Spend 5: Lauren Phillips

Lauren Phillips, a name synonymous with red carpet glamour, never ending wanderlust and now we can add fitness to the list as well. As the latest ambassador for FILA Australia you will soon be seeing the striking brunette as the face of one of the world’s most recognisable sporting and lifestyle labels. The Melbourne bred and born host has steadily been building her profile as one of Australia’s most celebrated t.v. and fashion personalities. Enjoying coveted hosting roles on Postcards and Getaway and as the ambassador for powerhouses MYER and Calvin Klein watches, Lauren keeps to a gruelling schedule. One which requires focus, dedication and upholding a healthy lifestyle. Aligning her name with a fitness and lifestyle brand was only a natural fit. TWAIN spend 5 with the sought after Phillips.

My morning doesn’t begin until: I’ve washed and dried my hair

My beauty regime looks a little like: Most days I try and keep it pretty simple. Cleanse, Moisturize, Foundation, Bronzer and Mascara

Tea or coffee: Coffee in the morning, Tea at night

On staying active: I get bored doing the same type of training so I really love to mix it up. I love running, boxing, HIIT and Bikram yoga.

To get motivated I: Make sure I’m wearing awesome work out gear. Feeling good in my training gear helps me get out of the house!

On becoming the face of FILA: I’m so excited! Keeping active and living a healthy life has always been on the top of my priority list so being able to make it a part of my job is really a dream come true. I live in my exercise gear when I’m running around between jobs and I love the new FILA Spring Summer Collection so I’m a very happy girl!

Fila is a good match because… the new collection combines fashion and practicality. It’s fresh, fun and cool.

Sportswear is… an enormous part of my wardrobe. I like to call it leisurewear. I wear it to the gym, to walk the dogs, to run errands and usually out for breakfast on the weekends.

Must have workout staples from the current FILA collection: My absolute favourite pieces are the Estella Tank and Energy Tights, we shot this outfit in white for the campaign.

The Penelope Sports Bra and Women’s Muscle Tank are a must and the Fila Capri’s, great printed running tights.

Best health tip I have received to date: Consistency is the key to getting and staying fit.

On healthy body image: Love the skin you’re in. We are all different shapes and sizes and we all need to embrace that. Love your body and treat it like a queen from the inside out.

My personal style is: Neat, Casual and relaxed.

My last big splurge was: A Saint Laurent handbag I bought in Barcelona.

Next on my hit list: Hopefully a house… but if I keep buying handbags it might never happen!

On travel: Travel is absolutely the greatest give you can give yourself. I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it’s on my list.

Currently reading: Scripts or Umm…. Do Instagram captions count?

On 2015 so far: It has been one of the best of my life, both personally and professionally.

Life Motto: It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.
