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.
Let's be honest. Smoothie Bowls are basically dessert for breakfast.
And since our arrival back to the tropics last month, I have been absolutely loving making my morning Smoothie Bowl. Here in Bali we're pretty spoilt for fresh, delicious tropical fruit (Dragonfruit, Mango's, Papaya's, Pineapple and Bananas are on every street corner!) it's rude not to make the most out using them.
I'm not going to lie, if breakfast isn't a quick whip easy to make situation (ie Weetbix) I'm probably going to skip it. That's why I have been making a solid routine of hitting the local fruit markets on a Sunday morning and prepping the fruit in advance. With a big fat stash of frozen fruit in the freezer ready for a week-long of delicious and nutritious breakfasts, your smoothie bowls are only a blend away!

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!
The Tropical Traveler: Our ultimate guide on what to pack on your next tropical holiday
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!
Five years ago before I moved to the tropics for good (ish) I too was having one of those 'ARGH, 10 days in the tropics what the hell do I pack!?" kinda meltdowns. Living in a world where temperatures barely fall below 25 degrees and the sun shines 340 days a year can be a tricky one to navigate through the ol' 20kg limit of a suitcase when your everyday brain is still in four-seasons-a-day winter mode.
In this guide, we've put together our tropical traveling tips to make a good list to help you navigate what's getting into your suitcase straight away (hey, they may even fit in your hand luggage!) and what can stay at home and keep the dog company while you holiday. And because I am a supporter of anything and anyone heading off on an adventure, we've put together a Free downloadable packing list for you to help you on your way. Click here to download yours.
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?!)
Our first photoshoot for our new Petitesrange of jewellery was something I was super excited about getting involved in, all I had to do was find a super cute little girl, a location, photographer and make sure we had all our samples right?! Kind of. That was until I realised how much little kids HATE staying still for longer than 3 seconds. Eek, aannndd our gorgeous model was not even 2.... Team that with some teeny tiny items of jewellery that require the most patience to shoot at the best of times and we were in for a challenge! I was lucky that our amazing photographer Olivia Martin-Mcguire was all over it, having 2 little girls herself and we managed to make some magic!
|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 email@example.com 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
