FOOD - "The Delicious" - Travel Feasts - Turkish

Authentic Turkish food from Istanbul *drool*

Ok ok, trying to calm down because these food pictures my friend Sadya just sent me make me want to just jump in the computer screen and feast. Is that weird? I wish we could really do that.

But anyway, Turkish food is my Achilles’ heel and I’m dyinggg to go to Turkey to try their authentic dishes. For now, will have to settle for these amazing food pictures from Istanbul.

A belated spring (beauty product) cleaning

Wow.

I knew I was a product fiend, but this past weekend, I felt like I was at an all time low. I was cleaning out my room, and found boxes of beauty products I’ve bought and STILL haven’t gotten around to trying.

FOOD - "The Delicious" - Italian - Spanish/Latin American

Sosa Borella, just so-so.

Feels like it’s been a while since I had a food post!

Treated my friends Yasir and Sarah (aka YasRah) to dinner after they got married a while back at Sosa Borella in midtown. The Italian-Argentinian cuisine sounded promising.

I love the outside of the restaurant, all white with an outdoor patio on the 2nd floor; looks like they took a slice of Italy and planted it in NY. It feels like you’re eating in someone’s comfortable, dimly lit, wooden-floor kitchen. The food though, was just OK.

June 29, 2009

I know I said I’m all about facial hair, but I totally meant that for guys. So why are “Stylish Mustaches for Girls” even in existence?

Stylish Mustaches for Girls, $7

Stylish Mustaches for Girls, $7


I love that they have a Bollywood ‘stache. Anyway, this is their reason, at least according to their website:

“Everyone loves a mustache, but why do boys get to have all the fun?

This set of seven stylish mustaches is made specifically to accentuate feminine features. Each furry lip ornament has adhesive backing and is made of synthetic hair in a girlish shade of pink.
