Early in 2020, before the madness of COVID really kicked into 2nd gear, we were lucky enough to open our first retail store in the seaside village of Berawa, Canggu on our favourite island of Bali. Designed by the incredible Becks Harrop Design, and pieced together by a variety of talented humans, we couldn't be happier with how our first retail space has turned out!
The store stocks a collection of some of our favourite brands serving up the perfect 'Island Essentials' including beautiful dresses perfect for Sundowners, delicious smelling candles, quirky & fun prints for your walls, amazing pillows, beach throws, ceramics and obviously a fresh supply of jewellery to take home as your island keepsakes. Our product range is forever changing & growing as we source new, beautiful products for our customers.
The great thing about that? We have made our Island Store virtual, adding these precious pieces to our ever evolving online store too, over here.
For now, envisage yourself riding through the warm balmy air of Bali, on your scooter on the way home from the beach, ready for a delicious cold smoothie & salad for lunch across the road at Nude Cafe, before popping into our boutique for a spot of shopping.
While you may not be traveling to Bali in the immediate future, we thought you may want a sneak peak into what is waiting for you when you DO finally arrive...
If you're a travel-lover like us (dur - who isn't), then there's a high chance you are already following Brodie from @locationlost over on instagram where she shares her life on the road, living out of her **super stylin** van with her partner Nick & cute pooch Quinn. Based in Western Australia, Brodie & Nick share their incredible adventures, drool-worthy landscapes they get to experience in Aus and share honest conversations about a life lived on the road. It's not all cute shots (and cute outfits)!
Nothing quite beats a delicious Soba Noodle Salad. They're often rare to find out and about but when you find one, with the perfect dressing - Oooh wee it's a jolly good feeling, one you want to bottle up & come back to meal after meal. And so with the emphasis on food & sharing around Christmas, I wanted to do exactly that. Share one of my favourite Soba Noodle Salad recipes so that you too, can relish in these flavours & treat your tastebuds (and others!) this festive season.
Cabbage without Mayo. It's extremely hard to come by but when you find it, oooh weee life is good! If you're one of the 0.2% of the population who also hates Mayonnaise, welcome. If you're still a traditional slaw lover... Stick with me, this delicious, crunchy, fresh Cabbage Salad will have you second guessing how you'll next serve up your crunchy greens!
