The heat in Bali always requires a girl to wear loose fitted and comfortable clothing. Heels? Tried it and trust me it was a huge mistake. Picture me almost falling flat on my face on a night out on the town. The street pavements here were probably invented by someone not thinking of any girl wanting to dress up. Nope, I have to stick with comfy shoes, so as you can imagine I like to get creative and wear all sorts of colorful sandals. Dresses and tops and skirts ditto. To avoid breaking out in sweat by wearing clingy clothes, I opt for easy breezy dresses to keep it fashionable and stay cool while I am at it...

Finding the perfect accommodation where I feel at right home is one of the most challenging tasks while traveling I think. Especially if you are away from home for months at the time. I always look for a place that has that homey feeling and that's what we found when we discovered The Aqua Octaviana Bali Villas. We have stayed here for more than two months and after that, we still never wanted to leave. So let me tell you about this gorgeous spot, and what made it so special to us...







Bali Travel Tip - Kanto Lampo Waterfall

May 10, 2017

Location: Bali - Indonesia

 Kanto Lampo waterfall, Bali, Indonesia
When in Bali, chasing a waterfall just has to be on top of your bucket list.  Most waterfalls are tucked away on the north side of the island. It takes almost half a day to get there by car. So when you only have a few days in Bali and don't have the time to travel al the way up to the north side, you have the option to visit the Kanto Lampo waterfall. Kanto Lampo is a new hidden treasure in Bali. It's located in the Gianyar region, not too far away from Ubud and about just one hour away from Kuta and Seminyak.  A new waterfall you might think? Yep, this spectacular piece of nature just popped out the ground less than a year ago, so let me tell you about it.

Happy Thursday my friends

Welcome to my favorite villa in Bali. As you might know from my previous posts we've spent some time in east Bali and loved it.  I am quite obsessed with finding true gems when it comes to where we're staying while traveling.

Emiel always lets me pick the hotel and I can spend hours online searching for the perfect spots.  I guess I have become quite a pro at this, because he always loves my picks. The same goes when we stayed in Amed and spent a few incredible days and never wanted to leave!

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

April 13, 2017

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?

 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..

Winter is still with us and I consider myself lucky to be able to walk around barefoot and wearing nothing more than a high-low T-shirt dress.

How To Wear The Floral Trend The Cool Way

The floral trend remains and it's here to stay!


Not everyone will reach for a floral peace when it comes to dressing, mainly because it hits the dreamy and "girly girl" department. 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...
