Hits Sessions Starring Hailee Steinfeld

 
 

If you are still experiencing the rush from last week's HITS Sessions starring Haillee Steinfeld, you are NOT alone! 

It all went down at Revolution Live, Courtesy of Lexus of North Miami and Lexus of Pembroke Pines - and of course the New Hits 97.3!  The incredibly talented entertainer took the stage at Revolution Live with her sweet singing, dynamic dance moves, and awesome attitude! 

 
 

I had the pleasure of DJing and opening up for Miss Steinfeld before her performance, and I must say the crowd was on fire!!  In the words of Hailee "Oh my goodness you guys are amazing!!" Not only was the energy of the crowd incredible from the moment they lined up at the door outside Revolution Live, but the Hits 97.3 listeners' energy only grew throughout the night! 

The crowd flooded in so excitedly and were extra-interactive, dancing and singing at the top of their lungs!  I played a couple songs from Justin Bieber including "Let Me Love You" and "Cold Water", Ariana Grande with "Be Alright" and "Into You", and "Side to Side", and pretty much everything and anything Fifth Harmony - and the entire Revolution Live was filled with screaming singing voices!  :D

 
 

Then finally, the moment we were all waiting for, Hailee Steinfeld's 4 beautiful dancers took the stage with their fierce dance moves, followed by Hailee herself and the audience was in total awe!!! 

 
 

After performing 5 songs, including her new HIT record feat Zedd and Grey "Starving", a cover of "Love Yourself", and of course her breakout hit, "Love Myself", Haillee did a super fun interview with Frankie P that covered Kale Chips, gummy bears, setting DJ Khaled straight, what's next and who she'd love to collaborate with!  For all the juicy details check out the full video below!

Loco for Ocho!

 
 

Ever wanted something so much, you’d go the distance to have it?!  Meet my something:  Ocho Candy.  Since the first time I ate an Ocho (no pun intended), I was hooked - this infinitely tasty little morsel of goodness has had me hunting for Ocho's at every store I stop by.  

:D Jokes aside, I - no joke - convinced my friend to bring me back 8 bags of Peppermint Ocho's for me from New York City to Miami!  It didn’t hurt that I’ve known her since I was 4 and we’d do anything for each other, but still, I don't just wake up every day and ask people to ship me candy from around the world!

 
 

Now, you may be wondering "WHY a candy is worth bringing across almost ten states?"  You may ask yourself, "Do they not carry Ocho's ANYWHERE between south FL and NYC?"  The answer is:  of course they do!  You can actually find Ocho candies at Target and Whole Foods, and a grocery store called Tunies in Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs :D

One particular flavor though - Peppermint Creme covered in dark chocolate - was available around Christmas time in south Florida last year, and I haven’t been able to find it ANYWHERE since!  But as fate would have it, my good friend found them in the Big Apple :)  

 
 

There are half a dozen or so flavors of Ocho, ranging from Carmel and Mocha to Coffee and Coconut, and more.  Some are covered in milk chocolate, others in dark - and I’ve heard they are ALL delicious.  The two that I’ve tried (the only two I can personally have, since they don’t have wheat or Dairy ingredients) are the Peppermint and the Coconut.  The Peppermint, I like to say, tastes like a Peppermint Patty, but with the consistency of a Milky Way.  The Coconut is just like a Mounds bar, except it's vegan and there is no corn syrup or preservatives - and it is certified USDA Organic! 

 
 

So whether you’re looking for a healthier alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth (or for me - sweet teeth!), or if I’ve just left you curious as to what Ocho candies are all about, look for them at your local grocery store or check out more info online at OchoCandy.com
