I‘ve always dreamed of traveling and I feel so very lucky that my job takes me around the world to be witness to and capture the wonder and beauty of different cultures, natural marvels, and lifestyles. One of our most recent journeys was to the island of Bali to shoot Cuyana’s summer campaign. We added a few days to the trip so we could truly experience the island, hosted by our friends and Bali natives at John Hardy who know the island so well. Staying at the Villa Campuhan was one of those pinch-me moments when your wanderlust dreams come true in the pure definition of paradise…we ate only the freshest food in an open air pavilion overlooking the Balinese ocean, we drank coffee with the sunrise and spent the hot afternoons swimming and reading. This special place fit right into LoveGold‘s summer of #wanderlust campaign… I can’t wait to see where other people travel to over the next few months and if they are lucky enough to be adorned in luxurious hand crafted gold like I was. Here is what I wore at the breathtaking Villa Campuhan…gold to match the sun, white to keep cool, anything to flow like the ocean and only bare feet ~

My favorite aspect of traveling is discovering new flavors, below experiencing the local fruit mangosteen which I fell in love with! It tastes sweet and somewhat like lychee while also being a great antioxident // John Hardy Bamboo Collection gold and diamond ring

  • You look like a tropical goddess with those backdrops and the beautiful pieces you’re wearing! It looks like a marvelous time (and I hope you enjoyed Love In The Time Of Cholera)!

    You and Kevin will have to journey out to Santorini sometime soon… it’s the one place I’ve been to that I can never stop dreaming about and I know you’ll fall in love with it!

  • Wow, your pictures look amazing and make me want to go back to Bali NOW for a couple of days. I am currently living in Hong Kong so I am dreaming of non-asian destinations like Zimbabwe or Peru. I love Africa and South America.
