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!
This week we think about all of our bests! This includes best takeout place, best find this week (alcohol- related), best quarantine moment (Tyler-related), best purchase, and the best vacation spot we are dying to go visit after all this passes 🤗
If you need a little pick me up, this episode is bound to make you laugh and get you thinking about all your favourite moments prior to and during quarantine!
Don’t forget to be kind to others and even kinder to yourself during these times💛
Here’s to thriving our way through another week together!
It’s been a month since we’ve been living the quarantine life and just like the rest of the world, we have experienced our fair share of highs & lows. From getting excited about starting a routine for our new normal, to just being fed up with the entire situation… We won’t be sugar-coating it for you this week… (we are feeling a bit down)
Join us as we compare what it’s like to hit the one month milestone for work, relationship and moving into a new home! – Let us know which one you think is the most exciting!
Warning: Episode contains spoilers!
This quarantine has sucked us into the “Joe Exotic” phenomenon. We really did not want to click on this Netflix series, but with not much to do, and constantly being bombarded with memes of Joe and Carol on IG, we finally caved.
This week we do a deep dive of why we think this show is soo popular, who we think is the real “villain”, and which parts we think were the most outrageous in this documentary.
Whether you are fascinated with the series, or still having second doubts about binge-ing this odd show, join us and find out where we think Carol’s husband really is!
Are you in quarantine with your best friend?
This week we chat about how grateful we are to have our BF/husband to rely on during this time of isolation. We discuss how being isolated at home and spending 24/7 together really does accelerate a relationship and wonder how many couples will survive this “challenge” ... this scenario reminds us of Bachelor In Paradise
One of us reveals an extremely awkward moment during a conference call this week... trust me this one tops it all!
This week we chat about the small wins and moments of joy that we have encountered during the second week of our “new normal”
Find out what we are doing to cope with boredom, stress and a whole lot of free time. One of us discovered boxed wine X2… while the other established a new found liking for cutting vegetables (listen to find out more)
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy! Just remember to cherish this extra time with your family, pets, couch and Netflix. Because believe it or not the day will come when we all have to put pants on again.
Like many of you around the world, we are following safety measures, self isolating and being BORED AF.
It is week 1 of self-quarantine and we are desperately finding new ways to entertain ourselves!
This week we share our quarantine week 1 routine with you, what we have been watching, listening, cooking, drink etc.
Hopefully we can be a source of support and entertainment for you during this time of uncertainty.
Just know that whatever we are going through will eventually pass, and that we will get through this together as a community!
Sending you sunshine, tulips and positive vibes
With the weather getting warmer, and the sun shining brighter, we know that spring is near!
There ‘s nothing more exciting than seeing tulips in full bloom, but for some of us “Spring Cleaning” brings an odd abundance of joy… (ugh we are so old)
Listen as we dive into our “strategic plan” on how to do spring cleaning the Let’s Talk Basic way. Laugh as we share some of the most embarrassing finds and take you through clothes we should have “donated” years ago! One of us is very passionate about this process while the other is less enthused… (can you guess who is more excited?)
Let us know if you will be detoxing your home this spring!
This week we are diving into a topic that brings a BIG smile to our face… “Me Time”
We love talking about it, but realize that we are terrible at scheduling it… can you relate?
Every Monday morning when asked “What did you do this weekend”, we often follow with, birthday dinner, baby shower, bridal shower, engagement brunch, wedding (you get the point) We are so good at scheduling time with others, but feel guilty about scheduling time just for ourselves
Listen as we reveal what we love to do during our “Me Time”, and give you tips on how to feel less guilty about saying “no”. Now go schedule some time just for yourself!
