Welcome to the Beauty Backpacker.


I'm a travel + beauty blogger / vlogger wandering the globe exploring everything our beautiful planet has to offer and capturing the diversity of beauty and local beauty traditions along the way.

I'm a self-confessed travel junkie (40+ countries and counting), bit by the travel bug at an early age thanks to my adventurous parents and my mixed Latin + American upbringing. I’m a New Orleans and Florida girl by birth but a Londoner, and global wanderer, by choice. 

But then, there's beauty. Nothing makes me happier than perfecting my night-time skincare routine, reinventing my "no makeup" makeup look or applying my signature red lip. I can embarrassingly admit that I once chose to splurge on a £40 lip balm instead of a £40 flight. By Terry's Baume de Rose anyone?

But what I really love is the rich diversity of beauty and beauty rituals from around the globe. This little corner of the internet is here to celebrate what makes each woman and her unique look (infused by local beauty traditions) so beautiful.  

So, to make a long story short, in 2017 I decided to strap on my backpack, pack up my beauty essentials and start a trip around the world to live out my two passions. 

I share each and every adventure, my best beauty discoveries and my finest travel tips and inspiration and here.

I hope you enjoy!
