With those long lazy days of Summer, but a dream behind us, we’re taking a moment to reflect upon a languid Sunday morning with our face to the sun as we relax on the back porch.

Central to capturing this mood, is the ultimate chilled playlist helping you ease into a complete sense of idleness, with no inclination for anything other than falling into a dreamy blissful state.

Hanging Lights at Cafe Bali, Seminyak In 2014 we had a 10 month stint living out on the Bukit Peninsula – Cafe Bali was our go-to after the long motorbike ride to town, for a refreshing
 Margarita  drink, tranquil vibes and comfy cool spot to let those jelly limbs revive after the long bumpy ride.

Through the louvered front windows of the ‘Trove’
[definition: a store of valuable or delightful things]
the scene is of a salty, tropical, beach house vibe.
With homewares and art beckoning to deck your walls, along with relaxed easy flowing fashion, to make you feel at home on the beach, jetty or the deck of a yacht.

It was 2001; I began flying with Virgin Blue as a Flight Attendant,
 when I bought my first pair of Sass & Bide washed blue denim jeans.
They had developed an underground following; and it became the off-duty uniform for all VB Flight Attendants, everyone was wearing the fitted denim jackets with the tulip sleeves…

Magali & Matt Wed, Bali – Destination Wedding



We at Handsome Citizens can not encourage you enough, if you are heading down the aisle; to consider a destination wedding. We were married at a private villa on the cliffs of Uluwatu, Bali, with a very few intimate friends, and we recommend it highly. No stress, no fuss, beautiful surroundings, warm weather, surf/yoga/massage all at your fingertips to get the day started, your own pool and private villa, wonderful staff to look after you, and make sure your day goes to plan. Are we selling you? If you need a little more persuasion or if you just fancy a sticky beak, take a look at this wedding shown on The Lane, an on-line wedding directory.
Magali Pascal, a French fashion designer; and now husband Matt, were married in a private villa at Canggu in Bali on 6th July 2013 with a 1920’s Gatsby inspired theme, together with 120 guests. As you can see it was a magical affair, with the ceremony held on a bed of pink rose petals with a backdrop of giant bamboo at 5pm… ☟☟ Continue Reading →

Thompson) took us on a ride through San Juan, Puerto Rico. Sharing with us dapper men in straw hats and cool sunglasses (stars Johnny Depp & Aaron Eckhart), sitting behind the wheel of a fast-driven shiny red Corvette…

These incredible Resin works of Art,

“ Work is my therapy & drive. I don’t know anybody who loves painting & art as much as I do. It give’s me such pleasure with massive highs & low’s. I truly feel alive. It separate’s me from reality into not having to deal with the unnecessary shit that is thrust upon us in real life.”
