If you are in Bali and want a relaxing weekend, go to Lembongan. It’s a small island very close to Bali, around 30 minutes by boat.

You can catch the boat in Sanur, the price is on average 300,000 Indonesian rupiah per person for a round trip. I recommend the small Hotel / Restaurant “Bunga Bungalo” in front of the sea, it’s just soooooo beautiful. Rooms are functional and it is very well positioned in Lembongan.

This island will please you if you like snorkeling, if you like to discover beautiful beaches & if you want a relaxing moment 🙂


Enjoy it and Peace, Love & Mojitos !

Description of a perfect day in Ubud 

If you want to discover the wonders of Ubud, follow me! I already prepared the best program for a day of happiness in Ubud.

First step: Booked an hotel in a Guest House or elsewhere to spend your first night in Ubud. That’s better to be directly in Ubud and ready for the next day.

Second step: Go to the monkey forest around 8 am the next day. It’s really better to go over there early in the morning because there is not a lot of people at this time. You’ll see it’s amazing ! The monkeys are adorable and you can feed them. Price: 40,000 Indonesian Rupiah for adult. It’s cheaper for kids. You will spend between 2 and 3 hours to visit.

Third step: Tegalalang Rice Terrace. Rice fields are just beautiful, you have to see that. You could walk in the rice fields & stop to take pictures with the workers! This visit is free but count around 20,000 rupiah if you walk in the rice fields, you have to give some donations. You will spend between 2 and 3 hours for this activity. You can eat there, they are a lot of warung. 😉

Fourth step: Pura Tirta Empul temple. The temple is very touristic but you have to do that. The purification baths are the principal activity of the temple. The local population , men, women and children are dressed in their colorful traditional clothes . This is a spiritual activity. The price is 15,000 rupiah per adult and this visit will take about 1 to 2 hours . You will be close to many coffee plantations , do not hesitate to stop to taste .

Fifth step: In the evening, on the road back to Seminyak , stop at Tegenungan Waterfall. You can bathe in the waterfall. That’s really beautiful. This activity will cost you 10,000 rupiah .

After this day, you will be tired of course but I’m sure it’s worth it & Please do not forget your Karmen & Marius bag to follow you throughout the day.

Peace, Love & Mojitos !



Little Marcel 

Of course you know the brand Little Marcel, created in 2005 by Eric and his wife Lynda Schieven Leseigneur  at “Grau du Roi” in France. The story started with a “Marcel” (Tank top) continues to evolve. In 2006, with the success and demand , a child line is marketed under the name “Le petit Marcel” which will be followed in 2010 by a Baby collection “Mini marcel”. This year it was decided to give a real identity to the human line, called “MISTER MARCEL”.

Today the brand is growing strongly in exports in countries such as Benelux , Spain , Japan, Korea , Russia, Poland , Norway, Lebanon , the Caribbean, Australia and Canada.

I advise you to go in their store , the decor/ design in their shops is so nice & the products are beautiful and good value for money.

You can also find bags and accesories Karem & Marius in French outlets Little Marcel.

Peace, Love & Mojitos !




Today I’d like to talk about the Raffia. this noble material who is widely used throughout the world : It is used in twine, rope, baskets, placemats, hats, shoes, and textile. Of course you know 😉 This article will be devoted to tell the story of this material that I especially love & and I will speak to you about our bag collection Karmen & Marius made ​​with Raffia. Enjoy you reading !

The raffia tree belongs to the Palm family of trees. It can be found in abundance in countries as variedas Central Africa, Central America and in Asian countries alikefor example in the Phillipines and Indonesia. It has many uses in our daily lives ranging from ropes, decorative mats, shoes, bags, and hats; and prevalent also in the textile and contruction industries.

But it is here in Bali where we can find the Raffia leaf in all its splendour, immersed as part of the decorative daily offerings of the balinese tradition; found on the ground of street fronts to the façade of houses, hotels and hanging decoratively from cars to ceilings alike.

It is here where inspiration for its use as part of our line up of raffia bags come to being.

The fibrous leaf, referred to as the membrane, is found in the underside of each individual frond leaf, large and fanlike. The frond needs to be then delicately sliced to obtain the membrane fibre; which is a transparent soft material central in creating our Karmen & Marius Raffia bag collection. If the inner frond is not the one located closest to the mother branch then we cannot guarantee the softness of our products. Hence because of this, limitation in quantity and quality of our handmade products, you will always find inconsistencies to a varying degree. It is this membrane leaf that is then dyed and woven to produce our beautiful handmade raffia bags.

Thank you for reading and see you soon for another article.

Peace, Love & Mojitos !
