Just a few short weeks after filming wrapped on the seventh and final season of "Pretty Little Liars," Troian Bellisario is still keeping busy — though she still insists she's getting much more sleep these days.

The 31-year-old actress, who is also in the midst of planning a wedding with "Suits" actor Patrick Adams, teamed up with Origins to celebrate the opening of their new store in Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida, on Wednesday.

Thank you everyone who came to say hello today at the new @origins store and since we took so many selfies please remember to post them and tag @origins and #kisstheplanet #originsdogoodcampaign to help us reforest local FLORIDA state parks with longleaf pines! Snap a selfie in the new store and plant a 🌲🌳🌿🍃

Though the turnout was massive, Bellisario fit in time to chat with AOL.com about her skincare routine, the emotional end of "Pretty Little Liars" and the "circus" that is wedding planning.

Check it out below:

Tell me about your partnership with Origins and why it was important to you.

I'm excited to be down here. Origins is opening their first free-standing store in seven years, and they're doing it at Disney Springs, which is pretty awesome. I was excited to come down here and check out the store and tell everybody why I really love the products and the brand so much.

What's your skincare routine like?

Since I'm on set a lot, you have to wear a lot of makeup and you get it reapplied, and you start very early in the morning and you go very late at night. The really important thing is making sure you have a very good cleanser at the end of the day to remove it all off of your skin and a moisturizer to sort of put back all of the minerals and moisture that have been sucked out over the day by the makeup itself. Then I try every week, or sometimes twice a week, to use a really good mask. Origins has this original skin retexturizing rose clay mask that I really like, and they also have a wonderful charcoal mask. That's just fun for me to throw on at the end of the week on a Sunday before I go into my next week of work and make sure that I clear out all of my pores and get my skin ready.

HIDE CAPTION

Speaking of work, you recently wrapped "Pretty Little Liars." I could only imagine how emotional it was. I know we saw a lot of it on social media, but tell me a little bit more about the experience.

It was really emotional. What in your life generally lasts for seven years? It's longer than high school, it's longer than college, it's longer than most people stay in one place at a job -- so it was a really intense experience to say goodbye to it, and also to know it was never going to be there again.

I'm really, really excited that the fans have a whole other season that's going to air in spring of 2017, but it's just weird to think that I'll never be able to go back to the Warner Bros. lot and see Spencer's living room and hang out and talk to Keegan [Allen, who plays Spencer's on-and-off love interest on the show] in his dressing room, or that we won't have the same cast and crew of amazing people in the same place ever again. It was very overwhelming. It was exciting -- it's exciting for all of us to be moving on to the next step in our careers and our lives, but it was very sad as well.

I could only imagine. Are you all planning on watching the finale together?

I'm really hoping -- I can't say anything yet as to where we're going to do it, but I started to push for a specific location that's very near and dear to my heart, so I'm kind of hoping we'll be able to watch the finale all together as a cast and crew, but also invite a bunch of fans. I would love to do it as a live airing in a big theatre, but I can't say where because we haven't nailed it down yet. I'm stoked to watch it, because it was a really great episode for me.

What does life after "Pretty Little Liars" look like for you?

It looks like a lot less alarm clocks. I'm sleeping in for the first time in my life, and it's awesome -- I feel like it's something that I should tell everybody about, sleep in while you can.

I'm just really trying to take it easy. There are a lot of things that I'm planning for in my life -- I have a wedding, and that takes up a lot of time, but I'm just really trying to enjoy my family and enjoy quiet time and really rest and recuperate. Seven years is a long time, and it's really nice to finally have some time for myself.

Speaking of wedding planning, are you deep into it? What's been the hardest part so far?

That every time I answer one email, five emails come back in return. I don't understand how anybody plans a wedding. It's almost like producing a film, I gotta say. It might be as stressful, if not more stressful, than producing films. [It's] a circus.

Also, the holidays are coming up. Anything on your wish list?

I sort of had a lot of it taken care of today. I was in the Origins store and I got to pick up a lot of different products that I had my eye on for a while, so I was really excited to get those and give those away as gifts. I think a lot of my friends and family are going to enjoy that.

Then for my wish list, I don't really have a lot. I just want to be able to finally have some time to see the people that I love and get to spend some quiet time with them and get to really enjoy the break. That's about it.
