Live life bold. Blaze your own trail, live life on your own terms and be unapologetic about who your are and what you like.

Lisa in Costa RicaThe Dame International was started in 2011 as a means to curate the kind of lifestyle magazine that I would like to read that would feature art, tattoos, travel, fashion, interiors, people and life advice that I could relate to and use to connect with other like minded people.

In 2016, my blog became solely focused on art and travel.

My readers are smart, sassy and have a passion for new adventures. They value choosing for themselves and living life on their own terms.

You can find a round up of my best stuff here.

Hi, my name is Lisa.

I’m originally from South Africa. I immigrated to the UK in 1999 and have traveled and volunteered all over the world. This is where I share my love for life’s adventures.

The Fun Details

I enjoy art, tattoos, horse riding, longboard surfing and skating, dancing, travel, photography, writing and design.  I am also a slightly obsessive cat lover. My heroines are Mae West, P!nk and Juliette Lewis. In 2014 I graduated from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition as an Integrative Health Coach.
