Kara is a model and entrepreneur, who just a few short years ago chose to uproot her life to pursue her dreams. She moved to Toronto five years ago to build her career in business and fashion. Kara’s endeavors include her charity” The Karebear Community ” and her two clothing lines, Kara Louise Collection and Lusso Bamboo. She also founded a lash line, Duchess Luxury Lashes, which is now sold in 13 stores across Canada. And just this year, Kara was crowned Miss Globe, winning the coveted title in Beijing back in January.
When Kara’s not working on her ventures or strutting down the catwalk she spends her time her reading, working out or volunteering. With philanthropy as a priority, Kara uses her global platform alongside as well as her charity to raise funds and awareness for other charitable groups. This past year Kara’s group has raised $12,700 for local groups in Canada and she only hopes each year to be able to make a bigger impact worldwide.
Crushworthy? We think so!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
One of the first things I notice about a potential love interest is the way they make me feel. If someone is making me want to go out of my way for them then that is when I can tell if I’m really into someone.
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
One of the best pieces of romance advice I have ever received was “love the way you want to be loved”. I always remind myself that it’s my job to be the best possible version of myself and partner because I know that’s what I deserve and wish for as well.
What’s the strangest thing someone has done to get your attention?
The strangest thing a guy has done to get my attention would be pretending that their mother had died.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
I feel that it’s really important to get to know yourself. Get to know what you like, what makes you happy and what kind of love and affection you need, to be at the ultimate level of happiness. I think there are many people out there for all of us, but liking someone or having a few good dates doesn’t cut it for me. I feel like we should look for someone who brings out the best side of you.
How do you keep the romance alive in a relationship?
I can’t say the romance ever dies as I am very attentive to whomever I am dating, but I do think it is important to continuously learn together and get to know your partner on all levels no matter how long you’ve been dating. I also feel that having an intense physical connection is very important because that is something that you share with each other.
