Designing a healthy, balanced life

There is nothing I love more than helping someone realize how corrupt our food system is and them making great changes in their own life because of it.”

Robert Piper: What inspires you in life? Kristin Cavallari: Helping people have a better, healthier life through food. There is nothing I love more than helping someone realize how corrupt our food system is and them making great changes in their own life because of it. I love seeing someone else’s health improve. Also, my family inspires me, because they push me to be the best version of myself that I can be, and spirituality, because it brings more love into your life. RP: How do you stay healthy? KC: I don’t eat any toxic chemicals, and I eat organic as often as possible. I also work out four to five times a week. I try to always be in touch with my emotions so that I’m mentally clear as well. I don’t let myself get worn out. I always listen to my body and take care of it if I’m run-down. RP: How do you find balance in your life? KC: I’m lucky because I can make my own hours, doing my shoe and jewelry lines. I work on those when the kids are napping or after they’ve gone to bed. It can be hard when I have to travel, though. I hate being away even for a day. But I’m happiest when I’m working and have my own things going on, so it ultimately makes me a better mother and wife. RP: You’re doing a lot of stuff in the fashion industry? KC: I am! My shoe line, Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry, is for the woman that wants to be on trend without spending a fortune. The collection for fall is all about boots and booties. My favorite is the thigh-high boot, because it’s such a hot shoe for the season and can be worn with almost anything. We just did a presentation at New York Fashion Week, which was a dream come true. I’ve been to Fashion Week as a spectator before, but to be part of it was surreal. I still can’t believe I’m able to call this work. I’m also launching a jewelry line, Emerald Duv, on October 2, with Planet Blue. It’s an affordable line with everything under a hundred dollars. The pieces are simple while still being creative and unique. RP: Are you involved in any charities? KC: My husband, Jay Cutler, has a charity called “Jay Cutler Foundation.” We help children with type 1 diabetes. Kristin Cavallari is a fashion designer, television personality, wife, and mother.
