**This Giveaway Is Over, Thanks To All Who Entered!
Today on Oprah, they are re-airing the show where Oprah goes to Telluride and interviews Tom Cruise in his home. Some of you may have seen it back in May when it first aired, some maybe not, but the interesting thing about this episode is more than just Tom or his house or what he says about that last time he saw Oprah. It’s also about some sweet little ladybug shoes that Oprah notices in the Cruise mudroom, right upon entering their house. She comments on the tiny cute shoes, Tom remarks that ladybugs are Suri’s favorite, and they move on.
From this small mention, came a huge wave of press and demand for those little ladybug shoes. The exciting part is, my friend and all of our blog sistah, Katja Presnal, was the one to give Suri those shoes! Katja used to live in Colorado, and through a mutual friend was able to give the Cruise family a big gift basket from her upscale children’s boutique, Skimbaco. The Ladybug shoes were a part of that basket, and the rest is history.
After that small mention and huge public response, Katja started her own PR consulting business called Ladybug Landings, around the ladybug concept, and how “luck lands briefly, be ready”. With this business, she’s returning to her roots in PR, which began straight out of high school.
I love hearing stories about mom’s getting lucky, receiving random blessings, and making something great out of them. I’m excited to support those occasions whenever possible, because I believe that when we work together, all the boats will rise together.
