HHN 24 in Review

I love when October comes around because that only means one massive thing for me Halloween Horror Nights or as we call it here in Orlando HHN. I was really excited this year because even though they had Walking Dead again, they also had a Halloween Housed based on Michael Myers which is one of my all time favorite classic characters. Unfortunately I had the chance to only go to four out of the eight houses due to the amount of waiting time. I would love to go again so I could experience the other four houses. I love HHN because I love the adrenaline I feel when I walk through the Houses and the Scare Zones to see the amount of creativity and work they put in.

                                    WELCOME to HHN 24 2014 at Universal Studios Orlando, FL. {My OOTD: Black Crop Top Dots, Highwaisted Denim Jeans- Lane Bryant,Black Vans, Red/ Black Plaid Shirt Target, Brown Bag Charlotte Russe, Ray Ban Aviators, 90’s choker Urban Outfitters, and Red Under top Forever 21. Red lips Kate Moss shade 107.}

This year was I was definitely not as impressed as I have been in previous years when it come to the Scare Zones. Honestly, I felt they lacked more actors, and they should have spread the Scare Zones throughout the park.  The Face Off scare zone was very interesting and intriguing it really is a really great photo opportunity area to take selfies,and photos with very unique creatures.

The Purge scare zone was really cool as far the main actor they had who was dressed in a business suit with a microphone basically inviting you in to the purge and talking to guest and creeping them out. This part was cool because it reminded me of the movie I just wish they had more scare actors in your face making you want to run the opposite ways. The voodoo scare zone was pretty vague, and nothing really scary just a little fog and nothing really worth screaming for.

Meanwhile, the houses were the main aspect of where Universal used its budget at, as well as the costuming, special effect makeup, and other special effects to make them incredible well at least some of them. From worst to best out of the four houses I went to personally goes like this:

4.) Aliens .V.S. Predators

Pro’s: Awesome Costuming Effects on.

Con’s: Was not scary at all. No one screamed, no one jumped, it was so easy to walk through, annoying exit route having to bend under a little tunnel.

3.) Halloween Michael Myers

Pro’s: It was awesome so many Michael Myers popping out and a surprise ending I won’t ruin,

Con’s: The line of 105 minutes was not worth it honestly though.

2.) From Dusk Till Dawn 

Pro’s: Keeps you jumping and on your toes and very close to the TV version of the show.

Con’s: I wish it would have been a longer walk through or bigger house for this.

1.) Walking Dead: Prison

Pro’s: So amazing from the moment you walk in and out of it. Definitely messes with your head which makes you more vulnerable to the unexpected scare actors, and the makeup effects were pretty darn scary. Walkers everywhere so beware! Definitely the best Walking Dead house so far in HHN.

Con’s: The flashing lights blinded the f*ck out of me and I almost ended up in a cage full of walkers.

The Housed I missed were: Roanoke – Cannibal Colony, Giggles & Gore Inc, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Dracula Untold- Reign of Blood.  😦

Now from my friends point of view who have attended the other four houses they have loved the clown house, and the doll house even better. They say those were pretty scary because the make up effects, and costuming were quite horrifying and they kept popping everywhere. These two houses the time I went had the less wait time so I would say if you want to make two houses that are really quick in time these would be it. I advise that you do Halloween, and Walking Dead first because the wait time are so ridiculous from 105 minutes and up. Obviously the Rocky Horror Picture Show was great, and Bill and Ted’s Experience was not as fun as other years it lacked material, it was only funny because of Nicki Minaj, and Disney’s Frozen as well as their magic band, and the rest was just kind of pushed in your face to make you laugh and it really wasn’t even funny. But the actors were good so I give them that.  If you do go to either HHN24 in Hollywood or Universal Orlando I want to hear from you. I want to know which were you favorite houses, and scare zones. And what did you like least?

Love,

E

A night with Alex & Sierra

Alex and Sierra are an American pop duo made up by Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton  who are a young couple both from Florida. They won the final season of The X Factor USA and were mentored by the one and only Mr. Simon Cowell who was in charge of the groups. Their debut album will be releasing October 7th, 2014 on Itunes if you do the pre-order right now its only $9.99 guys!  The couple both attended the University of Central Florida and came back here to promote their brand new music with Orlando’s Best Mix station MIX 105.1 FM who held a contest for their ALL ACCESS LOUNGE. Basically they choose a handful of winners and they get VIP Access to a 30 minute music performance, Q&A, and finally Meet & Greet opportunities. Because I am always in the mix I submitted my information and while I was in Texas I got a called I won and I got to go.  This was held in the beautiful Aloft Hotels in Downtown Orlando by MIX 105.1 FM and I got my meet and greet band and enjoy the show.

When they first came in everyone was kind of stunned and applauded. Right off the bat they introduced themselves and started playing their new exclusive songs from their album as well as covers. They answered questions about the show, and what their plans are while they are in town. Afterwards were the awesome meet and greets were basically it was the best thing ever. Since it was a lounge and a couple of people we actually got time to go by pairs or one by one and after taking a professional pic from the staff you could actually talk to them a for a minute or two and then move on.

The quickest interview I go to do was to ask them at least three questions:

They give the biggest most humble hugs let’s make that clear I loved it.

1.) Me: “Who would be your wildest collaboration to work with?”

Alex: “Paul McCartney without a doubt.”

Sierra: “Really? Oh Yeah Paul McCartney yes that would be great”.

2.) Me:What about Adele? Would you want to record a song with Adele since you have similar sounds in acoustics?

Alex: “Oh My God Yes!

Sierra: “Are you kidding of course that would be amazing.

3.) Me: “So would you mind us three taking a selfie for the blog?”

Alex:No way! Let’s do it!”

Me: “So I’m short I’ll go in the middle. Do you want to take it?”

Alex: “For sure! I got it I’m going to show you a trick.”

Sierra: “He is great at taking selfies!”

All three of us pose crazy faces *Snap Snap*

All three of us look at the camera  and say NICE! 

Alex: “Glad you could make it it was great meeting you!”

Sierra: “Thank you for everything!”

Me: Thank you meeting you both is as awesome as our selfie!

Alex and Sierra closed in on another big hug, signed an autograph, and on to the next person and after everyone was done they escorted them out. They are so great live! I really love their music because their voices harmonize so well together. I cannot wait for their debut “Its About Us” to be released who have been working with top names in the industry like Julian Bunetta, Jason Mraz, Harry Styles, and John Legend.  Their debut single “Scarecrow” its one of my favorite songs  but the one that I think will make charts and everyone new favorite will be the song that this album is named after  “Its About Us” because its a ballad with amazing lyrics for those romantics out there.

If you like, love, hated but still love, and want more hit that like and share buttons 😉

Love,

E ❤

Life Update #2

“Life is beautiful and there is so much to be grateful about even on the stormy days” – Evetzie B.

Here is my life update Numero dos. It has been quite a while since I have written another  personal life update which means a lot of months has passed by. I love to share with you my crazy stories from the entertainment world, personal point of views, industry, pop culture, celebrities, concerts but rarely did I share personal stories until recently.

The reason why because I like to keep certain things in my life private. But honestly its not the first time that I have opened up to topics that are closed to my heart. Like for example I suffered from depression from a lot of things that caused it growing up. I have been way better after years of battling with it.  But I honestly feel like when you are passionate in life about something it can literally be of therapy and a source of inspiration to see the better things in life.

For me God, my blog, and music has been the reasons of why I can open myself up to talk with others who have had or are suffering from depression, eating disorders, and so on. I feel like when I share my story with others not only do they learn something new but I learn something new, and it feels almost like family.  There are so many young girls out there who I have recently talked with and they are so lost, confused, and so hard on themselves because of things that either we can or cannot change. It hurts to hear or see their suffering and I just wish they could know how beautiful and worthy they are. I am not writing this because of pity but because I want you to know that this is not the end there are better things ahead and if you would just believe that with all your heart and mind you could see and feel it too.

A couple months ago I found myself lost and it had been building up for years. Meanwhile, in people’s eyes I looked like the happiest girl in the world and truth is I was not. I was happy and grateful for some things but people didn’t know the hell I was battling with inside. It wasn’t until I really hit rock bottom emotionally that I really asked myself and to God what is my purpose in life? No I am not talking about anything drastic but I found myself pondering what was it? I really prayed and ask God to really point me to the right direction because my faith was completely lost.  Thankfully after a good girl’s trip to NYC when I came back it finally hit me that I had to follow my passion or it was going to be it. So after considering things I finally went for what my passion for music and entertainment was in the entertainment and broadcasting industry.

Months later, life threw an extreme curveballs but I refused to let myself sink. Being human at the end of the day you kind of lose yourself in the negatives but once you learn how to control your thoughts and let the positive vibes kick in there is nothing that can bring you down. I have learned to ask God for patience, understanding, faith, peace, and knowledge everyday. I am not perfect and I will never be but I am learning everyday something new and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities and blessings that will lie ahead. I am writing this not make myself sound good but because I do think we have to open up our mouths and share our stories little by little with others. You never know if your neighbor, friend, or someone else could be going through the same things as you, similar or worse. We need to learn to spread the love, and understand one another.

For now I can say I am happy with the way my life is going and even if some days things look grey I am grateful for the things that I had, have, experienced, and for the ones I hope come. My prayers is that you never put yourself down to raise other people standards. You are one of a kind for all the right reasons be yourself and when things get rough don’t give up.

Here are some of my favorite quotes, sayings, or lyrics that keep me happy:

  • “Do small things with great love” -unknown
  • “You don’t need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it’s fun. Because it makes you happy”- unknown
  • “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I beleive that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tommorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles” – Audrey Hepburn
  • “A beautiful heart can bring things into your life that all the money in the world couldn’t obtain”- unknown
  • “Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves” Princess Diana
  • “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them” – Albert Einstein
  • ” I think you can have it all you just have to work really hard, because great things don’t come easily” – Katy Perry
  • “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place” – Miriam Adeney

And the one I dear hold in my heart:

  • Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Love Always,
