"Now you won't have to shop for a full year, Lee," Sean Koski laughed as we left Jill Zarin
's Luxury Luncheon, weighted down with three large bags - (including a 24k Gold Quilted Koala tote) of loot. Sean had produced the event with Brian Kelly
under the banner Tickets2Events and he seemed to have an extremely detailed memory. He needed it to remember all the products and people he was managing. I needed those limos and golf carts running up and down the Zarin's driveway to get my haul to the car.

Jill, an original member of The Real Housewives of New York City
and co-author, (with sister, Lisa Wexler
and mom, Gloria Kamen) of Secrets of a Jewish Mother,
was now mothering all her friends - showering us with new beauty, health and fashion products at the hottest goodie bag grab in the Hamptons. This year, Jill opened it up to the public, selling tickets to benefit the International Thyroid Oncology Group, a touchstone for husband Bobby Zarin
, in our hearts as he battles thyroid cancer.
Supermodel Carol Alt
(with shoe brand Cat Perkins), comedian Heather McDonald, and the Former First Last of Florida Carole Crist (representing Luxe Living Realty) were among those who joined Housewives
Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona Singer
, Luanna D'agostino, Cindy Barshop, Kelly Bensimon
, Kathy Walkie, Gizelle Bryant, Adriana De Moura
, Marysol Patton, Kara Alloway and Pettifleur Berenger at the Zarin's beachfront uber
Jill brings the same A-game she gives to the task of caring for Bobby to the choice of new and cutting edge health, beauty and fashion products to take care of us. There was everything from the LumaRx Intense Pulsed Light therapy machine to permanently remove hair to the House of Designer Vagina, to enhance our shall-we-say "pleasure." We'll definitely get pleasure from the Porto Vino tote bag with the hidden removable pouch. Lift the flap and secretly pour some really good wine or vodka into your party glass, or just keep it safe from the sand on the beach.

We had to have the NuFace by Carol Cole facial toning device using microcurrent technology, with interchangeable anti-aging treatment attachments. We have long heard of the benefits of strengthening the muscles on your face this way, from high priced facialists, paying for their machines with our treatments. Now, for the price of one of those sessions, we have our own to tone our face as well as our body to stay selfie-savvy.
Other products for our face that we liked: the Mod Skin care line of products from the Dermatology & Laser Group, including a Ferulic + Vitamin C & E Anti-Oxidant Serum with collagen booster and the concept behind Tiffany Andersen's Organically Extracted Purified 24K Liquid Gold skincare line that has no metals in it and a unique texture.
Other participating brands included Jill Zarin Rug Collection by Unique Loom, Cambria, All Caps, Birdies, Molecuderm Skin Care, Empress 1908 Gin, Celsius, Idalia Baudo, Km Reflection, Lonvitalité, Phat Buddha Wear, Rnee Escobar Jewelry, Schiller Bikes, Tate Naturals, Tossware, Luma Rx, Luma Bella, Dr. Paw Paw, Amanda Blakely, Perpetual Shade, #floaty, Coola, Essential Body, Grande Lash, The IV Doctor, Antico Noè, Mia Adora, Wexler Dermatology, Skweez Couture, Ralph Lauren

Celebrity guests were shuttled in to the event via Aarius International and then treated to complimentary beauty services from Nuface, Sania's Brow Bar, RPZL, SOOTHE, consultations from The Dermatology and Laser Skin Care Group, Sono Bello and The IV Doctor. Guests received access to a "beauty bar" that featured giveaways of full size products from KM Reflection, Salts Alive and Gavée Gold, Coola, Molecuderm Skin Care, All Caps, Lonvitalité, LumaBella, LumaRx, Grande Lash, and Essential Body. The Real Housewives of Potomac
star Gizelle Bryant was onsite with her brand Every Hue Beauty to showcase her true color matching makeup collection. We also found KM Reflection glitter eye shadow, both cruelty free and organic with a coconut oil base. It promises to "not get anywhere other than where it's applied," presumably for the set that is tired of waking up with glitter all over their beds!
The Zarins served Whispering Angel, Tito's Vodka, Empress 1908 Gin, which changes color when mixed with tonic water, Celsius fitness drinks, Coconut Water, Kobe Steaks from New York Prime Beef
, authentic Italian Paninis from Antico Noè and much more. Celebrity Chef Roblé presided, Carlyle off the Green served and Designs by Mark Masone provided flowers. The event was produced for another consecutive year by luxury event planners Sean Koski & Brian Kelly of Ticket2Events.
Designer trunk shows donating profits to International Thyroid Oncology Group included Idalia Baudo jewelry featuring, beautiful mesh gold and silver designs from Italy, Destination Haus, Carmen Sol, Phat Buddha Wear and Rene Escobar Jewelry Cofi Leathers.
With all this high end product for heavy rollers, they say Jill's goodie bag was worth up to $5,000. And that's how this Jewish Mother rolls!
