week in my life / living in Costa Rica

hey friends! it’s been awhile 🙂 On January 1st of this year I moved back to Costa Rica after living in Europe for a little while. it’s been the best decision and i feel so lucky to call this little caribbean town home. a reminder that social media is a highlight reel and the reason why i took a little hiatus was because i was feeling really unhappy and my life wasn’t looking nearly this joyful. now that i’m finally feeling good again i’ve been inspired to make content and share my life but life has its ebbs and flows of course. i’ve archived quite a few old videos and my creative juices are flowing so enjoy my little re-introduction to youtube and a week in my life xx
