Ready for summer ☀️
This weekend I invested in some new clothes, saved a bird, watched A Star Is Born (and cried my eyes out during), got a new book and tried 2 new restaurants 🤤. What are you doing this weekend?

Gangs all here 🙋 & baby makes 4!
I’ve gotten a lot of people asking what I’ve been doing and when I’ll be resurfacing on the internet 😂
Since moving to Sydney and submitting my partner visa paperwork, I’ve gotten a full time job as a travel agent, Michael and I have moved into a two bedroom sublet/dog sitting arrangement (which is why we have this little fluff ball all the time 🤩), and I’ve been settling in to this new phase in my life.
My brain has been stuffed full since starting my new job with sooo much info on travel agent things. I’ve learnt an insane amount of information super quickly, which is why I’ve been spending most of my time away from work relaxing, doing yoga, and reading fiction (I can’t fit any more info in my head, so no non-fiction 😂).
I am just now starting to feel comfortable enough to start thinking about writing and making videos again. For those of you who read my website and/or watch my videos - what kind of content do you want to see from me moving forward?

This place... The T-Rex cliff in Nusa Penida was one of the top reasons I wanted to visit Bali! 💛
Today I finally saw this mesmerizing, out of this world place and I am still in shock of this beauty! 😍🌴
We rented a scooter for a day in Nusa Penida, because we wanted to explore on our own. It was the craziest ride to get there, the rodes on this island are so bad, you need to be extra careful! But the end result is totally worth it! 🙊💛
How I feel about: 1. the weekend 2. finally having a little home space for some content creation⚡️
shoulder season swimming ✌🏻 // the Salento
off the beaten path in a small town, Rocca. In addition to being a popular cliff-jumping spot, the caves are an important archaeological site. Classical era dedications to a local god are written all over the inner walls in three languages. And they found enough stuff to conclude that people have known about this spot since the Bronze Age. .
all that, and you can still swim in it!
Glimmering darling 💙
I’ve debated posting this photo since I got home.
I like the idea of it very much but the body image conscious part of me is giving me a really hard time about it.
I don’t have a flat stomach when I sit down.
Partly because I have a c-section scar that was messed around with and didn’t heal too well.
Partly because I am now weight restored and I’m a normal woman with curves and folds where they should be.
I could’ve made it flat quite easily I guess, either by breathing in or with photoshop.
But what kind of impression does that give to other women out there? It would go against everything I’m trying to do here, everything my recovery is about and it would also validate my eating disorder’s belief that there’s something wrong with the way I look in this photo.
So..... fuck that basically!
I can’t promise it will remain here forever. My mind is a confusing place and my reasoning and thoughts change frequently. But for now, I’m not scared to be seen, this is me 🙌🏻

осталось совсем немного подождать.
есть вещи в жизни, в которых ты точно не можешь найти хорошее. как ни старайся.
но все проходит.
🇲🇲 Kakku 🇲🇲 .
The more than 2000 stupas at Kakku are one of the most remarkable sights in Shan State, Myanmar. Arranged in neat rows sprawling over the hillside, local legend has it that the stupa garden was founded by the Buddhist missionaries of the Indian emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BC .
Kakku is a site of religious devotion for Myanmar’s Pa-O's people, the second largest ethnic group in the Shan State.The Pa-O derive their name from the vernacular word Pa-U, which means being helped during birth, they believe they are descendants of a dragon and are called Taungthu by the Burmese, which means 'hill people' .
Ethnically and linguistically the Pa-O are of Tibeto-Burmese origin and thus related to the Karen people. While most of the Karen are either animists or Christians, the Pa-O have been a strong Buddhist group for many centuries.

El Castillo de Chapultepec en el DF es hermoso! Es el único palacio real en América. Fue la residencia del Emperador Maximiliano I de México durante la intervención francesa. Napoleón III quería contar con una monarquía amiga en las Américas. Pero el reinado le duró poco a Maximiliano.. después de 4 años de haber llegado de Europa, lo ejecutó Benito Juárez 🤷🏻♀️ y chao la monarquía mexicana 👋🏼
My favourite kind of walks are the ones when the sun goes down and the city comes alive. People sitting on terraces, drinking cocktails, laughing and just enjoying the moment. Soo beautiful and pure. 💛
I almost cannot believe how beautiful this autumn is. 🍁🍃🍂If it wouldn't be for the colourful leaves I would think it is spring. •
Today was truly a wonderful day. 💕 Eating lunch outside on the stairs at @odprtakuhna
, walking through the city center that is filled with people, catching sunshine, little bit of shopping and now lying on sofa wandering what to do tomorrow and wheather I should make chocolate pudding or hot chocolate for dinner. 🤔☕ •
Sun is slowly setting behind the hills and I couldn't be more excited about what weekend will bring.😄❤ What made your Friday wonderful? #questionoftheday
Nature in Bali is something different than I am used to. It is so luscious, colourful and beautiful! You see green everywhere you look. If you know me then you know, that I looove palm trees so this place is pretty much paradise for me 🌴💛
It is a beautiful thing to be so close with nature and in Bali it is a sin not to enjoy it! 🥥
We have nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore - except to make our lives into a work of art. 🎨
How I miss my cute buddy 🐢
“Then, a golden mystery upheaved itself on the horizon, a beautiful winking wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome nor Hindu temple-spire” . — Rudyard Kipling .
No picture can actually do justice to the real beauty of this Stupa located in Yangon, Burma 🇲🇲 .
Legend has it that it was built more than 2600 years back and is the oldest Buddhist stupa in the world. The Pagoda stores significant holy relics of four previous Buddhas. The relics contain a few strands of hair of Gautama Buddha, water filter of Koṇāgamana, a piece of the robe of Kassapa and the staff of Kakusandha .
This 325ft (99 meters) stupa that’s plated with 8688 sheets of gold, shimmers in the day light and sparkles when it’s dark, it is studded with more than 7000 diamonds and precious gems like rubies, sapphires, topaz along with a massive piece of emerald. It is said that the emerald bounces of the last rays of the sun as it sets. The crown is topped by a diamond bud called ‘sein bu’ which carries a 74-carat diamond .
The octagonal base of this Pagoda has a post on each corner depicting the day of the week. Wednesday is divided into two shrines for am and pm. Most of the visitors pray at the shrine that represents the day of their birth. I prayed in front of Wednesday pm "Elephant with no tusks" 🐘
My favorite dinner of the trip took place at the Sanct Peter restaurant in Bad Neuenahr-Arhweiler. A fun fact about the place is that the building itself has been there since 1246!! They’ve been making wine here for centuries and the few that we sampled revealed that they have truly mastered the craft. (I particularly enjoyed the blanc de noir!) We proceeded to indulge in a rich and flavorful multi course meal. The moist and flaky lake fish (I believe it was #pike
) served with fingerling potatoes and a cream sauce really stood out. By the time dessert was served, I thought I couldn’t possibly eat one more bite, but then couldn’t resist trying their #cremacatalana
with apricot compote. It was a memorable and delicious evening! I look forward to being back! 📸 @absolutelyloved_stefanieriedel
I’ve been struggling a lot w anxiety lately. It’s something I’ve dealt w my whole life & some days are just harder than others. & right when things feel like they’re better, something shakes you up to make you feel worse. I know, I get it. You’re not alone. Always remember that. Social media can be beautiful but also deceiving. This moment was captured after a hard talk that led to tears & discomfort. It made me deal & think about things that I pushed aside for months. It was hard but necessary. I sat up on this ledge for a while staring out into what I believe is one of the most beautiful bodies of water & felt better. Connected. Free. I’m thankful for the anxiety bc it pushed me to grow & evolve. Hearing someone tell me they felt so alone made me so sad. You’re not. We all have struggles. This life thing ain’t easy. I am here for each & everyone of you. Speak up, I’ll listen💖
Walking through one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in my life. One of those ‘I have to pinch myself’ moments. Magnificent. This world is truly magnificent. 💛
Retinol ☝🏼 really is a miracle ingredient, hence why we decided to create a highly active Booster Drop dedicated to it! Key benefits includes improving appearance of sun damage + lines, acne scars + dark spots, evening your skin tone and boosting skin rejuvenation.
Canoeing calms my 🧡 & 🧠. I find peace in the steady pace of my paddle, discovering a spot to fish & the beauty of my surroundings. What effect does canoeing have on you? 🛶
grotta della poesia ✨// the cave of poetry, a little bit north of Otranto on the Salento Coast .
quick stop en route to the airport, because we had time, and I needed to be in one spot to do a call for work. Not the worse work view I’ve ever had.
Little Clementina & her momma. I can not get over those beautiful furry ears 💙
When you think about Bali, you think about luscious green rice fields 🌾
We visited the biggest rice fields in Ubud and they were so beautiful! ❤️
This place is pretty busy with tourists, but we went little bit further and found our own private terrace 🐒
The weather in Mexico City is just PERFECT! 👌🏻 | El clima en el DF me pareció espectacular. Ni frío ni calor. Con un suéter liviano está uno listo!
The magic is in you ✨ 📍Paraty
If you are in Canggu, I highly suggest going to the @finnsbeachclub
! Beautiful place, tasty cocktails, the best sunsets ☀️❤️
Bali sunsets are out of this world! ☀️
Leaving Seminyak tomorrow and heading to Ubud! Very excited to keep exploring! ❤️🐒
Getting sunkissed in Bali is the perfect way how to escape autumn in Latvia ☀️
Today we explored Seminyak. I have never thought that Bali is so diverse - tradition and modern world mix together on every corner.
If you visit Seminyak, I really suggest going to @potatoheadbali
, it is the best beach bar here! 🌴
