EP69: Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Hey Hey, Ya’ll!

While we were away, Irene enjoyed a date with her couch and is getting ready for a date with a spinning bike. Shells is facing the reality that Cole is a real life cool kid.

Around the water cooler, we talk about the gas line break impacting supply and prices in the south; Michelle Obama hosted with our girl Ellen, and the folk at Naked Juice launched a campaign to help those in produce deserts – so #DrinkGoodDoGood, and the Emmys happened (but we missed it).

Finally, we have to acknowledge (yet again) the victims of excessive police force. Video of Terence Crutcher being shot dead in Tulsa, OK surfaced this week, followed by reports that Keith Lamont Scott being shot while reading a book in his car. Our hearts continue to break as these stories make national headlines, but we pray for the families of those lost. We are so tired of these stories, so tired of having to defend our pain and fear, so tired of having to explain our realities. #BlackLivesMatter

Let’s shift the energy. Would you rather have telepathy or telekinesis? While we agree on this one…it’s for VERY different reasons. lol.

Then we talk about it…the idea of Fake It till You Make It. Two very different situations made me think about the risk and reward of acting like you are who you want to be. First, Necole of NecoleBitchie.com and xoNecole.com posted a video sharing the truth of her struggle, and Corey Feldman, former child star, “performed” live on the Today Show.

Finally, Irene’s got a new joint from Usher in her Beats and Shell’s eye spy inspiration is a reminder that self care is so important and comes in many forms.
