Natalia Busmachiu, or Natalia Bush as she is formally known, is a 5’ 9” international model, based in Italy and originally from Moldova. She has travelled the world for modeling campaigns including modeling for Nike. Natalia has been modeling from her early teens and was selected to represent The Republic of Moldova at the “Miss Tourism International” contest in Shenzen, China.
Natalia grew up in a family of 5 with a father that is a pilot and mother that is a doctor. After she graduated with a degree in economics, she moved to Milan, Italy, where she decided to focus on her modeling career. She speaks Romanian and Russian natively and is fluent in English and Italian. She also speaks Spanish at a basic conversational level. “My hobbies include basketball, which I played in High School,” she said. Natalia also loves to swim, ride horses, and dance to trance and house music. Her modeling has taken her far and wide including to places such as Florida (USA), Portugal, Barcelona, Berlin, Istanbul, Hong Kong, and Doha (Qatar). Although quite friendly and approachable, Natalia is determined, ambitious, and believes in hard work as necessary to achieve one’s life goals.
MODE: How do you manage with your hectic lifestyle to look good, stay in shape and still get on with other aspects of your life?
Natalia: Looking good and fashionable is a style of life; no matter what job you do every woman should care for herself. Looking good means to love yourself and treat yourself in the best way. Loving yourself first brings you more joy and peace, and your simple presence can make others happy.
MODE: What are your basic daily beauty routines?
Natalia: I try to take very good care of my skin and body. I use face masks and scrubs regularly. There are many things you can do even at home without necessarily having to go to the beauty salon. It’s also very important to remove makeup every day to allow the skin to refresh and breathe. Another important thing is that I rest well by getting my “8 hours of beauty sleep,” it definitely helps one to look good. A healthy lifestyle that includes sports is also a must for me.
MODE: Do you find that you have to exercise regularly to stay in shape or do you easily stay in shape without much effort?
Natalia: I go quite often to the gym not only to stay in shape, but because there I can vent all the negative stress that build up during the day. It helps me stay better psychological and of course physically.
I’m lucky to live in a beautiful country,
Italy, where the gastronomy is one of
the best in the world
MODE: Do you have to follow a strict diet or are you more flexible in how you eat? If you had to have a cheat meal what would it be?
Natalia: I’m addicted to the healthy lifestyle but I don’t follow any strict diets. I just eat healthily, respecting the time of meals (not eating after 6 pm). Important is not to exaggerate with quantities, and definitely do regular exercise by doing some sport activities. Don’t forget you are what you eat! I’m lucky to live in a beautiful country, Italy, where the gastronomy is one of the best in the world. My daily menu never misses fruits, vegetables, fish (2-3 times per week) and I drink a lot of water. My cheat meal is chocolates, that’s my weak point.
MODE: What is your favorite place to visit for a vacation?
Natalia: Well, I love traveling so every time I have possibility to travel I love to explore the city/country where I am. I believe that travel helps you in life, it opens your mind, you get more life experiences and it helps you grow. I love exotic places with hot weather and the seaside.
MODE: What plans do you have for your career for 2017 and beyond?
Natalia: I hope that next year is at least as good as 2016 from a professional and personal viewpoint because I have been quite satisfied with the way things have worked out. But of course, I tend always to want to improve and reach new higher achievements. I really hope and will do my best to realize all my future projects.
MODE: If you had to give some words of wisdom to MODE readers for success, happiness and following their dreams what would you say?
Natalia: Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning. Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble onto something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. If you really want to do something you will find a way. If you don’t you will find an excuse.
