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.

Miracle Ring from ELITE AND LUCK

Have you ever dreamed of a perfect soulmate? Of real love? A life without problems and full of happiness.

This beautiful Rose Quartz jewelry set by Elite And Luck represents all of this together. Is is a stone of the heart, unconditional love which carries a feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. Rose Quartz dissolves emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates love energy through the entire aura.

I shot this video to show you miracles do happen 🙂

 

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:

 

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 😉

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 :

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? 😉

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.

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 😉

14393405_712723732212021_273521337_o

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.
