#OnTheScene - Mar-A-Lago Recap
We were honored to have been invited as the VIP guests of Nancy Reagan, the face of Bella Reina Spa. Bella Reina Spa was the giveaway sponsor by providing all of the beautiful women with a 24k gold ‘facial in a box’ to take home. The success of this event enabled the Bethesda Hospital Foundation to raise more than $1 million for Bethesda’s Center for Women and Children.
With former ‘Woman of Grace’ and Chairperson of the 15th Annual Women of Grace event, Nilsa McKinney. Nilsa is the co-founder of Caring House Project Foundation. CHPF creates villages based upon self-sufficiency by providing housing, food, water, education, medical support, and opportunity.
Once Nancy invited us, the question was clear, ‘WHAT ARE WE GOING TO WEAR?’ How does one properly prepare for a such a society affair at the Trump Estate? The answer: facials & spray tans. Lilly received a 24k gold facial at Bella Reina Spa, while Lindsey went straight to the spray tan machine. When it came to what we were going to wear, we wanted to stay true to the Palm Beach way of life, and add a twist of our #SceneGirl style. Lilly wore a Diane Von Furstenberg dress, while Lindsey went to her ‘go to’ online site, Lulus.com in their ‘Cut Above the Rest’ dress. To our surprise, our Palm Beach #SceneGirl style was a hit as we were unofficially named ‘best dressed’ by the fabulous women that attended the event.
Seated at our table was the FABULOUS Carlos Marrero, CEO of The Marrero Collection. LLScene immediately connected with his eccentric personality and sweet demeanor. Within the first five minutes of meeting him, it was clear we had a connection. We were honored when he asked us to wear the handbags of The Carlos Marrero Collection for the rest of the day. Carlos also gifted us one of his famous ‘Glamour iPhone Cases’, which features easy access to the buttons and earphone jack, precise cutouts for speakers and camera, and a gorgeous metal chain with matching faux pearls for style and support.
This was probably one of the coolest things we’ve ever done. We met great people, learned about influential women, and felt fabulous! Now that we have attended a posh Palm Beach event, there is no looking back. This is the life for us...sorry Sam & Blake.
