply rooted that I have to actually limit myself or else it’ll spiral…and I mean SPIRAL.
9-Pantones: After starting my job about 6 years ago, I fell in love with pantones and all the variety and colour options! I’m a huge lover of colour and this speaks to my heart! I mean…look at the shot to the right- it’s gorgeous and you can be sure I have a Pinterest board dedicated!
1- I’m the baby of the famjam!: I’m the unfortunate one in the family who gets left behind in more ways than one. But it’s all good. Because it allows me to get things done, without being interrupted (hehe).
2-POCKETS!!!: Pockets… did I say pockets?! I LOVE any shirt, dress, skirt, you name it. If it has pockets that are built into it, I’m wearing it! I’m not quite sure where this slight obsession started, but I can promise you, that if my wedding dress doesn’t have pockets, I’m having a BACK UP DRESS!
3-Butterfly Girl: For anyone who knows me, you know that I have a slight obsession with butterflies. I cannot remember when this obsession started, but it has become a part of who I am. I remember once someone telling me about a relative dying who loved butterflies and how their grand-daughter was born a few days later and a butterfly stayed by the hospital window, as if it was watching over her. Maybe it’s how harmless they are, how gentle, unique and extremely detailed their “coat” is. Or maybe its the story I mentioned. Out of all the insects in the animal kingdom, I would take a butterfly flying around my face ANYDAY! #summersnotmyfriend
4- Sharpie Cray: So I have a little thing for colour.. or maybe a BIG thing (the size is still pending). Anyhow, I have found my #sharpie collection growing and it makes me happy! Is that weird?? I have already embraced that I’m of a special breed lol.
5-I’m a Sap: You’re probably wondering from my title, “uhh, where is she going with this?”. Well I’m a sap. Plain and simple. I love the simple, most heartfelt things in life. I don’t need a grand gesture, I just need something personal. I’m probably one of the easiest people to buy a gift for, which probably makes me the most difficult person to buy for after all. I recently got a “Forever Flower” to mark a special day. That gift may seem simple to you, but to me it made my day. #simplelife
6-Cooking: SOOO I’m not a cook, by any means. Baker, I got that. When it comes to cooking, between my mother and my other half, their afraid that starvation is in my future. How bad is that?! I’m sorry that I can’t wrap my head around the whole, “throw a bit of this in there and that..”, I need a list at least SOME instructions. Yes I can make a few basics, but in the end I WILL figure it out. That much I promise you! So no need to worry “I got you babe ;)”.
7-People Pleaser Alert!:Ok, I’m the first one to admit it. “Hi, my name is R2, and I’m a people pleaser. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I really don’t like the feeling of people being mad, upset of disappointed in me. It sucks and I hate it. I’m a helpful person, so when I feel as if I’ve let you down, I feel helpless. It’s a real work in progress. If you saw our previous post about New Year’s Resolutions, you will have noticed that one of mine was to try my heartiest to just let things be. It’s a great challenge to give myself and I’ll be honest, its not very easy, but my determination will get me through it!
8- HELP!: Is it bad that I love to do everything and anything that I can for the people that I care about? You need me, I got you! As long as I can actually help you, I’ll be there. #igotyou
9- Chai-Chai-Chai: I’ll be honest, I’m not quite sure where this obsession of mine started but…I love Chai. Chai tea, lattes, creams, you name it- if it says Chai, I’ve probably tried it, hehe. I even enjoyed a Chai latte from Starbucks as I worked on this blog post. #obsessed
10-BOOK WORM:It’s not just R1 who loves to read. Maybe it’s because Momma Bear would read me a book every night before I went to bed (R1 is keeping that tradition alive with mini R1 😉 hehe). But books are my way of entering a new world, where the pictures are up to my interpretation, but what other’s have given to me. I have recently gotten into the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. This series is a real page turner. I started watching the TV series after seeing a few promos that caught my attention (that’s how they hook you #goadvertisements). I can’t wait for my semester to finish, because I’ve been missing the joy of reading for pleasure verses for knowledge purposes, that will better my education level lol.
So that’s a little bit more about us, do you have some of the same likes/dislikes or obsessions? Drop us a line!
