Not just a Pretty Face

Bahrain Confidential shares a conversation with Victoria’s Secret Angel, Romee Strijd.

Hi Romee! Valentine’s is just around the corner; how do you plan to spend it?

I’ll have breakfast somewhere cozy with my boyfriend after we do our workout together. Later that day, we’ll have a nice little dinner and maybe see a movie afterwards.

What is your idea of a perfect date? What would make it extra special?

I just love having good conversations with people I love. Combine that with good food and there’s nothing more I could wish for!

What are the qualities you look for in a person? How do you know if he/she is a BFF material?

I look for someone who’s serious and knows what they want out of life. A good hearted, loving person who I can laugh with.

How do you spoil yourself? What lingerie do you plan to treat yourself to?

I love to spoil myself with a good massage at a spa. I’m also planning on treating myself to some Victoria’s Secret lingerie from the new Dream Angels collection—the lace is really pretty and delicate for Valentine’s Day.

The energy of a person that is content with his/herself is beautiful and attractive.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given?

Live a well-balanced lifestyle. Try to eat as healthy as possible (doesn’t mean you can never have a burger or chocolate now and then), try to fit in some time for working out, drink lots of water, enjoy a good night sleep (try to aim for 7-8 hours minimum) and most importantly, do whatever makes you happy. The energy of a person that is content with his/herself is beautiful and attractive.

What beauty items can you not live without?

I can’t live without my Victoria’s Secret Lip Matte in “Adored.” I’m obsessed with lip gloss & lipsticks.

What is your favorite piece from the new VS Dream Angels collection? 

I love the Chantilly Lace High-neck Teddy because you can wear it as both a top and as underwear and really make it a part of your outfit.

You’ve been to Dubai recently, how did you find the experience? Any plans on visiting Bahrain?

I had an amazing time in Dubai. It’s a beautiful destination with so many fun things to do. The weather is great, the people are nice, the food is good. I loved it! I do not have any plans for visiting Bahrain soon, but I would definitely be open to going.
