Welcome back to the pages of LW Mag. What’s been happening in the life of Natasha since we last featured you in 2016?
I started varsity doing a BBA Marketing Management, still working as an au pair, been doing shoots to make some money and starting to save to teach English overseas.
How do you feel your modeling career has grown since then?
I have worked on my body and I have added some amazing images to my portfolio.
What does it mean to you to be a featured LW Babe for the second time?
It means that I have worked hard to make sure I look good enough to be featured for the second time. I love everyone involved with LW Mag, they are all awesome people and the shoot is always tons of fun!
We took a different and much sexier approach with this shoot. What are your thoughts on the final product, and what goes through your mind when you are in front of the camera?
Anyone who knows me, knows that I love the more sexy and racier shots, which is why I enjoyed the shoot so much. Being in front of the camera, doing my thing, makes me feel alive, I get to really express who I am.
In which scene did you feel the sexiest?
I felt the sexiest in the bedroom shots on the bed and on the dressing table. I’m very confident in myself and body, so I love flaunting.
What is your idea of sex appeal?
My idea of sex appeal isn’t about looking ‘easy’ or being a piece of meat. Women are sexy, curves are sexy and a woman’s body is something of a work of art. So for me, sex appeal is showcasing the parts of me I was given and the parts of me I have worked hard to get. No one knows what it took to get me there, especially self-esteem wise. So I am proud of how confident I am. Sex appeal is about being you!
What are you hoping is going through the minds of our readers while they are enjoying your feature?
I want the readers to see, male or female, that I am myself and I want them to see the passion and drive in my eyes. Some might judge, some might love it, but at the end of it all, I’m doing what makes me happy.
They say if you have its flaunt it. What do you like flaunting the most?
Love that statement! I would say I love flaunting my eyes and my bum… I have worked hard for my bum!
What do you like to do for fun?
I love reading, soaking up the sun, having a Gin and Dry Lemon and being with my amazing friends and boyfriend.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you?
As much as it may not seem like it, I really feel I have a low self esteem. Which is why I value modeling so much as it has really helped to build my confidence.
What has been one of the most daring things you have done, and would you do it again?
The most daring thing I’ve done would have to be Micro-lighting over the Indian Ocean a few years ago. I am not an adrenaline junkie at all, so that was quite scary! But so exhilarating!
If you could live our any career opportunity for one day, what would it be?
I would love to be a Victoria’s Secret model for a day. I idolise those women and everyone thinks it’s so easy and anyone can do it, but it takes blood, sweat and tears to be at the top.
What are you looking forward to experiencing in 2018?
I am looking forward to traveling around the world with my boyfriend once we are qualified teachers. I am passionate about travel. Hence the ‘Wanderlust’ tattoo.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Sensual: Blue bedroom eyes.
Intimidating: Sexy, confident woman.
Love: My boyfriend.
Eye catching: Long blonde hair, blue eyes, full lips.
