Because if you don’t know and havn’t had the joy to experience (yet), Bali, is an absolute paradise for food lovers. There are so many places to discover that I think even a lifetime of eating out won’t be enough to try all these delicious restaurants and cafes. But that’s ok. I have accepted the challenge and love sharing my Bali discoveries with you to enjoy on your next island vacay.
Today, let’s introduce you one of my long time favorite cafés in Canggu; Cinta Café.

It's fair to say that since moving to Bali, this 'Poke' concept has played a large part in my life. With all the fresh vegetables (and fish) available here on the island, it's also fair to say that some of the best Poke I have ever had is here in Bali! Being a vegetarian is no issue, with many a Poke places serving up Veggie style Poke bowls that leave even the tuna-consumer asking to try! Here are my 3 favourite places in Bali to get my Poke fix.... I wouldn't plan a trip to the island without stopping at one of these!
We're back at it. Serving up the Best Eats on the island of Bali for you. This week we talk through Milu by Nook....
Positioned on what is quickly becoming one of Canggu's busiest streets, once you step through the front door and into Milu, all the stress of Bali's busy and frantic stress is instantly put aside. Since it opened it's doors almost 12 months ago, Milu restaurant has been on high rotation on my weekly cafe eats.
The best beaches in Bali
The beautiful island of Bali is a haven of coastline. Ranging from deep dark black sand that will burn the bottoms of your feet off to the stunning white sand beaches of the South. Whatever your flavor of sand & salt combination , we’re pretty sure Bali has their version of it. Read on for our favourite of the 100’s of beaches here on Bali.
Less of a ‘Best Eats’ and more of a ‘Best eats with a vibe’, the renowned old mans bar/restaurant in Canggu has become a locals savior over the past couple of years.If you're visiting Canggu or staying in the area for a couple of nights, a drink (or 3) at Old Man's is a must.
Serving up the best smoothie bowls on the island of Bali, find out more about our favourite Nalu bowls and where to get your Smoothie bowl fix on your next visit to the island! Trust me, it's worth it.
On holiday from Melbourne but still can’t quite kick your craving for a perfectly poured mid-morning Latte? I feel you.
And this is where I can confidently say – we’ve got your back! Introducing to you, the Bali institution and world-class-coffee offerings of Revolver Café. Conveniently located in the heart of Jl. Laksma a.k.a the main strip of Seminyak, this tiny door located down a back alley can be a bit of a trick to find. (Look for the tiny Black ‘REVOLVER’ sign about 20 metres down an alleyway, on the left as you head to the beach and opposite Seminyak Square). But once you’re there, you will be glad you made the mission – sweat, tears and all!
Whether you are preparing for your first trip to Bali or consider yourself a seasoned traveler, packing for a trip to the tropics can feel like a pretty fun-sponge activity. From the "Say what, I'll be wearing a bikini in 48 hours?!" overwhelming realisation to the "I'm pretty sure I'll need 2 pairs of jeans" thoughts....we hear you. Every day leading up to your holiday should bring excitement and eager anticipation, not stress and 'WTF do I pack-do-I-even-own-an-appropriate-bikini thoughts!
We're at it again. Scoping out those 'Must Eat' places on this beautiful island of Bali! Today we're introducing you to Crate Cafe - If you havn't already seen it online already that is....
I'm constantly asked by my pals where they should stay and what that should do on their visit to Bali. And while that guide would take a few days (or weeks!) to write, I'm starting with here with my personal top 5 places to stay on the Bukit Penninsula - one of my absolute favourite areas of Bali.
Behind the Scenes Part 2, let's get stuck in.
We’ve taken you through our jewellery design process in our ‘Behind The Scenes Part 1’ blog post we wrote a couple of months back (You can find this here to refresh your memory) and now it’s time to introduce you to the dirty work – quite literally! When the pretty designs are all signed off, this is where the real stuff starts happening…
With a menu that is entirely made form Organic locally sourced produce, a meal or two from Café Organic is guaranteed to get you back feeling Healthy and clean in no time at all!
Serving up the most outrageously epic looking food, Café Organic is definitely one of the most 'instagrammed' cafes roaming Bali. If you’ve seen a fancy fruit salad served up in a Pineapple with a dragon fruit smoothie next to it while perusing the ‘gram, there’s a high chance they were dining here!
So, I booked a flight back to my favourite island paradise this week and guess what the first thing that came into my head was? FOOD! That's right, as much as I love the beaches, catching up with my beautiful suppliers, driving my scooter through the rice paddies and watching the sunset with my best pal who lives up there...it is always the food that get's me. (Durrr, when doesn't food get me?!)
Having just launched our new ‘Las Palma’s’ collection - it’s really got us in a fruity mood! Smoothie bowls are something I have been eating since the day I arrived in Bali over 3 years ago. Now, back in the not-so-tropical land of Melbourne, It’s time to bring the smoothie bowls back into the kitchen! Here is my top 3 after trying many different combinations over the past few weeks. Enjoy!
Well, this is me, Rosie and the creator behind all this delicious jewellery. Something I have been really excited about with launching our blog is getting to share with you a real 'Behind-the-scenes' look at what we get up to on a daily basis and what goes into creating each & every beautiful La Luna Rose piece. Over the next few months I want to share with you the stories of our makers, our processes and how our designs come to fruition.
I first met Stu from BNVVT three and half years ago over a few Bintangs & a sunset down at our local Berawa beach in Bali. We instantly bonded over our shared experiences of moving to the island to design & launch e-commerce businesses.... and the ups & downs that this brought!
Our Bintang sessions quickly became a regular occurrence and the rest is history. Stu is one talented man who creates some beautiful leather products (that I only wish I could look as stylish pulling them off!) An avid believer in daily balance, we recently sat down with Stu to hear more about building his Leather Accessories empire on the island of Bali...
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.
La Luna Rose chain bracelets fit much like the beaded bracelets with an adjustable clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 15cm & 17.5cm
