Glam Girl: Natalia

We are excited to introduce 30 year old Natalia Simmons, a Southern Californian girl who is currently living in Challans, France with her husband and two sons.  Natalia’s blog, Ma Nouvelle Mode which translates to My New Style, delivers a daily dose of fashion inspiration, beauty tips and travel destinations.  Read on to discover more about what inspires Natalia, her favourite beauty tips and how living abroad has changed the way she views fashion…

What motivated you to start your blog?
I had two kids and they had been sick on and off for a month. I felt like I hadn’t left the house in forever and couldn’t remember the last time I had put makeup on or done my hair. I had seen blogs around the internet and knew I wanted to do it. A way to motivate myself to get ready & care about what I looked like. To look good for myself and my husband and feel good about myself. To find myself in a way.

 

How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
I live in France so I love seeing European fashion trends, specially before they hit America. Paris is obviously always fashionable and it’s so fun to be so close. French women have a certain class about them, an effortless chic that just resonates. It might be more of an attitude than fashion or just a very beautiful blend. Either way, I love it.

 

Who are your style icons?
SJP or should I say Carrie Bradshaw. I honestly wasn’t a huge Sex in the City fan when it was on, but love the way Carrie Bradshaw was fearless with fashion. I love that she wore what she wanted when she wanted and there wasn’t a ‘time’ on things. When I am in Southern California and I want to dress up for the day I always get the questions “wow, you look nice, where are you going?” or “You look fancy, hot date?” How about “no hot date, I just felt like dressing up today!!”

Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
I’m gonna go with the obvious here, the basic LBD. You can dress it up and down, casual or fancy. You can rock it for many occasions, you really can’t go wrong. Strolling around town? Through on some flats & a sweater. Night out with the girls? Grab the stilettos and a statement necklace! Work lunch? Throw on a blazer & grab your clutch. It just works.

 

What items do you always carry in your handbag?
Lotion. I travel a lot on my hands get so dry! It’s always great to have on hand. I also have a little container of bobby pins just in case and my lipsticks. You never know when a girl just needs a hot red lip!

What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
This is going to sound cliche but confidence is the best beauty trick out there. I have heard over and over again “That red lip looks great on you, but I couldn’t pull it off.” Or “I love that style, but it would’nt work for me.” But why? Why not you? There are no rules, you can rock whatever you want! And when you throw on that bright red lipstick walk around like you own it girl and everyone in the room will believe that you do.

 

Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
This is actually a tough one, I’m pretty much an open book! My readers might not know that I speak French but not fluently – just conversationally. I absolutely adore living in France but am excited to eventually settle in America. I would love to be a French teacher when we return but alas I have to master the language first. I don’t know, like I said, I’m an open book!

 

What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I’m not very daring in the mixing prints department. I usually match things in some way. I admire women that do and love seeing it pulled off well. My tips would be to not add too many patterns or colors and although they don’t have to match, there are ways to make sure they go well together.

When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
I would say getting ready is a huge one. I don’t always do a full face of makeup or do my hair but when I’m feeling extra tired and like the bags under my eyes are extra dark, I do my makeup. There’s nothing like passing a mirror and thinking “oh phew, I look decent.” instead of “Yikes! how did I let myself go out like this!!” I also love a good mani/pedi which I desperately need right now!

 

How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
I love to start with coffee. But I have two kids that most days I am trying to get off to school on time so it usually starts with them. When they’re off, I love to sit, relax and have my cup of coffee. If my husband is around, I love to hang around with him and chat. Sounds super boring writing it out, but we enjoy it!

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
I actually started this blog of mine when I applied for a Japanese publisher. They required a blog as part of their application submission. I whipped up Moiology over night. I never intended to inspire people with this blog, I created it for selfish reason. Now, it’s turned out to be something completely different than what I intended.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST MOMENT OF BLOGGING SO FAR?
During New York Fashion Week, I had one of those moments where everything felt so surreal. Like, I was living my dream. It was liberating to say the least… Aside from that, the friendships that I’ve created through blogging have been also amazing.

WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS?
Mira Duma and Olivia Palermo.

TELL US… WHAT IS SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Ohhh… There are a lot of things people don’t know about me. It’s almost impossible to put your entire self on the blog. Well, here is one… I have three jobs I maintain and juggle. I’m an analyst, marketing director and blogger.

NAME ONE GO-TO PIECE IN YOUR CLOSET AND WHY?
My black zipper pants from Zara. They’re like Jeggings – ridiculously comfortable and they goes with nearly everything.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
It was actually my friends and family that prompted me to start PPF. They were tired of texting me asking for fashion and beauty advice and they thought it would be a lot easier for them if I had a site that gave them all the information. It began as a great creative outlet and hobby for me to enjoy while my kids were in school. I had no idea it would grow into a full-time business, but I feel very fortunate to be able to do something that I love.
 
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST MOMENT OF BLOGGING SO FAR?
Getting selected for the Almay campaign with Lucky Magazine was an incredible experience. Having the chance to do the photo shoot and film videos was such an amazing moment and one I will always be grateful for.
 
WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS?
Grace Kelly, Olivia Palermo and Diane Kruger
 
WHAT ITEMS DO YOU ALWAYS CARRY IN YOUR HANDBAG?
A compact, hand sanitizing wipes, chapstick, mini tape measure, nail file, business cards, my phone and a bag of almonds for snacking on the go.

WHAT IS THE BEST BEAUTY TRICK YOU’VE EVER LEARNED?
How to apply lipstick to make it stay put – start with a layer of concealer, then apply lip liner over your entire lips (and filling in) in the same color as your lipstick, blot once, apply a light dusting of translucent powder. Then apply the lipstick with a lip brush. It will last for HOURS!
 
TELL US, WHAT IS SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Music is my first love – I was actually on Season 2 of American Idol.
 
NAME ONE GO-TO PIECE IN YOUR CLOSET AND WHY?
A tailored blazer – I have over 15 of them in varying styles and colors! They are classic and perfect for adding polish to casual basics or giving structure to an otherwise flowy ensemble.
