Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Veronika Slowikowska to share a taste of her taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Veronika Slowikowska is a New York/Toronto-based actress and comedian that you may know from her role on FX’s What We Do in The Shadows or more recently, her hilarious videos (@veronika_iscool) and IG Reels. Watching them reminds me of how I felt watching GoodNeighborStuff for the very first time, and that’s a very high compliment. My favorites are this one where she takes on the role of a neurotic girlfriend, her take on slam poetry, or this epic prank on her roommate. If you’re in NYC you can catch her hosting Improv But Good on November 20th at Union Hall. And if not, be sure to check out her podcast Nevermind where Veronika and Kyle Chase “laugh and talk and also have conversations” and her new movie Exmas is out today. Lucky for us, Veronika is here to tell us what she’s been into.

Hi I’m Canadian but I live in New York now and I still have my Canadian number and accounts and Venmo will literally not show up on my apps. So I really fuck with PayPal and if you don’t have it or that’s annoying mmm shut up please!!!!
My friend Connory and I became obsessed with this kid’s Soundcloud. True child prodigy hyper pop genius. Check out poison, findhelp, flowers.
This article. My therapist recommended it to me and says I haven’t processed maybe anything in my life and drown out my feelings by looking at my phone? Like k
🎾 Iga Swiatek
My parents are Polish immigrants who moved to Canada right before I was born so I gotta show my Polish pride. Iga is one of the greatest tennis players evaaaa and I love to watch tennis with my family whenever I’m in Poland or at home <3
🧘🏼♀️ Melissa Wood Health
My everything, found her online yoga/pilates classes in the pandemic and it seriously changed my life. I love to move my body but get overwhelmed at gyms and she’s all about taking a minute for yourself rather than losing weight or whatever and going sicko mode. Usually do a class a day and usually in my pjs tbh :$
✈️ Touching the outside of a plane before getting on it
Shoutout if you do that. I have to personally, or else the plane will crash in the ocean.
🥗 Mandy’s Salads
I’m on my basic bitch shit. This is a Canadian spot, I would go here at least once a week when I lived in Toronto ON Ossington (best street ever). I love a good quinoa bowl with protein and veggies and mmmm like a tahini dressing.
My podcast I run with my bestie Kyle Chase (@kylefornow) we shoot once a week and I love our chats and being silly.
