The Day I Saw Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley have been my idols for soo long. I used to wish I could meet them one day, but never imagined I'd actually see them. I remember when I was around 12 years old switching the tv to nickelodeon and Two of a kind was on. It must have been good, as even my mum sat watching Two of a kind. The next time my mum wanted to go to the shops she was looking at the dvd's and spotted "Our lips are sealed" dvd. She goes oh look it's those twins and said do you want that dvd? From that moment my collection grew. I bought every dvd, cd, makeup, perfume, book. Other celebs I liked their song, or movie and grew out of them, but I think because Mary-Kate and Ashley, it was like growing up with them watching all their movies. When I heard Mary-Kate and Ashley got a star on the wall of fame in Hollywood, I went to Hollywood to see it.  

I knew I'd booked to go to New York during New York fashion week, but never imagined I'd see them. Everytime I went to New York I'd joke to my mum and friends saying this time I'll bump into Mary-Kate or Ashley walking along the street. 

I arrived in New York on Sunday September 11th. I couldn't wait to visit The Row shop which opened in May. I met up with Scott from New York and we headed along to the store on 17e 71st street, but it looked closed. Scott goes to the people standing outside when is it next open ? They said they are doing construction work and will be back open on the Tuesday. 

I woke up on the Monday morning thinking it was strange The Row was shut for construction work, considering it only just opened in May. It was like something telling me "go back past the shop". 

I walked back up to 17e 71st street and there was quite a few photographers, black cars and security. I thought to myself photographers won't stand there for nothing. 

First I spotted Mary-Kate Olsen's husband Olivier Sarkozy step out the The Row. It was really strange, as I'd only seen him in magazines and online photos. I thought I'll never see him again, this is a once in a life time. I ran after him and said hi can I get my photo with you. He replied am not very good at that sort of thing. I thought ok he obvious doesn't like getting his photo taken, so I walked away. Then photographers were taking photos of him. I ran back to him and took his photo. He must have thought I was a weirdo walking away and running back haha. 

Then Ashley Olsen stepped out and Mary-Kate came out after. These photos look abit paparazzi, but I did try shout Ashley like others, but she didn't look for anyone. 

If Mary-Kate or Ashley ever stumbles on my blog, I hope they don't hate me for the photos. I've always been a fan of them and love buying their products. Am so glad I got to experience seeing them in person, it's like a dream come true. I used to have people telling me to give up buying Mary-Kate and Ashley products I'll never meet them and they are so yesterday. Now whenever anyone says I'll never see Mary-Kate and Ashley, I can say I've seen them. 

I read online this was The Row fashion show for New York fashion week. 

It was the best day of my life, untill my wedding day and my kids come along. Dreams do come true, you just have to never give up.  

P.S am aware fansites have stolen these photos, without my permission. These photos were taken by myself and are only for my blog -
