She makes you feel like everything is ok and that everything is happening just as it should be.  During the interview Bronnie Ware shares words of wisdom that made us go "AHA!" and "holey sh1t... yes!" We loved every minute and we know you will too! This is the stuff we talk about: The top 5 regrets of the dying (not just the regrets but the story of how Bronnie Ware published her best-selling book (titled the same :D))... over 1 million people have read this book and they're making a movie! We hear Chris Hemsworth is up for the love interest! UM OMG YES! Read it! Surrendering to the flow of life. Giving and receiving. Allowing space in your life. The importance of connection. Following your heart and intuition. Trusting that the 'bad times' won't last and that you'll become a better you from them. Bronnie's new book: Bloom (you must get a copy! Yah!). Merrymaker mantra of the week: the greatest show of gratitude we can give to life is to enjoy it as fully as possible.  Read it twice. Read it again. Epic.

88: Why to make the switch to organic skincare with Therese Kerr | IRL in the studio!  

You know we always say we love each and every #GetMerry podcast episode but this one was ah-freaking-mazing. We LOVE LOVE LOVE Therese Kerr. This is why we love our new format of podcasting. YAY for live IRL podcasting.  Chatting to these amazing people, feeling the energy, the passion, the eye contact, the hugging after, etc etc. It wins! It makes podcasting oh so fun and meaningful. We're so grateful for each and every guest. We feel so excited to share them out to you, each and every week (except when we are busy or we forget, ooooopsie!). This is the stuff we talk about: Chemicals in skin care and the health damages they do to us. How Therese Kerr started The Divine Company. We chatted about all the amazing Divine products. This was super interesting as there was a heap of science behind it all. Therese knows a lot!  The importance of family. Conscious shift happening around the world. Especially with young women. How we can detox from chemicals. How to get them out of the system! And more! Merrymaker mantra of the week: As I embrace the riches of nature to cleanse and nurture my body, I restore myself, my divinity and the service I am to all that is. Loved this mantra shared by Therese!

87: Embrace your own authentic connection | Live interview with Amber Hawken and Wellsome Jema-Lee  

This is definitely an explicit interview, swear words = tick! This week we chat to not one but two of our awesome, new Gold Coast friends! We've sparked quite the friendship through LOTS of good food, dancing, laughter and connection (hence the title of this episode!).  They're both EPIC-AS-GOOD humans who have so much knowledge and inspo to share with the world.  During this episode live angel card readings kind of take us on a journey of topics... but it all comes back to self-connection and truly embracing who you are.  It's an hour full of good convo and serious amounts of fun/laughter... we know you're gonna love it!  This is the stuff we talk about: Acceptance... of everything. Self-connection: why it's so important and how to practice more of it. Being honest with yourself and others. Unpacking your baggage and letting go of that sh1t. Yoga and why it's the ultimate practice to get to know yourself. Relationships and how to create meaningful ones.  Merrymaker mantra of the week: Embrace your own authentic connection. Everything we spoke about kept coming back to self-connection and awareness. They're kind of the same thing. Life is a discovery of who we truly are, peeling back all the layers and really getting to know ourselves... even though this can be a really difficult thing to put ourselves through. In being vulnerable, we allow ourselves to FLOURISH and blossom.  Links to Ambz and Jem Jem! Check out Amber's stuff over here (including her #1 book, online program and more!). Check out Jema's stuff over here (she can help you with all your nutrition needs!). Amber's book launch is happening Sunday 23 April on the Gold Coast, RSVP here!

86: Don't train to get a better body. Train to be a better body | Live interview with Nate Hammon  

This week we chat to Nate Hammon, who is an epic Personal Trainer (been doing it for 17 years) as well as the founder of Fitness Training Academy. Carla is currently studying for her Certificate 3 and 4 in fitness with Nate which is a lotta fun (which means we'll be sharing some fun workouts here on the bloggity blog soon!). It's an hour full of good convo we know you're gonna love!  This is the stuff we talk about: Body image from the male perspective (listen to THIS episode if you want our personal stories). Why people fail at their fitness goals and how NOT to do this. Other ways to motivate you to exercise besides always trying to hit PBs.  Comparison and how it sucks. WE talked in more detail about this topic in THIS episode.   Actual beauty, the inside stuff is what really matters.  Merrymaker mantra of the week: Don't train to get a better body. Train to be a better body. We talked a lot about exercise since Nate is a PT and we love love LOVE this mantra! It was so interesting to hear Nate talk about body image issues from a male perspective and also from a trainers perspective.  Like how he would train one person and they would look at someone else in the gym and make a comment like... "Ohhh.... she has lovely legs. I'd love legs like that" Then Nate would go and train lovely leg lady and she would say... "I really need to work my legs more, I hate them!" Take a listen to the episode and share with anyone you know who needs to hear more on this topic.

85: Social media is not socialising | Live interview with Marcus Pearce  

This week we chat to the epic man Marcus Pearce. It was a heap of fun. Marcus is such a lovely dude we have a lot of love for this man!   This is the stuff we talk about: Setting goals and why so many of us fail How to get re-motivated Human connection, self-connection Social media taking over human connection Importance of physical touch How good exercise is The relationship between lack of exercise and dementia (YES, dementia!) AND MORE! Merrymaker mantra of the week: Social media is not socialising. How much time are you spending on social media? Is it replacing in real life (IRL) connection? For us... yes it was. So we love that this topic came up and we love this mantra Marcus shared with us.  Don't get us wrong we LOVE (love love love) social media! It's bloody amazing BUT we started to use it way too much and it does have a way of getting in the way of REAL life human connection.  So if you're feeling a bit off with your relationships... where are you putting your focus? The real life people or the people on your social media? Because where your focus goes energy will flow (as Tony would say!). We go into way more detail on the episode. Listen and let us know what you think! If you love it, be sure to subscribe on your podcast app. Here are the links to iTunes and Stitcher for Androids. If you love the episode we'd be forever grateful if you left us a review and a 5 star review (ok, we'll accept 4 star but really what's an extra star hehe). We're already excited about next week's live interview in da studio! YAY! Always merrymaking, Emma + Carla

84: comparison is the thief of joy  

Ok, so we just got back from recording this podcast in the studio. Before that, we had coffee and delish brunch, before that we spent like 90 minutes surfing (well floating around, trying to catch waves and getting dumped), before that we did yoga.  Yeh... as you can imagine we are 100% in some kind of Merry bliss land and things get kinda cray cray in this episode. Whoops! But we're also 100% sure there are a couple of golden moments amongst the cray cray. Surely! This is what went down in Merry Land.... The Merry News update. We are in some kind of workflow river. It's pretty epic and we are way more organised than normal so this rocks.  GetMerry recipe app update. Becuase it's our fave project. Three words: Easter Chocolate Bundle.  Beauty and the Beast. How epic the movie was. We sing, just a little bit. Also how good that Disney added the multi-cultural and same-sex relationship aspect.  LOL moment Emma talks about her wedgie slide incident at White Water World. Haha. Actually such fun times! Minus the wedgie violation.    Merry Mantra of the week In this week's episode we talk about how the answer to everything is always to come back to gratitude BUT actually, this week's mantra is Comparison is the thief of joy. This little mantra has helped us in so many ways! Whether you compare your business, your body, your family, your job, your life etc. we have a few actions steps that will help. We also talk about our own experiences because guess what... it's super easy to fall back into comparing yourself. Even when you know it is thief of all good. Yahuh.  Super pumped to bring you even more #GetMerry podcasts yewww! Next week we are interviewing our good friend Marcus Pearce. We have a feeling it's going to be a heap of fun.  Always merrymaking, Emma + Carla

83: This too shall pass | Live interview with Karly Nimmo  

We swear a little bit in the episode (whooooooops). We also talk over each other. But we reckon you should all go and listen! Ahh we’re super pumped to share this #GetMerry episode with you all. Karly Nimmo is an amazing human and we’re really beginning to realise that one of the best things about this whole Merrymaking journey is meeting the people we get to meet. Meeting amazing people doing different things who share their magic with the world. This episode is filled with a lot of laughter and conversation about some pretty big and important topics. We’ve kind of realised that we want to talk about the real stuff. And Karly is the real deal. We talk about stuff like… Depression and anxiety Failure Woo-woo stuff and the universe Intuition Imposter syndrome Business struggles (lack of cash flow!) Why surface level convos suck a little bit Connection and friendships Self-connection  Being you and living your truth Yoga and meditation And a heap more. Merry Mantra of the week We asked Karly to share her current fave mantra and it’s a good one.  This too shall pass. A good reminder for us all. To know that whatever struggle you are going through right now, it will pass.  But also to remember that the good times will pass too… so really stop to enjoy them.

82: because... cake (the body image episode)

Be sure to check out all the deets at getmerry.com Ohh we discuss our super cute cartoon-a-fied selves (yes, we just called ourselves cute) Checkout getmerry.com to see our video! Body image!

Always love talking about going out for dinny! Hehe fun and yum!    Merry Mantra of the week Because... cake (and yes this is one of our Get Merry quote cards, you can buy them in our new shop!). Yes, we touch on the topic of cake but actually, this episode is mostly about body image and the ups and downs of our journies. We both have the best body image mindset we've ever had right now.

YAY! Remember, you can SUBSCRIBE on iTunes or Stitcher and if you LOVE the episode, give us a 5 star rating and write us a merry-filled review!  During the episode, we start with Merrymaker News. It's a great transition from #MerryBiz to #GetMerry as we take you through everything we're working on. We also take you through all the lessons we've picked up on during the week. We talk happiness, mindset shifts and life in general. Pretty sure we even get on the whole what is the meaning of life? topic (oh oh, haha). Yes, we ramble, yes we laugh and yes it's a whole lotta MERRY! So if you're looking for a dose of something magical each week, #GetMerry is the show for you! It's the perfect show to listen to if you want to start adding more positivity into your life. We also end each episode with a Merrymaker Mantra. And this week's is: Follow your freaking bliss. You've heard us bang on about this before. Yah?!  It's an adapted mantra by the philosopher, Joseph Campbell. And it's all kinds of magical epic. "Follow your bliss and doors will open where there were once only walls." Holy shit that quote changed our lives forever and ever. We first heard it when we watched the documentary, Finding Joe. Seriously, that is compulsory watching for anyone reading this. You will love it. But first, finish this and listen to the podcast! When we started Merrymakers, there was no strategy, no business in mind, no nothing really. We just had this something telling us to start writing and creating recipes. So we did! We were having so much fun doing it, so we did more of it. And we learned about blogging. And social media. And newsletters. Oh my! Then we watched Finding Joe. And then we realised that Merrymakers… well, that was our bliss. And this whole Follow Your Bliss concept was pretty freaking epic. And apparently revolutionary to us (even though it was all over the internet!) and so we started sharing this message out to our Instagram followers. We’d share it once a day, almost. Follow your bliss. Do what you love! Follow the fun! All the inspirational quotes you can think of. And do not scoff… we know you love them too! At this time we were still working in our full-time soul-sucking government desk jobs, seriously we need a shorter name to describe it. But the message was loud and clear. Merrymakers was our bliss and if we followed it, if we kept going, opportunities would flow right on in. It turned into the perfect kick up the butt too. We’d been sharing the quotes, inspiring others to do what they love, but here we were still working those soul-sucking jobs and not REALLY following our bliss. Not really living our truth. We were good at speaking the speak but... doing the do? We weren’t there yet. So the quitting of our jobs came about just 1 and a half years into our Merrymaker journey with no plan, no strategy, no money and a fat mortgage and USA trip booked in!  What were we thinking? We weren’t! But Joseph Campbell said that if we followed it… doors would open. (Yes, we're a bit cray cray). Oh and that they did! The day we quit our jobs, a sponsorship deal fell into our inbox. We were invited to speak at events, collaborate with others and featured all over the media. You know that flow they talk about? We were deep in it and it felt good! What also felt good was that when we shared the follow your bliss message it felt true and real. So your bliss is your thing. It’s something you love to do so much that it makes your smile from your heart to your teeth. And hey, guess what?! Your bliss doesn’t have to be a full time job thing! Don’t add pressure to yourself by saying it’s gotta be a career. By adding 5 minutes of bliss to every single day, your life will get all magical on you. Trust us. Can’t find

73: 2016 Merrymaker review! The epic, the good, the bad, the blessings!  

In episode 73 we take a look back at 2016 and the year that it was! Holey moley… big freaking year!  Take a listen! We have lotsa fun in this episode! Most loved moment of 2016? Carla:  My most loved moment in 2016 probably I’m gonna say our road trip, L.A to San Francisco it was freaking amazing and the best thing ever. Emma: There was just so many epic things that I can’t even think which one but I think it would be all the traveling combined! What was your most favorite travel moment? Carla: Most fav. travel moment would be when we went to Bangkok and we were on a roof top bar looking over the amazing city at all the lights all the stars and just crazy meeting amazing people. Emma: I think both America trips and Bangkok trip and also Melbourne trip, going to the races, going to the Melbourne cup. What about your biggest lesson of 2016? Emma: Biggest lesson would be ‘focus on joy’ like just always focus on adding more joy to your day and your projects and whatever you’re doing because, life is short and you don’t know when it’s gonna end. Like you just don’t know. So it’s like, what‘s the point of getting really stressed out about work, business, relationships when actually you don’t know your time is up? Focus on adding joy and if you find yourself being cranky, being nasty because of just a bad mood like have stuff that can get out of your funk. Be aware of what is creating that funk. Figure out how to make it get better just self-awareness of that, self-awareness of happiness. Favorite Podcast Episode? That we recorded with another person we interviewed… Emma: I think all the ones with Dan Norris because they were live, and also Mark Manson’s podcast. He was so helpful, he has this really good perspective of life stuff and to make it less sucky, he’s really awesome. I would definitely recommend going back in listening to that one. Carla: My favorite podcast episode I’m gonna say yes to both what you said (Mark Manson and Dan Norris) I agree with you. But also Hal Elrod. His episode helped so many people and it helped us as well. Favorite book you read this year? Carla and Emma: Create or Hate by Dan Horris Emma: The art of War  by Steven Pressfield, The Subtle of Not Giving a Fuck Favorite Restaurant/Dinner Moment of 2016? Emma: We’ve had so many dinners this year! Carla: Can I just combine all the bonita bonitas together? Emma: Mexican foods, mexican tacos and the best margaritas! What about overseas dinner? Emma: Phuket, in Melbourne when we went to Facny Hanks! Carla: What about Ojai when we had Pizza with Derek and Marleen under the fairy lights?! What about the Monterey… What about in New York we went to Mexican? Hardest Moment of 2016? Emma: There was a lot of struggles with direction, clarity, we made mistakes or what to focus our energy on, it’s just being a massive year of stepping up and not quite making it.
