Sorry I haven’t been up on my Lunches posts. It’s not because I haven’t been eating them, but because I haven’t been eating anything I wanna fess up to (good morning Doritos breakfasts). Our newest edition takes place with my friend Liz Lee, born into the public eye via Tumblr and MTV’s My Life A Liz, currently in the world being brand new to Instagram (follow her @lizleedoi), DJing, speaking about art thoughts, and of course…still on Tumblr. Anyway, I dragged Liz to the Valley on a sort of hot afternoon, and if you’re from LA, then you know that’s a total bitch move, but whatever, she came, and we went to Hugo’s.  Hugo’s is super important to any clean-eater living in LA, because they generally take a heartier stab at food without just deep frying it. ~*~PRAISE~*~

There are three locations, which you can find on their site.  After lunch we tried to hit up a Goodwill down the street, but it was just a donation center. Yet for some reason I went in anyway, just to hear them tell me “this is just a donation center.” Then I talked to Liz about a topic dear to my heart: procrastination.

Lunches: With Bethany Cosentino And Niki Takesh

Is it mid-January yet? Thank glob the holidays are dead and buried, and we have all some time to breathe. I spent this NYE a lot different than usual. I was sober at a wedding in NorCal, so I was spared from having to already hate 2014 before it truly even started like the rest of you. I woke up on January 1 feeling juuuuusssstttt fine. Every new year starts with illusions of what the next 12 months may bring, but every race to our resolution is temporarily stunted while we begin the daunting first task of trying to part with the hangover haze.

Steak At Agenda Long Beach

Anyone who’s anyone was at Long Beach Agenda this week. JK, it’s pretty much just my friends, industry peers, and some hot blogger chicks who are still nursing their hangovers, but whatever—they’re everyone to me and this post. If you’re unfamiliar with Agenda, it’s best explained as an invite and industry-only trade show where brands come to showcase what they’ll be releasing to the public over the next year. Attendees range from press outlets to big box buyers who shop for new brands and find out about upcoming drops and trends.  If you put the business stuff aside, you’ll see a bunch of young movers and shakers in town for a few nights catching up, trying to forget the 13-hour florescent-lit work day with a few beers and then waiting outside a hushed-up venue in the wee hours of the morning to catch some secret show the event has lined up. Agenda is awesome before you get there, grueling during the daylight hours, and awesome again by the time you leave.

Steaktooth Hangs With Remy Fox

I found Remy Fox online a month or so before I hit her up to come over to my house—that’s how Millennial friendships are born these days. I liked her based on the fact that she has a big butt with a small frame, nice skin and a bad attitude, which all take center stage on her Instagram page. Remy Fox is cool. She’s been dancing since before grade school taking classes in Russian ballet, modern ballet, modern dance, pointe, hip hop and tap. Now, Remy’s professional dance career has taken a turn from classic training to dancing on-stage with rapper, Lil Debbie. Basically, Remy twerks for a living.

Steaktooth On: Thigh Gaps

In the online world, it’s hard to distinguish between what is just enough and what is too far. Terms like “thinspiration” may have been born from the innocent phrases like “bikini ready,” but now these words are tied to much darker subjects—like pro-ana sites. It is for that reason alone many health and fitness bloggers have caught flack for promoting their body images, although likely to be achieved through a positive and healthy lifestyle. Now, the images end up triggering as often as often as they inspire.

Halloweenie Makeup With Steaktooth

Just when I thought I was done slathering foundation all over my face for the sake of blogging, makeup artist Alana Dawn hit me up to try out some Halloween looks. Since I only got a whopping five zits from what happened after our last hang out (my fault—I have sensitive skin), I figured, “Why the hell not? What else am I doing?” (The answer: nothing, really.) Annnd, because I love multi-tasking, I tricked one of my besties into a hangout session where I also exploited her free time by tempting her over with chocolate donut-flavored coffee only to have her run out the door on the way to work still scrubbing anime makeup off her eyes. So, if you’re still stumped on what wear this Halloween, here are my two new favorite looks that really only require rubbing glue stick on your eyebrows and some $20 contact lenses to set them off.

Natural Makeup: A How-To

You’re relaxing on the couch, cuddled up watching some whatever TV show, and out of nowhere your dude blurts out, “I hate girls who wear makeup.”

Waiittt for itttt…. nope! No explanation. Just back to watching TV. COOL! WTF does that mean?

The rest of the week carries on, and you do your best to brush your hair, lotion up, and leave your mascara tucked away. You don’t hear a peep from him about your looks. Cool? You’re doing good. You’ve embraced this makeup-less freedom, and it makes your mornings really easy. Plus, aside from the 10 people asking if you were sick or tired, this whole thing is starting to feel kind of good.

Then, Friday rolls around, and you’ve got plans to meet up and go out. Of course you dip back into your makeup bag, slap on a little cat eye, and run out the door. What’s the first thing you’re greeted with? “Babe! You look great!”

Commence thought process that looks like this: “…………………………………………………..”

If you have been blindsided by this, then you have two choices.

Meet a girl called Steak. She’s pretty funny for a girl—which means she’s hilarious, because we all know girls are way funnier than guys, right? Rachael is an iguana mother, a cacti farmer, a rap music listener, a wine drinker and a Nasty Gal blog contributor. In short, she is everything awesome, and she also has good taste in cars.

Steaktooth At Home

Steak 9

Do people still say ‘girl crush’ anymore? Well, we don’t care, because Rachael Finley is our girl crush and we’re proud of it. She recently let us into the house that she shares with her “good dude” and showed us around and let us ask a lot of probably annoying questions about all of her really cool stuff. Don’t worry Rachael, we didn’t steal anything. Promise.
