The one predictable thing about my life is that it is not remotely predictable.
Case in point, never in a million years could I have predicted that I would end up at a schwanky OK Magazine pre-Oscars party, representing Cottonelle toilet paper, or as I like to call them, bum wipes. But (or should I say butt?), that is EXACTLY where I ended up last Thursday night and boy, am I still wiped out!
Here’s how it all went down:
A friend and fellow-blogger PM’d me on Facebook two weeks ago asking if I’d like to attend an Oscars Pre-Party hosted by OK Magazine and sponsored by Cottonelle.
UM? HECK YEAH!
Ironically enough, a few weeks prior to this, I had seen this Cottonelle commercial and proceeded to fall madly in love with the brand AND their newest spokeswoman, Cherry Healey. Watch this to know why:
So not only was I excited about attending a schwanky Oscar’s party in LA, but I also felt a little tinkly, I mean tingly inside thinking that I might meet my latest girl crush from the bowling alley.
A few days before the party, I received this rad swag box with Sephora make-up, a beautiful necklace, mints, and of course, Cottonelle products.
On the afternoon of the event I took this video before getting ready.
And wouldn’t you know, as I was getting ready, my favorite eyeshadow case shattered and my Cottonelle wipes were there to save the day!
This was my hot date, Laura, and me before getting in “our car” to drive up to West Hollywood.
This is us in The Grove Nordstrom dressing room changing into our cocktail attire.
Yes, that’s Tia Carrere of Wayne’s World fame. She was incredible gracious and even more beautiful in person.
Then I had to make sure there was plenty of Cottonelle to be found, and . . . there was!
And FINALLY, we met the illustrious Cherry Healey. She was even more fun and hilarious in person than she is in the commercials. I wish she lived closer so we could “bum around” all the time.
The night was one for the record books and I thank the fine folks of Cottonelle for making it happen.
