Happy Monday! Answering your questions from my DMs, my NINETYFOUR87 and personal Instagram account below (my blog Instagram is deactivated for safety and mental health reasons!)
DO YOU SEE YOURSELF LIVING IN TORONTO FOREVER?
I love Toronto, it’s home but I don’t see myself living here forever. I want to build a home with a big backyard where my kids and dogs can run and play around. I want to build a house with a view of the mountains/water. City living is great for now because I’m young and not interested in having kids or getting married anytime soon, but not ideal (for me personally) to raise a large family in a busy city.
IF YOU EVER HAVE KIDS ARE YOU GONNA SWITCH TO A MOMMY/LIFESTYLE BLOG?
I am private now and don’t put myself/life out there for the world to see. When I have kids, there is zero chance I will ever put my kid out there. Share products I use? Sure, maybe. But my job as a parent is to love, care, protect, support and fight for my children – not to monetize them for content, money and sponsorships. Children are young and vulnerable. These children we see online, did they give their parents consent to be featured online for “Instagram fame?” – no, (more than likely) their parents chose for them without a choice. Now, their whole life is out there for the world to see – anyone can save these moments with a screenshot. Their future classmates/classmates parents, teachers, employers etc., will know about their life, more often than not without their consent. I’m not saying I am going to be a “better parent” because I would never post about my children because perfect parents don’t exist – I am simply saying that this is an invasion of privacy towards children. Maybe if they’re older and they give you their consent to post it, then sure. But when they’re young and don’t know what is going on, it’s your job to protect them…. posting videos of them in the shower isn’t cute (even if you cover up their private parts with a sticker/gif/emoji… posting a photo of them covered in food while eating out isn’t cute…. posting a pic of them at the hospital when they’re sick isn’t right…. it’s an invasion of their privacy. But then again what do I know? I’m not even close to becoming a parent. (I got waaaaayyyyy off topic there lol)
WHY DO YOU KEEP COMMENTING ON AMERICAN POLITICS? UR NOT EVEN AMERICAN. YOUR OBVS A LIBERAL.
Sweetie, yes I know I’m a Canadian – I’m a PROUD CANADIAN. I can comment on American politics because (1) I have the right to do so…. It’s a free country (2) because if America gets (f*cks up) into trouble because YOUR President is all talk, Canadians are unfortunately going to get involved. Yes, you have the right to be Conservative and vote for whoever you want, I will not deny you your right to support whoever you choose to support, I will even defend your right to free speech and see the human in you. Just because we do not see eye to eye on things, it does not make either of us “better” or “right” compared to the other. Yes, I am Canadian, I am also a Canadian Conservative, not a Liberal. Just because I am Conservative does not mean I support everything they do or voted for them in recent elections – I vote on who I think will lead Canada to the best of their ability and do good for Canada as a whole.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT TORONTO?
Oh, this is such a hard question! I love the people. I love the food. I love the lifestyle and atmosphere. I grew up 45 minutes south of Toronto in the suburbs and it was quiet. Downtown Toronto is so interesting because there’s always something happening! There’s always people walking around. I love the culture, the people, the beautiful views, the food, the Blue Jays and Raptors.
IF YOU’RE CREATING A BRAND AND STARTING A BUSINESS WHY DO YOU BLOCK PEOPLE ESPECIALLY HOCKEY FANS WHO VIEW YOUR STUFF? YOU BLOCKED ON ME 2 ACCOUNTS
I only block people who I feel are either a troll and spam account that create accounts to stalk people or bully people, or you’re nosey, or you are a fan girl, or you have harassed me online. I do not owe anyone an explanation or an apology as to why I block them. I am not a public figure that has my life out there, I am a private citizen with a blog and a business. I do not deserve to be stalked, harassed and bullied by people who I do not know and will never meet. My personal life is no one’s business. If you cannot respect someone’s privacy and go out of your way to dig up info on someone, that’s a you problem and not mine. Have a great day!
HOW BIG ARE NINETYFOUR87 BAGS GOING TO BE?
I know when dealing with business stuff, I should be relatable yet professional, but I’m not gonna lie I designed every bag to be big enough to hold a water bottle and snacks 😜 Seriously, I’m not joking. Every bag design will be able to hold a water bottle, snacks, have security pockets to hold your valuables. That was something I wanted with all my bag designs – looked good, security for valuables and enough room for food! I know I should say something more professional and say “it’s functional” etc, but that is honestly how I envision the bags to be.
FAV ICE CREAM FLAVOR? DISLIKE?
Vanilla, Superkid (Laura Secord) and Cookies and Cream are my favourite! I absolutely hate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream 🤢 That’s just a big no for me.
THOUGHTS ON COLTON UNDERWOOD?
He seems like a good, sweet guy. I hope he finds someone who he can spend the rest of his life with!
I JUST SENT THE COLTON THING IN. WOULD YOU EVER GO ON THE BACHELOR?
LOL no because I am private and would never do anything that brings me attention like a reality show and I would not meet the requirements. 😜
IF YOU WERE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE WHAT SPORT WOULD YOU PLAY?
Tennis or Soccer (I played goalie and defender)
WHEN IS THE LAUNCH PARTY GOING TO BE?
I don’t have an official date for the NINETYFOUR87 launch party. It would depend on the schedule that comes out next year (personal, work, game schedules and important loved ones schedules as I want them all to be there). It will more than likely be some time in late August or early September 2020! The official launch date for NINETYFOUR87 will be late September 2020.
I have been contacting venues and vendors in the past couple of weeks and a few of them got back to me last week and I’m just so excited! I’ve been obsessed with Pinterest lately and going through every detail! It’s like planning a wedding without a lifetime committment 😂🤣
WHAT KIND OF COMPUTER DO YOU HAVE?
I have a MacBook Pro and an iMac
Use your voice for kindness,
Your ears for compassion,
Your hands for charity,
Your mind for truth,
And your heart for love 💙
My go to 95% of the time: Pepperoni/Green Peppers/Bacon crumble. If I’m craving Chipotle, I get the taco pizza at Panago Pizza!
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?
Happy, healthy, at least 2 businesses launched, finished my PhD (or almost finished) and working in the brain disease-Alzheimer’s-concussion (sports) field, have built our dream home. I would be 34, so hopefully I’m married by then and maybe 1-2 kids by 34?
CAN I COME TO YOUR LAUNCH PARTY?
Hi, there! There will be a limited amount of tickets available for the public. I will share more details once I have all the information! Individuals who were able to secure a ticket must be in the Toronto area. More to come!
WRITE ABOUT WORK STUFF! IT’S SO INTERESTING!
I can only write about certain things, but I will do my best!
DO YOU BELIEVE IN PSYCHICS?
While it is against my religion (I’m sorry) I have gone to psychics before. I don’t know if they talk to each other, but it’s kinda creep how most/all of them say the same thing every time I go….
DO YOU SEE YOURSELF GETTING MARRIED AND HAVING KIDS ANYTIME SOON?
Personally no. I’m just not ready, mentally, emotionally and physically for that kind of commitment. Marriage and kids is something I’m not interested. I’m 24, I’m still young.
FAVE ROM COM?
How to be single! My best friend and I watched it together and we loved it! I preordered a copy of the DVD version when I got home later that day!
Tesla and Jeep
BIG OR SMALL WEDDING?
Personally, if I could have it my way, I would elope and not tell anyone about it. But realistically, I know that’s never going to happen and I come from a large family, so more than likely a big outdoor wedding with a view and obviously a Catholic Church wedding so my Mom doesn’t kill me lol
I’M MOVING SOON AND I NEED DECOR INSPO! CAN YOU DO A CONDO TOUR?
I don’t feel comfortable sharing pictures of my home, but I will be more than glad to share where I got my stuff from! Thank you for understanding!
FAVORITE PLAYER ON THE TEAM? NOT INCLUDING GIBBY
I love them all 💙😂
WHEN IS YOUR TORONTO GUIDE GOING UP?
Soon!!!! I’m SOOOO sorry it’s taking so long!
CHRISSY HELP ME PLAN MY HONEYMOON! WHERE SHOULD WE GO?
I’ll call you later! I personally would go to Australia-New Zealand-Fiji!!!! 😝 (Can I hide in your luggage? 😝)
Adriana Lima and Selena Gomez
DO YOU HAVE 2 SNAPCHAT ACCOUNTS?
Yes, I do. I have a personal one and a blog one. My blog one is @lifesheloved.
NOT A QUESTION BUT I WATCHED CRAZY RICH ASIANS AFTER YOUR TWEET! IT’S SO GOOD!
RIGHT!?!? I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!
YOU PROBABLY ANSWERED THIS BEFORE BUT WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
Spanish-Filipino-Chinese-Hawaiian (not 100% sure on that one though)
I TRIED YOUR TIPS ON PERIOD CRAMPS AND THEY HELPED ME SO MUCH!
Aw yay! Glad it helped!!!! 😘
PLUS SIZE CLOTHING?
I’m sorry, I don’t have any experience buying plus sized clothing! I suggest googling plus sized brands and check the reviews of each brand and item, go on Pinterest and Instagram and follow fashion bloggers who specialize and have a better understanding of pluz sized clothing for inspo! 😘
*The professionals helping me with ninetyfour87 plus sized designs have experience working with plus size clothing. They will make sure measurements are correct and not too baggy*
WOULD YOU EVER MOVE TO EUROPE?
Maybe for like 3 months to explore and work on a project and research, but no I don’t see myself moving there for good. I’ll forever and always be a Canadian gal.
WOULD YOU EVER MOVE TO THE STATES?
I actually got a job offer in the States, but I don’t think I could leave my family, friends and loved ones here in Toronto, so I said no.
WINDOW OR AISLE?
I definitely recommend doing a solo trip at least once in your life! I went to New York and Washington DC for my first solo trip and it was amazing! No rushing, no “where do you wanna eat?” or “where do you wanna go?” You were on your own schedule and I loved it! It was so peaceful and I enjoyed mostly everything about it! The only thing I didn’t enjoy was no one was there to take a photo (someone stole this girl’s camera and ran and I was like yeah no let me take an awkward selfie. I got to see everything on my bucket list and I got to enjoy me time. I wanted to do another solo trip to Europe, but apparently “I’m not qualified enough” because I “don’t know how to walk by myself” 🤬🙄
BESIDES TORONTO, WHAT IS YOUR FAVE PLACE IN CANADA?
I love Lake Louise! If I could, I would build my future house near there!!!! I just love the water and mountains! Imagine waking up to that view everyday! Swoooooooooooonnnn!!
CHRISTINA KETCHUP ALL OVER FRIES OR IN A CORNER?
Corner. If I want to piss someone (you) off, all over 😇
DOES PINEAPPLE BELONG ON PIZZA OR DOES PIZZA BELONG ON PINEAPPLES?
I’m pretty sure we had an argument over this already, so you know my answer.
YOU’RE SO CUTE 😍
The genie finally granted me my final wish. LOL just kidding
DO YOU WATCH GREY’S? WHO’S YOUR FAVE? LEAST FAVE? WHO DO YOU SHIP?
I love Meredith, she will forever and always be my favourite. Not a fan of Maggie or Amelia. I didn’t know what ship was until I googled it (I’m old), but I loved Meredith and Derek!!!!
I KNOW YOU HATE WHEN PEOPLE COMPARE/HATE ON EACH OTHER BUT WHO’S STYLE DO YOU LIKE MORE KATE OR MEGHAN?
Both of their style fits and compliments them and their personality. Personally, I love the Duchess of Cambridge’s outfits more as I could see myself wearing almost all of them. I have seen most of the Duchess of Sussex’s outfits and while it is her style and looks great on her, I’m just not a fan of suits and cape dress for myself. She looks great in them though!
Also, I just want to point out that when I go on those fashion accounts on Instagram, I hate when people say “you’re a hater,” “you’re a racist” or something similar if one does not like either Catherine or Meghan’s outfit. You have the right to an opinion, you are allowed to say you do not like their outfit, but there is a big difference between making fun of them or criticizing their appearance (example: “too skinny” or “they have an eating disorder” etc., and not liking the outfit). We all have different styles and that’s great! That’s what makes everyone unique! Not liking something does not mean you are a hater!
HAVE YOU WATCHED TO ALL THE BOYS I LOVED BEFORE?
NOAH CENTINEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙋🏻♀️ Lol yes, I have, it’s really good!!!!
WHAT’S YOUR PINTEREST?
Here you go! I apologize, I’m a bit obsessed and pretend I’m Martha Stewart, Mindy Weiss and Becki Owens planning my future 🙈
JIMMY OR ERIC CHRISTINA JIMMY OR ERIC!? LOVE YOU, COURT
I FEEL LIKE YOU’D BE SO MUCH FUN TO HANG OUT WITH!
Lol my friend just read this question and told me to say “oh she’s a ball of fun” 🤣🤪
THOUGHTS ON THE KAWHI TRADE?
LOVE IT!!!! But still mad Vince Carter is not retiring as a Raptor!!!! Come on Masai!!!!
THOUGHTS ON THE JD TRADE?
I hope he does well wherever he goes and stays healthy! I wish him nothing but success and happiness!!!!
VINCE CARTER SUCKS JKJK ILY!
