I’m very excited to share the latest video in my series, The Chyaz Interviews, with you all! I sat down with the amazing Laila K from Sonic Boom Six to chat about everything from fashion and beauty to exercise and struggles with body image. The interview was incredibly inspirational and refreshingly honest, and is totally deserving of its 30 minute running time!
I actually first met Laila after Sonic Boom Six supported Reel Big Fish in Leeds a few years ago. It was an incredibly brief meeting – she was wearing an awesome outfit and I spotted her after the gig and complimented her! Fast forward a couple of years – I was on a night out with Zoe (The London Lipgloss) and Leanne Woodfull, and we met up with Laila, Barney and some other fab people. I immediately spotted that she had a Black Milk Clothing sticker on her phone, and she saw that I was wearing my Alice dress. We had a great natter about the brand and kept in touch afterwards!
With The Chyaz Interviews, I love to ask about beauty and fashion (after all, that’s what PunkChyaz has been all about!) but I also wanted to ask Laila about a few things she has talked about on her own blog. I know she’s a huge fan of DDP Yoga, and has experienced issues with food and her body image – these are things that I’m often asked about, and thought it would be helpful for you guys to hear about Laila’s experiences. We also had a quick chat about music, and how her band are doing!
I really enjoyed filming the interview, and hope you guys love watching it – please feel free to leave a comment letting us know what you thought! If you’d like to visit Laila’s blog, or find her on Twitter, all of the links you need are in the description box of the video.
Thank you so much to Laila for taking part in the interview!
