As the adidas adicolour collection arrives in New Zealand, we managed to get a minute with the brusy lady herself to find out how she keeps fit, healthy and beautiful, all while dealing with life's busy demands.
How does it feel to be the face of the adidas ‘Original is Never Finished’ campaign?
It’s so exciting to be included in such a talented group of people. I’ve always been a fan of the creative content and product that adidas puts out so I’m extremely happy to be part of the family.
What does ‘Original is Never Finished’ mean to you?
If you are being true to yourself and being truly original you will always continue to evolve- it just happens naturally.
What is your favourite piece from the new adicolor collection?
The adicolor bodysuit! It looks great with other pieces from the collection and even just a pair of jeans or shorts.
What inspired you to first start your blog, Sweat The Style?
At the time (2013) there was nothing out there that intersected Style, Fitness, Food, and Health. So I wanted to create a platform for other like minded individuals to be informed and inspired from.
What has been the highlight of your blogging/modelling career so far?
Honestly being part of the adidas family. Sportswear is such a huge part of my personal style and perspective and I consider adidas to be a leader in that arena. I love having the opportunity to grow with a brand that shares the same vision as myself and be able to contribute to that culture on a larger official scale.
You’re a successful blogger and model, the face of adidas Originals, an Instagram It Girl, regular traveller and more recently, a swimwear designer – how do you fit it all in and what advice can you give other enterprising young women who are striving to do the same?
If you are true to yourself and love what you do you will always make the time to get things done. Also very important -don’t waste time and energy on something that doesn’t feel right.
We love your Ho On The Go series! Where is your favourite place to work out ‘on the go’?
I travel and workout so much that I have a trainer in almost every city I frequent. By far my favorite place to work out is in the Tuileries Garden by the Louvre in Paris. I have a trainer in Paris who will set up battle ropes, medicine balls, and create workout stations in the garden. When I’m there I feel so blessed to be able to work out in such a beautiful, iconic, and historical place.
What is your number one tip for flawless beauty – both inside and out?
I can go on forever about this but if I can only give one tip it would be to eat clean, whole organic foods. Nothing processed with ingredients that you can’t pronounce. That way you get all the nutrition you need and avoid the toxins that would eventually show themselves on your face and body.
