Liebster Award


We have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Soni over at Cocktails and Catwalk. In case you don't know what the Liebster Award is, it is an award for bloggers who are just starting out, finding their reader base, or just because you love their blog; so thank you so much Soni for the nomination. Now the rules are that I have to answer some questions about myself  (well, us) and then we nominate 11 other bloggers. I love meeting new people and discovering new things so I am more than happy to give this a try, plus it gives you guys the chance to know us better! 

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what's it about?


The Brooke Of Fashion has evolved quite a lot quite quickly, but it is a place to share with you My Style, Outfit Inspirations and just show you the world of fashion from a strapped-for-cash fashion-lover lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Recently, with the addition of my best friend Lily, it has evolved into to a more sustainability inspired fashion journal to inspire and raise awareness of how fashion can be both enchanting and Eco-friendly.

The name comes from me, as my last name is Brooking. Family has always played a big part in my life so I wanted them to be a part of this . . hence the name The Brooke Of Fashion.

2. Can you give 11 random facts about yourself?


1. I am a philosopher at heart. Fancy a deep philosophical debate over a glass of wine and I am there!

2. I believe that loyalty and trust are extremely important qualities to have, and carry with you throughout life.

3. I love cheese, maybe way too much.

4. Bermuda is my favourite place in the world, closely seconded by New York (closely thirded by Amsterdam.) 

5. I have never eaten sushi in my life due to my eternal disgust for seafood.

6. I have an obsession with macaroons. On holiday I ate about 20,000 of them.


7. My hair has been every colour of the rainbow. 

8. I'm a vegetarian

9. I love Alice Glass

10. I have every single Pink Floyd song on my phone

11. I'm like a magpie, I'm drawn to shiny/sparkly clothes

3. What is something you’ve been loving lately?
Tweed style materials. In any garment, just loving it. For example:

4. What is it you love most about blogging?
Connecting to new people, definitely my favourite thing. I love being able to chat to people from all countries and places that share this common love, it's great. And being able to be creative with something I truly love, creating outfits and finding unique items.

5. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
The obvious cliche one: create world peace and equality.
To own a private jet so I can fly around the world to wherever I want.
Can I wish to get infinite wishes?

6. Where does your blog inspiration come from?
Everywhere. I know it's cliche but it's true, my inspiration comes from everything I see and do, what I would want to read.

7. What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why?
Norway because: it's one of the happiest countries in the world, I like cold weather (and snow!), it looks beautiful and has so many amazing lakes and mountains, you can see the Northern Lights, and it seems to have a brilliant government.

8. If you have pets? Tell me about your babies.
Emily has a cat called Dumbledore (see him here) and I have a cat called Esme (we're very much cat people.)

9. A long lost relative leaves you a large sum of money. What do you do with it?
I would give some to charities like Wateraid. I would invest in a sustainable fashion brand, or start making my own sustainable clothing. But firstly I would definitely go on a shopping spree!

10. What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?
Meditate and just relax.

11. Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I always find this a difficult question but I want to be working in fashion marketing or branding, hopefully somewhere exciting like New York, or LA or Amsterdam. I am doing a lot of travelling next year so we shall see what happens. I like that I don’t know where I want to be in 5 years exactly, it makes it exciting.
