So much to tell! I hardly know where to begin other than with saying, I eat too much when I work from home!!! Okay, that's out of the way. Thanks to all of the new Butterflies who joined MyWorkButterfly.com as a result of the Nick Lachey Auction that Butterfly is currently hosting. What about Nick Lachey you ask? Well, the handsomely sweet Nick Lachey is currently being auctioned off LIVE on MyWorkButterfly.com. For Real!! Now is your chance to bid on a Dream Date with Nick with a portion of the proceeds going to VH1 Save The Music Foundation. You can win this Dream Date (heavenly if you ask me) in LA, roundtrip tickets for TWO via JetBlue Airways to LA, a $500 shopping spree to Club Monaco, hotel accommodations for one night in LA and a gift bag from us! This is your chance to truly make a difference... to keep music education in America's schools. Please bid, tweet, post on facebook, blog or scream from your rooftop to help us announce this LIVE auction! We thank you ... the school children will thank you.
Next, I'd like to share a bit about this little interview we had with the fabulous Dina Manzo of Real Housewives of NJ. Who doesn't love a good housewife? She was sweet and soft spoken and even admitted to feeling bad for fellow cast mate and mom, Danielle Staub for having lost her childhood to abuse. Dina promises we are in for another fabulous season as she wrestles with the decision to leave her hands-on position as Event Planner in favor of her charity, Project Ladybug.
Diana Ross, friend and Publicist of Dina's, is hosting a benefit at her Town and Country Apocathery Fine Cosmetics boutique in Ridgewood, NJ on November 6. We do hope those moms in the NJ area will join us as we help to raise money for another good cause~ St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and children living with illness. Visit MyWorkButterfly.com
Event's section for details.
Speaking of housewives, Jill Zarin of Real Housewives of NYC will be Butterfly's featured Mom Mentor during October. My big partner, Terry, had the pleasure of interviewing Jill in her Hampton's home this past summer, while meeting mom Gloria and other friends/members of Jill's outrageous circle. Some not so famous housewives are to be recognized on Butterfly as well. Meet Iris Shamus, creator of Allermates.com
