Figure skater Ashley Wagner made a splash at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, taking home a bronze medal while also making her fair share of memorable facial expressions throughout the games.

And now that the Olympics are officially over, the bold 22-year-old athlete, who stayed at the P&G Home in Sochi, can give her figure skates a tiny break as she relaxes into a more normal routine of everyday life.

Wondering what Wagner is like off the ice? We've got the scoop!

Here's what she shared with us:

Describe your fashion style when you're not competing.
I have way too much black in my closet. I really love something nice, simple and put together, but it has to be comfy.  My ultimate go-to look is probably nice leather leggings and a white tee with black booties.

Do you have a lucky item or accessory you always wear?
I have two rings that I always wear. One was given to me from a really close friend of mine. It's a nice reminder that no matter what, beyond the rink, there is someone out there who loves you and cares about you. Even if you have a bad skate it's not going to change how people feel about you.

If you had to only pack five things, what would they be?
Never underestimate the power of fuzzy, comfy socks.  I absolutely can't live without my Covergirl Bombshell mascara.That is my number one makeup item. A nice pair of jeans and an easy tee. And lastly, a fun pair of sunglasses.

How much lip balm do you go through during a competition season?
I am addicted to lip balm. I go through so much!  I always have some in my bag and in my purse. It's everywhere!

If there was a movie about Ashley Wagner, who would you want to play you?
I would love to have Rachel McAdams play me. I have been told that we look somewhat similar. I don't think so at all, but I take that as a compliment. I think she and I have pretty similar personalities. She seems very light hearted, fun and sweet and I would like to think that is what I am like.

If you had a 15-minute break, what do you do?
I'd go to a corner somewhere and pick up the latest book I am reading.

What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is Vampire Diaries. I hate that I love it so much!

What is your warm-up jam of the moment?
I can't remember who it is by, but it's a really fun, upbeat song!

What did you miss the most while in Sochi?
I really missed my car, my Subaru. In Sochi, we just walked everywhere. I just wanted to jump in my car!

Did you forget to pack anything while at Sochi?
I forgot to pack toothpaste. It's always the first thing you should pack. Luckily, when I got there we had a welcome package from P&G that was loaded with everything, including toothpaste!

Did you buy a souvenir for yourself?
I brought home a bronze medal so that is my souvenir from Sochi.

What has been the most memorable moment aside from competing in your own event?
I didn't get to go to the Opening Ceremony, but all of us ran out onto the porch of the USA building and watched the torch light up. Seeing that made the Olympics real. It hit me I was competing in the Olympics the second I saw the torch light up.
