To celebrate Mother’s Day, I’m hosting the ultimate FabuLyss networking event for moms — the fourth annual Mom Moguls Breakfast at Lord & Taylor. Catered by Sarabeth’s, the breakfast will take place on May 4, from 9 am till 11 am, and will feature FabuLyss gift bags, raffle prizes, mini makeovers, photos by Heidi Green Photography, and DeLysscious sweet treats by Cakes Jagla.
Supermodel Veronica Webb will join me in moderating a panel discussion with some of today’s most successful mom moguls, including Dylan Lauren (Dylan’s Candy founder), Tanya Zuckerbrot (“F-Factor Diet” author), Amanda Freeman (owner of SLT gym), Audrey Puente (Fox 5 News meteorologist), Jenny Hutt (Sirius XM host), Cozy Friedman (Cozy Cuts For Kids salon founder), and Raakhee Mirchandani (Daily News writer). The power moms will share the inside scoop on balancing babies and the boardroom with moms looking for direction in their careers.
This is one of the most rewarding events I do all year, because it gives me the opportunity to inspire and bond with moms in every aspect of their lives, and what makes it even better is that I have a group of some of the most powerful moms in New York City on hand to motivate my guests and myself.
The discussion will focus on advice and tips for moms who are either launching their own business or mompreneurs who are climbing the mom mogul ladder. Tickets are on sale www.divamoms.com.

Do you know about the FabuLyss Sassafrass collection? It’s books, toys, and more all about a perky Pekingese, Sassafrass Jones, and her friends. Cathleen Smith Bresciani created a one-of-a-kind collectible Steiff plush toy to help the character Sassafrass come to life! She chose certain animals in the Steiff collection and decided to make custom dresses, jewelry, and a suitcase to store all of the many accessories that the company created for the “Forever Friends” collection.
The first book in the series, “Sassafrass Jones and the Search for a Forever Home,” is best for ages 5 and up. My children love this book collection. It’s a more sophisticated, detailed story. “Sassafrass Jones Mouse-Sized” (available for sale in May) is a shorter version sure to capture the attention of younger children. “Sassafrass Jones and her Forever Friends ABCs” is suitable for ages 3 and up. The new coloring books are just amazing! Your kids will not want to stop coloring!
The best way is to purchase from the website at www.sassaf
