Hello, I’m Nadia and welcome to Natural Elements.
I started this blog many years ago when I decided to change my life. At first, it was just about exercising, dieting and healthy eating but I soon found myself writing about something which I find myself really passionate about…beauty.
I am a 28-year-old professional, living in London with my husband, four-year-old daughter and our Dalmatian, Spot. Growing up I was always a bit of a tomboy and never really had much interest in make-up or skincare until I reached the age of 21 and my hormones just went crazy and I tried everything in my power to hide my bad skin from the world.
I spent years playing with different brands and techniques, spending hundreds on different products but never did I really consider my health and how that was affecting my skin.
My journey to living a healthier lifestyle started when I became pregnant with my daughter, Molly and I experienced a few problems at the beginning of the pregnancy. The doctors warned me that I needed to change my lifestyle for both my benefit and Molly which is where Natural Elements started.
I wanted to document my journey not only for myself but for other people who were experiencing the same thing. I kind of got into the habit of updating this blog regularly and really wanted to keep it up once Molly was born. So on late nights when she was up or teething, I was on here, blogging away about health and make-up.
A little bit about myself and my little family, we love the outdoors and like to spend every weekend walking, climbing and exploring with the family. I like to cook from scratch every night and like to think my blog allows me to help others out there who may think there isn’t enough time to do so.
When I’m not walking Spot or taking care of Molly, I’m a PR manager for a law firm in the city. I took a good 2-year break from work when I had Molly and was very fortunate to be able to do so but when Molly started full-time nursery, I was keen to get back into work-life and found myself missing the challenges my job brings me.
I do work full time but try to upload to Natural Elements at least twice a week so if you haven’t heard from me in a while, it just means that life is a bit hectic but don’t fret as I will be back soon!
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
I love to hear from my readers,especially if you’ve been around since the beginning, so if you have any questions you can get in touch with me via my contact page and I’ll aim to get back to you as soon as possible.
I’ll look forward to hearing from you soon and I hope you enjoy Natural Elements.
