The Girl From Ipanema Now in Texas
Howdy! I’m Viviane, and I created this blog to share tips to inspire you to live your best version by feeling and seeing all the beauty that is already in you.
I’m from Rio de Janeiro and moved to Texas in 2014 for love … There you go, you just learned one thing about me: I take chances in love and in life, I would rather get things done than play with the “ifs”. And so far, I’m up in the game!
In Houston, I learned to say ‘Howdy’, ‘Y’all’ and NOT to say ‘bless your heart’. From the lack of beach, family, and friends, I dove deeper into my yoga practice, learned about football (the American), became a Rockets fan, and gave up understanding baseball. I also became a mom of two dogs and one human. I went from being a workaholic to becoming a stay home mom, and I sucked. I got back to work, but with different priorities. I slowed down and life got easier.
I’m a geologist by background and a writer by heart. And assuming that you don’t want to read about rocks, and the fact that I don’t want to write about them, I created The Rio Thing to talk about everything I love, except rocks.
The Rio thing is me being a doer instead of a dreamer. It has my heart and soul in every word, image, and video. And it’s all for you.
