Who do I Collaborate with?
I am currently collaborating with a few online clothing brands including Shein, Romwe, MakemeChic, FashioMia, New Chic, Rosegal, Zaful, StyleWe, IWOWD, Vibha and some local boutiques. These websites send me the items I like as a gift.
I collaborate with only those fashion companies whose products I genuinely like and would otherwise use/buy/wear even if they weren’t a gift.
Now and then, I get requests from fashion and tech companies to advertise/review their product in exchange for money. But I politely say ‘no’ to those offers. I want to try and test these products before I post them on my blog or recommend it to my friends and readers. I try to write genuine reviews as much as possible.
I am my own stylist:
Even though some of the clothes are sent as gifts, I style and create different looks using my own creative ideas. If I am inspired by a magazine, celebrity or pinterest outfit, I will mention it in my post.
The c/o term:
C/o ultimately means that an item was a gift and I didn’t pay for it. In other words, its a collaboration and NOT an advertisement.
Why am I blogging?
I started blogging out of my pure love for budget-friendly fashion, food and frugality. You don’t have to put a hole in your pocket to look stylish. My goal is to reach thousands of women and motivate them to invest time in themselves, love their bodies (irrespective of their shape, size, color, age, sexual orientation etc.), dress well and feel beautiful.
Should I Monetize…??
Blogging is my part-time/weekend job. I am a User Experience Designer (some may categorize as Software Engineer) by profession. I become a fashion blogger post work-hours and on weekends ;).
Amey (my husband and ChicPudding’s photographer) and I dedicate most of our entire weekends creating quality content that would be helpful, useful and fun to my readers. I am juggling my career, house-hold chores, fitness etc all at the same time. It is not easy to carve out time for your passions. But I try my best and am completely dedicated to making my blog successful! At the end of the day, an individual is motivated to deliver the best if s/he feels compensated for the hard-work they put in. May be I will start monetizing my blog too. But I promise, I won’t jeopardize my content.
