Shopaholics Love Sophie Kinsella…Ramble

Every woman who has been on a little shopping splurge or two or more can relate to Confessions of Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. To celebrate the release of Kinsella’s newest Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) adventure Mini ShopaholicBig City Moms held a spectacular event resplendent with cupcakes, a reading and book signing in the ‘newish’ Limelight (yes the former nightclub!) Marketplace (which has a J Sisters Salon in it! Holla if you love avoiding midtown). Discounts included a free mini-facial at the amazing Om Aroma & Co. on the second floor. Owner Angela is a former professional pianist who uses champagne, truffles and even caviar as ingredients. All in all a true delight and a dangerous shopping location that Becky would approve of!

As for Sophie, she told us a charming story of motherhood which involved her pink shoe closet, a live Skype transmission and a sleepy husband luring their 4-year-old to crawl to him while Mommy continued a live book reading to a packed audience in Chicago. She was humble, charming and just so delightful. The passage she read from Mini Shopaholic involved Becky justifying an outrageous toy purchase as the toy equivalent of a Chanel jacket for her daughter Mini. I can’t wait to read it and may not sleep tonight.
