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 […]

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.

I need one of your helpers soon! Maybe […]

#21 – Ladies of Contempo

“Manicure Pedicure?” I missed the sound of Diane’s voice saying those words over and over as customers walk into Contempo Nails. I used to be a Contempo regular. I love it there because Diane, the owner, remembers me. I can spontaneously show up, and she makes me feel like I’m the most important person there. As I watch her, I see she does this with […]

#22- Joy Highlights

Joy does my highlights at the Alex Roldan Salon in the London Hotel in West Hollywood. She adds a bit of joy to my dirty blond hair. Every time I leave her, I tell her I feel cleaner:) Joy was my inspiration today. She is probably 80 lbs, 60 or so years old, and wears her blond hair in two mini pigtail buns….always. Today Joy had […]

JJ is my brother and one of my best friends.  JJ inspires me everyday and even more so reminds me to be inspired.  I decided to have a little fun and use some […]
