About me

Hello and welcome to Natbee’s, a UK travel & lifestyle blog based in Aberdeen, Scotland! 

I am Anastasia, the founder of this space which started as a fun project back in 2007 to keep in touch with family and friends. I flew my nest and moved to England almost a decade ago to study for my Msc degrees, and then travelled around Europe until I settled down in Scotland to study for my PhD. I am passionate about #scicomm #WomeninSTEM and I even made a video with BBC Scotland discussing about the matter!

Since my early years I kept a journal where I documented my days. I would spent at least an hour daily writing down my thoughts and adventures and later on I would find a particular pleasure reading back these pages and reliving the moments. Up until today, these journals have been kept in my old room at my parents house and are being treasured as something valuable along with my old photo albums.

This blog is an extention of my childhood habit of journal writing, but with a modern twist! Here, I share about my life in Scotland, my personal style and my trips, and so far it seems people enjoy following me along this life adventure! Natbee’s gained popularity until it was nominated in the 2012 Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, the 2013 Company Magazine Blog Awards, got a spot in the Top 10 Scottish Blogs list and was also ranked No. 64 in the Top 100 Scotland Blogs List by FeedSpot! Aberdeen blogger, UK lifestyle & travel blog based in Aberdeen

Natbee’s has constantly evolved as my life was evolving, travelling around places, moving around countries and meeting new people. With new voices and new content covering anything from travel to life in Scotland, and social media advice to photography, Natbee’s is like flicking through the pages of your favourite magazine, but regularly updated and easily accessible whenever you want it! Even though the blog has changed over the years, my goal remains the same and I hope to inspire people to live life to the fullest and chase their dreams.
