Everything You Never Knew About the Pyeong F. Chang Winter Olympics

On the road to gold(en dumplings).

As you know, we're HUGE sports fans so when the Olympic Committee for Overconsumption hand-picked *us* to give a behind-the-slopes looq of the winter games we knew this was a chance we couldn't turn down. Like the seventh free Polar PopAnd, apparently we weren't the ONLY ones on site at P. F. Chang's. So, it's time to triple-up your shades in lieu of ski goggles, switch your ringtone to Olympic fanfare and start saying brrrr every 2 1/2 mins because ... 

We're reporting live from Sochi!

 This is our Everest.

This is our Everest.

If there's one thing you should know about being an athlete it's that we have really lean upper arms. Like, really, really lean. Like infant size, but only full of muscles, arteries and whey protein. So the first unofficial event before opening ceremony is a really big feat for some - like teensy Alexa Scimeca - carb loading! (This got us thinking, are we actually really, really athletic??) The rule of Olympic thumbs is eat until one of the following happens: die, sleep for 17 hours or get to high five Shaun White at the Opening Ceremony. Hi, Shaun!

And yeah, we did get the first unofficial gold in the first unofficial event.

Day 1: The Opening Ceremony is actually like World Fashion Week. Of course Ralph designed the looq and of course we died for a fringe western glove and of course they were only made in athlete sample size (see infant arm above). So we made do with our eight carry-ons and threw on these patriotic rags. Shout-out to Nigeria for the chicest bejeweled turban looqs

Day 3: The ski lift was down, high shriek. So like peasants we were forced to take the stairs, until we found this secret America-only pop-up elevator. Go Team USA! 

 Practicing our freestyle skiing ... form.

Day 6: Insider theory is that all silverware in Pyeong F. Chang's was melted to create second place medals. Makes sense, doesn't it? Think about it.

Day 11: While downing mulled wine in the Team USA elevator, we discovered a real piece of Olympic History, instated at Lake Placid in 1988. Every event has an emergency exit so Alpine Skiing doesn't turn into Alpine Peeing. 

 The real Olympic Rings.

Day 13: The medal ceremonies are kind of like a marriage ceremony because you make your dad cry and your mother-in-law doesn't think your look is appropriate for national television. 

 Guess which one's Tonya and which one's Nancy??  ....makes sense, doesn't it?

Hiber-nation (A YSF Guide to Never Leaving Your Couch)

Looqs, obesity, TravelCaitlin VanderKlokComment

Hola, fudge lovers.

It has been a MINUTE. Please 'scooz our hibernation, but we needed to pile on the anti-aging masks and just let 2016 pass like our xmas-induced IBS. After spritzing a few gallons of rose water on our faces and adding Postmates on speed dial, we realized it was time to reemerge like we ~*pray*~ Richard Simmons will and share our top 5 tips on how to make those weird at-home fuzzy socks the top athleisure trend of 2017. So plz, be our guest to pause Netflix (PS YES WE'RE STILL WATCHING), mist some dry shampoo for the uber eats delivery guy and read on as the snow continues to drop (like our standards) in winter, mid-March. WTFFFF. 

 Waiting for our soul (post)mate.

1. DELIVERY IS MAJOR #🔑

This is actually like a really serious topic. After recently googling "at home pap smear" we had an epiphany that being an invalid can actually be pretty chic and ... more importantly, fiscally responsible!

Pro tip: For good measure, keep cookware out in the open to appear to others as if you're capable of sustaining a healthy(ish) life sans Pizza Hut in the case that something tragic happens, liiiike, your mom shows up for a surprise visit, or  Trump is elected president. It's as if to say, "oh my.... you caught me just as I was preparing my meals for the entire week... how embarrassing!" as you tuck away your $10 voucher for your next large pizza delivery. In this case, we're displaying our 10lb Saveur Magazine Blog Award, which was almost captured by airport security (shriek! but also thanks for the idea of using it as a weapon). 

is it hot in here?

2. WARMTH IS A STATE OF MIND

Layer bright colors and set up tropical plant moments, then sit in front of a fan while wearing elbow length suede gloves to fend away goosebumps. At any possible chance of taking in some vitamin D, immediately strategically pose your body to soak in as much ultraviolet light as possible. Bonus points if your back is hunched from binge watching Love in bed for 36 hours (which can simply be mistaken as a chic hunched couture looq #FatKendall). 

 Surround yourself with white walls to bring out the color of your windburned face.

3. MIRRORS ARE YOUR BIGGEST FRENEMY

Avoid them at all costs. Even look out for reflective surfaces, like the window you pass on your way to Taco Bell or that shrieky moment when you accidentally open your camera app to selfie mode...the horror! No one wants to see that, even your BFF on Facetime. The only exception for winter mirrors is right when you get out of the (only) shower (you'll take all week) and the mirror is fogged up. THEN it's ok to peek.

 Are you there God? It's me, obesity.

In extreme situations of seasonal affective disorder (aka S.A.D.ness 😞), dress in your Sunday best and invite your nearest and dearest over for a prayer vigil to the metabolism gods for a speedy and scarily-thin Spring. But also pray for temps above freezing and waking up the next am with a natural* tan.

*natural in the case that you're one shade darker than death

4. SHIT WILL GET WEIRD

Your couch will mold to your rolls, crumbs between the cushions will be snacks and if you have a pet you'll most likely marry them in a Scientology ceremony officiated by Leah Remini's fingernails. And that's really fucking bizarre. But that's what we here at YSF call "my-apt-is-small-AF-and-I-haven't-left-in-four-days" fever. At some point you'll begin to look halfway deranged (see above), which is actually really chic for you because Caitlin's basically wearing rapist sunglasses and can still kinda pass as a sane person.

5. #TBT IS THE NEW BMI

So the last time you went to a social event was 4 months ago.... but Instagram doesn't need to know! Keep constant use of #tbt (even on days that don't begin with T) to stay current and "hip" and "fun," when really you just got married to your dog by Leah Remini's fingernails. Shhhhhh.

In search of the lightest lunch, but most full feeling we could stomach - half of YSF and all of YSS hopped in an air uberXXL pool to Tokyo for a quick snack with our girlfriends. So, let your guts lead the way and eat with your 👀  below - like we did at Shibuya crossing
