Answering your DMs - from skincare to sugar
Let's go back to circa 2021 and CAVEAT the fact that Jess sang the WRONG song at the end of this pod and she's really shame about it and goodness knows we find live video easier than the pod sometimes lol. In today's episode we go off on so many tangents - which is quite fun - so thank you for the questions that popped into our inboxes! We chat many things; we start with answering the question 'should we be quitting sugar', and move on to questions around reestablishing exercise post sickness/routine change/heading into winter, parenting wins and fails and GOSH even skincare routines. We aren't professionals on much (any lol) of this stuff and only speak from personal experience, so - naturally - please take from our chat what you will. We absolutely love bringing you the weekly podcast and thank you again for being with us today. If ever you'd like us to chat about something in particular or would like to make guest suggestions, hit us up anytime via any avenue! With love x
Nurturing our relationship via the sparkle pod. Where else?
HELLO! We're back - Leece and Jess chewing the fat for the first time in what feels a little too long. Oftentimes we're busy and so this weekly catch up is food for the soul for the both of us. Thank you for being invested in our podcast and for all of your supportive and encouraging words towards us/it. We appreciate it so much. A few musings today starting with what's going on in and around our lives, and moving on to some quick-fire but thought provoking questions, like what we're currently looking forward to, how we might be misunderstood and what if any motto we're trying to live our lives by. Gets a bit deep there in spots but hey such is life - you know what to expect by now :) WITH LOVE.
Danni Carr - How I Quit Alcohol
Danni Carr has a passion for self improvement and self preservation. After years of touring and partying with musician husband Ash Grunwald, the excessive binging started to take its toll and Danni (and Ash) decided enough was enough. When a good friend of Danni's said she was going to take 12 months off drinking, both Danni and Ash didn't hesitate in joining in. What started as a 12 month commitment in 2017 has now turned into 5+ years and Danni has never looked back. Now the host of the podcast How I Quit Alcohol, Danni is a certified life coach, breath work and meditation teacher, and is currently writing a book with Ash about alcohol. Both are passionate about helping other people break the cycle with alcohol and rebuild confidence to start a new life from the inside out. I have followed Danni for some time and, given my experience in giving up alcohol, I really wanted to dig deep into not only how Danni quit alcohol but also why. I enjoyed speaking with Danni so much but have (quite typically) over analysed and lost sleep over how I conducted myself here and sort of wish I had been different... nonetheless I really hope you enjoy it. I'm always here if anyone wants to chat, Leece xx
BONUS EP - the in depth story; Leece ditching wine
Well that was a first! Just sitting in my wardrobe recording a podcast on my own! Recently, I was lucky enough to record a conversation with a lady called Danni Carr. Danni has a popular podcast herself called How I Quit Alcohol. After talking with her, I (typically) overanalysed my chat and didn't love how I conducted it. Once it was finished, it was a typical case of 'oh how I wish I could do that again and do it better and differently!'. Anyway, I thought it would be cool to share with you firstly, why I have quit alcohol. A little segway, some may say! I've always been very open and honest about what is going on in my life, and feel the need to share my story in a little more detail. From being a consistent Friday night wine drinker to suddenly hanging up my glass, a lot of people have been interested in my 'why'. I really hope you enjoy this episode - in now way would I ever judge anyone for drinking alcohol; this is just my story. Hit me up if you ever need any help with wanting to quit, too - always here for you! Leece x
Mother's Day musings, sound baths and sobriety
Off the back of a school Mother's Day service today's podcast starts off with some beautiful song lyrics and a dusty eye. It's no surprise to those that listen to The Sparkle Pod that, like many, we grapple with some aspects of motherhood. Regardless of ANY of this we are so blessed and privileged, not only to have become mother's, but also to still have our mother around - which is where the dusty eyes come in at the start of today's chat. We begin with our current motherhood musings and go onto Leece's first experience at a sound bath - something she attended on her own last weekend - and something that, to Leece's surprise, wasn't actually a bunch of women lying around bathing while listening to music. There's also mention of a podcast episode to come where Leece talks sobriety with a woman she's followed on Instagram for a while - an episode that'll be with you soon. Thank you for listening to us, as always, and keep an eye out on social media for our little Mother's Day promo coming your way (we'd be so grateful for your thoughts on this one!!) X
