I have to have it: Amway light-up lip gloss

How cool is this?

My friend Chrissy was in town from San Francisco. Before we went to Lucali, we were at an event at the Darby Downstairs. When she whipped out her lip gloss in the darkened club, I was impressed.

Chrissy always looks fabulous so I was expecting her lip gloss to be Chanel, or maybe Bobbi Brown. Nope.

“Amway!” she revealed. You can buy light-up lipgloss (and other items) from her here

Note: not a sponsored post. Just a cool tip I wanted to share.

Twitter Spotlight: Diandra Asbaty

When I say the words ‘professional bowler,’ what comes to mind?

I doubt you pictured my friend Diandra Asbaty, but a pro bowler is exactly what she is.

Diandra grew up in a family full of bowlers, and both she and her sister bowled collegiately. Through bowling, she even met her now-husband chef John Asbaty. Expect their adorable toddler son Madden (cutie!) to carry on the tradition.

When she isn’t training, competing and coaching, you’ll find Diandra hanging out with her family and enjoying Chicago.

Candace came to visit

Having house guests in cities like New York can be challenging. I don’t have a guest room, and on weekends, I’m the laziest person alive.

But there are some friends I’m always happy to have visit. Candace is one of them. We had a lovely catch-up weekend and celebrated her acceptance to graduate school.

We ate bacon doughnuts – and lots of other things – at Traif.

Twitter spotlight: Eliza Orlins

You know her from Survivor. I know her thanks to a fun gathering Ashley Spivey hosted to watch The Bachelor.

When I met her, I found Eliza completely intimidating and told her so. I’d be eaten alive on a show like Survivor and her real life job as an attorney is hard core too. She’s a badass (but also a sweetheart).

Without further ado, @eorlins is in the Twitter Spotlight.
