The Big Boo Cast, Episode 107

If you’re in need of a little superficial to kick off your summer, this is the episode for you. We talk about nail polish, our nail-related frustrations, our favorite summer shoes, and all the reasons why we’re embracing the caftan for summer 2018.

We also discuss the fact that, in all of our Enneagram 9-ness, we are not ever concerned with any details at any point in time unless we’re talking about emotions. Because in that case we are HERE FOR ALL OF IT.

Hope y’all enjoy!

  1. Evelyn says:

    Do you think the neckline of the caftan is stretchy enough for breastfeeding?

  2. Do y’all have any good beach bag recommendations?

  3. Try putting the bracelet in the freezer. We’ve order some items from the far East that had the smell of some weird fish, egg, and the bowels of Hades combo that could clear the room. Wrap it in a bag, put it in the freezer for a few hours to a day pull it out and check. We’ve done this with things that can and can’t be washed and it works!

  4. Sophie, thank you! That looks like the perfect Mom bag! Any good new “essentials” (lip stuff, new sunscreen, hats, tanners, anything new and interesting that we should be aware of)?

  5. I want you to know that the entire time you and Melanie were discussing the caftan, all I could think about was Mrs. Roper, the landlord’s wife from Three’s Companty. She always wore a caftan!!

  6. Lydia Yoder says:

    I just ordered the caftan and got a great deal on new contacts while listening – thank you!!
    *also always want to try a 3rd love bra and always shut it down after about the 5th question, because…no energy for all of the details.
    *also also, the FBI guy in my phone sends me the best IG adds and I’m here for all of them. take my money. I appreciate Joanna’s good tip above, I’m sure it’s going to come in handy sometime.

  7. Candice says:

    Can you please do a review of the caftan, since I’m sure you have yours, Sophie? And please post a pic of you wearing it either on here or insta…I’m so thinking of ordering one but would love to know what you think since you have received it.
    I so love you guys and this one was just too funny!
