Postcard from Bali

Fellow blogger M. of the lovely  She Wore It Well  blog has recently been on holiday in Asia, the lucky girl.

To me, part of the charm of travelling to the tropics goes something like: Sitting under a lush, green palm tree by a gorgeous turquoise pool, wearing a big floppy hat, elegant sunglasses and a breezy tunic, colourful cocktail in one hand, pen in the other while writing postcards to family and friends. [Insert lots of beautiful images of all of the mentioned things here].

Now, that's what I'd call relaxing in style. And in my imagination I can vividly picture her as the star of a fashion editorial depicting that scenario, when she wrote me this idyllic postcard from her vacation:

Thanks, M! Getting a beautiful postcard from someone's exotic holiday destination sure lights up a dark, freezing cold day in a dreary winter that never seems to end.


  1. Aww how sweet! We were in Bali last year and visited a few temples (yes they are gorgeous in person too!)

    Hope your house painting went well this weekend!

  2. I am waiting for mine:)
    Thanks for sharing you lucky girl.

    Have a great day:)

  3. Aaaah... how nice. So lovely getting postcards from around the world. xx

  4. How great!! I love receiving snail mail! And a postcard from an exotic location like Bali is beyond special :) That was very thoughtful of her!

  5. Bali looks like an amazing place - I'd love to visit, one day.

  6. Awww that's so lovely, thank you!

    I can't believe the postcards are taking 6++ weeks to arrive. CRAAAAAZY!

    Pls don't kill me.. I found that Tibi dress we both love *gulp*

    And I know of a mail forwarding service from USA that I always use.. double gulp. It's all over for us I think!


  7. Snap! I just wrote a post about an incredible short film called 'Postcard from Bali'. You should stop by and check it is such a delicate and beautiful film..

  8. Oh yes I agree! I savour my postcard collection, it takes me away....would love to go to Bali one day too!

  9. aww, postcard from Bali <3
    you gotta go to Bali one day!
    btw, have we follow each other?

  10. Ah, how charmimg - Bali is the land of mystery and mystical googdness, and I adore postcards from exotic locations, too. Warmly hope your health is OK.
