Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Single on Valentines day?

Ok so yes Valentine’s day is a commercial holiday, but single or not it’s hard to avoid it’s influence. Whether it’s what will I get for ‘so and so’, what will ‘so and so’ think to get me, or where do I find a ‘so and so’ so I don’t feel left out of the fun?

Here are a few things going on about town these days to help you find your special ‘so and so’. Or better yet just to have a little flirt fun, because isn’t that one of the joys of being single… unfiltered, guiltless, flirting freedom ; )

The Blenz Red Band – So Blenz has this new campaign going on where single folk use a special red drink sleeve for their cups. the idea is that other singles will spot the red sleeve on your cup and know you are available. You can even check off if you are looking for friendship, casual, dating or a relationship, and there’s a place for your name and number too. So if you’re like me and seem to only be able to muster the confidence for eye contact… maybe a bold dropping off of your cup (with your deets) on his table and then bolting (before you turn ten shades of red) is an option?

POF party – Good old Plenty of fish. They are having a mingler at the Fairmont on the 14th. I don’t like online dating because you have to invest time with someone before you even know if there’s chemistry, and more often than not there isn’t. So with this event the new school world of online dating meets the old school tradition of putting a bunch of singles in a room to see who clicks. – If you go to school, or spend time on campus this site is great. When you see that cute guy or girl in the library/coffee shop/etc, you can say something safely on the campus feed. Low risk here. They see it and respond, or they don’t and you assume that they just didn’t see it ; )

anyone know of anything else going on?

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
