Episode 10. What Its's Like Living at Home With Your Parents and What I've Learned
Today’s topic of family and living at home with my parents is requiring me to get real and get reflective about my own issues and problems. And that’s because this is wayyyy harder for me to be personal about and share. When my family makes up so much of my life and I care about what my parent's think even though I want to be independent, there's some tension there. And though it hard, we're exploring that today So I’m going to share the tea about what it’s been like living at home with my parents at the age of 38: and spoiler alert, many of my current insecurities are connected to this because I talk about the things I can do better.  As always, thank you for being here, and for walking with me through this journey to enjoying this season.

Episode 9. Comfy Girl Summer and Body Acceptance
For the first time, I'm not thinking about having a cute girl summer: It's all about being comfy, with my clothes and with my body.  As a plus size woman, I have had a life long struggle with accepting my size: but an incident my freshman year in college impacted how much insecurity I carried with me about how others, especially men saw me. But I had a breakthrough this year where I stopped being overly conscious of how others saw me and started wearing what I wanted and finding my confidence in other ways.  In this episode, I share how I made peace with my big bones and give you some suggestions for getting more comfortable with your own body and even showing it gratitude.  As always, thank you for being here, and for walking with me through this journey to enjoying this season.

Episode 8. The 2022 Summer Bucketlist
What time is it? SUMMERTIME IS FINALLY HERE. And so is my 2022 Summer bucket list! The bucket list is a list of the things that my and my friends will be prioritizing this summer so that when we look back on May, June, July, August, and a bit of September we know what we did. It's a great way to plan if you 1) hate wasting time and 2) need to plan your social calendar so you can pace yourself to socialize and have your alone time.  The summer bucket list starts in May and concludes the weekend of Labor Day in September:  Some of our big items: Disneyland, Memorial Day potluck, July 4th bbq, karaoke, beach bonfire, and San Diego Taco run.  Listen in for some guidelines for planning your own bucket list and ideas for you and your squad.  Follow me on Instagram to see the photos and videos as we make our way through the list. ---- Have a question for me to answer about the tumultuous 20's or ideas for your Summer?

Episode 7. Dealing with Change Even if You Don't Do Well with Change
Making peace with change is one of the most challenging things in life, but it's also one constant in life: things are never the same for long. So how do you are like me and you like security, and hate the unknown? I have four phases that I go through and I'm sharing my mindset in each of them when I moved back home to Los Angeles after living in the Bay Area for 9 years.  ✨ Grieve  ✨ Gratitude  ✨ Give Yourself Time ✨ Go Forward Whether you are going through a good change in life like a promotion/new job or a challenging one like moving away or losing someone, this might help you even explain to someone else what you're going through:  ---- Have a question for me to answer about the tumultuous 20's or moving to a new city?

Episode 6. Things to Not Say to Your Single Friends and What to Ask Instead
Though we were all once single, it seems like some people forget what it was like when they talk to people still in that season of life and there are questions I've heard so many times over the years that are discouraging and stall the conversation because I don't know how to respond to questions about my love life, social life, and assumptions about my future.   This episode tackles 5 of the ones I've heard the most and reframes how to approach the conversation with questions and feedback that is more positive and encourages openness on both ends.  ---- Have a question for me to answer about making friends or being a good one?

Episode 4: Should I break up with a toxic friend? Let's talk about adult friendships.
We thought navigating our friendships as teenagers were brutal: but it isn't exactly easier as an adult. In fact, we bring a lot of our baggage into our friendships but I want to help you navigate this. I answer the question "How do I know if someone is a toxic friend?" with some introspection and more tea time by sharing how I was a bad friend in the past and learned to turn over a new leaf.  I also share how to handle different versions of overbearing, negative, and challenging friendships and how to reset some boundaries.  ---- Have a question for me to answer about making friends or being a good one?

Episode 3: How My Dream Guy Criteria Changed and Dawson’s Creek
The tea is pretty hot for this episode: one of the most frequently asked questions I get asked is what is "What are you looking for in a guy?" but today's episode answers a slight spin on that with me answering how what I'm looking for now, compared to what I looked for in my 20's.  I'm taking you guys back through time and through some of my biggest loves and heartbreaks to explain why I chucked my list of 19+ things I was looking for in a future husband to focus on just 5 things now.  ---- Have a question for me to answer or what to share what you're looking for in a partner?
