#WCW

Why can’t my woman crush Wednesday be a fictional character? A true MILF.

My girl Dr.Bev Crusher is this week’s WCW, she’s uhhh out of this world😉

#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?

 

#WCW

This week’s WCW is in my top 10 , lets be BFFs Krysten Ritter.

#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

 

#MCM

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…

James Van Der Beek forever plz.

#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!

milk (soy almond, or regular)
Greek yogurt
honey
ice cubes

#MusicMonday: Post Caribana Decompression

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.

#WCW

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.

#MusicMonday: MTV’s Are You The One Stars

It is not uncommon for cast members of reality shows to take advantage of their newly found fame  to launch careers based on their talents (you would do the same tbh). MTV’s Are You The One is all about finding love, and making money but aside from being terrible at dating, the show’s casts often also have musical talents in common. Check out some of the musical stylings of AYTO:

Season 4: Tori Deal

Season 3: Rashida Zakiya Beach

Season 4: Proper Muna

Season 4: Asaf Goren

Lizzie McGuire’s BFFs: Where Are They Now?

We were all apart of Lizzie McGuire’s squad, or so we like to believe in our heads. But where are Miranda and Gordo now? Well according to MoviePilot.com here is what the two are up to:

Miranda Sanchez aka LaLaine Vegara

Then: She rocked the violin, and was always there for our girl Lizzie.

Now: Quirky Lalaine is now pursuing a music career (not as a violin player). She played bass guitar in the band Vanity Theft until 2011, but is now working on solo projects.

Adam Lamberg aka David “Gordo” Gordon

Then: He longed for Lizzie but always just wanted her to be happy.

Now: Adam hung up his acting shoes over eight years ago to focus on his studies. He majored in geography at University of California, Berkeley, works as a development associate at the Irish Arts Center in New York City and is currently completing a master’s degree in Public Administration.

#BeautyBit: Top 3 Alternatives To Skin Cream

It can be quite difficult to find a lotion/cream that is light enough to not clog pores, wear underneath make-up, and not become greasy over time. But instead of avoiding it (which you should not, as maintaining a skincare routine is VERY important for women AND men!). I’ve compiled a list of a few alternatives to greasy, heavy lotion that can be used as a day or night cream:

1. Coconut Oil

This household item is a staple in most beauty routines now. It is great for hair, teeth, and skin!

$- 8-15 dollars a jar

2. Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil contain vitamin E, and provides more moisture than coconut oil!

$- 12-15 dollars

3. Biotherm Aquasource Gel

I’m pretty obsessed with this product tbh, the hydration it provides is insane.

$- 50 dollars

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with MTV’s AYTO 4 Star Giovanni Rivera

With a perfect match within the first few episodes already, this AYTO cast is not playing games (well some of them seem to be…) when it comes to finding their matches and getting that GUAP. This week I sat down to ask Gio some question about the show, his relationship with Kaylen, find out that he may or may not be a giant nerd and more in this all new #TMITuesday interview.

tmibanner

1. What initially attracted you to Kaylen?

I was initially attracted to Kaylen because we had a lot of things in common and in a lot of ways I felt she was the female version of me. And of course she’s gorgeous.

 2. Do you watch any other reality TV shows?

I grew up watching MTV. Real World, the challenge, but I don’t watch too much reality TV nowadays. I’m more of a cartoons and movie kind of guy.

3. Which fellow cast member do you feel you created a long lasting friendship with? Who was your perfect BFF match?

Asaf was definitely my best friend in the house, we are still friends and I just think he’s an amazing person with great energy a big heart. He was the only person who maintained a positive mindset throughout all the bullshit in the house.

4. Speaking of, do you keep in touch with any of the cast still?

Majority of the cast I do not keep in touch with, and I have no desire to, as people watch the rest of the season they’ll see why. But I’m definitely still in contact with Asaf, Prosper and a few others.

5. Since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the readers somethings about you that they may not learn from the show?

One thing you will not learn about me on the show is that I’m a big-time nerd. I love video games, movies, music, cartoons. I kind of have a double life where half of the day I’m out being an athlete and the other half I’m in the studio or gaming.

 6. How has your life changed this the show aired?

Since the show aired I’m definitely getting a lot of exposure which is awesome. A lot of people are showing love, A lot of people are supporting me. At the same time there’s a lot of haters a lot of scrutiny but that comes with the territory. I don’t really care about the fame or the limelight I didn’t go on the show for that. Being on Are You The One wasn’t a stepping stone for me, it wasn’t a career move so even if I didn’t have the followers or the attention I’d still be fine.

7. Do you believe in love at first sight?

I do believe in love at first sight. It’s definitely more of a feeling. I believe that natural attraction is pure attraction and going with the flow is the best way to go about things.

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

My theme song has to be Lucky Me by Chris Brown after you see what I went through in the house it’ll make sense.

 9. How did the house change when the first perfect match was confirmed?

When we got our first perfect match it was a great feeling it gave some people in the house hope that needed it. It gave some people motivation that needed it.  it was definitely a step in the right direction.

 10. Whats next for you?

What’s next for me? I am working on music that corresponds with the show. I’m in the gym everyday. and I’m just focus on being a better person. You know the end goal for me, short-term and long-term is happiness and, not only being happy but maintaining that happiness.

I’m rooting for you Gio, and y’all can root for Gio + the rest of the AYTO4 cast Monday nights on MTV at 10pm, and keep up with Gio on Twitter!

Stay tuned for all new posts every week on the site too!

#BeautyBit: Beauty On A Budget, Primer At a Prime Price

Any make-up junkie knows that it is not a cheap habit by any means but there are ways around spending $50+ on an item you will likely be using daily as part of your make-up and skincare routine. Growing up primer was not an item I used or even thought about buying although neither was concealer or setting spray but we all learn our lessons I was turned onto the product by a make-up artist friend of mine and was impressed by the benefits of it so much that it is not an integral part of my routine. So what are these benefits I speak of? Well here are a few:

-Softens skin
-Seal pores
-Make-up stays on longer
-Some contains anti-aging properties
-Can be used on any skin type or tone
-Easy application

Primer is applied after lotion prior to any make-up i.e concealer, foundation, CC/BB cream etc) and dries within a minute. But like any product there are some pretty pricey ones, and like any product there are alternatives within a budget for the products. Here are my top 3 budget friendly primers:

3. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water 1.0 oz – Under $20

Smashbox is great because its mostly affordable and available at Sephora and some drugstores select Shopper’s Drug Mart  Beauty Boutique locations). This particular primer is pretty great for photo shoots (on camera look) but with how water based it is, its not my favourite.

2. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Primer Base – Under $15

I was a big fan of this product for a while unfortunately I didn’t like the shape of the tube so I opted for the #1 on this list. The product itself is great,, it mattifys your skin and gives it a smooth look.  It is also available in drugstores worldwide (i.e Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, Walgreens, and Superdrug)

1.  Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer – Under $10

This is currently what is in my kit, and my favourite of the on budget products. It is super affordable light weight, and hasn’t irritated my skin whatsoever. You can grab it at any drugstore and with its low price it isn’t a huge commitment!

For more of my personal product favourites follow me on Snapchat: SikkiNin where I often showcase my favs and do short tutorials of my routine!

#FitnessFriday: Cheat Clean GrassHopper Recipe

#WCW

Former TV vampire, cast member of A SHOW THAT NEEDS TO BE PUT BACK ON THE AIR Finding Carter, upcoming exotic dancer (in a  film),  and this week’s #WCW.

Mega babe/Canadian Vanessa Morgan is in the middle of filming a new project where she plays an exotic dancer.

MTV’s Scream: The Drinking Game

This season of Scream is darker than the last (BROOKE I SEE YOU GIRL! YAAASSSS.), and it is oh so good. Like any horror piece show, or film there are patterns which I’m certain our boy Noah has noticed. So what can we do with these patterns? Well we firstly can yell at the screen “DON’T GO IN THERE EMMA!” but, we can also play drinking games because reasons that’s why. Well a new episode hits MTV tonight, and Netfix later this week so I thought I’d come up with one.

If you aren’t big on alcohol (which is totally cool too btw), you can play along by drinking whatever you so wish to! For each sighting take the associated amount of drinks (sips, gulps, etc). Up your Scream screening game, with a game. Although, if you intend to binge watch the series on Netflix, substitute any alcohol with water with alternating episodes. #GetLitStayHydrated.

Rules:

If you feel sick, stop playing. Have fun.  Do not answer unknown calls.

Ready?

Emma looks worried: Take one drink


Brooke looks flawless: Take one drink and cheers to the screen for her slayage (no pun intended).


Noah makes a break in the case: Take one drink


Someone screams: Take a drink

Someone gets a creepy text: Take one drink


Someone gets some action: Take one drink for every person involved.

A scene contains blood: Finish your drink


New guy Stavo looks sexy: Take one drink (and yes it is because you are thirsty like me.)


The killer appears: Take 2 drinks, and if you are on the show…RUN.

 

Tweet me when you have to take a drink, and drink responsibly. #TurntTuesday

#MusicMonday: M.I.L.F $

Don’t cry over spilled milk especially when the milk is all over some of Hollywood’s hottest moms. Last weekend Fergie dropped a brand new track, and video that sure has people talking. The former Black Eyed Peas front lady invited fellow celeb moms such as Chrissy Teigen, and Kim Kardashian to get in on some milky action for her latest song titled:
M.I.L.F $.

Of course the video couldn’t come without some controversy, as fans, haters, and critics are claiming heavy photoshopping on Kim Kardashian’s waist for the video. Not surprisingly Kim’s husband Kanye West is receiving far more backlash for his latest video for Famous (viewable on on Tidal).

Regardless of criticism, the song is hella catchy check it out here:

#ThrowbackThursday: Song Of The Week

Before we get into the song let us note these facts about it:

1. The song plays up to 6 times a week at my work/at home work

2. The song is  a decade old

3. Paris Hilton continues to work in the music industry

4. The video is still kind of, sort of #goals.

#BeautyBit: Celebrity Bangs

Most women learn early on if bangs are for them, such as myself where I tend to look like Hannah Montana and it is NOT the best of either worlds.

But a lot of celebrities are taking the fringey plunge and going for it. Some are risk-taking with the actual cut where some are rocking some clip-ons.

I may not be able to rock them but here are some celebrities who are, and are doing it well.

Kylie Jenner (photo via youbeauty.com)

The mini style icon is always experimenting with new hair (none of it ever being really hers) and has been sporting bangs at many fashion events this year.

                                             Zendaya (photo via seventeen.com)

Recording artist and Disney Channel star Zendaya is a favourite on the best-dressed list, and is a big fan of different hairstyles.

                                               Taylor Swift (photo via Vogue)

T Sweezy has been really into this messy look lately and tbh I foresee her rocking a pixie cut real soon and claiming it as a free feeling or whatever.

                                    Selena Gomez (photo via Cosmopolitan.com)

The superstar who is currently on her Revival tour ‘revived’ her Pantene famous hair with a little edge.

                                     Shay Mitchell (photo via Teen Vogue)

The Pretty Little Liars star had some fun with a wig and Snapchat, but is currently still rocking her signature long black locks, sans bangs.

                                          Emma Stone (photo via Pintrest)

Stone really suits bangs imo, whether it be with her signature red hair, or her new blonde look.

                                         Troian Bellisario (photo via Pintrest)

Apparently the cast of Pretty Little Liars are fan of bangs, and so are the stylists for the hit drama. Belliario’s character Spencer has been sporting bangs for the newest seasons. Meanwhile the artist, and actress continues to go without bangs in her real life.

The key is to be confident in your look, be bold, and love yourself! Tweet me at @thenikkisinMTV and let me know what your experience with bangs is!

I’m certain I’ll get attacked for using this phrase, but Nicole Ritchie is my spirit animal y’all.

DIY Of The Day: Lucky Charms Cookies

I’m going to put it out there: unless I’m making tacos my DIY skills are garbage. Pintrest fail SubReddit worthy but luckily there are people in the world who are far better at crafts, baking, and cooking than I am.
Vlogger Naomi Elle dropped this video yesterday to make your own Lucky  Charms cookies (Kylie Jenner will adore this) and I can’t wait to ask a friend to make them. (well I’m not going to do it….)

#BeautyBit: Powdered Sunscreen, A Make-up Lover’s Dream

Summer can be tricky for make up lovers who know that sunscreen needs to be applied every two hours (its true!). It can be hard on your face to constantly reapply, especially on top of your make up, but its important to wear it to avoid aging, and skin cancer. We have all ignored sun safety at least once in our adult lives, but theres now a solution (and SKIN CARE IS COOL OK?)

Luckily for all of us, Andrea Wetsel teamed up with MUA, skin cancer survivor, and skin safety savior Susan Posnick to create Brush On Block, a full-coverage, mineral-based and all-natural sunscreen, says People Magazine!

Brush On Block

The mineral sunscreen fits in your purse, murse,or even diaper bags! With an easy and non-oily application the all natural product is great for make up lovers as it can go right over your foundation, and kids too (no fuss, or less fuss at least). You can grab yours here at  anthropologie.com for around $32.

#ThrowbackThursday: B4-4

At one point in 1999 Canada decided it needed to get in on the boy band craze (yes, there were boy bands prior to One Direction). So Toronto twins Ryan and Dan Kowarsky teamed up with friend Ohad Einbinder to become  b4-4 who later on became Before Four. The trio released the Hit List chart topper ‘Get Down‘ and had all us 90’s kids singing hella inappropriate lyrics.

 

Martha Stewart Throws Twitter Shade at Kardashian BFF Jonathan Cheban?!

The craft and food queen took to Twitter to ask the Daily Mail a very important question:

Is Jonathon Cheban as popular as he claims?

The PR mogul, best known as the possible leak, and BFF to selfie queen Kim Kardashian-West apparently mentioned how popular he was to Stewart earlier today.

The whole tweet was a joke however, as  the two were seen at dinner together later that evening #ItsAGoodThing

#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.
