3. I am deathly afraid of ladybugs.
They freak me out. It's a long story.

In five years, I see myself running our family shop and running my own little business on the side. I love food. I don't ever want to stop sharing that with the world...

My idea of the perfect outfit is skinny jeans, a white tee, and a rockin pair of heels.
Nothing else matters.
