This week I’ve found myself hotel hopping and you won’t hear me complaining. It’s Oscar week here in LA, which means lots of parties and a generally festive mood. Events for me are usually considered work, but every now and then I go for fun, which is what I did last night with my friend Jen. She’s so the girl about town, so I can always count on her to take me somewhere fabulous. We hit up the Spa Oscar Party at the Beverly Wilshire, and while I don’t normally write about events here, there are a few things you must know.
First, if you are looking for one of the most iconic luxury hotels in LA, look no further. It’s managed by Four Seasons and yes…it’s the hotel from “Pretty Woman.” It’s had a major face lift since then and Wolfgang Puck opened Cut, one of his best and most extravagant steak houses in town.
I always judge an event by how quickly I have a glass of champagne in hand ;). I think this was a record 1.5 seconds, so you know I was happy.
Jen and I mingled with Carrie Mitchell (far left), the PR director for the hotel and Christine Chiu (who happens to be married to one of the best plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills…Dr. Gabriel Chiu (in case you are looking!).
Ok, listen up. I cannot explain to you enough my obsession with Natura Bissé, a Barcelona based skincare line. I have very sensitive skin and it’s worth every penny. Though…I haven’t quite worked my way up to the Diamond line (their most luxurious). My daily routine includes their NB Ceutical Tolerance Cleanser, the Sensitive Complex and the Essential Shock Cream. When I found out the Beverly Wilshire Spa uses their products, I literally ran (I’m a dork) to the little tent set up and proceeded to gush in hopes I’d go home with some samples (I did).
I also got a Diamond scrub on my arm (they offer this as a facial treatment in the spa). And I swear, my arm looks years younger and a lot more sparkly!
I think I may be the only girl in LA who never passes up the food at events…the passed hor d’oeuvres were by Wolfgang Puck.
Though I did pass up the candy bar, but wasn’t it pretty!
On the way out the door, I made a new BFF, Robby, who sat me down for a 10 minute hair fluff. In addition to hair at the hotel, he also does the spray tanning…so I plan to go back next time I need a very fancy tan (and so should you). He was tons of fun.

Thought we might stay at Wilshire until I looked at the rates!! Just as I thought – too cheap. (Just kidding. You know me.) Love seeing you via this site, Molly, and look forward to seeing you when we go to James Fuller’s wedding June 1 (first son of Jane and Jeff Hartsell). We’ll talk. Love, Sandy
Haha! I can give you a million suggestions. Call me if you need advice and I hope to see you when you are out here!
Ooh! Aah!! Always obsessed with Oscars (have always made sure to have day off that day, months in advance, so I can park myself on couch at noon and not get up till midnight), so thanks for the insider peek inside such an incredibly fun event. I want a sparkly arm too!
Ooh la la!
