Shenae Grimes: “You’ve got to meet this guy. He’s like the Michael Jackson of Japan. A talented, kind, and amazing person!” Holly brought Shenae to the Bud Suite at the Laker Game on Friday so we could chat about Shenae’s upcoming benefit to raise money for Japan. Shenae was flown out for a fashion show in Japan when the earthquakes hit and it was then […]


Inspiring AJ-#9

My friendship with AJ is best described by the Easter Mom and Dad Banicki visited and I threw a humongo Easter Sunday Funday for them.  I invited every close friend I had in Los Angeles up to our friend Canaan‘s house. We cooked up a storm, decorated eggs and played Easter with the Banickis.  AJ and his brother Blaise showed up with home cooked meatballs […]


Foster the People-#10

Foster the People. Why do I love them? It’s music that makes you happy (I read somewhere that it’s like Spoon and  MGMT mated to create FTP),  and I love finding something new before everyone else. Bonus – they have  an amazing name. Foster the People. Some synonyms of Foster-  promote, forward, cultivate, and encourage I’d like to think Foster the People means encouraging forward thinking […]


Inspiring #11-Maggie Mae

What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but anything that happens with my friend Maggie always stays in my heart. Maggie is one of my best friends. Maggie’s smile lights up a room. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Maggie not able to flash those sparkly whites. No matter how sad the situation, Maggie softens it with a smile. Sometimes I think Mom and […]

Jeff Vespa- #14

So I had this dream last night with lots of crazy things happening but randomly throughout people kept saying, “Talk to Jeff.” or, “Did u find Jeff?” I swear I woke up and thought I was going to meet someone named Jeff- I’ve been having really intuititive and even lucid dreams lately. Call me kooky, I know. It wasn’t until now that I put it […]


#15-My Beverly Hills Cab Driver

Yesterday night, taxi-ing my way to the Covergirl party, I hung up from chatting with Alana about my upcoming trip to El Salvador and my cabbie said, “Are you serious? I mean. are you really, seriously this happy all the time? You laugh and smile more than anyone I’ve ever met…and I have at least 25 new people in my cab a day.” I started […]


Inspiring #16 Liz

Liz Gemmill kicked my butt into gear for 2011… Liz is a subtle inspiration. Why? Liz, being the friend I’ve known LONGEST in LA – we met interning at Conan O’Brian 10 years ago – well she just knew I needed a workout plan this year. Liz was not privy to the fact that I ate pizza and pasta and nachos with Alina yesterday nor […]


Sh*t My Grandma Says – #17

It’s a Wonderful life with Grandma Banicki 5 reasons I want to be like Grandma…..exemplified this Christmas: 1. Grandma makes you feel good. I walked through Mom and Dad’s door – home for the holiday, no makeup, and bloated from the plane.  “Angela, oh my gosh. You look so pretty. You’ve lost weight. You’re so thin!” 2. She enjoys and appreciates life. “Oh kids, your […]


Adam Banicki-#18

Adam Banicki is master #18 -the Doc Master. Adam is the littlest Banicki and yet the biggest too. 24 years young, Adam stands at 6’4. Spending the last three days with Adam, I’ve noticed that we seem to be reversing roles at an alarming rate. I was always the workaholic nerd of the family: Geek. Book reader. Salutatorian. Teacher’s Pet. Ok, that may be going too […]
