One More Thing …

Hi, folks!

By the time you read this, I’ve safely arrived – and am probably waking up, blurry-eyed – at my vacation destination. But I couldn’t leave you completely high and dry.

Some of you know this, but for those who don’t, my friends Kath, Renée and I have a small, humble podcast we try to release monthly, called Sip & Bitch. We basically pair topics we like talking about, with the alcoholic beverage of our choice.

In our newest episode, we talk about romance novels, and why we read them (or don’t) … plus, Kath shares the story of what happened when her uncle read a romance novel he didn’t like.

If you have a chance, check us out! You can click on the SoundCloud link below, or you can find us on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to your podcasts. And if you like what you hear, please leave us a review!

Talk to you in April!

New Podcast Episode: Modest Dressing

Hey folks,

Hope you’re making the best of your Friday (or Saturday, depending where you are in the world)!

Earlier this week, my friends and I put out the newest episode of our podcast, Sip & Bitch.

This time, we decide to discuss whether or not there’s actually a trend in modest dressing happening right now, while sipping on some Kir Royales.

We all had our own thoughts; you can decide for yourself.

You can click on the link below, search for us on SoundCloud, or find us on iTunes.

We also have a Facebook page – please stop by (if you’re on Facebook), when you have a moment.

Enjoy!

 

New Podcast Episode: Black Panther!

Hey all,

Sorry I haven’t posted as of late – it’s been kind of on the busy side, believe it or not!

I’ve got two or three drafts waiting for me to write, which I hope to tackle this weekend …

In the meantime, here’s an extra episode from Sip & Bitch, the podcast I record with my friends Renée and Kath.

We were among the many people who went to see the new Black Panther movie over opening weekend … and we have thoughts. We recorded ourselves before and after seeing it, for reaction purposes.

A HUGE warning: If you haven’t seen it – and are planning to – then only the first 12 minutes are spoiler-free. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Click the link below and check us out! If you get your podcasts via iTunes/Apple Podcasts, the episode will be up later today (Friday).

Enjoy!

Shopping While Brown, Sizeism and … Downton Abbey?

Hey kids!

Just a brief check-in to let you know I’m still alive …

But ALSO … to let you know about the new episode of Sip & Bitch, the podcast I make with my friends bi-weekly.

Here, my friend Renée talks about what happened when she visited the perfume department at Saks Fifth Avenue’s Toronto location; our frustrations with finding clothes that fit (the never-ending struggle for women the world over), and Kath’s fond farewell to Downton Abbey (which aired its last episode March 6).

It’ll be up on iTunes for downloading on Wednesday night, but if you can stream, you can find it here:

 

Happy listening, y’all!

 

Whoops. Again.

So I was on a roll with on those blog posts a couple of months ago, hey?

And then – as usual – I stopped.

Sorry about that. Part of it was due to my lack of topics to blog about.

Part of it was that mid-winter lack of motivation that sets in – like clockwork.

And part of it was due to my busy schedule trying to record and edit Sip & Bitch – the podcast I do with my friends.

On top of which, I’m getting ready to take a short trip at the end of March (which I will happily blog about in April).

In the meantime, if you have a chance this weekend, feel free to have a listen to the most recent episode of Sip & Bitch, where Kath, Renée (and me, but not much) interview YA novelist Leah Bobet!

There will be a brand-new episode up on SoundCloud next Tuesday night/Wednesday morning (and on iTunes a little bit after that).

If you have a SoundCloud account, please feel free to leave comments on our recordings. And iTunes listeners, we’d love some reviews, please and thanks!

Shameless Plug!

Sorry I didn’t have a post for you yesterday! My brain failed me in that regard.

BUT, the other reason I didn’t have a post for you is because I was busy recording the small podcast I do with my friends Renée and Kath!

It’s called Sip & Bitch, and we put out an episode every two weeks. Each episode, we pick three topics (or usually, it’s two topics, plus a movie review, or something TV- or movie-related) and have a casual chat … usually while drinking wine.

In fact, we just finished editing our latest episode, which you can check out via SoundCloud:

In this episode, we talk about turning 39 (based on my post last week), our dislike of “to-do” listicles, and The Awards That Kath Shall Not Name. Have a listen, like our episode or comment on the timeline (especially if you have a SoundCloud account)!

If you prefer to download episodes so you can listen at our leisure, you can find us on iTunes – our episodes usually upload about 24 hours after we load onto SoundCloud.

We’re a low-cost operation (translation: basic), so we’re still learning as we go along. But I hope you’ll listen to the above featured episode, as well as our previous ones!

You can now find us on Twitter. Or, if you’d rather send us a note, you can email us at sippers.bottlereturn@gmail.com.

Happy listening!

P.S.: Despite my absence, I’m still part of a one-month blogging challenge with Renée and Kath, who are churning out some great posts, so please feel free to stop by their blogs and read their awesome work!
