Morning Calm

A homemade life Bali Morning Calm

Last week I arrived for the very first time in Bali. I know it’s a terrible cliche but this little island has been on my travel list ever since reading Eat, Pray, Love. I am so happy to finally be here and I’m enjoying every single thing this island has to offer. Highlights so far? Snorkeling in Gili Air (and seeing a turtle for the very first time!), sunsets, having dinner on the beach, spotting dolphins during a boat ride from Gili Air to Bali, and lots more! Have a lovely Friday!

Weekend Reading

A homemade life Weekend Reading June

  • Marie Kondo’s Life Changing Magic Of Tidying Up is still on my reading list but I think these three tips on achieving your minimalist, organized home fantasy will do for now. I always want my home to be a place where I can unwind and feel comfy. I know that can be challenging at times with a demanding job but I try anyway and I am convinced these tips will help me get there!
  • 20 places to travel in your 20s that aren’t cliches (Unfortunately I have only been to one of these places so I need to book some flights very soon..)
  • I’ve been spending a lot time day dreaming about traveling – especially when I feel stressed and tired. I’ve been traveling by myself quite a few times – to Capri, New York and Copenhagen – and I always feel safe. But still, I am always happy to read more safety tips for the solo traveler.
  • And since we’re on topic.. I always travel to relax and escape from the pressures and stress of daily life (do not get me wrong, I am very happy with the way things are going in my life but it can be quite stressful sometimes), but the lead-up to a vacation is, in my case, often the most stressful part. That’s way I am so happy when I came across this pre-vacation checklist!
  • I am a list maker, always have been, always will be. In my opinion it’s a perfect way to prioritize things and to keep organized. So imagine my surprise when I came across this blog that wrote about a Business Insider story that claims most rich people make ‘to don’t’ lists. Read here why this might be more effective than all my little to do lists.
  • The Oscars. I loved this chic Chanel dress on Julianne Moore, this Versace gown worn by Jennifer Garner and how adorable is little Jacob Tremblay in his Armani suit?
  • Wedding photographers capture memories that will probably last a lifetime: from a father who walks down his daughter to the aisle to a couple’s first kiss as newlyweds. But I think it’s the stories behind these photographs that can transform a lovely photo into something a lot more special. To celebrate this beauty, Harper’s Bazaar shares the most memorable moments captured by photographers and all the stories that made each photo so powerful.
