Tell us about yourself:
Dani- “When you’re thinking city lights, morning espresso, and up to date fashion trends you’re describing me to a T! While a majority of my life consists of school, friends, family, and extracurriculars; that doesn’t effect the amount of time I spend on the social internet. I was thrilled when starting a blog became a reality with Diti. Chic Neat and Sweet is my way of sharing the latest trends, recipes, and ideas for a full and healthy lifestyle. My favorite part of blogging is the photography-I love setting up a scene with props and then going back and editing the photos.”
Aditi- “Blogging at first seemed like something that I could only dream of. But, now I’m so glad that I started one with my friend! My favorite things to do include baking, shopping, yoga and makeup! My friends think of me as a perfectionist which is why I take a long time to do anything, such as my makeup, hair, homework or cleaning my room! I also enjoy helping others and spreading my knowledge to better the world. I have so many tips and tricks to share with you! I love being Chic Neat and Sweet and I hope that you will too! Remember life is too short to do nothing.”
What inspired you to start your blog?
We are currently high school students, which means we sit in a desk 7 hours a day staring at the clock waiting for school to get out, waiting for the weekend, waiting for summer. One day we were walking in PE class and started talking about how boring school was and how we wished we had something that gave us a purpose! This got us talking about our lifelong dreams. Come to find out we both aspired to have a blog someday, and that’s when it hit us… WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE SOMEDAY?! We are constantly waiting for something to happen so why not make a change for the better! So we created Chic Neat Sweet!
What is your blog about?
Our mission for Chic Neat Sweet is to give our readers a place to read useful, inspirational, and positive content. Chic is referring to fashion, hair, and beauty ideas. Neat is all about lifestyle, school, and organization ideas. Sweet refers to recipes for breakfast, lunch/dinner, and dessert. In our ‘Sincerely, Aditi and Dani’ category, you will find motivation, inspiration and some ideas to make your heart happy.
Who is your favorite blogger?
Dani- My favorite blogger is Niomi Smart. Her blog revolves around fashion, food, beauty, health, and travel. I love the style of her blog, and the content. All of her posts are quick, enjoyable, and helpful. She is also a YouTuber and her videos are just as enjoyable. I also love the photography on her posts and throughout the blog, and how they really brighten up the site!
Aditi- My favorite blogger has to be Shelly from her blog Cookies and Cups. Her blog is all about food and specially focuses on dessert items which is why she started her blog. I especially love her writing style which includes humor and is fun to read!
When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
Dani- Honestly, it changed all the time! Ranging from president, professional gymnast, to teacher or doctor! Even though I didn’t know what profession I specifically wanted to do, I did know that I wanted to do something that inspired and/or helped others.
Aditi- At first, it was to be a singer. Then, as I got older, I was more involved with nature and caring for the environment. But, now I’m leaning more towards marketing and programming. Oh, and blogging!!
Give a tip for other bloggers:
Dani- My tip would be to be yourself. You will always write honest, meaningful, worthwhile posts if you know what you are talking about… and enjoy it. Sometimes we get so caught up in creating content that you think people want to read, when that isn’t the point. Being a blogger means you have something that you want to share with others, whether it is your lifestyle, a hobby, your travels, it doesn’t matter. Share what you want to talk about and the views and followers will come.
Aditi- Start slow, be patient and stay consistent. I know, it’s tough! But, you can’t expect to have 100 followers right out of the gate! It all comes down to how much work you are willing to put in. It will reflect on your content and your blog overall.
What is the best advice someone has ever given you?
Dani- Know yourself, be yourself, believe in yourself, and don’t care what anybody thinks of you.
Aditi- “Life’s not about who’s first. It’s about who’s the best.”
What is the destination of your dream vacation?
Dani- I would love to tour Europe, especially Paris and Italy! I think the attractions and sites would be amazing to see in person.
Aditi- Bora Bora and Tahiti! I’m more of the beach girl!
Apple or Samsung?
Dani- Apple all the way! It is so much easier to use and save information on! All of my tech items are Apple.
Aditi- Apple! Best thing on planet Earth.
What is the scariest thing you have ever experienced while traveling?
Dani- One time when I was in the ocean, a puffer fish puffed up underneath me! It definitely got my adrenaline going.
Aditi- Rough turbulence for about an half hour! Our plane was hit by a storm suddenly, so we got to experience being on the verge of possible death at 4 am in the morning. So much fun!
Top 3 most beautiful beaches you have ever been to:
Dani- The only beach I really remember loving was Ko Olina beach in Hawaii! The water was a beautiful blue color that was clear! It was also a sand beach which I enjoyed since I am not a fan of rocky beaches!
Aditi- Can’t decide! I loved them all!
Marvel or DC
Dani- Honestly, I haven’t seen or read the comics so I can’t truly decide. However, I do know Thor was played by Chris Hemsworth so I am leaning more towards Marvels! (:
Aditi- Oh, this is a tough one! But, I’m gonna have to say DC because of Captain America and my favorite, Wonder Women!
