This years 2018 Golden Globes was definitely a deviation from the past. Not only did all the female stars wear black gowns to the event in support of ending sexual harassment, but also there was a support vibe rather than a competition for the golden statue. Women seemed to lift each other up through their speeches, and were very outspoken on the need to speak up, and stand up for themselves.
The golden globes were a golden celebration of stars, couture dresses, and surprising moments like Kirk Douglas receiving a standing ovation at 101 years old. The iconic actor was accompanied on stage by his daughter in law Catherine Zeta-Jones followed by a short video tribute to him as an actor. There were happy moments, and moments meant to inspire.
In Los Angeles, the Golden Globes are filled with weekend long festivities including numerous events leading up to the big award show. One of these events is the recurring GBK pre Golden Globes Celebrity gift lounge honoring the nominees and hot Hollywood talent. This year GBK presented “A Golden Affair,” and golden it was beginning with one of the events wine sponsors Blue Nun. The event was held at the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills and guests were gifted Blue Nun wine embosomed with speckled 24 Karot gold flakes, now that seems like a golden celebration.
What pairs so perfectly with wine that you’ll want more, and I’m not referring to another glass! Chocolate, in addition to the bottle of wine, guests were treated to chocolate bars because wine and chocolate are a perfect combo. Other fab gifts included an artisan group tote filled with goodies, artwork by LMK Art. Just check out the dazzling LA gold rug, it falls perfectly into the sparkly golden affair.
There was so much pouring refreshments in the forms of wine, sake and more wine at the event. In addition to Blue Nun, Moraga Vineyards in Bel-Air gifted guests the Moraga experience as well as wine tastings. There were sake moments provided by Hiro Blue Junmai Ginjo Sake, because lets face it sushi is a big part of the LA culture. This sake is perfect to accompany an at home sushi night, homemade or order in, it’s important to pair accordingly.
Next it’s all about indulgent self care, any star knows this is just part of the role of being a tinsletown sweetheart. That’s why when Burke Williams offers their massages on site, you quickly concur and delight in their amazing new collection. Guests were treated to a complete spa experience at any of their locations as well as a bag full of skin care treats. I seriously love Burke Williams and will be sharing some of my favorite skin care products coming up.
As much as I love being pampered, chocolates, and beauty, I was seriously enthralled to discover the new Too Faced Cosmetics chocolate gold collection. Not only is the eye shadow gold bar palette inclusive of colors I love, it smells like chocolate. Walk into a Sephora and head over to the counter and begin smelling away. It smells amazing! Guests were treated to make up touch ups by a Too Faced make up artist and were gifted a bag full of Too Faced goodies including a chocolate bronzer, gold liquid lipstick, mascara, and eye shadow pallet. How’s that for the chocoholic in us!
