    #45 The One Before The Wedding

    Let's go back in time to 8 days before *the* wedding, and see how the nerves are holding up and Liv also has a big announcement to make! We catch up about Liv's hen do too, and a we discuss how much we love the seaside town of Deal in Kent. In Telly Talk we discuss First Dates, with the worst 'datee' Charlotte's seen on the show, we briefly discuss the ongoing football taking over the TV, and the question we all want to know the answer too: has Charlotte started Fleabag yet?! We briefly discuss alcohol, hangovers and the book called 'The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober' and our latest clothing purchases. We'll be taking a short break but will be back very soon!

    #44 A Catch Up with lots of TV Talk & Tangents

    #44 A Catch Up with lots of TV Talk & Tangents

    Firstly WE ARE SORRY THIS IS SO LATE (Charlotte actually uploaded this a week ago but didn't press publish, we're sacking her). In this almost outdated catch up we rate our favourite Easter treats, June's blow drying ritual and the month countdown for Liv's wedding is now upon us. In Telly Talk we discuss GOT, the new Marvel film (we've watched neither), First Dates and Wild Rose. Liv's been reading some books and we've both been shopping the Shrimps for Warehouse collaboration.

    #42 Interview with Genevieve Richardson

    #42 Interview with Genevieve Richardson

    This episode we really get stuck into the fine art of afternoon tea, and name our favourite places to visit for the fine British classic. We also discuss our favourite TV shows of the week, alongside a brief trip to Brighton and a few days in the Lake District. Joining us this week, is the very informative Genevieve Richardson. Genevieve is currently on an internship at Parliament, and works closely with Catherine West (Labour, Hornsey & Wood Green). We discuss the basics of politics, unpick common phrases you might've heard during Brexit but have no idea what they mean, and how to get more involved in politics on an everyday basis.

    In this episode we interview the world's one and only comparison coach, Lucy Sheridan. In her own words, Lucy says: 'Screw comparison! Be less ‘them’ & more you.' We talk about life online / surveillance culture, how to use comparison as a tool for positive change and ways to talk to yourself like you would a good friend. Lucy was a really generous guest, and we hope you love listening to this episode as we did recording it. As well as our special guest, we also get through a lot of Telly Talk, Charlotte's finally finished This is Us, Liv is thrilled as The Bachelor comes to the UK and we both discuss the start of the new season of Queer Eye.
