Quarantining in a new “Ship”… so what are we?
Believe it or not, it’s been almost 4 months since we’ve been in quarantine. Has the pandemic accelerated the “What are we” conversation? How are new couples navigating their new relationship while trapped in a condo/ house 24/7!? This week we are checking in with our favorite couple Jen and Mike! As you may remember, Jen and Mike went on a blind date set up by US last year. They have been isolating as a couple since March and we can’t wait to catch up with them and see what they’ve been up to.

Many people have been picking up different hobbies during quarantine. From making pasta, dalgona coffee, cookies and banana bread; we’ve seen all rage on social media. Today we invite our friend Deanna, from BakingInFashion.com, to share her love for baking which started PRE-quarantine, but the obsession has escalated exponentially since isolation. We ask her to share the most idiot proof recipe with us, and little tips and tricks that can’t be found in the cook books.

We are just two weeks away from the official start of summer! So before diving into our “summer diet” (ice coffees & sangrias), we thought we would start by doing a little spring detox to get rid of all the toxins in our lives!
Yes - we are talking about people & relationships that drain your energy and hinder your personal growth. Many of us hold on to bad relationships a little longer than we should, make excuses for disrespectful behaviour one too many times, and become afraid of sharing our real opinion in fear of how the other person will react.
These relationships are draining and this week we share our own experiences being in them, and how we finally got out of them. We talk about when is a good time to end a friendship and how to do it.
Have you been in a similar situation? Let us know how you got out of your toxic relationship!

This week we take a trip down memory lane and look back at the inception of @letstalkbasic
We discussed where we were when this idea was born, what steps we took to keep each other accountable, and reminisced about all of our favorite moments during this process.
Somewhere in our conversation we realize that we come across many crises in our lives… is this just us? Or do you have monthly breakdowns too?
Thank you so much for tuning in weekly!

This week we are joined by a special guest and dear friend that we'll call "Basic Mom", to talk about what it's really like to be a mom! Needless to say we had many questions for her and luckily for us she leaves nothing off the table and tells us all the unfiltered truths about getting pregnant, mom-guilt, terrible twos and a lot that we have zero clue about. This basic mom gives us an inside look into how much they go through and remind us why moms are so important in our lives. Hope you enjoy this episode and wishing all the moms and mother-figures a very Happy Mother's Day!

Like many celebrations this year, Mother’s Day will also look a little different. In times like these we all need to be a little creative, go the extra mile to make our mamas feel loved!
So this week, we go through a list of 10 ideas on how to celebrate our moms virtually! As we go through this list vetted by Queen Oprah, we quickly realized Mother’s Day is not “one size fits all”! Some of these ideas may work for your mom (Care package), and others may not (Memory Jar). At the end of the day remember that it’s the thought and effort that matters, and with moms - a little really does go a long way!
We hope you can draw some ideas from our episode this week. We can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeves for your mom!
