When and why did you start your YouTube channel?
I started my YouTube channel to challenge myself. I’ve always enjoyed socializing and giving advice, whether it is for make-up, fashion or about life in general. I think YouTube is an awesome platform for communicating with people and gathering them around a common subject. For me, it’s important to give off a positive vibe and to demonstrate that despite what we might see on social media, no one has the perfect life and it’s important to face adversity with a smile.
Describe your morning routine.
For the longest time, I tried to keep myself from checking my cell phone first thing upon waking up, but it’s IMPOSSIBLE! I love checking social media and replying to my emails, and watching YouTube videos every now and then. Then, I go straight to the bathroom, since my skincare routine allows me to relax and think about what I want to do with my day (it’s a small luxury!). I’m always hungry, so I don’t need to tell you that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. After eating, I get ready and then I’m off on another adventure! (Or I go back to bed and watch Netflix…)
We love the fact that you come from Montréal, just like us! If a friend from out of town came to visit you, where would you take them first?
That’s a very good question, as I’ve always lived in Montréal and I still have the feeling that I haven’t seen everything there is to see here. However, one of my favourite places will always be the Old Port of Montréal. The atmosphere is always calm, despite the many activities happening at Place Jacques-Cartier during the summer, and the architecture is just breathtaking.
What was the highlight of the two days you spent with the Garage team?
My experience with Garage was fabulous! Since it was one of my first photo shoots, I admit that it was a little difficult to get some sleep the night before, haha! If I had to pick just one highlight, it would be the day that we went to La Ronde. The ambiance was very lively and people would stop to look at us from time to time. I must mention the awesome Garage team, as everyone made us feel comfortable in front of the cameras, which took some of the pressure off.
What do you think of the new jeans collections that you had the chance to discover and wear before anyone else?
The new Garage jeans collection is perfect. Yes, it’s perfect. I’ve always been someone who had trouble finding jeans that fit me like a glove. I’m thin, but I have very long legs, which means that jeans are often too short on me. However, all the jeans that I got to wear during my experience were so comfy, and I could even roll them up!
To help launch our exciting campaign Jeans You Love, we invited four of our fave YouTubers to Montréal, Québec, for a super fun two-day photo shoot. We took them to the iconic La Ronde amusement park and Parc Jean-Drapeau, located right in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River, had an impromptu meetup with a bunch of fans at our flagship store on Sainte-Catherine, ate poutine, rode bikes, and had so many laughs!
