This is me and my darling Maya on our first Mother’s day

Hello and welcome to ‘Starring Maya’, a Sydney based lifestyle blog.

As you may have guessed this blog is named after my daughter Maya, who is a crazy little 2 year old slice of heaven. I started blogging when she was only a few weeks old, around the time when she started to sleep in more than 2 hour blocks.

Which for me meant that I started to function a little more normally in my brain, only to realise that I needed an outlet and human interaction without having to get dressed and leave the house.

Blogging saved me. I felt like I was contributing to the world albeit in my pyjamas and from the couch, but didnt need to feel guilty that I loved staying home.

I write mostly about my experiences in the Costume Industry, tips and how to’s on wardrobe style and of course, being a mother to a little toddler.

I also love to blog about everything in between because sometimes, i just want to write what’s in my head and not what I’m supposed to.

A few more tidbits about me:

  • I love being a mum
  • I hate cleaning the house but I do it so my daughter is not rolling in filth
  • I despise fake people especially in the fashion industry.
  • If you don’t look at me in the eye when you first meet me, you’ll never be a friend.
  • I love jewellery in a morbidly unhealthy addictive way
  • I am a feminist
  • I swear a lot
  • I am Indian, was born in Fiji and moved to Australia when I was 10.
  • I refuse to tolerate people who are racist, sexist or homophobic.
  • I secretly love dressing as daggy as I can when I’m at home.
  • I love Disney movies and still believe in magic.
  • As Mindy kaling’s mother told her, I believe I have the same entitlement as a rich white man.

The end.

Thank you for reading and it was so lovely to meet you:) Feel free to say hello and tell me a few things about you in the comments below:)
