White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Weekend Wrap Up #4: Birthday, Graduation & Capitol File magazine Party at the Carnegie Library

…and so the weekend continued into Saturday evening. Do NOT underestimate the value of a good power disco nap. Those kids in the ’80′s knew what was up. After that and a quick (as in did I even do it?) shower, new dress and heels, hair to the side and red Terry lipstick applied, it [...]

Unleash the Hounds! Fashion For Paws Kicks Off at The Jefferson Hotel

May the best man and woman win. The competition is fierce, the playing field is feisty.  With only 50 fundraising models allowed to walk this year because the amount each has to raise to even step foot onto the stage is now $5,000, up by a few thousand from last year, these otherwise civilized animal [...]

Streets of Georgetown Opens

Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Launches “Top Dog” Contest

While I am not lucky enough to have my own four-legged friend at home (let’s just say I can barely keep a plant alive) I do have the good fortune of having a business partner and friend who has not one, not two, but three rescue pups which are the most adorable, loving, affectionate, hilarious [...]

Arlington Capital View’s Next Top Dog

My Pacific Punch business partner/friend/L.A. host/owner of three (count’em three) rescue dogs, Lindsay, said to me the other day as we were walking Lexi, Brodie and Holly, “I don’t know why people refer to some men as ‘dogs’.  They use that term in a derogatory way-you know it’s meant to be an insult. Dogs are [...]

Thousands Race for the Cure on the National Mall

Thousands Race for the Cure on the National Mall

Let me be clear.  I am not a morning person.  A civilized time to do a proper sun salutation for me falls after 8am.  However, our Once Upon A Prom co-founder and chairman Ashley Taylor had formed a team for the Race for the Cure, so I decided I would be a part of it.  [...]
