This time last year I was ugly crying, mostly over my outdoor toilet, but partly because I wasn’t doubting if I was good enough to be a blogger. Luckily I was surrounded by a bunch of awesome ladies who picked me up and showed me otherwise. These ladies have been my friends for a year now and I couldn’t imagine life without them. So no matter how many mosquito bites I got on my butt from my toilet, I will always be grateful for @pangeadreams for brining us together. Link in bio to read all about the good, the bad and the ugly moments of my Pangea Dreams Bali retreat. 💃🏽

Tell me in the comments, have you ever used an outdoor toilet? 😂 I’m kidding. Have you met anyone through work who has become a close friend? 💞

Although I went to New Orleans for @ouiwegirl’s Creative Immersion, I stayed a few extra days to explore this magical place for myself. ✨ If I combined the extra activities I did with Andi (such as tarot card reading) and Michael (such as eating large quantities of gumbo) into a guide for what to do in New Orleans, would you be interested? Drop a 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♂️🙋🏿‍♀️in the comments below if so!

Unlike Christ the Redeemer, it doesn’t matter what time of day you visit Sugar Loaf, as there is so much space on the viewing platforms up there. This particular spot is on the right, round the corner as you leave the cable car. 🚠 .

The Contemporary Art Museum in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, is the iconic work of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. In his words, it emerges from the ground and continuously spreads and grows like a flower rising from the rocks. In my words, it’s the big spaceship thing that Michael dragged me to but then didn’t want to pay to go inside. 👽 .

Created by Chilean artist, Jorge Selarón, these 250 steps feature tiles from over 60 countries. He started in 1990 and continued to add them until his death in 2013. 🇧🇷
.
.
To make the most out of your visit to Escadaria Selarón, arrive at 7am. It’s a 20min Uber ride from Copacabana. Any later than 8am and the queue will start to build to take photos at the bottom, and that doesn’t mean people aren’t standing in the background. 🇧🇷

Expectation vs reality... Getting a photo with Christ the Redeemer was nearly impossible. We were the first ones up but didn’t have the place to ourselves for a second before the crowds appeared. Never mind the fact that all shots have to be from below. 😬 My tip? Cover your seven chins with you hand or embrace them, swipe to see how I did both. 😂

Did you catch my recent blog post that lists the 6 best murals in Nashville? It’s ok, I’m not angry, I’m just... disappointed. You can redeem yourself at the link in my bio though! 💙

Tying sarongs is hilarious...apparently. 🤷🏽‍♀️
Stretching out for 4km, Copacabana beach is the longest beach in Rio de Janeiro. Prior to the Copacabana Palace opening in 1923, the beach only ever saw fisherman. It’s now one of the most famous beaches in the world. 🏖 .
