About Natalia

One day, a couple years ago, I was with a friend on a girls trip in London. I sat there on the hotel bed, watching her put on her makeup for the day. “That’s odd.” I thought. “We’re only just walking around town for the afternoon.” Then it hit me. It had been so long since I had done my makeup just to get ready for the day. Somehow I couldn’t remember the last time I got dressed just to get dressed in the morning. I only did that for special occasions. Style? Fashion? Those waved bye bye with baby number two.
And it wasn’t a good look.
I knew something had to change. I knew I couldn’t stay like this. I owed it to my husband to look half way decent. I owed it to my kids to have a mom that took care of herself and really, more than anything, I owed it to myself. To feel like a person. To feel confident in my own skin. To embrace my beauty and to feel great about myself. 
Ma Nouvelle Mode was born.
Ma Nouvelle Mode means “My new style” in French. My new style because when started, I wanted some kind of public accountability to get dressed in the morning. To make an effort with what I looked like. It worked! I no longer wear yoga pants everyday (although there are some glorious days), I do my makeup often, and prefer to be put together. Don’t get me wrong, my purpose in life is not to look beautiful or even to wear makeup everyday. But there are simples things we can do to boost our confidence and give us the strength to do each day as the super women that we are!
Now it’s your turn. 
I want you to embrace your true beauty. The way you were made. The specific things that make you YOU. I want to help inspire you to be a better wife, a better mom, and and overall a better version of yourself. Now, I’m not some kind of certified physiologist and I don’t have all the answers. But I do know that you are beautiful. You are worthy. You are special and YOU have something specific to offer the world that no one else can. 
Let’s get to it.
What you need to know about me: 
I’m a wife to the best man I know and who is the best thing to happen to me outside of my salvation. I have two beautiful {BIG} boys who are a little crazy but bring so much joy. I’m from Cali, my husband is from Nassau, Bahamas and we live most of the year in France. I love to do hair, be creative with makeup, travel, be with my family and encourage other women. However, my most important role is being a proud daughter of the King and it’s in Him where I find my life’s purpose.
Poke around! You can get to know me and my family here, some about our life in France here and even some travels I’ve taken. I am sharing my husband and mine’s love story in pieces. You can also find hair tutorials, beauty tips, and even some DIY skin care!
