    Episode #22: Q&A: Morning routine practices, Nutrition, Values systems and more | A Solo Episode

    PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (14).png

    EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


    "I was always trying to be this perfect, in the box, version of myself. And I wasn't exploring and breaking beyond those barriers, and allowing myself to dig deep as I have in the past few years."

    Today's episode is super special to me for a few reasons.

    For one, I have one of the most important people in my life on the podcast. I had the joy of getting to travel back to Canada for my 10 year high school reunion in June (does anyone else feel like time flies by SO quickly?) and three of my best girlfriends from all areas of the world and I spent the weekend at my lake cottage to start the bon voyage to the boobs celebrations.

    It was such a magical weekend filled with love, laughter, goofy shiz and I had the honor of having my oldest friend, Caroline, flip the script and interview ME for this edition of our Solo episode series.

    Caroline and I have known each other for over 15 years and while we have taken super different paths in life, she is hands down the person who knows me better than anyone -- so it felt only natural to have her on the podcast!

    It's also super special because I chat about a lot of topics that I've never shared about on the podcast before, specifically my journey through high school and where I'm currently at with my nutrition and mindset.

    Here are a few things we cover in today's episode:

    • Morning routines
    • Some of my must reads and how I choose my personal development books
    • How to ride the waves of life
    • My top 3 personal values at the moment
    • My personal mindset around nutrition and what I think of the trendy diets right now
    • How I healed my eczema
    • The high school me and how it impacted who I am today
    • Breaking free of the "box" and the bucket list life  
    • My dream guest to have on the pod

      " There is so much power in sharing the mess along the way too because hello - we are messy humans. We are not this picture perfect wrapped in a present version of ourselves. We are constantly going through it and if we don't believe that there is strength in that, then how can other people feel that it's ok to not have their shit together too?"

      When you hear the word strength, what images come up for you?

      For so many years, my concept of what it meant to be strong was so skewed, and it wasn't until super recently that everything shifted for me. 

      Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

      • My plans for the long weekend
      • Our definitions of strength as a society
      • Physical strength and why it's so important to me

      • The saga of not enoughness
      • Social media & its influence on our perceptions of what it means to be strong

      "A lot of the times we have stories going on in our heads about sex or pleasure in our heads that we don't even know are there. And they're from the media or our familIes or 'Mom told me that if you do x y and z you're a slut' so I can't do those things, and you have no idea that that's playing in the background the whole time and that's why you're not orgasm-ing in bed."

      What would it look like to revolutionize how we share, teach, and talk about sex, relationships, and mental health? That’s exactly what Rachel + Kyle Wright have set out to do. Wright Wellness Center is bridging the gap between a self-help book and a therapist’s couch — bringing psycho-education to life and equipping people with the tools they need (and that our society doesn't teach us!) to have fulfilling and healthy relationships and lives. 

      Here are a few things we discussed in today’s episode:

      • The story of how Rachel & Kyle met
      • The effect building a business together has had on their marriage
      • Where my love of post it notes started

      • How to actually understand the emotions you and your partner are experiencing
      • How to get back to being intimate when you've lost the spark in your relationship

      PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (2).png

      EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


      " It all started with a cleanse for me...it propelled me into this whole dieting world. I went raw vegan for a while and this is what I consider my anorexic phase. I was eating nothing but raw vegetables and cold soups. I was so malnourished and I held onto that for over a year."

      Rini Frey is a fitness instructor, TRX trainer and Eating Disorder Recovery online coach, in addition to being a wife and a momma to her Boston Terrier Bruce. She believe that all bodies are beautiful and deserve to be labeled as fit. Being fit and healthy is a feeling more so than a look and she is beyond excited to be part of the body positive movement.

      Her entire adult life was plagued by various eating disorders and now that she is recovered, she's made it her mission to help women embrace their bodies as they are. To focus on what their bodies are capable of, instead of what they look like. 

      Here are a few things we discussed in today’s episode:

      • Her journey battling anorexia and bulimia

      EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


      "Life just became more vivid than it ever had in those 10 years. All of my senses had been heightened and I felt like I was getting to know parts of myself that had been muted for years."

      Claire Baker is an Australian women’s coach and writer based in London. Through her popular blog, eBooks, online courses and live workshops, Claire teaches self-care, creative rekindling, how to live life aligned with your menstrual cycle and being kind to yourself and the world.

She’ll have you throwing out the scales, booking the flight, launching the blog – and falling back in love with your life.

      • Her journey with the birth control pill and why I'm considering going off of it
      • How she lost her period for a year and her journey exploring her hormones
      • Her PCOS diagnosis & my misdiagnosis of the same
      • Libidos & navigating sex as a freaking WOMAN

      Episode #6: Facing Fear Head On | Solo Episode

      PODCAST BLOG PHOTO.png

      EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


      "Some days you feel on top of the world and some days you feel like a hot a** mess. And sometimes you go through something in your life that completely knocks you off your feet -- in amazing ways and in terrifying ways -- and I'm facing the latter right now." 

      This is the last thing I thought I'd be sharing with you on the podcast today.

      On February 6th, 2018, two days after my 27th birthday, I got a call that changed everything. That shook me to my core and has left me processing and spinning and navigating this new found identity.

      I almost didn't share this. 

      But it's my mission to be transparent AF and share the mess and goddamn if this is not the messiest thing in my own life right now.

      And I hope it brings some light to yours. That you feel just a little less alone. And that if you're going through something like this or know someone in your life that is, that this gives you the strength to know that whatever you are facing, you are STRONG enough to navigate it.

      Feel the feels, take action and show up for your goddamn life.

      Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

      • Why I'm in the midst of another "quarter life crisis"
      • The power of your gut
      • Why I chose the word UNAPOLOGETIC for 2018
      • The fear I'm facing every single freaking day
      • The power of a shower sob fest
      • Choosing to be a warrior, not a worrier

      Episode #5: Embracing the woo and the power of human design with Jenna Zoe

      EPISODE SNEAK PEEK 


      " As we're born, we get exposed to so much conditioning that tells us to be anything other than what we are...and it veers us off our path. So really, what it does is that it veers us off our path. So, with human design, the journey to becoming our highest self is not really so much of a becoming but an unbecoming -- because as soon as you take off the resistance wheels, which is all the conditioning you're still holding onto, you naturally bob up into being your highest self without very much effort."

      Jenna Zoe is a London and LA based human design reader. She first came across Human Design when I had my own chart done by a shaman and was so shocked at how accurate it was. She felt pulled to learn more about how and why this new technology has so much truth to share and her own reading was like having a mirror held up to her soul and for the first time. She felt reconnected to the person who she had always hoped she was, underneath all the layers of social conditioning and ego mind. In learning the technical aspect of reading a chart, she discovered she was able to channel messages and receive intuitive downloads for people through Human Design, which is when she felt called to make it her craft.

      Here are a few things we discussed in today’s episode:

      • Her journey from atheist to spiritual leader in the field of human design
      • Her resistance to releasing her food business and stepping in full time to human design readings
      • What the hell human design even is and the history of it all
      • She leads me through my own human design reading and shares how you can start your journey online
      • I am a manifesting generator, and she dives into what that means globally and digs in so beautifully on how this relates to my life specifically
      • Spoiler alert: it's so freaking spot on and I may cry on the pod.
