Pretty In Pink

Is anybody else obsessed with that lipcolor in the new Louis Vuitton ads? It's a pink stain of some sort. If anyone knows what it is please let me know! By the way, I finally found that perfect everyday eyeshadow color. You know when people have the most beautiful eyelid color and you can't tell if it's makeup or their naturally blessed shade? Well I've found my shade. It's (gasp) Maybelline Chai Latte. It's a quad and the "lid" color is perfect. I don't usually buy drugstore eyeshadows because they're never the same as they look in the package. But I took a chance on this one. I've been looking for this for at least 2 years now. I've finally resigned to the fact that I don't look my best in those fun shades of aqua that I'm always drawn to, especially with my platinum hair. So I'm always looking for the perfect browns. Something Pamela Ewing might have worn. But for right now I've found that perfect everyday color and I've been lightening up a bit on the warpaint lately. I have to admit I was inspired by the cover and layout of Gwen Stefani in the February Elle. She looks so pretty and much softer than usual.

White Teeth And All

Okay so make that 28 lipsticks...
I got my teeth whitened yesterday at Vitaldent. I got the new Sapphire technique which is supposed to cut down on sensitivity.
It's amazing! My teeth hurt a little yesterday but are fine today. I highly recommend this place. The $300 promotion won't be lasting too much longer so get over there fast. This price included a checkup which would have cost me $100 anyway. So let's just think of it as a $200 deal. But the cost did not include the take home trays which they really push on you, but I figure I want to keep up this amazing color so I thought what the hell. What's another $100? I am super pleased. I was really nervous about sitting still for an hour with my mouth alll contorted so I did take half a xanax and all was good.
So needless to say, I really needed a new red lipstick to go with my amazing new smile. Vincent Longo Gel-X formula in Coast.
A nice deep red. I haven't worn it yet so I'm not sure how the formala feels. I'll let you know. I also bought the Smashbox primer with the spf and and wrinkle reducers in it. I love the Smashbox primers! They are a little pricey, this one is $42 but they are truly amazing, and one with spf! I'm so excited. Also bought the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream. It's a newer formula that is much better than the old Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I feel like this one sinks right in and stays really even. No shiny spots at the end of the day. And it's only $23!

Let Me Eat Cake

My bf and I went to a new dessert spot tonight called Tisserie. Let's just talk about the cheesecake for a minute. The crust was out of this world. We also shared a chocolate mousse which was really good too but it didn't touch the freakin' cheesecake! I didn't realize the place was so big either. There was an upstairs that looked really cool and modern. But of course it was packed. But we were still able to find seats downstairs. Sometimes this is an impossible feat in NYC. I want to go back and check out the delicious looking savories as well. I also want to give a shout out to the carrot cake at Teany that I finally got to taste. I was wondering what all the fuss was about. My friend Erin hooked me up with some. Unbelievable!

The Good Stuff of 2006

My Boyfriend wanted to do a guest blog-spot because he's too lazy to start his own...

I basically just wanted to go over some shit I was really feeling in 2006.

1. Jeff Koons/Supreme skate deck- Where else can you buy a Jeff Koons piece for under $100.00? First Peter Saville, now Koons? What's next?

2. Keith Haring/Jeremy Scott for Adidas. I'm not a sneaker fag, but I just can't force myself to wear these museum pieces.

3. My Sony 32'' Flat screen. After obsessing for a year, I finally pulled the trigger. With HDTV and HDVR, I am SO ready to get snowed in for a weekend. Football games look INSANE! Go JETS!

4. Brooks Brothers- I suddenly wanted to buy some nice shirts, and became obsessed with Brooks Brothers. They are a little too long, but these things are classics.

5. Lunar Park by Brett Easton Ellis- I slept on the hard back when it came out, but the paperback had me by the nuts from start to finish. Scary and weird. I was having nightmares about Terby.

6. I.D. Magazine- The lifestyle one, not the design one( although thats cool too). I just finished my 5th complete year of not missing an issue. Plenty of back issues as well, but not one missing for 5 years. I keep them all in order and shit, like a good magazine nut should. I still get psyched when I see a new issue on the stand. Sad I know.

7. Factory Records, The Complete Graphic Album- This book is a complete collection of everything Factory Records put out in their too brief history. You talk about putting effort into everything they did, from poster to record sleeve, to club, this shit is outrageous.

8. Arctic Monkeys- I didn't believe the hype either, but when I heard the album, and all the other stuff, I was hooked like a crack head. Wait, maybe this was out in 2005. Either way its bangin innit?

9. 30 Rock- Please God, do not cancel this show. If this goes, while some bullshit with Jim Belushi stays, civilization really is collapsing.

10. Kaws- The Twins and the new Companion. Definite Museum pieces, but only toy heads know what I'm talking about right?

11. Barcelona and Paris- Two places we visited this year, Barca for the first time, Paris for the second. This sounds really cliche, but guess what? We want to go back. Topless beaches in Spain, and wonderfully dreary Parisian afternoons, just relaxin and buggin out all over the city.

12. FTW by Terry Richardson- Another book that Carrie gave me for my birthday. Awesome pictures of kids hangin out in the 80's, all punk rock and stuff. Only 1000 copies out there, and this was not cheap. thanks again.

13. My Grandparents- They died within 24 hours of each other. The funeral director had never seen this happen before in his entire career. Now thats old school love.
