My name is Ruma Begum and I am a fashion blogger currently residing in Detroit, MI.
Sometimes its can very monochromatic but most of the time its just boho-chic. I think its because I grew up in such an eclectic town, its a lot to do with the way I style myself.
What Mantra That You Believe in?
Starve the ego.
Feed the soul.
I began blogging years back as a hobby and it eventually became a business working with companies as the followers grew. As for software testing, I began by watching my elder brother do it and picked it up along the way. Eventually I became a tester myself.
I am a software tester by day and blogger by night.
What makes you smile the most?
Kindness. Watching others being emotionally supportive towards others and myself.

Her Mom’s beauty advice
Growing up my mother was very keen on the way we presented ourselves. I think this made me to be the way I am.
How she got started in make-up
Its a funny story. I used to be the biggest tom-boy. While all my friends did their hair and makeup, I’d wear eyeliner and call it a day. It wasn’t maybe until mid-college, I started to dab into makeup. Then came the summer of contour. Probably 3 years back, I started to play with anastasia beverly hills contour palette and it became a fun hobby.
ULTIMATE Beauty Icon
For fashion its definitely Sabyasachi Mukherjee right now. Everything he launches I drool over.
As for beauty: Audrey Hepburn and Rihanna. Mix them both you have me 🙂
