Laugh as we share some of the most embarrassing finds and take you through clothes we should have “donated” years ago! One of us is very passionate about this process while the other is less enthused… (can you guess who is more excited?)

Let us know if you will be detoxing your home this spring!

Many of you know our obsession with the ABC series The Bachelor! I mean we even did our own version of it (check it out on our IG TV). We were trying to refrain our thoughts on the show, but this season has been so ridiculous and drama-filled so we couldn’t not resist!

Listen as we share our thoughts on Pilot Pete, the girls on this season, and what our predictions are for his final 3 contestants! (warning: if you are not caught up, there are some spoilers)

Even if you don’t follow the series, this episode is entertaining and outrageous on its own based on how immature the contestants are this season!
