Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:

Cape Town, South Africa

The funny thing is that before moving to an island (magical minuscule Mauritius), Renee would have been able to list all of her credentials in a heartbeat. But island life slows you down. It does it without you even realizing it. And before you know it, you’re one of those people. You know, the ones who say things like, “Don’t worry, it’s all good,” “Just chill bru,” and “I’ll get to it tomorrow.”

So before she allows the island haze to completely cloud her thoughts, she’ll start by saying that she is a wife and a mom. She is an observer. She has an eternal fascination with people and their intricate personalities. She used to be a professional photographer back in the land of Continent, but island life tends to put the breaks on things like that. The key is to find the new and stroke it and pet it and make it your own. If you give it enough love and attention, it may very well love you back (or you may lose a finger). Either way, it’s an adventure. You can follow her island days on Instagram @mauritiusislandlife.
