I’m the girl with the passion for traveling, meeting new people and trying new things. I don’t do small talk, or unnecessary questions; and if my face doesn’t say it, my mouth definitely will. Cute things get me through the day - I’ll go the extra mile for a puppy or any fluffy animal. If I tag you in an Insta post, you know I approve of you.
