Last week, I had an absolutely amazing time in New York for Mark.’s Tenth Birthday Party! This whole experience was such a blast, and I couldn’t wait to get home and share the pictures with you guys!
One of the huge highlights of the trip was getting to meet Mark.’s celebrity brand ambassador, Lucy Hale! I love Pretty Little Liars and ever since it first came on, I’ve thought that Lucy was absolutely adorable!
I’ve been lucky enough to meet a bunch of celebrities between different events and fashion week — sometimes they’re sweet and sometimes they’re not, so let me tell you: she was darling. After being awake for 36 hours (seriously! yikes!), she was a total pro — fielding interview questions about Mark. and her involvement with m.powerment (they look good and do good, raising over $1 million to combat dating abuse and violence), and teaching us a few ballet positions at the end of the meet and greet. She’s totally goofy and seriously just the cutest. I was a total fan before, and even more so now!
And the party itself was a total blast! We sipped champagne, ate birthday cake, and got a surprise performance from Mark.’s newest cover model, R&B singer Elle Varner! I felt so incredibly lucky and thrilled to go — I knew the party was going to be so much fun, but it was even better than I’d imagined!
Happy tenth birthday to Mark., and many more!
