If you’re looking for a sign that you need to slow down and reconnect, this is it. After traveling around Bali for the past 14 days, the biggest thing I’ve noticed is how relaxed and happy everyone is here. I never felt rushed by anyone to do anything – whether it be paying for a delicious meal, taking in a scenic view, or stopping to ask a stranger for directions. Everyone has time or makes time. And if we run out of time, they just say “no worries” and we all move on.
Photo Details: Airplane Outfit c/o of In Flow Style & Suitcase c/o Away (I love this suitcase so much, and I recommend it to everyone.) Hello from Bali!!! Wow, guys – It is absolutely beautiful here! I’m floored by this beautiful country, the kindness of strangers, and THE FOOD. That’s another blog post entirely. I’m currently writing this whilst sitting outside at Zoe Villa Cafe in Canggu. We’ve been here for a week already, and I missed writing, so I wanted to go ahead and share our flight experience with you.
Has it seriously already been 3 years since I launched Om & The City? I cannot imagine life without this space, and I feel very blessed to have started blogging back when I did, because it helped me cope with so much. Om & The City started out as a creative avenue for me to share my wellness knowledge with the small group I acquired through guest blogging for Your Zen Life. Flash forward 3 years, and it has evolved into a little business, but with the same integrity as it did when I first started.
Do you ever have so many things you want to say, but you end up not saying a word, because you’re not sure where to begin? That’s how it has been for me this past week. I’ve harbored so many thoughts and ideas since my trip to the funky cool Austin, TX. Although, I’m still struggling to sort out my thoughts, I figured writing this blog post would be a good place to start.
Ecuador. Ecuador. Ecuador. Oh, how I love thee. After spending some time in Colombia and Nicaragua, I knew I had to make my way through this beautiful, earthy and mountainous country. I’ve been longing to travel here for a few years now, so it feels unbelievable to finally say ‘I DID EET!’ I didn’t do it alone, though – I traveled with my lovely boyfriend Andrew, who I am so thankful for. We travel to foreign countries very well together, so I feel pretty lucky.
Hello, my lovely readers. I just want to start off by saying thank you so much for the condolences and comforting words on my Instagram the other day – My sweet little doggy Mischa passed away over the weekend, and although I am terribly sad, I am grateful she is able to rest in peace now. She was the most precious little thing, and it’s hard to deal with. Thank you for lifting me up. Mischa passed on Friday morning in my hometown, while I was upstate at a yoga retreat. My mom waited to break the bad news until I returned from my trip. I am grateful she waited, because I ended up having an incredible weekend.
