It's clear Rosie HW takes her health seriously, just look at her gym filled Instagram account. And even though it's her job to look amazing (and she's clearly won the gene pool lottery), we were pleased to hear that staying healthy is super important to Rosie on a personal, more mental level, when we got the chance to sit down with her at the launch of Coca Cola Life:  

How important is fitness to you?
My mum's a fitness instructor, so growing up it was all about being active, rain or shine – horse riding, swimming or playing tennis. This has followed me into my adult life. I feel my best when exercising. There are times when I can't for a couple of weeks and I feel groggy and lazy. As soon as I work out again, I'm energised and happier, and my diet falls back into balance. For me, exercise is where it starts.

So you really enjoy it?
Some people say they don't want to exercise, but there's always a way to make it fun. If going to the gym isn't your thing then maybe tennis is, or a dance class with your girlfriends. And I always think, the harder you work in that hour, the better you're going to feel when you walk out.

What's your diet like?
I really enjoy food and never deprive myself. I don't believe in fad dieting – I believe in enjoying everything in balance. I travel a lot so I often eat out, but I try to enjoy myself. Nobody wants to be that girl ordering a salad. At home I cook healthily – scrambled eggs with spinach and a green juice for breakfast, and chicken or fish with tons of vegetables and salad for lunch and dinner. I also try to keep all the food in my house organic. It's an investment, but really important to me.

What does the word 'healthy' mean to you? 
Happiness, exercise, nature and laughter.

When you feel low, what gives you a boost?
A yoga class, or maybe just some time at home with my thoughts. I like listening to music and spending time with my girlfriends. One thing that always makes me feel great is a good haircut or blow-dry.

What are your last- minute feel-good tricks?
I always carry my 'three-minute face' with me – it's good when I get off a plane and am faced with photographers. It's cover-up, concealer and blusher – and all the products are multipurpose. I put the blush on my lips, cheeks and even my eyes. Those three products serve me well.
