Sweet Dreams Are Made of This!

Think colourful corals and hues of blue, add cool bags and clutches plus their signature shoes and you’ve got Mimpi Mannis’ brand new boutique right here in Canggu! Take a ride down Jalan Pantai Berawa and you won’t be able to miss this little oasis of colour! Even with the dizzying amount of cool new cafes and chic boutiques popping up in this bustling precinct, Mimpi Mannis stands out in the crowd. Their fabulously designed and inviting shopfront comes complete with cacti and their own totally instagrammable archway for you to show off your new, on point purchases!

Die hard sandal fans who have followed this label since their original shop in Seminyak will be surprised by the size of this sister store once they step through the door! Light and large with amazing interiors by the talented design team at My Shrine, the new shop stocks an even bigger range of Mimpi Mannis’ gorgeous, signature strappy flats in an array of stylish tones along with clever heels and wearable wedges. They also do an adorable range of mini Mimpi sandals so that on trend tots can match their mamas! Too cute!

Originally more of a fashion footwear destination, Mimpi Mannis have recently launched their own clothing line – a flattering and feminine collection featuring Bali Boho in the prettiest prints and of course, COLOURS! Maxi skirts with matching tops and flowing, full length floral pieces reign supreme and you’re sure to find a heavenly pair of Mimpi sandals to match.

No need to motor any further upon the street for accessories. Mimi Mannis stocks a sweet selection of sunnies and scarves as well as a wide range of bags ranging from coin purses to mid sized clutches, shoulder satchels and beach bags. From faux leather to rattan or cross woven fabrics, designs are fun and flirty with a tropical edge. The best part is, with prices that won’t bore a hole through your fashion budget, shopping at Mimpi Mannis means you can complete your look for less and still walk out the door with money for your Mojito!

On holidays and forgotten to stock some of the basics? Check out their bright collection of bralettes, crops and pretty personals, perfect for adding a pop of colour to peek out from an off the shoulder top or low cut maxi. They also have costume cuffs and rings as well as polishes for tips or toes and who could resist one of those cute pom pom fans for keeping as cool as you look on these steamy Bali days.

Located along Jalan Pantai Berawa just opposite Jungle Trader, meet the team at Mimpi Mannis today. Look out for the coral and blue building with the cool pot of cacti out front. Be sure to check out their instagram page to see what’s in store @mimpimannis


Super Bowl Sunday? Or is That Monday?

Even if, like yours truly, you know nothing about American Football and are a complete clueless when it comes to NFL (that stands for National Football League by the way – the stars and stripes version) you must have heard about Super Bowl Sunday! Nope, nothing remotely associated with a bowling ball or white shoes and astroturf, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most anticipated days on the North American sporting calendar. It’s the annual championship game between what was once the American Football League and the National Football League before their official ‘merger’ in 1970.

Whether you are one of the millions who tune in because you truly love your gridiron and all that ridiculous padding that goes with it, have a hankering to see who’s presenting the half time entertainment (how could we forget THAT Janet Jackson incident!!) or someone who doesn’t give a toss about the touchdowns but desperate to see those million dollar ads, the Super Bowl is undeniably one of the most viewed sporting events across the world today and a spectacle well worth the watch.

Thanks to the multitude of television screens around Finns Recreation Club and in The Sports Bar, you won’t be needing to venture far to see this year’s game – the 52nd clash since January 15th, 1967 and officially referred to as Super Bowl LII. Due to time differences, (we are WAY ahead of you USA!) we can’t really call it Super Bowl Sunday here in Bali because our telecast of the big game commences from 7am on Monday February 5th. Irrespective of the international dateline, Super Bowl is on at Finns!

Not a morning person? Grumpy face be gone when you discover that Happy Hour starts from 7am and continues all day! And what’s a football game without footy franks? Tuck into an American breakfast or some finger lickin’ chicken wings for some sustenance throughout the game with Bistro C’s regular menu still available.

The game kicks off with international artist Pink belting out the Star Spangled Banner and this year’s heavily anticipated half time show is from none other than Justin Timberlake, a soon to be third time veteran of Super Bowl Sunday performances, having appeared previously in 2001 and 2004. Though we’re not likely to see any more wardrobe malfunctions for this year’s performance!

Will it be the Jacksonville Jaguars or odds on favourites and last year’s winners, New England Patriots; the Philadelphia Eagles or home team Minnesota Vikings to take home the trophy?
We won’t know until after the playoffs but one thing is for certain, it’s going to be one helluva show! For a guaranteed seat to see all of this year’s Super Bowl Sunday excitement, come along to Finns on February 5th. Footy fan or not, it’s a pretty awesome way to spend a Monday! Finnsrecclub.com


Bringing Back the Love @Body Temple

Feeling a little tingle in your fingers and your toes? That’s because love is all around us in February and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the time is ripe to plan a little something special for you and your significant other. Whether you are showing that certain someone just how much you really do care, surprising somebody new or planning to shower a little love on yourself, Body Temple Spa has romance wrapped up with a range of special treatments to share the love.

Looking great for date night this month is an absolute must, particularly if you’re planning on impressing anyone new. There’s nothing more sexy than a smooth set of pins and sleek, soft skin so book your wax appointments ASAP! Body Temple Spa will have you date ready and rocking that little cocktail number with their wax specials in February. Book any two wax treatments and you will receive the third (of a lesser value for free). All treatments do have to be taken in the same appointment, but that just means you’ll be stubble free where it matters most. Not just for the ladies, this one includes you too fellas…. #nostacherash!

For those of you looking to love yourselves a little more in 2018, Body Temple’s ‘Me Time Massage’ will be just the tonic to chillax and rejuvenate. Combining a 30 minute foot massage, 30 minute head massage and a 60 minute full body massage, this two hour time out package is the ultimate way to say ‘I love you’ …….or more importantly…..I love me! At a discounted price of only Rp650K your wallet will be feeling the love too.

Here’s a shout out to those starry eyed love birds among us…. If rekindling some romance is required, treat yourself and the one you love to a luxurious Thalgo Couples Treatment in our romantic couples room. This multi sensory spa experience starts off with a vanilla scented body rub. The 60 minute Polynesian Style Mahana Massage that follows incorporates rhythmic, Lomi Lomi style strokes using warmed sand pouches to loosen muscles and further nourish the skin. No need to rush, take your time and enjoy two glasses of sparkling wine as you soak away any remaining tension in a floral bath. Once you are fully relaxed and ready, your therapists will apply a dry oil to your skin to lock in the moisture and maintain that sun kissed glow. Emerge feeling like you and your love have experienced an exotic island getaway……..oh wait, hang on!

Bookings at Body Temple Spa are highly recommended so don’t wait too long to secure an appointment for Valentine’s Day or you might be needing more than a massage to mend those broken bridges! Book you and your babe in today or ditch the ball and chain and make it all about you!
