I really think the content should be unique and then crowd will enjoy. The biggest challenge here is to stay active on social media. The followers are around the world so posting unique content all the time is the key to success. People tend to forget if your content is not interesting or you are not regular.

N: O yes, of course! I am not perfect. I am still learning. There is always a new day and I get to learn something new each day. I want to create video content and I am working on it currently.

LH: Any final thoughts or advice for those that would like to follow in your footsteps?
N: Fashion world is creative. You might feel dull for not having enough followers; people may not like your content but be consistent and keep creating exceptional content. Learn from follow bloggers and work on your shortcomings. Never compare but keep getting inspired from this world.
