it was my VERY VERY dear markus molinari’s birthday yesterday…
to kick off the big birthday bash, markus teamed up with LA’s efg, monster energy drinks & life & style magazine and threw HOUSE OF MOLINARI @ hip LA venue h.wood.
our favorites katy perry & ferras took the stage to perform their original jams, our super super dear mia moretti spun the night away at the deejay booth & our misses newly nineteen leven rambin hit the dance floor with fellow celebrity blogger perez hilton, designer brian lichtenberg & our favorite matt dallas.
katy perry completed the night with a rendition of “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”
