About Me

My attempt at being sexy. Bahahaaa!

Okay, soooo…what to say about me? Hmm, well I’m from Florida and I’m 26 years old. But I don’t act like it. I don’t take myself seriously and because of that, I have no problem embarrassing. In fact I do so frequently. No lie.

I started Clumps of Mascara in the summer of 2007 right before I graduated from college. I was going through that, “OMG, what am I going to do with the rest of my life?” panic that most college students go through and channeled a lot of energy into make-up, something I NEVER took notice to before. My newfound love for beauty inspired me to start a blog that would help me track my journey into different products and brands. I never had any intentions to be a “beauty blogger”. Or to have people read my blog. But before I knew it, people were reading. And actually…liking my quirky newbie-esque approach to beauty.

I am not a professional nor am I a self-proclaimed “beauty guru”. Far from it. But I think that’s what makes my approach to beauty unique. I don’t mind posting my mistakes. In fact, I do so frequently. And even though I have reviewed over 100 of them, mascaras aren’t the only focal point on Clumps.

I’m pretty obsessed with lipglosses too.

My goal is to inspire women all over to love the beauty that they already posses. To love their hair textures, skin complexions, large lips, big eyes, small eyes and everything in between. Clumps of Mascara means admitting that, “Yeah…I’m not perfect. But I am me. I am beautiful. And I rock.” If I’ve inspired one, then I’ve done my job. While I get emails from ladies thanking me, I really want to thank them. It was this blog that gave me purpose and re-ignited my passion for writing. It was Clumps that went from a blog to a business that sent this small city girl on trips to meet celebrities and speak at conferences. But I’m not JUST a blogger. I work a full-time job, volunteer throughout Orlando, help teach natural beauty classes and freelance as a photographer and writer.

In addition to being a top beauty blog, Clumps of Mascara has had the opportunity to work brands like Maybelline, COVERGIRL, Sally Hansen, Clinique and China Glazes.  We’ve attended fashion shows, industry beauty events and trade shows. We’ve got an awesome fanbase of readers from New Jersey to New Zealand. I say “we” because I’m not doing this on my own. I’ve got amazing designers, IT professionals, mentors, freelance writers and ambassadors that help me with Clumps.

Life is busy, crazy and sometimes demanding, but it’s beautiful.

It’s funny what happens when you stop freaking out and start listening to that voice inside yourself. Doors open and opportunities start flying in.

Love it and love yourself. I’m just an email away. Shoot one and say Hi. Unless you’re a creeper. No creepers please. :cool:

XOXO,
