Ghosts Book Club

This week we finally get to discuss our November Book Club pick, Ghosts by Dolly Alderton. This book captured modern dating in a way we haven?t seen before, and honestly, we can?t agree on if the ending was satisfying or not. Ghosts follows Nina Dean, a London woman in her early thirties with a successful career as a food writer and loving friends and family. When she downloads a dating app, she meets a great guy on her first date. When Max tells Nina he's going to marry her on date one, it feels like all is going to plan. But when Max ghosts her, Nina is forced to deal with everything she's been trying so hard to ignore.

A Special Place for Women Book Club

It?s book club week and this month we?re talking about A Special Place for Women by Laura Hankin. Capturing start-up culture can be a hit or miss, and we really think Laura Hankin got it right in this book. A Special Place for Women follows a daring reporter who infiltrates an exclusive female-run members club, whose members are far more powerful than she imagined.

We also talk about not knowing what?s next, Becca?s Sweater status, and Grace?s accidental trespassing adventure.

All About Birthdays!

Since we both celebrated our birthdays recently, we thought it would be fun to spend today?s episode reminiscing and looking forward.

We reminisce on our most memorable birthdays as kids, have a very in-depth conversation about ice cream cake, and talk about how 40th birthday parties are the year to go ALL OUT. We also talk about aging and if/how milestone birthdays spark anxiety about getting older.

Also, Grace recaps her Vienna trip, Becca talks about her trip upstate, and we mourn the loss of a champagne-soaked memory card.

The Magic of Found Objects Book Club

It?s finally time for The Magic of Found Objects Book Club! This Book felt totally different than others we?ve read recently and we?re so excited to talk about it! 

The story follows Phronsie, who was conceived at Woodstock by a free-spirited hippie mother and a practical farmer father. All her life she?s been torn between the two. After trying her hand at the NYC dating scene, her childhood best friend proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other. After Phronsie agrees, she meets someone who makes a case for revisiting romance. While her stepmother argues for the safety of the engagement, her birth mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, and Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers.

In addition to talking all about the book, we also talk about Becca?s trip to Palm Beach, Grace?s birthday party prep, and the struggle of being a beginner again at something you used to be great at.

The Last Thing He Told Me Book Club

This month we read The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave, one of both of our favorite authors. We were already HUGE Laura Dave fans (she?s also the author of Eight Hundred Grapes and Hello Sunshine), and we were so excited to see her branch into totally new territory with a thriller! In the book, Hannah Hall?s husband, Owen, disappears after only one year of marriage, leaving behind a note that reads: ?Protect Her.? Her is Owen?s teen daughter Bailey. Hannah and Bailey work together to unravel the mystery of Owen?s true identity and why he disappeared.

Our Interior Designers, Erin Gates & Emma Beryl, Chat All Things Home Decor.

Whenever either one of us do a Q&A we get asked about working with an interior designer, so today we wanted to invite our friends (and interior designers!) Erin Gates & Emma Beryl to chat. Emma and Erin demystify the entire process of working with a designer (yes, even pricing!). They also share their experiences working with us, their favorite places to find great deals on decor items, and their thoughts on where to splurge and where to save. We also talk about ways to decorate a rental without breaking your budget. Best of all, they share their personal pet peeves when it comes to decorating.

Post Vax Life: What We?re Wearing & Where We?re Going

Last week we reflected back on quarantine and the positive things that came from it. Now that we are both fully vaccinated we thought it would be fun to look forward. This week, we are looking toward the future and thinking about life post-pandemic. We (unsurprisingly) are excited about travel and actually getting dressed again. Although we have very different ideas of what getting dressed looks like these days, we are still both excited to refresh our wardrobes and share our favorite purchases so far. We are also itching for some vacations, beaches, and most of all - getting Becca to Charleston to see Grace!

Favorite Snacks, Chores That Give Us A Rush, and The Brighter Side of Quarantine.

Today?s episode is a real grab bag! We start out with a topic close to Grace?s heart: snacks. We compare our snacking habits, our favorite snacks, and more. We also touch on our favorite chores (and our least favorites too!). You have probably never met two people who feel so strongly about doing laundry. And as we get closer to the end of quarantine and life going back to (almost?) normal, we also reflect on some bright sides of quarantine and what we are looking forward to now that we?ll both be fully vaccinated.

Delicious! By Ruth Reichl Book Club

Today is Book Club, and this month we read Delicious! By Ruth Reichl. The book tells the story of Billie Breslin, who learns at a young age she has an impeccable palate. Years later she drops out of college and moves from California to NYC to work for Delicious!, the country?s most prominent food magazine. Her life changes drastically as she forms new relationships with colleagues at the magazine, chefs, and shop owners. When Delicious! is unexpectedly shut down, Billie is kept on board to honor the Delicious! Guarantee, which is how she discovers a cache of letters from 12-year-old Lulu Swan to the famous chef James Beard from WWII. From there, Billie embarks on a culinary scavenger hunt through the library and ultimately to Akron, OH to find the adult Lulu Swan. We really enjoyed this book and we hope you did too!

Clark?s Botanicals Founder, Francesco Clark, on How Vanity Saved His Life

In today?s episode we are joined by Francesco Clark, the founder of the clean beauty brand Clark?s Botanicals. Francesco shares the origin story of Clark?s Botanicals: When he suffered a devastating spinal cord injury, he found himself paralyzed. One unexpected side effect of his paralysis was that his body could no longer sweat? and as a result, his skin changed dramatically. Together with his father (a doctor trained in homeopathy), they created Clark?s Botanicals. Francesco explains the chemistry behind their active ingredient the Jasmine Catalyst Complex and chats about favorite products. He also also shares how he started the company, sold it, and bought it back. Francesco and his brand are pretty much the definition of resilience in our eyes, we hope you enjoy hearing from him as much as we did!

Listener Q&A: Big Life Decisions, Career Moves, Daily Routines, + More!

Grace has made it safe and sound to Charleston and we were due for catch up! We put a call out in the Facebook group for questions, and we tackle them all in today?s episode. We share our favorite book podcasts, how we choose what to read next, how we manage our day, and give advice to a listener on a big life decision. We also answer questions about if job hunting is all who you know, how to make friends in a pandemic (or in a new city), managing zoom fatigue, and the age-old question: is NYC worth the money?

 

We had so much fun answering your questions! Let us know if you would like to hear more Q&A episodes in the Facebook group!

Childhood Nostalgia: Pogs, Beanie Babies, Starter Jackets, and Mall Culture

Today?s episode was the last one we recorded together while Grace was living in Brooklyn! As we embark on a new (remote) era of the podcast we thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane and talk about all of our childhood favorite things. As two weird kids (and now, weird adults), there were a lot of fun and silly memories to share. We share the things that we collected, the foods we coveted (and our strange bagged lunches), our love for the mall and our favorite childhood books.

Unpopular opinions: controversial things we love + hate

Between Grace?s upcoming move to Charleston and Becca?s immersion in RomComPods Season 3 production, we realized we haven?t had much time to catch up! So this week is a little off the rails grab-bag episode where we embrace all of our most unpopular opinions on popular things, and the other way around. It?s always fun to unearth more things that we don?t know about each other. This includes but is definitely not limited to our trash people tendencies, lowbrow loves, overrated beauty products... and to be honest - a lot of thoughts on cheese.

An Interview with Frances Cha, author of If I Had Your Face

Today we spoke with Frances Cha, the author of our February book club pick -  If I Had Your Face. Frances is a NYC-based author who splits her time between the US and Seoul. She shares her experiences researching plastic surgery, room salons, and mental health for the book. We discuss the way she developed her characters to each embody a different theme of Korean culture, the journey to finally releasing the book during the pandemic, and what she?s working on now!

If I Had Your Face Book Club

For this month?s book club we read If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha. Just 30 pages into this book, we both knew it had to be our book club pick. Neither of us haven read anything like it before and there is so much to talk about. The story revolves around 4 women who all live in the same apartment building in contemporary Seoul, South Korea. The book explores impossible beauty standards and strict social hierarchies, fangirling over K-POP bands, jealousy, relationships, sex work and room salons. We discuss plastic surgery, the fast-paced Korean Beauty market, the feelings around family and marriage in Korea, and more. 

Join us in the  Facebook group and let us know your thoughts on this month?s pick!

An Interview with Elizabeth Gilbert

Today we are joined by Elizabeth Gilbert the New York Times best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love, City of Girls, and (of course!) our January Book Club pick Big Magic. We talk about her decision to write Big Magic and the writing process behind it. She shares her unique perspectives on creativity and how every person can find and grow in that space. She talks about staying actively (and not-so actively) creative during the pandemic, ditching social media for the greater good, and learning how to be kind to yourself. If you have been needing some motivation this is the 2021 pep talk you have been waiting for!

Big Magic Book Club

We found it fitting that Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert was our first book club of 2021. Becca reads this book every January to jumpstart her year, and we wanted to include you on her tradition. Reading this book is the creativity pep talk we all need so badly right now. Elizabeth approaches creativity with lightness and joy. Even if you don?t consider yourself a creative person, you will take so much away from this book. We touch on each chapter and our biggest takeaways and share our own journeys with creativity. We love this book (can you tell?) and we hope you did too! Tell us your thoughts in the FB group and join us tomorrow for a bonus episode with the author!

Azora Zoe Paknad, founder of Goldune, talks Sustainability

In today?s episode we are joined by Azora Zoe Paknad, the founder of Goldune. Before starting Goldune in the middle of the pandemic (in the short span of 5 months!), Azora Zoe worked for Food52 and before that, she was Grace?s social media intern at BaubleBar! She has worked in the ecommerce and content space for years and when quarantine started she got to work and started her own e-commerce site, selling the best sustainable homewares. Azora Zoe shares the intense process of building a company and her personal journey to this point. We talk about reusable straws, food storage tips, product swaps and shocking recycling facts. Do you know what a soapberry is? Neither did we! We got a crash course in sustainability and we hope this helps you find little ways you can make changes in your everyday life that will work towards a healthier planet.

2021 Resolutions

It?s the time of year where we reflect on past resolutions and create new ones for the new year ahead. As we look back on the insanity of 2020 and the way that it affected our goals and ability to achieve them, we found some silver linings! Although we are definitely cautious as we set our 2021 goals, we?re also optimistic. We talk about our personal, business, and mental and physical health resolutions and the steps we are taking to get there. Whether you like to make resolutions or you just like to wing it, we support it! If we learned anything in 2020, it?s that this year needs to be about being good to yourself.

The Cousins Book Club

For the last book club of 2020, we chose The Cousins by Karen McManus. This is a twisty YA thriller, sans murder - making it kind of the perfect book for both of us! This is the tale of Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story: three cousins who barely know each other but are invited to work at their estranged grandmother?s resort. All of their parents have been disinherited and the cousins learn more and more about the dark secrets of their family?s past. We chat about which cousins we relate to most, our theories about the ending, and our interest in the psyche of the adult characters. We both really enjoyed this book and we hope you did too!
