Name: Jojo Pearson

Occupation: Blogger and full time angel

Mission in Life: to keep surprising myself and everyone else with what I’m capable of

Where is home to you: Wherever there are cute animals

image (4)

How would you describe your style? I always find this question really difficult, but I think my style is the perfect balance between angelic and devilish. I love everything pastel, pretty and girly but I won’t wear it until it’s paired with dark makeup, bondage accessories and horns

Ultimate style icon? I’m one of those people who gets inspiration from anywhere. I see cool things online and on the streets and I tailor it to be more suited to myself.

Go to party outfit? As sparkly as I can get! Think sequins and glitter everywhere! I’ve also been know to dress as a cat to parties that didn’t even have a fancy dress theme…

together

That one thing that gets you in the Christmas mood? Spending every penny I have on Christmas presents! And also wrapping them. I really love wrapping presents because I try to make them mega pretty (and most of the time succeed).

Guilty pleasure Christmas food? I HAVE TO HAVE a cheese and pineapple hedgehog! My Mom makes one every year and it’s my favourite snack at Christmas. If you don’t know what one is, then you’re missing out. Tasty AND cute.

Ultimate Christmas movie? I’m going to be really unoriginal and say either the Grinch or Elf. Oh and The Nightmare before Christmas is good too, because you can watch it everyday between Halloween and Christmas (yes, I have done this before).

All I want for Christmas is…. YOUUUUUUUUUU and al of the animals in the world so I can cuddle them and be warm

IMGP1007

 

What do you do for a 9-5?

At the moment we have our hands full with three new born babies that keep us busy all day and awake all night – our website howtwolive.com , our shoe line TWOOBS and our book #HOWTWOLIVE

How did you get in to what you are doing?

We started our blog in 2012 when Stef moved to Paris for six months. At the time we were both working in fashion and the blog was more of a side project, but as HTL grew it turned into our dream job.

Perks of the Job?

There are defitnely lots but the best part is probably that we get to work on everything together. Even when we’re doing boring admin work we still find ways to make it fun because we’re always in it together.

How would you describe your style?

We don’t really stick to one particular style – it’s not as fun! Our wardrobe is a magical mix of everything from colours and prints, to vintage, to some awesome quirky pieces. Every morning we’ll head to our eclectic closet and throw on whatever we’re in the mood for.

Ultimate style icon?

Anna Dello Russo is our numero uno. We love the cool element she brings to whatever she wears – whether it’s an OTT Jeremy Scott outfit or a gold Versace sequin number, girlfriend knows how to rock it.

Favourite go-to outfit?

In summer you’ll usually find us in easy playsuits and platforms, and then in winter we have these amazing lamb wool jackets and throw over anything and everything.

Junk food weakness?

Oooooooo definitely Nutella donuts… or Nutella pancakes… or Nutella ice cream… or just about anything with Nutella on it really.

Rainy Day Movie?

Where is home to you? I grew up in Southern California, but right now I split my time between San Diego, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

What do you do for a 9-5? I’ve never had a 9-5 in my life! I’m not good with too much structure or routine… an luckily, I’ve always been really great at finding ways to make money through the creative things that I enjoy doing.

How did you get into what you’re doing? I taught myself how to DJ about 5 years ago, and I just worked really hard to master the skill, did a lot of networking, and within a year of beginning I was able to support myself through DJing full time. Making music, modelling, taking photos and blogging all just naturally fell into place afterwards because of the brands and the people I was meeting through being a DJ.

Perks of the job: I have the best job ever, I get to play music for a living, work with fund brands and take photos of babes all day.

 

1

How would you describe your style? I grew up in Southern California and I think my style reflects that. Very casual – jeans, vintage t shirts, Vans, Doc Martins and messy beach hair.

Ultimate style icon? I love Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie in the 90s

Favourite go-to outfit? High Waisted denim shorts, Vans and a comfy vintage T Shirt

 

3

Junk food weakness? Any type of sour candy of chocolate & peanut butter

Rainy Day Movie? Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Thelma & Louise, Coraline and anything with Tom Hardy in (ha ha).

Top 3 songs on your playlist right now? That’s a tough one for me, I’m constantly listening to so much new music across all different genres, so it is really difficult to narrow it down to just 3 songs! I always love the Weeknd and Drake’s new stuff of course! A bit random, but I have also been listening to a lot of country lately, I love Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert. I usually always listen to the Frank Sinatra channel on Sirius Radio late at night and on my way home from finishing a set.

Where would we find you on a typical Friday night? If I’m not DJing, then I’m probably at home cooking dinner and watching Netflix with a glass of wine, or I’m out to dinner with friends.

Mission in life: Cliche, but to be happy, keep doing what I love and to see the world

Where is home to you? North London

Perks of the job: Meeting new people, everyone has their own story. Working with the others, we’re all close and it’s always a lot of fun

How would you describe your style? Most of the time I probably look like an art teacher. I work odd hours and tend to meet my friends out afterwards. So you’ll usually see me wearing my Mom Jeans or Dungarees and covered in colour.

Favourite hair trends for summer? Summer to me = festivals and holidays, I can’t wait! Braids, plaits, buns, messy ponytails and beach wave

2
Favourite go to hair style? For me it;’s the just out of bed look, usually because I’ve just got out of bed. I like my hair messy and it dries kind wavy naturally. I’ll sometimes all in a few faves and use some Bleach Swamp Spritz to make it look more ‘done’
Worst haircut on file? Ahh man. As a moody teenager I cut all my hair off into a short weird crop. I definitely shaved some of it as well, it wasn’t great.
Who were some of your hair influences growing up? Gwen Stefani, any of the cast from the TV show Tribe and Daryl Hannah in Splash
Best piece of hair advice? Really standard, but always use heat protector. People forget about it BECAUSE it doesn’t seem to give you any instant results. You get tons of damage from heat styling over time and if you’re trying to grow your hair long, then it is key!
Junk Food Weakness? CRISPS. Loads of crisps. Especially the rubbish ones.
Rainy Day Movie? Romeo & Juliet if I’m feeling soppy, or anything by Wes Anderson. Love him.
Where would we find you on a typical Friday night? At the salon, we work late! Eating food round Central or East, I eat out way too much!

What do you think makes a good DJ? It’s best to know about as many music genres as possible and go to crazy fun parties as often as you can to feel all the good vibes. I wish I could go to all the parties in the world :))

April: Rachel Mae Tyson

Name: Rachel Mae Tyson
Occupation: Stylist @ ASOS
Where is home to you? Worcestershire
Mission in Life: To be content in life and one day live somewhere where it’s hot everyday…. L.A?

IMG_9045

How did you get in to what you are doing? I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t interested in fashion. When I started University I began freelancing and assisting on shoots whenever and wherever I could. From there, it slowly just became my job! My first real styling gig was for Selfridges personal shopping where I was literally thrown in the deep end working with fashion royalty like Sienna Miller and some mega celebs. I loved it!

What do you think makes a good stylist? It sounds like such a generic answer but the main thing is just having an eye for fashion. Putting pieces together that you wouldn’t think would work but do! There is nothing more exciting than seeing a new trend that no one is doing and thinking I’m going to try that!

 

IMG_9074

How has your style changed over time? My style changes every week! I definitely dress more to fit my mood and I feel I express myself with  my clothes now. From living in London and working in Camden, I’m, not scared to wear pretty outrages pieces when I’m in the mood!

Perks of the job? Working with inspiring people everyday! Getting to see the new trends before they hit ASOS site is exciting.

 

IMG_8995
How would you describe your style? At the moment my style is very 70s drive. I’ve always loved the old school Cali style. I love colours and pieces that stand out – you can normally spot me a mile away!

Do you plan every shoot/outfit in advance or just go with the flow?
What are most exciting trends for Summer 15? The summer is all about the 70s vibe for me. Big flares mixed with metallic, suede and sequins! Mega heels and bright colours.

Favourite go-to outfit? My bomber jacket, skinny jeans and a beanie
Ultimate style icon? Chloe Sevigny has been my style icon for life.
Junk food weakness? Chilli cheese fries 🙂
Where would we find you on a typical Friday night? At the pub with my mates drinking cider and black!
