Motivation Monday: Kelly Osbourne

We love that Kelly sticks to her workouts. Keeps to commitments that are not overwhelming and gets the job done.

Mini Banana Splits

It's time to break out the seasonal fruit! We love strawberries and pineapple. These hors d'oeuvres would be great for any backyard bbq.


Halved Strawberries
Banana Slices
Chopped Pineapple
Melted Chocolate (Dark or Milk)

Arrange the pineapple, banana slice and halved fruit pieces on a toothpick and then dip one side into the melted chocolate. Place on wax paper to cool.

The grant is incredibly important to us. Right now, as you can see on our shop page we only offer tops. Tees, vees, long sleeves and hoodies, we have it covered. When it comes to the bottoms, you are running around naked. Or at least wearing non-tomboy specific bottoms. This grant would allow us to start venturing into the world of bottoms, something Bruonis has been working towards since we opened our doors.

To help support us, please follow these directions:

  1. Visit http://bit.ly/KrSUxN 
  2. Click the log-in and support button (it connects through Facebook) 
  3. Scroll to the bottom, type in Bruonis and hit the Search button. 
  4. You will then see Bruonis and a Vote button. Hit that and you are done. 
  5. OPTIONAL: Share your vote on your Facebook timeline. 
This means a lot for the future of our company. Let us know you voted and we will enter you in a give-away for some Bruonis Swag Bag items. 

Thank you.

Fist Pump Friday

I've been a little MIA lately. I have excuses, but I'll keep them to myself.

Spring is really rearing its beautiful head here and I'm loving it. That's inspiring my music lately. Fun, sunny, upbeat, cheerful.

Something new (ish):

Something old (ish):

This Week in Sports

I'm finally back with a sports post, albeit light. Enjoy!

Things I liked:

  • This girl was looking for a date to her sorority formal, so she decided to make a video, reminiscent of the military members who asked Justin Timberlake and Mila Kuniz out. She, however, failed miserably. Rather than asking out Jeremy Lin, the Knicks Asian-American point guard (who went to Harverd...), she asked out Jerry Linn, a black player for the Giants...who just won the Super Bowl. Amazing. Ah-mazing.

  • This guy has taken the internet by storm. He came up with a creative behind-the-backboard-distraction sign for the Alabama/Ole Miss game on Feb. 4.
Jack Blankenship (Hal Yeager/Birmingham News)

Things I didn't like:
  • Kris Humphries is still getting booed when he plays. People are seriously booing the kid? Did they watch the overly produced Kim & Kourtney take New York? Was it not obvious that Kim Kardashian is a selfish, uncompromising person who didn't attempt to even be married?? Let the man play.

Things that surprised me:
  • This surprised me and and pretty much the rest of the country. Here's the story...in a Linfographic. All the plays on his name have been amazing. Linsanity was the first, I believe. I think my favorite is Love you Lin time.

Something new: Did you watch the Grammy's? Doesn't feel like there's been a lot of new music in the last year - I mean, that song Black & Yellow was nominated for a Grammy. Wtf?!

Something old: I feel like, in the wake of Whitney's passing, I have to include a Whitney song. HOWEVER, what is up with that fact that our society glorifies someone who became a drug addict and basically killed themselves more than someone like Etta James who led a great life and died at an old age? Not ok, y'all - something's messed up.

Think about that and have a great weekend!

Super Bowl Fever

Congrats to the New York Giants for winning the Super Bowl . . . again.

Now on to the commercials. There are two spots that really stuck with us, the M&M spot and the Kia Sandman spot. 

What were your favorite spots?

Happy weekend! Are you watching the Super Bowl? If you are, here's something to get you in the spirit!

For a chill weekend:

For a pumped up weekend:

Color Run Craziness

This past weekend was so much fun! We participated in the Color Run, this national tour kicked off in Arizona and I couldn't be more proud to be the first stop. The Color Run is a 5K run where you wear all white and at ever kilometer you are doused in a different color. This is a HUGE MESS but so well worth it!! Are you running the Color Run? Share your photos here or on our Facebook page.

Check out some of the photos from the run.

Happy FPF! Truly hoping your day has gone better than mine. It this music was reflective of my day, it would be Daniel Powder Had a Bad Day and no one wants to hear that. Plus, it's been pouring buckets here in NY all day. I think I want to go back to Costa Rica.

Enjoy your weekends!! Do something for yourself!

Whoa - is this a new boy band??

Something new.

Something old(er).

Everybody's got a dream.

Nissan Mobile Office
This past weekend I got to get out with one of my great friends. She's a marine, owns her own line of cowboy boots and is a true blue Texan. We watched the Giants, 49ers game downtown and just started talking about how owning a business is crazy hard and incredibly worth it.

Starting a business right now. In this second is worth it more than ever. America is in a motion of change where people are supporting small independent shops. It's a movement that I couldn't be more behind if I tried.

Our parents and grandparents lived in this time where you got up, went to the office, answered to your boss, clocked out and went home. People today want so much more than that. How can I affect change in a company or the world if I have to go through six managers before it reaches someone who actually matters.

Today's offices can be anywhere, and office hours can be at anytime. Technology has allowed us to live our lives while still accomplishing what we need to. Check out the Nissan Mobile Office at the top.

Do you own your own business? Do you want to own your own business? Tell us about it!

And I'm back in the game!! (10 Things I Hate About You reference...anyone? Bueller?)

Something old: RIP Etta James

Something new: I woke up to this little gem on the radio this morning.

Have a great weekend!

Roller Derby Time

This weekend we got away and went to Roller Derby. The Bad News Beaters faced off against the Northern Arizona Whiskey Rollers. If you've ever seen the movie Whip It, that's the experience we thought we were going in to. It wasn't really anything like the movie, don't get us wrong, roller derby is a hard sport. Though, it's a community sport and a really good time.

If you've never been, I would highly suggest getting out to one of the matches. The guys go first and then the women come out for the main event. The jammers (the ones that score the points) are amazing on their skates. They have to get around and through the pack to score points and it reminds one of football on roller skates.

We are going again in March and can't wait to see the Jailbirds take to the ring.

Hello Mr. Mustache-butt MC. 

These girls were bad ass. 


Intentional. :)

Sling shot maneuver?

Out on her own. 

Move bitch, get out the way. . .

The pack. 

Some time-out entertainment.

A Man on a Mission

Today is a day of celebration and reflection on a man that had a dream. He had a dream to allow people of color the same rights as those people without any color. As I think about how far we've come I wonder how far we have to go.

One of my favorite quotes from MLK Jr. is "We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." I feel that it is as true yesterday as it is today. We make up this place all of us call home, why can't we make it the best place it can be?
