Ten things you didn’t know about me! So you guys are probably wondering who the HELL I am. I thought, what better way to break the ice than to do a short Q&A! I chose a few questions, nothing to crazy yet because we just met ♥️. People are curious by nature, so I thought this would be a fun way to get to know a little more about me. I have been having a lot of new visitors to the site and I want to say “welcome and thank you” fly chicks and gents for stopping by.
You guys tell me, do people really check out the bio page on websites anymore? Probably not as much as we bloggers would like. But, it is a good idea to check it out when you are cruising a site, just to have to some background on that person or company. I like doing Q&A’s and plan to do a lot more of them in the coming future.
1. WHAT IS MY FIRST NAME?
If you guys haven’t figured it out by the name of the website, ‘COCOACHERA,’ my first name is Chera. It is pronounced with a strong “ch” sound like “cheese or cherry” and you just add the ‘a’! From the research I’ve done online, it means princess. I don’t think my mother knew the meaning or meant to use that name for it’s meaning. She had a friend with the same name and she liked it so much she stole it! I always get compliments on it and have yet to meet another Chera (knocking on wood).
Confessions: When people mispronounce it, it’s bugs the hell out of me. I try to be nice when I correct them, but that sh*t gets annoying. LOL Can y’all relate?
2. WHAT IS COCOACHERA, THE SITE ,ABOUT?
Well I guess I’ll start with how I came up with the name. The name was actually created during a brainstorming session. My Jules loves my chocolatey-bronze skin and says it reminds him of cocoa. So I became COCOACHERA.
COCOACHERA is my love, my life, my everything. It is a site where people can come and read about virtually anything having to do with lifestyle, health and fitness, natural beauty, make-up, hair, fashion (some), love, relationships and spirituality. It’s my personal take on things and pretty much a one-stop shop catered to anyone interested in those topics. I’ve been working really hard creating quality content for you and will continue. Expect to laugh and be uplifted from time to time. Cool-ish is coming!
3. WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT BLOGGING?
What I love most about blogging or writing is self-expression to say and write about whatever the hell I want and feel no guilt, no regret. I love creating and being able to vibe out on subjects. It is an extension of who I am as a person and I want to share it with you.
4. HOW DID I GET INTO BLOGGING?
I shared a brief story about how I started in my bio. And thinking back, that’s still true, except that now I can say I didn’t know how much I would love it. Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. A passion was born.
5. WHAT IS MY FAVORITE COCKTAIL?
Well I have many girls and guys, let me just say that now! 😜But, if I had to choose my favorite, I would say a mojito. I love the mint and cane sugar mixed together with the rum. It’s just the best.
6. WHAT IS MY FAVORITE ONLINE SHOPPING SITE?
Fashion Nova. I mean… do I need to say anything else! LOL
7. WHAT IS MY BIGGEST PET PEEVE?
Biggest peeve is when people don’t take accountability for themselves and admit their faults. I just feel like if you do something wrong, be it a mistake or on purpose, and it negatively impacts yourself and others in your circle, that you should just own up to it. If you are a grown adult you should take responsibility for yourself and not deflect your issues, your mistakes or faults onto others.
8. DO I HAVE A PET AND WHAT IS THEIR NAME?
I have two cats. Harmony, that’s my baby girl and Caramel, my fat man! They are my family.
9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING I DO WHEN I GET UP IN THE MORNING?
Give thanks for everything and everyone in my life. I just did a post on my new found appreciation for life that you guys should definitely check out! I think some people often lose site of how blessed they truly are and how there are people out here in the world that would gladly take your place if they had the opportunity. Be grateful and say thank you everyday.
10. WHAT IS MY STYLE?
Comfy-cute, most of the time. I like to be comfortable. I love sweatpants and sneakers, t-shirts and high-waisted skinny jeans. I’m a simple girl mostly. There are those times when I want to be extra cute. So I might wear a tighter top or some heels to spice things up. As far as make-up, I’m a plain Jane 85% of the time. Well that concludes this Q&A! I hope you enjoyed and learned something about me. I will be doing an extended version of this Q&A on my YouTube Channel, where you guys will get to meet my two daughters and get to know even MORE about me!
