Self Help Hipster Podcast S03E03: What A Time To Be Alone Review

A new episode in which we do a What A Time To Be Alone review, The Slumflower’s debut book! And I talk shit about Jurrasic World 2 and Insatiable. Because that’s who I am. More after the jump.




POMODORO-ING MY FACE OFF: Lianne used the Pomodoro technique religiously, and it still works like a charm.

HOLIDAY PICTURES: Andrew’s holiday got postponed so he didn’t do this one.

We have an interesting discussion on the concept of 30-day challenges and actual long term habit change. More on that next episode.


This month we do a What A Time To Be Alone review: Chidera Eggerue’s What A Time To Be Alone: the Slumflower’s guide on why you’re already enough! You can buy it here* for only 15 euros: I have this hardcover (Lianne) and it’s GORGEOUS.

If you wanna know more about Chidera: Her Vogue interview is really profound and her Twitter is my gospel.

Great @theslumflower Twiter threads: Mixed Signals & Loving yourself 

She did the Slumflower podcast for a while too, by the way.

Favorite quotes:

  • “Where there is peace, allow it to reign.”
  • “Minding your business is the new black”
  • “You cannot form a solid bond without vulnerability.”
  • “People with low standards are always the first to tellyou you are asking for too much.”
  • “You are the key, feel free to leave.”


JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM (Lianne): What a shit film. In theatres now.

INSATIABLE (Lianne): What a shit show and what a shitshow. Available on Netflix.

CONNER4REAL – BIN LADEN (Lianne): This song makes me LOLZ. Lonely Island forever!


BIRTHDAY GIFTS: Andrew got all decked out in decadent gear. Bally fannypack and Balenciaga slippers. (He looked awesome)

ADIDAS: You know me (Lianne). If I’m not wearing ADIDAS I’ve probably been bodysnatched.

SECRET LIFE OF JEFFREE STAR (Lianne): Excellent Shane Dawson documentary about icon Jeffree Star.
