They talk about each of their individual readings, when Chris realized he has a gift or "second sight", his struggles with these gifts, and also how they helped him grow to be the person he is today. YOU WILL GET CHILLZ.

-Chris gets honest about some of his craziest readings, including an old lady soiling herself

The holidays are OVER. And of course, we need to talk about them.

So, this week, Krista and Lindsey discuss the outcomes of their holiday ventures. We’re talking the good, the bad, and the ugly: everything from family, revisiting bad habits, spending Christmas alone, and creating new traditions as a result. 

 

Did anyone take a cool vaca? Do something by yourself and actually enjoy your own company? Or did y’all visit the old fam' bam and get asked ALL the questions about life and work and relationships? It's okay, we did too.

 

Krista and Lindsey also bring in a STELLAR caller, Nicole from Boston, who get's real and to the point right away (she get's it). During the call, we get deep and down-to-earth about

  • 2016 was a year of change, but 2017 is the year you make shit happen
  • doing you & not worrying about what other people think
  • surviving & getting out of the "in-between"
  • our SOULCYCLE JOURNEYS! #tapitback #findyoursoulbaby
  • plus and minuses of moving across the country
  • going with your gut & letting your instincts pull you where they will

 

This week, the girls will help you honor the changes in your life so you can continue to do what you love and love what you do.

Danielle Cuccio, CEO of yoga brand Cuccio Somatology, blogger behind "The Beauty Blender", and yoga teacher to the stars, joins the ladies this week!  This is an in depth convo that covers it all...like recognizing when you are forcing the wrong path, having the guts to sacrifice and follow what excites you, making your passion your business, making your business a strong brand, dealing with the numbers game, handling social media pressures, and so much more.  
 
 
The girls take it back to Danielle's early 20's, where her habits and people she was hanging out with did not align with the vision she had for her life.  They track her path, the ups and down, and the unexpected twists and turns.  In the midst of these life changes, Danielle met her husband on Match.com.  HOW FREAKIN' CUTE.  The girls are fascinated and ask one hundred questions.    
 
 
A former aesthetician, Danielle also shares her beauty secrets and favorite products.  OMG PEN AND PAPER THIS SH*T.  Beauty and wellness is her ISH.  Take note!  We also talk vision boarding.  Dreamy.  As always, the girls keep it REAL AF.  They know you will relate to Danielle's dream, drive, and downright realness.

YOU GUYS, Steve, our angel baby sound technician, is our special guest this week (and his RAD tunes close out the episode).  How the heck do you make new friends as an adult?  It's awkward AF sometimes, no?  You might have "enough" friends, or you might be in a new city and want to make some new ones, or you might be meeting the same type of people over and over.  Wherever you find yourself on this spectrum, this episode will inspire you to get out there.  The trio compiles a list that you can look to the next time you're bored, lonely, sick of the same old group, alone at the bar.  How about shaking up your routine and following your bliss, mimicking children and not giving a f*ck?  Plus, Steve shares his beautifully weird way of attracting new friends, Krista recounts her session with a hypnotherapist that helped her understand the role her energy plays in attracting new people into her life, and Lindsey shares her experience meeting friends on the DM (hehe).

The girls are joined this week by their friend Danika Miller, who like them, is a creative living in LA.  They candidly discuss their individual relationships with LA, why this city fills them up one day and can leave them feeling bleak AF in the inspiration department another day.  Why is that?  Is it them?  Is it HIM?! JK.  But the struggle is real when filtered faces and "epic" sunsets flood your social feed on the regular.  Krista, Lindsey, and Danika share their inspo hacks when it comes to pursuing your dreams, making sh*t happen against all odds, rising up from the ashes of a break-up, navigating a filtered Instagram world, and living inspired for others.  The girls give us insight on:  

 
  • The struggle to create when everything feels copied
  • Aligning with what you believe, while staying creative, while making a living. SAY WHAT?
  • Consumerism and creating.  Do we have to always be SELLING SOMETHING all the time?
  • The power of social media
  • The power of a partner to incite creativity or suck it out of us
  • Unapologetically going after sh*t
  • Maintaining momentum and deepening your commitment to your vision(s)
  • Letting go of what's not working
We go deep.  An intimate convo for the masses.  For the record, this podcast is inspired by you.  Thank you for listening and for writing in.  ALMOST 30 LOVES YOU.

Put on your robe, whisk some matcha tea and get your notebook ready.  Kelly LeVeque of Be Well By Kelly, Celeb Holistic Nutritionist, author, and overall bad-ass entrepreneur joins the girls this week for an in-depth discussion about all things nutrition.  Jessica Alba and Chelsea Handler swear by Kelly's approach to health and nutrition.  If you want to feel empowered when planning and eating your meals, this episode is for YOU.  Her tips and insight are fad-free and easy to incorporate into your busy lifestyle.  Kelly's goal is to have you feeling confident in the way that you eat.  Oh and she shares with us some of her favorite (and famous) Be Well Smoothie recipes.  HELLO EASY BREAKFAST.

 

Kelly teaches us how to turn off the hunger hormones in our body with a fun, simple requirement for every meal that she likes to call "The Fab Four".  Wait, hold up, we have hunger hormones that can be TURNED OFF?!  Literally, the girls have been Fab Four-ing it since they recorded and have both felt the shift in their cravings and energy.  Krista and Lindsey are also curious about juicing.  What's the deal?  Why do people want to run over squirrels and tend to snap at their colleagues while juicing?  Spoiler alert:  Kelly hates juice cleanses.  She tells you why.  

 

The girls dial it back and find out what lead Kelly to build her successful wellness brand.  How long was she moonlighting her business while working in cancer and genetics before she took the leap to focus on Be Well by Kelly full time?  Where did she find inspiration and support?  Why she is obsessed with education...and so much more.  To be honest, you may want to listen to this one a few times through to fully digest this yummy interview.  Bad joke, amazing episode.  LOVE YA.  P.S. Kelly's new book "Body Love" is out this June!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!  Almost 30 Nation is growing every day and we are so grateful.  The girls dream about grabbin' a brewski with each and every one of you to express our thanks.  But they don't really drink beer and traveling to 34 countries would be uh #GOALS.  If they could, they would.  But, YOU GUYS RULE.  For now, e-mail them!  They answer.

Anyway, did anyone else need like a week to collect their thoughts and wrap up whatever the hell happened in 2016?  THE GIRLS, TOO.  But now, NOW, they're ready to reflect, set their goals, and proceed mindfully into the new year.  2017.  JEEZ, weren't we supposed to be sleeping in tubes by now?  

Krista and Lindsey are legit catching up on the pod this week.  They share just how awesome CHILLIN' on the eve really is.  One of us didn't make it to midnight.  GUESS WHO!  But seriously, chillin' over Dom Perignon showers at the club any day. #ALMOST30.

In this episode, the girls go deep and discuss:

  • How to reflect..IT'S A PROCESS.
  • How to shift the focus from what didn't get done to what did and what will NOW
  • What the girls learned last year
  • What they want to incorporate more of this year
  • How to set goals and commit to them (GOD DAMNIT!)

You're going to turn challenges into positive shifts this year....If you answer yes to these questions, LISTEN NOW:  Do you have trouble asking for help?  Are you repeating a self-sabotaging story to yourself or people in your life?  Are you living at a million miles per hour without a clear idea as to why you are doing things?  Do you have ZERO boundaries with people in your life?  The girls are holding their hands up, too.  The discussion is, as always, honest and raw.  Set your goals and intentions with Krista and Lindsey this week...it's NEVER TOO LATE.

This weeks' podcast is back with the classic format, both Krista and Lindsey are together this week to chat about their youth, and what it REALLY means to be an awkward kid. Like, no teeth, and LICE vibes. Sexy, right?
 
 
Starting out we talk about what to do when you're not feeling 'hundred'. Forcing or fronting a feeling isn't needed. When the holiday season is in full swing, tensions are high and it's challenging to stay grounded. There is a tendency to over commit, and overworked. When you're working all year and losing inspiration, as a creative, it's challenging to find that spark and that excitement and bring it everyday. The girls talk strategies to stay motivated, grounded and inspired. No matter what field you're in, staying 'inspired' means staying in the game of life. 
 
 
Our question this week comes from a listener who is writing in about a mysterious object found in...um....her lady parts. After that initial shock they run through the real question, about expectations, and what each one of us 'deserves' in relationships. 
 
 
It's another buffet of hilarious stories, and relevant insights from The Almost 30 crew. Thanks for subscribing, rating and reviewing! We love you!
