Yup, we're still in Bali and here is another post from The Griya Villas And Spa. This time I am showcasing my favorite swimsuit at the moment. It's from Thaikila a Balinese beachwear brand. I fell in love with them a few months ago by just randomly walking into their flagship store in Seminyak. I already wrote a short review about them here. What I love about this particular piece is the dream catcher netting on the belly area? How incredibly cool is this sexy yet sophisticated design?

Earth Tones

Location: The Griya Villas And Spa - Bali

Wearing earth tones are the new favorite, and today I am sporting a casual look I wore when we stayed at the luxurious Griya Villas And Spa in east Bali a few weeks ago. You can read more about it here.

With continuing hot temperatures in Bali, I keep reaching for light fabrics to stay cool. For some reason I really love the color combo army green and blush.  What do you guys think?

Just woke up to a million dollar view. This is what happened when we drove to Amed, a dreamy fishing village on the east coast in Bali. We were welcomed to stay at the spectacular Griya Villas And Spa for a relaxing weekend to unwind, taste the best foods and swim in our own private pool. What could be more heavenly than this right?

A Balinese Blessing

March 26, 2017

Location: Aqua Octaviana Bali Villa

I am lucky to be here in Bali and experience a real Balinese ceremonial blessing. We have been staying at the wonderful Aqua Octaviana Bali Villa and every year they prepare rituals and offerings to give thanks and to get rid of evil spirits. Bali is the islands of the Gods and it's so amazing to get to know their rich culture. By the way, how do you like my traditional  Balinese dress we picked for the ceremony?    

White Beach

Location: Pasir Panjang Beach - Kei Kecil Islands

 We have been in Bali for almost five weeks now, but I couldn't help but wanting to share these photos. These were our last days relaxing on The Kei Kecil Islands.

 Pasir Panjang Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Indonesia with the whitest sand and clearest oceans I have ever seen..

But let me tell you a statement piece in this print can look really effortless and cool. You just need to pair it with the right items. Keep on reading on how to rock the floral trend like a cool girl.

What's the hype about Bali island? 

Lately, I have noticed Bali becoming more and more the ultimate hot spot for pure relaxation. The beautiful beaches, great surf spots, the hippest restaurants, a huge yoga and vegan scene, a vibrant nightlife, alluring resorts and last but not least the rich culture is something that will keep you coming back over and over again for more. After four months on The Kei Islands in South East Indonesia, we are back in Bali and are absolutely loving it!

You can find yourself stretched out on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and still you have this gnawing feeling. What's happening? Well picture this. Six months ago, you were still in rainy Amsterdam scrolling your Instagram feed, lusting over tropical destinations. Now that you are here on a beautiful tropical island in east Indonesia you don't feel quite as content as you expected. What the hell is wrong with you? You scratch your multiple mosquito bites on your legs, You've counted twelve new bumps since yesterday. The itching is killing you. Catching Malaria is one of your worst fears, but let's not think about that..  You look around, gazing at the soft waves of the clear blue ocean and the swaying of the stunning palm trees. "It's so beautiful here'' you think while having another sip of a banana and avocado juice. This is paradise right? You try to think of what to eat for lunch. You crave Greek yogurt topped with blueberries and granola. How about an almond milk latté and a smoked salmon spelt sandwich? All the organic health foods you crave are not available in this part of the world. Let's eat white rice and fish again, but you don't want rice after four months. All you want is a solid freaking sandwich and a glass of wine. So what is this feeling? The last thing you want to feel is ungrateful. Being grateful is your life's mantra. it's what you live by, because life is good. Then it hits you and when it hits, it hits you hard...

Back To Basics On Warbal island

December 16, 2016

Here on the Kei Islands in Indonesia, the weather is still too warm and humid to feel any kind of a holiday spirit. Yes, we've seen Christmas trees and decorations in the shopping mall and quite a few cute houses have their Christmas lights up. Still, I feel like I am in a world way too far from anything wintery festive. Thankfully we have the sun here, though.

The weird thing is that I am longing for Europe and miss wearing layers of clothing, drinking hot cocoa and strolling through the cold. The only thing I can do is wear fall and winter appropriate trends and prints to feel like winter is here too. Of course, I am fooling myself lol. For now, I have to make do with drooling over winter wonderland photos by reading my favorite blogs.

I know, I know we always want the things not available to us don't we?
