Rainbow Eyes

This makeup was inspired by nature and God’s word in the scripture as my daily Bible verse of the day popped up on my phone screen.

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth . . . and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” Genesis 9:12-13

Makeup is all about self expression and when it comes to bright colors I go wild with it, no limitations at all.  I love to go bold and dramatic once in a while, and today was one of those days.

STEP 1:

Starting off with .M.A.C. PREP + PRIME Fixator I sprayed all over my face and let it sit for a few seconds before applying my Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette which is basically concealers to cover up all those blemishes, dark circles, or unwanted spots.Side Note: I love concealers since they have a thicker composition than foundation specially if they are high pigmented for better long lasting coverage. Then I used from Sephora’s Signature Collection 10 Hr wear Perfection Foundation  which is oil free  and it its has a medium coverage in clair light 23 shade. I find that its amazing because it doesn’t feel heavy on my face and it controls my oily skin providing a good amount of coverage and its not too expensive.

STEP 2

On my lids I apply just a touch of Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion; this will create a great long lasting crease free base for your eyeshadow providing high pigmented look all day. For my look I used high pigmented eye shadows from BH Cosmetics in the Second Edition 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette. Starting from the outside corners of my eyes I used the following colors of eyeshadow: purple blending into  blue and green on my left eye. Meanwhile on my right eye from the outside in I used fuchsia, orange, and yellow.

Using my Toki Doki Brushes  I dabbed my brushed on each color one by one, cleaning my brush  in between as I did each color differently I normally clean it with Sephora’s Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner. This will help to keep your eye shadow palette last longer clean from the debris of the other colors. Then I used my blending brush to blend out the creme shade above the eye and the white highlighting under the arch of my brows.  The same way you color your lids, repeat the same colors at the bottom of your water line.

STEP 3

Apply the black NYX Studio Liquid Liner along your top lid from the inside out for a perfect wide cat eye like Adele’s.  Then apply any regular black or colored eyeliner at the waterline the rest. Then apply Ulta’s black Legendary Lengths Lengthening Mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

Step 4

Add your choice of contouring (optional)

Apply your choice of setting powder; I personally use MAC Studio Fix Powder which is both a powder / foundation pigmented. Because it gives that nice matte airbrushed effect and it really prevents any oils during the day. BEST BUY

Apply NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm start by outlining your lips a little from the outside of your regular lips for a fuller look and work your way in. You can always add an ombre effect by adding darker or lighter shade in the middle (optional).

Finish off by spraying .M.A.C.’s Prep and Prime Fix. This will keep your makeup last for long hours during the day all the way till night time. Depending on how much you sweat its always a good idea to reapply setting powder here and there. But for the most part it will keep your eyeshadow and eyeliner from running everywhere.  BEST BUY if you really love not having to reapply your eyeshadow all the time.

There you go! How easy was that! If you give this look a try, make sure you give this post a thumbs up and share with your friends. Make sure to hashtag #rainbowtopchartsbabe and tag me @evetzie_styles on Instagram! 😀 I would love to give you a like back.

A letter from the heart

As most of you know I work in the entertainment and fashion industry. As I sat in my studio today designing, and also working in other projects I got a little frustrated and had to stop. Breath some fresh air and continued what i was working on. As you all know music is one of my biggest passions but as I karaoke my heart out to new music from my favorite singers it hit me people don’t value any kind of artistry very much. Which is something that I have always felt deep inside my heart and I know cause I have seen it first hand. I have helped, worked, seen start up artist’s, musicians, painters, writers, designers, and etc like myself struggle in the midst of our passions and career.

So when people complain about paying a certain price for like a concert ticket, design, or anything creative and artistic it makes me want to  tell them to go to neverland and never come back. Do you know how hard are the struggles for a person that loves and has a passion for any kinds  art or any musical artistry. Which is why I believe with all my heart we should give credit when credit is due. So before you speak to me ever about how ridiculous it is for something like music, design, or art to be so expensive remind yourself all these things I will mention next.

As an artist one the financial cost : You have to pay everything yourself including being your own manager, promoter, everything when you are starting out. You really make close to nothing;it takes a while to start getting all the goods. And by “a while” I don’t mean a few months. It could take years and years until someone else in labels or talent managers see your vision. It takes studio time  which are not cheap, recording, producing, editing, mastering and more. Once you have made it touring is expensive a whole crew from loading,production, wardrobe, dancers, riggers, traveling, Visas, Passports, Insurances, all the legal aspect of  it too, and so much more you can’t begin to even wrap your head around it all. There’s so much more not to even mention when it comes to recording sessions, rehearsals, planning, songwriting, record labels, promoting team, royalties. Plus during the tour life the crew in the arena listen to the stage and technical managers to work on trusses  which what hold all of the lights, speakers, and pyros sometimes takes about 30 local workers, 4 tour riggers, and with very limited hours for example 5 or less to accomplish everything before the show starts. Staging has to be assembled piece by piece. You have screens that have to be hung in flawless placements. All of the technical detail features for the band. Last minute sound check before every show all in less than a day and hours for a perfect show. This is not including all the other backstage chaos and crew that is behind the scene, on or off stage, runners, costume designers, assistants, makeup artist’s, hair stylist, wardrobe specialists, seamstresses, dancers, management, special guests, other bands, security team, and etc.  So much planning, efforts, emotional, and budgeting goes into every album, every tour, everything artist do. It takes a whole team not just the lead singer or solo artist to make a show or album what it is. That is why royalties are so important and are rights that artist’s fight for when it comes to  streaming platforms that make things free to people but then the people who are working their asses for it don’t really see a cent from it and its not fair.

Two as a designer  that is art as well you can’t expect something that is one of a kind unique or amazing craftmanship for a low budget. Chanel, Alexander Mcqueen, all these great designers and even your local designers at home that work independently did not work their asses off their whole life tailoring, draping, workshops,  and etc  to get paid like department store. Not happening! While in tour life you also have from prop designers, costume designers, choreographers, stage managers all of these amazing individuals that come together as a team to make everything happen.

Three: Painters, Dancers, Poets, Writers, Actors are all amazing at what they do and deserve the same of respect as every other career out there. We do it, because we love it and we cannot see ourselves doing anything else but it. Any kind of art you should embrace it and it should make you move whether its your soul, your style, or whatever fancies you. But don’t ever let it die. Support your local artist they are the ones that needed the most. And support songwriters and locals that are starting up because that is the hardest part of all. Not when you are already successful and selling out arenas.

To all of those who are starting out and even note to self at times is never give up, believe in the power of your dreams, and everything comes at perfect timing no matter how many time the iron strikes hot. To the world changers!!

love always,

E

Music Festivals Ban Selfie Sticks

festival

Anyone who has been to a music festival knows maintaining personal space is not an option. Trust me I can tell you from personal experiences where I have gotten shoved, walked on almost, and thrown sideways thanks to the people fighting next to me. Like seriously can’t we just enjoy the damn music?

Well speaking of getting your personal space invaded by idiots, this summer’s most highly anticipated music festivals are taking a stand against selfie sticks. Both Coachella and Lollapalooza are banning selfie sticks and other GoPro attachments. Australia’s Soundwave Festival and several UK music venues including the O2 Arena, SSE Wembley Arena and O2 Academy Brixton have also joined in agaisn’t selfie sticks.

festival

Too bad they won’t do the same at theme parks here in Orlando. Seriously every five steps there is someone with a selfie stick stopping in the middle of your pathway taking a group selfie….wait for it… vacation groups of 30 or more. Yup! So if you are planning on going to any of these huge music festivals make sure to read what you are allowed in and time to take your old school camera and selfies. Although you can choose to actually pay attention for your money’s worth to every performance that hits the stage instead of taking photos of your flower crown and Kylie Jenner’s lips.

Kylie

Listen I love selfie sticks when I am with a group of friends hanging out but a couple of minutes not as a whole day thing. Now I love the idea of having a selfie stick or a GoPro for concerts and festivals if you are really short like me and you can’t see crap. But at the same time I understand how annoyed I get when I have someone in front or behind me with a selfie stick in small amount of personal space. I feel invaded and with the amount of heat we get here in Orlando on the summer time I would hate to be in a music festival with sweaty people touching my skin as they take a selfie. Imagine trying to enjoy a performance by Hozier or Fall Out Boy and have someone in front of you with a selfie stick in the middle of your favorite performances not letting you enjoy watching your singers or bands. I would and will throw a fit with how expensive these tickets are, are you kidding?  And the reasoning for this action :selfie sticks obscured the view for other people in the crowd, noting the increased amount of sticks in the crowd in music festivals. Like some people like to call them selfish sticks.  Because they make you take up a lot more space in a crowded place than you should invading other people’s personal space.

What are your thoughts?

Starbucks .V.S. Music Revolution

As most of my Instagram followers would know I am a full time Starbucks lover and I promise I don’t even get paid for anything, I just really do love it. From their delicious frappuccinos, coffee, logo and of course design aesthetic and ambience. What in the world is there not to love about it besides the expensive amount of money you’re getting in a cup of coffee? 😉

929244_345373142323629_2023940174_n

Anyways, unless you live under a rock and you’ve never been inside of any Starbuck’s well let me tell you that they also sell breakfast, packaged snacks, lunches, and music… not to mention your’e missing out on some really good frapps.

starbucksingrid

I love that they give you a FREE download card for Itunes with the “Pick Of The Week” with the artist they are promoting at that time. They also sell EP’s or CD’s however you want to call them, and being Starbucks yes sometimes they are a little bit overpriced but I still got a copy of the fabulous Ingrid Michaelson’s “LIGHTS OUT” album. I also enjoyed the fact that it was a coffee shop that still represented the more music lover inspired open minded people who would say im gonna by a record and still feel like a physical experience.

card

Fun Fact: Did you know that the first CD the store offered was back in 1994, by Kenny G?

Well, as much as I love technology and I love the fact that you can download things straight to your laptop and have a library that can hold thousands of songs on your IPod, I still am very much old school too. I love being able to buy actual vinyl records, casette’s, and cd’s. Just like I still hold on to VHS movies and home made videos even if you can’t tell almost what the image is. Okay maybe I am taking a little too literal right there, but the point is that I really love the experience of being able to have physical copies in my hand of the music that I love listening to.

vinyls

Why get rid of the CDs? Well apparently Starbuck’s is trying to “evolve” its music offerings.  Though they say that they will stay in the music business digitally, I feel like it won’t be the same experience as it used to be. For some of you just walk in straight for your coffee but for other people like me, we would check out what they had new in stock while we got our order and sit down as we enjoyed our frapp. The music was always an added value when in came to Starbucks as when it first originally started their “discovering” artists for their customers to listen to.  I understand that with how fast technology is constantly changing companies and society will always want the latest and best trends as part of growing and evolving.  But sometimes by changing one thing you are really limiting the next generation to come of enjoying some of the greatest life experiences from the past.

By the way did you know that you can now get the “ARIANA GRANDE” Starbuck’s Frapp.  Thanks to the lovely Loryn Brantz at Buzzfeed for the recipe and idea. I really have to go try this frapp while I listen to “One Last Time” on my car.

How to order:

  • Start with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino w/ Raspberry Syrup (aka the Cotton Candy Frappuccino)
  • Add extra mocha syrup
  • Add extra mocha chips
  • Blend
  • Top with extra whipped cream
  • Finish with a generous caramel drizzle

Concert Review: Blake Shelton – Ten Times Crazier Tour & Dan+Shay Experience.

BACK STORY: Surprising Mom!

10644019_697061297045064_23490904_n

Back in January my mother’s birthday came around and I really had no idea what to get her. She was driving me insane with how much she loves The Voice and how she could watch it a thousand times as long as they kept Blake Shelton on the panel. I, in the other hand agreed with her to watching all seasons as long as they kept my “boyfriend” Adam Levine. So as mother and daugther we have a tradition of watching The Voice now. Then one day I told her “Mom, I swear if Blake Shelton ever comes to a concert I will buy you Meet & Greet Passes just to see your reaction if you meet him” and laughed it off. Her on the other hand stared at me “Really? I don’t know how would I event start speaking to him”. But that’s when I realized that could always be a good idea for a gift. So as a totally amazing daugther right? I went online and search for Blake Shelton Tour Dates and I saw that Orlando was listed for his recent Ten Times Crazier Tour. The tickets were not on sale yet so I had to subscribe for the special pre-sale code. Three days later my mom tells me we are going out of town to visit family and that we were leaving at the same time and day as the tickets went on sale. I panicked and try to stall so I could purchase the tickets away from her. But we had to leave and I had no access to the internet so I tried downloading the Livenation/ Ticketmaster app but it wasn’t working on my phone. So I emergency texted my two older cousins so they could buy the pair of tickets but they were unavailable. I freaked out and while my mother was driving I was trying to keep it together while watching the tickets slowly being taken away from my hold. Finally by a miracle I get enough WiFi to score the tickets but it was too late for the Meet & Greet Packages. But thankfully I got us close enough and the results on August 30th, 2014 were totally worth it. Because I had the chance to repay my mother a little bit back for all the things she has done for the both of us. Yeah sounds cliche but there was no better feeling than seeing her get all emotional and excited like a total fan girl when she found out I got her tickets to see her favorite country singer and man Blake Shelton. She even teared up. THE FEELS!

CONCERT TIME:

Held on August 30th, 2014 at the Amway Centre in Orlando, Florida.

Opening Acts: Neal McCoy,Dan & Shay, and The Band Perry.

shelton1.jpg

Neal McCoy was the Host & Entertainer from beginning, middle, and end of the show. He knew how to keep everyone entertained as he performed various songs with his band as well as paying tribute to Michael Jackson. He was very funny and a pleasure to listen to. 

Dan and Shay is Nashville’s new duo Dan + Shay (consisting of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) who took the stage and rocked out to songs off of their album “Where It All Began”. Their original sound of a mix between rock/pop and country. Its like Rascal Flatts ,One Republic, and Usher meets Lady Antebellum. They are very talented they sound so amazing and flawless live its like listening to their album with more adrenaline and passion. I definitely see a bright future ahead full of more albums and success for this group.  Some of my favorite songs that they performed are “Stop, Drop,& Roll”, “Show You Off”, and “I Heard Goodbye”. They are both very handsome and their voices are perfectly arranged in pitch, harmony, and eloquently with their lyrics.

After their performance I got a Meet & Greet Bracelet to meet Dan+Shay after the concert ended. I ran up the stairs from were my seats where across the arena and did a line and I made it just in time before they started closing the line up even IF you had your meet & greet pass (which sucked for some fans). They definitely didn’t expect that many fans at their Meet & Greet. I befriended the couple in front of me and made small talk and all of the sudden I saw Dan and I was like “Oh Crap I am going to forget my name” and the lady just laughed at me and said “Oh honey I’ll be right at the exit in case you faint to help you”. I definitely didn’t think I was that nervous but I gathered myself up and when it was my turn I handed my camera to their assistant. Dan said “Hi how are you? Thanks for getting our album” as I handed him my album for him to autograph. I told him my name and somehow I just blurted out “Of course you guys are very talented, and you’re BEAUTIFUL”. As soon as I said it and realized what I just had said I think my face was pretty much flushed red. -_- … like seriously? But Dan was a real sweetheart and in nano seconds was like “No, YOU’RE Beautiful” and smiled and I was like Eeeppp! Total Fan girl Moment right there! So i smiled said thank you and as Shay signed my CD he places it on the table next to him and then surprises himself and says “Oh Wow you really are” and I’m like what just happened?. So I smile trying to get myself together in between these two and ended up in this awesome photo:

The Band Perry needs no introduction they are one of the most successful bands in Country Music. For those who don’t know much about country music let me give you a quick glance. The Band Perry is a group composed of three siblings Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, and Neil Perry. They all have vocals and play all kinds of instruments. They released their first self titled album back in October of 2010. Their second album Pioneer was released three years in April 2013 with their number one song “If I Die Young”. The song reached number one on the U.S Billboard Hot Country songs, Hot Adult Contemporary charts, and has been certified quadruple platinum! Some of their top hit songs from their second album also include “Better Dig Two”, “Done”, “Chainsaw”, and “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”. All of these songs were performed that night and it was incredible. I had never had the chance to see them live and I am so glad I did. They are very humble and they definitely know how to own that stage and keep the crowd wanting more. They graphics in the backdrop screens had really cool lyrics, images of sparrows, and the bands initials “TBP” displaying while they sang different songs.

Blake Shelton: The Man Of The Hour!

So by this point as soon as the Blake came out being revealed on the stage as the curtains rise up my mom literally freaked. And that was the best thing ever! See the pic below:

BeFunky_IMG_1919.jpg

blake.jpg

He literally emerged from the top  of a short stairway and performed “All About Tonight”. He is so tall, so handsome, and so humble. He loves to talk a lot and i mean A LOT! But that made the crowd cheer even more and a true connection. He would stop mid sentence and thank everyone for showing up and showing him support. He even made a Twitter joke which was quite funny about how people from the industry thought no one was going to show up but guess what? Orlando represented country music and the love for Blake to a topnotch. One of my favorite songs of course was ‘Kiss My Country Ass”, “Neon Light”, “Footloose”, “Mine Would Be You”, “Boys Round Here”, and the one that broke my heart “Over You”. A song he wrote along with his wife Miranda Lambert after his brother passed away. This song is so emotional and seeing him perform it live left me speechless. Therefore he teared up because it so close to his heart. He also sang his own cover to  Michael Bublé’s “Home” into a lovely country ballad and the crowd made even more lovely when they all lit up the arena with their cellphones.

10624527_663084993787337_1806010033_n

And of course he sang a couple of more upbeat songs before the concert ended. Bottom line all performers were great, very talented, very upbeat, fun, and definitely not my last country concert!! So if you liked this post please give it a LIKE! ❤ thanks for reading!

Love,

Love Always,

MY REVIEW ON TAYLOR SWIFT’S “THE RED TOUR 2013” FT. ED SHEERAN

HI FASHIONMINIES!
559957_366319170130156_160739720_n_large
SO I HAVE TO UPDATE YOU ALL ON MY LIFE AND THE “OH SO AMAZING” EXPERIENCES I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN THESE COUPLE OF MONTHS.
SO AS ALL OF YOU KNOW I HAD PURCHASED TICKETS LAST YEAR TICKETS FOR TAYLOR SWIFT’S RED TOUR 2013 THIS MAY. AND WHY TAYLOR SWIFT ANYWAYS?… WELL MOST OF YOU KNOW I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF TAYLOR’S THOUGH I ENJOY SOME OF HER SONGS I WOULD NEVER EVER GO TO ONE OF HER CONCERTS, OR SO I THOUGHT? I AM PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE PHRASE “NEVER SAY NEVER” YEAH I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THAT MYSELF.

SO LONG STORY SHORT I  FOUND OUT THAT  ONE OF MY FAVORITE  AND ALL TIME FAVORITES BRITISH SINGER AND SONGWRITER GRAMMY NOMINATED  ED SHEERAN WAS TAGGING ALONG” THE RED TOUR” AS ONE OF HER OPENING ACTS. RIGHT THEN AND THERE, THERE WAS NO QUESTION IN MY MIND THAT I HAD TO GET TICKETS NOW FOR THIS CONCERT NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKE OR HOW MUCH I HAD TO PAY. I WAS SO EXCITED I COULDN’T SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TICKETS WERE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.  SO THEN I FIND OUT THAT THE TICKETS FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC WAS GOING TO BE RELEASED A LITTLE EARLIER BEFORE 10AM IF YOU WERE AT THE ACTUAL BOX OFFICE. SO I WAKE UP MAD EARLY THE NEXT DAY NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO BEAT TRAFFIC FROM EARLY MORNING DRIVERS, AND DRIVE THROUGH ALL DOWNTOWN ORLANDO AND FIND A PARKING SPACE. WHEN I GET THERE, THERE WAS A HUGE LINE AND I WAS LIKE “IS THIS FOR REAL?” AS I MADE MY WAY IN THE LINE AND WAITED ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE FANS THERE. AFTER WHAT SEEMED AND ETERNITY WAITING IN LINE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR I GOT TO THE WINDOW AND THE FRONT ROW AND VIP PIT WERE “SUPPOSEDLY” SOLD OUT ( WHICH EVERYONE KNOWS ITS A LIE! BUT WHATEVER!) SO I ENDED UP BUYING A PAIR OF TICKETS FOR $86.00 EACH ON THE LOWER LEVEL SECTION.

SO YES I WAS THERE MORE FOR ED SHEERAN THAN FOR TAYLOR SWIFT. BUT A GIRL HAS TO DO WHAT A GIRL HAS TO DO. SO I OBVIOUSLY KNOW TAYLOR SWIFT’S “RED” ALBUM AND ALL OF HER SONGS BECAUSE THIS ALBUM I THINK PERSONALLY HAS BEEN THE BEST ONE SO FAR. I THINK ITS BECAUSE ITS MORE FUN, AND IT HAS MORE SONGS I CAN RELATE TO RATHER THAN SOME OF HER OLD ALBUMS.

THE DAY OF THE CONCERT:
SO THE DAY OF THE CONCERT COMES AROUND AND I HAD REQUESTED THIS DAY OFF WORK LIKE LAST YEAR. SO ITS THE DAY OF THE CONCERT AND I AM SO EXCITED I CAN’T BELIEVE I WILL BE SEEING ED SHEERAN LIVE IN A FEW HOURS. I DEFINITELY DECKED OUT MY OUTFIT TO SHOW MY SUPPORT. SO PREVIOUS TO THIS I HAD BOUGHT ONLINE MONTHS AGO DIFFERENT THINGS SO I COULD MAKE THIS OUTFIT HAPPENED.

WHAT I WORE TO THE CONCERT:
– AN ED SHEERAN CARTOON TOP THAT HAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LINES FROM HIS SONG “KISS ME” WHICH READS:
“I’VE FALLEN FOR YOUR EYES BUT THEY DON’T KNOW ME YET – ED SHEERAN”
– AN ORANGE TANK TO GO UNDERNEATH
– BRIGHT BLUE SKINNY JEANS
– BRIGHT ORANGE FLATS
– ED SHEERAN’S “+” ALBUM COVER HANDMADE EARRINGS
– ED SHEERAN PERSONALIZED SILVER BRACELET WITH MY FAVORITE LINE FROM HIS SONG “WAKE ME UP” THE BRACELET READS: “MAYBE IM IN LOVE WITH YOU WHEN YOU WAKE ME UP”

MY HAIR: STRAIGHT MY MAKEUP: RED LIPS AKA RED TOUR DUH! LOL

MY NAILS WERE ED SHEERAN INSPIRED & UNIQUE:
BRIGHT ORANGE WITH ED SHEERAN’S EP ALBUM “+” LOGO AND SONG TITLES AS WELL AS WITH MY FAV PHOTOS OF HIM.

SO I HAD SOME REALLY AMAZING SEATS CLOSE TO THE STAGE SIDE VIEW LOWER LEVEL GOT TO SEE “VIP” AREAS LIKE THE DANCER’S SWITCHOUTS, WADROBES, THE VIP RED TOUR AS THE WALKED BY WITH TAYLOR SWIFT’S MOM, THE DJ AREA, WHEN THEY CLEANED HER AND HER BAND’S GUITARS, POLISHING THEM. PLUS I HAVE MY AMAZING CAMERA THAT MY MOM GOT ME FOR CHRISTMAS WHICH WAS MEANT FOR THIS CONCERT ANYWAYS BUT THAT I HAD USED TO PHOTOGRAPH IN OTHER CONCERTS LIKE “pink” AND “demi lovato”. SO BEFORE THE CONCERT STARTED I MET SOME REALLY AMAZING FANS AND MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS. THEN WHEN THE CONCERT STARTED IT STARTED A LITTLE BEFORE THE TIME IT WAS SUPPOSED TO, SO PROPS ON THAT. THIS OTHER UP AND COMING COUNTRY SINGER OPENED UP FOR ED SHEERAN HIS NAME WAS SOMETHING BRYCE… I KNOW IM SORRY IM DIDN’T CATCH THE WHOLE THING BUT HE WAS GOOD.

THEN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES ED SHEERAN CAME OUT AND I WAS LIKE DONE FOR LIFE. HE WAS JUST FLAWLESS. I HAD A BIG BRITISH FLAG I HAD BROUGHT WITH ME INSTEAD OF A POSTER AND I TOOK IT OUT AND I WAS LIKE WAVING IT PROUDLY SO HE COULD SEE IT. THE GREAT THING ABOUT ED SHEERAN IS HE DOESN’T NEED DANCERS HE DOESN’T NEED ANYTHING HIS VOICE AND TALENT IS CAPTIVATING ENOUGH. HE CAN PLAY THE GUITAR LIKE NO OTHER YOU CAN TELL HE IS ART, HE IS MUSIC, HE IS A LYRICAL GENIUS. IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OR LIKE ED SHEERAN YOU SERIOUSLY ARE MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING THAT IS GREAT. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ED IS THAT YOU CAN TELL THAT MUSIC IS HIS LIFE, PASSION, AND EVERYTHING THAT IS HIM. AS SOON AS HE STEPS ON THAT STAGE AND STARTS PLAYING HE POURS OUT HIS WHOLE HEART AND SOUL INTO EVERY SONG IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW LONG THE SONG IS. HE MAKES SURE THAT EVERYONE IN THE CROWD IS INVOLVE AND HIS ENERGY FILLS UP THE WHOLE ARENA. I SANG MY HEART OUT TO ALL OF HIS SONGS AS I TRIED TO TAKE AS MANY PHOTOS, AND VIDEOS OF HIM POSSIBLE. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND SAY WOW I WAS THERE AND RELIVE IT. BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WHEN IT WILL BE THE NEXT TIME I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HIM AGAIN IN CONCERT. AND HE MADE MY NIGHT EPIC REGARDLESS IF TAYLOR’S SHOW WOULD BE GOOD OR NOT. LATER WHEN HE ENDED HIS LAST SONG HE EXITED NEXT TO THE AREA I WAS SITTING AT AND WAVED BACK. 😀

HE OPENED UP SINGING “GIVE ME LOVE”, “KISS ME”, “DRUNK”, “LEGO HOUSE”, “U DON’T NEED ME, I DON’T NEED U” MIXED WITH HIS OWN COVER OF MACKLEMORE’S “THRIFTSTORE” AND ENDED WITH “A-TEAM”. WHICH WAS AMAZING BECAUSE HE HAD EVERYONE PULL OUT THEIR CELLPHONES AND WAVE THEM AND IT LOOKED LIKE GLITTERING ANGELS IT WAS EPIC THE WHOLE ARENA JUST FLAWLESS IN LIGHTS IT MADE THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE SONG JUST MORE AMAZING TO BE IN.

THEN LATER ON WITHIN A FEW MINUTES MORE I SAW THE DANCERS LINING UP AND TAKING THEYRE PLACES IN FULL COSTUMES AND I KNEW THAT THE SHOW WAS ABOUT TO START. IT WAS COOL BECAUSE BEFORE THAT SOME OTHER FANS AND I GOT TO SAY HI TO SOME OF THE DANCERS AND WAVE AT THEM. THEY STARTED DANCING TO “AMERICAN WOMAN” ALONG WITH US HAHA. SOME OF TAYLOR SWIFT’S DANCERS WERE DANCERS WHO WERE CONTESTANTS OR FINALISTS IN PAST SEASONS OF “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” AND I HAD RECOGNIZED A FEW. WHICH WAS SUPRISINGLY FUN.

REDDDDD

SO TAYLOR SWIFT’S SHOW STARTS AND THE “RED” SIGN STARTS FLASHING AND RISING UP. REVEALING THEN THAT SHE IS STANDING BEHIND A RED CURTAIN THAT IS KIND OF SHEER SO YOU COULD SEE HER SILHOUETTE AND STARTS TO SING HER OPENING NUMBER TO “STATE OF GRACE & HOLY GROUND” SHE CAME OUT AND HAD BLACK HIGH WAISTED LEATHER SHORTS AND WHITE LONG LACED SLEEVE TOP BLACK BOWLER HAT, RED LACE UP OXFORD FLATS WITH RED CRYTALS ON THEM, BLACK CATEYELINER MAKEUP AND IN HER SIGNATURE RED LIPS AND STRAIGHT HAIR WITH A LITTLE WAVES AT THE END, AND RED MICROPHONE IN HAND. AFTER HER SONG ENDED SHE STOOD THERE FOR ABOUT A LEGIT 15 MINUTES WAITING FOR THE CROWD TO APPLAUD AND CHEER AND SHE LOOKED AROUND THE ARENA. SHE THEN SANG “RED” WHICH WAS REALLY COOL CAUSE THE DANCERS USED RED SILK FABRIC AND FLAGS TO WAVE AROUND. SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFITS WITH A RED UNITARD WITH A RED SEQUIN OVERLAY SKIRT AND RED SILK GLOVES DID A 50’S VERSION JAZZ SOUND OF “YOU BELONG WITH ME”.

THEN SHE CHANGED THE OVERLAY SKIRT TO A LONG SILK ONE AND DID A VINTAGE INTRO VIDEO TO “THE LUCKY ONE” THAT REMINDED ME OF BRITNEY SPEARS VIDEO “LUCKY”. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHOREOGRAPHED DANCES AND THEMED SONG OF THE NIGHT.

THEN SHE CHANGED AGAIN HER SKIRT FOR A WHITE FLARE SKIRT AND SAT DOWN AND SANG “MEAN” AND “YOURE NOT SORRY” AND THEN MY FAVORITE SONG “STAY STAY STAY” WHICH LATER SHE MIXED THAT SONG AS SHE WENT UP THE STAGE STAIRS THAT LIFTED IN THE AIR TO AS SHE SANG THE LUMINEER’S “HEYHO”.

IMG_0595

SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFIT AGAIN AS THE PLAYED A SLIDESHOW OF VIDEO AND PHOTOS FROM HER AT AGE 1 ALL THE WAY TILL AGE … 22!!! WHICH INTRODUCED THE 22 SONG WHERE SHE CAME OUT IN A PREPPY OUTFIT VARSITY JACKET WITH THE LETTER “R” FOR RED, BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED LONG SLEEVE TOP, AND RED SKINNY JEANS. THIS WAS ANOTHER OF THE COOLEST SONGS SHE DID IT WAS FUN, ENERGETIC, YOUNG, AND THEN DANCERS TOOK HER FROM THE MAIN STAGE TO ANOTHER LITTLE STAGE FARTHER AWAY AS SHE HIGH FIVED THE FANS IN THE CROWD UNTIL SHE GOT THERE.

THEN OVER THERE ON THAT STAGE SHE SANG ANOTHER SONG AND THEN WITH ED SHEERAN SHE SANG THEIR DUO TO “EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED” WHICH I LITERALLY ADORE, AS THE PLATFORM CIRCLED SLOWLY SO EVERYONE COULD SEE THEM. THEN HE LEFT AND SHE SITTING DOWN SHE SANG “BEGIN AGAIN” AS THE PLATFORM RAISED IN THE AIR SO EVERYONE COULD SEE HER AND IT WAS PRETTY COOL. THEN SHE SANG ANOTHER OLD SONG OF HERS.

IMG_0608

THEN WHILE SHE CHANGED FOR HER NEXT NUMBER A VIOLING GIRL CAME OUT AND PLAYED INTRUMENTALLY THE INTRO FOR “TROUBLE” WHICH TAYLOR CAME OUT DRESSED IN A WHITE UGLY VINTAGE GOWN THAT LOOK LIKE IT WAS MADE FROM PLEATED DRAPES (:) SORRY). THE NUMBER WAS PRETTY MUCH LIKE BRITAIN AWARDS PERFORMANCE CHANDELIERS, MASQUERADE DANCERS, AND THEN THEY STRIP HER FROM THAT UGLY COSTUME AND SHE IS LEFT WITH A LACED BLACK HIGH WAISTED PANTS AND COOL TOP. AFTER THAT SHE SANG “ALMOST DO” IN HER RED PIANO WHICH SHE GOT A LITTLE CHOKED UP ON… (I PERSONALLY THINK THIS WAS THAT TAYLOR LAUTNER BASED SONG…LOL 😉 ) THEN SHE CHANGED TO A WHITE DRESSED MUCH PRETTIER AND JUMPED OUT OF A MUSICAL BOX AND ITS NUTCRACKER STYLE DANCERS AND SANG “LOVESTORY”.

THE SHE CHANGED AGAIN INTO BLACK TOP WHITE SKIRT AND SANG “TREACHEROUS” LIKE SHE WAS A GYMNAST AND SHE WAS IN A LOVE CLIFFHANGER BEING HUNTED BY EVIL CLOWNS AND RABBITS (YEAH..). THEN SHE CHANGED ONE LAST TIME INTO A RINGLEADER WITH A TOP HAT AND CANE IN HAND AND DID HER BIG FINALE SONG “WE ARE NEVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER” WHICH WAS AWESOME IT WAS A CIRCUS THEMED SHE THEN CIRCLED 360 DEGREE IN A STAGE PLATFORM AND THEN CONFETTI FLEW OUT AND AROUND THE WHOLE ARENA.. AND I PICKED UP AND SAVED SOME FOR SCRAPBOOKING SAKE, AND YEAH IT WAS FUN!!
