Budget Breakdown: Blissing Out in Bali

Budget Breakdown: Blissing Out in Bali

Bali is a gripping place. It can't quite be accurately depicted by words or pictures, but there are so many special things about this piece of paradise that must be felt and experienced in person. Its energy is prevailing, it's culture overflowing, and it boasts enough views to last a lifetime. 

Below I'm breaking down what I spent during my 8 day trip here, with the hopes that it can help you map out your future Balinese getaway. If you weren't planning one already, add it to your travel list and start now. This country, this island in particular, is a must visit, one of a kind destination. Fortunately, it's also incredibly affordable. Whether you're on a super tight budget or if you have some room to ball out (or somewhere in between like me), you are bound to live it up on this energetic Indonesian island. 

What a Perfect Chiang Mai Day + Some of My CM Favorites

What a Perfect Chiang Mai Day + Some of My CM Favorites

Since I’ve left home to live in Thailand and travel Southeast Asia 7 months ago (woooow time flies), there have been several days I’ve reflected on in appreciation and even a bit of incredulity because they were so incredibly blissful.

 

If you were to ask me what my perfect day looks like, there’s no way I’d be able to narrow down all the things I dream about making happen into just 24 hours. But when a day spent in the company of genuine people, with beautiful sights, adventures, laughter & meaningful conversation materializes -- I realize the elusive idea of perfection is actually attainable.

3 for 3: A+ restaurants on the strip for brunch, dinner, and dessert. 

Brunch

It's a Saturday in Vegas. Understandably, you'll wake up considerably late after your full night whylin' out until sunrise. You'll crave cheesy eggs and syrupy Belgian waffles, halfway hungover and upset when you turn over and read it's nearly 1:00 or 2:00pm, undoubtedly past breakfast time around these parts. No worries! Hash House a Go Go is right here.

Celebrating 24 | From San Francisco to Santa Monica

(Four)eeeeeeever young, I want to be (four)ever young...

Whenever someone in my age bracket -- *cough* my best friends included -- says we're getting old, I immediately give them a "bish whet?"-esque reaction and cue up "Forever Young" in my head. Thinking young is not an excuse to treat my 20s as a carefree continuation of undergrad, but a motto to remember that age is what you make of it. If I had my headphones with me today, I'd be playing that song (Jay-Z’s version, of course) right now, because it's perched up in my mind. But I forgot my headphones today, and that always sucks. Womp.

Wine Not? | A Mellow Malibu Winery Outing

Every time I find myself in Malibu, it’s a breath of fresh air. Whether I’m coastside cruising down along the PCH or up driving in and out of the rolling hills, the many scenic perspectives tug at my heartstrings.

Life seems easy in the ‘Bu. I can totally picture myself spending a breezy afternoon catching waves at Surfrider Beach (#surfbort), heading to dinner at Nobu where I might see Drake eating crabs and casually say what’s up, and then I’d retreat to my nice cozy palace…
