What sparked your interest in fashion and beauty?
There is nothing in particular that sparked my interest in fashion and beauty, I've always been interested in these subjects. This may sound clichéd but as a kid, when my mom would go out during the day, I would sneak into her room and try out all her lipsticks from her makeup drawer! :p
What is your personal style statement?
I don't like to put my style in a box. I'm open to any kind of style whether it's boho, chic, girly or minimalistic. If I can carry it off with confidence, I'm all for it.
What made you take up blogging?
I've always been interested in fashion and beauty, but after school and I somehow ended up studying BMM (even though I wanted to do something related to fashion). I started blogging because it's my way of doing what I've always wanted to do and I absolutely love it!!

My punctuality and my OCD of getting things done the way I want them and trying to get them done on time.
