I stumbled upon Lavendaire on YouTube first and I loved all of Aileen's tips and tricks to living a fulfilling life! When I realized she had a podcast, I knew I had to listen!! Aileen is very relatable and after every episode I take something away that I can implement into my life to make a positive change. I'm so happy our worlds collided :)
Changed my mind.
I gave a 5 star review in June and really felt I enjoyed this podcast but the past few episodes of Aileen complaining has really turned me off. This week (Aug 14) when she starts moaning on about how busy her week was because of the project SHE chose to do on youtube (the minimalist challenge) I had to turn it off. She’s complaining about her own choices and it’s not even strenuous work. She definitely fits into the millennial stereotype of being lazy especially when she had an episode dedicated to not wanting to work after her European vacation. Lol. I am sorry, I do really like Aileen as a person and have enjoyed her YouTube for a while now but for someone who lives with her mother and can work at leisure on any creative project that comes to mind, she gives herself a lot of mental obstacles. If you don’t want to do podcasts anymore then don’t! The last thing I want to hear on a podcast is the host complaining that they had to record a podcast! Best of luck.
I listened to this when I first woke up in the morning and it just filled me up with inspiration to make something beautiful out of my day. Thank you.
