Phoebe Tonkin

What is your name?
Phoebe Tonkin

What is your star sign?

What is your current state of mind?
Excited and passionate

When and where are you happiest?
When I’m in the ocean, when I have talked to, or recently seen my family, when I’m eating good organic food with friends, and when I’m relaxing in a bath with a good book.

What do you value most in your friends?
Loyalty and positivity; I am lucky to be surrounded by incredibly grateful, ambitious, talented and intelligent friends.

Which Living Person do you most admire?

My mum. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without her. She is so hardworking, so knowledgeable, and so inspiring.

What is your most treasured possession?
My photographs, my rose quartz crystal that I take everywhere, and jewelery that reminds me of different people and different periods in my life.

What do you do to make you smile?
I like dancing, not well, but it makes me smile. Whether it’s in a ballet class, or in my pajamas in my bedroom.

What do you do that keeps you healthy and fit?
I take regular Pilates classes, I box, I dance, I eat good fresh organic foods, and I follow Michael Polon’s advice on health and diet “Eat Food, not too much, and mostly plants”

Describe what you eat in a day?
I avoid dairy, red meat and processed sugar. I eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, quinoa, salmon, vegetable juices, super food smoothies, and of course chocolate. I eat dark chocolate everyday without fail.

Do you take any supplements?
I take b-12 because I don’t eat meat, I take chlorella, I take a probiotic and I take digestive enzymes with my meals. I don’t take any aspirin; instead my medicine cabinet is full of teas and homeopathic.

Do you have any natural beauty tips?
Coconut oil. I use it in my hair, on my body, sometimes on my face. In summer I buy aloe Vera leaves from Whole Foods, and use that if I get too much sun. I always attribute good skin to daily green juices, 3 liters of water, and 8 hours of sleep. I also use cold spoons. I keep in the freezer on my eyes in the morning if I’m feeling puffy, and sometimes I’ll rub lemon juice on my face as a toner.

What is your greatest extravagance?
Plane tickets, good quality produce (and organic wines) facials, and acupuncture.
