We caught up with the lovely blogger Sameera, also known as Miss Mulberry, in Dubai and asked her a few questions about herself and her work. And here is what she had to say…
1) Tell us a little something about yourself, Who is Sameera?
I am a fashion blogger from Scotland, UK and have been blogging for fun for around 2 years. I started blogging because lots of girls would ask me for outfit details on Instagram and also because I took so many pictures I needed somewhere to put them. There’s only so much you can spam on Instagram before people start getting sick of you!
2) What do you want yo be known for?
I guess I don’t have anything particular that I WANT to be known for. I know I am known for putting together affordable outfits for girls who want to be stylish yet modest at the same time. I would want to be known for someone that is relatable and approachable too.
3) What makes you special?
That I have the Pakistani in me from my parents but also a huge amount of Scottish because it’s where I was born and where I have spent my entire life. But now I live in Dubai so I have all these amazing cultures in my life that are all mixed together and make me the person that I am. I am also quite kooky so I guess you could say I’m a bit ‘special’ is that sense too!
4) Who is your fashion inspiration?
Blogger Sazan Barzani from the States. Deepika Padukone from Bollywood, more for how she carries things off. Victoria Beckham and the likes of Twiggy from the 60s. My list is endless! I love them all! I wear so many different things and don’t have one particular style so I guess I am inspired by any confident woman that works what she wears!
5) What do people remember the most after meeting you?
My accent. Also the fact that I talk a lot.
6) Advice to new bloggers
Just be yourself and do what you are good at. There are so many bloggers out there that if you try and copy someone else then you’re not putting anything new out there that will tempt readers to come to you. Be yourself, be creative and give your readers something to think about!
