SO so excited to have you here!
New here? Okay. So HEY LADIES! was a series we started in the summer of 2013 as a cathartic release for the many many many HEY LADIES! emails we found ourselves on as we cleared our calendars to attend six (6) weddings each in one summer. The series, told in email form, was published on The Toast (we miss it, and we miss its loyal readers). But because we wanted to give readers of the book an idea of our roots, we were able to locate and upload a handful of installments here — the original, first-ever HEY LADIES! bachelorette party emails and our personal favorite: Halloween costume planning. We also found the dreaded BOOK CLUB EMAILS. You can read them here.
To our “Hey Ladies!” loyalists: Worry not. You’ll recognize your favorite ladies in the book, but it’s 350 emails full of brand new material.
Until then, keep visiting to keep up with live readings, events, yogalates classes, DIY vision boards, cute recipes for mason jar salads, etc. And of course, don’t forget to buy the book here (like we’d ever let you forget). Also if you buy the book, it TOTALLY makes up for that time we spotted you for that $6 Blue Moon a few summers ago so we’ll just call it even on Venmo 😉
If you want to share your real “Hey Ladies!” emails (we’ll never share them unless we ask for your permission ahead of time) or want the ladies to come to your local bookstore when the book comes out, email us at [email protected]
We answer your “weddiquette” questions on Instagram almost everyday, too. Follow us there!
As Barack Obama once said, “happiest girls are the prettiest girls.” And as Miranda Hobbs once said, “marriage ruins everything.”
The spirit in us recognizes the spirit in all of you,

Based on the column of the same name that appeared in The Toast, Hey Ladies! is a laugh-out-loud read that follows a fictitious group of eight 20-and-30-something female friends for one year of holidays, summer house rentals, dates, brunches, breakups, and, of course, the planning of a disastrous wedding. This instantly relatable story is told entirely through emails, texts, DMs, and every other form of communication known to man.
The women in the book are stand-ins for annoying friends that we all have. There’s Nicole, who’s always broke and tries to pay for things in Forever21 gift cards. There’s Katie, the self-important budding journalist, who thinks a retweet and a byline are the same thing. And there’s Jen, the DIY suburban bride-to-be. With a perfectly pitched sardonic tone, Hey Ladies! will have you cringing and laughing as you recognize your own friends, and even yourself.
