Wow, Sparkle With Surabhi completed "3" successful years on 30th, September 2013. I started blogging in 2011, when I suddenly fell in love with the phenomena called "Beauty Blogging."
The first beauty blog I fell in love was "Temptalia" loved her video's and blogs on MAC and Urban Decay and couldn't stop myself from buying all those products :P; Also Makeup and Beauty Blog. The third vlog I fell in love with was Makeup by Tiffany. I still think she is one of the one most beautiful women in world, she always looks beautiful and an Indian Blog called "The Indian Vanity Case" by Cynthia - Z which I started to like a lot and I am not surprised that her blog has awarded "COSMOPOLITAN - Beauty Blog of the Year - 2013". I also liked some blogs like Wise- She, Beauty unleashed by Deeptima, Coralista.com which are also Indian Beauty Blogs!!
I got inspired by reading all these blogs and I thought that I can pretty much write a successful beauty blog because I was in the beauty business too.
I was 15 When I one my first beauty pageant Miss NIIT and at the age of 16 I was crowned the May Queen at the May Queen Ball and also Miss Beautiful Complexion and Miss Photogenic in the same Pageant. I won 8 beauty pageant's in total I was also Miss Noida 2004 and Miss Delhi Miss Perfect "10" in the same year which was a state level beauty contest.
Since I was a print model my first magazine cover was "Women Era" at the tender age of 16 in the Year 1999; I was in high school then. So I thought that since I have won so many beauty pageant's and I was a model and now I am fashion designer why not write my own beauty blog and tell people about my own experience about beauty products and latest that we create at our boutique and in the fashion business.
Here are some of the photos that I am sharing for the first time in my life!!

It only seems just like yesterday when I published my first blog about "The New Garnier Pimple Relief Roll On" and a post named as "Getting Married,What should you know?" since then there no was no looking back suddenly some beautiful people had fallen in love with my blog and was getting 30 hits everyday. Another post Suparna Trikha and her herbal products became a rage. Every women wanted to meet her and I got calls that is there any way could fix up an appointment with her for them. :)
Many of the times when I was late in posting; I got messages "Keep Blogging!!!" Thank you, for pepping me up, Would not have done it without your support and love. Thank-you your liking my blog so much. You have NO have idea how much it means to me.
I kept on blogging till it I dropped dead and the main turn around point or milestone was when I wrote a blog post about Fresh Floral Jewellery and wedding's. I had designed floral jewellery for my Sister-In -Law suddenly I was getting calls from all around the world and women appreciated floral jewellery so much .. Thank-you!! Many women called me up so that I could I design floral Jewellery for them and that's when I thought that If can design clothes why not Floral Jewellery? and I started doing just that and got almost 1000 enquiries about it with in a couple of days that was a phenomenal response!! :)))
And I got a call from prominent PAN INDIA Magazine called "Wedding Vows" who wanted to do a blog article on me and flora jewellery that was such an honour. I couldn't believe it at all that floral jewellery concept will become so famous...and they published an article on me in August, 2013 issue as Floral Jewellery Designer.
So, I started two more blogs www.ambiancekreators.blogspot.in for my boutique and www.surabhifloraldesigns.blogspot.in for floral jewellery designs.
Recently, I got invited by an event with Ripple Links For Wella Hair Colour this event was Invitation Only for Leading beauty bloggers were Invited there... and guess who I met there ? The very women who inspired me write "Anamika from Wise She" and "Deeptima from Beauty Unleashed by Deeptima".
