Lauren's Blog Loving - Natasha from The Science Informant

Welcome to the second part in the Lauren's Blog Loving series. I'm really excited to introduce you all to Natasha, a gorgeous and extremely clever girl! You're going to be seeing much more of her over the coming months as she becomes our science expert in my new series of articles - The Science Behind Beauty Project.

If you want to know more about science, written in a really clear and interesting way then check out her blog. Alternatively if there are any beauty products you want to know the science behind, just comment or email and Tash and I will endevour to find out the truth!

Natasha from The Science Informant




Hello! Please introduce yourself and your blog

 Hello to all! My name’s Natasha, I’m 25 and the author of my own little science blog: The Science Informant. Yes very geeky I know! The main idea is to chat about various topics in science that might be of interest to anyone, scientist or not.

That's so exciting! And also you'll be working as my science correspondant soon! When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging in September 2010. I had already started a science column in my university newspaper and was now editing this but thought it would be fun to have my own page! Also it meant I had more freedom in my writing: I could choose any topic I wanted and write it in a more fun style! And hopefully light a spark of interest in more people too!

What is your favourite feature on your blog/what posts are you most proud of?

Let’s see... I’m quite proud of my post of Molecular Gastronomy, which is about the science behind food and cooking. It covers so many different topics and seems to be quite in at the moment with cooking shows rampaging our TV screens! I really want to develop my “Quick Question” and “Myths Debunked” sections – I like the idea of having little tidbits of science that might amuse people.

Describe your style

Now that’s tough! I wouldn’t say I’m a girly girl but I’m definitely quite feminine. I love high heels, as Lauren will know! Day to day, I quite like balancing outfits, like a very feminine flouncy top with black jeans and killer studded heals. Evenings, I love dresses and would kill for Christina Hendrick’s wardrobe from Mad Men! So smart yet so sexy! Can I love both these looks?

Of course you can! What’s your favourite item of clothing 

At the moment probably a pair a pair of Kurt Geiger shoes I got for ½ price in the Christmas sale. They’re beautiful and devilishly high!

Drool... they're gorgeous! My favourite question now - What is your favourite high street shop and who is your favourite designer

 I think most of my friends and family will tell you I’m obsessed with All Saints! I’ve even had friends who never bought anything in there because everything they looked at in the shop apparently looked like it belonged to me! Hehe! I think I just really like that they play with shapes and textures a lot and they do a lot of grungy stuff alongside really beautiful dresses and more sophisticated things. They’re terrible at sizing through! I have a top that’s an 8 (which I certainly am not!) and I tried on a dress that was too small at a 16 (which I am not either!) so people find it very difficult buying me presents from there!

 Designer wise – now that’s a bit more difficult as I don’t actually own that much of it (sigh!). If I could wear Chanel I think that would have to be my favourite (staying true to my Parisian nature!) but I also love Kenzo - I have a beautiful bag I bought years ago!

Apart from blogging, what do you do?

Well I started a PhD in Anatomy and Embryology in October so that takes up most of my time! Apart from that I love socialising and being busy (my boyfriend says I don’t know how to relax!) and try to get some kind of sport fitted in if possible even if I’m rubbish (like the new Street Dance lessons I’m desperately trying to get to grips with)!

You are a clever girl! So when you're Dr Tash, what is your dream?

Well that all depends. Work related: probably becoming a science journalist like writing for New Scientist or having my own newspaper column. Personally: just to live a happy, long and enjoyable life! Truthfully, what more can you ask for?

Tell me a secret?

Um... a fashion related secret: I use to hate skinny jeans and refuse to wear them for years and years! Now I swear by them!
