Review and Hit-or-Miss: Herborist Olive Series

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something in the beauty section of this blog. Nothing personal, it’s just I’ve come to realize that I may come across “suck” as a beauty blogger, so it really discouraged me to write something related to beauty products. Ironically though, some of my beauty posts rank fairly high so I suppose it’s worth another try to write some more.

This time, I’ll talk about one of the well-known Indonesian beauty brands that you may find in some souvenir shops in Bali: Herborist.

Yep, if you got any chance to travel around Bali and stop by some souvenir shops there, you could easily find some beauty products from body lotion, bath salt and even body scrubs from various brands. Herborist is one of them.

Other than Herborist, you’d also find other brands like Bali Ratih, Bali Alus, and many other different brands that might attract your lust to pamper yourself.

Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence: Home Away From Home for Your Family Holiday in Bali

Hi everyone!

Tonight, I got pissed as Arsenal vs Chelsea game just finished, and the Gunners played so well only to get robbed in the end. I swear I could never forgive both Jorginho and Pawson for this game… Ever.

Anyway, even before the match started I was already prepared to write a review of the last accommodation where I was staying with my family in Bali. This post will also be the last post I have for my Bali series. I mean, I’m not planning to go back to Bali anytime soon, but who knows? Maybe I will post some more about it some time in the future. Never say never.

As I mentioned, in this post I’ll be sharing a review of the last place I stayed in Bali. It’s in Kuta area, and while Kuta might lose its popularity as it has become super touristy… The accommodation that I stayed in was actually the great one that I’d totally recommend for anyone traveling to Bali with their family.

It’s Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence, and here’s my review!

2020 New Year’s Resolution: My Goals to Embrace the New Decade

Merry Christmas, everyone! 😀

As you may already know, I don’t really celebrate Christmas. But spiritually, I definitely love the holiday seasons as well as the season’s greeting that always comes up with gifts and cookies. Anyway, since I don’t really follow Christmas tradition as I grew up mostly in a Muslim household… I’ll take some time to write about my new year’s resolution for 2020 instead.

It’s gonna be exciting. New year, a new decade, and some more new place(s) to explore in the future… My new year’s resolution for next year definitely marks my adulting life. Why? Well, let’s see!

Some Must-Visit Places in Bali (or Are They, Really?)

I gotta admit, there were a lot of distractions even though I was planning to write this post yesterday. From the technical reason of my computer being shitty, to the fact that I got too lazy to edit the pics. But anyway, 2020 is around the corner and procrastination is something that I’m trying to avoid next year. Or so I said. 😛

So, after reviewing Penida LaCasa Cottage and sharing with you how much I had fun on Nusa Penida… I’m going to write about the must-visit places in Bali, according to a lot of travelers coming to the island.

As you probably know already, it was my first time in Bali so I tried to visit all the main tourist destinations most people would suggest to me when it comes to the island. I didn’t have time to visit all the places, but I managed to stop by some must-visit tourist destinations there so I figure that maybe I should leave my two cents here.

Are they really must-visit places in Bali? Let’s see!

Penida LaCasa Cottage: A Cozy Place to Stay in Nusa Penida, Bali

I got some kind of writer’s block lately. Not because I had no idea what to write, because I’ve actually got plenty of topics that I want to write on… But rather I was too lazy to sit down and start writing in front of my computer. My back hurts from carrying this dry sense of humor. LOL.

On a serious note though, I also got some other projects that I’ve been working on. I’m transitioning for my VA role, as now I’m more responsible for content creation instead of just managing clients’ social media. But anyway… I’m here now, so forget about work! 😀

I know that the first thing I need to write after this writer’s block passed would be the review of the accommodation where I stayed in Nusa Penida to catch up with my last Bali post. So, if you’re planning to go to the island and considering some options for the accommodation, I’ll share my experience staying at Penida LaCasa Cottage in Nusa Penida on this post.
