25 Random Facts About Me

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.

23.) I am a perfectionist.

24.) My favorite book is We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.

25.) I love Christmas, and my favorite Christmas movie is Arthur Christmas!


I hope you enjoyed reading some random facts about me! Do you have any unique random facts about yourself? Leave them in the comments below!!



  • Found the cutest black sweater and it's on sale! This morning I went to Church with a good friend and got brunch afterwards! I'm about to go take some blog photos and then hopefully do some meal prep for the week! I love meal prepping because it helps me have quick options to snack on and makes me more likely to eat in rather than be tempted to go out. Especially during Whole30 meal prep has been a life saver! What do you do on Sunday's to make your week easier? (Ps: remember you can now shop my Instagram on the blog!)
  • The cutest sweatshirt dress under $35!! Y'all today I finally finished (well almost) the new blog! After being tired of the way my blog looked I decided to give it a makeover! Now you can shop my Instagram including this dress! So go take a look, and tell me what y'all think!
  • Hands up for snow days!! Yesterday we got almost a foot of snow which is incredibly unusual for Raleigh! I've been curled up on the couch by our fireplace, watching Hulu and working on the blog! I need a good show to binge on Netflix or Hulu, what's your favorite? (Also the blog may or may not be getting a major facelift!)
  • I feel like I haven't gotten to introduce myself, I'm Sasha! I love Jesus and sharing the gospel. I really want to like reading but I don't unless I'm at the beach with a mojito, or reading my bible with a highlighter and pen. I love breakfast, and poached eggs are my go to at brunch! But my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I probably change my order about five times because I'm so indecisive. I'm a perfectionist at heart, I try to do everything and I mean everything (high school, jewelry business, blog, youth group three times a week, and a job) until I'm exhausted. I love learning unless it's physics, then I'm just confused. But I love math and solving problems. I am constantly trying to prove myself to myself, and make it a game to see how much I can accomplish in a day. I am a creature of habit, I go to the same coffee shop at least three times a week and I've made friends with all the baristas lol. I'm an introverted extrovert and love talking (a lot)! I love traveling and dream of moving somewhere like London or New York. Oh and I'm a twin (it's so much fun)! Ps: this outfit is all linked in today's blog post, so go give it a read!
  • Finally got a pair of leopard loafers and I'm obsessed! They're so comfy and look amazing! Tomorrow we're supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow, it may not sound like much, but for NC that means school will be canceled for a few days! Super excited to curl up on the couch, watch KUWTK and drink some hot chocolate!😆 What are your favorite things to do on snow days?
  • Yesterday I did the first part of my driving for drivers ed, luckily he only had to use his brakes a couple of times🙈 Not sure how I feel about driving yet but I have another class later today. Do you guys like driving, or would you rather have your friend drive?
  • Happy Friday Eve! I'm so excited about the long weekend ahead! This week was my first full week back at school and it's been pretty hard adjusting back from having so much free time. But I'm also kinda loving it because I'm sort of in my element when I have a bunch of stuff to do, all about the #hustle lol! I wanted to share a few thoughts on our identity. So last week I applied to a style company for a space in their influencer community. And today I saw an email in my inbox and my stomach dropped to the floor. I had a hunch when I applied that I didn't have a very high chance to get in, but thought what's the worst thing that can happen, they say no and I move on and try again later down the road. But for some reason all afternoon there's been a weight on my chest and a voice in my head saying I'm not good enough! And holy moly, that's so far from the truth. You see our identity is in Jesus, who says we are enough! And at times it can be hard to remember when things you had such high hopes for fall through. I keep reminding myself of Genesis 1:27 and Isaiah 25:1. It's so easy to lose sight of what God has planned for your life by little moments that take away your attention from the big picture. Whatever challenge, rejection, or pain you're facing, Jesus is so much bigger than it and so is his plan for you! (Ps: this sweater is on major sale, linked on the blog)
  • Currently dreaming of being somewhere warm. I feel like once January roles around I'm done with winter and ready for spring dresses and cute sandals (anyone else?) But until then this fur vest is great to stay cozy in the winter weather! My favorite way to style it is, with a pair of jeans, riding boots, a white sweater and gold hoops!
  • I think I'm pretty late on the otk boot trend, but since I've got these I've been wearing them everywhere! These were the only shoes I wore on my trip to Paris and they were surprisingly comfortable for walking around Paris all day. I'm currently lusting over the Stuart Weitzman pair, but if you're not wanting to splurge these are the perfect option!
