Hello friends!

Wow, this week just about ate me alive. But the good news is I am alive, and we had a very magical wonderful Christmas Show at the Thousand Oaks Civics Art Plaza, and for that I am grateful! Nonetheless this particular season is kicking my booty hard, I'm sure you can relate! Anywho, yesterday I apologize for dropping the ball, I just had to give some time love and attention to everything else I have been neglecting for too long, like family, laundry, my health (boo) and of course I have done no Christmas shopping. Waahhh! It is all good though. How are you? Are you hanging in there? Times like these we need to take a deep breath, and ponder on what matters. Ya know?

Getting back on track, I am super duper excited about today's giveaway. Summer and I recently wrote and through together a brand spankin' new Christmas song and video. In true GWG fashion we quickly wrote, recorded and filmed this video in a matter of 2 darn days. We love to stress ourselves out, haha! But when it all comes together we usually decide that it was worth it! We love making these music videos, and being silly and getting into the holiday spirit! We gotta give shout outs to friends who helped make it possible, my buddy and guitar extraordinaire Kevin Haaland for producing, playing and mixing this track with us. Jihan for connecting us with the cutest gal Taylor of Taysings, who connected us this a rad accordion player, Colin Hatch, who she started a band with, their called JUNECAT and they are really good, be on the look out. We can't leave out our girl Priscilla Chang for being our right hand Girl with Glasses and keeping us moving and organized on set. And then a big shout out to Kerry Bellessa who shot this whole thing, we couldn't do it without the K-bells. And guess what, Dave Ray CPA made his first debut in this one, he's a bit bashful about it, but I love it. All in all, we just love how this turned out, and hope you do too! (Disclaimer, um, we don't speak French. Forgive us for all of our idiomatically incorrect usage of french words, it's all in good fun)

So here is the scoop... Today we are giving away a pair of our golden glittery glamourous official GLITTER GLASSES! As well as a pair of my personal favorite dangly EARRINGS from designer MARCIA MORAN that I love. Also, because I dropped the ball yesterday, we are giving away a free download of our other Christmas classic "I LOVE CHRISTMAS", happiest Christmas Song ever!


Thursday I ran an Instagram contest for the 7th Day of Christmas and gave away my favorite wrap watch, the jane, from Feral Watches! Winner was announced today on Instagram, thanks sooo much to Feral watches for joining in the fun!

6th Day BWC: Silent Night and A Spotify Premium Membership

Anybody that knows me, knows I live for playlist. When I grow up I just want to make playlists for a living. If I love you than I probably have made you a playlist, or a mix tape or mix CD. Whatever the format, nothing delights me more than to hand select song by song the perfect list of tunes to dance to, drive to, party to, cry to and just get through life to! From nostalgic and sentimental songs from childhood, to oldies classics, hip hop and top 40, cheezy adult contemporary, to indie rock to down home country, I am into just about everything. Well not everything, but most of it. And then there is Christmas music, which holds it's own special place in my heart and my music library. 

Today's giveaway coincides with my playlist obsession. I will be giving away 2 six month long premium memberships to Spotify! This means no ads, and the premium membership means you can listen to almost any song desire, on your computer, phone, device wherever you are!! Whether you're at home, in the car, at a friends, at work, at the grocery store (yep, London listens to spotify at Target all the time, keeps her from turning into a wild monkey child). This membership is usually $9.99 a month, so this is a pretty cool deal, well I think so anywho:) Also, importantly, it's a legal service and it still supports the artist, yay! 

So if you are a hardcore music lover like me, and you live for a good playlist, and you don't have a premium membership, then you should jump on this!


1. START: A Spotify account if you don't already have one (it is free and easy to sign up)

2.  FOLLOW: Follow my Brookify Playlist (posted above in this post!), which I will be changing and updating week to week, starting in 2014! Yay, dreams come true!

3. CREATE: your own 10 song Christmas Playlist and include at least one song from my album, Brooke White Christmas! 

4. COMMENT: Leave me a comment letting me know you entered, and your favorite Christmas song

Lastly, tonight is the big show, it's been a long time, and I am looking forward to jumping on a stage with my awesome band, playing some tunes and connecting with the audience. One of the moments I am most excited about is singing Silent Night, we will close the show with it and have the audience sing along. I did this last year, and the feeling in the room was beyond magical. Music is a gift!

There are still some random single seats left, as well as a row or two available towards the back. If you've got nothing to do, come get into the Christmas Spirit with us tonight at 7:30 at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza

Also, winners for the last two contests:

Day 4: Sequin Pants: this was a hard one! Bravo to the six brave souls that danced for the pants, but they were all so cute and hilarious, it was so hard to choose! The winner of the sparkly pants and a signed BWC CD is: @lyndsbeegee, yeah girl you went for it, and it is so good! laughed my head off. go you!

5th Day of BWC: 100 Custom Christmas Card Prints

This giveaway goes out to all the slackers out there, the procrastinators, the wait till the last minuters! Haha, let me rephrase that, to those of us who have yet had a free second to even think about Christmas Cards. Guilty! I still haven't put one together, however I just can't bring myself to not send one. So I opt for the better late than never. I just love Christmas Cards, especially receiving. I know we all see each others faces just about everyday on Instagram and Facebook, but there is still something so magical and nostalgic about getting a card in the mail, with a stamp, and  a lovely pieces of paper that you can hold in your hands and tape to the backside of the door. I look forward to it every year. 

I love Christmas cards so much, that I even wrote a song about it. This song is possibly one of the most inspired songs I have written in the last five years. Written from personal experiences. A song about forgiveness and reconciliation in the smallest simplest form of a Christmas card. Explaining meaning of songs is always weird, Maybe you want to just listen to it here. This is a real heart song. I get a tiny tear in the corners of my eyes when I sing it. 

Remember last years awesome Christmas Card Contest? There was an incredible level of participation and it made my heart literally sing with glee and gladness to see all of the creative and unique designs that so many people came up with. I wish we had more time, but we're kind of cutting it close to Christmas, pushing the envelope if you will. Pun Intended.

So this year we are simplifying with a one day giveaway. Whether you plan on getting your cards out in the final hour, or you want to send a New Years card, or heck, a Valentines Greeting, than this giveaway is for you! Or you can even use this giveaway for next year! 

Our cool Friends in Mesa, Arizona of ASHLEE'S PRINTING are kind enough to give away 100 custom printed Christmas Cards of your own design to one wonderful winner! Note: They do not do the design, just printing. So if you like designing your own cards, or have a friend or family member who does, then this is for you! The turn around is super fast, so you will have them quick! 


- POST: your favorite family picture, whatever your family looks like, newly weds, cute kids, you and a cat. NOTE: This doesn't have to be the picture you would use on the actual card! For an extra entry, you can even post your design. 

- TAG: Hashtag #5DayofBrookeWhiteChristmas and tag @realbrookewhite 

- COMMENT: Leave me a comment letting me know you entered, especially if your account is private.

Winner will be randomly selected and chosen by noon tomorrow!!

3rd Day of BWC: Oh Come All Ye Faithful Free Download!

So sorry for the delay! Because it's the sabbath, and because of technical difficulties, today's giveaway  is running a little late! But since it's Sunday, and because today's giveaway coincides with "oh come all ye faithful", I wanted it to have a little more simplicity and meaning. While I love to decorate and shop for gifts, some of my most favorite moments are the quiet ones, filled with peace, without stuff, without the bustle and endless to-do's. I love the moments when the spirit calms my soul and I feel that intangible joy that is hard to explain with words. 

Last night, after getting home from our church christmas party and put London down for bed, I sat at the table near the glow of the christmas tree, the house was still and quiet, and that feeling came over me. For me, for many, this season is about the birth of Savior, the gift he gives a broken world of peace, of hope and of second chances. While listening to "Oh come all ye faithful" the words that stood out ro me were "joyful and triumphant".  That's what this season is about.

Everybody wins today. Click on the Photo below for a FREE DOWNLOAD of Oh Come All Ye Faithful! This song was one of my favorites to record from Brooke White Christmas, the simplicity of just the piano, and voices. My passion is creating harmonies, and this was a real joy to put together. I hope you enjoy it too!

Feel free to spread the love, with the cover pic and this link:

2nd Day of BWC: Barn Owl Primitives and My Christmas Living Room

On the second day of Christmas, Brooke White gave to me (you).... A Barnowl Primitives sign!

I am excited to give you a little looksies into my Christmas living room. As a kid, the most magical day of the year is when we would put up our Christmas tree and my dad would get out the "christmas boxes" from the attic with all of our decorations. We would blast Carpenter's Christmas and Beach Boy's Christmas while we hung ornaments, strung lights, and went wild turning the house into a little piece of holiday heaven. Now that I am grown up with a little kid of my own, I'm still obsessed with these traditions, if not more so! Real trees are a must, as well as a collection of fake trees that I buy on super clearance after Christmas every year. I have five trees this year, Dave thinks it's a tad excessive, I say there's no such thing, can you have to many Christmas trees? Too much Christmas spirit? um, not possible.

Of course it takes me all of December to put it all together with boxes open and strewn about the house (not shown: we pushed them into the dining room aka "the disaster zone" for this picture). It never gets finished with the hustle and bustle of the crazy time of year. Nonetheless, I try, actually I love that it's never finished, I love chipping away at it, one little decoration at a time. 

One thing I love to do is find little pieces of art to hang on the walls during Christmas, however I'm pretty particular, it can be kind of hard to find something not super cheezeball, and the good stuff can be a little expensive for just a month or two. Most of the times I just make something out of a huge canvas or an old piece of plywood. But this year my awesome friend Kristi of Barn Owl Primitives surprised me with this amazing Christmas sign and I was so excited!!! As you can tell I have a thing for black and white, and with the little dash of red for Rudolph's nose, it was just the perfect fit for my space. Seriously, made for eachother.  

Kristi was kind enough to join in my giveaway and is going to give one of these happy signs away!

Here's what you do to Win:
1.  Repost the above picture on Instagram -OR- a picture of your Christmas living room or any room of your house that is your favorite festive space.

2.  Follow @barnowlprimitives and @realbrookewhite on Instagram

3.  You must tag #2DayofBrookeWhiteChristmas

4.  For an extra entry to win you can pin a picture from this post on pinterest. Leave me a comment with the link.

Winner will be drawn randomly and announced tomorrow! 
I wish it could stay Christmas in my living room all year long
the tree... short and sweet
it's a small world garland! Found these little ornaments from target, just sewed their mittens together! 
Dancing with my Loo in our Christmas living room to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas!

I am not one to do give-aways and contests, however this year I thought it would be kind of fun to give to my friends and fans some of my favorite things! These aren't elaborate over the top giveaways worth millions of dollars, but just the little trinkets and treasures and wonderful little things that make me happy that I genuinely use in everyday life.

Of course there will be some handmade items made by yours truly, I'll even be giving away a painting! 

Of course I wanted to incorporate music, because, music is my favorite!  Every winner will get a signed copy of Brooke White Christmas :)  If you already have one, it could make a nice stocking stuffer for your mother or your brother or your friend?! Every day and giveaway will coincide with the songs on Brooke White Christmas. We will be giving away one giveaway per day, and will announce the winner the following morning along with the next days giveaway! Also, you are free to enter every giveaway!
