Brittany: Wife, Blogger, & Mom-to-Be


Be Inspired by Brittany!

When people ask me why I chose to start a beauty blog, I tell them that beauty blogging chose me. I started blogging at Clumps of Mascara 5 years ago and had no idea that it would take off the way it has. Blogging gives me the opportunity to combine all of my loves; writing, technology, beauty (obviously, lol) and communicating with people all over the world. It’s a good time to be a beauty blogger for many reasons but mainly because brands are considering us to reputable sources. Any time I feel as if I haven’t done “enough” in my 27 years of life, I simply log-on to or read the countless emails I get from women who tell me how a lipstick I’ve recommended has made them feel more confident. I’ll be the first to declare that cosmetics isn’t a necessity. If anything, I would consider it to be an accessory and it’s amazing what just a touch of blush or swipe of nail polish can do to make a woman feel better about herself.

After college, I served an AmeriCorps service term and then went to work into state government. I became complacent and was under the impression that I’d be stuck working jobs that I didn’t like just to pay the bills. I just knew that I’d never be able to be my own boss. I was too young. I didn’t have experience. I didn’t know where to start. It’s so sad how we can be our biggest critics. One day it clicked. I realized that I didn’t have to have a lot of money, time or experience to be my own boss. Little by little, I began taking this “blogging thing” more seriously. I went to conferences to network and would spend every available moment crafting my brand. I stopped making excuses. I realized that I didn’t have to live in New York City to be taken seriously as a beauty editor. I didn’t wait for someone to “discover” me. Instead, I continue to work diligently and passionately in hopes that one day I can be my own boss full-time. In the meantime, I’ll continue to let my little beauty light shine for the world to see.

Why was Brittany selected?

I stumbled upon Brittany's blog during my nail polish research.  Her writing style is consistent, unique, and down to earth. I enjoyed reading her posts and product reviews. I decided to feature Brittany when her mascara review resulted in a feature of her blog logo and name at Target stores! Yes, you can stumbled upon her mark at Target.  I have many friends who want to become bloggers. Unfortunately, many start and after a few posts they abandon their blogs. I'm sharing Brittany's story to inspire aspiring bloggers to stick to it because blogging is a reputable media outlet and you can gain a loyal following and even national recognition.... just like Brittany!  Brittany is fully dedicated to her passion and has found her unique voice in the blogosphere... and so can you!
