How to get beautiful skin with Mila Moursi

I never thought I’d actually be able open up in public about my skin problems I’ve had over the years. I always thought I have to be perfect looking. Living in Hollywood since a few years has shown me even more how some girls have the PERFECT skin, no pimples, no wrinkles, just this beauty glow that every girl wishes to have.

When I was in the Disney band, I used to put so much makeup on all the time. We had so many appointments all day long, I wasn’t even able to remove my makeup in between, so I’d put one layer after the other one on top of it.

The result is pretty clear : my skin got so bad, I wouldn’t even leave the house anymore without wearing makeup at all. I went to so many Dermatologists who would put me on antibiotics, gave me very aggressive skin care products and nothing ever helped.

My skin right now : 

Finally after years and years of not being able to clear up my skin,  I finally got introduced to this lady Mila Moursi. With more than 30 years of experience, Mila Moursi is known as Beverly Hills’ secret and hidden expert in ultimate skin care.

I wanna take you on this journey with me and show you step by step what Mila Moursi is doing to get my skin looking all beautiful and glowing again.

Products I’ll be using for the next few weeks :

Face :

  • Cleanser
  • Toner
  • Serum
  • Refining Lotion

Body : 

  • Shower Gel
  • Refining Body Scrub
  • Firming Body Lotion
  • Rejuvenating Dry Body Brush
  • Revitalizing $ Beautifying Oil

Here is a video I did for my first visit at Mila Moursi Skin Care in Beverly Hills:

If you’re having bad skin, you have to see Mila Moursi. Trust me, I’ve tried so many different ways how to fix my skin. And spent so much money for absolutely nothing. After only one treatment, I called my parents and the first thing my mom said : Manou, your face looks different. What did you do? I explained her I finally found someone who will be able to fix my skin issues.

 

Can’t wait to show you all my end results after a few weeks treatments.

 

Testimonials :

I love Mila Moursi’s skincare line and treatments. She has helped keep my skin healthy and beautiful. Mila is an expert in her field and a true professional. I noticed a significant difference in my skin since I began using her products. She’s a skincare miracle worker!!! – Jennifer Aniston

I am blown away by Mila Moursi products and treatments. I love their consistency and scent.  But mostly, they work. It’s the best facial I have ever received.      – Courteney Cox

Since I began using Mila Moursi’s skincare line my skin has made a complete transformation. I noticed the difference immediately. Her products continue to improve my skin and keep it looking youthful and refreshed. I’m grateful for Mila and her products. – Chelsea Handler

 

 

My first time laser hair removal at LaserAway

I had my very first laser hair removal appointment at LaserAway. I did so much research before I went but I still couldn’t figure out if it hurt or not. (VIDEO AT THE BUTTOM)

When I got there, my first question of course: WILL IT BE PAINFUL? The beautiful lady with the perfect shaped eyebrows said “if you’re doing the legs, then no, you won’t have any pain” and thank god I was actually there to get my hair removed on my legs.

Now did I mention this was exactly the same doctors bed Khloe Kardashian got her very first laser hair removal done as well? Therefore I told myself, if she can do it, I can do it too;)

After filling out a ton of forms, I was finally ready to go into a small little room. I thought they wanna freeze me since the temperature was so cold, but I guess it had to be that way for the laser machine. The scary part is the sound of the machine, it was so loud so you can barely talk to each other.

Another lady came and told me to put this cute little white skirt on and then we all got those special glasses. Then I was laying down and she painted some kind of skeleton (well that’s what I call it, I’m sure there’s some kind of professional term for it) on my legs to know exactly which parts to laser after each other.

She turned the machine on and started on my lower legs close to the food. Then she stops and says “does it hurt?”. I thought I was fooled because honestly I couldn’t even feel she was doing something. So there you have my answer if it hurts : NO, it doesn’t hurt at all.

When I turned around on the back, you can feel a tiny little pinch, but it’s so fast that I didn’t really care at all.

Now watch the video to see my full experience:

 

My favorite strapless bra

I know the struggle is real when it comes to finding a good strapless bra.

I’ve tested out a few strapless silicone bras and here is my absolute favorite: The Kissbobo Women’s Strapless Invisible Self Adhesive Silicone Bra.

The bra is super easy to apply and remove and comparable with other bras: it literally stays the entire night. With some other brands I’ve been experiencing the bra would move or even come off after a few hours.

The packaging is my favorite part about it because it comes in this super cute bag which is perfect for all the people who travel a lot.

When you feel like it doesn’t hold that good anymore, simply wash it with warm water and let it air dry and the adhesive will regenerate itself for next use.

And this is how you can wear it with a top:

 

Hair Extenions Tutorial

Who doesn’t want hair extensions? If you saw my earlier blog about my hair, you’ll understand why it is one of my favorite days in the year to get new extensions.  Watch this tutorial to learn how I’m getting them done.

And of course we used my absolute favorite blow dryer and straightener from T3:)

 

 

 

If you ever wanna get new hair like me, this is the company I’m getting my extensions from (btw they have offices worldwide) :

How to wear your ankle boots

Honestly ankle boots are my absolute favorite shoes ever. No matter what you’re wearing, they always match. You can combine them simply with a dress, shorts and a T-shirt or jeans which is what I did.

These ankle boots from Sandgrens are all handcrafted in Sweden. Watch this video to see how they make them. It’s absolutely fascinating and inspiring to see a company growing that much over generations and generations.

The boots and also their big variety of clogs are a little bit more pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. The quality is amazing and they will last a good few years. So instead of buying new shoes every year, you spend a bit more but it’ll be that pair of shoes, you’ll wear even a few years later.

 

Prince’s house and the awkward Oscars

Thursday Feb 23rd

What an Oscar weekend?! Remember when Kesha broke into Prince’s house to make news and become famous? I’m not that crazy to do that plus I actually got invited from my friend Sonia Rockwell to watch a Haute Couture Fashion Show that takes place at Prince’s house. It is a perfect pre Oscar Black Tie Gala.

We arrive there around 8pm. The entrance is blocked with a huge gate. A guy is standing there, telling us we will be the last ones to enter the party. Lucky me who has a boyfriend who told me to hurry up while getting ready:) Otherwise we wouldn’t have made it on time.

The huge gate opens and we are walking up a very steep driveway until we’re arriving in front of a light up staircase. The entrance door was open and it leads us right into one of the multiple living rooms the house has.

img_0265

The event is inside a huge room and of course Prince’s music is playing. Everyone is dancing, drinking, networking, taking pictures on the red carpet people start sitting down for the fashion show.

img_0315

My friend Sonia who is hosting the party grabs the mic and let people know to sit down and get ready for the Beverly Hills Haute Couture Fashion Show, with Veteran Hollywood Celebrity Fashion Designers Dalia MacPhee, Kaptain and emerging designers Isaac Newton & Aaron Juton represented by International Designer Sandra Costa. Former Art Director of British Vogue and Allure as well as Hilfiger’s campaigns, Nazy Alvarez will coordinate with 15 top stylists from the celebrity style teams of Lisa Vann (Seattle) and William Edge (Nashville), with a fantasy fashion film set presentation and catwalk built by Ryan Williams Art Gallery (Las Vegas) and topped off with coordinated live music by Rock & Roll hall of fame musician Ralph Rieckermann of the Scorpions. The fusion of the creative talents each of the métiers d’Art artists is for the audience to experience the magic of fashion films in a live staged catwalk, the goal of immersing oneself inside the mind of the artist.

img_0298img_0454 img_0367 img_0378 img_0347

As soon as the Fashion Show is over, we are going for a walk inside the house to explore all the different rooms. Wow… Can I please move in? The rooms are very bright and the view is absolutely breathtaking.

I can officially say : I took a nap at Prince’s house 😉

Honestly, I didn’t wanna leave anymore but it got pretty cold and all I was wearing was this two piece from NOOKIE. I guess I should’ve brought a jacket but I guess a little but of suffering to look beautiful is what us girls love to do sometimes;)

Sunday, February 26th, The Oscars

As you all know, La La Land was mistakenly announced as the winner of the Best Picture award when it was actually Moonlight that won. Jimmy Kimmel tried to smoothen out this awkward moment.

I mean, let’s be honest? I felt like the only thing missing was the popcorn! How in the world can they mess up an envelope?

I wanna know your thoughts: Do you think this really happened by mistake? OR was it all planned? Can’t wait to read your comments…

Now I gotta go and watch these 2 movies which I still haven’t seen;)

Fancy – World’s Smallest Stabilizer for Smartphone

The struggle came finally to an end:) Fancy is the smallest, lightest, and the most stylish camera stabilizer for smartphones. It only weighs 180g – perfect for carrying around wherever you go. Charge for 2 hours and have 8 hours of instant smooth video. You can even charge your phone using the built in power bank. This is the end of blurry photos and shaky videos for everyone. And for my ladies (and maybe gentlemen), it has a little mirror and a built- in light.

Wewow Gimbal already reached their goal in Indiegogo by 281% but if you wanna help donating, please see the link below :

My experience at the 59th GRAMMY awards

Going to the Grammy’s has always been a dream of mine. It’s next to the Oscars one of the hardest award shows to get tickets for. They sell out within 3 minutes. After a few years of trying, I was finally one of the lucky ones who submitted right at 10am on December 8th 2016:)

These tickets were for the ceremony and the official after- party. But of course I wanted to walk the red carpet which is one of the most amazing things of the entire night. I was fighting for over 1 month to get access to the carpet. You have no idea how many NO’s I’ve gotten. How many people tried to help, but nothing worked. They said only nominees are allowed to walk it.

On January 6th, I picked up the tickets at the Convention Center in DTLA. After a lot of negotiating, I finally convinced the guy to give me red carpet tickets!! Can you imagine my face when we walked away from the ticket office? I don’t remember the last time I had such a big smile on my face 🙂

Now having red carpet access, what kind of dress will I wear? Big thanks to PETA & CLD Style PR who helped me so much getting this amazing vegan dress from Madison James.

It’s February 10th, the big day is here. I’m beyond excited and super nervous at the same time cause I had no idea what’s awaiting me.

10.30am My Make Up artist Steven Bartling and my hair stylist from Hairdreams Marion Scott arrived

2pm : we’re ordering a luxury Uber car to drop us off at the Red Carpet.

3.30pm : after getting the car inspected by LAPD, we’re finally ready to get dropped off at the entrance

These boots are made for walking

2017 : A new year with new chances, new feels, new days, new desires and last but not least NEW SHOES!! I got these new boots from L’Artigiano (Italy) just in time for the cold winter in Switzerland.

Since 6 years I live in Los Angeles where it’s always sunny and we have very warm temperatures- basically the dream weather if you think about vacation 😉 And now I’m flying to Switzerland for Xmas to visit my family where it’s cold, rainy and even snowing. I couldn’t be any happier when these boots arrived. They’re not just super stylish, unique and cute, they’re actually more than perfect for typical European weather.

Of course I fell in love with the boots and had to wear them everyday no matter if I just went grocery shopping or actually travelled entire Switzerland with it. And you wouldn’t believe how many people asked me where I got them;) You know when you have that one pair of shoes / accessories which everyone will compliment you on it cause it’s just so original? Yep, that’s my new pair right here!

If you’re fast, you will even get a discount on all their shoes. It’s WINTER SALE until the end of January. Some of the items are up to 50% off.

I’m actually going to get grocery now and guess what I’ll be wearing? 😉

SUNDAY BEAUTY ROUTINE

Lately I’ve been trying to keep my Sundays free so I can relax and do my weekly beauty routine. It feels so good and gives me motivation and energy for the entire week.

I usually start out with taking a bath and watching a movie on my laptop.

beauty-routine-pic

BODY

For all the girls out there who are trying to get rid of stretch marks & cellulite, this is an amazing scrub I found from rubnscrub. The entire package is between 10-20$ but it will last for a few months. It smells amazing and keeps your skin hydrated; especially good for the winter when my skin gets very dry.

img_4332

Once I’m done with my bath (usually almost 2 hours until I’m done with the movie), I’m using a body lotion from Shea Moisture which has all natural and organic ingredients.

HAIR

Since I have hair extensions and it takes a while for them to dry, I’ve started using this pillow proof blow dry express treatment primer from Redken which has helped me so much protecting my hair and get it dry so much faster. By the way if you wanna know more about my hair extensions, read my last blog post (click here).

NAILS

Now that my hair is done, I’m moving on to my nails. When I was younger, I always messed up doing my nails. I had never enough patience to wait and let them dry 100% before touching something. Now that I have my Sunday beauty routine, I know I have enough time to let them dry before messing them up:) The ones in the picture are my favorite colors from LONDONTOWNUSA for the fall / winter.

SMELL GOOD 🙂

Now, that’s just me and maybe I’m weird but I always love to put on some perfume when I get out of the shower / bath cause I just love to smell good. Even if I’m just staying at home and don’t go out at night. My little tip is the Luxuryscentbox perfume which is a monthly description. I’m someone, I get tired of something very quick and like to change it up all the time. Luxuryscentbox is perfect for me since I don’t have to pay so much money for a new perfume which I’ll have to wear for a few months before buying a new one. They send you a new fragrance each month:)

perfume

After this routine, I’m all relaxed and ready for the week, I’m just gonna lay on my couch, drinking hot tea, read all your comments and go through some of your instagram stories 🙂

And NO, I didn’t get paid to tell you my beauty routine. These are all the products I love the most and I’ve been using some since years, some just lately.

 

All about my hair

In this blog I wanna tell you the secret of having long and thick hair 🙂

Have you ever curled your hair and after 1 hour all the curls are gone? Since I am a teenager, I always tried different styles with my hair. But nothing would ever work or last long. My hair is very thin and therefore hard to style. It became to a point where I was so frustrated of wearing always straight hair. In 2007, I tried hair extensions from HAIRDREAMS for the first time.

I can tell you ladies : my life completely changed 🙂 Finally I could do whatever I wanted with my hair. I could curl them, straighten them, put them up in a cute ponytail, make some long braids… And since that day, I could never be without extensions from Hairdreams anymore.

Here are a few questions I get always asked about my extensions :

1. What kind of extensions do you have?

The hair is added with the Nano which is a laserbeamer. 

2. Is it real hair?

YES! I recommend always get real hair extensions. The money is 100% worth it. You don’t wanna go somewhere cheap when it comes to hair. 

3. How long does it take to get them done?

The process is very simple: First they cut my own hair, then they color it so it fits the extensions and then the extensions take about 1 hour max to add them to my own hair. 

4. How long can you let them in ?

Usually you can tell when it’s time to get new ones cause they “grow out” with your own hair. But generally every 4-6 months. 

5. Is it more difficult to style your hair like that?

For me it’s actually so much easier since I can finally do curls and other fun styles. The only thing you have to pay attention is to NOT put heat on the bond of the extension, otherwise you can melt the little piece where they’re attached to your own hair.

6. Don’t hair extensions damage your own hair?

I get this question asked all the time. And I can say, I’ve had extensions since almost 10 years now and I never had any problems of my own hair being damaged. Plus I’m doing so many photoshoots and style my hair all the time. I LOVE trying out new hairstyles and without the extensions I could never do anything like that. I think I would look the same in each picture…haha…

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask them in the comment section and I’d be more than happy to answer them. See the pictures below to get an understanding on how the entire process works.

hairdreams-pic7

This is a before picture. I still have some old extensions in it and I actually cut the hair myself a day before I went to get new hair just to see how I’d look like with shorter hair 😉

hairdreams-pic2

hairdreams-pic1 This is me without any extensions. Concerning the color: I decided to go with an ombre. I’ve had so many different colors before but I never had an ombre.

Hotel DIVA in San Francisco

Don’t you feel sometimes it’s very difficult to make a decision which hotel to stay at when you’re traveling, and you don’t know the city that well? You wanna be in the center but you also don’t wanna spend all your money on just the hotel.

Well here is my Hotel recommendation for San Francisco:

Hotel Diva is the most amazing hotel EVER! It’s in the middle of Union Square in San Francisco. You can either take the bus or Uber to wherever you wanna go to. I stayed at the Executive King Room which is very modern and super stylish. It comes with a big king size bed and a couch which you can convert into a bed. Everything is black & white, and don’t forget to close the window shades with the sexy pictures on it. The room had a little work corner with a desk, a fridge and a little sink. Although My favorite thing was the DIVA pillow 🙂 If you like to drink a little shot before you go out to enjoy the nightlife, they have Cosmopolitan shots in the lobby everyday between 5-7pm.

For all the DIVA’s like me… lol… out there, this is such a great hotel to stay at if you wanna feel like a DIVA for one night.

Halloween with Spirit Halloween

This year I can’t wait for Halloween to finally be here:) Who doesn’t like to dress up in crazy costumes and feel all scary and bloody for 24 hours?

I partnered up with Spirit Halloween and Spencer’s to make this years Halloween extra special. I decided to shoot a scary video and do a fun photoshoot with the characters from the video.

If you haven’t decided yet what to wear for Halloween, Spirit Halloween and Spencer’s are my two favorite stores here in LA (worldwide shipping). Their choices on costumes is beyond overwhelming and you can find anything you need to look scary, sexy, bloody or funny.

Here are some of the outfits I picked for our Halloween video we shot:

Sequoia National Forest

Sequoia National Forest; well known for The General Sherman tree, the largest tree on earth.

My insider TIPS :

  • really make sure you know where you’re going. Once you get there, there’s no internet connection at all.
  • be prepared for  A LOT of flies and other little bugs. You might wanna bring a bug spray
  • Sequoia National Forest is very big, it takes 1 hour just to get to the General Sherman Tree once you enter the park
  • Park entrance fee : 30$
  • Make research which trail you wanna walk : there’s so many and it’s very easy to get lost in the park since you won’t have any service with your phone

Where to stay at :

You can thank me later for this TIP 😉 The Geteway Lounge and Restaurant is one of the most popular Lodge and Restaurants at Sequoia National Park. It’s located right at the entrance of the park. Their restaurant is unbeatable and top rated because of its view of the Kaweah Rivers; which is absolutely breathtaking and relaxing. Visitors know about the continental cuisine and its excellence. If you’re lucky, you might even see a bear on the other side of the river while enjoying some nice dinner on the outdoor patio. The cutest thing is the 20 “Gateway ducks” floating and walking up and down the river.

We had a room with 2 queen size beds since we spent most of the time out in the forest doing photo shoots. If you’d like some more luxury, I highly recommend the “Honeymoon Suite cabin” which features a private sauna and a private balcony with view on the Kaweah River.

New iPhone – new case?

It’s that time of the year where everyone is upgrading their iPhones. And with the new iPhone we need a new case. Girls, how many of you have multiple cases just to make sure it fits the outfit? Yes, that’s me… I can’t just have one and stick with it. Everytime I leave the house, everything needs to match together. Let’s just put it this way : aren’t we all perfectionists somewhere?

Well here is my iPhone case collection from Richmond & Finch :

My favorite travel accessories

Since you guys might know I’m travelling a lot for my blogging. Over the time I made a list of my all time favorite travel accessories I have ALWAYS with me :

file-oct-07-3-13-55-pm

  1. Tote Bag from Sorial : It’s the perfect size for a bag you carry around in the city. I chose the white color since it matches any kind of outfit you wanna wear. Use the Coupon code MANOU20 when you checkout to get 20% off your purchase. Expires by the end of October.
  2. High Heels from Qupid Shoes : Never leave the house without a pair of high heels in your car 😉 At some point you might need it. Just put them in a separate bag in the trunk and I promise you: if you don’t bring them, you’ll definitely need them!
  3. iPhone6 case from Richmond And Finch : This case is so perfect for any time you’re leaving the house. It’s very light and it has 3 different card slots to keep your daily essentials organized.
  4. Christian Paul watch : How can people be without a watch? I mean, how many times do you look at your phone just to check the time? And how many times is your phone battery about to die cause you turned it on and off too many times? This watch is so stylish and it fits any kind of outfit from elegant to stylish casual. The most fun about this:  you can create your own watch with Christian Paul 🙂
  5. Peak Cosmetics Mascara : A girl knows the rules: Even if you don’t have space to carry all your make up around. A little bit of Mascara will change everything! This one is the 3D fiber Mascara which makes your lashes bigger & more voluminous looking by applying first the Gel and then the Natural Fibers. Try it out, I promise your lashes never looked that amazing before!
  6. Simag Jewelry : Simag Jewelry lets you create a bracelet with your own words on it. I chose HAPPY & FREE since I’ve never felt more fulfilled in my life than now. The freedom is here since I don’t do music anymore. Most of the people don’t understand but it’s very nice to don’t have that pressure anymore of “having something accomplished by that day, otherwise…. “
  7. Southbeachofficial Slippers : Can they be any cuter? I kinda wanna walk around my apartment all day long and don’t even leave the apartment anymore since I got those 🙂
  8. Southbeachofficial Eye Mask : It’s a panda !! I honestly can’t wait to wear it when I’ll be travelling to Switzerland in December 🙂 Little side note : it’s only 7.50$ which means perfect add on to your christmas gift for your girlfriends, bff’s, sister, mom, cousin…. Don’t wait until it’s too late. They’re selling out fast.

What to expect when visiting Lake Tahoe

Where do I start? Is it enough said if I’d tell you I could imagine to live there one day? Coming from traveling all these canyons, the desert, the cities such as Las Vegas and Salt Lake City and then you’re arriving at this lake surrounded by huge trees. Houses made out of wood, the people are super nice and the rocks on the lake shaped as round as a perfect ball.

Lake Tahoe is also very famous for their winter season. It reminds me of all the ski resorts in Switzerland 😉

Here is my Tip which spot you definitely don’t wanna miss while visiting Lake Tahoe :

  • Emerald Bay : Wow! Just wow! Driving through the forest with all these super cute tree houses / camping areas/ hotels / christmas decorated houses (yes, you heard right, Christmas decoration in August) right and left. Then you get on top of the mountain where the view is absolutely breathtaking. If you get a chance to watch the sunset, do it!

What to know about The Great Salt Lake

The Great Salt Lake, the largest saltwater lake in the western Hemisphere. In winter the lake is filled up with water and only the edges are frozen. And in summer, the water level drops and you can actually walk on the lake.

Driving to The Great Salt Lake, there’s a few Tips I wanna give you :

  • In summer you can walk on the lake BUT it smells extremely bad
  • when you leave, you’ll be having a lot of tiny bugs in the car (they’re everywhere in the parking lot)
  • walk out until you see the water, that’s where it’s the most beautiful
  • be prepared to see a lot of dead birds everywhere
  • we stopped at The Great Saltair which is a good place you can walk out on the lake

You might think now: after reading all this, why would I even go there? I’m telling you why: Because once you stop being a PUSSY and step outside your comfort zone, I’m telling you : it’s absolutely amazing!! The colors of the water, the sky with the mountains in the background, the whole scenery is breathtaking! I took my shoes off and walked into the lake. It’s not deep at all, it only covers your feet. The ones who watched my LIVE chat on Facebook, they know I almost lost my phone in the lake! I pressed the button GO LIVE and my phone fell out of my hands while walking in the lake. Luckily somehow I caught it and it was safe 🙂 And the fun part: it was all captured on video!

See the pictures below and you’ll understand why you need to go there walking next to dead birds and stinky smells.

Where to stay in Salt Lake City

DAY 7

Who has ever been in Salt Lake City before? (Leave your answer in the comment section). Tell me your experience and how you liked it. This was my very first in the City of Mormon. We arrived on a Friday night at the very fancy 4 star KIMPTON HOTEL MONACO in Salt Lake City. Located in the middle of Downtown yet in a super quiet area. The entrance is super cute with 2 little bowls for dogs to drink water. The lobby is very stylish with all these couch corners everywhere. On the way to the elevator they have water with cucumbers and a big bowl with fresh green apples.

Opening the door to the room, the first thing I see: the bed looks way too comfortable. How will I be able to get up in the morning? I already knew I’ll be spending some time in this room since it’s so majestic, stylish and cozy at the same time. Our room was facing the main street and it was Friday night, yet I’ve never stayed in the centre of a city where it was so quiet. We felt like in a town of zombies!

Since they knew I was travelling with my little dog ZUZU, they got us a little dog bed and 2 bowls for food and water. And not just for the furry friends, even for us there is complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby each morning. So if you’ll ever plan on travelling either for work or for fun with or without your little furry friends, this is the perfect hotel you wanna stay at in Salt Lake City.

Chipmunk vs Manou at Bryce Canyon

Day 6

After a very cozy night at the DAYS INN in Kanab, we’re heading over to the breakfast room where they have everything from Pancakes, French Toast, Granola, Juices, Bread, Bagel, Donuts, Omelettes, Yogurt, Fruits… We usually ate quite a bit for breakfast since it was difficult to stop somewhere to eat simply because 1) we didn’t have enough time or 2) there was no food to be found within the next 2 hours of driving.

Today we’re going to BRYCE CANYON! Yay! My favorite stop on this entire trip. Before I start, there’s a few things to know about Bryce Canyon.

  1. When you’re driving there coming from the 89 and then the 12, there is a beautiful Canyon called RED CANYON about 10 miles before BRYCE CANYON. A lot of people think that’s BRYCE CANYON but unfortunately it’s not.
  2. BRYCE CANYON has 2 very amazing lookout spots : one is the BRYCE INSPIRATION POINT and the other the SUNSET POINT. If you have the opportunity, you should take time to do both. At the INSPIRATION POINT you’ll get to see how massive and big the Canyon is. And at the SUNSET POINT you’ll have the chance to actually walk down into the Canyon.

We arrived at the INSPIRATION POINT parking lot and went all the way up to the highest lookout. It got so windy, we all had to hold each others hats 😉

When you’re standing there looking at this huge Canyon, it seems unreal. The way it’s shaped, absolutely beyond what you’ve ever seen in your life. We decided to walk all the way from INSPIRATION to the SUNSET POINT.

Can I please mention this cute little “friend” we made when walking into the Canyon at SUNSET POINT? He didn’t bother at all when tourists were taking pictures / filming him how he was eating his dinner 🙂 Now the little thing to remember: what walks down, must walk up again….. Walking from the INSPIRATION POINT is was all kinda down the hill, and now it starts getting cloudy and we have to walk all the way back again. Meanwhile our camera died since we took sooooooooo many photos of this so beautiful scenery so we decided to start walking back to our car again.

Because we had a 4 1/2 hour drive to Salt Lake City, we couldn’t stay for the sunset. Honestly if I wouldn’t have been so exhausted from all the walking we did the last few days, I would’ve stayed another few hours. You can’t get enough of the beauty of this Canyon.
