Not only is model Stassi Schroeder incredibly beautiful, she’s intelligent too. She writes “Style Diaries by Stassi” for Beverly Hills housewife, Lisa Vanderpump’s online magazine Dose of Divine [ check her out under the fashion and style section ] & she’s super witty. She’s modeled for GQ magazine, Teeki bikinis, & was on the TV show The Amazing Race. We talked all about her rockin’ bod, her all-natural beauty tips, & how she prepares for a bikini shoot:
+ Describe yourself.
A fashion obsessed style writer who is passionate, quick-witted, overdramatic to a fault, driven, outspoken, with a hard outer shell that masks a seriously sensitive core [ a true cancer ]. Pretty much everyone who knows me calls me Princess Stassi [ which says a lot in itself, haha ], but I’m a true Southern girl with lots of southern hospitality.
+ Quick skinny trick?
I do juices every single day in addition to what I already eat, but when I have to look particularly lean, I cut out the solids and do juices & lots of water for a day. I like to sit in a sauna for a good length of time and sweat everything out. And let’s not forget a good spray tan!
+ If you had to do a bikini shoot in a week, how would you prepare?
No carbs after 5:00 PM for a week, lots of water and cleansing juices. I try to cut out alcohol as much as possible for that week, but of course splurge on a glass of red wine when it’s been a rough day. I also love the detox body wrap spa treatment at Burke Williams.
+ Weekly workout schedule?
I admit I don’t get enough exercise as I should as I’m working very late nights and working on my style column during the daytime. Needless to say, working out is often put on the back burner. I absolutely despise gyms, they feel so unnatural and tend to make me view exercise as a chore, when it should be enjoyed. I prefer hiking, walking my dog, swimming, anything outside.
+ Go-to healthy food?
Juices! I hated them in the beginning, & would force myself to drink them, but now I have gotten so used to them, that I actually enjoy it. I love mixing things like kale, spinach, beets, cucumber, green apples, lemon, & ginger. It gives me so much natural energy and is surprisingly filling. It also keeps my skin insanely clear.
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
Honestly, I just want to be healthy and look like the best version of myself.
+ Favorite beauty product?
Anything by Murad; I have almost the whole line of products! I’ve tried a thousand different facial cleansers, topical creams, or medications from my dermatologist, but my skin literally changed within a week when I started using Murad. I’m normally prone to break outs, but I have not had a single one in months after switching over to the Murad line.
+ Natural beauty remedy?
I love mixing olive oil & sugar as an exfoliator. It makes your skin feel so smooth and the oil is so hydrating and silkening.
+ Secret model tip?
Every person’s physical make up is different, so I don’t believe that there is one universal trick that works for everyone. In terms of diet, exercise, skincare; you have to find what works for you. Don’t get stuck in a rut with the same thing if you’re not 100 percent satisfied with your body or skin. Try new things, it’s the only way to discover what is truly right for your body.
+ Quick, easy recipe:
I’m unfortunately the worst cook ever. For a quick easy snack I always go to turkey and hummus. Oh, & lots of protein!
