Bali, I love you already.

I could wake up to this every day.


Early morning flights are the perfect reason to demand a caffeine boost. This iced caramel macchiato was heaven-sent.

After a rather harrowing time trying to get a cab which wouldn't cheat us at the airport, we sped off toward our resort, which I discovered is really, REALLY secluded (and that isn't a bad thing at all, really).

First things first: a luxurious dip in our very own villa pool. Yes, completely stunned when I saw this! Could it be any more gorgeous?

Parodying Sir Stamford Raffles at our villa entrance.


Out and about after our swim + afternoon tea. I realise, though, that my havis aren't all that good for walking :( 

The seafood shops along Jimbaran beach all had huge piles of coconut husks outside. 

A really interesting home we spotted! Reminds me of the Smurfs somehow.

Oh and the waves at the beach here are pretty lethal! Very different from our wimpy waves back home. Was thinking of trying out surfing but we'll see :) 

We had plans to check out an open-air bar on a rocky outcropping nearby but decided to skip it in favour of: room service! Prawn linguine, roasted chicken leg and fried calamari - all yummilicious!

Ending this post with another random shot around the resort. Lovin' my cropped owl-pocket tee and denim shorts; they're the most comfy casual wear ever :) 

Peace out. Can't wait to see more of Bali tomorrow!

something about you


collared blue top: BKK
printed leggings: tracyeinny
blue satchel bag: lacepipe
black suede boots: lovelezle


Printed leggings are something I never thought I'd try, but they grow on you somehow.

I got these gorgeous ones from and wore them out for brunch with my old choir mates yesterday. Had a real fun time traipsing all around tanjong pagar and striking silly poses with graffiti (pics to come soon). Love my lazy Saturdays and friends who enjoy posing/photography as much as I do ;)

deja vu.

top and blazer: bugis street
bottoms: pearlavish
ring: online store
heels: c&k

 Wednesdays are always such a drag for me. Hence the super cheery outfit: pink, green, prints, you name it.

Feeling oddly odd tonight. Okay that didn't make sense did it. So glad the weekend is almost upon us! Can't wait to catch up with my old pals, and debut my printed leggings ;)

Softly, gently.

Felt like Batgirl again in this seagreen cotton rayon dress from hervelvetvase. Was perfect for a rainy day though. Happy I managed to get to the flea market to score some accessories too :)

Monday is upon us again; have a good one (somehow)!

tabula rasa

The only thing left to do, is live like you've never lived before.

dress: online store // bag: HK // ring: diva

Beginning afresh; it is something that's worth doing, worth risking. I'm really excited to start blogging here, and I hope it brings me fresh insights, new perspectives, and renewed joy.

Random date nights to gorgeous restaurants is definitely my favourite pastime. Took a little trip to Rochester Park last month for a quiet candlelit dinner at Graze. Their mixed grill was fantabulous - especially liked the baby potatoes, which were caramelised and oh-so-soft. Headed to Starbucks for some yummy dessert afterwards. And yes, the last picture is included because my arms look toned. Yey.
