Vegas Bound: Halloween Week 2019


I love every reason to let my inner spook out, so the ENTIRE month of October is an all-out celebration for me! If you're here, you must be getting ready to spend your Halloween in Las Vegas and I could NOT be more excited for you. Whether you are a Las Vegas Local, or here for the weekend, Las Vegas is one of the most amazing places in the world for entertainment, and to take a nice relaxing (or turnt) vacation. As much as Vegas has the reputation to be an Adults only trip, we have tons of spooktacular events for the whole family to enjoy.

If you are heading to Las Vegas to celebrate Halloween, check out the hotel rooms available from my team. We can get rates up to 30% lower than nationally advertised rates all year round, even on national holidays. And when you book with me, you get the option of having me personally help you plan out your vacation specifics and help to manage any last-minute emergencies.

A few tips if you are coming through for the costume contests. Vegas does not come to play, we have world-class SFX artists in town that pull out all the stops! If you are coming to show off your craft don't hold anything back because I guarantee you no one here will! If you are planning on a nightclub costume contest, most casinos have very strict requirements on what you can wear walking through like ABSOLUTELY no nudity or implied nudity (like pasties and thongs), no weapons (not even obviously fake ones), no full face paint or masks, and no skates to name a few. If you have a costume that is a little risky, wear a coat over, lots of the clubs have a coat check for a fee (I know for sure XS, Chateau, and Light have coat checks).

Check out my video on spending Halloween in Las Vegas:

Nikki's Picks:

Here are my TOP Halloween adventures you have to see to believe for 2019:
  • ROCK OF HORROR: Fremont Street Experience October 31st
    With live entertainment from bands to a WICKED show with aerial acts, and a cash costume contest this is a FREE event that you can not miss and you will need to see in person to believe! See below or the link for details.
  • Cardi B @ Kaos October 31st
    See Cardi under the Demon Dome Halloween night! Kaos is Las Vegas' newest superclub at the renovated Palms. Cardi always puts on a performance that will keep you on your feet! Prices for this keep climbing so lock these in ASAP.
  • HallOVeen @ the Magical Forest @ Opportunity Village
    This is a whole family type of event, like a super fun Halloween Carnival with trick-or-treat stations and ticketed rides including a MINI COASTER! There will be a selection of food trucks so you can spend the WHOLE evening here! Open daily Halloween week - Oct31.
  • FREAKLING BROS: Trilogy of Terror
    This is where you go if you want to be real-life horrified. This isn't your cute neighborhood haunted house. The Freakling Bros are coming for a FULL scare you out of your pants vibe, and they never disappoint. So, if extreme fear is your thing (like me), this is a MUST. See hours in the Haunted House section below or link for details.
  • Zombie Paintball Express @ Bonnie Screams
    I've been dreaming of shooting zombies since I was introduced to Zombies in Call Of Duty. This is that in REAL LIFE and I'm obsessed! For $30 you can board the Zombie Paintball Express out in Bonnie Screams and see if you have what it takes to survive a Zombie take over. Count me ALL the way in. Get your tickets at the venue 7- 10:30PM Halloween week or call ahead. See link for details.

You can shoot zombies with paintballs through the windows while you ride a bus through a post-apocalyptic scene. This is my Call Of Duty dream come true.

Watch Next: BLEACH Live Action on Netflix

BLEACH - Live Action Movie
Let's talk Netflix! I spend so much time streaming my favorite shows and movies it is absolutely crazy. I'm sure if Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Prime (yes I have all of them) decided to tell me how many hours a month I spend using their streaming services it would be embarrassing. So, I totally know what's poppin on the streaming services and am more than happy to help you find your next entertainment title! Today, I'm telling you enough to get you excited but not spoil BLEACH!

Bleach was originally a manga (I never read it) then it became a TV series aka an Anime. I am a HUGE fan of the series and have watched the whole thing like 3 times on crunchy roll (Yes, I have that too). If you decide you like the movie, I 100% recommend you watch the series. Let me reel in my fangirl and tell you the basics:

The main character, Ichigo is just a regular-degular 15 year old (Who looks NOTHING like a 15-year-old in the movie nor the anime) who can see …

Throw Back: That one time I competed in a pageant

Once upon a time, what seems like a long time ago I decided I wanted to be a beauty queen. It was definitely an experience I will never forget and I finally have the chance to tell you all about it!

I've always known that I wanted to help people in some way, and one day it dawned on me if I had a crown that would definitely give me a much louder voice to speak on issues I thought were important. So, I went searching for what I thought was the best pageant for me and I landed on Miss Nevada USA 2016. The only thing I knew about pageants at this point was from the Miss Congeniality movie and what I heard about from my cousin's social media pages. So from that, I thought it was going to be a breeze...PSYCH! It was probably the most grueling process of self-discovery I've ever put myself through.

My first step was figuring out how much all of this was going to cost. For me, it was a ridiculous amount that I just wasn't going to be able to make at my day job in time for th…

Meet Frances Urtaza


Frances Urtaza is a Las Vegas-based Energist, Alternative Therapy instructor, Nurse and Health Care practitioner of over 20 years. Caring for the communities she's had the opportunity to be a part of has always been a huge driving force in her life.

Mask Monday: Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

It is that wonderful time again where my skin is acting all the way out of control. This time it could be my horrible quarantine diet, stress, hormones, my 2-year-old touching God knows what then rubbing my face...the list of possibilities is endless. To combat that I'm going in the Mix, Mask & Hydrate 6 piece kit from Peter Thomas Roth that we got at an incredible value price.


Today, I am tapping into the Cucumber Gel Mask. It is an Extreme Detoxifying Hydration mask that is instantly refreshing (I keep mine in the refrigerator), cooling, and a moisturizing calming gel that helps soothe dry irritated skin. I've used this mask before, and know that it works wonders on my sometimes overly sensitive skin combination skin. I feel like my skin issues are coming from clogged pores and stress, so the detoxifying bit will really help me get to the smooth skin I just know exists underneath all this drama.


So, to start off I like to use a gentle cleanser to get any makeup, dirt or…

The Women of Las Vegas: Debra Storey of Blazzian Collection

Meet Debra Storey
Highly educated in Fashion and Business, Debra Storey uses her sleek and eye-catching designs to take the Las Vegas Fashion Scene to another level. Blazzian Collection was introduced to Las Vegas in 2008 at the Vegas Fashion Show Party. Since then, she has used her unique ability to create beautiful designs to help raise funds for causes such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Nevada and Save Black Boys Las Vegas. While we've all been following through with our orders to #StayHomeForNevada, Debra has been working hard to create masks that allow us an added layer of protection when we NEED to go out and using the proceeds from those orders to aid single parents who are struggling during this time get the essentials they need to care for their families.

Through the Blazzian Collection's official social media pages (Instagram, Facebook), we see that through the difficulty Las Vegas is currently facing through the closure of our entire state, Debra is sti…

Locals I Love: Angelic Frequency With Frances Urtaza

Welcome to my first edition of Locals I Love! This is going to be a weekly series I run where I will feature local people, businesses and services that are amazing, aiding our community and I think we should all know more about. To start this all off, I couldn't think of anyone whose commitment to the community I admire more than my very own mother, Frances Urtaza!

Frances is a local Reiki Master, Seraphim Blueprint instructor, facilitator, divine channel, crystal enthusiast, and the worlds most amazing mother (and a cool Mom at that) just to name a few things she does. She has aided hundreds in our local area through meditations, energetic shares, teaching classes on the different modalities she uses and by being a sympathetic and understanding shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen.

Once a month, she gifts to anyone available a free phone in guided meditation and energetic share where everyone can call in and have a moment to unwind, relax and tune in to a higher frequency. T…

Streaming: Disney and Pixar's 'Onward'

Disney+ dropped some blessings for us during this quarantine and I am so grateful! Since Social Distancing made it hard for us to safely go see 'Onward' in theatres when it came out last month, Disney and Pixar gave us a quarantine present and dropped it for us to stream from home WAY earlier than expected on Disney+! With 50 Million or more of us holding on tightly to our Disney+ subscriptions, let's all watch this one with or without the kids.

“While we’re looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes,” said Dan Scanlon (Director, “Onward”) and Kori Rae (Producer, “Onward”).¹ We've been socially distancing in my household for a bit longer than nationally directed, so we weren't able to see this in theaters. I play a cute Disney game with my son, "Disney Magic K…

Disney+ Watchlist: Throw It Back to Gummi Bears!

I just hit my own personal Disney+ nostalgic gold mine with our current binge favorite, Gummi Bears! I don't have any idea how old I was when I watched this, and I didn't remember a single thing from the episodes we watched before...but I was SURE singing the theme song at the top of my lungs the second it started!


Disney has given me such a beautiful moment to share my childhood with my son! Our usual TV time consists of me putting on something child-friendly, pulling out my laptop and getting back to work while shouting out whatever prompt the characters are looking for. But right now, with Gummi Bears, I have been so wonderfully present in the moment with him that it's beautiful.

Not only that, but now that I'm doing a whole little Disney series on the Blog it's given us the opportunity to do some crafts together, learn more about colors and coloring and find out what colors are our favorites! Right now, my young King is favoring Red. We'll see how long tha…
