What sparked your interest in fitness, food and travel?
Having had the chance to travel quite a bit since I was young, sparked my interest in other cultures and their food. It always fascinates and excites me! I've always been one to eat whatever I want, whenever I want to especially if it's deep fried or has any form of cheese. But with the number of healthy people around me increasing I've started to feel the need to start working out at least a little and because of that I've also started adding more fruits and veggies in my meals. I'm just hoping I stick to the routine :P
What is your personal style statement?
Simple and chic!
What made you take up blogging?
It was really my sister Deepa Maben who got us started because people were always complimenting us and asking us about our outfits so we finally decided to start sharing all of it while we were living in Canada.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Stay true to your style and don't try to force yourself to be like anyone else. Sounds cliche but people are more interested in knowing you and your style.
