What sparked your interest in fashion and beauty?
I have been intrigued by fashion and beauty ever since I was a kid. I would always raid my mom’s closet as she was a very stylish woman. It was watching my mom dress up that sparked my interest in fashion.
What is your personal style statement?
Personally, I love challenging myself with different style trends and I love to carry them off with elegance. I like to keep it exciting and trendy, yet wearable and comfortable.
What made you take up blogging?
My interest in fashion picked up when I was living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was amazed by the fashion trends there and then it sparked the idea of a blog where I could share my fashion experiences from different countries. I took up blogging as a full time profession in 2014 when I moved back to India as I saw a big fashion and social media revolution here. I also noticed how women in India were very enterprising and fashion conscious. I always wanted to make blogging my profession and now I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing community.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
All I will say is, follow your heart, be brave to be different and believe in yourself. Let people see who you really are and what your style is.
