  • In-Between: It’s My Birthdayyy & Lessons Learned

    It’s your favorite TRIPLE TAURUS’ BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! Ayeeeee! It’s also the TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of The In-Between – How!?!  I’m full of energy (and glam) on this week’s episode. 

    Here’s a quick look:

    • It’s my birthday, boo! Weekend getaway to the mountains 
    • Newly “discovered” childhood trauma aka Liz’s need to be accepted by anxiety – fun times!
    • Angry AF, an app to help men with their emotional intelligence *scratches head*
    • The new Dua Lipa album (I’m a Dua STAN)
    • Current icks: Not being able to split checks, the fact that it’s an election year, and misleading headlines. 
    • The anniversary of the podcast & what I’ve learned so far:
      • 1. Starting is the hardest part; that doesn’t mean this journey isn’t free of challenges but getting over the initial hump is/was the hardest part.
      • 2. Constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone (but finding out that’s where the magic happens)
      • 3. How to truly believe in and have confidence in ME; not seeking external validation


    We’re a little all over the place, but when are we not? You’ll be giggling and feeling empowered no matter what. 😉

    • Mental Health Awareness Month
    • Questions to ask yourself when checking in on your mental health (& why youshould be checking in!)
      • How do you feel?
      • How does your body feel? 
      • Have you been taking care of your basic needs? 
      • Have you been practicing any self care? 

    If you need to talk to someone, please do not hesitate to reach out to a medical professional. You matter and so does your mental health. I’m happy you’re here (xoxo).

  • In-Between: What’s it like to be Introverted w/ Jay & Steph from Stay Introverted

    We've all heard the word introvert, but what exactly does that mean? Jay and Steph from the Stay Introverted podcast join me on this week's In-Between and answer that very question and also explain how two introverts started a podcast. 

    In this week's episode, the three of us talk about:

    • What is an introvert? What does it mean to be introverted? 
    • Misconceptions and unfair stereotypes about introverted individuals
    • Differences between introverts and extroverts and how they play off each other 
    • Social dynamics and personal relationships between introverts and extroverts
    • How the pandemic highlighted the introverted community
    • What your introverted friends want you to know 


    As an extrovert myself, I learned SO much from Jay and Steph about being introverted. Heck, this conversations even made me question myself – am I fully extroverted? Another question, has my extroversion affected my introverted husband? **laughs nervously**

    I also joined Jay and Steph on their podcast, so be sure to check that out too!
