Here were my questions to this awesome girlie who is truly and inspiration:
Bravenezz: What initially inspired you to start a Vblog?
Missy Boo: I decided to start a v-blog because I was inspired by one of my favorite You Tube beauty guru JLoveMac1. She is a really funny vblogger and I loved her personality, she is so spunky, different and just herself. I remember there was a video where she had said that she felt misunderstood and that’s when it hit me. I was like OMG my whole life I felt like this girl, and for her to be on You Tube and be herself, I felt like I should try it and so I gave a it a shot, plus I had been watching You Tube videos two years prior to that, so I had been watching You Tube videos for a long time before I decided to start my own v-blog.
Bravenezz: What is the story behind you Vblog’s name?
Missy Boo: The name Missy Boo originated from my mom calling me missy and my friends and I always calling each other boo, I wanted a fun friendly name so that’s where Missy Boo originated from.
Bravenezz: What inspires your personal style in makeup and clothes?
Missy Boo: Color, I love colors. I don’t really have a favorite color. Colors are just beautiful, every color has something beautiful about it. Loving all colors is always good because you get to change up your style everyday. I feel like style has a way of bringing out your personality or how you are feeling each day.
Bravenezz: Do you have a routine when you shop for clothes and makeup?
Missy Boo: Oh man that’s a good question. I would say I am a cycle shopper which means, I’ll start with shoes one month and then I’ll get into nail polish another month, so I don’t get bored, I like to shop, but I feel that if I do it to much it would get tiring and I wouldn’t get as excited . So I have a cycle where I get shoes one month then I buy tops the next month so its not so chaotic.
Bravenezz: What are some of the biggest misconceptions people or followers have about you?
Missy Boo: Maybe that I know what I am doing cause I don’t, I think people may think that I know everything but in reality I am just learning as I go. When I get those thumbs down, I am always like dam they can’t cut me some slack I am trying here and I am learning as I go. It takes time to be perfect, but no one is perfect but I am trying and learning as much as I can and its fun.
Bravenezz: What is your must have or go to beauty product and outfit.
Missy Boo: Oh man that’s a tough one, I love flats don’t get me wrong high heels are beautiful, but flats are so comfortable, I have shoes at work and at home and I wear heels if I go out, but I love wearing my flats. Beauty products well it depends on my mood, I sometimes don’t even wear make up to work but I would say foundation or bb cream moisturizer would be my go to.
Bravenezz: What’s the most difficult thing about being a You Tube beauty guru with so many followers?
Missy Boo: Trying to stay true to yourself while making sure I am making other people happy. Sometimes people stop being who they are just to please others, I want to always be true to myself, I enjoy what I do and I want people to see me for who I am.
Bravenezz: What next for Missy Boo Channel?
Missy Boo: I have been doing this for two years now, I got sick in between, but I am better now just trying to catch up and learn about more about makeup and going to school for it, so that I can do more tutorials for my viewers.
Bravenezz: Is your family supportive of what you’re doing?
Missy Boo: Yes, my family is very supportive they know I love what I am doing. My husband is very supportive of what I do and I am trying to get him to do a video with me. My mom watches all my videos she lives in Arizona and it's the only way she sees me lol…
Bravenezz: What has been you biggest obstacle with your channel?
Missy Boo: I am actually in my obstacle right now is trying to build my channel and although I have a good size, I have a goal to grow my channel and it’s not for superficial reasons its because of credibility, you get better opportunities with a bigger support systems and that's were my challenge is to figure out what my viewers want to watch. Finding out what is going to get me a thumps up so that other people can see what I am doing. At the beginning I wanted to be different but it wasn’t attracting people, it wasn’t what they wanted to see or what they were used to seeing, so before I can do different things I have to start with what viewers like and are used to seeing.
Bravenezz: How do you deal with overwhelming response in your channel?
Missy Boo: Is not really overwhelming, but I do try to respond and I do want to make sure that I answer their questions, I do try my best I really do.
Bravenezz: What tip or advise do you give your viewers if they want to start their own You Tube channel or just tips or advice for life in general?
Missy Boo: In general, if its something you really want to do just go for it don’t doubt yourself and always be yourself, be who you are in everything you do, people will judge you regardless of what you do so just follow your dreams and hopes always.
I was truly a please to meet with this wonderful, down to earth, friendly, humble girl. She has lots of plans for her channel and I am sure she will be a great success. You can visit her channel on You Tube (click Here)
