What a week it’s been! As you may or may not know, I attended Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards this past weekend. I was joined by my fellow costars of “Earth to Echo”. We walked the “orange” carpet, did lots of interviews, and yes, took TONS of selfies.

Being that we were all newbies to this kind of scene, we didn’t know what to expect. Thankfully, the studio provided transportation, styling, hair, makeup, and everything in between.

Before the event, my cast mates and I met up at a hotel (along with our friends, family, managers, and agents) to prep for the event. This includes hair, makeup, styling, and lunch. I’d like to take this time to mention that before events, actors/actresses usually have several “looks” to choose from. I had three. I was going back and forth, but I kept coming back to the same one, the one that I ultimately ended up going with. Looking back, it was the best choice. The point I’m trying to make is when you’re faced with a dilemma, it is best to go with your gut. More times than not your first instincts are right. I’ve been trusting my instincts a lot more lately, and I’ve found it’s always benefited me in the end.

All right, back to it. We did some promotional videos for Just Jared Jr. and then off we went to the awards. We walked the “orange” carpet and did lots of interviews. I was lucky enough to have my cast mates beside me the whole time, and we took turns answering the interview questions. From there, we headed on in to watch the awards.

Watching the awards in person, as opposed to on TV, was awesome. Mark Wahlberg getting slimed had to be the highlight of my night, although seeing cuties Cody Simpson and Austin Mahone getting slimed wasn’t too bad either. 🙂

After the event, we decided to call it a night, which my feet thanked me for. My mom and I grabbed some sushi. Then, we headed home after the long night.

That’s all for now. See you next week!
