Lot 48: who would be in your entourage?

July 29, 2015

who would be in your entourage?

we have all seen taylor swift's bad blood music video, right?  that girl is sooo petty.  that girl treats the whole world like her own high school and puts friends against each other.  kendall is dating justin, and justin broke her bff selena's heart, so now taylor is out to get kendall! the drama!! all she does is put her friends against each other if they step even a little out her well instructed lines.  
Taylor Swift Brought Olivia Benson Out On Stage
in her music video, she has her whole entourage as cast members.  cara, selena, and a bunch of other people i don't know who are my age but act like they are 12 so i pay them no mind and therefore, have little idea who they are.  
but it got me thinking.  who would be in my entourage if i were a celebrity? who would i pick?  so i put my imagination to use and picked celebs who i would want to be friends with, but as i look at this list, i am not sure they would all get along....

i think it's safe to say that everyone wants to be friends with jennifer lawrence.  right? don't we all?  she is so down to earth, so goofy, so funny, i would be hysterically laughing the entire time i was around her.  who wouldn't want to be friends with her? 

i find nicki minaj just fascinating.   i have absolutely zero idea what she is saying in any of her songs, but i think she is an incredible performer and i love how powerful she is.  i'm not sure if i could actually be friends with her or if i would just shrink in the background and watch in awe as she worked.  i've read so many interviews of hers and she is just an incredible woman.

anna kendrick.  another duhhhh.  who wouldn't want to be friends with her?  i love that she is multi talented and her instagram posts are always so funny, i think she would be such a fun person to hang out with.  she's who i would call to just go off to europe with on vacay or to dinner with or whatever. 

aubrey plaza would be the friend that would balance me out and kind of be the anti-lauren.  she is a little out there and i think would push me to be more out spoken and more daring.  have you seen her in interviews?  she is really, really funny.  she is who i would call if i wanted to do something outrageously fun. 

mindy kaling.  again, i'm not sure if i could actually be friends with her or just shrink in the corner.  i think i would just corner her and say "tell me everything about comedy writing!!" and not let her leave until i felt i had soaked up all her wisdom and awesomeness.  and then just about as she was leaving i would corner her again and say "wait! but how do you be funny all the time in real life?!" and then she would just call security and put a restraining order on me, so i think the friendship would be short-lived. 

khloé kardashian is my favorite kardashian and i want her around to just keep me laughing and to keep me grounded.  i know that sounds weird, a kardashian to keep me grounded? but i think out of all of them, she is most level headed and i would want her in my circle and she is who i would want to call if i was having a crisis.  

and now i want to introduce you to someone who i hope would be in my entourage in real life: ash from the nashvillian.  i asked her to be my friend after i read one of her weekend watches posts, and i realized i found a blogger who loved movies as much as me.  and then i asked her to be my friend and that we had i recapped new movies that i found too and here we are.  ash is awesome, she not only loves movies, but she also works in the music industry!!  

Tell us a little bit about what we will find on your blog.  Life? Recipes? Fitness?
My blog has a little bit of everything. While it mostly focuses on food, fashion, and fun in and around Nashville, TN, I also tend to write a lot of posts about my travels outside of Nashville. On top of that, I love sharing recipes and movie recommendations. But, if I had to pick ONE thing that my blog focuses on the most, it's food - whether it's food from restaurants or food I made myself, I love food, and I love pictures of food. :) Fashion is a close second. And movies are every Friday!

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Ever since I visited Alcatraz, I've had a little bit of an obsession with Frank Morris. For those of you who don't know the story of the escape from Alcatraz, it goes a little something like this: Alcatraz prison was deemed inescapable. Then, along came Frank Morris and the Anglin brothers who chipped away at the wall in their cells with spoons stolen from the dining hall. They made a hole big enough for them to climb through and escaped the island using rafts they made out of rain jackets. No one ever heard from them since. There are a lot of theories that they drown, but there are also theories that they survived. And me, being the weirdo that I am, wants to believe they survived. I know I'm rooting for the bad guy here, but that just makes for a much better story! Anyway, I find the whole thing fascinating, and if Frank Morris (the brains behind the operation) really is alive out there somewhere, I think that would make for a really interesting lunch discussion. Ha!

Describe your perfect date (april 29.  not too hot, not too cold. all you’d need is a light jacket. we will be bestie if you can tell me what i’m quoting ;)) - Miss Congeniality!
A REALLY good dinner and a REALLY good movie. Yeah...my husband thinks I'm the least romantic person in the world. :-P

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Or, what is your favorite place you have traveled to?
I grew up with a father who is afraid of flying, so all of my childhood vacations were road trips. That means I have never been out of the country! (with the exception of the Bahamas via a cruise when I was 5.) So, I pretty much want to go EVERYWHERE! #1 on my list is an eco-safari in Kenya. We love animals in our household, especially elephants, and to see them in the wild would be incredible! (This is actually what we are planning for our belated honeymoon trip) My #2 is Paris (for the french cuisine) and southern France. And #3 is London (because it's London!...and, Les Miserables, of course)...and The Maldives, Hawaii, Alaska, Australia...I could go on and on and on. I want to see it ALL!

if you could give advice to other bloggers, what would it be?
Never compromise your integrity. Whenever I receive offers from companies who are looking for advertising or product reviews, I usually end up denying far more offers than I accept. Sure, it's tempting to collect a few bucks for a project (especially since blogging can be very time consuming and it's nice to see a return every once in a while), but if it's not a product that you feel comfortable endorsing, then don't. I want my blog to be a trustworthy source of recommendations, so I will never tell my readers to try a product that I'm not overly fond of.

Who is your celebrity crush?
Jake Gyllenhaal.

thanks ash for being on the blog today! who would be in your celebrity entourage?


  1. What a great post idea! I've got to think who would be in my entourage......the first two that come to mind are Gwen Stefani and Amy Schumer.
