As the face of our new Bonds Swim range, we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to sit down with Miranda Kerr and chat all things summer. From fitness to SnapChat filters, the model-mum revealed what gets her through the beach season. Check out our interview with her, below:
What’s your favourite piece from the Bonds Swim range?
I’m obsessed with the black one-piece swimsuit. it’s so flattering and can suit anyone.
What is it about Bonds that keeps you coming back to be a brand ambassador?
Bonds is such an iconic Australian brand, it’s fun and full of energy. It feels really good to work with Bonds again.
With our Aussie summer just around the corner, can you tell us what you love most about summer?
I love having BBQs, swimming in the ocean, being with friends and family, and the warm summer nights. I’ve had so many wonderful memories of summertime in Australia. The beaches in Australia are so beautiful and clean.
You’re based in Malibu now – are there similarities between the beach lifestyle there to the one we have in Australia?
That’s probably the main reason I moved to Malibu - so that Flynn could enjoy this lifestyle. The weather is great, there’s lots of space, there’s the beach, we have a pool and a vegetable patch.
What’s your favourite Aussie beach to visit when you are home and why?
Because I work a lot in Sydney the beach I love to visit is Camp Cove, it’s such an iconic beach – it feels very special. Balmoral is also great as a swimming beach, and Valla beach in Coffs Harbour.
What three items we would find in your beach bag?
A bottle of water, my phone and my energising citrus mist from Kora.
What does your weekly training regime look like?
I do pilates 4 times a week, yoga 2-3 times and I’ll get on the elliptical machine or bicycle before or after. I’m also really obsessed with the Infrared Sauna, its rays deeply detoxify your body.
Do you have any daily health/fitness rituals that you swear by?
Every day is different for me, but I try to meditate daily. In the morning, before Flynn comes and gets me I’ll sit in bed, meditate and say a little morning prayer inwardly. I’ll say thank you for my health, my son and his health, thank you for my family, the roof over our heads. Being grateful for the simple things really sets the tone for the rest of the day.
How do you stay healthy and energised when you’re travelling?
I use the flight to catch up on sleep. Sleep is really important, as it’s when your body is best equipped to repair and restore itself.
What songs are on your summer playlist?
Planez by Jeremih
Down in the DM by Yogotti
Adore You by Miley Cyrus
Simple Things by Miguel
Panda by Desiinger
Some would call you the queen of Snapchat, do have some tips on how to take the perfect snap?
I love incorporating the little bitmojis, it’s a fun way to express a bit of your personality – they’re hilarious.
What’s your favourite filter is and why?
I love the flower crown. I have so much fun trying all the filters with Flynn and then we’ll save them to memories and laugh so much about them later. Often I don’t even use the camera on my phone I just use Snapchat.
Congrats on your engagement! Have you made any wedding plans yet?
We are working on it but we haven’t confirmed anything yet. We’re both very happy and excited.
