A C O Interview
Personal · A Niyonkinzo
- Why did you start a blog?
Starting a blog for me was a way to create a place where I set the rules and I could portray my own personal style and express my thoughts and inspirations, the way I wanted to.
- Where do you get inspiration from?
As a creative person, my surroundings and the people I meet plays a huge role in where I get my inspiration from. I get inspired by nature, experiences and interacting with new people, cultures and by travelling
- What describes your style?
My style is very diverse, I love colors and prints but my style also has a touch of Scandinavian minimalism. I don’t think my style can be put in a box, because I love to create my outfits by taking different items and pieces from different style worlds and pairing them together.
- Why the name ‘A Common Obsession’
Common Obession comes from the thing I blog about, which are common obessions for a lot of people, I don’t know a person who doesn’t want to look good, to eat good, to travel, to live a healthy well-balanced life, so that’s where common obsessions comes from. The A comes from my name Alix, so it’s Alix’ obsessions, but also common obsessions. Get it? 😉
- A tip on how to always look good when you leave your house?
That’s an easy one. You just have to think of your crush and every time you are about to step out the door, just imagine that you are going to bump into her at the central station, the mall or where ever, and ask yourself if that’s how you want to look if you bump into her? 😉 that’s how I keep myself motivated, although the chances of meeting Gigi Hadid in the streets of Copenhagen are very slim! Haha
- How much time do you spend on social media?
Probably too much, haha. I’m a big fan of social media, I think it’s the perfect tools to interact with my followers and fellow blogger’s and show another side of myself. Especially Instagram, I love how you can discover and be inspired by so many great people and of course the numerous memes accounts, that can make you laugh your a** off.
- Who do you think is the most stylish man in the world
That’s a tough one!! So many fashion icons out there, but one name that always comes to mind is Kanye West. I love his sense of style, he aspires to be different and is not afraid to own it and challenge himself and you got to admire his confidence. His affinity for avant-garde fashion mixed with prep-school, retro and hip-hop swagger makes him a fashion forward leader
- Describe the perfect date?
I don’t believe in the perfect date as something you can create, a perfect date in my opinion is all about the connection with the person you out with; when you go out with a girl who makes your heart skip a beat, gives you butterflies and makes you a little nervous because you don’t want to mess it up. Then when you’re on the date the personalities clique and the conversation never stops, that’s the ultimate perfect date.
