Hi Farrah, thank you for taking the time to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
No problem, thank you for giving me the opportunity! Well, I’m from Vancouver, Canada and I am currently a full-time university student. I love all things beauty and fashion and fluffy dogs. Also love the non-fluffy ones. I make videos for my YouTube beauty channel during my spare time and love to sing, dance, hike, and spend time with family and friends!
How do you keep yourself updated with the latest beauty and lifestyle trends?
I keep updated by watching my favourite YouTubers talk about their current favourites and I regularly enjoy reading magazines like Cosmopolitan and Elle.
What is your beauty regime like?
It really depends on the day, what I’ll be doing, and what my my mood is like. Some days I love a full face with 1000 different eye-shadow shades blended together and chiseled cheeks, and other days I enjoy nothing but concealer, filled brows, and mascara. But every day always starts with a freshly cleansed face, moisturized skin, and defined eyebrows. I’ve also been into glowing skin lately, so highlighter is a must!
Where can we catch you partying or chilling out on weekends?
When I do have some spare time (on the weekends I’m usually working) I LOVE going to Granville Island in Vancouver. It’s one of my favourite places especially during the spring and summer. I love being outdoors and staying active, but you can also catch me on the weekends snuggled up in bed watching Scandal or a good documentary. I love listening to hip-hop and R&B music so I tend to gravitate towards places that play those genres! You can find me on Sundays anywhere with a special on caesars. I also like to get lit with some extra buttered popcorn at the movie theatre.
Are you more of a morning person or night owl?
I’m definitely more of a night owl. I’d love to pretend that I’m a morning person and sound super productive, but really I get a lot more work done at night, which is interesting considering I get sleepy at around 11 pm.
Best compliment you have ever received?
The best compliment I’ve ever received would have to be from this little boy I was volunteering to read with. We were reading a book about butterflies and he pointed to the butterfly and said “Farrah!” While I don’t know if he necessarily meant it as a compliment, it was a beautiful butterfly and they signify all kinds of beauty, freedom, and transformation which I think are amazing things.
What turns you off?
Smelliness! Please put on some deodorant! Ignorance.. Not everyone knows the same things you know, believes the same things you believe, or has the things you have. I also get turned off by a lack of manners. It’s amazing how far a simple please and thank you can go. Raw onions also turn me off. I always pick them out of a salad.
Most embarrassing thing that has happened to you that seems funny now?
I always somehow seem to put myself into really embarrassing situations or have embarrassing things happen to me. I think it’s just a part of who I am now. When my best friend and I were 18, we called and emailed what seemed like virtually every single bar, pub, or nightclub in Vancouver asking them if they allowed 18 year olds inside their venue (lol). Obviously everyone said no, until this one restaurant said they did allow people under 19 (the British Columbia drinking age) in as long as they didn’t sit at the bar. We thought we could try and get some drinks there. So we go there, and just stood in front of the door for about 5 minutes gathering the courage to go inside and the hostess was like “Um are you coming in…?” and we nervously rushed inside. We sat at a table adjacent to the bar and the first thing the server asked us was to see our IDs.. We were so embarrassed that we left. It’s funny now because we are pretty much grandmas who would rather go eat some honey garlic wings than drink.
It’s a pleasure to feature you Farrah. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
It’s been my pleasure answering these great questions! Thanks for featuring me. Sexy to me is being happy in your own skin and not being afraid to laugh at yourself. As simple and cliche as that may sound, it’s hard to get to a place where you’re completely happy and confident with who you are. Some days I feel like Beyonce and some days I feel about as sexy as a sack of potatoes. Sexy to me is also having a sense of humour, rocking a cute outfit whether you’re a size 0 or a size 20, being humble, being open to new experiences, and having the ability to be compassionate and sympathize with others.
I upload new beauty, fashion, and lifestyle videos every week. I am spending a lot of time on this channel as of late so I’m excited to film new and fun content!
I also am in the process of creating a beauty and lifestyle blog/personal website that will be up and running in the next few weeks, which I will be sharing on my social media as well as my YouTube channel.
