Alex De Fina
Founder of Bikini Fit, from the land down under, I've been in Hong Kong for almost 2 years. My background is as a strength and conditioning coach and sports nutritionist, which culminated working with many professional athletes in various disciplines.
I have genuinely "found my passion", which isn't in the previous testosterone fuelled domains I am used to. I have never felt more fulfilment than working with women who have been misled by industry hype and seen the positive affects of a healthy lifestyle nurture them into more confident, happy and ambitious people.
I’m an Interior Designer, Blogger & Mama to my gorgeous daughter Sophia. I am passionate about culture (as well as patisserie!). My loves are design, travel, catching up with girlfriends and precious family time on the weekends.
Born in Hong Kong, raised in Toronto, and educated in Montreal, Roseanne is now back in her hometown and taking it by storm.

When she’s not scouting thethe latest beauty buzz, she’s out shopping, eating, sipping on G&Ts and dancing with her girlfriends - in that order.
Fenella is a British expat who hails from Hertfordshire (think Darcy and Lizzy!). She moved to HK in 2011, following in the footsteps of her older sister… A week’s holiday in Honkers was enough to persuade her to leave London town and embark on a Far Eastern adventure! She's an English teacher by day and blogger, music addict and Spanish student by night.
You can call me Avey, I’m equal parts Spanish, Filipino, Thai and Danish. Currently working as the Marketing & Events Manager for Maximal Concepts overseeing all events, partnerships & promotions for award winning venues such as Blue Butcher, Brickhouse, Fish & Meat, Flawless and Mott 32. I’ve previously worked in the luxury industry as the Marketing & Communications Manager at Quintessentially Lifestyle.

Natalie is originally from London but decided in January 2009 that it was time for a change. Cue a girl who’s never been to Asia (let alone Hong Kong) rocking up at Chek Lap Kok with two suitcases, two phone numbers of vague acquaintances and a growing sense of dread… but it turns out that all that worry was for nothing! A city where bars never close, taxis are cheaper than tomatoes and it’s perfectly possible to never have to iron or wash-up ever again… it transpires that Hong Kong is her spiritual home! She's a lawyer by day and tries to fit in blogging, writing and snapping away on her camera the rest of the time. She love gin & tonics, very high heels, filling her passport with new stamps, and anything and everything fashion-related.
Scarlett is a pug-loving Yorkshire girl, who has recently discovered her Hong Kong addiction. She has an irrational obsession with flamingos, festivals and floral garlands… and firmly believes that no party is complete without a pineapple.
