The sound of a baby in the midst of teething, the sleepless nights, and the reaching-for-anything-around-me-for-comfort is something that all moms encounter at some point. That’s why we were so excited to sit down with the one part of the rising stars of Doddle & Co, Nicki Radzely to learn more about how she manages a thriving business and a busy household.
Doddle & Co was created by a vision that things can be easier. All of their tools and tricks we rely on as parents can be approached differently. Soothing babies and parents, our goal has been simple from the start: To bring you products that make the day-to-day realities of parenting easier. That’s right. That’s it. (say hello to some of our favorite pacifiers and teethers on the market!)
Do you have any beauty shortcuts that mom’s need to know about?
Eyelashes and Aquaphor. If you always have eyelashes on, it’s like built-in mascara but better and Aquaphor is always on hand, so add it to your lips and get your day started!
Everyone has that ritual that makes them feel confident and pulled together, what’s yours?
Fragrance. I could be wearing or doing absolutely anything, from a big meeting to a quick grocery shop and fragrance always makes me feel like my best self. I tend to wear Hermès as my daily go-to. But I love Byredo, Gypsy Water too! The list goes on and I use fragrance like a fashion accessory.
Do you have any first-time mom advice?
Everyone always say, “it goes so fast” but my advice would be that when you have a baby, remember that a year from that beautiful day, your baby will most likely be walking, talking and eating on their first birthday, so when people say to enjoy it, just realize that it is impossible not to.
What beauty product can you not live without?
Pore minimizer, a good highlighter and radiant skin by Goldfaden MD!
How do you find balance?
I don’t. I think it’s all a myth. I just find the joy in the imbalance. I laugh almost about everything and I barely take anything so seriously that a joke can’t be made. This is all impossible, so just roll with it.. nothing is or should be so perfect that you can’t find lightness in it.
How do you de-stress?
I clean my house, cook a big meal for my family and I light candles after everyone is to bed. But really my secret is music. It’s my medicine. All of this in one day and you pretty much have a rebuilt, re-invigorated, Nicki.
