Here's a little something with StyleTribute that I have collaborated and shot for, about two months ago. Style Tribute is an online boutique that carries second hand luxurious items in great condition. I'm not one that is willing to splurge on luxurious items but I do adore their quality and certainly understand it's price. I do own some branded products but you could count them with one hand. 

I am a girl and I will not deny that I get tempted to splurge and I do think that it is okay to invest in some great quality branded products. If you are like me, I feel Style Tribute is a great platform to go to! Get the bag or item that you have been eyeing at a fraction of the original price!

Got to chat a little with the StyleTribute Editor, if you are interested, here's the short interview!

It was a bright day, sun so warm, it burns. I wore that perfect eyelet top and basked in that scorching sun. I do not know why I complain about the sun so much when I love it.

4 am burger


In Bali, the area I reside (Senmiyak), I could hardly get food after 10pm. Even fast-food closes at 12am. Nico and I tried asking the locals where we could go for supper but apparently the people that we asked told us that there is not much options after 10pm. There is no such thing as supper for them. It was only till the last day, a local that works in a hotel and speaks great english told us that we could ride a little furter out of Seminyak for supper.

Well, so on the 4th day of my trip, I was invited to Bossman Burger to try out their burgers. It was then the staff told us that @bossmanbali operates till 4am in the morning. Nico and I were elated! Finally something other than instant noodles to satisfy our night cravings!

We all have something that we consider magnificent. Mostly, people relate it to an animal or a splendid view that is too good to be true. In my case the horse has always been something magnificent to me. They exude a certain kind of proudness and elegance at the same time. 

I have always felt somewhat related to a horse. According to the Chinese zodiac, I was born in the year of Goat but came before New Year in the Chinese calendar and therefore I'm considered born in the year of horse. Perhaps that is why I felt that I'm part of the family.

It is my first ever experience being so close to one of them and to ride on it. This was one of item in my "to-do -list" while in Bali.

There are a couple of horse riding companies and tours available at the area I was staying (Seminyak) but I wanted a more secluded place with lesser crowd. Nico did some research and decided to ride out  approximately 45 mins to a beach further away. I must say the time spent travelling is not wasted.

The Beach was beautiful with a super gorgeous sunset view and it's sand is in black. I was elated. I couldn't believe that I got to ride on a horse along the coast and enjoy the sunset with dear Nico.

Towards the end of the route my horse got a little temperamental, it was walking with great force, almost like a child stomping their feet. It was a rough one but I don't blame her, she must have been really tired after a long day and that made me feel kind of bad for riding on her and tiring her out.

The rough ride did not change my views on horses, they are magnificent to me.

And to end off my entry, here's a photo of Nico and I reluctantly raising our hands because our guide insist we raise up our hands and refuse to snap a picture for us until we do so.

There goes my picture perfect cool shot that I have in my mind.
