Latest on Fashion

I’ve never been consistent or diligent about skincare, but lately (maybe because I now have two sections devoted solely to beauty and wellness on the blog), I’ve been searching for essential, indispensable products.
While investigating the creams/serums/oils that my beauty gurus go to, I immediately recognized that I’m not disciplined enough to stick to a routine that includes using five different products in the morning and at night.
Moreover, Celestino and I travel a lot, and I can’t imagine trying to stuff another toiletry bag into my suitcase without him going bonkers pre-departure.
So, while I’m looking for a regimen that lends itself to healthy, glowing skin (especially for YouTube videos shot in HD), I also want to ensure that I’m setting myself up for success. Yesterday, I kick-started the Olay 28 day challenge, which means that for the next month, I’ll use their moisturizer and eye cream every day. To showcase the results, I’ll then be walking barefaced in a show at Fashion Week.
If that’s not proof that I wholeheartedly believe in this brand, I don’t know what it is…as you know, this girl doesn’t go to Starbucks without a stick of foundation and an eyebrow on (at the very least). Wish me luck, let’s get this game started! #olay #FaceAnything @olay

I never thought I’d be able to grasp anything related to learning code, but when you want something badly enough, you’ll always find a way. I’m placing the finishing touches on the website today. Tomorrow, we’re rolling out a whole new NoteBrooke 💛😘🙏🏼

It’s been a long time since I’ve spent a summer without seeing a pool or a beach, but there’s something to be said for appreciating an extended period of stillness. When traveling starts to feel like a job, stress factors included, it’s time to consider staying put and taking advantage of the silence. In scrolling through my instagram feed, I’ve definitely been tempted to sit on a swan float somewhere while downing a glass of rose, but instead, I’ve devoted this period of time to working on a massive rebrand, being more present at @areppasofficial, and nurturing my mind and body. It’s only in silence that we’re able to listen and to connect.

Over the years, I’ve learned that serving face always starts with maintaining a clean canvas: you can have all the products in the world, but finding the right regimen that works for you is where it starts. After deciding that I wanted to learn more about aesthetic treatments, I connected with my doctor who recommended @BotoxCosmetic – the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults. The process was quick (10 minutes, with minimal down time) and now my forehead lines look less noticeable, but I still look like myself. Also, important to note(!), I’m continuing to receive savings towards future Allergan treatments because I’m signed up for the Brilliant Distinctions savings program.

Talk to your doctor about BOTOX® Cosmetic and whether it’s right for you. There are risks with this product – the effects of BOTOX ® Cosmetic may spread hours to weeks after injection causing serious symptoms. Alert your doctor right away as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threatening condition. Patients with these conditions before injection are at highest risk. Side effects may include allergic reactions, neck and injection-site pain, fatigue, and headache. Allergic reactions can include rash, welts, asthma symptoms, and dizziness. Don’t receive BOTOX ® Cosmetic if there’s a skin infection. Tell your doctor your medical history, muscle or nerve conditions (including ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome), and medications, including botulinum toxins, as these may increase the risk of serious side effects.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is available by prescription only.

For everyone who asked about where they could cop my kimono (which, I’ve come to realize, isn’t actually a kimono), I linked all of the product information here. 💓 #liketkit

News 👧🏻 I recently posted about the fact that I have an “announcement” to make. Throughout the past few weeks, I’ve been working on building a website, launching a YouTube channel, and starting a podcast – all of which will go live within the next two weeks. After a couple of years in this field, I finally feel connected to what my purpose is and I’ve allowed that realization to take me to where I believe I was meant to go in the first place. In the interest of full transparency, I was raised by a single mother, who never received child-support from her partner, my father, who barraged her with demands to have me aborted; so, I’ve seen the strength of a woman firsthand.
Some parts of my story are sad, some are unjust, but they’ve all given me the opportunity to love better and to put myself in other people’s skin. And so, while my content will continue to incorporate tons of fashion, lifestyle and beauty inspiration, it will also delve into deeply personal matters, including, but not limited to mental-health, spirituality, relationships, etc. For whatever reason, I don’t feel compelled to keep even my deepest, darkest secrets private. As a result, I decided to use this platform to showcase the resources and tools that I’ve acquired along the way in a quest to love and feel good about myself.
Rarely will you meet a woman who is only what she appears to be on the surface. I want you to know who I am, I want to know who you are, and I want us to help one another manifest our strongest, happiest, and most confident selves. That’s really the only thing of value that I have to offer you. #liketkit

I have to tell you something.
I’ve never been secretive about the fact that I often feel unfulfilled in my work as a blogger and that I question what my real purpose in pursuing this trajectory is. I’m also open about the various mental-health issues that I’ve struggled with since I was a child.

I’ve come to realize that I’ve been living hypnotically, almost as if I were under a spell. Instead of being obedient to my inner nature, I conformed to the opinions of the world. How many of us are doing the same thing? Often times, we know what our calling is, but we don’t change our thoughts to become in alignment with it.
While making an active decision to avoid mainstream and social media, to nourish my body with healthy foods for the first time ever, and to seek out people who I intrinsically recognized could help me to become re-aligned with my essence — my Grandfather, Melissa, Dr. Wayne Dyer — I’ve realized that I need to live from a place where God is in me, and I have to recognize and feel that as I carry out my purpose. In choosing to exist like this, I’m free from all limitations.
The top regret among people who know they’re dying is that they failed to live the life that they knew they were destined to; they didn’t allow themselves the freedom to listen to their internal voices.
Who I am — who we are — is not the physical body that’s here for a moment and then gone. In remaining true to my essence, I’ll be able to serve you in a much more significant, loving and effective way. The universe has made it clear to me that this is the journey of my lifetime, and it woke me from that feeling of living hypnotically. For the first time in many years, I feel like my true self again. Sending you love and light always.

Incorporating beauty into my content feels like a completely organic progression to me. As much as I love street style, I never feel passionate about wearing a look until I incorporate hair and makeup into the equation, as well; THEN, it’s complete to me, and I feel like the best version of myself. If you’ve seen my stories, you’ve realized that I spend forty percent of my life in front of a mirror on the bathroom floor with an iced venti in one hand and a beauty blender in the other. I’m obsessed with experimenting with makeup. Sometimes, I also get to work with insanely talented artists (I’m looking at you @glossipgirl), who teach me a lot about products and technique, while working to help me achieve specific looks. Most importantly, I always like to include a complete breakdown of all products used so that you can recreate the beat on your own. Let me know if you want me to continue to include makeup and skincare photos onto my feed.

A bit about NoteBrooke

NoteBrooke is an inviting space of intimate candor where women can explore an assorted host of entertaining and honesttopics. What began as a hypnotically run, sporadically updated lifestyle blog has evolved into a personal forum operated from a state of God realization.

In being transparent about my long-term struggles with mental health, trauma and self-loathing, I sought to develop a place where I could organize the breadth of resources that have engendered my evolution into a deeply fulfilled, confident soul.

NoteBrooke places an equal emphasis on the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of self-acceptance, exploring how the distinct realms can work harmoniously to aid and empower women.

It took me nearly thirty years to learn how to love myself; after realizing that goal, I decided to create an integrative, unbiasedspace that introduces the outlets, experts, and teachings that I believe will help readers to find fulfillment, as well.
