195: Intentionality & Designing Your Ideal Day



Helena has been celebrating Lunar New Year in Vietnam and Charlotte has THE BEST handbag pill box organiser (yes we are very excited about this!) We also have a catch up about the new Taylor Swift album announcement before we chat about intentionality in designing your day-to-day.

This isn’t about having a big “woo” conversation about intentionality, but more about making conscious decisions to include things that bring joy or purpose in your daily life. We talk about morning routines or good habits to create purpose and being proactive in designing a life you enjoy, rather than letting life happen to you.

194: The Joy Of Embracing Girlhood



Last year it felt like we had the summer of “girlhood” and suddenly embracing all the light hearted, fun, girlie things became more acceptable. We had Barbie and The Eras Tour, friendship bracelets and pink EVERYTHING. It was fun, inclusive, positive and just joyful. So we want to talk about how after years of hiding away from our softer feminine energy we’re finally embracing and enjoying it

193: Is Being High Maintenance Such A Bad Thing?



We’re back from another unscheduled hiatus (life happens!) and we’re can’t wait to dive into this week’s topic. We’re discussing the idea of being high maintenance, what does it *actually* mean and who even cares if someone is high maintenance. Is it just a misogynistic term that’s thrown at women too easily or it is just rooted within jealousy and comparison to others? We talking about why having high standards and wanting to take care of yourself is never a bad thing, but also how it’s truly no one’s business if you’re the one maintaining yourself.

After our conversation I had a look into the work ‘queer’ and (like so many things) it looks like there’s a lot of different opinions on who, if anyone should use the word to describe people in the LGBTQ+ community. If I offended anyone by using the word as a straight woman, then I’m sorry. These two articles were great in helping me get a bit more context on the history of the word and how it’s being reclaimed. We’re always learning and trying to do better, and that’s what this podcast is all about!
