VIEWERS CHOICE AWARDS:
Markette and I were honored to be presented the 2010 Viewers Choice Award in the short programming category on DCTV for our work that we produced for The Traveling Talk Show. Over 14,000 people voted online, and we were so excited to have Kojo Nnamdi from WAMU 88.5 "The Kojo Nnamdi Show "present us our award for best short programming! It's been an amazing year. And yes we are changing it up and we are now DC ON HEELS, but we will still bring you the best that DC has to offer. So please become a FAN on FACEBOOK and thanks to everyone who supports us on our journey. We can't wait to bring IT on this year!
MARKETTE AND VANESSA ARE HEADED BACK TO SCHOOL:
Markette and I met at American University while we were both getting our master's degree in Interactive Journalism. And we loved school so much that we are deciding to go back. Well not that school though. It's trapeze school! (Which I have a feeling will be way more fun) Yep we're feeling adventurous and were going to give it a go. M's been on the worlds longest floorless roller coaster, and I have been skydiving.. so this is right up our alley. Has anybody tried this before? Should we be scared? I've always wanted to be in the circus so this just might be my chance.

I have been blogging my favorite shoe picks each week. I have an obsession with stilettos and so does Markette so it really is appropriate that we are now named DC on Heels. So without further adieu here is this weeks heel of the week. Available at ZAPPOS

I didn't want to leave the guys out with my picks , because shoes are just as important for men as they are for women. In fact you can tell a lot from a man just by his shoes. So guys no Seinfield sneakers allowed. Only Jerry can pull that off and he gets points because he is hilarious. So unless you're just as funny. It's simply not acceptable.
