EP16: Your Vivid HD Life
It’s episode 16, ya’ll. Over the last week, Shells had a little run-in with a tollbooth while trying to pick up a sick child. Irene is in love with summer, trying to reconcile her feelings about the stair master, and successfully tweet threatening AT&T.
When it comes to Ellen, one of us is amused by Ellen’s recent “You’re Welcome Wednesdays”, while the other is digging a lot of the novelty gear in The Ellen Shop.
This week’s Would You Rather completely threw Irene for a loop! Hit us up on Twitter or Facebook and let us know which you would rather: Always be overdressed or always be underdressed. @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR
Water Cooler News includes the re-opening of the US & Cuba embassies, a couple more “National _____ Days” for your celebratory pleasure, an interesting extra credit question that addresses the “fear of missing out”, and we then get into quite a discussion about this Nicki Minaj & Taylor Swift … thing.
This week’s Plug of the Week is In My Own Lane Events. Kianna Lane is the CEO & Founder of In My Own Lane Events, as well as a mother and entrepreneur. As she began to build her businesses, she quickly learned that she could accomplish more with a valuable network, so she started to bring together many of her entrepreneur friends to collaborate, support, and encourage each other. The result was the birth of In My Own Lane Events where they host events designed to bring businesses together to build one another up. Planning for September is currently underway for events in the metro-Atlanta area. Contact In My Own Lane at InMyOwnLaneEvents@gmail.com and like their page on Facebook for more information and upcoming events.
Let’s Talk About It this week, is a discussion about the desire for and dangers of validation, especially on social media. We learn that Shells is deeply impacted by ultra-perfect IG pictures…eh, she’s a work in progress.
A Philly native and R&B maven is delighting Irene’s Beats, and her story to stardom is our Eye Spy Inspiration. That’s all we have, until next week! See you then!

EP15: What’s Success?
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!
This week, Shells was fighting the downpours, wrangling children, and feeling accomplished about taking her coffee black. Irene and her Sammies wrapped up their season, so more time can be committed travel…which she is booking 1 one-way flight at a time.
And we have a new addition to the FSG family… our new and official intro! We hope you like it, ’cause we just love it! 🙂
While Ellen’s rockin out with Gap Kids, Irene does not want us not forget, #IreneEllenDanceBattle will happen this year!

Water Cooler News this week includes the tragic and suspicious “death” of Sandra Bland, the Chattanooga, TN military site shootings, a summary of the ESPYs, the Birdman/Young Thug/ Weezy craziness, the verdict in the 2012 Colorado movie theatre shooting, the epic fail named “Amazon Prime Day“, and a few fun National “______” Day that will get you through the week.

We’ll see you next week.
Irene & Shells
EP14: Diddy Boppin?
We took a lil’ break … but we’re back. Here’s the most important thing that we learned during our time away: We are much better together than we are apart. Shells continues to enjoy her new Midwest life: eating ribs at festivals and learning the horse racing game and such. Irene took her ridiculousness to Miami. Her mom was elated to see her and some of Irene’s friends have no concept of being on time. Oh, and the theme music for Irene’s softball game is “Flicka Da Wrist” #GoSammies #petty
Ellen’s only boyfriend, Tayt, had a successful heart transplant surgery! YAY Tayt! We continue to pray for your recovery! And in other Ellen joy, there’s a perfect way to keep your ice cream from melting through the bottom of your waffle cone. #YoureWelcomeWednesdays
We know you’ve missed your weekly Would You Rather pondering, so here it is, good people: Would you rather be able to talk with all animals or be able to speak all foreign languages. As always, we want to hear from you. Hit us up @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR
So…. we are playing catch up around the water-cooler this week. Here’s what you should (already) know:
Donald Trump is still crazy as hell. South Carolina lawmakers voted to, and subsequently, removed the confederate flag from the Capitol Grounds. Congress, however, lost their minds while trying to address the use of confederate flag on federal properties. Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick have broken up. Ariana Grande licked donuts for sale to the public for fun. 3 major IT glitches in 1 day. Wow. And the Bill Cosby story just keeps getting worse. Are you surprised?
FSG PLUG OF THE WEEK! This week we have the esteemed honor to plug the “Queen Like Me” book and reading program. Queen Like Me is part of a budding non-profit education initiative that teaches history to kids.
QUEEN LIKE ME: THE TRUE STORY OF GIRLS WHO CHANGED THE WORLD is a vibrant and adventurous learning experience that invites readers to explore the courageous and dazzling stories of 15 authentic women leaders of the past and present whose contributions to the world are captured in the form of rhyme! A dynamic array of women (including Queen Nefertiti, Coretta Scott King and First Lady Michelle Obama) are featured!
Check their website queenlikeme.com and follow them Instagram @queenlikeme4kidz and FaceBook @QueenLikeMe.
This week in “Let’s Talk About It”, we talk about some of the most notable breaking news over the last couple weeks, including Obama’s Best Week Ever (SCOTUS Same Sex Marriage ruling and Amazing Grace Eulogy). #BlackGirlsRock, especially Bree Newsome & Misty Copeland. Then there is our BET Awards recap and a few words about FSU quarterback’s De’Andre Johnson nightclub brawl … with a woman.
Irene’s dancing spirit led her to the fun, summery music of D.R.A.M. This week’s Eye Spy Inspiration is courtesy of our boo, Ellen!
Enjoy and see you next week!
