beThe 20th annual OCRFA Super Saturday was such a success! The famous ‘shop till you drop’ event took place this past Saturday, July 29th from 12-6pm in Watermill at Nova’s Ark. The VIP hour was from 12-1pm; general admission commenced at 1pm. This year’s event was hosted by Kelly Ripa, Donna Karan, Gabby Karan de Felice, Molly Sims, and Rachel Zoe, and presented by QVC. Over 2,000 people attended including supporters and their families, designers, celebrities, editors, media, and fashion lovers. Super Saturday raised over $3 million for OCRFA’s ovarian cancer research and support programs! I am honored to once again attend this stunning event and help contribute and spread the word about such an important cause. Donna Karan and Liz Tilberis, the late and beloved Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar and President of OCRF created the event in 1998. Donna Karan has sponsored and hosted the event since its founding, and Kelly Ripa has been a co-host since 2004.
This all-day event is one of the most organized Hamptons summer events. The event was very well-attended despite the crisp bite in the air and anticipation of rain. Thankfully, the wind did not last long and we did not receive any rain during the event. It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day during the last three hours. I arrived promptly just in time for the 12pm VIP entrance. There were already at least two hundred people on line eager and ready to get in and start shopping. Once we all entered, I first stopped by the Conair Beauty Bar, grabbed a refreshment, and then headed in to the big tent for some shopping.
St. Jude’s third annual Hope in the Hamptons took place this past Saturday, July 15th in Watermill at the home of Sue and Dave Birdsall. The Birdsall Family honored their family member, Drew, who was diagnosed with leukemia in June of 2013. After three and a half years of treatment at St. Jude, Drew is cancer free and back to being a kid again. “We know that St. Jude could not continue without the wonderful people [here tonight]. We cannot express how much this means to all of us.” -The Birdsall Family. Before St. Jude opened in 1962, the survival rates for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) were 4%. Today, the survival rate is 94%.
The event brought together over 500 guests to celebrate and support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Hamptons Haute once again beautifully catered the event, serving delectable passed hor d’oeuvres, wine, cocktails, and dinner. View Post

Cheers to the upcoming summer! I am thrilled to reintroduce my readers to one of my favorite child-friendly beverage companies, Tickle Water. My favorite characteristic of Tickle Water is that it is perfect for small hands, meaning that it will be ideal for my daughter to bring with her to school and activities. Her favorite is the watermelon and green apple. She calls the Watermelon flavored water “owl bubbles.” It is so cute when she laughs after each sip. We enjoy Tickle Water together during the afternoon while at our pool. The size is also compact and lightweight for bringing to the beach. The tickly taste is so refreshing!
