    • The baked goat cheese and Nico pappardelle with veal at Grazie Ristorante
    • The pork tenderloin with caramelized onions, sweet peas, and potatoes at Five Doors North

  2. What was your highlight in relationships for 2016? No romantic relationships for me this year, but I made some wonderful friendships with some of my colleagues, and have created stronger bonds with old friends.

  3. What was your highlight in entertainment for 2016? I went to some truly amazing concerts this year, including Lindsey Stirling at the Sony Centre, Deftones at International Centre, and Metric at Air Canada Centre (where I actually got to meet them and go on stage with a bunch of other VIPs to sing "Dreams So Real" with them!).

  4. What was your highlight in self-improvement for 2016? I like to think I've learned how to be a more effective leader, a more creative makeup artist, and a more respected manager this year.

  5. What was your highlight in completing something for 2016? Well, I worked hard to get promoted this year, and ended up getting promoted twice, so I like to think that I completed my major career-related goals this year.
