A Date with Sugar and Spice: Romance Recommendations for Winter Break

The SUU News Podcast Network has released their ninth episode of season four: “A Date with Sugar and Spice.” 

This week, co-hosts Amanda Walton and Liz Armstrong share their favorite romance media recommendations. They list their favorite movies, TV shows, books and songs to binge-watch and listen to over winter break. 

Some of the movie recommendations include “A Walk to Remember” and “Little Women.” Their favorite romantic songs include the album “Nation of Two” by Vance Joy and the songs “Easy” by Camila Cabello, “Peer Pressure” by James Bay and “When the Party’s Over” by Billie Eilish. 

Armstrong also gives advice based on personal experience about how to get out of toxic relationships after a listener reached out for help. 

Walton shares what her ideal self-care night would be, which includes picking up food from Wendy’s and going home to get comfy and watch a movie. Armstrong shares that her favorite pick-me-up is ordering the T-Bird drink from Slurps Up and driving around listening to Taylor Swift

Last week, Walton and Armstrong gave their best advice about dating problems that listeners sent in via social media. Some of the situations included being in love with fictional characters, ideas for celebrating a ten-year wedding anniversary and what to do if someone repeatedly tells you “you’re too nice” to date.
