What’s new with you, @AbbyDraper?

Finally – a new blog post! And it’s a fun one. A Twitter Spotlight update.

When I featured Abby Draper here back in the day, we hadn’t yet met. Fortunately we fixed that this year and you can read about it here. One of these days, she might even get me to SoulCycle. Maybe.


When Jennifer told me it has been two years since my Twitter Spotlight I didn’t believe her. When I re-read the piece and sat down to write this update, I actually am bemused at what has happened in what feels like such a short amount of time.

First, for all of the single men reading this, I have gotten way hotter and way funnier and way more single. Wink, wink.


Now that that’s out of the way – here are seven highlights from my life since I last contributed. When I write “listicles” I try to stick with seven because five is too short and ten is too long, in case you were wondering about the random number. Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Laura McKittrick aka @xxGreenwichGirl

Until I asked the Greenwich Girl to do a Twitter Spotlight, I didn’t even know her name! Meet Laura McKittrick.

Laura has been very busy establishing the Greenwich Girl brand including a magazine and blog. Now it’s her turn to stand front and center.

What’s new with you, Erin Sharoni?

I have been eager to feature an Erin Sharoni update for some time now. After all, she was one of the first to say yes to being in the Twitter Spotlight.

Erin now lives in beautiful Miami and has lots of updates to share.

1) Apparently everyone’s slept on the fact that I’ve been DJing since long before I was on TV and certainly long before Aoki began throwing cakes on people or anyone made more than a grand per gig. If I were to date myself, I might even say… since 1999. With real vinyl. Still have my Technics 1200s at home.

Twitter Spotlight: Chris Illuminati

For starters, yes, that’s his real name.

I'm a glasses half full kind of guy

Chris Illuminati is an author (books here!), editor, comedian, Post It abuser, ‘permanent roommate’ and dad. However you decide to consume his work, Chris will leave you laughing. He cracks me up and that’s a damn good reason to feature him in this week’s Twitter Spotlight.

Twitter Spotlight: Sabina Hitchen

How could I not feature someone whose professional title is Chief Excitement Officer?! That’s Sabina aka @SabinaKnows.


Sabina, co-founder of Tin Shingle, is my Brooklyn neighbor. I admire her enthusiasm for entrepreneurship – hers and that of others. Here’s your chance to get to know Sabina.

Twitter Spotlight: Nikki Rappaport

I’m excited to feature Nikki Rappaport of Cupcakes for Breakfast in this week’s Twitter Spotlight. Nikki is friends with many of my DC favorites including @Tammy so it seems inevitable that we’ll meet someday. Hopefully soon!

While a lot of Nikki’s blog posts and tweets are about food, I also really like her home decor aesthetic. Don’t miss a peek at her cheerful apartment (tour here).

Twitter Spotlight: Joanne Ross

Joanne is one of the nicest people I’ve never met. If you’re on Twitter, you know what I mean. Twitter friends are real.

Joanne, a lover of corgis and the Detroit Pistons, and I first connected thanks to NBA Twitter, but now she feels like a real life buddy.

One day soon, I hope, we’ll get to meet. For now, we’ll make do with a Twitter Spotlight.


OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@JoannePistonFan: Dog lover, sports fan, and I love when people are able to laugh at themselves when something goes wrong.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@JoannePistonFan: Pragmatic.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@JoannePistonFan: My friends allow me to feel okay being myself–my weird, WEIRD self–, and will listen to anything from a serious rant to me giggling like a fool over an episode of Archer.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@JoannePistonFan: I love the thought of an evening with my husband and dog, good food, and watching a Detroit sports team win.


OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@JoannePistonFan: Being stuck in traffic.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@JoannePistonFan: Arya Stark from Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@JoannePistonFan: Fajitas and coffee, but not together. I would prefer a margarita with fajitas.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@JoannePistonFan: My iPhone, lip balm, DVR, coffeemaker, and does my dog count as a thing? It feels bizarre calling my dog a thing, so I will add my Pistons hat.
