GET BLESSED BY THE MESS
Longing for two new besties to chant the ‘OMG, YOU TOO?’ with? Anne-Cathérine will gladly get you hooked on the (un)explicit - and way too relatable - chats of Anushka Melkonian and Kawtar Ehlalouch. The MNM girlfriends don’t gatekeep and are destined to share every life lesson no one ever warned you about, and Anne-Cathérine approved those: “Anushka and Kawtar aren’t telling fairytales. Instead, they assure me of the fact that a messy life is a great one. They’re like my older sisters helping me out while they’re still figuring it out themselves, and I love them for it!”
COME & SPILL THE TEA
Binette has just started her big girl job and moved in with her girlfriends. Safe to say she can use some advice from the elders. Michelle Fleur, Benthe Liem, Amaka Hamelijnck, Bruna Rizk, and Elise Bak are the reason Binette survives every packed week. The five girlfriends from Amsterdam like to spill tea about their honest friendship, their bodies, daddy issues, and everything they're overanalyzing at night. "I used to watch shows like Grey's Anatomy and browse ELLE magazines to connect with strong women who inspired me. This is my new way of celebrating and elevating everyday experiences and opinions of women."
BORN TO BE WILD & FREE
Done dealing with the obstacles of being a woman in this society and in need of the support of your fellow feminist warriors? Angela found them, and their names are Nydia van Voorthuizen and Marie Lotte Hagen. After reading their feminist pamphlet, Angela knew her soul needed more of their intel on claiming her space as a woman.
“Every episode is a wake-up call because I learned to understand what ‘being a woman’ really means. Nydia and Marie taught me how to evaluate my own actions critically, and somehow through that, I started practicing to take on an increasingly inclusive, feminist view. As a result, I started looking at the world with a more sincere intention, with much more understanding of each other as women, as human beings.”
THE HIGH LOW ROLLERCOASTER
Every week, Karen puts on her headphones to dissociate from her own life and to immerse in those of British journalists Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton. During one (way too short) hour, the two women deep-dive into highbrow and lowbrow culture. Daily trivia, politics, and life events with a dash of British humor? Karen is a front-row listener: “These two ‘no bullshit’ women do not shy away from any kind of topic, and that’s exactly why their episodes will always be relevant brain food.”The High Low
Nanou likes her coffee with unsweetened career advice from Nadia El Makhfi and Yana Smits. They're her go-to power duo who attract the boldest people in business and ask them about their entrepreneurial secrets to inspire and educate women of all ages. "Being a young woman in my first professional working environment is a challenge, especially while I'm doing it without being surrounded by my main girlfriends.
Nadia and Yana try to walk a mile in each woman's shoes and dig deep during talks about topics like failure, empathy, and following your gut in a fast-paced and high-pressure environment. Such chats with two insanely inspiring women are convincing enough to push the play button already!"50 Koffies
When Celine’s up for a chat with the girls without having to get out of the house, she likes to ring up content creators Widya Soraya and Paula Molina Montes de Oca (Coco). The Dutch girlfriends welcome everyone to their safe space without the filters to give their two cents on self-development, spirituality, (self)love, and daily life. “Widya and Paula offer insights on how other women deal with similar issues in order to reflect on my own life events and put them into perspective. They also discuss topics like manifestation & (self)empowerment in a very accessible way, which is super instructive to develop my self-love and become a better me.”
