‘Straight out of the gym to the high streets. Let’s talk athleisure!’

Komal is bold and confident. She is just as gorgeous when flaunting a saree as she’s in her sportiest look. ‘How can one be so versatile!’ — you’ll wonder as you go through her Marsplay feed.

Well, here’s a secret. She’s got a strong athletic edge to her that lets her pull off any look with grace. A national level gold medalist with two gold and one silver medals Bharat Ratan Yoga, she’s one impressive personality!

We found her perfect person for our athleisure lookbook series and that’s where the adventure began!

Here’s a sneak-peak into the scenes behind the lookbook shoot.

Prachi talks about the inspiration behind the Athleisure look-book

Prachi, the creative head for the Athleisure lookbook says she has forever been inspired by Gigi Hadid’s take on athleisure.

“No one wears athleisure quite like Gigi Hadid. For this lookbook, I had her iconic looks in my mind.

Of course, when we started working, the ideas started evolving and we including everything from a jazz dancer outfit to a Parisian style outfit. It was so much fun working with Komal.”

Hello awesome people, hope you all are doing great!

As you all know, recently, we had organised a Makeup Party in Marsplay HQ which was super fun with our active community members & amazing makeup artists — Savleen and Anushka.

One of our community members — Karishma Shrivastava has written a detailed blog post about this event. So, we couldn’t resist ourselves from reposting it.

Really, nothing feels better than getting showered with love from our community members.

So come on, give it a read!

“I got a great opportunity to be a part of the makeup-party event held by Marsplay, a community of bloggers. I am really grateful to them for choosing me to be a part of it. Undoubtedly, the event came out to be super successful.

These pictures tell it better than I can.

I chose ethnic theme to embark grace. So in this look, you can see me wearing an orange colour suit. I got this suit from Ameenabad, a wonderful market in Lucknow. The pleasant colour of the suit makes it appealing and the delicate intricacies add more to its beauty. The orange chooridar leggings and orange dupatta make the complete look a mono-tone beauty.

Since the suit was plain and unicoloured, I paired it up with heavy earrings. These earrings I bought from Sarojini Nagar Market, New Delhi. Long, oxidised earrings have always been my type and usually go with every ethnic wear.

I carried black stilletos that I bought from Ajio.com. You can also carry sandals or jootis with these kind of suits.

Coming to make-up, honestly I am not a too-much makeup kind of person but I was awestruck by the makeover I got by the amazing makeup artist, Anushka Khurana in the event. She gave me a smoky sparkled eye make-up which enhanced my eyes and complemented my entire get-up.

For hair-do I got my hair plaited into Dutch braids. You may keep your hair open or you can try French braid too.

This shoot was by far one of the best experiences for me. You can shop my other looks on the Marsplay app if you like them. Download Marsplay App and become a Marsplayer now!

TOP (Tip Of the Post) : Never load up heavy suits with heavy accessories. Always keep heavy accessories with simple and light suits.

How Paavni earned over 3000 INR on Marsplay by posting regularly

Paavni’s MarsplFay Profile

There’s nothing that gives more happiness than writing success stories of our users. We built Marsplay to empower creators with great taste in fashion to have freedom to share their styles and monetise irrespective of their ‘follower count’.

With Paavni’s story among many others, we feel we’re closer to that vision.

Paavni is among our earliest (and the most active) users. She joined us under the Style Diva Internship program and started posting her styles regularly on the platform as a part of weekly tasks.

She has the kind of styling sense that quickly catches on and that’s led her to earn over 3000 INR on the platform.


Here’s what Paavni has to say about the experience —

“Once I started posting regularly, I was hooked to the platform.

In some cases, I was able to tag the exact products in my outfit, specially when I had purchased them from Myntra. That was exciting!

I think what works for me is that I put links to my looks on Marsplay in my bio and actively post stories about how my looks are available to shop on Marsplay App.

I do it for every look that I post on Instagram. And I think it people are more likely to buy those outfits when they see how I have styled it.

So, I try to capture that moment by letting them know they can shop that or a similar styled outfit.

It was really exciting to get my first sale! It’s been two months now that I have been posting regularly and I have got five sales and earned 3000 INR along with gaining a huge following.

People who discovered me through Marsplay have appreciated me a lot for my styles and that has given me the confidence to work hard on every look I create.

I love how engaging the entire community is and I connected with some great people here! I literally participate in all contests and all prompts because it’s so much fun!”




It’s been a super amazing journey for Paavni, and it’s largely because of the efforts she has put in promoting her styles on the platform.

We are waiting to write about more such success stories. Next one could be yours. Don’t you think? 😍


Marsplay Community comprises of the best hand-picked bloggers who share their styles on the platform to get recognised for their great sense of styling and to monetize from their social influence.

Learning 4 — Is Niche blogging the way to grow as a blogger


Hi everyone!

Last week’s super blogger session with Devansh introduced you to niche blogging to we decided to talk about it in detail in this week’s learning. So, here we go —

You can divide all blogs into two categories: lifestyle blogs and niche blogs.

These categories represent two conscious decisions that bloggers can make: I’m going to write about everything, or I’m going to write about one thing.

Bloggers have 2 choices: Write about everything, or write about one thing. #NicheBlogging

What do you mean by a niche blog?

Niche blogs are when you write about one thing, and one thing only. They are a blog with a one-track mind, having one purpose, one goal.

Niche blogging is where real traction and traffic happen for a blog.

Why you should start a niche blog?

Niche Blogs saves our time. We know which profile we need to check while reading on some certain topics. Like if we want to know more about boho style we usually read Kritika Khurana blogs, because we know she is into boho looks. Likewise if we want to know about silver jewellery, Komal Pandey is here to help us.

Komal Pandey Blogging about jewellery

Niche blog fits into a particular category and we find content on the topic we’re looking for.

  1. Niche Blogs Keep You On Track
  2. Niche Blogs Give You A Reliable Audience
  3. Niche Blogs Make It Easier To Monetize Your Blog
  4. Niche Blogs Expand Your Own Knowledge
  5. Niche Blogs Help You Stand Out From The Crowd

Tip: Even if you’re writing about every kind of fashion style. Make sure to have an answer, because when you attend sessions of big bloggers- they ask for your specialisation. And you really can’t say fashion as your specialisation, try to brief which fashion style represents you- weather street style, fusion wear or maybe just how you can make a high class fashion from street shopping. It will surely add a plus point to your intro.

For example, Devansh from The Dapper Street got his first collaboration with less than 2000 followers, because he had a niche- bow ties.

From Devansh’s blog

How To Start A Niche Blog

Starting a niche blog is not that difficult. It is all about how you do your research and planning for finalizing your blog’s niche.

What all points you should consider when you are about to chose your blog’s niche?

  1. Know your passion. Identify what things in fashion you have an inclination for.
  2. Go deep in that domain. Read existing blogs and educate yourself.
  3. Find your keyword niche. Start using those in hashtags so that brands related to that domain can discover you.
  4. Align your current blog to that niche. Make sure that at least one in three post is about that niche — be it headgear, accessories or a particular kind of style.
  5. Research the demand of that particular niche. Are people asking questions about it on social media? Is that niche trending or growing? Do people want to learn more about it?

This will help you narrow down on a niche that is best for you.

It’s not too late to rehab your blog and bring it back to a highly trafficked niche. 🙂

Not sure if you can be/want to be a niche blogger?

If you must have the freedom to write about other things outside of your niche, then do not worry. Being a niche doesn’t mean you can’t write/post about other things you love. It just means that there is something special about your blog that a certain section of fashion enthusiasts can connect to.

It’s just a way to define your special edge in the increasingly crowding space of fashion bloggers.


That’s it for now folks. Let’s discuss ideas for niche blogging in the community this week.

Let’s know if you enjoyed reading this blog post. This blog was compiled by your community curators Purnima Madan and Stuti Gupta. So, you can let them know if you loved it. ❤️️

Stay tuned for next week’s learnings.

Learning Blog 4 — Collaboration is the way to grow in early stages.


Getting collaborations initially is not at all an easy task.

You might have to message 100 of brands and then you will get 2–3 collaborations.

Being a blogger, the only thing you can do initially is to be good with your content. We have already shared a blog regarding how you can create good content and feed, hoping some of you would have applied those pointers.

If your content is good, have a little patience. Brands will see your content and you might get some of them.

Here are a few things that you can do —

1. Join apps that provide collaboration opportunities

Get registered on apps like Plixxo, which gives you renowned brand campaigns. Plixxo executes various type of campaigns. They have campaigns for small bloggers and for super bloggers too. So, you should be present on Plixxo.
Read more here about how to join Plixxo


2. Be added to whatsapp bloggers groups.

There you can also get few good collaborations. You can get many contacts of PRs from whatsapp bloggers groups. PRs also send messages for brand collaborations most of the time.
To be added in such Whatsapp groups, contact fashion bloggers who have been blogging about 2–3 years as they are sure to be connected with at least one such Whatsapp group.

3. Follow pages that publish about collaboration opportunities

Follow pages like bnbmag, where you get collaborations. Thebnbmag group is posting a lot about various collaborations these days. So, follow this page and start approaching the brands.

4. Learn how to message brands

The way you message brands for collaboration plays a big role. The introduction should be short and attractive. Also, should include your all social media handles and reach of your accounts.

As you grow, you can even consider creating a media kit.

A media kit is a document which shares everything a potential sponsor or marketer would need to know about your blog. It’s essentially a resumé, but for your website. A media kit should list a variety of things, such as your blog’s topics, statistics, collaboration options, and more. It is essential for making a good impression and landing more (and higher paying) collaborations.

You message and email should include the following —

  1. An introduction of yourself and your blog/blog topics (1–2 sentences).
  2. Why you love the brand or their products (1–2 sentences).
  3. A mention of the fact that you’d like to collaborate and why it would be a great fit (1–2 sentences).
  4. A call to action, such as, “would you like to hear the ideas I’ve thought of?” (1 sentence).
  5. Lastly, you’ll want to share your blog’s media kit with them, too. I recommend uploading it as a Google Doc and linking it in your email somewhere.

5. Collaborate with other bloggers.

Yes, it’s good because your followers will check out his/her page and vice versa.

This way you both can exchange your followers. You can also start a youtube channel with other blogger if you planning to start one. And give regular shoutouts to each other.

One example of successful collaboration along these lines is Pretty Little Things.


6. Start approaching small brands initially.

Message them instead of waiting for their message. You can propose a barter collaboration rather than paid.

Whether a brand is approaching you or not, you take a step further and approach small brand. Like message to those who have less number of followers and reach on Instagram.

For example, you can refer to this email sent to request a product for review —


Hi Jenna!

I hope your week is off to a great start! My name is Jess and and I write the Chicago-based blog, blankityblankblog.com. (You can see some recent posts of mine here, and here.)

Reaching out because I’m currently in planning mode for the 4th quarter and I’m working on quite a few upcoming beauty posts. In particular, I’ve been dying to try out [X beauty brand’s] facial oil and would be interested in doing a review on my site (typically valued at $300). My readers have been asking for a Q&A post on facial oils so I thought this would make for a great, organic partnership! Is that something that you would be open to?

Please let me know your thoughts–would love to team up together!

Best,
Jess

Before sending a message, do the following —

  1. Do a quick research about a brand. Are they collaborating with established bloggers only or with budding bloggers too?
  2. Check if the brand is collaborating with budding bloggers or not. If they are collaborating then you can also send your media kit for a collaboration. Kudos!

7. Make it a practice to always tag brands in your posts

Whenever you post on instagram always tag the brand so that other brands will come to know you already have collaborated with brands. You can do this in posts that were not exactly a collaboration also.

If you don’t tag your look then the brand will think you didn’t have a single collaboration or have no idea how collaboration work. Moreover, they also think that you might not have knowledge to create content as per their requirements.

8. Get your website active

Having a WordPress or Blogspot blog helps in establishing credibility as a blogger. There might be cases that the brand wants to give you a guest post to be posted on your website.

Most importantly, if you have a website then there might be chances of getting more collaborations.


That’s it for now folks. Let’s try to implement these points and discuss about them this week to learn and grow together.

Let’s know if you enjoyed reading this blog post. This blog was compiled by your community curators Purnima Madan and Stuti Gupta. So, you can let them know if you loved it. ❤️️

Learning blog 2 — Simple hacks to create content daily for your blog


Hello everyone!

How are you all doing? This week we decided to address one of your biggest concerns — creating great content for your blog everyday.

Here are some super cool ideas to experiment with for your blog. And the best part is that you can use these hacks simply at home or a nearby location. They won’t need huge investment of time!

1. Have an inspiration board

Inspiration is very necessary to create a good quality content. You can take reference from Pinterest and Magazines. Make your boards on Pinterest and save some poses which can be taken easily.

You can also save pictures that inspire you on Instagram in your Instagram collection.

Referring to this inspiration board will ensure that you never run out of ideas.


2. Search for the correct lightening

Light plays a very important role when it comes to taking a picture at home. Select the right time to shoot generally it is one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset.

Choose a location at your home near a window or in the balcony where you get some great natural light during those hours. Put on a great smile and you’re ready to have a great picture!

3. Make use of some cool props

You can purchase some cool stuff and use them at home like artificial flowers, a cute mug, small paper creatures et.al. There are at least a dozen simple creative ideas related to props that you can try at home.

Try using at least one prop while shooting or getting clicked. Be it a chair, a rose, fairy lights, normal plain bed sheet etc. Even you can get a picture clicked while using laptop, reading book or maybe just with a pencil. It’s all upto your creativity, how you can make use of props.

4. Create your own mini studio at home

You can also set up some fairy lights at home to create some amazing content. Fairy lights gives an amazing touch to the picture, just hold it and play with it.

You can even try creating a rainbow effect with the help of a compact disc.


You can make classic yet good backgrounds in your home only using daily newspapers, gift wrapping papers etc. Just place them in a good manner, and you are good to go for a easy yet different picture.

5. Take creative mirror selfies

Best part about these is that you need not depend on anyone to get these clicked.

Yes, you just need the long mirror here. Mirror selfies are the second best thing to post on Instagram. And the best thing about mirror selfies is that you can see your face expressions and body language. Give it a try if you haven’t yet.

6. Add accessories to make even the simplest looks interesting

Accessories can attract your audience attention. Use different type of accessories as per your look.

7. Identify the most clickable and accessible places around your home

Even in park, there are so many ways to recreate photos. Don’t try recreating looks of other bloggers. But definitely recreating some poses will always help to create good content.

13) Don’t try to take zoom in pictures.

It decreases your content quality. Instead, crop them after taking the picture.

14) Add magic to ordinary photos with great editing

Make sure to edit every picture in a good way. You can use apps like Snapseed, Facetune2 to edit your pictures. I bet, they won’t even take more than 3–4 mins to edit a picture. And if you are the one, who wants to post content in some color theme- then you can use Preview app.

15) Work on your expressions

Your expressions can bring life to your entire look and make your pictures amazing. For this, watch youtube videos to learn and get inspired.

Even if the background is not good, the expressions and editing can add that ‘wow factor’ and make your feed look super amazing.
