This Victoria's Secret Model’s Morning Routine in Nothing Short of Inspiring
We always expect the world’s top models to have productive, motivating, and active morning routines and Victoria's Secret model Bridget Malcolm has proved just that. The Western Australia-born, New York-based beauty uses her mornings to keep her centred for her busy days, which involve working for some of the world’s biggest global fashion brands and publications such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry, and H&M. From a sunrise meditation session, to multiple games of backgammon over a cup of black coffee with her husband, and then a workout—every morning replicates the next for Malcolm, who ensures her days start with routine, quality time with family, exercise, and moment for herself before her work day begins. Read on to be inspired by Malcolm’s A.M. habits.
6.30 a.m. Wake up, no alarm. I wish I could sleep in, but I have never had that gene.
6.35 a.m. Sit down at the end of my bed, turn on insight timer to 15 minutes and meditate. My days are so insane, this is my special time to prepare.
7.00 a.m. Play multiple games of backgammon with my husband, accompanied by black coffee. It is our favourite morning ritual.
8.00 a.m. I work out with either a run or ballet beautiful with my trainer.
9.00 a.m. I do my skincare routine—it consists of a vitamin C serum, a probiotic serum, moisturiser, and then sunblock. I then brush my hair and maybe straighten the ends if they need it.
9.15 a.m. Another cup of black coffee, followed by emails and checking of social media. I usually post around this time too.
9.30 a.m. I whip up a smoothie—currently I have been making one with banana, hemp seeds, almonds, cacao, and kale. It is so yum!
9.45 a.m. I am cranking my 80s playlist and running out the door! After this point anything can happen, but my mornings are always a nice routine, and that helps to keep me centered throughout the day.
