Interview with Courtney Newell from @alwayscoconoelle
Hey Babes! I am beyond excited to kick off my video segments with an amazing interview with one of my best babes Courtney from @alwayscoconoelle. She is one of the most encouraging, kind, stylish and empowering women I have had the pleasure of knowing so I hope you enjoy this interview and learn some fun things about this gorgeous lady!
**Disclaimer...this being my first hand at a video interview I learned a couple things the hard way...like anything over 15 min basically wont upload hahah sooo after late night editing I got it down to just under 15 min but please just look at the lil blips in speech as me learning publically that I talk to much and will know better for next time haha had to take out some great little cat clips too...oh well, next time**
If you don't have time to watch the whole video I summarized the interview for you below! But I promise the video is more fun hehe
Question: What is your blog?
Answer: Always Coco Noelle, focused on a minimal style, working the basic and playing with what's in your closet. Also working on Coco's Collections which will be a few fun pieces for my audience to add to their wardrobe.
Question: Do you feel like that was always your style or did it evolve as you started the blog?
Answer: Pretty true to who I am. At first struggled with focusing on what others were doing but really my style is to take a couple of simple pieces and do something special with it. I think we make fashion so much harder than it needs to be but I keep it simple!
Question: What does your ideal or typical day look like?
Answer: I try to incorporate a couple things into my day which is a workout, healthy meals and blocking off my time as I try to get things done. This helps give me structure so I can get more done. I also work part-time to keep a steady income since I am still in my first year of starting my business.
Question: What is your favorite type of workout?
Answer: I have two answers for that! One that makes me sweat is cycling and it feels more natural for me. And I love walking, I try to go for at least 30 min a day.
Question: Favorite meal or recipe?
Answer: I love making a healthy at home chipotle bowl. Simple and delicious. I do this for lunch most days of the week.
Question: Favorite cheat meal?
Answer: A real bowl from Chipotle or Taco Bell!
Question: Favorite quote?
Answer: Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. -Coco Chanel
Question: Favorite book?
Answer: The Compound Effect By: Darren Hardy
Question: What does living a Kalon Life mean to you?
Answer: Doing what works for you, and really being yourself and what you need to do for yourself. Finding your beauty and being comfortable with that.
Question: Any advice for someone out there starting a business or who has a dream?
Answer: Never give up. I know we hear that all the time but you will have so many ups and downs but ultimately your trajectory is going up. So don't give up, learn to hear no and enjoy the rollercoaster ride. Have a good mindset, be positive and surround yourself with good people. You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with so make sure it is people who bring you up.
