Creating something of your own, supporting other women, and Janet Jackson with Laura Brown

September 17, 2018

Laura Brown is the editor-in-chief of InStyle magazine. We originally met when she was working at Harper's Bazaar, and she has always been one of the loveliest people I've known in the fashion industry. She breaks down her entire work history, starting from working at a little Australian magazine called Mode, to where she is now. Laura was kind enough to let me set up all my nerdy podcast gear in her big girl office in downtown NYC.

One of my favorite things about Laura is that she doesn't take herself too seriously, and is, as she states "down to clown". She left me with some great tidbits of advice which I'm stoked I get to share with all of you.

Listen to us talk about creating something of your own, supporting other women, and Janet Jackson.

***The All Woman Project is a non profit foundation aiming to better the lives of girls and women worldwide by displaying true, beautiful, positive and unretouched images of women in photos and video campaigns.

Charli is someone I've followed closely since we first met at the AWP (All Woman Project) + Aerie collaboration party. Watching her journey (mostly online) has been really inspiring. She's as smart and clever as she is beautiful and it was a real treat to do this podcast with her.

Shorts, CBD oil, and hatred of cardio with Jane Belfry

July 9, 2018

My guest this week is Jane Belfry. Jane has a website called The Thicc and it's really fucking rad. Jane comes from a background of writing, personal shopping, and styling, which all point toward creating a platform like The Thicc!

The Thicc is a women's lifestyle website centered around all the good stuff AKA beauty, mental wellness, fashion, and pretty much ALL other things related to our bodies. In starting The Thicc she's hoping to create an open, honest, funny, and candid conversation around EVERY FACET of female identifying people. Amen sister.

I think we talk about every single topic possible, but SOME of the things we mention are affordable therapy, skin care on a budget, HATRED of exercise/cardio, CBD oil, shorts (y'all know how I feel about these- and apparently I'm NOT alone in it), online shopping (and the nightmare of ordering multiple different sizes and hoping one of them fits right), and being okay with not loving EVERY single particle and scar on your body.

You can also head over to The Thicc and read more indepth on a lot of these issues. Which I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, reccomend.

Vision boards, Gaia theory, and being yourself in the fashion industry with Ali Tate Cutler

June 21, 2018

For this episode I’m sitting with Ali Cutler. We met in a very 2018 way… INSTAGRAM! I ended up stalking her online because I loved so many of the pieces she designed in her collaboration with Reformation. We met for the first time the other night where she was dancing up a storm on a concert hall balcony! My kind of girl.

Ali is a model at Muse Management who's based in NYC. She is both a body positivity and environmental advocate. She is also a California native (which could explain her love of nature, maybe?), a lover of pitbulls, a certified yoga instructor, AND a Lord of The Rings fan girl (Gandalf, where you at?)

Listen to us talk about vision boards, hormonal acne, designing clothing collaborations, Gaia Theory (she really broke it down and DAMN it’s amazing), being yourself in the fashion industry, “in-betweenies”, spirituaity, and treating the world with love.

She's @Ali_Tate_Cutler

Fair weather friends, social media rules in relationships, and bringing children into a scary world with Rachael Finley AKA Instasteak

May 10, 2018

I hunted down Rachael Finley (AKA @instasteak) by harassing my other friends and trying to get her number. Her handle was always popping up on my feed and with a name like Steak, I recognized it. She looked like someone I would want to be friends with, and after this podcast… I think we’re real friends now? Rachael- correct me if I’m wrong.

She is a clothing designer/business owner- Her two lines are called Hot Lava and Teenage. She has an advice column called Steak Talk and it’s got a serious following. If you have any questions for Mizz Steak, check it out at http://steaktalk.tumblr.com/. She’s also mom to an incredibly cute four year old girl named Mars, and two gargantuan dogs named Primo and Valentine.

Listen to us talk about bringing kids into the world when you’ve had a challenging childhood, speaking about your feelings to people you’re intimidated by, trying new things, nakedness, Gloria Allred (she interviewed her for Vice and I’m so jealous), social media rules in intimate relationships, and fair weather friends.

I'm... @Atlantabean

And she's @Instasteak

Anonymous: In Honor Of Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April 26, 2018

For those of you who don't know, April is sexual assault awareness month. I thought it would be a good opportunity to focus mostly on that in this episode. This episode is different then others I've put out in that my guest is remaining anonymous. She was willing to sit with me and tell me her story, but preffered to keep it private which I completely understand.

I think it's important to share our conversation with you because I've found that being able to relate to other women who have gone through what I've gone through has truly been one of the most healing things through this entire process. 

We talk a lot about life after the fact, which includes things such as... bad dates, wearing the same clothes for months on end, weight gain, dick cleanses, rude police officers, having your attacker contact you, finding forgiveness, and reclaiming your body in the korean spa. BUT... even through all of the heaviness there are some really good laughs and we definitely find the humor in all of it. 

I hope that these kinds of conversations can help remove the shame around sexual assault. I still struggle with it myself, although it is MUCH MUCH MUCH better then it was when it first happened. My goal in speaking about it is that we can move towards a world where women and girls don't feel as ashamed, alone, or embaressed about what happened to them.

Enjoy the episode. You are all loved!

I'm @Atlantabean
