I'm the writer and editor of my blog Fashionista Era, my purpose of making this blog has a lot of reasons. I personally find it to be my online diary in a sense. Its bringing my personality into this blog. From fashion to spirituality which I really follow, this is getting to know me a little more. I absolutely LOVE my readers. You are the reason I strive to make sure I share all things I love. A great way to track all my favorite blogs is through Bloglovin. Its like opening a magazine to flip through and read a lot of talented bloggers! I love to respond to every person who comments on my blog. Its very important to me to have that personal touch. Below is an excerpt from one of the interviews I had done for a blog :) Enjoy!

How did you come around with the name 'Fashionista Era'? What do you like about blogging?

Well, I thought about the name a lot. I feel that our Era has a lot of inclination about Fashion and Style. However, my blog does talk about Fashion but its about beauty inside and out. I want my readers to experience my views and even Spirituality which I cover under 'Soul' category. I wanted to bring my personality to my blog and make it more personal. Its one of the places I can be myself and share my journey.

What does Fashion mean to you?
Making sure that you have your own unique style and don't be in a rush to get someone else's look becoz it might not work for you. Be original. I had the habit of following what celebrities were or the magazine trends and ended up making such blunders! It taught me to like the styles that suit my personality and like what I wear. The more you try to imitate, the more you will be displeased.

Now tell us a little about you. Where did you grow up?

Gosh..that's a complicated question. Hehe. Well, I grew up in the Dubai and Bahrain..traveled quiet a bit and lived in India. I have also lived in US and now in Europe. I am grateful for all the travel opportunities and be able to travel across the world and live and meet people from all the different parts of the world and learn about their experiences and it was just a great experience. 

Which is your favorite holiday destination?

I've loved LA and New York. Europe is stunning and I'm enjoying it a lot. There are places there like Riga in Latvia, and also enjoyed  I look forward to exploring more. I'm looking forward to Paris and Switzerland. 

What was the happiest moment of your life? The saddest?

The happiest moment for me are few special occasions like getting married :) Time I spend with charities and for a few years and it brought me the most joy. Taking time out to help others is probably the most  Seeing my parents so proud of me was awsum feeling :) Saddest probably was when my  grandma passed away. She was an exceptional person.

Who are your favorite celebs?

I adore Robert Pattinson, not just his looks but that he seems really sweet. Another celeb I really adore is Ian Somerhalder for similar reasons, his passion for conserving the environment is so amazing. Also Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron. From Bollywood, it would be Aishwarya Rai and Deepika padukone, Hrithik Roshan

Who is the most important person in your life? Can you tell me about him or her?

The most important after my parents is my husband. He's my backbone and has been such a incredible force in my life. He has given me a drive and motivation to continue with my passions and that's leading to writing a book. Something which was so difficult for me to achieve with my crazy work life.

Who has been the biggest influence in your life? What lessons did that person teach you?

My parents. They taught me a lot through their life experiences and how to be a better person. The other thing that I respect that they did was always give me space to be who I wanted to be and not control me. I saw people around me not get that. It allowed me to be creative and give absolutely freedom to be who I was. Treating me with respect and like They made me who I am today.

Who has been the kindest to you in your life?

My best friends. I have had them for over 15 years now! Wow that sounds so long, but its been always loyal friends and I am so grateful for them in my life. They always have the best time and even if we just hangout and have a milkshake and french fries! When it's about any major hurdles in my life they have been always there for me.

What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?

The best lesson I've learnt is to let go of negative energy. They are a lot of forces or people who will always want to put you down or disrespect you. Hence, my approach has always been I will either be nice or just get neutral. Negative energy in your system is the worst thing you can create.

  How have you developed your style?

Style is such a subjective word. However, my style is making sure I am comfortable in what I wear. I feel a lot of people get hung up with the opinions of others which is such a waste of time! When you like what you wear, you will make sure you look good.

Do you prefer designer, vintage or high-street?

I love to combine these styles sometimes. But naturally, I love certain designers a lottttttt so I guess I lean on to that fashion more, it suits me more than vintage for sure.

What is the one essential item in your wardrobe you couldn't live without?

It has to be my handbags! I carry everything I want in them and they make me look very stylish :-) I like both the high end or regular bags and not that particular about brands. I have a few designer purses for special occasions. Though, I don’t have a huge collection for sure! J

Any last words?

 Always remember, be kind, give back and try to make someone smile. Life's too short to be rude or hurtful. I think we need to take the time we have to help people. Do more volunteer work, spread some joy, and complement people and be nice to your loved ones and family. Try your best to do what you can to look at people and help them out. You don’t know what they are going through. Life isn’t always Instagram perfect that you might see.
