Hey guys, I’m Abbey. And I want to know the sides of you that you aren’t usually asked to press play on. Your job, your label, that box you think you need to fit inside of w/ that pretty bow you’ve been told to wrap around it? Yeah, that part doesn’t interest me. I wanna know the sides of you that make your insides frolic. That’s what I call your B-Side. Your better side. We all have one. Most of us have more than one. Me? I’m only B-Sides. And for the first time in my life, I’m not only ok with that... I’m really proud of that. And that’s why I wanna meet yours. Join me.
Welcome to the first crossover episode with EverydayChampagne!
Today we talk facial mists and why you should stop buying them.
But never stop using them.
Lots of tips in here. Including what can actually help and prevent the dreaded maskne.
Abbey talks to her new fast friend, Eileen Vincett, about all the different ways one can mother

Abbey talks with her child and adulthood friend, Annie Seier, who is a licensed clinical social worker and therapist. We talk about privilege, dealing with the discomfort of judgment and anger, and what it was like walking people through life during a pandemic.
It’s a beautiful conversation between two women - one who likes to think she has most of the answers... and the other who has the license to prove she probably does.
Firmly Rooted Counseling and Consulting :
Abbey talks to good friend, Justin Burke about his incredible and inspirational twists and turns in life that led him to becoming an award winning pastry chef, food writer and recipe developer, queer food and parenting advocate, and his most rewarding job - father.
I highly encourage you to look him up if you’ve never the pleasure of tasting his food. (I have. And I do not take food praise lightly. He’s the best in the game.) His talent is immeasurable. His heart, and his voice, is fierce.
I am so very proud of this conversation, and all that he is working towards.
Abbey talks to her brother, Drew Droege, about his long career in writing, acting and improv comedy, the 80’s sitcoms that still hold up, and emojis.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure, you know that every conversation with Drew is a thrill.
And this one does not disappoint.
Enjoy the ride, y’all
