Today we’d like to introduce you to Tandya Stewart.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Tandya. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Before I had my blog, I was on Instagram. I started to grow a following and from there I decided to create a blog. My very own outlet where I can post all things that I love, and what I am inspired by. SimplyTandya was born. I didn’t start the blog as a career, I started it as a hobby. I took all my photos on my iPhone and didn’t have a particular style. Fast forward three years and I am still blogging. I am still able to post images of my outfits, travel, and food, and I have made a career out of it. The only difference is I have upgraded my iPhone to a DSLR camera.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I feel like it has been a smooth ride for me. With each year you learn and grow. Two of the most important things that I have learned is that it is important to be organized and know your worth!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Simply Tandya – what should we know?
My business is a fashion and lifestyle blog. SimplyTandya is becoming a brand of its own. I am my own brand. In the past three years, I have been featured in major publications such as Marie Claire, New York & Company and Who What Wear. I have also collaborated with REVOLVE, INTERMIX, Gap, River Island and many more.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I remember when I first started blogging, Aimee Song from Song of Style actually reached out to me to be her intern! Although our emails were very brief, she picked me out of a crowd and that really stuck with me! I honestly wouldn’t be where I am without my sister and my boyfriend. They are the ones who shoot all of my images.
