Friendship Decluttering | EP 30

Relationships are complicated. Even our friendships. So it’s no wonder we’re so quick to “fire” our friends when they disappoint or don’t live up to our expectations. In a culture where you’re either in or out, it’s hard to picture a third option. But it turns out there is one. If you’re a fan of our theater analogy, then you’ll get a crash course with this episode. How does that work? What do we say? What does it actually mean to “friendship breakup?” Check out the episode Heather...


How to Support A Grieving Friend | EP 29

The 5 People You Spend Time With | EP 28

On this episode, we talk about being intentional with our friends and choosing wisely. After all, creating our own...


Life is Hard. Friendship Doesn't Have To Be | EP 27

It doesn’t matter if we tell ourselves that we don’t need friends, we cannot out run our desire for human connection.

So would you rather go it alone or have fabulous friends by your side to support you when the going gets tough? Check out The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz as mentioned by...

Drunk Girl Bathroom Stall Support Group | EP 25

Oh, girl! We’ve been known to go to the bathroom in pairs in order to chit-chat in peace. But sometimes what we find in the stall is love and pure friendship from a drunk girl. You know what we’re talking about, that girl you meet at the club by the bathroom sink who’s got sage advice, supportive encouragement, and ego-boosting compliments to share! It’s moments like these when we realize that the women of the world have our back. We’re in this together. Follow Raw Honeys on Instagram:...


Friendship Online vs IRL | EP 24

Do you know your BFF IRL? Or are you only connecting through a screen? As valuable as online friends are, there’s no substitute for the bonds you create when you can make real life eye contact. We know that making friends as a grown woman is not as easy as it was in our sandbox days. But the love, support, and conversations over Rosé IRL are so worth the effort.

The Loneliness Epidemic | EP 23

Have you ever stood in a crowded room and felt utterly isolated? In this age of social “connection” where we have less and less in-person interactions, loneliness is a growing problem. Join us as we discuss the root cause of loneliness, why it’s crucial that we take action against it, and how it impacts even your physical health. Read more about studies done on loneliness here:...


The Lost Art of Listening | EP 22

With all the noise out there, it’s difficult to be heard. But at the same time, how much are we actually listening? We don’t just mean hearing, but really listening between the lines. How often do you find yourself in a conversation with a friend, and you’re just waiting for them to take a breath so that you can be heard? We talk about how things can really change when we stop. Open up. And listen. Check out Accidental Courtesy, the documentary Amanda mentions on the show. And we want to...


Not Giving Up On Friends | EP 21

All relationships take work. But friendships can sometimes feel especially exhausting--even if we can't put our finger on exactly why. But instead of investing our time and energy into understanding where the friendship is breaking down, we tend to do the easiest and safest thing imaginable: we give up. But is that always the right move? In this episode, we discuss how to know when to "give up" on someone , and when it might be worth it to stick it out. Follow Raw Honeys on Instagram:...

Mad Isn't Bad | EP 20

Anger is honest. It’s valid. It’s justified. When we’re taught to keep calm and carry on, it’s easy to bury our true feelings of frustration deep inside. So like the proverbial tree in the woods, if your anger is locked away, does anybody feel it? We talk about how anger is never isolated. And when we don’t face it, our emotions can have dire effects on our health, happiness, and relationships. So put your shovel away and get your hands dirty. Helen Fisher Ted Talk (story starts at 21:00)-...


Abortion Laws: A Honey's Perspective | EP 19

Abortion Law is the most hot button issue concerning women today. And with the newly proposed laws in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri and others, it’s a topic we HAVE to address. But this isn’t your typical abortion talk because . . . We love you if you’re pro-choice. We love you if you’re not. We love you if you’ve had an abortion. We love you if you think you would have one. We love you if we know you would never have one. Instead of joining the argument, we want to use our voices to let...


Bingeworthy Friendships | EP 18

We’re huge fans of women supporting each other in the media. So we took our love of TV and friendship and combined the two into a list of our favorite portrayals of female friendships. Okay . . . maybe this was just a way for Amanda to talk more about Sex and the City. While you’re trying to decide what to binge watch this summer, check out some of these beloved friendship themed shows: Sex and the City: The Golden Girls: Grey’s Anatomy:...


Guilty Pleasures | EP 17

Guilty Pleasure. We all have one. You know that thing you think is so “bad” but it makes you feel so good? On this episode, we’re challenging this misnomer. If we’re made to experience pleasure, then why should we feel guilty about it? And is this phrase indicative of something darker? Or do we just delight in the forbidden? We’d love to hear from you. Let us know your guilty pleasure. Leave us a comment on Instagram @therawhoneys or our Facebook Page! Follow Raw Honeys on Instagram:...


Sex, Shame and Purity Rings | EP 16

Virgin or slut. Modesty vs. sexual liberation. Sin and sensuality. There’s a cultural, maybe even moral, divide in how sex is represented to and for women. Sex has become synonymous with shame for so many women. It’s time to reclaim our bodies, our pleasure, and our sexual identities. No more guilt. No more closed doors. And no more shame. Check out Nadia Bolz-Weber’s book Shameless: A Sexual Reformation that Chelsea references in the show. Want to have an open...


A Hot Mess or A Clean Freak? | EP 15

One’s a mini-Marie Kondo and the other a chaotic creative. We find out if clean freaks are just vying for control while messy types are avoiding responsibility. Or do they have more in common than we think? Follow Raw Honeys on Instagram: Join our community on Facebook:...


Trust Yo'Self | EP 14

Your intuition is your superpower. So why does it seem like our heads and hearts are always at battle? And when one wins, we constantly question our decision? Trusting ourselves is not something that our society encourages. Instead we’re forces to dig for it and then defend it. The good news is that trusting and believing in yourself is a muscle that can be developed as soon as you choose that you’re worth it. And honey, you’re worth it. Because when you take that leap and trust your gut,...

Defining Success On Your Terms | EP 12

Success. We all want it. Some of us even want to be known for it. But in our quest to find out how success is REALLY achieved, we had to ask if success looks the same thing to everyone? We've learned that the definition of success is a completely individual idea and it evolves over time as our lives and priorities change. Our favorite success quotes. Amanda “True success means winning in the battle with yourself. Those who persist in the pursuit of their dreams, no matter what the...
