Ava’s Dolce Boutique

When you receive an email from an adoring follower wanting it work with you, it’s kind of a big deal. That’s how met Mayra, the founder of Ava’s Dolce. We both picked up our phones and texted “OMG did you read that sweet message from Mayra?!” It meant so much to us.

Mayra is in the midst of launching her own company in the middle of planning a big wedding. Sound familiar? We immediately sympathized with her. Mayra is a true #SceneGirl in that she has an undying love for two year old daughter, Ava and of course, a passion for fashion. Our kinda girl.

Mayra was inspired by Ava when she noticed her love for dresses, shoes and all things beautiful, at such a young age. She gets it from her mama! With a love for fashion herself, Ava’s Dolce was born. You’ll notice that the looks at Ava’s Dolce are strategic, Mayra doesn’t mess around. They’re seasonally trendy, flattering, flirty, and fun! So much fun!

We love supporting local businesses and fabulous local moms out there, so we’re excited to introduce you to Mayra and Ava’s Dolce! Stay tuned for details on an upcoming event we plan on doing with her at her showroom!

Core Evolution | #SceneSports

It’s hard to keep up with all of the workouts popping up in South Florida, but you’re going to want to learn about this one! Core Evolution is Megaformer Machine / Lagree Fitness Method specifically designed to strengthen, lengthen, and tone the body quickly and safely, think Reformer Pilates on serious crack.

There’s a reason Victoria Secret models swear by it…

We’re not going to lie to you, it’s TOUGH. Two of our close friends are getting married in two months, and they’re absolutely addicted to the workout, so if our crazy #SceneBrides are doing it, you know it’s a good a class. Unlike your traditional reformer classes, you will you SWEAT in a Core class.

The Lagree method makes sure of that because it emphasizes both strength training and cardio elements while maintaining a safe low impact environment for joints, muscles and ligaments. You literally feel your muscles burning and toning with every movement on the reformer. Ladies, don’t forget your stick socks, you’ll need them. If you happen to forget, no worries, they sell the most adorable styles that come in every size!

The Lagree Method is pretty remarkable  strength, endurance, flexibility, body composition, and cardio to ensure you’re getting the most out of a full body workout. One of our favorite parts of the class is the fact that it goes by so fast. It’s 50 minutes of non-stop work, but with incredible instructors and amazing music, it flies by.

Oh, and they have REALLY cute workout clothes…

Within a month of taking the class, we have seen such a significant difference in our bodies. We’re stronger, leaner and toned. It’s a high energy class with immense benefits. Your first class is $15, so get on it! You can sign up for classes directly on their website, or on their app! We promise you won’t be disappointed.

IV Therapy with IV2You

What in the world were you girls doing with those IVs in your home? Questions we have been getting for the past couple weeks, and now we are here to tell you allllll about it. We were introduced to Dr. Lena Edwards and IV2You while filming a news segment with CBS12, (thanks to Pinnacle Advertising & Marketing Group!) After hearing the benefits of IV Therapy, Lindsey & #SceneGirl Jess were excited to experience everything this treatment had to offer.

Promoting the anti-hangover remedy to go hand-in-hand with St. Patrick’s Day, Lindsey & Jess were treated with the “2 Revive – IV Hangover Therapy”. IV2You’s “Hangover Therapy” gives partiers the opportunity to enjoy a big night out without having to pay for it the next day. We’ll just say this, IV2You is a LIFE CHANGER, we were immediately overcome with an explosion of hydration and vitamins. The hangover therapy includes IV fluids containing electrolytes, B vitamins, and Magnesium, all of which can be depleted with alcohol consumption. Extra fluids are given to help with the dehydration which usually accompanies other hangover symptoms. If you are really down, choose from one of their add on therapies: anti-nausea medication, anti-inflammatory medication, and/or anti-heartburn medication. As we get older, we’re starting to notice that our hangovers tend to linger around a little longer than they used to, but now we have an instant remedy! There’s a reason why Sofia Vergara had IV Therapy vans outside of The Breakers throughout her wedding weekend….

After a long bachelor party weekend in Costa Rica, Lindsey scheduled Dr. Edwards to come to her home to treat her husband, Blake and the bachelor himself, Joe. After receiving an entire IV bag, it was as if the bachelor party never happened!

Not a big drinker? Good for you! IV Therapy isn’t just about treating and preventing hangovers. Dr. Edwards can customize an IV bag to your everyday needs. IV2You offers potent formulas to help with stress, anti-aging, energizing, strengthening, beautifying and relaxation.

Some of you may be freaked out by needles, but rest assured, Dr. Edwards is a medical doctor with years of experience practicing the benefits of IV Therapy. Learn more about her and her credentials here! Not only is she a complete professional and pioneer in her field, Dr. Edwards is so much fun to be around! She explains the process of customizing the IV bags to ensure you’re comfortable with everything she is doing.  It’s easy to assume an experience like this would be on the pricey side, but it’s really not! Pricing varies upon treatment, but our ‘hangover remedy’ IV was just $129, which includes Dr. Edwards coming to your home and administering the IV!

We couldn’t be happier to know that businesses like IV2You exist. You want to be very careful! Be aware of copycat companies claiming to provide a similar treatments. You want to receive IV Therapy from experienced doctors like Dr. Edwards.

Irresistible Who? Irresistible Me!

Lindsey here! Yes, I’m getting real with you guys today. After abandoning my lifelong dream of being a blonde in November 2014, I was immediately faced with thin, brittle, disgusting hair. My monthly highlight and single processing appointments finally got the best of me. It also probably doesn’t help that I quit the blonde life cold turkey and went from a Marilyn to a Jackie during one hair appointment. No one to blame but myself. Did I mention that I also decided to do this the month before two of my best friend’s weddings? Sorry gals…

Waxing the City | LLScene’s Newest Obsession

When was the last time you had a good wax? If it takes you longer than 5 seconds to remember, it’s time to stop what you’re doing and call Waxing the City Boca Raton.

Per Michelle’s recommendation we booked our appointments with Barbara and couldn’t have been happier with the results. She took her time explaining why the waxing process at WTC is so different than any other waxing chain in the industry, while meticulously waxing away.

What makes WTC so different you ask?

It’s really not that painful. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, so you can expect a short, stinging sensation after the strip is pulled, but their team truly prides themselves on their ability to eliminate pain through the use of applying small strips of wax to the designated area. Continuous waxing causes finer and less hair therefore waxing becomes less painful.

2d90df_5090fa113c694a1fbedf8dfe2257cc6e.png

 It’s all about the wax. For the face and more sensitive areas of the body, they use a hard wax that shrink wraps and hardens around the hair and lifts from the skin creating a less painful removal. They use a more traditional soft wax for larger body areas such as legs, arms, chest, and back, which is removed by using a cloth strip.

Depending on how fast your hair usually grows, you can anticipate your next appointment being 4-5 weeks after your original wax. However, you’ll notice hair will slowly start to grow back in 2-3 weeks. The best way to prevent hair growth is to exfoliate with WTC’s Sugar Scrub! Not only will it prolong the growth process, exfoliating will also help with the pain of future waxes! Sounds like a win/win for us! Some advice…DON’T SHAVE! It will make your next wax appointment 10x more painful.

You didn’t think you would get this far into a blog post without some kind of perk did you? It’s simple! Mention LLScene & receive 50% off your first wax!

 With a long history of ingrown hairs, Barbara suggested PFB Vanish + Chromabright. PFB is formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots caused by ingrown hair, razor burn and bumps resulting from shaving, waxing, and tweezing. Talk about immediate results! Our skin has never felt smoother and more exfoliated!

Whether you’re getting your eyebrows waxed or dare we say, the full monty brazilian, you want to trust your esthetician with your life. With an on & off relationship with waxing, we are confident to say that we have found our forever home at Waxing the City. After all….bathing suit season is coming!

Disclaimer: Of course, all opinions & reviews are our very own. Some of our posts & ads contain affiliate links to make a purchase. We only partner with companies we are truly passionate about. It’s little things like this, which come as no extra charge to our loyal readers, that keep us up & running. Thanks so much!
