Last year we had the pleasure of “meeting” (virtually!) Katja, the kind, sweet, as-beautiful-on-the-inside-as-she-is-on-the-outside owner of Skimbaco, a trendy online children’s boutique that’s environmentally and socially conscious.
Pinks & Blues reviewed some of the wonderful products that Skimbaco offers, and it has been our absolute pleasure to keep in contact with Katja through email, blogging, Twitter and Facebook as her company grows.
So when we heard that Skimbaco scored the ultimate in amazing PR (have you heard of Oprah, by any chance!?), we were just so incredibly thrilled and wanted to spread the great news.
Surely you’ve heard (if not saw) that Tom Cruise appeared on “Oprah” last Friday and this Monday. On Friday’s show (May 2nd), Tom gave Oprah a tour of his Telluride, Colorado home. In the mudroom of the home, Oprah picked up a pair of Suri Cruise’s “Little Ladies” ladybug Mary Janes and held them out to the camera to show how cute they were, as Tom said, “ladybugs are Suri’s favorites.”
Take a look at the shoes for yourself:
Adorable, right? Well, they were purchased at Skimbaco for Suri by a friend of the Cruise family! The very shoes that millions saw Oprah hold on her show were hand-packaged BY Katja herself FOR Suri Cruise.
Imagine how gratifying it must have been for Katja to receive word, loud and clear – ON OPRAH(!!!) – that the shoes from her store were just perfect and loved by the Cruise family!
We just wanted to share in the excitement of our friend, whose warmth, enthusiasm and natural ability to make others feel special make her more than deserving of this special and exciting news.
And you know what the best part is? No matter if it’s for Suri Cruise or a non-celebrity baby from who-knows-where, Katja puts the same amount of love and care into every order and every package that leaves Skimbaco.
Congratulations, Katja! We are so proud of you!
