Each episode is a chat about the things that join us together as women and humans on this earth and make you go “whoa, I thought I was the only one”, but then you find out you’re not the only one and you feel relieved.

We share stories, interview real extraordinary people, laugh, become inspired, and give permission to fail.

It’s those real, raw, vulnerable conversations that let us know that we're not alone in having so many questions about life, sustainable living, beauty, fashion, slow living, and about being a woman.

    Can We Ditch the Hustle? The Modern Woman's Balancing Act

    Can We Ditch the Hustle? The Modern Woman's Balancing Act

    Feeling the summer squeeze? In this episode of The Bella Femme Podcast, Amber and Emily chat about the pressures of Hustle Culture and wonder what ever happened to, "It Takes A Village"?! We explore the challenges of affording summer activities for kids, the rise of "quiet quitting," and the trade-offs between side hustles and self-care.



    So what's up with the clash of hustle culture and the dream of a supportive village? We explore the challenges modern women face:


    Summer Expenses: Can you afford a comfortable summer with kids while "quiet quitting"?
    Side Hustle vs. Second Job: Balancing work, self-care, and dreams of financial freedom.
    Healthcare Hurdles: How healthcare costs force parents to choose between side hustles and family time.
    The Side Hustle Conundrum: Is the constant hustle worth sacrificing personal well-being?
    Is "Clocking Out" Possible? Exploring the entrepreneurial nature of side hustles and the pressure to always be "on."
    Where's the Village? Discussing the shift from community support to the relentless pursuit of individual achievement.

    Join us for a frank conversation about finding balance, prioritizing self-care, and reclaiming the "village" spirit in a world obsessed with hustle.

    Skirts on Guys? Exploring Gendered Fashion, LGBTQ+ Fashion Wins & The Future of Inclusivity

    Skirts on Guys? Exploring Gendered Fashion, LGBTQ+ Fashion Wins & The Future of Inclusivity

    Join us for a vibrant discussion on fashion that breaks free from gender norms! We're delving into the world of gender-fluid fashion! Have you seen men rocking skirts and other traditionally "feminine" clothing? Is it a passing fad or a sign of a more inclusive fashion future?

    Fashion isn't just about clothes – it's about self-expression. Fashion's a rainbow, not a binary!

    We'll also celebrate iconic LGBTQ+ fashion moments that pushed boundaries and celebrate self-expression. From fabulous drag queens to the power suits of trailblazing women, we'll revisit some history-making style statements.

    Happy Pride + Happy Everything!

    Do You Have A Mentor? Life Lessons From Everyday Influential People

    Do You Have A Mentor? Life Lessons From Everyday Influential People

    Hey Bella Femmes! This week, we're diving into the world of mentors - those amazing humans who guide us, inspire us, and maybe even give us a little nudge in the right direction.

    Let's be honest, not everyone has a fairy godmother waiting in the wings. But guess what? Mentors can come in all shapes and sizes! We'll be chatting about:


    Finding wisdom in unexpected places: Turns out, wisdom can come from surprising places (hint: it's not always a corner office!).


    The perfect fit: Identifying someone who aligns with your goals and inspires you to be your best self is in the confidence of the mentor.


    Awkward silences and big feels: Should you thank your mentor if they don't know that you see them that way? It sure feels good to be on the receiving end of the thanks, but will we ever pay it forward?


    Believing in YOU: Finding mentors who champion your journey, even when you doubt yourself is magical. Who else is in your support system? Do you even have a support system or are you, like Emily, feeling a little blank?

    You are capable of amazing things! So let's chat about finding those amazing people who can help you reach for the stars!

    Ever wondered about your hooha health but felt too shy to ask?

    We've all been there. But fear not! In this episode, we ditch the shame and dive deep into women's health with a certified nurse midwife, Karen! We'll not only be getting answers to your burning questions, but we'll also find out how Karen's own journey led her to this amazing field.

So grab your girlfriends (or headphones for a solo listen), and get ready for a frank and informative conversation about your vajayjay's health!

    Here are some of the juicy questions we'll be getting to the bottom of:


    Down there hygiene: Is odor normal? Do you smell the beaver as part of the exam?
    Undies: Are cotton panties really better than going commando?
    Bushwhacked or bare? Does it matter if your pubic hair is shaved or not?
    Plus many more!

    Tune in for a candid conversation that will leave you informed and empowered about the health of your muff!
