“Margarita’s writing is always spot-on and a joy to read. Her choice of writing topics reflects creativity and a breadth of knowledge with a healthy dose of curiosity – key components for excellent, engaging pieces. She is down-to-earth, super-productive and easy to work with, taking suggestions with grace and aplomb. Margarita is a true pleasure to work with.”

“Margarita is one of my favorite bloggers. Her work is always substantial, comprehensive, and enlightening. In today’s blogosphere, it is rare to come across such consistent quality of prose and sound research. I appreciate the time, dedication, and thought she invests into each piece. The result is a trusted product that has garnered her much popularity in the psychology market. The breath of topics about which she writes is not only impressive–as she is a person who can absorb all kind of information and translate it to the masses in friendly language–but is a testament to her writing talent.”

“Whenever I come to Margarita’s site, I feel a palpable sense of relief. Between her beautiful aesthetic, gorgeous photos & evocative writing, I always find both respite and inspiration. Her writing is a combination of soulful pick-me-up meets practical fun. I always look forward to reading her newest work.”

“Margarita Tartakovsky is a wonderful and generous writer with integrity and smarts. All of her pieces are documented and sourced, and that’s hard to find today. I trust her and her professionalism!”


Dr. Deborah Serani
psychologist + author of Living with Depression

“I have worked with many journalists, bloggers and writers over the years, but none wrap their hearts around a subject and prose more than Margarita. She goes beyond just writing a story – instead she carefully crafts a piece that informs the reader with uncomplicated language, relatable examples and scientific data. It’s these qualities that make her a stand-out!”


Mara Glatzel
self-love coach + author of Body Loving Homework

“I have always admired the beauty, creativity, and careful attention that Margarita brings to her writing and projects. Her ability to create a nurturing and love-filled environment with her words is spellbinding, and it is no wonder that she has been able to use them to cultivate an online orbit so profoundly supportive for those on the journey to love themselves. Her personal writing is quietly brilliant and gorgeously inviting, interwoven with the full-breadth of her varied interests and inspiration. I absolutely cannot wait to see what she cooks up next.”
