WHAT INSPIRED YOUR BLOG?
A desire for a hobby, initially. Which then turned into a passion. I’ve always had a deep love and appreciation for fashion and expressing my personal style. I initially started blogging purely for family and friends while I was travelling, so they could stay up to date with my adventures, but blogging has allowed me to combined my love of writing, design and creativity, altogether into a business as well as a hobby… win/win!
WHERE DID YOU GO TO COLLEGE & WHAT DID YOU STUDY?
I graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast with a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations, taking a particular interest in Journalism. I also obtained my Certificate in Wedding Planning and worked in the industry as a Wedding Coordinator at a boutique venue in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Weddings, events and fashion are my dream and passion. I love to make things beautiful and create lasting memories.
HOW WOULD YOU BEST DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Playful, Sophisticated, Feminine, Chic. Which has ended up becoming my “tag line” if you will… these four categories are the essence of Brooke-Lyn Edmonds Blog and sum up the majority of my style choices and general direction of my inspiration.
NAME SOME OF THE BLOGS YOU FOLLOW…
We follow so many bloggers all of which are amazing, but my main influencers are the likes of Margo & Me, Gal Meets Glam, Damsel in Dior, Chriselle Lim, Stephanie Sterjovski, Late Afternoon & Dash of Darling (just to name a few)!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP?
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE & WHO TAKES YOUR PHOTOS?
We started with the most basic camera/tools we could get our hands on (that was relatively decent in quality). We used a Canon EOS 1200D with an 18-55mm lens. Although, we have recently purchased a 75mm-300mm lens, which has certainly taken our images to a whole other level (I would highly recommend investing in a lens that has a good zoom, to give you a nice “bokah” effect, blurred background).
My husband Rohan takes all of our photos, unless otherwise stated. We are self taught photographers and still have much to learn. We try to do online tutorials and better our skills in our spare time. It really is a passion and hobby for us both, so we love the opportunity to travel and test out new things we have learnt… We are in no way professional photographers, but are always striving for the best images possible to feature on the blog!
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN THERE IS NEW CONTENT?
We stay up to date on all our social media channels to ensure our readers know about our fresh content as soon as it’s live and ready to view. However, we do have an exclusive Mailing List, which send you the content directly to your email. There are many perks of signing up for this list, you not only get updates when posts go live, but you also have access to content that has and will never feature on the blog. If you like knowing when the “really good” sales are on, we will round up that info for you! If you want to get to know Brooke-Lyn Edmonds a little bit more intimately, sign on up, we do a weekly Q&A! We also do frequent mini-series through out our newsletters, which include the likes of Copy Cat, How-To Tuesday, Friday Favourites and more.
Plus, if you sign up now we will send you a FREE Summer/Winter Travel Packing List with information on how to pack for trips away, essentials for every season and travel tips to ensure you make the most of your vacation time!
