Tropical Getaway

Nothing says tropical getaway like this palm tree printed one piece by Australian swimwear label Cantik.  Backless and slightly cheeky this onesie is also wearable of the water with denim cut offs.  Photographed on a recent trip on the Indonesian island of Suluwasi

Last year I first discovered Australian made coffee-based skincare company FRANK who have recently branched out from a simple coffee scrub (see my frank body review here) to a growing coffee-based skincare range.

Why do I like Frank?
He’s simple and natural
He only tests on Babes
He doesn’t contain any parabens, PEGS, phthalates., sulphates or silicones.
Products are locally made in Melbourne Australia using natural ingredients like coconut oil, mint and cinnamon.

The new range consists of a creamy face cleanser to remove make up and remove impurities with coffee seed extract and charcoal.  A creamy face scrub to use when your want to clear those pores with detoxifying white clay and a mixture of nourishing oils.  Followed by an everyday face moisturiser to stimulate and nourish morning and night.

Two days ago was absolutely shocked to find four wild dolphins being held in a tiny pool at a resort called ‘Wake Bali” which faces the ocean at Keramas Beach in Bali.

After a friend had notified me upon seeing them on a surfing trip, I found this petition on started by surf reporter Craig Brokensha.  I then went down to personally see them for myself and was absolutely horrified at the conditions of the dolphins who were trapped in a tiny clouded pool, laying still and almost lifeless in the water.

I laid down next to edge of the pool to observe the dolphins, when they saw me they swam over and began to noticeable cry.  This moment was absolutely heartbreaking.

The resort charges $85 USD for tourists to see the dolphins and $110 USD to swim with them in the pool.  The Dolphins have been held there for over a year. The pool is approx. 10m x 20m in size. Not much bigger than an average back yard pool.

Through my social media channels @nataschaelisa and that of our Non Profit Organisation @modelsofcompassion we have in the last 24 hours managed to reach an enormous amount of people and get the attention of some very influential public figures and organisations.  This goes to show the power of social media and the influence it can have in creating awareness and encouraging action.  I can’t thank the 100K people enough who have signed this petition.  If you haven’t, please do!

The dolphins look very unwell and the water they are in is cloudy and dirty. They will require rehabilitation before they can survive in the wild again.

Let’s get these dolphins rescued and rehabilitated!!!
