Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

How will you achieve your dream job? Hmmm I'm still trying to figure that out, I will let you know when my eureka moment arrives.
What is the best advice you have been given? Everything is temporary. That has really helped me out whenever I've been in stressful situations as it makes you realise that nothing is forever.

What is the one thing you would change about yourself or the world? I wish I didn't worry and stress about things so much. I am learning to be more patient and let things run their intended course. Very hard. I wish the world was a kinder a place, especially as I'm a mum.
