Backstage: Vik - Dogs, Cleaning & Skin Care

Sugar & Spice Photography is more than just a job for Vik. She is hardworking, fun and ridiculously talented. Read on to hear about Vik's GIANT heart and for some fun facts (about her fur babies, how cleaning is her "pick-me-up"), and more!


Favorite part about being a part of the Sugar and Spice Photography team:

I love hearing (all of the) beautiful women's life stories! And when they see their pictures on the screen, and they smile because they look and feel beautiful - it melts my heart!!! I believe there's no such thing as an ugly person - everybody is beautiful in their own way - everybody has a beautiful angle.


Vik's favorite Bible verse: I John 4:4


You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

Favorite makeup product or best tip?

Forget makeup - Focus on skin care * skin care *skin care (and sun block)!!! I believe there is no "one size fits all" (makeup or skin care program). Everybody has unique skin, and if you take good care of your skin - no matter what you use on your face, your makeup will be flawless.



What advice would you give your teenage self?

Listen to nobody (who discourages you) and just follow your dreams; because when I was younger, so many people tried to talk me out of doing hair and doing makeup and saying: "there's no career in that". You know: I wish I didn't listen to them because I didn't start my career until later on when I got tired of people telling me what to do. So if you have a dream - listen to nobody (who discourages you). Work hard for it and go after it!


What do you do to turn things around when you're having a bad day?

I turn on music! I blast it like there's no tomorrow and I get cleaning. When I clean something - make something pretty and organized - it just flips my whole day upside down, and I just feel happy. That's my little outlet.



EARLY BIRD or NIGHT OWL?

Neither! I'm a middle kind've day person - I love sleeping in and I hate staying up late.


MOST USED EMOJI:

Poop (lots of giggles followed this confession)


PETS:

My husband and I have 4 fur babies: 2 cats and 2 dogs - My hubby is a cat person and I'm dog person, so we had to compromise!
