NFL A Crucial Catch

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and since 2009 the NFL has decided to get involved.

The NFL has partnered with the American Cancer Society. All the apparel worn by players and coaches along with special balls and coins will be auctioned off. Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society. The NFL “Crucial Catch” program is focused on the importance of annual screenings, especially for women over 40.

Live, Love, Laugh: Celebrating Breast Cancer Survivors and Research at the Living in Pink Luncheon

Living in Pink Luncheon

Last Friday at the Fairmont Hotel women gathered from all over Washington DC to celebrate Breast Cancer Survivors and Research at the Living in Pink Luncheon. After the fun shopping and mingling at the many various venders there was the luncheon. There was a lovely bell sound that announced the start of lunch and everyone headed into the ballroom, draped in pink. The gift bags were placed on every table and EBeauty’s Wig Exchange display card was placed in every bag along with items from other sponsors. Salmon and shrimp was served and the waiters were generous with the wine. For desert everyone was given a sorbet cake type thing with a breast cancer ribbon on top.

The best part of the luncheon is hands down the speakers. The beginning of the lunch started off with Greta Kruez from ABC7 talking about her morning. It just so happened that the Living in Pink Luncheon was on the same day as the Susan G. Komen 3 day race. She had spent her morning interviewing women who were walking in the pouring rain for the Susan G. Komen 3 day race. A women who she interviewed said that she had no problem walking in the rain because it was like “pink sunshine”. Councilman Jack Adams was there and he talked about his experience with breast cancer. He lost his wife a few years back to breast cancer, when his three children were four years old. He talked about being a single father and raising his children while trying to raise awareness for breast cancer.

All in all it was a very touching event. Women from all walks of life were brought together to raise money for breast cancer research and to continue the efforts of Living of Pink in bringing awareness to the people.

District Sample Sale: The Season’s Most Fashionable Charitable Event!

District Sample Sale

Last night in the basement of an office building on the corner of 19th and M street in downtown DC, the most exciting fashion event of the season was going on. To the untrained eye and casual bystanders on the street this would go un-noticed, but to those in the know this was the place to be. General Admission opened at 6:30pm and as EBeauty’s re-con team headed over it was obvious that this was not going to be your average shopping experience.

Once you gave your name and received a wrist band, a line of people direct you towards an elevator where a nice man brings you down to the basement level. Who doesn’t love an elevator operator a la Titanic? But it is when you get off the elevator that the magic happens. You are released into a completely concrete word filled with designer clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. There is champagne and food from local restaurants. Everything is over 50% off, but you have to be in a vigilant state of mind because it can get crowded and hectic. It is everything you want and expect from a shopping extravaganza.

The best part is that 100% of the proceeds are donated to a different charity every year. This year the charity supported was WEAVE, Women empowered against violence. WEAVE engages the metropolitan Washington DC community in the elimination of intimate partner abuse and other forms of gender-based violence through empowering, innovative and holistic services.  Their holistic services model combines legal representation, counseling and case management so that clients can concurrently address their legal, emotional, and practical needs. Employing this holistic program ensures services are readily accessible and coordinated between staff attorneys, pro bono attorneys,  licensed clinical social workers, mental health professionals and client advocates. Through the holistic services model, WEAVE provides clients with the full range of tools necessary to achieve safety and self-sufficiency.

On its eighth year now, Michele Conley and the Living in Pink crew sure know how to do it up right. Every year they host an annual Living in Pink luncheon and boutique.

They fill the place with fabulous retail venders from different local stores all in support of breast cancer research. Everyone gets the chance to buy a little something.

The proceeds go to raising money towards the Living in Pink mission, helping to find a cure for breast cancer so that the next generation will not have to go through the emotional and physical pain of breast cancer surgery and treatment that today’s generation does. One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Living in Pink was founded in 2004 by Michele Conley a two time breast cancer survivor. For more information on the Living in Pink luncheon and boutique, check out their website at:

5 Signs of Domestic Violence

EBeauty jshore

Ron and Sammie from MTV’s Jersey Shore started off as a happy couple but it went downhill quickly.

Domestic Violence is a serious problem affecting women in today’s world. One of the biggest problems surrounding domestic violence is getting the woman or in some cases the man to admit that he is being abused. Domestic Violence is not something to take sitting down. Here are some easy signs to look out for in cases of domestic violence.

1. Your partner hurts you or threatens to hurt you.

Physical abuse is never okay. If your partner is hurting you physically or emotionally than that is an immediate sign that you are in an abusive relationship. If your partner is threatening you than you need to take notice and make changes in your life.

2. Your partner destroys your belongings.

If your partner takes his anger out on your belongings than you have to call it quits. You are obviously in a very toxic, Ron and Sammie style (please refer to Jersey Shore) relationship. The only cure is total separation.

3. Your partner humiliates and treats you so bad you’re embarrassed for your friends and family to be around.

If you are with someone that makes it impossible for you to enjoy being with your friends and family than that is an immediate red flag. The person you are with should make you a better person and make you feel happy no matter who else you are around.

4. You partner controls every aspect of your life.

Your life should only be controlled by one person. You. The moment you let another person tell you when you can go places, who you can spend time with, and where you can go is the the moment that you have lost control of your life. If your partner is controlling your life than you need to get out and take control because this is a very active form of abuse.

5. You partner acts overly jealous and possessive.

If your partner really loved you than he or she would know that there was nothing to worry about and they would not be overly jealous or possessive. When your partner does this it can cause tension because they always think the worst of you when you are doing nothing wrong. If your partner is showing signs of this than it is time to cut them out of your life. Another classic reason why Ron and Sammie should never be together.

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month!

EBeautySeptember marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It is the start of school for many people and the time for people to come home from the beach and return to their real lives. It is also National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Ovarian Cancer is one of the most deadly cancers for women. This month make sure to sport lots of teal in support of ovarian cancer awareness! Here we have 4 symptoms that have been shown to lead to ovarian cancer.


1. Feeling Bloated

2. Having Pelvic or Abdominal Pain

3. Having Problems Eating or Becoming Full Quickly

4. Having Urinary Urgency or Frequency

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are not singular to ovarian cancer and thus make it hard to diagnose. If any of these problems last for a long period of time than you should see a doctor, especially if you have a family history of ovarian cancer. Remember to rock your teal throughout the month of September in support of Ovarian Cancer Awareness!

Do you know of any other symptoms that lead to ovarian cancer? Please let us know so that we can spread the word!

5 Reasons To Try Yoga Today!

EBeautyHave you been telling yourself that you would join a gym for the last 6 months? You are not alone. Lots of people swear to themselves that they will start working out…tomorrow. They just need the proper motivation. Yoga may be the answer to your problem. It is the perfect balance between exercise and relaxation. Still not convinced? Here are a few more reasons why yoga is right for you!

1. It increases your flexibility and lessens your chance of injury

Every pose works a specific muscle which increases your flexibility. Every time you work the poses, your chance of injury goes down as you are building your strength and flexibility in the muscle. If you are naturally clumsy than this would be a natural draw.

2. It reduces stress

Yoga is known to help soothe the mind and help you empty your thoughts. It allows you to just focus on the poses. The ability to erase all your troubles is a major reason why so many people love yoga. If you live a very stressful life then yoga might just be the cure to your problems.

3. It helps you lose weight

Another great thing about yoga is that although at first it may seem pretty easy, each pose actually takes a lot of muscle work. You have to hold each pose for long periods of time and after a while you start to lose weight. It is a very healthy way to exercise if you aren’t looking for something more exhaustive on the cardio side.

4. It helps improve muscle balance and stability

When you first start yoga, you may feel slightly unbalanced. After a short time of doing yoga you will quickly notice that your balance and stability improves drastically as the poses work on your core muscles. This is another draw for the clumsy by nature.

5. It is good for your heart. 

Yoga has been proven to decrease blood pressure, increase circulation, and reduce your pulse rate. The more yoga you do the more you are improving your fitness and reducing your chance for cardiovascular disease. If you have a history of heart disease in your family than yoga is a great preventative action to take!
