Ever wonder what it’s like to be Kim Kardashian for a day? The reality star detailed her life for 24 hours, start to finish, in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar — and we’re tired from just reading it!
According to her day-in-the-life diary, the E! star gets going early in the morning, around 6 a.m. “I sleep with my Blackberry, my iPhone, and the baby monitor next to my bed, and at first I can hardly see the screens because they're so bright and my room is so dark,” she told the magazine. “I check the monitor, and then I kind of squint one eye and look at e-mails. I don't respond to them right away; I scroll through. The first person I talk to is Kanye because he's right there next to me in bed. I'll say, ‘Do you want to go for a run?’ And he usually does. Or he won't because he has a workout, so we'll just talk about that, then kisses.”
Next, the mom to North West checks on her daughter. “My first real conversation of the day is with North, although I'm not getting a whole lot back from her yet. I like to check her room as soon as I wake up. Then I go for my run…I like to listen to music while I work out, but I don't need it to pump me up or get energized. It's weird — I’ll put my iPod on shuffle and listen to slow R&B songs or even classical music, which most people think is so bizarre.”
At around 8 a.m., after she hits the horse trails around her Calabasas home, Kardashian returns to be with her daughter when she wakes up. “It's my favorite time of the day with her, so I don't want to miss it,” she said. “I try to have breakfast really quick, before she's up, but I'm rushing and always checking the monitor.”
For breakfast, she’ll have “scrambled eggs or oatmeal, or a protein shake with fruit,” and since husband Kanye West is “always on different diets,” she defers to their chef, who “comes in the morning and cooks breakfast for both of us and gets our meal plans together for the day.”
By 9 a.m., Kardashian is in the shower and getting ready to face the world. Depending on her plans, she'll either have hair and makeup done at the house or do her own before poring over her vast wardrobe and getting dressed.
On days when her family is filming their show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the social media-savvy star starts filming around noon and finishes at 8 p.m. “We don't really get breaks because we have three crews and they switch to get their breaks,” she told the mag. “We break only if we eat, if we break at all.”
On other days, Kardashian eats lunch at around 1 p.m. — “fish and vegetables or chicken and vegetables” — and catches up with her family. “I can't live without talking to my family. I'm obsessed with them. We're on group chats every single day — well, all the girls, for sure…We're texting each other every second,” she explained of her mom Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie.
In the afternoon the star will have a snack, like a peanut butter pack or an iced tea, but she’s had to “train” herself to cut back. “I used to drink a ton of iced tea, but I've cut back. I had the craziest addiction to Equal — I’d put 10 Equals in every iced tea. My sister Kourtney would always say, ‘You can't have that much sweetener!’”
By 7 p.m. it’s time to eat dinner and relax. “I’m kind of a homebody, so I've been staying in a lot lately,” Kardashian said. “There's nothing I love more than getting to stay home all day and not get ready for anything, which is about half the week.”
After she puts Nori to bed around 9 p.m., Kardashian likes to “unwind by getting in bed and doing some work — I'll put on a robe and answer e-mails or go online. I don't watch a whole lot of TV or movies, but when I do it's typically murder shows or Dateline NBC. I love searching eBay; I sell shoes and clothes on eBay all the time, so I'll check my auctions and answer user questions. Or I'll pick different fabrics for our line, and send approvals.”
“I always put my hair up and use makeup wipes to wash my face off, and I apply facial oil or moisturizer before bed,” she said of ending her day. “I go to bed around 10, 11 at the latest. I always fall right to sleep. I'm usually so tired, I just pass out.”
