In the lead up to the Oscars on Sunday night, the lovely Abbi Hollins from bronzing brand St.Tropez will be giving custom tans to the A-List attendees. And in between all that spraying, she's keeping Grazia Daily updated on all the inside goss straight from LA LA Land...
Today my journey to the Oscars begins! It was an eventful celebrity filled flight from London to LA. Colin Firth was in close proximity (say no more!) and I bumped into Taylor Swift at the airport - she's a bite sized bubble of gorgeousness! When the plane was descending, I looked out of the window and saw the 'Hollywood' sign and I knew I'd arrived. Obviously, I couldn't contain the smiles and I started imagining all the celebs that I would meet, and tan. My heart was literally racing with excitement!
When I first stepped out into the Californian air, I was amazed at how BIG everything is! And how many palm trees there are, lining all the roads. After travelling in the taxi with Albert (a taxi driver from Germany who took us on the 'scenic route' through Beverley Hills) we finally arrived at our hotel, The Sunset Marquis [above]. The sun was setting and fairy lights filled the entrance. We checked into our suite and as soon as I shut my door to the bell boy, I could finally release a squeal of delight!
After having freshened up, we walked to the sunset strip where we were met by classic diners, bucking broncos and sky-high hotels with glittery floors. Cool! I enjoyed a very yummy steak for dinner at The Standard before I was back in my hotel room to apply my St Tropez Bronzing Lotion, making me set for the week ahead. It's an early start tomorrow morning when I'll be back with the latest goss straight from the Hollywood Hills!
