E! News TV presenter. Actress. Style icon. Producer.
Throw the fact that she is also a mother of two in to the equation and you’ve got yourself a real life superwoman…
Everyone, allow me to introduce you to the absolute babe that is Catt Sadler.
You would think that such an influential woman would be way too busy to even consider taking the time to do my interview; but in fact she was the complete opposite. She has a refreshingly approachable tone that makes you feel you could have known her for years and all our email exchanging just so easily flowed.
What I particularly admire about Catt is her incredibly down to earth nature, her infectious passion for life and uplifting wisdom that leaves me feeling inspired every time I have finished her snapchat story (possibly the most gripping snapchatter to date… @cattsadler. GO. FOLLOW.) Her daily ‘cattfirmations’ not only make so much sense but give us all the more reason to love the girl who works like a total boss but raises her family with endless love and compassion at the same time. To me, that’s the kinda empowering woman we all should aspire to become.
Oh, and another reason to love Catt? Her style is nothing other than F L A W L E S S. She posts daily outfit updates on her super addictive style blog ‘The Cattwalk’ where she flaunts her on point get ups that will no doubt leave you with a camera roll full of screenshots to lust over.
Living in LA, the home of all things health and my number 1 city to visit, I really couldn’t not ask Catt what it’s like to live in the city of dreams.
Hey Catt! Let’s start with LA life. What’s your favourite thing about living there?
Most people would say, the weather. And although that is without question one of the reasons I love living here in LA, it’s also about the relaxed lifestyle and eclectic culture. Because of the diverse population, there’s a fascinating array of people, restaurants, and experiences to be explored. The weather promotes an easy, chill vibe for sure. I never take it for granted.
You’ve just ran a half marathon – congratulations! How did you stay so motivated to train when you have such a busy working schedule?
I’m not a natural runner. There’s something very sexy to me about doing that which does not come easy. Training was challenging to say the least. What helped me stay motivated was that my brother AJ and I committed to running the race together. We’d share our progress on the MapMyRun app. When you share the adventure with someone you love, I find it keeps you more engaged and less likely to give up!
Define what ‘health’ means to you?
To me, health means a harmonious balance of mind, body, and spirit. It is important to nurture each aspect of the body as each is truly interconnected.
So I’m completely obsessed with your Snapchat and I see you love to dose up on kombucha… It’s not so common over here! What exactly is it and why is it so great?
I’m not an expert, even though I certainly consume quite a bit, but Kombucha is fermented tea. It’s a fizzy effervescent drink served cold. It is said to stimulate the immune system and also serve as a probiotic. For me, personally, it seems to act like a natural energy boost. I use it in place of coffee to give me an extra boost. Kombucha is packed with antioxidants too, so what’s not to love? They are several brands and different flavors on the market here. Among my favorites: ginger lemon and plum from Health-ade.
As a mother of two, your life must be pretty full on… What’s your favourite way to spend a little ‘me time’?
The truth is I work so much that my favorite time to spend down time is in fact with my kids. We are ALL so busy and our lives are incredibly chaotic. When there’s day without a single commitment on the agenda, I’m happy. If as a family we can sleep in, stay in our pajamas all day, and be lazy together I am genuinely happy.
Now for the foodie bit! Tell me about your typical day on a plate…
For breakfast, I’m usually already on the run. Generally I’ll have a latte first thing. By mid-morning I’ll have a fruit smoothie of some description. On the weekends I’m more likely to eat breakfast and will usually have some granola and mixed berries. Perhaps some avocado on toast.
Lunch is most often a salad. I like mixed greens, chickpeas, soba noodles, avocado, roasted brussel sprouts and seared tuna with a thai-lemon dressing. It’s of the “create your own” variety, but I like it!
Dinner is usually pretty straight-forward and clean. Salmon or white fish, a steamed vegetable, and more salad or a side of my favorite, rosemary potatoes.
I love to snack on potato chips (crisps) and hummus.
Quote you live by?
I love quotes and read daily affirmations, but I’m not sure there is a single quote I live by. One of my favorites right now is: Life isn’t happening to you. It is responding to you.
Love it! Thanks for chatting Catt, it’s been real.
