If you were following my Instagram while I was in Brazil a few weeks ago you were probably over exposed to my surreal romance with heading south of the equator again. I am yet to post my photo and video diaries from Brazil, where I hope can justify my affection for my time there. I honestly have no idea why I hadn’t aimed at getting to South America sooner instead waiting for something to come up with reason to go, and kept returning to Europe that I knew better to travel more comfortably on my own. After being refreshed and excited with Brazil I realised how much I would love to spend weeks and months travelling South America, and hope that that can come true one day. Thank goodness this collaboration with Luiza Barcelos came about, because I have absolutely fallen in love with it within just 8 short, whirlwind days and cannot wait to get back.
