Behind the Seams: Courtnie & Toni

Haute People is back with another exciting Season of Behind the Seams! For this season you will meet Designers, Musicians, Socialites, Entrepreneurs and so much more! To kick off the season , we'll chat with the Dynamic duo Courtnie & Toni. If you don't know who Courtnie and Toni are.. you've not been out enough.

Courtnie & Toni
H.P: How did you guys meet?
Toni:We met in High-school, Campion, it was her, I and another girl who for some reason everyone thought were sisters or cousins so we naturally gravitated towards each other, I ended up dating her brother, we ended up at the same college and just developed a true unspoken friendship.
Courtnie: I've known Toni since high school…Everyone said we looked alike, so I had to meet this chick who had my face, and it’s been a ride or die friendship ever since.

H.P: Describe the other person using 3 words?
Toni: Beautiful, Trustworthy, Headstrong
Courtnie: Hilarious, impulsive and driven.

H.P: What is your favourite memory together?
Toni: Ha...memory, I literally feel like every week we create new amazing memories.  I can say though our last Summer was EPIC. I forced her to drive with me to Negril we stayed at Hedo - memory on its own- one night, then in Mobay at Palmyra with no electricity the next and then ended in Ochi at our friend's party villa for Kampai. I hope one day I find the courage to write about them all.
Courtnie: I honestly can’t pick just one. We do so much crazy sh*t on a regular basis. Some of the ones that come to mind are cruising around in our middle-of-nowhere college town in a hoopty giving mad trouble. Also last summer was amazing, especially SPF weekend and our Hedonism II adventures. And I also have to give honourable mention to when we were 16ish and really starting to do road, because we thought we were so grown up; just thinking about it makes me laugh…But I think most of our memories are just too juicy to share on this forum lol. [ps. I am the shy one ;-)]

H.P: When/how did you get into Blogging?
Toni: I love writing, its kind of what I have always done so I was silent Blogging on life in Jamaica, cooking and eating out when I realized Cor was also doing her picture Blog so we got to talking and we had thought about Vlogging... But I am really shy so we decided to start the Blog first.
The idea was really to share our opinions on stuff that we feel, hence why we do 'On...'  topics to kind of help girls through life. You can see what we do that works & follow and also see what we do that doesn't & DONT FOLLOW... Maybe I'll save a life, or a bad decision. ^_^
Courtnie: Well it's important to note that we are both in the Social Media field so Blogging is something that comes naturally to us. But the driving force behind the Blog was a few months ago, we started to get restless and we were looking to go exploring the world and what not, so we conceptualized a Blog to document a Eurotrip that we were planning. However, that fell through (for now), but the Blog is up and running and we are just having fun sharing our experiences, gaining more knowledge in the social media realm and expressing ourselves creatively.

H.P: On a Typical Friday Night .. we can find you at ....
Toni: Typical Fridays we are sleeping mostly because we don't like Uber, but Uber has been good so I think this season I could be doing a few Bacchanal Fridays/Ubers, but we much prefer to stay low key and hang out with each other at Cru or watch movies & just come out for the bigger parties. "Cuz jah know, we turn up".
Courtnie: This has two answers. We are either in bed watching a movie/reality TV marathon, or at some bar guzzling wine. After the wine guzzling, you can literally find us anywhere.

H.P: Finish the sentence "I cannot live without my .......
Toni: Cell phone...Lord I would die. But maybe that means without my Internet, I definitely need them both.
Courtnie: I cannot live without my chap stick! I am a chap stick addict. Besides that, definitely my cellphone. 

H.P: Favourite places to shop?
Toni: I love love on-line shopping my favourites are - CelebBoutique, NastyGal and FashionNova. For shopping in Jamaica I really like Posh by V in Barons Plaza, & Style Savvy & Zen in 7th Av. For bigger events I find styles I love and have them created for that I would def recommend Neahlis, Kaysian or YC (never personally used her)
Courtnie: My favourite places to shop are and Pablo’s fabric store! Lol I recently got into designing my own clothes so I like to go and look at the fabrics, and then I have a good friend who draws what I envision and a seamstress brings it to life.  

H.P:What can young Fashionistas" learn from Courtnie &Toni ?
Toni: From me I just hope they learn the importance of not being afraid. Whatever you think is perfect for you rock it! With that being said though... My other huge Fashion Law is to not leave your house unless your prepared to rock it. If you feel like going out to Ultra and want to wear jeans, not do your make-up AND wear flats just stay home. "Your confidence naw go pull you through". The second you decide to put on jeans put on some heels and accessories to match. Fashion has to cover your whole body I don't go out just to be there, I wanna be seen... And someone is always looking.
Courtnie: Fashion-wise, the most important thing for me is to be comfortable. If you’re uncomfortable in what you’re wearing, you won’t feel good and if you don’t feel good, you don’t look good. I also hate seeing girls in the club with their shoes off. It is the easiest way, in my opinion, to show that you are not about that hot girl life. If you can’t wear your heels throughout the night, just wear flats. You won’t look as tun up but you definitely look way worse with your damn shoes off.
