She believes that great health is a choice, to be gorgeous is your birthright and there is always room for some tipsy time and fun. In this partnership with Nihiwatu, Simone is supported by a team of internationally renowned experts including Nihiwatu’s Executive Chef, Benjamin McRae, renowned Balinese raw food chef, Chef Made Runatha, Horse Whisperer, Carol Sharpe, yoga instructor, Mary Tilson, and the Nihiwatu water sports team.
