LUCY HALE, from the hit TV series, "Pretty Little Liars,"  is the new face for BENCH, endorsing new lines for OJ Americana.  This is also in celebration of the clothing line's 25th year anniversary.

I received two (2) invites for OJ Americana's Fashion Show which featured Lucy Hale, so I came with my friend, Eda, who was a fan of Lucy and the one who shared the news of Lucy's announcement to be part of the BENCH family.

The event took place on February 11th, 2012 at 4:30pm.

OJ Americana Invite/Pass

When we reached the 2nd floor of the SMX Convention Center, we were surprised with the long line of people entering the venue.  There were two doors, one for the "Promo" and the other for the "VIP."

Of course, we were first greeted with a huge Lucy Hale tarp on our way up to the venue.

My friend Eda, excited to see Lucy!

We were lucky because we get to sit at the VIP area where celebs are more often seated plus there was the buffet!

With the release of JASON MRAZ's new album, "LOVE is a FOUR LETTER WORD"  is the announcement of his most anticipated 2012 tour.

"TOUR is a FOUR LETTER WORD"  named after his latest album, will hit the road from June 8th to December 2012.   It was only October 30th of last year when Jason Mraz was in the Philippines for a concert held at the SMART Araneta Coliseum,  and sadly, we didn't make it to the list. :(   I know that the 11,000 fans who went to see him last time would be dissapointed.  I know coz' I am one of them...  :(

The entire tour would start with an Asian tour and concert in Hawaii in June, US and Canada from August to October, then November to December at  UK territories.

NKOTBSB: One Night One Stage Once in a Lifetime Concert in Manila

Finally, after months of anticipating whether the NKOTBSB tour will head over to Manila or not,  Ovation Productions released and promoted the concert, 2nd week of April.    I was already determined to see the boys in Indonesia (yes, no kidding! ^_*) thinking that Jakarta will be the only Asian Country they will be visiting after their UK Tour, so thank you Ovation!

For those who didn't know, NKOTBSB came about after the two bands, New Kids On The Block, and Backstreet Boys, performed together at the Radio City Music Hall in 2010.  They later announced an album and encouraged fans to vote for songs they want to be in it.  Nearly 250,000 fans voted (including me!) and so the rest is history! =)

Catch them in Manila on June!
