To Say or Not to Say

We all have that one co-worker whose life we know every little detail of, despite not really wanting to. This week on the podcast, we discuss oversharing at work, why it’s important to draw boundaries and practice professionalism and how to shut down those invasive questions when you’re not interested in sharing your business.

The Flakiness Epidemic


Trying to make arrangements to do anything in this day and age can be hellish. I miss the days where all we had were landlines, you could call your friend up on a Friday night: ‘wanna hang out tomorrow?’ ‘Sure!’ And hang out you would. Ahh, it was a simpler time. But then you grow up, you have a job, family, commitments and all that jazz and it would seem we lose the ability to agree to do something, then actually follow through with said thing. Flakiness is a trait that permeates through modern culture like a big ugly plague.

On London Fatigue & Self Care


I love London. I really do. I sometimes still wander around in complete awe that I actually live here. But much as I love it, my GAWD, is it exhausting. I feel incredibly lucky that I can escape up to Leeds every now and then to chill with my family and decompress. Sometimes I’m good at recognising the signs that I need to do that and sometimes, not so much. Either way, my few days up North last weekend were a welcome respite for my soul.

Bet You Think This Song is About You

After a two week hiatus, we’re back! Huzzah! This week we’re chit chatting it up about race, Beyonce and white people’s incessant need to cry white tears whenever black people talk about their blackness. Sounds like a heavy topic, sure, but it’s important one for black and white people to be able to discuss together.

Shock Absorber: Boob Bounce Be Gone!

Shock Absorber

The statistics for the number of women who wear the wrong bra size hovers somewhere around the ridiculous realm of 90%. Working in fitness, one thing I see all the time is women not wearing proper sports bras and it crushes my soul every time. We’ve got a boob-jiggling epidemic going on people, and it must be resolved!

I see women wearing regular bras (most likely the wrong size) in the gym, or some sort of regular bra + ill-fitting-sports-bra-over-the-top combo that just makes no sense. I could go on and on about how vitally important it is to have a good sports bra, suffice to say, you are doing your fun bags no favours by cutting corners in this department. A lack of adequate support means your boobs bounce around and the ligaments in there stretch. The bad news is, once they’re stretched, they don’t bounce back. So basically, if you want saggy boobs, go ahead and don’t bother wearing a sports bra!

Goals AF


I’ve been in a slump. Well, maybe ‘slump’ is the wrong word. I’m happy. I love what I do. I have a great family, great friends, awesome dog. I’m more than content with where my life is right now. (Man, those were some really braggy sentences). But lately, something has just felt a little…off. Bored wouldn’t be the right word either. But it’s been niggling at me. So this past week I decided to stop dancing around the problem and just admit to myself: I’m lacking a goal.
