Lovely to meet you!.. I’m Natasha, and I’m an award-winning lifestyle blogger and creative coach, supporting and empowering people to achieve their personal and professional goals.
I’m passionate about helping people to build, develop or transform their creative life or business, designing something that’s more joyous and fruitful than they could have ever imagined. If you’d like to learn more about how I can support you in reaching your personal or professional goals, then please step this way.
My love for creativity runs deep, and my most vivid childhood memories involve drawing and painting. When I look at my old artwork, I can recall where I was and how I felt when I created it, and in some cases, I can even remember the music that was playing! My appetite for the arts led me to study Fine Art and the History of Art at Oxford Brookes University. It was a lovely period of my life, and I enjoyed having the space to explore my creative practice while being surrounded by like-minded folk.
Since graduating, I’ve spent 20 years’ developing teams of people in the arts, retail and education sectors. My previous positions have included Head of Operations and Visitor Services at Modern Art Oxford and Team Leader of Ladies Personal Shopping at Selfridges, London. I’ve worked with and supported hundreds of extraordinary people, enabling me to hone my craft and develop a unique and valuable set of coaching and mentoring skills. You’ll find further details on my LinkedIn page.
I created Candy Pop in 2008 as a place to share photographs of my life, my home and the things I found along the way. The blog grew, and in 2015 I was able to leave my position of Alumni Relations Manager at the University of Oxford to work freelance.
Sharing my work online has enabled me to collaborate with brands, speak at conferences and events, write for magazines and in 2016, I won a UK blog award for the most innovative content. If you’re interested in reading more, please visit my press page. Nowadays I share my thoughts on personal and professional development, self-care, creativity and simple living.
When I’m not coaching my amazing clients, developing my creativity, reading or writing I love exploring beautiful places, getting lost in galleries and museums, meeting new people and catching up with friends over tea and homemade cake.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a truly inspiring day!
