This past weekend GBK hosted their Pre-Oscar Luxury Lounge at a private estate in Beverly Hills. The chic AF residence was the perfect landscape for attendees to relax and prep for the biggest night in Hollywood, The 89th Academy Awards.

Burke Williams explained their latest additions to the menu as well as provided more information about its newly opened Hollywood location. The Hollywood location is the epitome of 'old Hollywood,' the colors and overall feel of the spa is complete glam! 

Created with the mission to empower women, Snarky Tea, is just that - it's tea with a heaping side of 'SASS!' Composed of six blends, each tea comes with it's own 'love note,' with thoughts we have all pretty much said to our best friend at some point or another. Mesa Dental was onsite and discussed its practice in Costa Rica. Providing exceptional dental care for patients all over the world is a mantra that holds true.
