Wake Up

Two best friends’ honest musings on life, happiness, health, and wine.

Long Story 


Once upon a time in the quiet, peaceful village of Westerville, Ohio there were two freshman roommates named Nina and Liz. They boycotted washing dishes, made YouTube videos instead of studying, and thought they had life all figured out.

As it turned out, their journeys toward self-discovery and acceptance were only beginning (and still have a long way to go!). Now nearly a decade later the two of them have teamed up for their next big project, the Wine and Shine Podcast, a venture that seeks to inspire women to be their best and most authentic selves.
