theblondeabroad Wash away your troubles with some bubbles! 🛁 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I have fine hair, so it's hard to find a conditioner that won't weigh my hair down. @HerbalEssences new line of foam conditioners are specially designed for weightless moisture-- plus they're SO much fun to use and can be used root to tip!

theblondeabroad Let go and reconnect 🌲 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I spent a few days this past summer exploring Québec to disconnect from the every day hustle. It was amazing to see the beauty of this destination, and to have so many diverse experiences with @tourismeQuébec in just a few days. I camped lakeside, went zip lining through the forest, tried delicious gourmet specialties (including poutine of course!), and relaxed at a floating spa that was once an operating ferry boat. There's so much to be explored in and just outside of the city. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 🌿 LINK IN BIO TO LEARN MORE 🌿 #QuebecOriginal

theblondeabroad Tea time ☕️🍃🕓 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Finally visited the @belmondmountnelsonhotel in #CapeTown! This iconic hotel was painted pink 100 years ago, and is a mix of old Hollywood glamour and colonial grandeur! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mtnelson #fujifilmx_us #southafrica #teatime #tbapresets
theblondeabroad That’s a wrap on @TBAescapes 2nd South Africa Photography Tour with @fujifilmx_us! 📷 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• For the last 9 days, I’ve been showing an incredible group of women around some of my favorite spots in South Africa! We dug deep into Cape Town— watched the sunset from Clifton Beach, hiked to the top of Lion’s Head, experienced aerial views of the coastline from a helicopter, explored the colorful neighborhood of Bo-Kaap, ate our hearts out at the Old Biscuit Mill, and took a tour around the street art of Woodstock. We experienced a Big 5 Safari at @gondwanagr— complete with hippos, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras! And we sipped our way through the Cape Winelands— indulging in fancy wine pairings and farm-to-table food at @boschendal wine farm. It was an absolute blast and I’m so fortunate to have shared the experience with such a wonderful group of women. Huge shout out to @meyercapetown, @tailsofamermaid and @laurlucore for being incredible hosts! I can’t wait to welcome our next group next week!

theblondeabroad Colorful Cape Town 💚💗💙 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I’ve never been able to visit #BoKaap without being surrounded by people and cars. Except for today— we felt like we had the entire neighborhood to ourselves (swipe right to see what I mean!) Successful Sunday on Day 2 of @TBAescapes South Africa Photography Tour! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Edited with @tbapresets | #capetown #tbaescapes #southafrica #tbapresets

theblondeabroad I'm always looking for ways to simplify my beauty routine on the road 🌹 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• When I'm traveling, there are two things that are important to me: not having to reapply makeup or product when I'm out for the day, and not having to pack a ton of toiletries. I use @Olay Regenerist Whip in the morning as a lightweight moisturizer that eliminates shine throughout the day. It also takes the place of a makeup primer so I can travel with less -- win, win! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Read more about it on the blog, and check the link in bio for your own free sample! #FeelTheWhip #Ad

theblondeabroad Oh hai! I’m Kiki! 👋🏻 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper introduction. I know many of you just started following my journey, and many of you have been following from the start (6 years ago!), and I’d love to get to know you better! Here are a few things you might not have known about me: 1) I studied martial arts and have my black belt in Taekwondo 🥋 2) I still sleep with my baby blanket 👶🏼 3) I’m a California girl living in Cape Town (hence my love for In N Out) 🍔🍟 4) I’m obsessed with Harry Potter and terrified of heights 🤓⚡️ 5) I have my degree in Financial Planning and left my career to backpack and volunteer abroad (the blog came a year later!) 💼 🎒 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Your turn! Where are you from? Share something interesting about yourself! ❤️ (PS you can read my full “About Me” in the link in my bio!)
theblondeabroad Last year alone, I spent 542 hours flying. Anyone that's been on a long-haul flight knows just how drying the circulated air of an airplane cabin can be. I can't always beat the jet lag, but I always try to beat dehydration. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Advanced Night Repair by @esteelauder is my go-to travel serum – it keeps my skin hydrated on flights and on the road! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #ad

theblondeabroad No WiFi. No problem. 🌳 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• One of the best parts of our trip to #Botswana was being completely disconnected for a week. It might sound silly, but I don’t often find time to do “nothing.” We were so remote at #SableAlley that we spent our days watching hippos from the lodge, and falling asleep in the afternoons reading books as light rain fell from the heavens. This was truly one of the most perfect places I have ever been. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• @naturalselectiontravel #safari #africa
