Remembering Mamie

Former CNN reporter Elizabeth Manresa and her husband Teddy Eynon hosted Monaco Nights to benefit Mamie’s Mile. 10% of the night’s sales at Bloomingdale’s Chevy Chase went to the organization that helps Childrens Hospital. Mamie’s Mile honors the memory of Elizabeth and Teddy’s beautiful daughter Mamie Grace. Mamie passed away at only 4 months following a brave fight and complications from heart surgery.

REGISTER: Mamie’s Mile May 14th in DC

A media power group came out to support the kick-off for the annual Mamie’s Mile walk on May 14th. Shopping for the cause: Event co-chairs Amy & Bret Baier, CNN’s beautiful and expecting Dana Bash, CNN’s Ed Henry & Brianna Keilar, ABC7′s Rebecca Cooper, Greta Kreuz and Suzanne Kennedy, FOX5′s Laura Evans, Dr. Alex Naini, Pamela Sorensen and Dana Perino.  Visit Revamp.com for more photos from the night.


Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.

Fashion 4 Paws exhibit kicks off FotoWeekDC!

Previous Fashion 4 Paws Runway Shows return…and this time in photos! More than a dozen of the photographers from the past year’s shows featured their photos at a special exhibit in L2 Lounge of Georgetown. The event launched November FotoWeekDC

The blown-up photos were available for purchase as well as F4P Runway Show Super Model Calenders. Guests voted on their top three favorite photos – models featured in the photos received a $100 gift card from the Gilt Groupe. And it wouldn’t be F4P without some furry friends; adoptable dogs from the Washington Humane Society also joined the party.
