Listen here!

Welcome to my dining room! That's right, it's a round table talk with your hosts Carlene and Jill, along with YouTube beauty creator Aysha Harun (a.k.a Aysha Abdul); the gorgeous Bree Ahmed, who self-identifies as a plus-sized model and recently starred in an Every Woman campaign in support of CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Healthaaand podcast host of Nobody Cares (Except for Me), Anne T. Donahue, who's written for Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, The Guardian and more!  Sit in on our rousing beauty chat about inclusivity (who's winning); representation (sniffing out tokenism); and body positivity (why can't we accept ourselves like we do others?)

After we get all cerebral, we get to the bottom of what's behind Aysha's glow, the secret spot in Toronto where Bree sources the best makeup finds for women of colour, and learn about which key products are behind Anne's signature, Mad Men beauty aesthetic.

Plus, don't miss the details on Anne's upcoming book of essays, Nobody Cares, which launches in September--that's already been blurbbed by actress and author Gabourey Sidibe and Dolly Alderton of the High Low Podcast. And big news, we've done another pod swap! That's right, Carlene and Jill will be on Nobody Cares (Except for Me) podcast later this fall, where we'll share our damn good #bottomshelf beauty favourites that may look ugly on the outside, but make you look damn pretty anyway.
