The 20 “It Girls” in Wellness, Beauty, & Business You Need to Follow on Instagram

Inspired by our latest collection It Girl, we’re sharing a round up of 20 ladies in the health & wellness 🍓, beauty 💄, and business 💡 space who embody that magnetic It Girl energy and presence.

For us, an It Girl is someone who shows up in the world unapologetically as herself, embraces all sides of herself (even the daggy ones 🙆‍♀️), and embodies those positive qualities that inspire us to share our own unique spark with the world ✨. We're talkin' courage, joy, charisma, humour, kindness, warmth, sincerity and our all-time fave - goofiness 😁. 

Get ready for an onslaught of inspo babes! 

#1 @jshealth


Australia’s fave Holistic Nutritionist, Author and founder of JSHealth, Jessica Sepel is making big waves in the health and wellness space with her relatable body-talk and “Un-diet Method”. Jess teaches us to treat ourselves with kindness and eat food that makes us look and feel good, but also makes us totes happy 👌👌👌. 

Chuchka Pick for Jess:

For a gorge, but super busy, lady like Jess, we love our Koto Vegan Leather Tote in a luxe butterscotch caramel shade, which is super roomy and perfect for ladies on the go.

#2 @deliciouslyella


Our fave British wellness babe, Deliciously Ella is transforming the way Brits eat one delicious energy ball at a time. An advocate of plant-based living, you get loads of recipe inspo to sneak in more veggies and other healthy nosh in your life. Also a recent mumma, she’s all about uncomplicated recipes and simple real food, which is all kinds of refreshing in our busy modern world!

Chuchka Pick for Ella:

A new mumma and yogi who's all about that natural life we reckon Ella would love our Florina Cork Eco Yoga Mat boasting antimicrobial properties and free of toxic materials.

the skinny confidential

We love Lauren for being unashamedly herself, not being afraid to ask "silly" Qs, and her relentless hustle and pursuit of livin’ dah good life with “major realness” as she'd put it. Hosted by herself and hubbie Michael Bosstick, The Skinny Confidential podcast and blog covers all the important and fun things from beauty, wellness, fitness, entrepreneurship, and mindset with a mixed bag of interesting and inspiring guests. Plus lots of A-grade LOL-worthy banter between the duo 😆. You'll be hooked in no time! 

Chuchka Pick for Lauren:

Just sayin' this super babe knows how to rock a leopard print, so our Kalli Neoprene Tote (white external neoprene, with internal reversible leopard print) would certainly integrate in her wardrobe.

#6 @Petajean_


A millennial thought and business leader, Peta is on a mission to change the business landscape through conscious entrepreneurship and leadership via @theearthessco.

A recent mumma who's on the go, we think Peta would really rock our Neoprene Nappy Bag with a fun printed detachable strap, perfect for working mums with a full life.

Chuchka Pick for Lacy:

Lacy is all about the natural fibres and minimal look, so our pick for her is the Bekir Turkish Towel, made of luxurious 100% soft cotton - a beautiful throw for the couch or sun blanket to catch some Vitamin D outside.

Chuchka Pick for Hannah:

Always on the go - travelling, "gyming", dancing, speaking gigs - this babe needs our neoprene gym bag in Indie to fit all the things - and the tiger print adds a stylish edge that shows she means business.

#11 @rachlmansfield

rachel mansfield

Queen of healthy dessert creations / cookies / pancakes, and fellow nut butter fiend, be warned - hers is not an IG feed you want to skim on an empty stomach. You’ll be doing all the salivating and probably need to block out your next Sunday arvo for a leisurely baking sesh post this hefty dose of recipe inspo.

Chuchka Pick for Rachel:

As a new mumma Rachel could definitely use our Coco Neoprene Nappy Bag in Khaki with extra compartments to house all those bub essentials.

For this active duo, the Dani Neoprene Ladies Gym Bag is a no-brainer - the black & white monochrome palette with snakeskin will work perfectly with their sexy atheleisure looks.

#18 @sophiaamoruso

The original #girlboss, this badass lady reminds us it’s okay to be your eccentric, sometimes cray, self AND a serious businesswoman. Not to mention Sophia’s as stylish as they come. One to follow for a big dose of female empowerment and reminder that us ladies rule (the 🌏).  

Chuchka Pick for Sophia:

For a babe at the top of her game, there's no other than the eye catching Bees Knees Neoprene Tote from our Queen Bee collection. It's one way to make a statement.
