If there was ever an opportunity for me to go to the Oscars, I would be there in a heartbeat! Even a themed party get’s me all excited to dress up and feel glamourous. I tried a few different looks this time, instead of wearing a dress and having my hair down, I opted to wear pants and a slicked-back low ponytail…I felt like a new woman!
I felt so chic and glam in a whole different way than I’m used to. I also opted for completely nude makeup and as usual, no foundation! I’ve been going strong with face powder since November and my skin has completely changed.
About the Oskar Buzz Experience…
We arrived to a beautiful deck, glammed out with fairylights and there was a red carpet waiting for us to get our photos taken! There were some delicious snacks and drinks for us to enjoy and mingle with the other guests before the film started. Oh! they even had sushi, Yay! because I hadn’t had dinner yet.

Green Book is a 2018 American biographic comedy drama film directed by Peter Farrelly. Set in 1962, the film is inspired by the true story of a tour of the Deep South between African-American classical and jazz pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and Tony Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), an Italian- American bouncer, who served as Shirley’s driver and bodyguard.
The film was written by Farrelly, Brian Hayes Currie and Vallelonga’s son, Nick Vallelonga, based on interviews with his father and Shirley, as well as letters his father wrote to his mother. The film is named after The Negro Motorist Green Book, a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travellers written by Victor Hugo Green, to help them find motels and restaurants that would accept them.
The film has been nominated for a bunch of awards and I can certainly see why! It was such a beautiful story and the way that it was told is honestly just ART. I always have so many mixed emotions watching films of this nature because on one hand I really like them, but on the other hand it kinda makes my hate people! And hate is a particulary strong word that I almost never use!
I feel that, that invisible divide will always be within people and the thought of it always makes me sad. We have so many similarities and such few differences but that is what we choose to see. It is what stops us from true freedom. This might be a topic for another day so let me not het into it. In conclusion, I really loved the film.
