LA Mode – I get to meet Chloe Bennet, one of the ambassadors of the beautiful philosophy of BOSS ALIVE perfume, on the phone. Despite the fact that we are in different time zones and on different continents (Chloe lives in Los Angeles), I immediately feel the warmth and positive energy emanating from her. This is one of these woman to woman conversations which I find very inspiring and memorable.
You are a part of the beautiful project that is BOSS ALIVE and the philosophy of living the life to the fullest that is connected with it. Please tell me what makes you feel alive?
I think having time with my family makes me feel alive, when we meet and have a really big energetic meal. I grew up in a big family so my most prized time to this day is always just a big, joyful family meal. Spending quality time with my friends and my family definitely brings me joy. Being creative and working on set makes me feel alive, too.
Recently we have been affected by changes connected with Coronavirus, which forced us to alter our lifestyle. How are you coping with this?
That’s true, there has been so much change recently, but it has also been a really interesting time for everybody. I think the key to coping with it is positive thinking. Every day you wake up and you try to see the positive aspects of the situation. For me, for instance, having some forced downtime has been somewhat of a blessing in disguise. I’ve been working non-stop for ten years straight but now I have time, for example, to read books and to rediscover what I like outside of work. For many women, especially driven women who are passionate about their work, like me, it’s hard to slow down. It has been really nice to rediscover my love of certain books and painting and cooking and just picking up the phone, calling my family and having longer conversations with them without rushing anywhere. So, I actually feel almost more connected to people than I did before.
