With a menu that is entirely made form Organic locally sourced produce, a meal or two from Café Organic is guaranteed to get you back feeling Healthy and clean in no time at all!
Serving up the most outrageously epic looking food, Café Organic is definitely one of the most 'instagrammed' cafes roaming Bali. If you’ve seen a fancy fruit salad served up in a Pineapple with a dragon fruit smoothie next to it while perusing the ‘gram, there’s a high chance they were dining here!
YEW! Have you seen the latest collab? We’re so excited to launch these beauties, not only are they practical but extremely good looking! Havn’’t seen them? Click HEREto check out the full collection and below, we’ll chat a few things Gemma!
With Mother’s Day just around the corner for our Australian and US pals, we have wrapped up our top 7 gift ideas to spoil the ladies in your life this year… (Best thing about this list – they all ship internationally!)
Wait, I'm pretty sure Summer on really just got into 3rd gear and now it's day-light saving already!? Yeah, the pain is real and the weather don't lie. Autumn is settling in hear in the Southern Hemisphere and I don't know about you....but I am frantically trawling expedia for flights to some place warm and getting inspiration for rad as places to stay on Airbnb.
The pain is made slightly worse as some very good pals are currently honeymooning their way across the Yucatan Penninsula in Mexico. Their sweaty bods lounging around poolside with cocktails in hand and epic beach views in the background is not doing me any favours for getting work done. Instead, I am busy manifesting how I can make our next photoshoot in Mexico happen! And, while I was at it, I came across these super dreamy beach-side Airbnb hotspots (after all, we have to sleep somewhere beautiful to get the shoot done right!)
Dream away with me & pretend you're booking a night or two here....which place would you pick?
I think it’s pretty obvious that I am partial to a little sunshine, long beach days & balmy ocean waters. I often find myself deep in a myriad of online travel blogs looking for the next tropical destination to discover. What I had missed in all this research was one of the best gems in my very own current backyard – Magnetic Island!
While I have spent my fair share of time in the Whitsunday islands, Magnetic Island had never been highly discussed as a must visit location. Not to worry, as on a recent work trip to Townsville, it was only a hop skip & a 40 minute ferry ride away and I was on route to what would become, one of the most idyllic pieces of land I have ever discovered in all my tropical researching. (Huge call I know!)
So, I booked a flight back to my favourite island paradise this week and guess what the first thing that came into my head was? FOOD! That's right, as much as I love the beaches, catching up with my beautiful suppliers, driving my scooter through the rice paddies and watching the sunset with my best pal who lives up there...it is always the food that get's me. (Durrr, when doesn't food get me?!)
Our dream babe Marion from the beautiful blog Fringe & Frange sat down & let us into her wander-lusting life recently. Long story short, shes living the dream. From Paris to California she seems to balance a life and love of travel, fashion, design & love pretty perfectly. Grab an espresso & delve into her life for five.
It's Bananarama madness around here with the launch of our new tropical collection (Bananas ringsand all) so I thought I would share one of my favourite all-time naughty but healthy but a little naughty treat.
Current status - Melons on the mind thanks to our pretty cute new Watermelon charms we just launched. As well as looking damn cute around your neck, wrist and fingers, we thought we'd see what else Watermelons were good for. And, well, we discovered something pretty epic.
Our first photoshoot for our new Petitesrange of jewellery was something I was super excited about getting involved in, all I had to do was find a super cute little girl, a location, photographer and make sure we had all our samples right?! Kind of. That was until I realised how much little kids HATE staying still for longer than 3 seconds. Eek, aannndd our gorgeous model was not even 2.... Team that with some teeny tiny items of jewellery that require the most patience to shoot at the best of times and we were in for a challenge! I was lucky that our amazing photographer Olivia Martin-Mcguire was all over it, having 2 little girls herself and we managed to make some magic!
We discovered the beautiful Estonian dream-girl Katri a couple of years back where all great friends of this modern age are found, on instagram. Her life in squares looked pretty epic and one that aligns with the La Luna Rose girl perfectly. So, we started chatting and have been pen-pals ever since. Totes cute. Now, time to introduce you to this full-time traveling gypsy & find out how she manages a life of endless travel to beautiful tropical locations!
Having just launched our new ‘Las Palma’s’ collection - it’s really got us in a fruity mood! Smoothie bowls are something I have been eating since the day I arrived in Bali over 3 years ago. Now, back in the not-so-tropical land of Melbourne, It’s time to bring the smoothie bowls back into the kitchen! Here is my top 3 after trying many different combinations over the past few weeks. Enjoy!
And soon we will be able to share with you our brand new 'Las Palmas' collection perfect for the warmer weather ahead! Not from the Southern Hemisphere? Don't sweat, think of our new tropical collection as a slice of Summer to wear around your neck, wrist & fingers year round, stoked! Palm Tree's in NYC snow? Amazing.
Well, this is me, Rosie and the creator behind all this delicious jewellery. Something I have been really excited about with launching our blog is getting to share with you a real 'Behind-the-scenes' look at what we get up to on a daily basis and what goes into creating each & every beautiful La Luna Rose piece. Over the next few months I want to share with you the stories of our makers, our processes and how our designs come to fruition.
I first met Stu from BNVVT three and half years ago over a few Bintangs & a sunset down at our local Berawa beach in Bali. We instantly bonded over our shared experiences of moving to the island to design & launch e-commerce businesses.... and the ups & downs that this brought!
Our Bintang sessions quickly became a regular occurrence and the rest is history. Stu is one talented man who creates some beautiful leather products (that I only wish I could look as stylish pulling them off!) An avid believer in daily balance, we recently sat down with Stu to hear more about building his Leather Accessories empire on the island of Bali...
I'm not going to lie, as soon as Winter hits I turn on hibernation-mode and bake the house down. Today I came across this recipe here as I have an abundance of blueberries in the freezer at the moment. And whilst I do LOVE a good blueberry smoothie, these cookies were a sure fine way to use up some 'leftovers'! Best described as 'Crispy muffin tops', get prepared for your new favourite blueberry snack..., these guys are more-ish until the last bite!
We made it! After 2 months in the tropics, avoiding temperatures below 20 degrees, we are back in our Australian home town of Melbourne for the Finders Keepers Design Markets this weekend and couldn't be more excited!
