Such Different Vixens - Jess Ainscough

Get your bliss notes


Such Different Vixens

Seriously, where the bloody hell do I start?

How can you sum up someone so beautiful, so generous, so humble and so vibrant in a single paragraph? I'm not sure whether I can...

Australia's very own Wellness Warrior needs no introduction, but what you do need to know is this - behind her wildly successful blog, her freakish capacity to create blog articles, eBooks and online programs prolifically, and her million dollar smile - is a girl just like you and me.

What I love MOST about Jess is that she's the epitome of the 'girl-next-door'. She sometimes makes weird noises when she laughs. She's obsessed with karaoke, and she truly has a heart of gold. Oh, and she's like, the best role model you could ever imagine. Ever.

I adore her. Let's learn more.


Sum up your mission in one sentence.

To tell my story and have it heal the world.

Can you share with us one of your most vulnerable moments (and in hindsight, what made it so beautiful?).

The first time I told ALL of my story to a room full of people was probably the most vulnerable I've been. I was standing in front of 300 people and I told my story - all of it - the raw, real, stuff that would be easy to be ashamed of. It was beautiful because it brought me closer to every single person in that room. It made me relatable, and it also gave them permission to be completely honest and authentic with their own stories.

What turns you on?

Raw desserts, Ed Sheeran singing covers of other people's songs, green smoothies, massive salads packed with all sorts of excitement, speaking to crowds of people, Channing Tatum in Magic Mike :), spending every Thursday with my boy (Thursday Fun-Day), cuddles with my pug, daydreaming about the future.

What makes your blood boil?

Animal cruelty and factory farming. I can't comprehend how human beings can 1) knowingly harm our beautiful innocent animal friends and 2) turn a blind eye to the horror that is the factory farming system. It's a system that needs to be made illegal!!

How do you define confidence?

Complete self acceptance - where self-love oozes through your presence.

When was the last time you experienced pure, unadulterated joy? Can you give us the juicy details?

I aim to experience pure joy on a daily basis - it's become a priority for me. And I try to experience joy in little things like walking on the beach, taking in the view from Mount Coolum, playing with my dog, dancing in my bedroom, eating amazing food etc. But one special moment that sticks out recently was from a weekend at Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat with our gorgeous friends Rachel and Melissa. We had a session called Body Play, which was a choreograph-free dance-inspired class where we had to move our bodies in whatever form we wanted to. The session was judgement-free and so much fun! And seeing the joy on the other girls' faces heightened my experience even more.

What makes you feel most ENLIVENED?

Spending time in nature, marvelling at just how freaking magnificent it is. I start every day with a hike up Mount Coolum - instant enlivening!


Combining my passions with a business I love makes me feel… Liberated, powerful, constantly inspired, fulfilled and always supported.

I am MOST grateful for… My incredible support team - my parents, my boyfriend Tallon and my pug dog Edie.

I secretly wish I could… Sing!

To me, the words 'Such Different Skies' mean... The ability to see things differently. To be comfortable with a sudden switch in perception, and to be open to the possibility that things are completely different to what they seem.
