She’s an Insta star, has a third book on the way and still has big plans. We met fit­ness blog­ging queen Alice

Look (UK) - - LOOK FIT! -

With 563k fol­low­ers, Alice Live­ing, AKA @Cleaneatin­gal­ice, is one of the new global am­bas­sadors for Tri­umph’s Tri­ac­tion sports bras. We spent the week with her in Ver­bier to get the goss on the life of a fit­ness blog­ger... What’s the se­cret of your suc­cess? ‘I think my per­sonal train­ing clients re­late to me be­cause I have em­pa­thy: I’ve hit rock bot­tom and I’ve come back from that and I’m to­tally hon­est about it on In­sta­gram.’ Do you feel un­der pres­sure to al­ways look good? ‘Yes, I would be a fraud if I said I didn’t. Com­par­ing my­self to oth­ers gives me that mo­ti­va­tion I need to con­tinue.’ What do you love about blog­ging? ‘I’ve pan­icked and thought my pho­tog­ra­phy is bad – I only use my iphone – but now I think it sets me apart.thebest­partofmy­blo­gisthat it’s au­then­tic and I choose the right projects for me. like, I love work­ing with tri­umph be­cause I ac­tu­ally wear (and rate) these sports bras.’ Does it all ever get a bit too much? ‘Yes, I’ll be hon­est. some­one trolled me last week and I mes­saged my man­ager and said: “I think I don’t want to do this any more.” I love what I do, but for ex­am­ple my boyfriend doesn’t love the con­stant photo-tak­ing. how­ever, it’s given me a won­der­ful balance.’
