“maybe it’s maybelline”, 6 years ago i was at the lipstick jungle premiere party and a friend told me that their friend was the girl who wrote that jingle.  she hasn’t worked a day since and is cha-chinging.  well apparently maybelline is cha-chinging more than any other cosmetic brand in the whole world at any price point.  this is amazing.  david greenberg, the prez has honed in what makes maybelline the “it” brand, “it’s the spirit of new york. when i walk the streets, i feel everything is possible.  women in new york feel confident.  they can achieve anything they want.  they have the power to be successful and it’s this emotion, this vibration, this dream of new york.”  and this is why i love new york and why the world reacts to new york in the way it does.  so there might be reccessions, globalization that scares us americans, but we have to remember, we are the “it” country, we set the trends, and this global power is no way near it’s end.  xo lili quotes from beautyinc mag

pierre hotel party

this sunday i celebrated my cousin jaz’s bridal shower.  what a lovely gathering of women chatting love over caviar.  orchids overflowing tables, veuve on tap, and desserts that got you tipsy!  i became the on the spot photographer which i very much enjoyed,  and thanks to instagram it didn’t take too much effort.  gifts were label dropping, but i gave jaz the best present–a toast thanking her for sharing her love with our family and reminding all of us what we are all living for–love<3  xoxo lili brought the hello kitty wine:)

restore

01.27.2012 § Leave a comment

i recently replaced my iphone.  1st casualty was dropping it in the toliet.  it sparked fizzed and i couraged myself and fished it out of my pee.  it was worth it bc i told the truth to apple and got a free one!  then i got drunk and danced vogue moves and lost it again.  so i synced my new iphone to my comp and found that i had only synced my iphone once before.  seeing the pics and text conversations from a year ago, made me realize the importance of restoring.  every year people have resoultions.  hopes to resolve a problem in their life.  but maybe your life isn’t so bad?  maybe we need to realize that life is good, and all we need to do every year is restore instead of resolute?  i am reconnecting with old friends, remembering what my dreams are, and feeling comfortable with the way i look , the habits i have and do not feel like there is a need for a solution, but instead i should practice storation.  here are some pics from last yrs vegas trip.  sadly i won’t make this vegas trip w guava, but we can restore to go next yr.  xo lili loves her new iphone 4s

momofuku knows best

12.07.2011 § Leave a comment

if you are a downtowner you have probably waited in one or some of the famous momofuku lines.  everytime i have a guest in town and want to show them an easy going delicious trendy comfort meal- i take them to momofuku.  my fav is the og noodle bar (natalie portman ate there and they are heavily non-friendly to vegetarians), and the pickled oysters at ssam on the bbq bread is ova!  i woke up to a friendly email that josh and i are able to bypass the ko reso race and get front row seats again.  so grateful to have such knowlegdeable chefs to give me another treat to eat!  if you want to call yourself a real new yorker- well then you must dine at one of the momofuku monopoiles, or at least get the blueberry cream cookie from milk.  today’s weather is perfect for the momofuku ramen, with pickled spread, legendary berkshire pork buns, and smoked chk wings.  xo lili is so ko lucky

happy st nicks!

thanks to my love, i got my kicks!  yes i am the luckiest girl in the whirl.  bc i get to twirl in my margiela suede boots with my margiela bag and to thank my boyfriend, i got my dear friends at momofuku ko who are so kind and generous to treat us to our dinner tasting last saturday!  the best dish was the shaved foie gras over lychee.  if you feel like having an intimate bar night with really good music, food, drinks and watch the chefs cook, you must go, but practice being quick on your mouse clicks bc they do not budge on the reservation list…xo lili loves being booty licious!

its on at corton

if you have any taste in your soul, you must go to corton.  like a child, i tippy toed to see through the glass kitchen window, star strucked by paul liebrandt’s gorgeous hair as he carefully swept back his stress.  the two men next to me asked me who the chef was.  “who do you think?”  it was obvious, but of course i knew who the chef was,  i had watched his hbo documentary ‘matter of taste’ 3 times, and i am not a person who likes to waste time.  the men stared hard in paul’s direction, and i said, “yes, it’s him, the only person without a chef’s hat.  look at his passionate face- he is serious about food”.  if i had to use one word to describe corton it is “now”.  the decor, tasting menu, cocktails, paul’s youth and humilty is what the world needs now.  every dish was a version of perfection, and i left dinner so delighted that i have already booked two more reservations this month.  i could go on an on, but i highly suggest you do your self a favor and truly learn what flavor is through the artful mastery at corton.  xo lili love crushin on corton and chef liebrandt

light lunch

12.01.2011 § 1 Comment

today i ate margiela for lunch and tried to diet on eye shopping.  i tried on an amazing blush blazer (which josue said is an awful color on me) and the most sexiest suede boots (bitch you betta bring it, cuz i brought it, thought you got it, got your boyfriend so worked up he went and shot it, thought he caught this, but i just  f l a u n t  it, and make his sweet potato mush, he keeps begging to push push, on my sweet potato toosh, mush potatoes).  so even though i didn’t get what i wanted, i did get a minute of window seat (the office seats by the window), and the sun shined on me, and josue caught the moment to complete my light luncheon.  stay pin! xxlili

even though i regive, i live for material gifts…yes i am a double standard bitch, but who wouldn’t want these lovelies.  forget chanel, miu miu or anything you thought you liked.  its all about margiela.  no label- just clean classic foward style.  i am starting a must have margiela hand bag fund if anyone feels generous to donate for the sake of fashion.  lusting lili

regive

11.29.2011 § Leave a comment

the other day i was walking and thought of the word regive.  it’s re-give, but pronounced like revive with a ‘g’.  i survive on retailing goods, but my favorite gift is always giving creatively- or as i call regive.  my coworker asked what was the best pen to gift, mont blanc? ball or fountain? platinum or gold? and i looked at him like wtf and he said, “ask josh!  he would know!” so we email him and he a replies my fav is 3g roller ball, wikipedia said mont blanc pioneered with the fountain, i prefer platinum over gold, got 2 2nd opinions and we all agreed that mont blanc=pen & cartier=watch.  i replied saying i preferred the iphone pen-watch and then asked him if he expected a gift like this from me?  thankfully he said no, and i tell him i am going to get him the momofuku milk cook book, and he tells me, “i already bought it for you!”  in love lili
