Hey Bhavna! We love your blog Bittersweet Bhavna. What got you into blogging?
I started off blogging because I love writing. I did a Journalism degree at University and always try to find an opportunity to write whenever I can. What better way than to share your thoughts on something you’re passionate about with everyone else?
What bloggers inspire you?
There are a few beauty and fashion blogs that I love to read and that have inspired me. I love Couture Girl by Kayleigh, I can really relate to all her blog posts. There’s also The Fashion Bybel by Carli who is a fashion goddess – I love her style! She’s always on trend and her vlogs are my favourite.
Describe your personal style in 3 words…
Feminine, sophisticated with a hint of glamour!
What advice would you give to bloggers about growing their reader-base?
Be creative with your content and make sure you update your blog regularly to attract more readers. Networking is also important, take the time to read other peoples blogs and get to know them. Tweeting also helps. Put yourself out there!
What does the future look like for the blog?
The future is bright (I think haha.) I’m working on some fun beauty posts at the moment that I think will interest a lot of women. I’m also thinking of starting up a YouTube channel so watch this space!
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t give up and perseverance is key. As a Journalism graduate it’s pretty difficult to get to where I want to be but I’m gonna keep at it!
What does a typical day look like for you?
I like to set days where I can work on posts for my blog, but lately I’ve had to juggle that with job hunting and other stuff that is going on at the moment!
Finally, we’ve all had them…what is your biggest fashion disaster?
Back in the 90’s/ early noughties, I had these bright, almost neon pair of pink skinny trousers that I thought were cool and I’d wear them a lot. Looking back I cringe so much.
