Sunny, happy and healthy are three words that easily apply to blonde and bubbly Victoria’s Secret Angels, and today 21st birthday girl, Romee Strijd. Ed Razek, Victoria’s Secret Chief Marketing Officer, sees it too, saying at her first casting for the annual fashion show, “I’ve never seen a picture of her where she wasn’t smiling…She has the best smile!” 

In the years since then, Strijd has steadily become a street-style icon, workout guru and green juice connoisseur – displaying her champion model-off-duty efforts on Instagram. From her pre-fashion-show sweat sessions, to her Soho matcha tea hits, here are 21 beauty and health Romee-approved Insta-tips to inspire you out of any potential of winter slump. Happy 21st birthday Romee!
