Just wanted to say heyyyy and tell you guys about the amazing time I had last Friday with my fabulous Lincoln family and friends! Myself, along with a handful of other influencers were invited out to a three part event in celebration of the all new 2017 Lincoln MKZ. The exclusive event started at the Royal Palm Resort South Beach, where we met for an intimate brunch at the Byblos Miami and a brief, yet detailed overview of the vehicle provided by Lincoln Engineer Tom Ozog.
Ladies and gentlemen I have to tell you that Byblos Miami is perfect. Everything was exceptional, but there are a few dishes that I am still dreaming of, like the fresh crispy squid and the creamy spinach pide. Both dishes literally melted in my mouth and when they brought out the Chocolate mousse I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Yep! It was that good! LOL!
After lunch I grabbed my drive partner and high tailed it out of there so that we could discover the MKZ! The thought of actually being one of the first to drive the 2017 red Hybrid was such an adrenaline rush. Although it wasn’t until I got behind the wheel and literally sank in the drivers seat that the dream became reality. Those seats! Those seats! Those seats! They are undeniable upgraded and undeniably magical! #Wowsers!
As we drove to Perez I could feel myself becoming one with the vehicle. I had my drive partner on the right of me, the Revel on blast and the seats on massage. Yep! I was in Lincoln heaven. At that very moment all I needed was a pillow, a blanket and like 72 more hours to make me a happy girl again. HA! I swear I was a little annoyed when we arrived at the museum.
When we arrived at the Museum, my disappointment faded fast because we were not only greeted, but surprised by two hugeeee helicopters! I have to admit it was so on point and so on time that it almost felt staged. LOL! Everyone knows I love hugeee powerful machines, so for me it only added to the already EPIC experience! #TheFeelingIsStillStaying!
