Beautiful Jewels

Hi guys

Apologies for being so long between posts…it has been a crazy dash to December.

I just wanted to share with you today the beautiful Ananda Soul they make the amazing beautiful jewellery that has a philanthropic aspect to their business. This ensures products are ethically made and  in ensuring that people are paid fairly for their services. The part I particularly love is the company supports women and children in the areas where their products are made. Currently this includes employing mothers of street children in Bali so that their children get to go to school and the cycle of poverty can be broken. What a great idea!!!

Apart from their great message their jewellery is amazing. I have picked up a few pieces myself and I continue to be on the lookout for other great pieces.

Here are some great pieces to go check out.

This one is next on my list…this is a gorgeous gold cuff

Lookbook Henri Bendel

Hi Guys,

I’m back with some more shots of my stunning Henri Bendel Modern Icon Top Handle Satchel.

I have been thoroughly enjoying wearing this bag and going around town with it. Also, worth noting my next video will be a What’s In My Bag featuring this beauty so there will be some more lookbook shots from that.

Enjoy the looks…

Welcome one and all

Hi All

For those that were followers from my previous blog feathermesilly this is a reincarnation of that blog. Obviously I will still talk about my love for fashion and handbags. What type of blog would it be if I didn’t do that!

Aside from that there have been a few life changes that have occurred for me. This included hubby leaving job and getting a new job based in Bali. Also, me deciding to leave my job to join hubby in Bali which is where I will be based with a few trips back home 🙂

We have uprooted our life from the fast pace of Melbourne to the much slower pace but sunnier Bali. I have to say this has already come with challenges for me particularly who is used to knowing the ins and outs of Melbourne and who is getting to know new customs and ways of doing things. For example, if you are a Melbournian coffee drinking lover like me it is a MUST to ask for an extra shot in your beverage of choice or you will be left a little heartbroken.

I have left my full time job back home which is what I wanted and have taken this as a sign that I should dedicate my time to the blogging world and my youtube channel. I’m hoping the time I have now will allow for me to mix both written and video content regularly to get a glimpse into the new adventure I am just starting.

This will be a blog about the lifestyle change in Bali as well as where to go in Bali as I experience those things too. As I said earlier there will be a lot of fashion content including lookbooks for what to wear on a daily basis when you live on a tropical island. I will also do the best makeup for the warm weather of Bali, as my full coverage Giorgio Armani Power Fabric foundation is not going to handle this humidity. Best leave that at home.

Please follow this blog and if you want to know something specific about my time here feel free to email me at theexpatbali@gmail.com

In the meantime in order for you to catch up on my arrival in Bali please checkout this short video.
