If you follow me on Instagram it will have been impossible for you to miss my stay at 

Located in a secluded village in the heart of Bali, it aims to give an 'at home' feel in the villa 
(even though all the delicious meals are cooked for you along other usual hotel services). I'll 
do a much bigger post on it soon, but I just wanted to dwell on the most beautiful minimal 
interior it has. White washed doors, mirror and bed frames, large white walls inside a thatched 
roof and clear chairs. A real treat to my eye (and my lens). Enjoy.

Bali is as colourful and beautiful as I ever imagined.
Yes, the sea is that blue. Yes, the sky is that pink at sunset.
I hardly had to edit these images before uploading them here.

We've been exploring; in the past week Seminyak, Uluwatu and Nusa Dua have been our bases,
and tomorrow we're off again. A lot of sunning myself alongside a lot of jumping on the back
of a motorbike to find new places to sun myself, of course.

In two weeks we will finally reach our final destination: Sydney.
It's incomprehensible that the 'traveling' part of our journey is coming to an end as it was so
surreal that it even ever began. The time was slow at first, but the last month has rushed by and
all of a sudden we're boarding a flight to Bali, with a fourteen day countdown.

I'm quite looking forward to reaching a more permanent destination of sorts, as being on the move
for the past 11 weeks has been almost as tiring as it's been fun (I realise I'm delving into
massive #firstworldproblems here, but bare with me) as squeezing packing my belongings up
every 24 or 48 hours never gives you the chance to 'settle' like you normally can. Like when
you return from holiday and it's surprisingly enjoyable to get home, unpack and feel very
satisfied with yourself and able to get back to getting stuff 'done'. Like to-do lists, washing,
tidying, sorting...

Wait! Did I just admit I miss to do lists?

I guess I did. It's the small things that I miss, the small rituals. Small rituals of feeling at home,
or rather making yourself feel at home. I feel like I've been on the move so much recently I
haven't had the time to begin to feel at home, and if I do then I'm most likely leaving it the
 next day.

So I'm relishing the thought of dropping my bags and setting up camp somewhere.

But I'm also looking forward to the next two weeks in Bali, follow me on Instagram to keep
up to date.

Finally! An outfit! I stood against a wall and took a photo.
Incredible what you can do when you put your mind to it.

I feel like since I've been travelling there's been lots of beach/pool/touristy photos and I wanted to 
do a post (maybe even a couple) that are more 'blog' like to remind myself - and you, too - what 
this blog is about. Not that it's all just about outfits, but that they fit in here still, along with the 
travel documentation.

I bought this Play by Commes de Garcons t-shirt in Hong Kong. It was the perfect buy as I wanted
 a stripey top, and had always wanted a CDG tee. Only problem is is that it's rather thick 
for Vietnamese weather, so it's in the evening wear or -wait-till-I-get-to-Sydney pile.
