I received our new pillows and duvet from Carpe Diem a couple of weeks ago. We already had a Carpe Diem bed (model called  Sandö) I have actually purchased this bed 2 times because of moving around a lot I had to sell the first one. So when I was moving back to Stockholm there was no question of which bed I wanted since it is the most comfortable bed I know. Even sleeping in amazing 5-star resorts and hotels makes me miss my own bed. For the bedding we decided on mulberry silk. The duvet is not very thick which looks so nice for a more “strict” looking hotel-feel bedding. The good thing about this silk is that it heats up when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot. Our apartment isn’t the warmest but I’m not cold at all and I don’t see the difference between this and our other down duvet. It is also dust and dirt-resistant and has an unique ability to clean itself. I’m not allergic but I just hate dust and when my pillows especially feels unclean. We choose a simple white duvet and pillow cover for an extra hotel feel! Everyone who knows me my ambition is to have a home that feels like a mix of a hotel and a boutique, hehe. And I have really felt amazing sleeping in this bedding the past couple of weeks. Working and being away so much from home makes me really appreciate my home and especially my bed so I’m very pleased with how it is now!

Jag fick hem mina nya kuddar och täcke från Carpe Diem för några veckor sedan. Vi har redan en Carpe Diem säng (modell sandö.) Jag har faktiskt köpt den här sängen 2 gånger i mitt liv då jag var tvungen att sälja den första på grund av att jag flyttade runt så mycket. Men när jag flyttade tillbaka till Stockholm så var valet av säng väldigt självklart för mig då det är den absolut skönaste sängen jag någonsin sovit i. Till och med att sova på fantastiska 5-stjärniga resorts och hotell får mig att längta efter min egna säng. Täckena och kuddarna bestämde vi för att köra på mulbärssilke. Täcket är inte speciellt tjockt vilket blir väldigt fint om man vill ha en lite mer “strikt” bäddad säng för en extra resort känsla. En bra sak är dock att täcket blir varmt när det är kallt och kallt när det är varmt. Vår lägenhet kan bli ganska kall på vintern så jag behöver verkligen något som känns varmt och det är precis lika varmt som vårt andra duntäcke även om det är mycket tunnare. En annan bra sak är att det är damm och smuts-avvisande. Jag är inte allergisk men jag hatar verkligen damm och när min säng känns smutsig. Speciellt kuddarna. Vi valde enkelt vitt för örngott och påslakan för extra hotellkänsla! Alla som känner mig vet att min ambition är att få mitt hem att kännas som en mix av ett hotell och en butik, haha. Jag har verkligen tyckt det känts helt fantastiskt att sova i min säng med mina nya täcken och kuddar. När jag jobbar och reser så mycket så uppskattar jag min egna lägenhet och speciellt min säng så mycket så det är väldigt viktigt för mig att det känns bra!

It has become a tradition for us to spend some time at one of the Alila Resorts while we are in Bali. Last time we were at the Alila Villas Soori and this time we tried out the Alila Villas Uluwatu. The same Alila concept that we love but a different location. What we love so much about the Alila resorts is definitely the calming and sooting colors and the luxurious but yet simplistic feel of the resorts. I personally love that combination. It makes you feel close to nature because you focus less on distracting colors or details but more on the beauty of the Balinese landscape and the beauty of the simple things. For me this also helps me find some inner peacefulness. Other details I love about Alila and what really makes it stand out to me is this feeling of freedom to do what ever you want with your vacation and that you don’t have to worry about anything. A clear example of this is that every villa has it’s full case of products for your every need. This may sound like a very superficial and girly thing. But the knowledge of having everything from mosquito bite spray, to sunscreen to facial mists in my villa makes me feel so calm. Forgetting a beauty essential on vacation for me could be so stressful. I remember when I was in the Maldives and I forgot my hair ties. BIG mistake. Since all resorts has it’s own Island there is only one shop on each island and they didn’t have any hair ties. Not to exaggerate but it ruined some of the experience for me to constantly feel my sticky long hair against my back in that heat not being able to put it up in a pony.  It is a true form of luxury for me to know everything is there if I need it and I don’t have to worry about it. Now when I’m back home it’s so easy to day dream about booking a ticket and pack a minimal suitcase and just go without any stress about what I need to bring. Another thing I love is that they always change up their breakfast menu with a lot of exciting and healthy options each day. It really makes me feel like they care about doing something inventive and exciting for me to start my day in the best way. I also love the fact that you can choose upon your arrival weather you would want a full on butler service for your villa or you prefer to have help upon request. Again I just love the freedom of the choice.

What difference the Soori location from the Uluwatu location is that the Uluwatu location is situated high up on a cliff with magnificent views of the ocean and forrest. The lounge area which is hanging out from the infinity pool is iconic and having a drink there just enjoying the view is magical. The manager also told me that they are in process of building a Hakkassan restaurant just next to the Alila Villas Uluwatu resort that will be finished by the end of this year. Hakkassan is one of my absolute favorite restaurants so to me that just had me completely sold. They will also have a few suites there that I am sure will be out of this world. We also had the pleasure of trying their restaurant Quila which serves fine dining food but it also takes you on a full on experience for all your senses. I will tell you more about that experience in a later post.
