S1E22 – Lil San Deezies

Can you believe we are wrapping up our first season? We are so proud and excited to reflect on our first year of podcasting, local summer nights, and this friggin pandemic. We’ve been aged in the barrels for a few years, so listen up lil San Deezies!

This week’s creature comforts are classic combos of coffee and cannabis, yum. Kelli ordered True Meds delivery of Summer Nights, a hyphy sativa blend that is perfect for December. If you are from a coastal town, then you know that the true locals summer is in, well, the winter! San Diego has been showing off glorious weather and we are loving the locals only vibes. Goodbye crowds, we never missed you.

Adrianna listens intently to Kelli’s story of being 30, seasoned, and wine boosh. White girl wasted and frivolously spending too much money on a Cab Sav, hear about a magical trip to the mountains! It’ll energize you like CAH-CAINE, err, Cacao does on a bright sunny Saturday.

This week’s small business is close to our heart, as Kelli has been eating from Sipz Vegetarian Restaurant for years! We love @sipzcafe and I seriously order garlic fries, a Thai iced tea and summer rolls every week. EVERY WEEK. 

Would you buy a coffee table book of Poshmark Idiots? Well look out and watch your Amazon carts, because we really have something good here. Thanks for an amazing season everyone, and get ready for a really exciting SEASON 2 with some fantastic new features, guests, and *cough cough* weeeeeeeeeee-d!

S1E15 – Keef the Sneak

Greetings, earthlings! It’s Kelli and Adrianna here, so excited to chat about a few of our favorite things! Some of this week’s highlights include an antique green dresser set with lion-head Lannister knobs, our dire need for matching cast-iron tattoos, and finding jalapenos in the bathroom. Take a shot every time Kelli says “here’s the deal’, and cheers to another great episode! 
Welcome to Great-Great-Housekeeping, where we finish what we start, tie up loose ends, and try our best to to finish our sentences from a week prior. You can:-Push Streaming Daisies (mentioned E13 and E14 this season) on Prime Video! There are two seasons available. And also, DEXTER.-Is FML still a website? Yes, and it is as depressing as your facebook feed. FMYLIFE.COM from our teenage years has taken a turn, with awkward humor poking fun at sexism, ableism, racism, and actual fuck-my-life situations. No comic relief on their front; good thing you have our podcast to bring joy to your life. …’They’re welcome’…
-The pumpkin carving show on Hulu that Adrianna watched in her bathtub is called ‘Halloween Wars’ and it is a Food Network series 🙂
This season, we want to help you give FREE and thoughtful homemade, holiday gifts! Each episode until the end of the year, we will be giving excellent gift ideas for any of the holidays that you celebrate. Whether you love Christmas, Yuletide, Hannukuh, or you are atheist and just f*cking love the holidays, we got yo’ back. Tune in for this week’s FREE and crafty item! You’ll need a recycled, glass jar, so save your Not Your Nonna’s Jar and get naughty with us.
This week’s local business that we are featuring is Yasu Kochi Farms! Visit yasukochifamilyfarms.com for most recent information about their fantastic farm boxes. Kelli has been receiving boxes from this CSA for months now! Our friends, moms, and friend’s moms love this box of gorgeous and local produce that gets delivered to your door. No, we aren’t sponsored! We just love Yasu Kochi and hate Walmart, and you can tune in to find out why.
For our creature comforts, we made a vegan dip from our zucchini and yellow squash from the Yasu Kochi farm box. Sautee 1 chopped zucchini and 2 small yellow squashes with: EVOO, garlic salt, pepper, and fajita seasoning. Using the stiryfry and it’s juices, blend until applesauce consistency and use for dipping chips or raw veggies! 🙂 Cost? 75 cents, no joke.

set up for success and setting the scene 🙂


Adrianna rolled us some Wedding Cake from Clayborne Brand’s ‘Power Pack’, and Kelli rolled some NY Sour Diesel from TruGreenMeds medical cannabis delivery in SD. Normalize Cannabis! It is our job as privileged white women to stand proudly and bravely in a plume of smoke. You don’t have to be a cannabis consumer to be a cannabis normalizer. Get high, or get out of our way! We have souls to save from needless incarceration. You think marijuana and racism aren’t related? Think again, Satan.

S1E13: Lil Hallowayne

Have you heard are sPoOoOoKy intro? Amazing, right?! Thank you to our creative masterminds, Adrianna and producer Justin @mixedbytruelove, for making our creaky door dreams a reality. We are so incredibly excited to announce that we are officially on APPLE PODCASTS! Yahoo! We have been waiting for this killer n’ thriller moment. Yay!

On this week’s episode, the queen of unpopular opinion talks about her fierce love for bombardier jackets, but a fierce hate for book jackets. New to the bombardier scene? We are too; see below for an image of this iconic ass jacket!

Thanks for the history lesson, veteran cutie from the DMV! #grandpamagnet

Ya’ll ever fiercely argued about how much you agree with one another? Somehow, you end up screaming at each other sweet nothings like, ‘EXACTLY’, ‘I KNOW’, or ‘THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I SAID’. We fiercely agree more than we realize! We are quite literally lit, dare we say thunderstruck, our excitement to be on the same page!

GREAT Housekeeping! This new segments in our podcast addresses all of our mentionables, works cited, activism and after-thoughts. Because we are talking all-things-costumes, we wanted to give a friendly reminder that education cultural appropriation should be your #1 priority this holiday season. With so many excellent costumes to honor and create, let’s kick white racist costumes to the CURB.

Teen Vogue – My Culture is Not your Costume

Let’s ditch the grass skirts, and pick up some actual grass! This week’s cannabis comfort is TIKI RAIN, a flower strain from OutCo that we thoroughly enjoyed this week.

We sure do mention a lot of random shit in this episode, so let’s get cracking! First things first, Chimpanzee on a Segway is an iconic video that you can still stream at your leisure. I am SO SORRY that this annoying song will be in the rest of your head for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. 13 years later and I am going STRONG.

Our small business this Saturday? @Knotsandfinds! Adrianna talks about these MAGNIFICENT witch hat earrings that she ordered for her lovely motha for her birthday this past week.

Interested in being a special guest on our show? We’ll spoil you rotten! Reach out to us on @karmasdpodcast Instagram for more information. We love talking small business, and the only request we ask of our guests is to be CANNABIS positive! Does this mean you need to smoke for 82 minutes while we record? Certainly not, but we HIGHLY suggest it 🙂 You can advocate for the normalization of cannabis simply by loving and listening to us. Our goal is to make cannabis as normal as a glass of wine; instead of standing in our way, help us open the door! We respect your choices, and as our guest you’ll certainly respect ours. We love you!!

#TeacherTuesday- My Little Free Library and Poshmark Platform Unite!

Dear friends! It is day 56 of Quarantine for us over here in sunny San Diego. I recently became a Free Little Library owner in December, and have been happily collecting books for my library.

In addition to plumping up my own stock, I thoroughly enjoy restocking the other libraries in my community. There are a few popular libraries that are underserved, always emptied and sad before I arrive.

One of the most beautiful observations that I have had with this pandemic is that all of our community libraries are FULL! I truly believe that the community is using their libraries, as I am noticing constant movement and rearranging in my own library, and 2 others that I frequently steward. Yay! And so, I have had an excess of 100 books to donate, sitting in my home.

Let’s segway here, as I remind you all that I am a Poshmark Ambassador! I have been running a cute little online shop for over 5 years now. There are tons of acronyms for poshers and online shoppers alike; are you privy to FWP? Free with Purchase Items are one of my favorite things to offer in my shop. Things that aren’t quite profitable enough to sell, things that are used, damaged, or need a new home. You see, the Poshmark shopper pays for 5lbs of shipping costs NO MATTER WHAT. So, when you buy an Anthropologie polka-dot dress from my closet for $14, you pay $6.99 for 5lbs of Priority Mail. Why not add a few things?!

I want Poshers to be curious about reading! And boy, are the Nicholas Sparks books a hit! It has been so fun to see shoppers buy a trinket for themselves, like Nike running shorts, and add a copy of my favorite book to their order for free.

I think I may be the first person to have a FREE LITTLE LIBRARY in my Poshmark shop! I am deeply inspired to share and would love if anyone wanted to replicate something similar in their own shop.

Are you a Poshmark Seller? This is for you!

There are 2 ways to list FWP items. You can:

-List the item as $3 and instruct the buyer to deduct the price from their offer (in the comments section)

-List as 0 dollars (but then is marked as not for sale, and the customer as to personally reach out to see if the book is available still.

I opted for the first option, in bold! (Items cannot be listed as less than $3 in Poshmark due to the $2.95 seller fee)

Happy Poshing!

Homemade Easter Baskets for my Elders – #Teacher Tuesday

I have always been inspired by my grandma!

Earlier this month, we celebrated Easter Sunday in Quarantine. My Catholic grandmother has gone to church every year for Easter since she was born. 78 years or church!

I have so many excellent memories of Easter Sunday as a kid, and this inspires me for today’s TEACHER TUESDAY. I vividly remember my uncle hand-crafting a scavenger hunt on Easter throughout my grandma’s House, with notes hidden in the dryer and in the lemon tree.

Thank you to everyone that makes the holidays so special for all the kids around them! Dyeing eggs, receiving Easter eggs, eating tons of candy and peeps, my favorite, dressing in my Easter best-

Regardless of your religious views, may you find solace in the culture and love that brings community together. I love Spring! Inpsired by my grandma, I realized this is the first year she has NEVER gone to church. Quarantine and pandemic only allows for virtual church, which she partook in, but she admits it isn’t the same.

Touchee, grandma, so here is a handmade basket!

I made her felt flowers and attached them to a thrifted basket; this was a fun project from early Quarantine Days.

Thanks for finding inspiration from my greatest teachers; may your greatest takeaway be to gift-give!

Practice some chair yoga with me!

Quarantine Crafting Queen Activities – #ThankfulThursday

Well aren’t I a quarantine crafting queen! What have you been doing to keep busy? I know many have their hands full with working at home and having littles, so I am appreciating the luxury of being able to knit and already having so many extra supplies so that I do not have to spend any money. All situations are different and all are suffering, so I am doing my part and trying to stay sane in the meantime. Aren’t we all?

Some of my favorite crafts that have been keeping us busy:

1. Knitting beanies and plant sleeves with a KNITTING LOOM

2. Finally putting all those puzzles together that have been stacking up in our game cabinet

3. Bake a recipe that requires more than one step- I made cinnamon streusel!

4. Rearrange the entire house to remove stifled and stagnant energy. Bonus points if you are able to bring some of your outdoor plants into the house!

5. Notice things that you haven’t before, like your book titles that are put in upside down in the shelf. Ha- it took being upside down in yoga practice for me to notice this!

6. Check on our free little library! Using safe social distancing and sanitization practices, we have loved being able to walk outside, get some fresh air, and see how many people have been reading a little bit more than they are used to! The collective is appreciative of these libraries as resources because all city libraries are closed

7. Love on your fur babies- letting our dog stay in our bed a little bit more than he usually is allowed. I think he is getting fat!

8. Making and watching YouTube videos- my favorite past time, as I have a few months of catching up to do with Jenna Marbles.

Happy reading and viewing friends! Stop drop and stretch right now!

Ordering a Plaque- Preventing a Heart Attack #FreeLittleLibrary Fridays

IMG_6367

Picture taken a la ME in 2017, San Diego CA!

I love to customize! I love how this plaque added a name, DJ, and that they also added a positive mantra, always keep believing! For this week’s FLL post, I thought I would set a few things straight:

1. It technically is not Free Little Libraries, but rather, LITTLEFREELIBRARY.ORG. Whether it rolls off the tongue better, is due to my dyslexia, or my lack of awareness, I truly have no idea 🙂 But just so you have all the facts, know the difference between FLL > LFL

2. You do not have to register your free little library. That’s right, you can go rogue and stay off the map!

I decided to register my first free little library because I wanted to see what it is all about. For about $42, I was able to register my library, become a member and stewardess for life, and have a plaque mailed to me. I say, this is worth it! 🙂 However, you don’t need a plaque in order to acknowledge your awesomeness. There were a few speedbumps, so enjoy my humor.

Pro tips:

-Ordering a plaque and sponsoring a library makes an excellent gift. My stepdad made me a free little library for my 29th birthday, and my mama ordered me the plaque. It is only of my favorite gifts OF ALL TIME! I hope to gift-give as wonderfully as they gift-gave!

-Learn, read, educate, and then register your library through HERE

-Grant yourself patience. The plaque took less than week to arrive, which was awesome. However, after you install your library, you have to register its location with pictures, information, and GPS coordinates. You cannot enter this information until after you have paid for, and received, your plaque in the mail. So, if you wanted to register your library online and put it on a business card before your library launch party (cough cough), you have to wait until the actual plaque comes into the mail to know the #, and another 2 weeks before it is listed on the website.

-After I registered my library, it was entered incorrectly on the site. I had to enter a new petition to have my library added. This added about 10 business days to my journey, but like I said, I granted myself patience FIRST and was able to handle these tasks with ease 🙂

-You must enter GPS coordinates. When applying, the site will ask for the address OR the GPS coordinates. I obviously opted for the address, as I don’t have the GPS coordinates of my grandmother’s house in my back pocket- ha. However, a few days after submitting my registration with an address (remember, first I paid, then I got the plaque, then I registered it, then they did it wrong, then they needed the GPS coordinates, then I wondered if this was worth all the effort)- The site admin sent me directions on how to…drumroll….

-Type in the house address on google maps and find the GPS coordinates, and reply to the site admin’s email with the result of my research. You couldn’t do that on your own, BOO?

-I digress. I think my library is now live on the site. I gave up! There’s always tomorrow, and I’ll link our library at the top of our FLL page (scroll to the top of our homepage)

In summation- I will absolutely do it again, with all the time in the world and the GPS coordinates of my library in my back pocket 🙂 Oh, and a catchy phrase to add to my customization!

Stewardess Refill #2 – Free Little Library Fridays

The only books inside of the library when I arrived. These 3 were NOT in the library when I first stocked its shelves a week ago, meaning that people are truly participating the mantra, take a book, leave a book!
Thank you, Sabrina, for the 100+ book donation! I am thrilled to share these books with the community, and to have kept a few for myself (for now!!!)
My second stewardess refill at this library!

Greeting, family!

On this week’s free little library feature, I decided to revisit a library in my neighborhood that is well underserved.

With the most foot traffic of all of the free little libraries around, I have made it a priority to stop by this location about once a week. Thank you, everyone, who continues to donate books to my favorite cause, as this does not go unnoticed.

With two trips to the car and a smile on my face, I continued to refill this library. I have noticed that this library does splendid in the rain, is energetically magnetic, and I am looking forward to stopping by again today or tomorrow, as I have truck-load of refills for this prettylilthang.
