Meet CHA ladies (left to right) Colinda, Chiara & Thirza. With more than 30 CHA items in their possession, we thought it was time to get to know these amazing & loyal women better than we already did. We had an amazing day together in village Nootdorp. Get inspired by the openess & honesty of this beautiful family!
1. What describes you in 3 words and what makes you happiest?
Colinda: Calm, positive, caring. Camping in a tent and taking beautiful walks in nature.
Chiara: Difficult to describe myself in three words, because I am sometimes a doubter;) otherwise empathic and a go-getter.
Thirza: Caring, perfectionist and creative. Coming home to my family makes me happiest. Two happy girls who come to hug and a man I am proud of.
2. What is your passion and how do you keep your motivation high every day?
Colinda: My passion is taking care of and caring about the people who make me feel are dear. My motivation is love.
Chiara: At the moment I am mainly involved in giving massages. Working with feeling and being in a nice flow, wonderful. Often a personal conversation before and afterwards. The connection you can make with customers is great. Soon I also want to focus on coaching again, help someone take a step further in the right direction, see their own strengths and motivate them, a great challenge. Experiencing learning processes and success experiences is really special! Immediately a mirror for yourself too.
Thirza: My passion is to be there for others. I teach and find it important to get the best out of the children. Helping the children a step further in their development every day and building a bond together. I also like to be there for my family and friends, they can always count on me.
3. What was your last Naked Truth win and can you tell us a bit more about your approach?
Colinda: I made the choice to leave the city and buy a smaller house on the edge of a forest in Brabant. Searched for the perfect house in the perfect place for several years. Ultimately much less monthly costs so decided to stop working and enjoy the beautiful and important things in life.
Chiara: Naked truth for me is being happy with who you are and what you look like! I try to focus on what I see as my advantages, inside and outside! Life is too short to worry about a booty or belly that is just too big haha
Thirza: My last victory is that I started a diet and that this is going very well. I am now working on myself and I am consciously concerned with what I eat, my kitchen scale now goes everywhere. I am now also enjoying sports which makes me feel fitter. The best part is that everyone actually sees it. I am very happy with it. I feel more and more myself and I radiate this inside out.
4. What do you prefer to spend your time on in your spare time?
Colinda: Preferably outside or working around in the garden or reading. But I also like to take the bike to Delft or The Hague center. Preferably a different route every time. Looking for nice places and cozy shops. Of course drink coffee with carrot cake somewhere. My favourite.
Chiara: I prefer to go to the beach with someone. All year round, seeing the sunset, a party, pizza at my favorite beach club, get some fresh air. The sound of the sea makes me completely zen.
Thirza: I like to spend my time with family and friends. Eating together, having a drink or a fun activity. My oldest daughter Chloe loves theme parks and zoos, doing things like that together makes me happy. I like to bake and cook things too. I also like shopping and beautiful brands. Recently I can be found in the gym again and this also makes me happy. After a little swim and sauna, time for myself, I can really enjoy that.
5. How does CHA make you feel?
Colinda: Feeling of luxury, comfort and quality in combination with the appearance (modern). It is a shoe that suits me and gives me the feeling of a warm blanket.
Chiara: Warm & cozy!
Thirza: CHA gives me a feeling of warmth, luxury and comfort. They are items that last a long time and remain beautiful.
6. What are your core values in work, love, friendships & lifestyle?
Colinda: Work: commitment, passion. Love: dedication, trust, tranquility. Friendship: authenticity, commitment. Lifestyle: balance, tranquility, quality
Chiara: I prefer to do something right or not at all. So there is a bit of perfectionism. I find it important to follow my feelings, intuition says it all! And that the people around me can be themselves, authenticity is the best thing there is, knowing we are all unique.
Thirza: Health, enthusiasm, openness, confidence, positivity, security and balance.
7. What is your top 3 bucket list and which one would you do first?
Colinda: buy a canoe, camp with the grandchildren and dance!
Chiara: Romantic Paris, Florence and to experience that mega big city vibe in New York again. I can already see myself walking there think about what I want to eat there. But also a road trip through nature.
Thirza: My bucket list is not compatible with the current situation for the time being, but I would love to do so when I can travel again. I would love to go to New York with my family one more time. A tour of America with a camper is certainly on my bucket list. I think first the tour through America and later when the girls are a bit older walking together through New York and to South Africa.
8. What were the turning points in your life and have you decided to walk a different path?
Colinda: I found love 23 years ago as a 30-year-old single. This consists of a sweet beautiful man and his four beautiful children. I gave up my house and sold the car and the six of us moved in together in The Hague. This was not my vision of the future until I was thirty, but it brought me more than I could wish for.
Chiara: After two years as a coach within the GGZ, I decided it was time for a break, I started to focus on my work as a freelance make up artist and started training to become a skincare & massage specialist. How we take care of ourselves affects how we feel and what we radiate.
Thirza: Since April I have a new house and a new job, a completely different life. We were looking for a school for our daughters and by coincidence this turned out to be an application for me. I found it a difficult choice to quit my job in the middle of the school year and I also lost sleep over this. Yet I chose for myself and the peace and time that I have received as a result. I have not regretted for a second!
9. What is your favorite CHA look?
Colinda: Tibet, Risky and the Classic are my favorite! Mountain Boots in taupe are on my wishlist.
Chiara: The black Tibet Boots are really my favorite! I prefer to wear them with nice jeans and an oversized sweater, but also great under a dress!
Thirza: My favorite item is the Tibet & Classic low black, which I wore a lot during my pregnancies. They are wonderfully soft! I use my CHA backpack a lot the small mini bag when I go out for a night. The heels are also very nice. I am a huge fan of CHA and find it difficult to choose which one is a favorite :)
