What makes you a B.A.D Girl?
“The fact that I am unafraid to be myself.”
Tell us a little bit about you?
“Wife. Blogger. Writer. Daughter. Sister. Friend. God-fearing. Flawed, but beautiful. Not so sure, but fearless. Sports lover. Dancing queen. Very amateur photographer. A pretty solid public speaker. Someone who’s inspired and hopefully inspiring as well.”
What inspires you?
“My dreams. That one thing I have yet to accomplish. And I like that. I never really want to be completely comfortable – happy, yes & I am – but never comfortable. The moment that happens you become stagnant and no longer inspired.”
What do you for a living?
“I am a full-time blogger/writer at mattieologie.com. It’s my “9 to 5″ except only better. It’s become a full-fledged brand. I’ve gotten the chance to meet so many different people and really cultivate an audience that is continuously growing. It’s grown into a newsletter, a monthly theme, an online radio show and I’m excited to see what other dreams I’ll make a reality because of it.”
Do you have a favorite current fashion trend?
“The tribal and African prints making a starring appearance in 2011 fashion. It’s fearless.”
How would you describe your personal style?
“Womanly. I certainly dress for other women and I always make it my business to wear a conversation piece. Great for networking. You may not always like it, but I’ll always make you look. For the most part I always wear my clothes; from turbans to dresses to jeans & skirts. I never let them wear me.”
Advice for Style Me B.A.D readers pursuing their goals?
“Don’t just prepare for the position you have, but also for the position you want. Greatness doesn’t happen overnight. We have to remember that when you plant a seed, it needs to be deeply rooted and watered regularly for it to bloom. Everyone’s season will come, you just have to be prepared for it when it does. BE CONSISTENT. Consistency kills competition.”
