Detoxify Your Life : DIY & Natural Beauty

We’re ba-ack! Now in our new podcast format.

detoxify your life : the maven circle podcast



:48 Why did we decide to stop blogging regularly and switch to a monthly podcast format? And why did it take us so long to get back in the groove? All those questions are answered.

3:05 We get to the subject of today’s episode: detoxifying your beauty routine, sharing stories of our personal beauty journeys toward using more natural products, and making our own, and why we decided to make the switch.

19:01 We introduce The Maven’s Guide to DIY & Natural Beauty, an e-book addendum to this podcast packed with additional resources and tips to help you dive deeper and start making changes in your own life- available for instant download for only $5 below!

20:51 We introduce So & So Says, a segment where we’ll offer advice to listeners, anonymously! We know a lot of stuff we cover can be difficult to open up about, so we wanted to create a way for you to comfortably get real and get some things off your chest, and receive some non-judgemental advice from us and the Maven Circle community.

22:08 Letters to our Former Selves. This is a segment where we’ll write letters to our selves at different points in time, offering advice and perspective on things we wish we had known then, in an effort to make peace with some of the ways we’ve been harsh on ourselves, or judged ourselves in the past.

  • This month, we open up about our struggles around beauty and self-worth in letters to our teenage selves. Hear Jen’s letter at 22:40 and Jena’s at 24:55.

Both of us love to play instruments and sing- Jen plays ukulele, Jena plays piano (that’s her playing the podcast transitions, too :) We record all of our music on our iPhones and send individual tracks back and forth, then Jen mixes them all together.

  • This month, we’re doing “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue”, a really cute little ditty from the 20′s about a loveable, non-materialistic girl. We think we sound like juke joint ladies from a bygone era singing together- what do you think?

We hope you enjoy!



We’ll also have an informational supplement each month called The Maven’s Guide, a little e-book we put together for those of you who want to go further into the podcast subject. They’ll have additional resources, exercises, tips and more to help you get started making some awesome changes in your life, for just $5!

This month we have The Maven’s Guide to DIY & Natural Beauty, packed with information to help you detoxify your daily beauty routine!
