Celebrating Mom: Karolína Kurková
How the model and mom-of-two is making time for work, family, her #MasksForAll project and (most importantly) herself.
Cover up a face as famous as Karolína Kurková’s and people notice. In the midst of the pandemic, the model and actress has teamed up with children’s wear brand Billie Blooms to create a range of chic, sustainably made facemasks.
“We have adopted the 1-for-1 model and for every mask purchased, one will be donated through Feeding America’s food banks in Miami and New York – two places I’m proud to call home,” said Karolína on launching #MasksForAll. All this while running her wellness company, Gryph & IvyRose, and tending to her two sons, Tobin, 10, and Noah, 4, at home.
“…you just have to be patient with yourself and do your best, taking each day as it is…”.
It’s little surprise that in recent weeks, Karolína’s biggest challenge has been finding the right amount of time and attention for her family members. “Including my husband,” she says. “It’s hard to find time for each other to do something alone or have a space to ourselves. To move through it, I think you just have to be patient with yourself and do your best, taking each day as it is and being fluid.”
She also suggests, where possible, setting aside time for yourself. “I schedule an hour every other day where I get to work out to keep sane and mentally and physically healthy. With my boys, I try to balance my time between them and create activities that are educational, creative, and fun. I also get them involved with chores around the house more than ever.”
The foursome is spending much more time together (“which I’m so grateful for”) and Karolína is finding comfort in her rituals. “My matcha latte, singing and dancing to good music and doing some type of movement or exercise every day. I’ve learned to just be positive and organized with everything I need to do, and loosen up about the things that could be better or aren’t perfect.”
