Bali has a lot of spas; in some areas, every third shop is a spa. All varieties of spas can be found as well -- from local to international award winning spas. In recent years, a lot of people have become more conscious of what they put on their skin. The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so with increasing amounts of chemicals in many products, it can lead to allergies or worse. One way to avoid this is to choose a spa that uses naturally made products and takes an approach that is kind to your skin. Local Indonesian jamu (traditional medicine) methods have always done this but a few luxury spas in Bali not only use natural products but also take the spa experience to a new level of comfort. The Spa at Alila Soori Villas The Spa is housed in a sustainably built house with a view of the Indian Ocean in front. Entering this warm and opulent hideaway, the central spa area is dominated by a beautiful pool that instantly adds a sensuously relaxed atmosphere. The traditional Balinese Beauty Ritual is two hours of pure bliss. Balinese lulur is an ancient village remedy with its origins from the rice farmers of Bali that is recognized as traditional medicine. The treatment is believed to help warm the body, relieve aching joints and help in the recovery of troubled or loose skin. Locally sourced sandalwood, fennel seed, star aniseed, eaglewood and fenugreek are blended together to use during this healing remedy. It is a 60 minutes Balinese Massage, body scrub, body mask and mini facial. The massage uses natural oils and you can choose a beautiful aromatic blend to suit your mood.

3 Fun Outdoor Hairstyle Ideas
It's never too early to prepare for Fall. My friends and I just started thinking about outdoor activities during Fall and here I am looking through hairstyles for hiking. I'm that excited. Also, I want to share my curated list to everyone because I thought some of you might be interested in changing up your hairstyles for your fall classes or activities such as biking, rock climbing or yoga. Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect. Your hair will look good for hiking photos and it's not to shabby for a post-hike meal at a diner. This is also a no-fuss helmet hairstyle. Buns are too snug. Styling Instruction: 1. Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.

Meatless Monday Recipe: Red Lentil & Root Veggie Dal
I love Indian food. I love the unique spices and the savory flavors and the fact that it really is so healthy. (As long as you stay away from the cream-heavy sauces, that is!) My favorite Indian restaurant always serves up their meals with a small bowl of dal, traditional curried lentils, and sometimes I want dal more than I want my actual meal! Here is a really great recipe for making dal with red lentils and root veggies like parsnip, turnip, and carrots. You can enjoy it as a side that's about 240 calories or serve it over brown basmati rice for a terrific and light meal! --------------------------------------------------- Red Lentil & Root Veggie Dal 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 medium-sized onion, diced finely 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons coriander seeds, crushed 2 - 3 teaspoons mild curry powder (I would start with 2 teaspoons and add more to taste at the end.) 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 1/4 teaspoons salt 4 cups vegetable broth 1 cup dried red lentils 3/4 pound parsnip, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups) 3/4 pound rutabaga or turnip, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups) 1 cup baby carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces Lime slices, for serving (optional) 1. Preheat a 4-quart pot over medium-high heat. Saute the onions in the oil until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes, and saute for another minute. 2. Add the remaining spices and salt, and saute for about 30 seconds, then add the broth, lentils, and the remaining vegetables. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, keeping a close eye on it. Once it's boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, until the lentils are creamy and the vegetables are soft. If necessary, thin the soup by adding up to a cup of water. Taste for salt and seasonings. 3. Let the soup sit for 10 minutes or so for maximum flavor. Serve garnished with lime slices.
