Fun fact: So one night I was at Bestia (the #1 American/ Italian resty in LA in Mai opinion), and who sits at the table beside me but the Award Winning, breathtaking, always glowing Gwyneth Paltrow. And rather than die over her shoes and handbag, Mai nosy lil' eyes were pasted on what she ordered to stay in that lean mean shape. (PS. It was 2 entrees of pasta, one creamy, and dessert.) So obvi when our Goop Goddess recently launched her cook book, It's All Good, with her I-Woke-Up-Like-This face, I dove into the pages to see WTH I need to eat to glow like Gwen. This Chili Thai burger recipe had me from the start because she incorporated Anthony Bourdain and Mai fave...fish sauce???
Mai friend Robin (best mom and luxury handbag shopper out there btw) and I decided to try out the recipe this weekend. Good god....it's become the best chicken burger I've ever tried. Juicy, spicy, flavor overload. So of course, I had to share with Mai fam, YOU guys! Post on your socials if you cook these up and tag me. She calls for gluten free buns but Robin used Hawaiian rolls and I think they tasted magical I would luv to hear how yours came out!
Gwyneth’s Chicken Burgers, Thai Style
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30-60 minutes
• 1 pound ground chicken (preferably dark meat)
• 2 garlic cloves, very finely minced
• 2/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped
• 2 shallots, very finely minced
• 1 tsp. very finely minced red chili (or more or less, however hot you like it)
• 2 tsp. fish sauce
• ½ tsp. coarse sea salt
• 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
• 2 tbsp. canola, grape seed or safflower oil
1. Thoroughly mix the chicken with the garlic, cilantro, shallots, red chili, fish sauce, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 4 burgers, each about ¾-inch thick.
2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Rub each burger on both sides with a bit of oil and grill for about 8 minutes on the first side and another 5 minutes on the second, or until nicely marked and firm to the touch.
The worst part about wearing eye makeup, specifically glitter, is that it can easily crease or cake up, and it would not be ideal for a daytime talk show. But I do have a 3 tips on how to prevent this from happening with eye looks.

Mai AMAZING stylist Daniel Musto's tips on how to get this look:
1. Find a few different "ugly sweaters"
2. Cut squares of fabric out of the sweaters. (The squares make it easier to wrap them around the natural curves of the accessories you're covering.)
- TIP: Cover the fabric with "anti-fray" spray before cutting for the best results
3. Attach the fabric to a pair of old boots (or anything else you want to make "ugly") using spray glue.
P.S. - Wear gloves or you will end up looking like you have sweater skin.Read More

I’m fascinated by unique looks. Perfect, symmetric, flawless faces? Bo-oo-oring. I'm attracted to finding those unexpected features that make peeps memorable. (Still getting used to Mai bunyon 36 years later.) And isn't it funny how we always want we don't have? Me? I've always wanted freckles. Name em- Punky Brewster, Pippi Longstocking... I was that lil girl who took Mama Mai's black Maybelline eyeliner pencil (remember these?) and drew polka dotted "freckles" all over Mai face. And yes, she'd be the first to point out, "You making da dot too big. Like chicken pock."
So you can imagine the happy happy joy joy when Uzmee and I discovered a pen for brows that are freckle-painting-perf. Seriously..get that sun-"kissed" face ready! Don't believe me? Click play, like, right now.
There's a good and a bad to being a "Style Expert" in Mai life. On one end, it's fun to constantly reinvent myself and learn to appreciate Mai bod more by experimenting with different silhouettes. On another end, I also get a reality dose of exactly what a normal, everyday dude from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania thinks... because I'm married to one. I forget that to Freddy, I'm his wife. The chick that goes to Trader Joes with him, fights over the last truffle salted french fry, and wears his chonies to bed when mine are all in the wash. And even though I don't condone for one second to dress for anyone else but yourself, I do find it interesting to review the things a dude may find...distracting. For any women watching this with an expressive dad, uncle, bro, boyfy, hubby, etc in your life, agree or disagree? What do you love wearing that he just doesn't get?? Comment below!Read More
We all have those days when we're panicking to get ready. We went to the E-40 concert last night, woke up an hour and 27 minutes too late and don't have time to do our makeup the right way.
This happens way too often to me, which is why I've actually become a certified make-up in the car professional. Okay, maybe not certified but I'm pretty darn close.
Do you have any accident-prone makeup tips for applying in the car? Tell me in the comments!
