Today we are in conversation with Ms. Lovina Nayak, who is fantastically working in her field.
What made you decide to start blogging?
I never decided to start this, but it has always been about looking presentable. I wear very simple and minimally, like in daily Times all day, like daily clothing is straightforward and sober, but it is also quite fashionable and fits in with everything. I was very dedicated to maintaining a minimal sense of style, but my friends thought it was great and encouraged me to take photos and post them on Facebook and Instagram because, at the time, Facebook was very popular. When I first installed Instagram, I noticed a lot of filters and was mesmerized by the attractive filter. I noticed bloggers in Pune, Delhi, and Bangalore, and I thought, “This isn’t happening in Odisha. I think I can start and treat it as a fun way in a casual way.” I started it, and my friends and a few followers really enjoyed it, so I simply continued going and didn’t stop. I feel so grateful that even if anyone else started blogging, they would like me.
What was the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?
I think the most difficult thing is that every time I shoot my work, it’s challenging for me because I’m a very camera-shy person and I’m not used to not talking a few words in front of the camera even when friends are making stories or something. It was very difficult for me to make a video because it involved talking to the camera and looking at the camera and it was also difficult when I received offers from major brands and went on shoots with them. Currently, I feel pretty comfortable speaking in front of the camera and shooting anywhere. However, it can be difficult for me to come up with creative content to post on social media while also taking care of my family, myself, and Instagram. I shoot my videos, edit them, apply my makeup, dress, and go somewhere by myself to post them. Many people assume that whenever we share a photo or a video, it must be very simple, but this is untrue. Both indoor and outdoor shoots require great mental stability because if you’re having trouble with your mental stability, it will be difficult for you to pose, shoot, and speak. All of these tasks are very difficult, despite what many people believe.
Did you have any professional help or did you create the blog yourself? And please let us know about the changes you felt post-blogging?
As I already stated, I work alone and purchase and do videos alone. The majority of the time, 95 percent of the time, I work alone and completely by myself. The difference I noticed after I started blogging is like the most important thing I was like financially independent, the second thing I got was that I never thought I will be so confident in my life, but right now I’m a different person. I used to get bullied because of my skin color; people used to call me dark and all that shit and also about my health; people used to call me skinny. Now that I only think about myself, I think I’m rather gorgeous, and I should flaunt that and accept my flaws, so that’s how things have been.
A lot of people think that blogging is an easy way to make money online. Do you have some tips for those people who are interested in making money from the blog?
First of all, as I mentioned above, the blog is not easy. I want to give them some advice: be as genuine as you can, be yourself, showcase your talent, follow some proper steps, and be passionate about something. When you’re passionate about something, nothing can stop you from succeeding. I can say that I’m currently very independent in terms of my finances and emotional well-being. So, yeah, that’s how it goes.
How would you describe your style and is there a person who is a fashion inspiration to you?
I’d like to share my style with you. I try to keep it simple and minimal, but I also like to dress up and try new things occasionally. However, for the most part, I’m a very basic lover and very minimal person. For example, I like to wear high-waisted pants with a crop top, blazer, or pant top, jeans with heels, and minimal jewelry. Because of this, I believe that my personality best describes me. I admire Aakriti Ranagil because I can relate to her on a lot of levels. She makes content that is relatable and is kind to all of her followers. I don’t even feel like I follow her; instead, I feel like she’s like a friend to me because we’ve occasionally had conversations and she responds to all of the comments and direct messages. As a result, I’ve never felt like a follower.
When and how was your childhood? Please let us know about your schooling?
My childhood was very pleasant up until the point when I lost my father, at which point I fell into a deep depression. I remember being so upset that I couldn’t even stand it; I was so depressed that I stopped talking to people. Fortunately, I had a wonderful family wonderful mother, sisters, and cousins who helped me a lot and were always there for me. I always felt my father was there with me, so my childhood was nice with all of my cousins, all my aunt and my mom, my friends, my teachers, and everyone loves me like everyone. I was a really lucky child, and I think my dad gave me that luck when he left me every teacher loved me, my principal, my friends everyone, and my grandparents everyone was there except for my main part when I lost my dad.
What would you say is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger?
The best satisfaction, I suppose, comes when people dress up. Even if they are wearing only a t-shirt and jeans, joggers, or jeans, a good pair of slippers, a slider, or a shoe, that’s how I feel now that I am a fashion influencer. Everything I wear compliments me beautifully, and whenever there is a wedding, a party, or anything else, all of my friends come to me and follow my advice. I’m so grateful when people approach me and think about me for a job. I’m also grateful that I’ve worked with many brands here and with a regional channel in Bombay where I styled the host, who also happens to be my best friend, so thanks to all these little things, I feel like I have a lot going for me as a fashion influencer. The biggest fulfillment comes from the fact that so many people, even if there are 100 of them, admire my sense of style or something similar. They frequently text me without knowing each other and ask me questions like, “What should I wear on these?” and “Where did you get that?” All of these things make me feel proud that so many people admire me and that I have accomplished something I never thought I would.”
9. Is it too difficult to carry the aura of being a female blogger?
When I first started blogging, no one accepted me, but after that, there were a lot of people and a lot of girls more girls than boys, and more females than males. I don’t know how to respond to this difficult question without sounding like I’m carrying a stigma for being a female blogger or something. There are good and bad aspects to everyone, therefore their people tried to talk negatively about me and everything. On the other hand, their people were the ones that inspired me, valued my work, and treated me with respect rather than ignoring me.
