I love watching the Vogue “73 Questions” videos which offer viewers a tour of celebrity homes while learning a little more about them. Naturally, the Taylor Swift video is my favourite, but I also enjoyed the Nicole Kidman and Victoria Beckham versions. A few months ago, Jordyn created her own 73 questions on her blog and I knew I wanted to do the same. I took these questions from her version so be sure to go check it out!
