the Bali Body babe who's powered by plants, Valeria Rey.

She's the ultra babe who shares her healthy vegan lifestyle with over 250,000 Instagram followers. Being a proudly 100% vegan brand, we thought it would only be right to catch up with Valeria to chat about cruelty free living, fitness tips and essential beauty advice.

First thing you do in the morning?
I immediately get up after my alarm goes off otherwise I fall back asleep. Then I wash my face, brush my teeth and get ready to hit the gym 

Your go-to breakfast meal for energy to keep you going all day?
Green Smoothies are my favourite, but lately I’ve been really into overnight oats, mixed with almond milk, cacao powder, nuts and seeds, topped with dates and fresh fruit. It keeps me full for the entire morning 

What inspired you to go vegan? 
After I watched Cowspiracy, What The Health and Okja on Netflix I knew that going vegan was the right thing to do. I highly recommend to watch them, they are life changing! 

Things you can’t live without…
Wholesome vegan food, my family and Bali Body Moisturising Sunscreen of course, its my favourite!

Most vital piece of beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face. It’s about having a pretty mind, pretty heart and a pretty soul. Everyone is so concerned about how they look that they totally forget what’s really important, who you are as a person

Your go-to comfort food?
In fall and winter I love to make pumpkin curries or vegan chilli con carne because they keep me warm and full 

Any tips for girls wanting to start their fitness journey? 
Just start, and follow lots of other girls that are already doing what you want to do. So you can recreate their workouts and follow their tips and tricks

Next stop on your vacay list? 
I will definitely be going to Jamaica next, since my boyfriend is from there, and then Hawaii and Peru for sure!

You’re going on a tropical vacay, what are you packing?
Lots of bikinis, Bali Body Pineapple Tanning Oil and oh my boyfriend of course!
