underbara du.
rachel, 24, beach bum, yoga teacher, island girl. i think... there is always two sides to every story (sometimes three or four, but that usually means there is tequila involved). as to life. it's not black or white, it's black and white and hopefully pink and sparkly inbetween... you can teach yoga and still love to party. meditate and ignore your spending problems. be vegan and eat too much chocolate. have a swedish passport and live in the caribbean. you can do anything, as long as its you.

the beat of your heart is the rhythm of your soul.
underbara du -
wonderful, you.

Look at this beautiful kale burger! I could have doubled that kale though (I’m slightly obsessed)… Sprouted burger bun, organic veggie patty, one slice of aged Gouda topped with Tamari sautéed kale. HEAVEN. Now, strawberry/chamomile/dandelion tea, sea salted chocolate and very old reruns of sex and the city. What are you up to?

The sun set today, again. Some things stay the same. Most things change. Today was a difficult day and that’s the same as most days this past month. But if most things change that means this will probably change, too. I will feel ok again. I will. The sunset was beautiful. And tomorrow is another day.

Try new things. Changing your perspective once in a while allows you to see your situation for what it really is.


Don’t be bothered with the noise. Go sit and be silent.

It’s Gratitude Monday! It’s been a while since I shared my gratitude so here we go:


Today I am so incredibly grateful for my dogs. I slept with Ringo curled up in my arms all night and Pepper by my feet and I went for a run with all four this morning. I absolutely adore them and the unconditional love they give each person they see; happiness really is a dog! No matter what mood I’m in they are there wagging their tails excited just to be here. I strive to be more like them every day.


Also, I’m grateful for all the work I got done today. The coconut water I just drank. And for the Aruban sun😊


What are you grateful for? Share it and tag #GratitudeMonday so we can all share and connect in thankfulness!❤️ #love #light #gratitude

Ended our last night in Brazil with a bang! This is me, dancing wild ass samba with some dude in a bar. Dennis is in the back dancing with an older lady😊 At first this guy was just teaching me the steps (but who are we kidding, samba is all about pretending like you totally know what you’re doing when really you’re just going with the flow) and all of a sudden he swung me upside down and all around! It was pretty awesome. We danced some more and then I taught him how to handstand. That was awesome, too😎


Brazilians are wild! And full of life. I love it. See you next year! Xoxo💃💃💃
