Who to Follow | @spiritedpursuit

A couple of years ago, I set an intention to travel to new and amazing places.  Unfortunately, this was around the same time that I exited corporate America. I haven't had much time to go on exotic getaways while in the early stages of building a business.

To appease my desire to experience new and exciting environments, I've been living vicariously through the lives of others.  As a matter of fact, I came across a new muse this past week that gained an instant follow.

The young traveler behind the Spirited Pursuit brand is Lee Litumbe. She's a self-proclaimed nomad with a pure and intense passion for travel.

What I love about her Instajournal is that Lee isn't only seen frolicking on sandy beaches. Instead, she seems to relish in experiencing the rich cultures of the places she explores.   Her love of photography is clearly evident in the images Lee shares of her adventures.  Notice how Lee serves us endless style inspiration in all of her amazing posts.  Her strong sense of style is what I like to call, "wanderlust chic."

My favorite post of Lee's is the one where she answers the question on everyone's mind.  How does one afford to finance endless escapades to faraway lands?
Here's Lee's advice on how to afford your own life of adventure.

"I've been asked a lot lately about how I can afford to do what I'm currently doing. My best advice is this: think about how much you may spend on eating at restaurants, shopping for new shoes/clothes, or nights out partying with friends. Imagine if instead of doing some of those things, you saved your money. When I was still in the States I never went out to fancy dinners, I never went shopping, I hardly ever partied with friends. That’s how I was able to save a bit up to be able to travel."

Her wise words serve as a friendly reminder to put our money where our goals are.  That, ladies & gentlemen, is exactly how to transform your life into a lifestyle.   
And what a beautiful lifestyle it is.

  1. I love her aesthetic! I follow her on Tumblr. I also love the fact that more black women are traveling and sharing their stories.

  2. Makes sense. You don't have to be rich to travel, just very determined and passionate
