Inspirational Woman: Ali Mutch

Inspirational Woman: Ali Mutch

Ali Mutch is a former model, well known TV presenter, writer, journalist, producer and personal trainer. Born in England, she moved to Australia when she was 12. She currently juggles her time between presenting for TVSN, being mum to Phoenix, 3, working as a personal trainer for her business InnerFireFitness and her tots and babies photography company, Phoenix & Wren Photography.

 

What does natural beauty mean to you?

It's a genuine smile or a giggle that bubbles up from deep within and makes others around you feel happy. A smattering of freckles or the soft crinkles at the corners of your eyes, that are like a little road map of your life journey or simply a feature that makes you different and uniquely beautiful.

 

Do you live a green life?

I try to live a fairly green life by doing small things that help reduce my footprint but I know I could be doing so much more. We are teaching our 3-year-old daughter important things like recycling, not wasting power, saving water, re-using paper for art projects (instead of going through colouring books at a rate of knots) and sustainability. We're growing veggies in her own little garden and we're going to find somewhere to plant trees to replace paper we use.

 

What's your daily beauty regime?

I try to drink lots of water, to fit exercise into the day (even if it's dancing around living room with Phoenix) and to keep smiling!

 

Are you a healthy eater?

We eat fairly healthily but I do slip chocolate, chippies and the odd glass of wine in! :) Phoenix eats loads of fruit and vegetables, so there are always plenty of healthy options around the house to snack on.

 

Do you have any natural/DIY beauty recipes?

DIY beauty recipes ... When I’m at the beach, I use the sand and salt water to exfoliate my skin.

 

Best natural beauty tip?

... holidays!!! Seeing family! You get a certain natural glow :)

 

How do you stay fit and healthy?

When I’m being good I train at a fantastic little boutique gym in Brookvale called Code 5. They have really diverse training, anything from Boxing and weights to cross training and hill sprints. I was also recently involved in a charity race for the Starlight Foundation, called The Great Adventure Challenge. We had 19 corporate teams, completing 85kms of mountain biking, running and kayaking in about 4 hours 50 minutes! Team TVSN raised $22,000 for the kids :)

 

What's your favourite thing about living in Sydney?

The Northern Beaches has the relaxed beach lifestyle, paired with the energy of a big city. I love the diverse geographic layout of Sydney too, it's certainly not flat and featureless. Every where you go is beautiful and unique.

 

How do you most like to spend family time?

Life is so much fun at the moment with a 3-going-on-33-year-old!! We spend loads of time exploring, going for walks, playing at the beach, dancing around the house, being silly and loving life! Seeing the world through a child's eyes is a true gift! We'll be going over to WA for a whole month at Christmas to see all our family, going camping and just relaxing. I can't wait!!

 

What are your strengths and weaknesses as a mum?

I think every mum has instinct, empathy, compassion and pure love and devotion. Phoenix tells me I’m fun, silly, that I give great hugs and I have nice eyes!! :) I absolutely adore being a mum and I hope that I’m teaching Phoenix to be a kind, caring, unique and intelligent little girl (although at 3 she's already teaching me way more than I can teach her!!) My weakness may be that, although I’m fairly strict, she's learning how to twist my arm already!!

 

Absolute beauty must haves?

Working at TVSN is quite dangerous as we get to try and buy so many beautiful skincare, haircare and makeup brands. I have always loved Ere Perez for their natural beauty approach, but also the stunning results from the ever growing range of make up. Right now I'm addicted to skincare, Skinn by Dimitri James and Lily Herbceuticals, Richard Ward or Oil of Morocco haircare and Lisa Hoffman, Tuscan Fig fragrance.

 

Favourite Ere Perez products?

Have you got another 2 pages of room?! I love the Volumising Waterproof Mascara for summer! Must have for the beach :) I adore the Pure Rice Powder Bronzer - it has the silkiest texture on the skin and gives you that vacation glow. I put it on my face, my décolletage and tops of my shoulders!! I'm slightly addicted to most of the blushers in the range, especially the beetroot cheek and lip tint: You can be feeling tired, ashen and flat, but you pop that on quickly and you're instantly transformed!! I have one in my handbag at all times and one in my bathroom. I use the Better Than Smokey Eye Shadow Duo for work and for evenings and Very Important for a daytime look. What I love about the entire range is that it uses natural ingredients that aren't harsh on my sensitive skin, is free from parabens and other nasties and never tested on animals!

Mujeres que Inspiran: Ali Mutch

Ali Mutch es una reconocida conductora de televisión, ex modelo, escritora, periodista, productora y entrenadora personal. Nació en Inglaterra y se mudó a Australia cuando tenía 12 años. Actualmente divide su tiempo entre su trabajo como conductora de TVSN y ser mamá de Phoenix, quien tiene 3 años de edad. También trabaja como entrenadora personal para su propio negocio InnerFireFitness y tiene su compañía de fotografía especializada en bebés y niños pequeños “Phoenix & Wren Photography”.

 

¿Qué significa para ti la belleza natural?

Es una sonrisa genuina o una risita que brota de dentro de ti y hace a los que están cerca de ti sentirse felices. Son el conjunto de pecas o las pequeñas arrugas alrededor de tus ojos, las cuales son como un mapa del viaje de tu vida o simplemente una característica de ti que te hace ser diferente a los demás.

 

¿Vives una vida verde?

Trato de vivir una vida verde haciendo pequeñas acciones que ayudan a reducir mi huella por el planeta, pero sé que podría hacer mucho más. Le estamos enseñando a nuestra hija de tres años temas importantes como el reciclaje, reducir el gasto de energía, ahorrar agua, reutilizar el papel para hacer trabajos de arte (en vez de utilizar libros de colorear, uno tras otro) y la sustentabilidad.

 

¿Cuál es tu régimen diario de belleza?

Trato de tomar mucha agua, de ejercitarme durante el día (aunque sea bailar en la sala de mi casa con Phoenix) y sonreír.

 

¿Comes sanamente?

Comemos bastante saludable, pero no he dejado el chocolate, las papas fritas y una buena copa de vino. Phoenix come muchas frutas y verduras así que siempre hay opciones saludables en la casa para comer como snack.

 

¿Tienes alguna receta de belleza natural?

Receta de belleza natural…cuando estoy en la playa, uso la arena y agua de mar para exfoliar mi piel.

 

¿Cuál es tu mejor tip de belleza natural?

¡Vacacionar!!! ¡Ver a tu familia! Eso te da un brillo natural.

 

¿Cómo le haces para mantenerte sana y en forma?

Cuando me porto bien entreno en un pequeño gimnasio boutique en Brookvale, se llama Code 5. Ahí cuentan con diversos tipos de entrenamiento desde box y pesas hasta cross y entrenamiento para hacer sprints en colina. Hace poco me involucré en un maratón de caridad “The Great Adventure Challenge” para la Fundación Starlight. Se unieron 19 equipos corporativos, ¡completamos 85 kms haciendo bicicleta de montaña, corriendo y practicando kayac en 4 horas y 50 minutos! El equipo TVSN recaudó $22,000 dólares para los niños.

 

¿Cuál es tu parte favorita de vivir en Sídney?

En las playas del norte se tiene un estilo de vida relajado, junto con la energía de una gran ciudad. Amo la diversidad geográfica de Sídney, la cual no es plana y sin forma, a donde quiera que voltees en hermoso y único.

 

¿Cómo disfrutas tu tiempo en familia?

La vida es mucho más divertida cuando tienes 33 y la compartes con alguien de 3. Pasamos mucho tiempo explorando, haciendo caminatas, bailando alrededor de la casa, haciendo cosas tontas y amando la vida. Ver el mundo a través de los ojos de un niño es un verdadero regalo. Iremos a WA un mes entero a pasar la Navidad y ver a toda nuestra familia, ir a acampar y simplemente relajarnos. ¡No puedo esperar más!

 

¿Cuáles son tus fortalezas y debilidades como mamá?

Creo que todas las mamás tenemos instinto, empatía, compasión, amor puro y devoción. Phoenix me dice que soy divertida, ocurrente, que doy grandes abrazos y que tengo ojos lindos. Adoro ser mamá y espero estar enseñando a Phoenix a ser una niña amable, consciente, única e inteligente, (aunque ella tiene 3 años me está enseñando más de lo que yo le enseño a ella). Mi debilidad es que aunque son muy estricta, ella sabe cómo hacerme torcer el brazo con ella.

 

¿Cuáles son tus productos esenciales de belleza?

Trabajar en TVSN es muy peligroso ya que tenemos que probar muchas líneas de productos de cuidado de la piel, cabello y de maquillaje. Siempre me ha encantado Ere Perez por su enfoque en belleza natural y también por sus impresionantes resultados de la creciente línea de productos. Ahora soy adicta a la línea de cuidado de la piel “Skinn by Dimitri James” y “Lily Herbceuticals”, “Richard Ward” o “Oil of Morocco haircare” y “Lisa Hoffman, Tuscan Fig fragrance”.

 

¿Cuáles son tus productos favoritos de Ere Perez?

¿Tienes otras dos hojas de espacio? ¡Amo la Mascara Voluminizadora contra agua para el verano! Es indispensable para la playa. Adoro el Bronceador a base de Arroz, tiene una textura de seda en el rostro y te da ese resplandor de vacaciones, lo uso en mi rostro, cuello y hombros. Soy adicta a todos los rubores de la línea, especialmente al Tinte Multiusos con extracto de Betabel: puedes sentirte cansada y ¡con tan sólo un poco de este tinte te transformas por completo! Siempre tengo uno en mi bolso y otro en mi baño. Utilizo la Sombra con Manzanilla en tono Better than Smokey para el trabajo y para la noche y el tono Very Important para un look de día. Lo que amo de la línea es que utiliza ingredientes naturales que no son agresivos con mi piel sensible, es libre de parabenos y otros tóxicos y no se prueba en animales.
