Dear Evie+Sarah: I just celebrated my 30th birthday and was overwhelmed by the generosity of friends and family. Actually, the generosity of one friend in particular sent me into a state of shock. She purchased a new Coach handbag for me, which I know to cost nearly $200. I couldn’t believe it! My concern is that I don’t really feel like I can reciprocate with that degree of generosity. (And if I’m being totally honest, I’m not sure I want to either.) I thanked my friend profusely when I opened the gift, I wrote her a thank you note, and…

Usually, we pick our friends because of what we have in common, and major life differences are deal-breakers. But for me and my friend Claire—who I’ve known since the 9th grade, who went to college with me, who was in my wedding—the greatest potential wedge in our friendship has just never been a focus of conversation, until now: Why did she decided to make sure she’d never become a mother at the same time as I was building my family? In this week’s episode, I’m interviewing my one and only childless friend about why and how she committed what she…

Sarah’s starting a new culinary adventure this week: Veganism! A documentary called What the Health caught her attention and launched her into a quest for the truth about which foods are actually healthy. But…Evie’s feeling a little skeptical about conspiracy-theory documentaries and whether a diet this restrictive can actually be good for you (or at all practical!). Tune in for a lively discussion about going vegan.      Or listen here.

If you’re a LuLaRoe lover like me, you’ve probably noticed that everywhere you look consultants are going out of business. There are GOOB sales all over Facebook. At least four consultants I know personally have gone out of business in the last six months. Is it because sales are down? Maybe. People don’t seem to be holding their breath for pop-ups and online sales like they were a year ago. Maybe it’s the crazier and crazier patterns. Maybe it’s the fact that you just can’t seem to find that cute top you swore you saw in someone’s inventory. Some consultants…

Dear Evie+Sarah: I have this friend who is constantly trying my lipstick and lipgloss without my offering, and it grosses me out. We’ll be out together, touching up our makeup in the bathroom, and she’ll reach over and grab my new lipstick right out of my hand and spread all over her lips. I know I’m being a total germaphobe. She’s one of my closest friends, and it’s not like I’m worried about contracting any particular disease from her, I just don’t necessarily want to swap spit via my brand new lipgloss tube. How can I get her to stop?? —Grossed…
