Riya Hassani aka ‘theflavor.tummy’, hailing from Surat, the land of diamonds and textiles, is one of the big guns of the blogging industry. She is a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger and an inspiration to many! Let’s hear about her journey in her own words.
How did you first get into this world of blogging?
The core of this is my passion for food and fashion. I love cooking a lot and also fashion is something that kicks my spirits high. Basically, in the initial days, I didn’t think of blogging as an actual profession but just started it as a sideline thing. It was just to explore and have fun, though I was clear about my interests. So, I started off as a food blogger and during the early phases of my blogging, I tried various recipes and different cuisines. I also hold a record of creating 13 tried and tested recipes in 72 hours. As I started getting appreciation and love from the audience, I thought of further enlarging my blog and started fashion and lifestyle blogging.
What are the strengths that helped you while blogging?
I believe that being real in this industry is very necessary as anyone can do it by copying but no one can be the real you! Also, hard work is necessary for any profession and apart from that, simplicity is something that one should cherish. Fashion is not just about going all flashy and vibrant, it’s the blend like spice and sweet!
