Get To Know Me

Hello Loves,

With my life changing for the better in these next few weeks AAAAAAAAAAA!! I thought I would let you guys get to know me a little better. I reached out to the internet and social media to answer 15 of your questions.

So here we go!

What is your full name?

Filipa Jade Jackson

How old are you?

I am 26, 1989 baby!!!

How many siblings do you have?

I am 1 of 5. I am the oldest and only girl of 4 crazy, creative boisterous brothers.

Do you have an accent? Where are you from?

I might have an accent, but so don’t you?! Haha. I am originally from Leeds in the UK but moved to Canada when I was 14

What’s your ethnicity?

I am mixed, both my parents were born and raised in the UK. However I am from Jamaican and Scottish decent. Oh there is also some Chinese blood… crazy right?!

What’s your fav social media?

Instagram ALL THE WAY… oh and Snapchat! Darn haha!

Where do you prefer more? Canada or UK?

This is a really hard question to answer. I love Canada as it brought me my man and besties… however I will always be a Leeds lass. My heart is still in the UK.

Would you ever move to another country? If so, where?

Sameer and I always talk about moving haha. We are contemplating moving to the UK or LA, we will see.

What is the secret to a long term relationship?

Communication! Don’t hold anything back, you are best friends… act that way!

Where are you getting married?

I’m getting married at Azul Fives by Karisma, in the beautiful Playa Del Carmen, Mexico!!!!!

Where would you love to travel to?

Bali!! I am desperate to go to Bali.

What is something people might not know about you?

I suffer from anxiety. I have really bad panic attacks that are triggered by nerves… it’s something that I will be working on for the rest of my life. However I recently got a Himalayan salt inhaler and it’s most definitely helping!

What is your obsession?

I am utterly obsessed with my fluffy baby Coal, my 6 year old toy poodle.

What can’t you leave the house without?

Other than my underwear… my phone! I NEED MY IPHONE AT ALL TIMES!

What is on top of your bucket list?

Stand on the equator… I think that’s pretty frigging cool.

    You are so gorgeous. Love learning more about you! I have one sister, so four brothers is a little foreign to me.

    How fun was this!? I loved getting to know more about you, girl! I can see that Jamaican and Scottish mix for sure, such a beauty! My hubby and I have been together for 10 years, married for 7 and I couldn’t agree more, communication is KEY! I want to go to Bali, too, it’s SO gorgeous and so surreal! I never thought about standing on the equator….until NOW, haha! That would be so cool! As for your outfit, I love the addition of the bandana and those flats are everything, girl! Thanks so much for sharing, I really enjoyed this post! Have an awesome day, beautiful!

      Thank you Jalisa, I am so happy you enjoyed it. Your always so sweet. Oh wow you look too young to be married for 7 years, although I don’t know why but I feel like as soon as I get married I am going to age 20 years… I guess not, as you look fab haha

    Loved this post Filipa and loved getting to know a little more about you and where you are from. Leeds is a great city! Anxiety is the worst and I’m curious about the Himalayan salt inhaler as I had never heard of that before. I love your outfit always beautiful. Gemma x

    Loved reading this and getting to know you a bit better! I am from the UK too – the other side (Liverpool) – but living in France so not as big a move as you! However, I’m an only child so I cannot begin to imagine what having four brothers is like!! Love your denim on denim look – you always look amazing!

      Thank you Julia, yeah it can be a handful haha… but a fun one. I have always wanted to live in France however it must be difficult being a Brit there.

    Many thanks for your very interesting answers! To be the oldest sister of 4 brothers must be quite an experience 🙂 And I can imagine it was challeging to move with 14 from the UK to Canada … now I’m curious if you really will move and where you will go. Love your look btw, fantastic and very cool!

    I really had a nice time getting to know you! 🙂 I’m the only girl too in the family (aside from my mom ofc). I love to travel to Bali too but I think it’s quite expensive so I need to save more :))
