the chick herself


Hey everyone!

So I thought I might introduce myself, and let you in on the life of the girl behind the blog.

My name’s Kloe, and I’m a 21-year-old girl living in one of the most beautiful and breathtaking cities in the world: Sydney.

I’m studying Journalism at the University of Technology, Sydney. I absolutely love writing, and this paired with my naturally really inquisitive nature, and desire to know the truth, made me think that journalism was for me. I’ve got my sights set on writing for a women’s magazine; maybe have my own column or be an editor. I’d love to write about either health, fitness, nutrition, travel or fashion… don’t have my sights set or anything, right?! 😉

I’m also very passionate about fitness, healthy living and nutrition, so on top of uni, I’m training to become a group fitness instructor?personal trainer and hopefully will get to teach my favourite classes in my gym, and inspire others to lead healthy, active lives and make the most out of every day! To me, there’s absolutely nothing equal to a good, blood-pumping workout… or a hefty bowl of chocolate ice-cream, preferably with M&M’s and a quality brownie. (I may or may not also be a loyal chocolate addict…)
I’m extremely passionate about animal rights and so I could describe my eating style as vegan. This is what makes me feel my best and healthiest, as well as helping me feel like I’m making a difference and saving at least a few animals’ lives. I’m just trying to do my bit. I’m a big believer in eating a plant-based, whole foods lifestyle with lots of veggies, fruit, whole grains, healthy fats, nuts and seeds. I adore experimenting in the kitchen and trying out new recipes I discover, it’s what excites me and makes me happy.

I’m living life one day at a time, taking it all as it comes, jumping at every opportunity that presents itself, and just enjoying the ride.

I’m intoxicated with excitement about the future, and although I’m probably a bit ambitious and overly enthusiastic, I hope to make a real difference and achieve all I want to.

I was to be able to look back on my life and say, “God, that was an amazing journey. Wouldn’t have changed it for the world.”

  1. You are a beautiful girl and I look forward to reading more and getting to know you better! Love a girl who enjoys a good bowl of ice-cream, or two 😉 Yay for group fitness!!!

    • aw thankyou lovely lady! right back at you!
      oh definitely, if ice cream is involved, I’m making an appearance.. especially if it’s Ferrero rocher, preferably 😉

      I’m so excited to be a body attack chick, but also so scared! can’t imagine how different it is being the one on stage, eeek!

      looking forward to chats later, thanks so much for replying to my bombardment of emails hahha x

  2. Hi Kloe,

    Love the blog! Very impressive that you’ve just started – I really enjoyed the mix of topics you’ve written about, the layout and design is very nice and your photos are great too! If this is the beginning them I’m sure you’re going to go very well 🙂

    I’ll definitely be keeping up to date with your posts. And I think we have a lot in common as lovers of fitness, nutrition and chocolate!

    • Hi there Cat,

      Wow thanks so much for your beautiful, kind comments!
      Even though I’m new to the whole fitness blogging world, I’m so excited to be a part of it, and everyone I’ve chatted to so far has been so lovely!

      I will be sure to check out your blog as well 🙂

      have a great day,

      Kloe x

  3. Haha well they’re true – you’re welcome!

    Have you checked out the Healthy Living Blogs site? It’s a great community of bloggers, and you just need to send them an email to get involved (and your blog gets listed there too). It’s a great way to get out into the blogging world!

    Thanks! You too.

  4. Hey Kloe,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I’m glad to find another Aussie blog to read – and you’re from Sydney too!

    It seems like we have very similar interests – both loving healthy living and you’re a writer too! Don’t worry though, I am incredibly ambitious and enthusiastic and, personally, I think the best people are! 🙂

    I can’t wait to learn more about you – and keep reading your blog!

    • Oh I didn’t realise you were also from Sydney, even better/more exciting!

      Yep, I’m actually studying journalism at uni, but because I’m also so passionate about health and fitness I thought a blog would be an awesome outlet for that 🙂

      Have subscribed to your blog and looking forward to reading some great posts!


  5. Hi Kloe,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to spending some time poking around yours and catching up on everything…just added it to my bookmarks! I agree that its nice to find some more healthy living bloggers on this continent; they seem hard to come by! Keep in touch 🙂

  6. Hey Kloe! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Loving yours so far. I have a B.A. in journalism, so if you’d ever like to talk about anything news-writing or writing related, shoot me an email! Looking forward to reading more about you and your daily adventures!

    • hey,

      thanks so much for the lovely words!!
      oh wow, what a coincidence! what do you do as a journalist?
      I’m actually considering changing mid year to nutrition and dietetics, because I’m not sure it’s for me, but I’m giving it one more semester to Suss it out 🙂

      looking forward to following your blog!

  7. Finally got a chance to check out your blog after your message with such kind words on my blog. I’m in love with your page and love finding girls my age with a similar passion. Your posts are great- informational, inspiring, and helpful! Keep it up girl:)

    • thanks lovely lady!!

      looking forward to following your bloggie adventures x

      • No worries thanks for having a look. Yep its pretty hard going but well worth it. Oh and just seen your Almond coconut ball things OMG they look awesome do you reckon they would work as well with Peanut butter ???

      • running is definitely one of my passions so I’d love to do something like that to support a foundation or something!
        oh my god, those protein balls are to die for… and for sure; any nut butter will do! 🙂

  9. Hi Kloe! I immediately fell in love with the name of your blog and had to check it out! When I saw the design and the way you write, I was hooked! I thought I would nominate you for the liebster award and hope you enjoy answering the questions I posted 🙂 keep up the good work! Anoushé xoxo

    • Hey, aw thank you so so much! I’m so happy you enjoy my blog – It’s like my little baby 😉

    • hey girl!

      so sorry for the late reply (slacker! guilty..) BUT my blog design was done by Maren Kennedy over at, she’s a blogger but does designing as well – does an absolutely brilliant job, AND sooo affordable! because trust me, that was a factor for me too being a poor uni student 😉 check her out, she’s got a section on her blog dedicated to examples and info about it. xx

  11. Hi Kloe,
    My name is Kloe too! I have to laugh. I love to bake/cook and I am also a huge running fan! I ran my first race last year and I am training for my next one (10k) right now. There is nothing better then the feeling after a long run! I hope you stop by my blog and we can stay in contact. Happy baking and good luck with the running. God bless!
