Not-so-Guilty Pleasures

When asked what her guilty pleasure is, Beth writes, "I can't say I feel truly guilty about this particular pleasure, but I probably should: spending upwards of an hour in a scorching bath full of rose-infused almond oil (a true nightmare when it comes time to clean the tub) while 'reading' the latest Vogue, drinking wine, and listening to podcasts about celebrities."

Catwoman

Beth has two black cats that she believes to be sisters that she is "pretty sure were born on Halloween at 11:11. They are bewitchingly adorable, and despite their antics (climbing curtains, eating plants, hiding fake mice, wine corks, and bits of string in my shoes) I am very taken with them".

Breaking Boundaries

In regards to how Beth would like to see Winnipeg evolve, she would love for it to become "a city with less boundaries (opening Portage and Main would be a great start...). There are divisions across this city rooted in class, race, and physical ability that could be mediated in part by creating free, accessible public spaces and affordable housing. Also more bike lanes."
