Have you ever traveled to Bali? If not, this tropical island is a must for your Bucket list. I know I might be a little bias …. but Bali really does have a holiday for everyone! Love Nature? Head straight to the mountains or the National Park in Bali’s North West. Love Beaches, I don’t even know where to start! Food more your thing? Head straight to Canggu, do not pass go… and then after a few days of indulging on all delicious foody offerings here, head up to Ubud to really get your health fix! Love to shop? Again, Canggu is your answer my friends! Love adventure? There's downhill Mountain biking, Island hopping, Surfing, Zip-lining, Diving, Cliff Jumping… the list goes on. Ready to book your flights? Great because we’re here to sort you out with finding somewhere rad to stay!
I may live here but boy do I love a good Air bnb trawl (Both in Bali and around the globe!) to search out some amazing accommodation options. (Trust me, even if you’re not planning on a holiday, a good session on Air bnb and you’ll feel like you’ve been to the tropics and back all while sitting at your desk! )
Canggu is currently one of the coolest and most attractive places to visit in Bali. Amongst the plethora of cafes serving up 5 star food there is an abundance of shops, weekend markets, a few working rice paddies mixed up in between the buildings, too many bars to name and a long list of Day Spa’s to get your pampering fix. Oh, and then there’s the beach & the surf – from which the Canggu culture and community is based upon. In amongst the all night parties, growing beach club scene and street side skate bowls, somehow this place still retains the beautiful undertone of the Balinese culture and calmness offering Canggu one of the most unique atmospheres on the island. And this my friends is why I want to share with you a selection of 5 amazing place to stay in Canggu. But be warned…. you may fall in love…x

Now that we’ve got you all in the mood of heading to Bali and booking a lush cushy villa for a week, it’s time to flip that idea on the head and introduce to you…The Bubble Hotel! When I first saw this concept I couldn’t quite believe or understand what was going on… When I went and stayed in it? It was well, exactly what you think – A Human sized bubble ready for a luxe glamping experience! Historically I’m not huge into camping but spending the night under the stars in the mild Bali air, just meters from one of the most amazing beaches I have ever been to was simply incredible. Located on a private beach (The secure location will be sent to you upon booking your experience here) and with only a handful of Bubbles located here, your worries of the world will seem impossibly far away as soon as you arrive. The base rate is your Bubble accommodation only and there are 101 extras that you can add on top once you book (Fairy Lights? Curtains? Food? Drink? Massage? Security Guard? They got you!)
Take this opportunity to escape the bustling streets and busy traffic to stay in this beautifully simplistic Bubble Hotel. It is an absolutely magic experience to watch the sunset over the ocean from your private beach and wake up to the crashing waves and watch the pastel coloured morning skies rise from the comfort of your warm and cozy bed. I couldn’t recommend a night in the Bubble Hotel more if I tried.
P.S. This one is actually located on the Bukit near Ulluwatu…. Around 1.5hours drive from Canggu, sorry but I had to include it!
Price: $88 USD / night
Capacity: 2 people

Meet our Pal St. Gerard, the patron of expectant mothers! Mr Gerard was born in Italy and lived a short but meaningful life. His prayers today are sought for the children, unborn children, women in childbirth, mothers, expectant mothers & motherhood, hallelujah ladies! (It also helps that this little guy is extremely good looking in all it's round form!)
St Gerard was said to be responsible for a number of miracles throughout his life but his legend lives on for one particular miracle that relates to a woman in labor (Let's be honest... we're all hoping for miracles at that time!)

It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm

Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
