Embracing the little things with Rocky Barnes

The bright side of fitness, fashion, & parenthood.

We got the chance to have a quick chat with the ever vibrant Rocky Barnes. Check out our Q&A with Rocky as she shares her experience on balancing motherhood, modelling & her label The Bright Side –all during a pandemic.

As a busy working Mum, what are some ways you like to take time out for yourself?

It's so hard as a mom to find time for yourself. Now that things are slowly opening back up I have been doing a weekly girls night! And I always add an extra long foot massage when I get my nails done!

Hope do you balance starting up your business The Bright Side, your social media/blog and your family?

Live/work balance is always something I can improve on. Making sure we carve out time for family time is a too priority. And now more than ever I make sure to ask for help and make sure I have a solid team to help me on track! It takes a village!

What are you listening to right now?

DOWN by Bank, Express Yourself by NWA, One by One by Diplo, Hold On by Justin Bieber.

You recently renovated your Californian home, all the while living between LA and NY. How was that?

A home renovation during a pandemic is not something I would recommend haha. But we are now near the end and it feels so good to see the fruits of our labour. We no longer ever need to leave our house haha. My fav part of the new house is the pool & my closet!

What are you working on right now?

Now that the house is done we have started renovating the pool house. The work is never ending when you buy a house. Also currently working on Bright Side 2022!

With so much going on in the word right now what keeps you motivated?

Jones is very motivating to me! He makes me want to be the best version of myself and to be a strong example for him. After this last year I have also been finding joy in the little things. There is so much to be grateful for and this past year only made that clearer.

You have travelled all over the world over the years, what have been your most favourite places to visit?

It's hard to pick just one favourite spot! Top of my list would be Morocco, Italy, and Mexico!

You have always had the most beautiful skin —we can tell you really take care of it! What are 3 beauty products you can't live without?

I'm a firm believer that good skin starts on the inside! I fond my skin always looks better when I cut out dairy and sugar. In terms of products, I have very dry skin so I tend to prefer oil based products. I love Caudalie oil based face wash, Grown Alchemist Grapefruit Exfoliator, and Sonya Dakar Organic Omega Oil!
