Best shopping in Ubud, Bali

A shopping afternoon in Ubud, Bali

Here on twindly, we’re always curious which exotic beauty items we’ll find when we’re vacationing. (We shared our Hawaiian, Icelandic, Singaporean finds here and also have handy Frankfurt and Berlin beauty shopping guides.) When I arrived in Bali, famous for its spa culture, yoga, beaches and arts and crafts, I came armed with a list of beauty shops I wanted to visit. (Among temples, volcanoes and beaches, of course.) Imagine my disappointment when one of the shops had moved, and I could only find one of the others! But nevertheless, I want to share some gems I found in Ubud, a charming city in the midst of the island.READ MORE

Beauty shopping in Singapore

Beauty adventures in Singapore

I love Singapore. It has been dubbed the Asian city for beginners, because for a Western person, it’s incredibly easy to get around. For me, though, it’s the Asian New York City – a melting pot, a financial hub, a touristy mess – topped with a all-year round hot climate, awesome parks and gardens, yummy food and well, the shopping. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the shopping malls and opportunities, and I wouldn’t say that I even scratched the surface of this teeming city. But here’re my favourite spots for beauty shopping in Singapore.READ MORE

Packing for the holidays

Makeup on a plane

What makeup can you take on a plane? I travel frequently and tend to lug a lot of my makeup around when I do (chronic over-packers represent!). Taking skincare and makeup items with you on a plane can be quite tricky, though. Here I’ll tell you what best to pack into your carry-on, and what should go into checked baggage (and what you can do if you only have a carry-on).READ MORE

Summer travel essentials – what you’ll really need

I recently saw a Summer Travel Essentials blogpost that featured toe rings and stationery, and while I don’t know your life and if toe rings are an absolute essential to you, it got me thinking. What are my travel essentials, for summer or other times of the year? As I’ve just returned from a three week trip, I’ve got a few things on my mind I’d love to share with you – let’s just say I’ve learned from my mistakes!READ MORE

Beauty abroad – Maui (Hawaii) edition

I spent my honeymoon on Maui, and there were a lot of different things on my mind and on my to-do list during those ten days, with beauty somewhere in the rear. People say that Maui is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and they’re right. So, neither wearing nor buying makeup was very high on my agenda. But beauty stuff has a way of sneaking into my life …READ MORE

Airplane travel – how to care for your skin and stay comfortable!

While vacations are among the best things in life, the way to get to your destination is mostly an experience that ranges from bleh to awful. I love exploring distant countries, but long-distance flights? They’re something to be endured, not to enjoy. Here’re my tried and true tips to make the experience a little bit less dreadful.READ MORE

Beauty shopping in Frankfurt (and other tourist-y info)

Think what you will about busy Frankfurt (and I’ve been known to bitch about the city where I moved to some years ago), but the shopping opportunities are quite good. Beauty shopping in Frankfurt mainly takes place in four areas of the city centre, so I’ll take you there today and tell you a bit about each shop and the area where it’s located.READ MORE
