I was recently given an iPhone by my sister, thanks Gilly. I’m actually not a huge fan of iPhones but my Samsung is getting old so the battery life isn’t great. Anyway long story short I’m starting to see the benifits of them!
I’ve been finding it hard to shut off so tended to listen to music but as my phone would power down quite quick I started using the iPhone more and more.
One day I remembered that Anna & Lily, a couple of my favourite YouTubers, had a pod cast and got so excited about the fact that I could listen. Welcome the addition of podcasts and number one on my hit list.
1. At Home With…
I love watching Anna and Lily so I already feel like I have a connection. I was interested to see how they would translate to a podcast. It worked! It’s funny coz I love watching Anna a tiny bit more then Lily, but I thought Lily was great in the podcast! Its funny how that happens!
I enjoyed their guests too! I liked the idea of getting to know inside peoples home too! My favourite episode was Kate Johnsons, I follow her on everything so I was keen to hear her chatting in a casual friend zone.
Once this podcast was over there was a small hole in my life. I was at a bit of a loss as to what to listen to. Then it got me. Narcissism. This personality trait has been in my life, my whole life , but last year I was ripped apart by it. Because of my own personality I tend to attract narcissistic people and I fall into the same traps over and over again. Research is a great way to get insight and some perspective. Enter my next podcast:
2. Understanding Today’s Narcissist.
This podcast is a bit heavy and hard going sometimes so unless you’re your actually interested in learning about how to deal with these types of people I’m not sure you’d be too interested in listening. I do think it’s important to know what types of people are out there, but I’m also a true believer in ignorance is bliss! I’ve found it super helpful and insightful. How Christine talks through each stage and traits, really breaks it down. She made it so simple to understand! Her podcast started in 2017 so there are quite a few to get stuck into. It does get SUPER heavy though so, enter my next podcast.
3. Estee Lalonde – The Heart Of It.
Who doesn’t love a bit of Estee?! I was very pleased with myself when I remembered she had a Podcast. I started listening to this around the time of my birthday. It was exactly what I needed! I found it so empowering and uplifting. She talks about her anxiety, beauty, feminism and much more.
I found her honest conversations a pleasure to listen to. If you haven’t listened already you must! You won’t regret it!
I have no idea how I came across my next Podcast, but I’m glad I did. If you are anything like me you will love. Enter my next Podcast.
4. Self-Helpless .
This is a great one for making you realise that you might be wired, but its ok, we all are. Its great because there are so many of them they kinda chat over each other so it kinda feels like you are listening on a conversation that your not really apart of, but then are. Not sure that makes sense but if you listen you’ll know what I mean!
They talk about everything, boob jobs, boyfriends, self-help books and much much more! If you are looking for a manic girly chat podcast this is the one for you!!
After listening to these I was left thinking, “I wonder if there are any Irish people doing blogs, I’d love to hear a voice from home”. Enter my next Podcast.
4. The Furniture Crush.
How I found this Podcast was a gift from God himself (or herself). I’ve been following Joanne (Kyle Lane) on instagram for ages so when it popped up that she was starting a podcast I was like WHHAAAAT. I couldn’t wait! I think I may have harassed her a teeny tiny bit so I’d know exactly when her first ever podcast was going up!
I was so excited! It came at the best time ever. I have furniture project in mind and I was in dire need of hearing a friendly Irish voice. See, I told you, sent from GOD!!!!
If you are into furniture, it’s a no brainer, subscribe. If you wanna do a bit of home DIY, it’s a no brainer, subscribe. Her Podcast is pretty new so at the moment there are only two but I’m LOVING them!! I’m super excited to paint my piece of furniture. I’m even now on the hunt for some chairs!
Do you follow any podcasts? Any you think I’d like? I’ve kinda become obsessed with PodCasts so leave a comment below with what are listening too!
Till next week
