A BIT OF MY LIFE
I’m Juliana Vasconcelos, born and raised in Recife-Pernambuco Brasil and when I turned 18 years old, I left home to pursue a modelling career. I could not speak a word of English and I travelled all over Asia and Europe. I ended up coming to South Africa where I fell in love – not only the beautiful country but also found my true love here too.
After a few years of travelling, I decided to base myself in the Mother City of Cape Town and began studying marketing in 2010. My best friend and I opened a store in Cape Town called "Periquita", where we sold beautiful swimwear and gymwear imported from Brasil. After three years, we both went separate ways when I moved to Johannesburg, pregnant with my second child, and she moved to London. It was a wonderful journey and I learned so much from it.
I am a mother to two beautiful and busy boys, and stepmother to Matisse. While juggling motherhood, I decided to do something for myself and studied to become a yoga instructor in 2018. I have always loved yoga and everything related to fitness.
Now that my children are bigger and at school, I have to decided it’s time for a new and exciting adventure. I started this website and blog to share a bit of my life, and my favourite fitness, beauty, travel and food tips with you all. I will also be selling some really amazing products, which I will share with you soon, so be sure to keep an eye on this site!
I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
With love from me!
