A few of you asked for close ups of this @cafeorganicbali bowl, so here is the nutritious Bondi bowl with tropical fruits like coconut, banana, blueberry, and mango from their organic farm. While I was initially really sad by how small my smoothie bowl was I was delighted to find the coconut meat was still in the shell-turned-bowl. I literally ate every last bite! 🥥
The garden gangstas at @cafeorganicbali are fully on board with the life motto, no bad days. The 100% vegan menu not only has some of the best smoothie bowls in Bali but also boasts incredible ambiance through beachy decor and uplifting messages. #smoothiebowl
I’m attending a 2-day silence retreat today and tomorrow at Wat Suan Dok in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I hope to learn more about Buddhism and improve my meditation class while fully embracing this cultural experience. If you’re wondering what a silence retreat is like leave questions below in the comments and I’ll answer them all when I’m back in about 36 hours!
Delicious sherbet sunset vistas from @alilaseminyak. Alila means surprise in Sanskrit–I was certainly astonished to learn that Alila Seminyak was the first resort in Indonesia to pass the stringent EarthCheck eco test which rewarded the property with the Bronze status!
This is the face of Bali bliss after the invigorating Mineral Ritual at @AlilaSeminyak. True to the ethos of naturally from the heart all of the products used at Spa Alila are handmade with 100% natural fresh local ingredients. The three-hour Mineral Ritual included an acupressure reflexology treatment, therapeutic massage, Vichy shower, detoxifying volcanic clay facial, and this vitality silk bath. #sponsored #alilahotels
The Mineral Ritual spa package at @AlilaSeminyak includes a healthy two-course lunch at the properties ocean-front restaurant, Seasalt. The menu included a variety of holistic dishes with a Japanese flair. I was treated to small sweets and fresh berry juice, the Kyoto Hummus consisting of edamame and avocado, a dish of crispy oyster and shiitake mushrooms, and a succulent red snapper dressed with black miso and olives. The beautiful plating almost upstaged the incredible flavor of my meal. I hydrated with coconut water spiked with mint and devoured a decadent passion fruit dessert. #hosted #dametravelereats #alilahotels
I start every morning with a prayer to Ganesha but the prettiest place I’ve ever done so has to be facing the ocean at the @alilaseminyak Hindu temple in Bali. I even keep a tiny Ganesha figure that was given to me in Rajasthan in my bag at all times. Take a second to meditate on Ganesha today to maintain a life without obstacles, or the perseverance to overcome them. Did you know today is the @unesco exchange of cultural heritage day? How has travel changed your own culture and vantage of the world? Mine transforms daily.
Where are all my nature children at? I want to know what you’re doing to honor Mother Earth today! Tell me in the comments. 🙋🏽♀️ I just got back from an overnight trek with an eco-tourism company around Thailand’s tallest mountain with @laughtraveleat and @venturewithimpact. ♻️ When I’m not trekking I love to stay in gorgeous ecoresorts like @alilaseminyak! Have you read my write up on the @alilahotels sustainability programs on @missfilatelista? #earthday #sponsored
Take a moment today to soak up the divine energy of Mother Nature, then do your part to heal her by cutting single-use plastic out of your life and picking up all the trash you see today! All of it, ya heard? #natureschild #happyearthday #earthday
