Hi!  I'm Brooke Williams, an Asheville native, affordable fashion addict, wardrobe stylist, and mom to Harlow.  I help women elevate their every day style, from their closets to their homes and travels.  I cherish my hometown here in the Blue Ridge mountains and love to share travel guides for visiting Asheville, too. Thanks for spending time here with me!

Hats off to my husband for creating this original recipe on his own out of a need for a delicious Old Fashioned bourbon cocktail without lots of sugar.  Between this and his mint julep recipe, Mike is quite the bourbon barkeep and I'm here for it!  Long story short, hi...

I'm still on Cloud Nine after last Thursday's cocktail workshop at Anthropologie.  They've always been one of my dream brands to work with, so when they asked me to co-host an event dishing out rosé recipes and sharing summer entertaining tips, I jumped at the idea!...

We're a snacking family here in ye olde Williams household.  I think Mike's world vastly improved after Harlow started eating solids and I started buying more snacks to have in the house.  It's a good thing Harlow's pretty good at sharing for a three-year-old because M...

Earlier this week on Insta Stories I shared my new Asheville Bee Charmer Cookbook by Chef Carrie Schloss and if y'all followed along you already know the recipe I 'bee-lined' for: the Sweet Bee Bourbon Cocktail.  Um, let me count the reasons why. 

For starters, fa...

This is the year I start making Harlow lunch to take to school every day, and while I love being in control of what she's eating, it gets exhausting coming up with different options that she'll eat and that give her all the nutrients she needs on a daily basis.  Protei...

When I first heard of cauliflower tacos I admit I didn't understand the hype.  How could a meatless taco be that good, and how would I convince my husband that forgoing a meat-based protein in our dinner was going to be worth it?  I answered both when I made them becau...

This salad is so quick and simple it's almost funny.  It's ready in under 30 minutes and is very easy to prepare, cook, and clean up.  Oh -- and it's also very healthy and packed with nutrients, too!

Shrimp are such a great summery protein to add to salads and past...

I've rarely been one to spend hours on one meal, prepping, cooking, then washing dishes for most of the evening.  Once I became a mom, that solidified into a steely-eyed determination to only cook what's quick, easy, and healthy.  It's all I could do.  Harlow gave me a...

Although I'm a proud North Carolinian, born and raised, there's a special place in my heart for Kentucky.  My dad's side of the family all grew up in the Bluegrass State, my grandfather on a farm in Bardstown, now arguably the bourbon capital of the world.  My grandmot...

Morning friends!  I want to share this amazing ramen bowl recipe with you today because we've been making it on a weekly basis lately.  It's just that good.  And so incredibly simple!  We typically like to eat this on Sunday night when we want some comfort food that's...
