Living Generously

Last week, my brother knew I was in a funk about my transition from Dallas to LA, so he invited me to his meditation class. The group typically meditates for about 30 minutes and then has a discussion afterward about some kind of theme. The actual meditation part was interesting (sitting still for 30 minutes is hard though!), but I got the most out of the group discussion. We talked about living generously with others and ourselves, and it has been weighing on my heart a lot the past few days. I think most of us were taught from a…

Cinco de Mayo Pool Party!

Hello and welcome to the new Brooke du jour!!! It feels SO FREAKEN GOOD to say that!!! Stephanie and I have been dreaming about this site redesign for a long time. I am beyond thrilled it’s live and of course owe it all to Stephanie (my best gal pal, occasional therapist and web developer!). She has the biggest heart and the biggest brain, and I just love her to pieces. I really wanted to elevate things around here while still keeping the design approachable and easy to navigate. I may have outgrown the pink polka dot design I previously had…

My Fitness Journey

“Be a bad ass with a good ass.” I never used to care about fitness. How’s that for honest, right? I didn’t grow up playing a sport (huge mistake!) and I’m naturally thin, so I easily prioritized other things I wanted to do over hitting the gym. I had plenty of friends who set their alarms for 6 am spin classes before work, loved their green juices and all that. I admired their self-discipline but kind of had a “good for you but no thanks” philosophy. So what changed? Well I did. When I moved to LA at the end…

It’s kind of hard not to be when you’re the proud owner of a pink and palm print maxi dress! I’m pretty much obsessed. I mean, how cute is this print? It makes me want to book my next tropical vacation as soon as possible or go hang poolside at The Beverly Hills Hotel. We also have to talk about the tote I’m reppin’, because rosé season is upon us and you need it. Send it to your rosé-loving…

Entertaining On The Sand

My friend Erica and I were in the mood to welcome springtime and the beginning of long sunny beach days, so we put together a fun dinner for a few girlfriends at the Bel Air Bay Club. Simple but special was what we were going for. There are few things in life I appreciate more than a rosé buzz, a well-stacked cheese plate and outdoor entertaining so put all three ingredients together and I’m one happy camper. Y’all know I also can’t get enough of a good theme so we went Moroccan for this one. And can we talk about…
