Oh hey. Thanks for stopping by and all that.
In case you didn’t know, Mascara Every Saturday is the cooler, edgier avatar of Bombay Bubble – the style diary of a twenty-something fashion writer from Mumbai. I started Bombay Bubble six years ago, as an attempt to develop and maintain a creative outlet after university and before I started an internship at a fashion magazine.
However, six long years later, I’m not the same girl who started out blogging with a passion for sequins and leopard print. My growth game is strong, and Mascara Every Saturday is my way of re-introducing myself.
I now live in rainy Manchester with my husband who I met off Tinder and our two poodle-cross fur babies, Poppy and Millie. I split my time between blogging, travelling as often as I can and working as a personal stylist at a charity that helps women in need go back to work by setting them up with lit interview digs and training so they can start an exciting, independent new chapter of their lives like the #Girlbosses and megababes they are. Overall, some pretty empowering, rewarding stuff that I’m hella passionate about.
I would like Mascara Every Saturday to be the home of the underrepresented every girl, because I believe that women who are either petite or plus sized have plenty of representation in the bloggosphere. However, it is the rest of us and the majority of us, the women between size 12 and 16, that you rarely see gracing your Instagram feed. Which is sad, because we all need a role model slash style mused rolled into one, amiright?
Oh, and in case you were wondering about my new blog name, it’s a quote by Lena Dunham (who happens to be the voice of our generation and stands for everything I was saying about realistic role models for women) on her TV show, Girls, which just happens to be one of my all-time favourites. Watch it here.
I’d love to know what you think of the new blog, so shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or shout me on social media I’m @MascaraEverySaturday on Facebook and Instagram and @MascaraEverySat on Twitter.
