Lisa's long red hair is a dream to mermaids everywhere! Read on to get to know her better.
Tell us about yourself!
I'm a 22 year old girl living in Toronto with a passion for blogging and sharing all aspects of my life! I've been fashion blogging for about 3 years now and It's just amazing to be able to pursue something I absolutely love. What most people don't know about me is that I graduated at the University of Toronto last year with a History and Classical studies major, something completely opposite of what you might expect haha.
What initially inspired you to rock your beautiful red hair?
Well to be honest I've always been obsessed about changing my hair colour ever since I was a little girl. I remember I had these nasty thick blonde highlights (against my super black hair) when I was in 7th grade and it looked absolutely awful but I loved it because the idea of just dyeing my hair made me SO happy - it was like a visual expression of who you are in a way. Since then I've dyed my hair all the colours you could think of haha. I started off with safe colours like brown and blonde and eventually made my way to purple, pink, blue, teal, pastels, and now the red I have today! But I have to say red is the colour i've stayed with the longest because something about it just feels like me. It's loud and unapologetic and definitely a colour I won't be changing anytime soon... maybe.
What is your go-to everyday hair style?
I actually love to wear my hair down and straight the best. It sounds plain but my hair is super long, about 3 inches past my belly button. I worked so hard to take care of it and keep it healthy (despite all the hair dyeing) so I like to show the length off!
Describe what your ideal lazy day looks like?
Haha if only every day was a lazy day! Ideally I'd get to sleep in, order in sushi, marathon Friends on Netflix with my boyfriend and my two cats, order in sushi again for dinner, and nap. That would honestly be such a great day in my standards haha.
Favorite travel destination?
Favourite travel destination I've been to by far would be Orlando when I had my first Disney World experience! Something about being in the happiest place on earth, it makes me feel like a kid again. Favourite travel destination that I want to visit though would have to be Rome and Greece. I mean all that history I've learned when I was in University has to pay off somewhere right??
What's your go-to comfort food?
If my ideal lazy day wasn't hint enough, that would be sushi. I once went five straight days eating only sushi. 10/10 would do it again.
What's your favorite thing about your kitty, Appalonius lll? :)
Haha omg! My cat is actually named Appa, we call him Appalonius III because he walks around like he's royalty. He's also not a kitty anymore but actually 11 years old! We adopted him a year ago when my boyfriend suggested we take a look at some cute cats for fun at the cat adoption weekend (and totally not to adopt). But of course I saw Appa and told my boyfriend we had to have him and it was the best decision we ever made. My favourite thing about him is that sometimes in the middle of the night when me and my boyfriend are sleeping, he would run right up to my boyfriend’s face and meow super loud to wake him up and then run off. I think it’s hilarious.
Describe your biggest pet peeve!
My biggest pet peeve is when honesty is used as an excuse for being rude. There's a difference between 'just being honest' and saying something that doesn't need to be said. There's something about how everyone suddenly feels entitled to an opinion, especially when you grow up with social media and you're use to having a space to say whatever you want. If it's not nice, don't say it at all.
Name 3 things you absolutely can't live without!
First thing would have to be my phone because as generic as it is, it's something that's always with me (and everyone else let's be honest). Second thing would a bottle of Wrath/Poison from Arctic Fox (I'm serious this is a must), because my hair looks and feels so dry and brittle if I don't revitalize it every few weeks with it - and you know how important my hair is to me. Third thing would be my Canon EOS 60D DLSR because I take pictures and record everything. My SD card is basically a visual diary.
If you had one more day to live, what would you do?
Oh this is an easy one! I would do everything that could pump as much adrenaline in me as possible. I love anything fast and I love anything super high. Rollercoasters, sky diving, bungee jumping, you can count me in.
