Hellz-Bellz Fall Delivery 1 2010 Collection

Posted in Fashion by yoshi on August 31, 2010

i feel SO blessed to be surrounded by talented friends. really, i sometimes look back at my life and think – WOW, how the HELL did i make it here?! answer: i’ve met the right people and the right time.

one of these individuals is lawn. and despite a recent tragedy, she (and the rest of the hellz team) pushes on, stronger than ever, so i’m not surprised that the Hellz-Bellz first delivery for Fall 2010 is everything (and more than) a girl could ever want in her closet!

aptly named “The Rest is Her Story,” the collection portrays vengeful vixens, sensuality and ferocity. dark dark and more dark please!

gah – can’t wait to get my hands on these pieces, i’m going to be one broke bitch if hellz continues to kill it season after season!

**editor’s note: as i’m typing this i just received a package from hellz!**


and thank you to HELLZ for sending over these! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

“head b*tch” bracelet

…on being a fatty: ENID’S (yes they have food too)

Posted in Because I'm Fat by yoshi on August 30, 2010

suz and i continued working on our project and it brought us to enid’s where we had an early dinner. enid’s at night is usually packed with skaters, hipsters and girls looking to get laid, but during the day, its pretty chill =P

they have great food and a lovely drink called the harrison. we ordered their pickled plate, shared some curry cake sliders, and even ordered blackened catfish sandwich – yes, we were hungry.

oh yea. we ordered dessert.

CHROME NYC Flagship Store Opening Party!

Posted in Events by yoshi on August 28, 2010

for 4-5 hours STRAIGHT, john cardiel rocked the new Chrome store with reggae tunes – had everyone going NUTS! i think that’s the longest i’ve ever stayed at a store opening event – on record.

igei (who by the way is also sponsored by chrome hehehe), myself, matt (shut), jahoon, wonka, tyler (outlier) and the rest of the chari & co guys rode over to the spot and jason (who works there) kindly let our whole group in without any problems – thanks jason!!!

throughout the night, we danced, we drank (a lot) and ate (a lot). the meatball shop graced chrome with their catering!!! how awesome is that?!

but the best part was the fact that they did NOT run out of alcohol even after the event ended around midnight – WTH?! i guess that’s why the store remained jam-packed til the very end lol.

…on being a fatty: Delicatessen and the Dirty-Debs

Posted in Because I'm Fat, Events by yoshi on August 28, 2010

the other night my favorite lady promo team: the dirty debutantes, threw their last night at the lower lounge of delicatessen. once cannot go to delicatessen and not eat. so that’s what i did. i brought along my co-worker sandra and treated her out to dinner since she’s going back to sf to finish up school.

we ordered bbq sliders (you MUST order these), truffled fries with parmesan (these too are to DIE forrrrrr), and to feel a little healthy, we got some grilled asparagus topped with prosciutto hehehehe:

mmmmm slidersssss

fries... i could NOT stop eating these!!!

grilled asparagusssss

and to finish it off, we ordered “the birthday cake” and hell yea it felt like it was my birthday! with vanilla gelato!?!?! i want to have this for my birthday… which should be celebrated everyday. ok, i’ll settle for every month. thanks.

after we stuffed our faces with food, we headed downstairs to hangout with the ladies and some friends, louie showed up too! =)

oh yes, they were serving specials on mimosas and sangria… you know i was all about the sangria. all 1/2 of it! bahahaha #lightweight – thanks sandra for finishing it for me
