Sisters from another Mister, Danielle and Cindy met at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, um, some time ago. It was ‘like’ at first mix tape and we’ve been close ever since. Even though life has taken Danielle to New York and Cindy to Los Angeles, we’ve remained close. (Fun fact: Cindy met her husband at Danielle’s wedding. Funner fact: He went to WashU as well but the two had never met while there. Funnest fact: Cindy is the only one still married.)
Our previous venture, Baby Fish Mouth, was an infant clothing company which took famous movie lines and put a clever “baby” spin on them. After shuttering that in 2014, we needed another creative outlet and our recent Instagram obsessions (See Obsessed) led Cindy to propose a blog.
Polar Coastal is a play on many words. Obviously we’re on opposite coasts, but we’re also polar opposites. Danielle is a raging type-A New Yorker, a writer, single and social with a love for wine, CrossFit and tennis. She also has a beautiful 11-year old boy. Cindy is a bit more reserved, married with two lovely girls, works in print production, a “Midwest-Californian,” who considers wearing Crocs a form of dressing up, and despite having an intense love for the couch, is trying to get back into working out. (You can read more about that in The “F” Bomb, where the”F” stands for Fitness. (Minds out of the gutter people!)
We hope you like following our struggles, travels and daily lives. And of course, please say hi!
