bourbon & bleach
Updated: Sep 15, 2020
Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense & Peppermints" and Tommy James & The Shondells' "Crimson and Clover" are my two creative anthems of this moment's mash-up! Belted out (badly) both of these songs with the replacement words of "bleach and bourbon" as those two liquids have been my vices recently. I mean, painting with bleach and drinking bourbon. Two different purposes but seem to compliment well for the mood and for the musical association. Honestly when I said out-loud "bourbon & bleach" these two songs immediately came to mind. Weird how the brain works, eh?
These hand painted, bleach cotton shirts are whipped up, washed, and hand-cut with the coolest of intensions. Total rockstar shirts to wear countless times. Shop these guys in the shop now!
As for the bourbon, normally I drink my grandfather's choice of Crown Royal. I mean typically, I am a strict tequila girl, but happen to fall into possession of a basic bottle'o Jim Beam. Not a huge connoisseur, but it did the job. So I figured, to increase my fiber intake--ergo increasing all health benefits of alcoholic consumption--I made a little concoction. Soaked a few pitted medjool dates for 24 hours, stuffed with a pecan, then rolled in coarse brown sugar. Popped them back into the fridge for a chill, and wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am. Rode an elevated flavor train.
So in true full circle fashion, I advise listening to these jams, enjoying a dram of bourbon (or an infused fruit) and purchasing yourself a new bleached shirt. Or of course, you can get tipsy and shoot me a message so I can make you one. Sadly, can't sell you booze, but I sure as hell can hook you up with bad a$$ art and clothes.
