Like having a friend in your ear
The podcast has quickly become one of my must listen shows! Great chemistry and guests. I’m binging my way through old episodes. Many thanks, ladies.
Thanks to Lucy Score for introducing me to the SPA Girls. I love Lucy’s books so I listened to her episode and now I am a SPA Girls fan too! I have been thinking of writing a book for a long time and with the real world, accessible advice I get from each episode, I think I could really do this. Thank you so much!
