Blogger of the Week: Ramandeep Kaur

An Engineering graduate, Ramandeep Kaur worked in some of the top MNCs in India for 6 years until last year when she moved to the UK with her husband. Having managed her day job and blog together for 3 years, last year she decided to take up blogging full-time. Besides blogging, she loves to dance and travel as well as enjoys reading inspirational stories about successful people as it fills her with positive energy.

 

Hues of Me” as the name suggests, is her personal online journal where one can find stories about fashion, beauty and travel aiming to inspire every woman around the world reading it. With a strong desire to create and serve relatable quality content, she thrives to put up articles that are visually appealing and aspirational for her readers.

 

Ramandeep Kaur

 

Ramandeep has been blogging for 4 years now and ardently believes that every blog has a unique essence. Since she has a personal blog, everything that goes with it is unique as well as personal to her.

 

Inspired by real-time success stories of people in her field of interest, reading about their journies inspired her to reach where they are today. Also, getting appreciated for her work inspires her to keep doing what she loves.

 

She started her blog in 2014 as an online space where she could articulate things that she loved. She was reading a lot of blogs around that time and felt that starting her own blog was a perfect way to feed her creative soul. It started off as a hobby and now is her profession.

 

Her style constantly evolves but she calls it comfortable chic. She loves to refresh her wardrobe with latest trends but prefers to keep her classics too. Kaur believes investing in classic pieces like accessories or handbags to be the best style advice one can get. She believes that fashion is a lifestyle and how one dresses on a daily basis while running errands or chores defines their personal style.

 

Blogging to her is about sharing independent views with her readers on any given subject without being biased. It is a platform where she can reach out to many people around the world as well as connect with them on a personal level. According to her, this is the most amazing aspect of blogging.

 

She started out with a different blog name and later changed it to “Hues of Me”. She wanted a name that resonated with her work on the blog in terms of content and her personality and “Hues of Me” was a perfect fit. Majority of her readers are in India but she also gets views from UK and US. Now that she is fully dedicated to her blog, she has some big plans for it and wishes to come to India soon. She wants to concentrate on creating good quality content that her readers can relate to and get inspired by. She wishes to work on some dream collaborations this year and knows that it would involve a lot of hard work, but she feels ready to put her best foot forward. She is also planning to spend more time on her own YouTube channel in order to connect with a wider audience through it.

 

She uses a Canon 1200D DSLR camera with a basic kit lens and a 50mm prime lens. All her pictures are clicked using the same camera or her iPhone.

 

For someone who wants to start blogging, Ramandeep advises one to work hard, not succumb to the numbers or worry about what others are doing. She feels that one should always carve his or her own niche and stay true to oneself.

Blogger of the Week: Vinitha Shetty

Vinitha Shetty is a blogger, stylist and a production manager. An all-rounder, ‘Beingnita’ is a blog about a girl next door’s journey which strives on figuring out latest trends. The idea behind the blog is to have an individual style intact. She features high street, affordable luxury and even thrift buys giving rise to an array of personal style for a perfect look.

 

Vinitha’s blog is not your average blog, she says she does not see people accepting their flaws that often. Shetty adds, ‘I see it in their style, but they seem to not mention why or how they chose their outfit’. This is where she stands out from the crowd and does things differently. She makes each outfit a step-by-step!

 

The blogger prefers to dress comfortably with a touch of modern and desi styling. She features clothes that suit her the best irrespective of trends and adds her own touch to the outfit.

Mood, as well as her current weight, is her primary source of inspiration when it comes to fashion and style. Apart from that, she loves stalking other bloggers and their take on fashion.

 

A plethora of picture-perfect bloggers, with great skin and perfect body, made her want to start her own blog. She also wanted to represent women with different body types and skin tones.

 

Vinitha Shetty

 

Vinitha Shetty believes blogging is a great way for people who are invested in fashion to engage with those who do not take it as a full-time job and would find it helpful in terms of latest trends in the fashion world. ‘I think blogging is a huge responsibility as you want to give your end user the ultimate source of information’, mentions the blogger.

 

Being Nita is a variation of her name, the blog intends to show her audience a different side of her. A reform of herself – ‘Nita’

Beingnita’s audience is varied and consists of a majority of 16-year-olds looking for latest fashion ideas. Women in their mid-twenties look for relatable stories to read whereas women in their late twenties hunt for sustainable fashion via her blog!

 

The multifaceted blogger would like to venture out into making more videos in the near future. She uses a Canon 700D with a 50mm lens for her pictures.

 

Vinitha says, ‘If you like it, wear it. Trends and fashion faux pas are not the law!’ Someone who’d like to start blogging or is new to blogging, being true to oneself is a must. The ultimate point of blogging should be to portray one’s true version and not a make-believe persona!

Blogger of the Week: Samee Taskin

Hailing from North-East India, Samee Taskin feels that fashion and style have always been in her living roots. She mentions a memory of her mother making her wear a “skort” (skirt+shorts) for her uncle’s wedding when she was 5 years old. Her style has evolved through years along with influences from various fashion trends. Her primary education was done in Assam and she graduated in B.Tech in Manipal, Sikkim. She shares her love for cooking through her social handle dedicated to food (@themidmess).

 

Apart from that, her other likes are photography and books. She is a tea-holic and a minimalist at heart. Her blog “Sassy and Classy” is about fashion and Lifestyle. She doesn’t wish to limit herself to a single genre. She likes to blog about anything that grabs her interest, for example, she did a blog post on how to plan your Instagram handle, because she feels it is an important task if we wish to present it as our portfolio. Samee thinks that being unique in a crowded niche is not easy. She mentions, “While there may be a lot of other blogs that cover similar topics as my blog, I try to take advantage of my strength and experiences to help make my blog stand out. I try not to publish all the same types of content. Minimalism is my forte! Be it in fashion or lifestyle.” She also documents post-travel diaries and food recipes along with my other blogs.
Since she is fond of minimalism, it is her definitive style. She shares
 “I like anything and everything minimal and simple. I believe less is more and that’s what I go about when I do any styling or buy any home décor. I am fond of earthy tones because of the warm vibes. As for colour palette, I like coral colours and the hue ‘Fall’ is my latest favourite. Casual, Basic and Minimal is what I would describe my style as.”

 

She draws inspiration from current situations, mood or colour palette. The mundane life is where she drives her interest from. Social Media, according to her, is a great platform to get many inspirations from. Her blog came into being on one quiet evening of May 2016. She shares the anxiety she felt at that moment, “Everything about blogging seemed so daunting to me, uploading pictures, being consistent, having a catchy name etc. I have been really interested in blogging since the time I discovered the blogging community back in 2010 where I use to see my sister blogging. I thought I would create a little corner for myself in the world of Internet and share my interests.”

.

 

Samee Taskin

 

The significance of Blogging varies from person to person. It has been a year of blogging for her and yet she feels she’s naive at it. Blogging is not a piece of cake, it needs consistent work and a lot of patience. Blogging does not mean mere posting articles online. The main motive of blogging is sharing. For Samee, it does not matter how you share your knowledge and content with people, but the presentation is attractive and comprehensible.  She shares her anecdote about her blog’s name, “I have a penchant for classic as well as quirky. I think every person has both these sides, hence I chose ‘Sassy and Classy’ as the blog title.”  Her audience comprises mostly of youth from all across the globe. She aims to reach out to everyone. Her future plans include various collaborations and paid sponsors as an influencer and creator. Social Media plays an important role in this. She would love to create a YouTube channel, but that plan is still in pipeline.  She uses Canon 500D for her digital pictures but iPhone does a very good job, especially in portrait mode. She does a major chunk of iPhone photography as well. Yashica is reserved for print photography. She feels “Camera is just a tool, it doesn’t actually matter what camera we use to click amazing photos”.

 

One advice the blogger inside her would like to pass on to the readers is if someone wants to start blogging, just go for it. There will be lots of ifs and buts, which will be there always, so instead of speculating, jump into the sphere and experience it yourself. Her tip for other bloggers is “make mistakes if you can and then learn from them. Experience is the best teacher.”

Blogger of the Week: Shruti

Shruti is a 29-year-old multi-tasker, who efficiently juggles her life with a 2 and a half year long marriage, her work profile of a UI/UX designer and a blog. She has planned to come up with her online store of curated vintage inspired clothes. She is an ardent vintage lover. Film photography, yoga, classic rock music and clothes are among her other favourites.

Her blog is about her thoughts, things and people that inspire her, and all other things she loves- photography, music, travel, etc.

 

On being asked about what makes her blog unique, she states

“It’s a difficult one to answer though. I mean someone else would be able to tell it better if it is different at all. On my part, I try to create a feeling rather than something that is commercial or something that looks artificial. It is actually difficult for me to categorise my blog because I write about a variety of topics: everything I feel and experience. To many it may look like a style blog but it’s not entirely a style blog. I also write about my life, my weaknesses, my thoughts – so maybe that’s something that makes it different. I also don’t have regular updates on my blog, because I don’t want to make it something that I need to maintain or feel the pressure to maintain. I started this blog as an escape route and I wish to keep it that way.”

 

Her style statement is not of a trend follower or a brand conscious person. Versatility is her keyword. She shares, “My style keeps on changing on how I feel on a particular day or the kind of music I am into.”

 

Music is a major influence on her style. On days when punk rock is in a loop, her attire reflects that. Her wardrobe reflects her playlist of the day, let it be Kenny Rodgers, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles etc. To pin down, her style is a mix of the 60s and androgynous fashion.

 

She feels her inspiration doesn’t come from trendsetting and high ended fashion journals but from street style and music. She likes what she terms practical fashion, something that you can carry every day. She is fond of efficient tailoring. TV shows have been her major source of inspiration lately, some of the characters from Downton Abbey, Mad Men for example. She has also explored the arena of men’s fashion and loves to borrow stuff from her husband’s wardrobe.

 

She started her blog in 2013. It started as a platform to spill out her thoughts. She developed upon her blog as a style curation feed a year after in 2014. She finds blogging a great platform to share, a great way for her to express her creativity and thoughts. For someone like her, who started a blog solely to express thoughts and share photos – she feels blogging has also lost its essence in many ways. According to her blogging is a great way to know a person. She says, “for me – to be able to feel/ connect with someone just by reading about them is really important. To be able to feel like you know them and you can relate to them or think they are really cool or just like you makes you feel like you will be great friends if you met in real life.”

She believes blogging has become a source of income, a full-time job, a feedback forum in many ways but feels that connection to be able to relate on a personal level is missing.

Her blog which is called Retro Days comes from her love for everything vintage such as old music, retro/vintage fashion, film photography, old architecture and many other things.

 

Her posts are quite relatable to people who are in their 20s/30s but sometimes it becomes hard for her to judge her audience as people from various ages have liked her content from time to time just like her yoga posts that are liked by people of different age groups.

 

Shruti

 

Long-term planning is not the kind of game that she plays but wishes to keep having fun and follow her passion. She says, “I really like blogging, so I’ll keep doing that for sure. I am planning to launch my online shop soon and I’m really looking forward to that. Exploring my creative potential is something that is always on the cards. To stay happy and fit is my everyday goal”

 

Shruti uses her iPhone to click her pictures but prefers using a digital camera when someone else clicks for her. However, she wishes to start using film cameras as they bring a type of feel that most other cameras cannot capture.

 

She says that people should not start blogging with a notion of making money on it because at that very moment one ends up losing authenticity which causes the focus to get diluted and she believes that one should write and blog just for oneself.

Blogger of the Week: Shubhkiran

Shubhkiran is a 25-year-old Business and Design graduate from Chandigarh. She juggles between a routine of 9 to 5 Design job during the day and a fashion blog by night. The blog began as a medium to share her favourite buys and budget finds. It has now transformed into a kaleidoscopic display of everything from travel and fashion to beauty and lifestyle.

 

The uniqueness of the blog lies in presenting the mundane everyday style in an impressive way. It’s about clothes that are versatile, shoes that are comfortable, beauty products that are great yet affordable. It stands out because it’s less about the current trends and fads and more about individual style.

 

Describing her personal style statement, Shubhkiran shares, 
’My style is very minimal and basic chic but with a bit of edge. It’s about low key yet timeless pieces topped with fun or a statement accessory to uplift the overall impact.’

 

Shubhkiran

 

Her major sources of inspiration are all the fashion magazines and personal style blogs she grew up reading. While she learnt about what’s new and ‘it’ via magazines, style blogs paved the way for moulding her personal style. Hence, print and digital media are the key factors of her style enhancement.

 

Shubhkiran started her blog in June 2015. She ardently followed fashion blogs from her high school days, which lead her to discover the lack of content about the everyday budget fashion online. Thus, she started documenting budget-friendly daily outfits on social media. Once that gained momentum, he gave his blog a proper professional touch.

 

Blogging, according to Shubhkiran, is a great platform to express oneself and share one’s passions. One earns a lot of exposure and opportunities via connecting with like-minded people. To be precise, it’s an online portfolio of your digital presence and helps you establish your personality in the desired arena or industry.

 

She also shares the anecdote behind the blog name,
’I always dress up in fragments i.e. tops and bottoms. Whenever I have to break down my outfit, I begin with the top and then the bottom and then all the other accessories or add-ons. The method in which I explain my apparels pinned down the name of the blog to “TOP TO BOTTOM”. It is an exhausted term in my vocabulary till date.’

 

The audience ranges from the age of 15 to 35, comprising of mostly college youth and women on the move looking for everyday outfit inspiration.

 

She plans to venture into YouTube and building a more personal rapport with her audience. She has also planned to introduce more segments into the blog and converting it into one comprehensive style guide for everyday women.

 

She uses a Canon 70D but at times resorts to her first camera i.e. the Nikon D3200.

 

An advice from Shubhkiran to upcoming bloggers to people who are stepping into this field,

 ‘Be 100% original and show the real you. People identify more with someone who has flaws and is closer to reality rather than a person who is perfect but stagnant. Secondly, be consistent if you want to build a community out of the traffic, but make sure to periodically refresh content on your blog, and give a reason for your followers to return to your blog, and grab attention of the newer audience as well.’

Blogger of the Week: Charuta Arvind Yadav

Charuta Arvind Yadav is the Founder and Creative Head of art inspired, experimental fashion, DIY (do it yourself), travel and lifestyle blog named ‘Moda Yalda’. A masters degree holder in technology in Genetic Engineering, Charuta blogs about wearable art, street style and has recently started sharing her travel experiences via blogging.

 

A blog free of following set patterns or trends, the blogger always adds a personal touch to her blogs. ‘I would not force trends or brands down your feed. I have a strong voice and I believe in what I say and that’s very important otherwise you just become a part of the herd’, says Yadav.

 

Charuta Arvind Yadav

 

Her blog name, ‘Moda’ is derived from Spanish meaning ‘Fashion’ and Hebrew word “Yalda’ which means ‘Daughter/Birth’ which ultimately translates into ‘fashion’s birth or fashion’s daughter’ in English!

 

A fashion bipolar, she does not have a tedious approach to style. Experimental by nature, Charuta wants to try everything and wear everything that makes her feel good without caring about the rules. ‘I do love vintage finds and statement pieces’, mentions the blogger.

 

Greatly inspired by art, travel and people, the engineer started her blog 3 years back. With an idea to document her personal style, she started wearing self-designed hand painted clothes turning it into a visual diary. Charuta uses a Nikon D5100 for her artistic pictures.

 

Blogging is much more, to have a voice of your own is one such thing she believes in. To create content of which one is proud of, something that is cohesive with one’s vision should be a top priority when it comes to blogging. The blog (website) should be the main focus. She says, ‘social media apps like Instagram and Facebook come and go and they are just extensions where you share your work, your blog is your work’.

 

The blogger feels blessed to have a mature audience that understands the work she does. They also have the capability to appreciate her love for art based blog posts. She wishes to continue her blogging journey and give more time to her personal brand ‘Adagio’ in the future.

 

She advises our readers to not worry about trends or rules when it comes to fashion or style. If you like it, wear it – is her motto when it comes to blogging.

She also shares her tips for new bloggers or someone who’d like to start blogging. Number one, be original. She stresses newbies to have their own voice and to stand true to their vision. Last but not the least, blogging shall never be started because of perks or sheer excitement one has out of fancying a particular blogger’s style! ‘Because to be honest, the perks do not even suffice for the hard work you put in’, she says.

Blogger of the Week: Sonali Singh

The immense love and support from you ‘Creative Heads’ have been surreal over the past few years. Inspiro India wishes to grow with the growing population of ‘#inspiroindia‘. We’re continuously working to bring great content to anyone and everyone following us on various platforms.

This year we present to you, an all new feature presenting ‘The Blogger of the Week’.

 

Sonali Singh is a full-time blogger, with an education which spans from science to event management and has always been interested in multiple things.

‘TheStyleDrug’ is a personal blog which exists solely because of Sonali’s love for fashion! She likes sharing her views on fashion, connecting with readers and experimenting from time to time.

 

With the ongoing blog trend, ‘TheStyleDrug’ does tend to shine out! Sonali feels, ‘A blog is like a person, individual and unique’. Copying is a strict no-no when it comes to styling clothes and daily outfits. She tries creating unusual attires so she can have something original to write about.

 

Sonali Singh

 

With a style which has evolved pretty dramatically, Sonali tries to showcase chic, polished, edgy, effortless and casual at the same time!

Getting inspired by her mom is a no-brainer and quite cliché agrees the blogger. Her mother’s style has always taught her to wear whatever one is comfortable in. ‘She always emphasises not to fit in according to people’s wants!’, adds Sonali.

 

TheStyleDrug is only 2 years old and was born during a very random conversation with the best friend! A simple question like ‘why not?’ started her journey to blog, followed with taking pictures with her best friend which turned out to be quite beautiful. It was time to share it online and make the blogging journey more obvious!

‘TheStyleDrug’ is a platform for experimenting, going out of comfort zones while dressing up along with sharing her viewpoints and ideas for a reason.

‘Every blogger has their own reasons for wanting to share and every blogger has vastly different levels of dedication to it’, says Sonali. The blog also boasts of a young audience of girls who look up to Sonali for daily style and outfit inspiration.

 

Her blogging tips and tricks include her iPhone 8 Plus camera for daily Instagram updates and a Canon camera for the website pictures. She also suggests being inventive and consistent when it comes to blogging. Agonizing over comments and likes is also a thing of the past, ‘the most important thing is to have fun with your job. Love it and be happy’, stresses Sonali Singh!

Blogger of the Week: Neha Menghwani

The immense love and support from you ‘Creative Heads’ have been surreal over the past few years. Inspiro India wishes to grow with the growing population of ‘#inspiroindia‘. We’re continuously working to bring great content to anyone and everyone following us on various platforms.

This year we present to you, an all new feature presenting ‘The Blogger of the Week’.

 

Neha, a Design and Styling Head at a high fashion label has always been interested in fashion. She realised at a very young age that style would always dominate her life no matter what.

A studious kid, the now blogger topped Mumbai University but she never got the encouragement to study fashion. However, she ended up following her heart and entered the fashion industry, incorporating her passion with her job.

 

Neha blogs predominantly about her personal style and how she dresses on a day to day basis along with a few magnified looks.

She describes her style to be very basic but wearing them differently to add her own twist to it. She says, ‘It’s all about styling, and that’s what I give tips about on my blog. I also include a “Pro Tip” in every blog post’.

The young stylist believes styling key pieces to be her biggest strength. She wears garments differently than people normally would. Her style is raw, edgy, street chic, extra, colourful, tonal and much more!

 

Neha Menghwani

 

‘I would say I am head to toe well styled – meaning every garment and accessory is playing a part and contributing to the whole look’, emphasizes Neha. A style chameleon, she gets really excited and tries out something new every single time.

Having said that, the young blogger takes inspiration from street style photographs she spots on Instagram and Pinterest. Every individual creates a unique look and wears clothes differently according to the fashionista. There’s so much creativity which gets her mind working and right back styling.

 

Fairly new to starting a blog but not new to styling, Neha decided to document her style when fashion insiders from the fashion industry kept complimenting her amazing style!

Stylessential, a blog name which also describes what the stylist believes in, ‘Style Is Essential’, a sense of style is something an individual has and will always have, says the stylist. Good styling can make the most unflattering garment look amazing stresses Neha! She also wishes to expand her blog into beauty and travel related stories.

 

Not to forget, a majority of her followers are based in India which consists of college students, fashion students, aspiring bloggers and also working professionals.

 

To click pictures, Neha uses a HTC phone or a friend’s iPhone and also adds that only 10% of the pictures for the blog are taken with a DSLR. ‘I edit all my pictures myself and that’s really where the magic happens’, says the blogger.

 

Great at blogging her style, she admits it is challenging as well. The fact that she can inspire people to go the extra mile when it comes to dressing oneself also gives her a high when she wears certain apparels and blogs about them! It is hard to be regular with blogging along with having a killer Instagram account and a full-time job but nonetheless, she loves it!

Blogger of the Week : Mawi Neitham

The immense love and support from you ‘Creative Heads’ have been surreal over the past few years. Inspiro India wishes to grow with the growing population of ‘#inspiroindia‘. We’re continuously working to bring great content to anyone and everyone following us on various platforms.

This year we present to you, an all new feature presenting ‘The Blogger of the Week’.

 

Mawi is a 90s kid, who’s obsessed with fashion, food & of course Selena Gomez! haha
Apart from that, she considers herself as an (annoying) perfectionist. Her blog is a reflection of who she is and what she believes. Mawi says, “I write about my take on fashion and my personal fashion choices. If you love thrift (and budget) shopping, Welcome to my world! I try and keep it as real as possible and this might come as a shock to most of you but I do not see my blog as a means of making money because to be honest, I started my blog out of passion and even today my main focus is to share my love for fashion and style to my readers and followers rather than making my blog a source of income.”

 

Mawi Neitham

 

On asking about her sense of style, she quotes, “I do not have any specific style. I love experimenting and how I dress up depends on my mood. I can go from edgy streetstyle to feminine all in a week. The only thing that’s constant for me while picking up an outfit is Comfort! I make sure that I’m comfortable in whatever I wear”.
Mawi loves spending multiple hours on Instagram and Pinterest and that’s pretty much where most of her inspiration comes from.

Mawi talks about her blog as how she initiated, “ I started my blog in 2013. Being a college student who’s constantly on a budget, I always had a hard time finding budget friendly blogs especially in India and that’s where my inspiration for starting a blog came from. I’ve always believed that fashion does not come with a heavy price tag and you can always stay stylish and be on trend without burning a hole in your pocket! That’s what I try and convey my readers through my blog.”

“It’s quite interesting to see how the blogging industry has grown over the years and people have (up to an extent) realized the worth of bloggers. I love the fact that blogging helps us connect to people worldwide and seeing them getting inspired from our blogs is one of the best feeling ever” Mawi talks about her take on blogging..

On asking about her blog’s name, “I’ve always loved thrift shopping and collecting vintage pieces since the very beginning and while deciding my blog’s name I knew I wanted to include my name along with something I love. So that’s how Mawi’svintage was born (hehe)”

Her audience are mostly teenagers and young adults!
“I love watching fashion and beauty channels on Youtube so I’m thinking of giving Vlogging a try. But considering the perfectionist that I am, I want to make sure all my videos are perfect to the T so maybe I’ll learn to edit first and let’s see where it takes me. *fingers crossed*” Mawi talks about her future plans.
Regarding cameras, Mawi uses Nikon D7000 when shooting on her own but when she’s working with photographers, they usually use their own cameras.
“It’s totally cool to draw inspiration from latest fashion trends or influencers but make sure you give it your own twist. Also, don’t follow trends blindly! If you wanna start a blog of your own, the only thing I would suggest is to be yourself. Just keep it real because that’s how this blogging industry works. Love what you do and try to be as consistent as possible. Apart from that, just enjoy and have fun blogging!” Mawi advices people about blogging.

Blogger of the Week : Varun Singhania

The immense love and support from you ‘Creative Heads’ have been surreal over the past few years. Inspiro India wishes to grow with the growing population of ‘#inspiroindia‘. We’re continuously working to bring great content to anyone and everyone following us on various platforms.

This year we present to you, an all new feature presenting ‘The Blogger of the Week’.

 

Varun Singhania aka BeardsEyeView is many things but mostly a photographer, a personal style blogger and a hardcore beard enthusiast. He says he is a misfit, a non-conformist and an introvert.

 

While talking about his blog, he says, “My blog is a showcase of my personal style and experiments with my own wardrobe. My blog is an amalgamation of my personal style, my experiments in fashion, and a bit of travel and photography. I don’t endorse brands I don’t stand behind or the ones that don’t represent my personal style. It’s how I view fashion and how I like to see it on myself. I’m also not your typical tuxedo-wearing slick-haired dapper blogger.”

“My style is very fluid and it keeps evolving, but more often it’s a fusion between hipster and grunge/ street.” As he talks about his style.

His inspiration is a lot of Italian, Asian (Indian & Korean), underground street and tribal fashion.

Also, fashion within music, especially from the 80s inspires a lot.

Varun started blogging about 3 years ago and it was around the time He started growing  beard as well (pun intended). He says, “In fact, my beard was pretty much the game changer. It made me switch up my style and up my fashion game and I began documenting it. I also got into a lot of photography around the same time and my personal Instagram just evolved into a blog from there on.”

 

Varun’s take on blogging, “I believe that blogging should be a representation of who you are and what your views are. Whatever the core of it might be, it should always be authentic and stem from your own creativity. I don’t believe in blogs & bloggers that turn into mere advertisements and billboards.”

Varun’s blog was initially just his Instagram where he used to post his everyday photography and edits. It had nothing to do with fashion initially. “Around the same time I began growing a beard, and I began to be known as “beardie”. And it just suddenly hit me one day that I wanted an alias name; one that would be representative of not just my beard but also my vision. A friend and I got thinking, and the same day we came up with ‘Beards Eye View’ as a pun on the phrase ‘Bird’s Eye View’.”

 

He says, “My audience is a mix of beard enthusiasts, guys who want to switch up their style and women who appreciate a man who tries different things.” They’re scattered between the age group 15-30yrs and mostly from India, Italy and USA.

 

 

Varun says wherever his blog takes him regarding his future plans with blogging. “My interests are split between my blog and my photography currently, and I’m trying to find a way to fuse both. I want to experiment more with contemporary Indian fashion and also include more travel oriented content on the blog.”

 

He uses a Canon 6D and a GoPro, and occasionally iPhone.

Varun gives advice to readers would be to not judge. Never judge anyone for their style, their views and their take on things.

Two tips to future bloggers would be 1) Hire or collaborate with a good photographer. Quality pictures always make a great impression. Also, learn how to edit your own pictures/ videos. 2) Be yourself and experiment within your own style and comfort zone. Don’t be a sell out.
