Mattie Mention: Brooke of Just B

In the spirit of spring and all the awesome bloggers I’ve gotten to know so far this year, I wanted to share them with you – my readers. I’ve gotten to meet them through Full Time Fabulous, FBFF or just plain ole blog surfin’. I came across this next blogger during the Full Time Fabulous competition. Brooke’s blog, Just B, was so engaging and original that I’ve been a fan since. I got the chance to ask her some questions (and she had some great answers.) Check her out and be sure to visit Just B and show her some love!

Mattie: What is Just B Blog all about and why did you start?
Brooke: Every day I would spend endless amount of time online shopping and finding great deals or fun trends that I wanted to tell my friends about. I started Just B as a way to share my thoughts, inspirations and tips when it came to fashion. It quickly grew to my nail polish and beauty addictions as well. It all began as a creative outlet for myself and has grown to be a place where I continue to share my thoughts and inspirations but also share tips, how-to’s and product reviews.

M: What’s the best part about blogging?
B: I love how accessible blogging is. I can do it from anywhere and anyone can read it. What I personally have gained the most from blogging is the community of bloggers I have developed relationships with from networking events or from just twitter.

M: If possible, would you blog full time?
B: Absolutely! Though sometimes I feel as if I already do blog full time. Even when I had a 9-5 or was still in school, I spent the same time I did working hard at work and school on the blog because I want it to be enjoyable for everyone.

M: Where do you see Just B in a year? What steps are you taking to get there?
B: I hope to see Just B readership grow and develop a strong community of readers that communicate to me and other readers through social media. I want it to be a place to ask questions, give suggestions and share. I try to create questions that engage my readers in my post that will encourage them to join the conversation. Just B isn’t one sided, its from me to you.

M: Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
B: This is a hard question because I find new bloggers all the time that inspire me! Though from the beginning Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere has inspired me with her consistency and amazing photos.

And I am currently loving the new Kate Spade tumblr blog. Huge source for bright colors and inspiration!

M: Finding inspiration can be difficult on a daily basis. Where do you find your inspiration?
B: I have over 100 notes in my iPhone from me quickly jotting down an idea that came to me during traffic or in a movie. If I am really struggling for inspiration I find myself shopping or in a beauty store. There is nothing like new jewelry or a nail polish to drag you out of your blogging rut.

M: When people visit Just B what do you want them to take from it?
B: I hope they are inspired and want to try the trends or products I suggest on their own. I write it all to share with them and hope they are daring to try new things!
