    Life and Love From the Perspective of a Transgender Woman With Jeraldine Medina-Allum

    Life and Love From the Perspective of a Transgender Woman With Jeraldine Medina-Allum

    Navigating life, love, and relationships is hard enough as a woman in this day and age. But just take a second and imagine what it would be like having to juggle all of the above at the same time as feeling like you were born into the wrong body.

    This is exactly what Jeraldine Medina-Allum has gone through and continues to experience because the gender she identifies with does not match the sex that she was assigned at birth.

    Tune in if ever you have struggled with your identity in any way before, or if ever you've wondered what it's like to be treated like a man compared to a woman, or date a man compared to a woman (as well as who is better in bed according to our special guest).

    The Sex Ed You Never Had but Wish You Did With Chantelle Otten

    The Sex Ed You Never Had but Wish You Did With Chantelle Otten

    In the Western world, sex is literally everywhereincluding the magazines we read, the movies we watch, the music we listen to, and the ads we’re subjected to. 

    And yet, for many of us, we never learned the basics of sex.

    On top of this, the stigmas and taboos surrounding female sexuality and pleasure are so pervasive despite major strides to change this. Now, more than ever, we need to promote a dialogue about sex that is inclusive of everyone regardless of their gender, sexual preferences, or orientation.

    That is why I talk all things sex in the bonus episode with sexologist Chantelle Otten who is actively using her work to change the narrative and remove stigmas surrounding sex.

    How to Balance It All With Ultra Violette Co-Founder Ava Chandler-Matthews

    How to Balance It All With Ultra Violette Co-Founder Ava Chandler-Matthews

    Ava Chandler-Matthews is the Co-Founder of Ultra Violette Sunscreen which not only launched but sold out in under 24 hours back in 2018 and has since been widely credited with “making sunscreen sexy”. 

    It is no surprise the brand has taken off considering Ava comes from a long history of working in the beauty industry with some of the biggest brands, both locally and abroad, including Napoleon Perdis, Mecca Cosmetica, and Rationale.

    It takes a lot to disrupt an entire category and that is exactly what Ava has achieved by creating a new brand of sunscreen with women in mind and dedicated to future-proofing our faces.

    So, how did she do it?

    Together in this bonus episode ‘How to Balance It All' we discuss:
    The expectations and pressures for women working in the beauty industry
    How to embrace the body you’re in
    What it's like launching and running your own business
    How to juggle your love life with a demanding career

    How to Date Without Alcohol With Sober Mates Founder Sam Wilson

    How to Date Without Alcohol With Sober Mates Founder Sam Wilson

    Alcohol can be a lot of fun. But how do you know when you’ve taken it too far?

    Or when you’ve become too dependant on it?

    Or what do you do if you want to give it up but everyone around you still gets drunk each and every weekend?

    Enter Sober Mates.

    Sober Mates is not only a community, it’s an educational platform and a place you can go to explore your drinking habits. It was created for people who want to cut down and learn more about their drinking habits without judgment from others.

    It can seem impossible or even intimidating to be single and sober.

    And it can seem even harder to quit drinking altogether in Australia when it is so embedded in our culture but Sam Wilson, the Founder of Sober Mates, is here to change that.

    Together in this bonus episode, we discuss:
    Why drinking and dating are so thoroughly linked
    What dating sober is like
    Why Australia has one of the most prominent binge drinking cultures in the world
    How to navigate social and romantic situations sober

Divine Timing

I turned 30 last year, and two months later I had this podcast in my life at a time where I felt like I didn’t fit in with my friends anymore, because I wasn’t on the same trajectory as them.

And now, I’m confidently living my best single life and so excited for what’s to come!

A relatable podcast that puts everything into perspective, and has helped me strive for an abundant and solo, phase of my life 💕

steffie15 ,

Relatable!

This podcast was the first Single lady podcast I found..
Most of what Nicole puts together in each episode has something to take away from..
They are relatable well thought out and also has given me new perspectives on certain topics
!!
I’m loving it, i eagerly waiting for each episode to drop..

Synesthesic ,

A wonderful experience!

Thoughtful and thought-provoking concepts that have been well researched and excellently delivered to the Listener.

Nicole offers herself as both a looking glass and messenger on both the reality present in the modern world and how that reality impacts and influences modern day women.

I very much look forward to continuing to watch this content creator grow as I truly believe that Nicole really cares for her audience and wants to enrich the lives of as many people as she can.
