CT Bloggers You Should Check Out (Pt. 2)

   A few weeks ago we released a list of bloggers based out of Connecticut we thought you should check out.  After the list was released we had many readers reach out to us with their favorite CT bloggers we should feature.  With the new demand we decided to make a part 2!  Below are a few of the bloggers your fellow readers recommend you check out.

Brooke Gambardella

Hello! My name is Brooke Gambardella.  I am an Interior Design student and creating a blog was always something I wanted to do! I wanted a place where I can 100% be myself and share the things I love, and “By The Brooke” was just the place.  I use my Instagram to supplement my blog and connect with people that have similar interests and style as me.  I love anything comfortable and cozy, from clothing to interiors and everything in between!  I look forward to growing my blog, meeting new people, and trying new things along the way.

Mami Works

My name is Michelle and I am a wife to the hardest working man I know, the mom to two beautiful daughters (who are 4 and 6 years old) and an entrepreneur to three businesses. As a Pathologists’ Assistant (PA) turned stay at home mom (due to medical reasons… which obviously was NOT in the plan) I wanted to do more (as if raising two little ones isn’t enough). I became a Beautycounter Consultant and started a small shop making tutus and tutu dresses. My best friend then encouraged me to start blogging because I had so much to say, and it would be a good way for me to connect with other women in similar situations. That is how Mami Works was born. As my blog grows, I want to be that candid voice and share what I have learned in life… or didn't learn for that matter.  I also want to find others with similar stories and discuss our journey as women, wives, moms, stay at home moms, work at home moms and/or an entrepreneurs. I know there is much comfort in knowing you are not alone… and strongly believe in community over competition.

My Life In Limbo

Amber Cunningham is a Connecticut native who ventured into the blogging world starting in June of 2017. After being laid off unexpectedly, she realized that she had put her writing to the wayside for far too long, and so My Life in Limbo was born. Her blog is dedicated to finding simple and affordable solutions to everyday life, and sharing her personal experiences and creative writing. In-depth reviews, poetry, and personal essay are just a few types of content you’ll see at her site. My Life in Limbo celebrates the joys and delightful-awkwardness of not having it all together--because, in reality, who ever really does?
