Episode Notes

We all know the struggles of finding the perfect shade of makeup. The beauty industry in the United States is tailored to people who don’t quite look like us. So, in a culture that doesn’t know how to help us figure out our own style, how do we know ourselves? For this very reason, we see more people of color coming up as style & beauty bloggers. Our guest on this episode, Deepica Mutyala, broke into the industry with a viral video on how to mask under eye circles with red lipstick. Since then she has quit her steady job & jumped head first into following her dreams.

BIG thank you to Deepica for talking to us! Make sure to follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & YouTube for all the latest tips.

Ep. 19 – College Dropout

Ep. 19 – College Dropout

WE ARE BACK!

Happy New Year party people. With the new year, we bring to you a new segment, “Brown Girl’s Guide to Survival”. Each episode we will be talking to one of the ever talented staff members over at Brown Girl Magazine. Don’t be fooled by the name men, this is just as much for you as our lady listeners.

On this episode we talk college education. What happens to a desi kid that decides to do the unspeakable & drop out of college? Are they shunned? Do they burst into flames? Are they doomed to a life of working in fast food drive though lanes? Nope. Turns out the path to success isn’t as narrow as the minds of our community. insert shrug emoji

Diggin the music as much as we are? Check out Leo Kalyan & his latest EP (which is seriously incredible go buy it.)

Ep. 18 – Throwback

Ep. 18 – Throwback

One of the questions we get asked most is “how did Chai Tea Party start”? We happen to record our first official meeting about the podcast. We brainstormed topics, we talked about fears, discussed some common truths & laughed way too much. This being our last episode of 2016, we thought it would be cool to give you guys an inside look into how this all started.

We will see you all in January. Thank you for all the love & support you have given us this year. There will be many more guests, lots of surprises & endless fun coming your way in 2017. Hope you all have a happy holiday & a great new years.


As always thank you to Brown Girl Magazine, the online publication that helps empower young South Asian women in the United States. GUYS don’t worry there is something for you too 🙂 Check out their group, Brown Boy. Follow them on @BrownGirlMag on everything & BrownGirlMag.com.
