Hello Everyone – school holidays are over and we finished it off with a lovely few days away up the NSW coast with friends.  Spring is definitely here and I am loving the warmer days – I am definitely a warm weather lover!

Today I am sharing with you a recent article I wrote for the Spring edition of Adore Home Magazine all about my favourite places to visit in Bali. How nice to be called a Travel Writer – I need to find more of these gigs!

So after what has been the most amazing winter here in Sydney the weather has finally cracked and the rain is coming down by the bucket load!  As I sit here huddled in front of my fire watching the weather around me I keep thinking back to our amazing trip to Bali in July and thought today would be the perfect day to share some sun, fun and happiness with you.

I know I said it in my post a few months ago after our April trip to Bali but it really is the one place in the world I feel very connected to the world.  The constant warm days, the friendly people and the wonderful vibe I get every time I am in Bali makes me desperate to spend more than a just a few weeks at a time there.  I am still working on Mr A and hope that sometime in my future we can even a few months living the Bali life – switching off from the pace of life at home and just enjoying each others company.  

This trip to Bali was a little different than others as we were staying at my lovely friends Rowe’s villa.  Rowe is an Aussie photographer living in Bali with her family while her daughter Audrey attends the amazing Green School (such an amazing school – even just to visit).  We spent our first day with Rowe, Danny and Audrey before they headed home to Australia for a few weeks – it was a lot more like living in Bali than being in a resort with loads of other families – I just loved it and it gave me even more of a taste for it. 

So here are 20 of my favourite photos from our recent trip away (somehow I decided on these out of over 1,000) – I think I will have to do another post soon to share some more fun photos.

Would love to know where you love travelling to?  Is there somewhere in the world that you feel really connected to?

I had a busy month on instagram – I joined back in with the Fat Mum Slim Photo a Day Challenge for the month after downloading Chantelle’s brand new Little Moments App – it is so fantastic for keeping on top of the topic of the day as well as providing a fantastic photo editing package!  I also shared loads of projects I have been working on plus you can see our adventures in Bali!

Mr A and I recently took a wonderful child free trip to Bali!   Bali really is my most favourite country in the world to visit so when the opportunity to bid on a trip to go there at last years Stillbirth Foundation Charity Ball came up, we jumped at it!  We were joined by Mr A’s cousins and the 6 of us had an amazing week relaxing, shopping and EATING!

This was my 10th trip to Bali and the first time staying in a villa in the Umala’s area.  The villa was beautiful and the staff just wonderful.  It also happened to be my birthday while we were there so we made sure to check out some of the newer restaurants that have popped up since our last trip 6 years ago.

Here is a selection of my favourite shots from our week away!

We can’t wait to head back to Bali again – so much so that we have already booked to take the girls back with us in July this year!
