TheLivelyShowwithTheFugGirls

Today is Royal We Day!

As I’ve been sharing lately on TLS and on IG, I have become obsessed with the popular new fiction book, The Royal We.

The Royal We is a national bestselling book loosely based on the lives of Prince William and Princess Kate if Kate happened to be an American exchange student named Rebecca (Bex) Porter.

It. Is. SO. Good.

We’re talking with the authors, Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks (also the bloggers behind the popular fashion comedy blog, Go Fug Yourself), about how they wrote the book together, what research went into the epic plot, and how their blog led to their careers as fiction authors.

This episode is perfect for current Royal We fans, potential Royal We readers, or anyone looking to learn how two writers co-authored a 450 page novel together.

TLS #83: Personal Growth in a Relationship & Changing Unhelpful Drinking Patterns with Tara Bliss

TheLivelyShowwithTaraBliss

Today’s episode of The Lively Show is extremely powerful, insightful, and so soothing that I have a feeling many people will feel like they’ve had a massage after listening to the show!

I’m talking with Australian life coach, Tara Bliss, about her journey from using drinking and drugs to be the best version of herself, to finding a more peaceful approach to living her life.

Tara details her experiences and advice for others who struggle with this area of life in her book, High: A Party Girl’s Guide To Peace.

(Note: The practices Tara recommends are geared towards those with milder relationships to alcohol and drugs, not specifically serious addictions.)

This episode is perfect for anyone who would like to: hear an honest and inspiring personal story, learn about new ways to approach drinking peacefully, or learn how to connect with a partner who may not be on the same personal growth path as themselves.
