What a Gift! Thank you to the OTHERHOOD Book Launch Sponsors!

I already told you about FORD's Premier generosity at the Otherhood book release event on Monday, March 3, 2014 at the ACA Galleries in New York City. And I cannot thank my publisher, Seal Press, enough for their generosity and support of the event. But there were many others who made the night extraodinary!

The Gold Level Sponsors included: DeVries Global PR and Pantene. DeVries Global PR and I are partnering on a very exciting project I can't talk about just yet but it's coming soon!  Here are some of the extraordinary folks from the DeVries team who came out to support the event!


It was a thing of beauty to have PANTENE and the PANTENE Pro-V Age Defy products as a sponsor. I had tried the products about a year ago and haven't looked back. My favorite product of the line is the Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment. I have to admit that as I age, my hair is getting thinner and the treatment makes my hair feel thicker at the roots. My guests got to take home Pantene Pro-V Age Defy Shampoo and Age Defy Conditioner thanks to Pantene's generosity!

Avon was generous enough to be a sponsor and gave my guests two products including the AVON ANEW Clinical Pro Line Eraser Treatment (the 2012 Allure Breakthrough Award Winner goes on so smoothly I catch myself putting it on my face three times a day!) and AVON Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick which has a 4.9/5 consumer rating! And I can see why. I got the perfect pink shade for spring!  Here's a photo of me and Jessica Goon, Senior Manager, Public Relations & Social Media at Avon Products.


Marina Maher Communications came to celebrate with me as well. Here some of the ladies of MMC!


And last but not least, PinchMe was there to offer my guests the best way to try products from the world’s leading brands for free. Each guest got a PinchMe sample gift box!


And there were more goodies in the gift bag. Thanks to Sexy Pop popcorn, Sinful Colors nailpolish, and Rosebud Lipbalm!

And at the event itself, Booze Carriage served Refreshing Happiness, light cocktails. And guests nibbled on Butter & Scotch cupcakes and sipped Oatworks.




I have to say, the night was filled with the very best of friends and supporters. For more photos from the event, visit my album on Facebook.com/MelanieNotkin
