On Saturday, February 23rd, I was granted the highly coveted golden ticket to attend Wow Creation’s annual Pre-Oscar Celebrity Gifting Lounge at the ever chic W Hollywood. Produced by twin brothers Mark and Matt Harris, you may recognize them from A&E’s Storage Wars, the event grants participating brands the rare opportunity to mingle with various Oscar Award related actors, producers, writers, influencers and VIP’s in exchange for gifts of their wares and or services.
