With this new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis from the World Health Organization, I thought it was time to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty talking about the topic since no one seemed to be trying. Join me this week on Games Geek Tech where I offer a new perspective on video game addition using positive psychology and game design.
Tune in and listen to my 3-min break down starting around the 90-minute mark:

Before we get into the actual industry event, let’s start off with where I stayed with my partner in crime @ZuneGirl! My beautiful home away from home in downtown Los Angeles was nearby everything! It just so happened we were also down the street from the SONY press conference! We didn’t even need to attend it. The AirBnb included access to the pool and jacuzzi which was surrounded by foliage! See below for the view outside our window into the atrium and pool!
On the First Night..
It was honestly a blur of after parties way before the doors opened! YouTube Gaming’s after party location was incredibly beautiful but there was no open bar and no food. For such a big company, you’d think they would really make an impression?
The PUBG party was incredible with catering from all over the world and unlimited cocktails based on different landing zones in the game! I got to mingle with some incredibly talented Twitch and Mixer Streamers. I arrived at the party in style accompanied by the handsome gentleman and Mixer Partner Backdraft.
Facebook Gaming Party was quite possibly the most shocking event of the night! With Instagram booths to take the most iconic photos, Oculus Rift games available to play, unlimited drinks and food, tons of space in a giant theater in downtown Los Angeles you wonder how could it get better?
BUT IT DID! Out came the famous dance group the Jabbawockeez performing some of the most popular songs. But Facebook Gaming wasn’t done spoiling us….oh no.. They got DJ Khalid up in here! I legit lost it. 🤣
Our First Day At E3
So how does the FABulous Narz start her first day at E3? By being VIP at the Fortnite Arena! 😎 ZuneGirl and I stayed in the shade during the outside Fortnite Arena event overlooking the entire tournament. Some of the biggest celebrities like Xavier Woods, Marshmellow, Pokimane, and Ninja participated in the tournament.
The weather was literally unbearable. I can’t even imagine how the viewers or the players in the sun were handling it. Regardless, the event was streamed on YouTube, Facebook, Mixer, and Twitch accumulating over 1.5 Million max concurrent views across multiple channels! Ridiculous!
Day Turns To Night
We end up heading over to the Mixer Mixer where we see some old friends from the Mixer NYC Studio where we use to work at. We then group up and then head over to the official Fortnite After Party! Possibly the best after party at E3 and only 2nd best to Twitch Con’s 2017 after party.
What ends up happening can be easily described by the collage of photos below for your viewing pleasure. Yes, there were pinatas and toilets all over the Fortnite after party. YES, I bumped in Hai Lam. 😍
Our 2nd Day at E3
We make our way to the center for Day 2 having not set foot on the floor on the first day. We made our way around the floor saying hi to friends and such.
Our Last Day
Honestly, the entire week went by so quickly and most of the time my phone was dead. (haha I need a portable charger…) All in all, this year E3 was by far worth every penny and effort going. I met so many contacts and amazing people it blew my mind away.
Thank you to all the Mixer staff and streamers that showed me so much compassion and love! Thank you to everyone who took time to see me during the hectic week!

You know what truly inspires the broken dreams, broken hearts, disdained, lost, and depressed to pursue their dreams? Success stories from people like Patrick Starr; a diligently positive, passionate, and humble MUA from Florida turned YouTube’s biggest makeup star. How did Patrick Starr get his start in makeup before turning into the biggest name in makeup? To be frank, it wasn’t something you think from movies like The Devil Wears Prada, no this was more humbling. A MAC Cosmetics manager in a Florida mall gave a young hardworking creative soul a job. An opportunity. A chance.
These days, we find ourselves striving for more in life, to make it to the top and sometimes forget to throw the rope back down. Or maybe we just don’t want to. But not Patrick. Nope. Patrick Starr is an angel. It was no wonder he came out on stage in wings covered in silver glitter and white diamonds. It’s no wonder that as Patrick spoke about his past, his pains, and his love for his fans that the whole room turned into sobs, cheers, “YASSS”, and snaps. Coming full circle, starting from the bottom, working at a MAC Cosmetics store and now being the first ever influencer to work with MAC Cosmetics for a whole new makeup collectionspeaks volumes of the road Patrick has taken to this point.
This premier party was not in celebration to the makeup line, though that is part of it. No, the real celebration was the belief that success does happen. It can happen to anyone, you just cannot give up. You Cannot Give Up. As Patrick showcased his new products, the words he spoke gave a solemn understanding of a critical realization, “I can’t believe this is happening.If I can do it, you can do it. You can do anything.”
Congrats to PS, you deserve this and much more darling. Check out Patrck Starr X MACCosmetics collab collection here.
Got to try out some Garnier Fructis products thanks to Influenster! I’m all for my hair. From treatments to masks, different conditioners for each season, and even massage oil therapy, my hair is pampered (even more than me!). But irons are a love-hate relationship because, on the one hand, it damages your hair but on the other hand, your hair looks better than Fabio’s after straightening it into perfection. So it’s always a good idea to use heat protectant hair products. This keeps ends from splitting, fraying, and frizzing. Just note, every flat iron is different! I use an Iron: AsaVea Hair Straightener Brush 3.0 to straighten my hair.
