Y'all!! I'm so excited!! I can't handle it!! The short story is we're launching our new podcast, Beauty Full Stories with Erin's Faces, and the first episode is up on Apple Podcasts / Spotify / Stitcher / and more.
My first guest is Joanna Jones, of Hamilton on Broadway and beyond, and we talk about theatre, being biracial, finding confidence in yourself and so much more - it's sooooo good.
The longer story of why a podcast and why now is this - when I wrote my blogpost Am I Too Heavy To Run a Beauty Company about weight and beauty standards I knew other women would probably relate but I had no idea just how much you would and how many of you would. I've never received more phone calls, emails, texts and DMs about anything ever in my life from all ages of women. And it dawned on me - I want to hear more women's stories. I want to hear what can bring us together and help us dismantle these useless standards that keep us from reaching our potential. And so the podcast was born.
I thought about who to talk with - people choose celebrities and influencers with high follower counts for a reason in instances like these - they bring a big audience and can push your message forward. But, having spent so much time with you (literally in your homes) over the years doing Green Beauty Workshops, I know YOU have stories to tell and those are the ones I want to hear and share.
So I'm talking with my clients - that's the thread - and the point of our conversations with women is to show that we have all struggled to live up to beauty standards and none of us is alone. Sharing how different people have overcome, or are working through, these challenges so that we can all be one step closer to being free of them for good.
And, because it's me, we're totally going to talk about beauty inspirations, serum and shimmer :). But that's kind of the icing as opposed to the cake. I hope you love it!
I'm so excited for you to listen and I hope you love it!!
