Halloween Kills ~ A Generational Affair EXCLUSIVE

Halloween Kills ~ A Generational Affair EXCLUSIVE

Halloween Kills is a generational affair. Jamie Lee Curtis attends the red carpet in Los Angeles as her mother’s Psycho character, Marion Crane. The Halloween films spans three generations (more than 40 years) of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

Jamie Lee Curtis Halloween Kills Red Carpet

Halloween Series Synopsis

Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again (IMBD).

Series Synopsis

Halloween Kills is the continuing saga of Myers and Strode in the next thrilling chapter of the Halloween Series. It is recommended to watch Halloween 2018 before heading to the theatre, Sean James (Hairstylist to the Stars).

Halloween Kills brings Curtis’ character, Laurie Strode, three generations together for a final confrontation with Myers (masked figure who has haunted Strode for four decades) on Halloween night.

Curtis states regarding the film, “It’s going to be very exciting. People will be shocked. People are going to be agitated by this movie, in a way that I think they’re not expecting. That to me makes a great sequel. . . To all those people that love these movies, Happy Halloween.” (EPK.TV)

Halloween Kills Styling (EXCLUSIVE)

Creating Curtis into Strode takes a team. Sean James, hairstylist for Curtis, takes this powerful beautiful woman from her strong representation of being “true to herself” to Strode, traumatized by Myers for decades.

Red Carpet Styling

Halloween Kills U.S. film screening, at the TCL Chinese Theatre is a costume party. Curtis dresses like her mother, Janet Leigh, in her famous character, Marion Crane, from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film, Psycho. The styling did not miss a beat down to the wig created by James, using FHI products (see discount below). The struggle was real as wigs are in short supply because of the pandemic.

The search for Scarlett Johansson’s wig from the film Hitchcock was not located. The high and low search turns to a golden blonde colored wig. James states, “I could not find a golden wig anywhere. They kept showing me Marilyn Monroe wigs and platinum blonde wigs. Finally one was located that was as close as possible during this time.”

The wig was the wrong cut and texture. The next process was to cut and style the wig into the bubble (even Barbie has a wig that is the bubble style) style of her mother. James did his magic on the wig with FHI Heat Stylus High Altitude and FHI HEAT Platform Bounce Pro Curler to create the perfect look that Janet Leigh inspired in the 1960s.

The red carpet creation is completed with a bloody shower curtain.

Past Movie Styling

James has been doing Curtis’ hair since 1995. Curtis brought her daughter into Fred Segal Salon. She asked for James to do her daughter’s hair. Soon Curtis asked James, “What would you do with my hair?” James states, “I suggested we chop it all off. Then we had different versions of her hair.”

Halloween H2O we brought hair color to the shorter style. This change was a concern for Curtis. She was doing Activia Yogurt at the same time. It is important to stay true and honest to her audience and fans. Curtis was honest about her hair color. She was on Oprah stating the way Hollywood distorts imperfect beauty. The More Magazine article shows all the secrets of styling, stylus, and hairstyles as well as what Hollywood is and the falsification of people’s image.

The color change was a turn from her natural hair color. Making coloring difficult Curtis does not sit still for more than 20 minutes. The concept of processing color every three weeks to cover the natural gray was absurd to her. She hates having her hair colored.

Halloween Kills Press

James says, “It is so exciting doing all of the press for the movie. Going to Venice Film Festival with Curtis for the world premiere, James Corden, Kelly Clarkson, and Rachel Ray Show. It is wonderful watching Curtis shine with this new movie. I cannot wait for everyone to see it. It is a fantastic horror film. It is really a wonderful reveal of the town of Haddonefield, Illinois. I can hardly wait for the third part, Halloween Kills.

Excited to see this movie this weekend. You see your local theatre listings or go to Peacock TV for streaming options. Post your movie review here.

Le Vian ~ Positivity Love and Resilience

Le Vian ~ Positivity Love and Resilience

Le Vian presents their upcoming jewelry for the year with positivity, love, and resilience. This is just in time for fashion week, holiday events and gift giving, and red carpet award season. A favorite is jewelry and the ability to create a spark and look that is yours alone. 

Le Vian 2021 Trends 4Chion Lifestyle Accessories
Le Vian 2021 Trends

Positivity, Love, and Resilience

This is an exciting time after a year of Covid. The message from Le Vian is: 

  • Positivity inspiration is the sunshine and its various iterations, alluding to sunny days ahead. 
  • Resilience comes in the form of an increasingly popular metal, platinum, which becomes tougher with every knock, a notion now so apt and strengthening.
  • Love is reinventing of colors di,amonds, gems, and gold to create the various collections. The real love is the continued spirit of contributing to charity. 
Le Vian Feature Trends Jewelery 4Chion Lifestyle i
Le Vian 2021 Trends

Le Vian History

This family owned company for centuries includes their customers and collectors. They are part of the family. Being a family business allows for them to continue with their ability to invest in innovation, take care of their collectors like members of the family, and do things no other jewelry company does. The sense of integrity, responsibility, giving back, and a passion that has lasted through the generations

Their history dates back to 1746, when the Persian ruler Nadir Shah chose the Levian family to be the guardian of the jewels he’d plundered in Asia. The family has continued after each generation to remain innovative and relevant. Le Vian seen often on celebrities, over 300 times each year at various events with the PR firm D’Orazio & Associates. Celebrities must purchase the jewelry. They do not give celebrities the jewelry for the event. 

Le Vian Charity Spirit

The strong presence of Le Vian as a company that continues to make a difference in the world. The event in Las Vegas the charity donations are around $1,000,000 for this event alone. The charities they support include Children, St Jude’s Hospital, Le Vian’s Rafa Foundation the company has a variety of causes, including supporting local communities, medical charities, and building schools in the areas where there are diamonds mines. They contribute 10% all earnings before taxes to charity. 

The last live event held before the pandemic in 2019, a waiter, a single father at the event moved by the fundraising he pledged $200 of his money on the spot. This then also inspired a billionaire in the room to up his own donation by a handsome 6 figure sum.

Le Vian Trends 

The evening includes encapsulating the trends with a red carpet event. This is a large production event similar to the award shows. Here are a few trends from the catwalk fundraiser in Las Vegas. 

Love Trend

Love their recent collective experience is a push to seize every opportunity to express our love to those we hold dear. The heart shape as a symbol of their affection in bold style. The love collection is a beautiful collection to remind the wearer how much love they have in their life. 

Elephant Trend

The icon of the year is the elephant. This piece symbolizes the Le Vian family’s appointment as the guardians of the royal jewels of Persia in 1746. There is a great deal of lore across a myriad of cultures regarding the elephant. The trunk can bring energy, good fortune, or luck. 

Platinum Trend

This is a favorite! Platinum is one that represents resilience. The ability to continue to gain brightness and strength with each wear. Platinum use is with precious stones, like diamonds. This is great to keep going and become stronger with determination. 

Authenticity Trend

Authenticity stone is peacock aquaprase. This is a semi-translucent natural beauty gem. Each piece is unique from the rest. The creates the sense of passion, accepting, and continued learning. 

Pearl Trend

This is another favorite. I give my granddaughters pearls (fake at first) and they are my pearl girls. They get a set of pearls when turning 16, like their mother. They are classic and precious. The collection represents wisdom regarding our recent experience of reflection and hope. These come vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and honey. 

Obsession Trend

The chocolate diamond is the obsession collection. The 20-year anniversary diamond was on hold after the mine closed. This is a great stone for obsession. The collection is a feeling of a child in a candy shop but with diamonds. 

Statement Trend

Everyone needs a statement piece or two showcasing their personal style. Creating your statement piece can be combining several pieces. Le Vians statement trend is just that for men and women. The statement rings design is to offer flexibility in the expression of the wearer’s individuality.

Follow here for all the upcoming trends. This is the season for red carpets with VMAs tonight and Emmys® next two weekends. Post your favorite pieces or celebrity looks here

Spring Break Staycation ~ Phoenix Arizona

Spring Break Staycation ~ Phoenix Arizona

Spring Break Staycation time. As you manage work, schooling, and a new way of living a staycation can be a wonderful adventure. Arizona is home to great history, beauty, and top resorts in the world.

Taking a staycation with your children can be incorporated with their school work – history, geography, geology, and even math. Here is a great road trip for spring break or any weekend.

Spring Break Hotel

Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort Phoenix, AZ

A glorious resort in Phoenix nestle in the Tapatio Cliffs . This resort has comfort, COVID-19 protocols, and great entertainment. The comforts of home are here. A nice sitting room, and comfortable bedroom. The location is stunning for sunsets and sunrises. The several pools are accommodating for children and an adults only pool with a pool side bar.

Relaxing and enjoyment with spa, salon, and room service available. Take a moment to enjoy a desert and glass of wine on the patio or pool side. Experience the stunning outdoors with golfing, hiking, or the sun deck for evening sunrises. This location is prefect to venture and explore the great location around the state.

Spring Break Food

Staycations really need to have great food stops along the way.

Pappadeaux Phoenix, AZ

Pappadeaux Dining

Southern food is comfort food. Pappadeaux is a generation to generation restaurant brings fresh seafood and Louisiana-style favorite to the plate. Attention to details and tradition brings the comfort food to your dinner plate. This is a great place to get family style for your picnic or party in your hotel room. Dinner this night is Shrimp Etouffee, green beans, fried crawfish with one of the 2.27 million baguettes they make each year. Curb side pick-up perfection, not one item missed. Dinner was delish.

Andreoli Italian Resturaunt 4Chion Lifestyle
Andreoli Scottsdale, AZ

This is a home take on traditional Italian restaurant is popular with local. They have had many features including Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. This quant location serves as an Italian grocer and restaurant. You can cook your own or enjoy a home cooked meal.

They make everything from scratch including their own prosciutto, desserts, and homemade breads. The food is like walking into a great Italian home on Sunday. The food is a purest approach. If you are looking to mix and match your pasta this is not the location. They portion are fitting for one person not family style.

We enjoyed the Filetto Di Sogliola alla Mugnaia (fresh seafood), Gnocchi alla Corsara, and spaghetti with meat sauce. Dessert a must, the pasta is not over filling or heavy. We enjoyed chocolate mouse, coconut cake, and almond chocolate bark. The food is fresh and organic. The hand crafted pasta and food is by chef Giovanni Scorzo. He states on the web profile, “EAT the BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD and SHUT UP.”

The atmosphere is a true antique decor replicating any Italian grandmother’s living room. The family affair is felt within the staff as well.

Eclectic Cafe Tucson AZ

Eclectic Cafe in Tucson is “Where quiche meets enchilada.” The concept is a fusion of a variety of cuisines. The meal today includes vegan gazpacho (great summer treat chilled with garden fresh vegetables, Sherry’s shrimp salad, and Chicken Quesadilla. Took home a loaf of their zucchini bread, fabulous toasted with eggs for breakfast.

Mammoth Steak House and Saloon Lost Dutchman Gold Mine

This location is inside the The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine has great views of Superstition Mountains, food, and atmosphere. You can sit on the patio, at the bar, or inside. There is always a musician performing and has the real feel of the old town saloon. Enjoy a shot and a beer at the bar or a great meal.

Sweet Country Charm Payson AZ

Sweet Country Charm Candy Shop

The smell of sweet permeates the parking lot. It is a quant cozy welcoming candy shop in Payson Arizona. This sweet shop is in the Swiss Village Shoppes. They have homemade fudge, gelato, locally roasted coffee, handmade organic chocolate truffles, popcorn bar, nostalgic candies, handmade gifts.

Spring Break Attractions

Staycation In A Pandemic travel 4Chion Lifestyle

Tucson Mission San Xavier del Bac

This mission is apart of the wonderful history in Tucson. The missions are a big part of the culture and religion in the Southwest.

Mission San Xavier del Bac, a historic Spanish Catholic mission, is 10 miles south of downtown. This mission on the Tohono O’odham Nation San Xavier Indian Reservation. This location began with Franciscan missionary Fr. Juan Bautista Velderrain beginning in 1783. This mission has been apart of the New Spain, Mexico, and the United States since construction began.

The mission presents shells as a symbol of pilgrimage. The Baroque architecture is traditional with marbling, faux doors, and other details. The mission represents the struggles that have been with the Southwest, living in harsh conditions, the changes in governments, fire, and earthquake.

Casa Grande Domes

This is fun spot to stop and see from your car. It is a no trespassing area that is very unsafe especially for young children. This location was the hopes and dreams of many that never came true. This location was for manufacturing of computers but was never completed. There is an eerie feeling here. You can hear the walls speak as if there was life there but really the life has been one of decay and destruction.

Spring Break Payson Arizona

Payson Arizona is about 89 miles from downtown Phoenix to Payson on highway 87. It is a great drive from the Sonoran Desert to the top of the Mongolian Rim. The change in climate, altitude (from 1100 to 5000 ft.), and from big city to small town. This town offers a real homie feel and great location for adventure. A great lake and park for picnics, photos, and more. The beauty is pristine with four seasons of recreational activities.

Spring Break Tonoto National Forest

This is a great day in the old west driving up Apache Trail, an old trade route. There is so much to see and experience here. There is the Elvis Church with some old scenery from old cowboy movies, and a small replica of in the area gold mining. The actual gold mining town The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. This location has great fun, shoot outs, and a train ride to the mine. It is the actual town prior to the mine flooding and the town shut down.

The road winds up to Tortilla Flat a small place with a gift shop and restaurant. This location was established as they built the Roosevelt Damn. The location has great water fun from boating, swimming, and kayaking. It is a breathtaking ride but well worth the journey.

Wonderspace Scottsdale AZ

Great interactive art at Wonderspace in Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. The art here is interactive, bigger than life, and digit. You experience a new reality from the artist creations. The art changes the frame of art to an endless pallet. The children enjoyed the exhibit. My favorite is a tie from Myrkvidr and Shigeto: Hovering.
The art on exhibit at this time is:

RAINBOW ROOMS ~ Pierre le Riche

Stimulates a dialogue about identity, exploring struggles of discrimination, acceptance, and masculinity

FUJI ~ Joanie Lemercier

Focuses on projection or light in space and is influence in our perception.

HUMAN STUDY #1, 3RNP ~ Patrick Tresset

This exhibits allows the participant to have a portrait drawn by robots.

THANK YOU BAGS ~ Reed van Brunschot

MYRKVIÐR ~ Yasuhiro Chida

This is a circular hoop, not linear, rotates around in the piece to create the effect of immateriality.

KILLING TIME ~ Eric Mesplé

This combines Mesplé use of ferrofluid and metal work
