The Front Row at Bethesda Row May 17-19

p5rn7vb

The Front Row at Bethesda Row is the one event I look forward to every year! This event holds a truly special place in my heart in part because Barbara Martin, one of the principals of Brandlink DC invited me to the very first event four years ago in 2009. Celebrity guest and fashion designer Christian Siriano was honored in a pre-fashion show party complete with signature cocktails and endless hor d’ouerves from one of my favorite restaurants in Bethesda, Redwood. It was significant because I had just had my first child a year prior to this event and I hadn’t lost all the baby weight. Not only was I feeling insecure about my appearance, I was battling a mild case of postpartum depression and had just about dropped out of the DC fashion scene for good. This was the first event I had attended in a year since I had my daughter. One of the fashion photographers covering the event, Betsy Lowther of Fashion is Spinach asked me if I’d pose for a picture. That picture ended up in the Washington Post Express Newspaper and Fashion Washington Magazine. This event gave me the confidence I needed to “get back in the game”  and inspired me to continue to focus on my family and my physical fitness. The event reminded me of what a great city Washington DC is and gave me a renewed faith to pursue my dreams in acting and modeling and eventually begin blogging. You see, Moms can do it all.  And of course, I thank Barbara Martin of BrandlinkDC for encouraging me to see the light.

This will be my fourth year attending the event. And I’ve been shopping for the perfect outfits to wear to both the DC Premiere of the fashion documentary “God Save My Shoes” and to (one of my heroes), Andy Cohen’s book signing of his newly released memoir “Most Talkative”.

The Front Row is an event that’s free and open to the public! You don’t want to miss it! You may just find yourself inspired to make things happen too! May 17-19th. Check out www.bethesdarow.com for details.

Dream Big, Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi

 

 

 

 

Olympic Figure Skating Champion and Dancing With the Stars Winner Kristi Yamaguchi has written a new children’s book (Dream Big, Little Pig) and has made her way to the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia) to read from her book and offer book signings and also autographs on your ice skates.

We were able to attend her book reading at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in Downtown DC where Kristi read the story to at least 40 children and over 100 parents.

 Dream Big, Little Pig is a sweet story about courage and perseverance. The story is about Poppy, a pig who tries on one thing after another (singing, modeling, ballet). She discovers that she’s not really that good at any of those things. Her mother, grandparents and best friends do their best to keep her spirits high by encouraging her to continue to dream big. After following her heart, Poppy realizes that she’s able to live her dream after all.
