How hot, right?!
Not only is she gorg, she’s a real go-getter. Natascha Elisa is a full-time blogger, model, & world traveler. Her lifestyle is simple: eat healthy, work out, & most importantly be positive!
Because no one likes Negative Nancy’s.
Positive Penny’s are so much cooler.
Anyway, meet Natascha…I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did:
+ Introduce yourself.
I’m also a travel addict, health food fanatic, sun chasing, palm tree-loving, happy, easy going girl.
+ Quick skinny trick?
Natascha Elisa: I don’t believe in getting skinny quick- I think any weight loss should be a healthy process. I’ve honestly never dieted, however, I was definitely brought up in a healthy household. I’ve been vegetarian by choice since I was ten years old & that’s definitely played a part in my healthy lifestyle.
I’ve learned a lot about nutrition & I make sure to include all the nutrients that I need in my diet daily. I also eat a lot veggies & drink a lot of water!
+ If you had to do a bikini shoot in a week, how would you prepare?
NE: Uh-oh…a bikini shoot in one week?!! I actually have a bikini shoot next week so I’m making sure that I walk or run everyday. In saying that, all of my eating & exercising habits are things that I genuinely enjoy & I think that’s really important.
If you’re enjoying your work out you’ll do it more often. You’ll also do it happily- & let’s face it, there’s nothing that prepares you better for a big day than positive energy.
So be positive! Confidence will show in the pictures & you’ll look good, if you feel good.
+ Weekly workout schedule?
NE: As I am often traveling I can’t maintain a regular schedule but I’m home right now & I’ve just started kickboxing ( which I absolutely love! ). So I’ve been doing that three times a week at the moment!
I also really enjoy yoga. I walk most days, whether it be walking with a purpose- to get to castings, get coffee, &/or groceries. I enjoy walking to get somewhere & I always take the stairs. I’m not really a gym girl but I love hiking & a beach run. I’d choose fresh air & scenery over a gym any day of the week.
+ Favorite go-to healthy food?
NE: Easy question! I love healthy food, bananas, raw nuts, energy balls, green smoothies, &/or oatmeal! These foods give me tons of energy while keeping me full in between meals…not to mention they’re all delicious!
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
NE: To feel good & to have energy! Again, when you feel good, you look good!
+ Favorite beauty product?
My favorite cosmetic product is ‘Radiant Touch Touche Éclat’ by Yves Saint Laurent. It’s the ultimate highlighter/quick fix magic stick!
+ Go-to natural beauty remedy?
NE: Coconut oil- I literally use it for everything. It’s an amazing hair mask, makeup remover, & moisturizer. A total one stop shop!
+ What’s in your purse?
NE: I actually don’t have a purse right now; if I head out at night I’ll just take my key, credit card, & phone. When I do need a bag, I carry a bottle of water, wallet, lip balm, & my portfolio- usually in a backpack!
+ Secret model tip for diet and health?
NE: Breakfast!! It’s so important & my absolute favourite meal of the day! Also eat healthy fats in your diet ( coconut & avocado are my daily fixes! ), regular balanced meals, & healthy snacks.
Be positive!! Happiness leads to healthiness & vice versa.

Long time, no talk!
And well, I hope you enjoy the abundance of photos because uhhh…there’s a lot.
I got way too excited.
Anyways here’s a little background: The whole event was planned by the amazing, Ali Grant, who runs the company Be Social PR. It was hosted Bailiwick in San Diego ( the most charming restaurant/bar ever! )- they provided oysters, champagne, & the cutest venue. We also had some of my favorite brands there: Suja ( my favorite fresh pressed juice ) which mixed well w/ cocktails & champs ; ), Child of Wild jewelry/skulls, and JNB jewelry.
And the best part? We had KALE flower arrangements- yes. Flowers + kale!!! Ahhh. All done by Nannell’s Flowers. DIE!
It was so fun to celebrate with all my friends & family- thank you to everyone that came to the event! If you were there, I hope you all had fun! Mwah!
P.S. A big TY to my friend, Chris Beaton for the most amazing playlist ever, xx.
My New Year’s resolution?
I meannnnn, instead of dreaming up a bunch of shit I hope for, I’d rather just be productive.
So I guess my resolution is to flourish.
Flourish in love, business, fitness, family, friends, health, Pixy, & life in general.
On that note, I hope you all take 2013 by the balls. Each & everyone of you deserves amazingness!
[ A staircase @ the Louvre ]
Why in the heck would you not take the stairs?! Granted, if you’re carrying a million groceries or injured, that’s understandable. But other than that, there’s absolutely no reason to take the escalator &/or elevator. When I was on vacation, I absolutely [ 100 pound luggage & all ] used the stairs. Since I was away from the gym, it was the perfect mini exercise. Plus everyone takes the easy route- the stairs are less crowded. Dr. Oz says this: “if there are less than three flights of stairs to get to your destination, take them. Walking a flight of stairs is one of the best exercises you can do. It builds muscle mass, since you’re fighting gravity, and it burns calories.“
It sounds petty/stupid, but it’s lazy using the elevator/escalator. Using the stairs improves circulation + reduces fat + helps you live longer. Check out the campaign: Take the Stairs for more reasons.
Move your body ; )! Stairs > escalator.
