50 Questions with @iamlisaclark’s Lisa Clark

So here’s a fun fact: @iamlisaclark’s Lisa Clark is funny. Not the funny that tells Dad jokes as you sit around awkwardly smirking. The type of funny that when she drops her sassy one liners, all you think is “Damn girl’s good”.

[And yes, we’re still thinking we’d def be friends IRL.]

But funnies and friendship aside, we thought it was high time we hit Lisa up for one of our Fast 50 questionnaires. So here goes. Below, we chat to the quintessential Aussie beach gal about everything from obsessions with tornadoes [true story] to staying humble to why we suspect she’s avoiding someone called Casey…
