December Book Club: Little Women
This is our last episode of 2019! We'll be back in 2020! Weekly Love and Hate Christine Love: My niece and nephews Christmas lists contained so many books!!!! Lindsay Love: Marriage Story on Netflix Christine Hate: If I have to choose where to eat one more time…... Lindsay Hate: Swore-in new Governor today (thank goodness) but the old one wouldn’t move out of the mansion. LOL. Also - Tinsley left RHONY. Book Club Discussion Book Club questions found on Victoriamag.com Do you think the traditional “little women” roles celebrated in Louisa May Alcott’s classic are outdated in today’s society? What ideals do you believe are timeless? Who is your favorite character in Little Women, and why? Which character do you most identify with, and why? In Chapter One, Marmee reads a letter from Mr. March in which he exhorts the girls to “fight their bosom enemies bravely.” For Jo, her enemy was her temper; for Amy, it was her vanity. What would you consider to be your own bosom enemy? Have you discovered a way to manage it? Although the narrator is able to offer insight from each of the main characters, Jo’s voice rings above the others throughout the pages. How do you think the novel would differ if a sister other than Jo was the central character? Were you disappointed that Jo did not marry Laurie? Or do you think Professor Bhaer was better suited for her? Why? The complexities of sibling relationships—a jumble of childhood games, petty squabbles, family traditions, deep frustrations, and fierce loyalty—play out on every page of the novel. What moments best or most precisely illustrate the bonds between sisters? What scenes from Little Women linger in your mind long after you have closed the book?

Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult?
Weekly Love Christine: Schitt’s Creek (Pregnancy Test Episode) Ew, David Doormat Lindsay: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (in Truffle) Weekly Hate Christine: The weather we’ve been having (Hot, Cold, Rainy, etc) Lindsay: The Nordstrom Sale posts starting early (as of June 17) and telling people to open the Nordstrom card (bad advice to suggest people get in debt to shop a sale early) Christine and Lindsay both shop the sale and use the credit card, but feel talking about it a month early is overkill. The Nordstrom sale begins on July 12th. Will you be shopping it? Discussing friendships as an adult The episode opens with a background on Christine’s and Lindsay’s friendships as 30-something, childless women. We discuss: How difficult it is to meet new people Putting yourself out there Making friends within local blog communities Age disparity in the blogging world Bumble BFF How hard it is to make friends as an introvert Toxic friendships and “vampires” And more! We also answer listener questions/thoughts, including: Trying to make friends while dealing with infertility/being child-free How hard it is to keep female friendships going Jealousy Women who change who they are around others Tips for creating lasting friendships Don’t forget: July Book Club: Columbine by Dave Cullen Going live on July 31st Join our Facebook group for book discussions and more!

June Book Club (The Idea of You)
Weekly Love Lindsay: Digit Money Saving App (https://digit.co/r/WkxLbgoI7f?wn) (Referral Link) Lindsay featured this money saving app in a previous blog post (http://bourbonlipstickandstilettos.com/2019/05/things-that-make-my-life-easier/). If you have any questions, be sure to turn to her post for more information! Christine: Harry’s Fig Body Wash (http://bit.ly/2FwjhEY) (Affiliate Link) Christine mentioned this as her weekly love for this episode. It’s under $10.00 and smells incredible! Available where they sell Harry’s (http://bit.ly/2ZKj2xC) and available in two other scents. Weekly Hate Lindsay: Lack of diversity in the blogging world. Ever pay attention to blogger events? Alicia Tenise said it best (https://twitter.com/AliciaTenise/status/1141694857372676096). Christine: Shopping for men, in particular, for Father’s Day. It’s often impossible to shop for certain people in your life. Right!?!? An update my FIL received an outfit for Tennis and dinner! I’m sure you were all on the edge of your seat waiting for that update, LOL!   Discussing The Idea of You By Robinne Lee This episode opens up discussion for our first ever book club pick for the podcast. We chose The Idea of You (https://amzn.to/2Ry1T7A) as it is a book that really took us by surprise! It’s sexy, it’s thought provoking, and it’s a great Summer read! It brings up a lot of important topics such as ageism, feminism and sexism. However, I think that most importantly, it shows us that a woman can be desirable, even at an age where we’re told that we can’t be.       This book will have you wanting to pack your bags and head on tour with Hayes. It will have you blushing as the scenes are VERY descriptive. It will leave you asking yourself a lot of questions even after you finish reading this book. Bottom line, it’s a must-read book!     Visit our website: InfluencedThePodcast.com (http://www.influencedthepodcast.com/index.php/2019/06/26/episode4theideaofyou/)
