The Wise Brunette is about living a happy life inspired by fashion, interiors, health, and beauty.

With a bit of wisdom from a natural brunette, I want to help you find your own style.  I hope to inspire you with fashion, interiors, and beautiful images.  When it comes to entertaining, etiquette, and being the perfect host, I hope to be able to let you in on a few little secrets.  In the kitchen, I’ll help you cook delightful appetizers, delicious meals, and mouthwatering desserts — some of which will be gluten free!  I’ll also advise you on refreshing seasonal cocktails, the perfect wine pairings, and the concoction of a much needed cocktail for the off-chance that your recipe goes awry.  This blog is intended to inspire and empower.  I challenge you to envision a combination of health, beauty, and style that creates the ultimate form confidence!

The Brunette Behind it All:

Hello, all!  I’m Amanda Gill and I’m the brunette running the show on this blog.  I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising; studied styling and trend forecasting in Paris; and dabbled in interior design.  I have a love for all things historic and currently run an online vintage shop, The Brass Giraffe.  I also have a love for fashion design and am working on a handbag line.  As the daughter and granddaughter of independent business owners on both sides of my family, I have a true passion for small businesses.  I’m currently in a relationship with the love of my life and we have a German Shepherd-Collie mix who spends his days by my side as I work.  We’re a little obsessed with him.
