Every time I think of India Hicks, I think of that Elsie De Wolfe quote, the one that you may have run across once or twice on Instagram that says, "I am going to make everything around me beautiful-that will be my life." That is exactly what India Hicks, her fragrances, gifts, accessories, style, and most importantly herself represents... so much beauty.  It is not always easy to express concepts like, the essence of relaxed yet luxurious island style, through digital images or social media,  but a quick browse around the India Hicks website and peek into any of her videos and you'll see that is exactly what she has succeeded in doing.

I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet India twice! And yes, she is so stunning and stylish, has so many fascinating and worldly, and of course Royal stories (having been a bridesmaid of Princess Diana) that she explains are so much a part of the inspiration behind her lifestyle brand and the design of her products which includes jewelry, bags, accessories, and beauty products (we can't wait for you to check them out!).  India is also so down-to-earth cool and hysterically funny. Both times, she had rooms full of people thoroughly enjoying themselves and laughing. India is also very accessible and caring. It is therefore no surprise that she is growing her successful direct sales business through building relationships with 600 style ambassadors. She also gives back in many ways, one way is creating a special series which shares inspirational stories about people leading impactful lives called, Extraordinary Lives. I am still pinching myself that India has included me and my experience recovering from a stroke on her list!

We are so grateful to India for taking a moment during this busy time of year to share with us, and become our newest Ms Fit!

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU BUSY THESE DAYS?

Being in partnership with 600 extraordinary women who have joined hands with me in an exciting opportunity, together we are building a direct sales business with a fresh and modern take.

WHAT ARE YOU LOVING IN FITNESS AND FASHION RIGHT NOW?

Yoga pants, terrible isn't it? The men in our lives are appalled; they want us to dress like Grace Kelly and we wear yoga pants. However, I am not into yoga, took a one-on-one the other day to remind myself how much this is not for me. I’m a runner, I need to be pounding that pavement or pink sand.
