Ali is the witty, pretty kitty who writes most of the reviews on the Pants site.  She is quick with a joke and quick with a drink, and her celebrity soulmate is most likely Miss Piggy.

She is recently married but still loves to sit at sushi bars and bat her (long) eyelashes at the chefs for some extra uni.  Besides sushi, sake and ramen, Daryl’s love for all things Asian also extends to Pandas, and she hopes to cuddle with one one day soon.  Daryl drinks seltzer in alarming quantities…

Both sisters believe that not only do blondes have more fun, they have more food.  They share an intense passion for Miami Heat basketball, Rag & Bone jeans and Tom Ford make-up; they also think that Rose is a year-round drink.
