Questions | By Gold Couture
- What beauty product you cannot live without?
coco : Vaseline! I literally can not function without lubricating my lips! I put on Vaseline before I go to sleep and probably foundation but I always make sure there's 3 days of the week I don't wear any.
- What is your nationality/ethnicity?
chez, : British Black African
coco : Zimbabwean and British but not a mixture of the two lol
- What is your [inspiring] profession?
chez, : If life lets me Civil servant x Artist x Stylist x anything else my talents enable me to do.
coco : counsellor or a stylist or a fashion mag editor of some sort. I'll be content with either.
- Reason behind the name of your blog?
chez, : Lol Ask Coco, probably nonsensical rumblings between us perhaps we are the epitome of Ultimate. What ever shoe fits.
coco : Lol to be honest it's however you want to interpret it. Ohhlala connotes beauty,style admiration. The lot. And ultimate means well ultimate .. Incomparable? Greatest? Whatever floats your boat.
- How would you explain your fashion sense?
chez, : Sporadic. My fashion sense reflects the way I think/function. I'm very impulsive and emotive. Bad combo
coco : cherish says Girly I say lady like. There is a difference lol
- What is your Zodiac sign?
chez, : Gemini
coco : Leo
- Why did you start blogging?
chez, : I've almost always had a blog since I had twitter, this was in 2009 when blogging was becoming the source of so many people's success. I blog because I feel there are so many opportunities that go to waste when I'm not blogging. Its just another door I suppose. It also aids with my writing, I enjoy writing. Its openly personal.
coco : I have a passion for fashion that doesn't go unnoticed. So almost everyone I know was encouraging me to start a blog, Instead of constantly bombarding these poor souls on Instagram and twitter. I owe it to cherish to be honest. She's the one that created the blog, the layout etc and coerced me to just get with it lol
- What is your favorite quote?
chez, : Not so much a quote, my brain doesn't like remembering things, I treasure the moral of the quote (story) more, Richard Stengel | Mandela's Way : Life Lessons. His my hero and every page is a great source of inspiration and I guess quote worthy. This touches a nerve to be honest. I love him. Get well soon Mandela!
coco : there's so many but when it comes to fashion I guess it's 'fashion fades, style is eternal' by YSL. And another! 'Money comes and goes' it seems like a bad idea but I'm a shopaholic so I just tell my self that when I want something lol
- What do you believe is your best quality/feature?
chez, : Honestly? My love for knowledge.
coco : I've only discovered this but I realised I'm a passionate person. Teach me or show me something interesting and you'll see.
- What social media site do you frequent?
coco : Instagram
- What is your favorite spring/summer trend?
coco : I'm still loving the all white trend!
11 Truths |
chez, : I have a dry sense of humour. There are just a few people who just don't get me, or I don't get them
coco : I'm the worst liar. I can not lie to save my life! I don't know who implanted the idea that honesty is the best policy in me.
chez, : Cartoon obsessed. My television life revolves around children's cartoons adults cartoons or detective series'
coco : Just like Cherish I am cartoon obsessed! and children's TV. I'm nearly 21 and yet I can still down for a few hours watching cartoon network or Disney Channel!
chez, : I will be studying Politics, Philosophy and History at the beginning of fall.
coco : I am graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree next month!
chez, : I am the last born out of six.
coco : I have 3 older sisters. I am close to all of them but my oldest sister is pretty much my best friend. You wouldn't believe there is an 8 year age gap between us.
chez, : My taste in music changes with the seasons, alternating between the genre's I already favour. i.e soul, indie, rap, trap, electro, house (S.A) etc
coco : I am easily amused. Seriously. I find most things funny which makes me think my friends have a poor sense of humor lol
chez, : I love the word 'comma'. Its simple and reminds you to take a pause before (reading) carrying on along.
coco : I love to sleep! I cannot function if I don't get at least 8hours of sleep. Though in my final year of university I had to function with 5 hours sleep. My love for getting some sleep has gotten me in trouble numerous times. With my parents, my siblings and even my friends!
chez, : The things that truly inspire me about fashion are the construction (or deconstruction) of assembling the pieces. I love material, shape and form, space and contrast. Fashion is just a simplified version of architecture in my eyes, I enjoy the process of the idea, visualising and the experimenting that takes part before the end just as much or a little more than the final piece.
coco : As small as I am, I am an eating machine. I can eat for the world. Scared that it's going to catch up with me soon, as I get older.
chez, : I love food, I thoroughly enjoy baking and cooking. I love making cocktails too.
coco : I don't have many dresses in my wardrobe. That's because I love dressing up and fashion because I get to put ensembles together. Can't do much with a dress. Add some nice shoes and accessories that's it. Anyone can put on a dress and look nice. Not many people can put ensembles together. Respect to those that can.
chez, : I love design art. Interior design and Architecture being at the top.
coco : Because of the way I dress, people think I'm extremely girly. But I'm not! I'm not a tomboy or anything but I don't do my nails, I don't know much about hair and make up. I do not have much interest in that.
chez, : I want to travel. I need to travel.
coco : I don't own any trainers, or plimsolls, or vans, or converses... You get the idea. I have a LOT of shoes and i would say 90% of my shoes are heels! Which I hardly wear so I set my self a challenge. Wear heels every (other) day. I'm loving it lol
chez, : I hate dirt. I hate messy/cluttered/ crowed/ rooms or places. I enjoy space.
coco : I love shopping (well there's a surprise!). I love it ha. I do make sure to never get myself in debt because of it. Mama would kill me!
