Brooke’s Favorite Splurges on Bags
Chanel 19 Handbag, $5,700

Brooke’s Favorite Books
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, $9.42 (initially $17)
“’The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo‘” is a time period piece, mostly in the 50s, with old Hollywood glitz and glamour of a movie star,” she said. “Those time periods are my favorite to read about but this one has a good mix of past and present, with a good progression of the character’s life. A stunning twist on the finish, too.”
“I like a good psychological thriller,” she stated. “If you like watching murder mystery documentaries on Netflix, you’d like ‘The Silent Patient‘ — great twist at the end as well.”
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, $10.59 (initially $16.99)
“’It Ends With Us‘ is a romance, but a dark take on romance,” she stated. “You have family drama with a modern element of the main character looking back to her past — all with a connective, satisfying ending.”
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine, $12.58 (initially $16.99)

Bala Weighted Bangle Set, $39.20 (initially $49)

“It’s a nice all-in-one so you don’t have to wear underwear or a bra because it’s a two-layered exercise dress,” she stated. “It comes in a lot of colors and is great for the summer when you don’t know what to throw on — perfect for ‘hot girl walks,’ too.”
“I’m a really big savory gal these days and the Chomps Turkey Snack Sticks just do it for me,” she stated.

Brooke’s Favorite Tech Products

“People always ask what camera I use and I love the Canon EOS M6 Mark II,” she stated. “For the quality, the size is still compact. The flip-up LCD screen is perfect for vlogging, I love the auto-focus, and it has great lighting.”
Canon EF-M 11-22mm Lens, $399
“I think this lens is perfect for vloggers because it gives a wider look and a more realistic image instead of just your face,” she stated. “It won’t show the full room, but it’ll give a better idea of the background, so it feels a little more personal.”
Vekkia Amber Book Light, $13.99
