Fashion and Beauty in Bali, Indonesia

Summer never ends in the island of the gods.

A wet summer, moist heat  punctuated by rain: it’s hot, very hot! Lazily lounging in the pool. Here is my selection for those who like to travel with few things!    

Picture 1 : An H&M black swimsuit top on a Balinese sarong. A sun protection really easy to apply, Invisible Hydrating Mist Vichy of Capital Soleil SPF 50. Lovely scent, finally a sunscreen with a texture that doesn’t stick!

Fan of light fragrances,

I never go anywhere without one or more perfumes! Pictured above: L’occitane au Brésil, Vitória-Régia (: « the star of waters » is a giant flower from Amazonia). It’s fresh and bloomed like a summer haze : ) 

Other good surprises: the Bodifying Shampoo – Bain Densité of Kérastase Densifique (on the lay out above : on brown sarong and near the H& M bikini with Panther prints). Great care for my super dry hair!

I can’t swim or style my hair without the Masque Spray Multi-Soin Actiliss of Activilong (French ethnic brand). I apply this mask without rinsing. Excellent versatile product.

Addictive Bulgari Omnia Indian Garnet!

By far my favorite scent for months! Euphoric, magical and orange! Original and very sensual bottle (pictured above)! As you may have already read, I loved to madness , Fragrance For Women.

Bulgari Omnia Indian Garnet is happy gourmand fragrance with notes of mandarin, saffron, Indian tuberose, osmanthus and amber. A journey to happiness! Picture above: H&M swimsuit striped on a Balinese sarong.

To soothe, moisturize and nourish the skin of the body,

the Lait Fondant Réparateur Thé vert (Melt-in Body Lotion – Green Tea) of Roger & Gallet: discret smell and velvety texture that quickly melts on the skin. Very lovely in a tropical climate, where just out of the shower, you sweat again! Lol!

Photos below: decorating Balinese religious holidays (on wooden board). And the excellent sun protection not very glam for children that I use when I play sports (surfing, swimming …): La Roche Posay Anthelios Dermo-pediatrics 50+.

Hillside Beach Club: The Sanda Spa and Serenity Beach

Lovers of the Mediterranean claim

that the blue of the Mediterranean Sea is unique: this is so true (picture 1)! I could spend hours gazing at this bright dense blue.                                  

But I have to cross the Hillside Beach Club to go to the Sanda Spa, nestled on a hillside in the heart of a luxuriant vegetation.       

The setting is extremely relaxing with comfortable wooden cottages, such as massage rooms.

The Sandi Spa’s therapists are from Bali:

great! Finally I’ll discover the famous Balinese massage! Even I am addicted to Asian massages, I haven’t had yet the opportunity to experience the Balinese massage.     

As always I prefer to be fasting for massages. When I took my RV, I didn’t really read the massage menu and just asked for a similar massage to a traditional Thai massage.   

Ie a massage a little painful at the time that stretches all the muscles of your body and makes you feel great the next day.

And I was recommended the Asian Nirvana,           

that lasts one hour and treats by pressures: ” Deep tissue therapie using elbow pressures” and performed with oil.

Another new detail for me: at the end of treatment, the therapist pats my back with these two warm instruments (picture above, left side), which I forgot the name (oops)! The feeling is very soothing, because the heat spreads throughout the spine.                 

After the treatment, I sloth in a comfortable large white chair, rocked by the sound of a small waterfall (picture 2). Then I head to the Serenity beach at the extreme opposite of the Sanda Spa (LOL!).

A small beautiful cove

where the beach is super quiet. You can access it either via a path that borders coast (picture above) or by boat (picture 4).    

Children are not allowed, neither revelers or noisy games and animations … And you can really relax with a sense of being far far away from the real world!    

Few chairs, few people. Most are with a book in hand. In the afternoon, it’s even better: as the beach is in shadow, there is almost no one.

You can have lunch on the beach. 

On the menu: healthy light kebabs with grilled chicken wrapped in thin bread. Good for my diet ; )    

There is no vegetarian menu, but there are tasty vegetables and extra fresh fruit juices (pictures above). 

To return to the main beach and lounge of the club, I decided to try the boat … Lovely! Almost like in Venice, LOL!
