Day trip to Catalina Island

Living in LA since 7 years, I’ve always heard so many stories about Catalina Island and how beautiful it is. You guys know how much I love traveling and seeing new places.

Whenever I go on trips, I do a lot of research, what do to, how to get there, what’s the most famous spot to visit but also the most beautiful places to take photos at. I basically already know the place before I even go there;)

Watch my VLOG to see what do on a day trip to Catalina Island:

I booked the boat and the activities via Tripadvisor . I think it was one of my fastest planing ever. Compare to all my other trips I’ve done so far, I was always stumbling through different websites to do my research what to do. With Tripadvisor you can read all the reviews, see what people like the most, how much it costs and then book it in a few simple steps.

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.

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.

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.

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 😉

My beautiful date ❤

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;)

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.

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-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.

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.

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.
