Meet Julie from {Back to the Basics}

I could not have been happier when I saw that Julie from Back to the Basics wanted to sponsor Pearl this month…
I love Julie, her heart, her photography, her clothes, for shortness! 🙂

So take a minute and get to know the girl behind the blog…


My name is Julie, I am a wife to my high school sweetheart Brandon, and mom to our two kids Brayden (3) and Kenley (1). I am a photographer on the side, technology junkie, blogger, online shopper, scarf and coffee addict. 

How would you describe your shop/blog? My blog is a lifestyle blog, documenting my kids monthly updates, WIWW, and pretty much anything and everything in between.

What is your most popular post? My recap of the Influence Conference is one of my top posts–

What makes your blog unique? I feel like I am genuine, blogging about the ups and downs of life. It’s not perfect nor will it ever be, but I try to not sugarcoat anything.

How did you come up with your blog name? Honestly, I don’t remember! It was 5 years ago and I think I just liked the simplicity.

Where can you be found online?

What are your favorite materials to work with/favorite mediums? (I will answer this for Julie.. clothing and cameras.. ha )

What inspires you? My husband. His brain is ALWAYS spinning with ideas! ALWAYS. I give him a hard time, but I really feed off of his ideas. My kids inspire me. My mom and sister inspire me. God, for sure, inspires me. I want to be the best version of myself.

What do you enjoy doing in your off time? Going out to dinner, being with family, watching The Office! 🙂

What would people be most surprised to learn about you If you don’t know me in real life? you might be surprised to find that I am only 5ft tall and wear a size 5.5 shoe.
