Kim Kardashian Reveals What It’s Like to Be Kim Kardashian
Kardashian’s book, Selfish, will be released on May 5, 2015. In the book, Kardashian shares tons of selfies. Now, Kardashian is sharing something else, her daily routine.
In the May issue of Harper Bazaar, Kardashian wrote a diary-style article detailing 24 hours in her life. Check out some of the highlights below.
6:00 A.M. I usually wake up really early, around six o’ clock. 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. I check the monitor, and then I kind of squint on 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.
6:15 A.M. 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 live in a gated community with lots of horse trails, so I run on those, or on the treadmill in our home gym on the other side of the house. My workouts are usually about an hour, maybe an hour and 15 minutes total, but I like to mix them up. Running takes me about 35 minutes on the trails, and then I’ll come back and work my abs or legs. 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. I don’t need anything fast. When I go to Barry’s Bootcamp, they put on dance music or house music sometimes, and that slows me down.
8:00 A.M. I used to work out at a gym more often, but now I stay at home because I want to be there when my daughter wakes up, which is around eight. It’s my favorite time of the day with her, so I don’t want to miss it. I try to have breakfast really quick, before she’s up, but I’m rushing and always checking the monitor. I’ll usually have scrambled eggs or oatmeal, or a protein shake with fruit. Kanye loves to eat really healthy and is always on different diets. He has a chef who comes in the morning and cooks breakfast for both of us and gets our meal plans together for the day. We just started seeing a nutritionist who changes our diet every 10 days.
12:00 P.M. When we’re not filming I’ll have one or two meetings a day, usually starting at noon. Once a week we have a design meeting with Sears, and that’s always three hours. We’ll talk about anything from fabrics to fit. Or we have meetings for other projects, like this book with Rizzoli. I started taking pictures years ago, around 2006, and I kept them, all organized on my computer in folders. We didn’t call them selfies back then. I had no idea what I was saving, just memories, really. This book is filled with so many good memories, and they all tell the story of the year when they were taken. It took a minute to figure out exactly what order to put them in. First we had it separated by glam selfies, selfies with friends, selfies with sisters, and sexy selfies, but then we decided that it made more sense to do it chronologically. I don’t have a selfie stick; I just take photos with my iPhone.
2:00 P.M. 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. I’m in London right now, and Kendall’s in Milan, so we’re almost in the same time zone. We’re texting each other every second. And when the whole family wakes up, it’s like a huge group chat every morning to see what everyone’s doing.
9:00 P.M. Once the baby’s asleep, I like 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.
Notable takeaways: Kanye West “is always on different diets,” Kardashian likes to watch “murder shows” and doesn’t have a selfie stick.
