Bloom And Glow

MEET your GUIDES

We’ve been there. Working long hours, rarely making time for ourselves, and not listening enough to our inner voice.

Mindfulness and nature were two things that allowed us to see our life from a more balanced perspective. We opened our eyes for the first time and realized that we postponed our true dreams for too long.

As soon as we created space for self-care and learned how to keep stress at healthy levels, creativity and courage flourished.

We created Bliss & Stars to share our passions, our long-life learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear.
