Hi! I’m Natascha. Most days you can find me in Venice Beach with a friend, grabbing a beer and watching the sunset, on a hike with some pals, or home on my cozy couch, drumming up my next post. I am mostly known for being an esthetician in Venice, but that’s all about to change. Pretty soon you’ll know me as Natascha Darling. I love serving my readers by sharing my Favorite Things as well as talking about money and finance. The things I am most passionate about in life are great friendships, a cozy home, having lots of laughs and a good workout.
I’ve been a writer my entire life - ok for at least 30 years. I still have my first diary that I got as a gift when I was 8 years old and I have all of my journals from my years in high school and college. I majored in Communications and Journalism because writing came naturally to me - I love connecting with other people through story. I used to be very ashamed to tell my story but once I found a safe place, I began to unpack the shame I had carried around for my entire life. Let me tell you, that burden was heavy and when I finally let it go, I felt 30 pounds lighter. The courage it took to share my story gave me the confidence and self-esteem to create Natascha Darling. If you have been carrying a sack of shame on your back, please reach out to me, I’d love to connect.
I created this website to share those stories, hear your stories and, help us both find a path to serenity and happiness. I also created it to connect, have fun, and make our lives a little easier (check out my post on Hair Tips or my Fave Fitness Tools for more of that!).
I love hearing from readers. If you’ve stumbled upon my website, please let me know what topics you would like to read. Please comment if a particular post strikes a cord with you and please share if you know someone who can relate.
If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.
1. I am a dual citizen in America and Germany.
2. I’ve written a fiction novel called Above All The Lights and I’m (slowly) working on the sequel.
3. I was hired by the FBI to be a spy (I swear!).
4. I still wear my retainers from high school.
5. When I set a goal and make a plan I rarely fail.
