TULLY LOU is a sports luxe, street wear brand that Spa it Girl loves.
Tully Humphrey, founded TULLY LOU in 2013 as a way to motivate and empower woman to get up and live healthier, happier lives, so naturally Spa it Girl wanted to find out this inspiring #GIRLBOSS own healthy, happy lifestyle tips.
Here is our exclusive Spa it Girl #GIRLBOSS interview with TULLY LOU:
Can you tell us a bit about yourself? I am the designer/founder of sports luxe/street wear company TULLY LOU.
I have always had a passion for fashion, health/wellness and wanted to create a brand that would inspire and empower woman to live the best lives possible.
I am also a yoga teacher. I love giving back and really enjoy teaching yoga, I live a pretty busy life so I really love teaching – it keeps me grounded.
What Inspired you to start TULLY LOU? I wanted to create an active wear brand that would inspire woman to look good and feel good especially when working out!
When I created TL in 2013 there was a huge niche in the market for fashion forward sportswear, everyone was wearing black baggy tees + pants to yoga or the gym. It doesn’t really make you feel good about yourself. I wanted to create a brand that really inspired you and made you happy.
Was it a dream come true seeing your TULLY LOU, United Collection on the catwalk at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Australia? Yes, it really was, ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of being a designer + having a label on the runway as an active wear designer.
I never ever thought that this dream would actually come true so I am very happy + proud. Words actually can’t even describe how I felt on the day.
Healthy body || Healthy Mind || Healthy spirit 🙏🏾 at my happy place @fightfitboxing 👊🏾 come join us this Sunday @ 1030am for another one of our YOXING events. Boxing//HIIT//Yoga with a bunch of legends. Goodie bags provided and guaranteed a killer sweat sesh. 👊🏾 boxing with @fitept HIIT with @brigxx Purchase tickets via our website link in my bio x TL
How do you keep Healthy & Fit? I make sure I work out every day and even if it’s a walk, just to move my body. I will always try and have a balanced died of 80/20. 80% of the time I will eat really well and then the 20% I will eat what I feel like.
I usually don’t craze fast food or sugary foods but it might be eating out and having foods that I wouldn’t usually eat + not feeling guilty or obsessing over it.
What Makes You Happy? Spending time with my family and friends.
Right now what is your TULLY LOU look? At the moment I am loving the Maverick leggings + Taipans crop – Oh and the blazers sweater because its damn cold in Melbourne at the moment.
How do you stay motivated to workout? I will always schedule in my workouts at the start of the week for motivation and make gym session appointments with friends so you don’t bail. I also lay my acitvewear out next to my bed at night so in the morning I don’t have to think.
What Activewear Shoes are you wearing right now? At the moment I am obsessing over my new NIKE VAPOURS.
What’s your Skincare Routine? I am a made Sunday Riley fan – Clay cleanser, followed by the GOOD genes + daily moisturiser all by SUNDAY RILEY, at night I use the same however replace with the LUNA NIGHT oil. – ITS LIFE CHANGING!
Do you have a Favourite Spa/s that we should know about? Aurora spa if you are in Melbourne. I also LOVE Five Elements in Ubud bali… it’s a little more holistic + Ive had some of the most amzing treatments there.

❤️Self-Care Sunday is the NEW Sunday Funday. I have reached a point in my life where I recognise the need to take a holistic approach to taking care of myself. I’ve started a new little project one that prioritises self-care. Today was a long book reading session ..curled up on the sofa with my blanket all whilst my hair was drinking up my fav @labangbody hydrating oil treatment. Now I am ready for a huge week ahead!! Use my code TULLYLOU at checkout for a cheeky 15% discount off the entire @labangbody range. #hydrating #nourishing #labangbody #tlad
Do you work all the time? do you ever have any down time? I do work out a lot. I just love the feeling and it makes me a better person to be honest. I also do make sure though I have down time.
I never used to do this, if my body is feeling sore or I am tired or maybe just not feeling it I will take it easy or have some well needed rest and focus on maybe having a bath, reading a book or mediating
What’s Your Favourite Quote? “STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS… YOU CAN ONLY CONTROL ONE LIFE, AND THAT IS YOURS!”
Why did you want TULLY LOU to give back from every TULLY LOU sale to the Charity i=Change? Everyone deserves an opportunity for a better life – for health, education and human rights, I want to help empower women to live their best lives – so they can flourish and make an impact on their communities and the world + if we can help make this happen by donating from TL we are stoked!
Does anyone else get called The bag lady?!? 😂 This is what my friends call me! I’m always carting around my workout gear, laptop and general crap with me. Recently I found this Sammy Tote gym bag + what I love is that you can throw it in the washing machine easily + it keeps it smelling super fresh.. for a gym bag this is a must!#coretraineraustralia #coretraineraustralia #gymbag #tlcollab
What do you never leave home without? Phone, Diary and a protein bar oh and wallet!
As a #GIRLBOSS do you have any tips for girls starting out? Always follow your heart it always knows the answer every time. Take a risk and just do it.
What’s next for TULLY LOU ? Continue to Expanding internationally + hopefully bringing out some accessories mid to end next year 2018.
