I met Ashley while she was running on the beach. The second I saw her I knew I HAD to interview her.
She was running the stairs, wearing some super hot, sporty workout attire & looked totally approachable.
We started talking & she’s honestly the sweetest, cutest girl ever. Like, ever, ever. When you’re THAT beautiful, and you’re nice & funny, it’s a real, serious plus. No one likes some stuck-up bia-tch that thinks she’s the shit.
Yaaaaa. We all know kind.
This babe is the total opposite; she’s just lovely. Can’t wait to grab some champs with her next time she’s in the US ( she’s based out of Australia ).
Soooo get excited to meet the gorg, Ashley Osborne:
+ Introduce yourself.
I’m a twenty three year old Australian gal! I’m a full time model, whether I am in sunny Australia, or in the bustling city of NYC. None the less that doesn’t shape my personality, I was brought up in a small beach town called Newcastle, & enjoy the simpler things in life. I love staying active whether its running the beach, doing a gym class, or taking a board out with my boy; as long as its fun I’ll have a go!
+ Tell us all about your cute ( & famous, Julian Wilson ) surfer boyfriend!
Julian is pretty much my best friend. I could talk to him every day, all day & not get bored. We do long distance which can be hard, so the time we have together is really cherished. He’s extremely focused & hard working, which I find to be a really attractive quality. It’s not just shown in his surfing but in our relationship & the relationship with his family & other people who are important to him. What I love is the fun we have together, whether its playing backyard ball, or if he’s patiently teaching me to surf; we’re always up to something active.
+ Quick skinny trick?
I personally don’t go too crazy with diets. I’ve tried them before & I was miserable!! But when I do get serious I try stick to a healthy plan of less carb/more protein. This means lean meat & lots of fruits/veg. If I have bread I chose multi-grain. Next step is to cut out the sugar & the alcohol, not only will you feel better, you won’t be dealing with those embarrassing Facebook pics of your wild night the next day!
+ If you had to do a bikini shoot in a week, how would you prepare?
I won’t stress about it; that’s the worst thing I could do. Because I try keep my workout consistent I shouldn’t have to alter my routine too much in that area. As a lot has to do with your diet though, I can be known to have a bit of a sweet tooth. So cutting out desert and that cheeky wine time makes the world of a difference!
+ Tell, tell. Weekly workout schedule?
Depends where I am! If I’m in Australia I’ll be running its beautiful beaches daily & attending yoga classes. If I’m in New York I become a bit of a gym junkie mixing it up between spin classes, Pilates, & barre burn ( my most favorite workout!! ). Having the variety keeps things interesting. You don’t want to be counting down from the moment you start your work out to the moment you finish- that’s just torture!
+ Healthy food go-to?
I’m a little obsessed with acai bowls. If I’m not making them myself I’ll be becoming a regular at a place where does make them. They’re a nice & light breakfast option & I find them the best to work out on! Plus they are packed with antioxidants, so give me natural energy hit any day!
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
My motivation is getting into a bikini & feeling like I’m at my best in front of the camera. I also love staying in shape as I feel more energetic & confident to do anything. I think it’s really empowering as a woman to exercise, it makes me feel strong & independent. Plus having a work out goal or finishing a hard class feels like such a great achievement. We should all give ourselves a pat on the back more often.
+ Beauty product you die over?
A product I like is this cheek & lip stain by Stila cosmetics. It’s nice to apply for a bit of natural colour for a flushed & lively look. I personally like the passionfruit crush color!
+ Natural beauty remedy?
I haven’t always had the greatest skin growing up ( after all I am human ). I finally cured my teen zits but still had to deal with the nasty scarring. Due to this I have always applied this rosehip oil. It diminishes scars and makes the rest of your skin glow without blocking pores. Best news ever, ladies: it’s dirt cheap!
+ Secret model tip for diet and health?
Don’t take it too seriously, working out is supposed to be enjoyable! Eat healthy & exercise happy! Your smile will do the rest of the work for you!
+ Quick, easy recipe:
This is not my recipe, but it’s something that I love to make as a healthier alternative to chocolate! If you haven’t already you should try it out! A little dessert:
A handful of raw almonds
A scoop of vanilla powder
16 fresh dates, pitted
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon natural vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Coconut flakes, goji berry, cacao, nuts, for rolling
+ Directions: throw almonds into the food processor with cinnamon, protein powder & cocoa then process until the mix looks crumbly. Add dates & vanilla extract; then process again until the mix starts to come together. Add a splash of water if you need to so that mixture is soft and forms a soft ball. Form into fourteen decent sized balls. Roll in coconut or any other of my suggested coatings and store in the fridge until you feel like a snack or quick meal on the run. Store in the fridge for up to four weeks.
