6 women who inspire us and make us want to be better people.

Every now and then, we think how cool it would be to sit around a table with our idols. We fantasize about the questions we'd ask and how exciting it would be to simply share space with the women who inspire us daily.

With that being said, we thought it would be fun to pull together an official guest list, so that in the off chance that these extraordinary women were available, they could pencil it into their busy schedules.

On Kate's VIP Guest List:

  • Cheryl Strayed. I love her writing and listen to her podcast whenever I feel like I need a hug and fresh perspective. She’s so smart, strong, and a pioneer in many ways.
  • I have to include Stevie Nicks in this list. Although it’d take some prepping as I’d like to be one of those people who aren’t phased by stars … but truly it would be hard for me to keep it together. Her music has moved me, and I can’t get enough of her non-apologetic self-awareness and love. She’s been a role model for me for as long as I can remember.
  • Lisa Frank. She built a massive business and built a cult following and remained out of the spotlight for years. So fascinating! As a color lover I have much respect for her and her work.

On Emily's VIP Guest List: 

  • Caroline Myss. Her book, Anatomy of the Spirit, was a total game changer for me. I read it when I was in grad school and it helped me to make sense of the impact of emotional trauma on the physical body. I would love to learn more from Caroline and deep dive with her about how the mind, body, and soul connect.
  • Mira Kelley. Another author with another mind-blowing book. I could seriously sit down with her for hours, listening to stories of past life regressions and her own experiences with the work. Also, what dinner party would be complete without a group regression?!
  • I would be remiss for not including the powerhouse that is Martha Stewart on my list. She seriously gave me hope at a time when I was struggling to believe in myself. If SHE could find a way to create an empire that focused on food, crafting, and wellness than goddammit, so could I. 

Your turn! If you could invite anyone (dead or alive) to join you for dinner, who would you choose and why?
