What We Do
Founder of Footloose Lemon Juice, Charlotte, works as a content and marketing assistant in a theatre and a church. 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.
There have been enough tears to drown a nation, but also I met the love of my life on the streets of Rio de Janeiro.

You can learn about previous life in Italy from my interview in expat.com here.
A broad selection of topics spanning from my home town and tourist hub Rio de Janeiro, to the winding villages of the State of Minas Gerais’ countryside.
To get you started try:
Writing is therapeutic. As is pouring your heart out and laughing at yourself through storytelling.
Start with the following anecdotes:
Or dive into our moving abroad resources:
After years pondering starting a blog, we took the plunge to move to Italy. It was less than the fairytale situation where I ended up living in an Italian industrial estate and Henrique (my husband) in a medieval fortified village. I found myself jobless, Italianless 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. 3 root canal sessions later, 1 without an anesthetic, 3 without facemasks, and I drew the line. This was too good to keep to myself.
One of the first blogs was RIP crabs – when Henrique serenaded me with live crustanceans that I then had to slowly freeze to death and boil up into a broth. The 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. Lol, I do not have the compassion 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 5 years and only twice beat my husband.
I can eat Lime Chili Doritos until I can’t feel my face.
I taught English in Brazil for 3 years and now teach Portuguese at the University of Denver.
House plants took over my life. There’s 15 of them in my 600 square ft apartment.
Born in ’92.
I moved to Brazil to study abroad in an exchange program in 2014. During this time, I met my now husband, Henrique. We married 4 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 on a bunch of words and tenses.
