It’s not hard to believe that Alessandra Ambrosio has the picture perfect life. The Brazilian stunner is one of the world’s highest paid models, is the mother of two gorgeous children and is a dedicated philanthropist as the National Ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Now, the 33-year-old beauty has ventured into the world of fashion design with her boho-chic ále by Alessandra collection, a line that was inspired by her own life and style, sold exclusively at retailer Planet Blue. Here, the international supermodel turned designer takes Haute Living through a day in her impossibly beautiful, wonderfully family-focused life.

7:30 a.m. I wake up, brush my teeth and then kiss my fiancé and two kids good morning before heading down to my kitchen for some time to myself before everyone wakes up. I like to check my emails and go over what’s new for ále by Alessandra while the house is still quiet.

8:00 a.m. I wake up my kids and we have a healthy breakfast of eggs, English muffins, fruit and coffee (for me) before getting my daughter ready for school.

9:00 a.m. I drop my daughter, Anja, off at school and my son, Noah, off at his playgroup. I hate being away from them, but it gives me a few hours to get some work done.

9:30 a.m. Off to Pilates class, where I meet a friend and get in some girl time. It’s important to break a sweat every day, and I love the way Pilates makes me feel long and lean.

10:45 a.m. I stop into a café after class and pick up a cup of coffee, then head home to shower and get dressed for the day. While at home, I check back into my emails and make a few phone calls to my agent and publicist to go over upcoming jobs and events.

12:30 p.m. I pick Noah up at his playgroup, and then we take a trip to Planet Blue to check on ále by Alessandra (and maybe sneak in a little shopping for myself). We then grab a quick lunch before continuing on with our day.

1:45 p.m. Noah and I go to his music class. I love watching him explore and interact with the other kids. It’s crazy how fast kids grow!

3:00 p.m. I pick Anja up from school and then take her and Noah for an afterschool treat at Pinkberry followed by some playtime at the park. I try to encourage my kids to be outside as much as possible and to just enjoy being young and carefree.

5:00 p.m. I get the kids showered and cleaned up before preparing dinner for them. Tonight I’m making a chicken and veggie stir-fry with brown rice. I always pick at the kids’ meals even though I’ll be going for my own dinner in a bit.

7:00 p.m. I pop in a movie for the kids (they’re obsessed with Frozen, so it’s usually that lately) while I get myself cleaned up and ready for my own dinner out.

8:30 p.m. I tuck the kids into bed, kiss them goodnight and then make sure the sitter is all set before heading out with my fiancé to meet some friends.

9:00 p.m. We have dinner at Katsuya in L.A. I have a serious weakness for Japanese food, and Katsuya is one of my favorites!

11:00 p.m. I head home for the night. I have to head to bed early because I have an early call time in the morning!
