Ashley Summers, the woman behind the fantastic clothing line The Homemade Kid, could not be more delightful. You'll meet her during this episode of Mama Bear Dares and will be instantly charmed. Not only is she giving away a Mama Bear t-shirt (stay until the end to learn how to win!), but she opens up about her experience of birthing a daughter and a business within two weeks of one another, what inspires her, and her life on the West Coast. Tune in as Tesi and Leslie ask Ashley about her work, her family, and her fabulous self!

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • The birth of a business and a baby. This topic leads us to the question: What are YOU capable of?
  • Ashley's awesome ability to prioritize and live with PEACE about her choices.
  • Ashley's lightness! Our Friday night fun!
  • We also discuss Ashley's practiced eye for beautiful things and her company's cute designs.

Obsess Sesh!

Episode 15: Nerdy by Nature, Internal Work, & the Question of Puffy Vests

Yasi Back is an epidemiologist by day and style blogger by night. She is the woman behind Hello, Gorgeous, a hugely popular fashion blog that she has curated from her home home in Michigan for the last half decade. She opens up to Mama Bear Dares listeners on her love of fashion, her investment in her community, and the importance of honoring yourself and your priorities. She also offers solid advice to listeners about wearing what works for you and she makes an important announcement about her work. Yasi is such a pleasure! You can find here on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and, of course, on her blog.

Here are a few of the highlights from our discussion with Yasi:

  • The keys to personal style
  • Body acceptance
  • Ever-evolving fashion
  • Style bloggers for the average cat, the working woman, and the mom who stays at home
  • Disordered eating and the power of writing as a healing mechanism
  • Beyonce
  • And...Yasi makes a big announcement
