We met Emily a few years back in Puamana Maui and instantly loved her. She is one of the kindest, warmest people we have encountered. She is currently living in Costa Rica building her holistic nutrition brand @wholesomeslice but we are happy to say that she will be back for the show. Although some of you might recognize this SUPERBABE from the HIATUS MUSIC FESTIVAL this will be her first time walking the Catwalk for Fenntessa.
Fenntessa: This year's collection is inspired by sports. Do you have a favourite sport or physical activity? Can you describe some of the things you do to stay healthy, happy and swimsuit ready
Emily: My favourite sport is basketball & I love to run around the seawall. Currently, I'm interning at a yoga retreat in Costa Rica. So, I've been very fortunate to be able to practice yoga, swim, drink lots of the filtered spring water, eat 3 nutrient-dense vegan meals each day, wake up with the sun and go to sleep with the sun. I've felt very happy & healthy while being here - I'm sure the vitamin D really helps!
Fenntessa: We all have to eat. But what are your fave foods when you're trying to stay in tip top shape? On the other hand, What is your favourite junk food?
Emily: My favourite health food is hummus and veggies. I love snacking so this is a great option for me to control my hunger, with a good balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein. My other favourite food is popcorn.
Fenntessa: We know you are all ‘Super Babes’, but what about super powers? If you could have one super power what would it be?
Emily: To teleport, there are so many places I'd love to see in the world.
Fenntessa: We LOVE to travel. What's the best vacation you've ever taken?
Emily: Costa Rica!! Jungle, waterfalls, surf, beach, monkeys, and delicious food - it's been life changing.
Fenntessa: Any words to live by or special quote?
Emily: I'm a nutritionist so I really believe in the quote, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" - Hippocrates.
