Livestreaming and Podcasting:

For livesteaming thousands of broadcasts, I used the Blue Yeti microphone. It's a "plug and play" and has a USB that plugs into your computer. SO easy.

A great option for out-and-about livestreaming is the Rode Smart Lav + lapel microphone. Great sound on this one!

For lighting, I used this Cowboy Lighting kit. Super easy to set up and use. Looks GREAT and makes videos more pro.

For podcasting in my home studio, I use a Rode mic on a Rode boom arm that's attached to my desk. It comes with a C-clamp but you can drill a hole if you want. 

When I'm out on my balcony or doing mobile interviews, I use an ATR 2005 microphone, Super easy hand-held mic. I cover the mic with a foamy cover (also called a "windscreen") or use a plastic "pop filter" (they both serve the same purpose) to make for better sound and less forcefull P and S sounds. Both of those and a cable are included in this kit.

In my home studio, I record through a RodecasterPro which allows me to do a load of things including end-to-end podcast production with sound effects and multiple guests, super easy remote interviews with high-quality sound via cell phone or blue tooth and so many other things!

I also use Wondershare Filmora to change my live broadcasts (videos are mp4 files) magically into audio files (mp3 files) so I can make podcast episodes out of them! This is how I "strip the audio out of my broadcasts."

Self Care:

When I drink coffee at home (all day!), I add collagen protein to it. This one is tasteless and dissolves completely.

My coffee also now gets 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, too! It's got antioxidants and the GOOD type of cholesterol--and is delish!

As you've seen in my Instagram stories, I LOVE frothy coffee! I have a couple of coffee frothers: this and this.

I put chia seeds into all of my smoothies, salads, and on top of avocado toast for additional protein and fiber. 

I put flaxseed into all my smoothies, cereals, and even into pasta once it hits my plate. I don't cook with it, but mix it into warm foods for added protein and fiber.

For my smoothies and daily warer: Jam-packed with superfoods, one lil scoop of this is amazing!

I take apple cider vinegar pills for better gut health, fiber and a boost to my immune system.

This is my yoga mat. I got it years ago when I was a lifestyle blogger and I love it because it's thick and doesn't hurt my knees--and it's lasted all these years!

I wear is the same nail polish that Queen Elizabeth wears exclusively! I wear it about 90% of the time...
