Owning a villa in Bali might be your dream, but Ozlem Esen is lucky enough to call it her reality. The super stylish mama spends her days chasing her adorable daughter around Canggu beach, soaking up the sun and hosting the likes of Janne Robinson and other in-the-know haute hippes at Bali Styles, the  super chic villa retreat she owns with her husband Jared Mell. Could life get better? We don't think so. 

Right now I'm in (part of the world): Bali

The last bikini I bought was from: Kiini

Hat or sunglasses: My husband Jared Mell just designed a pair of sunglasses for Crap Eyewear called Bikini Vision. I can't take them off. 

Favorite sunscreen: Aesop

Beauty product I can't live without: Pacifica Alight bb cream. It's vegan and just divine, makes you glow and doesn't feel heavy like most foundations.

At the beach I always have a/my: Dog and baby! Also a sarong, sunnies and hat.

Coffee or tea? At my folks' it's black tea each morning, but anywhere else I'm a coffee addict. 

My favorite place to travel is: Oh gosh so many. Gökova in Turkey, Byron in Australia, Tokyo, L.A., Bali.

Instagram account everyone should follow (other than yours!): Helena Christensen, just to remind yourself of what a classy model looks like and what she posts compared to the new generation of "nude sex sells selfie attitude." Thefatjewish to remind yourself not to take Instagram seriously (or life for that matter).

My go-to workout is: Chasing my daughter around — she just started walking.

Favorite summer snack: Watermelon with feta and mint leaves.

Go-to summer cocktail: Pimm's, cucumber and Sprite with mint.

Work of art/photograph/book/song I can't stop thinking about: Book: Surfers of the zuvuyaLP's Lost On You (live) — man I can't get enough of that song since I saw her live. Tim Hawkins's artwork is amazing, I can't seem to stop feeling like an underachiever when I think of all he has made and when he actually sleeps.

My #summergoals are: To be more present in life.

Biggest inspiration: My mother for her courage, my daughter for her making me want to be a better human/woman who does what she wants in life without questioning herself.

Where I haven't been that I most want to go: South Africa, Spain, Italy's Amalfi coast.

Real tan or faux: Real

I'm never without my: Wedding ring
