*How they met
*Why their first goodbye was awkward AF
They could have talked for hours. The girls peed their pants when they finally nailed down their favorite couple, Brooks Forester and Lauren Young. They are pretty damn busy loving each other and being awesome human beings. JUST WAIT until you hear their story....HINT: Lauren was a fan of Brooks on "The Bachelorette" AND they both grew up MORMON. Krista and Lindsey have a freakin' suitcase full of questions, so they bring you the interview in two parts! In PART 1 you can expect to find out:
*What it was like filming "The Bachelorette"
*Behind the scenes secrets
*If Nick Vail, the new "Bachelor", is cool or nah
*What it was like growing up Mormon
*What it was like leaving the Mormon church
*Their view on political policies in Utah
Stay tuned for Part 2! WE'RE GIVIN' YOU ALL FINAL ROSES, OKAY?
Cleavage, man. Too much is always enough. And not enough, always has intention. In the candid opening of this weeks Almost 30, Krista and Lindsey reflect on their cleavage practices back in the day and how it serves them now.
It's been way too long since the girls have shared their "20's Us, 30's Us". Halloween gave Krista some serious inspiration. Hey ladies, still have that 'slutty inmate' costume in a plastic bin under your bed just in case? Fella's, admit it, how confused/disturbed were you by girls' attempts at 'sexy grandma'. Krista reflects on Halloween past and present. The two are alarmingly/thankfully very different. Lindsey remembers her late night eating habits in her early 20's...Turkey and Eggo Waffles anyone? She talks about her current commitment to a more mindful relationship with food.
This week the girls call a listener from Utah! UTAH! Ali's question about the law of attraction develops into a full blown discussion about manifestation, cultivating your tribe, and how you are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with.
This episode is like an EVERYTHING BAGEL. You can't not love something about it. *double negative, sorry English teachers of past*.
We'd like to interrupt this week's show notes with a quick disclaimer regarding the first 8 minutes of this episode: The sound is gently distorted by the sweet aliens that were helping to connect Le sweat in NYC to Almost 30 in LA. Feel free to skip over the part where Lindsey messaged some guy on Instagram because he had beautiful succulents. THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL, OKAY!? Around, the 8 minute mark, all is right in the world.
This week Almost 30 welcomes the ladies behind Le Sweat, a fresh online publication that shakes up the idea of 'working out'. Charlee Atkins, an uber popular SoulCycle Instructor and fitness model, and Meridith Miller, a lady boss of partnerships at Twitter, are exploring their own idea of "working on working out". The physical sweat is just the beginning. The ladies talk 'inner-cising', being alone (not lonely), social media, knowing thyself after the end of a long-term relationship, why everyone should take a friend-moon, their popular articles filed under "Stroke His Ego", and how Charlee and Meredith are already OWNING their 30's. This one is candid and inspiring. After you listen, check out www.le-sweat.com!
The girls have a very candid conversation about rejection. Krista shares what it was like auditioning for SoulCycle, what she learned, how she was redirected, and how it helped to pave the path to her successful blog. Lindsey shares how putting herself in front of rejection more often (auditions, auditions, auditions) creates a healthy non-attachment to the outcome so that her pursuit is always exciting. They discuss the "something greater" that is at work, the challenge to trust it, and what happens when our preparation meets it. If you are experiencing rejection in your career, romantic relationships, family life, in the pursuit of your dreams, internally between you and you....YOU WILL RELATE.
