A Bushy Distraction

2017-06-17

What’s up, Giggle Gang!
We took a week off, but we are back to give the people what they want. Shells has been busy trying to adjust to summer break and Irene has been embracing the start of music festival season, which brings about a very serious concern about port-a-potties.
Special shout out to Irene’s momma who graduated this weekend with a Masters in Nursing!
There’s no #WYR this week, but Shells has a fun word of the day. Let us see your best Moue.

Then to the water cooler… we’re talking about these ridiculous Senate testimonies and the powerhouse that is Kamala Harris; the PDA between Keyshia Knight Pulliam and Bill Cosby during his trial; Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Diddy landing high on Forbes recent net worth list, and one bushy distraction cloaked in “feminism” from Amber Rose.

We wrap up the show with ‘To the Max’ in Irene’s Beats, and Shells’ eye spy is all about the flow between folding and opening up your heart… lessons learned in yoga.

We love y’all! Keep spreading the FSG word… we’re on iTunes, Stitcher, and wherever you listen to podcasts! Also check out our website and holla at us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

See ya next week!

Believe it or Not…

2017-06-03

Giggle Gang!!! We’re back at it!

Irene’s been co-maxin’ & relaxing over the Memorial Day weekend, with the exception of a late night party; meanwhile  and Shells’ had a pretty intense extended weekend attending events, chaperoning a 9-year old birthday sleep over, and hosting a cook-out. But enough about us, let’s get into the show.

This episode, we’re talking about:

  • The current state of awesome television, including Mater of None on Netflix & The Handmaid Tale on Hulu;
  • The cancellation of Underground on WGN;
  • The Mandela Effect;
  • The top searched “How to Spell” words by state;
  • A young girl passion to empower self esteem for women of all hue through her company, “Flexin’ in My Complexion“;
  • Tiger Wood’s recent run in with the polices…but most importantly how his rap sheet reads.

Irene has Issues in her Beat’s this week, and Shell’s Eye Spy inspiration came from watching a player on Survivor who shared her testimony about what can happen when you just get off the couch.

That’s it… shout of to all the Giggle Gang that has already copped your FSG swag… it’s not too late to get yours too. We love ya’ll

Listen – Laugh – Share,

FSG HUNNED

2017-05-26

What’s Up, Giggle Gang! We hope you all got a chance to check out the recording of our live show…and we really hope you loved it! Guess what?! This is our one hundredth episode. ONE HUNDRED FSG experiences. ONE HUNDRED recordings of our randomness and giggles. 100 Thank Yous for supporting us 100 times over. We are so proud and excited about what’s to come for this random idea that keeps on growing!

We’re back to our usual antics this week. Shells is getting ready for summer time in the ‘burbs’ and Irene has finally come down from her medically induced high following oral surgery.

Shout out to our girl, Danielle, for graduating this weekend with her J.D. and for giving us some new Would You Rather material!! This #FSGWYR is about the afterlife… which you you rather?

Then, we have two weeks worth of water cooler news to catch up on. There’s the devastating murder of Richard Collins, the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, The Carters push party theme spawns a heated debate about cultural appropriations, and then we discuss the new fashion trend (or not) of male rompers.

We wrap it all up with a new Wale record in Irene’s Beats and an Eye Spy Inspiration about listening to your body’s needs and resting when you need it!

Here’s to 100 more EPs… for shits and giggles!   XO

FSG Live from Washington DC!!!

2017-05-20

We are just trying to give the people what they want… and apparently, the people want FSGLive!

We are so thankful for the Giggle Gang for rocking with us in person and DJ Commish being our DJ and guest host for this milestone event!

We did our usual things… giggled… judged each other for our Would You Rather answers… giggled… discussed a few current events (including some official schooling from Dr. Keneshia Grant) giggled… talked about if relationships and goal chasing can co-exist… giggled… and wrapped it up a double dose of #WIMB and an #ESI that was a testament to the entire FSGLive experience!

We love ya’ll … We Appreciate ya’ll… we hope you all enjoy the show!

Get your FSG gear… continue to Listen-Laugh-Share… and stay tuned for more exciting growth from us!

2017-05-12

What Up, Giggle Gang! We are back to our regular recording schedule following an amazing weekend in DC celebrating FSG LIVE and Irene’s Bday! Would You Rather spirals out of control *shocker*. We talk about the magic of the weekend, catch up on the craziness of the current political climate, Shells’ was hype about old news thanks to Unsung: A Different World, and of course, we share our reactions to Part 4 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion.

Irene has a good one in her Beats and Shell’s Eye Spy Inspiration is compliments of the Bible! 🙂

Enjoy this week’s show and look forward to catching the recording of our Live Show next week and make sure you cop your official FSG Swag, available now!

Ep 96: Housewives Acting Up

2017-05-04

Giggle Gang!!! We’re preparing for the live show, so we kept it relatively short this week- Relatively. It’s Irene’s birthday and Shells’ is gearing up for her trip to D.C.

Around the water cooler: Beyonce is good and pregnant…and dares anybody to try her. Facebook and other big corporations are tapping our phones-be mindful folks. Agent Orange cuts First Lady Obama’s signature programs. ESPN fires over 100 employees. Netflix’s Dear White People series is awesome. And The Real Housewives of Atlanta are on some other shit. All this and more on this week’s episode!

Listen. Laugh. Share

See y’all next week,

Irene and Shells

Ep 95: A Shea Mess

2017-04-28

What’s Up, Giggle Gang!!

We are less than 2 weeks from our first FSGLive Show and Official Afterparty! Can’t wait to kick it in the District with you Good People!

Irene just got back from another dope Springcoming; and Shells participated in the March for Science in Chicago this weekend.

No #WYR, but this week’s word of the day is “perfidious”… #elevateyourwordgame.

Then to the watercooler…

Obama makes his first formal appearance since leaving the Oval, without a tie; United Airlines can’t handle leggings, overbooked flights or giant bunnies; a California judge has overruled 45’s planned penalty for sanctuary cities; Beyoncé has announced a scholarship fund; And then we spend some time talking about the recent backlash toward Shea Moisture regarding their diversity ad.

Finally, we wrap up the show with a throwback song with all the feels in Irene’s Beats, and an Eye Spy Inspiration about having vision and letting it be your guide.

That’s a wrap for today… but we’ll see ya’ll soon!

Listen-Laugh-Share!

EP94: All Around Melo-Drama

2017-04-20

What’s up, Giggle Gang! We are less than 20 days away from FSGLive…and it’s official, both your hosts will be in the flesh! 🙂 Get your tickets, book your flights, get your life… you still have time!

We get caught up on Shells’ random acts of kindness (an apparent trustworthy presence) for the week; and Irene’s Easter weekend activities and the highlight of her week: The new Whole Foods.  Shout out to @HBCUSpringcoming for the festivities this weekend. We’re so proud of Lauren & George!

Would You Rather (#FSGWYR) started out as a question of what your lesser fear is… and then quickly morphed into a conversation about Survivor. (typical FSG sh*t, shrugs).

Then we get into some water cooler conversation about Agent Orange’s crazy ass, the Easter Day murder of Mr. Godwin and the debate about mental illness; former NFL football player Alex Hernandez reportedly committed suicide and reactions to the news are conflicted; Serena Williams is adding motherhood to her resume; and we talk about the news that LaLa and Carmelo Anthony are getting divorce; and then theres Tyrese’s crazy comments about “aggressively promiscuous women”.

Finally, we wrap up the show with new music from Kendrick Lamar in Irene’s Beats and Shells’  Eye Spy Inspiration about being a blessing to others.

That’s all for this week. We love ya’ll and can’t wait to kick it with you in DC!

Listen – Laugh – Share!

Ep 93: United We Drag

2017-04-15

It’s a new week, Giggle Gang!!! We’re gonna keep the description short and let y’all enjoy the show! After Irene and Shells get past their behind the scenes shenanigans (caused by Shelley, of course) we get into pretty interesting conversations about Janet Jackson and her divorce settlement, and the ridiculousness that is the literal dragging of a paid customer from a United Airlines flight. All this and more!

That’s all we got this week! Don’t forget to get those tickets for FSGLive. And in the meantime, listen, laugh, share!

Peace.

Ep 92: Pepsi Challenge

2017-04-06

**In perfect harmony**  Do you know what today is??? It’s our anniversary! 2 years of FSGeeeee!

Giggle Gang, you’ve been riding with us for TWO YEARS and we thank you! We hope that you’ve heard our growth and that you are as excited about what’s to come as we are!

No #WYR thus week, but Shells is sharing a new vocabulary word. Take out your pens everyone. Then we get to our Water Cooler Notes because there’s plenty to talk about. We discuss Romo retiring, water safety as summer pools begin to open, Black television is still super LIT, the increasing number of brick and mortar retailers that are going under, an Ivy League bound Rockaway teen, and then we share our reactions to the Pepsi “social awareness” (or lack thereof) ad starring Kendall Jenner.

We wrap up the show with some young Usher and an eye spy inspiration about closing old doors to make way for new ones.

Don’t forget FSGLive is coming on May 6th… get those tickets! And continue to Listen – Laugh –  Share!

Peace
