Stenciled concrete

So we have a "guest house" which really is just a shed where all our surfboards live, and our bikes, and our power tools, kites, etc.etc. you get the drift.
The floor is grey concrete and it looks so ugly and for years I've wanted to do something with it. 
So this year I did.
Stencils.
So much fun!

Musings

Remember those vintage 501's,
they were about the coolest jeans we could wear back in the 80's.
The people behind we are 365 have managed to make them look cool again!

 After being too many years in London I can now not have a cup of tea without the company of biscuits.
So the dried, stale, taste like paper biscuits from the local shop now tastes like heaven,
it's an ugly habit and I really should rid myself of it!

Free lodgers

So, we have birds living in our roof.
Little lodgers, they chirp away waking us up every morning and every once in a while they leave us some feathers...

 Princess is constantly trying to hunt them down but to no avail.
They love teasing her.
Right now we have a bird family living in our kitchen roof, one in our lounge roof and one in our bedroom roof. 
Who would've thought..

Going back in time

To a beautiful day here in Paradise where I convinced mum and dad to have a mud wrap with me.
Hope you are enjoying your summer back home!

Flash Tattoo

 Here is something that really caught my eye.
 There is this company in the States that does temporary jewellery tattoo's that would be perfect on suntanned skin.
 Said to last 4-6 days depending on how you look after it.
Perfect for the beach, non? 
Check out http://www.flashtat.com/ for more information.
All images are taken from their site. 
I want!

Reef walking

 This is where the action is.
Every day.
From sun-up until sun-down.

Tirelessly searching for the perfect wave.
The perfect drop.
The perfect tube.
The waves becomes the mistress.Inexplicably drawn to it.
The calling
never stops...
once a surfer,
always a surfer.

want/want/want dress crush

So I've very recently "discovered" this uber cool brand from Australia called spelldesigns.
They have the most incredible summer dresses.

 I have totally fallen in love with this little white number, would be perfect for down here. Both of these pictures are taken from their Pintrest account. Check it out for more inspirational pieces.
This last picture was taken this morning on my little reef walk.
The waves are up, the off-shore's are strong and the half naked surfers are grinning from ear to ear.

Sunset-mania

Crammed in amongst sweaty bean bags in Bali,

or fighting for space with the hermit crabs on a pretty deserted beach?

The strangest satisfaction

So you all know my love for making lists,
the best thing is when I get to cross out and have done everything on my to-do lists.
Gives me the weirdest feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment.
Ha, take that you list you!

I am on my way back to our tropical island and had a great shopping break in Bali, (where I got to complete my food shopping list). The posts from here on in will be unfortunately sporadic depending on whether the internet is working or not.

Addicted to lists

So after two months out on the rock, I am finally back in Bali.
Normally a tourist destination for me it is a full on mission.
I have lists for just about everything I need if I don't write down what I need I end up getting so severely sidetracked that I'll end up with stuff that is completely off the wall.

Mirror mirror on the wall

A little peak into our tropical lounge room.
Not a whole lot of walls in this house, just bamboo half walls and bamboo blinds to block out the sun.
Makes for light, easy, breezy tropical living.
