What is the Story Behind your Blog Name?
While brainstorming on the name for my blog I knew that the name had to be something that reflects my personality and showcases my entire lifestyle.I remember sitting in a cafe once with a friend and writing down options for a name on a tissue paper. It was something I really gave thought to, so much so I involved my entire family in the process and finally it was my mom who suggested the name. Social Cravings as a name was just perfect. I wanted a name that people could easily connect with and relate to. Social Cravings stands for everything you and I socially crave for and I hope I am able to inspire and excite people through my own experiences.
In Bollywood, according to you who is a true Fashion Icon?
Sonam Kapoor comes to my mind at once – she is edgy and experimental. Whether its kitsch, diva or ethnic she puts everything together perfectly. May be she gets it from her father, among the men he still stands out.
Describe your Fashion Style in one word?
I’d say eclectic most of the time. I wear what I fancy and I like to dress to the occasion. When formal, I’d say classy.
Your Favourite Cuisine?
I love Thai Food, actually all of Asian Cuisine. Also momos and a well made biryani can tempt me anytime, anywhere.
Your Favourite Accessory?
Accessories must always enhance whats already there. I like to wear big and bold statement pieces, especially rings.
ABOUT Shivani Trehan
Born and brought up in New Delhi, Shivani Trehan did her schooling from DPS RP Puram. After a double graduation in business and dance ( Bharatnatyam) she became a part of the launch team for the lifestyle TV channel NDTV Good Times. With a desire to enhance her skills and knowledge, she went on to pursuing her post graduation from Manchester Business School. Once back she gave into the temptation of a steady job and worked with Turner International with English movie channels like HBO (Home Box Office) & WB (Warner Brothers). She worked there for a period of 4 years and by this time her passion for food was at the forefront. She then quit her corporate job, traveled for two months and after a lot of soul searching on her future, she came to realize she wanted to become a food blogger and a fit one at that. With that direction in mind, she went to completely changing her lifestyle. With a lot of will power and determination she controlled her diet and worked out extensively. In the process she ended up losing 10kgs over a period of 5 months. This already made her an inspiration among friends and family and now there was no stopping her in achieving her other goals. Today she has many followers and covers not only food, but also fashion, travel, fitness and beauty as a complete lifestyle blogger.
She says “Even though I was in media I never faced the camera before – even I didn’t know I’d love it so much and now every day is new day of discovering myself.”
