Please tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! I’m Vicky, esthetician, recovering product junkie and founder of bogl Supportive Skincare. I’m married to my best friend for almost 15 years and mom to our funny 9 year old. We have two fur kitties that keep us on our toes!
What do you love most about being a mom?
I love watching Nash discover things for the first time. He has such a love for nature and even though he would rather play Minecraft sometimes, when he’s in nature, I’m always in awe of how aware he is of his surroundings. More so than I was at that age. It’s fun to watch!
Let's be real, motherhood isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. What aspect of motherhood challenges you to grow into your highest self?
Being a mom has taught me so much. I’ve had to learn patience and how to guide, especially in ways I wasn’t taught. There’s been a learning curve for sure! There are days I wonder if I’m even doing a decent job. It really is the toughest job in the world!
Becoming a mom, you grow into a new version of yourself, physically, mentally, and emotionally. How has being a mom shaped you into your present self?
It’s helped me learn that I HAVE to take time for myself. When I start to slack on my own well-being, everyone suffers. I believe it also shows him that it’s ok to take that time, where I was not taught those skills growing up.
As a mom, some days can be a struggle. How do you reset when you feel overwhelmed, or find a moment of bliss in the chaos?
I go for a walk. Sometimes I listen to a book or music, but mostly I just enjoy the nature around me. It really helps me to really feel my body and reset.
What's your favorite spot in San Diego for a delicious beverage?
What kind of beverage are we talking about? Hahaha! If we are talking adult beverages, I really like this brewery in Sorrento Valley called Gravity Heights. The food, beers and atmosphere are great! For coffee, my favorite place is Forum in Clairemont. I love their matcha (Captcha) or BB Code with house banana milk! It’s delish!
