Ever since launching La Luna Rose 3 years ago I have been working on a way in which we can support the community that we work in and give back to our environment. To date we have supported Not for profits such as R U OK DAY and Bali Wise which run close to our heart however we were also interested in making more of a commitment. After watching the incredible Documentary ‘PLASTIC OCEANS’ and living on the island of Bali that references this documentary so much, we knew we wanted to lock hands with a strong environmental group. That’s when we learnt about 1% For the Planet.
We caught up with Rach, one of our favourite tropical beach babes across the globe in Miami. We chatted all things sunshine, travel, adventure what a day in the life of a blogger looks like and of course, her hot spots and must visits around Miami and the Southern Florida area.

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.

Alyssa from AKR Photography reached out to us on social media a while back, sharing her love for the tropical lifestyle and our Summer-infused jewels. A quick flick through her social media page(s) and we were hooked. This girl may only be 19 years of age but she sure knows how to take a photo. She has created a beautiful style of her own that is constantly capturing and showcasing a unique view of her Hawaii through her lens. Lucky for us Hawaii lovers!
We took 5 and caught up with Alyssa on all things Hawaiian, adventure and of course - her passion for photography.
Hawaii has been on my travel hot list for a while now. And while I patiently wait until the time is right to pop my Hawaiian cherry, there's no stopping me researching what my upcoming holiday on the islands might look like. Local Hawaiian babe Casey Evansrecently got the pallet warmed up and excitement flowing for a visit to Oahu. It was after chatting with her that the REAL research began. Here I share with you 4 unique experiences that I have penciled in for my trip to Hawaii, discovered over on my favourite Air Bnb!
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!
We're all about hooking you up with ideas and inspiration for an epic holiday getaway and local North Shore Hawaiian beauty Casey Evans is here to let you in on her island hot spots - Yuss!
For me, just the word Hawaii is a huge weak spot. Although I am yet to travel to this island paradise, in my mind, 10 years from now I will be curled up in a rad little beach shack that has epic views our over the ocean, our vege patch growing on steroids from the lush humid weather and the beautiful crystal clear warm ocean just across the road.... To me, Hawaii seems like the perfect mash of NZ and Bali, my 2 'homes'. (Did I mention I have yet to visit this 'Hawaii'? I'm not even sure if these paradise's exist!?) Anyway when we recently connected with beach beauty Casey Evans, she kind confirmed everything I have pictured in my dreams. And, well, she's living it! Grab a coconut / Cuppa Tea & dive in (Warning, may provoke Holiday planning... just sayin')

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 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
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.
