It's been super hard getting over post vacation blues so apologies for the radio silence (I have been posting more regularly on instagram though so if you did miss me, feel free to head on over. While I've been away, lots have been going on in Hong Kong like Mary Kay's Dream Beautiful Contest. It was a pity I couldn't have joined as it looked to be an amazing night full of beautiful makeup looks and super fun activities in addition to the show. One of our favourite models, Coco Rocha was the guest judge and we couldn't resist doing a Geek Peek with her. Read on to see what fashion item she can't live without, what cuisine she could eat every day and not be sick of and her secret ambition.
HKFG: What’s on your lust list?
CR: 1) The new Apple watch. We have to wait until spring of 2015! I'm going to be a mom soon so I'm obsessed with tech baby products. 2) The origami stroller looks amazing. 3) My new book 'Study Of Pose'! It's a beautiful book, as an object and has been a real labor of love these last two years.
HKFG: What fashion item can’t you live without?
CR: For the fall I'm so excited to wear a cape!
HKFG: What’s the thing you could live without... but still can’t bear to part with?
CR: I still have my childhood teddy bear at home. His name is "Baby Bear" and he is looking worse for wear but I could never throw him out!
HKFG: What’s your favourite thing about Hong Kong?
CR: I love the views here! It's a beautiful city. In Manhattan you never really get to appreciate the sky scrapers and architecture because you're in the middle of it all the time, what I love about Hong Kong is that there are so many beautiful views of the city from all angles.
HKFG: Tell us your secret ambition.
CR: I'd love to be able to sing. I can carry a tune but I'm not great at it. One day I'd love to take some voice lessons.
HKFG: What’s the song that you sing in the shower?
CR: Probably something from Les Miserables.
HKFG: Your ultimate indulgence food or go-to food when you’re stressing out?
CR: I love Korean BBQ. I could have that every day, forever and never get tired of it.
HKFG: The celebrity you would most like to be/trade places with is...
CR: Probably Elizabeth Taylor, she was the epitome of glamour.
HKFG: What was your first big investment purchase?
CR: I bought my first apartment in New York around 8 years ago, it was at the height of the market, right before the crash in the economy, so it probably wasn't the best investment!
HKFG: Name your secret-weapon beauty product.
CR: I love Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream. Especially with the amount of travel I do, my skin can get very dehydrated. Using this every night is a must!
HKFG: What’s your worst nightmare?
CR: I sometimes have a nightmare where I lose my teeth and it's horrible!
HKFG: Last thing you think about before going to sleep?
CR: Probably the little baby that's growing inside me! I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl!
HKFG: What’s your favourite iPhone app?
CR: I love my social media, I'd say my instagtam and sina weibo.
HKFG: What were your last five Google searches?
CR: "Hong Kong dollars to US dollar conversion calculator"; "Study Of Pose Amazon.com"; "Phillips Hue lights"; "Liza Minelli and Judy Garland duet video" and "chimney sweeps Westchester NY"
