The Blogger Collaborative Part 2


Hey lovessss…..

So here are some pictures from my day with the sweetest duo The Blogger Collaborative. If you read the first post from this shoot, you will get the jist behind this shoot.

Like I had mentioned before, I was so happy that they reached out to me to be apart of this experience. Having a blog opens up so many doors and friendships that I never really thought would come from having a little blog such as mine, I am really such an amateur at it and am still learning how it all works and I think I have been blogging for almost 2 years???? hmmmmmm, well I should know this.. kinda of like how I don’t really know my very beloved dog Dynasty’s birthday.. I estimate.. he was adopted and they told us he was possibly 3 months old at the time.. and yeah, I know it was December butttttt I still need to do the math on what year that was many moons ago!!!

Sorry totally off track, I know.. insert apology here….

This day was one of those experiences for sure where I found myself grateful for having thrown myself out there into the instagram/blogging world because of all the relationships that I have formed… I was so scared starting out my blog not knowing what real good could come from sharing just little old me to others and who the heck could really give a lick, but something as fun as this being around like minded strangers who quickly turned into new friends was very refreshing… so if you are in the market for trying something new… I’d say well duhhh put your darn self out there women and goooooo…

peace out.. xxxx Brooke

Je Suis Prete : I Am Ready

Are you ready? For what?…. you maybe thinking or wondering….. well these words can mean so much to so many of us. It can mean something different depending on how you think or feel when you read this…. Be Still Clothing Company printed this phrase on their tees to remind others of how we can be ready for it all.

To me it’s a reminder to always be ready for new experiences, any new obstacles that God puts in front of me, being ready to learn and ready to grow….. Je Suis Prete…

Happy week!

Hey guys!

It’s been some time, I know. I seriously have not taken time to do any blog posts… Uhhhhhh. Work and life always seem to get in the way, but I am counting down the days until summer…. 5 weeks. 24 days to be exact.

Here is another look from Be Still’s  new spring line. If your a wifey, do your hubby a favor and pick one up.. He’ll be proud for sure.

Be Still Clothing Company has always been one of my favorite shops once I began following them on Instagram forever ago.  I’m in love with the reason behind the tees that Marissa, owner of the shop has started and not to mention she has to be the sweetest thing. I have yet to meet her, but I see that soon in our future… When she asked Lauren and I to shoot her new Spring line, I was totally excited! Here is one look from her Spring line. I love. Check them out!

“Be Still Clothing Company was started in December 2013 as a means to bring hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and comfort to those in pain. Exodus 14:14 says “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to BE STILL,” and Psalm 46:10 says “BE STILL and know that I am God.” These verses have been a source of strength to so many in their time of need. Be Still Clothing Company wants to share this truth with others through our clothing in a fashionable and comfortable way.”- Be Still Clothing

|Spread Bliss|



I am so happy to share with you guys about this gem of a shop Braided Bliss  the owner Ansley is seriously an angel. The sweetest thing ever. She started the company in hopes of spreading bliss and  good vibes to others.

/// ABOUT BRAIDED BLISS ///

Spreading bliss is more than an action. It’s a way of life. It’s about embracing the strength of the smallest act of kindness and knowing that it can make a large impact. It’s about loving freely and radically. It’s about knowing that you have the power, anywhere and anytime, to create a beautiful ripple effect in the world and can brighten even the darkest of days. Leave a trail of light wherever you go.    You are light. You are bliss. —– Ansley Braided Bliss Owner

The best thing about this tee is the mini message in a bottle that comes with each tee, handwritten by Ansley. I was so excited to open it and see what message I got and I just loved it so much… it totally spoke to me. //  you have as much  p o w e r  over your d r e a m s  as you do with your fears. So why let your fears take the lead. Go forth, fly FREE!
