When did you guys notice like oh I think at some point we all might be working for Sierra? I remember the first moment 'cause association I started a blog channel final which has been pretty neat for me. The first time I was like wait a second was it was I just graduated and I was like okay. I'm GONNA buy myself. PS Four. Because I want to be as Schuyler Kyle came over and I guess we've logged it. I guess we've lost a lot of things but Schuyler block block. I guess we bond so kyle comes over. And I'm like dude I bought a PS four. And he's like Oh. I know I saw your dog and I was like what it was like. In that moment I realized like Oh this is going to be a thing and that was kind of strange. I'm still it's it's funny funny. How I still kinda like pretender? Line of like series. The Queen Thrive my queen. And I'm just GONNA I'M GONNA be back here like tapping on the keyboard like okay. Hey keep doing your thing. And it's like scary to consider that like I'm on this journey with you and you know at the by like a nice suit for the streams and good Lord and I know it was funny I distinctly remember. It was when you guys were living in one of your old departments we came over and you guys somehow like a hangar was brought up in college like oh I know like Syrah prefers like the velvet hangers but Stephen only likes the plastic. How'd you know this information about our friends? This is like it was about twenty questions just us. That's not like weird we're like I know you're hanger preference and it's been it's been very interesting series. Bless her heart. She really loves getting out there. She loves people watching her. That's her uncomfortable spot This is so far from where I am comfortable. It's been really kind of interesting to see like where I've started wearing now. My parents say that is like the best things here did for me was kind of getting me out of my little. Shell my way I would be sitting my windowless office. Just Click clack clack and then now I have a microphone in my hands up here. So that's been really.

"Like a team member like all its opener hume's compiled cats like you're not paying the payroll and so like what is it been from your perspective. Yeah so I met them back to two thousand fifteen And you had already star town so it was. It was able to see you progress even just from there but but also get to know both of you guys just by watching the videos and then we just all just become friends. And I've been just so supportive going through this whole thing just in. I'm there ear every video like watching commenting and just very sleep but you're also kind of helping yourself up not fine. Yeah I have been so supportive I. I'm very proud of these three people. You're doing great. You're doing no but I mean even when we were before today before the show started. We were setting up in the hallway and one of the employees here at the center was talking to us and and Stephen Goes. Yeah and then you know Kyle's wife is also the Co host and then this is Sierra's husband and the guy goes. Oh so it's all in the family here. Yeah it really really is. It's true it's so cool. I mean Kyle Stephen was Kyle's best man we were both each other's maid of honor. We're all genuinely like the best of friends and so it's so cool and surreal that we all get like do this together. We're back station. The boys gave us like little cute commemorative necklaces. And I was like on the last time we were all backseat together. was like our wedding. Like how our wedding. Well our wedding but it was. It's very clear not conspiracy theory. Gosh well well uneven so bigger picture scholars involvement. So you know Skyler help zero on the back end guys would pop in for some of your videos every now and then and then the podcast hasn't been really cool to see Schuyler so front and center and just you know obviously the people up Skyler.

My my bachelor's degree working my little corporate desk job making out to be a lot less than it is compared to your grocers. Engineering's brings agree. That's definitely I think that's definitely we. It may not be as like glamorous on the outside is my job but I think when we he got married it was very much like Sierra. has her own little thing and Steven Steven isn't it. That's how it was. I mean say you're like little title desk job to drink like as Jill. You're like a fun Sarda. Yeah so but when this all started it was it was a hobby. Keeping your busy and it was really. It was where we are today is never what I would have imagined. Any of this led to you so very proud for those who don't know sears nominated for extreme this.

I wouldn't even see social media but like messaging APPs is remember. You're an Nintendo. Ds Chat Chat. You'd like my cousins are here. We would like be at my grandma's house like sitting in the same room just like drawing things on chat and then like anyone else yes recently. I saw a tweet and it was like wow. I've never related more. It was like when you're twelve years old really so you just black out. The screen on your was a shared experience. I feel like I always see those things I thought. Wow I saw my grandma. I see those things on the Internet but I feel like communal childhood. How weird that we were all like blacking out the screens on Nintendo ds when we were angsty? Oh my gosh. So after the neo pets and the club penguin and the Pinto Chai We. What was your first like social media so I think I might have had a my space base for a minute but I wasn't very into it? You're into it. I saw when I was thirteen. No Yeah I'm thirteen. I made my space when when my parents had explicitly told me I was not allowed to have my space but I was at my friend. Hannah's house thank you for getting me in trouble with my my space Hannah and she was like we should make you a my space okay. So let's do it so I made this fake email. 'cause I knew that my parents would see the mice based email my email then about a week later my mom. I didn't log out of my email on the family computer. And she saw it and she sent an email to my like secret email address. It was like you must think you're so cool hiding from your parents making a my space. Why Making worry sound like Mother Gospel? That's it was a nice soccer or coach. Shout coach Laurie. But at my at the time I remember sitting in my bedroom reading that email. Oh my gosh my life is over. My life is Over so my parents call me into the room. They're like you know we're disappointed in you for having a my space by did you WANNA have one. And I explained it to them. And they're like okay. You can keep your my space under are these parameters that give me some rules like they got to have my password one of the parameters with my dad was like you have to let me print out your my space page and at at the time I was like that's weird okay. Sure they want to print out like my space is super cool and I had completely forgotten about this into we. Were planning this podcast. And my dad's sent me the printout of my my space. Do we want to pull it up. So I'm going to stand up here so that I can point it out to you. It's like I'm doing Ted Talk. Welcome to my Ted talk about space space. So that photo is me and my friend Hannah A- As you can see the essence Sierra is a dollar sign because I was really cool. Was this pre cash. Oh this this was cash. Yeah she says it was two thousand nine so this was like me. Thirteen year old getting ready to go to the school dance. Like I'm in Love Barbara. You know you guys Thirteen and then my bio here. The only thing I blacked out some names of people I listened to my friends who I didn't WanNA messaging get permission for taught my two best friends at the time. I'm still pretty close with Kendall and Hannah. Hannah's here so I left their names in there and I'm going to read you my first ever my space bio so it says and just see you know it is incredibly hard for me to do so there you go. Hey I'm Sierra. I live in southern southern Kelly. I'm in seventh grade. I'm smart but sometimes I say the stupidest things still true. I'm a really nice person but sometimes I need to think before. I speak also still at least self-aware if you're nice to me and don't talk bad about people than I will love you if if I like you you'll know it and if I don't then there's a reason don't feel special if you can make me laugh because I laugh at everything. I have the best friends in the world. I love my friends so much less their names and of course my two main girlies Kendall and Hannah and then I bliss out what. I'm sure I at the time thought such unique things that we do which are so incredibly basic and the fact that I thought these were like unique to us is ridiculous ridiculous. I say things like we never fight. We laugh toby cry. We tell each other everything we spent hours just laying in the grass eating big league chew do we are all totally different but we think the same we live in the moment we get each other through anything everything we take way too many pictures and make too many bracelets visco girl. We have no secrets. So if you're going to tell one of us something you might as well all I'll tell you because we will tell each other anyway. I am so glad we were not nightmare. We paint random things. We play plastic instruments. We eat strawberries sleep elected. We play plastic instruments. I I feel like that's still very you. We went to Mexico with the boys Scottish. Not The story go for it go for it. You don't know what story I'm GonNa tell I was just GonNa say that Sierra got we all were like getting souvenirs I think I got like some seashells. Whatever Sierra got a hot pink plastic accordion and and she proceeded to play it for the entire trip the entire way home and then it was in her filming backdrop as like an aesthetically pleasing thing for like the first two? Here's channel. I remember coming on board and be like. Hey so I haven't note about your strong plastic accordion. Never unlike the pink plastic accordion in the backdrop. Back then yes thank you see. They're just being nice I mean it's probably true here. You have to read the rest you the heat strawberry strawberry. We danced in the pouring rain. We get together and we go insane. You don't know she doesn't doesn't know role. I have no idea what that means to spend some dumb inside jail. What does it mean when we get together we go and say? I'm a little scared for the neighborhood. Safety you out there with your plastic instruments is going insane. Big League chew and strawberries. We've been through drama. which is funny because I said we never fight so I don't know what drama we've been through drama? Breakup tears laughs and wrestling matches and they just make us closer and here or is my favorite part of the whole thing at the bottom. It says who I'd like to me I at thirteen years old sitting there and Hannah's bedroom wrote a guy actually chilly worth my time..

And he's like they're about to crown the first ever like America's superstar whatever and I just didn't really care pat it. I feel like repulsed. Drag race is so superior in every category but I do feel like they're starting to make a lot of them like it's all stars all the time I see I just got into Schuyler Schuyler and I I'm a pusher she push your Katie. I'm a pusher Schuyler always tries to get me into into her shows and I'm usually kind of like okay. I'll put it on my watch list. Sure but he'll eat literally like two days ago. You're sitting at lunch and I was telling Sierra about any any of you guys watch the good place. I was telling her I was like I feel like you would love it like Kristen Bell Ted Danson and I was telling her about like some of the funny ah caricatures and she just was like glazed over and I was like. I'm just GONNA stop talking. I know you're never going to watch. Russia over. Commend watched touched repulsed drag race on your recommendation. I know the next one.

We're going to be extra careful not to say his name name on it coming and I was like no we've been we've been saying in a lot of the podcast and then just like cutting it out. So yeah. Yeah if you guys here knew you in the loop. This is a safe space. Assuming it's we're all friends here okay. So the topic. The topic of today's podcast is kind of a walk. Through of what where we were at the beginning of our experience on social media to now today here with you guys a million subscribers we kind of grew up on like the very beginning of people who grew up online like my little brother is here he seventeen he had had instagram and he was like ten. Yeah we didn't my little sister of it's it's these people who grow up in a like back. When we were young it was kind of like the wild wild west of like we were reviewing some of our old posts which will get into later but they were just kind of crazy of like? I can't believe that my friends were posting that on my wall when I was thirteen us and so I feel like it's been it's been really cool and really interesting to be in this kind of weird middle generation where we didn't grow up with it kind of will and we had it before now when kids go on instagram or facebook like their parents parents are on their parents. Were not on the Internet and I definitely would not oppose some of the things I posted if my parents were on the Internet and I feel like before facebook this book and Instagram and twitter and all those things we did get to have like club Penguin Neo pets neo pets girl. I was not a clip. I I recently was able to find the password and username to my neo. Pets account and I had a field day. I was playing Merca Chase happy I was going on some very quest. It was.

"Much everything. Great at Traderjoes like I'm just like going to a trader later Joe Fan of all time but they have some seasonings that are innovative. SMA civically they have an everything but the bagel seasoning which is literally early my favorite thing in the world. So so what is it so it was like everything Bagel topics like poppy seeds and salt and sesame seeds and whatever. It is just a little shaker. Sure but it's nice because if you are a really big everything Bagel fan you can have an everything bagel cream cheese and then put it on top and makes extra crunchy. Or if you like our post-meeting oh smeeting from starbucks and you only have like only plane bagels. You can put it on top and it's great so kyle put-down Avocado Toast. It's great unlike everything. So so big fan okay. They also have like onion salt. That's really delicious. They gotta WanNa frigging life. Hawks onion saul right fantastic. They have garlic solve the mushroom one. Really good they have a lot of their their seasonings. Dot Com. Okay my last one. No one could have seen in this coming white claw. Here's the thing. Okay so white clot is great for you just to drink on your own. Yeah right IT I. I learned last night during Halloween. It's a fantastic thing for like beer pong or rage cage. Because it's not as heavy you you can. If you're playing like we we're going to play rage cage and I was like okay. I'm GONNA do half the table with just soda water for the people who aren't drinking and then the other half the table do beer and then someone else. Can you do. White cloth for mine. Oh Mine wikileaks remind. I'm like so everyone wants white cloth who's drinking and everyone's like yeah. I'm like cool easy so we'd have the table white claw. Have the table table Soda Water. That is so smart. I mean I. I've never tried right claw. Yep I've tried truly but just through water in general like that just make so much more percents. Oh yeah wow it was great game changer. So that's my last one and there ain't no laws. I like that you're ending your last one on your favorite product. I'm also GONNA and and finally last product so this is combined a but they like go together. Okay so I had this debate with Carlene Tony recently. I've had it with many many people many times in my life by far the best Mason Jars are from hobby lobby. Jesse you're about this first of all literally like half half the days of the week there forty percent off so they're already so inexpensive and then also like you can get them for forty percent off also they have gold leads which I just find much more visually appealing. Also they don't have any labelling on them so most mason jars have like ball Mason Jar. We'll have like flowers or whatever but if you're sticking checking labels on it you don't want like a bunch of other words and dimensions and textures and they're like the perfect size are bigger than regular mason jars. So they can like hold stuff off but they aren't like gigantic right so bake fan and then in tandem with that probably my most used product in life. Yeah Your label maker the Laker. Doing this is called the diamond label maker. I am such a huge fan. It's like the perfect. It's super inexpensive. It's like super reliable. It's super durable like it's we have jars that we've stuck it onto. That have lasted three years. Like he doesn't like fall off and it's like really Q- read like a little black label on it has like little pressed or like raised white leg. It's just it's just so great so if you're someone like me and you like hey just a ton of packaging super inexpensive super wonderful and you can use it for literally everything like even like our cat treats we just have mason jar that says like catch rates and it's ice because then like also from a more sustainable standpoint like we try and buy all of our like flour and sugar and stuff at sprouts that that way we can buy it in bulk and then you just put it in the Mason Jar that we first of all a small space. You don't have to have these like big bags of flour and like whatever else trail trail mix but then also like you're not getting the unnecessary packaging rhymes with it. So that's my last one. That's so nice. Well I we were planning on doing advice today but we're running a little bit late so I'm sorry we're going to skip advice again. I'm so sorry but next week. I promise we will have advice so I hope you guys enjoyed this. podcast links are hopefully in the description links in the description they are. They're they're Lincoln.

"Five. This is like one hundred has for like twenty bucks. I can totally totally attest to this. You're the one who recommended it to like what I got pregnant doing. in they're they're super nice because I think the like the key with that I think two things one that it syncs up to the APP in the APP tells you exactly like how what is I've seen I've seen when I when I was like trying trying to conceive there are people who take test strips and like tape them into a ball. I've seen that too but then testers get darker and darker the longer that they go for. We're in the also use. Have like a bunch of like peace strips like tape down like you said it's not accurate because the the strip is not valid after three minutes. Yeah and so oh and also I just feel like yes. I feel like it being tied to the APP in the APP telling you exactly what percentage you are helpful. I feel like a lot of times if you're like trying to be really hopefully you're like oh that looks really dark but in reality. It's still lighter than the other line and you're just like a point six or whatever And then the second thing is that. They're really inexpensive but they use the same technology. Whatever the other test you so you don't feel like you only are taking taking them when you could be ovulating right because that's the thing like when I got pregnant pregnant I can? Have you heard that song. The like to align. Just look pregnant we are you in kyle going to do a baby Mama dance okay. So that sounds so up. Kyle's alley so we do it a lot at home but like not recorded coordinate. Embarrassing can we maybe for the live. Show either. Maybe don't make you guys. Do it live. Because that's a lot of pressure but could we record you guys doing the baby Mama dance and play because my parents are insisting that I play my first youtube video at the live show because it's private five and they're like you have to play the show so I will play my first video if you make a baby mama dance hard. Maybe I might. I might be more inclined to just do a then record it because I feel like I don't necessarily want to have that recorded because I feel like that would be a really good to like for Kyle posted on facebook or something. Yeah 'cause I feel like it's like so crazy then you have to do it. Well we dance to it all the time. So it's like we're already like for like already know all the words wait. Kyle's like variant to dance. So what you guys do it at the live show. Maybe are packets for the live. Show in the description. Then you may or may not get to see Schuyler kyle the baby Mama Dance. Also the thing is that I used because everyone knows I used to do technical Michael Theater so I used to work at the venue where we're doing the live show for like two years so a lot of people who are going to be working the event or like my my old co workers so I think it's so if I'm like hey guys so like just coordinating like these are the lighting levels. We want this is the during during my baby mama jury so we'll see maybe how to come find out if you don't do do it during the show okay. We'll you do it at least at the reception Shar Chettiar so 'cause I could sing it on Karaoke. You know I should not seeing the dance and then you guys could do it. Kyle will a million percent do it park. That's very up. Kyle's alley perfect. Also I've had to tell him Mike Twenty Times like the live show is about you because he was telling me he was like so. If you want like I can walk out on stage before you guys and then I could do like an icebreaker and I was like what's the queue. Tell me your icebreaker. And he was like well. I my my go-to icebreaker. Is that a polar bear comes out on on the ice and then breaks. It told Someone Weird Dad joke and I was like why would you come out before us. Intel and Dad. But let's okay very. He'll be dancing on the reception. Her faked yes. But just yeah okay over another one. Oh okay so this was not my list by. I just swapping it for another thing so in the same soup vein lately. Fair is a broth that they sell like sprouts and whole foods whatever that is called not chicken broth and is game changing like guys if I can convince you to get one thing if you're into soups and you're like vegetarian or Vegan. Not Chicken Broth is amazing. Is it better than just because I just use vegetable Chaba broke. Because that's what I've used for forever but not chicken broth like gives that like savory salty like thicker good food thing that comes with broths because I feel like sometimes vegetable broth like a taste like vegetables and then it's like kind of watery comparatively if you actually were take a beef broth author whenever not chicken broth game changing okay. I'M GONNA have to make that chowder. I really like all the time in the fossil. Try It with not chicken. Yeah well I'll bring you a not chicken broth over from me okay. My next thing is my sit stand desk and I've only had this for like a wheat. Yes this is a new. It's a new thing so whereas all the other things on this list are like tried and true. I've had them forever. This breaking desk is making taking my life first of all. Just sit stand desks at all like I love. 'cause I some days I'm on my feet all day filming and I just want to sit down and some days if I'm like we're sitting down at the podcast right now after this last thing I want to do is go. Sit In my chair so I raise it up and I stretch out my back Lou. My a little tight being and it's just my this is so good I love it. Love it it's really cute watching you be like Ooh like raises up and you get excited. I've only the last thing I ever want to do is stand especially pregnant so you told me you you sent me a text retold me or whatever whatever that. You're getting like standing desks and I didn't understand your just getting. I thought you meant like you were getting one for like all those and carly and I was like. Oh God like she was GonNa to spend all this money and I'm Gonna I'm gonNA feel real bad. I'm glad I didn't get US Sandusky then Okay my next thing I know Oh serious going to laugh at this but I feel like it's my civic duty to tell everyone Myers is the superior home spray away in especially if you stock right now. They have an apple. CIDER sent a literally the greatest thing we why would I make fun of you for that. I feel like you don't like so you don't think like you don't like have like a favorite cleaner like that wouldn't be on your list of like. Wow Meyers. Go my favourite house cleaner. Is My husband. Recommend getting one. It makes cleaning the house so much easier easier. Not your husband your high recommend hiring Stephen Your of your house clean your house. I feel like Myers is the best us I've tried like all of the natural like housecleaners like I've tried seven generation an honest and all the things I just feel like Myers is superior and they have the best sense like in In Christmas time what's it called. They have like a a fern. One smells kind of like a Christmas tree but the Nice thing about their census Incirlik Natural. It's kind of the same thing as my cinnamon. Whisk from rarely are overpower. It's not like Gross Apple Cider or just genuinely smells like you you used your apple dealer. And they're like apples the S.. So now I want to try because his it actually works. which is the big thing with natural cleaners? I feel like some natural cleaners are like like water in essential. Oil like whatever But it's just ten on ten Myers became my next thing and I think I got you on board at this train. I'm not sure who the benefit Gimme brow. Brow Jell O.. My Gosh it. So here's the thing. I didn't know that you were supposed to fill in your eyebrows until hill I was like eighteen and Schuyler showed me how to fill it in with eye shadow would fill in our brows with shadow sparkly. Then I was like okay. Okay I'm just going to get a brow pencil and I got the dossier Beverly Hills Brow Pencil. Yeah but I am not some like. I don't do heavy makeup so if I pencil in my brow and sharp and like like really exact. It doesn't look right. Yes the rest of my makeup is as heavy this Brow Gel it just makes my brows look thicker and fuller without making them really structured. So if you're someone who wants a structured brow and you don't like your natural brow shape this isn't the product for you. Yeah but if you just want an and it's so easy to do it's just like boom boom boom boom boom boom whereas I used to spend like fifteen minutes on my eyebrows alone house like fifteen seconds. The only thing I do differently as I do use a little pot. The house like Jalen it so fill in like this middle part and then also my tales because my hair naturally is like especially like my eyelashes and my eyebrow harasses like white blonde right so I do feel like I need a little more structure like just when it comes to like my tails and stuff and then you use that the technical my glasses off so those of you on Youtube can see. I have no no makeup on my face right now. I have naturally relatively dark browse. Yeah so I just want them a little bit fuller. I don't necessarily need to like fill fill them in. So it's a Soga re tweet retrieve my next one is kind of like brought. You can use any brand you want you can use whatever crystal in salt lamps are game changing. Why so for so many reasons one one? They're really cute. They are like like decor thing. Also like the perfect amount of lighting. For if you want like a like cozier your vibe like I feel like they like cozy everything up. I feel like that'd be a good bedside lamp yet because all the time before bed Stevens like oh it's too bright and like while I'm reading like I want a little bit of light. Yes a chameleon percent and they like depending on who you are what you believe. There are some like quote unquote like health benefits to having them mm-hmm. I won't talk about any of that because I feel like it's all like whatever But a big thing too is like when I was doing technical theater the theater would be really dark and and then I would want like just a little bit of work light by like a hard like desk lamp here and so it was like the perfect glow also. I feel like if it glows kind of like romantic. Like I do. Feel like if you're using is like a bedside light. It's like a good down by how now so they back when I was in like high school middle school they Only had like pink Himalayan salt lamps but now they make alkaline salt lamps or crystal lamps which are white which is just like even better even you better. So that's my next thing. Okay I think I only have. I have three left up. Okay so the next one is is the dry bar charcoal scalps group. So let me. I took a photo of the label. Again it's called on the rocks. Charcoal Scouts grow it..

Oh I can't believe I didn't put that on my list. I I feel like beyond his been like the biggest game changer in my leg. Vegetarian Vegan journey. Because the I like both both kyle and I love cooking so much in so many recipes call for ground beef and like we try and eat mostly vegetables in replacement Smith of beef. Like if ever there's a time where like a recipe calls for me and like we can substitute in like potatoes or like Broccoli or whatever more than like that's great because that's like a little more nutritious nutritious than beyond beef but for just like tacos for meatballs for literally really everything beyond belief is perfect and also they like just reformulated their recipe a couple months ago and I feel like it's incredible like just so good. I made beyond beef Tacos last night and we have some people for Halloween. Stephen made beef and I made beyond beef. Yeah and a lot of people were trying both and said the beyond beef tasted better than the real beef and this is non vegetarians. That's so awesome. I just love it and I think like there are a lot of like alternatives Out there for me But beyond vicious that the best. It's so good best a great Okay since you did food I will also do food nutritional freaking yeast some old. What do you call it new coach? I call it. Newt Oh my gosh it's so good Schuyler introduced it to me and I use it in everything so basically nutritional yeast is Vegan but it makes everything cheesy and creamy. So I'll do you like green beans with some garlic and then nutritional yeast and mix it together in the walk like in the waters. It's simmering yeah and it makes these like it it tastes like cheesy green green beans. Yeah but there's no cheese and it's like good for you. I put it on popcorn. I put it on big potatoes like anything you can imagine. nutritionally nutritionally Soga area. In that same vein I will say Tofu Sour Cream. It is the only Vegan sour cream that is good. I will say I've literally like I use it when I was a vegetarian because I liked it so much like when I wasn't out searching because I feel like sour cream and cream cheese are like the two really hard things to get good because most companies make them with like almond mill girl like coconut milk and like I don't really want like like all men taste in my like baked potato right but to- foodie sour cream is the bomb. I'll have to try it. It's literally it's like. We always have at least two containers in our fridge. 'cause we go through it so fast Like I feel like for a long time. I would just avoid recipes that had a ton of sour cream menam because I like didn't really wanna eat dairy but also like just knew the all. The sour cream sucked right like like vegetarian. Beef stroganoff or or like anything that was like super sour cream heavy but I discovered this a long time ago and I am just into where do you got it. You can get at sprouts a whole foods. Any of those like. I'll have to try it ten tenth. That sounds Fan. They don't have it at target yet. which is like roll sad? It'd be there eventually Italy. So so my next thing is my case defy case okay. So case defies a company that they sponsored me. Maybe almost a year ago and I hadn't tried and one of the cases before so I was like okay. Can you guys send me some. And I literally before I even agreed to that sponsorship us on my phone like exclusively took off the expensive case I had bought and I was so good then. They sent me a pokemon case. They did which I was obsessed with. Then they sent me another one and then they sent me this one which is so clear so it shows the purple on my new phone but that has the flowers and it has like it's super protective but you know like author box phone cases that are like super protective active like thick abby. This is still super thin and it has a lip on the front so when you drop it it's less likely to shatter the screen. So it's literally fantastic and like it doesn't make my phone feel bulky. That's another one of those companies that I mean. Have you done a sponsorship with them since you did one. Yeah no free advertising for me because it is simply focuses that I'm like it's so good of course I'm going to come out and that's another thing where like I feel like sometimes I don't know I mean obviously there's like Hashtag at or Shag sponsored on things birther supposed to be legally if you're actually sponsored by them but I feel like a lot of times people see like even before I was working with you. I would see like girls like boxing makeup or boxing. Whatever no thing like oh they're sponsored by them but the reality is half the time it's it's just like free product and there's no obligation to post about it and look you like it and so that's the thing is the company you genuinely love? Oh every time I get a package from them. I'm so excited when I got my new phone Stephen was like. Oh we should like buy you a case. And I'm like let me just like email case defy and if they say no then I'll just by myself a new case if I saw. Aw Cute what will I do for my next one. Okay my next one. This is probably one of the things I get the most questions about on instagram. which is really funny? Because it's very niche. An apple peeler so I have a fantastic prepare but guy. I got this this apple peeler that I have. Maybe when I was like twelve from my now mother-in-law like because her and I would like Apple Pie together because we've been family friends for forever in like sticks to the table and the new. Poke your apple into it and like you rotate and it peels it. In course it. It's game changing. I I was so my mom. Got One of those from like a pampered chef party when I was six and we call it. The apple peeler core slicer and so like my favorite thing was eating spiraled US apples. Everyone's favorite things I feel like one of my go-to things is baked Apple Pie. Baked Apple Pie at your house and my parents Alison everyone's houses before and so like the guys will always come over and like e other shavings making the Pied. It's I feel like I. It's so great for apple pies but also also just so great for life like I'm so excited to use it for like my baby and like just be able to have like easy clean and I'm one hundred percent certain that apple's taste better when they're like in the little spiral then if you bite into an apple it's fantastic literally game changing and I found and want 'cause I didn't know that those were like a big thing. Yeah and then for Christmas like two years ago maybe three years ago my mom found one that was at crate and barrel and so she I gave it to me for Christmas and I was like see. I don't think they're that big of a thing. They're pretty niche. 'cause I literally will get like fifty deums. AM people being like. What is this magic? They're so good so lincoln description. Get Yourself Apple Peeler. They're like ten or fifteen bucks on Amazon. Unlike Soga so great ten Adam okay so my next one is from Kylie cosmetics. The clo- money loop shade. It's from the cocoa line. which was like the collaboration? She did with I think it was closely. Yeah and it's in like Of Gold kind of like reflective case. And it's their matt liquid lipstick in the Shade Colo- money and it is literally league the perfect nude shade. It's Matt and it lasts for a while but you know how sometimes when you put on like a twenty four hour color. It's so sticky that it gets like blotchy so this one will like have a nice even fade over time. You know even if like let's put it on the morning and you don't rea- pile day at like two two. PM You're not going to be blotchy it's just GonNa be a little bit more faded. Oh that's game changing. It's so you like any of the other Kylie lip kit. That's I love the Kylie lift kits and I didn't like get on the hype train right away when I was Just as celebrity makeup line. I don't use lip liner so I just get the singles singles. Yeah and they are my absolute favorite color to try them does in the Meat Matt Hughes are the only two US and I've quite a few shades of the Kylie ones. That's wild yeah I've never. I've just never tried. Maybe I'll get you some for our give to Shane. Here's some Clo- many uh-huh okay. I'll do my last makeup Oga what you have a couple more silvery other things a bunch of other things as living. Oh crap I no thanks Okay there is a powder called air spun powder that I have used for so long you buy it on Amazon and it's like a translucent setting powder I just felt like Patrick Star Post about it a I think a lot of like og beauty gurus would ease it's inexpensive insist translucent setting powder but I have gotten so many people on the train because it's literally like ten dollars on Amazon and will last you like a year. I'll have to try that. It's let's show great elegance. It's just it's just perfect. See 'cause I use the slick clinic powder. Yeah that's I think really good if I'm I'm just using that on my bare face instead of but when I use it if I'm doing like a foundation day yeah I feel like it's almost makes my make my foundation. We're streaky. Yes I feel like maybe if I did it a loose powder when I do foundation it would look set it more like the game. Changing the I've been doing since we went to live was they gave us those brushes that you've had forever so I use the flat one so instead of using like a powder brush I use like the the big packer one and we'll just put it on and then like brush off off as kind of like fake baking. But it's nice because I feel like a lot of translucent powders are so heavy that I feel like my face isn't look like Shami or like radiant anymore anymore but it's just truly translucent. It just makes it like I never have my makeup like wipe off all my gosh. It's great okay so cheap and I last forever. I'm GonNa send me a link but they'll be Lincoln kind of smells a little bit. Grandma I eat. That's the only thing which I like. I like like Floral Clean San Zan. You're good with it but that's the only thing. Okay so my next one is I only recently figured out. I have like the world's dry skin like I. I always assumed oh like I just have like combination skin. Whatever 'cause I'm like Oh because like I get oil he sometimes? I don't get oily. Just get some acne. Yeah but I don't get like like oil. I have very dry patchy skin and just using a moisturizer is not enough for me interest but all of the face masks that I used to do. We're like mud masks because I didn't know that's meant for oily skin. Yeah so if you use a mask or appeal dry skin it it just makes it more flaky. 'cause it's drying out the scare which is great for someone with oily skin. So I found this is from the brand. Cyprus it's called the glow. Oh filter refining enzyme mask. It's meant to like locking moisturizer and make your skin more globally. And so I use it once a week and it's it feels kind of gooey and here's the thing you don't get the satisfaction that you get from like appeal mask or like a mud mask because those you get the satisfaction in a feeling at Hardin or feeling like peeling it off this is just like a wet Goo that you put on your face for fifteen minutes and then wipe off. Yeah but the end result is so good. I'm obsessed with this..

"And free tight from Lululemon which are are like ninety dollars they have like a because that's the thing I liked the power hold. Yeah but they're more cottigny and don't have a pocket so they're great for the gym But just for like running errands. They're like very high compression. And so the salar solid pure lex leggings have a pocket on the side. Like a nice little yeah angled pockets. I can put my phone credit card. Whatever they're like high waisted but they're not like compression so they're ju- but they're still supportive so supporting but not compressing can like breath and relax a little bit more an awesome? The material is more like Lycra SPANDEX. which which is what I liked? So much about the Lululemon fast and free tight FEM accent except these are literally the perfect dupe. And they're so much cheaper and I just absolutely salute them. So that's so awesome. That's a really cool thing. It's obvious to me because like I know you as a friend but but also something I feel like a lot of people don't know because they just want you to do like all sorts of sponsorships. You are really really selective with who you partner with so if you partner partner with someone that's a genuinely your favorite version of that that's like I will not partner with a brand if I am not already obsessed with that product or if they if it's a brand I haven't heard of all say like send me the product I'll try it and then if I love it I'm like yeah cool. I'm in I'm like I'm not just going to get an email email seed the price and then be like cool. I'm in I have to love the product which I feel like is a good thing to know because I feel like a lot of people would just assume like. Oh yeah like. She's he's a fat boy ambassador. Bowling no fabrics is like your favorite. I can't tell you how many people I know in real life who will be like. Okay so I know you're sponsored by fabrics but like Loki. He like like what are they actually had and I'm like they are literally the best like don't even use my coupon code. If you don't need to just the best just just go go Okay let me see. I think next they'll do a home thing so I'll do. This is my only like seasonal thing and it's really small but at like sprouts and I'm sure other like natural grocery stores stores. They sell cinnamon whisks. But you can use airfresheners in your car and I just feel like it's a game changing. What's what's a cinnamon wis.? So it's like a little looks like probably this big. It has a little like Dongola so you can hang it from your window like how you hang like a like a air freshener. But it's like just cinnamon sticks tied together and I recently realized they also have like cinnamon. Orange centered ones. But it's so nice because I've tried. AIRFRESHENERS are like fall. Sent it or seasonally. scented wanted and they just smell like really artificial. Sometimes you get into your car like Oh it's like candy canes ever but I feel like this. This is the perfect thing because in fall I want everything to feel like cozy and not Tom. No but it's I don't know and just perfect since you did a sent one. I also have a one hit me anything in the Senate flannel from both in bodyworks. You have been obsessed with so my thing for the longest time with sparkling icicle. Yeah which was only available in Christmas time so I would stock up on and literally diffuse it all year. This fall I will. I just walked in and the associated. who was there was just like super helpful? You know sometimes you can tell people like really WanNa find your good set and then sometimes you feel like you're bothering them. I don't think I've ever shopped bath and body works. I I don't know so like sometimes if you're like oh I'm looking for this. They'll be like Oh yeah here. It is and sometimes they'll be like Oh my God let me help you. Yeah and it was really empty on a Wednesday so this this girl was like okay. Describe to me your favorite sat like describe to me what you love so much about sparkling icicles and I was like I like clean sense. I like maybe a little hint of floral but I don't WanNa floral set the like. I almost like men sense better. Yeah so I had smelled chevy smell like eight candles and I smelled this flannel one and I was like oh my gosh. You're like this is I have now. Have Room sprays candles plug INS everything flannel scented to all the time. I love it because it's so autumnal smelling and it's like very very cozy and it's nice because I feel like forever I associated with sparkling icicle said. Yeah but now. I'm starting to shift into associated with this event because they feel like I walk in. I'm like oh it's so cozy in the all especially because it's been cold in the mornings. I like my sweater. I'M GONNA drink like hot tea. Candlelit could just going to be great also for the audio listeners. Out There Schuyler cute yellow chunky sweater. And I'm in a Green tie-dyed Jonas Brothers t-shirt that I got it. There concert was wearing like a red sweater and had like a red hair scarfing of and then I was like I feel like I'm just really diving into this Christmas thing too much tone it down down into a last minute. It's very cute though. Thank you just for me Okay my next thing ago so kind of speaking speaking of car things I there is a blogger named almost makes perfect first of all. I'm just obsessed with her. I think she's like the cutest person ever in her son's cute and families cute and everything but she makes a magnet for your car that says baby on board and they sell it like I know they saw like pigment and San San Diego and a bunch of like little boutiques but also sells online and I am just obsessed with it because I think for forever up until I got pregnant and then I got into car accidents and was like really looking at like what can I do to make sure that like me and my child are as safe as possible. I just always thought like baby onboard stickers or like the little stick families or whatever was just like people putting stickers on their car. I never really thought anything of it but there are studies out there that show that like people are made more aware of your car and her like more cautious if like they see a baby on board sticker and also if you were to get in an accident first first responders see that in no to look for a baby and so in actually makes everything a lot safer and like all. I've done so much research. Unlike at sea see and all the ones to try and find a baby on board. That wasn't just like a yellow caution thing in hearses like perfect it's a magnet so it doesn't like it won't damage your car Dr but it also doesn't come off in the car wash. I'm just a big. It's really cute on your car and it's really inexpensive. I mean it's like ten bucks so that's okay that's my next thing. Okay so my next one. Is I wear these half tease. Whenever I'm wearing a white t shirt that's a little bit transparent and everyone's like where do you get your T.'s? And I'm like they are literally from a website called Haffey so also you're the only person I've ever seen where half team but like it makes makes so much sense and it's such a perfect idea so the thing is all the time if I'm wearing a white t shirt or something that's like more low cut that I wanted to be. I would layer. I had like a nude away in a black tank top underneath. Yeah but the thing is then. You're adding like extra layers to your stomach. You're making it warmer thicker when you don't need coverage here you you just need it here. Yeah so it's just like a little top of a tank top that comes sports brought to here it's so comfy also will just wear them around the house like as a Bra. If I'm on a Lazy Day and I just want some sort of little teeny bit of support. I don't even need like a letter or anything. Just wear like a t-shirt that's amazing there. There I'm pretty sure. The company is like for Mormon Modesty. So it's meant to like make a top more modest than like cover up your your chest goals but even even if you don't care about modesty it's just a perfect comfort thing. Well even if you care about modesty in the like in a workplace environment. I feel like it'd be nice if like even I know when we did confidence makeover with Rachel. A big thing that we talked about was like her style. Personally personally is very edgy fund flirty but then go to work and be a boss lady and so it's hard because she's like okay here. Are My work. Clothes in here. Might not work clothes. I feel like that's a good thing to like kind of transition in between the two. I like if you've talked a little cut for like being. I don't know in like a a nine to five workplace environment but you like it's Q.. U. Then maybe you just throw half Tian and then becomes like quote unquote uh work and they have like Hynek ones. They have ones with sleeves and then they also the ones that I wear. It's just a spaghetti strap and it's a scoop neck and so it's a little bit lower and I don't feel like being suffocated I love. I LOVE THEM DOT com. I don't think I have enough elite code but I'll try to get one and what was like your it out. We'll figure it out. I only have one clothing item on here because right now I'm pregnant and so I feel like most of my regular clothing items don't fit me and then I don't want to just give pregnancy things because I don't really have maternity clothes so whatever but I will say four pregnancy and not not pregnancy. That'd be called. American Eagle jumpsuits. Our the business like I literally I. I'm I'm now seven months pregnant as of today which is really exciting and I like still fit into my American Eagle Trump soups. Because they're like so stretchy and it's nice because pretty much all of them have like an elastic waistband or some sort of like waste definition and they're like a little slowly like the legs Tummy area and so I just feel like they're so cute. They're so comfortable. And even if you buy one now it's not like you're buying a maternity jumpsuit. That you won't and get to wear again you can wear it after. Pregnancy and American Eagle is such high quality and they have really good sales so I would say wait until they have like a forty percent off sale and then just go through him by like three jumps is at a time because they can't be a little pricey if they're like forty five bucks for a jumpsuit way that it's still the same high quality and you're getting it for cheaper so I would say like out of everything clothing wise for my pregnancy. That's been the only thing that's like tried and true other than like oversized sweaters or whatever Of like I just I keep buying them because I know that like I'm going to be all be able to wear them. Post was pregnancy. It just like I was able to wear them prepregnancy but also wear them now but so is the perfect blend of like casual and like cute. You can dress it out until like Shell L. Esguerra Mike to Breakfast. Yeah by I love jumpsuits because I so big Jumpsuits weren't like a big thing when I was in Middle Swan High School And I hated dresses because I associated dresses with like girly dress up like I don't like them and when I was like a junior in high school I figured the dresses like a Baggy T.. Shirt dress is basically just wearing like an oversized Pajama shirt. Yeah and then. I was like so into dresses and then I figured out that that jumpsuits are just dresses. That also won't make your thighs. Chafe yes and I was like. Oh my sign me up here like this is it. Oh I'm GONNA throw win an extra one that I just thought. Love speaking of jumpsuits. I have a Pajama Jumpsuit. From target. Oh I do love your Pajama jump. I Love I love it. It's so soft..

"I will have needed to eat breakfast already. So then you're like eating like a granola bar to like hold yourself over and it's like okay so what I'm getting is you. You don't like Brunch breakfast. Yes like I wish that. I wish that branch could be at breakfast time. You want to go go away. But like no one's want's GonNa get together with me at like eighty two breakfasts San Diego like. That's not a thing is I feel like most people that enjoy brunch or like in their like twenties in our life of a millennial thing. Yeah it's like we went out last night to the winery and so like let's meet up at like eleven ketchup. Chat like half mimosas. But like I'm pregnant and I'm not having the most is like I'm just really hungry. Relied French so he just like wall. Oh my friends to wake up at like six. Am Okay maybe a hundred something special before like the baby gets here and just like wake up at six. AM show up at your front door and be like. Let's go code breakfast. Also I just want to say if they're cuts in this podcast in podcast going forward for a long time. We weren't saying the sex of my baby on the podcast so like there were some cuts to cut out that but now I know what his name is going to be. You know what his name is going to be. And so it's really hard hard because that's what we call him in conversation. So we just we go on highland start talking about him and say his name in the. We have to cut it like on instagram or on here. Yeah I'll say like baby P which by the way P like my last name is Paul it so if I ever say polit or P I'm not saying like baby pete or uh-huh like the other day and have log. I said like like Oh good job. Body like B O d y like to my body and so when message serum was like like I think Schuyler baby's name is bobby and she slipped up. Maybe like it's just putting disclaimer. We have a name and so so. If they're cuts that's why his name. But do we WANNA get into our favorite shore. Okay so mine has like no structure. I'd just have a list of things. Do you want to just kind of like go back and forth yeah mind is structured. So I'M GONNA like I'll put a little sparkle Emoji next to the ones I talk about a good idea or I can just delete them. You know okay. I'll let you go first and then I'll I'll go kind of based on the category that you're in okay. So my like current favorite thing right now. Is this deep conditioner. I took a picture of the labels so that I can give on your information. It's from pure allergy. It's the color fanatic serious color care instant deep conditioning mask some interesting. My phone's going off. I have the thickest hair the world yeah every single time we go to drive our go somewhere new to get a haircut or something. They're like. Oh yeah it'll probably be like twenty minutes and I'm like no no no I have like a lot of hair and then after like an our. They're like Oh girl you've got a lot of hair and I'm like yes I know so with. I do like a more lightweight conditioner. Yeah it just doesn't get all the way in even if I look use a wet brush in the shower. Yeah this instantly tangles which my hair so tangled that's awesome. It makes it like Silky smooth but it doesn't feel heavy heavy because I think sometimes deep conditioners. If you're like oily they leave a residue that feels heavy. I get out of the shower. My hair feels like light and airy and like so clean and it's safe for colored hair. That's awesome so. Have you made your hair anymore. Currently say no. We've been talking about a little little bit like and I know that I've watched a bunch of people doing videos and like the curly girl hair method and like one of the number one thing people do is like a lot more by deconditioning an anger and leaving conditioner. Yeah I think it makes my hair less frizzy because my hair forms more curls and less like hinge printing so that stuff is amazing I get it at Ulta Also for those of you who don't know series to have like ringlets curls throughout high school. Yeah it's only in the last couple years where I feel like it's gotten like a little more wavy lead. You like now I can. I can shower leave my hair down in air dries and it's a little frizzy but it's like looks fine before it would be like poof out. Yeah if I didn't and I would have to do scrunching like with scrunchy product. It's so interesting. How like your body changes as you get older? You don't want might be an interesting video following my hair hair care routine from two years ago or three years ago or four or from high school because I remember I use this very specific like bed. Head blue bottle SOPH- SCRUNCH and I'm the biggest thing was you would flat iron the Front Bay your hair. Oh yeah just the bay. I hope funny I feel like that's a different person. I I know I should follow. That would be really funny. I there's a tutorial it's I think it's private on my channel but it was like one of my v Videos. It was like how I get my natural throw beach waves and it was like my hair routine. That's so cute Do you WANNA do product. Oh yeah so I will also do something inlet similar vein. Okay okay so what you're going to find out throughout this podcast. If you don't already know is that I hate labels like I literally just like I feel like products products look messy and I hate them and like it had bothered me for so long for years that like if I were to get like a new shampoo or like a new face wash that it would clash in the shower like it would just look like a hodge podge of all the products maybe like a year and a half or two years ago. Oh I got plastic amber bottles off of Amazon and then I labeled them so. It's literally if you walk into my shower. It's like a plastic amber number bottle labelled that says like shampoo then conditioner than face. Wash them. Body Wash Shampoo Toner. Like it's all it's all on the same acetic it like it's so easy and I feel like it literally. The the bottles are super inexpensive. They're made out of plastic so they're like durable but they're like a nice ace amber color and then you can also use them for other things in your house right and so I just feel like it makes my chatelet. 'cause I'm a big shower person like I always keep keep like a bottle of lavender and my shower in like do droplets before I shower because I just want it to be like a spa experience so I feel like walking in there and not seeing. Kyle's like doc look like just for men or what it like. It's just it makes it so much more relaxing. Yeah Your House really is like a small fast cop anyone could ever give me okay. So my next one is a makeup one okay and this is the primer that I am convinced prior to this product. Doc I was convinced that primer was just like a scam like I was convinced. Like it doesn't actually do anything. Yeah it's just like an extra thing that the makeup industry get you to buy totally then the one I like. Is the the smash box. The original photo-finish smoothened Blur Primer. This primer is. It's not that expensive. It comes in like a little silver bottle. You only need a little bit and it creates this. Just like beautiful prepped canvas of your face so like when I just put on moisturizer voice riser and then I do my makeup it kind of like fills into the lines crocks and imperfections in my skin whereas this now is like I haven't even template so it makes applying buying like liquid foundation so much easier because it goes even if I don't get every spot perfectly it smooth. Oh it's so bad that's amazing thing. Yeah I feel like Primers for forever. I just thought were like I would buy the was. Was it the poor fashionable but I felt like it made the makeup slide off on my. Yes yes I was like. Isn't this the opposite of primers supposed to do so. I like stopped using them and then I got one when we went to the live that like I really like and so I've been just using using that like in in tandem in conjunction with my moisturizer but I'm not like obsessed with that match. Try that one. I highly recommend it. I the next kind of on the similar train. I I just love it. Cosmetics I think it cosmetics is like one of the best makeup brands out there. And that's the ULTA brand right so there there are separate brand with their their shoulder over and their whole thing is that they're focused on skin care so unusually like if you put on a foundation the ideas that the foundation is just like making you look better but like if you wear for too many days it can make you break out. And whatever their whole thing is that they're like skin care. I like foundation second so the only make what I'm right now is like they're heavier coverage and this is the bye-bye foundation which I really like but for forever. I've warned they're like CC creamer bb cream. That's like basically the same formula but it just kind of like tin in Syria skin so now and it's nice because I feel like I'm like I don't really breakout anymore and it just. It's nice knowing that like if I don't take off my makeup makeup makeup for like ten hours in a day that I'm not like ruining my skin and I'm going to break out bright because for so long I wore like Ben Nice stage makeup or likely to thick like like like like to face born this way or you know like thicker more full coverage and it's nice now 'cause I don't need the full coverage because it's acting as skincare right that make sense like my base isn't like I don't have a ton of pimples. Nothing no I feel like. That's so nice when you 'cause I was the same way I used to use like. I think the one I use was like a Kat Von D. Lakes superheavy coverage and I stopped using it after like her whole. Just WanNa rebuy after the whole like Andy Rocks And so then I was like all right. I need a new foundation and I had never had my makeup professionally done this a year ago and we had a makeup artists come in for a shoot and she used a Oh. It's a beautiful. I murder foundation and it's like perfect. It's not as heavy. Yeah and I can like blend into into my neck better and it's just gager and I feel like it's especially probably tricky for you because you're on camera so much like when you're on camera you not that you need to be wearing makeup but if you're going to be wearing a foundation it's helpful for it to be like really pigmented like I. It's kind of like a light stage makeup young and so I feel like it's hard because does you don't want to wear something super full coverage because like that's not what you want anymore but you also don't want to just wear like a tinted moisturizer because then and if you're shooting from faraway and may not pick up right so it's so it's a whole to do I do i. I love that. You're just like it cosmetics. As a whole my favorite. Yeah I just even maybe like a month ago my mom was like okay Schuyler. Here's what I walked for back to school. I want you to take me to Ulta Sephora and I won't you just like Redo my make because she'd been using like a bare minerals foundation powder and like she was using like a bronze earlier that like with like her the same brush show is really big. It was just like she hadn't updated her makeup bag and forever and was buying the same products so like it. Cosmetics is. What we're doing for you right? I did that and Mike some highlights and stuff but not so fun Okay so my next one. So you you guys know I'm a fabrics ambassador. This podcast is sponsored by Fedex. However so I had been in love with their high waisted? Solid powerhold leggings for awhile. Since before I I started the ambassadorship and then through the ambassadorship. That was like the one product where I was like. I want to talk about this. I have found a pair that is better than the power hold. Their air called the salar solid pure Lux liking. These are literally the perfect dupe for the fast.
"sierra" Discussed on Sierra Unfiltered
"Hello everyone and welcome back to episode eighteen of Sierra unfiltered. Hey friends I am so excited because as we're filming this I know this is going up a little bit like a couple of weeks after we're filming it because I'm going on vacation but it is November first which means we can officially start celebrating Christmas. Yes I listen to Christmas music literally all morning like Kyle was late to work because we were dancing to Christmas music. So jealous a Stephen Bands Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving and then he's like all out. I mean I might ban Christmas decor until the the day after Thanksgiving like I think that like we won't put up a tree until that. So that's those my question. Are you a fan of like yes. You're will start getting in the spirit but like were keeping keeping all the fall decor out and then after Thanksgiving you switch well and then also I think I mean Thanksgiving is a whole topic in itself. AF- like the origins of Thanksgiving giving and all that but the actual getting together with family and cooking. And like I don't know being thankful for everything I'm like really down with the holiday like it's not my least favorite holiday. It's actually a holiday. I really enjoy. Yeah so I like I think that putting up Christmas decorations. Sion's is early. Feels like skipping to me. Yeah Yeah I get that and it is kind of a skip thing like if you go to someone's house for Thanksgiving and they're like like all Christmas out you're like you're like why. Why are we here? Yeah let's happening. Should this be a Christmas card. which don't get me wrong? I love a good Christmas party but like but we need to let Thanksgiving how this moment even more than Thanksgiving just fall in general they feel like it's finally at least we're in southern California Nia so it's just now getting to like we're in the mornings we're like ooh actually coal wetter all day yesterday and didn't have the AC on on that is an accomplished. I know God but it's like the fall and winter is difficult because I love Christmas. So I'm absolute Tillich. Get right into it. But just like December's actually barely winter. And so then if like I feel like I get all hyped on winter in December then like I hate January a February because it's like winter is done like I did all my winter activities ass ember. I understand also feel like if it snowed here. It'd be different. Awesome what kind of Christmas tree person are you. Oh like a fake tree a real tree. Here's the thing I want to be a real tree person like like my family only ever got real trees. It was like a whole thing like we'd go and pick out the tree. We'd always do like a seven foot Douglas Fir. That was kind of our rush. Aw and then when Stephen and got our first apartment I was like we have to get a real tree like even if it's just like a three foot tree we were in college. We had no money and no room for a tree like we have to do it. So I got like a dollar store tree base and then we went and picked out a tree and then I wrapped presents and put them under the tree. This four years ago and bruiser who didn't understand that a tree being indoors does not mean that that is a piece spot peed on all the presence fun so I had to take part all the presents some of them I had to throw out a lot of them were like inboxes refine and like redo everything and then after that was like we just have to get a fake tree so we have like a good good-faith tree now but I don't know it's hard with dogs because they they smelled the tree and then they're like they're like ooh urinated brain go. I don't feel so we have a fake trie but I would seem in an I always said when we have kids. Then we'll get a real treat because then it's like a to do going and picking up the tree but one is just the two us what about you so kyle and I are having a debate this year. I don't know I'll keep you posted. Keep the the listeners dated because because here's the thing this is gonna sound very silly to ninety nine percent of people listening but we were real tree people like I. I love living plants or whatever. I think we've done. A fake tree may be one year that we've been together but like were we put it up like this is not our thing But I I've always really wanted a white Christmas tree because I'm such a fan of why like it's literally the most basic thing and I'm going to get tracked attracted comments but like realistically this might be my first time ever saying this. Wide is my favorite color. I know it is like I'm coming out to the world in letting everyone run. Know why this is my favorite color and if that makes me a boring person like I'm a boring person as for the last couple of years I've said like I like terra. Cotta dusty rose Israel maybe like a mustard your secondary color. You won't want to be the primary color and then like dusty rose and yellow like kind of dusted up. Yeah so I'm coming forward guys. If you think you're going to get away it would be like. If because you love like a like a Pastel blue how would you describe the shade of blue. I likely grey-blue so if there were Christmas tree will that would look weird if it was like customary like a fifth of people have gray blue Christmas trees please. I feel like so weird so I don't know her but like how very white a white Christmas tree would work free because you guys are like very like you have all your decorations. Various statically pleasing are treated like. Here's a paper ornament that I made in preschool when I was four and and we're going to hang it on the tree and every year by like two new ornaments that let commemorate something from that year but we never think about like okay. We have Heller Pal yet. No we don't like a a cohesive theme tour the theme of Nostalgia like I woke up this morning and I told Kyle I was like you know what my Christmas and he was like. What's your Christmas aesthetic? And I was like I'm going to buy a shit wooden beads. Like I just want like what in strips everywhere because I feel like in the past I've done like white and gold. That's like yeah just kind of everything in our house but I feel like having some like wooden beads makes it a little more like the stall J.. A little more Bohemian. It's a little bit more like going to like the cabin with. Yeah Emma and I love like a like a nice craft Brown wrapping paper so I feel like like Craft Brown wrapping paper with like lace ribbon and then like would beads on like a white tree speaking my so since we're talking about Christmas I I do early for this okay. Because we've had this awkward running a few. Okay we're like we never talk in advance like Are we doing Christmas presents. And every year I throw like a white elephant party so then like sometimes. We're like okay. We just are in the white elephant exchange and then sometimes like it. One of US gets the other person something and then like one time like you made a little calendars of poppy and so like that was just like a small. You were like Yeah No. We're not doing gifts but like this and I'm like well no I need to. Oh I didn't know that we were doing president so I go. It is always a weird thing because I feel like with with pretty much everyone else in my life established like weather. We do presents or not like I have a fuzzy my mouth like even with Jessica like we've established like we do birthday presents. We do Christmas present as both of us are like Prince present t people run but you and I have never established birthdays Christmas. No 'cause like sometimes like we don't do gifts for each other and then sometimes like I feel like it's more if there's something that we think of for that person around the time so it's like I wouldn't be like Oh oh it's scholars birthday. Let me go buy something for her. I would be like Oh my Gosh Schuyler love this and her birthday is coming up perfect. I'll get this for her so let's just establish it now you you know what I have an idea. Let's get each other presence and then on a podcast like around Christmas. Let's swap present. Okay okay wait. Let's let's see. How can we set a gift? Like dollar limit Do you WANNA do like Under forty dollars perfect okay. Because there's I feel like it's stills room for creativity yet it's not like too big and then we'll do a gift exchange cast okay. I can't wait other. We establish now because it is always a hard thing. I feel like on my list of need to get presents for. I'm always like to get one for Syrian Stephen Woman two years ago we did a calendar with our cats where we like dress them up each month which is like so funny and then last year we did poppy and so this year. We aren't aren't doing it. Like spoiler alert for any family members or friends who are hoping for it but this year we aren't doing a cat or hamster calendar so there's not like a little the president now for me to give my aunts and uncles and like my friends like don't really do presents or you know so I feel like now I really have to sit down and establish tablet. You know what I all. I've done this for the past three years and I love. It is the red at secret. Santa Gift Exchange. You do love you. Should you should do it this year. It's really fun but a- ah like what if they give me a bad precedent but it's only like twenty bucks. Yeah so it's it's it's not a big deal I also so don't know how to use run it you and trying to teach me over the last two years I still just don't you. Just don't I just don't know don't want it sometimes. Though sometimes times if they're like big big moments pop culture as only referring to the rebels drag race finale. Like if there if there's something big happening and I know that like good memes are going to be on there because sometimes twitter memes are like you know the only thing I really use read at four. Wooden game of thrones was happening the alive discussions they have really great discussions. I honestly would say at least forty percent of the time that I'm is survivor. Yeah I just love the survivors and so I feel like there aren't any shows on right now. There's not a westworld. There's not a game of thrones. There's nothing where they're like deep theories about it right like the deepest thing. We're watching right now is the good place and like all the twists in that are like. Don't need to be discussed right. You know Yeah read a gift Exchange he should do we..

the two got my life and I've tried literally like every kind of milk like name a milk milk almond soy go macadamia hemp right like literally have you tried goats milk you know what I don't think I've got milk do like baking and I do like cooking and so I've like cycled through in oat milk is just superior like is it good for cooking to like let's say I'm making like a chowder meanest yeah oat milk does I think so I have like sounds like doesn't also I've tried so many different types of milks in like I dunno in powders in big potato soups etc and you would think the oat milk wouldn't be perfect for it because I feel like when you think about Milky thinks folks so there is my heartache so do you think that are you crunching is.
