BCB Celebrates Mom: Amy Astrowsky

By lindsay

BCB celebrates mom EVERY DAY, but in May we BLOW OUT the celebration for Mother’s Day each and every year.  If you haven’t already, check out our Mother’s Day Gift Guide!  It’s filled with some of the best products from mom and women owned businesses.  We’ll be introducing you to the  amazing women behind these brands throughout the month of May.  If you have a mom founder we should meet, send us an email at info@bumpclubandbeyond.com.

NAME: AMY ASTROWSKY

COMPANY: MOMSQUAD CLOTHING or on Instagram @momsquadclothing

KIDS (names/ages): AMANDA

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: LOS ANGELES

How did you start your business?

I am a fashion designer with over 20 years experience in the industry.  I am also a triathlete.  MOMSQUAD CLOTHING was born out of my frustration with the activewear market. I couldn’t find a clothing company to buy from that reflected my life and busy lifestyle at a price that made sense. I have designed activewear that fits great and shows off all the well earned curves motherhood,  without charging what the luxury/big box brands do.

What advice would you give to other moms looking to start a business?

Go with your intuition, create space in your day/life for self care so you don’t lose yourself as a mom and woman. Call on your MOMSQUAD for help/advice. If you ask, you will be blown away by how many people want to help you on your entrepreneurial path.

How do you balance mom life and work life?  Is there even such a thing?

I am still figuring it out, I look at it like this: my life is fluid……some days/weeks I am crazy busy……other days/weeks I can take time to breathe and just be. Balance to me is whatever I make it to be.

Favorite quote/Motto to live by?

I have so many, one of my favorites is: Work hard, play hard. My daughter and I truly do that:)

What is your theme song or karaoke song?

Ok, while no one wants to hear me sing, I love: I’m Too Sexy, from Right Said Fred

What are you hoping to do to celebrate Mother’s Day this year?  Anything on your wish list?

I am pretty simple, i want to be with my girl and have a fun day….turn off my phone and just be a mom.

How do you indulge for YOURSELF?

Time to myself is my indulgence, whether its a walk on the beach, or taking my fav SoulCycle class.

What is the best part about motherhood?

Getting to meet and learn from this amazing little person……my daughter is the funniest and smartest person i have ever meet.

Funniest thing your kid has ever said or done?

SO many!!  She is very physical, and does funny things that make me laugh every day.

First thing you will do when the pandemic is over?

Travel!

Is there anything else that you want the BCB Community to know about you?

That I am so happy to be here, and to share my passion with all of you! I am committed to making a quality product, that adds value to a mom’s life.
