ENJOY and Have a blessed week ahead humans!

1.I love! Love! the short hair on you! It’s quite daring for a lady to cut her hair. What inspired you to rock the short hair?

Well, it’s actually quite simple. I used to have the Rihanna/Cassie half shaved head look. Half my head was weaved and the other half was shaved down. After a while, I got bored and was ready for a change.   I did not want to switch the side that I lay my hair to let the other side grow out. I decided to shave my head and start again. Once I looked at myself I realized, I have a decent shaped head and decided to stick with it.

2.What do you consider as an investment piece in your wardrobe?

Bags! Bags! I prefer to spend more money on bags. They last for years and a good quality leather bag can go the distance.

 3. Do you think your style has changed over the years?

Definitely, I now go for timeless pieces over trendy pieces. Simple and clean over “over the top” pieces.

4. When did you start blogging and why did you choose fashion?

I started blogging maybe 5 years ago. It started as a hobby and I never knew I could turn it into a career.  For the fashion aspect, I have always just loved fashion.

 5.What are the challenges you faced when you started fashion blogging?

Getting companies to take me seriously. In the beginning companies did not understand blogging. It was a foreign concept to them. Why pay a blogger when I can just put an ad in a newspaper? It took years for me to prove that I should work for them.

 6.What are the highlights in your fashion blogging journey?

At this moment, I have to say getting a chance to work with HIDESIGN and having the opportunity to be the face of their new collection. It was a dream come true!

 7.Between Alexander McQueen and Valentino, which of these designers would you love to work with?

Alexander McQueen.

 8.One thing you wish you knew when you started your fashion blog?

I wish I learned how to write a proposal from the beginning.  My “official” proposals were soooooo bad. It’s kinda sad.

 9. What are the 3 major things a fashion blogger should consider when taking photos?

Lighting! Lighting and angles

10.Your skin is always glowing, what’s the secret behind it?

My secret is MAC bronzer (not highlighter) and MAC setting spray (FIX PLUS). I use both the bronzer and setting spray even when I am not wearing makeup. It’s my addiction.
