This is a trend I love. I know that this look has been around for quite a few seasons now, but its one that I have fallen in love with, and have been getting done for the last few years now.

I’m actually not a fan on the technique when it involves the dip-dye look (which I personally think can look a little trashy), where it actually looks as though your last trip to the hairdresser was a good 6 months ago. I like the more natural look.

I have small breasts. I am just in a B cup (or could possibly even be an A on a non-hormonal day). I actually really like having small breasts, and there are some definite benefits to it. I don’t have to wear a bra all the time, and I think it would be near impossible for them to ever sag.

I remember girls saying when I was back in high school, to see whether or not your boobs are perky you put a pencil underneath them, and if it falls out, then you have perky breasts. I find it hard to imagine that high school aged girls breasts are not of the perky variety, but that’s another topic for another day. Now, I don’t believe I have an “underneath” of my breast, so I have passed the perky breast test with flying colours.

Eat, Pray, Love – Visiting Ketut Liyer (or as I affectionately refer to him as Ketut Liar)

I absolutely adore this book. In fact, there are a bunch of similarities to my own life  (which I will leave for another post) that are spookily uncanny.

Recently I went to Bali for my sister-in-laws 30th birthday celebration. After discovering that we had booked to go to Bali. I decided to look into making an appointment with the now famous 9th generation medicine man Ketut Liyer from Eat, Pray, Love. Upon Googling him, I discovered that he was pretty easy to find (I thought I would have a difficult time locating him), but the blog post reviews from other people that had gone to consult him for a reading were not entirely happy with his advice, and this had almost acted as a deterrent to me making the long trip out to see him at all.

Eat Love Pray #1

 The last time I was in Bali was in 2001, for my honeymoon (yes, I was a child bride), and it was unrecognizable to me from the last time I was there. And it was funny that the underlying reason behind my want to visit Ketut Liyer, was of course to mostly find out about where my relationship was heading.

Thai Massage

In my opinion, the Thais give the best massages in the world. Those petite girls are so strong, and know exactly what they are doing.

I go to Thailand quite often as I find it works out cheaper to go there for a week than it does to go to the Gold Coast. For a couple, we usually pay around $2000 for a week away in a 5 star resort, with breakfast, and return airfares. And depending on what it is that you do in Thailand, you don’t need a whole heap of spending money.

Thai Phuket Massage

I go there to relax. Relaxing is very difficult for me to do. By nature I am a very highly strung person, as well as suffering from insomnia. You could basically say that I need to take a chill pill at times, so I find this is the perfect location for me to unwind.
