15-year-old ‘self-made millionaire’ shares VERY grown-up morning routine

A 15-year-old self-made millionaire has given fans a behind-the-scenes look at her lavish — and incredibly adult — morning routine, which includes daily Starbucks, a makeup artist to help her get ready, and business calls. 

Isabella ‘Bella’ Barrett, a child beauty queen from Rhode Island, shot to fame on the TLC reality series Toddlers & Tiaras and was just six years old when she became one of the youngest self-made millionaires in the U.S.

‘What I love about being a millionaire is that I’m able to get up and travel anywhere I want in the world — and [the] friends I get to meet,’ she says on a new episode of the Truly series Bling Life. ‘It’s opened many opportunities for me.’

The teen, who turns 16 next month, was still a young child when she parlayed her reality TV fame into a number of lucrative business ventures, including Glitzy Girl, the jewelry line she founded with her mother, Susanna Barrett. 

After stepping away from the pageant circuit, she spent her tween years modeling for brands such as Toys ‘R’ Us, Bergdorf Goodman, and American Girl.

Barrett now runs her own fashion label, House of Barretti, a line of sportswear and sophisticated two-piece suits for teens and young adults. Her net worth is estimated to be $2 million. 

Like most entrepreneurs, her day starts bright and early at 6 a.m. — but she isn’t rolling out of bed to get ready for school. 

‘The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check my Instagram, TikTok, my emails, and all of my orders because it’s what drives my business,’ she explains. 

Barrett, whose net worth is estimated to be $2 million, has a combined total of 105,400 followers on Instagram and TikTok

Barrett has a combined total of 105,400 followers on Instagram and TikTok, and by 7 a.m. she is checking in with her fans and producing social media content. 

She tries to post something new every morning, whether it be footage of herself getting ready or a day-in-the-life video documenting her life as a young entrepreneur. 

‘Being successful at a young age also means I have a really young audience,’ she says of building her social media presence. 

Barrett has already been up for two hours when she gets her morning Starbucks at 8 a.m. — but she is still a teen at heart when it comes to her order. 

Instead of a boring coffee or espresso, her mother hand delivers her a Frappuccino topped with whipped cream.

‘Do you have my bagel?’ Barrett asks while stirring her drink. 

‘I will go get it for you right now,’ her mom says before leaving the room. 

Barrett explains that her Starbucks breakfast is the thing she looks forward to most after she wakes up.  

‘I would not describe myself as a morning person, but as soon as I get that Starbucks, I am the happiest person you’ll ever meet,’ she says. 

A half-hour later, it’s time to do her makeup, which she gets professionally done. 

The teen’s makeup artist, Anna, comes to her house to apply a full face, including lashes, smoky eyes, and lip gloss.

Barrett is dressed casually in a black tube top and white sweatpants featuring the House of Barretti logo, but before Anna leaves, she hands her a fashionable bomber jacket to throw on before her business meeting at 9:30 a.m.  

‘This morning I have a meeting with a very important collaboration that I’m working on, Kilogear x House of Barretti,’ she explains. ‘I’m so excited for everyone to see it.’

Barrett is barefoot and in sweatpants when she takes the Zoom call, but her bomber jacket and makeup make it look like she is all done up. 

They discuss logo colors during the meeting, which is briefly captured at the end of the episode.

One of the executives tells Barrett that the collaboration is really ‘gonna come alive for people.’

‘No fashion line has ever seen anything like it,’ he insists. ‘I think this is going to be received incredibly well by the market.’

According to Barrett, the Zoom call went ‘absolutely amazing.’  

‘We went over the final logo, and I’m actually gonna be being sent a spreadsheet to go over all the colors and placement of the logo,’ she says. 

In a previous episode of Bling Life, Barrett documented her House of Barretti runway show that was held during New York Fashion Week. 

She gushed that ‘being a self-made millionaire’ has already opened ‘so many doors’ for her, though she insisted that she is a normal teen when she’s not working.  

‘Right now, I feel like my goal is just to keep doing what I’m doing because I’m having a really great time,’ she said. ‘As long as I’m having fun, that’s all that matters.’
