Rocker Mom

In a world of “soccer moms”, “yoga moms” and the stereo typical suburban moms that make the world go round, its hard to find a mom that really rocks! Down in the little college town of Bloomington-Normal, IL, resides the most kick ass mom you will ever meet!

Barb Wire

I first met Brooke, also known as the Rocker Barbie, when I was living in “Blo-No” as a student at Illinois State University. A lot of the girls on campus knew Brooke from a local tanning salon, she was a smiling face that we all enjoyed getting to know. As I got to know her better, I was able to learn about her awesome family and the rockstar life she lives! As a full time mother of three beautiful kids, a part time fitness instructor, and a gorgeous partner in crime to her doting hubby, this hot mama knows how to bring metal to motherhood and live a life that truly ROCKS!

Brooke can teach all of us ladies that being a mom does not mean you have to sacrifice your style or down grade your music choices, because Brooke has it all. Brooke and her man are the real deal metal heads and true blue rock lovers, not just the folks who buy the t-shirts and go ape shit over the best of Journey. Rock runs through this family like its’ their blood line, and their passion for music and the bands they love are a huge part of the life they live. In addition to working out and shopping with her stylish daughters, Brooke and her family can be found rocking out at the concerts of all the rock legends that make their way into town.

In keeping up with Brooke on Facebook, I am constantly drooling over her fabulous fashion finds, her style is everything I represent as a stylist and I have been long wanting to feature her on Tio Trash. However, I couldn’t just stop at her wardrobe, her life and family are part of the amazing package that is Brooke the Rocker Barbie!

 Her family graciously hosted the Tio Trash team at their home, and it was the most fun MUA, Mondana V. and I have ever had on set. Energy, laughter, Rob Zombie movie soundtracks blaring, and creative juices flowing, this family was a blast to work with and they were all great models, even dad! This “motley crew” is not your average family, but a family you will wish you were a part of if you even spend 5 minutes with them, and all great families have great beginnings …

For Brooke and her MMA fighter/main squeeze Jay, it was love at first sight. They first met at the McLean County Fair when Brooke was 13 and Jay was 15, and they have been together for 18 years. This is the couple that makes you believe in love that lasts past the honey moon stage because these two are like giddy high school sweethearts who can’t keep their hands off of each other.

With passionate love and a hot couple, you have to expect some beautiful babies! Brooke and Jay are the proud parents of 12 year old Aliyah (after the late singer), lil sis Indiyah (after the country, India), and their son, Priest, named in honor of the legendary metal band, Judas Priest. Not only are these kids super sweet and super gorgeous, they have amazing taste in music! No Miley Cyrus coming out of these bedrooms, its nothing but rock.

This house is a full house, being that this is a group of animal lovers. In addition to being a mother to 3 kids, Brooke is mom to 8 pets;  a German Shepherd dog named Axle, 1 Himalayan cat named Tiki, 1 Siamese cat named Pete, a Quaker Parrot named Nerdy, a Lionhead Rabbit named Fassah, 2 Bearded Dragons named Agro and Drago and a Leopard Gecko named Bid Bird.

So let’s talk about how Brooke rocks it out;

I asked Brooke to do the impossible; I asked her to list for me her top 10 favorite bands and here is the line up, folks:

1) Guns N Roses 2) Nirvana 3) Rob Zombie 4) Lynyrd Skynyrd 5) Papa Roach 6) Pink Floyd 7) Johnny Cash 8) Black Label Society 9) Megadeth 10) Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Concerts are her passion and she has seen the best of them, but the best show she has ever seen was Guns & Roses. Concerts make a great date night for Brooke and her man as well as a family outing. Her son, Priest, has become quite the little celebrity himself amongst the metal circuit, often invited on stage, back stage and on the tour buses of his rock icons.

Brooke and Jay - hot rockin night.

A family that rocks together!

Music and fashion often go hand in hand, especially when stye meets life style, and for Brooke, that means more rock! 

Brooke describes her style as “a mix between a sexy rocker chick and an edgy barbie girl”. Brooke is one of those women who proves that a beautiful blonde can be much more than a Barbie girl in all pink, instead, she’s the Barbie that wears leather and listens to Pantera, but can still rock the pink when she wants. Brooke’s style inspiration is drawn from many places, but when asked to pick her top style icon, she says,

“Victoria Beckham is my fashion icon because she is always put together and up with the latest trends and fashions all while being a mother also.”

Sounds like Brooke has been on top of that one all on her own!

Pink Jeffrey Campbells

How many women do you know that can feed a family in 5.5 inch Jeffrey Campbells? This chick right here. Taking care of a home and taking care of yourself are no reason to stop wearing some fierce kicks, and here is the proof. Brooke has a killer collection of Jeffs, and this shoe is a perfect unity of Barbie and Hair Banger.

When asked to describe an average day in the life of Brooke, she explains,

“I get the kids off to school in the morning, workout, get ready for work then come home and make dinner for the family and then usually watch our family shows together.”

Right now, the favorite family show is “Ink Master”, quite appropriate considering Jay’s tattoo collection, Indiyah’s plans for ink of her own, and Aliyah’s dreams to be a tattoo artist herself one day.

Just a sample of Jay's killer ink!

Macaroni is an easy pleaser, but Brooke’s brood loves when she cooks them her roast and potatoes!

Brooke’s style usually consists of killer kicks, a sexy band tee, and a hot pair of shorts, leggings, or jeans:
My favorite online store to shop at is Nastygal.com and Blackheartlingerie.com and my favorite stores to shop at are VonMaur, Hot Topic or Forever 21. My fav brand for jeans is True Religion, shoes is Jeffrey Campbell, and shirts is Chaser.”

If done correctly, even grunge can look a little glam, especially with another pair of Jeffrey’s. Brooke has every rocker chicks dream closet, but she would love to own a leather jacket and some sexy leather pants from Toxic Vision.

To get her perfect Barbie look and flawless skin, Brooke has developed her own beauty regiment that includes body, skin and hair.

I teach an ab class twice a week and in addition I workout for an hour 3 times a week. I get my hair highlighted religiously every 4 weeks and only use professional hair care products. I also get my nails done every 4 weeks as well but paint them myself every week. I apply makeup EVERYDAY!! All my skincare is Clinique!

Among Brooke’s rock and fashion icons, is rock and roll’s “first lady” and Playboy legend, Pamela Anderson. Brooke and Pam don’t only share the commonalities of platinum locks and killer bods, but they are both great moms, animal lovers and passionately in love with rock.

I have been a Pam Anderson fan since I was 12. I love her overall appearance and she seems to be a very sweet and down to earth woman and is also a good mom.” says Brooke of her ultimate idol.

To capture a classic Pam look, Brooke made the almost effortless transformation into the infamous, Barb Wire, originally played by Pam Anderson.

Don't call her babe!

Fitness is a big part of Brooke’s life and should be for anyone who wants to pull off an outfit like this. If you want to know her fitness secrets, take notes, she’s willing to share!

“I do kickboxing 3 days a week along with teaching my ab class 2 days a week. My motivation is how I look and feel after a workout and keeping my body in great shape even after having kids. I love to listen to Five Finger Death Punch while working out!!”

To sum it all up, Brooke is an amazing woman with a big heart, sweet soul, a fabulous wardrobe and killer taste in music. She is a person to admire for staying true to herself throughout motherhood and teaching her children to be fearless individuals in the day and age of phonies and followers. That is what Tio Trash is all about; style, imagination, energy and individuality. She is a real life example of how to make your life truly your own, and her outfits are  a great visual representation of this.

Brooke and Jay have an enviable love for one another and represent a true partnership and friendship as a couple. The tight family bonds, sibling love, openness and sharing in this home are what most parents should take a note on. Many people would possibly pass judgement on the concerts and music they enjoy as a family, but these kids will be some of the rare few that are raised with a REAL music education and a mature understanding of the world of rock. They may be mini metal heads, but I have not been around sweeter or more polite and well behaved kids as Aliyah, Indiyah, and Priest, and they have a genuine respect for mom and dad, not to mention, they are ahead of their years with their great movie and music interests.

Brooke shows us that “settling down” doesn’t have to mean giving up your freedom and sense of self. She really does it all! She works, works out, travels, takes care of the kiddos and the fur and feather children, wears amazing clothes, goes to the best of concerts and lives a rich and loving life. These are the type of people that families need to model themselves after so there can be more lasting love between parents and wonderful kids who grow up confident in the individuals that they are.

THANK YOU’S + CREDITS:

Brooke, THANK YOU! Thank you for opening your doors to the Tio Trash team and readers, you are an authentic example of everything I try to portray in my styling and daily beliefs on life. And thank you to Jay, Aliyah, Indiyah, and Priest for your excellent ideas and modeling skills! What an amazing family!
