Bali Birthday Photo Diary

Spending your 30th in Perth = no deal!

Check out my visual diary of my recent trip to a very unique and original tropical holiday destination 3.5 hours from Perth.

Above: The last night in my 20’s @ Motel Mexicola

I made a joke before we left on my instagram @stylevoyeur about those memes – “How I think I look” VS “How I really look” and posted this pic from True Blood, imagining myself on our tropical holiday. Amazingly what was so funny is that our villa – Eden, Residence At The Sea – really did look heaps like the vibe of this pic. Ahhhh take that! True bliss!

Room with a view – this was the view from our rooftop at Eden. So amazing! I highly recommend staying here if you ever have a group of friends together and get the chance. They have 3 – 5 room villas and are so incredibly affordable for the level of luxury and service, I was amazed

The morning I woke up, put my bathers on, looked in the bathroom mirror and realised I was 30. I’ve never understood people who say they hate birthdays, however if turning 30 isn’t daunting, I don’t know what is. For me it was a weird feeling because, well I don’t feel 30. Hopefully I never will!

Breakfast as a 30 year old doesn’t look so bad! I have no idea why we don’t have Champagne, that came after..

After brek and a swim it was time for AMO – mani/pedi/massage, yes please. I believe the STUNNING owner of AMO on Petitenget is an ex-model – can you tell?

Awwww Birthday cake thanks to Eden – they were so sweet to do this. Delivered by our very own butler. Everyone sang me Happy Birthday and it made my night pre Sarong so special even though I can’t eat cake. #glutenfreelyfe

My beautiful gift from the incredible WA born, Bali based designer – Jaime Lee Major. Wow I’m a lucky girl! This snap was taken just before we headed off to Sarong for dinner on the night of my 30th Birthday. Ironically Jaime couldn’t be in Bali while we were there – you go cross continent to visit your best friend in her place of residence on your birthday and she ain’t even there to hang out! It is because she is a gosh darn superstar and had to hitch a flight to New York City just days before to shoot Kimbra’s music video with Thom Kerr. It actually went live today. Check it out HERE – Kimbra, Miracle and it makes me feel a little more understanding about the whole thing haha.

Pictures can not do Sunday Brunch at the W justice. It is literally Willy Wonka land

Last time I was in Bali in November I saw this shop right near Sea Circus being painted. For days we would drive past and see the girl working away, thinking it was crazy how long she took, however as you can see, it was clearly worth it!

500 Rupiah (roughly $500) will get you fake Chanel at Numero = no deal!

IMG_7128

What a stupid woman. No helmet and a bloody labrador on her bike. It amazes me the stupid shit people do. I would never get on one of these, let alone take a big dog on one – ugh!

IMG_7168

A very unusual looking holiday maker outside Bintang Supermarket. I have to find her card and report back – after I took her photo she said she had 30,000 Twitter followers and I think she was a famous performer/dancer. Hmmm watch this space

Just chillin’

The best coffee in Bali

Wearing Jeans West at our second villa, Bidadari. We had no wifi so we got a free massage, this is outside the salon. We HATED it there, so do not recommend but extended our stay and I’m glad we did as our third villa was lovely. Booking last minute is hit and miss

I absolutely love these chairs! Wearing a Jeans West dress and shells at the Bidadari salon

This was so bloody ironic. I’d had my turn of taking the master bedroom at our previous villa so when it was my turn to take the twin – this is what I have to deal with. A broken heart on my 30th – that’d be right. Feeling a little like a spinster at this point but the thought was there

Sunbaking topless at Grand Avenue in Umalas – not a bad way to spend a day

One of my favourite cheap and cheerful restaurants – Zula Vegetarian Paradise and to me it is paradise. Gluten free heaven

Nothing with a face or a mother at Zula – No.5 Dhyana Pura, Seminyak – walking distance from Bintang supermarket

The People Vs shorts – my favourite shop in Bali. The singlet I’m wearing in the first pic at Mexicola is also from there. I stock up every time I go now. There is one right near AMO on Petitenget and one on Oberoi
