See honestly you should start something when you actually love it not for the sake of money. I won't say just start it. Do your researches and then take a decision.
RK : First of all, thanks a lot for accepting our invitation for an interview.Please say something about you. About your career as a fashion blogger influencer &model. How did you get started?
Soumili : First of all thank you for making me a part of your magazine. It means a lot.
Talking about me, I am a student. I study at Techno India University persuing with E.C.E. I started my journey just a year ago. I take a trip down to the memory lane when I posted my first blog on 17th May 2018. Still remember how anxious and excited I was. So that's how I started. Very randomly..!!
RK : You have an exceptionally unique look. Where does your style savvy come from, and where do you get your inspiration?
Soumili : Honestly I don't have anyone particular in my mind whom I look up to for my style but yaa Pinterest has always been my savior.
RK : Do you see yourself as a “Blogger &influencer”, and if so, what does that mean to you?
Soumili : Yes..!! Of course I see myself as an Influencer and a blogger. It has always been my dream to be one and here I am chasing my dream. Blogging is something which has my passion and dedication which makes it very close to my heart and it will always be something special to me.
RK : When did you start blogging/ social media, and what was your motivation for getting started?
Soumili : I started following my passion back in 2018 particularly on 17th May.
I always loved the idea of being a blogger but didn't have the enough courage to start it. I remember Aeropostale had arranged a meet & greet where they invited Aashna Shroff (Indian Fashion Blogger ) in south city and I was there too to meet her. I love how everyone was inspired by her and that day I became sure I want to inspire people. So that's how it all started.

Soumili : # I rarely shop from stores. I’m way too lazy to browse the stores. Online shopping is my baby.
# I can spend my rest of the life by just having desserts.
# I have a huge obsession over bags. Also shoe obsession is building in me now.
# I become very perfectionist when it comes to my pictures. I can make my photographer reshoot a whole photoshoot if I don't love it from the heart. Also I literally take more than 50 shots for just 1 perfect picture.
# If I get an option to choose between a luxurious diamond piece and a normal high end bag I'll go for the bag instead.
