Yesterday was a fun-filled day for me. I met up with Ollie for brunch before we made our way to the Cohen Gallery to see Shia LaBeouf‘s #IAMSORRY art installation. After we had our fill of “art”, we made our way downtown to hang out for a bit with Caleb before I met up with Adriana for a dinner and movie date. I don’t usually pack my Saturdays with so much running around but it couldn’t be helped … I have too many great people in my life that I have to get out and see, you know? I ended my bizzy Saturday with a late night showing of RoboCop and I’m happy to say that I enjoyed the remake of the 1987 original very much. More »

Last night I enjoyed the best Valentine’s Day ever with some of my dearest friends as we enjoyed one of the most special concerts that we’ve ever seen. I met up with Ollie, Tamar, Rob, Caleb and Irene in downtown LA for a fun VDay dinner before we attended a concert by Spiritualized where the entirety of their masterpiece album Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating In Space was performed in concert. The show was the first ever performed at the newly opened Ace Hotel Theater in DTLA and it made for a stunning setting of a very special night. Ollie and I met up for drinks on the roof of the Ace Hotel which gave us a breathtaking view of the city. It was only the best night ever with people I love very much. More »
My plan was to go out and see a movie last night but I ended up staying closer to home so that I could catch up on some way overdue reading. I try to keep up with reading The New Yorker but, obvs, I can’t always find the time to read the issues when they are delivered and they tend to pile up. I figured I’d spend a bit of time reading an issue or two and the next thing I knew, my evening turned into night and it seemed like the better option to just keep reading. I got almost all caught up so I do feel accomplished. At midnight, the entire second season of House of Cards was released so I was able to starting watching those new eps (OMG!!!!!). Tonight, I have plans to meet up with some very good friends for a truly special concert event. Today is going to be a great day. More »
My Wednesday turned out to be a pretty fantastic one … even tho it didn’t really get off to the best start. For many, many months now, I have been trying to figure out a hang session with my friend Tamar’s parents — who I love entirely. I see them all the time at various parties and larger friend social gatherings and we always have the best time just talking. Tam’s mom Jackie and I have been talking about having a tea date together where we could spend time talking, just the two of us. I saw Jackie at Tam’s short film screening last Sunday and decided, enough is enough — we have to have our date. We decided to hang out Wednesday, fine, set. I get in my car to leave for our date and my car batter is completely dead. UGH. I’m not really good in situations like that so I was basically ready to just throw in the towel and call it a day. Thankfully, I managed to just rally, get the problem solved and I was able to get my car fixed, make my date with Jackie AND enjoy a really great night with both Tam’s mom and her dad Richard. More »
Yesterday I shared a super trailer promo video for the new reality TV series Chrisley Knows Best and I mentioned that I would be meeting the family at a press event here in LA last night. I gathered up Emma and Darion and we made our way to the Sunset Tower Hotel to meet the Crisleys and had only THE time of our lives. The event started with a little Q&A with patriarch Todd Chrisley, which members of the family chiming in here and there, and then the event was opened up so that anyone who wanted to meet the family could do so. Emma, who is a HUGE fan of the show already (having only watched the trailer I showed you yesterday), wasted no time and made a beeline for Todd, Julie and Savannah … and we all basically became BFF instantaneously.

Last night I was graciously invited to attend The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Oscar Nominees Night event at Spago in Beverly Hills so that I could hobnob and rub elbows with some of the actors who have been nominated for Academy Awards this year. Honestly, when I saw that Lupita Nyong’o was scheduled to attend, I was ALL in. The Nominees Night event is really a laid back, casual night where Oscar nominees can hang out and just enjoy one another’s company (as opposed to the Luncheon that happens earlier in the day which includes press conferences, interviews and the big Oscar Class Photo session). Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Cee Lo Green were the performers last night … and I had the best time ever. More »
As I mentioned a bit earlier, I met up with a group of friends last night to see the movie that absolutely EVERYONE is raving about — The Lego Movie. I had planned on seeing it Friday night with Emma and Josh but that plan didn’t work out so I figured I’d see it sometime soon. All weekend long, all I kept hearing from people is how good the movie really is. Darion invited a group of us to meet up with him to see the movie last night and I was able to make it. Based on what I heard, I knew the movie would be good … but I really wasn’t sure what to expect. The movie is so funny, so cute, so entertaining that I can see why everyone loves it so much. More »

Last night I met up with my friend Lisa for one of our semi-regular dinner catch-up sessions. She lives in NYC and is a very bizzy, very hard-working woman … so anytime she comes to LA, it’s always nice to get to spend any time with her. A few months ago she traveled to Iceland for the first time and I’ve been dying to hear about her trip. I was able to catch her up on my recent trip to Japan and, well, we had a great night together.
