Listen here:

This week's episode is sponsored by:
So, we’ve talked about the amazing Lo-Lo Bar by Bar Maids before, and I’m sure you’ve all tried, and ADORE, it, but did you know that they also make an intensive moisturizer for your (FACE)? Face Pudding by Bar Maids is as deliciously decadent as its name suggests. There’s one for every skin type, and it’s such a simple way to give your skin the moisture it craves all year long. We all try to ensure that we’re as beautiful on the outside as we are on the inside, so why not use a natural, safe product that provides the kind of results you’d expect from the makers of the Lo-Lo Bar? Give it a try! Your beautiful face will thank you.  I mean, it’s like they say, the proof is in the pudding!
