This Weekend in Hollywood...

Aside from finding out my credit card info was stolen and used recently (I won't get into that), it was a pretty low-key but good weekend. I went shopping and picked up goodies from Forever 21 and Bath & Body Works...because nothing relieves the stress of some stranger charging hundreds of dollars fraudulently on your credit card than spending your own money.

Sunday night I went to Kate's (of Nautical By Nature) for her annual Oscar party. Although I live a block from the theater where the Oscars were held, and work on the same street, just buildings away, I've never been to see the red carpet. I should at some point just because I'm so close. One day! But Kate did a great job of making the night special. She's such a great host and had the most adorable decorations. Check out how cute everything was!

ahhh SO sorry about your credit card! That really stinks. I think you relieved your stress in the right way though :) You had some great F21 finds, and I love those Bath & Body Works candles! They're the best!

Erin said...

Oh wow what a cute party! I can't believe you live a block away and have never gone to scope out the scene though, you're crazy girlfriend!

Sorry to hear about your card being stolen, that's horrible. Such a pain to deal with.
Love all your new goodies!! I use to be a big fan of BBW candles but since they are no longer slaktin, I don't think they are that good. Personally, I think the new ones burn faster and it drives me batty that they die out and there is still a ton of wax left.
Thanks for letting me link up!!! Happy Monday!!

So sorry to hear about your credit card mishap (that happened to me last year), but I hope it will all get resolved for you soon.

I do like what you bought, especially that leopard print collar top. So nice that you went to an Oscars party too!

That stinks that your card was stolen! That happened to me last year and it was so frustrating.

Looks like a fun party!

Claire Kiefer said...

So amazing that you live right next to the Oscars! I probably would have sat outside and just watched . . . how magical! Kate's party looked so fun, though. I watched with Matt and remained only semi-interested till the end. We had only seen two of the movies nominated: Beasts of the Southern Wild and Silver Linings Playbook, both of which were amazing!

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Boooooo on mean people stealing credit card info and using it. Boooo!

BUT, you are right, shopping usually cures the pain. ;)

Happy Monday.

So much B&BW stuff! I went on a huge binge like that at Christmastime. I look good smelling stuff! Why don't you go to premiers or red carpet stuff? Can the general public even see anything? Kate threw a great party!

The Unreal Life said...

girl i can't believe you live so close to the hollywood excitement! (do you wish you had a quarter for every time someone said that?)

Mellissa "Shia" Rondinelli said...

Sorry to hear about your credit card ... looks like you got some good stuff from Forever 21 and Bath and Body Works. I haven't been there in forever I keep forget about their candles. I've heard a lot of good things about them.

oMG! sorry to hear about the identity theft :O but all those oscars pictures were SOO cute. Must have been a lot of fun :D

Chris said...

I see someone hit up the Bath & Body Works sale... holy cow did you get a lot of stuff! I watched the Oscars... well sort of... award shows are kind of boring now!
