What We Do
Founder of Footloose Lemon Juice, Charlotte, works as a content and marketing consultant. You’ll find her in a hammock at weekends making digital watercolour art and sampling Brazil’s BBQ.
I’ve lived all over the place, but Rio de Janeiro is my home.
This is my Brazil blog, a gift to other wanderers.
There have been enough tears to drown a nation and I also met the love of my life on the streets of Rio de Janeiro.

After years pondering starting a Brazil blog, we took the plunge to move to Italy. It was less than the fairy tale situation where I ended up living in an Italian industrial estate and Henrique (my husband) in a medieval fortified village. I found myself jobless, Italian-less and with few prospects.
One day I woke up with a cheek puffed up like a hamster and the headache only befitting of a root canal. Three root canal sessions later, one without an anesthetic, three without face masks, and I drew the line. This was too good to keep to myself.
The Brazil blog took off from there.
I’m from Manchester, UK, from a small suburb called Cheadle Hulme.
I used to want to be a vet. I lack the compassion and stomach for that career.
I took a gap year working and then traveling to Ecuador for 3 months. Myself and Latin America have been inseparable ever since.
I’ve played tennis for 8 years and only twice beat my husband.
I can eat salt & vinegar crisps (chips) until I can’t feel my lips.
I taught English in Brazil for 3 years and now teach Portuguese.
House plants rule my life.
I moved to Brazil to study abroad in an exchange program in 2014. During this time, I met my now husband, Henrique. We married four years later in England and had a repeat party a year later in the same place, but with friends and family flying in from around the world.
Yes, I graduated from University of Liverpool in Latin American Studies. Half my degree was languages (Spanish and Portuguese) the other half culture and history.
This is my 10th year studying Portuguese and I still fumble.
