The second instalment of our #AtHome With PAUSE feature, we threw some quick quarantine questions at Gonçalo Olivier who chats home songs, sandals, slippers, what he’s watching & more. See the exclusive Q&A in full below:
From street style to staying at home, how have you adapted?
It’s been a challenge, I think it’s time to be even more creative in terms of creating content. It’s time to be more entertaining also for the people who follow us and create a closer relationship with them because at this moment we have more time and it is more important than just showing clothes & sales content.
I think since I’m at home I’m sharing even more of me and my daily routine than before and I’m really enjoying that and having fun. Of course, I miss travelling, shooting outdoors and all of that… but hopefully, everything is gonna be ok and we will be back to that soon!
What is your go-to routine every day?
I’ve been waking up a bit late, my sleep routine is a bit of a mess, but when I’m awake this what I do: go to eat, play with my dogs, feed my turtles. I check the emails, do some stories sharing something of my day. After that, I do my work that can be photoshoots or video hauls – I’ve been taking notes on all the ideas to do at home and doing them. Also, I’ve been spending a lot of time on TikTok doing videos there.
Later, I have dinner with my fam, spend a bit of my time with them, and to end the night we watch a movie or series. Some days we play some games on PlayStation too, I’ve been trying to working out some days also.
Your favourite sneaker to wear at home?
Yeezy’s 350 boost, but when I’m with my dogs I just wear some old trainers that I have and don’t need to worry about they ruining it 😂😂
Your favourite sandals to wear at home?
I prefer slippers, and I have two pairs that I use more – super comfortable!
What are your top 5 essentials whilst at home?
5 songs you’re currently listening to?
Drake – Toosie Slide
Don Tolivier – No idea
Roses (Imanbeck Remix)
DripReport – Skechers prod. OUHBOY
Dillaz – Conto (Portuguese)
Best quarantine Netflix watch so far?
“Miracle in cell no.7” was the best movie I’ve seen since quarantine started.
3 key tips for keeping active at home?
⁃ Download TikTok 😂
⁃ Plan and set little goals to do since you have more time now and start doing it, at least 1 thing by day from that list so you feel that sense of accomplishment and keep motivated
⁃ Do some activity that makes you move, not only working out, you can also dance, do some kind of family game that make you get off the couch, or even in FaceTime with your friends. And don’t worry if it’s only 15 minutes. It’s better than nothing and you feel active!
Your favourite piece of furniture/item in your home and why?
My sneakers shelves, that are customized. It’s the place I’m most careful about and it’s always tidy up and clean in my room!
