Meeting Kristin Davis? All in a Day’s Work

Product launch parties in New York City are similar to fancy parties that you always dreamed of attending as a child (or, in my case, also as an adult). There are tiny finger foods floating around the room, swarms of journalists boasting of their latest ventures, cameramen lazily snapping pictures of the scene, and, you know, a celebrity or two.

(All right, maybe I was the only child who dreamed of a party like that.)

Regardless, today’s event was fantastic. I went to a product launch for Zarbee’s new adult line of honey-based cough products. Zarbee’s is the queen bee of natural, drug-free cough relievers for kids–and now parents!–and their products have earned them a few Hollywood mega-fans, including one certain Sex and the City star.

As I sat in the gorgeous penthouse suite of a swanky Manhattan hotel, surrounded by well-known bloggers, editors, and writers, Kristin Davis herself sashayed into the room on sky-high Louboutins (“They’re Charlotte’s heels!” she later whispered to me) and surprised the speechless crowd.

Kristin, who is mom to one-year-old Gemma Rose, chatted about the difficulties of trying to be the perfect mom while also being a single parent. “It’s challenging,” she admitted, “but so very worth it.” As you could guess, the celeb was just as sweet and bubbly as her old on-screen character, Charlotte, complimenting my outfit and repeatedly thanking everyone for coming. After a quick picture with her (she touched my waist!), I skipped out the door, grabbing a Zarbee’s goody bag and a macaroon on the way. My travel back to the Parents headquarters was spent in a dazed, smiley state—which most likely terrified other people—and I contemplated the likelihood of Kristin and I becoming best friends. (Outcome? Unlikely.) Still, no complaints for a day’s worth of “work.”

Which celebrity would you be most shell-shocked to meet? Tell us below!

    I don’t care about the celebrities, but I do like Zarbee’s–it really helps my son sleep well at night when he’s sick. I recommend it!

    I like pizza but attempt to not try to eat it a lot anymore (the 35 pounds I gained performing in a Round Table in school remain with me). I will place in a plug for Michael’s Pizzeria on Naples in Prolonged Beach.

    I’ve a problem for your author of the web site. I’m enthusiastic about the gardens owned and operated by Chinese factories, in particular any case during which factory workers also cultivate gardens. Or, alternatively, any instance of Chinese workers living in villages exactly where they try to eat foods produced by their communities. In each conditions, foods which the company does not need to purchase feeds the worker and subsidizes the wage.

    You should take part in a contest for one of the most useful websites on the internet. I am going to recommend this website!

  6. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
