Being a Real Beauty Brand Ambassador for Therapon has its privileges, like being asked to host a super swanky, fabulous pampering beauty event in LA with about 35 top bloggers. That’s my kind of party! But seriously, I love putting on events and connecting great brands with great people and that is exactly what this event was all about. Face 2 Face LA was designed to introduce top tier influencers to Therapon’s fabulous Skin Renewal Systemand have them really experience the products through a pampering facial.
So I hand picked some of my favorite social media mavens in SoCal, found a an eco chic location (ROBB|B OPI Concept Salon), hired a top tier LA Caterer (Heirloom LA), got a bar sponsor O.N.E Coconut Drinks, a deelish dessert sponsor Magnolia Bakery, secured an amazingly talented photographer JennKL Photography (who took all the gorgeous shots you see in this post!) and put together the most amazing goodie bags ever! With all the right elements in place, I just knew the event would be fabulous and of course it was!
It was a real treat to have so much social media talent and positive energy in one place. It was delightful to share the Therapon products with my peers and offer them relaxation services like facials and mani’s and it was an extra special treat to indulge and sneak away on a Saturday afternoon to do what I love-share beauty with others and impact their lives in a positive way.
It was also an extra special treat to have Therapon’s own Social Media Maven, Christina Stumbaugh, in LA to connect with these influencers and share the story behind the Therapon Brand. Christina told us the story of how Therapon got started and how the founder Dr. James Beckman created an amazing lanolin based cream that allowed burn victims to regain some of the function and mobility in their hands. This miraculous cream also turned out to have unexpected anti-aging benefits and this single product helped launch this wonderful brand.
The highlight of this event for me was having a contest and inviting one non-social media woman to join us for a day of pampering and indulgence. I selected an amazing woman, who has a child with Down’s Syndrome and because of the constant demands of a special needs child, she has let herself go. This selfless woman never takes time to pamper herself, so being invited to Face 2 Face LA for a day of indulgence was exactly what she needed. She loved every moment of her experience that day and when she left there were tears of thanks in her eyes and there was a smile in my heart for having positively impacted this woman’s life.
Overall, it was an amazing, special day of all the things I love in one place: beauty, pampering, food, networking, girl time, gifts and goodies and amazing and special women. Thank you Therapon for allowing me to be the hostest with the mostest, it is an experience I will treasure for a long time!
