4 Best Things To Do in Bali

Bali is an exotic destination and has always been on my list. it’s quite the long trip but completely worth it. My personal journey took over 38 hours from door to door to get to Ubud, but I couldn’t be happier. The weather is amazing, the food is even better, and the people are super friendly, and above the expenses are pretty low compared to other tropical destinations. Saving some money has always been a passion of mine. For my trip, I´ve packed some of my favorite shots including Independent leader’s latest swimwear collection. I picked the Estavao floral swim shorts and the color blocking Marco, which is a new favorite. I have been exploring this beautiful country for the past few days and I have fallen in love with it. Here are my top 4 places to visit to get the best Instagram picture. Tegallalang Rice Terraces Ubud is famous for its scenic expanses of rice fields.

CARNAVAL READY

Carnaval is right around the corner and you can feel it in the air, that positive and fun energy which is pretty contagious. I always watched the parades on the sidelines, and each year I kept telling myself that the following year I am going to participate. So far, after 10 years, I only did a Fakkel, halfway.. Yeah… I know, shame on me, but what seems to be just a big party is actually a lot of work and preparation for people that love Carnaval and participate, those that are carrying this tradition that has years and years bringing joy and pride to the island of Aruba. I went to the Penha store located at Plaza Daniel Leo and sat down with one of their makeup artist, George Bislip, to discuss and play around with products from Urban Decay. We had an orange and yellow headpiece from a previous season to get inspired. The process took about an hour and, the outcome was well worth it. I wanted something festive and vivid yet masculine.

PUNTA MITA | ST. REGIS PUNTA MITA

I had the opportunity to join the VII Punta Mita Gourmet & Golf Classic last month through the St Regis Punta Mita, in the Pacific coast of Mexico. I have a soft spot for Mexico, specifically their cuisine, which is possibly my favorite. So when I received the invitation to this event I wanted to cry of happiness. This year I have been channeling my inner Arnold Palmer, by golfing not once, not twice, but three times this year. Also in attendance Lorena Ochoa, a top-ranked female golfer in the world, who I had the privilege to meet during my trip! Punta Mita is an ultra-luxurious resort and residential area located on a private peninsula 45 min far from Puerto Vallarta, surrounded by white sand beaches of the Pacific Ocean.
