As I said in my title- all great things must come to an end... i have been so blessed this summer. it has truly been a life changing experenice.. I will never be the same and I'm so thankful for this summer taking me into the next level of my life.
I loved all the interns and I'm excited to see that they had a great experience too! Everyone worked so hard and thier efforts have truly been noticed!

It's Hannah Parrish again. The Public Relations Intern here at mark. This has been the most amazing experience so far, I can't believe there are less than 3 weeks left!
The 4th of July was a few weeks ago but I'm still excited about the Macy's fireworks display. Here is the view from the Columbia rooftop. Beautiful.
In other news. I finally spotted Rob Pattinson. He was with Kristen Stewart at Terminal 5 at The Dead Weather concert. Kanye West and Jay-Z were also in attendance.

It’s Claire, the creative intern, and I just wanted to give a quick update about what has been going on with us at mark.
This has been another busy week, and I can’t believe the internship is almost over. Our big field trip this week was visiting the Avon Research and Development facility in Suffern, NY. After an interesting time navigating the trains, we all finally made it to the Avon facility. While there, we heard from a couple speakers about product development and about what goes on in the building.
Later, we got to tour the facility…it was so cool! They showed us where they make products, where they store all their different product shades, and how they test each product to make sure it’s the best it can be for consumers. I was impressed by how much attention to detail there is at Avon and it was really interesting to see everything a product goes through before it is available for purchase. To the right is a picture of the mark. interns (plus Janet and Dawn!) on the red lip couch that is in the building.
We have also been doing lots of fun things outside of work. After touring the Research and Development facility, I went with my roommate Taylor (the marketing intern) to see the Broadway production of The Little Mermaid. It was so fun and I am really glad we were able to go see it.
Also, if you’re ever in NYC and need something sweet, I highly recommend Serendipity 3. You might have to wait a while to get a table, but they have amazing ice cream sundaes. Their frozen hot chocolates are also delicious. I got a Forbidden Broadway Sundae the other night…it was pretty much the most amazing thing ever! Chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and chocolate chips. Luckily, I had lots of help eating it :) Here is a picture of my sundae:

My name is Hanna, and no, I'm not kidding- there are three of us. This summer, it’s my job to help mark team up with some of the hottest celebs, stylists and makeup artists in the industry as the Alliance intern. Hey, it beats scooping ice cream in New Hampshire all summer, right?
As we plow head-on into the “over the hump” halfway point of our internship, I am super pumped for this upcoming week! Not only do I get to celebrate my 20th birthday and (four year anniversary with mark!) with the entire intern crew, but we are heading off tonight for round two of Gabrielle Bernstein time. At 7:00 p.m., the girls and I are attending motivational speaker turned author’s workshop on “mirroring.” Tonight she will explain (and give us the Readers Digest version) of the anciently rooted Law of Attraction. The workshop is centered around the power of positive energy. Come on guys, it’s time for us to get hip to the idea that what we see in ourselves is what we will get out of the world around us. And although quantum physics is not my area of expertise, nor is it part of my job description, I think this stuff is pretty cool! Gabrielle is one hooked-up woman making her mark! ;)
Enter: Beacon’s Closet. Think a 60s inspired vintage shop with an indie New York feel with a splash of Chanel thrown in. We discovered this thrifty find on our way into the borough, only to be greeted with storm brewing rainclouds. But I must say, maybe the silver lining was the $12.00 authentic Louis Vuitton bangle Claire, the creative intern, snatched up or the next to nothing Rock and Republic jeans outfitting the “sale” rack! Here’s a peek into my new favorite hotspot!

Here is a picture of the mark lobby:
Isn't it adorable?
Life in NYC is pretty exciting. This city is always moving and there are an endless variety of things to do. Weekends in the city are what I like to refer to as "exploring time." This basically consists of walking around as much of the city our legs and feet will allow us to. (We are also making good use of our Metro Cards).
On the subway with Taylor Skidmore (Marketing Intern), Claire Artelt (Creative Intern), Me (Hannah Parrish, Public Relations Intern), and Rachel Martino (Online Intern).
Stay tuned for more updates from the mark Summer 2009 interns.
Love and lip gloss,
