Bella Thomas on what she's learnt to let go of and her daily rituals

Talent comes in many forms and the beautiful Bella has an innate calmness and self-awareness that comes through when she steps in front of the camera. The industry has realised that this model is out of the ordinary and her profile is steadily on the rise. Her personal style is fresh and balanced, as is her approach to daily life. We talk with Bella on her current experiences during these changing times.

Do you have any daily rituals that you follow?

Hot water in the morning, followed by a long walk listening to my morning playlist.  

What is the best and hardest thing about modelling?

The best thing is getting to work with and meet so many incredible people. The hardest part is the uncertainty of it all, I never really know how my weeks will look. I find it hard as I am a hardcore planner haha. 

What is something outside of your current medium that you are interested in learning more about?

I’ve actually just started studying Holistic Nutrition. I am loving it! 

What are some personal strategies you use to bring yourself back to a state of happiness?

A long walk outside will always bring me back to a good state of mind, as well as some good food. 

What is your favourite meal to cook for yourself or friends?

Curry!

If you had no constraints what would you do?

Live in a different country every year. 

What wellness rituals do you swear by?

Cleaning my room, boring but extremely effective for my mental health. 

What is your favourite time of the day and why?

Mornings are my favourite time of the day. I love them because I like to think of each new day as a fresh beginning, a new story.  

What words of advice would you offer to your younger self?

Stop comparing!! Only you get to be you :)

What’s the best purchase you ever made?

This very plain humble white tee that I found at my local vintage shop. I have never worn anything more, she’s been through a lot with me. Somehow I’ve managed to not stain her either!!! Miracle. 

What values do you admire most in the women in your life?

I admire their drive and passion for the things they do. 

What calms your nerves?

Usually a glass of wine, or I will listen to some music that hypes me up if I’m anxious.

What have you learnt to let go of?

I have a quiet nature and for far too long I hated this about myself, I’d try to fight it by being more extroverted. So I guess I’ve learnt to let go of trying to impress others at the expense of losing who I am.
