    Pt 2: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up with Kathryn Kelly certified KonMarie organizer by Marie Kondo: Simplify & Organize.

    Create a simple, tidy home you love to be in. What is your vision for you home? For Kathryn Kelly (Refresh Organizing) it was a cozy cottage in Napa Valley that had very few items but all of them were absolutely lovely. She went through the rigorous certification process by (our queen!) Marie Kondo herself and is now one of the very select few licensed Konmari organizers. She walks us through the process and how we can all put our house (and lives!) In order. Topics discussed: organizing by category instead of by room, having a clear “why” and “vision” for your home and how you can EVEN “konmarie” your schedule. (We are GEEKING OUT over this episode! What a wealth of knowledge Katy is!!!)

    Katie lost 90 pounds without counting calories or working out even one time. Here’s how! (Whole 30? Paleo? Keto? Lose the baby weight?)

    Katie lost 90 pounds without counting calories or working out even one time. Here’s how! (Whole 30? Paleo? Keto? Lose the baby weight?)

    (Yikes, was that some click bait or what?) Here we go again talking about Katie’s body. This time she lost 90 pounds with her fourth child. Topics include: paleo, keto, strength training, her wrist injury, how she healed it, anti-inflamation, calories-in calories-out myth. Also: Katie is not a doctor. Please consult a doctor. She’s just a mom of four with a microphone and 90 fewer pounds on her body. Oh, and 90% more energy. Also she likes herself. She liked herself before she lost the weight and still likes herself now. Body positive. Go bodies. (Phew. Got those disclaimers in. Let’s begin.)

Favorite podcast ever.

I love Shailey & Katie! They bring levity to everryyyything while being grounded and authentic. To know them is to love them. As a single, self-employed 30yo woman in the Midwest, I’m grateful for them as supportive companions along the journey 🥰

Authentic & Fun

As a single 20-something who lives on the West Coast and who graduated with an Accounting degree, this podcast STILL 👏🏼 DELIVERS 👏🏼 I started listening to these ladies while working crazy hours in a cubicle, and now I'm engaged 💍, have a job with flexible hours, and feel like life is more fun... coincidence?! Absolutely not!!! Thank you to Shailey and Katie for brightening my day and making me laugh by bringing your authentic selves to the table!

Best 👏🏻podcast👏🏻ever👏🏻

I love listening to this podcast! It makes me feel like I’m in a coffee shop chatting with the “cool mom club”. Their relevant conversations and witty banter have made me laugh out loud in the middle of my office (nothing to see here people🤦🏼‍♀️) 😂
