I know, I know. I typically publish a Le Haute Paire episode every other week, but this one was just too good for me to sit on for a week. Xav joins me this week and we're discussing all things Black, cancel culture, Beyoncé, the importance of naps and even veganism! Reading all of that makes it sound a bit like it's all over the place, but I promise it all flows.
I've only known Xav for a little over a month, but it felt like I was sitting down and talking with an old friend as we talked about what it was like being a speck of pepper in certain situations, and how even though we grew up states apart we have shared experiences. He's always on the move, speaking to students and young adults about empowerment and when he's not doing that he's sharing his love of all things plant based with the world on Instagram (@theplantbasedbrotha) and Youtube. In fact, he's gearing up to launch the website next month so stay tuned for that!
In the meantime, enjoy this episode and feel free to reach out to me or Xav via email or DMs if you have any questions or feedback!
Valentines Day is this week, so I thought a follow-up episode to our Millennial Dating one was long-overdue! I have Rhys back on the mic with me and we're sharing updates on our relationships (or lack thereof), talking about hot topics like B. Smith and Ciara and even sharing our Valentine plans. So grab your boo (current or long-term) and take a listen below!
Remember that you can always reach out to me at @andallthatjazie on Instagram and Twitter, and you can find Rhys at @rhysism on Instagram and @rhysism_ on Twitter!
Hey y'all! I'm back with another episode, and this one's about a topic that's REALLY close to my heart. TRAVELING! I'm joined this week by a friend who I actually met in a Facebook group about traveling, and I knew that I had to have Armond join me for this week's show because he's passionate about this subject as well. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and grab a pen because we'll be sharing some of our favorite traveling tips and tricks that we've picked up throughout our years of exploring the world!
And we're back with another episode! This time I'm interviewing someone I've known and respected for a LONG time. We ran in the same circles in high school, but didn't meet officially until we interned together. Since then she's gone on to do GREAT things both professionally and personally and I knew I had to have her on LHP. Terah's dropping all kinds of knowledge in today's episode and I have to encourage you to follow her new Youtube channel where she'll be sharing even more knowledge with y'all about financial freedom, couponing, planning and tidying tools!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We're back with another episode of 'Le Haute Paire' and my friend, Nisha is co-hosting this episode with me. Instead of the standard "new year, new me" vibe we're discussing "new year, new beginnings"! We're discussing goals, resolutions and literal new beginnings! So take a listen and let us know your 'One Little Word' or new years resolutions!
We are back because we couldn't stay away. This topic has been on quite a few tongues recently and we Tavaria and I wanted to dive into the mess that is 'struggle love'. We were taught to "say no to drugs" at a young age, but no one said anything about struggle love. Well all of that is changing now and we're shedding some light and dropping some knowledge today. From Cardi to kids of divorce, there isn't much that's off-limits in today's episode so grab holiday drink and tune in!
We're diving into a deep topic on this episode of 'Le Haute Paire' with one of my friends! Mallory and I are talking about our mental health wellness journey; how we've grown because we allowed ourselves to be vulnerable and talk about the hard things. We also shared a few laughs, busted up some myths and she even shared some news about a few dope upcoming events! Grab a mug of coffee or tea, take a listen and be sure to leave us your feedback!
Hey y'all! We are back with another episode of 'Le Haute Paire'!! My cousin is back on the mic with me and it feels like home, and y'all know we had to go in on some current events as well as share some ways to respectfully hold your ground during the holidays. Thanksgiving is next week and you might have some people at the dinner table who need a clapback so we shared some tips on how to do that and avoid getting smacked by your parents.
We also discussed some election results, victories and upsets and how this is an exciting time for Dems! We even touched on some of the tragedies that have occurred in California recently and wanted to share some resources with y'all in case you feel inclined to contribute to the wildfire relief efforts.
Remember to keep not only those who have had to evacuate the area in your thoughts and prayers, but the brave women and men who the emergency personnel, and those volunteering their time to fight the fires.
This is a special episode of 'Le Haute Paire'! It's Halloween this week so I'm sharing some of my fun memories and why I'm still not a fan of scary movies, but I also get to interview a really awesome author/executive trainer/professor/global speaker/Wonder Woman! Orobosa Owie is joining me for this episode and we're talking about how it's okay not to be okay, but that you shouldn't stay that way.
Hey y'all! We're back again with another episode of Le Haute Paire, and once again we're touching on a deep topic. Pressure. It's something we deal with when it comes to society, our family, friends, strangers on social media, it's honestly everywhere. We discussed some of the pressures that we as women face, and other pressures that we had to deal with growing up. We know that these weren't the only ones who had to deal with them, and we hope that our discussion and tips help you deal with the pressures you're facing, or at least open your eyes and spark the conversation on how to best deal with them. We'd love to hear from y'all so feel free to comment below or send us a message!

We're back with another episode and this one's another heavy topic: bullying. Yesterday was 'World Suicide Prevention Day' and we thought what better time to talk about this than now. We see it in the news all the time, kids committing suicide because they were bullied, adults carrying that hurt from their younger years and lashing out and even bullying in the workplace. This is a topic that we as a society know all too well, whether you were the bully or if you were bullied this episode is for you. Please feel free to join the conversation by messaging us on Instagram or Twitter.
Just as the title of this blog post suggests, we're talking about topics that are typically seen as taboo in the Black community. Therapy, domestic violence and predators are just a few of the things we're discussing as well as the all day event that was Auntie Aretha's (fune)ral. So grab your coffee or tea and hit play below! Don't forget that you can join the conversation by leaving us comments below or reaching out to us on our social media platforms, Twitter and Instagram.
We were gone for a minute, now we're back with the jump-off…well more like a new podcast episode. We took a bit of a break, but we're back and talking about one of our favorite topics.
We're talking about some of the things we need in relationships, a "King" vs "Prince Charming", how some of our favorite R&B bops from the 90's were actually trash, and of course some of our favorite celebrity couples. So do yourself a favor and pour yourself a cup of tea (or fix a glass of sweet tea if you're in the South like us) and get ready to nod along and yell at your speaker/computer/headphones/whatever device you use to listen to this episode.
This week's podcast is about a topic near and dear to a lot women's hearts. Hair. Tav and I dive deep into the world of natural hair, weaves and perms oh my! We talk about products that remind us of our childhood, products we love today; and we even discuss weaves vs extensions (spoiler alert: THEY'RE THE SAME THING).
Hey y'all! We're back with another episode of Le Haute Paire, and this episode is kind of a continuation of last week's post! We shared some tips on how to get the most of out of a trip to the rodeo as well as some of our favorite rodeo memories. Tav talked about the time when she witnessed Patti LaBelle throw her shoe in person, and I even mentioned the time my ex won me a stuffed Nemo that was almost as big as me! We also talked about our favorite rodeo concerts and of course, Selena's famous one came up.
We're back with another episode of 'Le Haute Paire', and this week's episode is one that's close to my heart. The topic of police brutality, especially in minority communities has been a hot topic these past few years. It's not something that's new, people are just speaking up more often about it now. Whether it's because we're fed up or because social media has allowed us to let the world see what's been going on this topic has been in the news quite a bit recently.
I wanted to bring on two guests I think were perfect for this topic. Not only are they adults that I've looked up to my whole life because they're my aunt and uncle, but they have decades of peace officer experience between the two of them. Almost 40 years in fact. I wanted them to come on because people have misconstrued the 'Black Lives Matter' message and movement, and I knew that they could set it straight and in a way that everyone could understand.
We're back at it again with another episode of 'Le Haute Paire'!! This week's episode is exactly what my spirit needed, a little bit of girl talk! We were joined by Jae and Jordan, two wonderful ladies who dropped gems on a wide variety of topics. So take check out the episode below and listen to us go in on John Gray's 'Spirit of a Wife' sermon, our current beauty routines, the 'Times Up' movement and more!
We know it's a new year, but we wanted to take it back a bit...well a lot! This episode is all about our childhood and how we grew up. From the reason behind why Jaz now avoids top bunks to Tav getting chased by bees while selling "perfume" (baby food jars filled with flowers and water) we have it all!
We took a different approach with this week's episode, and decided to only talk about one thing. Relationships. Whether you're swiping right on a Tinderella or Fella or you have the movie worthy meet cute, this episode is for you!
Hey y’all and happy new year! We’re back with a new episode for the new year, and we even have a guest host helping us out.

We’re back at it again with another episode of ‘Le Haute Paire’, and this one’s a recap of the year.

I know I usually share a song or a playlist with you guys on Tuneage Tuesday, but this week is going to be something a little bit different.
