Hi guys! I’m so excited to be starting this blog and I thought it would be fun to share some random facts about myself so y’all could get to know me better! Leave a few random facts about yourself in the comments!
1.) I’m Ukrainian, both of my parents are from Ukraine and grew up there, but I was born in the U.S.
2.) My legal name is Alexandra, Sasha is short for Alexandra in Ukrainian so that’s why I go by Sasha, and Nicole is my middle name.
3.) I despise scary movies, you couldn’t pay me $1000 to watch one.
4.) I’m an identical twin, (bonus fun fact!) when I was younger I hated being a twin but over the last year we’ve grown super close, and she’s now my best friend.
5.) When I was younger and my family would go on flights, Christy (my twin) and I would say “up, up, up…” during takeoff. We’d start off by whispering and slowly work our way up to shrieking. Let me just tell you, we really loved takeoff!
6.) I love peanut butter, so much that I will eat it by the spoonful!
7.) I love mocktails so much (specifically mojitos) that whenever my family goes on vacation after a couple of days, the bartenders know my order.
8.) When I’m stressed, I bake. There’s just something relaxing about creaming butter and rolling out cookie dough!
9.) I love raw vegan desserts, I’m not vegan but they’re so good! If you’ve never tried one you need to asap!
10.) I hate roses, I don’t know why, but I just do.
12.) I once almost set our house on fire, because I put wood in the oven when I was making beads for my summer camp. I was watching Food Network when I realized something smelled funny, I turned around to see a cloud of smoke in our kitchen.
13.) I can speak Russian and French.
14.) I live in workout clothes! My favorite clothing store is lulu lemon!
15.) My favorite trip I’ve ever taken was last summer to Iceland, Oslo, and Frankfurt. Iceland is so beautiful, and surrounded with waterfalls, volcanic rock, grassy fields and winding roads. It’s a must see!
16.) I LOVE Mexican food, and if I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life it would definitely be a burrito!
17.) My favorite TV. shows are Giada in Italy, Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, and Greys Anatomy.
18.) After high school, I want to study nutrition at NYU, and go to culinary school.
19.) I love the smell of hotel linens (Trust me it’s not as weird as you think).
20.) When I was little I would wake up at 7:00am every Saturday morning and watch Giada at home. This was before I knew that the recipes to everything she makes are on Food Network’s website, so I would pull out a sheet of paper and a pencil and jot down everything she said.
21.) I can’t sleep unless it’s pitch black and my door is shut.
22.) I love Gigi Hadid, and want to see her walk in New York Fashion Week someday.
