That’s the purpose of this blog. Each time you read Mattieologie, I hope I encourage you to live what you love. It’s a place where I – Mattie James, Atlanta based lifestyle blogger – share with you – the readers – what I like, where I shop, what I wear, who I admire and how I live my life. But in a nutshell, Mattieologie is where I live what I love through my personal style.

I sprinkle touches of Mattie on everything because I decided that if I was gonna do this, I was going to do it by being my genuine self and celebrate the things I love on a daily basis.

I’ve always been the type of girl to enjoy the things that make her feminine: dresses, make up, shoes, jewelry, and pretty nails. Once I started blogging about them, I couldn’t stop. Posts went from sporadic to weekly then daily. And then the brand of Mattieologie was born. When I started this blog in 2010, I was totally clueless about blogging & social media yet eager to learn more. Now, as a wife, mom & freelance writer I learn a little about myself everyday through the many hats I wear while sharing my story via blogging and social media.

Ok, so why is Mattieologie.com worth your while? Well, I was a top ten finalist for Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous blogger competiton, have been mentioned in The New York Times and was named one of ESSENCE.com’s Forty Fab Fashion Bloggers (#8). I’m also the style editor for Cocoa Fab. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with brands such as Macy’s, RACHEL Rachel Roy, H&M, Club Monaco, Cotton and more. If that isn’t enough, you can always check out my press page to see where else I’ve been featured + mentioned.

But accolades aside, the goal is to highlight and showcase the things that make me special, make me smile and that make sense in this space called Mattieologie. Not because someone else is doing it or because it’s the latest trend but because somewhere along the line I fell in love wearing it, loving it, doing it or living it. Hopefully, I encourage you to do the same.

This is Mattieologie.com. Where I live what I love.
