#CinemaSunday: Blair Witch (2016)

Intro

FALL IS HERE! ALL OF THE HORROR! ALL OF THE TIME! I went with a new film this week to switch it up. I typically avoid films still in theaters for my reviews but I was surprised by this one. Let’s check out Blair Witch for an all new generation of horror fans, and the OGs too.

 

SINopsis

GENRE: Horror/Found Footage

Yes this is a remake, but hear me out okay.

After video footage of his sister who went missing when he was just 4 years old, James and his friends head out to the forest to find out what happened. Spooky forest (spoopy even!), found footage, you get the deal.

 

Review

Much like the Evil Dead remake, I really enjoyed the film. A lot of jump scares, but that is to be expected from the genre. I found the characters to be a little less than exciting but there story arc stayed true to original film. There were a few good laughs ifyou havea dark sense of humor as well.

Summer Sixteen: P.Muna x Nikki Sin Verse Contest Winner

Typically bloggers get involved with contests that force you to reblog, repost, follow, and share things but I always like to do things differently. Last month I teamed up with P.Muna, NY artist/rapper and MTV star to launch his 16 bar contest. Rappers had to drop 16 bars on Muna’s track ‘Demolition‘. Up for grabs was:

A recording session with P.Muna in NYC
A video & photo shoot with P.Muna
P.Muna x Nikki Sin swag designed by me

So who demolished the track? Albany man Mike Mitch y’all! The artist is the proud winner of all those dope prizes, and the very first contest on my site! I can’t WAIT to see what these two create for this track but I am certain it will be nothing short of dope.

Give your speakers some love with his winning submission: here

Stayed tuned every week for new posts, updates, and I promise there WILL be more contests soon😉

#FitnessFriday: Breakfast Stuffed Green Peppers

Healthy breakfasts can really bring forward you creativity in the morning, or at 2pm for brunch (brunch is still cool yea?). Stuffed peppers aren’t just reserved for dinner n my opinion.

Image result for green pepper stuffed with egg whites
What You Need:

2 Green Peppers
Egg Whites
Goat Cheese
Tomatoes
Kale
Salt & Pepper

(whatever veggies you desire!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; Cut the top off the pepper(s), carve out the inside of the peppers (like a pumpkin but not really) then place the remaining ingredients inside of the pepper. Bake peppers for 8-10 minutes. Top with salt, pepper, and basil if you’re feeling fancy.

 

#TBT: The Man, The Legend. Justin Bobby.

Let’s take it back to The Hills; if you follow me on Twitter you know I keep tf up wth my boy Spencer Pratt but I wanted to take this TBT post to appreciate another man of the MTV hit reality series: JUSTIN BOBBY Y’ALL.

Ok, Audrina has moved waaaaay on by now but during her time on the reality series she had one of the show’s best OTPs with JB.

While it may not be his real name Justin Bobby was the show’s resident bad boy (with great hair.) who swept Audrina off her feet, and had her crying once per episode.

JB is now living a reality TV free life as a hairstylist, but will remain in MTV history and I assume MCM for Jessi Cruikshank?

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with Model & Social Media Star Tana Lea

From her unapologetic stoner posts, to her head to to tatted 10/10 bod this week’s #TMITuesday is  the embodiment of the fire emoji.I sat down to ask model Tana Lea about her social media, MTV star boyfriend, and of course chat about her budding modelling career.

tmibanner

1. You’re a big social media fan, what is your favourite app to use to connect with fans?

I’m an Insta hoe! Instagram for sure, I’m just loyal to them in general….they are the only social media app that hasn’t banned me at some point. (Knock on wood).

2. What would you say is your “theme song”?

 

3. Ultimately what is your modelling goal?

 

I’m not really sure, I’d love to get some magazine covers or be featured! I’ve yet to be printed anywhere, which now this totally tests my credibility for the next statement but…..I’d like to get more into the mentoring side of being an Insta-hoe. What chick doesn’t want to be Instagram famous these days? Image result for thetanalea instagramNot to toot my own horn but I literally moved from the middle of no where, pulled my tits out a few times on Snapchat and started slaying my social media. I’d love to show other girls how to be confident or even fake confident to get what you want and do everything for you.

 

4. You make your love for weed no secret, what are your views regarding the ongoing battles to legalize marijuana in the remaining states/Canada?

Absolutely loyal to my friend Mary Jane. As someone who suffers from PTSD, and depression I can tell you marijuana has gotten me out of some dark places. I think that if regulated and of course taxed by the government the chronic could be a great thing! 

image3.JPG


5. You and your boyfriend Tyler Pratt of MTV’s Are You The One are adorable on Instagram/Twitter; How did the two of you meet? Had you seen him on the show prior to meeting him?
 

Awe thanks! I like to think we are cute he thinks it’s annoying when I’m constantly snapping in his face but when he watches it later ends up dying because it’s straight comedy. We actually met via tinder, well kinda. I was in la one weekend before I actually moved there and he saw me on tinder and of course my handles and plugs are all in my bio. Well I don’t match with him so he slides in my Insta dm’s. Lol I still have the screenshot of the message! 💕 after a few days of texting we finally hung out. Lol my best friend #innerblackman Syrus Yarbrough of Real World Boston actually was showing me the city and mr Tyler Pratt decided to invite me over. I still remember the song we were singing in the car. image2.JPGThat damn nope song. Lol anyways Sy dropped me off at Tylers. I showed up with a bag of snacks from 7-11 (burritos, Funyuns, some type of sour candy and chocolate). Tyler and I watched Brave Heart and Gladiator and talked about how we weren’t going to have sex bc we were in love and then waited till the next morning  tmi I know but it’s funny bc I’m high! (its also TMITuesday so its okay!)

 

Lol no but another castmate from season 2 had already talked to me lol and picked me up the same way. So one of the first things I asked Tyler was if they all shared girls. Lol I honestly don’t like a lot of people from those shows. Not all of them but I will say there are some messy ones out there that try to get involved in people’s real life’s outside of MTV. Those broads, ugh. Anyways. So no I had never seen Tyler’s show.

 

6. Since today is #TMITuesday is there something you can tell the readers about you that they may not already know?

 

Lol I think the previous was lol well anyways. I’m from a tiny town population 3,881 when I moved away. I showed goats in 4-h, I ran for fair queen, I’m naturally blonde, I was a flight attendant for a day, I worked for the attorney general of Texas child support division, Texas a&m university biomedical engineering, Texas department of criminal justice Hamilton unit, umm lol sugar baby, Instagram model, Snapchat famous, Titty famous lol yeah that’s about all I got. I drink 3 gallons of whole milk a week.

 

7.  What can we find on your recently watched section of your Netflix account?

One tree hill. I get revisited by my childhood when I’m baked, I’m sure it has some correlation with my issues idk anyways. We’ve rewatched Big Love, Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill, just started game of thrones, stranger things, that other show with coach Taylor from Friday night lights, lol all since we have been dating. Our perfect night is Apple TV, junk food, weed and each other of course! 

 

8. Okay back on to social media, what is your go-to Snapchat filter?

I have a LuMee case on my phone like Beyoncé so I just go with the Regular basic first filter. No dog ears or butterfly d*ck magnets. Image result for snapchat filter GIF

 

9. Describe your ideal photoshoot?

Some sort of fast food endorsement. Sahhhhhh I’ll eat yo cheeseburgers and wash a car in some shorts for some free food. #noshame

 

10. Whats next for you?

Marriage, baby. No I’m kidding, idk, Tyler and I really want our own reality show. We are filming with a local company for a little pilot soon so hopefully someone with the powers that be see us and think we are as cool as we do and wanna pay us to entertain. Hell hosting things for MTV. I personally think MTV should bring back the show fear! Fu*k I nearly sh*t my pants every episode. Lol back to the question. Yeah this year we have just really been focusing on helping each other grow in our social media. Ultimately we would like to be able to just live off of that. YouTube vlogs, cool sh*t. I mean I’m not going to go on and on and sound like a c*nt because we are so very grateful at where we are. Getting recognized is cool but getting recognized as a couple because people like our vibes is the coolest. Makes my heart happy. So yeah just working on making the world love us so we can watch more Netflix and smoke more weed!

I foresee big things for Tana & Tyler, and y’all can expect me to make my way onto their show😉

#ThrowbackThursday: Video Of The Week

This week’s pick is a song that  have been singing loudly with my family (not well by any means) for as long as I can remember. In fact, last week my dad and  blared this song as we drove down Lakeshore Blvd.

Annie Lennox is an incredible talent, and this song will forever stay in my heart.

A Secret They Can’t Keep: Pretty Little Liars To End After 7 Seasons

Since the pilot was aired back 2010, teen drama-mystery ‘Pretty Little Liars’ has had all of us afraid of A, wondering who A is, thinking we know who it is and then going back to the drawing board of A.

Image result for pretty little liars
Today, producers and execs of the show announced that season 7 would be the final season of the show (which was always the plan btw).

Rumors of a wedding in season 7 are making PLL fan go nuts with guesses (COME ONNNNN ARIA AND EZRA!!!), and we are all really hoping for any and all loose ends to be tied up. Sadly this is not the only hit show who announced it’s final season this Summer; MTV hit series Teen Wolf will be ending this next season (I am still too sad to really talk about it tbh).

Fans are both relieved, and horrified regarding the huge PLL announcement via Twitter today:

I’m certain this is not the last we will see of the stars of the show either, here are my predictions:

Ashley Benson aka Hannah : Will continue her film career and veer away from television

Lucy Hale aka Aria: Will pursue her country music career further

Troian Bellasario aka Spencer: I’m hoping for more music from her, but she has been working on several films and some directing

Shay Mitchell aka Emily: Blogging and fashion

Whether or not you stayed true as a fan and watch past season 4, or not I suspect you will tune in for the final season.

Watch: Ariana Grande Ft Nicki Minaj ‘Side To Side’

Last night was the 2016 MTV VMAs and it was a pop lover’s dream! With an incredible performance from VMA/pop music queen Britney Spears (featuring G Eazy), the iconic Rihanna,  and of course the steamy slayage from Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The two dropped the video for the latest track from them exclusively on www.guess.com within the last day in partnership with Vevo.

Additionally, Ari and rumored boyfriend (ok but we all know its an OTP)  rapper Mac Miller won for cutest couple at the awards in my eyes. The two first inspired dating rumours upon the release of their single together ‘The Way’ but Grande was dating Youtuber Jai Brooks at the time, and then of course rapper Big Sean, and possible that donut she licked. Joan Grande seems to have approved as she was sat next to Miller,all we need now is Nonna’s approval. Image result for ariana grande side  to side

As for the perfomance, this is not the first smash the musical mavens have been in cohorts with, Grande and Minaj have also done “Bang, Bang” and “Get On Your Knees” together.

Catch up with last night’ performance, and be sure to tweet me with your opinions on the new video

 

#MusicMonday: A Simpler Time For Pop Punk

In all of my #TMITuesday interviews I ask if there is anything fans may not know about the interviewee, well one of my responses if I were ever asked would be my sort of secret love for pop punk. The early 2000’s were a great time for the genre, so I wanted to take it back a decade or so to some good ‘ol Canadian pop punk, the loved and mostly hated Simple Plan.

#CinemaSunday: The Neon Demon (2016)

Intro

WINTER IS COMING.

But so is Fall, which in comparison is better in all aspects.

1. SWEATER WEATHER
2. No guilty feeling for staying in on your day off thinking you wasted the sunny day indoors
3. It means horror Christmas aka Halloween is approaching.

This means a plethora of content for #CinemaSunday and lots of new titles on Kaley’s Netflix account (thanks babe xo). This week’s pick is delving into a more visual horror, and a lot more commercial than my typical choices which tend to fall into the B-movie category. So let’s dive into “The Neon Demon“:

SINopsis

GENRE: Horror/Thriller

Jesse played by Elle Fanning (Super 8), a determined 16 year old model moves to L.A to pursue her career. With no real place to call home, Jesse finds a terrible motel in Pasadena where she befriends the incredibly creepy manager played by Keanu Reeves (no,seriously.)
Anyways, this also where Jesse meets makeup artist Ruby played by Jena Malone (The Hunger Games, Saved) who thrusts the young model into the fashion industry alongside fellow models Sarah, and Gigi.
Eventually our lovely lead Jesse is discovered by a modelling agent played by my girl Christina Hendricks, and finds herself doing a shoot with a famed photographer, which doesn’t sit well with Sarah and Gigi.

Without giving anything away but providing pivotal plot details there are consequences for Jesse for her success, and the revenge is not delivered in a friendly way via the model foes.

FUN FACT: Elle Fanning is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning.

Review

This film is visually stunning, the story line itself is a bit much for the length of the film but it was worth it.

#MusicMonday: Video Of The Week

I’m always a supporter of Canadian content (so long as it is good that is), this week’s video of the week comes from 24 year of Canadian Bri Aunalee.  The artist’s latest video for ‘HOTPANTS’ gives me vibes of pink dreams, the 60’s, and a faint hint of Cute Whore/Lana Del Rey

#CinemaSunday: Contracted (2013)

. While she believes she contracted an STI she instead picked up something far, far worse…Intro

I told y’all I was back! This week’s pick gets all sorts of strange, and well..detailed. 2013 was a pretty solid year for disturbing horror films and this week’s pick is no different with ‘Contracted‘.

Sinopsis

GENRE: Horror/Thriller/STI Warning video?

No one wants to make that call, the “I may have given you an STI” call; Well for Samantha making that call would be the least of her worries. While she believes she has contracted a sexually transmitted disease it is actually something much worse.

FUN FACT: The film spawned a 2015 sequel

Review

I feel like  the film depended a lot of its scenes of sexual nature and not enough on gore like it could have. I got a ‘Teeth‘ vibe from it?

Rating

5.5 STIs out of 10 (please see a doctor if you have 5-10 STis)

Who should watch this?

Virgins
Miley Cyrus
You
Maybe my cousin Lisa?

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions With MTV’s AYTO 4 Star/Model-Blogger Kaylen Zahara

HOLY SH*T LAST NIGHT’S FINALE OF ARE YOU THE ONE WAS INSANE ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I thought the blackout was crazy but dang. Well you haven’t seen the last of this cast this week’s interview is with my squad goal babe Kaylen Zahara who went through some rough Gio related drama this season. I sat down to talk to Zahara about Gio (former #TMITuesday feature), the cast, her blog, and more in this all new #TMITuesday!

tmibanner

1. How has your life changed since the show has aired? Are you better at dating now? 

     Being on Are You The One has changed my life for the better. I have gained a major platform which has enhanced my modeling career and even drawn major attention to my blog. When it comes to dating, I have learned to be way more cautious than I have ever been with men. I have to be careful with trusting too soon, and not peeping out all angles of a guy. I am currently attracting better candidates and crushing majorly hard on a lucky someone. 

2. Ok Gio, he was instantly drawn to you. and the feeling seemed mutual; What do you think went wrong? Do you think he was true to his feelings throughout filming? What terms are you two on now?

  G and I had an immediate chemistry coming into the house. The down fall of our “relationship” was due to his inability to admit that he was not the man he tried to be for me the initial weeks of things going well. He tried to be something he wasn’t and instead of accepting his failure, he blamed me for not being enough for him, when in reality I had everything he needed then and now for him to better himself.  Not too mention he wanted to go after someone else after leading me on. Just a case of common immaturity in a male. I have moved far along from our tv relationship and so G is a friend that I continue to mentor. The past is the past.

 

3. Speaking of terms, do you keep in touch with anyone from the cast?

I keep in touch with majority of the cast. Despite and past issues, we all made television together and lived together in Maui, HI for two months. We can’t act as if that doesn’t count for something.

4. Like myself you are also a blogger; What is your favourite part about uploading your posts, and videos?

  For me blogging is a way for me to be of service to others in this world. My blog is my place to share what is going on internally. It’s my spirtual release to the world. I find that every post brings me complete joy and satisfaction. I am living out my purpose on this planet but sharing a new state of mind to those who don’t have the same perception or resources as I do.


5. What would you say is your ‘theme song’?

  Right now my anthem is “Needed Me” by Rihanna & “Better” by Meghan Trainor 

 

6. As well as being a blogger, and reality star you are a model too; Can you describe your ideal photo shoot?

  My ideal photo shoot is working with Brendan Forbes, in Bora Bora, for Vogue magazine for a Chanel ad campaign.

7. Since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the readers something about you that they may not already know?

  One thing that most people don’t know off the bat is that I sing. I’ve got a passion for signing and hopefully in the near future you will be hearing some tracks from me ;) 

 

8. Do you feel that yourself and the cast were accurately portrayed on the show?

I do feel that everyone was portrayed truthfully on the show. It’s television so of course you have to edit. So some things aren’t played in the correct order, however what was filmed was said and done by us as a cast. I don’t think any of us were portrayed as something we weren’t then. Editing can’t make you say or do something you didn’t say or do.  Even when the scene isn’t used when it occurred it still portrays your personality or characteristics of yourself at that time. 

9. Who do you think is your ‘celebrity match’?

I think my celebrity match is Rihanna. We just need to be some island gals together even though I’m from “farrin” (Meaning, I am Jamaican yet from the states.)

10. Whats next for you Kaylen?

The grind never stops for me. I am currently working on building my brand, investing in major business ventures, and also working on my self help book. You will be seeing more of me back on your tv screens and many other forms of media.

Keep up with Kaylen on Twitter & Instagram, and stay tuned for new posts on my site every week! And you can catch up on the crazy season 4 on MTV.com

Ok so I may have binge watched “Don’t Trust The B in Apartment 23” last weekend and that may have affected this week’s pick…

#CinemaSunday: Honeymoon (2014)

Intro

“After the ceremony, comes the ritual”

It’s been months without a Cinema Sunday post, I was pretty focused on my studies, and fell off my usual 1-3 movies per day schedule. But a loyal friend, and avid reader of the segment asked me to bring it back SO I DID. In addition, the Fall is rolling around and that is when when horror takes it’s rightful place in cinema and  on screens. My reviews are back, and gorier than EVER. This week’s pick is certainly NSFW and I’m all over it, check out 2014’s ‘Honeymoon‘.

 SINopsis

GENRE: Horror/Thriller/Mystery

Honeymoons are meant to be romantic right? Well whats more romantic than a cottage in the forest where no one can hear you scream and there’s no cell reception? For newlyweds Paul and Bea nothing is more romantic than that.  But this is a horror so it’s not all peachy for long, sometime in the night Paul discovers that his new wife Bea (who he calls his honeybee which is both cute and infuriating) is no where to be found within the cottage. BUT OF COURSE! He finds her in the spooky forest, because all forests are either spooky or magical. Bea’s stint in the forest does something to her, and she is no longer the honeybee she once was. There’s some creepy scenes of her being what I thought was possessed for half the film, gruesome sex scenes and lots of ominous music.

FUN FACT: Star Rose Leslie was on Game Of Thrones from 2012 to 201

Review

I was hoping to see a bit more torture than what was presented which was none as the film was suggested to me for being “incredibly disturbing” . Siigggghhhhhhh.

Rating

8 out of 10 gruesome sex scenes

Who should watch this? 

Not your younger siblings
you
my future husband

Stay tuned Tuesday for an all new #TMITuesday with AYTO star Kaylen Zahara!

One of the biggest events in the six has passed and now the Summer almost feels over. Caribana brings together Toronto and visitors to rejoice in celebration of the love for Soca, Calypso and Steeplan music. With a Carnival Parade, gorgeous costumes and good vibes the event never fails to bring communities together. If you’re sad that it has come and gone, here is some Popcaan to help remedy that.

This week’s WCW got her fame as a vlogger, and is not shy when voicing her opinion, or just being silly.

Youtube, Canadian, new author, and all around super woman Lilly Singh, I adore you.
