two LA based sisters who love to blog.

Now Playing: Phoenix

Last week Phoenix released the first act of a 4 part mini-documentary titled, INITIALS P.H.O.E.N.I.X. Directed by Guillaume Delaperriere, each video shows the creative process behind their most recent album Bankrupt! Fun fact! Phoenix played today at Governors Ball in New York, although we were not in attendance we hope to catch them on the west coast at Fyf Fest. You can now watch the entire documentary below!

A Snapchat Story: NYC

It has been almost 2 weeks since my sister left for NYC and I’m still alive!…barely. Courtney and I talk everyday about her fun adventures in the big apple and although I love listening to her stories, it makes me miss her so much more. We have this amazing app, Snapchat that helps fill the 2,794 mi. distance with pictures, FaceTime, and text. I’ve been taking screenshots of all the snaps Courtney sends my way and posted them below as what you might call a Snapchat Story. Enjoy!



P.S. We reunite in two days Sees!! ❤

My Sister is a USC Graduate.

I cannot express how proud I am of all that you have accomplished. Growing up we shared our closet, bedroom and even our friends. I am so happy that I get to share this special moment with you. As your little sister I can honestly say that you are the biggest inspiration in my life. I admire your kind and nurturing soul, your courage to do what you love no matter what, and your heart that knows no boundaries. I love you and wish you the best in your (our: let’s face it your stuck with me) bright future. FIGHT ON!

on friday two parents were faced with the tragic loss of their 3 year old son Ryan. although i did not know the family personally, i was a fan from social media. the purpose of this hashtag is to keep Ryan Saldana’s memory alive and you can do so by sharing his story. you can re-post pictures of this vibrant little boy from his mother’s instagram account with the hashtag #redballoonsforryan to show your love and support. There has also been a GoFundMe page started for the family and donations can be made here. my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Ryan Saldana ,may his fiery locks live on in our hearts. #redballoonsforryan

San Francisco.

“What should we do tomorrow?”

“Disneyland or San Fran” we chose the latter.

Fortunately we had a couch to crash on in San Fran {shout out to Sacha & Cody! We love you!!} otherwise this spontaneous 2 day adventure would not have happened. It was about time us sisters took a trip to see our brother’s new place. I scream on the inside when I say “I visited my brother in San Fran.” It is just so weird to me, come home Codddyyyyy your twin misses you! Our time spent up north was short lived but I’m glad we lived it. Once we landed we were picked up by the tomato {Sacha’s car} with two very special people inside. They showed us the ropes of San Fran, did I mention they live next to the beach and the zoo?? Jealous. We toured the city, saw the sights and spent some good old fashion quality time together. On our last day we ate yummy food at La Boulange, drank some yummy boba, and went to explore on Haight & Ashbury {Sacha and I scored the best deal on boots 2 for $24! We were excited}. The weather took a turn for the worst so we went back home to watch a movie, eat some lunch, {on the menu: Chicken nuggets with Soda pop} and then played an intense game of Egyptian Rat Slap before our flight. Thanks again Sacha & Cody for giving us a slice of your new San Fran life! We’ll be back soon and we’ll be better at Egyptian Rat Slap…

Now Playing: Forestears


If you were to combine the sounds of Grizzly Bear and Beirut your outcome would be Forestears! Their sound is incredible and it’s been my jam commuting to and from work for the past week.  I can’t even tell you what genre their music falls under except for the “THEY’RE REALLY GOOD, JUST TRUST ME” genre. This creative bunch comes from Brighton and keeps us on the other side of the pond wanting more. Big things are in store for these guys, I’m sure of it. Check out their video for their song Smoulder House below.

P.s. this girl loves her some trumpet.




A Birthday in Paradise


ALOOOOHA! This year we celebrated the big 21 in Hawaii with some of our favorite people. Shall we do a head count?

– Kenzie – Cody – Courtney – Sacha – Kenna – Taylor – Momma – Auntie –

What a gang!! We are no strangers to the hawaiian lifestyle. All us Mitchell’s were given our names by our mom when we were born; Kalei, Ka’eo and Leinani. I think my mom ranks this trip 2nd best thing in her life, after her kids being born of course (wink wink). We all tried brushing up on our hula skills that my mom taught us so long ago because for some reason we thought this would come in use while in Hawaii. The opposite is true, we did not dance hula. We danced like nobody was watching and in fact there were lots of people watching and I am proud to say that I get my rhythm from my mother. (Queue Will. I. Am of the Black Eyed Peas) My mom would kick anyone’s butt in a hula dance off… Just saying.

“What is it like being a twin? Can you read each other’s minds?” the most common asked questions to any twin ever… No we can’t read each other’s minds and we don’t have any awesome twin powers…yet. It’s funny seeing how interested people can be in your life as a twin when having a twin is my normality. It’s all I’ve ever known. Right now the hardest part about being a twin is being away from him.  We’re on our own separate paths in life now, my path brought me to LA and Cody’s brought him to San Fran. Despite being what feels like planets away, we were able to reunite in paradise! Our birthday was full of sunburns, rainbow bread, turtles and lot’s of  Aloha spirit. Thank you to those who made this birthday so special. I love you.
