About the beauty backpacker

Hello! Welcome to The Beauty Backpacker.

I'm a travel + beauty blogger and vlogger, out to explore our beautiful planet and discover the diversity of beauty and the world's best beauty traditions along the way.

I'm a self-confessed travel junkie (50+ countries and counting), bit by the travel bug at an early age thanks to my adventurous parents and my mixed Latin and American upbringing. I’m a New Orleans and Florida girl by birth but a Londoner, and global wanderer, by choice. 

And then, there's beauty. Nothing makes me happier than perfecting my night-time skincare routine 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 cheap flight. 


But what I love most is the sheer diversity of beauty, beauty rituals and local beauty brands that can be found across the globe. This blog is all about celebrating these; from the quirkiest spa treatments (mud bath, anyone?) to the most unheard of beauty rituals and beauty brands that make a woman feel gorgeous in her part of the world. 

Here, I share each and every travel adventure, my very best travel guides and travel tips and my most exciting beauty discoveries from around the world. I hope my little corner of the web inspires your next travel adventure, your first-ever solo female trip or a brilliant spa break with all the badass women in your life.

Happy exploring and please do say hello!
