How to Create Your Own Yoga Retreat in Ubud Bali

Bali bikini KissesVera-26Bali is one of those places that I can never get bored of visiting, simply because it has such a good vibe about it. My favorite places near the coast would be Seminyak, with all its hip designer boutiques, and then Canggu, which is more laid back.

But going into central Bali, and you'd come across Ubud, which is an amazing congregation of both locals and expats, many of which are very into yoga and green, organic food, or even raw food. You'd also find beautiful layered rice paddy fields, sacred temples and lots of good vibes. Lots of people come to Bali for Yoga and Spa retreats, which can easily cost up to USD2300, but actually you can just easily DIY the trip yourself for a fraction of the cost.

Refined Elegance & Talking Namecards

Cmeo Collective x KissesVera-8

Raffles Hotel is still one of my favorite spots within the city in Singapore. Set amidst all the high rises, it is a piece of history after having been converted from an old colonial house. I thought it was very befitting to wear this little black dress from Cmeo that I would like to call The Tulip thanks to its petal-like folds.

Paired with this soft leather handbag from Mango.

Vera Tries - IPL Hair Removal at EstheClinic

Esthe Clinic Review - KissesVera-2
I first did IPL when I was 17 years old - I did IPL on my arms and legs as I used to be a very hairy kid (true story). It was impacting on my self confidence and myself and mom made the decision to do permanent hair removal. It was a painful 6 - 7 months process - There were multiple times when my skin got burnt, as the IPL light was really strong and it was delivered in "shots" one area by area.
