kai conversations with la-based influencer, callie foster of @thelacouple

this week’s kai conversation features callie foster from the la couple, who is a truly amazing, inspirational, fabulous female - she’s one of those rare magical unicorns who was born and raised in los angeles and has never left; she still lives in la with her brazilian husband leo, and their beautiful son luca, who is currently 2 1/2 years old and the light of their lives. aside from being an incredible mom and wife, callie is also a very talented tv producer, avid animal advocate, a vegan and a yoga addict. 

 

callie first discovered kai at a spa in san diego, where she received a heavenly massage where they incorporated the kai body glow during the treatment. after that experience, she was instantly hooked. she immediately bought some kai at the spa’s gift shop on the way out; the scent transported her straight to the plumeria blossoms of hawaii, and kai has been her signature, go-to fragrance ever since.

 

callie has been a wonderful devotee and supporter of kai for several years, and we are so fortunate to call her a dear friend! she is one of those women (and supermoms) who does it all with the biggest smile and most positive “can do” attitude, and we continue to be greatly inspired by reading her story and seeing how she & her husband leo continue to spread love, positive energy and cheer to their community through the incredibly beautiful experiences & genuine life-touching moments that they share on their instagram & blog! enjoy this glimpse into callie’s bright & beautiful world.


xo,

how did you first discover kai? 

the first time i discovered kai was at a spa in san diego during the boat races. after an amazing massage at the resort i was staying at, they used the kai body glow, and i was instantly hooked. i had to find out what it was, and i bought some in the gift shop immediately. the scent transported me straight to the plumeria blossoms of hawaii, and it's been my signature scent ever since.

how do you embody kai’s “breath*life*flow” lifestyle?

for me, kai’s "breath*life*flow" lifestyle means embracing a relaxed, gentle island life and going with the flow, just like a soft ocean breeze.

how did you start your career? and how did you end up with your current role?

i began my career as a stunt girl in my early twenties. realizing the physical toll it could take, i shifted to behind-the-scenes work and became a television producer for game shows, which evolved into producing docu-series and documentaries. right before the pandemic, i noticed that social media influence was becoming more important than traditional tv ratings. so, my husband and i started a lifestyle blog about los angeles, leveraging my media skills. now, we're full-time content creators!

what’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

my dad always said, "it's better to be disliked for who you are than liked for someone you're not."

do you have a mantra you live by?

i'm big on manifesting, so it's either "everything is happening for me, not to me," or "i am exactly where i am supposed to be."

what’s your beauty secret or must-have beauty product?

as a mom in my thirties, i keep things natural and simple. let your hair air dry as often as possible, wear sunblock, and choose pure, clean products and of course the kai body glow!

go-to lipstick color?

color: flashing rosé - sheer nude pink

what color nail polish are you wearing right now?

opi nail polish - suzi without a paddle

who is your role model?

i admire so many incredible women, both past and present. figures like ruth bader ginsburg and maya angelou have paved the way for so many. currently, i look up to women like blake lively and jennifer lawrence, not just for their talent but for their commitment to making a positive impact in the world. blake’s advocacy for child protection and jennifer’s work with represent.us are truly inspiring.

how would you describe your personal style?

my style is all over the place: a mix of athleisure, beachy clean girl aesthetic, and a hint of adam sandler.

what do you love most about where you live? any secret spots you love to go to?

i was born and raised in los angeles in the valley. i love being surrounded by mountains and nature, with malibu just twenty minutes away for beachy hikes.

describe your perfect day.

my perfect day starts with warm water, lemon, salt, and ginger. i wash my face, do some stretching or yoga, then enjoy a breakfast of coffee and smoothies while taking my vitamins. after a morning walk or jog with my toddler, we head to the beach or a nature walk. lunch follows, and then some shopping. in the afternoon, i read or journal while my toddler naps. later, we go for another nature walk or visit the park, make dinner, and end the day with a bonfire at the beach.
