Happy Holidays Darling

Thank you for watching the antics of Tallulah and Marge this year and for following The Happiness Movement. Rounding out the year with tips on how to handle the holidays if you find yourself flying solo. All is not lost darling, simply ready yourself to become a spy for the season…


How to be Happy-Be of Service

Choose action. Choose Happiness. Marge says it like it is at the end of The Happiness Movement. Hope that you have enjoyed this series and that your happiness levels are attaining dizzying heights darling. Take care, enjoy the great outdoors, the people you love and should one find oneself dabbling in Goat Yoga, Good luck!


How to be Happy: Spend time with someone you love…or a goat

The 9th assignment of The Happiness Movement is to spend time with someone you love. In this wild world of living apart from so many loved ones, I would like to mention that even if you’re not physically in the same place as a loved one one could still think about spending time on a call, in an email or even with a pen and a piece of paper writing out ones words.


Goat Yoga – Week 8

Especially with the advent of Iphones and such even when we do happen to find ourselves outside the tendency can be still to be looking down, connected online but not with our environment. Spending time looking up and the sky, breathing fresh air and staring at clouds daydreaming have been proven to reduce stress. Add a small farmyard animal into your outside experience and happiness levels soar it seems. Thanks to Hello Critter Goat Yoga for this weeks Happiness Movement challenge, as per Live Happy.


Happiness Movement. Week 7 Assignment: Write an appreciative email.

Following on from the last step of the Happiness Movement in which Tallulah and Marge perhaps went a little over board with the generosity assignment This week’s assignment is to spend a moment writing an appreciative email or letter to someone. Perhaps necessary if one overspends and has to back peddle a little with ones landlord on the rent check. Anyway. Life moves at such a ferocious lick that at times writing more than essential emails and such can seem out of our grasp so the challenge this week is to take a moment to do just that. Bon courage one and all and let us know how you get on.


Be Generous – Week 6

Sometimes we can think that being generous amounts to spending money on people but actually, despite what Tallulah and Marge get up to in this weeks episode it doesn’t always need to come down to money.

Time is perhaps our most precious commodity so whether or not you’re splashing cash or simply having a couple of tea with someone I do believe that being generous will improve ones happiness levels. As laid out in Live Happy’s Happiness Movement.

Anyway darling on with the show…


Digging Deep with the Happiness Movement – Week 2

Its the end of week 2 of The Happiness Movement here at Feathers and Toast HQ and Tallulah and Marge are reporting in on how they got on with their second assignment “giving people the benefit of the doubt”.

And what a week it was to practice giving people the benefit of the doubt. Am I right? 😉 So nice of the world to give us this opportunity to really strengthen our muscles. Did you give it a try? If so let us know how it went.

For those on the journey with us, your next week’s assignment is to cultivate gratitude by focusing on the wonderful people and things in your life. And go!!!


I’m Back! With exciting news to share!

Wow I’ve been honest in this blog! I was just looking back at it, in order to pick up where I left off, hoping to seamlessly get you up to speed, and was struck by my own honesty.

But I’m happy I was that honest because the truth can set you free. Going after dreams can test you deeply, both internally and externally, with no guarantees that you will ever succeed, often taking way longer than you think you have endurance for, and if through this blog I’ve inspired even one person to just keep on facing whatever they need to face, by being an example of what can happen when you never give up, then I am happy.

So without further ado, I am thrilled to report that Mhairi and I have pitched a new show idea (starring Tallulah of course) to a network and they have requested a sizzle for it. Yay!!!! It’s different than anything we ever set out to do, but yet somehow exactly what it was always meant to be. We’ve got a great feeling about it. So much so that we feel like celebrating.

We just finished shooting and will be spending the next month or so editing and shopping it around, but in the meantime we thought we’d celebrate by spending some time with our fans and hopefully pulling in some new ones.

Starting next Tuesday (4/25/17) we will be re-releasing Seasons 1 & 2 of Feathers and Toast directly on FB, 1 episode per week at 10pm EST/7pm PST, with a lively talk back in the comments section between Mhairi and I (and occasionally “Tallulah.”)

It is our sincerest hope that you join us there every Tuesday night, for a little hang out to laugh about the show, trade stories, and in general just have a little bit of fun.

And this leads me to…

Industry Tip # 41
When a network is generous enough to give you inside information about the type of content they are looking for, humbly listen, and then use all the creativity at your disposal to figure out how to align your content with their needs. This is the necessary “business” part of “show.”

I leave you with some BTS pics, compliments of our favorite photographer, Katie Nolan.
