My NYC Book Tour for the launch of my party planning book celebraTORI went so well that I wanted to share my picTORIal with you. It was non-stop, crazy press days from “The Today Show” where Sarah Palin co-hosted and told me I was an inspiration. Nice! To “The View” where behind the scenes Barbara Walters patted my belly and jokingly said “keep your legs closed!” At least I think she was joking. To three book signings with amazing turn outs, to a much-needed vintage stop! Here are some pics taken along the way…

Here’s a party threw for my book release! It was a fun Q&A with all mommies.



Here I am answering questions…

At The Moms event with a woman and friend who has inspired me so much and has taught me that the dessert table is the focal of any party! It’s dessert guru Amy Atlas who stopped by to support me. Love ya Amy!

Here’s the amazing dessert table The Rachael Ray show recreated from all the desserts in my book!

And a peek at my DIY champagne and vodka bar. I love doing Rachael’s show. She’s such a huge supporter of us multitasking ladies!


Here was my first book signing in New Jersey for celebraTORI.

At Bookends signing with 3 of my biggest fans and twitter friends @blondie5o @darrenmartin2 @suegrayson. I cried when I saw all of them! They support me so much always. Darren drove 14 hours! I’m a lucky girl.

Ahhh memories!

Here I am on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo with Andy Cohen and Chris Klein from American Reunion.

Getting some housewives scoop with NY housewife Jill Zarin who was co hosting The Buzz when I was on.

On way to my 2nd book signing in NYC at Barnes and Noble.

Here’s everyone gathered out front in line.

Some press shots before the signing begins.

Loving my fans of all ages!

Supported by my friends Dana and Chris @TheWrobleski.

The welcome at my 3rd book signing in Long Island! What girl doesn’t love a Mylar moment?

With only an hour to spare on the last day of my NYC tour I managed to make one stop at my favorite east coast vintage store: Amacord. I couldn’t help but reward myself with these vintage Chanel green and blue glass earrings.

Last press stop… The Cable upfronts where all cable shows are introduced. I took the stage to tell everyone about my new crafting competition show “Crafts Wars” premiering on TLC June 26th!

I’d much rather stare at these shoes than wear them. Like art, but killer to a pregger!

My fellow TLC’ers Niecy Nash and Theresa Caputo from “Long Island Medium”!

Finished my trip with some amazing gourmet dim sum at The Red Farm with my friend Dana and new crafty pal Erica Domesek from PS I Made This!

Amazingly successful trip for celebraTORI and me but after four nights away I was over the moon to get home to my hubby, babies, and fur babies!

Were you able to make it out to any of my book signings? If so, I’d love to see pictures! Upload them to your ediTORIal profile and leave the link to your profile below- I’ll feature my favorite fan photos on the site!
