This is probably the most important segment to read of our whole trip if you are planning on visiting this area of Bali. We pondered back and forth on visiting the Gili islands, or Nusa Penida, but ultimately decided we didn’t have time for the Gili islands. The are a little farther away, and an overnight would be required. So let’s dive right into this crazy place called NUSA PENIDA!!
I decided this hotel deserves a post all of it’s own!! Why? Because choosing a place to stay half way around the world is hard, and we struck gold with this one. There are so many adorable places to stay in Bali, and also very ritzy places that you can stay for a bargain. There are bamboo huts, and tree houses, just so many choices! I knew for at least one of our. stays I would want something that felt like true Bali, with the amenities of being at a resort. Lacabane is just that, and more!!!
First off let me help you out, it’s pronounced CHANG-Goo. Yeah I was stumped on that one too and looked like a fool trying to talk to my friends who had been there before about the towns I wanted to visit, so I’m helping you out!! And let me just tell you, YOU WANT TO VISIT HERE!!!! Actually I could of spent 2 weeks in this area and just barely scratched the surface. This is the Bali hot spot. This is where all the hipsters hang! Cute coffee shops, specialty açaí bowls, creatively decorated ice cream cones, and countless insta worthy spots. Most of the pictures you see online happen in this area!!!
Venture just 45 minutes west of Nusa Dua (45 minutes south of Denspar) and you will be in Uluwatu. Sooo many heart eyes for this area. Again, super private beaches for a quite and relaxing time. But this area also has some of the best surfing and secret beaches.
The bottom little section of Bali I would describe as the relaxing beachy area. The east side is called Nusa Dua, and this is where most of the more common hotel chains are. As tired, jet lagged, already culture shocked Americans, this was the perfect place to start.
I started dabbling in the instagram world back in 2012. Back when I thought it was just a way to edit photos. A lot of you have heard the story, so I won’t re tell it, but it started as a way to be creative in my wardrobe. Over the course of the last 7 years I have been all over the place, from fashion to beauty, to lifestyle, travel and home. And to my surprise a lot of you stuck with me on my journey to figure out my space in the digital world. No, this is not a post to say I’ve finally figured it out (will we ever really know??) But it is to say that after all this time I finally landed my dream gig!!! Styling others!!!
Holidays come around so quick. I mean honestly it’s like there is something every other month. I just can never seem to get on top of things. Thank goodness for local boutiques and amazon prime! I’ve compiled a list of the goodies I snagged for this upcoming long weekend.
Each season I tend to have a running list of things I’m on the hunt for. Things that will make up a capsule wardrobe for that season. Items I will literally wear on repeat. For the first time in a long time, I got my stuff together so that I could share my list with all of you!! Below are my summer must have pieces, with both high and low options.
We took the quick 2 hour flight to Hong Kong and you would of thought we arrived in a whole new world. We went from cold and gloomy, to warm, sunny, and tropical. The locals were prepared. They dressed so cute and stylish on the plane. Girls in mini skirts and sweaters with their hair in clips. Spring colored designer bags. Boys in linen jackets. I’m telling you, the couture was off the chain.
More specifically Shanghai, China. By now you should all know that my love for travel runs deep. I’m an, up for anything type of girl. So when I found out our flight had a few layovers in China I was immediately stoked.
Traveling the world doesn’t have to just be for the super wealthy. I will help you map out trips you never thought you could afford!!
Treat yourself with these last minute steals. 2 day shipping has your back, making you look like you had a plan from the start.
Is Iceland even on your traveling radar?! I naively had dreams of a day at the Blue Lagoon, but not much beyond that. I had a picture of the milky blue waters pinned on my dream board, and I told myself, someday I would go. Much to my surprise, after booking plane tickets and committing to a week away in Iceland, I discovered the Blue Lagoon, though extremely beautiful, was not even close to the most magnificent thing my eyes would see in this country. While it's all still fresh in my head I'm going to recap our trip, and map out what I WOULD of done, knowing what I know now.
