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

Calling all Pasta Lovers, Far & Wide! Centered in our favourite country of Italy, we have created this blog post not only as a little holliday escape around Italy but to help give you a deeper understanding of that carbo-heavy, winter-loving Pasta obsession that I know you all have.
Have you ever wondered where (and why?) those delicious Pasta dumplings served in juicy sauce come from exactly? How bout Spaghetti, is it the long-lost cousin of fettuccine or were they born at the same time in different areas? And delicious potato pasta balls (aka Gnocchi) ummm, HELLO, where on earth did YOU come from!?
Let’s be real here…. A good looking platter is not only the perfect piece of Pintrest Porn but a delicious piece of real life edible art – and who’s complaining about that!? Aperitivo hour – the two hours around sunset time – may just be my favourite time of the day due to the snacks & platters that manifest and appear across the globe at this time. We took to pinterest to scope out some killer platters that we can't wait to replicate... Read on for more inspiration.
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 15" (Petites & almost a Choker length) to 23". Our 15", 16" and 18" length necklaces all come in our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain which is slightly heavier in weight. All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all necklaces are adjustable by 1"/2.5cm in length. Below is a diagram of how our chain lengths sit on a body. If you have a large breast area, you may find that the 23" length chain sits in between your boobs...a good thing or bad, I'm not sure, that's up to you!
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
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 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
