Skinnista of the Month: Model Stassi Schroeder Talks Beauty & Skinny Tips

Lauryn Evarts talks to Dose of Divine writer, Stassi Schroeder about modeling tips and tricks.

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.

Lauryn Evarts talks to Dose of Divine writer, Stassi Schroeder about modeling tips and tricks.

+ 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!

  1. Lauryn I wanted to ask you how you felt about cutting carbs in the evening? I see that Stassi says she does that right before a shoot. Do you think that might help me shed my last few lbs of belly fat? Or is that just good to do when you need to look good for an event?

    P.S. I made the Kale Chips from your past post! So yummy!! Great substitute for potato chips. Do you know if you still get the same nutrients from the Kale even though its baked?


    1. Cutting carbs after 5 pm is a great way to drop pounds fast. My trainer recommends doing it a week before I am in a bikini!

      I am so happy you liked the kale chips ; ). Yay! You’ll lose a lot of the Vitamin C, but not the Vitamin K! So it’s a fabulous alternative to potato chips and they’re the perfect substitution when you have a craving for salty foods!

      Thanks for reading Stefana!


  2. I seriously love, love, love your blog! I wish i could make mine even 1/2 as perfect as yours!

    newest stalker! 😉 ….


  3. I like this. Everything she has to say is very true and very realistic. I’ve been hearing about juicing everywhere and I used to juice when I was younger but I need to give this a try…I’ve heard juice fasting a few times a year is so super beneficial to everything and juicing seriously clears the skin and brightens it!

  4. Hi, Haven´t been here in a while 🙁 The cleanse was amazing 🙂 . . . . . Lots of people asked what a hack it that I dranka dnthee got so curies. Now alot of swedish people know wabout your Blog so be prepered 😉
    Tanks again for a great Blog and I LOVE your Article about differentskinny girl, models etc.
    Kepp up, Love E

  5. Lauryn, What do you think about cutting carbs in the evening?
    I have an event in 5 days and WOULD LOVE your suggestions to lose a few lbs.
    I’ll definitely be doing daily cardio, but I know a true cleanse is just not for me.
    Love your blog, please help!! 🙂

    1. For an event, cut carbs after 5 pm, lots of water, protein for breakfast, and no drinking! Also, instead of cardio, try Pilates or strength training- it will lean you up! xox

  6. Love the interview. I am a big advocate for not stuffing yourself with food, juice makes me feel cleaner. She is right, my skin in clearer when I am jucing and eating right. Good read. 🙂

  7. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I think I
    would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very wide for me.
    I am taking a look ahead for your next post, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

  8. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had
    been doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact
    that I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this matter here on your site.
