Morning dip in Ubud

· Fashion

As promised, here are a few swimming suit pictures taken in Ubud. Forgive my laziness but during my stay in Bali, I only photoshot one of the swimsuits shown earlier.

I might have another opportunity to wear them this summer… depending on a sudden desire of seaside and if the weather allows it.

Meanwhile, here is a one piece Breton stripes swimsuit, which can be used as bathing suit or as striped bodysuit.

Have a good week and let’s talk soon about the rest of my trip !

PS : The contest to win a rattan bag from Bali with surprises is still on-going here on the blog: you have until this Wednesday to enter the contest! (English translation by Quiterie)

Bags from Bali & Giveaway

· Fashion

Before telling you all about my trip to Bali, I start showing you the things I brought back. You’ve already seen in my last post my small round rattan purse, which can actually be seen pretty much everywhere on Instagram.

Not very original as we can order it from Easy or other websites but I was pretty happy to get it from the source, in another words from Bali Ubud market!

It also means that I was able to buy all these small bags at very reasonable prices (bargaining is key in Bali = I will explain more in details later to give you tips for Balinese negotiations). Basket or small rattan bags are THE gifts to bring back to your friends/or yourself, which as you can see I did even thought I had to limit myself as we were a bit short in terms of space with our suitcases.

 

Win a round rattan bag from Bali (filled up with surprises)

I wanted to also buy a small bag for you, to thank you all for still being here after 10 long years, and still reading my blog.

Well, the cost value isn’t really significant I know but I thought it would be a more personal way to give you a chance to win a gift chosen by myself from A to Z.

THE PRIZE : this round rattan bag (same as I’m wearing here) coming from Ubud market, filled with surprises (yummy or not) that I gathered during my last trips (I actually haven’t finished filling it up yet hehe). I will also add a short note/signed drawing.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE : Write a comment below by July Wednesday 12th midnight.

I will then pick up the winner who will be able to catch my attention thanks to humour, creativity and motivation to win this prize. In a nutshell, you are free to write whatever you want. After 10 years, you should know me enough to write something, no?

Good luck and I hope you will enjoy this ‘handwork’ contest (in all the means). Have a great weekend ! (English translation by Quiterie)

Exotic teatime

· Fashion, Travel

I just came back from my holidays in Bali where I was able to enjoy complete disconnected moments.. which hadn’t happened to me for a very long time!

 

Back from Bali, the island of gods

I was able to experiment a few days without touching my phone or even my camera and it really felt good to live in the 80s-90s again, without reporting to anyone or without having any distraction other than living the moment (even though the Internet might be very useful to find your way: we got lost multiple times).

Anyhow, I was able to take pictures during the other days and I think I will be able to tell you all about my trip very soon with visit advices and yummy addresses (we never change our inner self!).

 

Refreshing Afternoon tea

So here are a few snapshots at the hotel where we stayed in Ubud. Vegetal decor and savage ambiance for a nice and exotic teatime (but beware the mosquitos!). (English translation by Quiterie)

Summer co-ord

· Fashion

This year I’ve been trying to find jumpsuit or confortable dungarees. The kind of clothes I love wearing during summer time because it’s easy to put on and I don’t need to think about matching top and bottom, it’s all in one block.

This being said, I also love full co-ord sets… which are as easy to wear as jumpsuit but offer the advantage to be mismatched.

You already saw these pants here, and today here is the full set. This top will be also well matched with high-waisted pants : combinations are unlimited ! (English translation by Quiterie)
