TMG Pre-Oscar Gifting Suite.

So another opportunity rolled itself onto the FIDM portal here last week. One activity that involved the word "Oscars."

Oh yes. Whitney, Jordan, and myself all jumped on that bandwagon as soon as we saw the volunteer posting come up on our school's career center page (which, by the way, is the most wicked thing to ever happen at any school), not knowing exactly what we were getting ourselves into, only that we wanted to check it out!

So after coming home from my epic week in Arizona (missing you lads), and being thrown back into school, I just hopped into this activity and drove to LA the last three days for this thing!

What an excitement that was. And although we didn't get to see Bradley Cooper or Benedict Cumberbatch (I know, sniff sniff), I had some pretty incredible experiences, as well as some fond memories.

Basically, we were celebrity escorts. The guests would check in downstairs (by the way, this was held at the shwankville Beverly Hilton), and then one of us would take them upstairs to the suite room on the 8th floor, where they had to go through two more check-ins. In said suite, there were a variety of Pre-Oscar pampering stations, as well as some random businesses. From massages to cupcakes, to cellphone cases and eyebrow bars, this tightly packed room was full of all the hustle and bustle. And then we basically took them around, held their shopping bags as they received free goods from the vendors, and then made sure to have photographs taken at each station.

It was way fun! And you know, we met some pretty neat people. Actors, celebrity stylists, bloggers, directors, journalists, the whole enchilada!

I think one of my favorite bits, however, besides having been asked for my number (!!!), was the after-party run-in. So after I had taken my complimentary Strawberry Shortcake cupcake (the main reason why I drove down to LA in the first place, duh), Jordan, Whitney, and myself went down to the lounge to sit our feet and kill some time before hitting the obnoxious Los Angleles traffic scene.

So this was the second night- I had a Shirley Temple, the piano man was going ham (John Hamm), and all of a sudden, Jordan goes "Hey, isn't that a celebrity?" Now Whitney, who is our official pop culture genius, turns around, does the craziest 360 back to us and goes "THAT'S SCOTT EASTWOOD." It was pretty exciting, let me tell you! And not the fact that it's the celeb actor and famous Clint Eastwood son, but the fact that this man is hella attractive.

I liked to joke- Even though I may go to a school with few boys, when I do go out, I have drinks next to Scott Eastwood. Who knew?

But truly, it was such an action packed couple of days. We met an actor off of Teen Wolf as well as Chuck Lidell, Pepper from AHS, and then many many more interesting individuals.

What a weekend indeed!

Gotta have an elevator selfie in the Beverly Hilton!

These cupcakes were the reason I came, truly.

Stephen Lunsford from Teen Wolf. What an absolute sweetheart he was. And can we just take a moment to appreciate my epic photo bombing skills? Jordan and Whitney were over there at the hair care station chatting him up and I just grabbed a bottle and jumped in when the photo opportunity came.. hehe.
