Golden Globes: The HBO Luxury Lounge Presented by Obliphica Professional

The HBO LUXURY LOUNGE®,  presented this year by Obliphica Professional, was held at its usual home –  the stunning Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. Over the years, the event has earned its reputation as the hottest lounge of the weekend!

Actress Annie Winter

Stars from nominated television and film series that attended included: Crazy Rich Asian’s Fiona Xie; Barry’s Henry Winkler, Bill Hader, and Stephen Root; Escape at Dannemora’s Michael Beasley; Ralph Breaks the Internet’s Anika Noni Rose and Sam Richardson; and  Sharp Objects’ Taylor John Smith. Other celebrities who indulged in the suite included HBO stars such as Ballers’ Kris Lofton, Carl McDowell and Donovan Carter; Succession’s Alan Ruck; Casual’s Austin Basis;  Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Susie Essman; High Maintenance’s Ben Sinclair; Insecure’s Natasha Rothwell, Jean Elie, Sarunas Jackson, Neil Brown Jr, and Yvonne Orji; and Westworld’s Louis Herthrum and Ptolemy Slocum. Plus a countless list of other actors, musicians, and Hollywood elite!

Celebrities were treated to a lounge by signature sponsor Obliphica Professional where they could get their hair red carpet ready! Stylist Shaul Arbiv, gave my hair the perfect beach wave. I wasn’t surprised to learn he does hair for Adam Levine and Sia. The Obliphica line which has been traditionally reserved for professional stylists like him, will soon be available to the consumer and I for one, can not wait.

When you think of Bose, you don’t think of sunglasses…well, not yet anyway! But, Bose gifted attendees a pair of Bose frames, aka “sunglasses with a soudtrack” and I could not be more stoked! I definitely plan to rock these glasses and tunes while I hike Runyon Canyon and get my body red carpet ready for the rest of awards season.

Speaking of hiking, you can’t take a stroll around Hollywood without seeing all the celebrity Moms out and about enjoying the beautiful Cali weather. UPPAbaby was on site showcasing their latest stroller’s and care seats and highlighting their UPPAbaby gives back promotion. Attendees could fill out a card with an inspiration quote helping to benefit charities including Alliance of Moms, Good + Foundation, and Room to Grow.

While it rarely feels like winter in LA,  Johnnie Walker had us excited for the cold weather with their new bottle of  White Walker by Johnnie Walker which is a special Game of Thrones limited edition. The bottle design was everything! Not to be outdone, Ciroc was on site unveiling their Limited Edition Holiday Ciroc Black Raspberry. We might have made an impromptu toast to Globes weekend!

On the patio guests could enjoy a create your old Cold Stone creamery experience and I loved trying their newest flavor “Dough For It!” a take on the classic cookie dough (my personal fav!), as well as healthy juices and bowls from Grabbagreen. I’m usually not a fan of pressed juice but their juices had amazing flavor!

Keeping on the healthy path, guests picked up homeopathic medicines from Bioron to stay healthy all “winter” in Los Angeles and USDA organic whole food supplements and all natural, EWG verified skincare from Live Ulitmate whose adorable husband and wife team had us as much in love with them as the product.

For some final pampering, Kush Queen shared a line of innovative CBD products including the relieve bath balm we scooped up for a relaxing post- Globes bath,  and Gendarme gifted fragrances for men and women keeping you smelling fresh through those high pressure awards show moments.

Up next? The HBO Golden Globes after party of course!
