Hey there! My name is Britney and I am the blogger over at All Things Britney Lee! I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV and I currently live there with my husband, Brodie. (He is the awesome-est dude ever, you can ask anyone who knows him!) In my day to day life, I work as a licensed hairstylist/makeup artist who loves making people feel pretty! Some of my many other passions include: singing loudly, making clothing and jewelry, and then teaching others how to make things too! Something else you MUST know about me is that I am a total nerd and I love magical things like Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, unicorns, fairies, and chocolate.
1. When did you begin blogging?
I actually started my blog a year ago exactly! I didn’t do much with it at first, but February 2014 is when I first registered my blog. I didn’t actually start blogging regularly until July 2014.
2. How did you decide on a name for your blog?
I am a multi-passionate person and I have to have ALL my passions in my life otherwise I don’t feel complete. So I decided to use my name for my blog so that I could post about anything and everything!
3. What inspired you to start your blog?
I have been a follower of blogs for quite a while, and I loved how much they inspired me to create! All the D.I.Y. and sewing blogs made me want to make and all the beauty and style blogs inspired me to try new makeup and clothing pairings! I loved how these blogs made me feel and I decided that I want to be that kind of person for others! All I want to do in life is inspire others to do things that they didn’t think they could do.
4. What is your favourite thing about running a blog?
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MAKING FRIENDS. That is my most favourite thing. Every blogger that comments, likes, or follows I take a look at and want putting in all the hard work to create an amazing post. I am somewhat of a perfectionist, so I get a little crazy when I write a post, but I think it just shows that I really care about blogging! And others seem to appreciate my thoroughness lol.
5. What are your must read blogs?
Pearls & Scissors – This blog is literally my favorite. Hanna has all the same loves as I do: sewing, refashioning, D.I.Y., jewelry and beauty. I feel like we are soul sisters and her blog is kinda what I want mine to grow up to be like.
I read so many blogs that I love, but some of my long-time favorites are:
A BEAUTIFUL MESS – I love their blog aesthetic and photos, and their tutorials are what I aspire to create!
The Beauty Department – They have the best beauty tutorials! They are always inspiring me to try out new looks with hair and makeup.
Merrick’s Art – Merrick makes the coolest sewing tutorials! And she makes it so easy to follow along. I totally want to make every single thing she does lol.
Cotton & Curls – More amazing sewing tutorials that I want to copy!
6. What do you want to achieve with your blog?
I want to make so many friends! And I eventually want to have kiddos and stay home with them so having a blog to have a creative outlet with and maybe make a little money with would be the dream!
7. What advice do you have for new bloggers? Tips, pointers etc.
I wrote a post last September giving all my tips to new bloggers (and not so new bloggers!) and I still stand by them today. You can read my tips here!
8. What keeps you blogging?
I really love connecting with people and sharing things with others! If I didn’t love those things then I’m sure I wouldn’t continue!
Quick fire questions:
9. What was the last song you downloaded or bought?
I haven’t purchased any music for months and months! So the last song I bought was ‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk, LOL! *sings* We’re up all night to get lucky!
10. If you could invite any three celebrity guests or famous people to a dinner party, who would they be?
Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson. My ultimate Girl Crush/BFF dinner party!
11. Favourite colour?
I love all shades of blue/green. Teal, turquoise, mint, cobalt, emerald…
12. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Stuffing my face with sweets and watching movies and Netflix.
13. Finish this sentence. I wish…
…I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy…
14. Where else can readers find you online?
I’m all over the place! Let’s be friends please!
15. Lastly, is there anything extra you’d like to mention you haven’t already?
