<3 our cycles are synced <3

If there's one thing you should know about us, it's that we've been emotionally menstruating since January 20, 2017 ... think about it. Anyway, the State of the Uniom last week really increased our flow so we started googling, "can excess blood flow mean increased weight loss? Does a year-long cycle mean you're pregnant? Are diva cups a tax write-off?!!!" And we discharged, er, discovered some info. The Blood Moon was literally mother nature's period and is causing two red visitors this month. Just in time for a winter weekend white-out, shrieky-chic! 

courage is all red on a white couch, AMIRIGHT LADIES?!

So we're dedicating a playlist to those special every 28 days, or in our case - 365 emotions a week. Break out your elastic waistband, padlock your pantry, and call your mom because it's time to let it ALL OUT. 

Best enjoyed with a bottle of red wine, half a xanny, and Stepmom playing on OWN.

Something to tell you ... about the 🌭 @ Home Depot

Something to tell you ... about the 🌭 @ Home Depot

OKAYYYYYYY. 

So it's been a weird summer. Like first it was hot, then it was cool, then it just got clammy and we started to hate/love every one/thing. And that really got us thinking, A LOT, like... is global warming actually really great for my dewy skin? Does Claire's still sell toe rings? Is Bachelor in Paradise the eHarmony of Gen Z? IDK IDK IDK. But one thing we did find out is that the hot dogs at Home Depot are worth at least three Michelin stars. And as you know, we're obsessed with ourselves, soooooo we mirrored our three-star spirit animals of the solstice, Este, Danielle and Alana of #HAIMtheBand, to try out the weiners next to a lot of wood, double yum!

PRO tip #1: UPGRADE YOUR stains TO COUTURE by coordinating YOUR looqs with THE condiments ON YOUR DOG. It's complementary and distracts others from your MULTIPLYING CHINS!

AND IF YOU'RE WONDERING... YEAH, WE DID GET THEM WITH KETCHUP.

Is this what 'normal bloggers' do?

It's important to note that when it comes to managing finances, power tools, or any musical talent, we have absolutely no idea what we're doing. So we decided to head to aisle seven and strum a drill (is it a drill? is it a gun? does Home Depot have a liquor license?????!) like it was Reading Fest 2017. Pairing our DeWalt-inspired boots with Haim Depot brand colored glasses, we were able to black out in fear and eventually check off that infamous bucket list item: climbing the stair stepper at Home Depot to absolute STARDOM (at least to the other customers and, more importantly, ourselves). It's a long road to celeb status, my friends. And it involves a lot of MSG.

PRO TIP #2: food comas are inevitable, so glitter your F*cking lids and head to the most sexily #lit aisle in the store (spoiler: it's the lightING aisle). AND contrary to popular belief, dark under eye circles are absolutely not the new milleNnial pink. Spooky!

After a brief disco nap in the lighting aisle, we moved onto matters of the stomach--massaging our digestive tracts via Whirlpool washers. It's basically the chiropractor of the appliance section, and, as you know, we're really really really invested in our health. We recommend staying atop the washer for either A) as long as it takes to get a six pack or B) as long as it takes for a store clerk to say "MA'AM PLEASE GET DOWN FROM THERE.

PRO TIP #3: Depot dogs are CA$H ONLY, which is r shriek when your only currency is MAXED-OUT plastic THINNER THAN THE SKIN ON YOUR FACE. Special thigh claps to Amanda for covering our $13 bill and YEAH, WE'RE FULLY AWARE that isn't a diet coke.

K, now hold your deviated septums while we drop some pickled-onion-breathing HAIM knowledge. 

  • Danielle toured with the likes of Casablancas after JENNY F'ING LEWIS discovered her at a jam sesh in Laurel Canyon right after she graduated FROM HIGH SCHOOL. Tell that to your Razor flip phone and L.E.I. denim! (The only person interested in me at that point was the homeless man drinking windshield washer fluid outside the Speedway gas station).  
  • Before Este mastered her signature tongue-out-bass-face, she graduated from UCLA with a degree in whatever TF enthomusicology is soooooooooo.... chic for her! 
  • Alana is the epitome of youth in this Shania cover and we actually can't watch it ever again. bai. #ThisIsTwentyNineButReallyDangerouslyCloseToThirty

PRO TIP #4: The Sod Palaceβ„’ is just as exclusive as the VIP tent at the Governor's Ball. It has everything: sod, tarps, and even a small step for you to accentuate your "good leg" in photos. 

If you can't get into the propane tank to really light up your looq, try metallic heels and a quick hair flip.

The most inspiring aspect about HAIM is that they DGAF about anybody except each other and Shania Twain, which is how we feel about ourselves versus everyone else in Home Depot (specifically the bathroom, like... can you PLZ GIVE US A MOMENT WE'RE BIZZY). And we all know that Shania Twain quit her job at Home Depot years ago.

Sorry, we're not here to sell anything except crippling self-doubt

PRO TIP #5: The wood section is your oyster and we are your CHIP GAINES. Here's a step-by-step on how to achieve this look yourself: 

  • Step 1: Stealthily carry two "Let's Do It" buckets to wood aisle

  • Step 2: Disregard the fact that you own underwear that says "Let's Do It" 

  • Step 3: Place buckets in front of the brightest wood, allowing your legs to appear tanned to a bronzed goddess HAIM level.

  • Step 4: Pose as if you are famous and are totally allowed to be doing this

  • Step 5: Stay aware of the fact that that Home Depot employee is swiftly walking toward your fur-filled cart.

  • Step 6: Wait, is this the same employee who told us to get off the washing machine earlier? 

  • Step 7: Hi, no, we're just looking, thanks! 


ALL THE CRAIC

Thanks to our resident pHOT-DOGtog, Christina Slaton, for ensuring that we definitely weren't the oddest looking people in the store.

 

Is That Blood or Chianti? (& Other Things to Step In @ a Music Festival)

Music, Looqs, FashimCaitlin VanderKlokComment

It's officially ~FeStIvAl SeAsOn~ -- and just as every BB color coordinates their Adidas Baselines with their Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, we're coordinating our festival looqs to compliment that weird red puddle you just pranced into by the will call tent.  Is that blood? Is it chianti? Settle down ladies, it's all underneath your soles - so take off your bra, windex your vagina, and feast your (th)eyes on the absurd shit you're about to ruin your Balenciaga cutout boots with while you traipse around what's sure to be a field full of the weirdest garbage this side of the Atlantic.

Looks like they had the corndog, yum! Babes, we've all stumbled into someone's lost cookies. And if you swear on your grandmother's Gucci you never have, we beg you to go TSA on your platform Superga sneakers and swab that shit because although YOU may not eat carbs, your soles beg to differ.

2. Melted Ice Cream

Cream colored mules made even creamier. YUM!

It's not officially summer until you've slipped in curdled dairy and slid into a stranger's bralette as a shirt. Look at it this way, at least the stifling heat saves you from any stiff-nip-induced injuries. 

3. BEER PUDDLE

Beer-or, Beer-or, on the ground, who's the drunkest all around?

Ahhhhhh, the sticky stench of sophomore year chugging warm Natty-Light on your friend's porch while eyeing which polo-wearing bro you'll french next. That was SO fun we never ever want to do it again. BLEST that the only victim this time is our on-sale flatform Tevas and that we've blocked 85% of our graduating class on FB.

Zika is the STD of summer 2k17 so ladies protect yourself ...  with a $29 pedicure that is easily rinsed off with a Grapefruit Sparkling Spindrift!

5. Somebody Else's CRATE & BARREL BLANKET

TBH brown undertones are in for summer. So, you're welcome!

Disclaimer: the lowest price "outdoor" blanket at C&B is a smooth $103. And that's double the price of your last-season are-these-still-chic-Birkenstocks that just left a soupy footprint on that newlywed couple's overpriced wedding gift. THEY REGISTERED FOR THAT!!!!!

6. A BABY

J/K, you're still on edibles.

7. ROGUE JEANS

Long live @buttsofpitchfork

Everyone is jumping on the denim trend, including Mother Nature. Chic for her!

8. BLOOD?

In case of emergency, snap my therapist.

By day three of the festival all lady cycles have synced, so pack exxxtra tampons and empathy for first timers and pray for a clean port-a-potty. JK THOSE DON'T EXIST EVEN AT FYRE FEST (too soon?).

9. GLUTEN FREE PIZZA

Celiacs unite to ruin pizza and your sky blue lamb leather mules, RUDE!

10. BAD LIGHTING

Pass the SPF 12m.

This is why sunglasses and hats are #MAJORπŸ”‘. We repeat SHADES AND TOPPERS. UV rays are our fourth best frenemy after broken escalators, aging and Sauvignon Blanc (in Caitlin's case).
